"It's over—it happened—there's nothing more to say. I, Maloti Mukherji, someone's wife, and someone's mother—I did it. Did it with Jayanto. Jayanto wanted me, and I him ... How did it happen? Easy. In fact I don't know why it didn't happen before—I'm surprised at my self-restraint, at Jayanto's patience. .."
