he made us sit in this hotel, and went to pick up Seher where do such things happen?
this is weird though but mother, do talk with Seher about, what we are here for, from Hyderabad have you gone mad … we couldn’t go to Seher’s house to meet her
and you are thinking about staying in her house just forget about this … and don’t talk about this with Seher you know that, in what circumstances we got married that’s why, we both have not told anything to my family we are waiting for the right time … by god’s will … after some time I mean, within some days we will tell everything to my family this is mine, and Seher’s mutual decision am I right, Seher? yes … son, If you don’t mind … can I speak to Seher in private for a while? aunty, whatever you want to say… you can speak in front of Zamin No, no … it’s ok I will go … you can talk tell me the truth, Seher … what is all this? why you both are hiding your marriage? aunty, whatever Zamin has told you… is the truth you are not saying this, under any pressure? no, aunty … you, don’t have to get worried for me how I cannot get worried? I had promised your late Father I will take care of you, like my daughter that’s why I came here to meet you… and to see you only that was not a marriage … you also know this my marriage was fixed with someone else which couldn’t happen then Zamin came there and our marriage was done, accidentally aunty, we don’t even know each other at all father, forcefully entered me into Zamin’s life is his attitude, bad with you? does he irritate you? or annoy you? aunty, Zamin is very nice …. very nice … but this guilt feeling, is eating me from inside that I have entered into someone’s life, forcefully Zamin has never thought of getting married to me nor I had thought aunty, may be you cannot feel the intensity of this pain from which I’m going through I’m being asked to enter into his life, forcefully I wish, I had some other option
I would have stopped uncle Waqar we both shouldn’t have got married don’t say like this, child … how many days have barely passed, since you have got married? give some time to each other I feel Zamin is very obedient & great boy aunty, Zamin is good … but I guess you are unable to understand, what I’m saying child, I’m understanding everything you never even came to my house uninvited I know, your ego is hurt because of this marriage but daughter, now, the marriage is already done no one can bring back times, bygone I will say this again to you you should give some time to Zamin … if someone will ask you at home, that where did you go?
then what you’ll answer them? don’t know …
you tell me … what shall I tell you? what is in that bag? aunty Shamsa, has given some gifts for both of us for god’s sake, let this bag stay in the car… don’t take it along with you if somebody sees this in your hand, they will start asking questions I’ll give it to you later do you know that the biggest drawback of lying is … if it is said in the morning, then it is forgotten in the evening… and if it is said in the evening, then it gets changed in the morning but, I’ve not lied to you Munazzah … your husband was praising her niece, a lot in front of Iftikhar now you stay witness… I have done nothing now this girl, is determined to destroy all those praises why did you lied to sister-in-law, that you don’t have a mobile? no, no … I haven’t said this to her I had told her, that my phone is broken you had lied about this as well … your phone rings you also talk with someone… and that too keeping it secret from us tell us, whose that… to whom do you talk? and to whom you have gone to meet? say it … who is that boy? aunty… please don’t say such things one minute … first of all, remember… I’m not your aunty
she is your aunty her husband brought you here and because of him, you are staying in my house till now Seher, what is all this?
your phone was broken, right? then how did it get repaired? and when you left the house, why didn’t you inform anyone? why you didn’t seek permission from someone? Umm … uncle Waqar, got my phone repaired Uh… where did you go? and to meet whom? to Shamsa aunty … she came here along with her daughter she wanted to come to the house, to meet me but, to call her here, I don’t feel alright …
that’s why … in order to say no to her, I had to go out of the house, helplessly I don’t accept … you are lying till yesterday, on this planet earth, you have got no one and today, at once… from where your this aunty appeared? yes? along with her daughter … she lives in Hyderabad is she your real aunty? she use to live in our neighborhood neighbors … and she loves you that much, that in order to meet you, and to see you.. she came to Karachi? if you are so dear to your that aunty, then what are you doing here? why you didn’t stayed with her? me… uncle Waqar has brought me here along with him Munzaah, this is all Waqar’s doing …. Zamin … you …. when did you come? just now … then why are you standing ?
sit sit Munazzah …. we were just talking like that you go from here I’ll come back aunty, after changing oh God! in which difficulty you have placed me in how can someone place such a bad allegation on me? If I tell the truth then I will become bad, in front of Zamin & uncle Waqar and if I stay quiet then aunty Rabia’s hatred *door knocks* Hareem … Hareem please tell your mother, that I went to meet aunty Shamsa I didn’t go to meet someone else … I’m not lying
Shh …. I am here …
you don’t worry I will talk to her… alright? don’t get worried what are you thinking? I have never seen this face of aunty, ever before because Seher is here, so all the buried matters are raised again, which were untouched since past many years but mother, this is extreme it is … but what can be done? your aunty is like this I become worried, after seeing all this yes, I’m also worried after seeing all this
but … there is no solution of this problem what do you mean, mother, that there is no solution? you go and make her understand …talk to her I had tried a lot to make her understand but in return, she put allegation on me allegation! which allegation? leave it… it is my suggestion to you
you stay out of Seher’s matter mother, I never say anything in any of the house matters aunty, is treating her like a servant she is making her do, all house chores but … by making her criminal, and asking strict questions from her, and to do her character assassination all this, is not right what happened? why are looking at me like this? I’m seeing, that you are thinking a lot about Seher why are you speaking a lot, in her favor I was just talking in general look son, you have talked about this in front of me … but never talk about such thing, in front of your aunty Rabia why? because you are her, only to be son-in-law if she get any doubt for you… then it will not be better for anyone either not yours… not mine … or for your father’s are you getting, what I’m saying? mother, Seher is not that kind of a girl do you know she is educated?
she has done B.A (Bachelors in Arts) I’m thinking… to make that girl sit, and decorate her like a showpiece on the rack, in the drawing room and then I restrict you all, to greet her while roaming around I wasn’t saying that, mother neither, I’m saying anything… I’m just glad … that a girl who came from another city, who doesn’t even know about the roads of this city, nor she knows anything about his city..but … but still, she goes from the house without informing anyone, or seeking permission from anyone and she come back home, without facing any difficulty of routes there is no achievement of the girl, in this it can be only a miracle of God she had informed me, mother in fact, I arranged the car for her that’s why I’m saying … you shouldn’t have done all this to her she should have told me at that time when me & Munazzah, was asking from her mother, I had told her not to take my name… in front of you and that poor girl in order to save me… she keep on listening to you, quietly alright, stop defending her.. and go from here go … *phone ringing* Hello!
