Read My Daughter’s Facebook(play)—part 1 before proceeding
Boy—So what else does sapna like
Lady: Ohh she is a very multitalented girl, she loves to dance,paint and sings very well. She even uploaded some songs on youtube
Boy: Thats nice, would love to hear it someday
Lady: sure, I will send you the address
Lady: beta have some more snacks,
Boy: oh no I am good aunty
Lady:Oh come on, have some more
Boy’s mom—(looking irritated)..that’s ok Mrs Sharma, we already ate a lot.
Boy’s father: I guess its very late now, we should leave
Lady: Ohh, Spana should be here any moment, cant you wait a little more
Boy’s father: No Mrs Sharma, I believe its very late. We need to drive back
Lady: I am so sorry , Believe me sapna never does this. It’s very unusual of her
Boy’s mother: We do understand , kids these days are a busy lot, she must be stuck somewhere
Boy: don’t worry aunty, we can plan to meet up some other day
Boy gets an angry glance from his mother and this curbs his attempt to sooth the lady.
The family gets up to leave, and bids goodbye.
The lady’s husband emerges from his room and on seeing the Boy’s family leave .He follows them to the gate and catches them at the door, while the lady is sitting inside. He speaks to them in hushed tones for a few minutes , the cheerful looking Boy’s shoulders droop while his mother who was a bit angry seems to be expressing her anger . The boy’s father seems supportive , he gives a very tight reassuring hug to the lady’s husband and leaves
The lady’s husband walks back to the living room and lovingly kneels in front of the lady who is sitting with her hand on her head
He holds her hand ever so gently and gives it a light kiss
Lady: What did you tell them
Lady: You don’t know the truth, you know nothing. What is the truth?
The husband simply looks at her as if no answer was necessary
Lady: Answer me, what did you tell them
Husband: You know it Suman,Why don’t you just accept it
Lady: Know what, if this is some sort of joke you and Sapna are pulling off it has to end right away
Lady: What is it, is she seeing someone else, did she not like the boy? This is no way to treat guests, those good people came all the way from Gurgaon to meet Sapna and she was nowhere to be seen
The husband doesn’t answer ,he just looks in her eyes making her visibly uncomfortable, she stands up and starts mumbling
Lady: She’s not even picking up the phone
Husband: Has she picked up your phone in last 3 months
Lady:She’s a busy girl, we chat a lot on Facebook,let me message her on Facebook, this is not the right way. I will tell her she needs to come home right now else I will no longer talk to her
Husband: Can you do that?You know you need to talk to her more than she does
Lady: Yes she knows that and she’s taking advantage of the fact
Husband: You need to understand this Suman, you need to accept the truth
We need to do it now
Lady: Do what?
Husband doesn’t reply
Lady: No, no no…you are mad, you don’t know the truth.
