Manik reached the orphanage along with Nandini and Shanti.
It was 11 am when they returned to the orphanage.
Manik and Shanti went to the kids room.
Manik asked to Shanti - Bua Bachche to theek hai na.
Shanti - Haan Beta kal raat hi humne doctor se checkup karawaya sab bachcho ka. Doctor ne unhe injection de diya hai aur kaha hai ki koi Pareshani ki baat nahi hai. Bas thoda rest karenge to theek hojayenge.
Manik - Thank God.
Lata- Bhagwaan ka lakh lakh shukar hai Ji jo ap log sahi salamat ghar pahunch gaye.
Warna to Mann me kayi saare bure khayal aarahe the ki kahi aap logo ko Kuch ho to nahi gaya.
Waise Nandini Kahan hai?
Dikhayi nahi de rahi.
This is when Manik realized that Nandini was not present in the room.
Shanti - Nandini kaha chali gayi. Abhi to hamare sath aayi thi.
Manik - Bua aap Rukiye mai dekhkar aata hu.
Saying this he went out of the room to search for Nandini.
Manik went to her room but she was not there.
He searched the entire orphanage but didn't find her.
One of the worker told Manik that he had seen Nandini in the garden.
Manik went to the garden and found Nandini sitting on the bench lost in her thoughts.
He went and sat beside her.
Manik - Nandini... Are you Ok?
Nandini got startled with the sudden appearance of Manik.
Nandini - Haan hum theek hai.
Manik - I know that something is bothering you. So tell me what is it?
Nandini - Nahi aisa kuch nahi hai. Mai to bas...
Manik - Ok samajh gaya. Tum mujhse share nahi karna chahti. It's Ok.
Nandini didn't know what to say. She couldn't just tell him about whatever happened between them last night.
Nandini selfthought -
Manik was not in his senses last night.
Agar mai use bata du to wo guilty feel karega.
Mujhe Lagta hai ki ye baat usse chupana hi behtar hoga.
Manik - Kaha khogayi...
Nandini - Manik hum ghar kab jaarahe hai.
Manik - Aaj Shaam ko . Kyu.
Nandini - Aise hi pooch rahi thi.
Manik knew that something was bothering Nandini but he didn't probe further as she was not ready to share it .
One of the workers of the orphanage came and said- Aap logo ko andar bula rahi hai Lata Madam khane ke liye.
Manik - Tum Chalo hum aate hai.
The worker went away .
Manik - Nandini let's go.
Nandini went inside the orphanage.
Everyone sat down for breakfast.
The kids were normal by now.
Manik observed that Nandini was silent all this while.
He couldn't understand the reason for her silence.
When they finished their breakfast, Nandini went to her room and locked it from inside.
Nandini took Manik's shirt which she had worn last night.
She held it close to her and remembered all the moments she had spent with Manik last night.
There was a knock on the door when Nandini came back to reality.
She went and opened the door.
It was Shanti.
Shanti - Nandini tum jaldi se ready hokar neeche aajao. Hum sab bahar jaarahe hai. Tum bhi Chalo.
Nandini - Buaji mera Mann nahi hai. Aap log jaiye.
Shanti - But Nandini...
Manik came from behind and said - It's Ok Bua. Agar ye nahi aana chahti to Rehne do. Hum bhi nahi jayenge. I will cancel the plan.
The kids on hearing this came running to Nandini and said- Didi Chalo na. Please... warna Bhaiyya Hume bhi nahi lekar jayenge. Chalo na bahut maza aayega.
Nandini looked at Manik and he shrugged his shoulders.
Nandini - Ok fine mai chalti hoon.
All the kids got happy hearing this and ran away in excitement.
Nandini - Bua aap chaliye mai change karke aati hu.
Saying this Nandini went inside closing the door behind.
Nandini to herself -
Ye mujhe kya ho raha hai.
Mujhe aisa nahi sonchna chahiye.
This is wrong.
She kept the shirt back in her bag and packed her remaining stuff as they were leaving for their home by evening.
Then she changed her clothes and went down.
Everyone had already settled in the mini bus which Manik had arranged.
Nandini entered the bus and saw that all the seats were occupied except the window seat beside Manik.
Shanti - Nandini ruk kyu gayi . Baitho na jaldi. Hume der horahi hai.
Nandini nodded and sat beside Manik .
The bus started.
Nandini kept looking outside the window.
Manik - Nandini...
Nandini - Haan...
Manik - Kya hua hai tumhe. Tum mujhe avoid karne ki koshish kar rahi ho. Subah se observe kar raha hu mai. Mujhse koi galti Hui hai kya?
Nandini - No Manik. Aisa kuch nahi hai. Aap aisa mat sochiye. Hum to bas... aise hi... kal raat ke baare me soch rahe the. isiliye shayad.
Manik - Nandini Jo hona tha hogaya. Ab us baare me soch kar dukhi hone se kya fayda. The important thing is that you are safe. We are safe. So don't think about all that.
Nandini - Haan. Ap theek keh rahe ho.
Manik - Thank God. Atleast tumne share to Kia ke what's bothering you.
Ab toh smile kardo.
Nandini smiled lightly.
Manik - So... let's leave all the worries behind and enjoy with the kids.
First they went to the Golden Temple.
Nandini prayed for Manik's and her family's well being and happiness.
Nandini closed her eyes, folded her hands and prayed - Please God Manik ko world ki Saari khushiya dena. Uske saare dreams pure karna. Kabhi bhi koi takleef hone mat dena. Always keep him hale and healthy.
Maaji aur Papaji aur Buaji ko bhi Khush rakhna hamesha.
Mujhe apne liye kuch nahi chahiye. Bas in sab ki har wish Puri kardo . Yahi kaafi hai mere liye.
Manik's prayer- God please Mom Dad ko hamesha Khush rakhna.
Aur please aisa kuch karo ki mujhe jaldi se job miljaye.
Aur Haan mist importantly Nandini ki har wish Puri karna. I m sure wo apne liye kuch nahi maange gi. Bus yahi problem hai uski. Kabhi apne baare me nahi sonchti. Hamesha hamare baare me hi sochti hai.
But mai uski taraf se aapko keh raha hu. Please remove all her sadness and fill her life with happiness. Mujhe pata nahi uski wishes kya hai. Ab wo khud to batane se rahi. Aap hi koi chakkar chalao aur please batado ki uski wishes kya hai. And I promise you that I will definitely support her in fulfilling them.
Aur bas mujhe aur Kuch nahi maangna.
Everyone finished their prayers and were about to leave the premises when Nandini bumped into someone.
That person without looking at Nandini said- I m really very sorry Maine aapko dekha nahi.
Then both Nandini and that person looked at each other and said in unison - TUM...
