Kalpana clears her throat and fakes a smile saying “Mom…You understood that I wanted something from you?” She makes a puppy face and her mom smirks saying “Kalpi bachu…I’m your mom…You were 9 months in my stomach…If I don’t understand you, then who else will be able to understand you?”
Kalpana bites her lip and hugs her mom from behind saying “Mumma…My friend has kept a farewell party at her house and she has invited all her college friends, including me.”
“Hmm…That’s good. You should go then.” Her mom says casually. “Really mom? I may come home tomorrow morning. It’s fine na?”
“What? Tomorrow morning? No…You can’t remain outside all night. You can stay there till 10 and then come back home else…” Her mom scolds her.
“Mom…Mom please…It’s our farewell party. The party will start at 12 and end at 5. Please let me go. It’s the last day I’ll meet my friends. Please mom…Please.” She hugs her mom and while requesting her, she keeps shaking her and Kasturi gets confused as she is frying the potatoes with one hand and stopping Kalpana from rocking her with the other hand.
“OK OK Listen…One sec…” Kasturi says while stopping Kalpana and Kalpana says “Mom…You’re OK with it? Yay! Thank you thank you so much mom…” Kalpana says and gives her mom a kiss on her cheek and this leaves Kasturi astonished and blank.
