Love of old couple-Recoiled

It was June. Summer was at its peak.

Dharampal was sleeping with his grandchildren on either side. Sleeping on the floor with bed sheets spread evenly on the floor was his favourite and he did not like sleeping on bed. This was in the genes of his grandchildren also.

He saw Shraboni entering room of his son with sari border covering her head. She almost ran inside the room and locked the room from inside.

Dharampal heard some noise and then lost in the thoughts of Kanta.

Dharampal and Kanta used to go on the roof where Dharampal would smoke hookah and Kanta would prepare Lassi for him. Dharma would bring Chole Kulche for his wife and Kanta would eat it.

Everyday Kanta would do the same thing and Dharampal would be happy. Both then lie down and see the stars and talk to one another before going to sleep. Both were aged and would tell stories of brave and humorous acts done in their young days.

Kanta had full trust in Dharmapaji. Kanta would say Dharmapaji, you are a great man. I know you never had affair with any girl except me.

Kailash along with his family had gone out in summer holidays at his in laws house for about a week.

Kailash along with his family returned from his in-laws house in the morning in the last week of June.

He immediately left for his shop so that he could see if everything was in order in the departmental store. The departmental store was a big one and almost everything was available in the store.

He looked at his watch. It was 6.00 in the evening and this was the time when he would be on his way from departmental store to his home.

Kailash reached home at 6.45.

There was no one in the house. Generally there used to be noise in the evening. Children would cry, they would snatch one another’s things or Kanta would shout at them whenever one would slap another sibling.

He felt uneasy and started calling each member.

Shraboni where are you? Shyam where are you?

No answer.

Geeta where have you gone? Maji, Pitaji where are you?

Still no answer.

He went upstairs and reached the roof.  He was shocked to see everyone weeping. He asked everyone but no one replied.

He saw Kanta and kept on staring her. He regained consciousness soon and said Maji what happened to you?

She was lying there with no body movement.

Pitaji was crying. He said I never told a lie to Kanta. Today only I thought of pulling her leg.

He began.

It was afternoon and sun was setting. I started laughing and asked for a glass of water from Kanta.

She asked what happened Dharama.

Dharma said “nothing much dear”. You remember Sumitra. The beautiful woman in her early twenties with dove eyes and silky black long hair and perfect figure. She was no match with any woman at that time.

Expressions on Kanta’s face changed and she became somewhat furious.

Her tone changed and said now I understand why you would go late in the evening everyday and would be happy with shine in the eyes when you would return. So you were with her all those evenings and made me a fool.

He came near her and held her hands. He could not believe. Kanta’s body was very hot and was almost boiling.

Kanta loved her husband very much and they never had any disagreement throughout their lives. He was worried. He started cursing himself. He should not have said this to his wife, even if this was true. He should have thought about this earlier.

Kanta’s  face twisted after listening his story of young days. After few minutes she almost became still.

Dharma took water from the jug and sprinkled it over her face. She moved a bit and then suddenly her face dropped down with her back supporting on the leg of Dharma. His both hands were trying to shake her body.

But it was very late.

He recoiled and said you cannot leave me like this. We have been together all these years both in joys and sorrows of life. I just wanted to enjoy and hence told you the story of Sumitra. You should have at least listened to other part of the story.

They were on the same spot where they had slept together last time.

Dharma threw the glass of water on the floor and shouted you old lady I will not cremate you.

I love you darling

I came early from the office. It was 7.00 PM in the office.

I thought I should spend some time with my wife. Today I will have two extra hours that can be utilized effectively.

Generally I reach home at around 9 in the night.

I called my wife at 5 in the evening and told her that I would be reaching home early today as my boss was not available in the office. Then we would be going out for a long walk.

My wife seemed happy as could be judged from her tone.

My wife was cooking for me when I reached home at 7.

She cooked my favourite items- Fried Potatoes and Masoor Dal.

I was very happy eating these dishes.

We chatted for 15-20 minutes and then she switched on TV to watch her favourite serial.  The serial was for 30 minutes. I watched TV for few minutes but it was not of my interest. I thought of reading newspaper. After about 20-25 minutes, my wife changed channel and was watching another favourite serial.

I thought of asking my wife if she was interested in going out but looking at her face I thought of not disturbing her. She was smiling while watching her favourite really show.

I picked up novel “Icebound” by Dean Koontz and was lost in reading it for a long time.

I looked at watch. I felt bad. It was 10 in the night and we generally sleep by this time.

I cursed myself and thought why I did not go out immediately after reaching home or at least after finishing dinner.

Once we were on the bed, I thought of asking her if she felt bad for not going out. But thoughts came into my mind if I should ask her or not.

Finally I decided to ask her so that it does not remain buried in my heart.

“Did you feel bad for not going out”?

Wife replied calmly “You were tired when you came from office so I thought of not disturbing you”.

I felt relieved. I asked why she switched on TV when she knew that we had to go out.

She again said calmly “You have interest in reading that you generally cannot do on other days as you come late in the night so I did not feel like disturbing you”.

I was feeling bad inside.  I was expecting some harsh words from her.

Infact I wasted this precious time in all other things except the one of going out.

We love one another very much and cater to very minute needs of one another. We also say I Love You Darling.

