Khusboo looks on admirably at Khanak and
wonders how much luck is Akshay having with Shaan
PART V- concluding part
suddenly hears her phone buzz, looks at Khanak, thanks her for the locket
thing,, and leaves Khanak with her hands on the blue petti..
Khanak with a small smile, shakes her head and turns back to what she was doing, she opens the petti only
to find the blue shiny kurta with silver sleeves staring back at her. She has a
small smile on her face and removes it from the petti, and feels
it and closes her eyes,,, "lag raha hoon na main handsome" 'and with eyes
closed she whispers "haan bahut, itne ki mai aur kissi ko'..but her thoughts
are interrupted with heavy steps into the room'"Shaantanu'"???!!!
enters the room like a tornado,,, completely ignoring Khanak and marches to the
cupboard opens the top most shelf and removes a suitcase, flings it open on the
bed next to her petti ,,, and starts throwing folded shirts into it.
Shaantanu, yeh kya kar rahe hai aap?
Kyun tumne kya socha? Dhulwaadi ke liye, main kya apni cheezein tumhari iss petti
mein daloonga, please haan Khanak,, how tacky,,abhi hatto,, mujhe apni cheezen
pack karne do!
Kya?? Aap Dhulwaadi kaise jaa sakte hain??
hello madam, ,,, Tumhari Dhulwaadi jaane ke liye koyi visa nahin lagta,,, vahan
pe koyi bhi kabhi bhi jaa sakta hai..
Visa? KYA??? '(shaking her head) woh sab chodiye'Shaantanu lekin aap dhulwaadi kyun jayenge??/
Kyun ka matlab?? Kyun Nahin??? Arrey wah,,, main kyun nahin jaa sakta?? Tumhari
Bai ne kahaan hai kya, ki apni pati ko dhulwaadi mat leke aana
Dekhiye, mere khaandaan pe mat jaayiye'
pointing at each other and then exasperated'and begin again animatedly)
the way, tum mujhe ek baat batao Khanak,,,vahan dhulwaadi mein aisa kya hai
jiske liye tum baat baat pe apni petti utha leti ho'
Dekhiye Shaantanu, is baar tho Aada ke kehne pe'
Shaan: AAAADaaa!!!!! Kya tumhare Aada jaante hain ki tum nahin chahti ki main
aaoon,,, bataoon tumhare aada ko?
Excoos me,,, maine kab kahan ki aapko nahin aane ke liye, jaane ke liye'main
sirf yeh pooch rahee hoon ki aap aake karenge kya?Matlab'.
Matlab tumhein darr hai ki kahin main pichli baar ki tarah kuch ulta sulta na kar
doon?? Hai na??
sudden silence in the room is broken with the Khanak's soft tears falling on
the floor, to which Shaan immendiately hugs her,,, not looking at her makes it
a little easier for him to say,,,,
Main dhulwaadi isiliye aana chahta hoon taaki main '.
searching his eyes and holding his chest): Taaki aap?
(holding her by the shoulders): Taaki main woh saari yaadein mita doon jisse
tumhe takleef ho'
Lekin uss takleef ke wajah se hi tho hum mile aur ek hue. Aur yeh sachaai uss
takleef se itni badi aur khubsoorat hai ke jabhi main aankhen band karti
hoon,,, to sirf aapko paati hoon.
(holding her hands close to him): Sach? Tho jab tumne Sunny ko dekha, tumhe
suraj ki yaad nahin aayi?
(resting her head on this chest): Haan aayi aur darr bhi lagaa tha,,, ki aakhir
suraj ka humshakal hamare zindagi mein aise achanak aane ka kya matlab ho sakta
hai? Mujhe Suraj ki bahut yaad aayi lekin sirf ek ache sapne ki tarah,, woh
sapna jo mera beeta hua kal hai,,,aur mere aaj mein ek yaad banke reh gayee hai
her tighter) : Lekin iss Yaad ka zimmedaar tho main hoon'
Nahin Shaantanu,,,sachai yeh hai woh ek Hadsa tha,,, aisa hadsa jiske zimmedar kismet
thi ,,wohi kismet jo humein saath laayi,,, (with a small smile),,,aur waise bhi
haadse ka dandh tho aapko,,,
(letting her go): Woh baat tho hai,,,dandh tho main bhugat raha hoon,,,
(pointing finger at him): Aur yeh dand aapko zindagi bhar bhugatna
Arrey wah!! Tumhare liye teen patti aur mere liye sirf ek,,,,not good Khanak,
Teen? Teen pati kahan?
Tum apni patiyon ko bahut jaldi bhool jaati ho yaar!!! Kyun woh Mr. Talwaar (enacts
a sword fight) ko bhool gayee kya??
Khanak: Kya??!!! (grinning with a small laugh back):
Aapko pata tha??
Arrey main wohi to tha,,,agar mujhe tab pata chalta (pulling her by the waist
towards him) ki aakhir mein tum merehi paas aane waali ho,,, tho main tabhi ka
tabhi uss talwaar ko goli se udda deta,,
his chest and sassily smiling back): Chodiye!! Aapki tho tab girlphrand hua
karti thi,,,aap tho mere patiyon ko nipat lete,,,main aapki girlphrand ka kya
(holding her very close and feeling his hand over cheek to her ear and
whispering near her lips): Waise tho tum jabhi Natashajee Natashajee
kehtee,,,Natasha ka tho mujhe pata nahin,,,,lekin mera khoon tumhare liye bahut
clanking sound of the petti falling on the floor startles Khusboo and looking
at Akshay casually lie down in their bedroom says..
Boo: I don't know,,, yeh dono theek tho hai??
am sure they are okay,,,now come here!!
Aakhir Shaan ne tumse kahaa kya?
Yehi ki woh Dhulwaadi jaayega Khanak ke saath,,,taaki ab se jabhi Khanak
Dhulwaadi ke baare mei soche,,Shaan uske man mein aaye,,,,dono ek saath nayee
