Hmmm…an idea creeped in my mind today at work and I just had to pen it down, it's my first attempt and am not really sure about it, would love your thoughts!
All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players;
Kanya stood staring out her window watching the waves rise and fall; how ironic she wondered the waves had reflected so much of her life, its ups and its downs reminded her of the turbulences she had faced. She watched silently as the minutes on her large clock above the mantelpiece ticked away. She had never been the silent sort, she was once a chirpy and full of life Kanya who had received everything she laid her pretty eyes on. Having lost her mother during childbirth Kanya had become the apple of the eye for her father, Anand Godbole. He doted on his only child and found in her the happiness he had lost with his wife Pammi. Anand was a successful entrepreneur therefore fulfilling his daughters wish was always a snap of a finger. Anand was everything for Kanya, he was the man who had given her the world on a silver platter then how could she not do the one thing he had so wanted her to do. How could she refuse a man who had given her everything and had asked for nothing in return.
Sunil Srivastav was a charming man, and it was his charm that had won over Anand's heart. The fact that Sunil was a mere employee in his office never bothered Anand for he found the boy to be intelligent and very sincere. Kanya and Sunil's alliance had immediately taken born in Anand's mind. If Pammi and Anand had ever had a son he would have turned out to be just like Sunil; Anand was sure of it. Perhaps that is why he didn't hesitate and had instantly brought up his marriage proposal to Sunil. Sunil at first had been flabbergasted; being an orphan he had worked hard to support himself and make it on his own in the world, and never had he dreamed that a man like Anand could bring about such a proposal. He had expressed his concern over housing and Kanya's well being to Anand but Anand had shooed those worried away. If it didn't hurt Sunil's self-respect Kanya and Sunil would live in the Godbole house after marriage. The thought of Kanya going away to her "sasural" one day had always depressed Anand, Sunil & Kanya living in the Godbole house would be perfect as his precious daughter will always be in front of his eyes and soon Sunil could take over handling the business.
Sunil had instantly started courting Kanya, he was a very humble man and not to bad to look at, but Kanya didn't love him. So what she thought, it was not always necessary to fall in love before marriage sometimes it could happened after marriage as well. She thought of her parents, they too had an arrange marriage and even after 25 years Pammi still ruled Anand's heart.
The wedding preparations were in full flow, Anand had wanted it to be a grand affair, for it was the wedding of his only child, he wanted everything to be perfect and it had been. Kanya had looked gorgeous and Sunil had looked just as handsome, everyone seemed so happy so content then what went wrong?
Kanya sighed and came back to the present, here she was alone, lonely and DIVORCED! She cringed at the sound of that and swallowed a sob. Her marriage had not even lasted a day! It had not even lasted 12 hours! It had all been over before it had even started and here she was 27 and divorced for 2 years!
Sunil had not been the sweet, innocent man they all had thought him to be, infact he was completely the opposite. The moment that Anand had brought up Kanya and his marriage to him Sunil had immediately seen this as a key to Anand Godbole's safe, all he had to do was get Anand to sign his business over to him which he knew was not an easy task, but after agreeing to the marriage Anand had been thrilled and had signed whatever was presented to him without uttering a word!
Sunil had broken all the promises he had made to Kanya as soon as they were made, she felt her world spin when her husband told her he married her for her father's wealth on their wedding night He had announced not just to her but to her father as well, who had ended up suffering a major heart attack which unfortunately he had not survived.
The divorce proceedings had been a blur, it was only a few days after Anand's wake, it seemed as if Sunil had it all planned, he wanted to be rid of her ASAP. She remembered the brief meeting she had with him after the divorce was finalized she was outraged and demanded and answer and all he said was "everything is fair in love and war" that is when she saw her, a beautiful girl had just walked to his side and put her hand into his and they walked away. That is all is remembered seeing that day the two of them walking away with her dreams and her fathers heard earned money and she could do nothing but watch.
Ranbir Nanda was a ruthless man. He did not believe in love or the institution of marriage but here he was standing as the best man at his friends wedding. He hated such displays of emotions and feelings, he did not believe in these silly rituals and cermonies he thought them to be too vile and a waste of time. No matter how much his mother tried she could not convince Ranbir to settle down, here he was nearing 30 and still single. It's not that he hadn't had his share of women, oh no Ranbir Nanda had bedded many women but that was the furthest he chose to go. He was a man who believed in one night stands, being emotionally involved with a women was a hassle the more involved you'd get the more they would stick.
Malika knew the reason behind her sons behavior and his trivial thoughts, it was Ranbir's father. Rajeev Nanda had everything a booming business, a loving wife and a handsome son but still he was unsatisfied. He was seceretly having an affair with his secretary and it hadn't taken Malika long to uncover it. The argument had been huge and it had ended with Rajeev walking out; unfortunately Rajeev not only left the house but this world as well he was involved in a terrible accident 30 minutes after leaving home and had died on the spot. Ranbir was 15 at the time and every detail of the argument had replayed in his mind every night, his mother had gently told him that Dad was in a better place, but Ranbir had hoped, he had PRAYED that his father was in hell rotting there for hurting his mother.
Ranbir had refused to let Malika live the life of a widow, why should his mother give up color for the sake of a man who had walked out on her. His Dadi; whom he fondly called Big D and his mother had tried to make him see reason but he would hear no word of it. The people talked and gossiped as they often did but Ranbir paid no ear. His fathers death had put Malika incharge of the business being inexperienced caused a lot of damage to RN Incorporated. the company was suffering major losses, many of their hotels had run out of business and the company also lacked competent employees. It was Ranbir who had changes all that at the age of 23 he had stepped in and taken control of RN Inc. Within the next 5 years the company had emerged a winner, Ranbir had brought RN Inc. to new heights and his success had no bounds.
It was the shrill of the phone that woke Kanya from her thoughts, she hadn't realized how much time had flown by and she was still there standing by her window.
Shruti- arey kahan hai tu, kabse tera cell try kar rahi hoon
Kanya- oh sorry yaar…
Shruti (cuts her off) oh fo rehne de na, acha sunn I called to tell you that your meeting with the MD of RN, Inc. has been set for tomorrow morning, you will have exactly thirty minutes to present and impress him babes, so best of luck!
