Everyone is seated at the dining
table eating the desserts after finishing the feast prepared for them'.
When everyone finished eating
Devyani cleared her throat and said'
"Aanchal bitiya ham aap sabko kuch
bathaana chahte hain'."
"jee maa. Bolona."
"hamara sashi'." Aanchal's face
glowed for a second at the mention of her bhai's name and then went pale
thinking what happened to him'.she began to panic'. "kal who apne parivaar ke
saath yahan aa raha hai'" finished
Aanchal's happiness knew no
bounds'.. "I'm going to meet my bhai after many years'.she squealed with
"Wow maa'. Just relax'you should
be well and good when you will meet your bhai tomorrow'." Teased Aki, giggled
Anjali at her brother's teasing'.
"Oh'.No'screamed Manish and
Everyone looked at them with
"I demand an explanation from you
guys'." Mano frowned at them'
"Me too'.", "me too'" cried
Aanchal, Anji and Devyani'
"Better I'll say late'haan guys'I
too need an explanation for your rather wierd behavior'" chimed in Aki'sniffling
his laugh at the sight infront of him'
Manvith and Manish were
surrounded by Mano, Aanchal, Devyani and even Anjali'. All were glaring at the
two boys who looked petrified at the glares thrown at them'.
"I think their eyes have the
power to turn us into ashes'"whispered Manish in Manvith's ear'.they looked
sheepishly at the people surrounding them'.they swallowed hard and Manvith
"woh kya hai na bua'Maa, dadi 10
din pehle se hi shor macharahe the'.aur hame teek se dhekbaal bhi nahi
kiya'.kab dekho shopping'.pooja'aur chaacha ke 3 betiyan hai'ham kya kare'hame
tho koi importance hi nahi de raha hai'.aur patha nahi hamare pyare behna kya
karne waale hai'who bhi theen theen'."pouted Manvith'.
"aur ab aap bhi woh list me aagaye na isliye ham
samjhe ab aap ko bhi sambhalna padtha hai'." Manish added sheepishly'
"tum logon ko aisa bolna nahi
chahiye bhaiyya' hame aap sambhal rahe haina'unlogon ko bhi aapko sambhalna
chahiye'.woh bhi appke behen haina"
"Manvith aur Manish aise nahi
beta'.apne dadi ke bare me aap kya jaante ho'.??? Sab log yahan aao sofa me
baito mai ek purani kahani bataongi''"
Everyone did as they told'. "kya
bolne vaali ho bitiya'?" Devyani asked with panic in her eyes'.
"Aaj hame baath karne do
amma'.hmm' mai 10 saal ke thi jab meri amma, bauji swarg sidhare ek saath mujhe
akele chod kar'ham middle class ke the' mujhe ek anath aashram se appke dadi hi
yahan... is ghar ko ley aaye'mai unki saheli ki beti thi'. Mujhe amma, bauji, bhaiyya
mile the' jab mai rothi thi tab aapke papa aur shashi chacha mujhe aise baat
karte te ki mai thodi hi din me meri dhukh bhulgayi'mujhe apni hi behen jaise
hi dekhthe the'.kabhi bhi mujhe yaad nahi aathi thi ki mai ek anath hoon' amma
tho mujhe khoob sare pyar de kar pala tha'.bauji bhi mujhe kabi bi ek baat nahi
kehthe the'mera shaitani ka daant aapke papa aur shashi bhai apne upar saup kar
bauji se maar khaathe the'.jab mera vivah hua mujhe apne ghar ki beti ki tarah hi sab tayyariyan ki thi'. Yeh baath
bhabhi ko bhi patha nahi'.aur sirf Aarav ko patha hai' par voh bhi hame ek rani
ki tarah hi treat kiya'"
"ab bolo aisa parivaar me jahan
sirf pyar ka ithna importance hai aur jab mera bhai 22 yrs ke baat ghar laut
raha hai hame ithna khushi bhi hothi haina'. Tum log iss ghar me mere bhaiyya
ki bacche hai aap log aisa apne hi chaacha aur unke betiyan ke bare me aisa
bole tho achha nahi hai'. Bhabhi mujhe maaf kijiye aapko itne saalon ke baad
aisa jaan na pada' Manvith aur Manish jab tum Anji, Aki,Arnie ko apne
bhai'behen samajh sakthe to shashi ki betiyan ko bhi maan sakthe hai behen ki
tarah'nahi toh ham vapas jaarahe hain abhi'." Finished Aanchal' Devyani had
tears in her eyes'.
