Meera, a carefree young girl with a devil-may-care attitude, loved life and loved the people around her. Her childhood had been a normal one with parents who doted on her and two sisters who looked up to her as she was the older one. It was one big happy family.
The parents were both doctors and super busy most of the times but they never had to worry about the girls because they were pretty responsible and conscientious especially Meera since she was the eldest. Though Meera was good in academics and did pretty well in her class, she wasn’t very ambitious. She didn’t really want to study a lot and become a career woman. Rather she looked forward to being a homemaker, taking care of her husband, children and her home. Much to her mother ’s astonishment and consternation she loved to cook, paint and even knit sometimes. These were activities that her mother absolutely hated to do and she couldn’t fathom the reason behind Meera’s fascination for them. But then she never discouraged her from doing what she wanted to do and in fact encouraged her to enroll for cookery classes and pursue her passion.
After finishing school, Meera joined college but was now waiting to get married. She wanted to spend the rest of her life with a man who would take care of her, love her, cherish her and be there for her. And all these things she found in Sunil, the son of one of her father’s acquaintances. Like her parents, he too was a doctor but lived abroad. He had come home to give in to his parents’ wishes and get married. He met Meera, they both liked each other and in a few weeks time, they were married. Sunil had to leave within ten days of the wedding but Meera had to stay back to sort out her visa formalities and also to finish college for which she needed six months. She loved the idea of being married and looked forward to starting her new life with her husband. She felt that in Sunil she had found the man of her dreams and so would be very happy with him.
The six months got over and Meera was on a flight to London to be with her husband. Her parents sent her off with mixed feelings. They were quite anxious about how she would adapt to the new life and also about how Sunil would turn out to be. The fact that she was going so far away from them added to their worries. Meera, on her part, was looking forward to being with her husband though she was sad at having to leave her parents and sisters behind. Life in London, to begin with, was not easy. It was a new place, a new way of living and a new person to live with. She didn’t have any friends and she was alone in the house for a large part of the day. Yes, she did like to take care of the house, shop, do her groceries, cook but then what?? She started getting bored very soon. Sunil kept long hours and it was only during weekends that he could really spend time with her and that too if he wasn’t summoned to the hospital. Meera missed her parents, her sisters and her country. But there was no going back now. And to top it all, in a few months it started getting cold and like really cold. This kind of weather was alien to her. There was no sign of the sun which in India never seemed to leave them. It was depressing, it was gloomy.
But gradually she started getting used to her new life. By nature, she was quite accommodating and determined and now that she had to make a go of this new life, she was going to do that. She made a few friends and started meeting them occasionally. Most of them were a lot like her. They had come from India to be with their husbands and hadn’t picked up a job yet. Like her, they too had a lot of free time. Meera always looked forward to meeting them every once in a while. But what she realized was that her husband was not too happy with this change in her life. He wanted her to stay at home as much as possible and not socialize too much. His excuse was that since it was still a new place for Meera she may not find it easy to go out alone without him. However, Meera liked to be her friends and so she continued meeting them. Gradually her circle expanded and she made many friends. But whenever she told Sunil about a friend, he would have a hundred questions from who she was, to where she lived, to what her husband did to how close she was to her. Meera could never understand why he had to be so probing all the time. But then she let it be.
However, it wasn’tlong before the reason for her husband’s discomfort revealed itself to her. Oneday while she was having coffee, one of her new friends, Jyoti asked her if shehad met Anu, her husband’s friend. Meera had no idea who she was talking aboutwhich kind of surprised Jyoti. Now Jyoti didn’t know Sunil that well but herhusband knew him pretty well and that’s how she knew about his friendship withAnu. Though Meera did not pay much heed to what Jyoti said to her but she did realizethat the mention of Anu had led to an uncomfortable silence in the room. Lateron, when she was going back, she asked Ria another one of her friends about Anu. Riawasn’t very forthcoming, to begin with, but since Meera kept pestering her, shehad no choice but to tell her. And what she told her was absolutely shocking.She told her that before she came on the scene, Anu and Sunil had been a couple. They had been livingtogether for four years and everyone had expected them to get married to eachother. That is why it was quite surprising for them to realize that Sunil hadquietly gone off to India and come back with the news of having tied the knot. Meerawas too shocked and taken aback to react immediately though she promised Riathat she would not do anything stupid or rash. But of course, she couldn’t beher normal self when her husband came back home. She was trying to act normal thoughshe was dying to question him. There was a part of her that held her back. Allthrough the night, she kept thinking about her husband and his relationshipwith this mysterious woman. Sleep eluded her for the better part of the night.She kept tossing and turning. She had a million questions but no answers. Atlast, morning came. Sunil left for work but Meera was going crazy. She decidedto call up her mother and take her advice. Luckily her mother was free andcould talk. She too was equally shocked by this revelation and felt that theyshould have checked on Sunil ’s background before agreeing to the match. Shesuggested that the best option at that point was to question Sunil and get tothe bottom of the matter. But her take was that if Sunil and Anu were no longer in therelationship then Meera should let it be. She felt that though Sunil and hisfamily should have told them about his relationship with Anu but that could beforgiven and forgotten if they were no longer together.
