Beauty of Love and the Fruits of Patience.
Mr. Shyam Sunder and Mr. Ravi were best friends .Their friendship was impossible to break. Over the past 30 year , their relationship with wives changed a lot. Mr. Shyam Sunder's wife Avanti had left him when his son Anand was 2 year old child because her love had reappear. Whereas Mr. Ravi's wife Cathy had left the earth when his daughter was 12 months old baby. Though she died early but Ravi never ever thought of remarrying. As Avanti had a huge crush on him .These thing about her both the friends knew very well and remained silent by ignoring Avanti's wimps and fancies .Until one day" Shyam Sunder's son Anand announces his marriage with his beloved friend Sari". This created havoc in Avanti's mind as she wanted Sari to marry her best friend's son. Few weeks before Anand 's marriage Shyam Sunder wrote a letter to his son and would be daughter- in- law Sari .
The letter read somewhat like this "Dear children, I wish tell you something about my and Avanti's relationship. Though we might be a picture perfect couple who have been living togather for 30years in the same roof but we aren't a happy couple. As your mother was forced to marry me as per her father's wish. Because her father was a heart and would collapsed down if she did not heed his word. Those day Avanti was in with love my brother Vijay .They used chat with each other for hours but neither of them brought this topic in front of their families. But once when I got married to Avanti .I got to know about this only through her alumina and her hostel mates .Later on Vijay married my friend Ravi 's sister Menasha only to keep my family's heart .Still even today he yearns for Avanti's love .His spouse Menasha was a transparent being ,she shared everything with him but his attitude towards her forced her leave him forever. Before leaving him she had left a note in his house so that we all feel ashamed of ourselves .After reading her letter ,I tried to control Avanti's moves .As usual I lost her by the time I tried to get her back .You decided to marry Sari. So Sorry my Bacchus I kept you all in dark as I did not want spoil your further."
But Today I share a great relationship with Sari's aunt Menasha and she would be proud of the decision that you both have taken .I only wish both of you should live life happily not a life that I and your aunt have lived. Please be friendly, be good to each other, support each other in good and bad times. Don't go astray or sacrifice your love like I did but fight for it to maintain a healthy relationship . Please don't heed to saying of the world as they tend to pull you down like they did to me. After reading Shyam Sunder's letter they felt proud of their father and aunt .
The day of his son Anand's wedding dawned. All were present there especially Avanti who had come to give her blessing .But Anand and Sari refused to accept her blessing of any sorts .As they realized that the true worth of happiness lies in sacrificing like the way his father Shyam Sunder and aunt Menasha did .Looking into her eyes Anand said "My family is my father alone so I don't want these kind of blessing from you as he means a lot .My father isn't a coward or super smart like you Ms Avanti though he knew the fact of love life he never forced himself on you like true gentleman but you ......he stopped abruptly".Hearing these words from her son she felt totally shattered.
Much before she could turn ,Sari rhetorically asked "what kind Samskar did you parents give you?" to bring my aunt Menasha down .Isn't it true that you were the really cause of my aunt's broken marriage.
Shame on you Ms Avanti you don't deserve gem of person like Shyam Sunder nor you Mr. Vijay deserve my aunt Menasha. As they lived the geeta way life by doing their duty .So their happy and contented with whatever they have. So please stop your show off and leave the hall. After they felt their aunt Menasha and Shyam Sunder cajoled them.
5year later While Shyam Sunder and Menasha were playing with their grandchildren they saw their helpless and hopeless spouses returning back to their nest for good."As they could feel the full circle of their lives complete with a kiss on lips as they love them".
With lots of love and hugs
