“ragini ji….ya jo aap aj kal nain matakaa kar rhe han…ya aachi baat nhe ha….(dear ragini! whatever you are doing now a days.this is not good)”swara said in serious voice.ragini covers her mouth at her language.
“ya alfaaz aapko kis na sikahen haan….(who taught you these words?)”ragini said in hell worried voice.
“ak khatoon hamara pass ain the or mujah khana lagain…hum aapni dost ko smajahti kun nhe han.aisa ak daku ka sath nain matakaa karta howa sharam nge aati…..(one woman had come to me and said…why don’t i say anything to you.don’t she feel shame while falling in love with one robber)”swara said laughing lightly.
ragini’s face turned red because of anger.
“kon the wo khatoon…aap na ussa kuch nhe kaha…(who was she?…you didn’t say anything to you?)”
“hum na unhen kaha ka aap bht aachi han bas zaaban kainchi ki tarah chalti ha…(i told her you are very nice but your tongue is like scissor)”
“or kia kia kaha ha hamara baara main…(what she said else about me)”
“wo kah rhen the ya jo daku hota han wo bht rangeen mizaaj hota han…rangeen mizaaj matlab….(she was saying these robbers
“humen nhe pata…(i don’t know..)”ragini said avoiding her eyes.
“agar aap na hamen na bataya to phir hum aap ka kaan(ear) ka nicha ak bajaain ga….(if you didn’t tell me its meaning then i will give you tight slap under ear)”swara said theartening voice.ragini beats her forwhead at her words.
“shahzaadi ji!…apko ya sab alfaaz zaib nhe deta han…aapko ya nhe bolna chahiya.agar apki dadi jaan na ya saab alfaaz sun liya, wo to ussi waqt Allah ko piyaari ho jain gi…..(princess you should not speak such words…if your grandmother heard she will die at that instant)”ragini said in worried voice.
“humen ya saab bolna main baara maaza aa raha ha….(i am enjoying a lot while speaking these words)”swara said giggling.
“aap ya maat boohlen aap ak shahzaadi han…..or aisi khaawateen(women) sa door rahen….(don’t forget you are princess and stay away from auch women)”ragini said.swara nodded obediently.ragini thought to take a good class of that women and lay down to sleep.
“aap shahzaadi han…(you are princess?)”kavita asked with crossed arms.swara tried to say something but kavita stops her.
“jhoot bolna ki koi zarorat nhe ha…main na ap ki or ap ki dost ki batien sun li han….(there is no need to lie…i had heard your and your friends talk)”
“dosrpn ki batien sun na bohat bori baat ha….(it is bad manners to hear others talk)”
“bohat suna ha ap ka bara main…(i have heard a lot about you)”
“hum na bhe bohat suna ha apna bara main…(i also have heard a lot about myself)”
“badshah salamat ka paigaam aaya ha…aapko reha kia jai warna wo hum par hamla karen ga…..(king had send message….if we didn’t set you free he will attack on us)”kavita said in serious tone.swara gets little worried but don’t show it to her.
“shahazaadi ji….kia aap janti han,hum ya sab loot mar kun kar rha han…(princess do you know why are we doing this robbery)”
“nhe humen nhe maloom…(no….i don’t know about it)”
“sanskar ka baba iss saltanat ka badshah tha…unka chota bhai na unka ka qatal kia or khud badshah ban gai…us waqt sanskar bht chota tha….unka chacha na sab ka qatal kia…unka chota bhenian, bhai,maa…..humarai ya larai haq ka liya ha…..hamari foj itni bari nhe ha jo mughal jaisi bari saltnant ka muqabla kar saken…. (sanskar’s father king of this state….his younger brother killed him and became king himself…he had killed everyone,his sisters,brother and mother…we are fighting for our rights….our army is not that much which can fight with large army of mughal state.)”
“aap hum sa kia chati han….(what do you want from me?)”
