Inba: "Wow, who is that lucky fellow?"
Prathiba: "He is here in this place only"
Saying this, Inba and Pooja got tensed and this time it was a shocking surprise for Inba as Prathiba do not know anyone in that group other than him. Same way as Pooja too and she got nervous.
Pooja thought to herself that Prathiba should not take her place that she broke the news upfront in front of all of them...
There was a big silence where each and everyone were just looking each other's face mainly Inba and Pooja.
Prathiba: "What!! Why all are silent and no one is opening their mouth?"
Priyanka: "Only you have to tell..."
Pointing to Indra, Prathiba said "Can I tell or..."
Saying this, Inba got shocked and gave a surprising look at Indra.
Indra: "Bro, I have been thinking about this for quite sometime to tell you, but didn't know how to tell this. We both are in love for few months and we have decided to getting married, so I thought this would be the right time to tell you and Priyu"
Inba: "What??? How did you know about her? When did you meet her? I am still in a state of shock..."
Indra: "Sorry Inba, sorry Priyu... I should have told you guys when I proposed her itself. It's my mistake only."
Inba: "It's ok, don't be sorry.. But tell me how and when you both met?"
Prathiba: "Indra came to my office @ Bangalore for Corporate training and during one on one Q&A session, we got to talk to each other for sometime. Before calling you to tell that I got an offer and going to Bangalore, I visited your house as I thought of telling you in person that I am moving to Bangalore. At that time I met Indra at your home. So when he came to Bangalore, we became good friends and we went out for lunch couple of times and liked each other and he proposed me." and gave a smiling look at Indra.
Inba gave a big sigh and told "Hmmm.... Many things happened in silence.. If you both like each other, then no issues for me. It's your life and you guys have to decide. I know personally both of you and you both make out a good pair. I know little more about Indra than Prathiba. So, on Indra's decision I can't interfere... But, did you tell this to mom?"
Indra: "No bro, we just want to tell this to you first and then only rest. Only you have to tell her. I am feeling shy"
Inba: "Rascal, for your love, why do I have to tell her? You face her. You know to propose and also decide to get married, but don't have the guts to say mom?"
Indra: "No bro, not like that"
Inba: "Hey!! Chill... I am just pulling your leg.. No worries, I will tell this matter to mom..
What Prathiba, happy now?"
Prathiba: "Yes Inba, very happy now. Feeling relaxed. Didn't think you will accept it so easily."
Indra: "I told you right, that my bro is a very good person and he will not be against it"
All had a hearty laugh...
Inba: "Then, tonight's dinner for all of us will be sponsored by Indra and Prathiba at our usual chat center. Unlimited orders"
Indra: "Done deal"..
Both Indra and Prathiba joined their hands and sat together in the table next to each other with a hearty smile to each other.
Pooja now looked at Inba and at the same time Inba gave a look at Pooja.

Since Indra wanted to sit next to Prathiba, he asked Pooja to change her place which made her sit next to Inba.
Pooja noticed a young girl of their age with Mehandi all over her hands and in a glamorous salwar walking towards towards them. Since Inba was sitting in the opposite direction, he couldn't see that girl coming.
Suddenly his phone rang and it was the same ringtone which he has set right from the day he was having the mobile. The ringtone was a funny laugh of a baby. Recognizing the tune, the girl turned towards the table where these guys were seated. Before Inba could attend the call and see who was calling him, the call got cut. He then noticed that the call was from Poorvi.
So he stood up to redial, but he felt a hand on his shoulder. He turned to see Poorvi standing behind him with a smile on her face at him.
Inba was in a dilema whether to smile at her back or what because of the last incident happened between them. Before he could open his mouth, Poorvi started...
Poorvi: "How are you dear?"
Inba: "Hey, hi... How are you doing?"
Poorvi: "You didn't expect that I would come here right? I thought you would call me and speak to me atleast once after I left your house. It's ok."
Inba: "Sorry Poorvi, I didn't mean to, but I was very busy with my work at office and home"
Poorvi: "Ok, I didn't come here for any arguments or talking about what had happened. I have come here mainly to tell you that I got engaged and I am getting married next month"
Inba: "Is it? Great. Congrats. I just wanted to say sorry to you for what had happened on that day. And as you said I do not wish to argue on that, just felt like saying sorry. Hope you do not take me wrong."
Poorvi: "In fact I have to thank you for your response on that day which made me think and to say ok to the boy which my family had already seen for me. Btw, who is your sister here?"
Inba then introduced her to all others.
While they were talking, Pooja guessed that something happened between them in the past, but do not know what had happened. But one way she was happy that Poorvi got engaged.
Poorvi: "I didn't know these many are there. I just brought 2 of my wedding invitations. I will go and send you all my invitations"
Inba: "No worries Poorvi, we all are in the same family only. So only one invitation is enough. We all will definitely attend.
You want anything to drink or eat?"
Poorvi: "No thanks. I do not feel like eating or drinking anything now. Moreover my Fiancé is waiting downstairs at the parking lot, so I need to go."
Inba: "Hey, call him inside. I want to show you all an important one. Please call him"
Poorvi called her fiancé over phone. Meanwhile, when Inba said that he wanted to show something important, Pooja started to think what could be that.
Poorvi's fiancé came to the cafeteria and all got introduced. Slowly that place become crowded with more noise coming out of their gossips.
