House Tours

There was less than 100 people left in the hall now, many were napping or relaxing, they had to leave by 10 PM, 
Akka was going to D II tonight as Amma and Appa were in no shape to be by themselves, Janaki Athai, Venkat and Lakshmi were staying over too
Amma was more close to them than her own brothers and their wives
Most Iyer family was heading to the serviced apartments... 
Periappa was being taken back home also, sounds bothered him but he did OK upstairs during Muhurtam, and yet the noise bothered him 
he was heavily sedated, so II  and R&B could only meet him after nalangu

II and R&B had obtained his blessings at an upstairs room ... he appeared confused and dazed when he was woken up 
She had hugged him and cried on his chest as he reclined... R&B stood silently leaning on the doorway... 
"I will come see u every day every week I will still read you the newspaper and tell u about Trisha's wedding... (she giggled)

"Besh besh" he muttered slurred she smiled like he knew there was something different about his favorite niece

She sat by him and leaned on the wall, still in her nine yards and her long braid...
The nurse wandered outside... R&B wandered to his bathroom and got the box of kleenex


"Can I bring him to Malcha Marg sometime?" she asked looking at the box he held

He nodded wordlessly... he wasnt good with words normally, with his new wife sobbing uncontrollably he completely lost control over any vocabulary he ever knew

"Can he stay... with us?" she asked like a child askinga  teacher if Mom can sit in the last bench


He nodded "Isnt that what I just said?" look
He approached her... I love him a lot... 
I almost didnt make it to the world because of him, but hes always been there for me as long as Ive been here.
He sat down by her... "I miss him already, I am going to drive by and see him every evening" she declared
He offered her kleenex

"Its your fault" she said accusingly

He nodded quietly hiding a smile

"I should have let Bally handle Excelsior, "

Buyer's remorse?

She muttered about various things, she told Periappa who all were there at the wedding and her saree colores and apologizing for no selfie

"Can u take our picture?" she asked him, sniffling

He stood up to shoot one...
She showed her Periappa the picture... "I am just going to go for a couple hours, when we come back in the evening I hope u are here. Ivanukku toonganum Periappa (Isko sona hai)

She didnt say IVAR he noticed... like a little secret between him her and Periappa


Appa wandered by the door

"If he eats and sleeps we might keep him here until 8 Kanna after dinner when we leave u can see him then, go take rest and come back" Appa said

She nodded getting up suddenly cheerful...but sniffling. the thought of seeing her family again...

 "Can I bring some payasam for Periappa?" she asked
Appa nodded cheerfully


The nurse went back in... 

Appa: When do u think u guys will return from home?"

R&B: 8?  

We are here until dinner" Appa said "We only have to handover by 10"

R&B nodded
Both men did not know what to say to each other, but they BOTH had ONE thing in mind the gorgeous tall slender girl in madisar that just walked away


"She is very attached to him it would be good if she can see HIM" Appa suggested grumbling?

R&B nodded

"She is the life @ D II" he continued his voice quivering "Her mother will miss her a lot" he lied

R&B nodded politely, arms folded across his chest...

"she is very playful and naughty and wants to get her own way" Appa said... "Many things u know" secretive?

"She sings beautifully" R&B said softly

"Yes yes, she has been learning 22 years? 23 years u know" Appa was charged up trying to rub in hes known II for 28 years. 
She even learnt Bharat Natyam for 4 years, she broke her foot, at Sector 6 park and then did not go back" Appa said as if talking to a friend happy and animated

Suddenly realizing he was sharing more than he should with the "enemy" he stopped

"She loves her career, her job is everything" he said dismissively "U my son in law will never be as important as her job is to her"

Appa was holding on to straws... or he was trying to assert the importance of his role in his daughter's life


Appa never felt so protective of Bala it actually bothered him a lot, WHY DIDNT BALA EVOKE such a reaction in him?


II brought kheer and fed him, he moaned and made an attempt to lean back

She gave the bowl to the nurse

 and got up...


