    Chapter 12

    It’s become thirteen days since my marriage got fixed. It was a month of festive for us. All of us were so happy and soaring so high, the sky was also no limits. A day was not enough for us to talk about. So many plans so many ideas we had to plan. We wanted a house, car and many more. He even had listed the people we had to invite for the marriage which was still six months due. The thirteen days went like thirteen minutes for us. He would have spoken for at least thirteen hundred times about my marriage.

    When he made up his mind about the bride groom he told me

    “Sona dear, I liked this person, I think he would match you well what you think shall we proceed with this”

    “Ok daddy, as you wish I agree”

    Immediately came those words without any hesitation as I had already decided whom ever my dad says to marry I will agree. I had realized by then that was the ultimate happiness for them and that did work. His face immediately lit up with the glow I wanted to see flashed.

    I certainly had all faith in my dad’s choice. My dad is a very simple person, very naïve, straight forward, loyal etc. He believed every body to be like him too. Many were there to criticize him that he is innocent and some even said that he is a fool, if he continues to be like that people would take him for granted and use him for their sake.

    But my dad did not mind their comments rather he believed in truth and continued to be the same. He works for his conscience and followed it. Many days inspite of sleeping late at night, he would get earl in the morning and do his work. My mom would ask him to take rest saying that if he skips these two three hour s of work might delay his work by one or two days which should nor be a problem.

    He immediately refuses telling “no, no they have commitments too. They wait for these bills to be cleared so that they can clear their commitments. One or two days delay might cause them some percent of loss. Why should they face a loss because of me? I will take rest on Sunday” but to my mom’s frustration those Sundays would never come.

    He tackled those situations very light and made us also feel light. He was steady with his principles. On the day he chose my brother in law as the groom for my sister. All his well wishers advised him to enquire about him before deciding for final as he was very new to us. He was again firm in his decision for one reason that as a part of the conversation my brother in law had promised him that he doesn’t have any bad habits and would take care of his daughter very well. He believed the promise and said nothing more is required than a promise. Can you imagine how much he believed in truth? Truth is his path and he followed it very strictly.

    Later the people who criticize him realize this and would soon become close to him. Like that he had won so many hearts. He has many friends who are very true to him.

    And now, when my dad spoke about my marriage, I was confident that it’s my dad’s choice it would certainly be a true choice. I had no second thoughts at all. He has decided and that’s it. He’s gonna be my husband I had also decided. I was so happy to see the satisfied grin and the pride on his face.

    My mom and dad looked at each other and smiled and broke out into laughter. Their eyes were glazing with tears but the bliss in their face, goodness that was what I wanted. Finally I had done it.

    “Thank god!” I thanked god so many times. I had taken a good decision at the right time thank god once again.

    Everyday morning he‘ll come to my room when I get ready and keep looking at me and keep on teasing

    “Enough dear, its gonna pain for the mirror keep some for tomorrow” is his standard comment and I

    “Enough daddy this is girls room you go away” standard reply and pushed him out of the room.

    Both of us laugh at each other and but continue to do the same. We got ready bid bye to my mom and left for the day. Every thing went on as usual. All three of us wait for the evening to come. All day long amongst all other work we would have thought of many new plans off late about my marriage the most. Evening as soon as we gather we would call upon my sis and update all the happenings and then chat, chat and chat no matter however late it becomes for him to return home..

    But it was on the thirteenth day …..
