Part 13

Hi guys now the next part…

 

Anjali moved out of the hotel as fast as her paining legs could take her… she had seen him after 7 years…. Even in that room she could see those eyes….. but was it really him??? She wondered… was it really her Maan…. But then her mind clucked… her Maan never came back….. That day, the man she had seen in the hotel room with Samira was Maan Singh Kurrana…. And today the man she saw was him only… it was not her Maan… the Maan whom she loved whole heartedly… the man whose eyes oozed nothing but love for her…. But this man… he was someone else…. A devil in a human’s clothing… his eyes showed nothing but rage and hatred… how can he be her Maan….? She kept on thinking all this as she walked out of the hotel…. She dint know how long she had walked off… she dint know where she was going to…. All she did was walk… ignoring the pain that shot through her legs….. the pain that she felt in her heart numbed all physical pain…. She walked on aimlessly…. Not knowing where to go.. all she wanted to do was get lost from there… she couldn’t see him like that…. she couldn’t see him in that monster’s avatar…. Will he ever come back..??? was the question she needed answer for…. Would he come to her as her Maan??? And above all what troubled her was… was she the same Geet that lived 7 years ago…. This thought made her stop walking…. She was neither Geet nor Anjali… she was lost somewhere between these two women…. Anjali was a sister… a daughter and a very happy girl…she was responsible but still bubbly……. Where as Geet was… that stupid 18 year old who was so excited abt a date with the college dude that she dint sleep for the whole week….

That naïve girl who thought someone as popular and sexy would want a geek like her….

That innocent girl who believed that some guy who could get a girl like Samira would love her….

 Even today she dreamed of living with him…. Her face broke into a sad smile… that would never happen… he dint love her…. And after knowing she was handicapped he would not want her body also…. She thought as her mind moved to that fateful day in the hotel….

 

Geet had come to know that Maan was back in Mumbai…. Giving Sakshi to Shyam… she quickly got hold of a cab and reached the hotel… she couldn’t thank Shyam for finding out abt Maan… she waited for the elevator and quickly got into it… she knew the room no… it was 408… getting out of the elevator… she dashed towards the room……. The room was opened… she just pushed it and entered…. What she saw…… broke her whole existence…. Maan was all over Samira who was lying on the bed naked and he was on top of her…. Kissing her….

Maan… she called out… in a broken shivering voice…. Maan turned around and looked at her… he was first shocked to see her here… but then smirked…

Oh.. hi Geet…. Come join us… he said with a smirk….

Maan… she whispered as her eyes moved from his face to Samira’s…

What??? Don’t act as thought you are new to this dear… he mocked her….

bb.. But… ww…whhw….why??? she managed to utter…

Why means??? What did you think… I’ll fall for some geek like you??? He mocked her again…

What….. i..i…. what??? She asked completely confused

I mean that it was just for a stupid bet Geet…. Now that the bet is over… I left you.. I did it 1 and half year before thinking you’ll get the fact but… you are really stupid for a geek…. He said laughing… Samira too joined….

So… either you join me or leave sweet heart…. He said winking his eyes…..

That means….. wh….wh..i.. me.an… w…we ar…e ma….a.rrie….d she stammered….

What?? Married….. God Geet…. I cannot believe you are so naïve…. He laughed…. Filling your partition and giving you a chain doesn’t constitute a marriage… all this was just to get you in bed sweety….

tt..th…a.t.. m…m.ea…ns… yo..u… li… she tried…

Yes I lied…. What is wrong in that… he said shrugging his shoulders as Samira pulled him closer… Geet closed her eyes in disgust….. She felt her whole world shattering…. How…. Why … was the questions she kept asking herself…. She walked out of the room and left the hotel and kept on walking without realizing where she was going…. Last she knew… she felt unbearable pain in her legs then her head and the whole world went dark……

After 3 months, Geet woke up.. only to find herself in a hospital…

Anjali… she heard Shyam calling her… she saw that he was holding Sakshi also.. Along with him, her mom (mami) also stood there, tear eyed…..

After that day, Geet had died…. The Geet who would dance in the smallest of occasions, who talked like the world would end soon, who never thought before doing anything…. Was dead… she was replaced by this woman…. She was Geetanjali.. a mother, a daughter a sister.. that is all…. She dint want to be anything else.. as she knew she wasn’t capable of being anything else….

