When my daughter Aastha was just 6 years old and my husband was posted at Bidar (Karnataka), one day I got a call from my real sister telling me that after having undergone a “bypass surgery”, her husband had been diagnosed with Colon Cancer. I got extremely upset and shared the news with my husband. He advised me to adjust to the harsh reality and try coping up with the situation. Within a month’s time, our world changed. I made numerous trips to Delhi to be with my sister who was distraught. Fortunately, after my brother-in-law went through a surgery, he was on the path to recovery. The doctor advised us to take good care of him. But just after fifteen days, when things seemed a little settled, my sister complained of stomach ache.
