1.Pavilion bar Magestic circle
It is 9.00 PM Raghava sat alone. He finished drinking beer and started thinking whether to go to the dance floor or go back home. The girls he hired for dancing with him only danced like robots. There was no chemistry between them and Raghava. The chemistry should be natural. He remembered Sandeep and Saanvi. That is the chemistry. He was very jealous of Sandeep. He has a beautiful lover too. He remembered Manjusha. He took the mobile from his pocket and started looking at Manjusha's pictures. Aktar was watching him from the other table. He never discurages he would rather give suggestions that help your tials.
Your beauty makes anybody mad. What a figure! Good eyes , great thighs! What a breast that arrest the beholder's eyes. Such a queen fell for Sandeep. How unlucky I am. If you are with me I won't come to dance bars. Where have you gone? Raghava was speaking to the image in his phone. The manager came to Raghava. " would you like to see the girls?"
Raghava nodded his head squarely showing his disapproval. But when he saw the girl in jeans shorts he felt an electric shock. It was Manjusha. His body is still vibrating. His breath became heavy. He walked towards her. Manjusha smiled at Aktar. Raghava felt the earth under his feet is trembling. " I want to take her with me." He said to the manager.
Manjusha was not willing to go with Raghava. Aktar came and said to Manjusha" will you dance with me?" Manjusha smiled. Raghava objected " I want her . I first came to her." said he. " But she won't go with you to your place." said the manager. Aktar said " You enjoy , I will go away." Aktar went out. " Raghava , come on let us dance."
Raghava could not move. His legs were locked. He collapsed in the chair at the table.
"Manjusha sat at the table. I know you like me. come on, dance with me."
"Manju, my heart is bleeding. I can not see you in this position. What happened to you? Where are you living? How much money you want? " Raghava asked emotionally.
"If you ask all these questions I will go. your dream is standing before you. You can dance. Don't hesitate. Sandeep won't feel bad if you dance." Manjusha persuaded Raghava.
Manju, where are you? Are you in any trouble? Tell me I can help you.
Manjusha was irritated by Raghava's questions. "Raghava it is time I moved." Said Manju. "Ok, Manju, Don't tell me anything. just tell your mother that you are on your own." said Raghava. We can not answer your family, your brother and mother." I will tell my mother tomorrow I promise." "Tell me you don't want to dance with me?"
"I can not dance with you." said Raghava. Manjusha smiled and got off from the chair.
2. Ananda Nilayam - Visitors
The traditional courtyard house Ananda Nilayam had unusual hustl and bustle. Tens of visitors are comig to see the Bharatavarsha. But Varsha is not at home. Radhamanoharam flowers have brought more light with more smiles. The jasmine gaillardia and zinna flowers with soothing aroma attracted more butterflies. The visitors are watching the Sahitya Akademy copper plaque placed under the portrait of Varsha's father, the martyred soldier. The flowers are competing with the award in attracting new visitors.
Parvathi is receiving guests and offering tea and coffee to the visitors. Nandini came in to the Manduva and saw the plaque. She felt it wa splaced correctly. "The placement brings beauty to things." She said to Parvathi. Nandini took the plaque and hugged it to her heart. "When you are placed in Ananda Nilayam you will be more beautiful." said Parvathi gently taking the plaque from her embrace. Don't press him hard he will be suffocated. said Syamala. "Yes, yes treat my brother gently." said Parvathi.
Nandini took Syamala and Parvathi by ears and said Rascals you are training me how to treat my man. She said to Syamala "How gently you are treating your husband? She then turned to Parvathi and said "Oh my God! I thought the village girl can not speak. You must be married without any delay ." Paravthi ran into the kitchen and brought two cups of tea and gave them to Nandini and Syamala. Just then Ramya came in heard their conversation and said " Parvathi is not like Nandini she will treat Armugam more genty, Am I right? "
As she came in she grasped the conversation and and gave a witty reply. It was a surprise to Parvathi but not to Ramya and Syamala. "Ramya youngest of all but quickest of all." said Nandini. " How to you know about Armugam?" said Parvathi. "Where did your brother go?" She asked Parvathi. Parvathi had no answer. "Nandini, go see your aunt Malini in bedroom. We can discuss these things anytime?" said Ramya.
