To Park Avenue. You know

my address, sister.

No, I don't. You direct me.

I said you direct me. I'm

tired of this, Meethi.

I'll direct you?

It's very easy. We have to...

It's a white house, with a

big black rot iron gate.

And... and it has a name

plate over there...

And lots of brogan villa.

And it's number 15.

15 Park Avenue.

Meethi, that road sign says

Balliganch Park road.

This is not Park avenue.

The new name is Park avenue.

They announce it on the T.V.

Hello, Sanjeev. I'll call

you back in a bit.

What? I'm driving.

I'm taking Meethi somewhere.

What... excuse me.

Listen, you're breaking

up, I can't hear you.

Excuse me. - What are you

getting so upset about.

I said I'll call you.

What's the matter?

This is Park avenue, isn't

it? Where is number 15?

This is not Park avenue, ma'am.

You mean Palm avenue?

No, no, no. Not Palm avenue.

I know Palm avenue.

My uncle used to live there.

Let's just go home.

- It's okay, it's okay.

I have a class at 11:OO. I can't

keep my students waiting.

Can we stop for just 5 minutes

and look? Please.

Not now, sweetie.

Mahesh and Padma are coming.. .

.. .home for tea this evening.

Remember? With a baby.

Don't you want to go home

and rest before that?

But my children also want to

see the new baby, sister.

Let's just wake them up.

Oh God, I can't take this any more.

Meethi, what can I do if

you can't find the place?

It's your house, not mine.

I'm turning back.


'And secondly, there is

no doubt in my mind#

Meethi! Meethi! Meethi!

Have you deaf?

Your brother and sister have

come along with the baby.

Come on, get up.

- Baby! Where?

In the drawing room. Come.

First have your medicine.

Am I right, Meethi?

- What are you saying, sister?

Charu... Charu, be careful.

Be careful.


What happened?

Charu... you didn't lock

the door. Again.

How many times I've told

you to lock the door.. .

.. .and keep the keys in your hand.

No, no. You go away from here.

Again you left your bed and got up.

No, no. My baby is crying!

- Meethi!

No, no!

- Come in!

Where are you going?

How many times I've

told you to call me.

Enough, Charu. Take her inside.

Oh my God! What have you done!

Move! That's why I say not to

drink so much water at night.

But she doesn't listen.

Now I'll have to wash the

clothes at midnight.

I'll have to clean the room.

Otherwise the whole

house will be dirty.

Enough, Charu! She didn't

do it purposely!

She has to take so many pills.

Its okay, baby.

Go, dear.

- Come.

Charu... Charu...

The veil.

Say! Say! Say!

No! No!

Mummy! Mummy!

Say! Will you go or not!

Will you go!

Don't worry, aunty.

She will get well.

Did you hear, ma'am.

She will be fine.

You did so much for her.

So many doctors, so many medicines.. .

.. .did something happen?

Now listen to me.

I told you about the

girl in my village.

Her plight was worst than Meethi.


Now look at her, she is married

has children.. .

.. .and she is leading a normal life.

Everything will be fine.

Raju, what are you doing here?

My puppy vanished somewhere.

Tiger! Tiger! Tiger! Tiger!

Look at this, sister. Meethi

has washed all the dishes.

Now Kaushalya will lose her job.

She wasn't feeling well today.

- What happened?

You beat Meethi again?


Don't listen to her.

Ma'am, shall I switch on the geyser?

Yes. I have to leave after my bath.

And bring my tea in the room only.


Charu, where are you?

The bleeding won't stop, Mother.

Meethi, my child.

Dear.. .


Sister.. .

Kaku.. .

Sister.. .

Let's go.

Is there a single room?

- Yes. There is.


I hammered him so much.

That he ran away.

Rascal ran away.

Buddy, she has come.

Oh Reporter sister,

where had you gone?

Excuse me!

- Oye! She is feeling shy.

Where are you going alone?

Take me with you wherever you go.

What is the rush?

- Madam-ji, listen!


Isn't she the one from Calcutta?

She wants to be a big reporter.

Hey! Where is your tape recorder?

Get it out!

- Get it out. - Get it out!

Get it out!

Isn't that interview in this?

Say yes. - Yes. - Very good.

This must be too petrifying for

her. She got scared so soon.


Camera !

You will click more photographs?

Take this.

Come... come.

You have come to take an interview?

You want to take an interview?

Then take... take my interview.

Should I cry or laugh?

What should I do?

Charu !

Wait, Charu, not now.

Charu, clean below her hair.

Oh god! Annu.



Madam, sister, it is two and

the sister hasn't come yet.
