    PART - II continuation of part I ! -Part 1

    That was her dreamland. As all other normal girls feelings , Nandhini also felt that her birth place to be a dreamland.She started worrying that all her family members trying to send her out of her dreamland. Yes the situation is nothing but Nandhini marriage. She prepared herself to face her new avatar to be played successfully. She felt as though all the eyes are focused towards her pink soft foot, those ankles and metti when get into her legs it looks more shining than when it was placed in jewellery shop. She hear to people instructing her,
    “valadhu kaala eduthu vachu ulla vaama”(place your right leg and enter the home).
    Her thick bright yellowish mangalya sutra added more beauty in her face. It’s time for her to face all her father-in-law, mother-in-law, and sister-in-law.
    “Oh my God .I wonder how many in-laws should I face, please give me enough strength to follow my in-laws and their laws”. She stepped in murmuring herself silently.
    As a newly married she was unable to conceal her shyness and it all automatically turns her chin rose. Bashfully she had a look around the house where she is going to spend rest of her life.
    Both the couple were asked to be seated in the upholstered sofa .Naraen understood the uneasiness of Nandhini and pinched her on her rosy cheeks Nandhini let out a sheepish smile. She was relished being with Naraen but not with her mother-in-law. The reason is nothing but one of her close friend, who got married recently started describing Nandhini that her mother-in-law treated her very badly and she discussed needless accusations. After hearing to what she said, Nandhini started concluding herself that all the in-laws will act same.Maragatham break all the unnecessary envisions and thoughts of Nandhini.
    Maragatham ,she was in her mid 50’s with an appealing, stout commanding body. Wherever she goes people automatically raise their hands and respect her with a warm welcome. She has a tejas in her face. Usually newly married brides always hide themselves behind their hubby but Nandhini was right opposite. As soon as she have a talk with Maragatham ,she started mingling and always hangs on with her. Maragatham kind soft nature drag Nandhini towards her.What would would be the sudden change in her thoughts and actions?
    On the very first day as soon as she enter the home , Maragatham called her and spoke with her personally,
    “See Nandhini this is the not a Xerox copy of your house. Don’t you understand the implication?”
    “I mean it” Nandhini uttered in a trembling voice.
    “What did you understood?” Maragatham asked her.
    “I should not think it as my own house and do all sorts as though I do in my house”Nandhini’s eyes look like a mini pond and tears waited for the right situation.
    Maragatham pat on her back “hayyo asadae(innocent)”
    “I mean this is not the Xerox copy of your house think it as your own house. I won’t tell you to consider me as your mom, here after I am your mom, understand,”she grinned.
    Nandhini cried not because of terror assumption because of unconditional love, from the moment Maragatham become her favourite and placed her very close to her heart.
    Nandhini eagerly waited for Maragatham’s pleasant voice to continue further.
    “Nandhini you can share all the things you shared so far with your friend’s you can openly chit-chat with me, these many days I am the only woman in this house feeling lonely with no woman to share. I have the same frequency as yours ,please ma won’t ever think about that blithering generation gap and maintain distance. I am not that much old, you know only last year I celebrated my 21st birthday”Maragatham with her own humorous nature cracked a joke.
    “As you are now I too enter my husband’s house with lots of expectations, fear and dream. I know what is your situation now I have come across you age. I have no daughter and will you be my daughter, won’t you Nandhini?”Maragatham asked her in an exiting voice.
    “Y-e-s for sure amma” she started considering Maragatham as her mother. Nandhini was flying; She felt the body with mild goose bumps.
    Nandhini's marriage life was fully filled with colours and each and every moment she relished herself being a member of that family. One year passed ,Nandhini was 9 months pregnant and about to give birth to a child.

    Hi nalini
    part 2 is interesting..:hiya
    Your story has a positive message..:thumbsupI love the way you have introduced maragatham.

    Maragatham's character shows maturity and her gesture to make Nandhini feel comfortable is praise worthy.Most MIL and DIL tiffs can be totally avoided if the MILs take the first step and extend a warm welcome to the new bride and be patient with her while she's trying to understand the customs in her new home.

    Waiting for more..

    Regards
    Honeybee

    Hi Nalini,
    By the way at any part of time did I tell you all about my MIL. :eek:mg: only the name is changed to Maragatham from Rajalakshmi otherwise everything is just the same. Hey I am not joking or I am not over telling, but yes Maragatham is the xerox copy of my MIL. I relived that episode with Nandini except for one thing, she started hanging around with her MIL after her marriage, I had the opportunity to do so even before marriage. I think that is why God wanted her to be close to him and he took her.

    Hi Rajmi Akka,

    I am very happy as well to the extent i am very sad. You must be the most luckiest person to have a M-I-L like Maragatham, as i said early this story would surely make you feel like "DEJAVU" or make you jealous not having such a MIL at the side.For person who have such MIL please make her comfort and feel proud that you are th best DIL and for person who was fried with jealous please take your own steps to woo you MIL ,I wont say its not fair...If a woo makes you and your family to lead a peaceful life then why don't we try that technique.We any how have to rely on elders guidance.All the best.

    Hi Sri,
    I wonder what makes Maragatham so powerful character? All of them like Maragatham isnt it?Its all because of her kind heart and soft character .If we are fond of others soft creature ,I bet all of them have a Maragatham within themselves.For some one she arosed and reflected in their happy life.But for someone,they haven't recognised Maragatham inside them and they point out others to be a sheep-goat.Lets awake Maragatham in all of them heart.Good luck !!!
    Me too eagerly "Waiting for the birth of Nandhini's child!"Lets wait and watch what are all the other sweet memories and tragedies these characters going to face.:shock:
