Chapter 6After reaching the hotel, both freshen up and then all four goes to have dinner. After having the dinner they come back to hotel and goes to sleep in their respective rooms but Chintu's sleep has gone after seeing the girl in the fare.
He takes out the anklet and caress it as if trying to feel her.
Chintu's (ST)- Kuch toh tha uski aankhon mei jo wo mujhse kehna chahti thi..uski uss hasi ke pichhe bhi ek udaasi thi..kya tha wo? Kya mai sahi soch raha hoon ya ye meri imagination hai? Par aaj se pehle maine aisa kabhi mehsoos nahi kiya jaisa maine use dekh kar kiya..but then he smacks his head..Chintu beta tu na uss Tsunami ke saath reh reh kar sach mei pagal ho gaya hai, tu kabse aisi baatein sochne laga? Chal ab soja..and keeping the anklet safely under his pillow he sleeps promising to give it back if they meet again.
While on the other hand, Dolly also goes back to home after giving treat to Lolly and shopping some grocery.
Reaching home she gets busy in the household works and forgets about the fare incident. After having her dinner, she goes back to her room and changes to her night dress. While changing she notices her one of the anklet missing and remembers the fare incident. She had tears in her eyes as these anklets are her mothers last gift to her and due to her foolishness she lost one of them. She takes out the other anklet also and keeps it safe in the Almirah and then goes and starts writing her feelings in her diary. After penning down her feelings she feels lil relieved and goes and lays on her bed but cant able to sleep because of the guilt but at last her eye lids closes automatically due to tiredness.Morning
Chintu and Ketaki again goes to fare along with Chacha-Chachi after having their breakfast. Ketaki and Chacha-Chachi were shopping but Chintu's eyes were searching the girl in order to give back her anklet or is that he wants to see her once . He searches the whole fare but doesn't find her and getting disappointed comes back to the three and asks them to make a move as its lunch time. They were crossing the ghaat when his eyes falls on her and he finds her lil upset maybe because of her anklet. Then he looks at her side and finds the same girl who dragged her yesterday with her and today seems like she is trying to cheer her up.
In trance, he starts walking towards them but was stopped by Ketaki.
Ketaki- Bhai..Wahan kahan ja rahe ho?
Chintu- Huhh..umm..kahin nahi bas aise hi..
Ketaki- Aap thik ho na? Kal se aap khoye-khoye se lag rahe ho? Kahin aapne mere liye bhabhi toh nahi dhund li..she teases him.
Chintu- Haan..mai bilkul thik hoon..aur tu na apne dimag ke ghode zara kam duadaya kar..samjhi?..he warns her.
Ketaki- Samjhi..ab chalo.
Chintu- Haan..saying he once looks at her direction and finds the place empty, sighing he goes to have lunch.Night
All were settled in one room and having their dessert when Ketaki asks Chacha ji.
Ketaki- Chachu Lathmar Holi kya hoti hai?
Chacha- Beta Lathmar Holi bhi ek tarah ki holi hai par Mathura mein alag tarah se kheli jaati hai and he explains how it is played.
Ketaki- Wow..phir toh bahot maza aata hoga na.
Chacha- Haan beta..mera ek dost Mathura ka hi tha aur wo toh bahot tareef karta tha..baaki toh hum khud experience karke hi bata sakte hain.
Ketaki- Toh der kis baat ki hai..hum bhi chalte hai na dekhne.
Chintu- Oye..zyada uchhalne ki zarurat nahi hai..hum kahin nahi ja rahe hain.
Ketaki- Kyu??Aapko har chize ke liye mana karna zaruri hai.
Chintu- Haan kyunki tu apni masti ke chakkar mei apna bilkul bhi dhyaan nahi rakhti hai..tujhe pata hai na ki tujhe bheegne se kitni jaldi zukaam hota hai?
Ketaki- Par bhai..
Chintu- No bhai-wai..
She then turns towards Chacha ji with a baby face in order to melt him and he melts.
