Kicha is the only son to vaity? I think he has a brother. Two sons were in hostel during their studies in the same institution. a rare item taken for train journey but it is ok without onion. Chances of it getting stale much less without onion! This part I can relate to my own events. When I suggested to octogenarian parents to join me in then Bombay, they expressed reluctance — Hindi Marathi Language, losing contacts and friends, relatives etc.. — They refused to travel by air. I received them at Dadar. A red jacket licensed tall hefty coolie ( porter) physically lifted my dad on his shoulder walked on the ramp of platform walked across the tracks and moved to platform on the other side from where we could exit the Dadar station. As he entered into the hall from lift at twelfth floor, he wide eyed exclaimed - is this is your office or what? Yes the hall was wide 30’x20’. It was accommodation provided by Bharat Matha. Dad was reticent as he could not speak my friends’ Marathi or Hindi though he could in English. Mom could speak many languages. She quickly befriended many of the inmates in that 64 flats and without my or spouse assistance, she got busier and busier and dad became jealous. I like the way you had presented mrs Kichha —Revathi broad minded and love for her MIL & DIL. BUT then THERE pigeon hole is overcrowded now. Privacy challenged, let me look forward to their future and turn of events. Until then God Bless.