Appa: Take rest and come back kanna for dinner

II nodded hugging him tight


"U can go home and take a nap" she muttered going down the stairs he didnt respond, just walked as close at possible he could to her, lest she run away or something
"I should atleast change how can I go home in madisar? that would be so silly... I dont even feel sleepy right now u know, so u should go sleep"
He chatter had started he was happy to listen
"Onakku meeting irundude 6 O Clock, u should go to that we should have dinner and then we can go wherever" She made plans
"I can hang with my cousins, my friends are now gone I havent hung with my cousins"

Between 19 steps she had spoken 10 SENTENCES he realized... she was a talker...

I COULD STAY HERE IF WE HAVE TO HAVE DINNER HERE HOW CAN WE GO?
Its not even 4:30... WHO SLEEPS at 5 pm?

Amma waited downstairs :Go take rest and come back for dinner kanna

She smiled "Amma I can sleep upstairs?"

Amma looked shocked "Nooo avar enna pannuvaar? (woh kya karenge) "He will be bored raja u should go relax they tell me he loves the balcony so have ur evening chai in Malcha Marg balcony"
Amma hugged her tight crying on her shoulder softly unable to explain to her lil baby "Hes been waiting for today for 3 months now, the fact that he even hung out until 4, he should be awarded for it"
II: Amma azhaada (softly)

Amma: No kanna... I am so happy for you... see kanna moodi kanna tarakarthukkulle avan onn pinnale vandu onna paduthi eduthu kalyanamum pannintaan, nalla pidivadakaarana iruppaan nenaikaren
 ( before we realized he wooed you and he proposed and he married you seems like a stubborn adamant man) Amma sounded very proud and happy of the feat

II: Amma when I come back for dinner I want to quickly go to D II one time

Amma giggled "Ashadu where is that house going? Yes u and Appa can go there its only 10 minutes from here, sure" (silly girl)
He waited patiently hands  in pockets

"She hasnt slept in a week, so thanks for taking her home" Amma said politely

R&B smiled hands out of pocket imemdiately

"She argues a lot and fights for everything" Amma whispered

II: Ammmaaa stop it, avan kitta yenn solrey? (Why are u telling HIM?)

Amma smiled indulgently

Amma:Seee like this... she is the rare combination of deep affection, 
compassion, generosity, COURAGE (Amma cleared her throat unwilling to mention the Subbu disaster) and playfulness. Lots of opinions, always wanting to win" Amma giggled

"I understand Mrs Iyer" R&B said softly, warmly... II noticed the unmistakable glint

II: Avane eppo paar sanda podran, he fights with me all the time, he wants to win too, adu OK va shouldnt he be patient and non combative? 
(There! she has to win this one too)

Amma smiled shyly "Somewhat like this only" she whispered

Amma: When u return for dinner we can talk more (happy)



Sam and Vandu were nowhere around, Amma had sent Sam home for grahapravesh, Chachi and Great Aunt and Vandu were gone too
Bala had taken Shravu and Nandu to Shanti Niketan for playing video games for a few hours
The boys had Monday and Tuesday off to rest...

Appa and Amma came up to the gate, Amma gave her her first tamboolam (the send off gift to a married woman, usually feminine accesories along with sindoor flowers and fruit).. 
II picked up a lil pinch of sindoor between her index finger and thumb and set it nervously in her parting with a mixture of shyness and clumsiness
Amma watched proudly blessed her "Dheerga sumangali bhava" (may u always be a wife")

Appa didnt say anything at first "She is coming for dinner" he declared proudly
Amma:Yes yes...

R&B: I am going to the car?

the silver Ferrari Italia was pinned with red roses here and there, rich and elegant



10s of onlookers watched R&B gas the thing, that costed him Rs.1.6 crores... gawked at the tall slender girl wearing a saree oddly, entered it,
 HE DIDNT HOLD THE DOOR OPEN FOR HER

Amma Appa leaned on the Hall gate... "See u at dinner" both said
II smiled... "Ivan toonginan na na vanduduven" (if he sleeps I will come over) (secret)

"What happened to your car?" II asked shocke

"Engine trouble remember?"

