9. INT. VIKAS’S ROOM – EVENING

Vikas walks with Swajal till the main gate and talks for a while. One kid is playing on the road with a bicycle tire and a wooden stick; he is running the tire by hitting it with the stick. One street hawker is walking on the road with his rickshaw van loaded with plastic jewelleries, toys, utensils, etc. Vikas and Swajal talks for a while near the gate till gets dark in the evening.

SWAJAL

…or asol naam ki chhilo ke jane?

Taa hobe, 70-80 bachhor.

VIKAS

(whispering)

Tachhara, tor oi Shibu’dai to

SWAJAL (whispers in anger)

VIKAS

SWAJAL

You proud brat!

ami bhule jaabo je, tui amar bondhu…

VIKAS (satire smile)

shanti Swajal, shanti.

Take care man!

Bye…

Swajal, with anger, goes out of sight driving his motorcycle. Vikas comes back to his room.

Vikas, in the bright evening light, looks at Tulsi’s house before entering into his room. He becomes upset after not seeing her around and stops in front of his half way closed door. As soon he enters into his room, someone pulls him inside and pushes the door to close it.

The door couldn’t get closed fully and a thin line between door slabs make the inside little bit visible. Vikas, closely stands with Tulsi supporting the door, is visible from the thin door gap.

TULSI (artificial anger)

Tumi ki bolchhile,

tomar bandhu’ke?

VIKAS

Swajal’ke? Ki niye?

TULSI

Amake niye!

VIKAS

Koi, Kichhu na to!

TULSI

Ki mone karo?

Shunte paini?

VIKAS (nervous)

Ami to emni…

TULSI

Ki emni?

Sedin-o to bandhu’der khub bolchhile,

“Vikas aar jaai koruk na keno,

Eto baro paap korte parbo na”!

VIKAS

Dibbi je Vikas balchho?

Sobar samne Bikash keno balo?

TULSI

Amar ichha!

Tomar ki?

VIKAS

Amar aar ki?

Kichhui na!

TULSI

Kichhui na!

Achha?

Ki bhaabo? Kichhu bujhi na?

VIKAS

Bojho to, na bojhar bhaan keno karo?

Vikas pulls Tulsi very close to him holding her hands. Tulsi gets closer to him and the door think gap increases little bit more. Vikas squeezes her in his arms very tightly. Tulsi’r lips are almost touching his lips. Vikas kisses on Tulsi’s lips. Tulsi artificially tries to get rid of Vikas.

TULSI

Ki karchho, chaaro!

Chaaro bolchhi…

Vikas holds her tightly and kisses her passionately on her lips, cheeks, neck. Tulsi slowly gets involved, closes her eyes, holds his arms tightly, then tightly holds his back and shoulder with her fingers and nails. Tulsi’s breathings get deeper! Vikas drags her on his bed and places himself on Tulsi. Vikas and Tulsi’s legs start getting involved in erotic game and make movement. He rolls on hos bed to take Tulsi on him. Suddenly Vikas falls down from his bed on the floor.

10. INT. VIKAS’S ROOM – EVENING

Vikas comes out from his dream of afternoon sleep after falling down from bed. Excited Vikas falls down on the floor. He moves his hand in the evening darkness to find out the bed switch comes out from the main switch board with an extension wire hanging on the wall. He switches on the light.

Vikas, with sleepy eyes, in unprepared condition, seating on the floor, looks at the closed door. Then he, with uncomfort, looks at his wet bermuda pant and expresses his irritation.

He hears Tulsi’s voice asking for help. He gets up and opens the door immediately. Then he stops, looks at his pant with irritation, wears a loose jeans pant on top of his bermuda, and goes out from his room in hurry.

11.INT.SHIBRAJ’S HOUSE-YARD/ROOM - EVENING

Shibraj, in a complete drunken state and uncontrolled way, walks towards the yard and falls down near Vikas’s room. Tulsi comes out from the kitchen hearing the sound. She tries to pull Shibraj to make him stand. After failing to do so, she calls Vikas.

TULSI

Bikash, O Bikash,

Ekhane eso na!

Taratari eso…

Vikas wears jeans pant on top of his wet bermuda and comes out of his room. He runs towards Shibraj after seeing him fallen down on the yard. Vikas and Tulsi hold Shibraj to get him up and bring him into their bed room. Then they make him lie down on the bed. Shibraj in drunken state and Tulsi, out of care and anger, continues speaking while they bring Shibraj into their bed room.

