This time, Shubham chooses Ritu. He slides his chair toward Ritu.

Shubham: What are you doing?

Which you should do too, work. Ritu answers without looking at him and keeps typing on the computer.

Shubham: How did you spend your weekend?

Ritu: I went to watch WPL 2024 at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Sunday. And I know you are not interested in women’s cricket, so let me do my work.

Shubham: Who told you that I am not interested in women’s cricket? I am interested in cricket; it doesn’t matter whether men are playing or women. It’s just a sport. Gender does not matter.

Ritu finally turns to his face. Really?
