Summer eventide. 5 PM. Barber Bhagwan Dass closes downbound the shutters of his store. He would see his human Ram Dass today he decides. He would bring up to date him everything, innocently. His both scrape.
Oh! Is nowadays not Tuesday? He puzzles to himself. Ram Dass may perhaps deliberation that he has travel to him to get his hair clean-shaven. Would he let him do his job today?
No, no, no. He doesn't want to bring in his shaving. No shave- no shave- nowadays. He needs currency and hopes into Ram Dass. Might Ram Dass get him ten thousands for six vii months to have power over the wedding of his daughter?
Ram Dass is docile he thinks. Very gentle. And he good wishes his composer human too. His in-law as well subject matter him, calls him 'good-master-connoisseur' Why shouldn't she nickname him master connoisseur? He trims her velvety quill tresses with adroitness. He hopes that she may perhaps likewise come onwards to relief him.
When he visits his home, he sees Ram Dass name in the verandah. Uncalled coming together. His intuition pulsates in foreboding. With giant difficulty, he makes an toadyish bash mildly on the movable barrier.
"Ram Prasad Ji" And shouts into the takings.
"Come, come, yaar" Ram Prasad, wearing a breechclout and chappal, greets him from in and noses up his spectacles. Bhagwan Dass folds his hands sycophantly.

"Come, sit here" He offers him a quiver chair. Sinking into chair, Bhagwan Dass remembers- how humanely Ram Prasad would have helped him at the time of his want. At the clip of his sr. daughter's marriage, he had rented him twenty 5 thousands beside a extraordinarily tiny pizzazz. So kind-hearted he is!
"Why not, why not; you're my immaturity chum, yaar. I'm particularly present to see you" Bhagwan Dass remembers- how they cared for each remaining once they were in DPS (Delhi Public School) in Delhi. Then they both had the same financial distinction. How naughtily- they mutually flirted next to the fashionable, arrogant girls. Ha, ha, ha; now departed are the life.
"Hundred percent really, yaar" Bhagwan Dass guffaws and claps onto friend's appendage. After a shortened chat, Bhagwan Dass whispers mildly.
"Yaar, I've travel to you next to a hope"
"Hope?" Ram Prasad scrutinizes his expressions. Smile on his orifice evaporates
"Yes, I stipulation whatsoever cache for the wedlock of my daughter"
"Marriage?" Moneylender Ram Prasad thinks for a spell later denies forthright.
"Sorry yaar, you know- I'm badly off these days" And he makes his facial expression. Bhagwan Dass disappoints. He does not expect this genre behaviour from formative years pal. Moreover, bar Ram Dass- no in the settlement is competent to be up to his hopes. He is the just shark in the small town who can alter coins to one and all. Why he refuses to his chum? Bhagwan Dass seriously hurts. Astonishes. Does he privation large seasoning from him also? Fleece him?
"Is your hair salon not favourable running, yaar?" Ram Prasad feigns submissiveness.
"Not is this reason, sethji?" He casts trailing his eyes, humiliates. Begging medium of exchange is genuinely discreditable.
"They grouping demand dowry" Bhagwan Dass winces. And thought stuff near bodily process. Ram Prasad's relative-in-law comes with two cups of drinkable holding in a receptacle.
"Namaste" When she buzzes, Bhagwan Dass hopes into her sentiment too.
"Chacha Ji, why are you sad, today?" Bhagwan Dass, answerless- shoots a outer shell into scene sun. When she goes, Ram Prasad utters.
"I think- you're enraged near me, Master. Aren't you?"

"No, no sethji- how can I be livid with you?" And his view untie drops of hose short. Moneylender moves to emotions, humbles out. Everything is clean off. He understands.
"Master, how untold you need? I try to arrange, yaar" He speaks smaller quantity professionally more than decently - "You're my early years chum, yaar"
"Ten thousands- at least" Bhagwan Dass utters hastily.
"Ten thousands...huu...they may perhaps get overflowing interest" Moneylender tries to fleece him.
"High interest, I shall pay, I shall pay" Bhagwan Dass speaks stridently as if fashioning a pledge. But he senses that his individual is exasperating to ryegrass him. How far some his infancy crony has changed? He is now absolutely a assorted guy?
Then interview takes a turn, Ram Prasad enquires snobbishly.
"Master, what about groom? Is he a bang-up guy?"
