You’re so tired. I’ve told you so many times not to do so much work. Even the doctor advised you the same God forbid if anything happens I’m the one who will have to face aunty’s criticism about not taking proper care of you Mother is so inconsiderate. I told her not to make you do so much work but she never listens to me She doesn’t realize. It’s so wrong, she’s turned you in to a servant You do one thing, go to your mother’s house tomorrow and spend a few days over there. You’ll get some rest and she will be happy as well But what about aunty? Oh don’t worry about her, I’ll handle her. If it were up to her she would make you work even when you’re asleep I’m going to drop you over there for a few days so you get some rest. They won’t stop making you work until you leave Relax okay? Hello? Water Did you think about it? Look Mr. Sharafat. The matter is very clear. These days you can not trust anyone. People pretend to be helpless and take money from you but then forget you when it’s time to return it Believe me, I have completely stopped lending money to people But yes, if you have anything you can deposit as a security, then it’s fine Because I need a guarantee that I will get my money back Yes Mr. Siddiq but I do not have anything valuable in my possession What are you talking about. You have a house. You can give me your property papers as a security deposit Documents of my house? Look, I will not give any loan without a guarantee. The rest is up to you, bring the papers and take the loan. As you wish Think about it. Take this glass with you My dear, even God gives humans a chance to correct themselves, then who are we to punish anyone? I’m not punishing anyone father. I just can not forgive Affan, it’s not in my control I tolerated Affan’s every injustice he did with me I lost my child because of him. I can’t forget that and neither can I forgive him Whenever I see him my wounds start to bleed again My dear. All wounds heal with time. Give some time to yourself as well as him. Everything will be fine Nothing will be fine. Affan is going to face the punishment for what he has done for the rest of his life Because curses of people will not stop following Affan. Nothing will be fine, father Welcome welcome my child. You did the right thing. Do you know I was thinking to call you and ask to you to come here and take rest. and do the shopping of child with your own choice. I stopped you, didn’t I? that you will not give anything. By fulfilling aunt’s wishes you have spoiled her. She has become habitual of asking. Enough! We had to give something even if she didn’t ask. It is also our first grand child. Also, it’s a tradition. On the birth of first child, everything is given by girl’s family. What kind of society is this where the whole burden is put on girl’s family? Where there is no tradition or principle or responsibility on guy’s family. Leave it. Only rich people can do it. Those who do not have enough meals for a day shouldn’t give importance to such traditions. You don’t need to be worried. Your father is asking a friend of his. He said he will arrange something. But mother … This is our problem. We will solve it. Are you here to take rest or to get worried? What kind of face have you made. Enough! I’ll go and cook sweet dish for my daughter. Okay? You like it right? I have a daughter who gets annoyed quickly. These are papers of my house. Okay! Fine! Take this Mr. Sharafat.
Sign here. What is this Mr. Sadiq? It is written in this document that if you will not return my money then I will become the owner of the house. You don’t need to be worried. This is just a formality. I’m not confiscating your house. Go ahead. Come on do it. Take this. Your money Thank you! What is there to be thankful? We are neighbors. If we will not help each other then who will? Sharafat, this is a matter of your daughter and in laws. Homes of daughters break in such issues. May God keep homes of everyone’s daughter save. Amen! Take it carefully.
You know how bad people are. Natalia, don’t go. I’ll get bored. Come on Babar. Why are you acting childish. I have a social life and a social circle. What do you want me to do? Leave everything and stay back at home with you? Natalia, are you ready my child? Yes! Lets go! Natalia, I forgot my bag in the room. Babar my child, can you bring my bag from the room? I?
Send some servant. My child, I do not trust these servants. They are very greedy. You don’t know them.
They keep an eye on every small thing. I never focus on how much money do I have in my bag. What if they take out something? And you are trustworthy, right? I could have asked Natalia but she’s wearing high heels. She will slip so please Okay I’ll bring. And do not open the bag. It’s ladies bag. Men shouldn’t open it.
It’s bad manners. Okay Mother, what was the need to say this to him? Natalia, it is very important to do this to keep him in his limits. Take this Khalida. I borrowed this money from a friend. Buy whatever you need for Zeba and her child. This is a lot of money.
