Our decisions define us and our life is full of them. 

In this short story, Lata goes to a village fair with her husband, Ramesh, and has to decide 
- whether to buy old cheap bangles or try some new and costly ones
- whether to drink juice or eat popular food items
- whether to buy cheapest vermillion available in the village fair or not
and lastly, 
- whether to buy the toy car which his son, Bannu, has asked last year. 

She has to take decision keeping in mind the debt of village's grocery shopkeeper. 
Will she sacrifice happiness in order to achieve her ambition? 
And most importantly: is sacrifice worth the ambition?

I hope this story will throw light on tough decisions parents make for their children and how universal their sacrifices are.
