Roops had accepted her proposal from Baji
live on-air, and listeners all over Mumbai had called in to wish them congrats,
most people couldn't get over the fact of how romantic his proposal had been,
and loved his idea, Roops couldn't believe Baji had, ...well could be so romantic, it
was beyond her imagination, and she'd found out Naku was in on it too, which is
why she'd put the radio on at the right time, as Baji had already speeched her
It had been decided that Roops
and Baji will get engaged two days after Dutta's wedding, and than she would
continue her education, and within two years she would be married, but this
meant that Baji and Roops could now openly go out with one another, and not feel
like they were cheating the family.
Roops had begged Nakusha to
dance on her engagement and said that she would never forget it for the rest of
her life if she did, Naku had brushed her off by saying she will see, knowing
she would find some excuse eventually.
Plans for the wedding were
going on for Dutta's marriage with Supriya, who was now beginning to panick as
the hours inched closer, she knew Kala Tai was helping her and Ravi runaway,
why... she hadn't a clue, but did she care.... no she didn't, she'd written the
letter as asked by Kala and had been prepared since than, she found it quite amusing
that Naku had the hots for Dutta, and thought that he wouldn't even look at her
twice, even if she'd been replaced forcefully, but that wasn't her concern.
The wedding day was literally above thier heads,
and Naku was still shocked as to why it was still going ahead, why hadn't Kala
Tai done something by now, she started feeling scared, but when she'd asked Kala,
she simply replied to her that she spoken with Supriya and everything Naku had
told was a nothing but a huge misunderstanding, and in fact Supriya was a very
decent girl, and she'd just been scared of something that had happened that day,
and Ravi was just comforting her, that was all, she said slyly, knowing Naku
would have a hard time believing it but it didn't matter things would all be
clear in few hours, thought Kalavathi.
Ab tum bas ek achi dost ki
tara apne Dutta ki shaadi keliye tayaar ho jao, she told Naku, who was very
reluctant, but thought that maybe Kala Tai was right, she would never let her
brother be betrayed by that witch.
The day Baji had proposed to
Roops, seemed like a good day to Naku, but little did she know it would end up
like sour wine.
When she'd walked into her
room after a chaotic long day, her bed was full of lots of different colourful
bangles, glass bangles, it was like someone had purchased a whole shop of them
just for her, her smile had appeared without reasoning, and than Dutta had been
standing in the far corner of his room very cooly with one foot up against the
wall, and arms crossed which looked like he was waiting like she'd stood him up on date, which was
never fixed, thought Nakusha.
Naku... he started, I could
never believe that when I say this, I'll despise the very words coming from my
At first Naku hadn't a clue on
what he was on about, but than as he spoke things became
...but I guess you've served
me and my family long enough and it's time you're free to go, once my wedding is
over, feel free to leave anytime, he said sounding upset, but before you go I
want you to know one thing Naku, that next to Baji you have been one of my best
friends in a long time...and I appreciate every moment spent with you, and if
there's ever anything that you need my help you with, consider me first Naku, promise
me that, he said.
Naku eyes were teary, she
couldn't seem to find her voice, it wasn't lost, it just didn't want to be
found, all she could do was nod her head in assurance and agreement, hoping she
didn't give away her obvious reason for her tears, Dutta knew she was emotional,
well she was a girl for god's sake...there sentences start with tears and end
with tears he thought, ...but this time her tears seemed like they meant
something different something more deep, maybe it was her attachment she had with
his family, for the first time even he had felt a slight tinge of remorse for
losing her, but why he hadn't a clue, as he left her to her state he placed a
reassuring hand on her shoulder and left.
Was this it was it over,
before anything had started, as she stared at the bangles he gifted her, will it
be only his memories that remind her of his love that was never meant to be, she
thought as she sobbed without any sound, what hurt the most was that she could
never have him, but had only at one point wished she could, as her tears fell on her
lips.... she cried even harder, ...Saab I wish I could tell you....I wish you
could know that how hard I've been fighting to let you go, some days I make it
through, and some nights I don't, I wish I could believe that there would be day
you'll be mine, but when I look back why can't I regret my love for you Saab,
why do I know that if fate threw me in that fire again, I would happily burn all
The day had arrived, Naku had
had a weird feeling, about the whole day and couldn't wait for it to be over,
Naku had worn the white dress that Roops had bought for her, and even in the
dark make-up she looked absolutely beautiful, she had worn her hair half up and
half down, and it looked as though she was wearing eyeliner inside her
waterline, which made her blue eyes stand out like they were two big blobs of
water stolen from the sea reflecting the sky's colour in them.
