*”*”*”*”*”*”*(EPISODE – 10)*”*”*”*”*”*”*
During Nineth month of Ragini’s pregnancy…,
Ragini : Laksh, I feel sorry for you!! The past eight months have been very hard for you. I rarely cooked and you stopped eating dinner, while your breakfast was just a juice, you lost 20 kg. I have to cook today. I’ll make a surprise for you. I’ll cut vegetables and will also prepare rotis, but would you please prepare the salad for us???
Laksh : (open mouth)…..
Ragini : Do you think I’ll deliver the baby naturally or will there be a C-section?? You know, most of my pregnant friends had a cesarean. Maybe my doctor will deliver it naturally as she is a female doctor.
Laksh : Ah yup, but the doctor’s gender doesn’t affect the type of delivery.
Ragini : Anyway, I prepared two suite cases for the baby and me.
Ragini : (in pain) OHHH, HELP! Mom, Father, Brother, Sister, Uncles, Aunts, United Nations, Indian people, the Universe, any one!! Help me please, I’m in pain!!
Ragini : Laksh, I’m in pain, tell that doctor to give me any painkiller. I can’t handle it any more. I feel weak. Promise me if anything happens to me, never ever get married again!! Don’t give our baby a stepmother. Please, promise me!! Please….
Laksh : Relax Ragini, You’ll be fine, and everything will be OK. It happens to all women, you’re not the first one. Just a few minutes from now, and you’ll hold in your arms a sweet baby girl.
Something strikes to Ragini’s mind and she said..
Ragini : Did you bring a video camera with you? Don’t take any shots from my left-hand side, my right side is more photogenic!! Choose good angles for the shots, I want to look pretty in the video. Take shots while I’m not screaming and before my face appears in the video screen, just tell me to smile.
Laksh : Ragini, We’re recording the birth of our baby, not making a movie!! You’ll be in the operation room, and you won’t care about anything of that sort.
Ragini : Labor hurts. I’m crazy and stupid, I don’t want to get pregnant again. This is the first and last time. If anyone had told me about that pain, I would’ve never thought about marriage.
Ragini : Laksh, what is the gender of the baby??
Laksh : What? The baby is a girl. We knew that a long time ago.
Ragini : Yipeeee.., I thought the doctor would change her mind. Is she beautiful??
Laksh : (Teasing her) Who, the doctor? Yes, very.
Ragini said while giving death glare to Laksh..
Ragini : Laksh, I mean the baby.
Laksh gulps in afear and said..
Laksh : Oh!! yes, she’s very, very pretty.
Ragini : OK, next time we’ll have a baby boy. Now tell them I want to hold her.
Laksh : (in amazement) Next time?? You just said.. You were.. What happened so sudden?
Laksh : (mumbling)ohhhh..!! Women! Women! Women! No one could able to understand them.