On her mother’s advice, Meera decided to talk to her husband. But she decided to wait till the weekend when he would be in a relaxed state of mind and therefore more receptive. The weekend came and on Saturday when they were relaxing after lunch, she decided to broach the topic. All this while Sunil had been able to sense that Meera was not her usual self but he had been under the impression that as usual, she was missing her home and her parents. It was like a bolt from the blue when the reason for the odd behaviour made itself known to him. He had been most unprepared for this. He had always believed that his past had been buried and Meera could never get to know about it. And to make sure that it never happened he had always discouraged her from socializing and meeting new people. But now his secret was out.
However thanks to his presence of mind he quickly made up a story which was partially true and helped him to convince Meera. He told her how he met Anu when he had just arrived in London and did n’t known too many people in the city. Since they had both been working at the same hospital, they had ended up spending a lot of time together. They enjoyed each other’s company and it wasn’t long before they had fallen in love. But since they both didn’t want to get married at that time, they decided to start living in. All was well for the next three years. They were happy and life moved on until the day Sunil’s mother decided that it was high time that he got married and came back to India to look for a suitable bride. Sunil didn’t want to get married but couldn’t summon up the courage to tell his mother about Anu. For starters she was older than him, she had been living alone in London for quite a while and the icing on the cake… they were now living together. He knew that everything else could be handled but not the living arrangements. So he kept putting her off till there came a day when he couldn’t any longer because on that day he found his mother outside the door. She walked in, figured what was happening and walked out of the house after telling her son to wind up everything and come and see her at her hotel. Not having the guts to refuse his mother, he told Anu that they would have to break off as his parents and especially his mother would never agree to their relationship.
Anu on her part had also been sensing the change in Sunil’s behaviour and his gradual withdrawal from her for quite some time now. She hadn’t been able to find a reason but now it was crystal clear that Sunil was quite gutless and would never be able to act against his parents’ wishes. She, for obvious reasons, was livid with him and since they were living in her apartment she kicked him out telling him never to get in touch with her.
Sunil’s parents were now even more determined to get him married. They gave him a time frame of three months in which to look for an apartment, settle himself and then head back to India to get married which is what he did. Also on his mother’s advice, he decided not to tell his prospective wife anything about Anu. Meera believed the story though the fact that he had ditched the woman he had lived with for four years did not leave her with a nice feeling. But there wasn’t much that she could do, so she just let it be. But what Sunil didn’t mention was that Anu was now back in town though she had moved to the US when he had got married. What’s more, they were in touch all over again.
No longer doubtfulor suspicious in any way, Meera decided to put everything behind her and moveon. Her mother also advised her to do the same. Sunil on his part was now morecareful than ever before. He tried to ensure that Meera socialized as little aspossible with people who could tell her about Anu and him. In fact, a year and ahalf into the marriage and he decided that they should move to a larger place inthe suburbs. Though Meera was not too keen, he convinced her by telling herthat it would be a good idea to do that as they would need a larger house inthe future which they would never be able to afford in the city. But he alsodecided that since his work would still be in the city, they would hold on tothe city apartment too. So they moved and soon Meera conceived. Her parentscame over to be with them, to help them and then their son was born. Meera washappy, content in her world, she lived in a beautiful house, had a lovinghusband and an adorable son. Just what she had always wanted. Another fouryears and their daughter came into this world. Meera’s cup of happiness wasfull and brimming. But then just a little bit of the happiness decided to spillover.
