After dinner, the girls and the mom was chitchatting sitting on the main hall. Lechu's eyes were glued onto the TV screen, when Suchi and Radhika was discussing about Sarada's daughter's marriage. The phone rang behind them. Suchi looked at Radhika in doubt, and looked at the clock again..
She went and picked the phone..
"Mom, muaaaaaaaaa'' dev's happy voice reached her ears..
Suchi's lashes flickered once hearing his voice: How are you beta?
Dev: fine.. mom.. I need your blessings.. and pray for me mom, today I am going to accept the offering.. and taking the next step in my life mom.. I am missing you a lot mom..
Suchi controlling her wet eyes: I am so proud of you my son. I miss you too, but yes, you need to move forward, and as dad said this is a very good opportunity, my blessings are always with you my son, you don't need to ask for it..
Dev: I know mom, you know what, my apartment is filled witht he agarbathi smell now.. so i can feel you around me...but still'... I wished you to be near be at this time.. dad too.. but..
Suchi: yes Dev.. I don't have to take any tension like many other moms.. thinking about your job and all. So I am lucky in that way too.. Now prove yourself in your role and come back with a smiley face. Our happiness always depend on a smile on our kids face.. so our blessings are with you dear all the time..
Suchi: no, but Lechu and Radhika is here.. will call them Ok..
Lechu came running and picked the phone and said: good luck Bro.. so now I can expect a big gift from you.. right?
Dev: um' thanks Lechu, a Big gift, as you wish..
Lechu: that's my Bro.. Will give to Di , ok.. bye,..
Dev with a smile: bye..
Radhika with a smile watching Lechu getting back onto sofa: hello
Dev: um' keeping the happiness inside with a naughty smile..
Radhika: what is this um um' tell me something..
Dev burst out into laugh: Ha, Radhika.. going to bed soon?
Radhika: ha.. so you all set.
Dev: ha.. for us..
Radhika smiled shyly..
Dev: ok then, will call dad on his cell . Need to get ready quick.. tried to catch mom before she get into bed..
Radhika with a smile: ji..
Dev: and don't forget to send me the mails Ok.. I will check back once I come back..
Radhika: um.. goodluck..
Dev: thanks dear' and.
Radhika: and .. what?
Dev: kuch nahi'
Radhika: ok then bye.. she looked at Suchi and Lechu quick and bringing the receiver closer to her lips she said: muhaaaaaaaa.. and then with a giggle kept the receiver back on rack and ran and sat near Lechu with a bubbling heart.. unable to control that smile, she looked at the TV monitor and tried to concentrate on it..but still that lips stretched out..
He took his file, made sure everything is in and then taking his car key , he walked out from his apartment.. smiling at his bright future and the fortune..
Days, weeks , months passed by...'
Heena and Radhika were sitting at the college canteen...'
Heena: so mom, dad ,and sis flying off and not you?
Heena: no Radhika.. I really thought you are missing him a lot, but it seems like you are ok with everything..
Radhika: what do you mean?
Heena: no Radhika.. I know Dev's job news came so quick and you agreed with that along with others and now all are going , except you..
Radhika with a smile: ha Heena.. even I also thought how I gave up so quick at that time.. Before that I was telling sweety that I won't talk to him.. but when I heard his sound, his concern for me, and then his worry about our future.. I gave up unknowingly. Maybe because I was listening to papa and suchi mom's talk. I thought I tell him that they are worried, I am worried.. but, even though they all worried, they all supported him.. and he also sounded so worried about the future.. I thought maybe he is right, he loves me so much, and I know that.. also he told me he doesn't want to join papa's business soon. So there is no other option.. and he sounded so happy with that offer, and at that moment I only looked for that..
Heena: what about you Radhika.. did you stop counting days..
Radhika: I am still counting days, not days, may be hours, to talk to him, to see and read his mails. you know, he is truly busy, but he completed his studies and now totally free , now it is his job and that headache..
Rahdika: how can I? I am glad at least papa ,mom and Lechu are going.. and study leave is going to start for us too, so I will be in Chandenpur.. Ha Heena, if I see him one more time, it will be so painful to separate, so I prefer this wait than seeing him for just two days or a week.. also how can I go yaar.. you think this U.S people are so generous to give everyone visa that easily. I was not knowing about it, but then papa was telling about it..
Radhika: so I am glad, at least they all got it.. and you know when I go , I will go forever with him..
Heena: um um'um.
Heena: nothing'tell me what you are going to send , for him..
Rahdika: nothing.. what will I send?
Radhika: will think about it.. but nothing in my mind.. oh ya' may be pickle as usual from daadi and birju bhayya..
Heena: I don't understand this arjun? See he lost another tournament and still no improvement?
Radhika: I think he will, when the students will ask him directly he may come back to his old form.
Heena: he better.. so Radhika, for study leave , I am going to come with you...' chandenpur for two weeks.. your dad won't throw me out , right..
Radhika with a smile: that will be awesome.. let's have fun.. now you became a part of my family....
Heena: um.. I love Chandenpur so much now..
Radhika: see, that's the magic of nature..
Their talk went on...'
