Cutting Chai with Bhawana Somaaya - Day 219

Jail Diary 19
29.10.2013, Mumbai   

Sanjay has requested the authorities for a brief break from his penalty in jail to address to his medical ailments and taking into consideration his good conduct the application is under progress. Sanjay does not want to pin high hopes on it in case he is not granted leave. Every year during Navratri Manyata observes a Mata ki Chowki for the Supreme Goddess and Sanjay hopes for the sake of the family he will be home on the auspicious day. Manyata has faith that the Goddess she has worshipped all her life will not let her down. She has faith that this Navratri she and her children will welcome the Goddess home with Sanjay by her side.

Their prayers are answered. Sanjay Dutt is granted parole. Manyata is delighted and begins preparation for Sanjay’s homecoming. Sanjay is so happy that he can hardly sleep out of excitement. He is counting hours by the day and stars by the night, finally comes the dawn when he will walk out of the cell into the open sky.
