Ramu and Sita were shocked to know,
That Ramu’s mother had escaped from her old age home,
Where they had admitted her as Sita hated her,
AS she did not want to see her face again.
Since Ramu and Sita were just then going ,
To hospital for delivery of their first child,
Ramu told her that they would go to hospital,
Get admitted there , so that the old woman cannot find them.
After Sita was admitted around night they both were shocked,
To hear the voice of the mother Of Ramu , who had come there,
And she begged Ramu to give her just one opportunity to see her grand son,
And she promised them that afterwards she would go back to her old age home.
When they were discussing and Ramu was dragging his mother from there,
Sita’s labour pain started and she told Ramu that she does not want the hag,
To see their child as she will cast evil on the child but Ramu could not,
Get his mother removed from there due to prescence of many of his friends.
A son was born to them and Ramu’s mother was in the seventh heaven ,
After she with lot of difficulty had a glimpse of her grand son.
Though Sita and Ramu was shouting at her all the time , that old mother ,
Fondled the new born baby and helped Sita in looking after him,
After two days Sita firmly told Ramu that , her mother should go out,
Otherwise she would Kill herself there itself and this was heard by that poor mother.
And that evening the new born baby of Sita disappeared and she started crying,
And the hospital informed police and their room was full of a huge crowd.
At that time Ramu’s mother told every one in loud voice , “There is no need to search for the baby,
As here he is as I had only hidden him from his mother for a little time”
Sita Cursed , “You old hag how can you ever think of separating my baby from me,
The curse of my tears would make you roll in hell for a long time to come.”
Then Ramu’s mother told, “Daughter , I knew it was a sin and I knew that you would curse me,
It is a great sin to remove the baby from his mother who carried him for ten months,
But have you ever thought that you stole away my Baby , whom I gave birth, nurtured,
And whom I love as much as my soul by putting me in old age home so that I am away from him.”
The crowd started cursing Sita and Ramu , and Ramu’s mother saw Ramu crying ,
And she told him, “My darling son do not cry and I would go to my old age home immediately.
But please understand that similar thing would happen to you and then both,
Of you would become miserable and possibly understand me much better.”
Ramu did not bother that it was the floor of the hospital.
Ana a huge crowd was seeing him with great aversion,
And that Sita was pitiably looking at him with a beseeching eyes,
And fell at the feet of his mother and told her ,
“From now on wherever you stay is my home..”
