INT.CITY HOSPITAL,NIGHT
THE AMBULANCE MAKES ITS WAY THROUGH THE TRAFFIC.IT’S A
DOWNPOUR OF RAIN,AND THE CLIMATE SEEMS MORE WORSE THAN
BEFORE.SOON,THE AMBULANCE PASSES BY THE INFAMOUS JOGESHWARI
TEMPLE,EAST OF SECTOR 8.THE HELPLESS FATHER IS
BROKEN,PLEADING THE DIETY TO GIFT HIM THE LIFE OF HIS SON.

MR.DAS
You are the creator.You are the
destroyer.Destroy me but not my son
for he is yet to serve his tasks in
life.I am done.I might be a burden
on this earth even.Do sacrifice me
but on the same account,I plead
you,beg you for my son.
Soon The Army of Traffic cops,commands the traffic to move
further and overcomes the traffic congestion issue.In half
an hour the ambulance reaches the hospital.The patient is
been translocated to the ICU.He breaths slowly,his pulse
rate is slow.
MR.DAS
Doctor,My son…..Please save him.
DR.VYAS
Do not panic..Let me see to it.God
is gracious.He’ll definitely save
your son… and I am the slave of
the almighty.So……
EXT.CHARLES DRIVE ,NIGHT
The street lights shines dim.The night roars and the wind
blows strong,taking with it watever it can.
Shashank,drives through one of the empty lanes of the
city.He rides his car as fast as he can.Meanwhile,he
encounters a direct light falling on his eyes…..
SHASHANK
Why are you chasing me?I suppose,I
didn’t do anything wrong to you.
ROHIT
You were wrong brother.The day
shall haunt you ever……
SHASHANK
(Looks directly into his eyes) The
truth lies with me.You are a fake to knock me down.You’re……Wait,Where are you going.let me complete……

Shashank,is taken aback for a while.He unlocks his car and
jumps into the seat without any further lag.He reaches to
his destination.
INT.THE RENDEZVOUS,NIGHT
The lights promulgates its spark.The Seven star cuisine is a
warm welcoming place,for the Tourists.The guard waves at him
and takes him inside to the reception.
AMANDA
Welcome to the Rendezvous sir.How
can I help you?
SHASHANK
I’ve booked a room yesterday,could
you pass me the keys.I am really
tired.Check for Shashank das.
AMANDA
Sorry sir,But I cannot see here any
booking by the name you’ve said.The
room number booked at 12am
yesterday belongs to someone named
Rohit gupta.Sorry from our team
sir!
SHASHANK
How can you not convey me the same
earlier?I booked it at sharp
12AM.Who the hell is Rohit?Let me
have a word with him….Make it
fast!I need to sleep at the
earliest for I have a meeting
tomorrow.
AMANDA
Sir,He is yet to come.He said,He’ll
be there by 3AM…..(looking down
at the floor)
Shashank walks towards his car.He jumps into his car and
leaves the place without a second thought of staying over
there.

INT.BUBBLE INC.(DAY)
The room is well equipped with as many people as the number
of chairs arranged.One seat remains vacant for Shashank.He
pulls it,with a minimal sound disturbing the rest.
MR.TYAGI
Settle yourself Shashank.You’re
fifteen minutes late for the
meeting.I hope you would get the
ideas dictated earlier….(raising
one of his eyebrows)
SHASHANK
I’ll make that sure sir.Let’s
proceed further..(with a grin on
his face)
Shashank looks at the swaying hands of The presenter.He
hears to what he says but all of a sudden,his eyes rests on
the shimmering ring on one of his fingers.
MR.TYAGI
I hope you’re getting it,
Shashank.What would you like to add
on to grow our venture overseas.A
leap in the previous month has
caused a greater threat.What are
the possibilities for a rise?
SHASHANK
You’re mistaken sir.My name is
Manan…Manan Purohit!
THE MEETING IS OVER.SILENCE SCREECHES IN THE ROOM,MAKING
EVERYTHING ELSE INAUDIBLE.SHASHANK,WALKS UPTO THE MIRROR.TO
HIS AMAZE,ROHIT AND ANUJ STAND BEHIND HIM,DARTING WORDS UPON
HIM.
SHASHANK (cont’d)
Stop guys!I did not kill her,it was
just an accident….The fire burnt
everything.It has turned my life to
ashes infact….(with heavy sobs)
ROHIT
Fear the lord.She cried your
name…cried for your help.What did
you do,leave her to die?
MANAN
You could have saved her.She was
all yours,wasn’t she?The sin is been done by you and your destined
hour rests with the fate.You have
to leave!
Shashank feels that his head is heavy.Soon does he starts
shivering and hits against the wall.He Faints.
THE DOOR BEHIND HIM OPENS WITH A JERK, FRAGMENTING A PART OF
IT.THE LIGHTS GO OFF.AND THE MIRROR SEEMS A BIT FADED.
INT.CITY HOSPITAL,NIGHT
The red light turns off.and the door of the ICU opens.The
doctor comes out in a jiffy,fetches the nurse instead.
DR.VYAS
Come on quick!Get the
injection……..(in a quirky
voice)
Dr vyas shuts the door behind him.Mr Das peeps inside and
his awaiting eyes searches for his son’s one glance out of
the small space.
After four hours,the door opens again.The doctor,removes his
mask and marches towards his cabin.But he is obstructed.
MR.DAS
Doctor,Is he ok?…..(he gulps down
the lump of fear that sets in)
DR.VYAS
I am sorry Mr.Das,your
son………your son,is subjected
to coma for the next six months.The
fate has played its role despite
the team’s efforts….I am so
sorry.
The Time for mr.das stops.He is taken aback and his heart
pounds even faster.his nerves feel cold and Dark surmounts
despite the glowing lights.
Shashank is been a victim of multiple personality
disorder.He was in Pain.He was accused for losing his
wife.The fire burnt everything instead…………And the
screen shuts.
