That man came everyday on his cycle with an iron trunk tied on the carrier seat with tube of tyre. He would ring the bell of the cycle outside the gates-tring tring. And school children freshly released from their confinement in classes for day would come flocking towards him. The rush was to get ones favorite flavor of ice candy before it got over. It was just syrupy colored crushed ice, yet it tasted better than the ice-creams and kulfis mom made or dad bought on occasions when one was really good.  The attraction and temptation was not for the taste as such. Maybe it was but then it was very small part of the reason why every child saved up their little pennies to buy one stick of crushed ice candy. The major attraction was that the ice candies were strict taboo at home. Urban legends and horror stories about how these candies were made with sewage water, colors made from paints and the candy-walla's hands being as dirty as sweepers were told as regularly as fairytales. Every fever and illness was attributed to one stealthily taste of the fearful, vile and unhygienic ice-candy. But no matter how cunningly I tried to disguise the fact that I had a candy after school, she would find out as soon as I hugged her. She would narrow her eyes a little and take my backpack from me checking if the tiffin box was duly finished and then ask in mellow voice, "Mamon, aajke abaar sai pocha borof gullo kheicho?(sweetheart, you had those filthy ice candies again?)" I would shake my head making my mashroom-cut locks fall on my eyes, "Na maa!" And she will launch into her long tirade about my tonsils, my exams and dad's wrath (though the last one never worked on me as dad never ever scolded his little princess). But the whole time only one thing went round my little five year old brain, "How did maa know? " I would look at my uniform and white socks, "No! No marks of spillage of the juice or stains. So how did she know?" One day, I couldn't help myself and asked her,"Maa, how did you know I ate candy? Rickshaw-walla uncle told you? Did you come to my school?" She would smile a mysterious smile (for a dim five year old like me it was Mona Lisa smile even though I did not know the meaning of It.) and tell me, "Don't ever lie to Maa. You know, God gives special eyes to every Maa so that when we cannot be with our babies we send those special eyes with them so that we can watch them all the time. Whenever you do something wrong, Maa will see it and catch you with her special eyes." Even after so many years, as a working independent adult in a big city of fast developing nation, sometimes I feel those special eyes on me- like when I got wet in the rains last week even after just being recuperating from a fever and cough, when I stay up late in the night and sleep till midday, when I have panipuris from the trashiest tella. I feel those eyes on me, reminding me that she is watching over me, keeping me from harm.

Ch23: The Special One

Nakkusha pressed the button on the elevator for the reception and turned around to see the descent of the glass walled elevator to the ground floor. She spotted Dutta at the lounge talking to an old couple and throwing surreptitious glances at the elevators trying to spot her. As their eyes met throw the glass, she could feel his eyes go alive and felt color seep on her cheeks. A jolt broke her from her thoughts as the elevator came to an abrupt halt on the fifth floor. A long legged woman in white pencil skirt and formal shirt walked in pressing the first floor button. Nakkusha's smile vanished as she realized it was Rakshanda. They both ignored each other pointedly till the shrill ring of Rakshanda's phone broke the silence. Rakshanda opened her bag hastily trying to dig out her cell. Her movements seemed less controlled and jerkier as she clumsily dropped the cell on the floor and it landed near Nakkusha's feet. Nakku instinctively bent to pick it up but stopped in shock seeing the wallpaper picture blinking on the screen of the cellphone. "Excuse me!" Rakshanda took the phone as on cue the elevator doors opened to the first floor. Nakkusha felt a shiver down her spine as the picture kept hitting her.

In trance, she walked out of the elevator and almost walked past Dutta who he pulled her towards him to prevent her from crashing into someone. Dutta shook her a little,"Aye Meethu, kahan khoye hai? Kissi gorey ke picchey to nahi bhaag rahi?" Nakkusha looked at him as if waking from a dream and smiled,"nai wo main…wahan wo..kuch nahi bas aise hi." Dutta smiled,"Sonu, debu ki yaad aarahi hai? Baat karni hai kya sabse?" Nakkusha looked at him with affection,"aap samjh jatey hai na?" Dutta smiled indulgently-Hmm, to ye baat hai ! Sunn abhi hum sabke saath ye sightseeing walla plan khatam kartey hai, sham ko main khud teri sabse baat karwata hoon,OK? Nakkusha nodded as Dutta put his arm around her waist leading her to car where his friends and team was already waiting.

