The light turned red of the second floor OT at the Swami Vivekananda Polyclinic. With every passing moment her heart sank, thoughts crumbled and dreams shattered. Things were going all smooth for Raj and Sneha, a happily married couple with a girl child Smriti until the dreaded disclosure. 

Raj was an entrepreneur who had his hands laid out on many ventures and was making high fortunes because of his exceptional intelligentsia and energetic hard-work. Sneha was an investment banker with a multinational company prior to giving it completely to Smriti care. With few hiccups in any other marriage life things were turning out to be all together pleasant till an hour back. 

Raj life had only two passions, making high fortunes and loving his family unconditionally. Sneha equally loved Raj with utmost devotion and cared for Raj as her second child beside Smriti. Raj never asked Sneha about her past and took her as she was. Sneha too forgetting all about her past devoted her complete life to her small family.

But, her past was waiting to haunt her present. Sneha while being an investment banker in Tokyo was in a relationship with a colleague. Investment banker life involves uneasy working hours, long schedules and high work pressure. Away from her home with none for emotional support she looked to him at times of joy and sorrow. To ease out her mood now and then she got into physical relationship with her boyfriend. Sneha’s parents were against her relationship and when deserted by her boyfriend she succumbed to her family pressure of marrying Raj. 

Present Day:

Raj was working in his office attached to his house when he received a notification about a new mail from an unknown mailer id. Taking it to be a customer query mail he clicked the notification. The mail contained a video of her wife in sexually explicit act with someone unknown to him. 

Raj couldn’t believe his eyes, in dismal and pain he went straight towards her wife who was in the kitchen at the other side of the house. On his way to Sneha his legs slipped through the stairs while his mind was preoccupied with hundred mutinies. Down to ground with thousand wounds Raj only words that he could utter were “Why Sneha”?

It’s been an hour since the OT light has turned RED.
