REALIZATION OF LOVE"So ready to make an appearance Nivi?" asked Tani while doing final touch ups of her make up.
"Are you sure Tani? I mean we both look quite similar." came Nivi's nervous reply.
that's because I bought similar sarees for you and me, yaar." Tani
rolled her eyes and walked up to the place where Nivi was checking out
her reflection. She stood behind her and glanced at their reflection.
They both were wearing bengali silk saree which was white with huge red
border, golden embroidery done on it. To perfect the look, Tani helped
Nivi in draping the saree in bengali style like her.
To top it all,
Tani made Nivi wear a simple gold necklace with exquisite design paired
with golden jhumkas and golden bangles. Nivi's hairs were left open with
soft curls at the end. A small red bindi was adorning her forehead,
sindoor adoring her hair parting. In all, she looked very, very
As they made a quite late entry in the launch party
going downstairs, many heads turned towards them but they were lost in
talking and laughing on something oblivious to the eyes appreciating
their beauty. Nivi was busy in laughing when she turned her head and the
sight in front of her made her stop laughing.
She narrowed her eyes
and looked at the dance floor where Viren was dancing with some other
girl, the girl clinging to him unnecessarily. Viren looked highly
uncomfortable but kept dancing with the girl. Bunching the pallu of her
saree in her fists, she walked up to them to see the girl lost in
looking at Viren where Viren was avoiding looking at the girl. When
Viren heard the soft tinkling of the golden anklets that Nivi wore for
the party, he looked up to see his wife, looking ethereal, heavenly
beautiful. He always debated when Nivi looked the most beautiful, but
whenever he saw her in some other attire it made him contradict all
assumptions he made in his mind.
His train of self thoughts which
was busy in appreciating the beauty of his wife was broke with Nivi's
sharp voice "Excuse me Can I dance with him?"
The girl who was dancing with Viren, glanced at Nivi and replied with mirth "No I asked him first."
hello, it doesn't matter whether you asked him first or not. He is my
husband, now get away from him." Nivi raised her voice.
looking terrified, muttered an inaudible sorry before running away from
there. Nivi stared at extremely relieved Viren who was smiling at her,
before turning away from him. She was about to go when Viren caught her
hand which made her stop but she didn't turned towards him.
"Dance ?" Viren asked uncertainly.
thank you. Get some other hot girl. Your wife is too innocent to your
liking." came Nivi's rude reply. She freed her hand from his grip and
walked off. Viren smirked at his angry cum jealous wife. He knew she was
too much upset with him but he perfectly how to make her happy. Along
with the preparations of the party, he was preparing a surprise for his
wife which he planned months ago. He deliberately made her feel that he
was too busy in his work.
He was wearing a crisp shirt and black jeans. He chose today as the perfect day to wear the blue blazer that Nivi gifted him. Running his hand at the blazer to feel Nivi, he glanced at his watch. Only five
minutes left, he thought while looking at Nivi who was standing with
Vandana Taiji and some other ladies, listening to their conversation
with a sad smile on her lips. How much his heart pained to see her like
walked away from there still staring at Nivi. When he was gone, Nivi
looked around for him, trying to find him but he was nowhere to be seen.
darkness engulfed the crowd, making everyone stop talking and look
around only if they can see anything in darkness. Everyone felt curious
to see what led to power failure and a faint murmur filled the silent
Nivi walked towards the main electricity board, sensing
her way to see what was the problem. She barely reached to the center of
the hall when a flash light flashed focusing on a person standing at
the top of the stairs heading to upstairs. Another flash light focused
on Nivi, making her flatter her eyelashes continuously to adjust to the
sudden bright light.
As the person looked up, Nivi was astonished
to see it was Viren, an earphone stuck to his left ear. His eyes
focused on Nivi, his lips curved in a smile, smiling at her.
Nivi was wondering what Viren was trying to do when finally she heard his voice, to her astonishment singing a song
Tum ho to gata hai dil
Tum nahi to geet kahaan
Tum ho to hai sab hansil
Tum nahi to kya hai yahan
Tum ho to hai sapno ke jaisa hasin ek sama
He walked downstairs, staring at Nivi flashlight moving along with
him. He walked up to Nivi, gazing at her while moving around her in a
circle, singing the song. The emotions going on his face reflecting the
truth of the words he was singing, people watching them in pin drop
silence while Nivi barely managed to smile at him, her heart jumping
with joy to hear Viren singing for her.
Jo tum ho to
Yeh lagta hai
Ki mil gayi har khushi
Jo tum na ho
Yeh lagta hai
Ki har khushi main hai kami
Tum ko hai mangti
With the last word, he knelt down in front of Nivi
keeping his head down in front of her earning collective gasps from the
crowd watching them.
He looked up to see a stunned Nivi, waiting for
him to speak him. Not failing her expectations, Viren at last spoke in a
sweet and low voice "Nivedita When I married you, I never had any
expectations that you will ever love me back like I always loved you.
But you proved me wrong, you loved me more than I ever loved you
devoting each and every special moment of your life to me, making me
feel loved, making me feel blessed to have you as my wife.
felt alone, you were there beside me to tell me that I am not alone.
Whenever I had any doubts on our relationship, you scolded me, you
yelled at me to prove again and again that you belong to me only. I just wanted you and only you in my life.
know every girl have some dreams regarding their marriage but I broke
all your dreams. So on the day on our first marriage anniversary, I want
to fulfill your dreams. Nivedita, will you marry me once again with all
rituals? Will you marry me once again with the sole aim of being by my
side throughout our life?"
Viren waited for her answer with bated
breath. He knew that she will say yes, but the excitement was bubbling
inside him to hear her yes.
Never in her dreams, Nivedita imagined
Viren doing all this on their first marriage anniversary. She felt
heaven after hearing what he said. Words failed to come out of her
mouth, making Viren nervous with the passing time.
After what felt like ages, Viren heard Nivedita saying with blank expressions on her face"Get up Viren."
he stood up, he looked at her nervously, not understanding what's going
on in her mind. As Nivi ran towards him threw her arms around his neck,
Viren stumbled a bit took a few steps to steady himself. Instinctively
he wrapped his arms around her, holding her tight, not letting her go.
Nivedita shrieked in his ears "OF COURSE YES VIREN !!!"
hearts started jumping with joy like the time when they realized their
love for each other, making them laugh at each other crazily, their
foreheads and nose touching each other. Finally they were able to
achieve the comfort level of their relationship.
As rose petals
showered on them, Viren and Nivi looked around with teary eyes to see
everyone clapping for them. Their gaze stopped at Tani and Anurag standing together, laughing with tears in their eyes. Viren brought his hand forward, caressing
Nivi's cheeks delicately with love. When Nivi finally looked up at him,
he swooped down to capture her rosy lips in a passionate kiss not caring
about anything else. After resisting a bit, Nivi too gave in kissing
him back trying to pour all her love in this single kiss, locking her
hand around Viren's neck as Viren's arms circled her waist. Their tears
mingling, their lips caressing each other, they finally felt peace and
happy to realize their love in their heart. The happiness that their love gave them was over whelming.
