When I was a little girl

A Telugu film called 'Annamayya'

had caught my imagination.

The film was about the life

of Tallapaka Annamacharya.

A saint who lived

about 600 years ago.

I used to watch the film

with my grandfather,

everytime it aired on TV.

There is a scene in the film,

in which one of the saint's disciples,

sing one of his teachers' songs.

"The everyday life is merely a play"

My grandfather's eyes always

welled up, whenever this song played.

And at this point,

I always watched my grandfather

and lost track of the film.

So, I asked my father one day

to tell me, what the song meant

and he told me

"To be born is the truth."

"To be dead is the truth."

"Everything in between

is just a play."

I was 14 years old, when I truly

began to understand what that meant.

My thoughts began to change.

I found comfort in thinking

that the 'Play' had a director,

-who had plans for me.

-Excuse me?

Do you have a pregnancy test kit?

Four weeks back, as I sat

there holding my husband's hand.

It seemed to me, like he had found a

peaceful space between life and death.

And the song kept playing in my head.

"To be born is the truth."

"To be dead is the truth."

"And everything in between

is just a play."

She is not dead.

She is still alive.

I am not that to her,

what she is to me.

She refuses to remember me.

She refuses to see me.

She clamps her nose, like she refuses

to breathe the same air as me.

Fate is not kind.

"Feathers are not enough."

"Feathers are not enough."

"Birds need a sky to fly."

"Birds need a sky to fly."

Hey, you.

Concentrate.

OK.

"Feathers are not enough."

"Feathers are not enough."

"Birds need a sky to fly."

"Birds need a sky"

"To fly."

"To fly."

"High in the sky."

"High in the sky."

"Legs are not enough."

"Legs are not enough."

I heard you are teaching kids.

-You have a very good voice.

-Thank you, sir.

Why don't you audition

for these TV shows?

I wish I could.

But then...

So, what do you do for a living?

-Are you blind?

-What, dude?

Get lost, man!

For a living,

I work in sales and marketing, sir.

We mostly deal

with herbal products.

Thank you.

And marketing as a career,

has its own risks.

Yes, of course.

Even I was into sales

and marketing, when I was younger.

That's amazing, sir!

People at home weren't too happy.

So, I became a teacher later.

Two cups of coffee, please.

And then I realized, that teaching

wasn't too different from marketing.

My father always told me,

"Teaching is the most noble profession."

But he didn't like it,

when I quit my engineering job

to become a Montessori teacher.

We'll be late!

"We'll be late!"

My name is Akhila.

And this is my husband, Pramod.

The fact that we have been

married for three years,

and still don't have kids, is

the trending topic in our families.

Children.

All fell down.

What?

What?

A for apple.

What is D?

Let us see who builds

the biggest house.

What is that?

Hello, Dad?

I am on my way to the hospital.

I'll call you once I get back.

OK.

Children and family.

Before these thoughts

took over my life.

I had a dream of my own.

I wanted to be a storyteller.

Give me that novel.

A novelist.

But it remained a dream.

I haven't completed

a single story that I started.

It's not just about

having a dream, is it?

Deep down, I am angry with myself

for not working hard enough.

A lot of frustration.

-What took you so long?

-I was stuck in traffic.

Contrary to what you expected,

her reports look absolutely fine.

But, before we conduct further tests.

I would recommend,