*********************************************************************************************

Hungary is a diverse nation with its rich heritage. The natural hot springs in the country make it favorite destination for relaxation and rejuvenation. The Baths and mineral scrubbings were as famous as Turkish counterparts. Many resorts bragged about complete health and fitness therapy in natural locations and resorts themed of ancient Hungarian villages. Nakkusha watched longingly as Dutta swimed in the hot water pool of the resort with his team members and their partners. The air was slightly chilly and water looked inviting as its clear blue sparkle under the cloudless sky. Dutta had repeatedly told her to try it once but she had demurred and told him to go ahead while she relaxed near the loungers at the side with herbal drink he had ordered for her. She saw the ladies being scrubbed and polished by the spa attendants but she was too shy and ticklish to let anyone touch her body. She couldn't even contemplate shedding of her clothes as shamelessly as these women. But the water, she sighed. She had heard from her mamiji who had gone to Shimla-Manali once in her youth that Manali had Guru Vashisht's ashram which had such natural hot springs. 'Ek dubki maaro saare paap,saare dard dhul jaatey hai. Tann aur mann dono pavitra ho jaata hai.' She had said it was as good as Ganga snaan. Nakkusha knew her husband would hardly take her to a trip to Haridwar-Gangotri anytime soon. His reply when she had mentioned it still rang in her ears,"Haridwar? Chaaro dham ki tour? Main? Ok! Chal tey hai! Ek shart par…dekh paap dhone ke liye paap karne bhi jaruri hai na? to wahan jaane se pahele hum log sin city Las Vegas jayenge…wahan tu mere saath peeke tunn hogi aur  casino mein jua khelegi aur bhi kuch chotey motey paap karegi ..phir lautetey waqt hum ye pilgrimage mein jaake saare paap dhoke aayenge. Deal".She munched the little crisp pakoras the attendant had provided with the drink and chided herself,"Kya nakku? ye thodi na teri Ram bhumi hai? ye to in firangiyon ka desh hai. koi thodi na tujhe mamiji ne jo bataya waisa mehsoos hoga." She sat up straight,"par jobhi ho..ek baar paani mein utarti to achcha to lagta na? Par…itne log hai..To kya hua? Ye log bhi to paani mein hi hai. aur waise bhi yahan kaunse tere rajnandgaon waale hai…thodi na kal koi teri kanaphusi karenge ki haan wo nakku hai na shadi ke baad badi besharam ho gai hai. waise bhi sirf haath gilla karne se kya hoga? kum se kum paani ko chuke to dekhun…Haan ye theek hoga."

She walked towards the side of the pool and sat down eyeing her husband who was laughing with his friends at the far end. She dipped a finger cautiously in the water tracing a line. The warmth immediately surged a pleasant shiver through her arm. She smiled as she traced his name on the surface. After splashing for a few minutes, she stole a glance at him again. He was floating on his back with his eyes closed, in the middle of the pool still far away from her. She shook her hand and quickly folded up her salwar pants to her knees and dipped her foot in the water taking care not to get the hem wet. It felt heavenly. She sighed with pleasure as the muscles of her calves which had been hurting due to the long tour of the vineyard this morning. She had not been particularly interested in knowing how wine is made but the prospect of seeing grapes growing in orchard had been appealing. But by the end of the tour she had been feeling like a mouse being dragged about by a cat. As the hot water eased her hurting legs she closed her eyes in ecstasy.

