Quarantine…….

Indu found out Siddharth’s number from Amma’s mobile……

A strange feeling engulfed her heart,she oscillated between two emotions……….on which garnered the effervescent feeling of love and the other that flamed her heart as to what happened to her dearest one…..

She thought………….was Siddharth actually talking about Gauri chechi…………or did he mean something else?

Several times she dialled those ten numbers and then swiped the disconnect button.Everytime she picked up her black phone,the last dialled number stared and frowned at her,as if asking,”””do you really want us to stay here?you start our journey and you abruptly end it.What is the use of sitting like a glutton?press the deleted button to dump us…..

After two days of dialling and disconnecting,engaging and disrupting,pondering and haltering…………….Indu dialed Siddharth’s number.

Her heart thumped hard as she heard his voice.

“Hello! Siddharth…….this is Indu.”

“Hi!….she could sense his elation!!, So how do you do?” asked Siddharth.

“Siddharth….I want to ask you something personal……..don’t get it wrong,its not about our marriage….but something else.” Indu put pauses in between,it was awkward for her…..but the apprehensive ‘ASYLUM’ had been playing havoc in her mind.

“Siddharth,…..you know where your Uncle’s wife is…………? I mean Gauri Lakshmi………”

You mean my aunt who is in quarantine…………….