But sometimes it becomes necessary to express it which can be in any form.

Going out was one of them. This is what I thought. I cannot say about anyone else.

One should spend some time with family whenever you get time. Do not indulge in things that can be done without one another.I had wasted my precious time and was feeling bad for myself and my wife.

I decided that next time whenever I got this opportunity we will go out for a walk and then will continue with our daily routine. Otherwise same will happen in future.

 

 

 

Love scene-caught red handed by wife

It was Friday afternoon. I was in the office. Working on reconciliations. The clock showed 1.30 PM.

Got a call from a bank for credit card. There was a girl whose sweet voice attracted me.

She started conversation. “Hi Sir. I am Nisha and we are offering credit card which is life time free and you do not have to pay any charges”.

I asked “what is life time. Every product has a life of 3-5 years and cannot be life time free”.

She said “Sir please take this card as it has a very high limit of credit and you do not have to pay any charges”.

“Madam I do not use card as I have to pay bill later on and may face problem if I do not have sufficient bank balance. So I always use hard cash available in my pocket”.

“You work in a very good company and earn handsome package. Then why you are thinking about a card”.

“I currently cannot think about a card. I think only about a girl as I am finding any girl and need a girl who can be my life partner. If you know someone please let me know. Once I get a girl, I will take your credit card-not one but two”.

She laughed and said “do not worry you will get a beautiful girl very soon”.

I asked “Are you single or married”.

Sir I am single.

That’s great. So you are single and ready to mingle. Will you work in my organization?

No sir. I just now completed graduation and am doing M.sc in Dieting.

That’s good. You take care of your health and of all people around you.

She laughed.

I asked “I am forgetting your name. What is your name?”

Sir I am Pooja.

I was surprised.

I said “But it seems there was another girl in the beginning. How the girl could be changed in the same call with same voice”.

She said “Sir you are innocent. You could not know that the call was handed over to another girl without getting any hint of it”.

Ok. So where do you stay.

I stay in Delhi.

Very funny. Delhi is very big. Where exactly do you stay?

Ghitorni metro station.

You live in Ghitorni metro station.

Again she laughed. Sir there is a way out of the Metro station and I live somewhere near the metro station

I enquired. Now let me know the address also.

Sir. I will tell you but first tell me when I can call you again to confirm for credit card.

I am busy all day in the office and will be free in the evening.

She said Ok and we disconnected the call.

I was busy all day and got time to see my mobile again in the evening.

I checked whats app.

There was a message. Hi sir Pooja.

My heart raced and I replied. I was busy and could not connect in the office.

Next day I got reply. No problem. Can we meet today?

I was ready for this. I said. Sure.

We met at Ghitorni metro station. She was slim and beautiful and was wearing white shirt with blue denim.

We met and said hi to one another. We ate burgers and chatted for about 1 hour. She got a call from home and had to leave immediately.

We started talking to one another on phone next day onwards and next weekend we again met at Kashmere Gate metro station.

This time my heart raced fast and thought of doing some flirting. She was also ready.

We got down and walked towards right where no one goes. We started kissing one another and continued for 5 minutes.

Someone called me and patted on my shoulder. I shuddered. I saw the person and my face reddened.

She was my wife.

I did not understand what to do and I saw stars moving around in the day.

My wife shouted. So this is what you had to do and that’s why you left early in the morning.

I mustered courage and asked what you are doing here.

She told me she had to go to Connaught Place for shopping and had informed me yesterday but I was busy in this mushy affair and was not interested in going with me. So she wanted to have fun and took the next metro after I boarded the metro and followed me.

My wife shouted “I just wanted to have fun and had not expected that you will be involved in this extramarital affair.

Pooja who was watching all this left immediately without looking back.

I felt ashamed and started pacifying my wife. “I am sorry darling for all this and will not do it again”.

It took an hour to convince her and finally she was pacified.

 

Message of the story- do not involve in extramarital affair. Always get involved with one girl at a time-either your wife or your girlfriend.

 

Stay@in-laws

It was a cold Sunday. I had to go out to buy grocery at a nearby shop.

I got ready after having nice shower and light breakfast. I get ready by 9.00 but it was a weekend. It was going to be 12.00 in the noon. I wore crisp pink shirt with blue denim jeans and sleeveless green sweater.

I was about to go out when my wife asked where I was going and when I will be back.

I knew I would not be able to go out now and will not buy grocery today. I will have to wait till next weekend.

I told her I would be coming in next half an hour but she said she would also be going after lunch.

That would be another 2 hours. Lunch was getting ready. It was already 1.30. We had our lunch and I thought of having fruit juice from my favourite juice corner.

I asked her if we could go out. She wanted to sleep now.

I knew this would happen.

Evening 6.00 P.M.

My wife got a call from my in-laws. Got invitation to visit them.

I asked if we could go out now. She became irritated and said do you have any other task other than asking for going out.

I knew this would happen.

We went to her home and had dinner. We chatted for about an hour.

It was time to say bye and head for our home.

My wife requested if we could stay for tonight.

What could I do?

It was a good weekend as we spent time together but could not buy basic groceries.

I was determined that in future I will not tell my wife about my plans and will plan sometime for me.

At least I will feel satisfied.
