During fourth semester study leave we(apunka gang) decided to visit everyone's house. On such a daily trip, we went to Surya's house also. Surya was his parent's pampered only son. He gets irritated whenever he hear the word 'pamper' hehe...
A complete kerala sadya of 21 items was in store for us. Once everyone finished sadya, payasam was also offered..
Amit:That was a great sadya..
Surya's mom: U had only one glass payasam.. Please have one more..
Amit: No mom.. I am full..
Then she went inside the kitchen..
Surya: Amit, Don't feel bad about this.. I don't like anyone else addressing my mother as 'mom'.. Please call her 'aunt'..
I was completely taken aback at this conversation.
Later Surya happened to be my roommate in the final year...
Towards the end of seventh semester, i had a small fight with my best friend Ranjna .. I was completely upset about it. I was not even able to face her. Witnessing all this Surya tried to console me..
Surya: C'mon man...Don't act like a kid..
Me: I told you it's difficult.
Surya: Why should you feel bad when she doesn't care about it..
Me: She was my best friend. We were always together and i feel awkward about going to college..You don't understand this as you don't have any feelings.. (I was a bit harsh at him)
Surya: Do you remember the 4th sem party at my house..Did you ask me why I made a scene there.. No.. you didn't..
You know that I am my mom's only son.. But you don't know that she is my stepmother.. My real mom died when I was 5. This lady took good care of me and I never felt that I am a 'Yatheem'. She even decided not to have another baby thinking it might lessen her love towards me. Don't you think this is love?? I never told this to anyone in the college..Yes...I am possessive about her..
I was dumbstruck hearing this.
