All had gathered around the Priest who was busy chanting the Mantras… and then it was time for Kanyadaan … when the father is supposed to give away his daughter – the bride.
Unfortunately her dad lost his way to the temple, and could not be located. The priest was getting impatient as Muhurat Time was flying by.
It was then Ram suggested that Dhunn’s brother – ‘FS’, could also perform this rite. No screamed his wife ‘Darling’. Not when FS’ father is alive. The Pandit should wait. No one should take the father’s place in this rite. It was to be only his privilege to give away his daughter. Ram waited until Dhunn’s Dad arrived.
A year later a child was born unto Prakash & Dhunn. Their little princess, their Duniya. “It was time they had a dwelling of their own” Dhunn said. Her parents nudged Prakash, and so did the rest in the house.
Dhunn’s brother ‘FS’ decided to take the lead and show him places around where they lived. Dhunn encouraged them to finalize a dwelling without delay. And they did.
But this time it was without Ram – Prakash’s father.