"Maaza aa raha hai na?" his amused voice startled her as she saved herself from completely slipping into the water. Nakkusha frowned at him. How did he reach her without making any sound? She hesitated,"haan..theek hi hai. main jaati hoon." He stopped her by placing a wet hand on her waist leaving a wet mark,"Arey ruk! Ab aa gayi hai to enjoy kar na? Dekh tujhe Manali ke maazey yahi mill gaye na?" She shrugged trying to avoid another argument. She was too happy and relaxed to think of a comeback. She asked him a question to divert him instead,"accha ye paani garam kaise rehta hai? Humare wahan talab ka paani dupahar ko garam ho jaata hai suraj ke taap se. Yahan to suraj bhi sar nahi chardta." Dutta grinned,"zameen ke niche geyser laga hai." She made a face at him,"Uffho! Ab Manali mein garam pani ka phuwara hona samjhta hai..par yahan kaise?" Dutta asked,"Manali ke phuware ka existence samjhta hai? kaise? " She smiled,"Arey wo? Wo to ram bhumi hai na, isliye. Aapko pata hai wahan Ram ji aur lakshman ji ke Guruji Vashisht  ki ashram hua karta tha. Ek baar Rishiwar Samadhi mein leen the…aur charo aur bahut baraf par rahi thi…tand se paani jam gaya tha. Jab rishiwar ne aankhen kholi tab lakshman se kaha ki wo nahana chahtey hai aur lakshman ko paani garam karna hai. Lakshman ji dwuvidha mein ki yahan to baraf hi baraf hai Garam paani kahan la payenge. Tab unhone mantra walla teer pheka aur dharti phat ke wo phuwara nikala..rishiwar itne khush huye wahan naha ke ki unhone vardan diya ki jobhi us paani mein dubki lagayega uske dukh dard khatam ho jayenge." Dutta looked at the belief shinning in her eyes and swallowed his laughter,"accha..to aisa hua tha? Hmm..to phir Lakshman ka nishana 2-3 baar chuk gaya hoga. ya phir usne trial run liya hoga wahan manali mein teer maarne se pahele." She squinted at him angrily,"Ehhh! Dekho Lakshman bagwaan ka roop hai..bhagwaan ka nishana nahi chukta, nahi trial run lagta hai." Dutta shrugged,"to tu hi bata na tere bhagwan lakshman ka chalaya teer ye Hungary mein kahan se gira. Nahi bata sakti na…main batata hoon. Kyunki koi teer tha hi nahi. Ye sab kahaniya hai, ancient fairytales,samjhi? Actually ye paani sulphur naam k ek mineral ke karan garam rehta hai. asal mein is paani ke garam hone ka ek karan ye bhi ho sakta hai ki is zameen ke kai hazar feet nicchey koi zinda volcano hai. dormant jwalmukhi samjhi? Jiski garmi se ye paani bhi garam rehta hai." She looked at him in terror,"Hey kanha! Jawalamukhi?" He shook his head,"Darr mat abhi nahi phutega….scientist logon ko bata ke phutega.wo log isse monitor kartey hai. it'safe." She splashed her feet a little,"To aap bol rahe hai ki prahlad ki kahani ki tarah ye bhi aise hi hai..par log aisa kyun bolenge?" "Log tabhi to wahan jayenge dubki maarne. Dekh is paani mein sachmuch dard ward kum karne ki power to hai. par wo kissi wardaan se nahi baalki is paani ke special minerals yaani khaneej se hai. log dur dur se jaatey the wahan is treatment ke liye ab sab ko kuch to bolna hoga ki kahan jaa rahe hai isliye boltey the teerth hai. aur koi tab yah nahi jaanta tha ki paani garam kaise rehta hai to ek aise hi bhagwaan waali kahani banna li." She shook her head at his cynicism. Dutta pointed a finger in a direction,"meethu,wo dekh kya hai?" She looked in that direction and next moment felt herself falling forward.

