I had a cousin named Ajay, he was no less than my own brother. He completed Chartered Accountancy course in 2009 and he was of 26 years that time. He was also a M.Com graduate and MA in Economics.. He used to give free coaching to 11th and 12th commerce students and he also used to teach B.Com and MBA students while he was still studying CA. After he completed CA, he started private practice and he also kept up his coaching classes. Life was perfect for him. Then the elders came together and decided to look for the perfect girl for him. But he had already decided whom to marry. Her name was Anjali, and she was one of his classmate from where he got his M.Com degree. At first all the elders were against it because of a caste problem but then they agreed for his happiness. Everything went as planned, everything was alright for 3 months, then she started to show her real demonic form. She started to quarrel with him over very small things like wearing a blue shirt, listening to regional folk music, using a certain soap, coaching some children for free at the terrace of the house.
He somehow kept a lid on all of these because his father was a heart patient. One day it struck, his second heart attack and he was somewhat completely paralyzed. After this he needed special attention. She started yelling at him saying “I’m not here to look after your sick parents” so he appointed a house nurse. She had a problem with that too. He used to earn a good deal of money, the majority of which was used by her for shopping and unnecessary things and stuff like that. He started to fall short of money for his father’s treatment even though he used to earn around 1.5 lacs per month. He asked her to control her spending so that he wouldn’t have to take a loan for his father. She started a big fight for that also and started to demand that they move out and live separately..
He got angry at that and slapped her. His life ended then and there itself. She screamed like mad and swore that she would ruin his life and went to her parents’ home. Her father is a retired public prosecutor. My brother and all of us thought that she would automatically come back when she realizes her mistake, but she didn’t come, instead the police came, and without listening to anyone they dragged him, his mother and his wheelchair ridden father like dogs in the middle of night. Unfortunately his father died even before they reached the police station, his mother’s health deteriorated drastically and in an interval of just 4 days he lost both his parents, even he committed suicide …. all this because of a false allegation of domestic violence and dowry harassment.
The above is an account narrated by Ajay’s cousin.
