An event that has a mind changing impression
| It is a bright Sunday afternoon and the day is progressing rather slowly for
Jeev. Sunday being his weekly off. He is planning to go to meet his wife,daughter
and son at his in-law's place.
Jeev is self employed and a successful financial planner. His business
interests keeps him away from his family. Sunday being the day he spends with them
especially enjoying the evening with them.
But for the past two weeks his wife is off to her mother's place and he could
not visit them there.Today he had to bring them back home. He is quite excited to
Neha, Jeev's beautiful lady , had asked him to come early so he could meet
her parents. Sanah , their 5 year old daughter, was busy packing her bag. Stothra,
their six month old son was asleep. The clock struck four .It was almost time for
Jeev to come.
Jeev reached for the basement parking in the appartment but found no place
and had to find a parking space outside. He got out of the car with his hands full of
gifts. He was crossing the lane when he saw Tina. His college mate and long time
girlfriend. He was surprised to see her. It had almost been 6 years he had seen her.
The two of them had been togather for 3 years but broke up because of
different careers. Tina was a very ambitious female and wanted to live in the United
States. But Jeev had wanted to stay in INDIA. All their attempts to convince each
other did not bear results. Their wonderful relationship had to be called off. But the
memories cannot be wiped out. Jeev had preserved the memories in a photo book
with all they had been through. A year after their break off he was arranged to meet
Neha by his parents. Both the families agreed for the alliance and the two were going
to get married in a year's time. Jeev had told Neha about all that had happened in his
life, including Tina. He had even handed over the photo book to Neha which had all
the intimate details of their relationship. But Neha was rock solid in her belief and
emphasied that his past would not let her trouble their future. Jeev and Tina
exchanged numbers and left.
Jeev reached his in-laws' flat and seeing him Sanah ran across the living area
to jump his lap. Her excitement knew no boundaries she was absolutely delighted to
be with her Dad after so many days. Jeev sat with Neha's parents discussing and
chatting about his next business idea when Neha came up with coffee for all of them.
At 6.30 p.m. they got up to leave. Jeev picked Stothra in his arms and Sanah
on his back. They reached the car and he set Sanah on the back seat and Stothra in
the front in Neha's lap. He settled in the driver's seat and started towards their place.
It would take them an hour,s time to reach home. Jeev and Neha were talking about
the last fifteen days when Sanah asked what would change the entire perespective of
She asked " Daddy wasn't the lady you were talking near the car park :- TINA ?"
Jeev got the biggest shock of his life! Neha could not believe what she heard!
She asked Sanah what was she taking about. Sanah clarified that she had been
watching from the living room window the both of them talking.
Jeev was speechless and the only thought emerging in his mind was
" How Does She Know !!! "
They reached home but none of the two had the courage to ask her how she
happened to know about Tina. Sanah insisted on knowing and getting the answer for
her question. But Jeev was in no position to react. Neha took Sanah and Stotra in
Jeev understood that all his thought process had to change and it may not be the
same for him to think Sanah as a little child. But he decided he would answer
Sanah's question. He went to their room and discussed the matter with Neha, who
was also equally shocked. They discussed the matter and after sometime both of
them explained Sanah and answered all her questions.
Sanah patiently listened to their explanations. At last she got up and
said "Daddy you wanted to know how I came to know about Tina, I saw your photo
How Does She Know !!!
