I was working with the Singhania family for years and I and Vikram sir was almost of the same age.
It was one day when, Rakesh Verma (the owner of Verma Industries) had invited Vikram sir to Pune to sign a partnership contract. Vikram visited the city and met Melica Gonsalves who was working as Rakesh’s secretary. In a week’s time, Vikram found a soul mate in Melica and got married to her in spite of knowing that she had an illegitimate child named Justin with her.
Vikram brought Melica and a 5-year-old Justin to his house and gave him new name, Raghav Singhania.
After few months, Vikram sir got to know about Raghav’s real father and he was none other than Rakesh Verma. Melica madam had an affair with him and he promised her that he would get married to her but he cheated her and got married to another woman leaving a pregnant Melica alone in her life.
Vikram sir wasn’t able to digest this truth and he kept quarreling with Melica madam as Rakesh used to often come to meet Raghav baba and he doubted that she might be still having an affair with him which was untrue. He had warned Melica madam to not let Rakesh in his house again.
He started feeling so lonely that he found a friend in books and he kept reading dark stories about Cannibals and Flesh Eaters.
