April  15-18th
Hinjewadi is  a dusty rural town turning into a noisy"boom town" because of an IT Tech Park on the outskirts of Pune, on NH4 (Natl Highway for the uninitiated). It was  messy, disorganized, polluted "Electronics City" of Pune, much like Bangalore's was. Khanak's Chachaji had lived there for over 30 years when it used to be a village, long before IT nrought money and vices'''working away at his nondescript private accounting job until a debilitating liver disorder had almost crippled him. Both Khanak's parents and he himself could not keep up with the bills and procedures.

Shirdi was always the "family shrine", but more so after the miraculous help and recovery aided by the powers of the saint. The yearly trip to the shrine was happening without fail for over five years now.

Khanak loved her cousins, the older one was in college and the younger girl was in 11th grade. They "dreamed" of living and working in Mumbai"just like Khanak Didi"  they would often tell her. Her Chacha's house was tiny, there were two rooms in all, now with 7 people in it. Her Chachi was extremely talkative, competitive and petty. Her Chachaji treated her like she were his oldest. Khanak and her Mom did as much as they could around the house when they visited. Khanak usually shared the back room with her cousins, at nite, sleeping on the floor, in front of the rotating table fan.

Her Chachiji was  a great cook and Khanak decided that her food was more than enough compensation for her pettiness and selfishness. She always carried gifts for her cousins, since she was going with her parents this time, there were more hands so more bags could be carried. They took the afternoon bus out  of Dadar. The cousins were thrilled to see them all. Chachaji was teary eyed to see his brother.

Khanak lay in the center, as Mehul and Mitali both wanted "face time" with Didi.

Mehul started to sleep early tho, so it was just her and Mitali. It was  muggy and warm, the fan was barely doing its job, Khanak had taken an evening shower much to the displeasure of her Chachiji, but it was not helping at all.

She stared up at the ceiling, at the fan that hung from there, motionless. Reminded her of the many things she had to be thankful for. The wonderful job, the great pay package, the perks, air conditioning at home, healthy parents, good food, '''. Her phone beeps.

Her heart skips a beat. She pulls it out from uder the pillow to check, it's a Times Music SMS "Dam Maro Dum ke caller tune ko copy karne ke liye" message

She went to her received calls'''. Scrolled up and down''.. paused on Shaan's number, clicked on "Detail" and looked at each call, the day, date, time, hour, minute. He was most prolly at the Matheran offsite. They must be at the BBQ, Bonfire  and Business event that nite. There were plenty of girls from various vendor teams that would gladly pay him the attention and time he wanted. None would ever dare say to him "An affair is not part of the deal". She had brought the silver case with her to Pune, she had also brought much of the chocolates and handed it to her cousins. They had never eaten such delicious chocolates ever before. Her Chachiji had smiled for the first time that evening.

She could hear her Aada cough in the front room, she wondered if he was having trouble sleeping. "Maybe its me!, maybe he worries too much about me" "I shud not have been widowed. All their happiness has been wiped off the slate. He will never sleep well ever. Her Mom took something for her joints that usually knocked her out at nite, her Dad lay awake a lot, she realized. She missed the closeness of knowing all that when she lived in Ahmedabad. Now everything she learnt about them was condensed into a one day two day summary. Many times such summaries were grossly inaccurate and were "airbrushed".

She turned to her side and put her head on her folded arm, tried to look at the fading mehandi through the street lighting. Most of it was gone!

She was woken up by Mitali's squeals.

Khanak's ,Mom had brought a lovely dress material for her from Ahmedabad and she was excited to get it sewn, Khanak lay there smiling, nodding in response to her "Didi aap bhi chalo na, aaj hi chalet hain tailor ke paas"

Khanak had bought over 4 sets of clothes for her, but she was still excited.

Mitali: Aap kya pehanoge aaj?

Khanak: Hum Shirdi ja rahe hain, (gently admonishing her)

Mitali: Maloom hai Didi par tayar to ho sakte hai na?

Khanak nods. They were booked on the 9 AM bus that went via Sangmner  Talegaon and onwards to Shirdi. They were not sure but they could be spending the nite there at a dharamshala. Chachaji had to go sign some papers at a foundation.