Anjali shook her head. .,trying to get the thought of that man out of her mind… but how do you get out such thought that had engraved itself inside her existence… she dint know.. She looked up towards the sky.. calling and praying her Devi maiyya to show her a way, to tell her how to get rid of these thoughts… she tried walking…. But her legs gave way and she fell on the ground… she was in her conscious… but still her body dint obey her mind to get up… she remained on the road…. Just like a log…. Without moment…. Soon.. her eyes went heavy and she dint feel a thing….

 

Hello??? Is this Mr ASR??? Asked the voice …. Arnav was drunk.. but not so much…

Yah….. who is this?? He spoke in a really heavy voice….

Sir.. your sister Mrs Anjali Jha has been bought to the hospital… it seems she had fainted on the road…. The voice told him..

WHAT???? Which hospital… he yelled… getting up….

City hospital sir… said the voice…. the phone went dead as Arnav pressed the end button.. He ripped off his shirt and dashed to the washroom…. He called his cook and ordered a lime juice and went to take bath.. he was out in 5 min and a glass of juice was ready… he gulped down the liquid and wore his clothes and dashed out of the penthouse…. He drove madly towards the hospital… he yelled at the receptionist who trembled at the man standing opposite to her… she gave him the room no….. Arnav reached the room…. He opened the door… he just stood there seeing his di.. his reason for survival.. .his promise to his dying mother, asleep on the bed… he walked closer and held her limp hands…

Mr Raizada??? Said a voice…. he turned to see a doctor…

Yes…..what happened to her…. Where was she???? How did she get in here?? He shot his questions at her…

Good evening I’m Riddhima Malik…. And for your questions…. Her BP got low….. but apart from all this… I think she should be alright……

What do you mean.. think… look… he said in a threatening voice…

No… you look….. I’m her doctor… and you are her brother.. you shd be more careful towards her.. first you let your sister out without food… next you don’t check she has had her medicines or not… and then you let her go all alone… especially when you know she is diabetic….then after all this, you have the audacity to question me??? She shot back… anger was evident…her eyes blazing.. no one.. Absolutely no one talked to Riddhima Mallik like that… she thought as she glared at that man…..

Arnav’s eyes widened… how dare she… he thought… but later he calmed down… this doctor was correct… he was so busy lost in the thoughts of that girl that he had ignored his di completely.. he turned his eyes towards the woman, who was lying lifeless…. He caressed her forehead…

Will she be ok??? He asked his voice dropping to a mere whisper…

Riddhima was taken aback at this.. She dint expect him to transform like this… getting back… she managed a Hmmm.. very soon.. she is not in danger.. but this shd not continue like this…. She said… as Arnav nodded his head, still looking at the still form….

And no more stress… I believe that she was highly stressed…. when she was bought here, her pulse was really low…pls sir.. this shd not happen next time… she said….

Thank you doc… I will make sure this will not happen again..

Riddhima wrote something on the pad near Anjali’s bed and left the room… Arnav sat near his sister for some time… he then thought of going out… as he stepped out of the room, he realized this was the same hospital, that girl was admitted into…. He then walked, trying to remember where her room was.. he moved to the next floor and then stopped opposite to one room.. He gently pushed the door… and what he saw made him burn in anger….. That girl was cuddling close to Pritvi…. His security head… what the hell he thought…. This girl was really talented.. she had managed to get Pritvi into the web… so soon….. As far as he knew Pritvi.. he was really decent and did his job sincerely…. Giving one more look at the two.. he left the room…not understanding why his heart was stopping him from going…. He sat down on one chair…. He felt guilty… he had promised his dying mother that he would take care of Anjali… he would put his happiness behind her need…but here, he was worrying for a girl who he dint even know… and she was getting cozy with the next available guy… he drew his hand through his hair…irritated… how can he do something like this… he let go of his di for this s**t??? he couldn’t believe what he was doing… sitting there…. Lost in his thought, Arnav just drifted off to a very uncomfortable sleep…….

 

Hello sir????

Yes.. tell me Pratap…. Maan said as he came out of the wash room….. He gave an uninterested look towards the sleeping form of a girl on the bed……

Sir…I took her to the hospital… her brother has been informed…. He is here sir…

Hmm…. So..hummm…. Maan tried to ask him what the doctor said… but dint know how to do so…..

