"Beta is it true'.? You
Mayank looked at his mother. Her face wrinkled with
age had a tinge of sadness, with a little hope that her chote would be fine. A
woman of 65, Devyani was very healthy and active, always bustling around the
house, ordering servants, pampering her grandsons and her bahu. He felt proud
of his mother who unlike other mother in laws always stood by his wife not even
allowing him to say any word against her'. Such was her love for her bahu
pained to see his ever smiling mother looking at him with bated breathe to hear
his reply. He always knew that his mother felt incompleteness without her
youngest son chote as she called shashi. He replied to the poor soul'.
"Ji amma. I met him in the function hall when I went
to attend Mr. Amar Singhania's reception. He too had come. But I didn't see his
family. They are settled in Delhi and he just came to lucknow to attend the
reception," Mayank paused.
"how is he beta'? Is he well settled..?"
"Haan amma.. He is fine and owns a Fashion school and
recently opened a Fashion house for his daughter, about an year ago. He has 3
daughters. I have invited them over here for the vacation. It would be nice for
these boys to have company. I also thought of inviting Aanchal and her
children. What do you say amma?"
Mayank waited for his amma, Devyani Gupta to accept
the fact and express herself, but she said nothing whilst Manorama spoke.
"Ji, did you say my devar ji has 3 daughters? Hey devi
maiyya'!!! Saasuma at last I will have 3 daughters. You will have 3
granddaughters. Now I can go for jewellery shopping to gift them. Oh I can
select nice different dresses for them'." dreamed Manorama.
"Yes Mano, we can have fun. We all can go shopping and
spend much time together. Oh!!! how I missed my chotey aur choti bahu'"
With that devyani trailed back into the thoughts of
23 years ago, one fine morning as Devyani was
distributing Prasad to everyone and Manorama preparing breakfast for everyone,
Jai prakash came running to them.
"Maa ji, chotey bhaiyya''.."
Before he could finish'..
"kya hua hamare devar ji ko'.?" Mano asked him.
"bhabhi ji woh' woh chote bhaiyya bhabhi ke saath
dwaar par khade hai'"
Hearing him Devyani got rooted to her place. Manorama
ordered JP to bring kalash with rice while she was preparing aarti thaal to
welcome the newlywed couple home. All the while Devyani stared at her younger
son Shashank and his beautiful bride. Manorama came to her and shook her out of
trance and directed towards the entrance. As they were performing the aarti,
they heard a roar'
"How dare you welcome these two Devyani?"screamed
"but baabuji, after all devar ji has come with my
devrani. How can I not welcome them?"
"will you just shut up Manorama' you don't consider
yourself as jethani. You can't even bear the heir to the family, and your
husband is not listening to my words of getting married again. What black magic
have you done to him? And now there is another girl snatching away my second
son from me, how do you people manage to trap rich youngsters?"
"Enough babuji, kavitha has not trapped me. We love
"oh really, does she love you a lot? Then get away
from my home and you won't inherit any wealth from me. Let us see till how much
time your love lasts"
"Ji, aisa math kijiye. Hame hamare bte se door math
kariye"wailed devyani. But Devender turned deaf ear to her pleas. She saw a
blurred vision of her chotey going away with his bride. Slowly she registered
what was happening and searched for Manorama. She found her in a devasted state
at the feet of Devi Maiyya. She made her way towards her and'
"Mano, rona math beta. Tum jaroor maa banogi. Apne
babuji ke baathen dil pe math lena. Meri acchi bacchi ho na' tum rona band karo
beta" she consoled her daughter in law. This is all she could do. She silently
watched her Mano weeping on her lap and caressed her. She promised herself of
never doing injustice to her badi bahu Manorama.
spectator to this was Mayank. He watched his mother and wife with tears in his
eyes. If only he could do something about this'
He als saw his
babuji looking at them with disgust. He was a strict man and considered wealth
as a quality to judge people. He never speaks with people who are less in
status to him.
Devyani came out of her
thoughts hearing loud sounds from the rooms of her grandsons Manvith and
Manish, she thanked her Devi Maiyya for blessing Manorama with sons. At last
her Devi Maiyya had saved her Mano from the wrath of her husband after 6 years
and he breathed his last peacefully seeing his grand sons with pride.
She is now eagerly waiting for the arrival of her
chote's parivaar. How she wished to have a daughter of her own. Though she was
not blessed she satisfied herself for having Aanchal and by treating her bahu,
her mano as her own daughter. She then wished to have grand daughters but mano
bore sons. At last her wish has been fulfilled, her chote has 3 daughters.
Shashank is in deep slumber. Kavitha sat staring at
the man who sacrificed everything for her love, the man who can never stay away
from his amma has not even spoken to her for 23 years. She still remembers her
mother in law, a woman with a great dignified look and love in her eyes. How
she wished to gain her love, how she wished to be a part of the family. Now the
time has come for the reunion of the family. She is eagerly waiting to see her
beloved husband unite with his amma, to see her daughters amidst them enjoying
the love of grandma, baiyya everything.
She thanked god for making both the brothers meet at
the reception. Her dream to see everyone united is gonna come true. She worried
about the antics of her twins. But as soon as she thought of khushi her worry
vanished into thin air. Her heart swelled with pride thinking about her Khushi'
she is the happiness of all. Her hazel eyes remove distress and re assure you.
That is what she does when she feels unhappy'.simply she stares at her daughter
and her eyes' she was a boon to them' her first born' her first khushi.
She was not
at all worried for her twins now as she now know what to do' she got up and
walked to khushi's room which lies at the farther end of the corridor. She
found the lights on, and peeped into the room without making any noise. She
found her working on her laptop with her back faced to kavitha.
"titaliya'.." she called her from behind.
"amma, why are you standing there'? Come inside."
Kavitha looked at the doe eyes looking at her with
interest and eagerness of what her amma has to say her. She felt her worry melt
away. She smiled at khushi and started narrating everything that happened with
the twins and her papa.
Khushi gave a warm smile to her amma.
them to me' I will take care of them' but don't mention to them that you have
talked to me about this matter' I know how to deal with them..." she chuckled.
" I know beta'.thats why I have come to you'ok now you
go and sleep it is already late'"
"Ji amma, just had to complete the pending work before
we go to Lucknow'. I will wind up the work now'.gud night maa'"
"gud night beta'."
her room'looked at her husband lovingly and prepared to sleep as she now know that
the twins would give their best with the guidance of khushi and soon enchant
their grandma, chaacha, chaachi with their charm. With that she too slipped
into a deep peaceful slumber.
Some more flashback of what happened after Devender drove them out of the
