Chapter  25
 
A furious Saachi, walked out of the park, without even a backward glance..Stopping, just to call Shreya and asking her to meet at Rajsri's hostel, she  walked all the way to simmer down her anger and frustration...
She met them both.. A concerned Rajshri and equally shocked Shreya at the hostel..."What happened".... they both uttered at the same time...
Gesturing to them and cooling herself with some ice cold water,Saachi related all that happened at the park...
" That cad even had the audacity to ask ur hand in marriage..What temerity and who gave him the rt to decide for u"... shouted her friend walking to and fro inside the room..."These men are  like leopard in a deer skin, so unassuming and normal and totally misleading and prowling for an innocent victim"...echoed a stunned Shreya...
"Believe me Shreya, life as a perpetual student is so much easier than actually earning a living and facing the prospect of marriage...How I wish mama and mammi leave me alone to choose my own lifemate and shape my destiny..Iam indebted to them, so much that I have to suffer all these pains and hurts"...Saachi cldnt help a few tears as her voice broke down...
 
To cheer her up, both decided to go out... As they were leaving the hostel they were joined by Uma and Amit... Allowing Saachi and Shreya  to walk ahead of her Rajshri briefed the other two abt the happening at the park..Both elicited a furious response, much to her satisfaction....
 
As soon as Saachi and Shreya reached home, they were surrounded by eager and anxious faces of the whole family.....Not wanting to create a scene and hurt their feelings, Saachi quitely went to her room with a forced smile and cheerfulness..As previously decided with Shreya, she cldnt help lying to them and said "Dehkiye, mein do/teen din mein faisla karungi; tab tak is baren mein aap sab mujhe kuch bhi nahi poochiye, plz"...Seeing her resolve and her face none cld approach and ask her for further details...
 
 
 
The next day at school, Saachi tried her best to forget yesterday's fiasco....Shravan who was watching her cldnt help wondering, what brought abt this change in her...She was like an hurt tigress liking her wounds and snapped whoever came near her...Poor fellow he was at the receving end most of the time...When he tried to talk to her abt some changes in the programming order, she curtly replied..."Mr. Jaiswal, this was decided by the Dean and the organising committee, so no more changes okay"... when he tried to smile and compliment her singing,he  received a cold stare and acknowledgement "Ji I know that; thank you" ....While on way to canteen, when their paths crossed she deliberately turned her way and avoided him...
"Today Saachi is definitely acting like a goat", he thought...."Whats eating her.. If someone had given a gun she cld have easily shot his head off, with or without any fruit on his headLOL... This is  a new facet  to her dynamic personality... Let me get out of the way least she stabs me back"Ouch...
 
By lunch time Saachi had run out of her steam and calmed down considerably..Never in her life  had  she let her personal problems affect her work and reflect in this kind of conduct... Sitting under a tree and discussing with her closest aide, she outlined her reasons for this aberration in her behaviour...Gopally, who was selecting the volunteers for the function nearby cldnt help overhearing this...Smiling benignly he walked away with a slight skip in his step...
The post lunch session of rehearsals went in full swing.. Seeing her wards doing an excellent job, brought the magnetic and charismatic smile on her face... Feeling remorse and slightly abashed she sought out Shravan and apologised for her behaviour... A speechless and awe struck Shravan was just starring at her hardly hearing what she was saying...What kind of blow hot , blow cold emotions she exhibits, he wondered... Woman-hard to understandConfused; always an EnigmaLOL....
"Mr.Jaishwal,hello are you here;  Wednesday is going to be a full dress rehearsal... Almost all our staff, Dean and the whole school will witness that.. so plz make sure all ur paraphernalias for the event is ready... We dont want any last minute problems okay"...
 
That evening as they left for home, Shravan was still in a confused state of understanding her;  Saachi, now back to her old self, was more focussed abt the show and nothing else.....Little did they know what was in store for them that black wednesday....

Dear all  for ur convenience I have consolidated Do Dil.. pl read and feel free to post any kind of comment. Ur suggestions , criticisms, advises are most welcome..
The following is the page vise consolidation
 
Chapters  1 to  8 is on page 4
Chapters 9  to 16 is on page 13
 
The remaining 17  to 25 is here on page 24
 
Chapter 17
 
Gopaldas Yadav or Gopally  Sir, as he was often called by the staff and students of the Doon was  the head of  the Math dept...A bachelor in mid 30s, with a slight paunch, hunched shoulders ,thick shell framed glasses, receding hairline,unkept hair due to ocassional combing with his fingers, he painted a typical picture of a geekGeek...A man with remarkable ability for numbers and figures was a hopeless social outcast... But it was due to the Dean's effort   and insistence he was inducted into the Doon yrs ago...With his help, he underwent psychiatric counselling and medical treatments..the efforts of which borne fruit;he was  now grudgingly accepted  somewhat by others and was given some standing in the society...
 
He was now watching Saachi undergoing rehearsals with her wards in the auditorium...He had quitely settled in the last seat after his lunch and watched the entire scene before him.. he had another hour to do so before his class...
Ever since Saachi  had joined the Doon, he had watched her groW*H and stature, commanding respect, gaining everyone's love and affection; in short she was a darling among her students and dear friend among the teachersStar...
He was enarmoured by her beauty and grace and had always cherished a secrect desire to move in her circles...whenever he came across her, he either stammered some pleasentaries or was tongue tied and just nodded his head....
 
Since he was chosen as volunteer to oversee this annual day function, he had a perfect excuse to see her unobserved.... One day he will gather courage to walk to her and speak his mind, he was thinking now...For he had a secret.... All the planning and efforts he was taking will not go waste...With a determined nod he got up, had one last look of her and left for his classes...
 
In the meanwhile, Shravan who had reached an hour before the last bell, was waiting and loitering abt in the parking lot...He realised he had missed his lunch when his stomach started growling...Sham surfaced,his voice feeble and low, "Arre  Shravan why r u killing my body and me by forgetting ur lunch?you never missed ur meals earlier...what has come over you? Ek ladki keliye, thum bhookh bhi rahe saktha hai kya?I want,I want, I want food now"... Sham knowingly teased him by raising his voice"Evil Smile.....
Shravan closing his  ringing ears said " Sham, shut up.. so much shor aur halla....Bus Saachi  ji will be here shortly....Dont throw any temper tantrums now... I  must be in my best  when I meet her....later when you have behaved well I'll treat you with icecream, okay... Till then close you eyes,ears and mouth, and leave me in peace"...... A few people  who were now looking at this strange sight of a man talking and gesticulating to himself tried to keep a safe distance from himLOL...
 
