I cant Thank u all enough for the wonderful support u guys give me.
Today's scene is a bit serious… but nevertheless.. IMPORTANT so I decided to add it on.
After April Fool's trick, both Sumeet and Kumkum went to sleep with a smile on their faces. Suddenly in the midnight, Kumkum gets severe pain. Sumeet is sleeping peacefully, when her cries wakes him up. He is scared to hell seeing Kumkum in pain. He wakes up everyone and they rush her to the hospital. It is just 6-7th month of her pregnancy so delivery at this point is ruled out. Her condition is pretty serious… when the doctor calls Sumeet and explains the situation to him. They say the condition is pretty serious, and in extreme conditions they will be able to save only one, Kumkum or the kid. They give him a form he has to sign. Sumeet doesn't know what to do… it is obvious he has to save Kumkum. But that would mean Kumkum losing the only reason she is alive and the fact is the family is waiting for the baby as it is the Jatin's kid. All these thoughts weaken him for a moment, but when he realizes he doesn't have time. He picks up the form and signs it asking them to save Kumkum first.
After sometime, everything is fine. They have managed to save Kumkum and the kid and there was no need for a premature delivery. All are relieved and happy that Kumkum and the baby are fine.
After the come home, dadi tells Kumkum how tensed all of them were, especially Sumeet. She tells how traumatic it was for Sumeet when he was made to sign the form having to choose her or the baby and how he chose her life. Dadi feels very proud of Sumeet for living up to his responsibility. Kumkum is upset. Dadi tells her that it was Sumeet's faith that nothing will happen to both of u that won.
Later in the day when Sumeet comes, Kumkum gives him a letter. Sumeet asks her what it is. She says it is her consent letter. "Consent for what?" asks Sumeet. Kumkum tells him that she heard from dadi that he was made to sign the consent form and he had a tough time making a decision. The consent letter states that in case of any unfortunate circumstance if they are able to save only one of the lives then they should save the baby. Kumkum has signed that statement.
Sumeet cant believe Kumkum is talking like this. He tells her the letter is not required coz nothing of that sort will happen. And in case it happens he is there to take care of the situation and he knows what to do. Kumkum says he already has the family's and the business's responsibility on his shoulder she doesn't want to burden him with her problems so he should keep the letter. Kumkum leaves the room… Sumeet is hurt by Kumkum comments. Sumeet and Kumkum don't talk properly… Yeh Kumkum bhi na…
The next day Kumkum is searching for something in their room. Sumeet comes in and sees her searching so asks her what she is searching for and if he could help. "kuch nahi" Kumkum said and went back to searching. Sumeet glanced around the and found what Kumkum was searching for. It was her Mangal Sutr. Sumeet picks it "kahin ise tho nahi dund rahi ho?" Kumkum turns and see the mangal sutr in his hand. She nods her head and stretches out her hand for it. Sumeet looks at her and back at the mangal sutr and asks her why does she even care to wear it when it means nothing to her, she should break it. Kumkum is looking at him confused as to what he is meaning to say. Sumeet answers his question saying he knows she would never break it coz mangal sutr binds her to the family and her to the responsibilities towards the house. The way she does her best in living upto the responsibilities he is trying to do the same. He might not succeed all the time, but he will try his best. He makes her realize that she signing the consent letter doesn't end his responsibilities towards her and the baby. He makes her feel guilty for signing that in the 1st place and talking as if she and the baby are not his responsibility. He gives her the mangal sutr and tells her the decision is hers. Sumeet leaves and Kumkum wears the mangal sutr… indicating both of them are bound by destiny and that their lives are connected to eachother. (I don't remember what happened to the consent letter… not sure if Sumeet tore it or Kumkum)
I felt Kumkum was acting a bit weird by not understanding Sumeet…. And Sumeet for the 1st time I guess addressed Kumkum as his wife and took command as a husband.
That is it for the day.
Do let me know if u all liked it.
