just get to the point

just get to the point

say something...

the weather is great...

the lake is beautiful...

and so are you...

can't you just get to the point?

It's not as bad as it seems.

You're looking fit.

How about a game of badminton?

You've obviously forgotten...

that i beat you 21-15 the last time.

I suggest you practice

some more before challenging me.

The moment you come

everything seems fine.

I am worried about them.

Nothing seems to have worked out.

They want to start computer classes...

but the bank isn't sanctioning their loan.

They need a guarantor.

The house hasn't been built completely.


if the bank agrees...

i'll sign as a guarantor.

As for the house,

right now they're staying in our new house.

But for how long

can we pile on to you?

They were supposed to be there

just for two months... it's already four!

Papa, the builder said we'll

get possession in three-four months.

That's perfect.

I don't need the house immediately.

The college is giving me

a two-year extension.

I don't want you to worry.

You're the only one i have.

But, i can't play badminton today.

Tomorrow, definitely tomorrow.

I'll be here.

- I'll only be a minute.

- Make it quick.


Guruji, guruji...

greetings to you.

You can't leave unless

you have some tea.

Shambhu, some other day.

I'm in a rush today.

It'll only take a minute.

Listen... make some tea.

She works very hard.

And, all on her own.

- Greetings guruji.

- Bless you.

What's going on here?

- Greetings guruji.

- Bless you.

Oh my god!

What is this high-sounding formula?

- What is this?

- It's bernoulli's equation.

I know, but what exactly does

bernoulli's equation mean?

- Make sure you keep the house clean.

- Yes.

- You do light a lamp at the altar, right?
