    :hello:Congratulations though belated. I trust baby and your family members all maintain good health and in cheers.

    2. You must be enjoying motherhood and watching keenly daily growth and development of your baby .

    3. In July 19 you had posted a query about disposal and or drinking Of puja water into Tulasi plants. I trust you continue to get more do benefits of doing Pooja.

    4. I enjoyed reading Episode 65 . It reveals your depth of understanding human emotions and enormous patience required to type within quotes - line by line dialogue - by characters and add a line about instant expression or explain characteristic moves of dramatic persona.

    5. The episode demonstrates your percipient nature in understanding entire gamut of human emotions that enables you to write suspense filled story. Your followers agog to know further developments and twists in the story.

    Guard your health and of the baby.

    Regards.

    Episode 66:


    Veni was busy worrying thinking about the two ladies who are about to arrive.

    “Oh God…..One is fifty plus and one is forty plus….6 of us in this small house…..” Veni frowned biting her nails.

    It was a weekend and Rishi was busy watering the plants. Veni heard someone opening the main gate and there she was. Veni kept gazing the lady and Rishi came running out of the house.

    She was wearing a dark pink saree with thin zari border….Her hair was long and beautifully braided and locked with a fancy hair tie… Her gold earrings, colorful bangles and a handbag said something about her…

    “No way she is fifty plus!!! She looks like forty!” – Veni thought while her eyes were simply gazing her through the window.

    “Aunty…..Please come! I thought you would call my mobile! Managed to find this house?”- Rishi asked getting the duffel bag from her.

    “No problem at all! You already sent me the address…I informed you the time as well! Then would I call you?” - The lady asked straight away with a wide smile.

    “Ha Ha…. Usually whoever visits us, call us for route guidance since its little hard to find the house….” – Rishi said as they stepped in.

    “Yeah, it is not very easy as you said. But I got down from the auto and asked few people here and there…! And it became super easy to locate your house. ” – She said as she sat on the sofa.

    “Oh ok aunty! Just a minute” – Rishi went inside and brought a glass of water for her.

    “Have this aunty! One minute” – He went to his bedroom and saw Veni standing quietly listening to their conversation.

    “Hey my friend’s mom has come! She is very independent basically. She won’t trouble you much. So need not worry. Will you come and greet her? At least for courtesy?” – Rishi looked at her.

    “ok. By the way she does not look like fifty plus and all. She looks like forty…!” – Veni

    “Come soon na…..” – Rishi pulled her.

    “And her name is Vijaya!” – Rishi said as they stepped out of the bedroom.

    “Hi Veni! How are you?” – Vijaya aunty gave a bright wide smile.

    “Good. Thank you” – Veni smiled back

    “By the way you are ok with me staying here na!! Just a week!” – Veni didn’t expect she would ask such a question straight away.

    “Yeah! no problem!” – Veni smiled

    “Thank you” – Vijaya aunty smiled back.

    Vijaya aunty started to settle in the new environment. Don’t know why Veni felt very different to see her. She was very energetic for her age unlike her mother and mother-in-law. Veni did not talk anything about her to Rishi and Rishi was careful not to annoy Veni in anyways.

    Veni was preparing tea for herself in the kitchen and Vijaya aunty stepped in. Veni flashed a reluctant smile and moved her eyes away from her.

    “You look beautiful by the way! Got lovely eyes as well! Lucky Rishi” – Vijaya aunty said generously.

    Veni did not expect that compliment and she smiled thankfully. Veni felt good about Vijaya aunty suddenly after receiving a compliment from her.

    “Aunty! You look much younger to your age! You do Yoga?”- Veni was curious.

    “Thank you! Many has complimented on the same” – Vijaya aunty’s face was glowing.

    “And no, I don’t do Yoga” – Vijaya aunty

    “Then how is that? How do you look so young?” – Veni

    “Honestly speaking, I inherited that from my mom and of course yes I do few things to retain that” – Vijaya aunty.

    “That’s what! What is that?” – Veni was becoming restless

    “Nothing in particular. I love long walks! I do that every day! And cutting off unhealthy food completely from my diet… And sometimes dancing” – Vijaya

    “Dancing?”- Veni could not suppress the shock.

    “Yeah! why?” – Vijaya aunty could not understand

    “No no… nothing aunty”- Veni said as she poured the tea on her cup.

    “Shall I prepare tea for you as well?”- Veni.

    “No no! I like to do it myself” – Vijaya aunty.

    “Oh ok” – Veni walked out of the kitchen thinking about Vijaya aunty.

    She sat in her room calmly thinking about her mom’s cousin who is arriving the next day.

    As she finished sipping her tea, she stepped out of her room.

    She could not believe her eyes. Vijaya aunty was walking across the living room in a loose aqua tee shirt and a black room pant, and her long black hair was tied into a bun.

    “Oh God! My mother-in-law won’t even like me wearing sleeveless and this lady walking across the room in this attire?”- Veni’s blood pressure spiked. She went into the kitchen and gulped a glass of water and stood as such.

    She saw Rishi coming towards her.

    “Hey! What is this? What’s her age and what is she wearing?”- Veni asked suppressing her irritation.

    “What?!” – Rishi

    “Did you look at her?” – Veni

    “Yeah, but how can I talk about her clothing Veni?” – Rishi sounded reasonable and Veni could not yell at him this time.

    “Tomorrow my aunt will be coming! I do not know how she is going to react to all this! You know about my mom’s family na…. Everyone is ….” – Veni started

    “I know I know…. Just a week! We got to manage somehow! Please! Single parent she is”- Rishi.

    “That’s why am unable to digest….!” – Veni said softly

    “What?” – Rishi

    “Nothing! I will call my aunt and guide her the route in advance!” – Veni said and walked away.

    As she came out, Vijaya aunty was sitting beside the window with her wireless headphone.

    “She seems to be enjoying….” – Veni murmured with irritation as she walked into her room.



    Tulasi could not believe what is happening around her. She was panting, her eyes were red with tears.

    She feebly took her phone and dialled her grandma’s number.

    “Dear…. How are you….? Why didn’t you talk to me when I called you…?” – Grandma

    “Maa….” – Tulasi broke down into tears. Her voice was shaking, and she did not know where to start.

    “What happened dear?! Is everything ok?” – Grandma was becoming restless.

    “Maa….”- Tulasi tried hard to talk amidst crying.

    “Dear….tell me what happened” – Grandma was becoming restless.

    “Will tell you ma” – Tulasi said trying to wipe her tears.



    P.S: Posting after a very long gap. Not sure when the next episode will be. Thanks for understanding.

    My dear Ladies,
    Just wrote the next episode as well. Will post it soon after reviewing it once again.
    Have already posted one today.
    And am writing after a very long gap, bear with the mistakes if any. Thanks in advance.
    Also I really do not know how my writing is after the long gap.
    And I did see many private messages and notifications. But everything got vanished as I didn't login for a very longtime.
    So couldn't read any. Incase if there was no response from my side, please understand as this was the reason.
    Thank you all once again : ) Have a lovely day ahead : )

    Dear IniyaaSri,
    As usual with the onset of summer I start keeping a bowl of water and grains for the birds and like every year the sparrows visit in groups but now Tulsi is in my mind whenever I see a sparrow picking up grains and I feel like telling her she can have her food.:blush: Thanks for posting the next episode.TC....