They got into the bedroom. Malini was lying on the bed. Nandini touched her and felt her body hot. "She has fever." said Nandini. She travelled to Delhi. She participated in the Sahitya akademy Award cermony. I think she is tired. "
Malini got up and began to feel uncomfortable. Tension was looming large on her face. All the girls became serious. Parvathi went in to bring tea. Nandini took balm and started applying it to her fore head and temples. Malini was unable to speak. Ramya said " Why should you feel small? You have n't done any mistake. You have worshipped several gods, done several good deeds. God will certainly help you. Don't worry." When Ramya finished Malini started crying aloud.
3. Ananda Nilayam - Matrimonial ties
The head of the house Malini on hearing the footsteps of Varsha became grave. When Varsha came to Ananda Nilayam there is a graveyard silence. All the girls have grave faces too. In spite of her son winning national honor she was not at all cheerful because her daughter ran away. She can't tell anybody about it. She can not blame anybody about it. She was humiliated and suffering silently. The girls did not know how to console her.
Varsha was sitting in the livingroom. He didn't want to go into the bedroom. The telephone rang. Varsha picked up. It was mayor on the line. He congratulated Bharatavarsha on winning National Sahitya Akademy award. Varsha thanked him and came back to the sofa. Again the phone rang. It was the municipal commissioner who said congratulations to Varsha.
Malini was quite tense. There was unrest in the house. Their golden moments were snatched. Who has snatched their golden moments? Who is responsible for it. Malini said " I am responsible for it. There is something wrong in the brought up. I must be blamed." said Malini. Varsha did not go into the bedroom to console Malini. None has the guts to joke or talk. Ramya said " What happened now?" Nandini was frightened at the question.
Malini: The young girl of this age ran away, She has not returned yet. How shameful!
Ramya: Do you feel shameful if she is in love with somebody?
Bharatavarsha went into the bedroom and looked into Ramya's face. She was fearless.
Ramya tell me the truth. whom did she love? said Varsha. "
Ramya:Will you scold her if she is in love with somebody who doesn't belong to your caste?
Malini got some hope. She has signs of life. She said to Ramya " Tell me if you know. Who did she love? Syamala " She knows everything but she is a thief . She won't tell anyone."
Bharatavarsha got into the bedroom and asked Ramya " Ramya, you know where she is. whom she loved. Is it not your responsibility to tell when the entire house is in doldrums. Why are you dillidallying?"
Nobody will scold her. I will marry Manju with the boy she has chosen. Tell me ramya who is the boy. Malini assured Ramya. Nandini and Parvathi were waiting with bated breath.
"She is in love with Sandeep. I don't know where she is. She must be in bangalore."
Malini became instantly relieved of tension. Her face is brightened up. She looked at Varsha. Varsha looked at Nandini. Nandini turned pale. What is this you are looking faces, tell me do you accept her love?" asked Ramya. Bharatavarsha smiled at his mother and went into his study. Malini silently went into the kitchen. Parvathi, Ramya and Syamala were tense. Ramya said " They have accepted but giving us tension. They are teasing us. Be ready to listen to the good news. Your aunt has gone into the kitchen to bring us sweets." When Ramya finished Malini came to the girls with a tray full of sweets. Your aunt is too smart Ramya is correct." said Syamala.
"Except Nandini all take sweets" said Malini. Ramya, Parvathi and Syamala took sweets.
Nandini asked Ramya " What is this twist?" Ramya " Your aunt is not only smart but also romantic." Whispered Ramya. "what ? what??" asked Nandini eagerly again.
"Uff. tubelight!!! I can't explain everything." said Ramya and ran away. Malini laughed heartily. She gave the sweet to Nandini's mouth. Nandini was surprised. Malini kissed Nandini. Tears of happiness rolled in Nadini's eyes. Don't you put a sweet in my mouth?" asked Malini. Nandini took a sweet and put it Malini's mouth.
Malini: We both accepted Sandeep as the son in law of this house. I will go to Nandini Nilayam to meet the elders of the house to talk about Manjusha's marriage.
Nandini : I never thought you would accept this alliiance. Thank you aunt.
Malini : Shut up! Ramya is correct you are a tubelight.
Parvatia and Syamala chuckled. Ramya who ran out came in an joined them.
Malini was all smiles. She took Nandini near and said "When I accepted you as the daughter in law of this house why not I accept Sandeep? I don't know all about Sandeep. I trust you. You are the Lakshmi of this house. Will you marry my son?
