Evlin # 4 _ A Villain

A real life experience of my dearest friend, with her permission…

Characters : Evlin and her husband

Scene 1

A real love story starts here after marriage.None can’t seperate them even now.A beginning of quarrelsome in the name of a Dog.The Dog was husband’s pet, inside the house with him. His wife never liked the dogs inside the house.She knew that its her husband’s pet so she adjusted maximum.Its something beyond her thoughts,since a single child with a dog from childhood, he considered the dog as a sister.All thoughts of her husband seems to be indifferent for the girl.A house full of dog’s hairs, in dresses, kitchen, plates,carpet, bedsheet everywhere.

Scene 2

The old dog became sick .All treated it like a kid now, full treatment and care. And very soon, the dog died.A bad day that ruins their relationship.For past few weeks, the girl suffered some health issues due to lack of sleep, bad foods and the behavior of her mother in law,

They took the dog inside the room and lied that body on a teapoy, and the whole family cried, kissing, hugging that wounded dead body.For her,when a pet dies they will put that body aside- outside the house, until the cremation..its wounded and its not right to keep a pet’s dead body inside the house scientifically, its harms human that too a whole night,water coming from the dog’s mouth, there was no place for the cremation so planned to call the muncipality, but their procedures was not acceptable for the family.They keeps the body on the teapoy, covered with a cloth.

Scene 3

The husband is very upset, the girl tried to consolidate.He visited the dog’s dead body for kissing, all thats not acceptable for her.Next day morning, there was no option for cremation of the body, they took that body to their hometown- it was around 5 hours journey. The girl was sick , she said no to that journey.Her husband and his dad was sad to leave her alone at home but they needed to do the cremation.

Scene 4

They reached back at evening, that night the girl was mentally depressed.She remembered a word her husband communicated last night ” Only that dog gave an unconditional love to him”.It made her sad, she asked about that to him.She realized that nothing more important to him than a dog.He said, it’s difficult to continue the relationship and so..She cried like anything inspite of her health issues.

Scene 5

Fights continued with one or another.She never allowed to buy a dog anymore.She witnessed her husband situation on that day.If it happens again, she don’t know what will happen next.For her nothing important that her husband.But very soon, he bought another one since he can’t live without a dog but can live without her wife.She is not with him now, never wished to see her, no conversations, no phone calls…

She left that home now.

She quoted “There is no space for me in that home, no value, no voice. I love my husband the most…I knew my husband too..But….

Who is playing in between?

Dear pet lovers,

It’s a true story. Its not against your love towards the pets, but after I heard this story from Evlin. I would like to add a point here, nothing beyond HUMAN LOVE.

She asked me ” When I’m going to see him again?”

Evlin# 3 – A Real Life Experience

Evlin – Part 3 ( At Kitchen)

Evlin went to the kitchen to help her mother in law.She took the broom to clean up the house.Suddently, a voice raised ” You dont need to do the clean work, your office work starts at 9 am so get ready to start your work. Evlin said” there is ample time, so I will do” again the lady said” In this house , there is not that much work to do, if there its only a few that I can manage.She tried to catch the broom from her, but she said again ‘ I will do”.

The contrast is the same time she acts like Evlin is not doing anything at home not directly indirectly..She said to her later that she is not a good daughter in law, not taking up the responsibilities at home, the point is her mother in law never allowed it, She need to have control on her son,once she added that point to Evlin.

Daily this is the think happening in that house.She don’t allow anything to do..But after her son wake up and ask to Evlin ” At which time you wake up today, what all things you did in kitchen and home?? She is in middle of both conversations. If Evlin starts to do something, the mother in law says ” you dont know anything, you cant do anything.”

She is ready to do the household duties morning by adjusting the office timing but mother in law never allowed that too.She needs to get calls from office, so she used the head phone and managed the kitchen work.On later her mother in law added ” She is always with phone calls”

Evlin is totally confused, each time her mother in law behaves differently. Evlin asked to me – Whether she really loves me or …..

Evlin don’t know even to put milk tea.When she asked her many times, she gave all information wrongly- measurement of tea spoon ,adding water- some prefer strong tea, some light.At last Evlin’s mother helped her to put an excellent tea and her husband also accompanied.She cooked many tasty dishes, her husband loved the cooking but her mother in law never enjoyed his son’s words.
If Evlin refer any youtube videos for cooking, she felt as an insult.

Once she prepared a cauliflower curry, it was a big flop and she asked with mother in law to taste the dish and ask for help to add the taste makers , she replied” everything is fine, nothing to be added,you can serve it.Her mother in law served that dish for dinning. Evlin’s husband said, “its not good.Her husband said everything openly in case of cooking , if it good he said good.
Later at night, her mother in law add something to it and served nicely. Hope you all got that point!!

To be continued…..


Evlin #2 – A real life experience

First of all, I would like to deliver my sincere gratitude to all of my fellow bloggers. Your support made me to continue her real life story again.

Evlin – Part 2 (A call )

Their family consists of 4 members including Evlin, her husband, father in law and mother in law. The hardest thing is, they don’t know what she wants? How she felt in that home ? ( I don’t know on which era those people are living).Evlin is employed in a reputed organization, in a reputed designation.Her work starts from morning 9 am to 5.30 pm ( now work from home option). Once she received an unknown call to her office mobile phone. The person actually tried to flirt with Evlin.He called once, twice and thrice in her phone and asked hello, what you are doing???…..??

She already conveyed to him that its wrong number but he continued the call. At last she gave a very nice reply to that indecent guy $#@&*^.😄I’m coming to the point now, on that time her mother in law was adjacent to her. She quoted “People consider working girls like that only, so that they will try to call you”

Evlin replied to her” Then you won’t know about a woman ( Hope she haven’t seen a woman in there entire life, I don’t know)

Dowry Dowry…this system is still there..I still remembering at my school time,in social studies book, learned about something related with dowry prohibition so it was abolished years ago by the law itself.The pathetic fact is…its still rules in women life.Many families encourages the dowry and used a word ‘GIFT’ as an ornamentation.I’m talking on those who are financial stable,they are ready to spend all their amount for their daughters or sons marriage ( its completely based on the family interest and their dreams- I just like share the encouragement of dowry system)

I found certain things related with dowry

  • Its a word that has the power to receive negativity.
  • Its spoils the trust in relationship
  • An evil term.

Its all the personal interest to give the amount, property ,wealth….And of course, the wealth of the family will automatically carry forward to the next generation.One who stand by their own feet is something different.We can also term him/her as a self independent person who earns for their own living.Wife is submissive to her husband but both have an equal role to build their home into a beautiful family.A space that they can share anything and everything with lots of lovee rather than arguing eachother for perishable things.
