Sonarika was  lighting the incense when Prerna started yelling at her.

“Its bedtime now,” she said,” You lit the incense in the morning, then again at sunset. So why now?”


“To ward off all evil spirits,” said Sonarika arranging each incense in the stand,”We just moved in yesterday. God knows what all entities have been residing in here.”

“God save me,” said Prerna,”there are no entities here. Its just the two of us. First sandalwood incense, then jasmine incense and now its time for the roses. Are you trying to ward off the evil spirits or making them more comfortable in here?”

“Dont talk rubbish,” said Sonarika,”what I am doing is really important. We must keep our place pure and cleansed.”

“And what about that big ugly cockroach in the washroom!” yelled Prerna,” Have you done something about it?”

“This girl,” said Sonarika,”Here I  am talking about negative energies and………………”

“And now you are planning to suffocate me with all this smoke,”said Prerna,”one incense was more than enough. Why so many?”

“Dont forget,” said Sonarika,” Your grandma says that……….”

“Dont drag grandma into this,” said Prerna,” She believes that storms are created by angry monsters and symbolise a battle high up in the skies. All I want  for you to do is……………….Hold on, now why are you taking out that huge candle? We have electricity here.”

“Sure we do but if we bless this candle flame with a prayer, then it will cleanse and purify this place.”

“Then what are the incense for?” yelled Prerna,” To annoy me on purpose?”

“They both serve the same purpose,” said Sonarika,” Its just that……….”

“You want to make sure that our bedroom looks like a spell casting chamber,” said Prerna angrily,” and then we can happily declare our victory against the dark entities, if any exist at all. I cant believe that you love all this airy fairy stuff.”

“And I cant believe,” said Sonarika,” that you love to study about happiness and its statistics yet you cant see the relevance of these little things. What do they teach you at “The Fairy Kissed Institute?”

“Not again,” said Prerna throwing a cushion at Sonarika,” For heaven sake, I have told you a thousand times that the name has now been changed to “The Bliss Research Academy” and we work on serious issues like abandonment, loneliness, sleeplessness and many more. Thank God they changed the name. It was so weird!”

“Weird is the new awesome!” said Sonarika,” Havent you heard this? Anyway, now quickly pull out an oracle card from this deck. Lets see what our angels have to say.”

“Our angels?” said Prerna making a sleepy face,” Spare them now, they have all gone to bed. I bet they too arent interested in inhaling any of your sage smoke. They must be sleeping in the heavens and here I am tolerating all your witchy practices.”

“You dont understand,” said Sonarika,” Our guardian angels……………

O my! This candle flame is flickering. What if some demonic entities are present here?”

“Please,” said Prerna,”Dear demonic entities, this girl is dying to meet you. Please come and take her away with you. And please for heaven sake, gobble up all this smoke too.”