Now that she had two children Meera ’s life became busier. What with their school, school work, after-school classes, play dates, birthday parties, she just had no time for anything else. Life became all about juggling between all her chores and duties. Sunil too had become very busy at the hospital and many times he would just stay at their apartment in the city rather than driving back late at night. What Meera didn’t realize was that slowly and gradually, such instances were on the rise and sometimes even on a weekend Sunil would find a reason to not come home. Meera sometimes found it very difficult to cope up with everything all by herself. Also, she started noticing that it was getting difficult for her to go through an entire day without feeling tired and even breathless at times. Initially, she attributed it to her taxing schedule but the situation seemed to be getting worse. She spoke to her mother who advised her to tell Sunil about it who could probably prescribe a multivitamin tablet or something like that to her. She decided to do that and the next time Sunil was home she told him about her feeling tired and exhausted all the time. He advised her to take a dietary supplement but even after six months of doing that, there wasn’t much change. So Sunil asked her to undergo some tests to try and figure out the reason.
And when the results of the tests came she was in for a shock. Initially, Sunil didn’t divulge the exact details but told her to take things easy. Not one to just accept things she kept badgering him till he had to reveal that all was not well with her. There was no cause for any immediate alarm but things were not going to get any better for her. Her reports had shown early signs of a degenerative disease and the sad part was that there was no real cure for it. This was not only shocking but something that Meera could not believe or accept. Why, was only 35!! How could she stop or even restrict what she was doing. Her children needed her. Her husband needed her and most of all she needed herself to be healthy and fit. She just couldn’t stop everything. Sunil heard her out patiently but told her that she would just have to learn to live with the fact. He also told her to keep the news of her illness only between the two of them and not share it with anyone, especially with the children or her parents. Meera agreed but found it extremely difficult to be her normal self. Any time she did something for her children, she wondered for how long would she be able to do it. She started pushing them towards doing things on their own, depending on each other rather than on her. The children obviously found her behaviour strange but didn’t really have any reason to question her. Sunil on his part tried to be home more often but it wasn’t always possible.
Life went on and other than her usual bouts of exhaustion, Meera was fine. It had been more than a year since her illness had been diagnosed but there hadn’t been any deterioration in her condition which was quite encouraging for her. But what she was beginning to find odd was the attitude of some of her friends towards her. She didn’t know whether she was overreacting or was being over sensitive but she could detect a note of a little extra concern, a little extra care in their behaviour towards her. Initially, she tried to overlook all the extra attention by telling herself that she was reading too much into people’s actions. But it soon became clear that she had been correct in her assessment. On one occasion when some of their friends had come over, while she was in the kitchen, her friend Ria asked her how she was feeling. Meera looked at her not knowing what to say when Ria blurted out that her husband had told her about Meera’s illness. Now Ria’s husband and Sunil were colleagues and apparently, Sunil had shared the results of her tests with him and he had told his wife about them. Meera was stunned because she had believed that her condition was a secret between her and her husband. Moreover, she did not want anyone to take pity on her. To say the least she was extremely upset and couldn’t be her usual self throughout the evening. What she couldn’t understand was why Sunil had to tell Ria’s husband about her condition if her illness was supposed to be secret. One part of her wanted to question him while the other part tried to think rationally and find a reason for this. Ultimately rationality won and she thought that Sunil could have consulted him in a professional capacity and therefore there was no need to make an issue out of it.
The incident forgotten, Meera carried on with her normal life. But it wasn’t long before she figured that her illness wasn’t a secret at all. Nobody ever said anything to her or asked her anything but ever so often someone would casually inquire if she was well, if she needed help with a pickup or drop or something like that. Sick and tired of trying to guess, one day when another friend showed this extra bit of concern she stopped right where she was and confronted the friend. After a little bit of hesitation, the friend admitted that she knew that all was not well with her. In fact, most of their friend circle was aware of the fact that Meera was suffering from a major degenerative disorder for which there was no cure. The way her friend said this to Meera shook her up and she was overcome by this terrible feeling of fear and uncertainty. Actually so far because she hadn’t detected any signs of deterioration in her physical self, she had been content and happy thinking that things were not so bad and somehow she was being able to hold on and deal with her illness. This conversation made her doubt all that and left her thinking if she had missed something. What was even more upsetting for her was the fact that it was her husband who was telling the whole world about her condition. This revelation kind of perplexed her and she couldn’t think of a reason for this behaviour.