“khuda ka liya aap yahan sa chali jain,hamari itni saalon ki mahnat barbad na karen….(for God sake,leave from here…don’t waste our years work)”
“sanskar ji ko yaa baat pta ha……(do sanskar know about this)”
“hum phala aap sa baat karna chati the…phir unko batain ga….(i wanted to talk with you first then i will take with him)”
“unko ya baat hamara jaana ka baad batana….warna wo humen nhe jaana dain ga….(tell this when i will leave from here…otherwise he will not let me go)”
kavita’s heart shrunk completely,sensing so much trust in her voice.
“agar unko nhe baatain ga….to aap yahan sa kaisa jain gi?….(if we will not tell him then how will you go from here?)”
“wo aap hum par chor dain…(leave that on me?)” swara said with smile.kavita stares at her face then nodded and turned to leave but swara stops her.
“kavita ji…aak baat kahen agar aap bora na maana to?…(kavita should i say something…if you don’t mind)”
“hum kismat main bht yakeen rakhta han, jo hamari kismat main hata ha wo humen hi milta ha or jo hamari kismat main nhe hota wo humen kabhi nhe milla ga,ya hamara yakeen ha…..(i believe in destiny a lot…whatever is in our destiny we will get it any how and which is not in our fate,we will never get it…this is my belief)”
“kia kahna chati han aap…..(what you want to say)”kavita said,trying hard to control her anger.
“aap khud bht samajh dar han…(you are intelligent yourself)”
Kavita just leaves from there.swara sighed sadly.
“aap ko hum har jaga dhoond raha han or aap yahan han…(i am finding you every where and you are here?)”
“aap soi nhe han abhi tak….waisa to soona ka liya aap har waqt tiyar rahti han….(you didn’t sleep till now…in usual days you are always ready to sleep)”
“mazaq na uraain aap hamara…(don’t make fun of me)”swara throw daggers at sanskar.he chuckles.
“ya to wohi manhoos ghora ha..jis na humen giraya tha…(this is that ominous horse which made me fall)”swara said,looking at horse with narrowed eyes.
“yaadaasht thori kamzoor ha aapki…mera ghora na aap ko nhe giraya tha…aap khud koodi the…(your memory is weak..my horse didn’rtmake you fell…you jumped yourself)” sanskar said,caressing his horse.
“matalb aap humen utha kar lai tha……sharam nhe ai aapko ak bahoosh larki ko utha ka la ai….(its mean you had bring me here….didn’t you feel shame by bring a faint girl)”
“agar hum aap ko wahan chor aata…to humen aap sa mohabbat kaisa hoti….(if i had left you there then how would i have fallen for you)”
“baat badalna koi aap sa sikha…(people should learn from you how to change talk)”swara said shaking her head but a sweet smile was playing on her lips.she removes one taweez(a pious thread) from her nexk,holds sanskar’s hand and start tying it around his wrist.
“kaala jadoo kar rhen ha mujh par…(doing black magic on me)” sanskar said in teasing voice.
“app ko hum chirail lagta han…jo kaala jadoo karti ha….(am i look witch to you who will do black magic on you)”swara said while throwing daggers at him.sanskar opens his mouth to say something but swara stops him with raised hand.
“ya hamari dadi jaan na diya tha unho na bht ayaat parha kar phooka han is par…..taka Allah har waqt hamari hifaazat kar saka……(my grandmother had given this to me.she had read many Ayaat on it so that Allah should protect me always)”
“aap ki hifaazat ka liya diya tha…mujah kun da rhe han…(she has given this for your protection.why are you giving me this?)”
“islya taka Allah ap ki hifaazat kara…dadi jaan humen or bana dan gi….(so that Allah can protect you…granny will give me another)”swara said with smile.sanskar stares at thread.
“shukriya kon kaha ga?…(who will say thanks?)”swara asked while putting hands on waist.
“shukriya apka ….ab ja kar so jain…(thank you so much…now go and sleep)”sanskar said while bowing his head a little.swara hugs him and closed her eyes.sanskar feels her behaviour strange but keeps hand on her back.
