Post those riots, Aryan fled to Canada. Getting a Cash job was easy in Canada, be it at a retail store or working at a restaurant. He did all that till he managed a drivers license. The guys at the local Gurudwara were helpful. It was a close knit community. For Aryan this was family now. They took good care of him. He did miss his sisters and his mother, but not his father. Riots had completely wiped out his family, but not his memory. He had trouble sleeping. Images of his burning house haunted him every night. He could still hear the shrieks of his mother and his sisters, What had they done to his family? Why was his family targeted? His father had asked him to chop his hair before he could leave for Canada. Things did not make sense back then. But now he understood- HATRED. It resonated with him very well.

Aryan got himself a job at Unicity Taxi . Most of the cabbies were Indians. Most visitors he dropped from the airport were Indians too. They kept coming, it was as if Canada was becoming a second home for Indians. Whats with so many Indian restaurants? He liked it in Canada till one day a visitor was going to change his fortune. This Italian who had just exited airport in his Armani suit headed straight for his Limo. Aryan was right behind the Limo waiting for the next customer, just then in his side mirror he saw someone from the crowd rush towards the Italian with a GLock G17. Aryan opened his door and the man ran right into it to fall. Aryan had immobilised this guy before he could recover to get hold of his gun again. The Italian impressed by Aryan who had saved his life, took him to Italy.

Aryan never in his wildest dreams had imagined that he would land up in Italy. He had seen this country only in the Bollywood movies. In Italy Aryan indulged and his boss ensured he does, for Aryan was soon going to be one of his trusted men to carry out operations back in India. Women, drugs, crime soon followed for Aryan. Leaving behind the man he was in India, Aryan was reborn. Now the most feared men of Italy. Kidnappings, protection money collection all came naturally to Aryan. He was now the Dons right hand man.

Once while on his way to meet his boss at DonMecannica Aryan bumped into Cyrus at the coffee shop.

“Are you from India?” asked Aryan

“Yes, man how did you figure that out?” wondered Cyrus.

Aryan happy that his guess was correct said “Well that Parsi complexion was a clear hint buddy. Do you work here?”

“Nah, I dont work here, I just have fun” smirked Cyrus “Well my Boss is so awesome he just lets me have fun, and by having fun I mean designing defence vehicles, aircrafts and what not, that is fun to me”

“Whoaa that sounds cool buddy, see you around” Aryan was getting late, he had to meet his boss for a special assignment. Cyrus too was on his way to attend a meeting with his Boss, an assignment for India.

Shekhar was back home with Roohie waiting for Tara to be back home. They had just finished dinner and Roohie was yawning hard to be awake.

“Why is mommy still in office? I am feeling very sleepy”

“Let’s get you to bed darling. I will wait for your mom. She is busy with work today”

Shekhar kisses her forehead as he puts her on the bed and covers her with blanket “Sleepwell baby”

Shekhar’s Phone rings in the drawing room. That would be Tara he thinks.

Jennifer calling. Picks up to hear her trembling voice “The PM is going to be attacked soon”

“Did you know about this sir?”

“What?” gives a shocking reaction.

“I need details right now. Where are you? Where did you get this intel from?” yells at her on phone.

Jennifer explains: “From you sir. Roohie was playing with a puzzle on a scribbled note with your handwriting on it” I decoded it and hacked the email address”

“How did Roohie….” Before he could finish its Tara on the waiting line.

“It’s Tara on the line and she is not home yet. I will have to call you back”

Disconnects and picks Tara’s call. “Hey Honey! I have been waiting for you. What time are you leaving?”

Tara speaks softly “Listen to me very carefully Shekhar. One of my source was probably killed while he was trying to call me just now. Before he hung up he mentioned of an assassination attempt on PM very soon. I don’t know if this is a real threat but we need to be strong as a family and protect each other. And do not speak to anyone about this. Do you understand?”

“OMG! Shekhar  acts surprised. “Are you okay, get home as soon as possible. Everything is going to be fine. I will not let anything happen to us. You get back here now”

Shekhar disconnects and calls Jennifer back

“I need those emails right now. And I need you to make the Delhi trip tomorrow and get done with whatever goddam business you have” This is a national crisis. Be back in a day” understood

Jennifer is hurt by the way Shekhar ordered but she knows it’s a serious situation and replies “Roger that Sir”


Cyrus is waiting on the airport with flowers and chocolates. Jennifer walks out of the airport in the same floral skirt looking exactly like Anne and smiles back.

“I am so happy to see you Anne” Kissing her on the cheek and giving flowers.

Jennifer hugs him back and they head to a nearby restaurant.

After listening to all Cyrus had to say about Anne and how they met in Kerala and had fun dating, Jennifer realizes he had no idea where Anne was and it was a waste of time to see him.

Jennifer pretends getting a call and walks out of the restaurant acting to search for network.

Quickly catches a cab and heads back to the airport to get on the next flight to Mumbai.

Makes a call to Shekhar – “Sir I am at Delhi airport and taking the next flight to Mumbai. Once I am back we will find who is behind this and kill them”

Shekhar feeling  sorry for Jennifer as he reads it in her voice that she did not get what she was looking for, replies : “Roger that”

The moment Roohie left, Jennifer was too curious to wait and discuss it with Shekhar She decided to hack the email address and learned these were sent by someone named Aryan to an Italian email address.

“Holy creeps. Has Shekhar already figured this out? Jennifer continues to dig into the emails.


Meanwhile Tara gets a call from an unknown landline number. She picks up thinking it might be one of her sources and it is.

“Not time to explain, attack on PM soon” Gunshot on the phone and the source is dead.

The shooter picks up the line on which Tara is shouting “Hello, Hello, Are you okay”

Shooter threatens Tara “Whoever you are start counting your last days. We will find you soon and kill you”


Tara cries in anger and bangs her leg on the table. The defense staff hears the THUD and they run towards her. “Is everything alright mam?”

“Am fine! Rushes to the washroom to calm down and think what to do next.


“I cannot go to the police as they won’t believe me”. What if they figure out it was me on the phone? I have to keep Roohie safe and out of this.

“This cannot be happening to me. These are terrorist’s not local criminals. I need full protection for myself and my family”

“But I can’t tell anyone about this. There will be panic everywhere and I will be the center of attraction. I will be interrogated”

What if it was a fake threat? I can’t trust just a phone call to disclose the news of an assassination attempt on PM. What if the source is still alive and fled from the situation?

I should wait probably he will call me again.

Perspiring out of anxiety and fear she picks her phone and dials a number.

Meanwhile Jennifer is busy decoding the series of emails. She finds three images which look like mirror images of alphabets.

And the three alphabets are ‘P’ ‘M’ and ‘X’.

Another email says (12 + 3).

“No no no no. this is not good”


Overlaps third alphabet with the first two together (PM crossed with X)

“There is an assassination plot of the PM” she doesn’t know what to do next.


Picks up her phone and dials a number.