A feeling of extreme disquiet started to take hold over her which is when she thought of speaking to her mother. In fact, now that she thought about it, she wondered why she hadn’t done it earlier considering that both her parents were doctors and could definitely help her. She called up her mother who as expected was shocked at this development. Her immediate response was to tell her daughter to send the reports to her which is the point when things started falling in place or out of place for Meera. To begin with, Sunil was not happy about the fact that Meera had told her parents about the illness. When she confronted him with the fact that he had told their friends about it, he just flew off the handle and started shouting at her. His reaction not only stunned her but more than that baffled her. What she wanted to ask was that if the whole world could know about her illness then why couldn’t her parents too, who besides being her parents were also doctors. But she couldn’t because by then his shouting had resulted in the children coming into their room to know what the matter was. She didn’t want to tell them so she decided to keep quiet. After two-three days she broached the topic once again, this time asking for the reports as well. Though he didn’t flare up like the last time he told her very gently but firmly that there was no need to send the reports because there was no point in sending them to a place where the line of treatment could not be any better. On her insisting that she wanted her parents to see them, he promised to have a word with them which of course he never did.
Sunil’s attitude started bothering Meera ’s parents as well. They couldn’t understand why he had to be so secretive and so unwilling to share the reports with them. Whenever they tried calling him, he would either not take the call or just take it and say that he was too busy to talk. This went on for about a couple of weeks which is when the parents decided to visit Meera and try and understand the problem. To their surprise and shock, they realized that Sunil chose the week of their visit to go out of town on the pretext of attending a conference. Meera’s father was now convinced that something was wrong. He decided to extend his visit and wait for Sunil to come back. Sunil obviously could not stay away for too long and had to eventually come back. Once he was back, Meera’s father insisted on seeing the reports and now Sunil couldn’t put that off either. On seeing the initial reports Meera’s father realized that some of her parameters were off the mark but that wasn’t really a cause for a lot of concern and when he checked some of the subsequent ones, the readings seem to be no different. But on talking to Meera he realized that she now seemed to be in a perpetual state of exhaustion and was always feeling drowsy and listless. Sunil’s excuse was that the drowsiness could be the result of some of the medicines.
Meera’s father couldn’t put a finger to it but he could sense that there was something fishy going on. He asked Sunil if they had taken a second opinion to which Sunil replied that he hadn’t considered it necessary to do that which was quite strange. Since Meera’s issue was not his area of specialty, her father decided to send the reports to a friend of his who was a neurologist and therefore would be in a better position to understand the situation. As a result of all this, Sunil started avoiding spending time with his father in law. He started spending more time in their city house on one pretext of the other. All this made Meera’s dad’s resolve to get to the bottom of things even stronger. Though he had to go back home, he was now determined to solve the mystery.
The doctor friend who Meera’s father had consulted got back and at the outset told Meera to stop taking all the medication. He happened to be visiting London at that time, so he decided to visit her and understand her problem. He had a long chat with her and although he wanted to meet Sunil too, Sunil avoided the meeting by pleading to be busy. Meera told him that all her exhaustion and drowsiness seemed to have disappeared ever since she had stopped taking her medicines. She seemed to be feeling much better. Her uncle now told her to stay clear of all medication no matter what. Then in front of her, he called up her parents and told all of them that though her initial reports had shown signs of the disorder, the line of treatment advised to her could not be justified. The medicines were too strong and not required at all. In fact, he went on to point out that apart from the side effects that they had already been showing, a long term usage of the medicines could prove to be quite harmful. He couldn’t understand why Sunil being a doctor himself had made her take the medicines for almost two years now and with the dosage increasing with time. In his opinion, she should have stopped taking them a long time ago. What he found stranger was Sunil ’s complete reluctance to talk about the issue and his obvious attempts to avoid him.
Meanwhile, the children through busy with school and everything else was finding the environment at home very unsettling. They could see that their parents had started arguing a lot and that their father was not very happy being at home. The sudden visit by the grandparents and now by their mother’s uncle was also quite inexplicable. No matter how much they probed her, Meera was unwilling to share any of the details with them. Though Meera on her part was trying to put up a normal front, it was getting increasingly difficult to do that. On top of everything else, Sunil was always in a bad mood. She made many attempts to talk to him but he wasn’t forthcoming at all. Even if he did talk, the moment she mentioned her illness he would just clam up. She didn’t know what to do. The mystery surrounding her illness, Sunil’s strange behaviour, the children’s unending questioning was getting too much for her to handle. She had questions but no answers. What was she to do??
