C- Composed


Print
Her husband left the room at 8 in the morning. Go for his work at 11 and at 7 in the evening, sat with his parents for 4 straight hours and by the time he came in his room, she slept. Waiting. And in the midst of all this, the inside conversations of the room varied from bitter talks to fights, to criticism and mistakes that she might have made. Making love was an alien thing altogether.

This continued for like ever!

And yet, every damn morning, she woke up with a smile, for his family, for her work, for herself!

  12. This is a typical Indian woman's mentality. They just give themselves to their families no matter whether their needs are met or not.

    1. Acceptance and patience does wonders. I guess, that's what they dwell on and that is what keep things going and keep them sane.

  14. The sad part is that she woke up every morning, not with the resolve to change things for herself, but to look after her hubby. Weirdly sad. :(
    Is love really supposed to be like that?

    1. May be she hoped for things to get better one day, that not fighting may be the key. But yes, that's not what love is. And it's sad to see this.

  15. Someone recently told me - "Fake it until you make it!"
    And that's what most of us actually do, don't we?
