yourself.Give it a thought.
A cosy home, after I get married.A home that is yours. – A loving wife..Your wife. – A handful of kids..All yours, too. – Youre the one theyd call uncle!Theyll forever pester you, play with you all the timeand ask you to tell them a story!Which means Im going to play the maidservant in your house.Its clear now! You are no friend!To hell with such a..Acting pricey, arent you?Because no one else can do this for me?Had only my mother been alive, Id have settled down in life!Id even have had kids!Had my old man been aroundhed have celebrated my wedding in style!If I had brothers and sisters, theyd have begged the old ladybut seen to it that I get married to Basanti.But dont you forget!Those without any support have God on their side!Lord Almighty!Youre not the friend I knew!You dont want me to give up crime and settle down in life!I used to think so highly of you, Jai.I was so wrong!The bloody clown!Hes forever up to theatrics!Cut the act! Ill go and talk it over with the old lady.Will you, really?An unmarried girl at homeis like a burden on the soul.I can be at peace only when Basanti is married.Youre right. You are indeed bearing a burden.But I cant just dump her in a well, can I?Please dont mind, but I must askabout the suitors family, his habits and his earnings.As far as earnings goonce he is marriedhe will start earning to fend for them.Doesnt he earn anything at the moment, then?Of course, he does! When did I say that he doesnt?Its like this. No one can win all the time, right?There are times the poor chap even loses money.Loses money? – Thats right.But thats gambling, you know?Theres little I can say about it.My God! Is he a gambler?Not at all, maam!Its a shame to call him a gambler!Hes a gem of a person, decent and straight.But when someone is high on liquorhe cant see things in perspective.They force him into gambling. Hows poor Veeru to be blamed?Youre right, dear.A drinker and a gambler, and yet, faultless!Youre misunderstanding my friend.Hes an innocent, young chap.Just get him married to Basanti.Hell give up drinking and gambling in no time!Dont tell me. I know better.Has anyone ever been able to kick habitslike drinking and gambling?You dont know Veeru. Believe me, hes not at all like that.Once hes married, hell stop visiting the nautch girl.His drinking problem will be solved on its own!Good Lord! Thats all he lacked!He even visits brothels, does he?So, whats wrong with that?Even kings and princes have often patronised nautch girls!I see.But can you tell me which family your friend hails from?Well let you know that the moment we get to know of it!I must say one thing, dear.For all your friends vicesyou can only praise him!I cant help it. Im really soft at heart.So, shall I consider this alliance to be finalised?Finalised? Its okay even if she remains a spinster all her life!But I will not let Basanti marry such a man!Im her aunt, not her stepmother!Its strange that you refuse despite the best of my efforts.Poor Veeru.I dont know how he will deal with this.Ill jump to my death!Out of my way!Hey, watch it! What are you doing?Im doingjust what every legendary loverhas done!Including Romeo and Juliet!Suicide..Suicide!Well.. What is suicide?When the English die, they call it suicide.But why do the English die? – Well..Whats up, fella? Why do you wish to commit suicide?Youd rather not ask! Youll break into tears!Its a very sad story!It has emotions, drama and tragedy!You know Basanti, dont you? I was going to marry her.But her wicked aunt has been an obstacle!I cant live in this big, bad world, anymore!I bid you farewell, villagers!Goodbye!Goodbye!Well.. What is goodbye now?When the English leave, its called goodbye.But where do the English go?Hey, villagers! Farewell!God Almighty! Here I come!Hold it! Wait.. – What?You want me to wait?If you insist, Ill wait for a while.Hey, you call yourself a friend? Youre sitting here unaffected!Why? Whats wrong? – How am I to know?Look at your friend! Hes climbed all the way up there!You see that, dont you?Yes, I do. But nothings going to happen.Hell climb down when he sobers down.Ive seen many cruel people.But not a heartless friend like you!Hey, watch out!I have no one in the world! Neither friend, nor buddy..So, Im going to end my life!But I must warn you, villagers!Where a lover ends his lifethe village is wrought with calamities!What calamities will we have to face?There will be famine and drought!Diseases and death!And all
