No. 5, turn it away...

some more.

Away from your eyes,

or you'll be blinded.

Darkness in a place which

supplies power, all over!

There were power-failures

earlier also.

But it's getting too

frequent now, Mr. Gupta.

We've had a shortage

of monsoons this year.

That's the tragedy of this country.

Stepping into the 21st century...

we still have our hopes

pinned on the monsoons!

Not to be offended, Mr. Gupta.

But if this happened in America...

people there would sue

the power supplying companies.

This is not America...

although I strongly wish we could

make more progress than America.

That's not happening for

another 500 years.

That's going to happen

in the next 20 years.

Good night, sir.

Have you had dinner?

- I don't feel hungry at all.


- Don't disturb me. I'm not hungry!

But I'm hungry and I'm going

to eat dinner with you tonight.

Now look; your father

paid me for a year.

And you've been paying me

for 2 years after his death...

not to make me eat and go to sleep.

It is to make me prove something.

You change colors like the chameleon.

Yesterday, you told me that...

you had promised my dad nothing

about proving yourself.

That you would do your research,

notwithstanding the results.

Didn't you say that to me?

Didn't you?

The truth is that research itself

is enough.

Whether you achieve something or not.

Whether you spend years or ages,

it makes no difference.

Research is a passion.

It's an obsession...

the one doing it is lost in.

So it's necessary for you

to keep reminding me...

that I come up with results.

So that you gain something...

I gain something and

so does the world. Okay?

Now go and sit there.

Go on.

How about food?

- I'll eat with you. Go on now.

Kailash! Welcome!

Asha, look who's here!

Kailash, you must visit us sometimes.

Ever since your father has died...

you have stopped coming

to our place.

You must keep in touch.

We're your own people.

Asha, where were you

all this time?

Ask him, dad! He was walking

as if he had sprained his ankle!

I saw no point in racing ahead

in the darkness.

She escaped an injury twice anyway.

- That's just what I say.

Rather than go out in the darkness,

isn't it better...

that you remain indoors and

play cards or just chat it up?

Now don't take me for an

old-fashioned man.

But this is a small town.

And tongues will wag.

Sorry, daddy. I will

remember that in future.

Haven't you gone to sleep?

- You've woken at the right time.

Uncle! Did the sunlight

start that fire?

Yes. It's the sun's rays.

Fantastic! How are you

going to put it out?

You can now imagine how powerful

the sunrays are.

If this is what happens in

one hundredth of a second...

a hundred times bigger fire

can be started in one second.

In one minute...

- 60 times more powerful!

You can charge a battery of this size

with so much power in just 8 hours...

that you can keep the lights

in this lab. Going for a year!

You're so close to Asha that it

makes me consider you like a son.

All my wealth will one day

go to my son-in-law.

And from the way Asha speaks,

I think it's you.

So why don't you get

a bit more serious?

Attend office with me.

Think of ways of promoting business.

May I say something if

it doesn't offend you?

Sure. Go ahead.

Your factory has no future anymore.

- Why not?

In fact, ever since you've arrived,

we've upped production by 20 per cent!

These batteries have no future, sir.

In this very city, there's a man doing

research for the last 10 years...

which will turn all these things

into relics of the 18th century.

When the batteries roll out

of his factory...

they aren't going to

be as heavy as this one.

They'll be 20 times lighter

and 10 times cheaper.

You won't have to recharge them

for 24 hours any longer...

2 minutes in the sun

will do.

They aren't going to run out of power

like these ones either.

They'll keep going for years.

Once they are out in the market...

your batteries are going to look

like bullock-carts, compared to cars.

And you will look like

a pauper before a king.

How do you know all this?

- Kailash is my friend.

Why the re-double?

- No trumps was yours, wasn't it?

That was a bid I made

on your move!

But why the 3 hearts?

- One heart was also yours, Jeevan.

One heart bid I made because

I have a 2 and a half bid!

And what do you have to show?

- But I was supporting you.

Supporting me with these

piddly little cards?!

I can't be your partner!

You're always fighting!

You've messed my game!

Won't I even fight with you?

He acts as if he's losing his life!

- Whatever it is! Why must I lose?

You're doing the shouting

and my throat's drying up.

Find another partner!

He makes me lose and asks me

to find another partner!

You guys play!

One cold beer.

- One for me. He picks up the bill.

Give the gentleman his own bill.

In fact, take it an advance.

Or he might ask what beer

he ever had!

I see!

- People come here to relax...

and this chap shows what an

expert he is at everything!

And you! Will you tell me who taught

you Bridge in the first place?

You did. Have you forgotten?

He makes me lose in there and

treats me like a beggar here.

Get me the beer. Quick.

- Here you are, sir.

Take a swig... cheers!

Whom are you looking at?

- Someone I was longing to see.

Is there someone like that?

- Don't look! She'll get suspicious.