Dutta had told
Naku to take a picture with him when he saw her, he couldn't understand why she
didn't pay attention to herself more often, she was in actual fact pretty,
colour clearly didn't define beauty thought Dutta as he stared at her, not
missing the bangles she wore from his gifted collection, she wore the green
coloured ones again ,he thought, as he released a chuckle out loud, and said
'lets hope these ones last the day', he joked carefully touching them on her
wrist noticing the few little scars that had almost fully healed now, as they
both stared at each other it felt like there was a invisible bridge appearing
said that "love could cover the greatest distances and make them seem too small,
and at the same time it could make the smallest distances seem far too
great"....well I think that love is probably the only traveller to overcome
these distances, which one begins as a novice and becomes an expert not by force
but by will, will they never knew they had....
Naku, he said, I
hope that I will see you again in my life, ...pata nahin kyun, par aisa lagta
hai ke yeh ek toofaan se pehle ki khamoshi hai, I feel that today I'm making one
of the most wrong decisions in my life....
Saab....aap aisa mat socho, jo
bhi hota hai ache keliye hota hai, she encouraged not believeing her own words
for the first time, Bappa sab keliye kuch na kuch soch kar rakhte hai Saab, aaj
bhi aapki zindagi mein yeh din zaroor likha hoga...
...yeah I know Naku, but the
truth in the whole matter is I don't love her, and today it feels like something
very wrong is happening Naku, but I'm failing to see what... he said finally
telling someone his feelings.
The wedding had begun, each
and every moment making Naku more tense, as they waited for the Dulhan to come
at the mandap, there was a long wait.....
At first nobody thought much
of it, it was common for the girl to take her time, but than there was a murmur
and gasp from Ayi Sahib, Naku had a gut feeling what she'd feared had come true,
but than Kala Tai had said she sorted it out...
Shub mahurat beeta ja raha
hai... said the pandit finally getting impatient, when Supriya's parents had
cried that Supriya was no longer in her room, an outbreak of sudden gossip had
begun amongst all the guests, when Dutta stood up in alarm holding his sehra up
and looking through demanding answers, but than he knew already...it couldn't be
none other than Anna, thought Dutta quickly trying to find a solution, Dutta had
ordered Baji straight away to serach every corner of every town, and he wanted
results within the two hours, if anyone fails to speak, than you know what to do,
Naku was surprised at Dutta's
anger, she'd seen him angry on the first day they met, but that anger had been
nothing compared to what she saw cooking up inside of him today, it was like
somebody had deliberately tampered with the lion because they were foolish not
to know which boundaries they'd crossed.
Baji was on it straight away,
they'd done a complete search of the whole area, they found nothing, Kala had
informed Ravi and Supriya that Dutta hadn't a clue about anything yet.
But what Kala didn't know was
Baji had his contacts in other towns, he'd sent his men all over neighbouring
towns with pictures of Supriya, and had eventually found out that she was seen
on a motorbike with man of small build, and by the help of those contacts had
them held captive without further delay.
Baji had called Dutta and let
him know that they'd found Supriya alive, and that the informants had told him
that Ravi and her happened to be eloping, together, he finished.
When Kala and Sudarshan found
this out, they started dripping sweat like pigs, Suds told Kala he will handle
it, and told her to keep to the plan with Naku still active, and said Ravi will
be finished before Bhau gets there.
Ravi and Supriya were tied up
and thrown in the back of a tattered van, with their mouths taped, and fearing
for their lives. Sudarshan had told Baji and Dutta that the route they were
taking had been blocked by police patrol and they would be searched if they
travelled down that route, and said that he knows someone who will be able to
deliver them to Patil Wadi, without anymore delay.
Dutta and Baji had for the
first time believed Suds, making it easier for him, Dutta and Baji had waited in
Patil Wadi eagerly, Baji couldn't wait to kill Ravi, for once he wouldn't be
stopped he thought angrily.
Sudarshan was given the go
ahead to take the two hostages, as they were given permission by Baji, but
before Ravi and Sups were freed Suds had killed Ravi by cracking his neck from
behind in a sudden movement causing him to die within the same mintue, leaving a
totally shocked and scared Supriya wimpering and shivering in fear, but
Sudarshan weren't finished, he flashed all his teeth and smiled at her in a very evil manner, and than
took off his shirt and and screwed it up and suffocated her to death, until
she'd stopped breathing, ...na rahe ga baans, na baje gi bansuri, he said, as he
stuffed their dead bodies back into his car boot, and drove towards Dutta and
Baji in Patil Wadi.
