"Radhika' Radhika', wake up'. Its too late beta'.... Radhika'' the sound of dadima slowly reached her ears' ... she turned to her back with closed eyes..
"Radhika', wake up..".. daadi sat near and shook her shoulder
Radhika slowly opened her eyes and looked at Daadi and gave a small smile' "morning daadi..'
Daadi with a smile: what happened to you.. I never seen you sleeping this late.. you know what time it is..?
Radhika with a smile: what?
Radhika sat on her back like a spring action..: 8.30!!!!
Daadi: um.. 8.30.. fresh up quick.. Mohan is waiting for you.. let's have breakfast..
Radhika: two minutes daadi, I will be right there..
Mohan: are you OK.?
Radhika: ha Babuji'...
Mohan: um.. you are leaving after lunch , right?
Then only it flashed her mind: ha babuji..
Mohan with a smile: um'... study well.. I know I don't need to tell you this, but still after knowing that Dev prefer to work there'... you shuld also have to follow him only na.. so, that time the result should not come on its way... ..
Radhika: ji babuji..
Rohini was noticing Radhika's silent acceptance.. without saying anything she kept on serving on everyone's plate..
Radhika's mind started flying off. Did he came last night. I felt some odd feeling that I went to bed with Dadi, thought will go and check later, but don't know when I slipped into that deep sleep'... did he wait for me.. I don't think there is any chance.. he didn't come online for last two days and didn't bother to send me a mail'... even if he come , let him know how sad I feel , waiting for him and not coming online' ... but somewhere her heart was aching to know whether he came online or not? What he might have thoght.? whatever, I am not going to talk to him.. I told sweety too.. let see what will happen? She took that hard decision inside and kept on munching on the food piece with a relief...'
Later she went to her room.. she was packing her bag.. but somewhere deep down in her heart, she was feeling a pinching.. an unknown line of pain.. she kept the folded dress inside the bag..
'ok, let me check the mail, how do he know whether I checked it or not?'.. she decided and tried to turn the system on.. she waited.. she thought today the system is unusually taking long time..
Finally she was able to get into her mail.. Oh yes.. there it is', but not a sorry..'she tried to read it..
ye.. r u sleeping already..
ok, I am going to call you..
Oh no.. it is 12MN there.. what babuji will think..
Come on Radhika....'.
I should tell you this....'
Please'.... where are you?
You don't know how happy I am.. and I want to share it with you'.... Radhika.. come'. Am waiting..
Radhika turned to look at the door side hearing Rahul's voice..
Rahul nearing the door: Di, it is Dev bhayya.. we all talked to him .and he is asking for you'... come down fast..
Radhika: ha coming..
Rahul: fast di..
Radhika signed off quick and went down with Rahul..
Daadi was on phone with Dev.. seeing Radhika..
Daadi: see she is here now.. one minute beta..
Radhika with a smile took the phone from Daadi..
Radhika looking at Daadi's face slowly : hello
"ye, where were you? You really scared me.. you didn't come online, and over that you didn't send me any mail either.., I really got scared Radhika, I thought you got sick or something.. I am still waiting here.. just was waiting for morning to come quick over there , so that I can talk to you.. now why this silence, talk to me something na.."
She felt all his frustration and longing' she was unable to say anything'
Dev: Radhika.. please..
Radhika: how are you?
Dev tightened his forehead: what?
Radhika: how are you? Stressing her words
Dev with a cool voice: not fine..
Radhika: oh really.. you take rest..ok
Dev: Radhika.. what is this? You are making me nervous..
Radhika looked around and said: I am doing fine. Don't worry about me.. I will send you mail.. it is your night time, right.. so go to bed.. I will come online once I get in Delhi.. Ok
Dev: no, tell me something now..
Dev: you don't know Radhika, how happy I was, and your silence drained away all that..
Radhika: I was very tired, so don't know when I slipped to deep sleep, and then woke up late too..
Dev: you are ok na.. his voice reflected all the concern.
Radhika trying to bring a smile to comfort him: I am fine.. I will come online from home.. Ok.. now you go to bed..
Dev: I will wait..
Dev: what time you are starting?
Radhika: after lunch..
Dev moved his fingers calculating time' : Ok then , I will be online and come quick , ok..
Radhika: sure.. bye..
Dev hesitantly: bye..
She kept the phone down and went to kitchen.. Rohini was cooking lunch, slicing the veggies.... Radhika went behind and wrapped her arms around her mom's shoulder..
Rohini: you ok?
Radhika: ha mom..
Rohini: what Dev said?
Radhika: nothing' he is happy..
Rohini without looking at her face: and you?
Radhika in a normal tone: I am ok too'.
Rohini keeping the knife down turned back and said: but you don't sounds like..
Radhika: no mom.. I am ok..
Rohini: no you don't , if you are, then you will be running outside at this time, near the river, or in the woods or near the meadow.. not wrapping your arms around me, and standing like this'
Radhika loosened her arms around her shoulder and tried to walk away.
Rohini: Radhika, pick that salt bottle for me'
Rohini: just add one spoon into that curry and stir it..
She followed her mom's instruction.. Rohini trying to read her daughter's mind..
Rohini: you know how happy babuji is.. he felt so proud when Dev talked to him yesterday, whole night he was talking about that only..
Radhika passively listened to it..
Rohini: maybe it is good for you too Radhika.. Babuji is saying you are a very lucky girl.. now when you pass out, you can also go with Dev and then try to find a job over there..
Radhika kept on stirring the curry..
