Milan (A Wedding Story)
by Simi K. Rao
When a daughter turns marriageable age, what should a responsible father do?
Easy--wed her to the most suitable boy who comes knocking on their door. Jai Bharadwaj, Mili's father and owner of The Serenity Tea Estate in the idyllic Nilgiris would've probably liked to do the same, but being who he was, he had to ask her first.
But what would Mili say?