"Di, yeh lo thoda juice pee
lo'.aur aap aise batein kyun kar rahe ho' aap hamesha apni di hi rahengi'.aur
yeh donon ke bare me chinta math kijiye Di'badmash kuch tede karenge to in
donon ko ghar se nikal dungi'mujhe apni betiyon se milne se aur meri betiyon ko
kuch kahe to khabardar'." Mano spoke terrifically with her eyed bulged out'
"manvith mujhe Maa ko dekhne se
kaalika devi ki yaad aa raha hai'ham chup chap reh jathe hain teek hai'"
"Bua sorry aap aise baat math
kariye'ham sabko ache hi treat karenge"' "Haan bua'" Manvith and Manish replied
with a long face'.
"maa' aap itna emotional ho
sakthe the mujhe kabhi nahi patha'" teased Aki'
"teek hai bacchon'abhi apne apne
kamrom me jayiye'rest lo..kal bahut kaam hai'" winked Devyani trying to make
the atmosphere light'
"Di, mai aapko saare gifts
dhikhathi hoon'" with that Mano dragged Aanchal to her room.
"Ham bahut bura kiya aise
chidakar'bua bahut dukhi huyi na'" Manvith said.
"mai to sirf majaak kar raha
tha'.ek baat to seekh liya feelings se
kabhi nahi khelni chahiye'"'Manish replied.
A knock on the door interrupted
them' Manvith opened the door to find Anji standing at the door'
"pari andar aao na'tumhe khoob
sari bathe batana hai'"
"bhaiyya' mai bhi aap se bahut
share karne vaali hoon' aapko bahut miss kiya'."
"ham bhi'kyun Manish'waise bhi
aaj kal Manish bhaiyya toh bahut busy hai'.haina'"
"chup ho jao'" threatened
Manish'catching his collar..
"Pari tumhe patha hai Manish ka
ek girlfriend hai'. Finished manvith what he has to say'
"Really bhaiyya'.??? Show me her
photo na'. surely you will have one'.is she nice'.come on tell us please'" Anji
aske din excitement'
"pari he is not even saying her
name'.justs speaks with her for hours and then starts dreaming about her'"
giggled Manvith'Anji too giggled'
"Shut up you two'." Manish said
while blushing and in mock anger'
With an impish smile he said "
pari don't think less about Manvith'he is the hero of his class'already
received 3 proposals but poor guy didn't said yes to any of them'" it was
Manvith's turn to become red'
"What should I do I don't like
any one'" he replied genuinely'
Nobody saw Aki listening to their
talks through the French window'he was grinning hearing their secrets'good I
feel myself like a teen ager'he thought'remembering how he and Arnie used to
pull each other's legs regarding girls'ofcourse unknown to their Maa and
Paa'they would tease the heel out of them'
"bhaiyya'I want to say
something'well'I 'hmm" Anji stuttered'
"bolo na pari'" Manvith and
Manish encouraged her'
Aki heard this and came out of
his trance' he eagerly listened to what she has to say'.
"bhaiyya'. I have a crush on
someone'." She said and closed her face with her palms waiting for them to
Aki got the shock of his
life'Princess has grown hmm'he thought'
"What'.oh my'. pari'.did you
propose him'?" "What did he say'how does
he look???'do you both talk???'is he a good fellow'?" they stacked questions at
"I won't say until you say who
your girl friend is'?" she said that and ran away'..leaving the brothers gaping
"is everything packed'are all of
you ready'?" shashi asked.
"yes papa'" kruti and kriti spoke
Shashi looked at Khushi for her
approval'she nodded'and the SUV zoomed out of shantivan'..
Kruti and kriti enjoyed the ride
thoroughly'.humming songs' Kavitha enjoyed looking at her kids' Shashi didn't
say anything as Khushi had asked him to leave them to her'.he was sure she will
manage'they had a gala time'soon they were asleep when they reached the
outskirts of Lucknow'
Shashi's eyes clouded with
remembrance'He asked the driver to stop near a lounge to freshen up'.and also
to have some snacks'it was nearly 2 hrs since they had eaten and 5 hrs since
they had started from home'
The white SUV entered the gates
of Gupta Mansion'
At the entrance Shashi found his
Amma, Di, Bhabhi and their kids' they got down' Mano and Aanchal rushed to
welcome them' Devyani stood rooted seeing her son, her chotey after a long
time'tears flowed down her cheeks'.
They hugged Shashi and
kavitha'.then turned towards the girls standing there'.her eyes bore into a
pair of familiar hazel eyes which she immediately recognized'.
She is Khushi'..Oh my God'..my
arnie's Khushi'.she thought'.a glint of happiness was seen in her eyes'she felt
elated'.she seemed to be well mannered she thought glancing at the hesitating
girl in front of her'
Khushi gave her a hesitant smile
not knowing how to address her'.she was engulfed in a warm hug' "I'm Aanchal
bua'.." she said introducing herself'. "I'm khushi'err'.bua" she
replied'.sending immense pleasure to Aanchal'. I feel like you are my