"some of us usually get it fixed" II mocked
He smiled his half smile,His wife's sharp sense of humor was back... so all was not lost in separation grief... Phew!!!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sam & Manny followed Punjabi rituals Akka taught her Iyer, so II & R&B  did the tossing of the grain pot and lighting teh lamp in the prayer room
Ranjan greeted her, hugged her warmly and handed her a scroll tied with a red ribbon
"h! I cant take this" II said panicking  R&B's jaw clenched she didnt notice

Ranjan: Why betaji its your gift

II: Umm.. I wont say anything cheesy Dad I have you I dont need a gift (giggling) But I cant take money and such.. that would be wrong

Chachi stared in wonderment, and curiosity... a girl that doesnt like wealth?

Chacha had given his three DILs  a few acres each in Haryana adjacent to Gurgaon, causing resentment and envy among 2 about HOW MUCH the other got
He finally had to hand them both 5 acres each to "even the scale"
His daughter in laws were worldy wise... 
Bhaisaab had gotten one that was either pretending to be too goody goody  to stake her claim later? stake her claim on ALL Bhalla wealth by killing him with kindness
I mean WHO can say no to what Ranjan gifts?
Clever girl? May be her Amma Appa coached her to "make an impression first?"
Afterall they are educated they must play this game differently? They must have taught their 
daughter a different set of strategy and tactics... nobody is a fool, especially an Iyer girl thats an accountant

or 

II was plain stupid for REAL?

She had to go share that with Chachu tonight...
"We might have a devious manipulative Madrasan or a dumb as a sack of bricks Madrasan" What are the odds its the latter? I bet 60-40... "
Chachi speculated her husband's bets as II sang a prayer in the temple, a Ganpati Abhang

Ranjan placed the scroll at the Lord's feet.. "Its yours, it will be here until you take it"

She squirmed.. unable to nod


I HAVENT MARRIED THE RAKSHASAN FOR HIS WEALTH, I CANT LIVE WITHOUT HIM I WOULD JUST DIE IF SOMEONE TOLD ME I CANT SEE HIM ANY MORE
I AM NOT EVEN SURE WHY HE MARRIED ME, THE FACT THAT HE ASKED ME WAS ENOUGH I WILL NOT SPECULATE I MIGHT HEAR SOMETHING I DONT WANT TO KNOW
I WANT TO SEE THE SCROLL LAY THERE 20 YEARS FROM NOW... IF ERMM... IF WE ARE... STILL... ERMMM
II COULDNT BRING HERSELF TO SAY "STILL MARRIED"

AYYYO ENNADI PANREY... U HAVE BASICALLY WAGERED EVERYTHING YOU HAVE... EVERYTHING. HE DOESNT EVEN KNOW... AYYO II...


Very rarely II's doppleganger comforted her... usually she received abuses and scoldings and threats and warnings and sick jokes
... today was one of those rare occasions she received a hug... or was it... because it started to scold her again

YOU ARE PLAYING WITH A 65 YEAR OLD'S FEELINGS? A 82 YEAR OLD GREAT AUNT'S HOPES? SAM'S LOVE
EVEN MINION... CRUEL AND UNFEELING...  U WANTED TO BE HIS WIFE... U ARE... THEY HAVE NO CLUE HOW YOU BECAME ONE OR HOW LONG U WILL BE ONE
FOOL!!



