Dev & Menoka’s wooing has smooth sailing as all Menoka desires is to be taken to expensive restaurants, buying jewelry and presents, and the occasional loans which are mostly repaid, proving that she was not the ‘gold digger’ as one of Dev’s uncouth friends had suggested. Menoka enjoys Dev’s company entertaining, as he is humorous and for his childlike actions, so much so that she does not ‘even notice’ the vast difference in age between them.
Menoka is charming, vivacious and an outgoing person and during a couple of her such outings Dev finds that she is also popular with some other men of wealth who all were past their second or third youths.
Romantic at heart, Dev did not look his age and his mind had not kept pace with his aging body as his efforts to re-enact exploits of his yesteryears end mostly in misadventures, much to his chagrin and embarrassments for Menoka, and cause for anxiety to Parvati and Raj, the latter, the husband of Menoka and the former, the wife of Dev.