Since she was unable to think of a way out she decided to confide in her friend Ria. Ria was aware of a lot that was happening in Meera’s life but she did not know much about her parents and her uncle’s visit. On being told about all of that she suggested that Meera should go to London and try and talk to her husband. Meera decided to surprise her husband and so on one of the weekends when he was planning to be in London she decided to go there. She was in for a shock because on reaching the apartment she discovered that he wasn’t there. It was quite surprising as she had reached by ten in the morning which was far too early for him to head out especially it being a weekend. She called him but his phone was switched off. So she decided to go to the hospital and see if he was there. As a part of her had known, he wasn’t there either. Now she was suspicious and wanted to unravel this mystery. She called up a few of his friends who either did n’t know about his whereabouts or didn’t want to tell her. Undeterred she decided to go to a friend Arvind’s place who was a good friend of her husband’s and question him.
To say that Arvind was uncomfortable on seeing her would be an understatement. Clearly, he wasn’t expecting her and now that she was there he didn’t know what to do with her. But of course, he had to invite her in and make small talk with her. Meera obviously wasn’t interested in the small talk bit and clearly came to the point. To begin with she wanted to know if he knew where her husband was and why was his phone coming switched off. Arvind wasn’t a good liar and knew that he would get caught so he admitted that he knew that Sunil was travelling and in fact was in Paris at that point. But he wouldn’t tell her the reason for his being there. In the meanwhile, Arvind’s wife Reema walked in and having overheard a part of their conversation told her husband to come out with the truth. Now whether it was the shock on Meera’s face or the fact that she no longer wanted to cover up for Sunil, Reema told Meera that Sunil was in Paris with Anu. It took a minute for this fact to sink in. Then came a hundred different questions. What were the two of them doing in Paris? Wasn’t it true that they were no longer in touch with each other? Wasn’t Sunil her husband who had promised to be true to his wife all those years ago when the Anu chapter had come up? What were they planning to do? Was he planning to leave her and their children? Obviously, there were no answers.
Had it been a mistake to come to London? Should she have continued to live in that bubble where she didn’t know about the truth? Should she have continued trusting him? But even in that shocked state, she knew the answer to that question. Now at least some of the things were falling in place. But still, there were a lot of things which she couldn’t explain. So she decided to wait for Sunil to come back on Sunday. She went to their apartment, told her children to manage and decided to take whatever was coming her way head-on. The look on Sunil’s face when he saw his wife on entering was priceless. It was a mix of shock, shame which were quickly replaced by this expression of extreme nonchalance as if everything was normal and it was okay for him to walk into their apartment with his ex-girlfriend. Anu who was with him was clearly very uncomfortable and uneasy. Meera told her husband to follow her into their bedroom, shut the door behind them and looked at him. She didn’t say anything but her expression conveyed everything. She meant business and now her husband had no choice whatsoever but to come clean. And when he did that it was like a can of worms opening up and showing no signs of ever shutting. Sunil admitted that he had never been able to get over Anu. He had tried very hard especially in the first few years of their marriage and when the children were born. Initially, it had been relatively easy. But shortly after their daughter was born he had bumped into Anu at a friend’s place and though they had not been serious at that point eventually their feelings for each other had taken over and they had decided to move in. Aware of the precarious nature of the relationship they had tried to keep it under wraps and managed to do it for quite some time. That was the reason why he would not come back home on weekends. But with time Anu started demanding permanency, a certainty in the relationship which he for obvious reasons could not offer. For some time he was able to pacify her to let things be the way they were but couldn’t do it for too long. Soon they started having fights, arguments which was the reason why he had also become very temperamental and moody. It was difficult for him to focus on his work, family and also on his relationship with Anu. He had neither the time nor the bandwidth to do that.
This was the time when Meera had started complaining about her exhaustion and low energy levels and had undergone the tests. He revealed that Anu had been with him when the reports of her tests had come and while he had been pondering over the reports, she had come up with the idea of prescribing medicines since she was in that field herself. He had known that she had prescribed a very high dosage which was not really required and could have side effects like drowsiness, and nausea. But not wanting to question Anu or to doubt her intentions he had just played along. Thereafter Anu had taken the reports from him on the pretext that she would keep monitoring the progress that Meera made without him having to bother about it. And for almost six months he didn’t get to see the reports. Anu kept telling him that the disease was progressing very fast and the treatment was not really helping. Meera also did not show any signs of any improvement so he had no reason to doubt or question anything. Meanwhile, Anu’s pressure to give permanency to the relationship continued. Sunil was in a fix. He loved Anu but didn’t know what to tell Meera, the children or the world. A couple of times they were spotted by some of their friends. On one such occasion when the friend questioned him on being seen with Anu, Anu responded by saying that since Meera was extremely unwell, Sunil was very disturbed and they had come out to discuss the reports and give Sunil a break. The ready acceptance of this reason by the friend gave Sunil and Anu the idea to use the excuse of Meera’s illness to justify their being together. That was how and why people had started to know about the illness. With time Sunil admitted that he did get to see the reports and realized that the medication being given was way too strong and could lead to serious side effects but since Anu insisted on continuing with it he just went along. Gradually he realized that since because of the medication Meera was forever feeling exhausted and listless, she had no desire to go out anywhere which suited him and Anu. He could stay in London whenever he wanted to be with Anu.
