Doobtey huey suraj se aaj humney yeh vaada kiya
Doobney na dengey hum apney pyar ke suraj ko
Teri Baahon mein beetegi har raat is tarah
Judaa hokar bhi rahengey tere saath is tarah!
In the early hours before dawn, Angad sneaked out of the Suite, leaving a sleeping Kripa, tired from their passionate night! When she went to dance class that morning, Simone told her Angad had received a phone call from his Dubai agent and he had gone to meet him. Kripa felt happy and elated that it was a step further towards their wedding.
Simone hugged Kripa : I am glad that you are going to be my sister-in-law….I really hope Angad gets that job soon and u two can get married next year!
Kripa asked her about her bank loan for the flat….Simone told her they didn't get it yet….Kripa asked her for details about the bank that had refused the loan and other details! She told Simone that she would try to help in any way she could.
Angad returned after 2 P.M. He called Kripa and asked her to go on a trip to Dona Paula Beach with him….Kripa asked Mishti to tell her parents she had gone shopping with some resort friends!
Mishti told her to be careful and return by 6 in the evening.
Kripa leaned happily on Angad's broad back with a sighing smile as they roared off on his bike towards Dona Paula…….it was a glorious day and both hearts were singing with joy, hopeful about the future!
Dona Paula beach, associated with a romantic myth, is also known as a Lover's Paradise! There was a Rocky promontory with a cliff right on the sea….it was a breathtakingly scenic place….Kripa felt her heartbeat stop at the beauty of the place.
Angad and Kripa sat arm in arm on the rocks close to the cliff and he told her the legend of Dona Paula.
History goes that the beach is named after Dona Paula de Menzes, daughter of a viceroy (in colonial India), who threw herself off the cliff, when refused permission to marry a local fisherman, Gaspar Dias., whom she loved! The myth says that Dona Paula is entombed in the Cabo Chapel of the Raj Bhawan and is supposed to be seen emerging from the moonlit waves wearing only a pearl necklace.
Kripa's eyes became tearful when she heard the painful story of Dona's love…..she hid her face in Angad's arm …..he lifted up her chin and wiped her tears, smiling tenderly at his tender-hearted girl!
Kripa: Angad, mujhey bahut darr lag raha hai…..agar hamarey saath bhi aisa kuchh hua toh? she said tearfully…..agar Papa ne hamari shadi se inkaar kar diya toh? Main tumharey bina mar jaaoongi!
Ssshhhh….. Angad put a finger on her lips…..phir kabhi marney ki baat mar karna….pyar mein log martey nahin, pyar hamein jeeney ki wajeh deti hai….
Kripa, humara pyaar hamari taqat hai, kamzori nahin…..jo kuchh bhi ho jaye, hamesha yaad rakhna ke main sirf tumhara hoon aur tum sirf meri…..humarey tann alag ho jayen, lekin hamari rooh, hamara wajood hamesha saath saath rahega!
Kripa hugged him tightly and stayed that way for a long time!
She asked him after a while: Angad, agar Papa ne inkaar kar diya toh kya hum bhaagkar shadi nahin kar saktey? Jaisey tumharey Dad ne apni family ko chhoda tha tumhari Mom ke liye, main bhi apney parivaar ko chhodney ke liye tayyar hoon….
Angad: Hum donon ka rishta itna mazboot hai ke uskey liye tumhey doosrey rishtey todney ki zaroorat nahin padegi….mere Dad ne apna family chhoda that yeh sach hai lekin kabhi kabhi main sochta hoon ke agar unka family unkey saath hotey, mere Mom ke jaaney ke baad unka dukh baantey, toh shayad wo iss tarah….….……
Mainey dekha tha wo kitney udaas rehtey the, kabhi kabhi apney parents aur bhai-behen ko yaad bhi kartey the….lekin pyaar kii wajeh se unhoney sab chhod diya! I don't want u to do that with your family! Parivaar logon ko sahara deti hai, unka taqat banti hai…..mujhey vishwaas hai ke hum tumharey Papa-Mama ko zaroor mana lengey…..unko humarey pyar per yakeen dila dengey…..
Kripa trusted her man implicitly so she brightened up a little bit!
They had ice-cream from a passing vendor and relaxed on the beach till it was evening and the sun was setting orange and red over the sea!
The last dying rays of the sun turned the sea a blood –red! Kripa suddenly felt a chill…..as if somebody was walking over her grave…..she shut her eyes and opened them and suddenly she saw HER!
A slender form emerged from the waves in the gathering darkness wearing a string of pearls, a diaphonous figure of light and shade with long wet hair……Kripa shuddered and closed her eyes again……Angad, she whispered…..Wo yahan hai……
Angad: Kaun? Kahan? He looked around…..nobody was there except for the 2 of them on the rocks and the waves crashing below!
Kripa clutched his arm tightly, refusing to open her eyes again…..Wo wo….wo Dona yahan hai….she shivered in fright!
Angad laughed: Kripa tum kya dekh rahi ho??….yahan per toh hamarey ilaawa koi nahin hai….
Kripa was shuddering and whispered: Mainey usey dekha, mainey usey dekha abhi….
He pulled her into his arms and said: Kya tumney sachmuch Donna ko dekha……kaisi dikhti hai wo?
Kripa was shivering too much to even talk…..Angad saw she was really scared….he kissed her lips and said: Heyy Baby….don't be scared…..Donna ko dekhna good Omen hai…..iska matlab wo hamarey pyar ko bless karney aayi thi…..waisey wo har kisi ko dikhayi nahin deti….jo sachchey premi hotey hain buss unko dikhayi deti hai….
Kripa forgot her fears, she raised her head and said: Sach?
Angad : God Promise!…..yahan per wo kabhi kabhie dikhti hai only to true lovers! Iska matlab humara pyaar jeet jayega!..... He kissed her forehead as she smiled finally getting over her fear!
Her heart cried out for Dona as she thanked the spirit for appearing to her to bless their love!
