Crawling Right To Me
'When I had gone to the Himalayas, I had met with an accident. Later I realised that I had damaged my fallopian tubes in the process. I couldn't conceive. We tried for a test-tube baby, but it wasn't successful. The doctor said we would have to repeat it thrice more. Each sitting of the procedure costed around eighty thousand to one lakh rupees. So instead of doing that, we decided that it is better to adopt. We thought that we rather use those three lakhs (which would have been used in the procedure) for the future of the adopted baby. So we adopted. My brother-in-law was against the adoption. He would keep saying that you both are not old or anything.
'There can be many tensions while handling the house... there have been times when I have kept the rice in the rice cooker and according to me pressed the "on" button, but it didn't get cooked. I thought it was cooked, but then when we sat for dinner, my mother-in-law called me and said "See for yourself, the uncooked rice is separate and the water is separate." I still argued my case and said that I had pressed the button, maybe it didn't work. I told her "Okay no problems, let me switch it on now, meanwhile whoever is hungry can have roti." Nobody said anything. Only thing my saas [mother-in-law] said was that "God knows sometimes where does your attention wander."