"Good guy? Yes, yes" Bhagwan Dass says with confidence.
"How much he earns?"
"Sethji, to shout approval him perchance would be a big have a word from a irrelevant orifice. He is rumoured to be a angelic earn" Confidence mixes up beside swollen-headed.
"Does he run business?"
"No, he is in rule service, sethji, works in DEO office"
"You know, he is Diwan Chand's son" He adds.
"Diwan Chand?" Ram Prasad feels a discordant zest on his lingua.
"Diwan Chand?" He sees his montage unsettled since his sentiment.
"Diwan Chand?" He disgusts, grows at sea.
"Diwan Chand?" Perspiration resorts to his temple.
"Diwan Chand?" He shouts rudely.
"Fie! Fie! Fie! You single out Diwan Chand's irrational son for Madhu daughter? Is Madhu beti going to be married with that idiot?"
"He is not a bit idiot, sethji" Bhagwan Dass says as if defensive himself.
"Huh! Not a bit idiot" Ram Prasad tosses his some keeping upon windowpanes
"I cognize well again to Diwan Chand, Master. Better to forget this spousal relationship other I would not dispense you notes for wedding ceremony next to that monster" Bhagwan Dass does not respond. Mutely, he stands from chair (as if a majestic prince) and folds his hands.
"Namaste" He reaches at the door. Moneylender amazes. Should he let his buyer go unfleeced? No, no, no.
"Where're you going, yaar? Hold, hold" A hurt clasp cards him.
"I would not let you tarnish the duration of Madhu beti" He yells artificially. "Yaar, try to know me. I'm far more than in a world of your own give or take a few Madhu female offspring. Diwan Chand is a deceit man I cognize and his son Shyam too stalking his distance. Yaar, you're my babyhood pal. Can I take in on you?" He cautiously tries to carry him. Then he pauses for a patch. Bhagwan Dass sits on seat once again. He sulks.
Next day, afraid Bhagwan Dass enquires in the order of the boy. Does his infancy crony answer truth?
No, no, no. He listens to distinct accounts of hostility betwixt Diwan Chand and Ram Prasad. They both had grooved a dairy product writing age rear. He hears. When any cow died in cold, they suspect all other than for the loss. When the dairy closed, they some combined in a factory where they once more could not see eye to eye next to all some other.
Later, Ram Prasad was separate from industrial plant on the rush of fraud. But he had tested to snare Diwan Chand in the fit-up. Diwan Chand was an trusty man. Nothing had proved hostile him. He had detected all these property from old kin.
Then, Ram Prasad started lending business on zing and after that it became his activity and began to succeed day by day. As against, Diwan Chand complete his feature in works truthfully and attained plenty. With firm earned money, he got educational activity to his son Shyam and in step him in DEO place of business as a junior employee.
Indeed, Bhagwan Dass had heard everything nearly Diwan Chand and his son sympathetic.
He was confident by himself that daughter would be content with Shyam. Moreover, they ancestors demanded petite gift.
Again, once Bhagwan Dass meets Ram Prasad in gurudwara, he asks.
"Master, have you of all time met Shyam Lal personally"
"Ji, sethji" He expresses with joy.
"Does he not give the impression of being guile to you?" He asks additional with a trivial bun of mocking beam on lips.
"No, sethji" Taking prasad from him, Bhagwan Dass says with pride.
"Sethji, he is a gold, processed gold"
Fie, fie, fie.
"Fie on you if you feel so, master? You are perfectly a injudicious man" Bhagwan Dass, in response, speaks relative quantity.
At evening, Ram Prasad visits Bhagwan Dass.
"Master, forget him, bury him" He cries in an gush of unhappiness. Bhagwan Dass- horrified- begins to wince.
"Don't be upset, master" Ram Prasad placates him- "Don't be upset"
"I shall just you another well-favoured guy. A well deep-seated business organisation man. And I am firm you would be happy to have that boy your in-law. Would you privation to see him?"
"Sure, in no doubt. I'm obligated to you, sethji. Really- you've a boy for my daughter? Really?" Master barber crouches fuzz obsequiously.
"Stop, let me be evidence of you his photograph" Ram Prasad twinkly egoistically thrills. He shows him picture sportfishing out of his pant pouch.
"See, see, how smart a boy is?
"Jagmohan?" Master samuel barber at past recognizes the boy.
"He is a loafer, sethji" He delivers his judgment.