Sam brought a bunch of sweets and snacks and chai for her, they hung out in the ground floor
Chachi and Great Aunt talked about Punjabi tradition

Sam cried on GA's shoulders... exclaiming what a beautiful day it would be if MA had greeted her
She said that when R&B was taking acall outside
Ranjan "had a meeting" she was told... he smiled smugly at her "I will see u at dinner or at night or in the morning or in the afternoon" Ranjan giggled like a child

"I can now see you whenever" he declared proudly "Yes yes " he was very proud of his discovery

She blushed as her father in law realized she was a new permamnent member in the family

Ranjan shook R&B's hand... "Good beta.. godd good... rest now"

R&B nodded politely... "
"Isko ghar dikhao" "Show her... u know" Ranjan ordered

"I can see it by myself" II giggled nervously "I know the floors"
Ranjan: No no, betaji its his job"
"

NO DONT GIVE HIM INSTRUCTIONS HE WILL DO THE JOB AND CHARGE ME
HE IS A RAKSHASAN DAD!!

R&B nodded...

Akka left first with some lame excuse, Chachi took Great Aunt to her house for "bit" saying "Meet you at dinner"

Sam pretended to call Tan 5 times "I have to feed Lasya hes not answering, Sorry II I will be right back, u shud go rest, 
I will see u back at the Hall at 8 for dinner?" Sam fled giving her a hug
Manny left when Vik picked her up for a movie... she wandered back in after they left, 
stood by the Monet an oil work of the banks of a river "Seine?" she wondered
She heard foot fall, she turned in panic leaning on the wall by the Monet
"House tour will be 10 grand II" huskily
He closed the gap, bent down and claimed her lips... she uttered a muffled strong protest... he crushed her mouth beneath his ...thrusting into her moist heat, his tongue penetrating, her body exploded with pleasure, so intense she was
flung over the edge of sanity... she shuddered helpless unable to deny the urgent needs of her body

I liked the "bidaai" scene if you I can call it that...it was more of a "goodbye for now, I'll see you for dinner later." LOL
II's bonding with periappa is precious. 
Appa is still being passive aggressive Tongue 

R&B doesn't do well with her tears...how will this play out in the future?

"Between 19 steps she had spoken 10 SENTENCES he realized... she was a talker..."
Just now? He realized it just now? D'ohLOL

"HE DIDNT HOLD THE DOOR OPEN FOR HER"
She's still II and he's still Rakshasan. Kuch nahi badla hai LOL

Chaachi's train of thoughts was bang on. II may have signed a pre-nup for her own peace of mind, but that's not going to stop others from forming their own opinions about her behavior and actions. A word of advice to chaachi though...II is innocent, but she is not stupid. She has already given it back to you before without even knowing or understanding the complexity of the entire situation; don't think that she would hesitate to do so in the future as well. 

II still doesn't know why he married her...she doesn't really care to know either because she's scared that she will not like the answer that she may get. She admits that she wanted to marry him so she did. She clarifies yet again that she didn't marry him for his wealth. Her internal conflict says it all I think: she's married a "stranger" that she has barely known for 6 months. There's a lot that she doesn't know about him, there's a lot that he doesn't know about her. She is insecure about whether this marriage will last or not, but hopes that it will. This is perhaps what every newly-wed experiences: jitni khushi hoti hai ek nayi shuruat ko lekar, kahin na kahin ek ghabraahat bhi hoti hai...what if it doesn't turn out right?

Back to the Monet, where it all started...how apt. A full circle. They have embarked on a new leg of their journey together now, so a few words for the couple.

"No marriage is all sunshine, but two people can share one umbrella and survive the storm together."

"The couples that are meant to be are the ones who go through everything that's designed to tear them apart and come out even stronger."

"Marriage is not a noun, it's a verb. It isn't something you get, it's something you do." Single meaning, double meaning...take what you want from that. WinkLOL

10grand for the house tour... Hehe II is now II-B... Did someone bring thisto the merger&acquisition specialist that he has already acquired II's heart n now his surname is merged with hers LOL
II is now a permanent member at MM n Ranjan is the happiest of the lot,.. I feel so much for his loneliness...Cry I hope II makes these 2 individuals feel the family love again... Ranjan would give all his wealth justto hear Dad again from R&B n a smile from him...the man has such low expectations of his rights from his son!
