Nirmala and Normala


"Why isn’t life like the movie? For that matter, why aren’t movie like your life? Nirmala and Normala are twins separated at birth. *dramatic music* While one goes on to become a heroine, the other goes on to become a normal person. Yes, we know we should put ‘normal’ in quotes. We also know that we should issue a disclaimer that there’s no such thing as normal. But, really, let’s talk about that later. If you’ve ever sat through a movie wondering why in the world the heroine is playing with street children or why she seems so daft despite being Harvard-educated, you should listen to Nirmala’s story. As for Normala, well, we all know her, don’t we?"
