Is my scarf too bright for your eyes??
For some or the other reason I can never figure out what wrong is my scarf doing to you? Why you look at it with those weird eyes?? I bet, if my scarf would have been a living thing, it would have hanged itself or hid its face or left the world to become a sanayasi or would have cried all day, thanks to those strange expression of your wide eyes. Thankfully, it’s just a piece of cloth wrapped around my head, doing harm neither to me nor to you. But still, somehow I always feel you are uncomfortable with my scarf. Why??
Is it too bright for your eyes??
Is it making you feel hot in this climate??
Is it making you feel uneasy??
Is it too stylish and makes you feel out of fashion??
Is it making you feel oppressed??
Is it making you feel knowledge less??
Is it making you feel guilty??
Is it making you feel ugly??
Is it blocking your nose with foul smell?
Is it terrorising you??
Don’t tell me your answer is yes to any of the above questions. :D :D. I can only laugh while I look back at the above questionnaire. :P :P Still I shall try to answer these.
I chose my scarf so that it should go with maximum dresses. So either it will be black or off-white (most of the time) or complementing my dress (depends). I left wearing bright dresses also since I took hijab. So it is clear that my scarf is not giving you any color blindness. No. 1 reason is ruled out.
My scarf, on my head should make me feel hot or you?? C’mon. Those people who tell me they feel hot seeing the scarf on my head really puzzle me up. How can that be? Pls pls be a little sane.
Again, why are you feeling uneasy? It is me who is hooded in this open head crowd. If at all someone is feeling uneasy it should be me but I am here fresh and smiling as always. So why are you uneasy?
Too stylish?? Yay!! If this is the reason then I am more than happy. But wait a sec a scarf hiding your hair, forehead and pretty much every part till shoulder except your face, how can it be stylish?? A world where even Britney is held as a fashion icon, a scarf has little hope but to be considered anything but stylish. *Sigh*
These days oppressed is the word associated proudly by whole world to Muslim girls. So I think I should have not put this question at all in the list. My mistake.
I have already commented in my blog that scarf is the least thing that can make me look knowledge less, leave aside your case. But still if some m#$%^& think that girls in scarf are uneducated and sans knowledge, I will love to have a talk with them.
My hijab which automatically draws line of modesty around me, if it is making you feel guilty of the fact that you are too blind to run in the fashion marathon at stake of your modesty and decency, then I am thankful to god that he chose me to make you realize the fact. * Least possibility though*
:D :D I think I look cute with the scarf (I hardly care what you think) so being around me won’t make you ugly. Rather, may be, you would be looking more beautiful being with me.
I wash, wash, and wash my scarf every day. So even if it’s the same black scarf the second day too, then probably it’s the dustbin in the corner of the room which smells but not my scarf. Mind you x-( x-(
Last and may be the only sane reason in the list, it might be terrorizing you. If it is, please be afraid of the Ram Sene that they probably drag you to your home (if you are a girl) or beat you up for “dating” a Muslim (if you are a guy) than wasting your time thinking what I might be hiding under my scarf. An AK-47? Ya right.
So, I think it’s better you tell me what’s wrong with my scarf and what this innocent pale looking thing has done to you than passing those weird looks filled with disgust, uneasiness, weirdness and God only knows what all. I love my scarf and I feel for it.
