thank u so much guys..
This was the only thing she didn't want mayank to talk about and he started the same topic, she raised her head from his chest , "raat bht hogai hai, good night,", she was hurt at his question even, she was about to move to her side when maynk held her arm,"listen nupur, if u don't want to answer, than its ok, wo ap k parents hain, i really don't know what went between u all, but it was really shocking for me for u too behave in such a rude manner, no matter what happened , they are ur parents"
"exactly, no matter what happened , i was their daughter,", her tears had refused to stay within the barriers of her eyes and traveled down her cheeks, "i was their daughter,", her words were breaking down, and mayank was waiting to listen the reason, he knew it had to be something strong.
"wo mujhe kahen k mar jao aur main un se araam se baat karti rahon , hain na?, bcz they are my parents", her anger was boiling in her , she pushed away the comforter and stepped down the bed, was about to head towards the door , when mayank again held her arm..
"choriye mujhe, mujhe koi baat nahi karni hai"
"nupur plz dekho..", nupur was trying to get his hand off her arm
"nahi, choriye mujhe,"
"nupur plz behave reasonably", even after controlling he could not hide the anger in his voice and nupur was totally dumbstruck, she never expected mayank would talk to her in such stiff voice, and there she got scared, and stopped all the resistant moves of trying to shrug his hand off, mayank realized he was being rude, "i am sorry, but untill u won't tell me how would i come to know, mujhe sapne tu nai ayen gey na?", he was being polite and nupur finally managed to push his hand away, "ap ko ye sab mazak lag raha hai?"
"nahi, i really want to know, what is the problem, bcz according to me mis-behaving with parents is not acceptable, at ANY cost,"
"not even when they ask their child to die?", mayank made her sit on the bed again and sat beside her, nupur was not looking at him, "can we start from the begnning?"
nupru looked at him and he really wanted to know, "aisa kia dekh rahen hain?"
"wiat kar raha hon k may be u would tell me in a way that i would understand"
"ap ko samjh nahi aye ga?"
"bcz u have not went through all that, u will never understand"
"will u start speaking?"
"kia baton,kahan se shoro karon, ye baton k merey maa bauji ne mujhe kabhi insaan nahi samjha, bus ik bhoj samjha hai, aisey hotey hain maa baap?, kis karne aye they merey pass?, pehle tu kehtey they k shukr hia thori dair k liye nazr nahi a rahi, ab kahan se acahnak itna pyar a gaya hai?, achanak kahan se..
"NUPUR!", mayank was shocked at her rage-filled voice, "plz behave urself, pata bhi hai k kia bol rahi ho?", the anger in mayank's voice completely shocked her, "main ne kaha tha na k ap ko samjh nahi aya ga, u will never understand, "she pushed away mayank's hands and herself started wiping her tears, mayank placed her hands on her shoulders and then made her face him, "nupur ap is liye naraz ho na k ap se poche bina ap ki shaadi kar di?
"unhon ne poche bina meri zinagi ka faisla kiya hai"
"ap is faisley se khush nahi ho?"
Nupur closed her eyes, allowing the freshly formed tears to flow down which were blurring her view, "wo baat nahi hai", she managed to speak in a weak voice and mayank increased his grip over her cheeks, "tu kia baat hai nupur?"
Nupur looked up into his eyes and held his both hands on her cheeks, "agr ap achey nahi hotey tu main kia karti?", a strange fear was flowing out if her eyes, "ap ka ehsaan hai k ap mujh se pyar karte ho, i am obliged that u treat me like a princess, agr ap pyar nahi karte hotey tu main kia karti?, kahan jati?, maa bauji mujhe kabhi wapis nahi rakhtey, ab main khush hon tu unhain pyar yaad a gaya hai, mujhe pata hai agr ap nahi hotey tu...
"per main hon na nupur..",mayank smiled, and his soft voice penetrated through the deepest layer of her heart, he pulled her into his embrace, he totally wrapped his arms around her and she closed her eyes, trying to feel the emotions.After a few moments nupur gained strength to speak, "mujhe lagta hai k agr hamare pass paise hotey tu shiyed maa bauji aisey nahi karte , sirf is liye k.."
"aisa nahi hai nupur, money doesn't guarantee's happiness," nupur lifted her head from his chest to see a weak expression in mayank's eyes, "ap k parents jaise bhi they, ap k sath tu they, pata hai merey pass tu koi bhi nahi tha nupur,"
Nupur sat up properly looking into his eyes, "merey pass tu paisey they, but i didn't have a perfect childhood",nupur was staring at him blankly,
"i am an orphan nupur, merey mom dad nahi hain", he normally said such harsh words that she had to take a moment to encode the meanings, "per baba..'
"he is not my real father, wo merey dad k dost hain, jinhon ne un ki death k baad mera khayal raha hai, merey dad ka sar business snbhala aur phr jab mery parhai khatam hoyi tu mujhe handover kar diya",
"tu is liye baba chaley gaye they?"
"haan, he has his own family, un k apne bachen hain, bachon k bachon bhi hain, mujh se milney atey hain, i have spent all my life in boarding", nupur was till staring blankly, "per main koi complain nahi kar raha hon, i love him, main ne un ko apne dad ki jaga di hai, and i am lucky that i had him, and grateful to him for all he did"
"ap ne kabhi bataya nahi..main", suddenly her own problems were vanished somewhere, she thought mayank was the perfect person, listening to him like this was.."is liye keh raha hon nupur, ur parents were helpless, asia mat socho k paise hotey tu sab thek hota, and most af all what did they do?, they got u married right?, ap ko pata bhi hai log paison k liye apni betiyon ko.."
He couldn't complete his sentence and he didn't even needed to, the fearful expression n her eyes told him that she understood what he meant, he cupped her face, "nupur ye ku nahi sochti k jo bhi hua, it ended well", nupur closed her eyes and again lied down in hs embrace, mayank slightly started ruffling her hair,
nupur had been thinking all her life that money was may be the only reason for being happy but toady .. nupur wanted to think about all this more but mayank's closeness was acting like a drug on her, she wanted to sink in the warmth and protection she was feeling, she closed her eyes and slept, on the other hand, although mayank did not show nupur, but he was also shocked, he had been thinking that all those who had their parents were perfectly happy, he could never think that somebody with parents could be sad..
may be life was too dfficult to understand..
Life is not difficult to understand ...it is just too simple to understand...
don't think what BEST could have hapenned..
.think what WORST could have happened and stay happy!
Sometimes in life we feel so blue..but someone, somewhere is not happy as YOU
Somewhere far at the border when a soldier sleeps, missing his loved ones, he silently weeps
Somewhere a mother painfuly sighs coz, her new born baby didn't open her eyes
Somewhere a poor dad silently cries, when he sees his son begging for a bowl of rice
Somewhere in an orphange a little girl is sad, coz she misses her mom dad
So at times a reason to smile u may not have any, say to urself that u are happier than many
because life is beautiful and its not always blue...someone somewhere is not happy as YOU
