Promise me, honey..that you will move ahead in life..you will not mourn my absence…I will be watching you…
You remember Capt. Singh? He will be a good suitor…will ask mom to talk to his family….look here for god sake..speak your heart out..assure me that you will fulfill my last desire “….he squeezed her hand while trying to yield a reaction from her side…

She sat beside him in the hospital room….he was about to be wheeled in for his surgery…

“Well, I can’t see you unhappy…I want you to live and die in peace….so despite all the odds n much against my will…I surrender to your last wish, my love…..I give my affirmation to marry Capt. Singh…..” she gave her reluctant consent…

He just closed his eyes n let those precious pearls roll down…

She got up and walked out…she couldn’t take it anymore…

The red bulb outside the OT was shining bright….she sat there patiently…

a few hours later-

She was sitting beside him in the same room….he lay there calm..in deep slumber, motionless.
her eyes were deprived of sleep…she looked woeful, tired and somewhat melancholic….
Suddenly she was jolted out of the trail of her thoughts by a gentle voice of her mother in law…..
“Beta….it’s alright, control yourself…do not look so woebegone…it was destined to happen….” she wrapped her loving arms around her in a warm embrace…

“Ma….sorry I can’t help it…I am actually quite grief stricken…my alliance with Capt. Singh came to an end even before it could take off .rishta shuru hone se pehle toot gaya….I too have heart ma…it pain…every time it breaks” she said softly

“What…..?so it was Capt Singh this time…god this son of mine is such a drama….who was it last time when he had viral fever???dammit tell him it was just an appendix removal….nobody dies in an appendix removal surgery…men are so sissy at times…they become like little puppies when they fall sick, unlike women who stay so strong …..gosh I can understand bahu…btw Capt Singh was not a bad choice, after all, eh” she said mischievously
Both the ladies burst out laughing ………..their laughter was so loud that the sleeping Buddha also woke up…
“Ladies…quiet…I have just had a major surgery….wonder how I survived…” he sounded sedated still…

“Yes son… we wonder too…you bet -major major surgery……your surviving is a miracle, my son…”

They once again burst out laughing…while lovingly looking at this man in a sedated state who was clueless about the Khurafat going in between the two most beautiful women in his life