The afternoon gave way to evening and the rehearsals were coming to a close... Winding up for the day,Saachi went to the parking lot for her scooter...
She saw Shravan loitering there and asked " Mr. Jaiswhal, you r still here?"..
"Saachi ji, this project is too important for us.. we cant take any chances.. we need  it to succeed as as you want it too... So the whole day I spent here chalking up strategies, meeting other staff etc.. Oh let me not bore you with shop talk.. I see you've done for the day here... care to join me for a cup of coffee"....He congratulated himself for coming up with such a slick performanceClap...Afterall he had rehearsed well what and how to talk to her... He was sure he had impressedThumbs Up her and shoving his nervous hands into his jeans pocket, waited with bated breath for her reply...
 
" Sorry Mr. Jaiswhal,I have some urgent work at home .. got to rush.. maybe some other time.. but thanz anyway.. see you ,bye"...she refused politely with a smile......She started her scooter and thought... GadhaShocked.... thinks he a Romeo.. hardly know him, here he is asking me to join for a cup of coffeeDisapprove..Today asks to join for coffee; tommorow for a date and the next day say he wants to marry me.....Its better to keep a safe distance from such smarty pantsROFL....
 Shravan's face fellThumbs DownOuch.. trying to hide disappointment well, he wished her bye...Afterall from now onwards he will be seeing her daily, there will be pleanty of other opportunities.. He  rode his bike a slight distance ahead of her; both neared the exit....
 
He was there waiting and  watching the exit  for her,in his black bike,black windcheater and black helmet...He saw her just after the other rider in his yellow bike whirring past in the opposite direction to her....he started following her...In the coming week his next plan of action will be set in motion..till then he needed to be patient.. seeing her off at home he rode towrds his place....
 
Chapter  18
 
 
The incessant ringing of the bell at 10am saturday morning, saw Shravan waking up groggily..."beta apurva stop playing with ur toy phone near my ears,..
Maasa ko sone do"...."arre  wake up,get up Shravan... subh dus bachgai"...shook Madhura, clearing his sleepiness.....Its ten already thought Shravan... oh my saloon appointment will be late... dashing off after a hurried breakfast, he enjoyed his time at the saloon cum spa forgetting abt Thara's b'day party..."Shravan bacchu, yaad hai thum ko kahi jana hai?".... Sham surfaced  again.... "oh terri ki...Idiot hun mein... Thara will kill me if I miss it, thanz Sham for reminding"...
Buying some gift on the way ,he entered Thara's big mansion... the party was already in full swing... Spotting his friends there shravan headed towards them, when Thara intercepted him...eyes piercing and blazing,lips compressed and hands on her hips she was like an amazon waiting to pounce on her kill....
Before she cld even open her mouth, Shravan did an unimaginable thing....he just hugged her, effectively shutting out her anger and her mouthLOL..Thara pleased by this gesture  was cooled down and asked.. .." Shravan, I forgive you for missing my cake cutting, but have u forgetten my gift?".... Pulling out a gift wrapped packet he wished her a very happy birthday... On opening it Thara saw it was a beautiful Titan signet watch,for which she thanked him...
 
Captain Bansal, Thara's father, greeted the three idiots and enquired abt their business venture...with  Thara close by, he said " you know Shravan, am thinking of getting Thara married; shes the rt age and a girl with beauty and brains....but  my Damadh shld be a gharjamai as shes my only child... what do you say?".. hearing this there was a diametrically opposite reactions from both Thara and Shravan.. Thara; happy that her father was thinking abt Shravan as her match... Shravan crestfallen and sad for being placed in such a sticky wicket...
"Shravan, You are from a well to do family, You have ur own setup, you have a lot of acquaintances...Do you think you can help me in finding a suitable boy for herWinkLOLROFL" asked Bansal saab...Shravan's heart skipped a beat.. doing a mental gig and high fiving in air; with all humility and seriousness he said
" Ji haan uncle.. there are a lot of good guys I know.. I'll sure help you"... 
Thara face was a sight to look at...Shocked and angry, bewildered and hurtShockedAngryConfusedOuch,she cldnt utter a word in front of her father..but she avowed to herself
"Shravan, only you, can be mine..nobody else can have you.. mark my words.." 
 
 
 
That same afternoon at Saachi's place a phone call came from the Mishra's for the prospective bride seein ritual...they had fixed up on Tuesday morning,which Saachi was not in favour of..." mammi ji , how can I go thro' this on weekday,esp when the annual fuction is near.. so much work, so much planning.. cant it be done with tommorow?"she asked... " dekho beta, whatever the boys side says we have to accept it.. you know how difficult our present situation is.. just take 2-3 hrs off and finish this" her mami advised...
 
Wanting  desperately to vent her frustration, she called up Rajshri and asked her to meet at the coffee shop, they patronised...There she saw her with three more people.. Uma sekhar, Amit Vohra and one more person greeted Saachi...
"Saachi meet Sudha , my senior... so tell me whats eating into you"...Saachi poured out her vexations and felt lighter.. Not that her friends wld be able to do anything abt it; but all the same its nice unburden ones heart and be comforted by it.....
 
 After sometime all left except Saachi and Rajshri...seeing Rajshri's dreamy eyes, Saachi enquired "kya horaha hai...sightless eyes , lost thoughts, sighing sounds.. kuch khaas baat hai kya?"...
" Saachi you know this Amit has been my batchmate since college..here we are doing IAS...Am in love with him since ages and still he hardly reads my signs and overtures"....
 
"Amit comes from a decent family..Being fatherless and only child hes very responsible and a self made man...A quite reserved person, brilliant in academics, courteous and dignity personified, hes everything and all a girl cld wish and ask for in her husband....How I wish he realises my love for him... sometimes I even wonder and dream  that if Amit was in love with me, I wld want him to do exactly like what ur stalker did for you."....Rajshri sighed achingly...
 
