Hey guys I just wrote a new OS on Ansh meeting with Bhago.I planned to write it almost very randomyly after last nite epi.So pls bear with the mistakes.
Backdrop of the
returning from anandi's home informs her about her mother's illness. Anandi is
left shocked to hear about her mother's state and expresses her will to meet
her as soon as possible. Dadisa and Bhairon with the intention of making her
ready for marriage, readily agree to take her to her home the very next day
only. Anandi reaches her home and is left shaken to see Bhagwati in the
Hope you all like my effort guys.
"aisa kyun kia aapne
ma?" anandi sighed as hot tears rolled down her cheeks.
"Kyun mujhe itna
paraya kar diya ki apne dard mein bhi shamil karna zaroori na samjha?? Kya ab
main aapki koi nahin lagti?Beti ko sasre bhej dia to us se saare rishte toot
"na lado!!ye kaisi
baat kare hai tu?Kya ek ma kabhi apni beti ko paraya kar sake hai bhala?"
"to phir mujhe kyun
nahin bataya ma? kyun nahin kaha ki lado mujhe teri zaroorat hai…mere paas
wapas aa ja…kyun aise akele dard sehti rahi??"
"lado teri ma hoon
main…tujhe kabhi dukh mein na dekh sakoon!…aur kya kismat ne tere liye kam dukh
chodo the jo main ek aur dard teri kismat se baandh deti"
"ye tum kaisi baatein
kar rahi ho ma?yaad hai jab bachpan mein main beemar padhti thi to tum kaise
raat raat bhar jaag kar mera dhyaan rakhti thi!Agar mata pita apne bachon ki
salamati ke liye…unki sehat ke liye saari saari raat jag sakte hain…to kya
bachon ko itna bhi haq nahin ki woh unki peedha mein unke saath rahe!"
Bhago had no answers
for Anandi's questions. Only she knew how she had spent all those years without
her in constant worry of her daughter's future. Bhago's throat gets choked
listening to anandi's words. She doesn't understand what to say and just hugs
anandi with a fit of a weep.
"mane maaf karde
lado..maaf karde apni ma ko..maaf karde tujhe apne aap se itna door rakhne ke
As bhago hugs her,
anandi feels an excruciating pain squash all her body parts into a million
pieces. Something seemed like exploding within her.
"tumne to mujhse
chupaya hi ma…par bapu? Unho ne bhi mujhe sach nai bataya!!Mujhe nai bataya ki
tumhari tabeyiat itni kharab hai"
about her father suddenly make bhago realize something and she breaks the hug.
"lado tere bapu thodi
der ke liye gaon se bahar gaye the…unhone kaha tha ki 2 baje tak aa jayenge. Par
ab to sham ke 5 baj gaye.ab tak aaye na woh"
Anandi is taken aback
by bhago's words. She felt a sense of worry bugging her.
"arrey samdhan sa
aapne pehle kyun na bataya. Bhairon pehle hi chala jata unhein dhoondhne"
Dadisa said to bhago
in a worried tone.
"aap chinta mat
keejiye…main abhi jaata hoon..bas aap mujhe bata deejiye ki khajan singh ji
kaunse gaon gaye hain" bhairon spoke in a go.
hai main abhi jata hoon..aap sab chinta mat keejiye" saying so bhairon moves out.
As soon as he opens the door he sees khajan singh standing in front of him. Bhairon
is shocked to see his state. Khajan singh had a bandage around his head and his
clothes were all stained with blood. Bhago, anandi and dadisa too are left
shocked to see him like this. Anandi runs to khajan singh and hugs him tightly.
"bapu aap theek to hain
na!!" anandi wept a heave a sigh.
"lado tu kab aayi? pata
hai tujhe dekhne ke liye mari aankhein taras gayi thi.Lagta tha jaise pata
nahin jeevan mein apni lado ko dobara dekh bhi paunga ya nahin"
"aisa mat kahiye
bapu…pls aisa mat kahiye" anandi said as a sob choked her throat.
Now Both Anandi and
khajan singh kept on weeping for the next few seconds until bhairon's word's
break the otherwise silent air in the room.
"par khajan singh ji
ye sab hua kaise?"
"lambi kahani hai
samdhi sa.Bas ye samajh leejiye agar aaj mata rani ne apne farishte ko na bheja
hota to main aap sabke saamne zinda na hota"
Anandi is shocked to
hear his words.
"kya?ye aap kya kah
rahe hain bapu?aur kis farishte ki baat kar rahe hain?"
said looking towards the door. Everyone look at the door and all are surprised
to see the person standing there. Its Shiv!