With a resounding splash she found herself dunk below the surface as metallic taste of hot water hit her senses drowning her. She was pulled back up as she struggled to get a hold of herself. She found herself enclosed tightly in his arms as he pressed her to his bare chest,"Aye tu theek hai na? darr gayi kya? Sorry! Sorry! Main to bas aise hi..Main jaanta tha mere acchey se bolne par bhi tu pani mein nahi aayegi..isliye jabardasti….tu theek hai na…see, its realy shallow over here…tera pair floor ko touch hoga." She felt her body ease up as her toes touched the solid ground and her heart realized that she was in safe haven of her husband. The anger surged back full force,"aap ko bhi ajeeb daurey pardhtey hai..koi bhalla aisa bhi karta hai…aap sochtey samjhtey to hai nahi..bas raita phiratey rehtey hai." Dutta laughed- relax! Tujhe maloom hai tujhe aise bheegi se dekh kar mera emaan dol raha hai. He moved his hands on her back to let her know of his intent. She blinked at him shaking her head,"aapne emaan ko sambhaliye aur dimag lagaiye…maine aapke tarah koi extra kapadey pack nahi kiye the…abhi aap mujhe yahan kheech to laye hai…ab yahan se bahar nikal ke hotel kaise le jayenge wo sochiye.. kyunki mera mood  abhi bilkul romance ka nahi hai." Dutta's smirk vanished as he realized the meaning of her words- Damn! Gai bhais paani mein! Ab?

*********************************************************************************************

The wind chimes on the door tinkled heralding the entry of the last customers of the day for Edna Marie, the owner of the tourist boutique shop in the resort. She looked up from her accounting books and gasped at the entrants. A tall young man dressed in fashionable charcoal dinner jacket, blue shirt and trousers dragged in a mousey looking child by her wrist wrapped in resort's bathrobe twice her size. She looked like she was trying hard to keep her head above the folds of the robe. The man smiled hesitantly, "Err! Do you have some good evening dinner dresses? Something a little conservative." He looked pointedly at the tight tube dress in burgundy displayed on the mannequins. Edna looked at the girl again and realized she was not a child,really but a young woman. Observing the look on the sales woman's face dutta tried to clarify," My wife..err..she had an accident by the pool and we are to attend the resort's evening dinner in one hour. So.." He trailed away pleadingly. Edna nodded her head," Size?" Dutta quipped,"32..2! Aah! Arey nakku? Kapade khareedne ke liye size to batana padega na? Laat kyun maar rahi hai?" She glared him down and blinked at the woman,"Small size." As an afterthought, she hesitantly added pointing to the mannequin, " that size…maybe. Please!"

Edna nodded and turned to show them a few suitable dresses.An hour and 17 dresses later, dutta poked his head out of the trial room curtain, "actually do you have anything else?" Edna shook her head, "Sir, if you tell me what is wrong with the dress then maybe I can alter it." Dutta cleared his throat,"It's a bit short." Edna rushed towards the trial rooms, "Short? Impossible! It should be a respectable knee length dress….it's our customary shepherdess bridal dress." Dutta scratched his head,"yeah, well. She..we need something that covers her feet. No bare feet, you see." Edna nodded understanding the problem. She extended a box towards him, "This might help." He took the box and ducked back behind the curtains.

**********************************************************************************************

They watched the couples move in exhilarating steps of the traditional dance czardas. The men moved around the women slapping their boots and snapping their feet to the rhythm. The Hungarian wife of Dr.Regil, Bethany smiled at them," Lehet, hogy is lehetne a menyasszony es a volegeny, es ez az eskuvoi fogadas." Regil translated it to them,"She says, this might as well be your wedding reception as u both look like bride and groom." Dutta inclined his head in silent thanks. Bethany spoke again pointing at Nakkusha's dress," Ez az osi eskuvoi ruha csavarral.( This the our ancient wedding dress with a fashionable twist.) Only thing you need is...err.. Rescue a menyasszony(bride) custom." Nakusha looked at her in surprise,"Rescue the bride,matlab? Meaning?" Bethany told them about the old Hungarian custom of bride being kidnapped from her procession to the church for wedding by young men and then grooms going to her rescue and bringing her to church for wedding. Normally, groom's bachelor friends did it as a prank to get a bottle of merlot or vodka from him as ransom. Dutta laughed, "I did rescue my bride from a leech named Uday, if that counts."

