Hindi reader can read the text in Black Italics, & non-hindi readers can go for text in dark pink.
Shashi sighed deeply...a tiny tear drop glistened in his eye. "humne tay kar liya hai..." - I've decided..."
He said getting up and walking towards his room...
Suddenly he halted in his tracks, par kya humara parivaar humare decision ko apnayega!? He wondered. "But will my family accept my decision?"
(the scene shifts to Devi maiyya's temple)
Bitiya...hum tumhara esaan kaise chukayenge !?- "Dear how will I ever be able to repay your favors?" ...sobbed an old women sitting on the stairs of the temple (there is only one temple in the city).
Betiyo ka ehsaan nahi chukaya jaata, unhe ashirwaad diya jaata hai...- "Mothers don't repay their daughters, they bless them" a girl sitting opposite her replied with a smile !
(She is sitting opposite to the old woman, therefore only her back is visible)
Aap ne bhog laga diya ? - "Have you offered the food to the Goddess?" the girl asked in her honey-licious voice.
Haan bitiya, chalo ab chalte hai!...-"Yes dear, let go now", the woman said getting up with the help of this young girl.
Both of them turned towards the temple, paid their respects and headed towards the parking lot. There was black SUV waiting there, as soon as they reached there a young charismatic boy came and greeted them with a warm smile.
Chaliye...time hogaya hai, "Let's go it's time", he said in a sweet tone which brought a cute smile on the girl's face.
The girl started "Thank you so much Raghav ji, aap nahi hote toh hum Kaki ko"..., "Thank you so much Raghav ji, without your help I couldn't have been able to help Auntie to", only to be interrupted by him.
Thank you ?? really! ab tum mujhe thanks kahogi?, "Thank you, Really? Now you'll THANK me?", he said with a cute smile, and they both giggled !
"Alright, I'll see you in an hour" - "Alright, I'll see you in an hour", he said to the girl standing near the SUV, before taking the driver's seat and tying the seat belt.
"Okay"..."Okay"...she said and turned to the woman seated in the back seat clutching the Devi maiyya's little idol close to her heart, which was gifted by the same girl who was NOW giving her the best gift in live !
"Kaki...apna khayal rakhna, aur haan aapne apke pote ke bare mein bataya tha naa...usse humara pyaar dena!" - "Take care Auntie...& yeah, you told me a lot about your grandson right, give him my love!", The girl said in a sad tune...
"Aap hume bhool toh nahi jayengi naa", "You will not forget me, will you?", the girl asked with fresh tears forming in her Doe-like eyes.
"Kya Maa kabhi apne bachho ko bhula sakti hai" - "Can a mother ever forget her children?", Kaki said hugging the girl.
"Chaliye...time horaha hai, aur haan tum time se pohonch jaana" - "Let us go now, It's getting late...& Yeah be there on time, okay" Raghav said flashing a sweet smile. The girl moved back, the door was closed and the SUV headed towards the main road. The girl stood there for a moment with a smile on her lips and a contented heart. She sighed, expressing her relief !
Suddenly she remembered that she had return home. The idea of returning home brought a frown to her sweet face, as she knew what kind of a welcome is awaiting her. Anyway, erasing all these thoughts from her mind she walked to the main road, waving her hand she called for a cab, addressed the driver and headed towards home.
Meanwhile, in the Gupta Villa :
Shashi kept pacing to and fro in his room, unable to make a firm decision. The contents of the letter kept flashing in front of his eyes, but whenever he thought of his two brothers it also reminded him of those fateful events which led him to part ways with his family...a family whom he worshiped, a family for which he was ready to give his life for.
He was unable to cope with the immense pressure these thoughts were putting on his mind, he went to the couch and seated himself, resting his head tilted backwards...breathing deeply.
Garima enters and watches her husband lost in thoughts, staring at the roof without blinking, she wasn't shock as she knew what was bothering him. She went near him and placed a comforting hand on his shoulder bringing him back from his deep sea of thoughts.
Garima...hum tay nahi kar paa rahe hai hume kya karna chahiye! - Garima I'm not able to decide what I'm supposed to do!", he said, worry evident in his eyes.
Dekhiye, waqt badal gaya hai...22 saal hogaye hain. Hume nahi lagta ke woh ab bhi naraaz honge - "Look, times have changed...22 years have passed. I don't think they'll be still angry", Garima said comforting him.
Nahi Garima, baat narazgi ki nahi hai, chinta hume iss baat ki hai ki kya woh hume phirse aapna payenge, kya humare rishtoh mein aayi yeh darrar bhar payegi ? - "No Garima, it's not about their anger, I'm worried because I'm not sure whether they'll accepts us or not. Can these broken relations ever be mended?", Shashi questioned her.
