I just went blank for a moment and she continued saying “My husband used to work for Vikram Sighania and has been serving him for the past 40 years. He never took a single leave as his master Vikram used to never let him and he used to pay him so less that it was no enough for us to feed ourselves. I used to stay with Rajesh in the same house as he dint own a house.”
“After few years, Melica Gonsalves, Raghav’s mom and Raghav started staying in the house. Melica was very rude to me and Rajesh and she poisoned Vikram’s mind to throw me out of the house as I used to not do any house work due to my three months pregnancy. I rented this house where we are staying now and had to manage all the house work on my own as Rajesh was not given a single leave. He had to beg before Vikram to take half day and see the face of his child in the hospital.” She wiped her tears but they kept falling as she continued telling her story.
“After Sonia was born, it became more difficult for me as I had not only to look after her but also work in other houses to feed her. Rajesh’s income was too less to feed us both. I had to pay this house rent as well.” She said and I tried to console her saying “Sorry aunty. I did not know this.”
