Her Regret

Jaibala/ June 23, 2014/ Short Stories

She was silent as her husband handed over the keys to the officials. They tried everything the courts, the media, the people; nothing could help them now.


She had wanted to warn him not to spend his life savings and hopes on legal uncertainty. A house in the suburbs wasn’t a bad idea. She did not; Speaking on financial matters was a big taboo for a lady who hadn’t even completed her matriculation.


As she watched her home being taken away from her today, she regretted not having spoken then. She rued the fact that regret could not bring comfort.