Who gave you this much money? Yes! My friend was saying it’s a matter of daughters in laws. There shouldn’t be anything less. That is right. Also, Farhat checks the quality of everything. She doesn’t like a cheap thing. By the way, how will you return this amount? He isn’t in hurry. Neither he has less money. He was saying I can return when it’s convenient for me. Really? Who is this friend? You don’t know him. Whoever he is, he is an angel. He felt our problem. May God ease his every pain. Will you have dinner?
Shall I serve you? No, I’m not hungry. Give me a cup of tea only. Mr. Zubair, I helped you in every hard time. Today when I’m in trouble, you are refusing to help I do understand your problem. Matter isn’t about few thousand rupees but millions. It is difficult to arrange this big amount. Also, my business is in loss these days. I’m sorry Affan. I can not help you right now. Mr. Zubair, listen to me. Mr. Zubair? Hello? Relationships that are built on the bases of greediness are always weak. How much time I took to understand this small thing that you got married to me only because of your benefit. You treated me so badly. I tolerated what not and for whom? For my child. He is no more now. Our relationship is mere a burden for me.
And I’m tired of carrying this burden Affan. What sin have I done Affan? I listened to you my whole life. I did whatever you said. Now you are leaving me in the way. Hello! I’m back and I’m very tired. Something happening finally happened in my life otherwise I got so dull in your house. What kind of boring life you people live. Whichever way we live.
At least we don’t insult son in laws. Go and see at aunt’s place how much respect does Hammad get. And here your mother has considered me a servant. Natalia you … Babar, not again. What was your mother thinking when she asked me to bring bag from the room? Is this a way to treat a son in law? If your mother can’t respect me that’s fine.
At least she shouldn’t humiliate me. Babar, why are you making it an issue? What is wrong if mother asked you to do something. This is your house. No one becomes servant by doing something in their own home. And you should be happy that mother has started trusting you. She wasn’t trusting me but humiliating me. Babar, I’m really tired. I can not take this. I just need to go and change .
We will talk some other day. What reminded you of us? You broke all the relations with us when you broke engagement with Zeba. Then how have you come here today? Aunt, I’m here to ask forgiveness from you all. Forgiveness? So you finally realized to apologize. Aunt, I know that you loved me a lot for your whole life. You considered me like your son. And I betrayed you. I lied to you.
In front of money, I forgot your love and care. I still came back to you with this thought that you will forgive me considering the same Affan who you raised in his childhood. How do I forget Affan that you took away dreams of my daughter and gave her tears. How do I forget when she used to cry for whole nights on terrace. Affan, how do I forget?
How? Aunt, I’m already being punished for my actions. For the things I spurned Zeba’s love I am left with nothing from them. Neither wife nor child or money. I have nothing. I’m empty handed. Zeba, I did unfair to you. By rejecting you I chose Hania for me because I found her beneficial for me. But today, she also doesn’t want to live with me. She sees a murderer in me. This is karma. I know you can’t forgive me. And I will not force you to do it. But I want to request you one thing. Take as much time as you want, Zeba But if any of my good memory comes in you mind then try to forgive me. Because if you will not forgive me then God wouldn’t and I will keep regretting. I shall leave now. You have got married to me but when are you taking me to home? But Zeba is there. So what? I’m also your wife. I have right on that house. Also, I had to sell this house. Why are you selling this house. You stay here. I will keep coming. Will you stay at my place for the whole life? Not at all, And you said you will take me. Then? I’m trying to save you. It will be easy for you. You can’t spend a minute with my mother.
