Prologue

It had been two lonely days already, since his wife had bothered to talk to him. She had just come home after the delivery of the second kid, a particularly difficult Casearean Operation & was busy chattering non stop with her mother.

She had finished her Lunch & had not bothered to ask him to join her. Ordinarily , he would not have minded this , since he was used to such behaviour both from his wife & also his in laws, This sort of behaviour was more pronounced in his wife, when in the presence of his inlaws. But what bothered him more was that his wife had not fed the kids since morning.

In the Evening, He got angry at his wife, & they exchanged some hot words. He picked up both his kids & prepared to board a taxi from the front of the
Residence. He asked his wife to join him in the taxi. His Inlaws started making threatening & Clamouring noises & some neighbours gathered around the taxi. The inlaws made it look as if he was kidnapping the babies. When one of the neighbour caught his hand , he got into a minor scuffle with the neighbour. But other neighbours came & separated them . They sorted out the matter that it was a domestic matter & not a kidnapping issue. One of the neighbour talked quietly to him & told him that he could leave in the morning, since it was already getting late. He concurred that it was so & postponed the plans for another day.

After some time, he was sitting & trying to relax in his inlaws home, his wife came & informed him that her sister had summoned the cops . shortly after that his wifes sister came along with a cop & he was taken into police custody. At the Police station, his wifes sister charged him with Demanding of Dowry (THE D FACTOR )& torturing his wife & asked the Police Inspector to keep him in the lock up.

He was asked to stand in a corner for two hours, until the next shift of Cops joined duty. The Cop in charge came & solved several domestic disputes at his own level. The Cop asked him about the charges leveled against him, i.e., The D Factor.

The cop said that although charges had been leveled against him, there was no written complaint & if he gave some chai paani, he was free to go. Otherwise, he would have to wait till the morning. He also inquired if he could order some food from the restaurant for him

He grinned at the irony of situation that while his in laws & his wife had not bothered with inquiring about the food since two days, here a unknown cop, who had only taken his custody for one night was asking him whether he was hungry ?

He took a deep breath & said, “ I am not hungry , but I do thank you for inquiring. If I eat today, I will again forget this night at the police station & the cause for it. I will again forgive my wife & In Laws. They will again take advantage of me & this story will be repeated. If I don’t eat now, I will remain hungry, & will not forget this night at the police station & will therefore not forgive. But the night is long & I am not sleepy. I can tell you the story of the D Factor, as you call it . You can advice me at the end as to what I should do or what you would have done in my situation. I will have to start the story from the beginning. If you can spare some of your valuable time, I will start the narration of my story.”
