"I am going to write the exam da. I cannot imagine missing it", she told me.
I reacted in utter puzzlement, "You cannot mean that! Surely!"
"Of course I mean it. What else can I do? The next time these papers come, I am not sure I will be in this city", she added.
I could hold off no longer. "But the exam is on your wedding day my dear", my voice rose to a shrill pitch.
She nodded sadly and said, "Right. Luckily the Muhurtam is really early. I can finish that and attend the exam at 10am."
I was speechless by this point. After a few seconds spent in swallowing my disbelief, I said, "All the best lady!"
I still cannot believe that she is going to write an exam on her wedding. Maybe she will change her mind before June. Maybe she won't. Maybe the problem is my single track antique mind :)
