This is somewhat long story but very heart touching :
Piya married Hitesh this day. At the end of the wedding party, Piya's
mother gave her a newly opened bank saving passbook With Rs.1000 deposit
amount. She said: Piya, take this passbook. Keep it as a record of your
marriage life. When there's something happy and memorable happened in
your new life, put some money in. Write down what it's about next to the
Piya shared this with Hitesh when getting home. They
both thought it was a great idea and were anxious to know when the
second deposit can be made.
This was what they did after certain time: - 7 Feb: Rs.100, first birthday celebration for Hitesh after marriage - 1 Mar: Rs.300, salary raise for Piya - 20 Mar: Rs.200, vacation trip to Bali
.... and so on...
However, after years, they started fighting and arguing for trivial
things. They didn't talk much. They regretted that they had married the
most nasty people in the world.... no more love... One day Piya talked
to her Mother: 'Mom, we can't stand it anymore.
We agree to divorce. I can't imagine how I decided to marry this guy!!!'
Mother: 'Sure, girl, that's no big deal. But before that, do one thing
first. Remember the saving passbook I gave you on your wedding day? Take
out all money and spend it first. You shouldn't keep any record of such
a poor marriage.'
Piya thought it was true. So she went to
the bank, waiting at the queue and planning to cancel the account. While
she was waiting, she took a look at the passbook record. She looked,
and looked, and looked. Then the memory of all the previous joy and
happiness just came up her mind. Her eyes were then filled with tears.
She left and went home. When she was home, she handed the passbook to
Hitesh, asked him to spend the money before getting divorce.
The next day, Hitesh gave the passbook back to Piya.
She found a new deposit of Rs.5000. And a line next to the record: 'This is the day I notice how much I've loved you thru out all these years. How much happiness you've brought me.' They hugged and cried, putting the passbook back to the safe. "Life is about correcting mistakes."