The dance came to an end, Dutta whispered in nakkusha's ears,"Tu sach much bahut khubsurat lag rahi hai..I am so glad I dragged you into the water today." He looked at her with hooded eyes. The dress was a creamy white concoction with Brussels lace lining her darling neckline and flowing hem. The dress had a corset bodies which molded to her upper body and the dress flew in ease below the waist.  The baby puff sleeves and bodice and hemline were embroidered in fine Ularic embroidery of the renaissance period. Stockings held by garters and dainty pumps completed the understated look which could pass for a dignified evening dress up.

************************************************************************************************

They returned to their hotels late in the night. It had been a very exciting day for nakkusha and she felt to keyed up to go upto her room just then. She looked at the moonless sky and wished her siblings could see the sights she had seen today. The vast orchards ripe with ambrosia and succulent grapes, the lush green meadows as the train passed them, the enthralling churches with their huge domes and colored glass portraits and the hot springs. "Thodi deer garden mein tahal le, please" She looked up at Dutta. He nodded and placed her clod hand in his trousers' pocket and guided her towards the rose garden in the east of the hotel. Nakkusha hesitated before broaching the topic which had been disturbing her since morning,"Suniye, Wo rakshaji…Mera matlab hai..aapne kaha tha unki shaadi ho gayi hai, hai na?" Dutta nodded. Nakkusha continued,"To unke pati bhi unke saath yaha aaye hai kya?" Dutta shook his head,"Ab tujhe kya?" Nakkusha- kahiye na,please! Dutta- aaya hai. wo aadmi ko dekha hai jo parso ke event mein chief guest tha. Wahi hai. Costmetic surgeon hai. Nakkusha- Unke bacchey hai kya? Dutta curled his lips- Hmm…Haan ek ladka to hai..kuch teen saal ka hoga. Kyun? Nakkusha told him the event in the elevator and paused before saying- Wo mobile pe unke bte ki tasveer hogi hai na? Dutta looked down at the tips of his boots- Haan! Actually unka beta autistic hai. Nakkusha looked at him uncomprehending so dutta explained her, what it meant. She was teary eyed as he stopped explaining. Nakkusha whimpered- hey Kanhaji! Itna sa baccha! Bechari raksha ji!

Dutta – kahan ki bechaari yaar! She knew what she was getting into. IVF kiya tha…But it went wrong . Aur janti hai raksha is the kind of woman jisse galati bardasht nahi..she loves perfection. Koi bhi imperfect cheez sehan nahi usse..chahe aapna baccha hi kyun na ho. As far as I know, she shipped off the baby to some care taking house when he was just some 1 and 2 months old. She doesn't deserve anyone's sympathy. Nakkusha shook her head- nahi. Dekhiye, agar unhe apne bacchey se lagav nahi hota to suki tasveer liye nahi rehti. Maa kabhi apne bacchey ko ye soch kar janam nahi deti ki main isse tabhi doodh pillaungi jab ye perfect hoga. Maa to bas maa hoti hai. wo thodi na koi shart rakhti hai bacchon ke samne ki ye hoga to hi main usse godh mein lungi. Aur rakshanda ji jaisi maa to aur bhi khaas hoti hai. Kyunki Unke bachey bhi khaas hotey hai. Kya pata, jissey aap gairzimedaari samjh rahe hai..shayad wo unki majboori ho. Dutta sighed- I don't really care. Accha tu ek baat bata. Tune mujhe kaha tha ki tujhe meri ex se bahut jalan hogi…fir ab tujhe usse itni hamdardi kyun hai? Nakkusha- jalan to huyi thi jab paheli baar milli thi…par phir dimag thanda hotey hi dekha ki unki aankhon mein aapke liye kuch nahi hai..jaise aapki aankhon mein unke liye kuch nahi hai. Pata nahi unhone mujhe kaise pehchaan liya tha. Dutta- issmein kya hai! har koi har kissi ko jaanta hai. Aur waise bhi  tu meri biwi hai ye to usse kissi social event mein pata chal hi gaya hoga.

