After his father’s death, his mother has become more attached to him – emotionally. And being the only son, he fully realizes his responsibility towards her. But then he has made a promise to his love too. A promise to be with her – forever.

And now, he is torn between his mother’s and his own happiness.

How do I tell her about you”, he wondered aloud to her today, “I do not want to hurt her & I cannot live without you too. I wish we belonged to the same religion; then, even we would have had a happily everafter!”

    Sometimes, its just so hard na?! Sigh!! I hope he does tell.. and things work out!

  3. It’s a tough call but I feel it’s about our lives..I should ask whether we will be happy inflicting pain on the self? But, that doesn’t mean we don’t love our parents:)

Would love to hear your thoughts.........
