SATURDAY 100 WORDS: In Pursuit of Happiness

‘How can you do that, Dad?’ Sheetal and Tina were aghast and furious.

Both daughters shouted, “What will people say?!

The 70-year-old gently spoke, “Beta, I am old and found a companion in Tara who respect me for who I am. We don’t want to live alone during the rest of our lives.

Tina yelled towards her sister , “I don’t understand what the fuck is wrong with this buddha.”

The father stood still, “I am sad that both of you cannot understand how loneliness can kill. You are invited for the wedding on Sunday.” He walked away from the house.

    • Thank you, Diana. This is one topic I always feel strongly about and read how in Mumbai, some kids were upset with their father’ decision to marry. People re-marry for companionship and we should respect their choice. It also hold true for differences in a couple’s age who get married. Unfortunately, we use terms such as cougar or sugar daddy. Of course, the choice is personal.
      Thanks for reading and commenting.
