Things started running evenly after that. I was in class 9 at that time and my sister in class 7. Though initially we faced problems without parents in the house, gradually we learnt to cope with it and our landlady also helped us a lot. Days passed by smoothly and gradually I completed my Hons in Comp Science and then did my MCA. I initially wanted to get admitted in the college beside my mom’s shop but she was strictly against it. According to her students of that college were all spoilt brats. They smooch in the open, girls smoke and all other filthy things happen. So it was not suitable for me. I got the point and didn’t want to miss my part of the fun either staying in front of my mom’s eyes so I got admitted in another college. I got placed after my MCA and went to Bangalore and joined my new company. In the meantime my sister did her B.A and then did some airhostess course and joined an airline crew. Then after a lot of persuasion from me and my sister mom stopped working.
Initially I lived as a paying guest with my 2 batch mates but after training both of them got transferred to other cities. I gradually got to know people of my projects and as is the proverb birds of same kind flock together I soon moved with a group of three other Bengali guys one a senior from my college. They were all 3 yrs experienced and one of them Mohit was from the college beside my mom’s shop. That college didn’t have a hostel so he along with some other guys stayed at a rented flat near the college. He seemed like a total spoilt brat. He spent money like water and use to drink every evening and visited brothels every weekend. I didn’t like his spend theft nature and lived much simpler than the rest of the guys and sent home money every month. Rest of all the guys Mohit understood my monetary situation first and became very careful towards me. He became like an elder brother towards me and soon we developed a very good rapport.
