. A BELATED CONFESSION…….
Ramakanta and Sitakanta are bosom friends from childhood.
Associated with each other from their education to livelihood
Sita joined in public service
Rama served in defence force
After got retired from service, settled in the same town where they had been brought up and born.
Far from humdrum of officialdom they have a great time now
To rejoice and spend their leisure hours
remembering the past that follows.
They had daily morning and evening walks altogether
Making merriment throughout the day they wanted whatever
One day Ramakanta reminded Sitakanta of an incident that took place in the past
About Iteeshree- their female class mate to whom Sitakanta loved her most
“Do you know Sita?” Ramakata said in choked voice.
“What?”Sitakanka wanted to know.
“Itee had written a letter to you.” Ramakanta continued-
“Wanted to deliver you through me.
But out of jealousy I didn’t handover the letter to thee
Instead I read the content of the letter and hid that underneath a shrub
In which she invited you to meet her in the park next day near the swimming club.”
His confession came as bolt from the blue !!!
Listening this Sitanatth got infuriated and lost his composure
Slapped Ramakanta’s left cheeck out of displeasure
Sitakanta said in rage, “You bitch! brute!, villain! Fetch the letter immediately from the place you had hidden”
Alas! everything is lost. The letter had been mingled into soil and the bush had been in spoil.
Only Memory remains.
