Chapter 12: Shocking
"Aap log chilla kyun
rahein hain?" she said.
"Magar Daadima yeh,
yeh sab decoration humare reception ke liye haina?" Maan asked puzzled.
"Reception? Aapne toh
kaha mujhe kuch nahi chahiye, ab reception chahiye?" Daadima teased.
"Nahi, I mean haan,
magar," he flustered. Geet looked embarrassed and looked at Maan hesitantly
while he himself was finding reasons to cover up.
"I didn't want to go
over your words Maan," she said innocently.
internally for falling for his Daadima's trap, afterall she was Savitri Devi
Khurana! He had to find a way to manage else she would not leave an opportunity
to tease him. "Maine socha aap zaroor koi surprise denge so we wanted to be
well prepared," he lied.
"Sorry my dear potha
this was not for you. Magar tum kaho toh we can change it," she hinted.
"Nahi!" Maan and Geet
shouted simultaneously causing Daadima to look confused.
"I mean it's okay
Daadima magar baat kya hai. What's all this for?" he tried changing subject.
suppressed a smile at her grandson's flushed face. Well he had to get used to
the fact that Savitri Devi Khurana doesn't do things she expected, she does
something different. This preparation was just to tip them off while the real
surprise was still intact. Arjun had called this morning to inform her of his
return and that's when an idea flashed in her mind. She had told him to keep
his arrival as a surprise to Maan so that she could execute her plan. And the
first step in the plan was to confuse Maan and Geet so that they could really
enjoy the real surprise. "Arjun had called today saying he would come back
today. So socha ki ek choti si party rakh le, just us."
"Really he is coming
back?" Maan's eyes lit up. Arjun, technically his dad's brother's son, had always
been like his own brother. He was very fond of Arjun and treated him like his
own brother. Since the death of Arjun's parents, he had come to stay in Khurana
mansion and Maan had never let him feel their absence and helped and guided him
since his young age. Arjun also had equally looked upto Maan like his older
brother, a mentor, and a guide with whom he could confide his worst fears. Both
Arjun and Maan shared a very beautiful bond like Ram Lakshman themselves.
"Wow! That's great,"
he began but then remembered, "magar why didn't he call me first. Aane do, I'll
show him what it is to forget Maan Singh Khurana," he said sternly.
Daadima chuckled at
Maan's reaction at his younger brother. Although he seemed very strict from the
outside, she knew he was very fond of Arjun and protected him in every aspect.
everyone heard a deep voice and turned to see a handsome young, tall, and
well-built man with a dazzling smile come running into the mansion with his bag
on one hand. Maan saw the figure come closer and his anger seemed to have
instantly flown away replaced by a soft smile.
Arjun ran into the
mansion dropped his bag and came forward to take the blessings of Maan first.
"Arjun, yeh tum kya kar rahe ho?" Maan asked preventing him from touching his
deejiyena," Arjun said still trying to bend down.
"Pagal, aa gale lag
Arjun straightened and hugged his older
brother tightly. "How are you veerji? Ugh! Missed you so much!"
"Me too," Maan added
patting Arjun's shoulder.
Arjun came out of
embrace and looked at his Daadima with a toothy grin. "Hi sexy!" he said
kissing her cheeks soundly before bending to take her blessings.
scolded lightly and laughed. "Kaisa hai tu?" she asked cupping his cheek.
"Bahut tak gaya hoon.
Aapne dekha how thin I have grown?" he asked dramatically.
"Haan, haan dikhta
hai," Daadima began, "dikhta hai ki tum bahut patla ho gaye ho," playing along.
"Magar maine toh nahi kaha jao, Maan ne kaha. Complain over there," she said
pointing at Maan.
"Aap Maan veerji ko
kyun keh rahe ho, he didn't do anything," Arjun defended.
Daadima threw her
hands up in defeat, "Uff! Mujhse nahi hota yeh jo aap dono ke beech mein jo
hai. Anyway Arjun you complained on phone you couldn't get to see bhabhi in her
person. Ab vo tumhare saamne hai, won't you greet her?"
Arjun realized and
slapped his forehead. "Oh ya veerji totally forgot that! Sorry bhabhi," he
pleaded turning in Geet's direction.
Geet had been a silent
observer until now of all the things happening in front of her. She didn't have
much to say and stood numb trying to grasp the depth of the things happening
around her. She had been shocked to know that reception surprise was nothing as
expected and was trying to think of ways to speak when she saw Arjun coming.
The mention of his name had made Maan very happy and the love he carried for his
brother was evident in his gestures. She felt jealous for a second that she
didn't have siblings like that with whom she shared a close bond. Her Brij
veerji was anything close to brotherly forget friendly. She had grown up alone
with her mother's company at home and friends in college. And seeing the lovely
bond between Arjun and Maan made her feel a little jealous wishing she had
siblings like them.
