After all, its just a storyWink

Hate Swiss Air

Part 1

Sam called when he waited for the gate announcement at Zurich International 
"Are you still going to pretend you dont know me" she screamed

"Sam" he grunted... Samyukta, she was five years older, as tall as he was, TALLER she claimed, fair and leggy, he puked a bit at that thought about his own sister.
"Raman, I am serious" she shrieked
"What the hell is wrong with you" he barked
"Tch Tch" he scolded

"OK three f**kING YEARS you moron, GET OVER IT" she yelled

"My gate got called, I have to take the sky train I will call you back" he told coldly
"OH NO OH NO! NOT THAT AGAIN... you are Zurich arent you?" she said
He looked at his phone... "HOW did she know? He panicked...
"I can hear the Swiss in the background genius" she responded
"I gotta go Sam" he said carelessly."You hang up and I am calling Interpol and pinning some money laundering fraud on you and dragging your sorry ass back home"
He laughed out loud... a SwissAir gate agent looked at him admiringly

He was over 6 feet tall... when he smiled e cleft formed on his left cheek... DIMPLE his other sister would mock him Manya, Manny to him... 
he never adddressed either sister by Di or Didi... it irritated his Mom... His smiled vanished at the thought...the Red Plus sign...on the plane that pulled into the nearest gate magnified in his line of vision 

the Swiss Air logo almost a warning... exactly like a warning

He picked up his overstuffed back pack and wound his way to Skytrain terminal... the flight to London LX316 was in three hours
"Are you there?" Sam came on... she had put him on hold...

"hmmm" he grunted"
"Have you stopped talking altogether?
'"What do u want to know Sam" irritated
"I want you home R&B " she ordered... Rhythm & Blues was his nickname... for Raman Bhalla
"I am not going to" he said unemotionally
"Do u even care if I had my baby?" she asked agonized...

"Its not like it wont come out if I dont make it he said careless"
"Its the most insensitive mean thing youve ever said you jerk" Sam teared up
He felt like a heel... but continued on... his white cotton shirt was crumpled... he hadnt taken a shower at the First Class Lounge... he took a nap instead..
"R&B please get home sweet heart, Chachu is back doing his thing u know" Sam begged
"The old man deserves it" Raman said punitively "He should rob him of all his money and leave him on the streets" Raman said scathingly
Sam sucked her breath in... dismayed "R&B PLEASE"
Raman did not apologize...
"Raman please, DONT SAY THAT"
"Oh I will... I will say that and MORE SAM"
She sobbed...
"I cant make it before the end of the month" he said grudingly...
"Have you met Manny?" she asked sadly...
"DID U JUST SAY U ARE COMING HOME?" she shrieked...
He got on the Sky Train... "I might cut off" he mumbled...
Rubbing his 5 O Clock shadow...
"You are coming home, you are coming home, I am so happy R&B... I am going to send Tanmay to the airport" she giggled betweebn sobs
"Have you had that baby yet?" he asked kindly
"Its not coming out until u show up u moron" she said happily
He smiled... as she hung up, the sky train sped past Terminal 2 and 3 and glided to 4... he looked at Departures and scanned for LX316 Zurich to London...
DELAYED it flashed, as he swore colorfully... his THIRD cancelled/delayed in 18 hours..."Never flying this goddamn airline again" he cursed


"Amma enakku vendaam" Ishita Iyer squealed as Amma piled yet another steaming hot idli on her plate...
Appa looked up from his newspaper, the R K Puram Sector 12 Government flat in South Delhi was East facing... Appa enjoyed the early morning December 
sunshine sipping his second dose coffee

Ishita tucked her Burberry shirt into her black dress pants, her lonnng braid swung as she shook her head...
"One more kanna" Amma cooed
"NOOO Amma" Ishita said sternly...
Appa shifted in his chair "let her be, if she doesnt want to eat" he said
"She has to go to Gurgaon" Amma said worried
"Shes beenm going to Gurgaon for SIX MONTHS Amma" Ishita mocked talking about herself in third person
Amma was miffed, she walked into the kitchen where the Tamil maid engaged her in conversation about a new flower vendor at Malai Mandir.
"do u like your job kanna?" Appa asked
LOVE IT Appa" Ishita gushed...
Appa stared at her... sombrely... "No trace of grief" he wondered... the young 27 year old... was headed to her job at the Professional Accounting firm...
She had topped her class at IIM Bangalore... at the mention of IIM Appa shifted uncomfortably... even a mention in thoughts did that to him
Ishita checked her phone... "5 minute, aap pehle mujhse milo phir hum dono client ke paas jaayenge" she said anf hung up quickly
Amma HATED it when anyone talked on the phone while eating

She took a quick sip of the scalding hot filter coffee...
"What will you be doing now?" Appa asked distracted

Appa had asked this Q a atleast 5 times, she smiled... it was his own way of making convo... "I am like a Deployment Mgr AND a certified CPA Appa"
"So u guys bought that software?" Huh?" he asked
"Mr Bansal bought the whole company Appa" she said PROUD...
Her eyes gleamed with hope and ambition...
"As long as they dont ask you to SELL stuff" Appa said bitterly
Ishita looked up from her email... "No Appa I wont sell, whoever buys it I will be the first point of contact for deployment" she said clinically

Her throat clogged up at the word Sales... she got up didnt say goodbye to Amma she just let herself out, and stepped down... a string of white ambassadors lined the block... all Govt Babus...
the drivers wiping and washing and wiping them off, she headed to towards her Toyota Corolla... silver... and used the keyless entry.. 
it clicked multiple times...threw her laptop case in the back seat...and suddenly rememebred she didnt say bye to Amma
"Bye Ma" she texted...The phone was programmed to Suryan FM, her fave Vidyasagar song from an Ajeeth movie started to play, she reversed gently..
"Bye Kanna drive safe" Amma texted back...
her phone flashed a Reuters Newsflash "Swiss Air in deal with Airbus to buy 30 planes"
"DON'T CARE, NEVER flying YOU guys again" she said in frustration as her tires screeched  as she floored the gas... and turned towards Ring Road
