stood facing Mr.AMIT BHUSHAN [GUNJAN's Dad]... his right palm over his left, his eyes
lowered... AMIT walked over to him and looking at him from
head to feet, he asked... his voice a bit high... "Dekhne mein toh kisi achhe ghar ke maloom hote
ho...Aise kaam karte, sharm nahin aati...??
SAMRAT moved his gaze up... looking at Mr.BHUSHAN...
his eyes emitting innocence... and the quickly lowered his gaze.
TINKU was enjoying every single minute of
SAMRAT's predicament... He was waiting for
SAMRAT to justify his actions... SAMRAT
S - Ji...ji...woh
aap galat samajh rahe hain...main toh bas...
T - (To his Dad) Papa...see...yeh toh aapko hi galat keh raha
hai..I told you naa... Aap please abhi Police ko bulaiye... (said in
S - No...No...Please...aisa nahin hai... (His hands moving
frantically as he spoke... he smiled a bit flustered and in a fake normal tone,
with his left hand pointing towards TINKU, he said...)Aap..aap iski
baatoon par gaur mat kijiye...Yeh bas yun hi shararat kar raha hai..he knows
me... (turned to TINKU side)
TINKU !! har waqt mazaak thik
nahin.. (As he spoke, his fake smile remained, but his teeth
clenched, as he spoke...)
T - (said to his Dad) PAPA ! I told you naa...isne hum sab ki
info collect kar li hogi...see,isse toh mera naam bhi pata hai..ab
dekhna...kahega ki, 'Di' ko bhi jaanta hai...
GD - (strictly) Hey ! sach sach batao...Kaun ho tum...? aur itne
jawaan,Hatte-Katte ho kar chori jaisa gira hua kaam kyun karte ho...?
SAMRAT shut his eyes as he looked away... then, opening
his eyes, he took a deep breath as he moved closer to
Mr.BHUSHAN and said in a normal tone, hoping to convince
Mr BHUSHAN... "SIR ! I
think yahaan thodi si misunderstanding ho rahi hai...Main Chor nahin, main
T - (cuts immediately) Chor nahin toh kya SPIDER MAN ho...??
SPIDER MAN ho toh...Hamari window par kya kar rahe the..? Wall
par chadhne ki practice...?? Kyun ab tumhaare haathon se jaal [Net] nahin nikalte...?
(asked in very innocent expression)
SAMRAT glared at TINKU as he was
cut again... but his glare quickly turned to another fake smile... his mind
though was crowded with thoughts that would definitely not bring a smile to his
((Yeh saala toh aaj meri jaan le kar hi
maanega...Haath dho kar peeche pad gaya hai...ek bhi mauka nahin chhod raha mujh
par attack karne ka...1 baar GUNJAN se shaadi ho jaane de
Bachhu...phir bataoonga main tujhe...Oh God !! Kitna bolta hai yeh..?? Chup toh
hota hi nahin...
GUNJAN !! woh kahaan reh gayi...? Ab tak toh aa jaana chahiye
tha...lekin,ab tak aayi kyun nahin...? Usne kaha tha ki,Jab tak woh naa
aaye...Main kuchh na kahoon...par, yeh Tingu-Mingu mujhe kuchh bolne de tab
naa...?? 1 sec., kahin yeh inn donon Bhai-Behan ki koi chaal toh nahin..?
No...Main bhi yeh kya soch raha hoon...woh mere saath aisa nahin karegi...usne
mujhe Promise kiya hai...and I don't know why but,uske Promise par yakeen karne
ko dil karta hai...agar usne kaha hai hai toh woh aati hi
tab tak main yahaan situation handle karne ki koshish karta
hoon...God !! Please,help me... 1st impression is last impression... agar aaj
impress nahin kar paaya toh yeh log toh mere baare mein kabhi sochenge bhi
nahin...chal beta SAM...shuru ho jaa... Ab tak ladkiyon ko
patata tha... par aaj pehli baar ladki ki family ko patana hoga... warna Life
Time ke liye uss YAMINI naam ka Sim apni Life ke Mobile mein daalna
hoga...aur yahaan toh 'Portability' ki facility bhi nahin
milegi... Dude...really need your Help...yeh meri puri life ka sawaal
voice broke his chain of thoughts... and SAMRAT looked at AMIT... as AMIT asked
him... "Tum chup kyun ho...?
