Waiting wife

Wife in bed, he’s on phone

Wife shows baby, he pats and rushes out

Food on table, he’s on iPad

Family gatherings, he only speaks of business

Official get-togethers, he’s at his best

Weekends, he returns home late

Anniversary, wife runs behind with a bouquet

He smiles, taps her cheeks, rushes out

Wife talks of child’s school, he nods without reply

Wife gets a call, she rushes out

Holds his hand

As the line straightens

On the life support machine

No comparison

When will we live, he thundered

Yet again

What the hell will we do?

Do you even care? He yelled at his wife

Look at what Rakesh’s in-laws gifted him?

Look at his flat? Rs2 crore

Do you even know to write the figure?

He’s worried, tensed that he loses sleep

He’s irritated, insecure that he faults his wife

Bloody I work like a donkey

And am ignored for promotion…

Look at our cousin going on overseas holidays

Look at them, how they spend shopping

Do we have the means?

Did you notice the gold on the bride?

The feast that followed?

All our cousins are well-off

And you just sit and watch reality shows…

……. have you ever thought about….

Shut up!

Yelled the wife, long many years later


I’ve had enough! For the last 16 years…

Do you have anything nice to say?

This is the only reason you’re NOT living

Stop it NOW!

Stop comparing

Ahhh!, she slumbered on the sofa

I’m happy with the way we live

With my job, your work, our son

Our home, our friends, our family

I happy like this

Pleaaaase! Let’s live!
