Act 1
Scene 2

Prad's monologue: A gamer is born not formed.  He starts playing when he is inside his mother's womb, kicking, shooting rasberry bubbles and trapping the bacterias, twisting the umblical cord, somesaults... A hardcore gamer, spend 9 hours playing games, 12 hours of making games and sleep and eat if required. I drink, eat and sleep Skyrim now. Did you say girls? they are nothing but distractions... distractions and distraction is something, I cannot afford to have now.
Singing: "Skyrim" here I come.

Vipra: Aunty is Prad home?
Prad's mom: Hi Vipra... yes he is, asusual at his den, playing games. We gave him a good name.  Why you guys call Pradeep as Prad is beyond me.
Vipra: Hee Hee... it's because he wants to be called that way. Let me go and say a Hi to him.
(Vipra enters Prad's room - den as he fondly calls his room)
Vipra: Prad
Prad: hmmmm
Vipra: (Louder) Prad?
Prad: hmmmm
Vipra:(Screams) Prad?
Prad: Yeah! temme...
Vipra: I came here all the way to see you and you can't even take your eyes of monitor for a second.
Prad: (smiling) I didn't invite you, if I could remember. You invited yourself.  Listen! give me 10 minute, will finish this level and then we can talk as much as you want.
Vipra: OK... 10 minutes then
Prad:  (After 8 minutes) Done. Tell me, howz life?
Vipra: So far so good... How was your day?
Prad: As usual, exciting...
Vipra: At times, I hate you for being so disgustingly cheerful and excited
Prad: It's because, I love what I do and you don't and you crib a lot, you know these days... especially past few weeks it has become a practice.
Vipra: I know that and am sorry. Won't do it again.
Prad: Don't say sorry dear.  Didn't mean to be harsh.  But, I would be happy if you are happy.  After all you are the only friend I have and with whom I can share about anything.
Vipra: So, any new girl friends?
Prad: No time for that.  But, met an interesting girl last week at a mall and we are messaging each other.
Vipra: Oh! ok. Fine. Time for me to leave.
Prad: (Disappointed) Oh! why? thought you will be staying for an hour atleast. You upset about something? Did I say something to upset you?
Vipra: (laughing) Nah! that tiny jealousy reared its ugly head... Got little jealous, when you mentioned about the girl. This girl does she have a name? How does she look? Is she connected to you in FB?
Prad: The one I met last week at the mall? Her name is Sheerine.
Vipra: A muslim?
Prad: Yeah! any problem?
Vipra: No absolutely not... You are connected to her in FB.  I remember her name.  The girl with dark lovely eyes and beautiful hair.
Prad: She looked ok. Didn't pay attention to her eyes or hair...
Vipra: I don't understand this. Are you really as flippant as you react or is that a donned reaction?
Prad: Uh! sorry.. I don't get you.
Vipra: No. You are too casual about this woman.  That's why.  Guess any guy would give his eye teeth, to have a girl friend like her.
Prad: I am not any guy. Am Prad.
Vipra: So?
Prad: My eye teeth is important to me.
Vipra: Ha ha... you are too good... Prad, will you still be the same to me, if you find your girl.
Prad: Now you are confusing me... By "same" you mean friends.  If so, why would that change?
Vipra: hmmm. k... got to go.. See you... and...
Prad: And???
Vipra: You have a lopsided grin...
Prad: ahem! uh???
Prad stood before the mirror smiling, grinning and laughed and finally googled the word lopsided...


Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard. Google