Rohini: I am also happy beta.. I never thought one day my little princess will flew away from here.. but one thing Radhika, when you go with your prince this time, I will come to airport. All this time it is babuji and daadi who came to see off Dev..but when my daughter leave, I will come.. and I will see the airport too.. maybe I will be able to see the plane very close na', ... all this time, I enjoyed watching it, flying over that clouds..
Radhika looked at her mom.. "you only told me to do it!!"
Rohini: oh really.. how many times did you listen to me.. Radhika.. if I say to pick the spoon, you run away making excuses.. now why you need to act like a good baby.. go get ready..
Radhika: mom, this is not fair..
Rohini: it is.. then bringing a forceful smile: go beta. .. get ready, I will finish this quick and come and help you.. ok.
Radhika: um' and she went away'
Rohini suddenly wiped off her tears'..and went on stirring the curry..
They reached late 10PM back in Delhi house..
Lechu: mom, dad.. goodnight...'
Suchi with a smile..: sleeping half way through the travel, then again tired.. Good night..
Radhika said goodnight too and went to her room.. she changed quick and went and locked her room.. she came near the system and turned it on'... she just browsed on the internet as his sign showed idle.... but then suddenly his ' Hi' popped up..
She put the ear phone and answered his call..
Dev: ye'.. I was waiting'... came late?
Radhika: we started little late.. took time for the bye over there..
Dev felt the seriousness in her tone..
Dev: what happened? Why you sound so serious..
Radhika: no, nothing.. you tell me...'
Dev: Radhika.. you know how happy I am.. can't wait for tomorrow.
Dev: I am going to accept it.. the job offer.. you know that right?
Radhika with a complaining tone: why you didn't tell me about it?
Dev: nothing was planned Radhika.. and even it first shocked me too .. but then when I got it, I asked dad for his opinion, and he sounded supporting me.. and then Babuji gave me full support' and I am so happy', you too , right?
Radhika didn't say anything..
Dev: Radhika.. tell me.. lowering his voice.. aren't you happy?
Radhika was not knowing what to tell him..: all are happy..
Dev: I am not asking that.. with a serious tone: tell me about you..
Radhika: what do I say?
Dev: anything' please..
Radhika with a tinge of sadness in her tone: I thought .. I thought I will see you in three months.. and..
Dev: Radhika.. me too.. I was counting days too.. but then..
Radhika: then why you choose to accept the job.. that means, you are not missing any of us right? You are not missing me'. Her whole pain reflected in her tone..
Dev: Radhika.. how can you think that way.. I never thought you will take it this way'.. I am missing you all .. and especially you.. very badly.. so only I am going to accept this offer..
Dev: Ha Radhika.. I don't think I can live without you anymore.. when I see you next time, I want you to be with me..
Radhika: but then if you are accepting this job, means, you won't be able to come soon ..right?
Dev: right, but when I come next time, I can stand in front of your babuji, with a raised head, and ask your hand proudly.. because I have a job , .. think If I come after my studies, I have to look for a job.. I may get one soon or later, but no guarantee when? It may take its time..and then as a fresher I may need to prove myself before I can ask your hand.. I know Dad and all ready to fix our marriage, but maybe it is ok in their eyes.. but for me I am still a jobless man, after marriage you are going to be with me, I need to take care of you, for that I need to stand on my feet, how can we depend on our parents.. that is not good.. I want to be independent when we start our life.. did you get what I mean..
Radhika with a sigh of relief: Ha, but ..
Dev: Oh my God!.. what are you saying.. don't say this in front of dad OK..
Radhika tightening her forehead: why?
Radhika smiled and he heard her giggle.. he felt the relief..:
Dev: what?why you are giggling now?
Radhika with a msile: kuch nahi..
Dev: kuch tho hei.. bethavona..
Radhika: no, I was just imagining the angry face of dad and frustrated face of you standing in front of him..
Dev: see I told you.. for you it is funny, but for me, I may prefer to vanish from the site..
Dev: aur kya?.. you tell me..
Radhika: so when are you joining..?
Dev: will come to know more details tomorrow..
Radhika: send me email..ok
Dev: um.. ye, sorry dear..
Radhika: for what?
Dev: that I didn't send you mail.. and I am sure you waited for me online too.., right?
Radhika then only remembered that she decided not to talk to him earlier : hum.. but its ok.. now I am feeling better..
Dev: but don't do this to me..
Dev: I got used to see your mails.. and when I don't see any.. it hurts Radhika..
Radhika: then think of me. I am sending all that, and you just reply for one .. and then won't even come online..
Radhika: um..um.. don't try to soap me now..
Dev: ye, no.. I am not.. telling you the truth.. so with all this, when I see your mail, I feel so relaxed.. I feel cool..
Dev: I know.. see, soon I will be holding my pay cheque.. not a student anymore.. you don't know how happy I am feeling..
Radhika: I can hear that.. but..
Dev: now what?
Radhika: now when will you come back?
Dev: whenever you say...'
Radhika: then come now itself..
Dev: ye Radhika.. I wish..but..
Dev realized her pain.. he also can't take it, so only he is trying to settle .. so that he can bring her with him forever', " ha Radhika.. , go to bed,' you have college tomorrow, right.. so goodnight..'
Dev: ye..my hak..
Radhika: muhum'' she just smiled and turned it off..
Dev sat there looking into that monitor, where her voice faded off' ... he walked near to the wall.. he saw her picture, smiling wide.. and looking into that picture he said' ' you don't know how badly I am missing you Radhika.." I know it is painful for you and for me too..but we need to , for sometime, but then it will be just us.. and I will hold you in my arms forever'... he smiled with that thought....' and then went near the patio and looked outside at the bright sun '... he looked at the parking lot.. mostly empty,' "it's the weekend in U.S'. he smiled to self...
