Rose Petal tissues. Kiwi shoe polish. Fauji cornflakes. Nurpur butter. Rose Petal tissues in Mamaís hands. Shaukat shining my fatherís shoes with Kiwi she polish by rubbing the shoes with a thick bristled brush. He periodically presses the brush against the shoe polish which is in a circular metal container. Fauji cornflakes in a stoneware bowl. Nurpur butter, golden against my toast which I like slightly burnt. Our kitchen had rust coloured tiles decorating it. When the sunshine came in through the windows it shined. We used to sit at a pinewood table that had become slightly unsteady over time.
