Yeah, I am fine Rishab, you sure that you are alright? what nonsense, I am fine dude I will come here to play carrom in this traffic and that too on a weekday What society will think? We are always bothered about society, people You know what, society is like a striker its job is to nose around in others business… it’s just that it has no control over queen By the way how’s mom now? Mom…She’s never been this happy in her life before >>And dad??>>Dad is still not able to understand, what just happened? Dad won’t be able to understand anyway He provided for family always, never expected to see this day in his life A part of me broke when i first heard that word from Mom Dad had nothing to say after that I was going to club on Friday… Mom called me and said she needs to talk to me… I said Mom, let’s talk tomorrow morning. I am going to club now Dad came home drunk on friday for the first time I have never seen him like this ever before I have no idea how did mom manage to spend that night When I came back to home hungover next morning… Mom was still sitting there, waiting for me To spend nights, Dad’s found out out his new habit of drinking now I…I was not ready to hear that word But that word is very important for our parents And then Mom said …. DIVORCE It is so easy for Mom to break 25 years of relationship…. just like that with one single word? And then Mom said she doesn’t want to stay with Dad But dad doesn’t know how to stay with Mom What I said…Mom never wanted to hear that from me>>What did you say?>>I said, Mom you’re 45, What will society think about you? Society….. And what about dad? Now society is prior to dad? Anyway this was bound to happen, why are you sad now? I am not sad because they are separating… I am sad because I was never able to understand Mom’s issues ever Well from what I know you never invested energy to understand dad also She wanted to have a name for herself.>>Name?? Mom always wanted to be a singer… but she got married when she was 20 and… then dad said what will society think if you sing now? Dad himself was 22 when he got married.. He wasn’t able to see Mom suffer with his family… so without thinking about society took mom with him and left home They say you have to compromise in a married life But if someone has actually compromised through out is Mom Dad has compromised a lot for you He invested all his money in you so that you can complete your graduation, when mom was 21 you happened They were dying for food, Dad was doing 2 jobs… It is not easy to work for 18 hours Rishab I am not saying that Dad is wrong, I am actually proud to be his son I am just ashamed about that fact that I always had housewife image of mom in my head What image you keep for Dad in your head by the way? What do you think… Dad wants to work for this stupid 10 to 5 job? Now I wonder…Maybe mom never wanted to get married She wanted to lead her own life Dad wanted to postpone marriage for 3 years, so that mom can complete her graduation Mom never appointed a lawyer, never signed a paper She said this piece of paper will not define her freedom Then suddenly, how did she took this decision without consulting anyone? Not suddenly, maybe a bit late though maybe she waiting for me to settle down in life Ofcourse, now that you are settled well, she can do anything And you will also support her It’s not like, Dad is still conservative regarding lot of things Mom tried to talk to him few times but he was always in denial Well even Mom is conservative Do you remember all the drama that took place… when mom came to know about your relationship with Zoya So now Mom will follow her dreams alone? They are right… there is no age limit to follow your dreams I can see her dreams in her eyes Who will you support, Mom or Dad? Yes Dad is conservative but there is lot that he has done for me And Mom… She is my life… I can’t imagine dining without mom… or not seeing dad sitting next to me there Who is with mom now? All I know she’s not with Dad
