Ashka was feeling like
being on top of the world, she wanted to share d good news with anyone, and who
would that be better than her brother, she dialed Shan.
He was in the middle of
his shoot for an add film.
"nothing, m in shoot
and Khanak must be in the institute"
"I din asked about her"
" I thought u will, so
maine pehle hi bata diya"
"really, always speak
abt someone special, isn't it"
"okk, guess what'I
happened to speak to my someone special"

"hmm, I think so"
"Wow! Ashi, that's
great'I mean how come, he is supposed to be in Sydney right"
"yeah, but now he is in
India..Shan, u know he came back just for me, I am feeling like being in
heaven, right now.."
"oh ho!..hold on sisy,
so u met him"
"nope, may be will meet
him today "
"okay, nice to hear"
In the evening at Shan' house, in their balcony , Shan and
Khanak were both sitting on the swing, with Khanak sitting in between Shan's
legs, while he cuddled her tightly. He was saying something, while she was half
listening, and half looking at the sky. After sometime, she gave a light yawn.
He was startled , he turned her face towards him.
"u r feeling sleepy
She rubbed her eyes
like a baby- "no'.i mean yeah"
"kyun, tired ho gayi ho"- he said with a concern
"no, I am bored"
"becoz since two hours u have been irritating me
with ur Neerav chanting"
"arey par..listen to
She stood ' " its like I
am in kindergarden and someone is trying to teach me rhymes..infact I can now write a biography
on dis guy."
He laughed at her
comment. He held her hand- "acha, don get angry yaar"
"no, waise bhi I have
some work to do"
He let her go.
After some time, he
came to the kitchen, she was cooking something, he held her from behind- "cooking

"hmm, not still, u want
"yeah, chalo, no need
She turned back- "really,
u will cook today"
"umm, not like that, we
will go out"
" yeah and we are going
"What?..are u out of ur
mind..its so expensive, no way..kahin aur chalte hain"
She refused initially,
but at last agreed wen Shan insisted too much
On the way,
Shan's phone rings, he
is about to pick the call, when Khanak smacks him on his hand- " how many times, I have told you to not talk
on the phone while driving, Shan"
"arey but important
call ho sakti hai yaar'tum bhi na, bina dekhe cut kar diya"
She looks at him,- "acha,
chaalo, don wry..let me c, who is it."
She was about to take
the cell, when Shan stopped her by holding her hand- "arey leave it.."
"why?..u only said it
might be important"
"no, it might not be
She looked at him
suscpiciously- " btw, tum mujhe cell dekhne se rok kyun rahe ho"
he looks at her,
then turns his face to the front- "umm,
"why are u not looking
at me , then"
"I m driving"
"den stop the car"
He looks at her- "are u
"what, u r driving, but
concentration kahan hai, its red signal, can't u see."
He stops the car.
"now let me check d
He looks out of the
window, biting his nails in nervousness.
She checks d call log,
its Ashka, she is about to say that , wen her eyes fall on the the msg icon,
she opens the inbox, its Ashka- ' bro, where r u, me and Neerav are waiting for
you, and Khanak is coming wid u or not"
She is stunned and
angry both- "so, dis is why u were preventing me haan'tum..r just a'"
"burthal, I know dat'.par
kya karoon, sach kehta toh tum manti nahi..and.."
He looks at her and replies
in a very pouty way. She tries to be smile, but controls and maintains her
He holds her hand- "come
on jaan, don be angry like that..Neerav is not bad, I m sure u will like him,
when you meet him, he is such a friendly guy..and.u know.."
"bas, bas'its okay..aab

"really, u mean u have
"say it sweetly"
He looks at her
"what..look ahead, its
green signal, stop staring at me"
cutie pie'mera shona..pleaseee bolo pyar se --"
She blushes, turns her
face to the other side and smiles a little- "Shan, stop being over romantic..concentrate
on ur driving"
"nah, say I love you"
She looks at him ,
pulls his cheeks gives him a peck- "I love you"
He smiles, and drives
Finally they reach the
restuarent, Shan parks the car and both walk towards the restaurant, hand in
"looks like someone at
"must be the guard"
"no, looks like some
lady, we know"
"naah, must be some
"Shan!.i am not blind, can't

Shan is startled, he
looks in his front, its indeed Ashka.
