    So true, periamma.
    Using others shamelessly as stepping stones is bad. Even allowing others to use us indiscriminately is equally bad. One has to balance emotions judiciously.

    HAPPY DASSERA.

    :hello: great story emphasising the need think not twice but many times one's ambition via a vis love , one should evaluate first what he or she wants to do with life. One can not have the cake and eat it too.
    The glory is not in falling but attempt to raise and remain erect every time you fall said philosopher Confucious.
    You had enormous patience to imagine characters and weave a story sustaining interest. It all began with love and bit sacrifice and hate and then realisation. In the back drop one think of separation between son of Infosys Narayan Morthy and his ultra modern wife.
    World is full of CHITRAS & selfish Nitins self aggrandizement par excellence.
    Thoroughly enjoyed and read it one go.
    Regards.
    GOD BLESS.

    Thyagarajan Sir,
    I like the way you sum up. Thanks for the same.

    The quote by the great philosopher is so correct and meaningful. One may fall for any reason but a will to get up, dust and move on is the essential spirit.

    Each one of us have different measures of Chitra and Nitin in us. I guess, what matters is how we tame our innate attitudes and co-exist to make our relationships a success. Of all relationships, since marriage has more ramifications it requires extra careful and judicious nurturing.

    @GeetaKashyap I forgot to mention one more point.while Nitin used chitra as stepping stone ,Sonalika uses Nitin as stepping stone and when she finds another stepping stone Nitin will be thrown away.

    Dear periamma,
    You are absolutely correct!

    To Nitin, Chitra, Rizwan and Sonalika are the stepping stones. To Chitra, Rizwan is the stepping stone. The difference is in how we treat the stepping stones that help in our progress and that speaks volumes about our own nature and character.
