Gunjan:Yes.I'm Manav's ex-wife.
Chandni:Are you joking?
G:No,it's not a joke.I'm serious.
Devyani:Why did you divorce him?Maybe like me you also must have got bored of the unromantic married life.You and Manav are busy with business.No time for each other.How can the marroage work?
G:We had a different reason to split.
D:What is that?
G:I was in Nainital orphanage.Orphans have no right to dream of marriage.Who will marry an orphan who does'nt know anything about her own birth?But Manav was willing to marry me.Our head mother was happy about that and she told me that i'mlucky to get a man like Manav in my life.I dreamt a lot about my life with Manav.
The head mother gives a red lehenga and ornaments to Gunjan.
She:Usually orphans get married in a simple manner.But Manav wants you to look grand on the wedding though the wedding is simple.So he requested me to hand over the wedding dress and ornaments to you.
She:You are lucky.That's why Manav chose you from the girls he saw here.
Gunjan wears the red lehenga and ornaments for the wedding.She feels secure and confident when Manav ties mangalsuthra around her neck.
Gunjan sits on the bed like a shy bride.When Manav enters the room,she craves to look at his face.But she is too shy for that.
Manav sits near her and looks at her face.She is nervous as well as happy.
He realizes that.
M:Don't be nervous Manav.It's me.Not a stranger.
Gunjan lifts her eyes slowly and looks at him.There is a sweet smile on her face.
G:Thank you for accepting me as your wife.If you had'nt married me,i would have lived the rest of my life as a spinster.
G:No one marries girls from orphanages.You are great.
M:I'm not great Gunjan.You are mistaking me.
G:You are very down to earth.
M:There is a reason for marrying you.
She looks at his face seriously.
M:I was in love with Soniya.
She is shocked.
M:My ex-girl friend.She deserted me when her parents found a richer guy for her when my business started falling.I managed to bring success again.My bisiness is going well now.I want to take a sweet revenge on Soniya.I want to make her jealous.That's why i married.
Gunjan is shocked.
She thinks:The person i considered as my Pati Parameshwar does'nt love me.This marriage is only a drama to take revenge on his ex-girl friend.I'm such a big fool.A girl like me don't have the right to dream of marriage.Still i dreamt.That was my biggest mistake.
She feels that her head is spinning.
M:Please Gunjan..Please help me.You will help me.right?
She nodded her head.
M:I knew that you are sweet enough to help me.At the first sight itselfi understood that.That's why i chose you from all other girls in the orphanage.This is a contract marriage.Only for 5 months you have to stay with me.I have arranged the divorce papers.
He showed the divorce papers to her.
She thinks:Divorce before marriage?Marriage is a game?
M:You can sign now itself.We will give it to the court later..after i get what i aimed for.
He signs the paper.
M:I signed it.Now you sign.
She feels that Manav is pricking her heart.She tries her best not to cry before him.
She signs the divorce paper.Her fingers were shivering while signing.
M:Thanks a lot for understanding my condition.I promise that i will choose the best guy for you.
Gunjan is numb.His words fall on her deaf ears.
The next morning...
Gunjan brings coffee for Manav.Manav had just woken up from the bed.
He grins:Manavji?Call me Manav.I prefer that.
He takes the coffee and sits on the sofa.
M:You also sit Gunjan.
Gunjan sits near him.
He sips coffee.
M:Did you drink coffee?
G:I don't feel like drinking tea.
Suddenly he sees the clock.
M:Oh!Time goes so fast.I have to get ready for the meeting.
He keeps the tea on the table and runs to dress up.
G:You drink finish drinking coffee.It was bad?
M:Not at all.It was very nice.But i have no time.Sorry Gunjan.
He goes to the bathroom.
Gunjan looks at the coffee.She takes the cup and drinks coffee from it.
Manav's sister Rupali sees it and smiles:Gunjan bhabhi drinks coffee from Manav bhaiyya's cup.So romantic.