The very mention of stalker sent shivers in saachi's spine... so far there seems to be a lull... she didnt want anymore shockers..." Plz Bhagwan.. answer my prayers." she silently pleaded... 
 
Chapter 19  
 
Sunday saw the arrival of Saachi's sister, Sharmila and her husband Rajeev from Delhi....Rajeev an army man had quit from  The Service and wanted to search for a suitable job in and around Mussorrie...After the initial greetings  and pleasentaries, Shramila's biting tongue cldnt help commenting.."toh tues saachi's ladki dekhna is going to happen.. na kabhar na chitti na phone... aap sab bhoolgaye, we are alive and kicking and no maryadha for this damadh?.... strange, people only see the wealth and forget their relations."..She spewed acid, hurting and dampening everyones spirits....Naana ji and naani ji had to cool her and after much cajoling and pleading she became calm....
" jaan jaye par lachan na jaa"..said naani to her when they were alone..."beta bhurra math maano... the sooner Saachi gets married and goes out of this house, the better it will be for Shreya and you; for afterall you are my real granddaughters  na'..somewhat happy and pleased by this comment Sharmila grudgingly agreed to extend their  support  and help to Saachi...
 
Saachi, who overheard this felt sad; but more importantly she was very uncomfortable to be under the same roof as her jiju...It was a fact that given any little chance Rajeev never misses to leer and ogle at her...now she needed to be extra careful and diplomatic in handling him... Poor saachi....
The whole family then sat down together and discussed the prepations and Saachi's attire for tuesday... The house was filled with gay and laughter, reflecting the mood of its inhabitants....
 
 
Sunday night saw Shravan playing with his nephew Apurva in his room...Shravan was narrating the toddler the fairy tale of Rapunzel.... Entered Nidhi and Neetha, watching this heart warming sight of a  baby being huddled closely, gently rocked by Man,( still a child in their eyes) telling  a strange story.. A tale totally beyond its understanding, but the way it was said, Apurva, enjoyed it so much and acknowkledged it with his typical baby sounds and gestures....
It was a sight any photographer wld have clicked constantly, any artist wld have painted on the canvass, any mother wld have always etched it in her memory...
 
Nidhi's eyes were on her baby,watching it with pride and love... Neetha's eyes were on Shravan, watching him with wonder and new thoughts...
Ever since Apurva's arrival, Nidhi's attention and focus was always on him...
A natural phenomena which every new mother has...Even though she was treating Shravan as her own child all these yrs,her late pregnancy and delivery had shifted her affection towards her own... A dilution of love that was expected in such a joint family system...
Neetha, on the other hand who was always busy with her work,slowly got attracted to the baby... It kindled her motherly affection and love, a feeling new to her...So it was natural that she started treating Shravan as her child and showered him with her motherliness...
Indeed Shravan was triply blessed, to have such motherly affections bestowed on him...Dadhi, Nidhi and Neetha ;apart from his own mother....
 
" yeh kya hai shravan , Rapunzel fairy tale to a 6 month old...where and when did you learn it?..Even during your study yrs you never believed in fairy tales? why this sudden interest? and how can you narrate it so beautifully?"asked Nidhi.. with Neetha nodding her head in acknowledgement..." kuch toh hai didi...apna shravanko  kuch hogaya.. Do Theen din se lunch bhi miss karraha hai, patha hai'...."mmmm, baata, kya chakkkar kya hai"...
Shravan just smiled and said that the was nothing in this matter... its just that Doon school Ann Day and as he had to event manage it, he must be aware of their programmes...
" okay, we believe this  excuse now .... but we'll see how things shape up in future"..saying this Nidhi smilingly kissed his forehead goodnight and took the baby in her arms..Neetha just affectionately patted his head and followed in suit..
Shravan settled down for the night....thinking, why for the first time this fairy tale has affected me... is it the tale or the teller...slowly he closed his eyes and slept a dreamful sleep.......
 
Chapter 20
 
 
It was a cold and chilly autumn that dawned on  Tuesday.....Shravan after a hurried breakfast, dropped by his office, went thro' some papers, made notes and charted  out agendas for his friends and zoomed into Doon on his bike....
With a sunny and cheerful disposition, a stark contrast to the weather around him, Shravan was smiling in anticipation of meeting Saachi...
 
Yesterday he was everywhere, planning , sketching, reeling orders to his assistants... His staff always obliged him, the concerted effort resulted in a successful event well managed... He had constantly looked out for Saachi, from the corner of his eyes...Eventhough she was busy, she cld have not have missed him, roaming everywhere...He had kept a safe distance from her...  Once or twice she did stop to see whats going on....That brought smiles to his face and approval from Sham too...
 
Walking towards her class purposefully, armed with a ready excuse just to meet her,he bumped into someone....."Ugh... sorry, are you hurt"..." nahi, koi baat nahi.. you, new here young man"... asked Gopally. "Am Jaiswhal, ur annual day event manager"..." Am Gopldas Yadav , the math prof"....After the initial exchanges and small talk, they went their way...
 
Shravan,not finding Saachi in her class, enquired at the staff room and found the reason for her half a day off...A cold chill filled his belly...he felt an inexplicable uneasiness in his heart.. Shrugging himself and trying  to hide his disappoinment,he immersed in his work....
Gopally, smiling and whistling softly, knew the reason  for Saachi's absence,as he had overheard her asking for permission.. well, he thought, things seem to move fast.. need to go to Delhi next week and chalk out the next stage of programme... probably after the annual day...lets see..mmm..
 
 
Meanwhile at Saachi's house, the whole atmosphere was one of charged excitement and anxiety... The house was spruced  up clean,decked with flowers and filled with aromas of the kitchen and the soft tunes of instrumental bhajans and fragrant smell of agarbathis emanating from the puja room.. All were eagerly waiting for this wonderful Mishra family,lavishly praised by Naana and Naani ji...
 
Saachi, dressed simply, sitting with her fingers crossed, was like a yogi... Nothing much in it for her.. afterall this was one more bride seeing..All her initial apprehensions,goose bumps, butterflies in stomach were things of the past...She had become so immune to her  previous rejections, these days this kind of ritual was only a minor pinprick...She was now mature enough to handle it and take things in her stride... 
 
