[Flashback Scenes – Normal Font]
23. Swati and Priyanka vacate their house
[October 11. 2016]
It was midnight 1 am when Naina called Sameer and disclosed the incidents that happened some hours ago. Sameer connected the call to Munna and Pandit and informed about the same. Preeti is with Naina.
Munna – “I really don’t know why Swati is behaving like this. Is she a drama queen? She didn’t even break up with me, but still she reasoned it and broke your friendship.”
Preeti – “I can’t believe this, Munna. Swati’s mom is not too conservative to protest your relationship. In fact, we thought it was easier to convince her.”
Pandit – “Guys, actually I came to know one important thing”.
Naina – “What was that, Pandit?”
Pandit – “Actually, I was with Swati and Munna yesterday. After parting ways, I went with my mom to hospital. We returned home at night 8. During that time, when we pass through Swati’s area, I came to know about this and Swati’s mom tried to kill herself. Also, people comment that Swati is going to get married”.
Munna – “What?”
Pandit – “Yeah, Swati and her mom are about to leave the area tomorrow. I don’t know where are they going?”
Munna – “Oops, then I’ll lose Swati forever. How could Swati agree for marriage?”
Naina – “Let it be, Munna. I think Swati’s mom might have manipulated her to cut off the friendship so that we would not search her later. So that, she can succeed. But she under-estimated our friendship even after she resided with us for few months, some years ago”.
Munna – “Uday uncle might have manipulated her.”
Sameer – “I try to get some information regarding this.”
They cut the call.
Priyanka (Swati’s mom) is packing up all the things and Swati is helping her reluctantly. She covers the furniture wth white cloth. “Within few days, I am going to get married. Because of my mom’s foolishness, I lost my best friends also. But I might not have used such harsh words to Naina and it is not easy to apologize too. Still, I have to inform them that this is just a drama to get rid of my mom’s dumbness for her sake. My mobile is broken, I could not use laptop too. I don’t have any other choice other than running away, but if I do the same, my mother would be blamed. I have to get some way soon,” she thinks closing the window.
Naina and Preeti are heading towards Swati’s house.
Meanwhile Uday and his wife Shakuntala comes to Swati’s house and she enters inside staring Swati. Shakuntala talks to Priyanka in private, “See Priyanka, according to our traditions, it was very wrong to love a high-caste boy and these days, girls are so disobedient. They are dressing exposing their body parts, using drugs and etc. So, better set alliance with my brother’s friend and her. he look so handsome and he could earn well also. His age is just 35.” Priyanka doesn’t react much but gives a nod.
Naina and Preeti reached her house and looks, Swati is standing alone staring at none. Naina and Preeti see a truck which is standing near the house where stuffs are stacked. Thus she confirms that they are vacating the house. Naina takes Swati’s name. Swati looks at Naina helplessly. “Naina has come. It is the right time to apologise her. I don’t know whether they could save me or not from this marriage,” Swati thinks but she is still confused and gets scared what if her uncle-aunty see this. Naina looks at Swati but Swati could not look at her eyes. Swati wipes her tears. Naina runs to her and hugs her. Both of them breaks into tears.
Preeti hugs both of them. Seeing no one is seeing them, Swati breaks the hugs and gives a smile. Naina glitters. Naina – “I know you won’t call off our friendship. What did you think? If you cuss for two minutes, did I leave you or not care of your existence?”
“Naina, I am sorry. My mom is going to get me married to a 35 years old guy. You know, I am loving Munna. Seeing the anecdotes, I could not reach Munna,” Swati cries. Preeti asks her – “Where are you both going now? Do you know anything about the place?” Swati – “Chennai…”
“If you are done with your talks, let my daughter and me leave,” Priyanka comes out ans said in a bitter tone. Swati goes and sit in the auto. Uday and Shakuntala locked the house. The auto leaves when Priyanka gets in the auto. Swati waves her hands to Naina crying. Naina reciprocated the same.
Naina’s phone beeps and it was Sameer who calls her.
Sameer – “Naina, Swati is going to get married to a 35 year old guy. I came to know this recently by now.”
Naina – “Yeah, Sameer. The good thing is, Swati is going to Chennai. We are also about to leave Chennai today’s night.”
Sameer – “Okay Naina, I too come there along with Pandit and Munna”.
Naina – “Sameer, but how is that possible? How do your parents allow?”
Sameer – “I can state exams as a reason to go there”.
Naina – “Where will you guys stay?”
Sameer – “In Chennai, my brother Devang resides in an apartment. His wife Poonam and I are so friendly, even bhai too. We would stay there and its not a problem for them”.
Naina – “Okay. Take Care, Sameer”. Naina cuts the call.
