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.
