(Karan is celebrating his 26th birthday at a five star hotel in Delhi. There are around 200 guests. All lights fall on Karan and his friends-Vicky, Riya, Sara and Harshit. Everyone is drinking, except Karan.)

Karan (to Harshit): So how’s life? What are you doing these days?

Harshit (sadly) : Well not everyone is as lucky as you are! I just do not have the kind of business acumen that you have. I have suffered many losses lately. Planning to take up a job mate. (Empties his glass. Orders another drink.) Hey Karan why don’t you drink?

Karan(to Harshit): No thanks. Sorry to hear about your business. I’m sure you’ll get a good job. Don’t lose hope.Everything will fall into place.
(to Vicky) How bout you? What are you up to these days?

Vicky (casually): Oh! I’m not like you please! I have better things to do than waste my time working! As long as my old man is alive, I won’t bother to torment myself. Hey Karan, why do you take life so seriously? Why can’t you be like us? Why don’t you drink and smoke? Why do you have to be such a sissy? One must try everything in life.

Karan (coolly): I am me. I like myself. And Hey! You shouldn’t be talking about your Dad like that. He has given you everything you have in your life. You haven’t earned a penny till date. You are 26, don’t you think it’s time for you to be serious.

Vicky (excitedly): Chill man! You weren’t really designed for enjoyment. And you don’t like it when others enjoy.

Karan(to Vicky): There is no point talking to you. (to Riya) How are your studies going dear?

Riya (lazily): Yeah alright! I have my dad’s business to fall back on. I don’t waste my time and energy on studies. (Gulps her drink. Orders another) You’re sure, you don’t want to drink Karan? You are 26 dude! Be a man!

Karan (to Riya): I didn’t know boozing was a symbol of manhood! (to Sara) So when is your marriage? What does the guy do?

Sara (disinterested): Sometime next year. The devil owns three restaurants. My dad thinks that he can manage his company in Dubai. That’s why I am marrying him. Lights a cigar.

Karan (to Sara): It seems you don’t love him. Why are you marrying him?

Sara (irritated): He is rich you fool! And somehow I know he will always be rich. He can provide me with everything that my father has always given me. Life will be convenient. (Gulps her drink). Hey Karan why do you have to be so boring? Come take a sip.

Karan (backs off): No thank you. (His phone rings) Excuse me.

Karan(devastated): It was my manager. I have incurred a loss of 50 crores!

Sara (to Karan): Come sit down. Relax. (All the friends huddle around him)

Karan (to everyone): Rohit K has been my business rival for many years. He was my classmate at SRCC. I have always managed to outshine him. This is the first time that he has defeated me. Can’t take it.
