Every time, she sent him a letter, she sent a small flower of 'bakul' for him, without fail. Her letter always brought back some special memories for Shridhar. He used to get lost in the memories with the small flower in his hand. The flower represented her. Her mild manners, her simplicity, the fragrance around her, and the chastity in her eyes along with the love every single tender thing was present in the flower. Her personality was devoid of ego. He had collected each flower from her letter. He had stored all those flowers in a small bag. Every day, he kept the bag beneath his pillow. Every letter brought a new hope for him, saying that the flower will be a lifelong partner. Sudha Murthy, has pictured this very sensitively.
