Arrival of Arindam
Arindam, a close friend of Manish saw Priya after three years.
Actually they never met each other after the reception day of
Manish-Priya marriage. Arindam is Manish’s friend from their
college days. Manish and Arindam got their job in the same company
after passing out from the same engineering college. However three
years ago, just after Manish’s marriage to Priya, Arindam was sent
to Australia for an off-site assignment.
While Arindam was in Australia, he got married to a girl from
Kolkata. Due to some reasons, Manish could not attend his marriage
for which Arindam showed his unhappiness to Manish. However, while
still in Australia, when Arindam heard about the accident of Manish,
he became extremely upset and therefore, on his return to India, he
rushed to his friend’s house to meet him.

closer. Initially, Arindam extended moral support to the couple as a
true friend of Manish. But slowly Priya and Arindam felt that both of

physical needs. For financial needs she is somewhat dependent on her
husband Manish and for emotional support she needs both Manish and
Arindam. She could have deserted Manish, had Arindam decided to
divorce his wife. Arindam categorically told Priya that he was not
going to divorce his wife Anamika and leave their only child for the
sake of Priya. Even he told Priya that if she was not comfortable

was also noticing the new development with help-less-ness and with
lot of heart-burn. He gave a long thought on the unholy development
of his wife and his close friend. Still he loves his wife as much as
he did few years ago. He was not willing to hurt his wife. He

developed a relation which is perhaps not good for me and Anamika.
However, I gave a long thought on the issue. Finally, with a heavy
heart I realized, I have to come to the terms of the reality of life.
I should not expect, Priya will live her whole life without any
physical relation with anyone. It is most likely that I shall never
recover to have physical relation with Priya. Therefore, I decided to
allow your relation to go ahead. Only my request to both of you,

Miracles Do Happen

Manish was lying in his bed with a vague look to the ceiling. He saw
a large lizard was chasing a small lizard. Manish thought that the
larger lizard was chasing the smaller one for food or for some other
reason. But his presumption proved wrong when he saw the larger one

something, a kind of small spark on the lower part of the body.
Manish and Priya had no physical relation for the last two years,
they were still good friends and Priya used to take care of Manish
properly. Therefore, Manish confided Priya about his experience of
that day. Priya also showed interest to know the whole story from
