Love still has its ways — Mumbai (Part-6)


Akira’s house:

Akira was packing her clothes and found a picture of the mansion. She caressed the picture and says: maybe ther eis something about this mansion that I am unsure about but I will find out.

She keeps it in her suitcase. She then thinks of something and becomes worried.

Akira: if someone suspects….

She sees a burqa hanging in the closet. She runs to it and snatches it out.

Akira: this will keep everyone safe.

She wears it and then the scene switches to Mumbai.


Today was holi. But this time they weren’t going to celebrate with that much pomp and show as of Gauri’s death.

Rikara’s room:

Om was on the bed in a plain white kurta and his hair in a bun, caressing Gauri’s photo in his hand. Teardrops fell on the picture. Just then he heard a voice.

Voice: are you not going to apply colour on me this holi?

The voice sounded very familiar. He turned to see Gauri smiling.

Gauri: thanks god no one has applied colour on you. Besides I am the one who should apply it on you first.

She takes a handful of red and applies it on him. She sees him shocked and snaps her fingers in front of him.

Gauri: is this holi different this year?

Om: what? Jaanu, it isn’t. I promise.

He takes some red and applies it on a maag. Saathiya played in the bg (male).

Jo na keh sake tum
Jo na keh sake hum (x2)

Kehne lagi dono se woh
Khamoshiyaan.. O saathiya
Kehne lagi dono se woh
Khamoshiyaan.. O saathiya

Saathiya saathiya
Saathiya saathiya (x2)

Baadlon mein
Ghul na jaayein
Hain jo naghme thehre thehre
Do dilon mein jazb karle
Saare jazbe gehre gehre

Kal kya pata milna miley
Nazdeekiyaan o saathiya
Kal kya pata milna miley
Nazdeekiyaan o saathiya

Saathiya saathiya
Saathiya saathiya.. (x2)

As Om winked, Gauri was no longer here. No colour was on him apart from the red on his hands. Pari entered the room hiding behind his leg.

Pari: save me. Nak bhauya applying green.

Om: choti drama queen.

Pari: come out with me. Me want you.

Om: ok.

He picks her up and they go out of the room together and outside.

On the other side of Mumbai:

A bus stopped and passengers came out one by one. The last one was the lady in the burqa with a suitcase in her hand and her guitar case on her back.

Lady: finally Akira, you are here.

Yes that lady is Akira.

She finds a rickshaw and says: bhaiya, Oberoi Mansion.

Rickshaw driver: ji maam.

She goes in and the rickshaw driver starts to drive. As Akira saw Mumbai once again, she saw Ajay.

Akira: oh no! This donkey!

Thankfully he was out of her sight soon. Soon they reached the Oberoi Mansion.

Akria: thank you bhaiya, here money.

Rickshaw driver: thank you.

Akira takes her stuff and goes in the mansion with slow steps as memories came back. As she entered, she imagined people coming to greet her.

Akira: what is happening to me?


In the garden:

As everyone was applying colours on each other, Om was hunched up in a corner not wanting to join the celebrations.

Precap: Naina.. jo saanjhe khwab dekhte the, Naina.. bichad ke aaj ro diye hain yun, Naina.. jo milke raat jaagte the, Naina.. sehar mein palken meechte hain yun.