The Mishras arrived sans their son Ranjan... His parents, sister and another relative were all in attendance, except him...After the initial shock and disappoinment, maama and maami, enquired abt this.."Ji plz hume maaf kijiye.. kya hai ki Ranjan ko ek bahut important call aaya office se..urgently aaj subhah Delhi jana pada.. he cld refuse or postpone it..We feel embaressed to be here without him.. but agar hum nahi aaya toh yeh abshagun hoga na .. So we decided to go ahead and come here"..said his father..." behenji,plz aap galat math sochiye..first we will see Saachi and am pretty sure Ranjan will like our approval and see her later on"..said the mother to mammi...
 
After the initial pleasentaries and small talk, Saachi was welcomed into the room.. "baito, beta hamare pass... dont feel shy.. there is no need for any formalities.. thumare bahren mein bahut suna..ithni kubsoorthi, hum pehele nahi dehka.. our Ranjan is very lucky"...said the mother....Indeed Saachi was already making a very big impression on them, without even opening her mouth...She was disappointed that the boy didnt make it.. how was she going to meet him and ask and clarify her doubts before anything concretised...
 
As if reading her mind the father said " Inder ji agar aapko ethiraaz nahi hai toh, ek baat poochun...My son wants to meet her later casually either at the coffe shop or park, either with your permission or in your presence.. will you oblige him"...
"Jaan jaye par lachan na jaye.. kyun nahi Mishra ji...aaj kal, zamana toh bahut badal gaya..  we also need to move along with the change... ladka aur ladki kho ek dusrese milna chahiye, woh bhi akele mein.. we are modern in our outlook, koi problem nahi haiWinkLOL.. wherever and whever your son wants to meet our Saachi, we will gladly send her"Tongue.....Nanni hits sixers after sixers, a full six sixers in an overROFLClap...
 
All except the Mishras, were spellbound and speechless.. Naana and Inder open mouthed, Mammi, her son and daughter in law,wide eyed, shreya and sharmilla  in disbelief, Rajeev jiju shocked.....
Saachi stoically watched this great drama enacted before her... She knew in her hearts of heart Naani always had a soft corner for her.. Rough  on the outside she was all honey and sweet inside..It was not in her nature to hurt anybody wantedly.... Her words sometimes spewed venom but it was harmless and Saachi knew that deep inside Naani cared for this orphan....
 
So it was decided that Ranjan Mishra will meet Saachi at a later date  and place and  at a time convenient to both...After Mishra's exit, the house was filled with cacophony of sounds; discussions abt the family, its members, naani's self goalLOL etc..etc... 
 
While saachi got ready for school, two people were eyeing the whole scenario differently...
Sharmilla, seeing the wealth and upbreeding of the Mishras, was openly jealous;..
Rajeev, noting the absence of Ranjan, was glad, as it gave him a breather..
 
Saachi, unaware of these thoughts and aware that she was getting late to school, hurriedly wished all and left for school......  

  Chapter21
 
 
Shravan's concentration suffered...Like a homing in pigeon,his wandering thoughts always came back to Saachi..."Whats this new feeling, I have... Mein is ladki ko jantha bhi nahi hun....and here am thinking abt her and feeling sad by her absence..Arre mein pagal hogaya kya"....slap he hit himself on his cheek...."ouch that hurts.. arre maarna hai toh, thumhara boxing bag kho maaro, mujhe nahi..ooohhhh gone case yeh ladka"....cried Sham..."oh sorry sorry..did it hurt? I didnt feel anything'...pacified Shravan...
 
Slowly making his way towards the canteen just  for a coffee,(as Saachi's absence had killed his appetite),Shravan was a picture of a Dejected  man....
Shoulders hunched, hands in pocket,feet pointing in, he slowly treaded his way in...Walking straight to the counter and ordering, he hardly saw whats going on around..All the BG noise and the scence was a blur to him.. partly due to hunger and partly due to his feeling of Saachi's absence...With the tray of coffee in hand, he turned back and glanced around for a an empty seat...when a bolt of lightening struck him....
 
There she was having a cup of coffee with her co staff...His tray crashed, spilling the hot brew all over his jeans and on the floor.. the cup rolled over on the floor and came to rest near Saachi...The scalding pain of the hot liquid hardly affected him..Suddenly everything was bright and sunny, the gloominess and chillness of the Autumn weather was brushed away in one stroke...He felt as though he was floating,flying high up in the air in a hot air balloon...
 
The entire canteen was suddenly enveloped in a piercing silence.... people stopped in their tracks  to see what happened and realising it was nothing but a broken cup,soon filled the room with their incessant chatters...Saachi slowly picked up the cup and gave it to the advancing man...Why is he looking at me like a ginger eaten monkeyConfused, with that silly grin and addled sensesLOL...
 
However when Shravan neared her, she asked concernedly.."Mr. Jaiswhal are u hurt,hope you havent burned yourself. shall I get you another cup"....
Sham bounced up and said "Hey saachi, he hasnt burned himself, but he burning up now after seeing you.LOLWink... wish you cld hear me"...." Arree chup, kya kya boltha hai thum"...
" Ji maaf kijiye, Jaiswhal ji, are u alright.. Chot toh pair pe laggi na,sir pe nahi na LOLROFL...kuch hua aap ko?.... 
" Oh saachi ji, errrr kuch nahi hua,  haan mein teek hun,  err bus yehsahi kuch aur chintha,  mmm sorry... Since your now back,can we discuss abt the MC ing part of the show..do you have any scripts in mind or can you veto mine"...he asked enthusiastically... " ji okay,but your jeans are stained; dont you want to change them... cant this MC business wait until tommorow.. I have just come in and have lots of other work, so if you dont mind".....
"Oh never mind ji, we can discuss tommorow..dont worry abt my jeans, its  nothing, I have worked in even much dirtier stateLOL.. Till tommorow then"...
 
He walked away in a trance forgetting to even pay for the breakage...As soon as he came out out he realised with a start, he didnt know the outcome of her bride seeing..."Was it an yes or a no; from her or from the boy.. indeed a difficult question to pose her.. Oh how will I know what the result is.. Its so maddening; just like waiting for the third umpires decision...Oooohhh I must think  of a way know ,otherwise I'll go insane"..thought Shravan...
 
