Vishal: Hi, it was quick of you to remember me…huh? How are you? All OK? Megha: Since how long is this going on? Vishal:What are you taking about? Megha: This.. online dating! Vishal: How does it concern you? Vishal: And I was as it is going to delete it but then suddenly you messaged saying-Hi! Megha: And you responded to someone’s ‘Hi’ just like that? Vishal: I respond to everyone who pings me. That app is made for all this only. Megha: Don’t try to act smart! Vishal: Why are you so pissed? Did no one say ‘Hi’ to you other than me?No Ding Dong? No action? You did nothing? Megha: Unlike you I don’t have time to waste. I have removed that app. Very Good; You as it is don’t need it anymore because you have me now Megha: What are you looking at? Vishal: Nothing… so, what’s the programme? Megha: Programme? Vishal: You know, neither of us has touched each other properly since I’ve arrived Megha: Keep your **** and yourself under control! Vishal: What is your problem? Since I have arrived, you seem to be so unnecessarily pissed off; What has happened? What is your problem? What is it with you being mum? Megha: I’m pregnant! Vishal: Earlier you used to go on and on and on talking
You’re testing my patience now My brain is as it is not working and on top of it, your tantrums! Arrgghh.. Leave it, what were you saying? Say it Megha: I’m pregnant! Vishal: Megha! Don’t petrify me! I am as it is overloaded with work. Please don’t joke around with me Megha: Joke? Are you mad? Why will I be joking about my pregnancy? Vishal: But..how? Megha: Are you mad or stupid? Don’t you know how? Vishal: But, it has been just 15 days since we’ve met Megha: Yeah, so? Vishal: We’re meeting for the third time! Megha: So? Vishal: It happens….out of excitement!But I never meant to do it. I never had any such intention But…you have in the past… Megha: What in the past? Vishal: I mean, you must have met other guys in the past? Megha: And you think one of those guys impregnated me? Vishal: No… I don’t mean so. Megha: See, the thing is, I did meet three guys before I had met you. But none of them was a nymphomaniac like you! You could have been a bit more decent while meeting me for the first time, why did you hold my hand and then kiss me? Did you not feel it was way too much? On the second date, we went to go out for a movie and you were purposely leaning over your head over my shoulder, trying to kiss me, somehow Vishal: Hold on! You wanted to meet and so did I. And don’t you dare talk about the kiss! You know how you were acting throughout the film. I was planning to go back home after dropping you off at your place. But then suddenly you started picturing some kind of ghost, some monster and asked me to drop you upstairs in your room. And then took place the tragedy! How many times did you check? Megha Three times Vishal: Shit!! Megha: So, what now? Vishal: What now? Both: Abort? Megha: But where? How? No one should come to know! Vishal: Dont you know any doctor? Megha : Are you nuts? Why will I consult a familiar doctor? Vishal: Ok, tell me something, have you told anyone about this? Megha : No! Vishal: Megha! Megha! Listen.. come here! hunny: Drastic time I tell you, these drinks don’t make me high anymore. . I am telling you either these drinks are counterfeit or I am in love. I was thinking.. remember sweety from our locality… the one who lves in Mr.Gupta’s PG the one whom I threw a rose at… I think it is now time to finally give her my mobile number. I have kept her so restless. And you know what, she is so shy to ask me for it. And brother, now I can converse in English as well. Do you want to listen? see no ! See.. these two fingers out, thumb up. This is called swag. Ok. Now something like this. ‘hey! Howz ya.. ‘ see no hey! Howz.. shut up dude! I am getting fucked up here and your howz ya is not getting over. Why are you so tensed ? Nothing. You won’t understand. Just keep quiet. Tell no.. what happened ? Keep it to yourself only. Don’t spread it to everyone in the colony. Bloody Google you are ! I won’t tell it to anyone. Say it freely. Remember i told you about a girl I had met on an online dating app. Megha.. i told you about her. Yes yes. i remember. Then ? I fucked up big time. Bro,you don’t know what fucked up is Listen I will tell you what fucked up means. Remember that guy Vicky in our society. From whose cyber cafe we download all the English films. For his arranged marriage, his parents took him to meet a girl. He said yes immediately after looking at the girl. But even before his wedding, he.. now he will celebrate his honeymoon along with his kids ! This is how you fuck up ! What have you done ? You giving me looks like the as if you are Vicky’s.. oh fuck.. oh fuck !! Dude you seriously fucked up ! Bro.. you are in deep shit. You unmarried father ! Shut up dude ! I am in a big mess. I told you so that you could help me and here you are, scaring me instead. I have absolutely no idea what to do. I can’t think anything. Bro.. we are being told since childhood. What ? Two drops of life! I ‘ll beat you up to death. Ok tell me one thing. Do you like her ? I don’t know.. I have never thought about her on those lines. You must have liked her a little which is why you went there like a bhakchonar. Tell me one thing, what if I don’t talk to her at all? Like I don’t pick her call, don’t reply to her texts. I can’t control what has already happened. And I am not going to marry her because of this. Can you do it ? I don’t know. I think I will go to her and sort everything. I am not getting into this mess.I don’t want to become a father. Shit happened. Now what can I do about it. Go.. see who is there. Why are you still sitting ! I am going. Listen.. what does bhakchonar