    Hmmmm.
    'Did you say something? He asked peeking his head out from the rumble of crumpled news paper in his hands.

    'No! Nothing ' she replied glancing aimlessly towards the ceiling.

    This is the beginning of the opening of the closed chapters of their long married life. This gives them extra ammunition to pull each other down in their own way, of course.

    'What nothing? If you do not want my sitting here and reading the news paper, say so. Why talk in metaphors ?'

    'You don't seem to be reading the paper ?'
    'Why do you say that?'
    'The TV is on with that stupid tick tok cricket match showingl you can't do,both together'
    'So you want to watch those silly sil, dil, mil sops!'
    'I didn't say that ! ,
    'You don't to say anything, your body language says everything, I know you!'
    'Really! When was last time you looked at me? '
    'Forget it'
    'Forget what? How can I forget what you told me when we first met?'
    'What did I say?'
    'That you will ever keep me happy.'
    'I don't remember what I or you said some sixty years ago. I can't even remember what I ate for dinner yesterday'
    'So you want to say my cooking is not worth remembering!'
    'Do you remember what date was four days ago?'
    'Must have been, let me think, what date is today?'
    'I know, I know. It was my birth day and you did not even wish me. I have been waiting and waiting. And you remember what I said 60 years ago!'
    'You know I am not good at numbers, you could have reminded you or given me some hints!'
    'Very simple excuse! '
    'So, you don't want me to sit here, okay I will move into the bed room. We have only two rooms, where else you want me to go?'
    'You were not born a princess. It's enough for two of us'
    'I was a princess for my parents, you made me maid'
    'I did the best I could'
    'So did I'
    'Foeget about it. Let me go out and breath some fresh year.'
    'And gossip with that fatty panwala !'
    'What is it to you? ' opens the door and goes out.
    'It is raining outside, take this umbrella and don't break your bones, the road is slippery'

    Hmmmmmmmmm.

    Dear Hari,

    This shows even when the couples are at loggerheads women naturally have empathy and very much concerned about the well being of their better half.

    Absolutely. The last line leads to that conclusion. I don't remember the title but there was a movie starring Amitabh Bacccan and Sharmila Tagore as aged Couple. She reminds him to take his medicines on time and adds that she doing so for her own selfish ends. If something happens to him, who will look after her.
    This is the practical see of the relationship between couples. This does not mean it has no love angle to it. The basic fact that they care of each other for whatever reasons is nothing but love.