It seems her BP was low…. And she is diabetic too… Pratap said… with a small smile… he thanked God that he was not face to face with Maan….

Hmmm…. You can leave for the day….

Sir…. Pratap asked before Maan hanged up….

What is it???

Wo.. sir… my brother stays here in Delhi… will it be ok if I spend some time tomorrow with him???

Hmm.. ok.. but be on call.. I’ll call you if I need something…. Maan said and cut the call…… he walked to the balcony… he dint know why he did it… he had called Pratap his main information guy….. To follow Geet as soon as she left the room… he dint know why he had felt to do so… did he still care for her??? He wondered as he sipped on the glass of whiskey, he had taken out of the attached mini bar…. Why had she fainted like that…. he thought… diabetic??? he couldn’t believe that a girl like Geet could get it… but then why the hell did he bother.. She is a nobody.. he gulped down the glass and took the whole bottle… he emptied it till the last drop and his eyes fell on the sleeping, naked body of the girl…. He needed to get relieved again…. He removed his clothes and entered the bed… pulling her closer.. not bothered if she was sleeping or not….

 

A small girl wearing a red ghagra was dancing and running around a beautiful rose garden… she was twirling around….

Titli… dekho… a boy said as he held something in his hand…

Kya hai.. she asked as she tried seeing it…

The boy opened his hands and gave her a beautiful white rose….

Awwww.. bohot accha hai.. she said jumping cheerfully….

Aur ese hi dekho na… said another voice.. she turned to see a lady holding a baby… and smiling at her…

Munna… mera munna… the girl cried out and ran towards the baby….

Amma… me pakadon… isse… she asked as she tip toed to get a proper look at the child….

Han han… saying the lady placed the child in the girls hand…

Is phool ko mujhe dedo… the lady said smiling as she took the flower…. Suddenly the climate changed and the air was filled with screams…. The girl looked horrified at her arms… as the baby was missing… then the rose in the lady’s hands were suddenly filled with blood…

Titli… the lady cried.. bhag ja… she cried out loud… the girl stood mortified…

Bhag titli…. Bhag….. cried the woman as a bullet shot through her chest…. And the pearl necklace that she wore broken and scattered around …

Bhag ja… she cried as she hit the ground, crusing the rose under her….

Amma… the girl cried… Munna… she cried searching….

Kushi was shook badly… she opened her eyes too look into a really concerned eyes of  her new brother.. Pritvi… choti.. are you alright??? He asked as he caressed her head…

Kushi was everything but alright… she was shivering again… the dream had shaken her like before… but this time, the boy in it was new… Pritvi hugged her…. Sapna tha…. Sab teek ho jaye ga… he said as he hugged her and patted her softly….

If you are done with you cuchi coos… can you come out Pritvi… said a really cold and rude voice… Pritvi turned around and saw the great ASR standing there glaring at them… he gulped and let go of Kushi…. Me abhi a jaunga… saying he left a visibly shaking Kushi….. this morning was really scary… she just wished her jiji was there with her like always….

 

Garima and Madhumathi stood outside their house, as few people threw out their things on the street….

Hai Nandh kishore… Garima kuch karo….humara ghar….yelled buaji as she tried to stop those people…. But Garima stood there numbed by all this…. Her eyes were  fixed on the document that she held… according to it… the house was sold off and Payal had signed it…. So that means they were homeless… and Payal dint even tell them anything….

Ab hum kya karenge Garima??? Cried Madhu…. Holding her head…

Kya jiji?? Garima asked emotionless…

Arrey… humne kabhi payal ko esa nahi socha tha…. Ghar bejh dia… aur hume raste par chod gayi… pese lekhar udgayi wo…. She cursed her…

Garima narrowed her eyes… she knew Payal was never the kind to go behind money…. She knew her daughters… they would bend only for love.. nothing else… suddenly she stiffend…. Daughters… she smiled… a very sad smile… she now understood everything….she slowly made her way towards the house….. there, on the ground… was their family pic.. she took it and then took out a bag, pushed in some clothes into it and left the house….

Arrey oh… Garima… kaha javath ho??? Yelled Madhumathi….

Upne gunah ki saza katne.. she said as she turned and started walking….

Kya gunah… kya saza….??? Sab bakwas…..hum tho chale.. upne pati ke ghar… Delhi…. Saying she took her bag and went to get a rickshaw that would take her to the railway station……
