Mrs. Singh, dressed in saree, bedecked with jewellery, was sorrounded by a fragrance.

Yes madam! coffee on the table; stocked cooler. Bar in the living room. Cook working on hot snacks.”

Singh family, one of the oldest residents in this town, always hosts an important official like collector.

Good relation with these people is important,” thought Mrs. Singh, “so much work needs be done to make this town livable.”

Madam, shall I have my lunch,”

Now? Guests are about to arrive! One day cannot eat late? Such a shirker!”

The wall clock chimed five o clock.

    1. Many people do not like house helps eating before others have eaten. Many a time they lack a basic empathy. That is what I have tried to capture. Thank you for reading.

  1. I wonder if Mrs Singh had eaten lunch? I rather suspect she had…but I’m rather surprised that her butler hadn’t found time to snatch a bite of lunch, knowing that it was such a big day! You’ve drawn the two characters nicely, Abhijit.

    1. He is not a butler in proper sense. He is a househelp who does many things. Kind of all purpose help. These kind of help are common in India. Thank you for reading.
