School romance came a long way and love overshadowed the hatred of the families. Disowned by everyone, Dilip and Mita started a new life in one room rented chawl in Mumbai with absolutely nothing in hand. A piece of green silken cloth is all they had which they could call “something fancy”. They used it as a mat to cover the worn out, broken wooden table whenever they had guests at home. 2-years later, when their bundle of joy arrived, they used same cloth as his cozy silken bed sheet.
Days were tough but the couple stood by each other. They lived together the dream to start their cloth company. While Dilip focused on his job in a factory, Mita took up every possible opportunity that came her way. Both worked day and night, and saved every single penny.
Today, while having dinner in their own Company’s luxurious lounge, Prince recognized the same green cloth. It was beautifying the center table made of sandalwood in the lobby. With a spark and pride in his eyes, he said, “Now I understood what did both of you always mean never forget your past and the roots”.
