Really? Then take this, sell it and reach hospital with 3 lac Bhabi what are you saying? How can I sell this? What are you talking about? Who will give 2, 2.5 lac for this? I will do something What will you do? Do you have something? Oh, maybe you have your mother’s jewelries which you might have hidden from us Bhabi, what are you saying? Why would I hide something from you? All I have is my education and nothing else Ha! Where will we go and sell your certificates and degrees? I can do a job, at least! Leave it! I can’t leave your brother to die to wait for your job I will do something Baji, I have an idea The company which hired Bhai jee, if Bia goes there and tell them everything, maybe it will work What do you think?

Hey, take your seat, come on and start the interviews by the way, maa, I was thinking how fast everything is. the ad was just given yesterday and see how many girls have come outside Yes, so, unemployment rate has risen in the country I think, without further ado, let’s start the interviews Yes, Miss Sadaf. Can I tell you something? these goldsmiths are very dishonest people. I am pretty sure they haven’t given you the right amount for all of your things Obviously, where did he give the right amount? Dishonest man! If we go here to buy, they will ask for thousands of rupees and if we give a box full of jewelries, they say it has no weight, its stitched. They say a million things. You are right. He took all the things, everything from you and what did he give? 1 lac rupees? that too by asking so much that’s fine but we need 2,3 lac rupees for bhai jee’s operation Think about where the rest of the money will come from Look, Salman. Whatever I had, I put it out there for my husband. Bia do the rest she too has some responsibilities What are you talking about? Even if Bia gets the job, they won’t hand 2 lac over to her quickly Shut up, Salman. I am already so worried. Bhai, please drive fast, We have to reach quickly. Bhai, change the gear!

They are taking interview for a PA This is a very hard work You are already fed up Maa, do these interviews. I don’t understand anything Shafay, how can I decide how your personal secretary should be? by the way, tell me something? All these girls who came in for the interviews, do you think that’s what thy came in for? Why? What do you think? Maa, check out their looks. I thought they came in to attend a fashion show. Did you see their makeup? and so overconfident? I am so sorry I can’t have a girl like that as my personal secretary. Shafay, at least interview the girls sitting outside. That’s abd. Uncle, they must be like this as well Shafay, that’s bad One minute yes, Miss Sadaf. If there’s a simple looking decent girl sitting outside who also deserve the job, please send her in. Miss Bia? Yes? Please come in. Me? Yes, you. It was my turn, why does she go? Miss Bia, please get inside. Please sit down for now. I will send you after her. She might be here with a reference, that’s why she went in first. Who keeps a simple and decent girl as secretary these days? Tabrez, Shafay is my son. He has a different mindset than the rest of the world. Bia, you?
