Amazing author, beautifully written story.
A short legend: Aai is a Marathi word for Mom and Baba means Dad.

You know you’re secretly relieved, her voice of reason whispered to her. Go away, she answered back. Was she the only one who carried out pithy dialogues in her head? With her head? Or was this normal? You don’t want to go down that road, her voice of reason spoke again, more emboldened than ever. Layla shook her head hotly as she walked out of her hotel gate, hopeful that the head jerk would knock her mental alter ego unconscious for at least a while.
