S1E26: Raima’s Grief

Shom found himself in a catch-22 situation. He felt deeply drawn towards Raima, yet was angry with himself for getting into an emotional mess. Seeing Raima in a car with a much older man didn’t help matter either. He called her right away and met up with her. The man turned out to be an uncle seeking her help. Calling Khush to cover up for him while he was with Raima, Shom discovered that Raima had been with Khush in the past. Khush further cautioned him against revealing too much of himself to Raima. Angry with Raima and accusing her of being a professional escort, Shom made her sign an agreement to ensure that he was never exposed to blackmail on her part.

S1E25: Shom Meets Aneesha

On the way back from Harry’s factory, it is Shom’s turn to narrate his side of the story when Raima and Khush had been uncontactable ten years ago. Repeated failed attempts at contacting Raima had left him in a state of anxiety. He had even suspected it to be Khush’s ploy to get Raima out of his life.

On coming around, he had decided to temporarily cut contact with the world and introspect. The soul-searching had made him realise that his love for Raima had to be unconditional. He could not be possessive about her. Attachment and ego would only hurt him. His doubts had cleared the next morning when Raima and Khush had turned up at his place.