" Who said you arent mad..Already there are quite a few symptoms shown by you, only a conformation is needed... wait till you fully realise your feelings for her, then any half baked doctor will diagonise your mental stability...
 yuk yukkLOLROFL "chuckled Sham... " yeh sab thumari wajese hua na..the day you woke up, mera jeena karab kardhi...mein haath jhodtha hun bhai, plz mujhe chod dho"...pleaded  Shravan cryingly...."Teek hai, if you think like this I will sleep now , but remember its written in your destiny, without my help you cant succeed..until and unless if you call me I wont surface again".. Sham warned him and disappeared....
 
Saachi walked back to her class along with the staff; generally not a talkative type she hardly disclosed her personal life to anyone in school...todays happenings didnt affect her much... If Ranjan didnt see her today, then he will do so some other day, after all she was in no hurry to get married...the sight of Shravan crashing the  coffee tray and his stained dress and the silly grin  involuntarily brought a smile to her face....Nice man of 26/27 yrs old.. so boyish and handsome at the same time... mmmmm why am I thinking abt him suddenly.. he just a professional, here to do his job...anyways since I have to work with him closely, must always keep him at arms length...
 
After her work, she left for the day... As usual the Rider was waiting for her.. this time he didnt follow her..he was going to head for the icecream parlour to treat himself... it was just by accident he came to know abt saachi's bride seeing... how cleverly he had moved his pieces..A little BG check  of that Ranjan
 helped him very much.. just an impersonation of his official's call and his hurried departure to Delhi,resulted in what he wanted.. If Ranjan still persisted , he had another Ace up his sleeve, which he wld use judiciously...Till then Saachi was his and only his.....
Chapter  22
 
 
Breakfast that morning at the Jaiswhal house was one of mixed bag for Shravan. Waking up with bright spirits and eager to meet Saachi that day to discuss abt the MC scripts, he didnt expect Pratap to be a spoilsport....
" listen everyone my associate from Mumbai, Mr.Verma is here for a few days with his family... Ma aap ko yaad hai, jab mein 5 saal pehele, ek Jewellers conference ke liye Mumbai gaya, us samay yeh Verma ji  helped me a lot.. Ab woh apna pariwar ke saath 3/4 din kelye yahan aagaya aur hes checked in a hotel..Shravan, plz on my behalf,take his family and show them in around Mussorrie and bring them home for dinner today... you ask your friends to take care at office , teek hai"....
Shravan's face fell, hiding his disappoinment and agreeing to his father's wishes he left for the hotel to oblige the Vermas....
" arre Pratap thum kyun Shravan ko bejha..cant you send Rajat, whos already familiar with Verma'...." maa, mein jo karraha hun sahi karraha hun... verma has a daughter; a beauty who has done gemology masters in the states.. I have seen her in Mumbai before she left for her higher studies...If all goes well we can make a match of verma's girl with our ladla..hope you all understand now'...
 
Shravan on his way to the hotel was grumbling... kya timing hai Hitler ki..here iam to act as guide to some unknown faces,wheras I cld have enjoyed seeing the face thats troubling me...mera kismet bahut khrab hai, hai na Sham... oh no woh kaisa ayega, I have even lost him...Ringing the  room bell, he waited for Verma to open the door..
He saw a jeans clad high heeled petite figure  with a tight fitting shirt, knotted around the navel...looking up further he saw a painted face; eyes lined with mascara, eyelashes highlighted with false ones, arched eyebrows, blue tinged eyeslids, deep red lips and a nose pierced with a huge ring.. the hair was closely cropped around the head and bleached blonde... for a moment Shravan was dazzled by this sight and was starring openly, but common sense prevailed and he asked " maaf kijiye yahan koi Prakash Verma from Mumbai is staying na"...
"oh so you are the boy, how sweet and desi looking.. well Iam Ruby, you know.. Ruby verma or Rupali as my father prefers to call me.. come in .. hey dad look whos here"...drawled Verma's daughter.. Shravan was taken aback.. "You are the boy. whats this tomboy saying.. agar mein ladka nahi toh,aur kya..Aaajeeb hai"...
" arre arre,  aavo Shravan, your father had already informed me abt your services for us today..very nice.. you and rupali can also have the opportunity to get know each other.. two mangoes in one stone..your fathers ideas are always practical and wonderful"... said Prakash Verma...
"So this is what Hitlers' plans are"...he ground his teeth.. "wait till you get a dose of your own medicine all"... with a sweet smile, and honeyed voice, he started their guided tour of Mussorrie...
 
The whole day Shravan was in his best avatar.. he was to the point of discourtesy to Ruby in particular; teasing her looks and her accented language and later shunning and cold shouldering her; but very civil to her parents..
By the time  the evening wore on Ruby was almost to the point of tears...
Just before he left them to get ready for dinner,Verma called him aside and shook his hands and hugged him happily...  " Shravan am very happy today..
 my daughter who had almost become a shrew after her stint in US,showed signs of changing to her good old self, thanks to you.. I will gladly inform Pratap abt my blessings for this alliance... teek hai beta, we will see you at your home at 8pm'.....
Shravan's face was a sight to watch.. all his best laid plans were shattered  by these words...." lagtha hai yeh aadmi Hitler ka baap hoga...A full day's effort and work gone down the drain..jaldhi kuch karna hoga, warna mein in dono ke plans mein phasaunga... kya karnen, kaisa karnen.. haah dadhi hai na.. Zaroor woh madath karengi".... with a renewed hope he headed home...
 
Dinner was a lavish affair that night..When the Verma's walked in, they were greeted warmly by the hosts... the sight of Rupali evoked mixed responses from the family.. A somewhat rebuked Ruby, dressed in a plain salwar,but  in still painted face and boyish appearance and accented language did not elicit much enthusiasm from Madhura or Dadhi.. Nidhi was reserving her opinions to herself, while Neetha didnt show any outward emotions... the two brothers were some what indifferent, least they influence their father's plans...
 But the icing on the cake was Pratap's reaction, his emotions on his  face...Too shocked at the sight, he had never imagined a beautiful girl undergoing such a dramatic change in these years... It was hard to digest for a man like him, still rooted in tradition and following and practicising the dharma of joint family system... To think that such a girl like Ruby, even if she changed her appearances, would be able to adjust and accomodate in this family was beyond his imagination...
With full dimplomacy and politeness, he delicately informed his visitor abt his apprehensions towards the alliance... such was his manner and handling of the situation ,Mr.verma hardly took any offence.. he understood his daughters shortcomings and blamed only himself for this predicament...
 