Nandini's cheeks blushed like roses. Suddenly and involuntarily pearls in her mouth shined whiter than the light. She bent down and touched Malini's feet. Malini lifted her up and hugged. Who will tell Varsha in his study this news? said Malini with a sly tone.
Nandini cursed her dimwits. She understood that she was given full permission. She took a sweet and ran into the study. She shut the door behind. " Shutting door is only after the marriage, be mindful of unmarried girls in this house." shouted Ramya. You little devil, It is not me but wind shut the door." shouted Nandini after opening the door.
Varsha sat in the chir. He raised his brows that ask the question what is the matter.
Nandini was disappointed with her own dullness. Nandini is always dynamic but why she is like that today? She asked herself. She directly sat in his lap. Her beautiful soft back touched Varsha. They got soldered in the heat of love" My mother ...." He muttered. " Don't worry she gave this sweet and sent me." said Nandini. "your friends....' Said Varsha. uh! why should I think about others? " But is it not dangerous to sit in the lap of unruly man?" asked Varsha. Do anything you like. I welcome it. I am your wife now. Open your mouth. said Nandini and put a sweet at his lips. but Varsha did not open his lips. Nandini put the sweet in her mouth and brought it close to his lips. Varsha's lips opened automatically.
They stated chewing the sweet for a few seconds, later varsha caught her lips. Nandini did not want to lose the time. She put her mouth in his mouth. Varsha's hands were around her slender waist. The mouth to mouth kis continued until the phone rang.
4. Ananda Nilayam - Varsha - Agastya conversation
Bharatavarsha went into the Manduva and picked the phone. It was writer's association president. He showered congratulations in verses. Malini, Syamala, Ramya Parvathi came to the phone. jubiliant mood has taken over everybody. The writer who called was singing verses. He was loud and heard by all. When the phone conversation was over Malini called Nandini. "Why are you hiding there in the study? Come and stand beside my son." she said. They stood beside each other. "My heart is full. Parvathi and Manju's marriage should be performed along with my son's marriage." said Malini.
Manju's marriage is a bit complicated. Sandeep is soft and educated but his father ... Bharatavarsha is unable to speak further. "My father honors my word."said Nandini. Ramya said " I know what your father honors. He honors money. The dowry expectation will be high since he raised his son with lot of hopes of dowry." Nandini was shocked at Ramya's directness. "Don't be rude Ramya, my father will not demand dowry." Said Nandini.
"Nandini we don't find fault with your father. We are ready to meet his demand. Nothing is more than Manju for me." said Malini. "Manju's marriage is related with money but what about Parvathi's?" said Ramya. Nandini said " She too loved a man, try him."
Syamala: Yes. we can try. Who knows what kind of boy he is!
We village girls don't do love. Love is done by city girls like you.
"Village girls are no less. More over no one can believe that you are innocent." Said Ramya. Parvathi looked and Ramya slantly from the corner of her eyes. Oh! My God Amma, Look at those eyes. They are whirl pools one can not come out if slipped in them." Shouted Ramya again.
Malini laughed and said "What is wrong if she has wonderful eyes. That is God's gift to her. Don't delay still. Pursue the same match. They liked each other. This dumb girl can not express. The boy is highly polished and determined. He opened his heart to Paarvathi while serving. He is quick and clever. He knew that he would not be able to meet Parvathi else where. He did not waste time to tell his love. He has great time sense. He did not waste his time after expressing his love. He is quite determined, find his details. "
Varsha was looking at Parvathi. "What does Parvathi say?" He was not only teasing Parvathi but also trying to bring out her heart. Parvathi was looking at all one after the other, into their faces.
Varsha opened his lips "Kesava told me that the boy ( Armugam) is young and smart. He also told me that he has a sharp mind. Agastya said that he is a Road Romeo. " he said.
Parvathi said something to Malini and went into the bedroom. All are surprised at the village girl's quickness. "She is sullen because we are temporizig."said Ramya. All laughed.
Malini said Patrvathi says "If anybody sees a girl while taking bath the girl should marry only him and none else." All girls began laughing. Malini too joined them. Mandva is tiled roofing is disturbed. Varsha could not hush the women. The phone rang agian. It was Agastya was on the line. Agastya was telling the news of Armugam joining medicine. He pushed the speaker button. The girls went into bedroom and pulled out unwilling Parvathi to the phone.
Varsha : So. Armugam still roming on the roads of Chennai?
Agastya : No, No, Now he has joined Medical college again.
Varsha : Are you sure? How is it possible? He dropped out medicine two years ago.
