Dismantled Podiums

We had got these beautiful marble statues of Ram, Lakshman, Sita and Shreekrishna. The statues are around 6 inches high and each has a separate marble podium. The podiums are made up of beautifully crafted pieces.

They are with us for quite some time now. And, required cleaning. The work on podium is so delicate and minute just dusting was not enough. So I took all those 4 podiums and immersed them in tub filled with water. After an hour, I checked again, to dry them and put them back.

But whoa!!

They all were dismantled! All those pieces were stuck together with some adhesives and they all were separated out.

After 3-4 hours of hard work I got to put them back together. But unfortunately something was miscalculated and Sita and ShreeKrishna Statues refused to fit back in their own podiums. It was impossible to figure out as to what happened exactly. So we just took out backs of the podiums made more space so the statues can fit in L

So is the life. Sometimes, few things get dismantled when you don’t really intend them to be. You just realize it a tad to later that something is wrong. Most of the time, you can piece it together with some thought and consideration. But careful, little miscalculation and it would remain wrong for the rest of the life!
