Made for each other! - Part 3
Kapil was almost ready when he received a call on his mobile. It was Saksham. He told Kapil that he is waiting for him, near society gate. Saksham understood that Kapil is still not out of his trauma. There are still so many things he wants to share with him; which he failed to do yesterday due to Niharika's presence. Kapil who used to love ride his bike through office way, asked Saksham to pick him up today. Kapil asking for carpooling that was hint for Saksham that he wants to talk with him. Saksham waited for him while. Kapil was punctual about time. It was sharp 9.30 when Kapil reached society gate. "Good Morning Saksham!" Kapil greeted him. "Good morning Kapil!" Saksham too replied. "So what's still running in your mind?" Saksham asked fixing his seat belt. "Running? I am absolutely blank! I don't understand why I agreed for this alliance in first place itself. You know if Iwould have said no, I would have at least saved from this kiosk" Kapil said irritatingly.
Saksham laughed on his answer. "Bachhe, yeh motichur ka laddu hain. Jo khaye wo pachataye and jo na khayewobhi", he taunt Kapil. "You have already fallen into big dark hole by saying yes, now there is no escape", Saksham laughed more. "That's true. I am also feeling same. But Saksham just one thing; don't disclose about my marriage on anyone in the office." Kapil's request stunned Saksham. "But why?" Saksham asked. "You know our group very well. They will unnecessary create big gossip out of it. I don't want to face those stupid questions by them", Kapil replied. Saksham didn't interfere in Kapil's privacy; he knew very well that how much introvert he is. He was only open to Saksham and Niharika; for rest of the world he was still mystery. "Ok Kapil. I hope at least after your marriage you will announce that you are married!" Saksham said with big grin. Kapil looked at him with killing look. Saksham laughed and finally drove his car out of the society.
"Saksham I am too blank. I don't know what to do? You know how my dad is. Is there any way I could postpone this engagemenr and marriage?", Kapil asked innocently. "Kapil, why to postpone the engagement? I will advise you to carry out with engagement and then take a long gap in between. That way, girls family will be assured that it's finalized" Saksham provided his valuable advice. "What? Engagement?This week? Are you mad, I don't know anything about her?I don't want to get into this pre-booking thing itself. What if post engagement I come to know that she is not good match for me? That time it will be too difficult for me to say no. It's better to get rid of engagement and marriage both". Saksham was confused with Kapil's reply. "If you didn't know anything about her, why the hell you agreed for it?" Saksham asked. "Saksham, I agreed for it because I found her better as compared to previous girls I mate. I thought I will get some time to know about her. I said yes with expectation that our next meet will be fixed soon. But here
everything is running at jet speed. Forget about next meeting, I am getting engaged with her. I don't know anything about her yaar. " Kapil was taking out everything from his mind.
"Saksham,shall I ask her to give any reason to postpone this engagement?" Kapil came up with idea. "Kapil, are you mad? Don't do any foolishness which will ruin your image in front of
her." Saksham almost shouted on him. "Then tell me what the solution is for this?" Kapil asked worryingly. "Solution! I will suggest you to talk with someone elder from your family who could understand your problem at the same time can interfere in this marriage decision. Someone who can convince your dad about your problem. Do you have someone like that?" Saksham replied this and Kapil jumped with joy. "Mom! I can ask her to have word with papa. Saksham, you are best buddy. What a perfect solution yaar! I will talk with mom now only", Kapil exclaimed.
Kapil's mom was almost shocked after hearing story from Kapil's end. She was really angry on her son to put her in such worst situation. She shouted on Kapil, "Kapil, what's this? Your engagement is fixed this week. We are rushing to make everything fine and you are calling to inform us that you are not ready for it?" Kapil didn't speak any word understanding that his mom is upset. "Do you have any aff......." his mom didn't complete sentence even and Kapil replied. "No mom. I would have told you in that case." "Then what's the problem?" his mom asked him. "Mom, I don't know anything about her. How could I get married with her?"Kapil put up his thoughts. "What so great? You know your papa and I got married without seeing each other. Your grandpa chose me for your papa. Aren't we happy together for so many years? And didn't you get chance to speak with her when we visited her place? We are doing everything with your approval only. Nothing is forced on you" Kapil's mom adds reason from her end. "Mom that was different case. Now time has changed. I agree I got chance to speak with her but that was not enough. It was hardly 10-15 minutes. At least I deserve second chance. Mom, look I am not saying no for marriage. I just need time. Can you please speak with dad and postpone this engagement date and marriage date?"
Kapil's mom was almost shocked. She also knew very well it's not possible. "Kapil we don't have any auspicious time thereafter. That's why we are trying to make it fast. Try to understand son", she tried to explain Kapil. Kapil felt dejected that there is no way coming out. His mom sensed his sadness and said finally, "Ok I will talk to your dad. But I don't think anything is going to work out. I will call you later" his mom disconnected call. Saksham sensed that environment in tensed. "What happened Kapil?" he asked. "Mom is going to speak with dad. But less hope. Let's see how it goes" Kapil sighed. "Why don't you told mom, about client visit you were explaining me yesterday." Saksham asked Kapil. "They won't understand all those corporate terms and importance of it. I just hope dad agrees somehow" Kapil was worried.
Soon they reached office and Kapil has no time to think about it. His day was packed with his planned meeting schedule. He was very much busy in his meeting when his mobile flashed. It was call from his home. He sensed urgency of it and rushed to take that call in between that meeting. No one interrupted him as everyone knew how much dedicated he is for his work. "Hello", Kapil spoke. "Kapil what I am hearing all this?" his dad said in angry tone. "Papa....." he tried to explain but his father was in no mood to listen. "Do you want to make fun of us? If you didn't wish to get married then you should have told us first and not at eleventh hour. We have informed them already. Cards are distributed. And you found time now to say that you are not ready for it?" His father was shouting on him. "Papa...it's not like that, I want to get married but..." he managed to put reply with all his courage. "I don't want to hear anything from you. Your engagement will be scheduled on same date. Just tell me whether you are coming or not?" his dad interfered. There was dead silence on phone as Kapil didn't understand how to react. He expected that his dad will react in same way. He has no other choice, "Papa, I will be there. Engagement will be done on same date as planned", Kapil said this and realized call has been dropped from other end.
