‘Not another bite dear. It’s not good for your health’
‘Last bite, promise’
That’s how my mom and dad argued over sweets. Dad has a sweet tooth and he doesn’t realize when he has to stop and that is where mother comes in the picture.
For the last few days, mother has been wary of something. When I ask her the reason, she tells me about dad’s indifferent reaction towards the sweets.
But that is a good sign, I wonder. And that is what she’s always wanted!
‘Mom, good he’s conscious of his health’
‘You know nothing. Something is going on’
‘But he never eats outside. Even if he will, he’ll first tell you’
Days passed and her suspicion faded away.
Until one day when mother, she decided to organize dad’s wardrobe and discovered chunks of Sohan Halwa, hidden in the recluse corner!
