Sandhya was sitting besides her window after having great time with her parents at the dinner table. She had nothing to do so she sat near the window looking at the sky. Her hair was blowing up by the wind and the Moon's light was reflecting on her face and it looked like as if two beautiful moons of the universe were looking at each other and praising eachother's grace.
Sandhya was feeling excited about tomorrow morning as her father is going to drop her to Anu's house for the wedding which is going to be placed in 3 days. She had already packed her suitcase and had thanked her mother for thousand times for the beautiful lehnga choli she had bought for her for the wedding. Kanchan didn't want Sandhya to wear her old dresses on the wedding so she had personally gone to the market and bought a beautiful lehnga choli for her daughter in the evening.
Sandhya was imaging the wedding as what would she do there? what would she eat? how would she dance with Anu with mehndi on her hands? Her imagination was actually surprising her a bit because she had never been so interested and excited about MARRIAGE. She always stayed away from this crowdy auspicious event and has focused on her books her whole life. But this time, it was different. The marriage was kind of alluring her towards it. She wondered what was making her smile so much.
She got up from there and went to set the alarm clock. She put the alarm at 5 o'clock because she feared what if she gets late in the morning. Then she decided to extend the alarm time till 7 o'clock because she didn't want her parents to look at her and wonder what is wrong with their book worm daughter that she is super excited for a marriage. Sandhya laid on her bed and turned the lights off but kept looking at the roof till her eyes' rods were taking over the cones and she could trace the designs on the surface of the fan above her. After few minutes, she was dozzing off and she went into deep sleep, ready for the next day.
Here on the other side, the diya of the story, Sooraj had finally finished his tasks and had went to his dim-lighted room. He changed his clothes and went straight to his bed to sleep. But something was making him not go to sleep. He was tired of preparing for his younger brother Vikram's marriage all day and his tiredness was no doubt visible on his face. He wanted to sleep. He wanted to give rest to his body so that he would be ready to help his family tomorrow for the wedding preparations but he couldn't sleep. He twisted a little and noticed the moon outside the window. He thought in his mind that one day, one day, he will have his moon in his hands too, in his arms, with him, around him, forever and ever. He kept looking at the moon and kept imagining his life with his moon and soon closed his eyes and went to sleep, smiling at the corner of his lips.
Next day was a big day for Sandhya. She woke up at 7:30 and cursed herself under her breath for being 30 minutes late. She took a warm bath and wore her green and purple chooridaar suit which had decided to wear yesterday. She dried her hair and wore beautiful chooriyan which were tickling her warm skin. She put on earrings and set her hair into a beautiful hair style and finally put eyeliner on with a cute smile on her face. She got up, looked at herself in the mirror and felt something was missing. Ofcourse, her baby pink lipgloss. Sandhya went outside and looked at her dad who was still yawning. She asked him to get ready soon as she needs to leave in about half an hour. Mohan smiled at his daughter and thought that she has grown up now. Kanchan served Sandhya and Mohan with delicious aaloo ka paranthas and teased Sandhya for looking so sweet.
Sandhya took blessings of her mom with her suitcase in her hand and a black leather purse on her shoulders and reminder her to come at the wedding on time. She sat besides her dad in the golden color Camry and started looking at her cell phone for the time. Mohan laughed silently looking at his daughter and they started off. Sandhya asked her dad to buy some sweets on their way as it doesnt look good going bare handed. Mohan bought Kaju ki barfi and gulaabjamun for Anu's family and they soon reached their destination. Sandhya thanked her dad and said Bye to him carrying all the stuff by herself. She walked up to the main gate and walked in the house founding the door open. She was rushing towards Anu who was talking to a lady at the end of the hall and accidentally bumped into someone and had almost hit the ground but someone hold her and the sweets and saved both of them from falling on the ground. Sandhya closed her eyes and screamed out loud but went numb when she opened her eyes and saw a young man holding her and looking deep into her eyes.
Preview - She could not stop thinking about him, his smile, his eyes, his gestures, his voice. She was so lost in her imagination that she accidentally cut her finger while cutting the fruits for Anu's sister Meenakshi.
Here you go my readers..
So finally you came to know that Vikram is getting married to Anu's older sister Meenakshi and you probably would have guessed who is the person holding our halki-fulki Sandhya.
So my FF is a little different than the real plot of DABH and hopefully you will like it..
