Beautiful Nisha!! True coming of age experience her marriage is turning out to be for II.
Loved Vandu' s strength.
Loved your portrayal of Vandu as a woman with desires and wishes. Very few things are as demanding as care giving is. Especially when it is a result directly attributable to lack of empathy from part of her husbands family. So much honesty from her - awe inspiring.
I hope II learns to confront the right things in her life. I loved Vandu pointing to II that she was an equal partner in the relationship - she wanted the marriage as much as RnB did!
Both the sisters have financial woes - Vandu a prisoner of expectations , limited supply and extended needs and II's woes self inflicted!
Looking forward to see how the two are going to learn from each other or support each other!
You Nisha deserve
for making all these characters gracious and grumpy, subtle and blatant all in one go. All of them have shades! like Monet
What a fantastic description. I read it three times already
THANKS SO MUCH Asma
You are right lack of empathy... Bala cares but only so much, he is selfish, he wants his parents not to be abandoned, he would rather have his 37 year old risky pregnancy wife care for them
She doesnt feel jealousy for what Sam has but wishes she has SOME Things atleast, if there was no Thatha Pati (in laws) she can have that bedroom, she can cook meals for "Her 4"
R&B? is the other extreme... he doesnt care for his own Dad
