Part 5

CHAPTER-FIVE: QUONDAM LOVER-SHYAMALA

Crabbed age and youth cannot live together, youth is full of pleasure; age is full of care.” William Shakespeare.

Haplessly Banu could not enjoy the pleasures of youth because of her family situation. When her mother gave birth to her, she died during her parturition and his father met with an accident and died on the spot. So her paternal uncle took care of her but her aunt inflicted her perdition from her childhood. Sympathized on seeing her plight and adversity which joined together, Ramana comforted her and helped her financially secretly. (I leave it to the readers to imagine how Banu might have been inflicted in the hands of cruel lady)

On a fateful day, Banu, unable to endure the insulting words which‘re poisonous arrows darted from her aunt, decided to commit suicide and lurked at the dusk. Her aunt, being a shrew, was notorious throughout the village and Ramana came to know the bickering and guessed what Banu would do next. As per his guess, she lurked towards the seashore where he caught her before drowning into the sea.

“Why did you save my life? I am born to suffer throughout my life. I feel solace by death but you rescued me to make me suffer in the hands of cruel lady again. Again I have to delve into hell….” Banu sobbed and wept bitterly.

“Every cloud has a silver lining, Banu. The period of adversity is over; believe my words. Your devil lady is going to become a dependent on you from tomorrow. I can’t say more than this. Come with me.” Ramana comforted her.

As she was at the zenith of despondency, Banu thought that he comforted to soothe her mental anguish.

Ramana advised her:” Banu, I request you to go to the temple dedicated to Lord Muruga and pray sincerely. After an hour, go home. A miracle will welcome you.”

After an hour, Banu returned home where she was told that her aunt met with an accident and admitted in the Government hospital for treatment.

Banu hied to the G.H. to see her aunt where her aunt was lying on the bed crying out of pain and found a nurse scolding her.