By the time they completed their darshan and stepped out it was past 4 PM, Mitali, Mehul and Khanak were all super hungry, they whined and complained they couldn't walk any further. Her Aada and Chachaji had to quickly run to get some paperwork taken care of, but her Mom's knees were hurting really bad so her Aada wanted her to accompany her Chachaji, Kaka as they say in Gujarati.

Khanak smiled, did not complain stood up and started walking with him, it was almost a mile long trek from the temple complex to the foundation offices.

Khanak: Kya papers Kaka?

Chachaji: Who, ilaaj mein jitney paise lage ne, who trust ne diya ne, to who uske paper. (he seems very happy to go take care of it)

They enter the huge Charitable Trust building, hundreds and hundreds are waiting for their turn, the rooms are crammed with people, her Kaka looks at the letter in his hand, they start walking towards the room, her Aada has caught up with them also, as Mehul had promised to care for her Bai.

They wait in line for an hour for their turn in a long windy line.

The room is airconditioned and big, only a couple of huge tables and lots of steel almirahs every where lining the walls. An oldish gentleman nods, they enter.

Man: Namaste, Kab ka operation? (thick Marathi accent)_

Chachaji: 2006 ka

Man: Parchi lao, (he reads cant figure it out)

Man: Kaun sa trust?

Chachaji: Mujhe to yaad nahi (worries) Oh haan shaayad koi Gujarat? Gujaral?

Khanak's heart falls to the floor with a massive THUD!

Man: Tejeshwar Janaki Gujral Trust?

Chachaji: Wohi wohi (very happy)

Man: Who aaj yaha hain.

Chachaji: (impressed) Achha? Mujhe milne denge? Ek baar?

Man: Milne ka koi chanas nahi hai Bhau. Who bhijee log hai.

Khanak feels herself flush with color.

Chachaji: Achha? Chalo kahan sign karoon?

Man: Tumhara saign to agle 6 mahiney tak due nahi hai, yeh parchi kisne bheja tumko? (irritated)

Chachaji: Yeh dekho lifafa (shows him , man is not interested) To abhi main jaaon?

Man: Nahi ruko, kya maloom kisne bheja, abhi agla sign karke jao tum (tired)

Man: (pointing to 5 or so spots on a form, inputting some numbers into a PC on the side) Yahan

Chachaji: Thankyou keh dena mera.

Man: Zaroor (I have time to do this all day, they have time to listen to a million thank yous all day also, kinda irritated, bored)

Khanak suddenly feels irrelevant, unimportant. The distance between her and Shaan the most pronounced. CryCryHere she was waiting in line to sign some papers for financial help received. His family's trust had made the grantEmbarrassed. Over 12 lakh rupeesShocked. Khanak did not have half that much saved in her account, doubted if her Aada and Kaka had the other half between them.CryCry

Lost in thoughts, they step out from the door on the west, almost bumping into a group of people.

Dadi: Khanak beta?

Looks up shocked

Khanak: Dadi AAP?

Her Aada and Kaka are waiting wondering who she is talking to.

Dadi: Haan main to har mahiney aati hoon (lies) Aaj kaam tha is liye aayi.EmbarrassedClap

Khanak: I am so happy Dadi. Yeh mere Aada hain  aur yeh mere Kaka.

Dadi greets them both, starts talking about the trust and is very embarrassed by her Kaka's gratitude. Her Aada almost has tears in his eyes, as its completely unexpected for them to have met that one person who has granted him the extension on his dear brother's life. Dadi graciously declines doing anything, saying "It was not your time to go, I just helped in figuring it out" she says, speaking crisply in excellent English.

The employees waiting with her are signaled to leave. Dadi wants Khanak & Co. to go with her to the VIP guest house. Her Aada refuses as much as he can, but Dadi is adamant. She ships Khanak off to get the family, asking an employee to escort her to the car to bring the family back and walks away with her Aada and Chachaji rather briskly to Khanak's surprise.EmbarrassedEmbarrassed
