Which Fall is Worst?

As she sat telling her story, we could see her drowned in her past.

“Although we laughed about it later but, that moment was scary for the two of us, “said Anita.

“My husband was dropping me to office on his bike when a two-wheeler hit us and pushed me off the bike. I don’t remember anything of the fall except that this was on the busy traffic road and I was in my second trimester; though the doctor assured us all was fine, we continued a restless journey until I had my little one in my arms.”She continued.

While we all sat waiting for her to continue I could see tears swelling up her eyes and then she broke the silence in the room with a mumble, "He who belittled me and has left me in this old age home. Which fall is worst I am unable to comprehend”, she concluded.