"Bhabhi?" Arjun asked
seeing her not react.
"Huh?" she came out of
thought, "It's alright."
"Arre Geet, hum aise
kaise chondenge kuch toh sazaa dene padenge," Maan hinted coming to stand
"Veerji, et tu brute?"
"Of course," Maan said
haughtily causing Arjun to groan.
"Add me in!" a female
voice piqued in.
"Sweety!" Maan's eyes
lit up at her arrival while Geet felt a tinge of prick at the sight Maan's
"What add me in? Tumhe
pata bhi kya hai?" Arjun asked annoyed.
"Jo bhi ho Bujji will
not do anything against me," Anushka said proudly. "Kyun Maan?" she asked
winking at Maan.
"Bujji will not do
anything against me," Arjun mimicked with a disgusted look on his face.
"Oi dare you take that
name on your lips," Anushka warned.
"Kya karogi haan?
Bujji, Bujji," Arjun chanted to her annoyance.
choopistaanu (I'll show you)," Anushka said running to catch Arjun who escaped.
Maan laughed at the
little encounter between the buddies while Daadima chuckled at their
childishness. Arjun ran around the couch dodging the little pillows on the sofa
thrown by Anushka, who was close on heels behind him. Arjun finally managed to
run behind Geet and hide begging for her shield.
"Bhabhi please bachalo
mujhe is devil se!" he said crouching behind Geet.
"You rakshas did you
just call me a devil?" Anushka exasperated trying to reach Arjun.
"Arre devil ko devil
na kahoon toh kya kahoon?" he asked dodging Anushka's hand.
"Geet you are doing
wrong by shielding that rakshas!" Anushka screamed. "Bujji! Dekho!" she
"Arjun mere sweety ko
tang mat kar chalo ajao!" Maan commanded.
mimicked coming to stand behind Geet who looked lost in the midst of the entire
"I am warning you
Arjun dare you call him Bujji," Anushka warned.
"Bujji, Bujji," Arjun
chanted before sticking his tongue out and running towards the stairs.
"You idiot! Come
here!" Anushka yelled before following to get him.
"Pagli," Maan chuckled
shaking his head at their encounter. "Sorry Geet, dono ek dusre kushti ki bina
nahi reh sakte."
Geet smiled in return
not knowing what to reply. Daadima came forward addressing, "Accha Maan aap log
dinner ke liye aajayiye. We all will have a family dinner."
"Ji," Maan returned.
A heavy dinner had
sloughed everyone as they settled down in main hall to have a small chat before
retiring to bed. Geet watched while the brothers caught up on the issues they
had missed while occasionally Anushka filled in the missing stuff. Daadima was
a spectator for a while before she decided to retire for the night, as it was
quite late for her. On her way to her room she turned to face the newly wedded
couple, "Enjoy the rest of the night I mean evening," she winked, her eyes
gleaming mischief. Unable to understand what she was hinting at Maan and Geet
simply nodded and wished her good night.
Next it was Arjun's
turn. He forced a yawn, "Teekhai veerji, I am also going to go. Chalo Anu," he
"Kyun? Tum jao na,"
Anushka said surprised.
"Arre, haan voh tumse
zaroori baat karni hai," he eyed her.
"Jo bhi tum kal karlo
mujhe Bujji se baat karni hai," she said settling back near Maan.
Arjun shook his head.
This woman was such an idiot to have been interfering with the newly married
couple. She yanked her towards him, "Alright veerji take care! Good night," he
grinned looking at Maan. "Kuch toh samjho buddhu!" he hissed in Anushka's ear.
Anushka still was reluctant while Arjun dragged her, waving back at Maan and
Geet sighed in relief
to have finally retiring for the night. It had indeed been long after the
sudden "reception shock" and then Arjun entry. She badly wanted to snuggle
comfortably in her bed as she was dead tired and the saree and the jewels were
not helping her either.
"Toh?" she heard Maan,
who was looking at her expectantly.
"Toh?" she questioned
"I think we need to
retire to bed too," he said voicing her thoughts.
"Of course. I don't
think I can go back to the outhouse as Daadima has shifted all my belongings
here. Is there any guest rooms here?" she asked stretching and getting up.
"Haan, magar first why
don't you change yourself and then I shall show it to you."
Maan led the way
upstairs to his room while Geet followed him. They turned around the corner and
Maan opened his room only to get shocked!
"Surprise!" he heard
his family members screaming from his room that was now beautifully decorated
with various types of flowers hanging all over the room. His head spun while
Geet stood numb and wide-eyed at the sight in front of her.
