Me Shruti ne jara rokava isharo karyo. Hu hath ma raheli 2-3 notebooks eni aagad mukata bolyo,

          “ Aa mari accounts ni notes chhe. Ane kyay pan kai help ni jaroor hoy to kaheje. Ok??”

Tene shikhavata sikhavata mare pan aagla varshna account nu revision thai gayu.  2 week pacchi enu paper hatu. Result aavyu ne e pass thai gai. Ek divas mari notes mane pachhi aapva aavi tyare me tene majak ma puchhyu,

Me teni baju ma betheli Vandana ne ishara thi puchhyu ke shu thayu chhe? to e javab aapta boli, “ Aa subject jara aghro lage chhe. Kalni rade chhe ke mane kai samjatu nathi. Have tu j samjav aane.” Kaheta e potani jagyae thi ubhi thai gai ane mane besva kahyu. Hu tya betho. Mari books kadhi bench par mukata bolyo, “ Bol..shu nathi samjatu?”

          E radta radta boli, “ Badhu j nathi samjatu.”

          Mane shok lagyo pan potani jat par kabu rakhta me tene kahyu, “ Ok… pahela tu radvanu bandh kar. Hu badhu j samjavish.” Me Vandana same jota puchhyu, “ Tamare hostel kyare pohanchvanu chhe?”

          “ Game tyare jaisu to chalse. Madam ne kahi desu ke revision chaltu hatu etle late thai gayu. Ane hu baju na class ma maru vanchu chhu.” Kaheta e tya thi potani books lai baju na class ma jati rahi.
