When she stepped back into the room she found a beautiful magenta georgette saree with matching blouse and skirt lying on the bed. Maan was not in the room. Smiling she slipped into the skirt and just about managed to fit into the blouse although it was a bit tight in the front. She had tucked in one end of the saree and was about to wrap it around her when Maan walked in with a tray with two cups of tea.
Later they went to Baba's room to seek his blessings. While blessing her, Baba exclaimed at how time flew by. It was not long ago that she was a baby on his lap and now she is a mother-to-be, whose babies will soon be sitting on his lap. She smiled shyly as Maan wheeled him to the dining table where breakfast prepared by Krishna kaka was awaiting them. Ever since Geet started having morning sickness he had been managing the cooking, apart from taking care of baba.
After their breakfast Maan drove her to a mandir and offered prayers for her and his three unborn babies. Later he drove her to Handa House, dropping her off before leaving for work. As he turned to leave, Geet held his hand asked him if he can bring her something for her when he returned home that evening.
"Of course, darling. What is it that you wish for?"
She then hesitatingly told him that she had a craving for strawberries.
"Strawberries?" he asked amusedly.
"Yep! My tongue is itching to have strawberries in cream," she said with enthusiasm, rolling her tongue and smacking her lips to indicate how much she would enjoy the fruit.
"OK. If that is what you want, that is what you'll get."
At the hotel he called up his friend in Mahabaleshwar, which is about 250 kms from Mumbai and is famous for its strawberry farms and asked him to send across ten cartons of strawberries as soon as possible. The cartons arrived by that evening and he loaded them in his car before leaving for the Handa House, satisfied that he would be able to fulfil Geet's first pregnancy related craving.
As soon as he reached the Handa House, he picked up one of the cartons and rushed to the main door excitedly. His mother-in-law opened the door for him and seeing his searching look, informed him that Geet was upstairs in the guest room taking a nap. Maan thought he would wake her up with the strawberries. So he quickly opened the carton and picking up a dozen strawberries in his hand he quickly went to the kitchen and washed them. He removed the stems and cut them carefully in the shape of X and set them aside in a glass bowl. He then took a bowl of fresh cream and whipped it till it was thick and of a smooth consistency. He added ground sugar to the mixture and filling this up in a pastry bag with a star shaped opening at the end, he squeezed the bag to extract the cream on to the cut openings of the strawberries, filling each one up carefully.
"Yes, I did, Maan but now I just can't stand them. Can you please take them away?" she begged.
"I can't understand Geet, Mama. Only this morning she said she was dying to eat strawberries and cream. I had the strawberries specially ordered from Mahabaleshwar. But now when I served them to her she threw up at the very sight of them."
Soon Geet came down and they left for their place.
"Are they?" asked Geet in surprise.
