It's a cold
November morning in Delhi, where temperature has now fallen to 7 degree
celcius. Even then life didn't stopped in the capital of India.
A sample of this could
be seen in the Mittal house, in Vasant Vihar..
It was the same morning
for Meghna, as she woke up early, had a bath, got ready and after doing the
morning prayer , went to wake up her family members, first her dear husband ,
Anay, then her 4 yr old daughter, n after some nagging, she was indeed
successful in her job..Her next target was now her 19 yr old sister in law,
Meghna, opening the door of Anya's room- "Anya, my dear, get
up its already 8 in the morning .sirf tum hi reh gayi ho .get"
She tried to complete her sentence, but was stunned as
she removed the blanket, there was no-one dere . Suddenly a hands pat on her
shoulders she jerks, turns back
Meghna- " Anya!
Anya- " yup!
Bhabs .becoz today is special..something different .btw how m I looking?"
Meghna sees her from top to bottom ..Anya was
wearing a strapless pink top over a cream colour mini-skirt, hair open
Meghna " Today is not

Anya- "no Bhabhs but m

Meghna- " I don get u?

Anya holds her
shoulders in excitement'"arey wah! Meri bhabhi, wat a guessing power u have

Anya takes a deep
breath- "okk.. m gonna give u hint ''he

Meghna, stopping- "bas

Anya- "yup! Who bhi aisa waisa handsome actor nahi-----he
is Shantanu Khandelwal''..yes bhabhi he is coming to ur institute for a guest
lecture on special invitation"
Meghna , gets shocked n
stunned to listen the name'She started staring at Anya , who was busy
describing her excitement''suddenly-
Anya, shaking her-"
bhabs, o hello! Kahan kho gayi aap'..bro is callin u "
Meghna broke off from
her trance and went downstairs
At the break fast
Anay too was stunned to see his rather lazy sister
joining the breakfast table..
Anay- "arey kya baat
hai..aaj koi bahut khush and excited lag raha hai," he said while taking a bite
of the sandwich.
Anya, in a hurry- "bro,
dis excitement is becoz'''"
However, before she
would complete her sentence, Meghna interrupted- "amm'.Anya, u must be getting
late, jao hurry up"
Anya- "yup! Bye bro,
Meghna and Anay wave
her goodbye'Adjusting his tie, Anay asks- "what was she saying?"
Meghna- "nahi, nothing,
why don u hurry up too'.hospital nahi jana hai kya'n u remember today"
Anay, thinks n den
says- " aaj koi khas din hai kya?"
Meghna- "no'but koi

Anay- "ooh! I forgot

Meghna- "yeah! She is

Anay- "yeah, main

Meghna- "haan, and tum

Anay gives a gentle
kiss on her lips and waves her goodbye..
In the Institute'.
Anya comes in a hurry,
asks a girl, in a sighing tone- " Niki'..has he arrived"
not yet'.u r too much"
Anya- "thik hai, thik
Another girl comes-
"hey all'.its still not the time'.we
have to wait"
Anya- "wat do u wanna say?"
The girl- " I mean Shan

Anya- " God! My patience

Later , in Anay's
Hospital'.he is busy in a discussion wid a fellow doctor, wen his phone
rings'he picks it up'.Its Meghna..
-" hello'Anay, where r

Anay- " hein! I m in

Meghna- "God! Anay, u r

Meghna- " Ahaan bhi

Anay- "no, he is dere

the phone on the child's ears, says- "bolo, bolo baat karo'say heloooo"
Meghna- "ahaan! My
baby''hello'.kya kar rahe ho?"
Ahaan takes the cell in
his hands and starts blabbing, n starts playing wid the cell'Ayan gently takes
away the cell-" haan Meghna, who actually dere is a problem'''..i have to
attend a surgery now, it may take time'agar tum free ho to can u pick her
up'.actually I can send ne body, but she won't recognize dem so'
Meghna- " I got

Anya'"yeah u r

sure'.byee ,,love u"
He dials Anya n after
some arguments , finally manages to pester Anya for the job..
In the Institute,
Anya, in seen moving to
and fro'wid the cell in her hands, muttering something..wen a hand touches her
shoulders, she turns around-sees no one, the same thing happens again'.for
sometime'finally she gets hold of the hands-
-" Ansh! Wat yaar'why r
u irritating me"
Ansh- "dats becoz u
seem to be in such a gooood mood'."
Anya- "yeah! Its such a
freakingly good news dat I m on a high"
Ansh- " I don get u''"
Anya- "its my

