After having written a dark fan fic called Beauty and the Beast http://www.india-forums.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=744696 I've decided to write a new one. This one wont be as dark as my previous fan fic. Its quite heart lighted initially but yes, it wont always remain all glossy...unless Im feeling generous
Ok So here goes....
Living With The Stranger
Pyaar? Dosti? Balidaan'rishte, yeh sab kya hai? People have read about these in novels, visualised them with the help of films, but experiencing them? Well that differs from person to person. In today's day and age, people progress from dosti to pyaar. Kuch log to pyaar ko dosti bana lete hai. You know, wasn't working out, same old routine etc blah blah blah, so love becomes friendship. But within the bright, economically sound India people still have arranged marriages. Whether it is arranged by the pundit who eagerly matches their kundlis (only to benefit his own pocket ofcourse by adding a bit of mirch masala here and there), or either by dating agencies via the internet. Yahaan bhi kuch aisa hi hua tha. Two modern, educated and sophisticated individuals were, in a way forced to say farewell to their single status (they had no choice)! Both equally wealthy and spoilt by their respective parents. While the guy was cautioned by his parents to stop his awaaragi and settle down, the other was emotionally blackmailed to get married as this was a wish of her late mother.
Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, welcome to the wedding of Angad Khanna and Kripa Sharma. They could both be as different as chalk and cheese, or as similar as two peas in a pod'who knows! That's for them to explore. But are they willing to give each other a chance? Hmm dekhte hai!
Both progress towards the alter with garlands in their hands. This is the first time they meet, their first ever encounter, that too in front of hundreds of guests. They exchange garlands and take a glimpse at one another with hundreds of questions running through their mind simultaneously. Both descend by the fire and let the pundit recite important mantras before the fire. Kripa dressed in scarlet and gold while Angad in a cream sherwani with a red dupatta around his neck. Onlookers couldn't help but gush about the pair. Two women who seemed to be in their early thirties conversed about Angad Kripa Jodi.
'Haaye sadke java! Kinni soni jodi hai ji!'
'Haan Vimo. Kya kismet paayi hai dono ne.'
'Haan Kamo. Ab kya chupaana. Dono ki aaj pehli mulaakaat hai. Aur jhat pat shaadi. Ab socho, agar dulha ada-teda hota to?'
'Sab Kripa jitni khush naseeb thodi na hai. Ab hum dono ko hi dekh lo. Hum dono ki shaadi bhi kuch aisi hi hui thi. Socha tha kismet chamak jaayegi. Par ulta hi par gaya sab kuch'
'Haan kamo, door se unhe dekha to laga jaise Shahid Kapur ke saath Vivah ho gayi''
'Aur jab paas aaya to pata chala ke woh Shakti Kapoor hai' both laughed out laugh.
'Angad bhi kam nahin dikhta. Kripa ki to ab aish hai!'
'Arre aish Kripa tab karegi na jab Angad use jaane dega. Mujhe nahin lagta yeh Kripa ko ek pal ke liye bhi apne se door rakhega'.
'Haan bhai, isi umar mein mauj masti nahin karenge to kab karenge? Humein to jaise zang lag gayi hai!'
'Kahaani ghar ghar ki Vimo, kahaani ghar ghar ki! Humari haalat kuch aisi hi hai. Ghar parivaar se fursat thodi na milti hai. Aur unke office'' they sighed and continued their animated conversation as the bride and groom took seven turns around the fire while making seven life long promises to one another.
People who believe that all love stories end in marriages, boy you're wrong! The journey of exploring love begins after marriage. Well in this case it does. Kripa cries for one last time on her father's shoulder before heading towards the car with her new family. Walking towards the car, she throws rice over her head as a ritual, causing more tears to form in her eyes, but she refuses to look back, as she is aware that this would weaken her father even more and she did not want to see her father in that state at any cost.
As the car drives her and her groom to their destination, both think about what the future has in store for them, about the adjustments and sacrifices that are needed to be made' and about the fact that they were going to be living with a stranger for the rest of their lives.
Ok guys, that was the first part. Do let me know what you all think of it so far. Thank You