I think mujhe tumhein Police mein hi dena hoga.
S - No..Sir...main woh...actually...
T - (cuts again immediately)
Papa...I told you naa...yeh toh Di ko bhi jaanta hai.inka
Gang kaafi dangerous hoga...Aap abhi POLICE ko bulao naa...wohi hi isse thik
S - (angrily glared at him) Sir he knows me...Yeh mujhse mil chuka hai...aur isse mera naam
bhi pata hai...sirf Aapko bata nahin raha,Main chor nahin...main
T - (cuts again) What do you mean by, "I know you"..?? Sorry ! lekin,main tumhein
nahin jaanta..Mujhe kya pata ki tumhaara naam kya hai...? Main tumhaari Gang
mein thodi na hoon... (said in totally unaware
GD - (to TINKU) TINKU...tum chup
raho...Mujhe iss se baat karne do...
Dad speak such, TINKU looked down and
smirked... he nodded in a positive...his hands behind him as he waitied for his
Dad to blast SAMRAT. But instead, he heard
SAMRAT's voice...and he looked up.... keeping
his hands on his waist...
S - Thanks
Sir...!! My name is SAMRAT SH..
T - (Inturrupt again) Naam SAMRAT aur kaam chori kaa..?? aur
Mr.BHUSHAN looked at TINKU
angrily. Seeing the look on his Dad's face,
TINKU gulped and looked downwards again, his hands moving away
from his waist . Mr.BHUSHAN turned to look at
SAMRAT again as he said strictly... "Look tumhara naam jo bhi ho...par,Kya main yeh jaan sakta
hoon ki,tum abhi raat ke (checked his wrist watch) 9 baje hamare ghar...nahin actually,hamare 1st floor ke window par
kya kar rahe the...? Answered to me...warna main abhi POLICE ko bulata
SAMRAT looked pale as all color drained from his
face hearing the word 'POLICE'. TINKU's smirk
got bigger as he heard his dad speak... he sneaked a look at
SAMRAT... and he grinned widely... how he hoped his dad would
not notice and he could do a small dance, waving his hands in
SAMRAT's face... but he would have to be content with the
priceless look on SAMRAT's face... he stifled a chuckle as he
looked away... SAMRAT on the other hand was trying to get a
word in... his voice giving away his anguish...
S - No...Sir...Actually,Main toh bas
yahaan...(( Ab kya kahoon..? GUNJAN ka naam loon...??
No kahin inhone usse galat samajh liya toh...?? Uss bechari ko toh kuchh pata
bhi nahin...bewajah,usse daant pad jaayegi...Aur mera saara Plan bhi fail ho
jaayega...Kya sochenge yeh mere baare mein...? Yeh saala toh pata nahin mujhe
kya banaye ja raha hai... CHOR...GANG...POLICE...?? Arre ! sabse bada
MAFIA toh yeh khud hai...sach Films aur TV ka kaafi bad effect
pad raha hai bachhon par... Kitne khatarnak ho gaye hain yeh...sirf naam ke hi
bachhe hain...Yeh toh kisi ko bhi Paani pila sakte hain... Oh God ! aur,Yeh
GUNJAN kahaan reh gayi...abhi tak aa kyun nahin rahi...?
Please,come fast...aur apne iss Gunde Bhai se
GD - (strictly) Ab phir chup kyun ho gaye...? tell
me tum abhi hamare ghar ki window par kya kar rahe
SAMRAT could not complete his sentence as he was
thinking about what to say... he looked at Mr.BHUSHAN... hoping
Mr.BHUSHAN would read his expressions when TINKU
threw another 'GOOGLY' at him... waving his
finger at SAMRAT as he spoke, he asked him in a put on strict
- Kuchh bolte kyun
nahin...?? Papa tumse hi baat kar rahe hain... Tum iss tarah mere Papa ke
questions ko ignore kar unki insult nahin kar sakte... so,tell the
truth... (turned to his Dad
side..) Papa...yeh toh aapko importance hi nahin
de raha...sirf aapki insult kiye ja raha hai... Isse lag raha hoga...aap toh
kuchh karoge nahin...toh darrne ki kya zaroorat hai...?? Abhi SUJiT uncle hote
naa...toh batate isse...(as he spoke, his eyes closed and he
jerked his head a bit... his tone clearly indicating his intention to pinch
looked at TINKU as he glared at him...not even attempting a
fake smile... He wished he could hold TINKU and shake him so
hard that all the extra, over smart sentences that TINKU spoke
would just drop off...