Agastya : A dropout can rejoin MBBS but should complete it in 8.5 years. The drop out should show a compelling reason for dropping out. I have seen his admission receipt. I have seen him going to college.
Varsha : I believe your words because you have the experience in medical college.
Agastya cut the call. Varsha laughed and looked into Parvathi's face.
Your husband is a doctor. You are going to be a doctor's wife. Parvathi'e eye lids became heavy. She could not see her brother and friends. She ran into her bedroom again.
5. Ananda Nilayam - Varsha Manjusha conversation
The phone rang again. It was Manjusha. Like the summer river is frozen in winter, the flowing laughter is frozen. "Congratulations on winning the National Sahitya akademy award. I have seen in newspapers" said Manju. "Manju Good news to you. We are going to fix your marriage with Sandeep by tomorrow you should be here" said Bharatavarsha.
"I have joined the job newly. It is difficult to take leave now." said Manjusha. On hearing her voice Malini ran to the phone and took phone from her son." "You are totally spoiled, spoiled beyond measure. Where are you? You don't have the sense to attend national award ceremony, no problem at least you have no time for your own marriag? What job are you doing? Is it more important than marriage? Why did you go away?" Malini couldn't control herself.
Varsha took the phone and listened to what Manju was saying. " You are forcing me to marry the groom you liked. What should I do? " Varsha stopped her " Manju I am Varsha forget about all those things, you need not marry the boy we chose. You can marry whom you loved." said Varsha. " I will come home soon and tell you in person. Tell mother that her daughter will never do anything that brings shame to her and family." Manjusha cut the call.
6. Electronic city- Bangalore
Sandeep was talking to the Inventory manager
who oversees the inventory levels of Raghava Electronics." What
happened there are no new shipments for
three months? The stocks are piling up in godowns! " Sandeep asked him.
Inventory Manager : Yes sir , but Marketing Manager should know it.
Sandeep "Call the Marketing Manager" Sandeep told the attender.
In two minutes the Marketing Manager has come. Raghava also came along with the marketing
manager. They sat in Sandeep's room. Sandeep asked the MM to show the sales figures. The Marketing Manager spread out a sheet on the table. Sandeep was seriously observing the sales figures. They clearly show the dwindling sales. Sandeep showed concern at the performance of the company. Raghava was very happy at Sandeep's involvement.
"Why are the sales going down?" Sandeep asked the Marketing Manager
"When we entered the market we were the only company producing ambience lighting and other gadgets with artificial intelligence. Now they are a dozen companies. The competition is very high. They have their market share. We can not stop them." said the MM
Raghava : We need to reduce the price. We will discuss that in a seperate meeting.
Sandeep : Then why the inventory is piling up ?
Inventory Manager showed the records of daily deliveries, evaluated the pending shipments and said " Our team is working on the old policy. We have not received any instructions from the directors ( Raghava and Sandeep)
Raghava : Will will hold a meeting soon with the production and marketing teams.
After the Marketig and Inventory managers have left Raghava said to Sandeep " First we have to meet and discuss the company's situation. Where is time for you for this company. you are always avoiding my company how can you think of this company.
Sandeep: What do you mean? Did I ever discuss marketing strategies or pricing or inventory policy? You decide inventory and pricing. What is on your mind, tell me directly?
Raghava : You are avoiding me or you isoloted yourself ever since Manjusha stepped in Bangalore. You are spending time for Saanvi. It is causing concern.
Sandeep : I am spending time with her only during parties. I have neither desire nor physical intimacy with Saanvi. I never covet a friend's wife. I am not that type. She is a bit free type. She moves like that with everybody.
Raghava: Okay, leave those things. Bharatavarsha called me and enquired about his sister. They want to get her married. Where does she live? Where does she work?
Sandeep : I know as much as you know.
Raghava: You loved her and she loved you. She came out from her family for her love that means for you. How come you don't know about her. I can't believe. Nobody believes.
Sandeep : It is true that we loved each other. I agree that she left her family to escape matches brought by her mother. Perhaps she came here for her love but after coming here she sought independence - independence from me. For her independence is more important than love. All things happened before you. You are a witness to all these things.
Raghava : I haven't seen everything. I don't know what cold war is going on between you. So many things must have happened between you. So don't make me a witness.
Sandeep : Nothing has happened between us. She hasn't met me after she left.
Raghava: Bharatavarsha will surely come here. Tell him all these things.
