All in the game.

Another Saturday at Ram's house "Priyaaaa....I am leaving" shooouts Ram as he packs his kit.

"Ram...Ram..Ram....inniki oru naal un cricketukku leave vida koodatha"

"Sorrypa..already anga groundla enakkaga ellarum waiting..enga ponaalum latea pogarennu erkanavay ellarum thitraanga..."

"Daily nee veetuku varathukkay nadu raathiri aaiduthu...weekend aana cricket velayaada odidra..enga kooda time spend panrathay illa"

"sorry chellam..intha oru vaaram poren..adutha vaarathulenthu veetta vittu velila poga maaten"

"engala vida unakku cricket mukkiyama poiduthula"

"huh..ilama..corporate tournament varuthu sonnenla..athuku thaan enga office team makkaloda practice porom"

"micha perlaam bachelor pasanga..veedu vaasal kelvi ketpaar illa..unakken intha veen velailaam"

Ram's fone rings at that very instant. "Dei...oru inningsay mudia pogthu...innum kelamabalaya neee" his friend shouts on the phone from other end.

"Ithoo vanthutenda..on the way"

"Tv odra sound Inga kekuthu..seekrama vanthu thola" the call gets disconnected.

"Chellam..kochukaatha...itho poitu itho vanthudren" Ram rushes out even before Priya could object further.

At cricket ground "dei Ramm...officeku vara mathirye groundkum vantha epdi...match aarambichi half hour aaguthu"

"Sorry machi..veetla Priya semma tension..inniki velayaada poga koodathunu 144 potutaa...adichi pudichi varathukulla podhum podhumnu aaiduthu"

"Ofcourse..husbands happya iruntha entha wifeku thaan porukkum..avanga veetla padre kashtathulenthu naaama easya escape aaidromnu avangaluku gaandu"

"office poitu varathay oru peria velai...intha trafficla nonthu noodlesaagi varappo "appaaadaa"nu iruku..nimmathia tv paakalam konja nermana apponu paathu ivanga puraanatha start paniduvanga..atha kaathu kuduthu kekalaina innoru puraanam start aaidum...intha husbands paadu romba kushtamappa"

"aduthavaaram cricket vara mudiaathu machi...innikay Priya kitta poi semmaya vaangi kattika poren...next week doubtu thaan"

"Ram...ipdi panna enna...pesama doctor unna exercise panna sollirukaru..athunala physical activitykaga cricket velayaada porennu sonna?"

"vera venaiye venaam...Priya thangai nejamavay doctor...poi solli maatinen..ivalay vesha oosi poattu konnuruva"

"seri seri...dai...toss podanum...oru rupee coin kudu"

"cheque book kondu varalye machi"

"dai...oru ruvaada"

"ipdi suddena bulk amount keta epdida"

"veri ethaatha...stumpa eduthu sorugiduven..."

After the match is over...the team takes a break under the tree shade.

"Nee mattum epidida wife kitta maatikaama every weekend matchuku vara " asked Ram to Anil.

"Ithuku oru Microsoft project planay pottu vachiruken machi...avlo peria matter. If you notice, naan ellaa weekendum varathilla. I pick and choose my matches. If I am at home, I make sure I drag my wife and kids out for some mall or any theme park. I ensure that they get to spend time out and stay hustled in the house. Oru weekend velila kootitu poitu vanthaalay they feel tired and refreshed at same time for next two weeks.  Antha gap naama use pannikanum.Oru outingku aagara selavu paathalay thala suthirum. No wife would allow outing every weekend. Aairam thaan selavu panra mathiri therinjaalum basicavay ponnunga especially wife clan are sikkana sigamanis unlike pasanga who will never ever be on the same league when it comes to home finance matters. So...LHS isikoltu RHS...I am free "

"Anil..nee saatharana Anil illa...Anil Ambanikkay business solli tharalam....."

Right at that moment Anil's phone rings. "Itho vanthutenpa...got stuck in traffic jam near supermarket. Athaan apdiye vegetables vaangitu varalamnu hopped in. Ethavathu specifica venuma chellam" Anil started walking towards his car leaving behind a stunned team.

"Theivamayy" nu gosham poattavaray everyone picked sand from the path Anil walked and applied it like viboothi ontheir forehead.
