The newly in love couple are seated and talking. It must be fascinating to watch – Purvi talking with her hands and notes and Rajat smiling and replying.

Rajat: tum mujhe bhi yeh sign language sikhaoogi?

Purvi (note): toh yeh propose karna kisse seekha?

Rajat: woh maine online seekha. He smiles shyly.

Purvi (note): toh baaki sign language bhi online seekh lijiye..

Rajat (putting an arm around her shoulder): arre….tumse seekhoonga toh uss bahane tumhare saath waqt bitaa paaonga naa…shaadi se pehle hi sab kuch seekhna chahta hoon main..he gently hits her forehead with his.

Purvi smiles and looks at the sun ahead.

Rajat: Kya soch rahi ho?

Purvi (note): hamaari shaadi? Kya yeh ho paayegi? Aapke gharwaale? Kya woh maanenge?

Rajat: Maa aur Baapuji ko tum bahut pasand ho…rahi baat Papa ki..thoda muskhil hai lekin manage kar sakte hai….tum mujh par bharosa karti ho naa..

Purvi (note): aap par bahut bharosa hai…jaanti hoon mushkilen hongi…

Rajat: mushkile? Kaisi mushkile?

Purvi (fear, note): kya woh sab mujhe apnaayenge? Yeh jaante huye ki main sun bol nahi sakti..

Rajat: Purvi..issme kya badi baat hai…tumne apne aap ko itni achi tarah se sambhaala hai…I don't think tumhe koi bhi mushkil hogi adjust karne me..

Purvi (sad, note): aap nahi jaante yeh sab kitna mushkil hai mere liye….jab main choti thi…sab mujhse alag bartaav karte….main sun bol nahi sakti toh sab logon ne ye maan liiya tha ki main kuch nahi kar sakti…Maa-Papa bhi mujhse alag aur Surbhi se alag bartaav karte…main Surbhi ko dekhti aur yeh sochti ki ussme aur mujhme kya farak hai…uske dost alag, uska school alag, uske hobbies alag, uske khilone alag…mujhe aisa lagta tha jaise main iss duniya ka hissa hi nahi hoon…main apne aap ko iss duniya ka hissa banana chahti thi…bahut mushkile sahi hai maine…apne aap ko iss bheed me shaamil karne..aur bahut hi kam logon ne saath diya hai mera..aur ab yeh sab phir se hoga….kayi log aaj bhi mujhpe haste hai, mera mazaak udaate hai…mujhe inn sab ki aadat ho gayi hai magar…

Rajat: Magar kya Purvi?

Purvi (tears, note): Magar aap meri zindagi se juddd jaayenge…kahin iss baaar log aapka mazaak naa udaaye meri wajah se…main yeh seh nahi paoongi..She sobs.

He understands her pain. He gently hugs her, she buries her face in his chest. Once she has calmed down, he speaks in gentle tones to her..

Rajat: Log haste hai toh unhe hasne do…woh iss liye haste hai kyunki kisike kamiyon ka mazaak banana aasan hai, magar unn kamiyon ko jeet ke zindagi jeena bahut mushkil hai…logon ke hasne se toh hum jeena nahi chodd sakte naa..main jaanta hoon Purvi..hum dono ke yeh mel bahut logon ko nahi bhaayega..lekin ek baat samajh lo…hum dono ka pyaar sacha hai…hamare dil mil gaye hai….hum ek doosre ko samajhte hai…hamare pyaar ko koi bhi bhasha ki zaroorat nahi hai…bas yeh DIL SE DIL TAK ki baat hai..hai naa..

Purvi smiles at him and nods her head in agreement. They talk for some more time and leave the place hand in hand to her house.

Purvi house

Purvi and Rajat touch her father's feet for blessings. Her father hugs them both together.

PurviF: Main bahut khush hoon…bahut zyaada khush…bas iska ghar bass jaaye..main aaram se apni aankhen bandh kar sakta hoon..

Purvi (angry): itni kya jaldi hai..mujhe chodke jaane ki baat kyun kar rahe hai..aap bahut bure hai..she hugs her father..

PurviF: arre…main toh aise hi keh raha tha…mere kehne ka yeh matlab tha ki tumhari zimmedaari Rajat ko saunp doonga toh chinta mukt ho jaoonga…hai naa Rajat..

Rajat (smiles): Uncle…Purvi itni kaabil hai…ki woh toh meri zimmedaari le sakti hai..kyun? logi naa? He teases her..

She goes inside to her room.

PurviF: Rajat…tum apne ghar pe kab baat karne waale ho?

Rajat: bahut jald uncle..papa business ke silsile me shaher se baahar gaye hai..unke aate hi main baat karoonga..

PurviF: chalo theekh hai…mujhe toh abhi bhi yakeen nahi ho raha hai..meri Purvi ka ghar bassne jaa raha hai….tumne sapne toh dikhaa diye hai..bas ek prarthna hai..uska dil mat todna…he has tears in his eyes..

Rajat: Nahi Uncle..please….aap mujh par poora bharosa kar sakte hai…main Purvi ko who saari khushiyaan doonga jiski who haqdaar hai..main kabhi koi aisa kaam nahi karoonga jisse uska dil toote ya uske izzat pe koi aach aaye..yeh mera waada hai aapse..