angry PRATAP SHERGILL [SAMRAT's Dad] stormed into the room where SUDHA
Jii [SAMRAT's Mom] was busy setting her cupboard. As she heard footsteps, she turned
around. Seeing her husband, she realised that now there was to be an exchange of
words. She turned back and continued her work, irking
Mr.SHERGILL even more. He walked over to her and angrily
P - Kya main jaan sakta hoon ki,aaj aapne
BALRAJ ke saamne aisa kyun kaha ki,'Yeh rishta ho na
ho...Friendship hamesha bani rehni chahiye...'...?? (asked in little strict tone)
- Toh...?? Iss mein galat
kya hai...?? Humare relations unke saath hamesha se hi achhe rahe hain.. 1
rishte ki wajah se usse kharab toh nahin...
P - (cuts angrily)
What do you mean by.., 'Iss rishte
ki wajah se...?'
- Ji...mera matlab yeh
hai ki...Agar SAMRAT ko iss rishte se
P - (cuts angrily n said
in loud voice) Aitraaz ka koi
sawaal hi paida nahin hota...aur yeh baat Aap khud bhi samajh jaayen...aur apne
laadle ko bhi samjha den... SAMRAT ko yeh shaadi karni hi
hogi...Maine BALRAJ se waada kar diya hai...aur phir kya buraai
hai YAMINI mein..?? SAMRAT ko iss rishte se kyun aitraaz
hoga...? jabki,woh ek dusre ko pasand karte hain...
- Dekhiye...main woh
nahin keh rahi...mera matlab toh sirf yeh tha ki, hamein SAMRAT
par pressure nahin daalna chahiye...Aakhir yeh uski puri zindagi ka sawaal
hai...zindagi usse hi guzaarni hai...toh usse haq hai ki woh apni pasand
na-pasand ko zaahir kare...Hum uski choice ko yun ignore toh nahin kar sakte
- Toh kya karein...? Usse
uss ki mann-maani karne den...? Keh den ki,jaao aur jo tumhaara dil kare woh
karo...!! Kisi bhi ladki ko pasand karo aur uske saath rehna shuru kar do...aur
Jab uss se dil bhar jaaye...kisi aur ko pasand kar lena...Shaadi karne ki koi
zaroorat hi nahin... Kyun..?? ab tak yehi toh karta aa raha hai woh... Aage bhi
yehi karte rahe...? aur iss nayi custom se hamare Khandaan ka naam aur roshan
kare...? Yehi chahti hain aap...?? (said very angrily)
S - (Her tone changed as she realised she would
have to tone down a bit. But she could not let SAMRAT be blamed
for something he had not done. In a softer than earlier tone, she
said...) Aap mujhe galat samajh rahe hain... Maine aisa
kuchh bhi nahin kaha... Kyunki,main jaanti hoon aisa kuchh nahin hua hai...
Ussne khud bataya mujhe...woh kisi ladki ke saath nahin reh raha tha...
sirf,kuchh logon ki kahi hui baaatoon ki wajah se main apne bete par shaq nahin
kar sakti... Mujhe uss par poora bharosa hai.
- Ho sakta hai aap yaa
SAMRAT jo keh rahe hain woh,sach ho...Ho sakta hai yeh sirf 1
Afwaah [Rumor] hi ho...Par,hum
logon ko baatein karne se toh nahin rok sakte...?? Hamein unhin ke beech rehna
hai... aur,Aap shayad bhool rahin par,Maine kabhi bhi SAMRAT ko
kuchh karne se nahin roka...
Woh Family Business se alag
apne talent ke basis par , kahin bahar Job karna chahta tha... Maine usse
ijazzat di...woh apni pasand ki ladki se shaadi karna chahta tha...maine kuchh
nahin kaha..aur usse 3 saal diye... aur,inn 3 saaloon mein usne kya kiya...?
Main ab yeh nahin jaan na chahta... lekin,bas ab bahot hua...Main usse aur
azaadi nahin de sakta... Usse ab Shaadi karni hogi...aur woh bhi hamari pasand
ki ladki se...