You don’t know her. Your mother doesn’t know me. Let me go there once then see. I will take you there. It’s not a problem for me. I was saying for you. Good. Now go quickly and get ready. I don’t want you to be late. Where are we going? We aren’t going anywhere. Only you are. You are going to pick Hassan from school. Send the driver. Driver is on leave and I don’t like driving much. Till the time driver isn’t here, it is your responsibility to pick and drop him to the school. After all you are his father. I’ll go after the tea. He is my father, I’m not. Did you say something? No, nothing. While treating others badly, a person forgets that this world is consequence of our actions. Here whatever you sow is what you will reap. Someone said it right that this world gives you reward and punishment both. No matter how cruel you become, when the time changes, everything fades away. Affan did so much bad to us. Still my child, when I see him like this, my heart aches. It is my sister who is at fault. When a child makes mistake, it is mother’s responsibility to correct him with either a slap or pulling his ears. But she deliberately pushed her children towards wrong direction. They say it right that greed is a curse. It ruins a person if he becomes greedy. No one in that house is happy today. Affan has reached to this limit and Babar left the home. This is God’s blessing that Hammad is fine. Since the day you came to my life, my life is changed. Now I felt what happiness is. Madam, Hassan is getting so much angry. He’s throwing things in the room. What? What did you say to him? I swear I didn’t do anything. He’s saying only one thing that call mother. Come on Salma. Its the limit. If I had to look after him then why did I hire you on a pay. I’ll go and check him. I don’t know who put an evil eye on our house? It seems like everything is finished. We neither think wrong about anyone nor did anything wrong to anyone then why is fate doing this to us? What happened to our house? Haven’t you still realized that why is this all happening? You aren’t this senseless. When a person runs blindly after money in greed then one day he falls badly. The same way we fell. We got so blind after money that we betrayed everyone; our own relatives and strangers both. We neither leave Zeba nor Hania. When Hania refused to stay with me. that day I realized how painful would it be for Zeba. also how painful would it be for aunt and uncle. who took care of us their whole life. They stood with us in our difficult times and raised me like their own child. Then what did I do? I made fun of them infront of every one. I didn’t think how painful would it be for them. This was only because they were not rich.
They didn’t have money. Today when I think of this, I feel disgusted. How low I am. How selfish I am. But aunt was your real sister. How could you do this to her?
How could you be this selfish? What could I do? You refused the proposal.
I couldn’t force you. You could have done so much if you wanted but you didn’t want it. You were blinded in greed of money. Nothing has more value towards you than money. Only those people are important to you who are rich. Have you gone crazy?
What rubbish are you saying? I’m absolutely right. Why didn’t you force me when I refused to marry Zeba? Why didn’t you slap me? Why didn’t you tell me that I can’t do this to her. A mother teaches the value of relationships to her children. She raise them in a way that they can take care of their own people but you didn’t do anything like this. You taught us that money in the most important thing. We can buy anything with money either its an item or a relation. Anything can be bought because everything sell. You taught your children greediness.
Now suffer the consequences. You will reap what you sown. I got married to Hania leaving Zeba behind for money. Hania has also left me. Hammad got married to Zeba for money and Babar. He has gone with his wife leaving you behind. This is your crime and this is your punishment. Mother, it is only you who is behind our destruction. Its only you. Your tea. Have it. What is it? What are you thinking? What am I thinking. I’m thinking what have I earned in my life. It’s just this house. In this era when prices are so high,
it is a lot to own a house. At least we are safe of paying a rent.
What else do we want? Go and see people who live in a rented house. They live like gypsies.
They keep shifting their luggage here and there. What else do we want? At least we have a shelter. We don’t need to be afraid of the time when we have to leave the place. Don’t think of non sense. You always earned legal money and fed us. You gave higher education to your daughter. What else do we want? It is God’s blessing and thanks to you that we have a shelter. We don’t want anything else. You keep thinking non sense for no reason. What shall I tell you Khailda? The shelter you are so thankful for, what i we don’t have it tomorrow. Haven’t you still realized that why is this all happening? We got so blind after money that we betrayed everyone; our own relatives and strangers both. We neither leave Zeba nor Hania. We neither leave Zeba nor Hania. When Hania refused to stay with me. That day I realized how painful would it be for Zeba. We made fun of them in front of everyone. This was only because they were not rich.
They didn’t have money. But aunt was your real sister.
How could you do this to her? How could you be this selfish? you didn’t want it. You were blinded in greed of money. Nothing has more value towards you than money. Only rich people are important to you. A mother teaches the value of relationships to her children. She raise them in a way that they can take care of their own people but you didn’t do anything like this. You taught us that money in the most important thing. I got married to Hania leaving Zeba behind for money. Hania has also left me. Hammad got married to Zeba for money and Babar. He has gone with his wife leaving you behind. Did Affan have his breakfast? He has left. Where? He didn’t inform. Fine! You go Come! Come here What are you doing here? I will get something for you on the birth of first child. I will also get ear rings for Farhat. My child, show something. What are you doing? You have already done a lot. There is no need of it. I will not let you waste money. Okay fine. There is no need to give jewelry. We will do it on the birth of first child. We won’t do it second time. Alright? But mother … Enough. Don’t argue. Show me something bigger than this. We aren’t doing anything unusual. Everyone do this. Also show some locket.
Do you have only lockets?
