Karma Café: Scene VII

Updated: Sep 13

Ramya:

​What were you thinking while saying that to him? See now what has happened. Do you have any idea how much we owe?


Kabir:

What can I do? He was misbehaving and…


[Kabir and Ramya were packing things of the Café while a couple quarreling enters the stage without noticing the café is closed, the wife sits on one of the tables while the husband follows her.]


Husband:

Please try to understand dear… I’m sorry I didn’t mean it.


Wife:

Yeah! You talk about me and say you didn’t mean it. You talk about my parents and say you didn’t mean it. Then what do you mean? I certainly know in what sense you said that.


Husband:

Please try to understand my situation.


Wife:

That day you even beat my friend for no reason.


Husband:

That’s because he was being too personal and I didn’t like the way he was either behaving or being with you.


Kabir:

Ahh... I think we should do something for them.


Ramya:

You are right, bring a strawberry ice cream with a touch of mint and dip a few strawberries in it for the wife.


Kabir:

And some salted broccoli for the husband?


Ramya:

Kabir! Please... I know what to do for him.


Kabir:

What?


Ramya:

Just follow me yaar.


[Kabir brings the ice-cream as instructed and Ramya brings a tangy orange juice with mint. The couple have them without noticing and they get calmer while Kabir plays some romantic music on the stereo. The couple calm down and start looking at each other and when they start leaving Ramya interrupts.]


Ramya:

A small gift from our side and whenever you quarrel next time please do visit our...


[The couple accept the gift and start moving]


Kabir:

Ah… there’s one more thing left… the bill (smiling lamely)


[The couple exit paying the bill]


Kabir:

​Did you notice Ramya that people don’t come to this place? I mean as a location. They want to go to Karma Café. I think they will come to us no matter where we are.


[Blackout]
