pt. I. January 2005. Challenge me. Any man, any time -- Manohar wanted me to start modelling; he said I was bootiful -- A bar dancer's game is to rob, to fool a kustomer -- My mother is fat, and very, very simple -- I want a good break, yaar. No cut-piece, sidey role for me -- To be held, even in the arms of a thief, is worth something -- I too love you, Janu! -- I'm going to skin your flesh and throw it to the dogs! -- The luckiest girl in the world -- If I fall, who will accept my outstretched hand? -- I sell watermelons. Watermelons and watches -- pt. II. September 2005. Now that you're unemployed, how do you feel? -- Everyone drinks! Everyone beats! -- If anything happens, run like Sita should have run from Ravan! -- They showed me. They showed me all night -- Move on. Stay away. Leave me alone -- Once these randis come upstairs, their chamri is mine -- Tell me, do you see it?
