'Oh, she's coming up,' he thought indignantly. 'How she craves for news and gathers the same as a rag picker would rubbish from all corners!"

"What writes your father Pathrudugaru?"

"Usual stuff," he replied dryly. "We're okay, are you okay?"

"It's time you got married," she said zeroing on the subject matter of his father's letter, as if on cue.

"There's a match it seems," he replied reflexively.

"One should get married when still young," she said, and added as though to justify her plain features. "But do remember the old saying; anxiety accompanies a beautiful wife as she attracts all and sundry."

Having given him a bit of her mind, she left abruptly, as though she were late already for airing the news.

Sathyam read the appetizing portion of his father's letter once again.

'We all feel there is a suitable match for you. The girl is Ramaiahgaru's youngest daughter. He works at the Head Post Office here, and is my friend's colleague. We are all impressed with their family and our astrologer says both your horoscopes match to the tee. Moreover, the girl is very beautiful. If you like her, I would be done with my duty. After all, it's time you got married. Take leave for a week and come as early as you can. Your mother wants you to spend some time with us.'

'Moreover, the girl is very beautiful,' he read aloud; and repeated again, as an encore to his ears. After all, he was particular that his wife should be a beauty; and made it clear to his parents.
