Pravrajika Bharatiprana:

Our carriage arrived a little later and we took our leave. Mother pressed us to come again. We went again. Mother was resting on a mat spread upon a cot... They began to talk about a certain young woman, and Mother said, "See, now she won't live in her father-in-law's house and has come here. She doesn't like her husband because he has a dark complexion. What! You mean you won't have him just because he is dark! After all, he is your husband. I don't understand this sort of girl.

"Then again, I hear his character is not very good; that's also another reason for her unwillingness to go to him. What does that matter? He has never neglected you. Anyway, you are married to him! Well, I don't understand all this. What ever will people say! Let her do what she likes."

When we took our leave, I said, "We are going now, Mother." And the Mother said, "You must not say 'We are going', say, 'We shall come again.' (That is what Bengalis say courteously when leaving). Come whenever you have time, my child."