Garima's eyes welled up with tears, she couldn't answer him back as her voice was breaking due to the emotional pain. Suddenly they heard some kind of noises from the hall, they glanced at each other with confused eyes and headed towards the hall. They stood at the starting of the stairs, staring at the broken vase and the flowers, leaves and mud scattered on the fine white marble flooring.
Kaise batate...Pradeep Chacha ne unhe dhamki de thi ki agar woh kisko bataiyenge toh woh unke pote ki studies ke liye paise bhejna band kar denge...! Khushi replied in a sad tone.
"How could have we done that...Pradeep uncle threatened to stop sending the money for Janki auntie's grandson's studies, if she would tell it to anyone", Khushi replied in a sad tone.
Isiliye humne Raghav ji ki madat lekar unhe wapas Hindustan bhej diya, jaane se pehle woh Devi maiyya ko bhog laga kar unka ka dhaniyavad karna chahti thi, isiliye humne meethi puriya banaiye, jaldi jaldi mein kitchen saaf karna bhool gaye, aur woh humara room, hum kaki ko gift dena chahte thein isiliye hum devi maiyya ki woh murti dhoondh rahe thein, hume maaf kar dijiye ...Khushi said, awaiting her family's reaction.
"That's why I took Raghav ji help to send her back to India, before going she wanted to thank Devi maiyya by offering Bhog, that is why I made sweet pooris, I forgot to clean the kitchen in haste. & my room, I wanted to gift Devi maiyyas idol to Auntie, so I was searching it in my room, so I...Please forgive me". Khushi said, awaiting her family's reaction.
Shashi lowered his eyes as if thinking deeply, Garima walked over to Khushi and placed a loving hand on her head, smiled and hugged her.
I'm proud of you Khushi, "I'm proud of you Khushi", Garima said happiness evident in her voice. Shashi got up walked to Khushi and said, Well done bitiya, you ARE a Khushi not only in ours but everyone's life."Well done dear, you ARE a Khushi not only in ours but everyone's life". And then everyone got into a hug!
Suddenly they heard someone honking outside in the driveway...Aree, hum toh bhool hi gaye. Babuji hume college ke liye kuch books buy karne jaana hai, woh Raghav ji aaye hain ! hum jaaye ? Khushi asked !
"Hey devi maiyya, I forgot, Babuji I have to go to buy some books for college. Raghav ji has come, can I go?" Khushi asked !
Haan haan jao bitiya! - "Yes dear you can go!", Shashi said, "Aree Khushi, Raghav bitwa ko humari ore se shukriya keh dena" - "Khushi thank Raghav from our site", Garima said to Khushi who was now half running towards the grand door grabbing all her things.
Khushi is running ' Literally! She reaches the driveway, throws her things on the backseat and opens the door to seat herself when suddenly...suddenly she hears someone shouting "Maa", actually screaming, that painful voice is not something she is hearing for the first time...she heard it before too...!
'No'...she almost whispers, before shutting the door and running desperately towards the Villa, she reaches the enormous garden, and halts, her eyes welling up!
Her heart is racing, breath panting, hot tears streaming down her rosy cheeks, her eyes desperately searching for someone, "someone" whose voice she's been hearing for a while now!...she couldn't bear it, she fell on her knees as if experiencing the pain herself. She clenched the place near her heart as if to stop the pain, suddenly someone places a hand on her shoulder pulling her out of this "Condition".
"Khushi, kya hua tumhe? Are you alright...are you" -"Khushi, what happened? Are you alright' are you...", But before Raghav could complete she hugged him tight, tears streaming down.
Raghav ji, h'hh hume pp...ppphir se w'wwohh, "Raghav ji, I'I...hh'heardd...it aa'againn..."Khushi tried saying in between her sobs.
Sshhh...okay, easy...just relax Khushi, its okay! - "Sshhh...okay, easy...just relax Khushi, its okay!...", he said calming her. He knew very well what Khushi was going through, and he couldn't help her as he knew that if he let her parents know they would definitely panic, Panic is not the word...a lot more than that. Khushi was there world, but still she cannot laden her parents with worries, another reason was Payal's promise, which completely refrained him from exposing the truth. But now, now its over...he cannot see Khushi in sooo much pain !
Precap : What can I do...what can I do to get her out of this pain...and how. Asked Raghav in a painful voice to his Dad.
"look son, only if you believe...there is a spiritual person who might help Khushi, but its up to you, how you can support her !"...Rajvir Uncle replied!
