Kalpana enters the kitchen and notices her mom cooking lunch for the family. “How to convince mom for the late night party? After that Goa trip, mom warned me that it was the last time I would party with my friends. Damn! Grand ma also is not there at home nor Preeti aunt is there to give me the permission. If I tell mom that the party will end at 5:00 a.m., she will start panicking and will 100% not let me go. What to do? Think something Kalpi.”
Kalpana approaches her mom and takes a bite of the snacks in the plate. Her mother notices Kalpana eating the snacks and she takes the plate away saying “Kalpi, these snacks are not yet boiled. You are eating them raw? You’ll get stomach pain because of this.”
Kalpana puts down the piece of the bhaji down and hugs her mom from behind. “Mom…You are cho chweet…I just love you.” She comes before her and pulls her mom’s cheeks saying “Mom…You’re such a cutie pie…” She begins pressing her mom’s hand and her mom gets irritated as she is busy frying the potatoes in the hot oil. “Mumma…You’re so nice…You do so much for the family and I always only keep complaining…Never appreciated you. You’re the best mom anyone child can get…Muah!” She says with a wide smile.
Kasturi starts staring at Kalpana and she raises her eyebrows and asks “What do you want in return of this appreciation?”