mean ? I can’t understand this guy. Here I am dying to get a girl and he is leaving her future wife. Yes ? Vishal ? Who are you ? Megha. Ohh you! Please come. Please make yourself comfortable. You are looking perfectly fine. What do you mean ? Vishal.. vishal ! What.. Handle your mess. Sit . Is everything ok ? What did you tell your friend ? No.. nothing. As if i can’t see? Ok, I want to tell you something. whatever happened between us. I am not asking for a relationship here. why do we have to complicate things. Let’s end this. End this ! What do you mean ? I am giving you a solution to your messed up state of mind. what? i mean like.. like the way you were in your life and like the way i was in my life before we had met. Let’s just keep it that way. Just chill. And what about this ? This, this I ‘ll manage. I have a friend in Bhopal, she will help me. You don’t take any tension. You Sure? Absolutely. So no problem? no problem. So i should not worry about this? Megha i was so worried. I had no clue what to do ! I was afraid that i might have to marry you. I was telling Hunny this only. I don’t love you. I don’t feel anything for you. Yes something happened, but it was a mistake. we can’t force ourselves. Exactly. It doesn’t work like that. Marriage is out of question. You just met me few days back. Yeah, just 15 days. And here I was getting worried for no reason. Now you will drink alone ? you are not even offering me. wait i’ll get you hunny? What’s happening ? Everything sorted. Bro, she is looks happier than you. I’ll leave now. But you just came. Stay please. Megha ! Where are you going ? I have to meet someone. Your friend from Bhopal ? Megha listen, thanks… for understanding. Come on lets drink. come The subscriber you are calling is not answering. Please call again later. Hey Romeo ! Why are you so engrosed in your phone ? It has been 10 days, she has not replied, and neither is she picking up my calls. She hasn’t spoken with me since the last time we met. Even the ticks on what’sapp are blue. Leave it, why are you getting tensed ? It doesn’t happen like this. I should at least know if she is ok for courtesy atleast You have shown your courtsey by letting her go. Now she is on her own. Isn’t it ? Keep your lectures to yourself. Don’t use your brain that is already very less. I am already tensed here. the other day when she had come here, i had over heard everything. What did you hear ? That she loves you what else ! It was so clear from her face. When she had came, she had said infront of you that everything was sorted. Did she not say it ? And you agreed ? yes You are an idiot I don’t love her. I don’t feel anything for her. You don’t feel anything ? no Nothing? I told you there is nothing Then why are you getting so restless since one week ? Why are you so engrossed into your phone all the time ? Don’t you get it ? Ok, I agree that not a single girl is interested in me. But i can make out this what happening in this situation. The problem with you is you are never happy with a girl or without any girl. You deserve this mess. And what logic is this, that if she is pregnant, then its her problem alone. You are equally responsible for it. You act like a hero but you didnt have the courage to buy a condom. She said everything is alright and you agreed to it. So what should i do ? Keep playing with the bloody phone in your hand. She will eventually get someone else. But you will rot here. Should I meet her? No, let me meet her. Wait. I am going. ****** You, what are you doing here ? What is going on over here ? I am busy. I can see that. And why weren’t you picking up my call ?Not even replying to my messages? What do you want ? Can we please talk for two minutes outside ? Just for two minutes. You go, i’ll come. What, tell me? What happened to you ? Nothing. You wanted to talk, right? Why were you were not picking up my calls or replying to my messages.? I didn’t feel it was necessary. That’s why i didn’t take your calls. What is the problem ? Why aren’t you talking ? Why should i talk ? What’s the need ? We spoke the other day. Everything is clear now, right? I will manage. You take care of yourself. And after all, it’s my fault that i came up to your place to meet you. I will find someone. I won’t keep waiting for you. I know you will get someone else. But. What But ? You are here because you are feeling pity for me that I will have to manage everything on my own, right? No Megha. Then why have you come ? I was scared. I couldn’t think. And I had never thought about getting into this marriage thing. I had absolutely no idea what to do what to say. I just wanted to run away from the situation and not accept it. Then go away, who is stopping you ? But I have now come to you . I’ve come, no? Just for 2 minutes, imagine that I am not pregnant. Now tell me, what will be your answer ? What happened you dont have any answer ? Why are you taking so much pressure ? And you have come here because you are feeling guilty. Not because you like me. I can’t live with a guy who accepts me because of an obligation. And whatever happened, happened because we both had agreed to it. I felt something for you but you did not. I won’t kill you for that. You are right Megha. I had never thought this way. And if this didn’t happen I wouldn’t have ever come. I will never be able to feel anything for you… never . Because till the time it doesnt come from within, its useless. That’s what I wanted to tell you. We are not meant for each other. And it’s completely fine. And what about this ? Its not there anymore. i’ve aborted few days ago. You should have told me. Had I told you, you would have never come here. it’s getting over-emotional now. Listen, I have to go inside.