Nakkusha inclined her head- ho sakta hai. they spotted a bench near the palm grooves and made their way towards it. As she sat down nakkusha said in her childlike voice,"accha aap ye kyun keh rahe hai ki galati raksha ji ki hi hai..unke pati ki koi galati nahi ho sakti kya?" Dutta sat beside her and pulled his coat around her- jab wo dono milley the tab uska pati duniya ka best cosmetic surgeon tha aur lagbhag 47 saal ka tha. She was some 27-28. A rookie doctor. Ab wo love match tha ya nahi, I have serious doubt about it. She married him because he was at the top and he married her because she was young,intelligent and hot. I don't think any of them are selfless enough to be good parents specially not when the child needs them more than other children. Main ye nahi kehta ki galti bas raksha ki hai..dono hi galat hai.

Nakkusha- bahar se aandar jhaak kar kissi ke ghar ki aag ko dekhna aasaan hai…jalta to wahi hai jo andar ho. Kabhi kabhi hum logo ko ek saanchey mein dhal lete hai..dimag mein unki tasveer banna lete hai aur sochtey hai ki har insaan hamesha us tasveer jaisa hi rahega. Aap ke mann mein jo unki tasveer hai wo aaj bhi us jaisi hai iski kya garauntee? Kya aap bhi aaj waise hi hai jaise tab hua karte the, nahi na? phir?

Dutta- maan liya..ki wo badal gayi hai..maan liya ki shayad main galat hoon..par nakku, wo aapne bacchey ko kaise chod sakti hai. Uski dekbhaal  to uske ghar mein bhi ho sakti hai.

Nakkusha- shayad wo darr gayi ho? Jaise aapne usse hi zimedaar maana hai waise shayad wo bhi khud ko aapne bacchey ki gunahgaar samjhti ho? Sochti ho ki ab wo mujhse durr rahega to hi theek rahega shayad. Kala didi kabhi logon ke ghar godhbharai par nahi jaati…log bulaye to bhi nahi. Sabko lagta tha ki shayad aapne bacchey na hone keg ham se nahi jaati..par ek baar maine sunna tha unhe jiju se kehtey huye ki unhe darr lagta hai kahin bacchey aur uski maa ko unjaane mein bhi unki nazar lag gayi to? Andhviswaas hai na? itni padhi-likhi hone ke bavjood wo ye maanti hai. Aaj bhi. Maine us bacchey ki aankhon mein wahi dekha jo debbu ki aankhon mein hota tha..maa ki talaash. Sabse jayada debu ko chot pahuchi thi maa ki maut se..bas 3-4 saal ka hi to tha. Rakshaji ki aankhon mein bhi wahi suna pan hai jo kala didi ki aankhon mein tha. Phir jab unhone debu ko godh liya tab debu ki talash bhi khatam ho gayi aur unka sunapan bhi khatam ho gaya. Rakshanda jib hi aapne bachey ko godh lengi tab wo sunapan khatam ho jayega.

Dutta- Well, time will tell. Ab chale…Hum tum ek kamre mein band ho jaaye aur chabbi kho de? Hmm?

She smiled shyly and got up but then he saw her face falling in the darkness. Dutta asked worriedly,"Kya hua? Nakku?"

She sat down abruptly,"Mera mooja gir raha hai..wo rubberband aapni jagah se choot gaya hai."

Dutta looked at her confused,"Mooja? Rubberband? Matlab?" She wordlessly fixed her "Mooja and Rubberband " as his frown cleared watching her pulling up her stockings and garter in place. Dutta noded,"Of Course Moja aur rubberband."

He offered his arm once she was done. As they walked toward their room, they didn't notice the shadow that separated itself from the darkness of the huge birch trees and watched them go teary eyed.

************************************************************************************************

"Did he eat his dinner properly? Did he drink the water?" she gripped the phone tightly.

Listening to the voice on the other side she loosened her grip,"so you had to show him how to hold the spoon again?...yeah, I know it will take longer for him to learn it. Did he respond to other children taking his toys? No? but shouldn't he show even a flicker of emotion?...yeah, I know he is doing well for a child like him..but still…I will come to see him next week..yes, yes….i'll see if his father would come?" she kept down the phone and pressed her hand to her temples massaging it.

