It was becoming a routine for both Shukumar and Shoba. While Shoba was out at work, Shukumar stayed in the house. It was like this for quite some time.
Whenever Shukumar would try to remember that day, a clear memory of a red car would always appear in his mind. It was always the little things he would remember.
It happened 6 months ago in September. Shukumar didn't want to go but Shoba insisted that he should attend the conference. She told him not to worry and that she had everything under control.

Shukumar imagined a day when he would be driving with his wife and child beside him. He had been anxious about the memory before due to still being a student at thirty-five. But that morning, he welcomed the image for the first time.
While Shukumar was at a conference in Baltimore, Shoba went into labor, three weeks before her due date.
Shukumar received a call from the hospital that day. He was worried and nervous while he answered the call. He thought about Shoba and their baby.
