When She Met Her Friend…

On a fine day after shopping, Naina took a shared car pool to only realise that she was sharing the cab with her college best friend Tina. It took no time for both women to start gossiping about their new life experience of being married.

Array

She Spoke Her Heart Out…

The women were so engrossed in discussing about the problems about their marital status that they did not care about the other passengers in the cab. Naina took no time to share her newly wedded experience, where she mentioned of her MIL being a trouble maker and her FIL being a bossy man, while her dear hubby being a total mumma's boy.

She Poured Her Heart Out…

She discussed on how she was not allowed to watch TV as her father-in-law loved handling the remote and she never got a chance to cook her favourite dish and her MIL had issues with her food preferences.

Her Friend Was Shocked…

Tina expressed on how she always adored about Naina's carefree attitude and now how she has drastically changed for the sake of her marriage, for which Naina said that she loved and respected her in laws just the way she loved her family, and about the complaints, she revealed that each family has its own set of problems and adjustment issues. All that you need to do is go ahead with the flow and not cause any trouble.

Her Stop Arrived…

She Looked At The Man In Shock…

It was her father-in-law who was sitting in the front seat and he heard her entire gossip session and yet did not utter a word, while Naina did speak a few ill words about her in laws. There was silence around and they walked home and Naina was scared of him revealing about her thoughts to his family.

He Let Her Watch TV That Night…

During the night while Naina was in an awkward state, her father-in-law handed her the remote and asked her to watch her favourite serial. She was confused and kept wondering when he would reveal it to their family.