All left the cafeteria. At that time Pooja asked "where are we going now?"
Inba: "There are 3 halls and you have seen 2 out of it. One more is there to see and it would take some time to see. That's why I thought of having a coffee break"
All of them entered into the third small room. It was comparatively darker than the other 2 halls. In this room, there was no multiple displays, rather there was only one huge picture of size 10 feet height and 8 feet in width was displayed with soothing warm lights flashing from multiple directions.
When they went near the picture, Pooja could see that it is not just a single picture but a picture collage having more than 40 people's face and few animals like dog, cow, tiger, elephant etc. It also had some sceneries like mountain, river, falls, hut house, farm land, trees and others.
Under the picture, was something scribbled, but she couldn't identify what it is. All she could see was faces of Indra, Priyanka, Poorvi, Inba's mom, and many others which she didn't know. But she couldn't see her face in that collage. So her inquisitiveness towards the incident happened at the cafeteria was eating her brain. but she couldn't ask him directly as where her picture was.
Poorvi could see that her face was also there in the collage and was happy seeing that. She shown that to her fiancé.
Both Poorvi and Pooja asked Inba at the same time. "What is this collage about and what does it depict?"
Inba explained each and every face in that collage and told them that all these people came across in his life and made some sort of mark in his life and that collage depicts his life.

Saying that, Pooja felt bad because she was not there in that collage. But in that room was a mirror exactly opposite to that Collage which none of them in that group noticed.
Since Pooja was behind Shivani, Shivani wanted to see Pooja and see her emotions as how she feels at that time. While turning back, she noticed that mirror and could see a beautiful and marvellous picture of Pooja and the scribbling under that collage was a mirror image of "Pooja" being written.
Actually the whole collage portrayed a single image of Pooja bending down on shyness. Shivani couldn't believe her eyes and wanted to call Pooja and tell her that.
Inba noticed Shivani that she saw that and gave her a sign not to reveal that to Pooja. Shivani gave him a smile back.
Poorvi noticed that silently, and then only saw the mirror behind her. It was such a beautiful painting she had ever seen. Then she thought to herself that the decision she took was the right decision as Inba was not interested on her at all and he treated her as just a friend and nothing more than that.
Out of the happiness, Poorvi shouted "Wow" which made Pooja turn and see her. In that process, she also happened to see the image in the mirror and couldn't believe her eyes. She saw a wonderful image of her with her name below and above the collage was written "My Life". For few seconds she was out of breathe and nothing rolled in her mind. She was speech struck for few seconds. After that many things peeped in her mind and tears came out of her eyes out of happiness and anxiety. Inba shot a video capturing all her expressions after seeing the picture.
Pooja saw Inba and he just gave her a simple but a loving smile and just nodded to her as if asking her to come near him.
Pooja moved towards him in baby steps and didn't know what to do, whether to say anything to him or what....
Inba opened his arms to hug her and Pooja swiftly went and hugged him tightly and cried out loud. Butterflies flew in both of their stomachs and they didn't care about others watching them. It was one of the best love proposals ever made so far.
Both didn't speak even a word but their actions and eye contacts spoke million words where only both of them understood.
Reporters from few magazines came for highlighting the art work done by Inba and Priyanka. They captured few moments of their best love proposal as well. After seeing few flashes, Pooja realized the situation and took her hands off him.
She wiped her tears and still was not out of the great happiness she had ever had in her life. She wanted to shout out loud to the God and thank him for giving her a best loving friend / partner. She went and hugged Shivani, Priyanka and Prathiba as well. Poorvi congratulated Pooja for a great life ahead and Pooja wished her back for her marriage.
It became such a romantic scene in front of all the visitors.
One of the visitors came and asked him to explain the collage for which Inba answered that the collage contains the faces of most important persons whom he had met in his life and who left him a mark on his heart, but on the whole, his life is Pooja. On hearing that, Pooja wanted to hug him again and kiss him, but since its a public place and all are around them including the reporters, she controlled herself, but gave a crying and at the same time a smiling look at Inba.
Though all the pictures in the gallery had some price tag in them, this picture alone had a small sticker saying "Not for Sale".
Indra and Priyanka were happy to get a good sister in law and congratulated Pooja and welcomed her to their home.
After sometime, all of them came out of the exhibition hall and Indra told Inba that he would drop Prathiba in her home and come back.
Poorvi gave a parting good bye to all and reminded them to attend her marriage for sure.
Shivani understanding the situation told Inba that she would take care of Priyanka and drop her home leaving Inba and Pooja alone.
Inba agreed and joined the hand of Pooja and walked towards his bike. Pooja's face brightened thousand times and she wanted to hug him again, but she leaned on his shoulders and walked towards his bike.
Inba: "So, how do you feel now? Are you happy?"
Pooja: "Happy??? I am not getting any other word which is more than happiness. Thank you Inba. Thank you for choosing me your life partner. I didn't know you liked and loved me this much"
Inba: "Without Shivani I wouldn't have got your profile picture"
Pooja: "What? Shivani?"
Inba: "Yeah, I asked her your picture long back which she had in her mobile. I used it for making this collage. Even she didn't know for what purpose I asked for as I asked even her picture in order not to create any doubtfulness in her mind."
Pooja: "You are very much talented Inba. I am really blessed"
Inba: "Infact, I should say that I am too blessed to have you as my life partner"
Pooja: "Is it? Why?"
