A conversation in the car:
Me: I think it's time Baba got over this peculiar guilt he feels towards you.
Vicky: What guilt?
Me: Oh, he feels that you didn't get anything when we got married, that I got all the jewellery and the trousseau and you only got the Mac and some model cars, even Ally* was secondhand and mine... I don't know why he persists with this because, really, he didn't get anything either when he got married and he's always been fine with that... Besides, you got me.
V: Maybe that's where the guilt arises.
*Ally is our car, a blue Alto I bought off Baba just before my marriage.
