Careers & Clashes
"I have the SUV we can go in my car" he offered to her as Nivi gently kicked her feet on her daddy's chest cooing, dozing
"Can u stay here?" II whispered
"I am sorry I cant Jacque is in town and I am meeting with him early tomorrow at the Maurya gym and then we meet two unicorns" he said firmly
"U cant go to Maurya from here" she scoffed
"OK I am not about to fight in your parents balcony" he hissed
"Downstairs?" "Lets go down" she suggested
"No... I stayed two weeks ago for Diwali I stayed two weeks before that during Navaratri one night" he said
"that was because I was performing at Malai Mandir and Nivi had to be nursed" II argued loudly
"Doesnt matter... I STAYED" he whispered a lil loudly
"dad said u have to go to Pune and Hyderabad next week so u are free this weekend"
"Well... he is NOT my admin" R&B responded
They both glared down from the balcony
Nivi snored cutely
"Then u hold her all the way to the temple and back" she "punished" him
"And?" he mocked
"NO... U HOLD her... whole DAY... WHOLE FRICKING DAY.. she has been a pain in the ass... getting into every box, every empty basket, pushing books down, creatinga BIGG MESS" Ii vented
"U shud have called or had Sofia come over"
HOW CAN I DO THAT?
IF I DO THAT
THEN U WILL HIJACK THE BABY
I WANT A PERFECTLY BEHAVED BABY
I WANT TO STAY AT DII
"If u are tired we shud just go, u can return to the temple tomorrow" he said pointedly
"No... Amma has spoken with Bala Mami and she is getting me three margazhi (Margashirsa) concerts, one at Karnataka Sangha, one at Tamil Sangam and one at the temple" she said smugly
"So now u are suddenly excited about a music career?"
"Huh!" she shot fire... "I AM NOT... I am just very compassionate and DONt want to hurt Amma" she said angrily "Unlike... umm"
Huh? (scoffing)From the way you listed every gig in such detail I could have been fooled" he mocked, chuckling angrily
"Staying here is nothing short of incarceration for you, I get it" "So u may go ahead and use my familial committments and ridicule me"
"Thats an exaggeration" he spat
"Its been two frickin years, every time I have to beg and every time I get the same excuses worded differently" she said
Amma brought coffee in a davara tumbler for R&B
"ishita bring the baby in.. its sandhya kaal, standing outside is not good while the baby is asleep"
"TELL HIM, hes holding the baby, onakku teriyaleya?" (cant u see?) II fought with her Mom
R&B took his coffee thanked Mrs Iyer and went to II's room
"Enna solraan, iru sonnana?" (Did he let u stay?) Appa enquired
"NO" II said fuming
"WHY do u make it difficult for her every time?" Amma hissed to Appa?
"Naa ennadi kettuten? Cant a father ask?" (what did I demand?) Appa blistered
II went to the bedroom, he had laid the baby down in her crib by II's divan
She looked like a goddess in her lehanga and blouse
Thick gold bangles on her fat wrist and a tiny purple bindi
II used the bathroom, washed up, hit the light
"If u want to baby sit her, I can go to the temple since its about MY alternative career" she took a pot shot
He leaned on her window, one hand in his pocket the other scrolling through the phone
"U are wearing SHORTS!!! Last time Satyamurthy Mama said u need to wear veshti" she mocked him
"Hes probably gotten over it by now" he said with mock grief "If he hasnt, he can get some therapy" he threw the shot back at her
"ISHITA" amma warned from outside
"If he has to fight why does he come?" Appa hissed
"Ur daughter is an angel I agree" Amma cackled cynically
"She needs R&R... she cant get it there" Appa lied
"I will remember to tell Ranjanji" Amma ridiculed Appa's blatant lie
