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. In desperation, he had visited one of Khush’s favourite hangouts and drunk himself silly with a shemale acquaintance of Khush. Getting through to the driver had only infuriated him further. The driver had driven Khush and Raima to Daman. The absence of contact with Raima, the aftereffects of excessive drinking and the driver’s report had been too much for Shom to handle any more.
S1E24: Shom with Khush
Shom and Raima arrive at Harry’s factory. Raima loves the place and asks Harry to show her around. Shom and Khush reminisce about the past. Khush reassures Shom that Saif was locked up in a heavily fortified prison with little possibility of breaking free. Shom recalls the time when he had passed out on hearing from the driver of the Land Yacht that Khush and Raima had been together. 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.

After the exhausting session, Raima refreshes herself with a shower in the Land Yacht. She invites Shom home and reassures him that his privacy will be guarded. Shom wants to know more about her, but admits that he cannot reveal much about himself. He believes that their relationship must go with the flow if it has to flourish. Any expectations will take the spontaneity out of it. Raima understands that their relationship must remain faceless for it to work. They return to Bombay and promise to meet up soon.
S1E16: Shom and Raima Set Off from Khandala

S1E10 – Godfather or Love Guru
Harry, Raima, Shom, Khush, Swapna and Natasha are together again. Raima and Shom feel that the other has changed in recent times. Harry steps in as a love guru and analyses the situation correctly. He feels that true love only matures with time. Only the outward behaviour changes according to the situation. That happens because the purity of the heart has to often yield to social norms. The love guru suggests that the best way forward is to balance the two. Only then can bliss be attained, he says.
