Krish : Rajni I love to play with you more .
Rajni : Krish don’t forget that now you are a dad also .

Rajni get back from her memories. A tear drop from her eyes fell on the album.
Rajni wiped her tears.
Rajni : I am sorry Krish. I will never cry before you .
Karan : Mom!!
Rajni quickly closed the album
Rajni : Haan beta
Karan : Mom today is parent’s meeting. You forgot it ?
Rajni : No beta . I am coming . Let’s go
Rajni meets Karan’s class teacher
Class teacher : I must say Rajni ji your son is good in studies. He scored 90% in the mid term exams. But what surprising me is he never smiles. I mean if we gives a compliment he never responds it by saying a Thank you. And I think apart from studies nothing is in his mind. It’s good that children are good at studies. But they should be lively also. Studies alone don’t makes a person’s growth in mental ways. May be you are alone taking care off everything and …..
Rajni : You don’t need to be hesitant to tell anything Mam. I can understand . I can’t bear the loss of my husband Krish. If he was with me then things would have been better.
Class teacher : What is troubling this little kid is hard to understand .
Meanwhile an attendor comes and he was tensed.
Attendor : Mam , woh Karan
Rajni : What happened to Karan ?
Attendor : He was drowned inside the pool. But luckily he got saved by Shlok Sir.
Rajni : What ?
All rushed at the garden area . Rajni saw Karan . She hugged him and her eyes went teary.
Rajni : Beta tum theek ho naa ? Why you went near this pool ?
Shlok : He is fine. What surprised me is he doesn’t knows swimming. He intentionally went inside this pool and even after drowning also he didn’t screamed for help. I was walking through this area and suddenly my eyes find him. Aap!!
Rajni : I am his mother, Rajni.
Shlok : I am Shlok, I teaches Mathematics to the U.P. section in this school.
Rajni : Sir thank you for saving my son.
Shlok : Please take care off him well.
Rajni nodded her head.
Next day at the school
It was sports day in the school. There was no classes for students. Shlok find Karan sitting at the bench eating a chocolate
Shlok : Will you give me one chocolate beta ?
Karan : Why should I give you ?These are given by my Mom. Aap apne Mom se poochiye
Shlok : Beta , why you are not coming at the ground ?
Karan : I am not participating in any item, why should I ?
Shlok : Fine !! Beta yesterday I saved you . You have to tell me why you went inside that pool ?
Karan : I went there to meet my Dad. But you stopped me .
Shlok : What ?
AN : This is actually an adaptation of an old Malayalam movie “Pani theeratha Veedu ” which featured Prem Nazeer and Nandita Bose as leads [Ashlok] with Prakash [Krish] . This is my and my mom’s favourite movie too. I have put some sort of changes to that one here according to characters.. I dedicate this to Jasmine Rahul who wished to read Ashlok story from me.
