"I need to buy new specs for Ma and also a new sari. The old ones are tattered. She hasn't bought one ever since Papa died 4 years back. The money earned by stitching clothes has been spent only upon my education.
I can now convince Radha's father to let me marry her. She has been my best friend since last 10 years. She has always waited for this day
Oh, I forgot I even need to get Ma's bangles she has mortgaged to the baniya. She will be so happy to get those treasured ones back.
After completing my B.Com, she had to give them to baniya, for I needed money to stay in Mumbai for initial days after I got job.
Today I have completed 3 months. Super Boss, Mr. Clinton has promised me that now I will get salary of 15,000 Rs. per month, after appreciating my work. Till now the stipend was so low that I could only survive in Mumbai and couldn't send any money to Ma.
She will be so happy to know that she can now stay with me."
"Vijay, We are extremely happy with your work. But as you know, recession time has affected us badly. Mr. Clinton informed us that we need to cancel the jobs for all the interns. I am sorry to say but..................... "