TULSI

Keno aisab chai-bhasyo gelo?

Amar ki dukhya hoy na?

Amio ki khete shuru karbo?

SHIBRAJ

Ami ki ichhe kore khaai?

(showing his left chest)

Kirakom ekta…

Ai to tui ese gechhis!

Amar aar kono chinta nei.

VIKAS

Shibu’da haat-ta din,

Ai je, uthun uthun…

TULSI

Ohh.. otho ektu dhore,

Ghare chalo…

SHIBRAJ

Ahh… chal bhai…

Ghore chal…

TULSI

Tumi kotha bolo na…

SHIBRAJ

Kotha? kothaai to bola hoy na!

Or songe, thik kore?

VIKAS

Hya… cholun,

Kotha bolbo ghare giye…

SHIBRAJ

Ki balto…

Duto kothai Jodi na…

Vikas and Tulsi literally pull him on his bed and make him lie down. Shibraj’s voice slows down, becomes less understandable. He slowly gets asleep. Vikas continues standing there in an uncomfortable situation. Tulsi looks at Shibraj in a very caring and hopeless way for a while. Then, she talks to Vikas.

TULSI

O erakom chhilo na.

Amader gram-e keu erakom noy.

Hote pare na!

Gato barer aager Pujoy…

Train-e kore bari phirchhilo,

Tution pore…

Debu, Debraj,

Pujor modhye,

Prachondo bhir,

Station-e dhokar mukhe

Haat chitke

Niche pore…

Matha ekta pathorer opor pore,

Ekebaare thetle…

Tears come out from Tulsi’s eyes. She cannot control herself and cries out. She weeps for a while holding part of her saree on mouth. Then she, after wiping her tears with her saree, controls herself and continues describing to Vikas in a less attentive mental state.

TULSI

Ekahner haaspatal-e to kichhu holo na,

Gari jogar kore,

Rasta-tei…

Tarpor thekei…

or ai sab shuru!

VIKAS

Na na, emni-tei ami…

Ki sab bhebe…

Aar amake, ai sab bole

Choto koro na boudi…

Vikas moves a bit towards the window and accidentally touches the glass kept on the window shelf. Glass falls down on the floor and breaks (signifies breaking his ego).

Tulsi nodes her head and moves her eyes to indicate not to worry about the broken glass. Shibraj moves a bit and turns towards them. He turns his head slightly and asks Vikas…

SHIBRAJ

Aarey Vikas, tumi?

Baso…

Tomar boudi, eto emotional!

cinta hoy…

VIKAS (in agony)

Aar chinta korben na Shibraj’da,

Ami… ese gechhi!

Vikash, in tremendous mental agony, slowly moves backward to reach near the door. He looks at Tulsi once. Then turns and goes out. Tulsi, with tears in her eyes, smiles looking at Vikas.

12.EXT.BANK OF THE POND – EVENING

(Note: parallel edit with previous scene)

Vikas walks towards the pond. He, in the mild orange sunset light of evening, sees a young lady taking bath in the pond. Her towel (gamcha) is kept neatly on the ground near the water.

He goes near to the bank (ghat) of the pond and slowly enters into the water. He stands inside the pond water for a long time. His neck is under the water. He looks at the sky and closes his eyes. Slowly he sinks his head inside the water.

He takes out his head after a while from the far end of the pond and slowly swims back towards the bank of the pond.

He notices the young lady is not there in the bank, but surprisingly the rickshaw driver is cleaning himself into the pond water. Vikas sees the same towel (gamcha) in the same place. He looks at the rickshaw driver while nearing towards the bank and starts talking to him.

VIKAS

Tui kakhon eli?

Kheyal kori ni to!

RICKSHAW-DRIVER (smiles)

Ami to kakhon thekei achhi!

VIKAS

Seriously, kakhon eli?

Ekhane to ekjon mohila chhilen!

RICKSHAW-DRIVER

ke?

VIKAS

Ke jaane, lokhyo korini oi bhabe!

Rickshaw drives smiles looking at him. His smile indicates happiness for being able to avoid looking at the lady. Vikas too understands the meaning of his smile. He comes near bank and stands on the pond ground where water level touches his chest.

