Situations may change drastically within a span of few years. Human relations are also changing over time. It happened to Manish’s family with few twists and turns. However, final U-turn of relation between Manish and his wife, Priya is the icing on the cake.

It is a fictitious story. Any resemblance with the main characters with any living or dead persons may be a mere coincidence only.

Thanks to my readers and friends and above all my family for their constant support to write something usual and unusual. I love them all.

Thanks to Smashwords for publishing this story book along with my other books.


Chapter I: Manish and Priya

Manish is an intelligent engineer, having an excellent job in IT sector located in Delhi. He married to Priya who happened to be his childhood love. Both the families of Manish and Priya are staying in the same locality of a suburb of Delhi. Priya is a modern working lady.

However after their marriage, they took a rented house near to the working place of Priya. In the process, Manish had to travel almost 20 KM daily for his duties.

One day during breakfast, Priya told Manish that she wanted to leave her job as soon as Manish would get his first promotion. She showed her optimism that after Manish’s promotion even with one salary they would be able to manage their daily needs. Manish appreciated her wish.

Considering those issues like promotion of Manish and leaving of job by Priya, they decided to have a baby only after few years; that is after attaining their financial stability and sufficient time for their child etc. In other words, they delayed their decision to have a baby as they were not mentally prepared to have a baby immediately after their marriage.

They were a happy couple till misfortune struck the couple like a thunderstorm on a day with clear sky.

Chapter II: Near Fatal Accident

On a fateful day, Manish had a near fatal accident in the early morning when his bike was hit from behind by a dumper while he was returning home from his night shift. He would have died in that accident on the spot itself had he not been picked up by a PCR van and was admitted to the nearest hospital. Priya was also immediately informed by the police.

When Priya reached the hospital, Manish was undergoing an emergency operation. Within few hours both the families reached the hospital.

After fifteen days, when Manish was discharged from the hospital, he was no more the same Manish, who used to be. Lower portion of his body had been permanently paralyzed.

As usual, everybody near and dear to Manish and Priya thanked the God for saving his life. But---

Chapter III: Life Made a Messy-Turn for Manish

Everything has changed for Manish and Priya after that very accident. Manish and Priya got a hefty compensation from the Government.

However, Manish who was working in a private firm had to resign from the job for his disability after the accident.

Good news for the couple was that on compensatory ground, Manish got a clerical job in the Municipality office, dumper of which made him disable for the life.