Ansh- "paheliya mat

Anya- "koi miss Shah

Ansh- " so wats the

Anya- "stop it okay'.i

They reach the Irani's
in Gurgaon'It's a 7 storey hotel'''.They enter the lobby'
Ansh, to the receptionist-
" hello , young lady..can u tell me
where is the office of Mr. Ehsaan Irani"
The receptionist- " Its
in 5th floor'but sir, I m sorry..he is in a meeting"
Ansh- "okk 'no

Receptionist- " it must

He goes near Anya- "

Anya- " I don
know''.hogi koi behenji'.i don care' hogi koi b''''"
Ansh-, stares at her-
"girl! U r just impossible'''can't u speak nice abt other girls"
Anya gives an angry
glare at him'.Ansh tries to avoid her gaze, looking here and dere, wen his eyes
fall on something'.a slim petite figure, descending down the stairs'.It was a
girl, she was wearing a black saree with a backless blouse, hair tied '.Her
appearance was enough for catching Ansh's attention'he just kept on staring at
her with eyes wide open, wen she came near them''She seemed to a woman in her
20s'had beautiful large eyes, pouty lips, wid goggles over her head, holding a
purse in her hands''.She was indeed looking like a damsel in disguise'
She asked Anya- "excuse
me, dear'...u r Anya, right'.."
Anya, turns around, sees her- "yeah, its me Anya'.u are'"
The girl answers- " I m
Khanak , Khanak Shah''..i think aap Anay ki sis hain"'She extends her hands to
Anya nods, gives a
forced smile, and gives a handshake'.She tries hards to avoid her frustration
from showing on her face- " agar u r done, to can we leave now'"
sure''.btw sorry, I seem to have troubled u"
Before Anya could
respond to her , Ansh interrupted- " No, maam, never'it was our pleasure'."
Khanak- " aap'."
Ansh- " I m Ansh, Ansh
Patel'.He excitedly gives his hand to her"
Khanak shakes her hands
with him- "nice to meet u.." Ansh still holds her hands and stares at her..
Anya notices Ansh 's
flirting, gives him a pinch on his arm, w/o khanak noticing her---" chale dude"
Ansh comes out of the
trance- "yeah, yeah , sure'''."
They reach the car ,
Ansh unlocks the car door, and opens the door opp to his seat, offering for
khanak to sit there'but instead Anya, comes and sits there'Khanak sits in the
back seat''he gives a angry glare at Anya, who notices dat and signals him to
During the Journey,
Ansh constantly adjusts the rear view mirror to look at khanak..he kept on
asking silly questions to her, to which her replies were mostly yes or no'.She
was less interested in chatting with him n more interested in enjoying the view
of the capital of her country, her country which she had left 1 n 1/2 yrs back'..After
sometime, Anya got frustrated with Ansh's flirting and in a low tone, said- "
my dear'it would be nice for all three of us, if u concentrate more on driving,
rather than nething else'samjhe"
Khanak looked at the
city through the window of the car'It was the same Delhi, which she wanted to
visit since her childhood'She was born and brought up in Baroda, Gujrat'her
parents died wen she was only 3 yrs old'.She was a mere formality for her
maternal uncle'Life would have never been interesting for her, had it not been
for that fashion show in Baroda, where she got the best opportunity to interact
with some of the leading persons from
the glamour world, which resulted in a big u-turn in her life, ..She left her place
for Mumbai ---A city which was a place of dreams and aspirations for every
youngster..her life changed there, she saw many ups and downs in her
life'eventually the hurdles in her life were to much for her bear, and she left
everything, her country for living abroad''..Now, her childhood dream of visiting
the capital was coming true, but she always longed to visit dis place with
someone special, someone who meant the world to her, someone who she loved from the core of her heart''..dis was not a personal visit for her, rather a proffesional one.....she was a famous interior designer.
Khanak leaned back on
