‘’Hey come back?’’ I almost shouted.
‘’ Ummm’’ He seemed upset.
‘’So, you are missing Neelam?’’ I inquired.
‘’No, not really I hate that cheap girl’’
‘’Aham… Aham I am surprised, it was you who was crazy for her & now…. ‘’ I remarked. I did not like the way he called her cheap.
‘’ Yeah, I was stupid because she was a corrupt girl’’ He gave him the title of corrupt.
‘’ Oh my God! You should not use this type of words for her should you?’’I wanted to convince him that he was wrong.
‘’ why are you trying to defend her? Well please leave it. I do not want to discuss this topic any more. She was a corrupt girl & she will remain same. Nature can’t change. That’s all.’’ He annoyed.
‘’ ok we would not discuss it again but let me ask one thing that why are you blaming her? ‘’ I asked.
‘’ Ohoooo.. You know all the matter that she had an affair before our interaction. Thanks God I got it.’’ He told.
‘’ So what?’’ I again asked.
‘’ My dear sister, what you want that I should marry a girl who had an affair. How funny!’’ He laughed.
‘’If she is corrupt then you are too.’’ I angrily said.
‘’ Hahaha I am corrupt because I am refusing to marry a girl who had her emotional relationship with someone else. Our religion, culture values, society & the most important self respect my dear… No one accepts it. ‘’ He argued.
‘’ What about you? Let me remind you…. Hira the next door neighbor of us, you were Mad for her, then Malika your classmate, Jiya our first cousin, Neha your friend’s sister, then your university fellow Saleha, now you colleague Neelam… their may be many others about whom you have not told me.’’ I tried to remind his so called love affairs.
‘’ Hahaha… idiot. It does not matter for a boy.’’ He was laughing.
‘’ It matters… my dear brother… it really matters…
‘’Bad women are for bad men, and bad men are for bad women; and good women are for good men, and good men are for good women” (24:26)
I wanted to check his reaction.
‘’Oh come on, why are you taking it so much serious? Our society does not allow any girl to do so but a boy could. Now would you make a cup of tea please ’’ He wanted to change the topic.
‘’Umm… It means girls are precious. Agree?’’
‘’ Hahahaha…’’ He laughed but it was not a joke.
I really think that girls are precious that’s why society wants more fair behavior from them. But this precious creature demands more respect, more support & more justice. His laughter proved that he would not accept it. Would you?