That night Shravan was so relieved, he felt like jumping with joy.. without any effort on his part to influence any family member, his worries were wiped away.. "Thank you God... Ab mera raastha clear hai...Saachi ji will be waiting for me tommorow"...like a child he liked his lips and hugged his pillows and shouted a goodnight to all(including GOD and Sham)  and fell in to a dreamless  deep sleep..... 

Chapter  23

The next three days were the most significant ones in both their lives ...Shravan consciously aware of it, while Saachi was yet to realise the importance of it...Day in and day out he was there at the school.....sometimes discussing with her, sometimes meeting staff of other depts and some other times working with his own staff..

She saw him diligently going through each and every aspect of the task assigned to him... He climbed on trees and on walls, holding on to drain pipes just to get the right angles for his light fixtures and decorative pieces...He sat with her other staff and religiously noted down their inputs...Sunshine or chilly wind of this Autumn,didnt deter him from roaming around in the school, grabbing a bite whenever he could..A thorough professional he was; she saw him in a new light...
 
He saw her dedication to her work,her tireless energy and enthusiasm rubbing on to all others around her...Almost every staff he met had nothing but praises for her... A few years in the Doon, she was one of the most popular staff...The children,he saw were in awe of her, friendly with her and even idolised her.. A kind of medely of emotions they exhibited according to their ages...Never in his life he had seen or heard a music and dance teacher being the most favourite and popular among students of different classes...He saw a new facet of her personality.... His respect and regards for her grew leaps and bounds...
 
He heard her singing the songs she had composed for the ballet....Her melifluous voice was so divine.. he closed his eyes and let himself be carried away; far away into the deep space where everything was black and filled with vaccumn,except for the two of them and the soul stirring music and the heavenly voice....He saw her singing for the first time; a sight he wld always engrave deep in his mind.. Eyes open,sitting on chair, with students dancing around and watching them correcting their pose,her voice was drowning everything else...The rendition of raag Dharbari Kanada,( when Rapunzel sings to describe her separation from her parents) evoked a strange feeling of sadness,heart clenching emotion..Shravan felt as though she was reaching out to him, asking him to hold on to her tightely and never let go...He was lost in a different world never wanting to be back here...
 
For three days Shravan was in and out of his office...Though he had taken primary responsiblity of this project, he didnt forget his other commitments... He was also giving final  finishing touches to the IAS alumini party,scheduled right after Doon's annual day...At nights his thoughts and heart, were filled only with the sights and sounds of Saachi... A new feeling he cldnt pinpoint what it was; but very pleasing and soothing like a feather on his cheeks...
 
On the evening of that third day, a Saturday,Saachi's house received a call from the Mishras... their son Ranjan, with due permission wld like to meet Saachi next day at a coffee shop or at the famous Mussorrie's municipal gardens... It was decided with consensus that mama and mami will accompany  Saachi to the park and leave the young ones to meet after due introductions....That night Saachi slept a dreamless deep sleep, like a child without any care or worry about this troubled world....

Chapter  24
 
 
Sunday saw a hectic activity at the Sharma's house(Inder's surname was also Sharma)...saachi was bombarded on all sides,each giving different ideas and tips as to what to wear, how to look and how and what to talk;...." beta , thum yeh pink salwar, nahi woh green silk salwar, with works pehenlo...Sharmilla you braid her hair in french knots, aur Shreya thum, Saachi ko thodasa makeup kardo, aur...  aur kya, hope I have not forgotten anything"... said a very anxious and concerned maami... " mammiji, dont worry,relax..I will see whats fit and suitable for me and do so"... said saachi...
Nannu and Naani advised her as to how she can ask her questions without offending the guy.. Mama, for his part, didnt spare her from his few wise words......Only Shreya , Sharmilaa and Rajeev left her alone... Shreya understanding the momentous occasion, the first time Saachi was allowed to see the guy outside the home and that too alone... While Sharmilla and  Rajeev were watching the proceedings with a slight smirk and tinge of jealously...
 
Soon after breakfast, Saachi, dressed in a mustard yellow salwar suit with red embroidery thread on the neck and butti work all over,hair braided in a french knot and with very minimal makeup, left the house along with her mama and mammi....As prearranged they were waiting for Ranjan at the entrance of the Municipal garden, when a sleek car glided to a halt a few feet away from them...
Out stepped a tall, handsome, clean shaven man.. He was wearing a Charcoal grey Armani suit,matching red Versace tie, a black well polished Gucci shoes, an aviator Ray Ban sunglasses, a Rolex watch and had generously splashed himself with Zirh international cologne...To any discerning eye he wld radiate a man of wealth, to any consumer he wld be a walking advertisement of all International brands....But to Saachi's eyes he was a well dressed man, good looking , excuding  a raw power and masculinity..she was even slightly intimidated by him... 
After the preliminary introductions, they went to a quiet corner of the park and sat on a bench..."dekho beta.. thumare baaren mein bahut kuch suna, thanks to my inlaws...this is the first time am allowing my neice to meet someone outside the house.. so plz... and hope u understand my apprehensions"..mama ji cld help trying to convey his feelings to Ranjan...mami, ever since she set her eyes on him, was awed and speechless.."dont worry uncle ji.. I know and understand.. as soon we are finished here I will drop Saachi ji back home".....
 
" No, no no"..interjected mammi suddenly waking up...."Shreya will come here and then both saachi and she will do some shopping and come home.. you dont worry beta"... cooking up a new plan on the spur of the moment..." par mammi, mujhe..."... " haan Saachi thum shreya ke saath wapas aajaon"...she cut her of..
"Toh teek hai.. aap log baat cheeth karo,  aur hum mandir jakkar baad mein ghar chalthen hein.. All the best"... Inder shook hands with Ranjan and with a knowing look at saachi, left them..Both mama and mammi cld help, glancing back and commenting on how wonderful they look as a jodi...
 
