Radhika eagerly waited for the beautiful Sunday mornings. Humming her favourite song ‘Lag Ja Gale, ke phir ye raat ho na ho….’ she was preparing coffee when Madhav entered the kitchen. ‘So what’s brewing, you seem very happy today?’ ‘You know I so look forward to Sunday mornings, this is the only time you spend with me; you are always busy either with work or helping out other people with their problems. You never have enough time for me, she replied’.
Ok, madam, my entire day is yours today. Let’s have coffee now and stop cribbing, he laughed off. Sipping a hot cup of coffee, Radhika spoke non-stop about her work and kids. Madhav patiently listened. He too missed spending time with family but his work was demanding. He couldn’t even stop himself from denying help to anybody. He went out of his way to do whatever he could for others. That was something he inherited from his grandfather.
Radhika was grateful to God and thanked him daily to have given her Madhav as her life partner. She had a loving family. Her father in law doted on her. He supported her and took care of kids when she went to work. But there was something that she was constantly worried about. Every time she would feel happy, she would dread about her happiness being short-lived. She was scared that she might lose everything soon.
She didn’t want to be the next victim of the sad pattern that the family had succumbed to. She wanted a long married life.