Chacha- Chintu beta..tum fikar mat karo..kal toh sirf Lathmar holi hai jo sirf dekhni hoti hai..rango ki holi toh kuch din baad kheli jayegi..toh hum ja sakte hain dekhne..he convinces him.
Chacha- Thik hai Chachu aap keh rahe hain toh hum chalenge.
Ketaki- Yayy..thanku bhai thanku Chachu.Next day, they goes to see Lath Mar holi (holi in which people hit with sticks). It is one of the famous holi in India celebrated in the neighbouring towns of Mathura: Nand Gaon and Barsana associated with Radha and Krishna.
It is believed that Lord Krishna visited his beloved Radha's village on this day and playfully teased her and her friends. Taking offence at this, the women of Barsana chased him away.
Following the same ritual, dressed in colourful clothes, the women of Barsana playfully beat men from the neighbouring Nand gaon village with lathis, while the men try to protect themselves with shields. The second day mens from Barsana go to Nandgaon to play holi with women at Nandgaon.
It is celebrated a few days before the actual Holi in the neighbouring towns of Barsana and Nandgaon near Mathura in the state of Uttar Pradesh. In the sprawling compound of the Radha Rani temple in Barsana, thousands gather to witness it.

All were enjoying the Holi but Chintu's eyes were searching that girl.Jagdamba Nivas
Nani- Panna ji..jaldi kariye der ho rahi hai.
Nana- Aa raha hoon Jagdambe.
Nana- Ab ye Krishna beta kahan reh gaya?
Krishna- Mai yahan hoon Nani.
Nani- Acha hua tum aa gaye..ab tumhare Nana ji bhi aa jaaye phir nikalte hain.
Nana- Mai bhi aa gaya..saying he sees everywhere.
Nani- Ab kise dhund rahe hain aap?
Nana- Dolly ko..wo bhi toh chalegi humare saath.
Krishna- Wo kya karegi wahan aa kar?
Nana- Ye kaisa sawal hai Krishna? Jo tum karoge wahi wo bhi karegi..he snaps at him.
Nani- Wo nahi aa rahi hai.
Nani- Uski tabiyat thik nahi hai toh humne use mana kar diya aur saath-saath ghar bhi dekh legi wo.Listening this Nana goes to Dolly's room and finds her standing near the window.
Nana- Dolly beta kya hua tumhe?
Dolly- Kuch nahi Nana ji bas thoda sar dard hai.
Nana- Toh beta yahan kyu khadi ho? Aram karo..mai yahi hoon tumhare saath.
Dolly- Nahi-nahi..aap chale jayiye..mai manage kar lungi..aap meri vajah se apna program cancel mat kijiye.
Nana- Par beta..
Dolly- Please Nana ji..[B]
[B]Nana- Thik hai..feeling dejected he leaves half heartedly.
After he is gone, she cries hiding her face in the pillow remembering her parents.On reaching the place, where all were enjoying the Holi, Nani's eyes were roaming all over the place.
Krishna- Nani..aap kisi ko dhund rahi ho kya?
Nani- Tumhare jija ji ko.
Krishna- Jija ji toh Pandit ji ko dhundne hai.
Nani- Pandit ji se toh rishta dhunda nahi ja raha toh humne socha hum hi kuch jatan karle.
Nani- Matlab yeh ki Mathura ki mashhur Holi dekhne ke liye dur shehro se log aate hain. Toh humne socha ki koi acha sa ladka pasand karke hum hi kuch baat aage badha lete hain..isse hume humare mutabik ladka bhi mil jayega aur uss ladki se chhutkara bhi..and smirks.
Krishna- Wah Nani..maan gaya aapko..kya dimag lagaya hai.
Nani- Chalo ab tum bhi humari madad karo apne jija ji dhundne mein.
Krishna- Haan-haan kyu nahi..aakhir saale ka bhi toh faayda hoga jija ji ki vajah se..both laughs evilly and starts searching for their prey.
