Well ... Alkaline is a great neutralizer for stomach acid and saliva is a good Alkaline
Good day and Evening all.
But the last line was so telling as in Mandira started to focus her energies on her DIL. Ten years she has been living her life vicariously through her son. Good or bad, that's the way it has been. Everyone needs something or someone to move on I guess. Ashvin has found his someone and one fine day the mom gets announced he is ready to be truly free and therefore his sister Lee needs her arms of protection.No doubt that communication was clear and needed from a son who has taken a wife to a mom. But It can't be easy for any mom under normal circumstances let alone Mandira to undo the last 10 yrs in a day. It's heart burn for Mandira in fact. She will come around eventually I feel but if she is not able to Trisha hasn't been too helpful either to abridge.
If we look at it this way, it wouldn't have hurt Trisha to ask Mandira how she was doing isn't it? When she comes out when asked how she was doing , her answer was polite, I'm fine ... but where's Ashwin. That doesn't help TBH. No I'm not expecting Trisha to coo, gush , fall at her feet or be fake but I'm fine and hope you are doing well yourself Mrs Narang can't hurt that much. Don't make it too hard than what it is already. As much as a MIl is expected to give space to the young couple, the DIL shouldn't forget that the lady taking on a mother in law role is new to the relationship or task as well. I admire Mandira for one thing, for whatever she is, she isn't indifferent to people she knows. I can recollect every single time she has made enquiries of Trisha's family asking her how her dad's doing or how are things bk home given the background. Its Finesse may be , partly empty courtesy may be but I haven't found it too completely fake either. To compare we have Sam's mom in law Mrs.Batra.
Hey Nisha, Mandira is not too old either ...looking smart herself, she needs to move on as well... can we get a companion for her..? She must be in her 50's or something ?...She can Also FOCUS her energies better that way... coz right now more than a heart burn it seems to be an allergic reaction
. Heart burn and allergic reaction are not the same
I am hoping that both don't make it hard for the man to play ball all the time .Edited by Errantnomad - 4 years ago