Anandi spoke as her jaw dropped.
Shiv too is equally
surprised to see anandi and the singh family there.
"Inhone hi maari jaan
bachai hai ado. Main to govindgarh se
laut raha tha par tabhi maine dekha ki ek mandir mein ek choti si ladki ka
bal-vivah ho raha tha. Yeh dekh kar mujhse raha na gaya.Isliye main bheetar
chala gaya us ladki ke ma bapu ko samjhane ki woh apni lado ke saath itna bada
anyay na karen. Par un logon ne meri ek na suni aur ulta mujhe par hi waar karne
lage. Tabhi pata nahin kahan se inhon ne aake mujhe un gundon se bacha liya. Mujhe
aspatal lekar gaye aur ghar tak bhi choda"
As khajan singh said
those words…Anandi felt all her anger and coldness towards Shiv melting away. Once
again he justified that whatever dadisa and bapusa said about him was nothing
wrong or exaggerated. It was all true. A drop of tear silently escaped anandi's
eye as she moved closer to Shiv.
"main nahin janti
collector sahib ki kitni baar main aapse ye kahungi…lekin ek baar phir bahut
bahut shukriya karna chahti hoon aapka. Agar aaj aap na hote to pata nahin mere
bapu ke saath kya ho jata! Thanyou collector sahib..thankuou so much" anandi spoke
with folded hands in front of Shiv. She couldn't think of any other way to
express her gratitude towards him.
Shiv moves his hands closer to hers to stop her from doing
this…but controls himself as soon as he realizes that he is about to touch her.
"Plss anandi ji aapko ye sab karne ki koi zaroorat nahin
hai.Maine kuch bhi nahin kiya.Maine to bas unka saath diya jo bina apni jaan ki
parwah kiye kisi aur ko ek galat kaam karne se rokne ja rah the" Shiv's words
filled dadisa's heart with pride as if she had proved to anandi's parents that
her choice for anandi is the best.
"Bahut bahut shukriya aapka shiv jo aapne khajan singh ji ko
itni badi museebat se bachaya" bhairon said to Shiv with gratefulness in his
"Pls bhairon singh ji mujhe aur sharminda mat keejiye…maine
aisa kuch nahin kiya."
"Par samdhisa aap
inhein jaante hain kya??"Khajan singh said in a trice to show off to anandi as
if he didn't know Shiv. Though he had already recognized him as the same man in
the photo but he showed off in front of anandi as if he didn't know him.
Bhairon, dadisa and bhago too understood his intentions and acted as if they
didn't know anything.
"haan khajan singh ji
ye hamare jetsar ke collector hain…Shivraj Shekhar ji…aur Shiv ye anandi ke
bapu hain khajan singh ji"as bhairon introduced them to each other Shiv moved
closer to khajan singh and touched his feet. Khajan singh blessed Shiv with a
mighty smile on his face.
Only then Shiv
notices bhago who had been keeping unwell and looked very sick.
"Shiv ye anandi ki ma
hain…bhagwati ji"bhairon did the introduction again.
As bhairon introduced
her to Shiv, Shiv moved closer to her and touched her feet and greated her with
"maaf kijiyega agar
mujhe pata hota ki aapki tabeyiat theek nahin to main yahan aakar aap sabko kabhi
pareshan naa karta"
"ye aap kaisi baat
karo collector sahib…aapne to hum par itna bada ehsaan kiyo hai.Dadisa ne
bataya ki kaise pehle bhi kai baar aapne mari lado ki jaan bachayi.Maafi to
humko aapse mangani chahiye ki humari wajah se aapko itni baar taqleef hui"
Shiv felt embarrassed
at bhagwati's words.
"Pls aap aisa mat
kahiye…maine kuch bhi nahin kiya.Jahan tak jaan bachane ki baat hai to maine
kisi ki jaan nahin bachai…maine to sahi aur sache logon ka saath diya.Aaj aapko
aur khajan singh ji ko dekhkar mujhe samajh mein aa gaya ki anandi ji aisi kyun
hain.Kaise woh itni nidar aur sahsi hain ki doosron ke liye bina apni jaan ki
parwah kiye itna kuch kar jati hain.Kyunki shayad unhein aap jaise mata-pita ki
parwarish mili hai…jo bina khud ke bare mein soche, galat ka virodh karte hain"
Hearing his sensible
and kind words bhago felt really good about shiv said. Internally she had understood
that only a humble, respectful and a good-hearted person can say like this.
Bhago had already started seeing Shiv as her future son-in-law.
"par shiv aap
govindgarh mein kaise…koi kaam tha kya?"bhairon asked Shiv.
