started placing the Towel in the Bathroom and she could still see that
her father was all asleep.. What had happened to him? He was never so
once sentence from his daughter at the morning was enough for him to
open his eyes and see her.. Was he all right??? Was he ill?? The
slightest thoughts about the ill health of her father troubled her. He
was her father cum best friend. She shared everything with him, right
from the list of guys who had proposed her when she was in College. Even
her father made sure he shared every possible Happiness and worries
with her without fail. Then if he wasnt feeling well then why didn't he
wake her up before?? She would have treated him.. She rushed to the bed
and touched her fathers forehead to check if he had fever.. And there
she skipped one beat of hers.. Her dad was all cold and hard.. She didnt
understand what was wrong.. All ill thoughts were haunting her mind but
then she tried to avoid all that and the immediately started rubbing
her fathers Palm. She started shaking him asking him to wake up from his
Khushi : "Dad.. Come on Get up.. You are all cold.. I will call the doctor now.. Everything will be alright..Ok? Wait.."
She rushed to the phone and dialled the doctors number..
: "Dr Sinha.. THis is Khushi Gupta.. Can you please come to our house..
Dad is not well. He is not opening his eyes.. I mean he is all Cold.. I
am scared Dr.. Please.. Help me.."
Doctor tried to calm her on the phone assuring her that he would be
coming there in next 30 minutes.. She cut the call and then again sat on
the bed trying her best to make her dad warm by rubbing his hand.. She
somewhere felt that this was not normal. It wasn't a normal sign to feel
her father so cold. But she still continued her task with her teary
eyes. She had no one else to assist her.. The father and daughter had
always a reserved life here.. They never needed anyone else to complete
their family.. The two were enough for each other.. But today she wasnt
getting the feeling of having someone with her.. She felt she is all
alone.. And that only thought made her scream towards her father's body
again and again asking him to wake up as she is now really scared of
what had happened to him..
Doctor arrived in few minutes and checked Mr Shashi Gupta.. He checked his
pulse and the with a sad face he looked at Khushi and replied..
Dr: "Sorry Miss Gupta.. He is no more".
sentence as if killed her from inside.. She was not willing to agree to
this fact.. This cannot be possible.. Just yesterday night she had
talked to her father till late night and had fun gossiping about their
new client.. He looked so well last night then how could he DIE?? DIE??
Her father was DEAD?? No..
fell down on the ground and started crying badly.. She had no one to
comfort her.. She had no one to make her understand this is what had to
happen one day.. She had no one beside her except her Dad's Dead Body..
Same Day - Delhi - Raizada House
3 year old Pari was sitting besides her mom Anjali who was spreading butter on a piece of brown bread,for the breakfast of her .
Shyam her beloved hubby was sitting besides them reading a newspaper.
Nani is sitting at the head of the table like a king sitting proudly on his throne. she was munching her favorite Aloo poori.
the smallest Raizada- "young lad" of 24 years came in the dining
area,with ear plugs in his ears,and i-pod in his hands..he was walking
to his seat, his hands moving to the music,with his lips syncing the
lyrics.Pari got excited to see Dhruv coming and sitting opposite to her
chair and screamed..
Pari- squealed "mamu". . (with a big smile on her face..).
Dhruv- hey angel,whats up? he bent a little to give a cool close fist punch on Pari's small closed hand..
Manorama , a lady in her sweet late 40s - with her eloquent walking
style enters and waves her hand saying "Hello Hi bye bye"...
"Mom, I heard you had gone to see 'Salmaan Khan's-Ready' movie,and then
when did you come back? You didnt even tell me the story ?"
Manorama looked at nani and others with embarrassment and faked a smile.
: "Dhru bitwa.. I saw you in the theater with your latest battalion of
girl friends then why ask me the story? Hello Hi bye bye."
of them laughs at Dhruv's blush and thats when the earlier mentioned
"Lion"aka "Chote"aka "Arnav Singh Raizada" aka "ASR " made his entry to the breakfast table.
pervaded through out the house as if you could hear even the sound of a
dropping needle. Pari runs over to him and hugs him.
Pari: "Maamu.. I need snickers that too a big packet when u return from office. Okay?"
kissed her forehead and smiled back at her..She was the only one
person who could talk to him without any fear and who could bring out
smile easily on his face. He loved his family more than anything but he was
not that type who would show off his love and affection in "public".He
supported and loved his brothers Akash and Dhruv though they are his
cousins and considered his sister Anjali as his own mother. He was
supported by his nani,mama and mami when his parents left them alone in
this world.Usually his anger's main victim target was their maid servant
Hari Prakash and HP would make sure that he hardly makes any appearance when Arnav is near the
Arnav: "I will baby.. But promise me you will do your home work on time and wont trouble Mumma.. Ok?"
Pari smiled and ran from there to her Daddy..
"Dhruv.. I hope you would be coming to AR Office today. Be sure you
arent late. I want you to start learning things there.. I want to see
you Working in next one month.. Got that?"
Dhruv gaining his confidence :"Bhai.. Is there anything you say I deny? Ofcourse not.. Dont worry Bro.. I would come.. "
Arnav: "Better.. "
left the house .. Mohan (His driver) took the Laptop bag from him and
then kept it in the Car. Arnav sat at the back seat and the Driver drove
it to AR Office.
whole family let a sigh of relief as they were worried about his
upcoming blast on Anjali's success for her attempt to search a "Bride
for her chotte"..
But all of them looked dumbfounded to see him smile and the "boiler less face" today. Something was surely wrong they thought.
Arnav Singh Raizada wasnt feeling good.. He could feel someone needs
him today. Someone who is close to him but yet far.. He wasnt
understanding what was wrong with him. What mattered to him the most was
his Family and he had seen them in the morning.. Everyone were safe and
sound and Happy too.. Then why was he still feeling someone close to
him was in pain.. He tried to wash these thoughts from his mind and
concentrate on his work..