Later, at the door…

Rajat: jaane ka mann toh nahi hai…huhhh he sighs..magar jaana padegaa..

Purvi (shy smile, note): Ghar pahunchte hi mujhe message kar denge..

Rajat: hmmm..okay…lekin usse pehle ek goodbye gift?

Purvi (surprise, note): Goodbye gift?

Rajat looks around and bends to kiss her cheek. She steps back, denying him in shyness..

Rajat: kya hua?

Purvi (shy, note): aap jaayiye..Papa dekh lenge..

Rajat (looking inside, tapping her shoulder): ohhh…who tumhare papa bulaa rahe hai..

She turns to see and he quickly kisses her cheek slyly. Purvi gets a shock and turns to see him. He has a playful smile on his face and she is blushing red.

Rajat: Goodbye Purvi…Good night..and sweet dreams..

She slowly shuts the door and goes to her room smiling in shyness. She shuts the door, her breathing is rapid and she feels her cheek. Her phone glows with an incoming message.

Rajat (message): I miss you… sad smiley

Purvi (message): itni jaldi….

Rajat (message): hmm…mera toh haal abhi se aisa hai..pata nahi shaadi tak kaise rok paaonga apne aap ko..

Purvi(message): Uss din ka toh mujhe bhi intezaar rahegaa….

Rajat (message): chalo..kal hi shaadi kar lete hai phir..

Purvi (shock, message): Kya?

Rajat(message): hahahaha…main tumse aise chori chupke shaadi nahi karna chahta…main dhoom dhaam se poore duniya ke saamne tumhe apna banana chahta hoon…sabke saamne tumhare maang me sindoor bharna chahta hoon..

They chat on like this…New love !

Next day morning, bureau..

Everyone is discussing about some cricket match.

Abhijit: arre yaar..kal Rohit Sharma out nahi hota toh aaram se jeet jaate..

Pankaj: kya sir..aap hamesha batsmen ki hi galti nikaalte hai..hamare spinners ne kya faltoo bowling ki..20-25 run toh gift me de diye Sri Lanka ko..

They continue to argue and counter argue.

Nikhil: arre..bass karo…ek kaam karte hai..Rajat sir se puchte hai..wohi toh hamare cricket expert hai..Rajat sirrr…

Rajat is busy texting Purvi, he has a smile on his face. Pankaj comes and shakes his shoulders.

Rajat: haan..kya hai Pankaj..

Pankaj: arre sir..aapki zaroorat hai..wahan ghamaasan discussion chal raha hai..aayiye naa..

Rajat joins the discussion coming back to his duty-mode.

Rajat (embarrassed): Nahi..woh…woh….he looks for excuses, doesn't get any.

Abhijit: ohhhh…tum bureau se seedha ghar hi gaye naa? Yaa raasta bhool gaye?

Rajat (nervous): bureau se main ….ahhh…haan…raaste me…woh….

Everyone crowds him now. They all realise he is trying to hide something, but owing to his straight naure he cannot..

Daya (winking): haan haan jaoo…jaane se pehle itna toh bataoo..woh Versova me station ke paas jo beach hai uska naam kya hai?

Rajat (shy): Sir..kal..kal shaam ko main…uske saath tha

Abhijit: uske? Kiske? Maasaa ki Maasi ke saath? He winks..

Rajat nods his head as yes, shyly looking down. He runs his hands through his hairs.

Nikhil: Mubarak ho sir….rishtaa pakka?

Rajat: Thank you Nikhil…haan…kal maine Purvi ko shaadi ke liye propose kiya..aur woh maan gayi..

Everyone congratulates Rajat!

Abhijit: arre waah….abhi do din pehle hi tumhari Maa ne shaadi ki baat ki thi..aur tum toh bhai superfast nikle..

Rajat: pehle ghar par toh baat kar loon..mere papa 2 din baad aayenge…soch raha hoon tabhi unse baat kar loon..

Everyone wishes him good luck for that…

2 days later

Rajat comes home at dinner time. His mother opens the door with a worried look on her face.

Rajat: Maa…kya baat hai..aise pareshaan kyun ho?

RajatM: andar toh aa…bataati hoon…

Rajat comes inside and hears sounds of laughter. His father is home and the various voices indicate presence of guests.

He steps inside and reaches the drawing room. His father sees him and gets up.

RajatF: Arre…aa gaya…aajaa…aajaa….dekh tujhse kaun milne aaye hai..

He looks at the guests and gets a shock – its Saavi and her parents..

Saavi (excited): Hiiii Rajat !

Rajat: aap…aap sab log? Yahan?

SaaviF: haan beta…tumhare papa se baat karne aaye the…khush khabri hai..

Rajat (scared): Kya?

rajatF: Humne rishta pakka kiya hai…teri aur Saavi ki…his father hugs him, while Rajat looks on horrified at his mother. His mother exchanges worried looks with him…..

Will Rajat be able to tell about Purvi to his father? Will his father accept Purvi?
