At 48 years he was not very young but was not old either. The back pain also made his sex life almost non existent. For his wife Padma aged 44 years, Krishnan's back pain was a relief as she could not be disturbed during the nights or in the early mornings for sex. For her, bringing up her only son Kumar for the past 24 years was itself a full fledged commitment which she did with aplomb. Kumar got married eight months back and he is an IT professional. The daughter-in-law Ramya stayed at home and kept herself busy by dabbling in vocational courses like Music, Painting etc. Coming from a small town (Palghat in Kerala) she was loving the city of Chennai for its buzzing environment and the beaches and malls filled her with excitement.
Kumar and Ramya were quite happy and had a decent sex life. Ramya was brought up in an environment wherein it was an unwritten rule that the husband was considered the master of the house and the in-laws should be respected at all times. Her parents were quite strict and she was brought up as a typical middle class aspirational girl. Kumar was smitten by her fair skin, big eyes and thick lips. Though Padma had reservations on Ramya's looks, Kumar was quite happy and when he met her, he quickly said that she liked her. Ramya felt happy that Kumar's decision was very fast instead of the usual "please give us two/three days to comeback". Ramya's parents gave her loads of advice and she in turn took it in a very positive angle and decided to be a good daughter-in-law.
Padma slowly warmed up to Ramya and was very happy that after her coming she could get out of the house for a few hours and spend her time with friends and relatives.
But with Krishnan's back pain, Padma was forced to cut down her outdoor visits and the visits were more for hospitals, clinics and diagnostic centres. Krishnan had the habit of exaggerating the pain and finally many of the doctors suggested surgery for him. Though he was afraid, Krishnan was more in favour to get surgery down at a leading hospital in Coimbatore. A chance meeting with a childhood friend of Krishnan, who was a leading physician changed everything. His friend gave him enough reasons why surgery is not the right option, but getting treatment through a combination of Yoga, Ayurveda and diet. He also suggested a place near Palghat where a famous vaid was available and who has done wonders for patients with such ailment.
Padma, Kumar and Ramya wanted Krishnan to give a shot at this and if things do not improve in a month's time, the surgery option could be considered. Though inwardly relieved Krishnan made such a fuss and ultimately consented saying he is doing so to make them happy. Krishnan applied for three months leave which was also granted.
Ramya spoke to her parents and it was decided that all of them will go to her parent's place and then Kumar and Ramya will return after a few days of stay there. Ramya's parents were overjoyed and they made all the arrangements. Krishnan's visit to the vaid went of well and after the second day, the vaid suggested breathing, bending exercise followed with oil massage along the spine region by applying pressure with the thumbs in a linear motion starting from the neck region to the end of the spine. He said he will depute his assistant who will come to their place and explain the things.
Krishnan's in-laws were very happy that everything will be done at home itself. The next day the vaid's assistant came. He was a twenty year old young man and he demonstrated the exercise and made Krishnan do it. Kumar, Padma and Ramya were watching. He then made Krishnan lie on down on his stomach and gave Ramya a bottle of oil and asked her to get about 15 ml of the oil mixed with 50 ml of coconut oil and warm the mixture. He instructed that the oil should be heated in a clean brass vessel and the temperature should be bearable and not too hot. Ramya went to the kitchen to get it done. In the meanwhile Kumar excused himself and went out for his morning walk.In the meanwhile, the young vaid asked Padma to learn how to press the spinal area with thumb and how the movement has to be measured while moving from the top to the bottom. He did couple of demonstrations all the while enquiring with Krishnan how he was feeling. Krishnan said he got a tingling sensation when the thumbs were were applying pressure and was able to sense their movement. He asked Krishnan to relax himself. He then asked Padma whether she would like to try and get see whether she will be able to do it well. Padma who was wearing the sari, sat down besides Krishnan and started to knead the spine with her thumbs. The young vaid was asking Krishnan how he was feeling. Krishnan said though he was able to feel Padma's hand movement, he did not feel the pressure. The young vaid sat on the other side of Krishnan and was facing Padma. He then did a quick stroke again, Krishnan gave a moan and said he could feel the pressure. He then told Padma how to hold the thumb and again do the message. Krishnan said he did not get the tingling sensation. The young vaid quickly went and sat on his hind legs near Padma and took her hands on his and said "Amma, I will teach you, please remove the gold bangles. I will apply pressure on the top of your thumb and we will get Sir's opinion whether he feels okay?". Saying this he took her hands in his, held her two thumbs and made the massage pattern. Krishnan gave a moan indicating that the pressure was right. Ramya then walked in with the oil in a brass vessel. The vaid got up and took the oil. He rubbed them in his palms and then made the massage with his thumb again. Krishnan felt very relaxed, he was almost drowsy. Ramya excused herself and went to get the breakfast ready. The young vaid told Padma to take some oil her palm apply it on Krishnan's spinal area and do the massage with her thumbs. She did not get it right again. The young vaid sat behind her, and then held her hands and made the motion. Krishnan moaned again.
Padma was so concentrated on her work, she did not notice her pallu had slipped and the young vaid was bringing her hands closer. She was touching the sides of her breasts with her elbow and upper arm and it was making her breasts jut out. Since Krishnan was feeling good, he was about to sleep. The vaid kept Padma's hand in his and was almost embracing her while making her repeat the massage again and again. Padma was also suddenly feeling that her breasts were tingling with pleasurable sensation and her bosom was heaving and She had a feeling of suffocated. The vaid moved his arm to her forearm, thereby making Padma apply the right pressure. His forearm was touching her breast and when she was massaging Krishnan's spine, the young vaid's arm was crushing her breasts. She was feeling sweaty and her pussy was tingling. After fifteen strokes or so, she cummed and the vaid feeling the sudden tremor in her hands and back quickly got up and said that is enough for the day, loudly. Krishnan was snoring and the Vaid then told Padma please give him a bath after one hour in warm water. He refused to have food and said to Padma and Ramya that he will be coming for two more days and after that they have to do the massage themselves. Padma did not even have the energy to acknowledge and she desperately rushed to the bathroom to wash herself.
