Driver did the same and left.
Vrindavan towers for a 10 storeyed building with each store having 2 deluxe flats situated side by side leaving a wide pathway infront which gives a clear view of sky with a beautfiul scenary due to the artificial lake present beside,. The lfit was located in between the two flats while steps were located at one end of the floor,. Radhika's family lives in 3rd floor in the flat no.301 which was located beside the steps.
Radhika started setting the pots and after completing it she settled them at different corners and positions in the path way. After that she hanged the diya lines she brought along with her in the path way, near the door and at different other places in the boundaries of their place and giving a sigh of satisfaction, took the oil and started to light them.
Then she got a phone and she attended it, talking to it only she was pouring oil in the diyas. When she was doing, there falled some drops on the floor near the steps. After that she completed pouring the oil in the diyas she kept the bottle there and continued to talk when she went towards the steps. she didn't notice that there were some drops falled there.
From the other flat there, a man came out wearing a black jeans with white trousers. He was surprised to see the good decoration out the adjacent flat and and was indeed admiring it. He then saw a girl talking in the phone. he can't see her face as she was turned to the other side. Dev then noticed that she was in a danger of slipping on the steps. He ran that side to prevent her from falling but by the time he went her leg slipped down ,.
Radhika who was talking on phone felt as falling down. She closed her eyes with fear, but then she felt two strong arms holding her one hand and other the shoulder, and dragged her towards him. She turned towards him in fear and closed her eyes in fear and digged her head into his chest holding her shirt tightly.
He was shocked with the girls reaction, but smiled realizing her situation. The anxiety in him was increasing to see her face. He said to her keeping his hand on her hair " Don't fear, nothing happened to u. Now open eyes"
Radhika opened her eyes and realizing what she was dong left his shirt in a sudden movement.
She felt like she know him, felt some unknown pain when she left him. Confused she lifted her head to see him.
He was also waiting to see her face, when he raised her head, he saw it with a very heavy hope. For a moment he was confused to see that face as he was getting same features in another face. Radhika was already shocked to see him, but was trying to hide it. Finally Dev figured out the face and was shocked to know it was she.
Dev yelled out in a gasp" Radhikaaa!"
Radhika thought in her mind "Haan Dev it was me, neither I expect to see u or meet u here in this way. I thought to never meet u or show u my face again, but my destiny was this. But sorry dev I am acting now infront of u '
Radhika said out :"Who r u? Do u know me"
Dev was completely confused to hear this from Radhika and he was abt to ask her when Chaya came out looking for Dev.
Chaya:"Tum yahaan ho, main tere liye kitne der se dekh rahi hun, mere liya aataa laana hain."
Chaya then looked at Radhika who stood there lost.
Chaya:Radhika tum aagaya
Radhika:Excuse me, sorry to ask but aunty how u know my name
Chaya:Vo, actually My hun Chaya, kal tumse baat kiya.
Radhika:Oh aunty aap, sorry I never saw u na so didn't recognize.
Chaya:Koi baat nahi. chal Shanthi aur auntyji bahar gaya tha, tum humari ghar aavo na.
Dev:Radhika aavo na
Radhika looked at Dev, who was still in that confusion.
Chaaya:Radhika ye mera beta hain Dev.
Radhika had one more shock . in her mind ' what Dev mere paas wali flat mein. Kanhaaa ye confusion kya hain. aap mere destiny mein kya socha tha"
Chaaya looked at Radhika and asked "Kya soch rahi ho"
Radhika:Nahi aunty main aavungi but aap pehle mujhe ek match box de sakthi ho, muhe thoda sa kaam hain
Chaaya:Haan lekin Match box????????
Dev sighed to Chaaya showing diyas. Chaaya then only saw them and really liked the way she decorated " Radhika bahut aci tarah sajaya, lekin aaj kuch bhi festival nahi hain na"
Radhika:Aunty ji mein har din aise hi diya ye jalati hun
Chaaya was really mesmerised by the answer, she looked at Radhika i wonder and said "Jab aunty ji ne muhe tere baarein mein bola, I didn't believe, but u were really in the wa she said . Aaj kal ke din tere jaise ladkiyan bahut kam hote hain."
Dev was still standing there with some confusion of getting unrecognized by Radhika.
Radhika started lighting diyas and Chaaya stood with her, while Dev went out to bring what his mom asked him for.
Radhika was trying to find a reason from going to that house, and as god listen to her prayers, by the time she complete her work, Shanthi and ammaji came home
Radhika tok leave from Chaaya and went into her room as soon as Shanthi opened the lock, an closed it behind.Shanthi sighed seeing her behavior and said to Chaaya "Please don't mind her, she some times behave like that only. I think she's angry on me, but tomorrow she will be normal again. "
Dev who came back went to Radhikas flat for Chaaya and taking the freedom he went in as he now abt Shanthi.
Chaaya left to make aata and Dev asked Shanthi to sit for carroms. They both started playing as they do in evenings from one week.
Dev:"Aunty ek baat poocho."
Dev:Is Radhika was normal?????
Shanthi looked at him and said "Why ?"
Dev:If ever she was normal she would have recognised me na, U know na, I was the same Dev who was his class mate. But she didn't recognise me.
Shanthi:Haan vo 1 saal pehle jab vuski eye operation ho raha tha, tab vusko kuch nerves ka hi operation karna pada, tab doc ne ye bola ki, she will forget the unimporatnt things partially for some time. and In that way only she didn't remember u. not only she finds it difficult to remember most of her +2 class mates.
Inside the room...
Radhika was on her bed remembering the words of Shanthi that mornign in the phone.
"Radhu, as u come u may find some surprise, lets see wether u recogise or not."
Radhika was saying to her self"Chachi, it wasn't a surprise for me, I doesn't wanna meet him. Indeed he doesn't like it. Why kanha why this happened. what does it mean for. again are u thinking to hurt me. Kanha now what to do."
