That evening Laya’s mom looked as if she had got out of the bed on the wrong side. Laya has never seen her mom in such a pathetic state!
“Mom, What’s it?”
“Tell me, what’s cooking?”
“The guy who I saw for you…”
“He has a firangi (non-Indian) girl friend in USA.”
“So he called off the wedding talks”.
“He called off the wedding talks mom, not the wedding.”
“Relax mom. Stop hunting for Prince Charmings, my knight in shining armor will come by himself.”
“Ya, ya. Keep dreaming.”
“Like how you got daddy. I will get a handsome policeman.”
“Shut up. What is this new craze with policemen?”
“Even dad was serving as a police, nah?”
“That’s what claimed his life. I don’t want a police son-in-law. Throw even faintest idea of a police husband away.”
Keshav called and Laya sounded as if she got out of the bed on the wrong side. Mothers have this amazing capacity to upset us when they are upset!
To be continued…. If you have missed the prequels then do read it from here.