Vishaka is serving lunch for Vivek and Sameer. “Mom and Dad, actually I have a test to write at Chennai after 3 days”. Vishaka – “Thats fine, Sameer. But did you read anything for that? And you are saying at the eleventh hour about your Chennai trip”. Vivek – “Yeah, she is right. Why are you so carefree? You might have intimidated about the exam about some weeks ago. But only by now, you are saying.” Sameer gives a sympathizable look. Vishaka – “You are really going irresponsible, Sameer. If it is some other city, I would not have leave you. Okay, after eating, go and pack your things. I’ll inform Poonam about the same”. Sameer – “Mom, Pandit and Munna too are coming and we have to leave at night”. Vishaka nods.
Night 7 PM,
Agarwal family reached Railway Station. They are all sitting at the waiting area. Beena and Bela couldn’t rest themselves in a place and looking forward when the train will come. Naresh, Rakesh and Anand didn’t care about anything and resting relaxed. Arjun and Prakash didn’t accompany them as they have practical and exams in their college. Pooja and Sonakshi are busy with their phone and novel respectively. Naina and Preeti are also waiting when will they reach Chennai. Naina gets a message from Sameer – “Munna, Pandit, Pandit’s mom and I are in the train now, we will reach Chennai soon and would soon stop Swati’s alliance with the guy.”
Naina gets shocked to see the name ‘Pandit’s mom’. She shows the message to Preeti. Preeti replies, “Pandit’s mom is diabetic and his father is at abroad. It is not possible to leave her alone in home. She thought they were going Chennai for treatment.” Naina gets satisfied. Naina – “Then, if possible, try to convince your MIL now itself about your relationship.” Preeti sighs.
The train comes and the passengers get inside the train.
Pooja and Sonakshi helps them to keep the luggages at the top. They managed to get seat in the train. Beena, Naresh, Rakesh, Anand, Bela got a separate coach. Pooja, Preeti and Naina got a seperate coach along with some old people. Sonakshi could not accompany the girls due to lack of space in that coach. So, she sits in a separate coach where only one guy is there who is in formals looking through window. She sits opposite to the guy and then continues reading the novel.
Meanwhile, Sameer reached the destination (Chennai) along with Munna, Pandit and Pandit’s mom ‘Kavita’. Kavita – “Children, when will you have exams and when is the appointment? I am sorry to interrupt you in your enjoyment.” Sameer – “Its not like that, aunty. You are like our mother and who will take mother as a burden. Plus, we have our exams on October 18 and your appointment is on October 17”. Kavita smiles. The boys moved to the apartment where Poonam-Devang residing.
They reached the apartment. Poonam and Devang welcomed them in warm manner. The boys and Devang are asked to sleep in the hall due to absence of extra rooms. Kavita sleeps with Poonam.
Munna is sitting sad. Sameer revealed to Devang the real reason behind their visit. Munna tried not to express his feelings but he coudn’t.
Sameer – “Munna, nothing would happen to Swati. She will be yours for sure. If your love is true, why are you getting scared?”
Munna – “Many people are falling in love with someone they love. Some of them are loving her truly too. But not everyone is achieving their love”.
He lays on Pandit and cries. Sameer wipes his tears.
Sameer – “Munna, we would try our best to stop this wedding.”
Pandit – “Munna, be positive. Don’t breakdown. Naina said that Swati was doing the drama just because of her mom’s blackmaling. She asked not to take it heavy. She also love you truly, Munna. Definitely, you would unite with her.”
Pandit’s words give hope to Munna but he remains silent and dull.
Pandit – “Please speak something, Munna. It is devastating to see you hopeless.”
Neither Munna speaks nor reacts
Sameer – “Don’t be numb, Munna. You should stay strong in this consequence. Your silence hurts us more than our enemy’s rough words… Please Munna.”
Pandit and Sameer gets tearful. Munna hugs them and gets emotional.
Munna – “Would we able to stop the wedding, right?”
Sameer and Pandit nods. Devang pats them.
Sameer – “Munna, now you smile”.
Pandit – “Arrey… smile na..”
Munna gives a shy smile. Sameer and Pandit tickle him. Munna laughs.
Pandit – “This is enough, Pandit. We can achieve anything.”
He and Sameer put their hands on Munna and shake their legs in little happiness

So emotional episode. Felt bad for both Munna and Swati . Swati’s Uncle and Aunty is so mean , they want to marry off Swati with a 35years old man. Loving all of their friendship bond. Naina understood Swati’s helplessness and also informed about her marriage to Sameer. Sameer and Pandit supporting Munna so nice. Is the formal dressed man who sat opposite to Sonakshi – is he Dev ?
