Epilogue

It has been nearly 6 years since Maan had set foot in India… he had avoided coming to Vicky’s marriage also… the pain was humongous here… not that it left him in the states but here he felt miserable even to breath… today he was here to see his very sick dadi.. his strength… who had stopped talking to him after his confession… she had called him back as she needed to talk to him… he came out of the airport half expecting someone to pick him up… but was pleasantly shock to see Vicky and his wife Meera along with their 2 year old son Varun… standing and waving to him… he moved forward when he was engulfed in a hug by Vicky… Bhai… he said in a very emotional voice…. Welcome back…
Vicky I’m not here to stay… you know that…. He said in a stern voice…. Vicky smiled and led him and his family to the car leaving to Kurrana mansion… Maan remembered his child hood as he drove through the streets where he had once lived and thought of never leaving… he would have been here if not for his sin… he gently wiped a tear which trickled down his eyes as they stopped near the door of his house…
Bete… called his mother hugging him…. It had been almost an year since she had physically seen him…
Mama… I’m fine… he said… with a smile which never reached his eyes… Dadi he whispered….. his mom shook her head and led him to his Dadi’s room
Dadi… he called looking at a very sick lady lying on the bed…. she opened her eyes and called him closer…
Maan bete… she whispered… I missed my small maan… she said as she kissed him on his forehead….
Me too dadi… was all he could come up with… his voice was stuck with all the emotions which played when he heard his dadi speak in a fragile way….. how he had missed those times.. when they had nothing but had everything… but today…..
He spent two days there…. He had decided to go to Mumbai to visit Adhi… he came to know that he had 2 kids and wanted to see him… so he left in a weeks time…. Adhi welcomed Maan enthusiastically… but this was not shared by Pinky… she had dislike Maan when she came to know what had happened, from meera… maan spent 2 days there…. One morning Adhi bugged him to come with him to the temple… so Maan half heartedly accompanied him…
The temple was very beautiful… there was a small stream which flew there… it was away from the city and was set in nature’s lap… greenery every where…. He also noted the place was very well maintained… Adhi told him that an actor had build this in the lovely memory of his wife… it seems his wife love this temple so much… and after her death he had improved this and taken personal care towards the temple… he was also told there was a free lunch and dinner offered to the poor on daily basis… Adhi pointed towards a big building opposite the temple with read Madhura…. Suddenly some thing clicked…
Adhi what is the actors name…. he asked as fear gripped his insides…
It is Rishab Kundra yaar…. R.K he said not paying attention to the shocked face of Maan…
Adhi continued… it seems she died after the delivery due to internal bleeding yaar….. He said… and moved away as he heard Pinky call….. Maan was stupefied… his heart, broke and bleed hearing this…he just left from there excusing himself…
After 2 hours maan found himself standing in front of Madhur villa… he told the guard he wanted to me R.K…. the guard called in to inform R.K…. the gates opened and Maan entered the house…. Someone pulled his end of his shirt to gain his attention… he looked down to stare at his Geet’s eyes…. He looked closely to find a boy’s questioning look…. Maan cleared his voice and said…
I need to see Mr Kundra…
He is Mr. Kundra….said a cute chirpy voice of a girl… maan looked up to find a cute girl standing with one hand on her hip and looking at him with arrogance….
Actually I ment Rishab Kundra… maan said amused by the sight of these little people…
You shd have been clear abt whom you wanted to see…. There are two Mr Kundra said the boy and one Miss Kundra added the girl with a bit of annoyance…
Maan looked at the kids… the boy had Geet’s eyes… and the girl was a smaller version of Geet…. That is when his eyes feel on a smiling photo of Geet which adorned the largest wall of the hall…. It had a garland over it… maan’s eyes welled as he looked at the picture… she looked beautiful…
That is my mom…. She is beautiful no??? Asked the boy….. My dad took the photo… added the girl proudly as she came down the stairs to join her brother…
Hmmm so what are your names…..?? Asked Maan
Ok I’m Gaurav… Gaurav Kundra…. Said the boy proudly… and I’m Gia Kundra said the girl….
And I’m Maan… he said with a sad smile…. He knelt down and hugged the kids trying to feel Geet through them…. He got up wiped his tears and left…. He dint meet R.K… he couldn’t meet him… he dashed out of the house
R.K watch Maan move out with tears in his eyes….. Madhur see he is sorry… he whispered looking at her picture… he smiled… he had purposefully sent the kids as he knew why Maan was there… R.K always felt maan was a coward as he never came and apologized to his Madhur… but still he had felt sorry for him… so he had thought of doing this…. He also knew he couldn’t suppress the anger which would erupt on seeing him… as he was the reason Geet was no more… the abortion followed by the depression had a deep lasting effect on her body resulting to her death… he remembered the doc telling her this… he had begged Geet for an abortion… they could adopt he had offered.. but Geet was adamant… she had forced him to comply to her needs and RK had done so…. But she had passed away leaving him with their kids all alone….
Maan reached Adhi’s house… he told Adhi he had to leave… and left to the airport… he had taken the next available flight to Delhi…
He reached Delhi and went straight to his room…. The room he had spent all those years looking at the young Geet…. His angel Geet… he cleared the room and made it suitable for himself… he had decided to transferre all the companies to his brother’s name…. and he had banished himself to that one room…. It was night time…. The cool breeze hit his face…. He opened his eyes to check the clock… it was almost 1 am… his eyes moved towards his window and stuck at the sight which he saw…. Geet standing there… wearing a white patiyal kurta and smiling… her hair was opened and flew as the breeze touched them… maan stood up and kept staring at her…. And so he did for the next 20 years…he waited eagerly to see her every night in the window smiling at the moon… it was the only time he had felt alive… only time he had felt the 22 year maan hopelessly in love with his angel..
After his demise…. Vicky found a letter In which Maan had requested to be burnt along with the books he had kept under his bed for all these years… it was done so… ad Vicky took the books out… one book slipped and fell opening the pages…. He was shocked as every line was filled with maan’s handwriting which wrote…I’m sorry myshti…. In red ink… or so he thought…..

She dint get love when she wanted it…. and when she got it she was no more… she was truly the unlucky girl…..

Ok the end… how was it… hope dint bore you a lot… sorry for this sad ending….do comment and like it…..
