Happy Holi to all of you !
D is relieved to know as soon as the gate keeper says that DK is not at
home....But slowly the disappointment seeps in...She just doesnt
understand herself as to why she was feeling like that...
She enters the home looking for Sumitra maa...She sees a servant there
and even before she opens her mouth, the maid comes over to her and
wishes her as if she had known her forever...D is a little surprised
and tells the maid why she was here....Maid tells D that she knows that
she would be here today and her saabji has already told everybody there
that a special person was going to come today....D repeats to herself
Maid leads her to the first floor into sumitraa maa's room....Disha
almost jumps up with joy looking at a very healthy sumitraa maa doing
some knitting sitting in her rocking chair....As soon as D
entered Sumitraa maa lifts her head and a broad smile flashes on her
Sumitra: Hi Disha beti...how are you doing?
D: very hesitantly....Mummyjiiiii.....Actually...I'm here...
Sumitra:Yeah I know that you were going to come today to see me...Dushyant
told me about that...In fact he was also waiting for you till now, but
had to go as he had a very imp meeting...He said he will talk to you
D: ha that's ok mummyji...How are you doing?
S: Yeah I'm doing great as you can see...Thanks for everything that you have done for me and my son when I was not well...
D: So you know me ?
S: Not much...But I know that you make a very important person in my
son's life....I hear your name taken by him atleast once a day...of
course I did not know that it was a beautiful lady....In fact only
today he told me that a person called Disha was coming...when I prodded
further, he told me that Disha is the person who helped us in our most
D: confused..."Er,forgive me but I'm not understanding what you are trying to say"
S:You will understand everything...I will take you somewhere today,
then you will understand everything...But you have to sit here for
sometime as I have my morning pooja to do...In the meanwhile you can go
around and see the house...
S:BTW why do you call mummyji? and I dont know why...but I like it...SO
whatever it is just keep calling me like that only...smiles...
So Sumitraa maa goes into her pooja mandir and D is left there all
alone...she goes around and suddenly comes accross DK's room...She very
hesitantly enter's his room...She remembers the nights seen in the his
bedroom when he actually conffessed his love to her....She feels sad
thinking about all that...Overcome by emotions, she just finds herself
a seat there infront of a table...Casually she opens a book that is
there and gets stunned to see their wedding pictures(dont ask me who
clicked those pictures...literary liberties you see) there inside that
book....and some more pictures of her...
She gets curious now and opens the book...Its actually DK's
dairy...After going through the whole dairy she knows how much DK still
loves her...And also she understands the reason why he had to
leave...She cant help cursing herself for not making it clear to him
that there was nothing between her and Vedant and also she never really
believed that DK can do such a thing to his own brother in porineeta's
Reading the last paragraph in the diary made her cry:
"Disha today I saw you after so many years...You are still the same and
to me you will never change...No matter how much you have changed
yourself from the time I first met you...Disha you dont know what you
mean to me and how you have changed my life....And you are my wife
Disha...I know its not a right thing to think like that, but I cant
help it....I may not mean anything to you, but you are my
everything...I wish I had the vocabulary to express the same in words
to you...Somehow I was never able to come up with enough words for you
to understand my inner feelings...And whatever I was able to manage,
made you only misunderstand me further...I know I will never be able to
win your trust and for that I have only myself to blame....And also I
know that I have no place in your lifelet alone the heart..I can live
with your memories but I ask God to atleast give you to me in my next
Disha gets up from there...She knows what she has to do now...She wipes
her tears and a mischevious smile flashes on her face and she goes out
of the room looking determined...
By then Sumitra maa completes her pooja and tell Disha that she wants to take her somewhere....
So they both head out and Disha has this puzzled look on her
face...Sumitraa maa did not tell her as to where she was taking her....
On the way they talk some more and Disha feels very happy seeing Sumitraa maa hale and hearty...
The car stops in front of a big compound...And looking at the name of that place, Disha is stunned....
it says : TUMHARI DISHA
S looks at D with a smile and tells her" this is how I knew your
name...All these years when Dushyant was taking this name so fondly I
thought may be because of this ashram...but now I know he likes this
ashram because he named it after you...Ok lets go in Disha...Let me
show you the various wings here...Oh no...Its too big for me to
she calls one middle aged lady Savitri and asks her to take Disha around...
Disha is totally spell bound after she is done with seeing the whole
place...Everywhere she went she heard only one name...DK DK DK....some
call him DK beta, some call him DK sir, some call him DK uncle so on
and so forth but everybody has that love and affection ingrained in
their voices when taking his name,....She just loved the place...It has
a super speciality hospital, old age home, child
center,school,library,play ground and also a Temple....
Disha is verymuch impressed with the whole thing....She has tears in
her eyes thinking how far away DK has come f from his own previous
self...she feels proud of him...Her love and respect for him reach
unseen heights...She also blushes thinking about the name of that whole
place....She feels happy that DK has still the same feelings for her...
Sumitraa and Disha come back home and by the time they were there DK is
already home and is waiting for them...He did not like it that his mom
took Disha there...He thinks that now Disha will think that he was
trying to show off all this...Left to him, he would have never taken
Ok guys will get back to you once again.,.Till then i hope you all enjoy reading this...Let me have your feed back please...
