DEEPIKA -“Let’s get one thing straight, I’m not. I love you. I want us to be a happy couple! I want to open up. I want to be brave like you. I can’t withstand the phase you are going through now, let’s face it together. Will you marry me?’’
ANUSHKA- ‘‘I am happy for you but why are you doing this for me? I don’t deserve it! I have never done anything for you. ’’
DEEPIKA- “When I met you, you were bold and smart. Unlike others like me, who shy away from society, YOU moved freely with an open face. I saw a fighter in you and gradually I fell in love."
ANUSHKA- “Love is unconditional. That’s what you will argue for now. Its valid only in movies! Don’t curse yourself, please! This society is very weak. I want to cry and I want to love, but all my tears have been used up. Tell me, when you think of love, do you think of pain? Usually we walk around and constantly believe ‘let them say’. But sometimes the truth arrives in you and you can’t get it off! Do you even understand what am I trying to convey? Listen Deepika, you have been my friend and that in itself is a tremendous thing for me! This society will hurt you thousand times and you will die psychologically! We can’t be a lesbian couple in India”
DEEPIKA- “Anything worth dying for is certainly worth living for! Society pushes us to pour out our beauty and uniqueness, so they can burn us alive for being a couple different from others. Live however you want to, society is always going to judge. Together we will make a perfect couple.
You see the Sun isn’t bright just because I or you or the society say it is. It just is. It was bright before I even knew the ‘word’ bright. I didn’t decide what it is, I ‘acknowledged’ what it is.
You aren’t worth something just because the society say you are. You just are. You were worth something before I even said anything.
I didn’t decide that you are, I 'acknowledged’ that you are. Similarly, the society will ‘acknowledge’ us! Will you marry me?”
ANUSHKA- “Yes, miracles do happen! Who would have thought as a lesbian in India, I will find love! It will be a fresh start for NEW INDIA. I love you too, Deepika!”
