We don't know how we

got to be like this.

Not one thing is in

its place in this house!

Don't shout.

- You don't shout!

Really, really upset.

- You must be having your periods.

Don't keep the wet towel on the bed.

Why aren't these jeans washed?

- Confused.

Disorganized and irritating.

Look, don't start again!

- Why do you always insult me... front of your friends?

Then go find new friends?

- I am pregnant.

We cannot afford it, we have to

pay the installments on the car

You are such a chauvinist! - You

go to hell! - I am living in hell!

There were fights

earlier too, but when our...

...feet would meet

accidentally on the bed...

...we would forget

all the bitterness.

But now... now even our

silences fight with each other.

7 years in age has

reduced to 7 months.

Marriages break faster

than the wedding gift tea set.

But still it is this love,

can't run it over with a bulldozer.

It creates homes with sand.

It drenches you... matter how much

you try to evade it.

While dying, no one says I hate you.

Everyone's heart says

I love you, I love you.

Now let's see who

our next caller is.

Hi, this is Vishey K. - Hi Vishey,

I am Pinky. I have a problem.

My boyfriend, his best friend and

his brother, all three love me...

Everybody is falling in love.

The census report says

there are 1000 boys...

...for 930 girls. I

should have at least 70 guys.

Caught up in my career I didn't

even realize when I turned 28.

I am hitting 30,

single and still a virgin.

All the good guys are either

married or have a girlfriend.

And the ones who're

free are free for sex...

...but not for marriage

You can eat as many chocolates but...

they just don't help the depression.

I think he is at it.

Try to find out what he eats.

Are you done? I've been
