ShivOmru dance with few ladies, while holding up the babies in carrier. Itti si hasi….plays….. They smile. The ladies leave the balloons in air. Rudra asks the lady to be careful. The lady says sorry, I was getting dizzy, I couldn’t sleep since three nights because of my baby. Rudra asks why. She says my baby sleeps all day and stays awake all night. Another lady says my baby troubles me a lot, see how much he is crying, I wish I didn’t had children. Rudra says please I don’t want to become Papa, I need to talk to Bhavya. He shouts Bhavya on coming home.
Bhavya asks are you fine. Rudra says yes, I don’t want it. She asks what. He says I m not ready for it. She asks for what. He says I know you are pregnant. They ask what. Shivaye says sorry it came out this way, congrats. Gauri
says congrats and hugs Bhavya. Bhavya asks what’s this joke. Rudra says you are pregnant. She says I m not pregnant, who told you. He says you were feeling nauseous, dizzy and wanted to have something sour. She says I had low BP, I had done much exercise. He says Dadi told me. Dadi asks what did I say. Rudra says you told me about good news and sung a song too. Dadi says I was pulling your leg. Rudra says I would have got a heart attack, it means there is no tension, people won’t call me uncle, Bhavya you gave me much happiness. He hugs them. Dadi beats him. Gauri says he has gone mad. Dadi says people used to get happy on becoming a father, now things have changed, he is happy on not becoming a father. Shivaye says thank God, he is saved, he got scared and scared us too.
Gauri asks why did you get scared. Shivaye says child is a big responsibility, I haven’t thought of becoming a father, Rudy is younger to me, if anyone tells me I m going to become a father, I don’t know how will I react. Anika asks why, don’t you want to have a child. Shivaye says I don’t think so, I don’t want to have a child. They get shocked. Anika says not now or never. He says I don’t know, I m not sure. Dadi asks why, child is imp after marriage. He asks why. She says then your family will get complete, who will manage this empire. Gauri says yes, children are blessing of Lord, its big happiness to become mum, don’t you want to give happiness to Anika. Shivaye says I will talk to Anika in private. Anika says no, I just want to know about it. He says I will talk to you later. Dadi asks why not now, I want to know what’s in your mind, I wish to play with your child, think of Pinky and her wishes, she would like to see your child, what will people say, that Shivaye has no children.
Shivaye says this is the reason, this 4 table, this is it, what will four people say. Rudra asks who are these four people taking an interest in our life. Om says its a saying, four people mean the world, outsiders, general public. Shivaye asks who are these four people, will they decide, shall we have kids if they want kids. He says Anika, we can’t live our way just because of the people, we forget what we want. Gauri says society has some rules, its not wrong, rules are to make life easy, children are next step after marriage. He says just because this is next step, so Anika and I shall have kids, I feel a child should come in a couple’s life when they are ready to take the responsibility. Dadi says I don’t understand. Anika says I understood, it means he doesn’t want to have a child. He stops her and says wait a second, maybe you didn’t understand well, or maybe I wasn’t able to explain well, let me explain all of this in detail, please sit.
They get seated. He says we shall start from starting, just imagine. Rudra says my imagination can get wild. Shivaye says when a baby is born, three categories put pressure on him, long distance relatives, they aren’t related to our lives, second category, that four people, who are they, does anyone know them, no identity, we just hear about them, no one has seen their faces, third category, tv and films, this is a group which decided criteria for society, perfect son, bahu and etc, people say tv and films are a mirror of society, but it has dirt over it, I will tell you the affect of these categories on my life, you know when I was born, I was free like a free bird, but these three categories took an entry in my life to make me know my responsibilities, I felt they are right, so I danced on their fingers. He sings Papa kehte hai…. and dances.
Anika and everyone look on. Relatives group say he is Kalyani’s grandson, he has to get educated, he will name the family proud. Four people category say you can’t become a doctor, you have to take the business ahead, you are son of Oberois, you will take the company to new heights. Shivaye says I left my dream of becoming a doctor because of people’s opinion, I went to Cambridge to get my degree to manage Oberoi empire, then I took the company to new heights, but pressure didn’t end here, I got successful in business, then a new pressure started. He sings Zarurat hai…. Everyone smiles. Rudra claps. Shivaye says no for marriage, I just finished my studies. The relatives group comment that he isn’t marrying, does he have any weakness, poor Kalyani, she won’t be able to see Shivaye’s marriage before dying, why doesn’t Pinky explain her son, if he doesn’t marry, how will the family go ahead. Four people category comments… first degree, then job and then the girl….. This is the next step.
Shivaye says thanks to all of them, I felt I should get married, then Anika came in my life. He gets Anika in arms. They see Anika with him and act surprised. Rudra says guys, its just imagination…. Shivaye says and then, after many problems and difficulties, we came together, we are very happy together, but there is a new pressure again. The people sing yashoda ka nandlal….. and dance around them. Relatives group comment that Shivaye and Anika should have a child now, if you delay, it will be a problem later, poor Kalyani, how much will she wait to see your child. Four people category comment… why are Shivaye and Anika not having a child, maybe Anika has some weakness, is she infertile, they are so rich, why don’t they get treatment from a good doctor. Shivaye says this is the pressure, we both didn’t discuss about child, we are happy together, we are discussing this today as we had to, they think we have a problem, people don’t live but fill a form, like tick marking degree, career, marriage, child… tick tick… if we get in pressure and have a child, child won’t be wanted by us, it will be just to keep customs of the world. They get a child and dance. Mere ghar aai ek nanhi pari….plays….
Shivaye asks can we stop the song, we have a child now. Relatives category comment again…. Just one child, the child will feel lonely, you should have one more child. Four people category comment… Girl will go to others’ house, you should have a son, how will Oberoi empire run without a son, who will take the family ahead. Shivaye gets a baby boy in arm. Haste haste…..plays……….. Shivaye and Anika try to manage the kids. Shivaye nearly loses balance. Everyone gets worried….
Gauri asks how can you snatch the motherly feeling and happiness from Anika. Shivaye says I just want to say, we should have a child when we both want, its not easy, society romanticize parenthood, motherhood…. its not true what’s shown in tv and films, when a child is born, everything changes, even the relation of one becoming parents.
