Setting of the scene: Its been a month since the wedding both Sagaar and Vidya are happy but the sister-in-laws aren't. Sagaar is away at the fields and won't be back till much later. Sindoora's (the older of the two sister-in-laws) husband is in Dubia and he has sent her money, again today.
Sindoora: Vediya, go clean the kicthen. I have to go to the bank and depoist the money my husband sent me. See my husband, has an high paying office job unlike your well educated husband. First he wasted my husbands money on going to college and now he barely earns enough to feed the two of you. Pathetic.
Vediya, pretending not to hear anything other then go clean the kitchen: I well go clean the kitchen.
Sindoora: And vediya please throw that ugly rug away. You know, the one you made for kitchen. I am going to go buy a new one on my way back from the bank.
Vediya goes to the kitchen cleans it and makes dinner for everybody. When shes done with the kitchen work she grabs the rug she so lovingly made and heads outside to throw it in the trash. On her way out she passes her other pregnant sister-in-law, who smirks at her when she sees the rug. That reminds Vediya of when she made it and her mother-in-law had mention how nobody else in the house knew who to sew or knit or make rugs and how mad her SIL (sister-in-laws) had looked. She let out a sigh and kept walking towards the trash can. She is about to throw it in the trash can when she admires it one more time.
Vediya: My best work yet.
With that she was about to throw it away, when someone grabbed her hand......
Sagaar: How can you throw that rug away?
Vediya: Sindoora told me she was buying a new one....
Sagaar: I don't care what anybody told you, that rug is going to stay in the kicthen and thats that.
Vediya: I don't want any unnecessary arguments because of me. Its not like this rug is that good or anything.
Sagaar: Its not about the rug but the prinicpal of things, the rug is staying.
With that Sagaar grabs the rug and takes it back inside and Vediya follows quietly. The SIL gives them unevil look and goes to her room. Sagaar puts the rug back where it belongs and turns to Vediya.
Sagaar: I have to go back to the farm to do some work. I just come home for dinner.
Vediya: I well lay dinner and you can eat. So, how long are you going to be gone?
Sagaar: I am going to be gone about half the night, sorry.
Vediya: its okay
Vediya serves dinner and Sagaar eats and leaves. Slowly all the members of the house, except Sagaar get togather to eat. Vediya serves everyone and then goes to wash the dishes. After she has done all the work, she sits down to eat.
Sindoora: Why are you eating now? Did you remember to give Mother-in-law her medicines? You know you are a lazy girl.
Vediya: I gave MIL her medicines, and finished all the work.
Sindoora, looks around the kitchen and notices the rug: I thought I told you to throw that hideous thing away?
Sindoora grabs it off the floor to throw it away and ....
