Akashi;the prowd beauty was someone
who believed that external beauty is very important for a person.She dreamt of
having a fairy tale life with the most handsome man.She found her handsome
dream man.He was Kshitij.But she became very late in understanding that Kshitij
has only external beauty and he lacks internal beauty.Kshitij's unexpected
misbehaviour proved that he is an animal in disguise of a handsome young
man.Akashi who became the victim of rape had to concieve a baby which was
the result of Kshitij's cruelty towards her.She hates her baby as it reminds
her of the bitter moments she had with Kshitij.
Akashi lands up in the hospital to remove the burden forever.
"Akashi..you are here?"
Akashi is shocked to see Shyamal behind her.He is her neighbour who is a
"Why are you here?"Akashi asks him.
"I came here to pick up someone.Why are you here?",he answers.
Akashi is a bold girl who is frank and does'nt hesitate to disclose the biggest
truth of her life.
"I came to abort my baby".
Shyamal takes a few seconds to digest what she said.
"The whole world knows what Kshitij did to me.But no one knows that i'm
suffering because of that incident's after effects.The baby in my womb is the
result of his cruelty.So i hate this creature.Because it is that animal's
"Kshitij tortured you.So you are forced to carry his baby in your womb.But
don't forget that it is your baby also.What did this innocent baby do to
you?The baby in the womb will be waiting eagerly to see it's mother's beautiful
face.Your baby will love you a lot.Because you are it's mother.Then how can you
kill your baby?If you do that you will also be an animal like Kshitij.You
thought with your brain.But think with your heart also".
His words reach Akashi's heart.Her tears flow down.
"What you said is true Shyamal .Why should i punish my innocent
Akashi's mother Shusheela comes to know that she is pregnant.Shusheela's tears
flow like a river.
"My daughter's life is spoiled".
"My life is not spoiled mom.God gave me a baby as my strength.I will live
for my baby".
Akashi is brave enough to face the obstacles of life.
Susheela's eyes did'nt become dry.
"What will society say if you give birth to a baby?Will anyone marry my
They hear Shyamal 's voice from behind.They are shocked.
"Shyamal !Do you know what you said?Stupid"Akashi turns back.
"I meant what I said".His tone is sharp.
Susheels and Akashi are stunned.
I know that i'm just a driver.I have no education.I look ugly.Thinking of
marrying someone like Akashi itself is arrogance.But i have no bad
intention.I'm grateful to this family.Because of you all i'm having bread and
butter.When my family suffered due to poverty Akashi's late father gave me
job.Otherwise my family and I would not have even survived.I want to help you
all by saving Akashi's reputation".
Shusheela is relieved.Shyamal leaves the place.
Thinking of marrying an ugly man like Shyamal is unbearable for Akashi.
"No..i can't.Shyamal and I don't match physically".
"Akashi...still you are giving importance to looks?Have you not learnt any
lesson from your past?The handsome man you loved destroyed your life.And the
ugly man whom you refuse to marry is trying to save your reputation.He stopped
you from doing a crime like abortion. "
Susheela's words make Akashi think of Shyamal deeply.
She marries Shyamal painfully to save the
When Akashi enters the bedroom she does'nt feel that she is newly wed bride.She
is frightened to sit near the ugly husband Shyamal .
"Don't be scared.I'm not like your Kshitij.I may be looking like an ugly
beast.But not terrible like a beast.Though i'm uneducated i know how to behave
with girls.I will not try to impose my rights on you as a husband.I'm just your
baby's father.You may not be my wife.But your baby is mine.I have rights on
Akashi smiles with relief.
Shyamal is a caring husband.Akashi enjoys it unknowingly.She
does'nt find it disgusting.
Akashi is washing clothes.Shyamal runs to her and holds her hand.
"What are you doing?Atleast for the first three months you need rest.You
should not work like this.It is not good for the baby.For you also.."
"Really?Why are you bothered about me and my baby?Don't you think that you
are over reacting?"
"Overreacting?Me?Never.I'm just caring for my baby.I want my baby to be
healthy.You are not giving enough care to your health Akashi.You are so
"Why are you bothered about me?Why are you so caring to me?Tell me Shyamal
Silence is Shyamal 's answer.
"Tell me Shyamal ".
"I'm going now",he says.
"No,you should go only after answering my question".
He goes near her.
"I care for you".
He continues,"But I don't know why".
He goes away.Akashi is disappointed by his answer.
"Why i am feeling dissatisfied?Did i expect something more from his
Akashi is confused.
Days pass.Akashi's starts enjoying Shyamal 's presense secretely.
Rain drops are falling down.Shyamal enjoys the raindrops covering
him.Akashi enjoys watching it.She goes near him.
"Why are you here Akashi?It's raining heavily?You will fall sick".
"You will also fall sick.Then why are you?"Akashi asks back.
