Oh Gippi!!!

Yes, Mummy! What is it?




- Anchal's on the phone!


You never listen to me! Here!

Hello Anchal? Hold on for a second.

Mummy! Hang up the phone!

Booboo! Stop listening

to my calls! Hang up!

Ok now, what's up?

Gippi, l think they're

getting bigger!

Oh no! Yours were already so big!

l know, but they're poking out

of my school uniform. What do l do?

How would l know?.

Mine are still like little samosas.

Can't you think of something?


Make two braids and leave them

hanging in front. They'll get hidden.

Oh, good idea!

Ok, have to go get ready now.

See you at school. Bye!

Good morning boys and girls!

Good morning, Sister!

Welcome back to school.

l hope you had a splendid summer...

Because now, it's time for classes,

tests and homework!


l hate the first day of school.

l know,

it sucks to wake up so early.

Not Just that, l hate how

everyone is always so excited.

Like they were dying to be back.

And they act like they

missed each other soooo much!

Hey Tina!!! How are you?!!

And they suck up to the teachers as if

their cheesy smiles can wipe out...

...everything that

happened last year.

Good morning, Mrs. Batra!

- Good morning.

ugh! These girls.

9th grade, huh? Ready?

l guess...

Oh my God, Mini! Did you check out

the History book? Nehru was so cute!


- And the Biology book?!

What's so great about new textbooks?

Yeah... but that chapter on the

reproductive system is pretty awesome.

lt'll be so weird when they teach

it in class! Can you imagine...

Hi Gurpreet! Hi Anchal.

- Hi...

How was your summer?

lsn't it great to be back?


Oh. Yeah, l know. 9th grade

is going to be tough, right?

How are your Mummy and Dad?

Listen, Ashish...

- OH. MY. GOD. Who is that?!

Hi guys, meet my new friend, Kabir.

Who cares?

Hi guys! lsn't he so cute?

His name is Kabir and his

family Just moved next to Shamira.

lsn't she so lucky?


- l know, right?!

Titli's right.

Some people have all the luck.

Please! What's so lucky

about being anorexic?

You're right, Gurpreet.

Women should look like you.

Full-full, you know?.

Go back to your seat, Ashish.

l shall not tolerate sloppiness,


lt is now time for us

to read the New Testament.

Trigonometry and Calculus are highly

advanced forms of Mathematics!

lmpoliteness... lnattentiveness...

We shall learn about

reproduction in this class.

And any kind of disorderliness.

This year, you guys get

to do your own experiments.

One word in English,

and you're out of the class!

ls that clear?

Are you Ok?

- l'm good, thanks.

You sure?

- Yeah, see? All good. Thanks.

Well, as l said,

Chemistry is a dangerous subJect!

Awww! Does your ass hurt, Gurpreet?

No, but thanks for your concern.

What are you doing?

Just looking for cracks where

you fell. Oh look, there's one!

Don't look too closely,

you might fall into it.


Why don't you go home

and put some balm on your ass?

You'll definitely need

more than one bottle!

Hi didi!

- Hi.

Eww, Booboo. You stink!

Please! l smell amazing!

You're the stinky one.

No, you're the stinky one.

- Whatever, you shower with sh*t.

You shower with snot.

You shower with pee.

- You shower with vomit.

So go take a shower.

Look who's come!

Hi Mummy.

How was school?

- Fine.

Mummy! 7th grade is so hard!

And our teacher stinks!

And she didn't let

me sit next to Rocky.

Now l have to sit

next to some stupid girl.

Great, she can be your girlfriend!

Booboo is not interested in girls.

Yeah, he's too young, poor thing.

That's not what l meant.

ls that your daughter, Pappi?


- She's all grown up!

Yeah, she's even taller

than her mother now.

Say hello, Gippi.

- Hello.

She's even got hair on her arms now!

Why don't you get them waxed?

Actually, l keep telling

her but she doesn't listen.

At least get your eyebrows

done today, Gippi.

l don't want to do anything.

l'm going home.

ls this a new shade, Mummy?

Yes, dear.

Some people are so tacky!

l know! Orange shoes!

- With red shoes! Disaster!

Oh, hi didi.

- Hello again.

You won't believe

what this lady was...

Orange shoes and red polish.

Do you always have

to be this grumpy?

Hello? Oh, hi Papa!

Booboo, let me talk!

Papa, Booboo has become a balloon!

Didi's become a buffalo!

- Shut up.

How are you, Papa?

Oh... so soon?

What happened?

- No, no, l'm very excited.

Yeah, l'll tell everyone.

Love you, bye.

What's all the mystery about?

What did Papa say?

He's getting engaged next weekend.

We're all invited to the party.

Party? Awesome! But l have

nothing to wear! Let me go check.


You should definitely go.

l can't close the parlour

on weekends or l would've come too.

Are you Ok? Papa suddenly...

Of course l'm Ok!

Marry, have kids, grandkids.

What do l care?

Should l make raJma

for dinner today?

Yeah! l'm starving! Need any help?

- No, go finish your homework.


Why aren't you in bed?

l didn't have icecream after

dinner tonight, so l couldn't sleep.

Not at all.

You want some? Just a little bit?
