“Nice name Priya.” Stella turns to face Prem and asks “Prem, where is Raj?”
Prem looks at her and asks “Raj? Who?”
“Prem, you forgot your boy friend Raj? Oh don’t tell me that you broke up with him so soon.” Prem looks at Stella in disbelief and whispers “What are you saying?”
“Don’t be naughty now Prem. I saw you that day with Raj when you came out of his room with just a towel wrapped around your waist. He was your second male friend after Samar.” Stella says casually while Prem starts coughing. “Who’s Samar now?”
Priya looks confused at both Prem and Stella and Stella smiles at her saying “Priya, you know Prem doesn’t even remember his partner’s names. Last month it was Raj and before that Samar.”
“But they are boys? Relationship with a boy?” Priya says in disbelief.
“Come on Priya. The world has moves on and gay relationships are accepted today. You shouldn’t be surprised.”
Priya’s eyes tear up and the song starts singing in her mind “Maa da ladla bigad gaya…(Mother’s boy has become spoiled).”
She looks at Prem and curses him in his mind for cheating her and runs away in search of Kalpana.
