Mak­ing the de­ci­sion to have a child is mo­men­tous. It is to de­cide for­ever to have your heart go walk­ing around out­side your

body.

Se­jal saw her child say good­bye & run­ning in­side the school gate. She was happy as it was her first day at school. She came home & made her­self a cup of hot tea & sat by the win­dow. A silent tear slipped through her eyes. She re­mem­bered the words her fam­ily said – please stop be­ing fool­ish - abort the child. Please marry some­one… & she smiled at her­self for be­ing so strong & go­ing against all odds & bring­ing Pari into this beau­ti­ful world.

Ra­jdeep & Se­jal knew each other for lit­tle over a year now. Both knew what they deeply felt for each other. One day they were sipping cof­fee at the CCD. Ra­jdeep went down on his knees & pro­posed her. That was the best day of her life. He said, “Se­jal…my sweet­heart, I am sure you know I am al­ready in love & com­mit­ted. Still, would you like to be my 2nd love?