"woh bhairon singh ji
actually govindgarh mein humara ek purana ghar aur farmhouse hai…usi ke silsile
mein kuch kaam tha"
"phir to aap thak
gaye honge…kuch der yahin ruk jaiye collector sahib. Hamare saath khaana kha
lijiye…hum sabko bahut achcha lagega" khajan singh requested shiv with a
different kind of love in his tone. He had already started seeing him like
"nahin nahin…plss aap
sab khaiye…mujhe ab nikalna chahiye.aap apna khayal rakhiyega"
"collector sahib ruk
jaiye na…agar aap rukenge to humein achcha lagega…aur agar aap bina kuch khaye
chale gaye to hameshan ke liye man mein ye baat rah jayegi ki humnein us insaan
ka bhi dhyaan na rakha jisne itni baar hamari madat ki" now bhago too requested
Shiv to stay for lunch.
"shiv beta ab anandi
ke ma-bapu itna kah rahe hain to ruk ja na"
"dadiji main zaroor
ruk jata par mujhe ghar par kuch kaam hai…mera jana bahut zaroori hai" Shiv
lied as he didn't want to bother anandi by constantly being around her.He
somewhere knew that Anandi didn't like him to be a part of his personal matters.
"collector sahib agar
aap rukenge to sabko achcha lagega"anandi said looking down as she saw shiv
turning towards the door.
This time Shiv
couldn't refuse. He stopped at the doorway and turned around. He had to stay. Everyone
felt relieved seeing that he changed his decision.
"anandi beta tu khana
laga main khajan singh ji ko bheetar lekar chalta hoon" bhairon said to anandi
and both of them left the room.
sahib" anandi welcomed Shiv towards the dining area.
Shiv nodded to
anandi. Though he still felt quite awkward agreeing for having lunch at
anandi's place but he couldn't refuse as well as everyone requested him so
As Shiv was about to
move, his arm slightly hit against the wall and he suddenly felt a stabbing
pain grip his entire arm and shoulder. Anandi turned around hearing his wince.
He stood at his place holding his arm in pain trying to analyze what happened.
chora?"dadisa turned to Shiv in a worried tone.
"kuch nahin dadiji
shayad woh un gundon se ladte hue haath mein sprain aa gaya hai…par aap chinta
mat keejiye main theek hoon"
Dadisa just wanted to
scold shiv for being so careless about himself. He went to the hospital but
didn't get his own injury treated! But she controlled her urge and tried to act
"acho to theek
hai…samdhan sa main haath mun dho leti hoon…anandi tu bhi aja chori, khana
paros de sabko" dadisa spoke instantly and left the room in a jiffy. She wanted
to leave no space for anandi for not attending to Shiv and asking someone else to
Now only bhago and
anandi were present in the room with Shiv. He felt really uncomfortable being
there like that. In order to avoid anandi's gaze he looked down at his wound
that had turned blackish-blue.
Anandi too noticed
his injury. And bhago noticed Anandi. Bhago could easily see a sense of genuine
concern flickering from anandi's eyes as anandi constantly kept on looking at Shiv
checking his wound. A lil smile touched bhago's lips seeing her daughter like that.
Finally anandi was moving on from jagiya…she was finally thinking about someone
"lado" bhago jerked
anandi slightly "tu jaakar madat karde na…lage ki gehri chot lagi hai…bahut
dard ho raha hoga"
understand what to do. She somewhere understood that her mom was right. Shiv
must be in pain and she ought to help him for what all he has done for her and
her family. And obviously her mom being unaware of the shaadi episode wasn't
saying all this bcoz she too looked for an excuse to bring her closer to Shiv
rather she really meant that Anandi should help him out.
Now even bhago acted
as if she has gone fast asleep and wasn't seeing them get close.
So anandi takes out
the first-air box from the cupboard and moves closer to Shiv. She felt really
uncomfortable saying all this.
"collector sahib main
madat kar deti hoon" anandi said trying to avoid eye-contact.
"its ok anandi ji
main khud kar lunga"
"aap nahin kar
payenge…left hand se kaise bandage baandhenge? Laiye main kar deti hoon"
Shiv didn't protest
much. Atleast he was relieved that her mother was asleep now.
Anandi softly moves
his arm towards her to get a better look of his wound trying to cause minimum
pain to him. She sees that a spot on his arm had become all blackish. It seemed
like a puncture wound that didn't cause any bleeding but had become blue-black.
Anandi took the balm from the first aid box and massaged the spot gently. Shiv
looked at her in sheer awe as if the pain didn't bother him any longer.
