    So, Ramesh goes for night shift the next day and Savitha finds it tough to stay alone. It is mid-night and Savitha not getting sleep opens her eyes and is terrified to hear the sound of someone trying to open the front door. With fear, she opens the curtains in the bedroom window without switching on the lights and notices the silhoutee of a figure standing at the door. In panic, not knowing what to do she takes the mobile by the bed side and rings up her mother at Madurai.

    Mother: Savitha, what happened? why you are ringing at this time of night? Is anything wrong?

    Savitha: Mom, I am scared.

    Mother: Why? with Ramesh by your side why you should be scared?

    Savitha: O! mom, I could not tell you. Ramesh has been posted in night shift by his Manager and just now I saw a person trying to enter the house. I saw his silhoutee.

    Mother: Ayyo, Rama! Savitha, you first ring up Ramesh in his office about this and then ring up police number. Before that you ensure that all doors are bolted from inside and you stack the tables and chairs against your bed room door. Oh, Thiruparamkunram Muruga, Simmakal Anjaneya, mela masi veethi vinayaka Savitha vai kaapthungo. (Please save Kavitha).

    After sometime, Savitha's mother rings up again to find out.

    Mother: Savitha, are you allright?

    Savitha (laughs loudly): Mom, don't worry. Everything is allright.

    Mother (puzzled): Why are you laughing Savitha? That silhoutee figure may hear you.

    Savitha (still laughing): Mom, that silhoutee figure is none other than your son-in-law.

    Mother: You mean Ramesh?

    Savitha: Mom, how many son-in-laws you have? It is Ramesh.

    Mother: Sorry, Oh, is it Ramesh? how did you find out?

    Savitha: Mom, as you asked me I rang up Ramesh. But, I heard the phone ringing from the silhoutee and the figure took the mobile and said in a funny voice, ' Mr. Ramesh is busy in conference call with the U.S. customers please ring back after an hour'. Ha ha ha....

    Mother: Oh, God! I will take milk for abhshekam to Thiruparankunram, tell for vadamalai to Simmakal Anjaneyar and make kozhukattai for mela maasi veethi Vinayakar.

    Here, Ramesh and Savitha are on their bed musing over the funny incident.

    Savitha: Ramesh, how did you manage to come from office? If your manager comes to know he will remove you from the job.

    Ramesh: Don't worry. I have made pukka arrangements. I found this watchman fellow is crazy after watching mid-night masala on the TV. In fact, I caught him wide open-mouthed watching. So, I had a deal with him. He will not tell manager about my absence for an hour daily and I will sit with him and watch mid-night masala.

    Savitha: What? You watching mid-night masala?

    Ramesh: Why? What is wrong with that? Savi, it is otherwise so boring this night shift.

    Savitha: What if the manager rings up when you are here?

    Ramesh: I have made arrangements. Since our phones are connected to network computer, I have programmed so that if it is manager's number it will play a recorded voice ' Thanks for calling me. Right now I am attending business call in another phone. Please ring up after an hour'.

    Savitha: O.K. What if the U.S. party rings up?

    Ramesh: Again another recorded voice will play saying, 'Welcome to R & G company. Our software expert is attending to business calls from Europe and Australia. Please ring up after an hour. We thank you for your patience'.

    Savitha: excellent, Ramesh. Shall we go to sleep?

    Thus, Savitha and Ramesh are having a happy shifted life.

    The end.

    Dear Sunkan,

    Thanks for the appreciation. The story actually takes place in Bangalore. I think you have not read the first two episodes.
