“Are you eating well?”, mother asked on phone.

“Yes mom….”, she replied as she tore another packet of Maggie noodles.
“It’s a big city, you’re taking good care of yourself right?”

“Yes mom…” she said reassuringly as she hung on the door of a crowded train back from work.
“Have you made any friends yet dear?”
“Yes mumma…” she said tiredly as she poked “talking tom” on her cellphone and stared at his reaction with a pissed off face.
“Beta, are you satisfied with your job?”
“Ho g mummt………”she replied tiredly

 as she created another excel file with her monotonous data entry work.
Another day,

full of lies…

and people thought mother was the only one who cared.