her seat, closed her eyes, a tear escaped her eyes'.Her thoughts were
interrupted as the car halted'
Khanak , got out of the
car, and followed Anya and Ansh, to their house'
The bell rang' Meghna
opened the door'.She stopped'She looked at Khanak, exclaimed- "Khanak!"
She threw her arms
around her-'Khanak hugged her back'
Meghna- "O my God! Look
at u'I, I can't believe its u'..u have not changed a bit'on top of dat, u have
become more gorgoues".
Khanak- "thanks'.but u
have changed hun! '''I mean gained a little weight"
Meghna- "yeah, blame it
on the doctor"
Khanak, laughs- "
hmmm'so kahan hai doctor saab'.."
Meghna- " u must have
Khanak- "yeah, but I
was in such a hurry, I could not even talk properly wid him''btw Aan must be
troubling him in the hospital.."
Ansh heard the name and
whispered to Anya- "yeh Aan kaun hai"
Anya, made a dirty
face- "how do I know?...why don u ask her only"
She leaves off
angrily..Meghna and Khanak notice dat'
Meghna asked Ansh- "kya
hua'is ne thing wrong ?"
Ansh- "no, who actually
main pooch raha tha ki Aan kaun hai"
Meghna- " u mean Ahaan,
okk ruko, main tumhe use milati hoon'"
After sometime, she
came back with a cute 6 months old baby, who was giggling and as soon as he saw
his mother, falled down on her'Khanak took the baby'.she kissed on his cheeks'"
missed me, my honey..mere Aan'.Aunty ko pareshan to nahi kiya."
Ansh- " yeh Aan hai'."
Khanak- "yup! My sweet
Meghna- " Khanak, he is
very sweet, upar se not like other kids'kitna hasta hain, always cheerful like
She stopped herself
from saying further'
In Anya's room
She starts throwing
stuff here and there''.her phone rings, she sees ' its Nikki. She cuts the
call...thinks to herself- " all BBs'.they must be enjoying now'sare attention
to unko mil raha hoga'n here I m '.." again she throws away something'.
The girls finally give
up n call Ansh instead, n tells him to inform Anya dat Shan is gonna visit the institute
in evening 6'..He went to Anya's room to give the news- "Anni''''"
He made his way through
the things scattered around, to the sofa where, she was sitting'
Anya- "kya hai''..aab
kisko lane jane hai"
Ansh- "kisiko lane nahi
, kisiko dekhne jana hai.."
Anya looks at him- "
Ansh- "matlab , ur
dream is gonna fulfill at 6 in dis evening''..fate is good wid u"
Anya, opens her mouth
in disbelief- " u, u mean, he is coming in 6 in the evening'.noo..u must be
Ansh- "aagar, mera
yakin nahi hota to Bajaj sir se pooch lo"
Anya gets up excitedly-
"OMG! I knew it, I knew it'" she took
his hands started jumping in joy'den- " okk , dude, its already 4 '..just,
gimme an hour'.i have to get ready'''..u wait for me '"
She went, Ansh, sighed-
"yeh ladki pagal hain..aisa kya hai us Shantanu khandelwal mein jo asie namoone
paida ho jate hain"
In the evening,
Everyone at the
Institute is excited''.Every eye is either on his/her watch, or on the entrance
gate'Suddenly all eyes move up to see something'A black Skoda Octawa at the
entance'..A man steps out---- he is a man of around 28 yrs, wearing a black armani
suit, with a cute subtle at his jaw'he was the dream man of thousands of girls
standing there, n also n inspiration for every boy'he was Shantanu Khandelwal,
whom the world fondly called as Shan----
Anya was overjoyed, she
wanted to run n hug him, but could not, thanks to the crowd n his body gaurds ''..He
reached the stage- '
All the girls were
shouting his name- "Shan, Shan'"
Shan gives a flying kiss
to all and waved his hands'.He shouted- " Good Evening New Delhi'''Good evening
all the beautiful girls and handsome hunks out there'."
Everyone shouts - "
Shan- " so, I m here'banda
aap sab ki khidmat mein hazir hai"
Again everyone shouted-
" we love uuuuuuuuuuuuuuu"
Shan- " thanks''''so do

Shan- "yup! Dats it''..arey

Shan- "so, before I say

extends his other hand and says- " Sorry'my friends"
-everyone shouts- " its

Shan gets up , gives a
flying kiss- " I love u all too"'..