Upon seeing their dead bodies Dutta had
fumed, but Suds told them that Ravi had managed to escape and he had no choice
but to kill him in self defence, and as for Supriya he'd given her an easy death, and saved Dutta from getting his hands dirty over her,
said Suds, knowing Dutta would be angry, but it would at least save his and
Kala's necks from being slaughtered.
Baji had suspected Sudarshan, but didn't
want to aggravate the situation further, so stayed quite, after some time Dutta
had told Baji to rid of the bodies in a way where no suspicions were raised
leading straight to them, and told him to hang Ravi's body from the bridge
nearby, and slit Supriya's wrists and leave her body nearby Ravi's, as this
would indicate that Ravi was Sups lover who had committed suicide 'cause his
love was marrying someone else, and by the time Supriya had located him he'd
hung himself, and therefore her madness had caused her to slit her wrists and
join him in afterlife, ...a perfect alibi.
Dutta couldn't get over the betrayal, how could he
be so fooled, but than he would never know what the real story was, thanks to
Sudarshan who'd killed them without proper reason.
Sudarshan had texted Kala and told her to carry out
'plan b' as 'plan a' had been executed successfully, which she had begun
already, by exposing the letter left by Supriya and had caused havoc before the
boys reached home.
Dutta had finally come home, but much to his
surprise Naku was being questioned and flung around, when Dutta had caught her
and demanded to know what was going on.
After that one thing after the next had happened so
fast, that Nakusha was still shocked that why Kala Tai had accused her of
helping Ravi and Supriya escape.
When Dutta had heard this fact he couldn't
believe it, or rather he didn't want to believe it, but than her worst nightmare
had come true, Kala had told Dutta that she was in love with him and that's why
she filled Supriya's ears against Dutta so she could sit under a ghoonghat and
get married to Dutta instead, whilst Supriya and Ravi legged it, look Bhau
Supriya's wrote everything in this letter, which she addressed to Nakusha and
thanking her for stopping her from marrying such a creature such as yourself,
finsihed Kala Tai.
For the first time Dutta couldn't think straight, he
couldn't take anymore, he'd left the scene and went into his room and drowned
himself with a whole bottle of Whiskey, while remembering all events that
occured with Naku, more than Supriya it had been Naku's betrayal that was
suddenly bothering him, did she really love him, is that why she'd spoken to him with so
much authority, what he'd mistaken for her friendship, before he knew it, he'd
shattered his room and the whole setting of his room which had been set for his
suhaag raat, by the time he'd finished breaking each and every last item in his
room, he'd fired himself up so much with hatred, that without thinking he'd gone
back down to where all the drama was still carrying on.
Within and instant, Dutta had held Naku at gunpoint
and asked in the most chilling and fierce voice Naku had heard yet, .....aye
Naku....kya yeh, sach hai, bol...main tere muh se suna chahata hoon, bOOLL ! He
shouted making Naku jump, but not run, she stared straight back at
Tears weren't stranger to her, but being accused of betrayal was, she hadn't wanted this, and why would Supriya write a letter based on a lie, she hadn't a clue, but if Bappa had given her her chance of confessing her love to the man she loved, than she wasn't about to back out, as she held onto the front of the barrel in place on her forehead, she closed her eyes and confessed as the tears rolled down her cheeks, ...yeh sach hai ke main aap se pyar karti hai, lekin maine kisi ko koi dokha nahin diya, aapse kab pyar hogaya main yeh bhi nahin jaanti, bas itna jaanti hai ke sirf aap ko khush dekhna chahati ti, lekin Supriya Tai aise bhaag jaye gi mujhe nahin pata ta, she paused and opened her eyes, ......Saab maine Kala Tai ko bola ta....
...but before Naku could carry on, Kala had interfered by slapping Naku arond her face hard causing her to stumble from her feet....
Dutta felt the slap echo in his ears in pain, he felt anger towards Naku, she'd betrayed him because she wanted him to love her, she was dark skinned, and because he'd treated her normal like other girls, she'd gotten big dreams of aquiring him, all of a sudden it had made sense to him, when she found out about Ravi and Sups she used the whole situation to her advantage, and he remembered Kala Tai saying that Sups had mentioned in the letter that Nakusha would have taken her place as his bride, such a well thought plan thought Dutta, causing a sudden increase in his anger levels, and without thing twice he'd gulped a big amount of Whiskey from the bottle and grabbed Nakusha and dragged her towards the mandap and lit aggravated the fire with his spirit, and threated the pandit to recite the wedding matras, which he did without further delay.
