maan runs out of the post office, gets in his car and drives towards the post office near his home. he reaches the
post office, runs towards the PO box section, searches for no.39. finds and and stands infront of it. he takes a
few deep breathes, calms himself down. he takes out the key from his pocket and slowly moves towards the lock,
praying it opens. he puts the key inside and turns it, it clicks and the lock opens. he sighs with satisfaction. he
opens the door. he finds a letter with a small fish toy inside. he is confused to see the fish, he wonders, what it
means. he takes the letter and the toy out. he smiles looking at it, and locks the PO box. he slowly walks towards
the exit, seeing the letter and the fish. he doesnt realise that GEET is watching all his actions. she grins looking at him
satisfied and mutters to herself " i so love u maan, i cant wait any longer but i have to take this in a steady
way". she is hinding behind the pillar and looking towards maan, and suddenly pari taps on her back and asks
pari: arey geet tu yahan kaise??? and why are u hiding???(isko bhi, abhi aana tha???)
geet in shock, clasps pari's mouth with her hand and hides behind the wall nearby. maan suddenly turns towards
the pillar after hearing to pari's words. he doesnt see anyone there, he nods his head and leaves the post office.
geet leaves out a big sigh and smacks pari on her head.
pari: owww....geet!!! mujhe kyun maar rahi hai???(aur nahi tho kya teri pooja karegi???)
geet: tumhe common sense tho hai nahi.....aise kyun chilla rahi thi???
pari: arey maine kahan chillaya??? i ws talking in my regular tone.(tera normal tone hi kaafi hai logon ko daraane ke liye!!! uff!!!)
geet: yeah right?! mujhe daraya kyun??? dikh nahi raha tha ki mai kuch kar rahi thi???(kahan tha na...)
pari: mujhe kya pathatha??? aur waise tu uss ladke ko kyun dekh rahi thi???
geet: woh...woh...main bas...
pari: arey bathana...
geet: woh ladka mera peecha kar rahatha iss liye main yahan chupi hui thi.(chal jhooti)
pari: kya??? tu mujhe bol dethi, main uski achchi khabar lathi.(haan kyun hai, tu pehlwaan jo hai...tu tho hawa main udd jayegi. apna size dekha hai kabhi???)
geet: haan haan patha hai mujhe, issliye nahin bathaya maine tujhe.
geet: wasie tu yahan kya kar rahi hai???
pari: arey woh papa ne mujhe yaha bheja tha. unka kuch letters post karne the...

geet:chal baahar chalthe, mujhe bhook lag rahi hai, kuch khaana khaathe hai.(waise mujhe bhi bhook lag rahi hai aur maa bhi ghar pe nahi hai)
pari: mujhe bhi chalo...chalthe hain....
they both come out of the post office and get into geet's car and move towards the nearby restaurant.
meanwhile, maan drives back to KC. maan enters his cabin and sits on his chair....adi knocks on his door.
maan: come in.
adi: sir, kuch mila po box main???
maan: haan adi, mila....waise tumhaare group ko kehdo ki yeh teen dino jho bhi hua, woh kabhi kisi doosre ko patha

adi: yes sir, main abhi jaatha hun.
maan: ok fine....u can leave now!!!
maan was both surprised and happy to hear that his daadu was here. he looks at the letter and the toy, he decides
to read it at home and keeps both of them in his locker and continues with his work. meanwhile in the restaurant,
geet and pari are busy chatting and eating....
geet: tu kahan gaayab ho gayi thi???
pari: main kahan jaungi??? ghar par hi thi....
geet: oh really??? dont lie to me pari....

pari: dekh geet, main jahaan bhi gayi thi par mera cell mere paas hi tha. tune kabhi phone hi nahi kiya mujhe.
geet: pari phir se jhoot????
they start arguing like small kids until the waiter of the hotel comes and requests them not to shout. they both
look at him with innocent faces and look aorund the hotel only to find evryone of them staring in bewilderment at
them. they both get embarassed, they turn to each other slowly and finall laugh at the scene. the ppl around get
cofused and come to conclusion that these 2 are mad. after that pari and geet chat for a long time abt that guy.
pari confesses that she has a crush on him and geet starts teasing her. they both finish their lunch peacefully and
move to their car.
geet leaves pari to her home and heads towards home wondering when her marriage will happen
but realises that there is a lot of work to be done before that. she remembers maan and smiles closing her eyes
lost in her thoughts. geet never showed any interest in guys during her college days. she was ofcourse the most
bubbly and beautiful girl in the college but yet she stayed away from much of the love hussle. all she wanted was
to concentrate on her studies. it was her aim to top the batch. architecture always fantasised her. it was like she
always had lived thru it all her life. no wonder she topped it. love was distant emotion for her. no matter how many
boys proposed her including some of the juniors, she had least bothered. coming to the present scenario, she dint
understand as to how she fell for MAAN??? out of all the ppl, why MAAN??? she had no answers yet for qns like
these. she was just a love sick puppy now. she thought she would understand only when she understands maan
completely or may be this is what GOD had wanted, she dint know but she would wait. wait until she found out
answers to her qns. she was so lost that she dint realise that she had reched home. she broke away from her
dream land only when the driver called out to her.
precap: who knows??? abhi thinking chaaloo hai