“hum aap sa bohat mohabbat karta han…( i love you a lot)”swara whispered with closed eyes then breaks hug.
“swara ji…ap to aisa baat kar rhe han jaisa kahen ja rhe hun…..(swara you are talking as if you are going somewhere)”sanskar said chuckling.
“aap hi kahta han…hum mohabbat ka izhaar nhe karta…(you only says i don’t express my love)”
“kahna ki zarorat nhe ha…apki aankhen bht kuch bolti han…(no need to say anything…you eyes speaks a lot)”sanskar said and kissed on her forehead.swara smiles,turns and leaves.sanskar’s heart beat with unknown fear but he avoids it and get back to his work.
“sanskar….wo or ragini kahen bhe nhe han….(sanskar she and ragini are no where)”lucky said worriedly.last moment with swara passed throught sanskar’s brain.he looks at the thread and his jaws get ticked in anger.
“jis parahdar na raat ko jagna tha us ko bolao….(the soldier who had duty last night call him)”sanskar said in steely voice.
“sanskar us bichara ka kia kasoor ha…..hamara ilaaqa abhi mahfooz ha islya wo soo jata ha….(sanskar what is mistake of him….our area is safe therefore he sleeps)”kavita said worried for soldier.
“hamara mamla main mat bolen….(don’t speak in my matter)”sanskar said angrily.
“Ya Allah! hamari wajah sa kisi or ko kun saza mila…(Allah!..why should anyone else get punishment because of me?)”kavita thought worriedly.she quickly goes after lucky,leaving furious sanskar.
“lakshya!…khuda ka liya sanskar ko kaho us parhradar ko kuch na kaha…..(lakshahya….for God sake ask sanskar not to do say anything to soldier)”
“do kaidi bhaag gain han kavita….kaisa kuch na kaha….(two captives have escaped kavita…why he shouldn’t say anything to him)”
Kavita tells him everything.laksya stares at her sister in disbelief.
“aap na jhoot bola ussa….humain to koi aisa paigam nhe milla….(you lied to her…we didn’t get any message like this)”
“mera pass iska illawa koi or rasta nhe tha……(i didn’t have any other option)”
“aap meri bari bhen han,main zada kuch nhe kah sakta aapko…lekin aap ak aisa insaan ko hasil kar ka kia karen gi jis ka dil main koi or ha…is baat par goor karna…..(you are my elder sister,i can’t say anything to you but what will you do after getting such person who has already someone in his heart….think about it)”lakshya said and walks back to sanskar.
“shukar ha khuda ka…appka chara dakhna to naseeb howa….(thank God…i got to see your face)”
“aap kaisi han ammi jaan….(how are you mother?)”swara said and bowed like a princess.she hugged swara.
“Aapko khuda ka waasta ha…dobara iss tarah gussa ho kar kahin mat jai ga….aap jis sa cahen gi uss sa aap ki shaadi hogi……(you have swear on God…never leave like this again….you will marry with whom you want.no one will force you)”
“maafi chati han ammi jaan…appko bohat preshan kia hum na….(pardon me mother…i troubled you a lot)”swara said in apologized tone but get a little bit confuse.
“aaba jaani kahan han….(where is father?)”
“aapni khawab ghaa main han…*he is his room)”
“hum mil ka aata han….(i will go and meet him)”
Malika nodded and swara left.guards tells swara to inside and she enters inside and bowed in front of him.
“kahan chali gai the aap….kitna preshan tha hum aapka liya…..(where you had gone…i was so worried for you)”shekhar said and sign her to sit beside him.
“wahan gai tha jahan hamari kismat humen laa gai the….(i was gone there where my destiny took me)”swara said and smiled remembering sanskar.
“hum na suna ha….aap apni ammi jaan sa jhagra kar ka gai the….kia ya sach ha….(i have heard you left after fighting with your mother….is this true?)”
