A: Do you believe in destiny?
B: I believe that what will be will be.
A: Are you happy?
B: Happiness is a relative emotion.
A: When I was told you agreed to marry me, I was excited. A village girl like me, half-educated, marrying a doctor from the city.
B: A doctor? I’m a lawyer.
A: A lawyer? I must have heard wrongly.
B: What else were you told about me before you agreed to marry me?
A: Hmm, not much. I didn’t ask questions.
B: Do you at least know my name?
A: (smiles). I do
B: What is my name?
A: (smiles). I can’t call your name. I will write it down.
She writes : Dr. Ajit Malhotra
C: We need to find a good boy to marry soon. You can’t continue to take care of me forever.
D: O stop it father. I’m not complaining.
C: I will talk to a few people to find you a worthy suitor.
C: If you have someone in mind, this might be a good time to tell me.
C: Do I know him? What’s his name?
D: Vickram Dutt. He studies law in the university.
C: I will send for him.
D: If we are to be friends, how shall I address you?
E: Around here, people call me Dr. Ajit Malhotra but you can call me Ajit. What are you doing here alone?
D: I came to get away from some emotional issues back home.
E: Ah! Emotions. It can be a tricky thing to invest in.
D: Have you ever been in an accident?
D: Have you ever felt a heart break?
E: Those are two different questions. I have been in an accident. A boat accident. I was with some people, returning from a ceremony from a village and this storm from nowhere came. The last thing I remember, I was trying to hold on but when I opened my eyes, I was alone at the seashore. All the others in the boat were nowhere in sight.
D: I have never been in a physical accident but I too feel like I have been shipwrecked.
E: Perhaps, we can find a meeting place to comfort each other.
B: I am Vickram Dutt, a lawyer. You have been married to Dr. Ajit Malhotra. I have located him for you. I didn’t want to say anything till I was sure your husband survived the boat wreck.
A: What? Are you trying to get rid of me because I am a village girl?
B: My beloved is about to get married to your husband. If you doubt me, take this address and find your husband, Dr. Ajit Malhotra there.
B: Do you believe in destiny?
D: I believe that what will be will be.
** AND THEY ALL LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER **
