Back in India, after 25 years

in London, yet pure Hindustani


A home there...

a home here


Happy birthday, my love

The priest gave me

a garland of flowers...

for your portrait

But garlands are for those

who have departed

But you haven't departed,

you're with me...

with me, every moment

No, no news of Sanya

It's past three am

Let me check out the house

once again

Where have you been?

- Friend's birthday

I went out for a party.

- You know what time it is?

Aren't you ashamed? For four hours,

I've been looking for you

Why? I'm not a kid! Go to bed, Papa.

We'll talk in the morning

Why not now?

You've been drinking alcohol?

- Not alcohol. Just wine

I told you! Let's talk

in the morning

Else I'll complain to the police,

I'll report you

Are you out of your mind?

For the children,

I'm no friend...

unless I have answers

for their questions

Drinking coke, in the store?

- Why not?

I know it's your weakness,

I've stocked up on Coke

Not one, I have two weaknesses.

One's this, the other is...

your soft, lovely tresses

Besides, this is the best coolant

for my hot head

Coolant for your hot head is also

this. Look at this greeting card

Sanskrit shloke

The only time I heard Sanskrit,

was the only time I spoke Sanskrit

And that was during my wedding,

and then the priest...

recited the mumbo-jumbo

and thence on...

to Buckingham, Birmingham,

and all over

You are the scholar,

you are the Oxford professor

Better you translate

that for me


Till the age of five,

children are to be loved

After they turn ten, you ought

to keep an eye on them

Once that have reached sixteen,

you ought to make friends with them

Get that, love? At sixteen, make

friends. That's if you want...

a happy home, forever

Old hat.

- Also today's new message

Striking a friendship

with my daughters!

For a father like me!

In an alien land...

Return the trolley.

I'll be in the car

Sorry, we're switching off

life support

How can this be?

The doctor gives me only

2 or 3 minutes to talk to you

No love, I'm with you

In 25 years, I haven't even taken

a breath without depending on you

You've taken care of everything...

what am I to do?

The homes, the daughters...

how am I to take care of them?

What will I talk to them about?

You will...

you are their mother, Papa too

Just promise me one thing.

- Tell me, love

Till they are married,

don't stay away from them...

be friends with them

How will I do it, love?

Ever since they have grew up...

I haven't even had a simple

conversation with them

Remember that Sanskrit shloke?


Give happy farewells

to our three daughters

Understand them...

give them understanding

There! I've slapped you.

Come to the police

Report me

If not with me,

your friend of 25 years...

with whom will you open up?

You're my kin. Before who else,

can I bare my heart?

Stop bickering over every

small thing

So what if they're daughters?

The world is full of daughters

If he can't, well he can't

If you're my son's best friend,

why can't you be best friends...

with your daughters?

- L.K... daughters are different

What will you do then?

I'm thinking of returning to India,

for a change of enviromnent

For a father, playing mother

is tough

Kids these days!

Ever since he was a child...

I put Ronit away in a hostel

That's why I left mine in Lahore.

Kids, stay where you belong

Beat me up. Give me a bad beating.

I had gone crazy

No my baby, you're my best

Papa, we three have promised never

to make you unhappy, never to fight

It's all my fault children,