"hey , Ashi, wat are
you doing here"
"nothing yaar, I was
just waiting for you both'ooh, how are you khanak"
She goes and hugs
Khanak gently, who responds back .
"kyun, where is Neerav"
"he is busy on the
"uh! Lets go inside"
They go inside , to the
table which Ashi had booked . Shan and Khanak take the adjacent seats while
Ashka goes and sits on the opposite side.
Shan checks the menu
card- "so, u will have any thing"
He looks at Khanak,
then at Ashka, who replies- "no, Neerav has already booked the orders"
"aha! Has he, I knew
that, he is still the same, hain na..always perfect and '"
sometimes too much, I told him to wait for u both,but no, he says he has stil
has not forgot whats ur fav'ooh btw, khanak do u want something else"
Before Khanak could say
anything, Shan interrupts- "arey nahi, Khanak ko wahi pasand hai jo mujhe pasand hai"
Khanak looks at him,
den at Ashka, -"haan , he is right"
"really..dat sounds so
Ashka looks at both of
them lovingly, her left palm on her
cheek, elbow resting on the table
"u both are soo cute'waise
Shan tumne Khanak ko Neerav ke bare mein baataya"
"baataya!...don say it
again Ashi, I have been irritating her with my Neerav chant since 4"
Khanak looks at him, -"arey
nahi Ashka didi, aisi koi baat nahi hai.."
"haha, don wry
dear..its okay, Neerav hai hi aisa , if you meet him, u wil know..and there he
Both Shan and Khanak look to the other side, A guy
, tall almost 6 ft, wheatish complexion,
well dressed and sober looking comes to their side. Shan hugs him, then
introduces Khanak to him- "Khanak, this is Neerav and Neerav , this is Khanak ,
"yeah, but how do u know
"becoz Ashka has been
telling about her since morning"
Shan laughs, they start
having their dinner, while talking and chatting, except Khanak, who was busy
staring at Neerav. He did looked like the one described by Shan, he was sober,
decent, calm, yet humourous and friendly, but was there was something else in
his eyes. She din wanted to look at him, rather she decided to concentrate on
other things, but that something was too distracting for her, she looked again,
it was his eyes, they had something which made her feel insecure, rather scary.
Later in their house,
at night, She wanted to share her inner thoughts , her fears with Shan, but he was too busy
with showering his love rather than listening to her, which made her later give
up and get engrossed in dat thing.
The rest of the days of
their lives were smooth and peaceful . Infact after a month, Shan even got a
offer to work in a movie, though it was a negative role, yet Shan accepted it.
Khanak was very happy about it, but her only matter of concern was that all
this had happened because of Neerav's recommendation.
She was standing at the
balcony, when Shan held her from, giving her a peck on the cheeks.
She turned back- "tum
"abhi'u know I am soo
happy today, never knew I will be working in a movie, tumhe pata hai everything
is so different, its rather a different feeling .."
Khanak smiles , she is
happy, looks lovingly at Shan- "yeah, and even I am very happy for you"
" and I should thank
Neerav for this "
Her expression changes
to a rather pale expression, he notices that- "aab kya hua'''.now tell me..do u
have any problem with him"
"then why do you always
make a low face whenever I mention his name"
"I don know"
She tries to go away,
but he stops her- "no u have to tell me today, I am seeing since the day u met
him, something is bothering you'kitne baar Neerav came here , but you never
speak with him properly"
She looks at Shan- "sach
kahoon Shan, bura toh nahi manoge"
"of course not, bolo,
wats their in ur mind"
"paata nahi kyun, but I
get scared when I see him"
He is startled- "What?"
