You can't see him. You have no idea what he had been through all day. If there is something good or something bad, you have to make sure that he is emotionally doing well to take the news in.

You could only wish, that if there was a way to function without sleep. Because when she is free you are busy and vice-versa. Time is now an enemy.

Before I let you go, I would like to thank all those three couples who opened up and were kind enough to let me know their stories. Thankyou Mr. Joshi, Mr. Singh, Mr. Vinay Singhal .
