Singhania Mansion

Mumbai

Sanjana's POV:

Tommorrow is Holi (an Indian festival of evoking spring, a festival of colours) and there is not even a single indication that the Singhania family is going to celebrate Holi. 

Is not it a custom for rich families to throw Holi Party? 

I have seen the news of extravagant parties thrown by most influential families of country. Akshay Singhania have a habit of being best at everything so why there is no arrangement or anything like that?

There is something which I am missing. Let us find out what it is?

I left the kitchen and came into living room where Ma, Harsheen Chachi and Milapriya Bhabhi were having snack.

"Ma, Can I ask something ?" I said after taking a seat.

"Yes Sanjana, poocho na (Ask away?)" She said while warmly smiling.

"Are we not going to have a Holi Party or celebrate it?" I asked.

"There will be no party but we will celebrate, there will be a small puja ( homage) and then we will celebrate Holi by applying Tilak to each other and you can make Gujiya (an Indian sweet) and Thandai (an Indian drink)."

"Ma, Why such dull celebration? Even back at home there used to be a extravagant party with music, bhaang, gulal and everything." I questioned.

"Well, your husband does not like all this drama." This time Milapriya bhabhi teasingly replied.

"What? Just because he does not like, whole family does not celebrate?" I question shocked.

"We do celebrate just not with extravaganzce and yes, we don't celebrate because he does not like to involve. He have done so much for whole family, we can sacrifice a little bit." Answered Harsheen Chachi.

He has indeed his family's trust, love and support with him in abundance.

"If he agrees, then can we celebrate in my style?" I asked after a bit.

"Yes, Of course. Make him agree to join in our celebration and we will all party but I am telling you, it is not gonna be easy to make him agree." Ma replied.

"Leave that on me Ma, this time we gonna have a big party for holi." I replied smiling.

Akshay is at his home office. So, I decided to talk to him. I knocked and entered when he permitted.

Alex, his secretary Jessica and one other man I did not recognise was with him.

"I am so sorry to disturb. I was not aware a meeting is going on. I am sorry. I will come later." I apologised and turned to left.

"I am done with the meeting. You wanted something?" Akshay questioned without lifting his head from file while all other packed to leave.

"Yeah, I wanted your permission for something." I started with sweet talk.

"Granted." He muttered and kept readibn his file.

"But you did not even know for what I am taking your permission." I confusingly murmured.

"You want permission for Holi Celebration and you have it." He muttered a little annoyed.

"Why do you think Sanjana that I don't know what goes in my family?" He asked raising his brow when I did not answer he continued " I know why my family does not celebrate Holi because I don't like all this nuisance, they respect my wishes. I have never asked them to not celebrate. If they want they can."