7. Elliot Beach - Chennai
Angayar was waiting for Tanya who said that she has a good news and promised a prty. She was waiting at Besant Nagar Ashtalakshmi temple. It was 5.00 PM. There was no trace of her friend. She looked at the temple. It is the temple of 8 Lakshmis (Goddess of prosperity) denoting abundance of basics, wealth, children, courage, victory, food, animals and education. It is not so big (65 ft 45 ft )but so popular because it is built very innovatively. One needs to climb up the stairs to see the eight goddesses. It looks like the petals of Lotus. Angayar looked at the watch again. It is 5.20 PM. Tanya got off the auto and saw Angayar waiting near the cocounut stall.
Tanya: Sorry for the late.
Angayar : I thought you would reach first and wait for me. Since you are free now.
Tanya : I too thought that I would be free after resigning the job.
Angayar : But you became busier instead?
Tanya : I am free without freedom.
Angayar : Tell me what is the good news?
Tanya : I don't tell. I will show you. She showed movie tickets. Angayar's face became dim. "Is it so important to go to cinema now? I came early by taking permission" asked Angayar. "You became a money earning machine. What will you do if you don't watch this movie You want to go and enjoy at home? or go to your company and stitch clothes?
They started walking to Elliot's beach. Elliot's Beach is one of the cleanest and safest beaches in the city towards the south of Marina Beach. They reached a prominent landmark on the beach, the Karl Schmidt Memorial and sat in the sand.
Tanya: We watch the first show. We have time. Feel free, tell me anything you like.
Angayar : Freedom comes with money. If I had money I would not live in a small house. I too would live in a big house like Kumkum and Meenakshi.
Tanya : Kumkum has money, but what money Meenakshi has?
Angayar : Luck. One must have luck or money to enjoy life.
Tanya: Poor Angayar one must have passion or courage, not money or luck. Kumkum has money Meenakshi had luck but neither could enjoy the life.
Angayar : Living in a rich house having money , Isn't it enjoying the life?
Tanya : When you can not get what you want you are not enjoying the life. Kumkum's dream is not using a big car, not living in a big house. You know it. She has a problem with marriage. That's her basic need and dream. She is trying to fulfill it.
Angayar : My dream is buying a rich house. Of course I have the same problem but
Tanya : Don't say dream , say it is your first dream or first goal. After achieving the first goal you will pursue the second goal. The second is inevitable after the first. Kumkum's life is an example.
Angayar : It is miserable her husband is impotent but never stops demanding for children.
Tanya: You both have the same problem.
Angayar: It is unbelieavable but ture.
Tanya: One out of every 10 Indian men is impotent, the incidence could be higher in metros. Nearly 25 out of every 100 patients with Erectile Dysfunction are below 30 years.
Angayar : Come on Lets go to movie. They got up and reached the road. They took taxi and reached Safire theatre in Mount Road. Before the move began Angayar said "It is a kannada movie."
Tanya: It is also a Tamil movie. what is more important is not the cinema but the titles.
Angayar was surprised. She was shocked when She saw Meenaks's name in Titles. She was the music director. Angayar clapped and clapped until several heads turned and several eyes stared."Why so?" asked Angayar. "Clapping for titles is unknown to audience" said Tanya.

9. Lodhi road -India Habitat Centre- New Delhi.
Anti-human trafficking Conference.
The national leverl seminar on Human trafficking began at 11.00 AM in Joseph Stein Auditorium. It is regarded as one of the best auditoria in the whole country due to its state-of-the-art infrastructure. Additonal secretary Ministry of Home affairs, Justice Mohal lal chairperson National Human rights, Minister of Home affairs , Shri Manoharlal Director of Labour welfare, Dr. Loveleen Kacker, Joint Secretary, Department of Women and Child Development, Government of India. Judicial and Prosecution Response Justice Usha Mehra, Former Judge, Delhi High Court were present on the dais.
The conference began with an inaugural address of the Home affairs Minister.
"The most burning and ethical problem faced by today's world is human trafficking. This unjustified trade has become so profitable that it knows no borders. Trafficking takes place inside a nation, state or might involve movement across boundaries. Globally, after drugs and the arms, human trafficking is the third largest organized crime. Each year 700,000 people around the world are being trafficked for labour and sexual exploitation. Around 80% of the human trafficking across the world is done for sexual exploitation." The Home affairs minister explained initiatives taken by the Central Government to check Human trafficking.
