Baa asked me to study well, I studied well, Baa used to work and I used to talk to her, then on every birthday, she used to gift me cricket things, when I got 16 year old, do you know what she gifted me. FB shows Baa gifting him seasoned ball.
Deepak thanks and hugs Baa. He tells Dhara then when I got 17 year old, I came home and did not see Baa at home, neighbor told me that Baa came for work, I went there and saw Baa grinding chilies. I felt I got 10 years older, I got to know Baa is doing this work since many years and used to come home before I came home from school, then I understood how money came, I locked the cricket things and decided I will not play cricket, I will not let Baa grind chilly and do work, then I got work at some hotel, I worked hard, then I got accountant work, then I managed home, when I gave my gold earrings for Baa with my first earning, I felt like lifting world cup like Kapil Dev.
He says life is bigger game than cricket. Dhara asks why did you leave cricket, for Baa who raised you, shall I leave cricket for the man you don’t know. Deepak says he is nice guy, he said yes knowing you play cricket. She says yes, then he said I can’t play cricket. Deepak says I m ready to fight for you, but after 5-6 years, cricket will be gone and good proposals too, you are top class cricketer, but career of women cricketer will be maximum 10 years, but life is long, I told you what I thought, I will not force you, you think about your whole life and decide. He says when I gave you chocolate and this peppermint, you used to take this one as this stays longer, and chocolate ends soon. He goes. She gets thinking what he said.
Dhara cries seeing her medals and writes a letter. She recalls her childhood.
