A long wait for a beautiful future

Srishanth and Aishwarya got married- just 6 months ago. Happy honeymoons, beautiful memories were cuddling their life until Sri’s visa came for his first and foremost onsite travel to South Africa. His goals are coming into a reality.


Aishwarya gave a bittersweet smile when he told this news to her. She conveyed her happiness and wished him a great career starting from this first onsite concealing her deepest agony of missing him. Even Sri couldn’t bear the anticipation of leaving his dearest wife and living abroad.

The day of travel was equally exciting as well as both of their heavy hearts sank in the deepest darkness of sorrow.

He hugged her tight and smiled at her saying, “I love you and you will always be in my thoughts on my daily routine”

She smiled and said, “Don’t worry! I won’t cry”

But both of them knew, either of them will be sleepless, weeping.

Sri went to the quiet and picturesque place of Johannesburg and started settling down into his daily chores and his office job. He worked hard that his clients and other colleagues praised him of his uphill battle. Meanwhile here, Aish also started concentrating in her career and did many meaningful achievement for her to boost her resume and recognition.


Their only source was a simple whatsapp call. They talked hours together of what is going on everyday and started sharing their love towards each other- since the absence made them to understand how deeply they are in love with each other and this sacrifice meant nothing when they saw the big picture of their future living happily.

She didn’t have any prior plans in her mind about that place, nor what she is going to do there. Her only thought was to see Sri. That only thought made her alive and breathe.

After a long 14 hour journey, she reached the destination and came in search of the face she loved the most. Even before she could see, he caught an eye of her arrival and came running and hugged her tight.

It was a huge sigh of relief to both of them.


They went to beautiful and aromatic gardens, casinos, movies, his first car driving experience with her, their first mall visit, their first safari to Pilanesberg Forests, their first shopping of groceries and a lot more to say. Even drinking a cup of coffee together made a huge sense of accomplishment to them. Many memorable and funny moments lingered into their beautiful home filled with love and happiness.


One fine day, both went for a doctor check up a few months later to see a huge surprise waiting to enter into their life. A beautiful child having the genetic characters of both Aish and Sri is going to enter into this world after nine months! They were thrilled and the moment of hearing the tiny little heartbeat cannot be forgotten by both of them in their lifetime.

After three months, with heavy heart- she waved bye with a good note of seeing him soon on her native land.

On a positive note- She is waiting for him to see soon along with her baby!
