She loved her family unconditionally. Though she visited them often, she longed to be a part of their smallest of joys and sorrows. She wanted to help her father mow the lawns, knit that blue-grey sweater with her mother, solve her sister's maths problems and take those long walks with her grandmother.The house was all sunshine with her around. And she knew, though they didn't tell her, that her absence saddened them all. Immensely.Her work in Delhi was also dear to her. She enjoyed her fame. Money. Success. And then there was Kunal…She felt like the waves that leave the land barren when they go to the sea; and the sea would lose its meaning without the waves.To make her two worlds meet was the biggest challenge in her life. Especially now.Her father had telephoned, " your ajji's condition is critical. She might not live longer. She would never say it herself, but she needs you to be with her."She listened silently, not knowing how to react.She thought of all those days when her ajji had put her to bed; when she taught her the secrets of life; and when, in those difficult times, ajji had lent a shoulder for her to cry on. Like the unpredictable waves that insisted on disturbing the calm waters, one news after another disturbed her.Kunal had called her, just before her father had, to say that he would not give her anymore time to think about their marriage as he had already done it enough. "You've got to choose between Delhi and Mangalore," he had said "and I know you love Delhi." He had hung up.'I love Delhi…perhaps,' she had muttered into the phone after he had hung up.Now, she sat on the beach in her hometown, staring at the familiar waves.