"haan, I mean, since
the day I saw him, I found something in his eyes, which scared the hell out of
"do u mean to say he is
some vampire or some devil"'he bursts out laughing
"Shan, I m not joking ,
I am serious"
"okay sorry, dekho,
aise koi baat nahi hai , his eyes are always like dat..infact u r d first one
to notice his eyes'..yaar, he is nice, cool and calm, haan bas jab he is angry,
toh he is just out of control, I mean kind of dangerous"
The last line suddenly
rosed a sense of fear in Khanak, she held Shan tightly, who was unaware of this
sudden reaction and instead hugged her back.
Thus the rest of the
months passed away smoothly, with Shan being busy in his movie, while Khanak
was busy in her institute, and also in her small office, which she had opened
as a interior decorator.
Though both had a busy professional
life by day, by the evening, it was only personal life which mattered to them.
Mostly they would spend their evening at home, though at weekends they usually
would hang out with friends or alone.
It was the mid of February.
Shan's movie was complete shooting and it was soon to be released, hence he had
to go out of town for promotional work. Khanak was left alone. Intially she was
apprehensive about staying away from him, but later compromised for the sake of
his career. Things were running smoothly
for her, as by day time, she could get herself preoccupied with her work, while
at home, her entire time would spend at Batras, sp playing around with Gunnu and
the other kids. She felt like a child
Everything was fine in her
life, until that day changed her life forever, a day which she could never
forget in her life.
It was 28th Feb ,2009
It was Adil's birthday. Khanak
initially din wanted to go to the party, since Shan was not there, but Varun,
Diya and their oder friends came to her house and insisted her , she had to
agree eventually. At that time , Gunnu
and his mother were also there. The kid was excited hearing the name of party.
Like any other kid, he too wanted to attend such parties, with the sole pretext
of meeting his favourite celebrities. He
innocently asked Khanak for taking him with her, before she could say, his
mother interrupted, refusing him to allow. But later, on Khanak's insistence, she had to approve.
Khanak was happy because she was
thinking that the child will be happy to make his dream of meeting his fav
stars a success, becoz in that party not only actors, but also few persons from
other fields would also be there. Also the fact that Gunnu even had few friends in that circle,
made his mother more agree to his going to the party with Khanak and the
others. But what Khanak could ever imagine, was this decision of hers would be
the worst decision in her life ever.
At the party, Khanak
was busy with diya and others. She was glad to see Ashka in the party , but not
so happy to see Neerav.
Gunnu was busy
clicking pics with the camera, playing around with other kids. While the kid
was busy in his project, roaming around the whole place freely, he came across
a room, which was though closed from outside, but had an open window to it.
have ignored the room, if something din caught his attention. It was a guy
inside with a girl. He came closer and peeped more clearly, it was the same guy
who he has seen sometime back, even in Khanak's house. He den remembered it was
the same tall guy, whom Shan refers as Neerav, but the girl was not a familiar
He had always seen in movies about a girl and a boy being alone in a
room, and was always curious to know abt that, but everytime his luck failed as
his mother never allowed him to watch such scenes. And this was like a golden opportunity
to him, he wanted to show his friends , he adjusted his camera, but to his
shock or rather dismay, it was something else. The guy was mercilessly
manhandling the girl, slapping her and torturing her physically. Gunnu was
startled, he din knew how his fingers pressed
the flash button.
Neerav was starltled as
the flash light striked him, he understood someone was taking his pics, he
pushed the girl away, opened the door and came out of the window, Gunnu had by
then tried to escape away, but could not help himself from being caught. Neerav
stopped him from behind, Gunnu slowly turned behind, initially he tired to be
fearless, but as Neerav held him by his collar, lifted him up, the kid looked
at Neerav's eyes, he was frightened, his hands started shaking, Neerav calmly
snatched the camera from his hands and after putting him down, threw the camera
on the ground with such a force that it broke his camera. He went away, leaving
a shocked Gunnu behind.
After sometime, Gunnu's
fear turned to anger as he collected broken pieces of his camera, tears flowing
down his cheeks, he wanted to teach the guy a lesson.