"abhi thoda sa jalega
par baad mein bilkul theek hojayega" anandi ensured him but he hardly
registered any words. He was all smitten seeing the care and concern in her
eyes, feeling the warmth of her touch and the tenderness of her tone.
After applying the
balm anandi carefully tied a clean crape bandage on his arm and gave him a
"thnks anandi ji"
Shiv spoke with sigh.
Anandi felt blood
rushing to her cheeks as the air felt really heated up. She was all alone with
him except for her mother who was fast asleep. Anandi quickly nodded to him and
walked out. Shiv too followed her only to be stopped by bhago who hadn't slept.
Shiv was taken aback.
"OMG anandi's mom
hadn't slept! She saw all that! Did she see me when anandi ji was doing that
massage. Oh gosh what would she think about me!!That I am such a flirt! U are
such a stupid fellow shivraj shekhar" Shiv cursed himself within realizing the
blunder he had made.
He slowly walked
towards bhago thinking what next question she might bombard him with!
"aapse ek baat
poochna chahti thi"bhago spoke in a shrill but firm tone.
Shiv's heart skipped
a few beats and cold sweat ran below his neck.
"jee poochiye na"
"dekho beta humse koi
baat chupi na hai.Majisa ne humein sab bata diyo ki kaise unhon ne aap se
hamari lado ke rishte ki baat ki aur aap taiyar bhi ho gaye.Aur sachi kahoon to
main aapki abhari hoon ki aapne mari chori ke liye itna socha.Par kya karun
chori ki ma hoon na…itni asaani se dil ko tasalli na de sakun. To socha ki ek
baar aapse baat kar loon"
As Shiv heard those
words his fear eased a bit. He had understood what she wanted to ask. Shiv felt
more confident and resolved towards his love for Anandi.
"aap jo bhi poochna
chahein mujhse pooch sakte hain"
"to theek hai…zyaada samay
na lungi aapka.Bas ye hi poochna chahun ki aap kahe byaah karna chaho mari
chori se.Aapko to na jane kitni achi, padhi likhi aur woh bhi kunwari ladkiyan
mil javengi.Mari lado se kahi zyaada achi.Phir aap usi se byaah kyun karna
Shiv heard bhago in
rapt attention absorbing each and every word and the emotions behind them. He
introspected himself for all those questions and came up with the most genuine
answers he got from his heart.
"main samajh sakta
hoon ki ek ma hone ke naate aap anandi ji ki kitni chinta karti hain.Aur
isiliye shayad aapko aisa lag raha hai ki main unse shaadi kyun karna chahunga
jabki mujhe koi aur ladki bhi mil sakti hai.Par sach to ye hai ki shayad anandi
ji se shaadi karna unki nahin meri khush kismati hogi.Kyunki anandi ji us har
ladki se alag hain jo shayad mujhse shaadi karna chahe.Kyunki anandi ji who
hain jinse main shaddi karna chahta hoon.Anandi ji woh hain jiska sapna maine
hamesha se dekha tha.Jaisa jeevan saathi maine hamesha se chaha tha.Ek aisi
ladki jise zindagi ne na jaane kitni thokarein di par uske ander jeene ka utsah
kabhi kam nahin hua.Jaane –anjaane mein unke parivaar aur samaj ne unhein ek
kuprata ka shikar hone par majboor kar diya par us parivar ke liye unka pyaar
aur samman kabhi kam nahin hua.Unhone apne dil mein kisi ke liye bhi zara si bhi
kadwahat nahin aane di.Agar koi bhi unki jagah hota to ab tak shayad bikhar
jata.Par anandi ji nahin bikhri.Woh aage badhi…aur akele nahin balki sabko
saath lekar badhi.Jise samaj ne itne dukh diye usne usi samaj ke liye aise aise
kaam kiye ki woh samaj chah kar bhi uska ehsaan nahin chukka sakta. Sach kahoon
to unke jaisi jeevan saathi paana mere liye garv ki baat hogi…kyunki anandi ji
itni sahasi hain ki shayad hi unhein kisi ke sahare ki zaroorat ho par mujhe
unhi ki jaisi saathi ki zaroorat hai…ek aisi saathi jo meri hark hush iaur
taqleef mein mera saath de sake…jiska saath main har lamhe mein dena
chahoon…jisko hamesha apne saath dekhna chahoon…apne aaj mein aur aane wale har
A silent tear escaped
bhago's eye as she heard those words. Though she knew that any guy could say
things like these but Shiv had a stirring genuineness in his eyes which no one
could deny. Bhago was finally convinced that anandi has found herself a true
companion and this time for a lifetime. So she lifted her hand and softly caressed
Shiv's face with blessings in her eyes.