"I love being in rain".
"I also love having fun while raining".
"But it will affect your health.What will happen to our baby?"
Shyamal grabs her hand.Akashi looks at his eyes.
His eyes also get hooked to her
glowing eyes.In the rain when they stand close to each other they feel
passionate towards each other without their own knowledge.He takes her
inside.He takes a towel and dries her hair.He wipes her wet face.Akashi's eyes
are on him.He becomes conscious.
"Why are you staring at me like this?As if i did something wrong".
"I'm just watching your small deeds.How much you care for me...nobody can
do like this for someone who is not close.I'm not close to you.Still how can
you be like this to me?"
Akashi's words make him blank.
"Do you know Shyamal ..when we both were in the rain i felt something
strange.I don't know what..".
"Me too Akashi",He says in his mind.
Akashi eldest sister Priya who works in US comes back from US with her
husband Aditya.Priya's visit was a big surprise for Akashi.
"Priya di..Aditya jeeju...i'm so happy to see you both.You guys are going
to have your second wedding anniversary.Right?I can't wait for the
"Priya was waiting eagerly waiting
to see you Akashi".
Akashi s smiles,
"Me too.That's the bond we share".
Priya's eyes get welled up with tears.
"Why are you crying di?We both are seeing each other after a long
time.Still you seem to be upset".
"You used to share everything with me.But you hid from me how you suffered
here.You all hid what happened in your life last few months.Our mom lied to me
that you are getting engaged to the person you love.So i thought it is
Kshitij.But now only i came to know that Kshitij cheated you and you were
forced to marry Shyamal who is not at all like your dream man".
"I thought Kshitij is my dream man.But what did i get from him?Shyamal
is not my dream man.But i'm happy with him".
"You always wanted to be with a handsome man.You had told me that life
with an ugly husband will be like living in a hell",Priya's recalls
Akashi's thoughts about marriage.
"I used to think like that before.But not anymore.Di..trust me...I love
being with Shyamal .You all may find him ugly.But I find him handsome now.Because
i see his internal beauty always.He is so caring.But i'm not satisfied.I feel
that i expect something more from him".
Priya can't believe it.
"You changed a lot Akashi.You are seeing reality now.You understood that
external beauty is nothing.You expect more from Shyamal .That means you expect
more than care from him.You want to be loved by Shyamal ".
Akashi is stunned,
"Yes Akashi.You are in love with Shyamal",Priya
Akashi is excited,"Thank you di for reading my mind and making me understand
what is in my mind.You are right.I'm in love with Shyamal .Now i understand my
feelings for him".
Priya and Aditya smile.
"Akashi...Shyamal accepted you with
no complaints.He takes care of you so well.It means Shyamal also loves you.It's
just that he is covering it thinking that you don't love him.So don't delay
anymore.Go and express your love towards Shyamal".
"You are right jeeju.I must confess
my love to Shyamal".
Akashi goes to the taxi station looking for Shyamal .Luckily she finds him
inside the taxi there.Shyamal is surprised to see her there.
He comes out of the taxi.
"Why are you here?I told you to be at home.That is more safe for
"I could not control myself.I felt like seeing you very badly".
He can't understand anything.
"I can't sleep unless i open my heart in front of you.I want to tell you
that i love you".
Shyamal is surprised.
"Are you deprived of senses?"
"Yes.I know what i'm saying.I love you Shyamal ".
Shyamal can't believe his ears.
"How can you love me?You are so beautiful and rich.But i'm ugly and
She keeps her finger on his lips.
"Don't put yourself down.You are always underestimating yourself.You are
not ugly.You are handsome.Your mind is that beautiful Shyamal .You taught me
that external beauty has nothing to do with love.I love you ".
Shyamal smiles slowly,
"I love you too".
Akashi goes into his arms.She feels secure in his arms.
Akashi stands near the window recalling their sweet confession.Shyamal
who is lost in her beauty caresses her face.She gets lost in him.
They become the symbol of love everyway.
Priya-Aditya look at their wedding pictures and smile.
P:I can't believe that 2 years passed away so fast.I feel yesterday was our wedding.
Ad:Still you look like a bride Priya...
He gets romantic with her.She gets melted in him.
Aditya and Priya celebrate their wedding anniversary by feeding cake each other.
All are very happy.Suddenly Priya faints.
Susheela cries:Priya beta...
Akashi and Shyamal are shocked.
They take Priya to the hospital.
The doctor congratulated Aditya:Congrats.You guys are going to be parents.
They all are very happy.
Susheela:So two babies in our family.
Shyamal and Akashi smile at each other.
Aditya goes near Priya.She is blushing.He cups her face in his hands emotionally.
Ad:When you fainted I lost my life.But now...Thank you so much for this wonderful gift Priya.
P:Thank you so much for your lovely gift Adi...
They smile at each other.
