    Anita was engrossed, watching the television. That was a rare sight as she normally did not have any time for herself much. Two kids and the early leaving husband plus all the tasks at house made her running on her toes always. They had recently moved to that location, so they were yet to find a domestic help.

    Finding admission in a good school for their kids took most of the time. Thankfully, once it was done and the school started, she had some breathing space. She was watching the poor plight of the refugees in a country, about how everything was rationed to them and how they survived without even the basic needs and medicine and so on. What they lacked primarily was independence and a bit of love. She thought about her own plight and the terrible time she had, with her mother-in-law Kaveri. Her father-in-law had expired before she married Hari. Hari and his younger brother Kesav, had been the two eyes of Kaveri.

    Hari married Anita, out of love and against Kaveri's interest. You know what would have resulted. Anita had nobody else which compounded her problem further. After two years, Hari was transferred and that gave her some freedom. Couple of years later, Kesav got married [this one was arranged]. Few months later, Anita was surprised to see the sudden arrival of Kaveri one afternoon.

    She welcomed her wholeheartedly.
