Amma had fancied a checked Kanjeevaram saree with double coloured border since long.She saved money from household expenses and purchased the saree after considerable effort.She happily wore it on her birthday and showed it to papa forgetting his abusive ways.
Irked by her independent thinking, papa punished her hard and amma succumbed to the injuries inflicted on her.
Soon papa remarried.For her first birthday after marriage, papa gifted his new wife a beautiful saree…. my Amma’s checked Kanjeevaram saree with double coloured border.
