Spirits of light
But that was something else, Aruna too knew she will do the same but since last couple of years she was disobeying Gangabai’s only order, tagging Karuna along with her on her wanderings.

She worried too much, was always asking her to return to the fort… she was a perpetual nagger in Aruna’s eyes.
