His morning started like such incident. The whole was areas infected by mosquitto. It was basic problem here. Local government took action extricate it.fogging and pest control all over chawl every week.it also failed.
His mother was bed stricken since two years.he used to pay rent every month.wife didn't have permission for job. Because they just got newly married.in meagre income, it was difficult to run family. every situation has solution; but it had not.
The disease and Illness it did not have apply theory and method. He lived into very critical situation. He worked as sales executive in train marketing company. Whatever he sold in train.

He got tired that day.his selling average was crossed the mountain.He went late night home.took left turn and caught way to home, in that time he stopped at near sheetal medical at ganesh chowk.he purchased body lotion to apply over body to save from mosquito bite.It was late 11p.m. in the night,when reached at home. the street dogs was barking near chawl gate, dogs sniffed him and confirmed his existence of that area person, they left moving his tails.
When he came night late, home door was slightly ajar, family half asleep.bed stricken old woman sensed his present. he got refreshed himself.had dinner finished.then laid on spreaded blanket near wife.he put out light, except ultrasound machine put on.a sound emerged from it was only sense by insect.human could not sense and hear.he slowly closed his eye, took a big sigh and slept.
Suddenly a sound of a wailing came from the cot.on it laid his mother, who had been bed stricken since last 2yrs.she was caressed by family.she would feed by family and would cleansed by family.everything done on cot.she could not move anyhow.
He got up by hearing moaning sound suddenly.she pointing at kitchenside. indicated at something.he understood her indication.he brought in glass water.her throat was thirsty.she drank water in one gulp.he guessed that his old mother could not see tomorrow day anyhow.he was sad by his guess.he was feeding her spoon by spoon water.He sat beside her for a few minute. he moved his finger over her forehead. He confirmed that her death come near. He did not wake anybody….thought that next early morning when day broke, he would touch news to first his wife,after water filling was done.
Once again he, took a deep sigh and looked at toward that machine,he purchased in train.He did not feel mosquito bite.he never got bite rash over his body part.he confirmed that machine was working well.its effect was growing rapidly.that night he delved into dream.fast got asleep on the bed.