After their initial awkwardness,both slowly started on small talk and pleasentaries..."Saachi ji, I have heard so much abt you fron your grandparents, but never imagined you to be beautiful like this.. Indeed lucky is the man to wed you...I have something important to tell you and make a proposition later if you agree to my plans"..Ranjan said cryptically...Saachi, who was feeling shy and looking down, suddenly straightened and was all ears..."ji, bholiye'..
 
"Err .. how to put this... you see.. theres something..mmm plz dont take offence or ridicule me...hmmm..".....he swallowed and opened and closed his mouth but didnt have the courage to say what he wanted..."Ranjan ji if, your are seeing someone or in love, plz go ahead and say so..dont make this drama of farce bride seeing"..Saachi was slightly annoyed...
"hmmm ahem...Ji.. you see Am a Gay...I have a lover in the US...nobody knows abt this at my home.. they all think am a good straight guy and want me to settle in marriage...Since I have heard so much abt you I wanted to lay all the cards on the table and not disappoint you"....Saachi was so shocked and speechless.. before she cld recover her senses and speak came another volley of blow...
Suddenly Ranjan was at her feet and pleading.."Plz Ji, marry me and we will go abroad, you can divorce me there;.. you can go your separate way , me in my own way..This way, you can escape from this predicament of your orphaned life and I will be able to satisfy my parents wish... One stone;two mangoes...What do you say?".....he said...
Regaining her composure, saachi gave him a look,best described as looking at a pest and  searching a fly swatter to squash it...Sick with his appearance and words, she was beyond anger...Without raising her voice, but conveying her disgust she said "Look Mr. Ranjan, who are you to decide my future...who gave you the authority to decide my marriage and shape my life...You dont have the guts to disclose your problems to your loved ones.. what a shame and farce life your are leading, cheating your  good parents"....She spoke sternly,her face exhibiting her anger and disappoinment to see such a creature...
 
Ranjan who was now close to tears was pleading and cajoling her to marry him and not disclose anything to his parents.. he wanted to do anything rather than loose face in front of his loved ones...sick and tired of this  sight and feeling nothing but contempt and pity, saachi said  " Mr, now I propose a plan for you.. see a good therapist, either here or in US.. Be truthful to your parents,Am sure they will understand after their initial shock, but for heavens sake forget abt me.. leave me to lead my life in my own terms.. My only concession to you is, I will convey my rejection after 2/3 days giving you enough time to compose yourself and face the reality.. till then hope you will not precipitate any matters... Goodbye and Goodluck for your treatment....Never ever do this again for any other girl"....
 
With head held high, feeling lighter after so many days, euphoric for deciding thus, Saachi was a picture of dignity and woman power personified..She was like a walking example of  Rabindranath Tagore's   Gitanjali poem..A few verses cited here...
 
Where mind is  without fear and head is held high
where knowledge is free;
Where world has not been brokenup
into fragments by narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason
Has not lost its ways into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought and action---
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.

Chapter  25
 
A furious Saachi, walked out of the park, without even a backward glance..Stopping, just to call Shreya and asking her to meet at Rajsri's hostel, she  walked all the way to simmer down her anger and frustration...
She met them both.. A concerned Rajshri and equally shocked Shreya at the hostel..."What happened".... they both uttered at the same time...
Gesturing to them and cooling herself with some ice cold water,Saachi related all that happened at the park...
" That cad even had the audacity to ask ur hand in marriage..What temerity and who gave him the rt to decide for u"... shouted her friend walking to and fro inside the room..."These men are  like leopard in a deer skin, so unassuming and normal and totally misleading and prowling for an innocent victim"...echoed a stunned Shreya...
"Believe me Shreya, life as a perpetual student is so much easier than actually earning a living and facing the prospect of marriage...How I wish mama and mammi leave me alone to choose my own lifemate and shape my destiny..Iam indebted to them, so much that I have to suffer all these pains and hurts"...Saachi cldnt help a few tears as her voice broke down...
 
To cheer her up, both decided to go out... As they were leaving the hostel they were joined by Uma and Amit... Allowing Saachi and Shreya  to walk ahead of her Rajshri briefed the other two abt the happening at the park..Both elicited a furious response, much to her satisfaction....
 
As soon as Saachi and Shreya reached home, they were surrounded by eager and anxious faces of the whole family.....Not wanting to create a scene and hurt their feelings, Saachi quitely went to her room with a forced smile and cheerfulness..As previously decided with Shreya, she cldnt help lying to them and said "Dehkiye, mein do/teen din mein faisla karungi; tab tak is baren mein aap sab mujhe kuch bhi nahi poochiye, plz"...Seeing her resolve and her face none cld approach and ask her for further details...
 
 
 
The next day at school, Saachi tried her best to forget yesterday's fiasco....Shravan who was watching her cldnt help wondering, what brought abt this change in her...She was like an hurt tigress liking her wounds and snapped whoever came near her...Poor fellow he was at the receving end most of the time...When he tried to talk to her abt some changes in the programming order, she curtly replied..."Mr. Jaiswal, this was decided by the Dean and the organising committee, so no more changes okay"... when he tried to smile and compliment her singing,he  received a cold stare and acknowledgement "Ji I know that; thank you" ....While on way to canteen, when their paths crossed she deliberately turned her way and avoided him...
"Today Saachi is definitely acting like a goat", he thought...."Whats eating her.. If someone had given a gun she cld have easily shot his head off, with or without any fruit on his headLOL... This is  a new facet  to her dynamic personality... Let me get out of the way least she stabs me back"Ouch...
 
By lunch time Saachi had run out of her steam and calmed down considerably..Never in her life  had  she let her personal problems affect her work and reflect in this kind of conduct... Sitting under a tree and discussing with her closest aide, she outlined her reasons for this aberration in her behaviour...Gopally, who was selecting the volunteers for the function nearby cldnt help overhearing this...Smiling benignly he walked away with a slight skip in his step...
The post lunch session of rehearsals went in full swing.. Seeing her wards doing an excellent job, brought the magnetic and charismatic smile on her face... Feeling remorse and slightly abashed she sought out Shravan and apologised for her behaviour... A speechless and awe struck Shravan was just starring at her hardly hearing what she was saying...What kind of blow hot , blow cold emotions she exhibits, he wondered... Woman-hard to understandConfused; always an EnigmaLOL....
"Mr.Jaishwal,hello are you here;  Wednesday is going to be a full dress rehearsal... Almost all our staff, Dean and the whole school will witness that.. so plz make sure all ur paraphernalias for the event is ready... We dont want any last minute problems okay"...
 
