In bliss


Jay is nothing without his wife Rhea.

Rhea, besides being a devoted wife and a loving mother of two teenagers, is the backbone of the whole household. Her home seems like a paradise on earth.

Two years back this paradise was mine…only mine; I was the soul of this family. How fast things change in this world? But I am too glad for my family which is as happy with her as it used to be with me.

Rhea my sweet little sister sacrificed her young dreams by marrying an elderly widower to fulfill her elder sister’s promises and responsibilities.
