Love Undefined ... Chapter 1

Take me to the Index 

Tarun was all dressed up for the occasion. It was his D-Day. The day when he will be starting his own family with the girl he had been in love with for 8 years now. Being the only son to his parents, he underwent a pampered childhood. Starting from the day he was born, he became the world to his parents. His parents had often narrated their sleepless nights when he was an infant not with regret but with so much happiness. He became their first priority and hence his wishes. They sacrificed every desire of their's just to fulfill his wishes. He is 27 now and is also getting married. But to his parents, he's still their little adorable kid. He joined an engineering college of his choice and then left India for higher studies. After completing his PG, he decided to work there and that became his home. When he broke that news to his parents, they hid their tears behind their smile as all they had ever wanted was for him to be happy.
Radha, can you believe that our son is getting married? It feels like yesterday that he started going to school and now he's getting married. Time flees with the blink of an eye.. Narayan exclaimed..!

Looks like our chotu is no more a kid. He's a grown man now and is all set to start his own family. Look at him. How happy he is with her. They are indeed made for each other. Such a beautiful pair isn't it? Radha's eyes welled up as she said those words.. It tears my heart apart to think that we wouldn't get to see him and his family. I wouldn't be there to tell my grandchildren stories that I have always wanted to. Why are we not gifted to stay closer to our son, she cried out. Shhh Radha, do not worry. He will keep coming to India now and then. And who knows, may be he will take us there to stay with him too. This is his marriage. You are not supposed to cry on such a happy occasion, Narayan consoled her. She quickly wiped her tears with the pallu of her saree and put up an instant smile on her face. As they were speaking, Tarun tied the thali chain around Priya's neck and they became husband and wife..

The next day dawned. They were at the airport to bid good bye to their son. Narayan whispered, Radha do not get over-whelmed. Our son might feel bad. Radha frowned, Its my son and he's leaving us and I don't know when I will get to see him. What is wrong if I cry? Narayan gave a comforting smile and walked towards his son to have an usual dad-son talks. Radha tried to initiate a conversation with her daughter-in-law. So do you like to live in a country that is so different from ours? she quizzed. I think I will be able to adapt myself to a newer environment,Priya hesitantly replied. If you do not like that place, then convince Tarun to come back to India,Radha beamed. Priya did not know how to respond and hence simply smiled. Having failed in the attempt to cajole her DIL, her jaw dropped. As a silence breaker , announcement came that it was time to board that came as a relief to Priya. They bid good bye and Tarun along with his wife left the place and their heart deserted....

  1. A very interesting beginning. Would have preferred if you had given some background of Priya. It would have enable us to understand her response to Radha;s request for coming back.

    1. Thank you :) well about her reply. She hasn't really talked to her MIL and when put in such an ambiguous situation, that announcement comes as a relief :) I know I am asking people to make assumptions :D I will work on it :)