“g ya sach haan….uska ka liya hum maafi bhe maang chuka han….(yes..its true and i had asked for forgiveness also)”
“agar aap ko shahzaada akram sa shaadi nhe karni the…aap humen batati,is tarah gaib hona ka kia matlab ha….(if you didn’t want to marry princess akram then would have told me….what is the way to get vanish like this)”
“maafi chata han aaba jaani…lekin humen shahzaada akram bilkul passand nhe han.wo bohat hi ghamandi han…humen aisa insaan sa bilkul shaadi nhe karni…jin ko apna illawa kuch nazar nhe aata……(pardon me father but i don’t like prince akram…he is very arrogant.i don’t want to marry such person who can’t see anyone except himself)”swara explained her point in very obedient way.
“aap ki zandagi ha…aap ko pora haq ha,apni zindagi ka faisla lena ka…(this is your life.you have full right to take your life decisions)”
“bari ammi jaan bohat khaafa hun gi….unka bhai ka beta han wo….(elder mother will get upset…he is son of her brother)”
“unki fikar na karen…un sa hum baat karen ga…(don;t worry about her…i will talk too her)”
“sukriyra abba jaani!….(thanks you father)”swara said and gets up but thinks about something and again sit down.shekhar looks at her with smile.
“koi farmaish…(any wish)”shekhar said,knowing her nature.
“hum mughal saltanat ka badshah na….aapki madad ka liya behja ha or shahzaadi swara na aapka liya ya paigam diya ha….(king of mughal state had send us for your help and princess swara had send this message for you)”one chief soldier said and give sanskar a rolled paper.
sanskar looks at it with anger filled eyes.he was really hurt with her act.he thinks for sometime then takes it and unfolds it.
“hum jaanta han aap hum sa khaafa han or hona bhi chahiya…lekin agar hum aapko bata deta ka hum ak shahzaadi han to kia aap hum sa mohabbat karta…..jistarh agar aap humen utha kar na la jaata to hum aap sa mohabbat na kar pata……or wahan sa bina aapko batai jaana ki hamari ak wajah the lekin hum aapko bata nhe sakta….umeed karta han aap hamara tufha qabool karen ga…..hum aapki kaamiyabi ka liya dua karen ga……….(i know you are angry from me and you should be but if i had told you i am princess then would you have fallen for me….the same way if you had not taken me there then how would i have fallen for you……and i had reason for leaving from there without telling you but i can’t tell….but i hope you will except my gift….i will pray for your success)”
“aapni shahazaadi sa jaa kar kahen.mujah uski ahsaan ki zaroorat nhe ha…(tell your princess i don’t need her favor)”sanskar said angrily.that soldier smiled.
“hans kun rhe han….koi mazaq kia ha hum na…(why are you laughing…have i cracked a joke?)”
“shahzaadi ji na kaha ha aapko gussa bohat aata ha throa bardasht karen…..(princess said…you get angry frequently…bare a little)”
Sanskar opens his mouth to say something but lakshah tell them to go to practice area.sanskar looks at him angrily.he ignores him.
“aaslam o alikum” swara greeted everyone and sit for breakfast.
“kabhi to jaldi uth jaya karen…shahzaadi swara….(princess swara anytime wake up early)”bari mailka said in taunting voice.
“maafi chata han bari ammi jaan…kal sa jaldi uthan ga….(pardon me elder mother…from tomorrow i will wake up early)”
“pata nhe yeo kal kab ai ga….(don’t know when that tomorrow will come)”she said in taunting voice.swara can understand her anger therefore didn’t said anything otherwise she also had answers.
“shahzaadi aap ka ak aachi khabar ha….jin logon ki madad ka ap na siphai bhijwai tha wo jang jeet chuka han or kal un ki taaj poshi ha…..(princess i have a good news for you…for whom you had send soldiers they had won and tomorrow is his coronation day)”shekhar said in plain voice.swara forgot to eat anything.he looks at him while her face was beaming with happiness.
“ya to bohat aachi khabar ha…(this is very good news)”swara bend on her plate.
