Her husband Jayesh was sympathetic. He did not want Supriya to join back company with long working hours and commuting daily for two hours. Initial few days, Supriya was happy, relaxed. Her son Sakun was in class XI last two years of school,career-shaping years. She was glad to be with him. They have savings, but not enough to manage the luxuries.
Supriya skimmed her personal expenses. Few days passed Supriya realized she does not have much work after dropping Sakun to school. Sakun comes back after three-fourth of the day is over.
