Amber stands next to Raj and Mahi and they walk to the front gate.
Amber: This school is different.
Raj: Yep, imagine you could say, this is the road where people get run over by.
Amber: Yep. Walking across the road and then bam, you just got hit.
Amber: What, it is true they could get hit. (They walk to the front gate and open it. A teacher comes walking to them.)
Teacher1: Welcome to the John Lyon School.
Amber: Okay, no. Why has Simran chosen this school?
Raj: What she means is we are holding an Indian event, so calling it John Lyon makes it sound a little bit weird.
Teacher1: Well, we can’t change the name of the school. But I know what you mean; actually a lot of religions come to this school. (A group of Indians walk past them and they all four watch them.)
Mahi: I see what you mean. I didn’t see one white face.
Teacher1: Anyway, should we proceed on?
Raj: Let’s go. (They walk off.)
Simran is in the living room with Leila.
Leila: Things have changed Simran. I have changed a person. I realised I need to stop being rude to people, as it doesn’t get me anywhere. Here I am, lost 2 sons; in this big house which I can’t afford and here they are in big houses, big cars and still have their husbands and sons. I am sorry that I said that you should marry Jay. You loved Avi. He helped you in every way. Just one way he didn’t, giving you a child. You forgave him but he could never forgive himself. After you lost the first one, it was a hard time for us. I am very sorry. What I am trying to say is that I was wrong to think wrong of you, and even hate my son Avi. I want to start over, and not for the business either, I am doing this to be a better person.
Simran: You don’t need to say anything. I am sorry too, for walking away. You must feel so bad going to the garba, remember? I am very sorry. Please attend this garba, it will be so fun and we can do garba together. After Avi died, all I wanted was to live with my mother-in-law, look after her. Please let me move back here.
Leila: We have just got together. We have to build our relationship before you move back here.
Simran: So that means there is a possibility I can.
Leila: Never say never.
Simran: So where is dad, and ba?
Leila: They both died, I have been living here alone.
Simran: I am so sorry.
Leila: Good things never happen to good people.
Simran: Well, you are good now, so you will get something good now.
Leila: Hope so.
Raj, Amber and Mahi enter the big BCH and are shocked.
Mahi: Rubbish, tell me where the room for the whole garba is. There won’t be any room for us to dance in a circle.
Teacher1: Well we can get rid of the stage and make it bigger.
Raj: It is perfect, plus dad told me that he has a few guests to invite.
Mahi: Great, guests and then the whole Patel community.
Raj: It will be perfect, don’t worry. (Raj gets a call and picks it up.) Hello mum.
Kajal: Hello, how is the school?
Raj: It is okay, Mahi says it is small but I think we will fix it up to make it bigger.
Kajal: Cool. Check out the school, see if it is good. You and Mahi have waited a very long time, you need to start try for a baby.
Raj: I will check but why would you want to move here, you do know the school is miles away.
Kajal: Obviously, we need to either move or stay and re-do the house. This house is a tip and it is on the verge of breaking down.
Raj: Okay mum, we will. Bye. (He puts the phone down and talks to Teacher1.) Any chance of you giving us a tour of the school.
Teacher1: You will be happy that we have a Gujarati department led by Miss Patel, so we will go through that on the tour. Then you could have some lunch here, it is curry night.
Amber: Sounds cool.
Mahi: Well, okay.
Devesh is in the office and he is still on the computer.
Devesh: I still can’t find how to get Cheryl Cole to perform at a garba celebration. But I will get her at any cost, I need her to perform. I need to find out a way as soon as possible, it will be the celebration in 3 days time. Come on Devesh think. How do I do this?
Mahi, Amber and Raj are outside.
Raj: How long is the teacher going to be? He is taking forever.
Mahi: I think he won’t be too long. (She turns around.) Wait look. (Everyone turns around and Min gets out of her car.)
Mino: Hi guys. (She walks up to them while three of them get angry.)
Raj: What the hell are you doing here?
Mino: Well I just wanted to help you look for a good school for the garba celebration. It is going to be great.
Amber: I hope you know that you aren’t invited.
Mino: Okay, I know that Amber, but just deal with the fact that I am here okay. So what are we doing now?
Mahi: Well, you can come on the tour with us and then we are going to have lunch, curry night.
Mino: Great, let’s go.
Mahi: Wait for a teacher. (Teacher2 comes.)
Teacher2: I will be taking you one your tour, so shall we begin?
Teacher2: Let’s go.