Everyone were gathered
at the poolside. Gunnu spotted Neerav standing near the pool with Ashka ,
Khanak and others. Suddenly an idea
stuck him. He took out something from his pocket, it was a rubber band and a
small pebble, he aimed straight at Neerav , who was unaware of this attack, The
pebble hit him with such a force that it made him lose his balance and fall
straight into the pool. It was a Kodak moment
for everyone as the almost everybody started laughing, even including Khanak
Ashka gave him a hand,
he came out all drenched, He looked around him, everyone was laughing at his
expense. Even Ashka was laughing. He was
angry, feeling insulted. He could not have known the reason had it not been a
thumbs down signal from Gunnu. His anger grew more, he wanted to teach that kid
a lesson for making a mockery out of him as even after quite a long time, people
were still laughing at him. Also the fact that he was almost drunk made him
lose his senses more and allowing his anger to prevail over his sense, he by
now wanted to teach that kid a good lesson, even if it meant taking his life.
Gunnu was somewhat
aware of this thing as was noticeable by the constant stares from Neerav. His
excitement on winning suddenly changed into fear, he wanted to go home. He went
"Khanak didi, mujhe
ghar jaana hai"
She turned around,
placed her hand on his cheek- "kyun, ho gayi tumhari fun khaatam"
"nahi mainu mamma ke
paas jaana abhi"
Khanak smiled at the child's
"okay, Adil I think I have
to go now"
"arey, u are going
alone, I will drop you"
"umm, no thanks Adil u
have to be here, its ur party after all"
Though Varun and even
Ashka offered her to drop , but she refused politely as she knew she was strong
and confident enough to be not depended on anyone, moreover, travelling alone
was never new for her.
She came out of the
farmhouse, she was at the road side, she held Gunnu's hand, his hands were
cold. She was amazed.
"Gunnu, tum theek toh
"beta, Mamma se baat
The kid nodded. Khanak
took out his cell and dialed Mrs.Batra's number and made her talk with him.
After sometime , the child was back to his normal self, talkative, telling
khanak everything that he enjoyed in the party, and then he mentioned about
Neerav, and everything that took place. It was now Khanak's turn to get scared.
Suddenly Shan's words started ringing in her mind-' wen angry, he is very
She felt as if
something bad was going to happen, she held Gunnu's hand tightly. They were
supposed to go by taxi ,and for that they needed to cross the road, Gunnu who
was suddenly feeling relaxed and happy, somehow got away from her hold and made
his way quickly towards the other side, not before a car coming from the left
direction almost hit him, had he not been pulled by Khanak.
She scolded him- "pagal
ho kya, chup chap mera haath pakdo samjhe"
"arey aap itna darte
kyun ho..aapko pata nahi, main Punjab da sher hoon, sher, mainnu maut se dar nahi lagda"
Khanak gave him angry
glare, her mind was full of anger, fear and surprise. Anger at the kid for behaving
like a brat at late night, fear of something bad going to happen and surprise
at the way that very kid, who was getting scared and wanting to talk wid his
mother, just changed his behavior and was being in such a playfull manner.
Suddenly she received a call, it was Shan,
she was happy to hear his voice, and as she was speaking with Shan, Gunnu
somehow managed to get away from her grip and ran away to the other side, as he
was eager to reach home quickly.
Khanak could have
continued her conversation on the phone, when suddenly something caught her attention,
as if some fast moving object has collided with something and den there was a scream. Startled she turned around, to
see Gunnu nowhere wid her , only to find him lying on the road. Without wasting
a second, she ran towards him, the phone dropping from her hands on the road.
However as she was just few feets away from him, something came again fastly,
and in a moment , before she could realize whats happening, a splash came with
strong force on her face, it was a splash of blood. She was numb, frozen , her inner self started shaking, her mind was blank. She felt
heavy, her vision blurred, all that she could see in front of her was not the
10 yr old boy, Gunnu, but rather a heap of flesh.
He was Dead.
