“Hello, ma?” She heard only this and ran towards the car screaming in joyful excitement. While driving, she congratulated her husband back home.

An hour later.

Room #55, she thrust open the door only to see a grim faced son-in-law lamenting inconsolably. The collection of new-born essentials, Coconut Prasad, Flowers went thud on the floor.