VIKAS

Sikhya ki sab somay

Nijer abhigyata thekei hoy?

RICKSHAW-DRIVER

Ta noy!

Dekhe sikhte parle

Theke sekhar dorkar ki?

Ai Mukku’ke dekhe gota desher sekha uchit!

VIKAS

I mean…

Tumi eto ki kore jaano?

RICKSHAW-DRIVER

Nijer bhitore takiye dekho,

Sab khela oi aham aar om-er maaje!

He looks at the cows having grass near the pond, gets out of the water and wipes his body with the towel (gamcha) kept on the ground. He looks towards the cows and starts walking towards them.

Vikas gets out too from the water looks at him. He pampers the cows and starts walking. Cows follow him. He tells Vikas without looking at him while leaving the place.

RICKSHAW-DRIVER

Ami ke seta tomar kajer proshno noy.

Tomar khoj eta,

Je tumi ke!

VIKAS

Ke ami?

Vikas, son of Mr. Akash Kumar…

Son of a … gay!

Om-er khela ekatmo-tay.

Aar ahom holo MAYA.

Ja dekhchho, anubhab karchho,

E sab-i tar astitwer proman…

He leaves the place, but his words continue echoing in Vikas’s mind. He continues looking at the rickshaw driver and his cows. Vikas, in a deep thought, starts remembering his childhood and past memories to find the answer "who am I?".

[ FLASHBACK ]

YEAR 2013

1) INT. BED ROOM - AFTERNOON

Beside dressing table, Vinita is sitting on a bean bag with her diary and a pen. She is sliding the pen in between her fingers. Pen ball goes near to the dairy page, touches the page and comes up without writing anything. Only one ink dot is visible on the page. Vinita looks angry and disturbed. She thinks for sometime, then hesitantly writes incomplete sentence

LIFE IS ALL ABOUT SOMEONE’S PAST…

and continues looking into it emotionlessly.

2)INT.BED ROOM - AFTERNOON

Vinita is sitting in her bed room on the same bean bag. She has the diary and pen in her hand. Vikas slowly enters into her room with an unhappy look and sits on the other bean bag near Vinita.

VINITA

Baby, come here.

Vinita spreads her hands and takes Vikas on her laps.

VINITA

AKASH

Vini, ekta-duto dim bodh hoy

phete gechhe.

Dim-er packet-ta aage ber kore niyo,

Nahole sab dirty hoye jaabe!

The drawing room TV was on and some music channel was running songs in high volume. Vinita was busy preparing apple shake in her mixi. She doesn't concentrate on his talk and continues making the shake. Akash comes out of the kitchen and sits on the sofa in front of the TV. He changes the channel and starts watching a movie. His son Vikas comes out from kitchen and sits with Akash in front of him on sofa and starts watching TV. Akash gently starts running his fingers in Vikas's hair.

VIKAS

Papa, oi Anik ache na,

Amar bondhu?

O cartoon dekhar kotha bolchhilo!

AKASH

Ok. Kintu ekhon na…

VIKAS (smiles)

Yes papa…

Vikas gets up and brings the newspaper. While coming back towards Akash, he starts reading the front page tile of the article about the gay IPC 377.

“SC Makes Homosexuality A Crime Again”

He comes to Akash and sits near him along with the newspaper.

11)INT.SMALL ROOM – LATE EVENING

Same two young college students (gay couple), come back home from college canteen after chatting with other friends. While changing their dresses and wearing comfortable home dresses, they (fair and dark complexion, Arnab and Akash) start arguing for paying extra attention to the other guy and girl respectively. Arnab, being little shy, changing in the room and Akash is changing in the drawing room.

Shortly the argument hits up and they start fighting with each other with full strength. Fighting stops only after one gets injured with a bleeding nose.

Arnab realizes his mistake and goes to say sorry and help him out. He throws Arnab outside and closes the door from inside and opens the water tap.

Arnab continues knocking the door and requests him to open and show him his nose.

VIKAS

Hmmm, tao thik.

AKASH

Je konta beshi koster,

VIKAS

AKASH

Nah, kichhu na!

VIKAS

Achha Papa, eta to government rule,

AKASH

Hmmm, keno?

VIKAS

Tahole ki ekhaneo SC/ST-ra chaar paabe?