"No, no, no"
"And I cognise he drinks also"
"No, no, no" Ram Prasad pats his buddy gently.
"Look, exterior at the domestic. He is the solitary son of city's richest cereal agent. Madhu beti would be happy, dear" Ram Prasad adds- "And now, he has specified up alcohol and idling. Barber artist nods but his hunch sinks. Should he unify his girl to a loafer? No, no, no. Jagmohan is a moneyed. Very abundant. Should Madhu not bask the delight of life? Ram Dass says.
"He has given up his bad habits- wine, idling etc."
"Sethji, delight don't net a derision of me. I'm a inferior man. How may perhaps I confer them dowry?" Bhagwan Dass laments.
"Dowry? Forget it, bury it. They're pleasant associates. They inevitability no dowry" Ram Prasad says as if guaranteeing him. Bhagwan Dass does not ease.
"Sethji, endow with me time to deduce almost it"
"Ok, ok, ok" And side by side day, samuel barber artist head-on refuses to accept his gambit. Ram Prasad feels a bump onto his maw.
Bastard, bastard, spurious. I shall administer you money! Huh! I shall borrow you money! Huh! My member gives you currency. Huh! Bewakoof. After days, once barber artist begs backing on higher interest, Ram Prasad cries.
"You're my friend, pal. Huh! Even foes are improved than you, master" In fury, his high lip shows the tips of set. Bhagwan Dass sinks into awful gag. Fifteen proceedings after, once artist samuel barber tries to walk out of the room, Ram Prasad holds his mitt.
"Tell, tell, have you property in me? Trust in me?" Bhagwan Dass nods. Eyes refulgence near drops of crying.
"You contemplate I fool you, discover you. I'm your youth chum, yaar. Might you recollect we were in the aforesaid hostel liberty in DPS Delhi?" Ram Prasad gushes next to (fake) emotions. He takes his friend's keeping into his and glances into his view.
"I shall bestow you cache. How overmuch you need? I shall arrange it. Twenty? Thirty? Forty thousands?" Ram Prasad's shyness seems hypocritical.
"I impoverishment my formative years sidekick to be paradisaic. Always happy" Master samuel barber grins, crimp hands, flashes opinion in worship.
"But, it is a problem" He moves his orifice gracelessly.
"Problem?" Master barber amazes.
"No problem, no nuisance. I'm to the full with you. They people can poorness the written account of your house...otherwise...yaar, they are hesitant to give us money"
"I warranty you, instinct guarantee" Ram Prasad presses his some keeping. Bhagwan Dass- a patent man as compared to moneylender- smiles innocently.
"Would they get hindmost my written account after I pay them?"
"Why not? Why not? Sure, yaar" He says examining friend's despondent human face.
Next day, Master barber submits him the registry of his stately home and gets twenty thousands on two proportion unit of time seasoning.
Fifteen life before the marriage, once maestro samuel barber shows his inability to pay the involvement on gold in advance, Ram Prasad- youth crony cocks.
"Oh, no problem, no question. Can you dairy product the cow?"
"Yes, yes, yes" Bhagwan Dass is authority in this idea. He too has a set of two kine at earth and milks her regular. And he accepts the job of milking the cow in Ram Prasad's burrow gladly.
Next morning, his due starts. He emerges at morning 5 and makes delighted sethaniji next to his adeptness in milking the cow. It smoothens for iv v life. Then, a doomsday day comes once cow grows seething and hits master samuel barber onto his accurate eye and makes him tritanopic everlastingly. Ram Prasad stuns to see the tissue layer to his leftmost eye disappointingly destroyed.
A time period is disappeared to the union of his female offspring. Ram Prasad admits his partner in health facility. Ophthalmic medical science is through. Madhu grows sad and deflated. Motherless fille has with the sole purpose one anticipation in life- her parent. She hopes into Ram Prasad and calls him chachaji.
"Chachaji, oblige hide away my bauji (father), oblige...please...please..."
"We're hard female offspring...trying" Madhu remembers- geezerhood back, once her jhaiji (mother) was admitted in hospital, it was the single Ram Prasad- chachaji- who had helped his parent with assets. Ram Prasad is genuinely a docile man, Madhu thinks.
"Is it not better-quality we should postpone the conjugal for days" On the day of surgery- maestro samuel barber implores his pal.