The fire that was burning before them had been clearly provoked by Dutta, who said that this fire lit by toxins considered unpure will resemble the base of this relationship which also began from unpure and disgusted thoughts, as he dragged her around the fire and vowed to do all the opposite of everything that was being recited.
He'd used one his hefty chunky dog chains from his neck as a mangalsutra, and carelessly filled her maang with sindoor, smearing it all over her parting messily, like it were some kind of prank.
Kala had been shocked. The idea was not let Dutta get married to Nakusha, but to kick her out and only shatter his trust in women full stop, but when anyone had tried to intervene Dutta had clearly been ready to shoot their guts out before everyone without further delay, so therefore no one dared to speak.
He'd grabbed her hand in force and dragged her to his room, all the while she'd just stared on not knowing if what had just happened was all real. When Dutta reached the top of the stairs he'd told his so called guests that the wedding was now over, and if they didn't mind he had his suhaag raat to entertain in the most disgusted and sarcastic tone, and put his hands together in front of his shocked audience above his head, and left with his now wife Mrs Nakusha Sriram Patil.
When Naku had entered the room the state of the room was not even worth describing, there wasn't a single thing that remained in it's full form, eveything had been destroyed, Dutta had asked twice more to accept her crime, but Naku had kept saying what she'd said earlier, making Dutta even more angry, and grabbed a large photo frame to throw at her in fustration, but when she'd screamed and put her hand in front of her face to protect herself from the hurt, he felt his heart skip a beat, her cry pained in his ears, he remembered the day she'd done the same thing when the truck had come at her, and he couldn't bring himself to harm her, not at that moment anyway.
He questioned her again and again, this time he'd grabbed her wrist trying to make her speak with the fear from his words, when she'd winced in pain once again, but than Dutta realised the blood seeping through his clenched fist on her wrist, her bangles had crushed to a thousand pieces but she'd held onto her pain, ...why he thought in more fustration, ...why wern't she screaming in agony, when he noticed her front of bravery he tried to shatter her, and squeezed harder piercing each and every glass shard deeper into her delicate wrists, she'd let out a faint grasp but stopped herself by pursing her lips together and letting her tears and tense shoulders do all the work, but Dutta couldn't bear to see her in pain, even after what she'd done, why did her cries bother him so much, when Seema had screamed in fear and pain he'd loved every bit of it, in fact he'd wanted to hear more, making him batter Govind even more just so he could hear her soul crying.
But Nakusha's cries was making his soul shiver in pain, why..... he was hating every bit of torture he put her through, but he didn't stop, he wouldn't let her know how much she'd managed to hurt this man of stone, he would make her confess her crime no matter what.
No one had spoken to Naku for days on end, Roops never believed that Naku could be part of any betrayal, but had to keep her distance from Naku not wanting to, Baji had a gut feeling something had been very wrong in the whole situation, but for the moment had to stick by Dutta, who needed his friend more than anyone, Baji had noticed that Dutta had taken this betrayal even harder than the one Seema had brought upon him.
Naku had no choice but to go around her chores daily, as no one was allowed to talk to her, she had been going to the market regularly to get her peace of mind from the little bit of fresh air and talking with Kaka, he was the only one that had spoken to her these days.
When Dutta was leaving he saw Naku getting on Kaka's rikshaw, and shouted from accross the road, ...Kaka, yeh kya kar rahe ho, humare ghar ke naukaro ko rikshay se jaane keliye paise nahin milte, he said sternly, making Naku embarassed before her Kaka, and with a brave smile, she told Kaka that it's okay Kaka you don't need to feel guilty I felt like walking anyway, ...main chali jayegi she said disguising her tears with a shivering smile, which ached to cry.
Dutta had no idea what was going through her mind, she was so good at pretending, he thought, as he stared at her holding all her tears and pain back, whilst walking away without argument, he would have no idea of how many tears were falling for him each night, and neither would he know of the endless hours she'd wasted thinking that maybe...just maybe there had been a reason Bappa had got them married in such circumstances.
The man she'd fallen in love with had been locked away somewhere deep down inside of him, and the man that had married her was a Dutta she felt she would never know, she knew that she would never have a chance to even kiss him goodbye.
Okay I'm gonna officially class this chapter as a two in one lol, but hey guys b4 sayin ne ting, do consider the fact that this whole Ravi/Sups fiasco and Naku/Dutta wedding did take one whole month to complete lool, ...aur maine tho phir bhi ek update mein sab likh liya....