"Do you have to pretend everyday that you care?" a gruff voice called to her from doorway. Rakshanda didn't look up,"Do you have to drink like a dirty weasel everyday?"  Ned entered the room and lit the lamp on the side table," I drink because it hurts me." Rakshanda sneered,"And you think I doesn't hurt me?" Ned- Doesn't seem like it to me. She gave a dry laugh- right why should it hurt me…just because I carried him inside me for 8 months…or rather why should it not hurt me, Ned? Because I had a painless medicated C-section rather than natural pain. Why do you always speak as if I had wanted this to happen..or that I was responsible for it.
Ned looked away- Well, weren't you? Rakshanda smiled- of course I am responsible..but just as much as you. You were there too, Ned. Or did you forget? In fact you were in better position to present it than I ever was lying on that bed with my stomach open. Why didn't you do something? Why didn't you cut the cord? You are a damn doctor too.

Ned burst out,"Because I got scared, oK.  That was no stranger there..it was my baby..with his neck wrapped around his own umbilical cord…which was getting tighter around his neck like a damn noose. A few seconds…Oh God! For a few seconds!" He collapsed on the floor hiding his face on his rough palms. Three years, he could still see that day just as clearly. He had been unable to operate since then. Even small procedures making his hands go numb with pain and fear. "My baby…my child..he was my dream. My only hope and chance."

Rakshanda moved closer to him and held his hand- Why don't you see that he is my hope and dream too? My only chance, too. Ned smirked,"You are still young …if you leave me then you can have more kids with anyone younger. Do it. Why don't you do it? Leave me to my misery and live your life."

"Because despite the popular belief I didn't marry you to leave you. I married you because I respected you…and knew you respected me too. I thought that maybe you loved me a little too…as I did you. and you know the country where I come from marriages are not broken off like crockery." Rakshanda wiped her tears ,"But I do wonder now..if you married me because I was so perfect….and now you hate me because I have one biggest defect. I bore you a less than perfect baby." Ned vehemently shook his head,"No…No..Never that…raksha, never that..I did want you.. I do still care for you.."

Rakshanda smiled,"Yes , you do care..but just not enough to try one more time. Why is ned that sometimes a  complete stranger can see somethings which people who know you so well can't? Why did that chit of a girl see the emptiness in me and my own husband didn't? She knew it…she understood..and yet she doesn't even know me apart from being her husband's ex. I heard her , Ned. And for the frist time in my life I felt good that atleast someone understood me…but then I was sad that that someone was not you."

Rakshanda stood up and took a deep breath,"I am going back to see him tomorrow. I'll stay there for some days and see if he gets comfortable enough around me so that I can bring him home. I don't want him to hurt himself like last time because he was scared of me. " Ned looked up at her surprised, "But he needs trained help. We can't do it. Last time he was home he almost killed him by hitting his head to the wall like that. " Rakshanda bit her lip nervously,"yeah, but maybe now that he is three things can be manageable..and I can get a trained nurse or something..maybe I'll take some of the training classes." Ned nodded,"I'll book our tickets for tomorrow."

As he got up to leave he turned back to her and moved a wrinkled hand on her cheeks removing the tear marks,"You are right . Why does it take a complete stranger to show you that you have the special one in your life?"

As he left Rakshanda realized he said our tickets and not your ticket. Not every stranger Rakshanda thought, just that special one.

………….To be continued.

 

P.S: It was much later in that I realized that Mummum was tipped of about the Ice candies by the red or orange  lips and tongue. Rose and orange being my two favorite flavors I used to always zoom in on them and get a very red mouth or dark orange mouth. They kind of did all the chugli to Mummum about  my after school activities. But the eternal tube-light that I was, I never realized it till was a little more old. I sincerely believed the whole line about mummum having second pair of eyes. I once told my friend about it and she laughed on my face and enlightened me about the color of my mouth being the actual cuprit.
