(Army headquarters, Shimla)
"Sir, these are the names of the officers who are asked to be on duty"
Major Rajveer singh shekawat took the papers and studied them.
His eyes stopped at a certain point. "Lt Ali beg…Lt aalekh"
For a moment Rajveer was lost.He could see the KMA academy…its corridors…its classrooms…everything.
He was deafened by various sounds and noises coming from the walls of the academy.
He saw the faces of the people who were a part of this academy, a part of his life.
It was like a slideshow of memories captured in individual frames and were snapping in and out in quick succession…
Brig chandok's office…
"Welcome to the academy Captain…I am brigadier Chandok. I am honoured to have you here"
Navin's Picture on the Hall of fame wall…and naina…
"haar ke bhi jeetne wale ko baazigar kehtein hain"
"Mujhe yeh pata hai Captain sir, ki who kudi dil ki bahaut changi hai…aur who poore academy mein bas aap pe hi bharosa karti hai"
"I have come back in this academy for you captain, simply because I have fallen in love with you"
Huda's tear stained face…
"Is poore academy mein bas tumhi mere raazdaar ho huda"
"Main thak gayee hoon sir …main ladte ladte thak gayee hoon"
"aapko is academy se jaana hi hoga captain!!"
"You have to confess everything that is written in these letters captain!!"
Voice from the control room..
"Aaj maine jo bhi dekha, usse mujhe yeh yakeen ho gaya hai ki Captain Rajveer singh shekhawat aur Cadet naina singh ke beech mein Najayaz sambandh hai"
"I made a mistake sir, but I did it because I thought I was right…. i wrote the letters sir"
Naina running away from him…
"I hate you!!…I hate you for everything…I will never forgive you for this..Rajveer singh shekhawat!"
Rajveer's jaws tightened and his heart stopped. The last voice was ringing in his ears…nearly making him blank.
Rajveer was numb. He didn't respond…
The voice gave him a jerk back from his memories…He looked at the Orderly..quickly regaining his composure ..
"Any orders for me Sir?"
"Inform these officers to report as soon as they arrive"
Rajveer decided to shut everything up in his mind forever…Now he didn't have time for anything…not even his pain…His duty was the only thing he wanted to live for and die for…
Pooja and her cousins were halfway to shimla… for a moment she forgot everything she was ever sad about and was cheerfully enjoying every inch of their trip, the view from the car and the fresh air were helping her to get her original self back…
"Lets play a game" announced prabhjot, pooja's cousin.
"Game?? Hey stop acting kiddishly" Cried one of her cousins
"There's nothing kiddish in this..let's play..waise bhi tumlog ke missed calls mujhe pareshan kar rahein hain" defended Pooja and turned to prabhjot and asked "what is this game about"
"This game is word association game…we will invidually ask you a word one after the other and you have to tell a word associated with it…whichever comes to your mind instantly…you will not be allowed to spare even a second,the one who will take time to answer will lose"
"arey yeh toh mere shahrukh ke kuch kuch hota hai wala game hai..!"
"accha accha thik hai..i will play first!" volunteered Pooja.
Pooja made a face…
"Al…" she stopped and couldn't speak anymore…
Prabhjot jumped with happiness..
"Time is up!! Pooja you lose…. yeaahhh!!"
Pooja became silent…
"Yeah…I have lost"
All the seven stars till this point…somehow are going to connect…like a beautiful constellation…yet again they would come together to form a pattern which will define new boundaries and will break old beliefs…
Yudi..Naina..Ritu…Ali..Aalekh..Pooja, have arrived.
And Rajveer is waiting…