AKASH (laugh)

SC/ST discount, huh…

Their conversation and pampering goes on while Vinita runs her mixer to make apple shake.

Vinita enters into the drawing room with two glasses of apple shake and gives to both of them.

VINITA

Adikhyeta jato!

Pran-jurano topic peyechhe,

AKASH

Vini, ki tumi!

VINITA

AKASH

VINITA (with satire)

Aachha, aboshyo tumi Jodi na

Vinita leaves the drawing room and enters into kitchen to keep groceries and vegetables in place.

VINITA

Dekhi ki enechho.

Akash and Vikas start drinking the shake and continues chatting in front of the TV. Vinita takes out the vegetables and groceries one by one and starts keeping into refrigerator and modular cupboards.

VINITA

Eta ki korechho tumi?

AKASH (from drawing room)

Keno, ki hoyechhe?

VINITA (satire)

Ki abar hobe, dokandar dekhei bujhechhe!

AKASH

Ja khushi bolo na!

Bhalo alu chhilo na,

tai alpo enechhi.

VINITA

Keno?

baki dokani-ra tomake alu dey na, naki?

Akash doesn't say anything else; he keeps quite and finishes his drink. Vikas takes a sip from her glass and continues watching TV. Vinita starts segregating groceries from the bag. Everything, vegs and grocery packets, look wet and smelling badly. She takes out the paper bag looks completely wet from outside and finds four cracked eggs inside. She quickly takes out the eggs. Her both hands messed up with the egg while and a yolk falls onto the puja flower. By seeing her face anyone can make out how many eggs got cracked.

VINITA (with anger)

Akash, ekhane eso ektu?

AKASH

Abar ki holo?

Vinita doesn't wait for Akash to come to the kitchen. She comes in front of Akash with the paper bag and stands in between TV and Akash.

VINITA

Ki holo? Eta ki?

Akash looks at the paper bag and sees the cracked eggs. He keeps quite and looks at Vinita.

VINITA

Ajke dim-gulo ektu carefully ante parte na?

AKASH

K’ta dim-i to!

VINITA

AKASH

VINITA

Aar kato phaltu bokbe!

Purohit elo bole, ekhon kotha theke abar sab…

During the whole time Vikas was sitting on the sofa, silently. He was little afraid and uncomfortable. His eyes were filled with tears when he comes to Vinita.

VIKAS

Mom, Papa to tomake ballo je…

VINITA

Tomake kato bar bolechhi je baro-der kathaay interfere korbe na!

Vikas started crying and left the drawing room. He takes stairs towards his room. Vinita continues scolding her husband and dials a number from her mobile and talks to the purohit.

VINITA

Hello, Thakur moshai…

13) INT. BED ROOM - AFTERNOON

VINITA

Shono baby.

VIKAS

Both of them keep quite for a while. Vikas looks at Vinita.

VINITA

VIKAS

You know Mom, I love you...

VINITA (wet eyes)

Jani baby!

VIKAS

Kintu ki balo-to,

Tears roll down from his eyes, Vinita looks right into Vikas’s eyes to hear his next word.

VIKAS (crying)

Ekdin amio… kharap hoye jaabo!!

Vikas bursts in cry. She gets up from her mom's lap and leaves the room immediately. Speechless and shocked Vinita, sitting on the bean bag, watches Vikas leaving. One tear drop comes out from her eye and starts rolling on her cheek. She opens her diary, cross the word ‘ALL’ and continues writing...

LIFE IS ALL NOT ABOUT SOMEONE’S REMINDING PAST.

IT’S ALL ABOUT LIVING THE PRESENT!

14) INT. BED ROOM – NIGHT

Akash enters into the bed room. Vinita was waiting for him. Akash takes his shirt off and goes towards the bed to lie down and rest. Vinita holds his hand and pulls him near to her.

Akash’s naked back side shoulder clearly reveals the pink triangle (inside heart shape) tatu.

Vinita looks at his eyes.

VINITA

I’m sorry…!

Kintu, tumio jano ami keno tomar songe

Erakom bebohar kori.

[ END OF FLASHBACK ]

13. EXT. BANK OF THE POND – EVENING

After a while Vikas, with self realization, gets up from the pond. He slowly walks towards the bank of the pond. He picks up the wallet and affectionately looks at the wallet picture of his with parents. Slowly Vikas starts walking.
