December 3. “Button, Rani’s surgery went off rather well. My elder daughter brought her back home at around 1 in the afternoon.
The girl is so brave she tried to get up and walk the minute she returned even after being heavily sedated. By evening she was up and about. Incidentally, the surgery happened on Thursday and not on Saturday as earlier planned because the doctor wanted to operate asap.”
“That’s great news. And how did Mowgli react to the whole thing?”
“She was very quiet, kept to herself and hardly ate. But she’s back to being her normal self after seeing Rani up and about.”
“You came home rater late last night!”
“So you keep track of that too?”
“And why not because you came into the study long after I had gone to sleep.”
”Sir and I had to go for a movie premiere and the screening only started after 10 when the time given was 8.30. Our trip to and fro was very tiring because it took us more than 2 hours to get there and then there was huge traffic congestion on our way back too. I went to sleep close to 3 in the morning.”
