It was 1:30 when they reached there and everyone spent their time roaming around looking at the small stalls buying a few things to take back home to Ambala. They didn't have much time to explore the market, as they had to reach the palace by 3:30. After buying some small souvenirs and handicraft items, everyone set off for the palace, delighted with the wonderful sightseeing trip they had. Back at the palace, they had ample time to freshen up before leaving to finish shopping. The cars were a little delayed, so everyone sat around in the main hall talking about the tour.
"Mera toh inbox full ho gaya hai; bahut mazaa aaya…" Pooja said.
"Haan, Jodhpur bahut hi sundar jagah hai…" Ali commented.
"It sure is, and we took so many pictures, I can't wait to upload them on the laptop. Maybe we could use a picture from the trip for something." Yudi said excitedly.
"Abbey Yudiye, tujhe apne laptop ke siway kuch soojhta bhi hai ya nahi?" Huda said.
"Shaane…" Aalekh began but Neelu stopped him.
"Aalekh, relax. Bro, tum Huda ki baaton par dhyaan mat do… Sherry bata rahi thi ki kaise Huda baar baar tour pe ussi ke saath chipak ke chal raha tha…"
"Bechaari Sherry, woh toh Huda ke Hudagiri se pareshaan ho gayi hogi… hum dono ko itni acchi tarah se jaante bhi nahi hai… aur abhi se itna…." Sameera said.
"Yeh socho ki humaara haal kya hota hoga Sameera" Naina said, coming over from her conversation with her brother and sitting with her friends. "Huda toh kitne saalon se humein tang kar raha hai… par shayad is baar woh Sherry ke baare mein thoda zyada serious hai…"
"Haan Naina, sahi keh rahi hai…" Neelu said. "Sherry itni bhi pareshaan nahi hui hai; I think ki usse Huda mein interest hai…"
"Kisko Huda mein interest hai?" Rajveer said joining in.
"Uhh… koi nahi Raj… dekho gaadiyan aa gayi hai… chale?" Naina said quickly.
The topic about Huda and Sherry was left hanging for the moment as everyone got up and left for shopping. Unlike last time, the group went to another mall to check out the different varieties of clothes and accessories. All the boys who had missed the shopping trip had to get their clothes; the girls had to buy some jewelry before going to find clothes for the engagement.
Once they all reached the mall, the girls dragged the boys to a shop and began fussing about as to who should buy what. Rajveer, Ali, Aalekh and Navin were lucky since they had finished their set of shopping beforehand with the girls, the others were not so lucky.
"I think that this will look good." Sherry said handing a sherwani for Abhimanyu to try on.
"Huda, tu yeh try kar…" Pooja said.
"Yeh acchi hai, Yudi, why don't you try it on?' Shalini said.
"Gunny, try this one… no wait, yeh zyada accha hai…" Roma said.
And so for about 20-30 minutes, Abhimanyu, Huda, Yudi and Gunny were stuck in the store trying on different types of sherwani's, kurta pyjamas, formal shirts; poor boys. The shop they were in also had ladies outfits. Sherry and Sameera needed to find something plain and simple to wear; they had bought their clothes already, but needed some for daily wear. They were really exhausted from the tour, so they decided to ask Huda and Yudi to help them.
