It was a 'do or die situation' for Nina. Her dad found out that she is dating a boy. Without any delay he fetched the contact number of that boy. Nina was anxiously biting her nails. Her mind was blank and her sight was blurring. She was not sure what her dad was going to do. She could not believe that her dad was about to call her boy friend. Drops of sweat formed on her forehead and soon goose bumps became visible on her hand.
Nina's dad dialed the number on the keypad and pressed the mobile phone against his ear. All of a sudden there was a smile on his face and next words he uttered were, "I think he is a nice boy, I would like to meet him". Nina jumped with joy!

He had activated the 'Hanuman Chalisa' (a prayer to god Hanuman) as his caller tune and Nina's father was a great devotee of Hanuman.
