I placed few flowers and a small glass containing holy water in a tray.
I walked through the huge mansion and visited all the rooms that were open, thus sprinkling water and making the place holy.
I reached the room which was locked and dint move further as I knew that it was the same room where Raghav’s mother was killed. I took a step back and stopped. A though struck my mind. “What if I make this day memorable for Raghav? If not a celebration, I can definitely gift him something or give him a kind of surprise that he loves? I looked around and said to myself that whatever I have today is his. I bought everything with his salary so what could I give him that would make him happy. The ‘happy man’ I gifted him on his birthday wasn’t a special gift although he keeps it safely in his room on the table but still he isn’t attached to it. This time I want to give him something that would make him happy from inside as well.”
I sat on the sofa in the hall and kept thinking. “Oh yes, his mom’s photograph would be good. I haven’t seen any photos of his mom nor his childhood photographs. How about framing his mom’s pic and gifting him it. Aunty had given me a photoframe for my wedding and I can use it but from where can I get his mother’s picture?”
I got up from the sofa and walked about thinking “Should I ask Rajesh? Umm….No. He won’t help me and instead his angry glare will make me more nervous.”