"No, no, don't bother. We'll put in order it, yaar" Madhu, who has independent holding in Ram Prasad assures her parent that he should not problem give or take a few her at all. Ram Prasad promises him that he would do his fastest to trade name the bridal a happening. Madhu visits healthcare facility every so frequently to fix your eyes on after her parent. Bhagwan Dass is unable to ascertain her the print of bridegroom. He begs Ram Prasad to spectacular her picture of her married person.
"Don't worry, don't worry, I shall be evidence of her everything- his photo, his ethnic group photos and dower etc. You filch rest, yaar" Bhagwan Dass feels relaxing. He is confident.
The Day of wedlock comes and Madhu gets mated. Nurses in medical wing let somebody know him-it is a bang-up wedlock. Madhu weeps...weeps... She misses her male parent remarkably by a long chalk bauji...bauji...bauji...But Bhagwan Dass is happy, drunk. In happiness, he begins to bounce on private clinic bed. His childhood sidekick has through a out of this world job. Thank you, friend- convey you immensely substantially. A nurse tells him that his mate has dog-tired expensively on the union of his daughter.
Two years later, Ram Prasad appears in clinic. Bhagwan Dass hugs him. Hug- hug- hug. Thank friend, give thanks you outstandingly some.
"No, no, no. In friendship, no gratitude...no appreciation at all" Bhagwan Dass smiles delightedly. Ram Prasad tells him that Madhu is thrilled.
"Is my female offspring happy?" A wide smiling runs onto his external body part. Really a honest phenomenon is pleased on him, artist barber reflects.
"Oh God, you're so class...kind. I warmth you God" He folds his guardianship towards cobalt sky. Really God has come to him in the style of his pal. In the profile of Ram Prasad.
He had heard from contrasting camp that in worldly world, God sole is accomplished but move no footprints. God is invisible, performs miracles. And it is correct. Hundred pct apodictic. His surgical commercial activity had been victoriously done. God himself had ready-made all planning. He is helpful that he would see the international again once his binding unfolds.
Optometrist promises him that he would unfold the wrapping mean solar day. Bhagwan Dass begs Ram Prasad to transfer Madhu to medical wing next to her bridegroom. He wants to see his daughter near married person. How exquisite she will visage he thinks. He requests his daughter should be nighest to him at the example of his feat from hospital.
Then, hospice phone box rings. It is for Bhagwan Dass from girl. Nurse gives him baby's bed.
"It's for you, sir; it is for you, sir"
"Madhu beti, are you happy? Would you move to hospice tomorrow?" Daughter's voice seems him a tuneful sound of a saphead. He is bursting with exultation to listen in to the music of suspicion to suspicion as if God is in speech communication near him.
"No, no, no" Daughter denies to locomote to hospital.
"Why? Why? Are you wrathful with me, daughter?" Master barber prehension the baby's bed next to much seizing.
"I was inept to be in progress in your marriage, beti"
"No, no, bauji" Bhagwan Dass consequently stuns hearing the sobs of girl. Is girl not lively beside her wedding ceremony near Shyam?
"What happened daughter? Are you not glad with Shyam?" He asks friction on his fixed.
"Shyam? Who Shyam, bauji?"
"Your husband? Your husband?" Bhagwan Dass develop suspicious.
"My husband?" She breaks into undomesticated weeping.
"I deprivation to declare to Shyam. Give him receiver, beta" Madhu, not sufficiently expert to control her breaths throws the receiver hair. There essential be thing incorrect in the wedding. Wrong- wrong- erroneous. He shrieks- rubs his immutable irritably- begs health professional to call her pay for. Nurse dials the amount. Bhagwan Dass near a rush of emotions cries.
"Madhu- Madhu, describe me what happened, daughter? Are you not joyful near Shyam? Don't misgivings to say anything to me? I'm your father, daughter"
"Bauji, I am paradisal. I am truly exceedingly joyous. Bauji now- Jagmohan is my hazard. He is my hubby. Bauji- you say- my married person is a man. Bauji, he smokes and comic my unit near angry cigarettes. Bauji, he is a cruel" She again breaks into tears. Bhagwan Dass is unable to perceive more.
Cruel- Cruel- Cruel- his worry echoes. He lets the set fall over down, flabbergasts. Everything is obvious similar crystal chalice. He sediment stationary and unarticulate.
"What happens, what happens, sir" Nurses on excise runs towards him.
"Nothing, nothing" He body of water on infirmary cot robotically.
