nitin and komal:
after drinking road side sugarcane juice komal walked in to a big shopping mall along with nitin.she went to a ready made garment shop, and quickly selected few fancy dresses for her.
komal:'look at this...is this colour is good..?'she selected a light purple with white design top and showed it to nitin.
komal:'check this.. will it suit me...?'she took another ladies wear, put it on her shoulder and asked him.
nitin:'ok...'he said with out interest.
komal:'do you like this...?'she took a short skirt and showed him.
nitin:'ummm....'he said with out looking at the skirt.
'omg.....maibhi na..... bahins (bufflo) kay saam ne rangoli mana rahi hun...'she said to herself and slapped on her forehead.she selected few more items without asking further suggestions from nitin and came out of the shop.
komal:'chalo ab we will go to red fort...'she came out of the shop and drew to red fort.
they were nearing red fort.
nitin:'there is red fort in Agra too.isn't it?... what is the difference between that red fort and this Delhi red fort?.....'
komal:'omg...i don't know all those things...'she parked her car out side the red fort.
komal:'i hope you will not get lost in side the red fort...'she teased him.
nitin:' if you are that much worried about me you can hold my hand...'he said without smiling.
both got down.he raised his head and looked at the outer structure of the red fort.'wow! it should be one of the master piece of delhi...'he wondered looking at the brilliant architecture of it.
look at the delhi red fort outer look!
they walked in.even though komal lives in delhi , she was visiting red fort after so many years.she use to come with school NCC for doing parade during independence day and see Prime Minister addressing the nation.

komal:'do you know nitin?...yahi ground mai....we use to come and do parade...'her school days memory made her excited.she re winded all those sweet memories.
nitin:'tum yahin pali badi hona.?..chalo....you are my guide now...'
komal:...thaykho...i am weak in history....any way i will try....'
komal:'waise tum kose london mai pale bade ho?...tum bhi tho yahin kay ho...'
nitin:'i am proud to be an indian....you come to sarangpur.... i will take you to the nook and corner of it...'
while talking and walking they went inside the fort and saw other parts of it .
komal:'i think this red fort was constructed by the mughal emperor shah jahan....'
nitin:' shah jahan! the one who constructed Taj Mahal to his love Mumtaz!....wow....i love that man ...'
nitin:'when he constructed this? before Taj Mahal or after it?'
komal:'...in 17th century....'
they moved on to Diwan -Aam.

komal:' this is the assembly hall of public where the emperor use this hall to address the general public and dispense justice based on the petitions presented by this ministers..... phew!' felt as if she was revising her grade 10 history.
nitin:'wow....look at the architecture!....let me count the pillars....'
komal:'keep counting ...i am going....' she moved on to Diwan-i-Khas. nitin came running behind her.
nitin:'nahi tho!...jane do...waise... this is going to be one of my honeymoon spot...i will count them with my wife....'
Diwan-i-Khas close up view!
komal:'Diwan-i-Khas was used by the emperor for the reception of important guests such as kings, ambassadors and nobles in private and to deal with important affairs of the state....' she explained to him.
nitin:' wonderful! how many years it took for him to construct?...'
komal:'you find out on your own when you come here for your honeymoon...'
komal:...they moved on to Nahr-i-Behisht!
komal:'Nahr-i-Behisht are the imperial private apartments...that is all i know about this...'
now they were standing in front of moti masjid or pearl mosque!
from out side!
nitin:'obviously the place where the emperor prays......no need for you to guide...'
both of them became tired of walking.komal's legs and head started hurting.
komal:'enough.....we will go now...i am tired...'she said to nitin.
nitin:'yep..it is going to rain too......by the way thanks for every thing...'
komal:'fine......'they came out of red fort.
it was drizzling.they were heading towards the parking, but komal could not walk fast.
nitin:'walk fast...jaldi chalo...'
komal:'i cannot...'she was really cannot.she was walking far behind of nitin.it started raining too.
nitin turned back and looked at her struggling for walking.he moved a step behind and hold her right wrist with his left hand to help her walk fast.she did not refuse , she needed that support .nitin walked fast towards the car holding her hand almost dragging,she tried her best to follow him.