National Human Rights Chairperson Aravind Ahluwalia briefly spoke about human rights violation in human trafficking and Director of Labour welfare Mohanlal said that Human trafficking is also done for engaging the bonded labour and organ selling.
Dr. Loveleen Kacker, Joint Secretary, Department of Women and Child Development said that every country in the world is affected by human trafficking. Children make up almost a third of all human trafficking. women and girls comprise 71 per cent of human trafficking victims. Human trafficking is one of the most rampant crimes in a labour surplus and developing country like India. The United Nations has listed India under the Tier II list of countries which have failed to combat trafficking. Thousands of Indians are trafficked everyday to some destination or the other promising good jobs and are forced to lead lives of slavery. They survive in brothels, factories, guesthouses, dance bars, farms and even in the homes.
Home affair joint secretary said that the Ministry of Home Affairs under a Comprehensive Scheme strengthening law enforcement response in India against Trafficking in Persons through Training and Capacity Building has released fund for establishment of Anti Human Trafficking Units for 270 districts of the country. He also explained the other Initiatives by Government against Human Trafficking such as the launch of an anti-human trafficking web portal in February 2014 as an effective way to share information.
The director Natinal Police Academy said
India's Central Bureau of Investigation incorporated anti-trafficking training, by the Interpol Trafficking into its standard curriculum. When he is done with his speech there was a pause. The stage became empty. A 12 year old girl was brought on to the stage by Vivek. Vivek presented the surviour's tale. It was a blood chilling tale of protecting a minor girl from Himachal preadesh. Lakuma was absorbed into the tale. Everybody appreciated Vivek.
The conference ended with a survivour's tale by working group member and Crime investigator Vivek. "How is the conference?" said Vivek flying back to Mumbai.
I thought I have learned so much from your methods and style. I must learn still more. said Lakuma. "You can implement my methods if you like." Said Vivek laying his hand on her thigh. "Shut up ! this is not our bedroom airplane " Lakuma pushed his hand.
Ha hha ha till then you can implement my methods and save Meenakshi.
I have already saved Meenakshi from Arshad Bashir's brother. I checked his advances.
Lakuma slipped into sleep laying head on Vivek's shoulder. The flight lalnded in Mumbai.
10. Vile Parle - Meenakshi Agastya , Lakuma , Basava
When Lakuma reached Meenakshi's flat she was surprised to see Basava and Agastya. Meenakshi was serving them snaks. Agastya was basking in mother's love. Basava seemed tense. " Come on Lakuma, you came at the right time. Sitdown, eat pancakes with coconut chetni." She said. Lakuma refreshed herself in the bathroom and came to the table.
Meenakshi offered four pancakes in a plate. Lakuma started eating and said " How are you Agastya and Basava? We met after a long time. How is life? "
Basava said " Life is a never ending run for men. I am a man"
Lakuma : It is a run for woman too. Man or woman must ran after money.
Basava : Man must run after money and woman too.
Agastya : Like you are falling after Noor.
Basava : All are not as lucky as you for the lady to fall after.
Lakuma : Which lady is falling after Agastya?
Agastya warned Basava with eyes that a disaster breaks loose if he tells. Basava remained silent. but Lakuma was insisting on Basava to tell. Meenakshi said "Children eat first."
Meenakshi served more pancakes to all. Basava is serving coconut chetni. Meenakshi said to Lakuma " Lakuma look at Basava and learn to serve. You are going to get married."
Lakuma Let men serve women Amma. For generations they danced on our heads. Now they are falling after women serving them. It is reasonable and fun if men fall after woman.
Meenakshi understood that Lakuma has Arshad in mind who is falling after Meenakshi. "Lakuma if your man doen't fall after you if others fall after you that is not fun." Lakuma understood that Meenakshi was talking about her husband. "I am sorry Amma. We are going to teach Arshad a lesson. I have a plan. Do you have contacts with Noor? Do you have phone contact with her. Can you call her?" said Lakuma
Meenakshi: Yes, I spoke with her once. Basava also spoke with her without revealing his name but she understood by his voice. I will call her later.
Basava : Hats off Amma you won their confidence and established contact with her.
Meenakshi : They are going to fix her Nikka ( marriage) soon.
Lakuma : No hurry , find out who the groom is. I will tackle him. I have plenty of time till my marriage. I will be here and assist you when you need me.
Agastya: I have no time. I must go to Chennai. I have a job there.!!!
