Padma thought the radish joke might be too risqué for the ruler, whose sense of humor was not known for much alacrity.
But Kamini decided to go ahead – after all, she would be wearing her ravishing purple sari.
Padma was finally relieved of her worrying when Kamini’s ring tone – the first few notes of the theme song from Mohabbatein – sounded after midnight.
This had been their agreed signal if things were all right.