That evening as they left for home, Shravan was still in a confused state of understanding her;  Saachi, now back to her old self, was more focussed abt the show and nothing else.....Little did they know what was in store for them that black wednesday....

Chapter  26
 
Wednesday dawned, a sunless and cloudy day with a biting cold due to previous night's rains... Anything and everything that cld go wrong went that way for Saachi...
An early morning phone was start of the downslide..Ranjan's parents called up saying that their son had agreed for this alliance...While everyone at the house was elated by this, Saachi was fuming and furious.." That two timing, slimy EelAngry...thinks he can get away by this.. wait till I unmask him".. she thought.....When others were expectantly waiting for her reply, she dropped the bomb.." mujhe is rishta manzoor nahi hai, woh ladka bhi mujhe pasand nahi hai"..." What pagal hogayi kya.. Nice family, nice guy.. whats wrong on that account"... asked Mama echoed by  all others except Nannu and Shreya...
 
She steadfastedly stood her ground refusing to give her reasons..earlier when the boys had rejected her, she always felt sad and did an introspection of herself...For the first time when she had rejected, she felt so happy and felt like soaring in the sky... But her euphoria was short lived while others commented on her maddness and stupidity, Rajeev was grinning ear to ear...Slowly walking to her side and putting his arms around her and squeezing her shoulders lightly andhe wishpered in her ears "yes Saachi, you will never regret this decision"; Loudly  he said " Oh plz all, she must be genuinely having strong reason for refusal, lets talk abt this later...let her go to school now"....Saachi just wriggled herself free and  with an eerie feeling left for school...
 
She was late!!!  Today was the day her scooter tyre decided to get punctured..By the time she got it set right ,her mood was staring to deteriote rapidly...Seeing all the eager faces of her wards and other staff somewhat mollified her...Shravan along with Bunty was there, already getting things ready inside the auditorium...Seeing Saachi, instantly brought a huge grin on his  radiant face..Bunty quizzically looked at him and then at Saachi.."lagtha hai yeh ladka Phas gaya..aur us baat ko jantha bhi nahi... mmmm Shravan carry on carry on"...he thought
 
With the whole school watching, the dress rehearsals started in earnest.. At first everything was going smoothly.. then came the disaster striking one after another...The  visiting Master who was incharge of the Teen's hiphop and other medely of dances didn't turn up.. It was left for Saachi to guide them.. though it was chreographed well and the children danced equally well, there were minor mistakes and lack of fluency in the dance flow.. mentally noting it to correct later, Saachi moved to the next item...One of her assistants, eager to get things going slipped and fell twisting her ankle in the process, rendering her services to zero....
The next three programmes, the choir singing and a musical ensemble piece,and a dance performance went well, much to her satisfaction...
Then came the fairytale ballet.. the whole school was waiting with bated breath..Shravan and his team along with the school's art dept had done a wonderful job of erecting beautiful sets and excellent lighting arrangements..Intially all seemed going well  like in a  clockwork precision, but then came the avalnche of problems..
 
The boy playing prince charming, who had come to school inspite of his fever, swooned suddenly... The girl playing witch accidently pulled free the entire hair of Rapunzel... so great was the force,that she tumbled and fell ripping her dress in the process...The cascading effect was, the railings of the balcony were pulled free and came crashing down....Speechless and shocked it took a while for Saachi to fathom the magnitude of the effect it was having on the audience...
There was whole hearted laughter from the children and utter disbelief and stern facess from the staff.. Saachi who till now was stoically carrying on, suddenly found herself plauged by fear and failure.. her composure was fast deteriorating and she was starting to get all the symptoms of a mega headache..Somehow she managed to finish the rest of the rehearsals and waited with anxiously, the verdict from the Dean..Shastri ji, a wise man, was kind and offered her his encouragement.."You can do better than this my dear.. take it as one of those days, where all goes wrong.. you  can and will pull this whole show off this Sunday..Dont worry"...
 
Shravan who was watching the whole scene from the sidelines, was amazed to see Saachi displaying a varied emotions throughout this fiasco.. .. from a cool competant teacher, to a concerned motherliness towards her wards,to a frustating woman not getting things right, to an upset person close to tears but careful not to spill them... He instinctly knew she was very mad and emotionally traumatised; partly becoz what happened here and partly becoz of some other personal matter...He wished he cld hug her wipe away the tears that was threatening to fall anytime..he wished he cld erase those saddness and bring back that happy, smiling and cheerfulness always associated with her...
 
A somewhat composed Saachi, had a late lunch and started winding up the rehearsals, when the persons she least expected turned at her school.. An angry  Naani and Usha maami arrived wanting to know her reason behind her rejection... They were in such a kind of mood, that until she explained the valid reason, they wld not budge from there....So  Saachi took them aside and gently but firmly briefed them abt what happened that day in the park..." Hey Baghwan, inthna hua aur hume kyun nahi patha chala..why did you have to suffer so much.. dont worry we will do something abt this '.. said them both and left her..Shravan who was watching this now confirmed that it was more a personal problem for Saachi rather than this minor aberration today....His mind and body wished to be of some help to her, but how to go abt it he was not sure..He called out to Sham for some guidance, but knew that he wldnt make an appearance, much to his chagrin...
 
By the evening, Saachi thought that the worst was over.. with a renewed hope and resolve for a better tommorow she went to her scooter, to leave for the day... An envelope was stuck on her seat.. Opening it she found an ordinary paper with letters torn from newspaper ads,stuck like a collage and thus reading  "Forewarned....I will be watching you"..... A sinking feeling hit her...She didnt deserve this.. the whole day was nothing but disaster and now this was too much to bear...She sat on her scooter, dejected, disappointed   and thoroughly depressed and gave away to her tears freely...
 
Shravan who was also finished for the day, saw her in that state.. A heart wrenching sight, he slowly walked towards a sobbing Saachi....
