But after this evening, I realized it was these small pleasures in life which I was missing. We began with a stroll in a public garden, filming each other on our video camera – to preserve the nice moments for posterity.We followed it up by a nice dinner and then saw the Hindi movie ‘Black’.It felt like a hammer and I fell on the pavement breathless, not even able to speak or groan. She seemed to be in a state of shock.“ Please leave us and take whatever money we have” I pleaded pointing at my wallet, watch and camera “ I promise we will not report you to the police, if you leave us unharmed”“Ofcourse we will take all that too, but we also want a taste of your sweet wife” said the tallest guy gleefully “We wont harm you , if you co-operate”My wife knew what was in store for her and she began to kick her legs trying to free herself. Once I was tied up to a pillar , with a handkerchief stuffed in my mouth, all the guys turned their attention to my wife.
Chapter 1It was after a couple of years that my wife Jyoti and me finally saw a film in a cinema hall.
I hardly get time from my busy work schedule and prefer to watch movies on television.
It was a nice film and we both enjoyed watching the movie together.
Our house wasn’t really a walking distance from the cinema hall, but the night was pleasant and we were very relaxed, so we decided to walk it up.
I proposed marriage to her and she very shyly had said yes. Infact at times , because everything went off without any hitch, it almost felt like arrange marriage. But walking down the street it still felt as good and romantic like it was 13 years ago.
Our family was what one can say as a complete happy family. Being in middle of monsoon, the streets were quite empty.We kept talking sweet nothings as we walked swayingly. Normally we arent demonstrative in front of people, but today we were taking a bit of liberty. We cant call ourselves conservative, but we had been brought up in families where we didn’t believe in the concept of girlfriends or boyfriends. I was her first love, and for me too she was my first love.Though our parents were not against it, but during our unmarried days, we just didn’t have any boyrfriends or girlfriends. And only when we realized we both were serious about each other , that we went ahead.“Ajit, its almost midnight” my wife said, not alarmed, but a bit surprised that we had lost sense of time.“Ah , its ok, tomorrow is Sunday, and Nikhil is also staying ovbvernight with his friends.Infact I feel like having coffee now” I said with a laugh.“No lets go home, I will make coffee for us” She said in her sweet voice. She was smart and educated and well placed in her job, yet not too modern or extravagant.We were holding each other hand’s as we walked , feeling so much of love for each other. We had been married for 13 years, yet we were so much in love with each other, as if we were newly weds.
