komal was leaning on the back of the bed with the support of extra pillows.no oxygen,no saline but a white bandage covering her complete head. she was in hospital cloths. it was a special and private room with all facilities.
nitin was feeding her hospital diet.

nitin:'aur thoda...'he tried to feed some more.
komal:'nahi......i don't like this food....ewwww...'she shrunk and turned her face away from the food plate.
nitin:'one more mouth...please...'

nitin:'yeh.... mere naam ka....'he took some food from the plate and showed near her mouth.

he went with sumitra to a departmental store to buy basic provisions.he has already booked a double bed room apartment for them to stay.

nitin:'aunty, help me to pick up the provision...'
sumitra:'nitin...believe me i never went to a provision store before'
nitin:'aunty...even i too .let us try together...'they moved around and pick up the things from the shelves.

they took a rice bag , golden temple wheat flour pocket, salt, sugar,chili powder,tea leaf,coffee powder, milk,cholesterol free oil,few spices,some fast food items like two minutes noodles,oats, bread, jam,fresh vegetables like capsicum ,cauliflower ,mushroom,carrot,potato, tomato,spinach, ginger, garlic ,onion , tomato, green chili, fresh coriander leaves etc.nitin paid the amount in the counter and collected their provisions in six big plastic nofrill bags.
nitin took four and gave two to sumitra.they came out of the shop with heavy bags in both their hands.in her whole life first time sumitra carrying heavy bags and walking.it was highly impossible for sumitra to walk with luggage in her both the hands with her ghunghat on.both her shoulders started hurting .nitin was walking ahead , sumitra was following him with difficulty.
nitin:'aunty hurry up....we are already late.komal will be alone in the hospital...'he was worried about nitin.
sumitra:'i can not nitin...'she kept the bags down on the side walk and stood for a while.first time in her life sweat appeared on her face.she wiped it with her hands and looked at her palms.they turned red.
nitin:'what are you doing?...'he turned back and looked at sumitra.
sumitra: i can not...'
nitin:'aunty..bas ho gaya.sirf teen minute ka raasta...we can see the white building...' pointed out a near by building and encouraged her.
look at the apartment where they are going to stay!
sumitra took the bags again, gathered all her courage and started walking fast... fast...fast...and fast.her blouse became wet with sweat. finally they reached the apartment 604, in hurry they kept the things some in the fridge some out side and rushed back to komal.
sumitra went and fall on the couch.she was damn tired.
nitin:'sorry komal...we were late...'he went and sat beside her.he too was tired.
sumitra:'nitin give me some water...'
komal:'amma....what happen? or you ok?'she asked looking at her condition.
sumitra:'i am fine...'she tried to smile, hiding the pain in her shoulder and palms.
