You cried with Hachiko. You got spooked and then laughed it off with Scooby
Doo. And you fell in love with John Grogan's incorrigible Marley. But you
have yet to meet a dog quite like Super Bu

After years of arguments on the matter, the Bera family has finally decided
to bring home a dog.


Ajay has wanted a dog since he was a child. He has fantasized about every
version of his future life around them.

His brother, Arun, would love to get a dog as much but doesn't mind not
having to clean up after one.

Ajit, their father, also wants to get a dog. He just wants to feel the love
of a dog again, like he used to when he was a child.

Barnali, Ajit's wife, loathes the idea of having a dog in the house. She
spent her childhood praying for only one thing, that she shouldn't get
married into a family that has dogs. And until now, she got her wish.

But now, Ajay has finally worn out his mother's resilience and the Beras
are bringing home a dog. Can this be just the homecoming that the dog or the
family had anticipated?

Read now and find out.

The lazy young lad who would sleep through a freaking earthquake suddenly
didn’t need anyone to wake him up. It was a special Sunday morning in

Ajay was up at five in the morning. Not once did he hit the snooze button
on the alarm clock. He did not sleep through the ringing alarm until someone
else in the house got perturbed enough to shake him awake. He heard the
alarm within the first few seconds of it going off. He woke up and switched
off the alarm, so as not to wake the rest of the family. He did not lie back
down over the scattered sheets on his bed like he usually would on any other

He got up, headed to the bathroom, freshened up, brushed his teeth, came
back out, changed into an ironed, royal blue t-shirt and his grey jeans, and
he sat down on the edge of the bed, yet to be made, posture annoyingly
better than how he usually sat, and waited. He did not have to get up that
early; there wasn’t an exam to get to, no lectures at college that he
feared he would be arriving late for, no potential girlfriend who had
invited him to meet somewhere for a breakfast date.

It was a Sunday, but Ajay was ready and all dressed up to hit the city by
5:30 in the morning. Yet, this was only the second most unusual thing about
this day, because this was also the day that the Bera family had finally
agreed to bring home a dog.
