Meera: Bhai, you are back. I am so happy to see you. After 7 long years huh? You don't miss me na?
Rahul: I am so sorry, behen. I missed you guys so much. I am so sorry na. But now that I am back, we will celebrate okay? Tomorrow's Holi right? The Holi arrangements are on me, Maa. You guys chill. Meera, come on, help me out.
Meera: I, I.....Bhai.
Maa: Arey Rahul, usko choro. Holi woli baad meh. You came after 7 long years, let me spoil you with the dishes I made for you. Come on. No excuses.
Rahul: Yes, Maa but tomorrow's is Holi na? Meera, Kuch bolo Yaar, Maa ko. Bahut arrangements Karna hai Yaar. This is my first Holi after 7 years.
Meera: Bhai....yes but...
Maa: Come with me, Rahul. Leave her. We don't celebrate Holi to be honest. Chemical wala colours aren't good for skin plus it's been years your dadu is no more.
Rahul: But, dadu jane k baad we celebrated Holi twice and Maa, natural colours are there toh. Is something wrong? Please tell me what's going on? Meera, Yaar?
Rahul: Behen, why are you stammering? Is everything fine?
Maa: Your sister got molested, few years back in a function of Holi, near Sweety's house. Happy? This is the reason why we no more celebrate Holi.
Rahul: What? And you guys didn't complain FIR?
Meera: We did, we did Brother. He's in jail. He's none other than Sweety's son, Lakshman.
Rahul: Lakshman k naam pe......ughhh! How dare he? Why didn't you guys tell me this before? Maa, why? Tell me? And most importantly Meera how long have you been not celebrating Holi?
Meera: I asked Maa, not to bother you with such news. I am doing good brother. Please don't worry.
Rahul: Bother? Are you serious? And Meera, for how long?
Meera: 3 years. I...I just can't. Sometimes, ....... haunts me.....I..... can't.
Rahul: Meera, 3 years? Behen, you can't just trap yourself like this. You can't and that too for a bad man who himself is shameless and fine. Meera, tomorrow's Holi. Come with me, Come with your family. You don't need to go out. There will be no outsider. We'll celebrate Holi. Let me fill your life with colours, Meera. You don't deserve darkness and dullness.
* They celebrated Holi, the next day. Meera overcame her fears and her nightmares came to an end. *