Trouble started brewing in their paradise when Meera started insisting on seeing the reports and especially when her parents entered the picture. Now Sunil was guilty but not a fool and he knew that his in-laws being in the same field would be able to catch him and his cover would be blown. That was the reason why he had been very upset with Meera when she had revealed that her parents were to visit them. He knew he couldn’t face them and so he chose to ignore them and stay away on the plea of being busy. Same was the situation when her uncle had visited them. He was now in a dilemma. He was torn between his family, his children and the woman he loved. He couldn’t think of a way forward. All their friends had come to believe that Meera’s illness was fatal but he knew that it wasn’t. Also, fact that Meera trusted him implicitly and completely made him very uncomfortable. Not only had he been cheating on her but he had been deceiving her and making her believe that she was suffering from a major illness. He had been able to fool her but couldn’t fool her family.
This revelation stunned Meera beyond words. She had trusted him!! But now her trust, her faith had been shattered. She couldn’t respond or react, she was so disoriented. Her brain seemed to have gone numb and the only thing that made sense was to leave the place and go back home to be with her children. She collected her belongings and without saying a word to Sunil or to Anu she walked out. Her dignity would not let her shed tears in front of them but the moment she got into the car she couldn’t hold them back. They came, they gushed out. But after a while she managed to compose herself, anger took over the sadness, she called up her parents and told them to take the first available flight and come to her. Not offering any further explanation she drove back home but gave no sign to her children about what had happened. She felt that since Sunil was still the father of her children she couldn’t do or say anything in haste which she may have to regret later.
From then onwards things just seemed to move on their accord and very fast at that. Her parents came and had a showdown with Sunil. It was made clear to him that Meera would not be having anything to do with him any longer. The children were also apprised of the situation and obviously, they were shocked at how their mother had been treated. They made it clear that there was no way that they were going to leave their mother alone. Sunil didn’t want to take on the responsibility anyway. Meera not only filed for a divorce but she also filed an official complaint for harassment. At this point, Sunil’s parents stepped in and pleaded with her to take back the complaint because that could lead to disastrous consequences for Sunil on the professional front. Though her father was dead against it, she decided to take back the complaint and let it be. Though spared by Meera the court did not spare him. He was stripped of a large part of his earnings to pay for his family’s maintenance and most of his assets were also taken away.
Though materially Meera got everything that she could have asked for but mentally, emotionally she had been scarred for life. Sunil had been the only man she had ever loved and this is what he had done to her!! She had wanted a simple life looking after her home, husband and children. What was wrong in wanting to do that?? Her fault, if one could call it that was that she had trusted him too much.
She knew it was going to be difficult to pick up the threads of her life once again but she was determined to do that. This treatment of her, of her emotions, had killed a part of her, had transformed her in a way that there was no turning back. She knew that she didn’t have a husband any longer but she still had her home, her children and she was going to be there for them. Her parents decided to support her in every possible way. If that meant living with her for the better part of the year, helping her financially, emotionally they were going to do just that. Her father even helped her to start a small catering business to help her earn money and keep her occupied once the children were on their own.
Sunil, of course, started openly living with Anu which is what he had wanted. But I guess one has to pay back for one’s actions sooner or later. It wasn’t long before Anu decided to move back to the US and wanted Sunil to follow her. He refused as he didn’t want to go to a new country. Despite that, she went ahead leaving him behind. She, who had been pestering him for a long time for a permanent relationship didn’t want it any longer as she found it to be too restrictive and binding.
He had a woman who loved him and could have done anything for him…He left her for another woman for whom he could have done anything but guess what ??? She didn’t want him!!!
‘Karma’ striking back?!?!
