Mehra house
Abhi is standing in his balcony looking at Tanu’s picture in his phone.
Purab : bhai, you didn’t sleep yet? what are you looking
Abhi : nothing I am not sleepy, what are you doing here at this time
Purab : I was going to kitchen to get water, bhai I wanted to ask you from long time about Tanu, I mean do you like her
Abhi : what does it matter, when you and I both know dad will never accept this relation
Purab : but bro, she might be from middle class family, as far as I know her she is very modern and today’s generation girl
Abhi ; its not that easy Purab, we are very different, our lifestyles, background and I don’t think Tanu will be able adjust in this house
Purab : I am sure she will, she has that capability, and you also wanted that type of girl right who could understand your workload and give in the time your spare time
Abhi : I know she is right girl for me but not this family, and dad too wants the daughter in law who can easily adjust in this family and who is able to understand the rules for this family
Purab : you are over thinking Abhi, nothing like that will happen and Tanu is smart and sensible, she will make her place in this house
Abhi : I guess you are right, but before giving any commitment to Tanu I want to know dad’s opinion, and we don’t know whats in Tanu’s mind right now
Purab ; you leave that to me, you just talk to dad soon alright
Abhi : okay now you go, its too late, you have to leave for airport tomorrow right
Purab : oh yea I completely forgot about that I have to go for conference tomorrow, good night brother
Abhi : good night
Arora house
Pragya enters her main hall room to talk with her dad who is reading the book seating on the chair
Prakash : why are you standing there dear, come inside (says keeping his book aside)
Pragya : I want to talk something important with you dad
Prakash ; why are you so scared, you know I am like a friend to all of you children, say frankly what is the matter
Pragya (sits down ) : dad, you know that more than mom you are my best friend thats why I want to talk about my life today
Prakash : go ahead I am listening
Pragya : remember you told me that you want a guy for me who will love and respect me and I said I want that person to be like you and I found him dad, prince of my dream who will whisk me away in fairytale
Prakash : you took in reality the fairytales your mom told you all in childhood, dear its real life
Pragya : I know dad but he is the person I was waiting whole life
Prakash : who is he? (Says with seriousness)
Pragya : his name is Rajiv
Prakash : what does he do? is he well to do?
Pragya : actually dad, he is from a middle class family but he is very ambitious, he got a very good job in London and soon will get promotion in his job, he is a newspaper editor

Prakash gets in thinking after hearing his daughter’s words. Though he never refused his children for anything he would not want them to do anything wrong
Pragya : what happened dad?
Prakash : Pragya, me and your mom always gave you all three freedom you wanted so you can cope up with this world, and you all never misused that freedom so I want to meet that boy before deciding anything
Pragya : really dad? (Says excitedly)
Prakash : but only on one condition, I have kept honor of your words now you too have to keep our honor, if I find anything wrong in that guy I will not let you marry him and you have to respect our decision
Pragya : I promise dad, I will never go against you and keep the honor of this family (puts hands on his)
The screen freezes on Abhi’s tensed and Pragya’s happy face. Next day at Mehra house everybody gathers on dining table for breakfast. Alia gets on thinking about Sid.
Rakesh ; Arpita, I want to talk something important today
Arpita : what is new in that? go ahead
Rakesh : I have found suitable partner for Abhi
Everybody stays surprised on Rakesh’s casual behavior
Arpita : are you serious? and you did not bother to tell me, its my son’s life, at least tell us who is that girl
Rakesh : that girl’s name is Tanushree Agarwal
Abhi’s coffee slips from mouth hearing the name
Arpita : is that girl working in our office, Abhi’s personal assistant
Rakesh : yes you are right, Abhi what do you think, final decision would be yours
Abhi : whatever you say dad
Purab : wow bro, you are so lucky, that dad is agreeing to your relationship
Rakesh : I can hear everything
Arpita : but how did you agree to this knowing Tanu’s background
Rakesh : because my son loves her, and if I cannot do a small thing for him what is the use of this prestige
Abhi is delighted to hear his dad’s words and goes to seek his blessing
Rakesh (makes him stand up): Abhi, so what if I don’t talk to you about your personal life but I can read your eyes and mind but you have to promise me something today
Abhi : yes dad, anything for you, I didn’t expected that you could agree to make Tanu daughter in law of this house
Rakesh : I know in past I had another perception about middle class people but I always want happiness for my family Abhi so you have to make a promise that you will not let the honor of this family let down at any cost
Abhi : I promise you dad no matter what I will never put this family’s honor at stake
Arpita : fine then lets call her family and meet them once
Purab : she only has a elder brother who is Abhi’s best friend