S - (said softly)
Main aapki baat samajh rahi
hoon... Aapko kya lagta hai..main SAMRAT ka ghar baste hue
nahin dekhna chahti...? Lekin sirf apni chahat ke liye hum SAMRAT
ke view ko toh nazar andaaz nahin kar sakte...
Hamein jaan na hoga ki,aakhir
woh kya chahta hai...? Aakhir kuchh toh aisa hoga...jiski wajah se usne ab tak
kisi ko shaadi ke liye pasand nahin kiya...? Hum nahin jaante ki,woh apni life
partner mein kya chahta hai...toh,bina kuchh jaane hum uski zindagi ka sabse
bada faisla kaise kar sakte hain...??
- Toh kya aapko lagta hai
ki,main uska dushman hoon...?? Kya main uska achha-bura nahin soch sakta...??
Kya mujhe uski khushiyoon ki parwah nahin...??
- Nahin..maine aisa nahin
kaha..aur naa main kabhi aisa soch sakti hoon... Par,kya aapko khud bhi lagta
hai ki,YAMINI mein iss ghar ki bahu banne ki qualities
- Main Aapki baat samajh
raha hoon SUDHA...!! Main maanta hoon, YAMINI...
ISHITA jaisi nahin hai...woh modern khyaalon waali ladki hai... unka
rehan-sehan hamare ghar ke rehan-sehan se bilkul alag hai... lekin aap yeh kyun
bhool rahi hain ki, SAMRAT bhi BRIJ jaisa
nahin hai... uski soch hamari soch se kahin zyada advance hai... Hamein uss
ladki ke baare mein bhi sochna hoga,jo SAMRAT se shaadi kar
uski zindagi mein aayegi... 1 simple,seedhi-saadi ladki kya SAMRAT
ke badlte mood aur liking ko handle kar paayegi...? Kal agar
SAMRAT ko koi aur ladki pasand aa gayi toh uska kya
ko, sirf apni Dosti ko mazboot karne ke liye nahin chuna hai... I know,woh donon
college aur MBA ki study mein saath-saath the... Woh ek-dusre
ko jante hain...samajhte hain...aur unn Pictures ko dekh kar saaf lagta hai
ki,ek-dusre ko pasand bhi karte hain...phir,Main kahaan galat hoon...?? Galat
toh tab hota, agar main SAMRAT ki shaadi apni khushi ke liye
kisi simple,traditional ladki se karne ko kehta...
- Shayad aap apni jagah
sahi hain.. Mujhe aapse koi shikayat nahin... Kyunki,main jaanti hoon...Aap
SAMRAT se kitna pyar karte hain... iss liye,Aap wohi decision
lenge jo uske liye better hoga... lekin,phir bhi aap se itna kehna chahoongi ki,
jo bhi karna...kaafi soch-samajh kar karna...yeh hamare bete ki khushiyoon ka
- Aap uski fikr na
karein...Maine SAMRAT ke liye jo bhi faisla kiya hai...kaafi
soch samajh kar hi liya hai...Iss liye ab iss matter par aur discussion nahin
hoga...Main ab iss matter par kuchh aur nahin sunn na chahta...
walked out in anger. SUDHA Jii kept looking at him till he
disappeared from her view. She sat on the bed and wiped the stray tear that
rested on her cheek. Her fingers entwined, she kept her hands on her knees as
she thought... (( Jaanti hoon ki,aap
kabhi SAMRAT ka bura nahin chahenge... par,pata nahin
kyun...mera dil keh raha hai ki, jo ho raha hai...woh bhi sahi nahin hai...
shayad SAMRAT jo chahta hai..hum woh samajh nahin pa rahe...
darrti hoon ki,kahin aapki zidd,uski khushiyaan khatm na kar den... Ab toh sirf
yeh hi pray karoongi ki,Jo ho...woh achha ho... Mere bete ko woh hi mile jo uske
liye behtar ho... ))
shut her eyes as she said this. Sighing, she stood up and started to clear the
mess in the cupboard. But her mind was not at peace. Something was distracting
her... something was not right... was her husband taking a wrong decision?? Was
she not able to understand something?? Unable to concentrate on the work, she
simply shut the cupboard and left the room to go the terrace... for some fresh
