here is another husband,
publishing a letter to his beloved.
i sometimes lie to you about the way your hair looks, but really,
does a single naughty strand define your charm?
i pretend to take interest in tv serials. the truth is i hate that 'rona dhona', but whatever makes you happy, makes me happy.
when pious swara reveals the true colours of her evil sister ragni, i lie to you that i want to watch the
score of the match this is so that i can see the irritated and cute look on your face.
i lie that i need to tie your old chunni around my head when i get a headache. i actually can't throw is away because you wore it the first time we met.
i lie to you about your driving. you are a bad driver!
i mock getting angry with you when you get late from work, inside i'm really anxious and worried about your safety.
i sometimes lie to you what i talk to our children about. we have some secrets, and they will never be revealed to you, or we will be killed!
i lie about not being tired. i get tired, but when you ask me for something in your sweet voice, it's impossible for me to say no.
i lie to you about my favourite ice cream flavour, so that when we get it, we can eat together.
i lie that i don't notice smiles of other women, but truly i don't care.
the biggest lie i've told you is that i don't miss you.
i miss you all the time.
don't all husbands lie to their wives sometime or the other?
every lie is a mischief made in the name of love.
I LOVE YOU, MY PRECIOUS WIFE PUSHPLATA.
