Gurpreet Singh, known by his nickname Happy , was dear to all the villagers because of his generosity.
Now having moved from a small village of Punjab , India to the big town Livingston of New Jersey , Gurpreet Singh has turned into Garry. The turban has disappeared, the long oiled hair turned into short n styled gel ones.
The big city’s dazzle has taught him to make many faces , officeface, partyface, streetface but the original Happyface is lost somewhere. His every face means business now.
As he is busy reading Business Times and planning for new investments , the phone starts vibrating with a call from someone Manpreet Singh . Garry thinks a little before sliding his hand but when he does, hears a teary choked voice in punjabi from the other side ” Happy Veer , Bebe Rab nu pyari ho gayi ” (Brother, Our Mom is no more in this world ) , with the echoing crying sounds of many in the background .
Wearing a warm coat , Garry answers cold heartedly ” O I see , Did she write a will ? When is the probate ?” & he again focusses on the TISE in the newspaper.
