He dressed perfectly for the party, got a big bouquet for Prema , had a small drink and started for his inlaws house. He was sure that his life would change with this marriage. A wealthy man 's only daughter---both beautiful and clever was going to marry him. He had tried hard to make her fall for him and even more harder to keep his previous affairs secret. His only thought now was to quickly get married and become inheritant to her property.
When \Raj reached Prema's house , he found it beautifully decorated and swing with activity. He was cordially invited inside and taken to the big hall where the party was to begin. He was made to sit and offered a drink. 'Uncle where is Prema?' he asked with honey buttered voice.Before his to be uncle answered, Prema entered looking gorgeous. She looked like a angel from heaven showering all good things on him. The music played there was rocking. the lights pleasant to the eye and relatives and friends busy entertaining each other. Raj had something to eat, again a peg and then started becoming impatient. His uncle was busy entertaining his guests. He found no trace of his uncle introducing him to the guests as his son-in law. He called Prema and asked about this. She smiled beautifully and said 'my dad is waiting for the most important people to come.please have patient.'SO Raj had no other go but wait.
'but why?' Raj was completely confused. 'because we have got complaints from women that you cheated them in the name of love and marriage.' but '....'who has given complaint against me'Raj stammered. 'WE' came voices from all sides. Out came the three ladies Geetha, Radha and Aruna from the three different rooms. They were his ex lovers whom Raj had cheated in the previous affairs. 'but uncle this is your prestige issue . you willnot like your son in law to be hand cuffed. you have to do something.'Raj turned towards his would be father-in-law and shouted in anger. 'Yes I have done something. I have only called the cops . I will not sit quietly and watch my daughter's life fall in wicked hands. The day my daughter told about you I started enquiring about you I came to know about your character . I could have got you arrested you long back. but it was my daughter who had this plan. she didnot want any other woman to get cheated by you after she quit.' Prema came forward and sarcastically,''cops take him into custody.'' Now she didnot look like an angel but like goddess Durga who punishes wrong doers. Raj understood that his life had indeed changed that evening. He had not got wife or wealth but only punishment and prison. That evening had indeed put him on fire not the one which gave energy or escatsy but the one which enlightned him . Hope he comes out of the prison as a changed man just like gold comes out pure after taken out from fire.
