I feel happy today. I am still staring outside the window wondering whether the scenery will have any alterations today. It’s beautiful nonetheless. I wonder what must have Shubh been writing since all these days.
All the items on my to-do list are checked. I have another desire…. Well…. Life’s almost over, isn’t it? But I am living all over again.

“Are you crazy? I was married to someone else, Mr. Kher, and now, with you?”, asked Mrs. Sen.

“Well, there’s no problem, but on a CRUISE?”, exclaimed the old lady.
“Well, that was the deal, wasn’t it”, he smiled.
And both of them laughed heartily reminiscing their good ol’ days.
