Nikhil’s body is not good. Often suffers from illness. How much medicine did you take? Nothing is happening at all. Day by day the body is getting dry.
Nikhil’s mood has also become quite irritable. Gets angry very quickly. Screams when angry. Stays indoors all day. Can’t get out anywhere. How much more like to read books and watch TV? Friends don’t even come these days. No telephone at home. If you had a telephone, you could call someone and have a chat. It also took time.
Mother said, you can go for a walk somewhere. It is good for your body and mind will be. where to go I don’t want to go anywhere with a sick body. You can go to Sheila’s house and come back for a few days. How many times has he written to you?
I thought of going to my grandmother’s house. But will the body bear the stress of being on a train for one night? If the body worsens. Couldn’t do anything thinking this.
One day Chhotomama came to the house. He lives in Ahmedabad. Do a great job. But likes to make a lot of noise. When you come to Calcutta, go to everyone’s house. He inquired about everyone. Nikhil’s health is not good – he first came to this house after receiving this news.
Mom is very happy. Little brother came after a long time. Nikhil will also get a companion to talk to. Chhotomama said to Nikhil, why did it look like a pack? At this age will eat and run.
Mother said, what will you run? He sleeps all day! what happened to you Since when are you suffering? It’s been almost a month. Ever stomach ache. ever fever never mind
Have you seen a good doctor? Or are you taking medicine given by the doctor in the neighborhood? He is not a doctor with a hammer! How crowded is the chamber? ok I am in Kolkata. I will take you to a good doctor. Now tell me, how is your study?
Higher secondary examination after three months. Can’t study well for the body. He will be fine. you don’t think anything Mother said, will you leave now?
I will stay here tonight. I will leave tomorrow morning. This time I got only fifteen days leave. Must meet everyone.
At night, after eating and going to sleep, Chhotomama realized why Nikhil was suffering from so much illness. He said to his mother, do you sleep with your head towards the north? Mother was very surprised to hear such a question. He said, we are always in the north
sleep with head Chhotomama shook her head and said, “You didn’t do it right.” Head north means feet south. This is why Nikhil is suffering so much. I will ask him to sleep with his head towards south-east from now on. Mother entered Nikhil’s room and gave him the pillow. He said, sleep with your head on that side.
Nikhil said without understanding anything, why are you suddenly asking to sleep with your head there? Your uncle said. So I turned the pillow that way. Nikhil wants to know the reason behind this. He is in my grandmother’s house
Chhotomama barely closed her eyes. Nikhil said, did you say that you should not sleep with your head towards the north? You think that I have done something wrong. did not do wrong I just want to know, what is the reason for what you said?
You have seen Ganesha’s head like an elephant. Why this happened, you can say? When Nikhil said he didn’t know, Chhotomama said, “Hear it from me.” Uncle Shani came to see Ganesh. As soon as he saw him, Ganesha’s head flew away. What can be done then? How will Ganesha survive without a head? It was then decided that whoever is seen lying with his head towards the north, his head will be cut off and put on the body of Ganesha. No one could be seen. Finally an elephant was seen lying down. His head was cut off and attached. Now you understand why you should not sleep with your head to the north? And that is why you are suffering so much.
Nikhil just smiled. Nikhil started sleeping with his head towards south-east as per his mother’s advice. Chhotomama was very happy to hear. Nikhil’s illness did not abate. Rather, his fever increased. Getting out of bed makes you dizzy.
Chhotomama visited everyone’s house and came here again. Nikhil said, my illness has increased after hearing your words. It can’t be. In fact, to suffer a little for the sins you have committed for so long will be Mother called the doctor. After seeing the blood test report, he said, his
Malaria has occurred. The previous report was wrong. So there was no result in the treatment. Chhotomama bowed her head and listened to the doctor. Then he quickly left the house.