“hum chata han aap wahan jai hamari taraf sa…hum kuch kaam ha….(i want you to go there as my representative.i have some work)”
Swara just nodded
“hum kaisa lag rha han….(how am i looking?)”swara asked from ragini while seeing herself in mirror.(she is wearing same pink dress as in picture)
“aap bohat aachi lag rhe han….Allah aapko bori nazar sa bachai….(you are looking gorgious…Allah should save you from bad eyes)”ragini said with bright smile.
“wo hum sa bohat khaafa honga…pta nhe humen jaana bhe chahiya ya nhe….hamari wajah sa unka kushi ka pal kharab na ho jain…..(he will be very upset from me.i am bit confuse…should i go or not…..what if his happy moments ger spoil because of me)”swara said in sad tone.
“wo aapko dakh kar bht kush honga or hamara yakeen karen koi bhe aap sa sada din gussa nhe hosakta…khaas kar wo jo aap sa pyaar karta han….(he will be very happy when he will see you and believe me,no one can get angry from you for a long time…especially those who love you)”ragini said putting hand on her should.
“aap is duniya ki sab sa aachi dost han…(you are world’s the best friend)”
“chalen….(should we leave?)”ragini asked and swara nodded.
“waisa aap bhe bohat aachi lag rhe han…kahin koi bmar hi na jai….(you are also looking very nice….somewhere someone is going to die)”swara said in teasing tone.ragini blushed hard.
Swara entered inside the huge castle,like a graceful princess while ragini was behind him.Hall was filled with people.Many royal families had been there,swara had met them before also.
Meanwhile kavita comes there with one man with her and greeted them.ragini looks at her angrily.swara greeted her back.
“ya hamara mangetar han…(he is my fiance)”kavita introduced the man to them.ragini and swara get surprised.
“aap batain karen hum abhi aata han….(you all talk i will just come)”man said in his soft tone and left.
“jhoot bolna ka liya bohat shrminda han hum….(i am really guilty for lying to you)”kavita said in guilty voice.
“aap ko ahsaas ha ya bohat baari baat ha…warna kuch log to ahsaas bhe nhe karta….(you are guilty its a big thing otherwise some people don’t even care)”swara said with smile.kavita nodded with smile.
“humen laga tha agar aap chali jain gi to sanskar aap sa mohabbat karna chor da ga lekin aap ka jaana ka baad wo to jaisa gussa sa pagal ho gai the…main samajh gai main sanskar ko kabhi haasil nne kar sakti islya hum na ak aisa insaan ka hath tham lya jo mujh sa mohabbat karta ha……(i thought if you will leave sanskar will stop loving you but after your leave he became mad with anger then i came to know.i am not going to get his love thherefore i hold such person’s hand who loves me a lot)”kavita said and looks at her fiance with smile.
“umeed karta han…sanskar aap par gussa nhe karen ga…(i hope sanskar will throw his anger at you)”kavita said and left.
Someone annouce about would be king arrival.
“hum u unhen mana len ga…wo koi janwar thori han jo gussa main aa kar apko kah jain ga….(i will make him up….he is not a animal who will eat you up in anger)”swara thought in brain and tried to calm her heart beat,whose speed was increasing every second.
“ragini ji…hum soch raha tha…hum waapis chalta han.humen unka gussa sa bohat dar lagta ha….(ragini i was thinking we should go back…i am really afraid from his anger)”swara whispered while turning back toward her.
“kuch nhe hoga….(nothing will happen)”ragini said and make her straight.Sanskar had come and he had seen swara also.he was confused why his sight fell on her immediately so many people were there,may be because she was looking very beautyfil or maybe he was waiting to see her.
A man had made him wear crown. whole hall echoed with clapping sound then he was asked to do his first dance as a king.(no drama guys he is a sober person)
Sanskar asked for dance from swara.she bowed and give him hand.he takes her to center of hall and starts dance.other couples also start dancing around them.
sanskar opens his mouth to say something but swara cuts him quickly.
“hum jaanta han aap hum sa bohat khaafa han lekin humen aap ka gussa sa bohat dar lagta.agar aap na humen kuch kaha to hum yahen roona shuru kar den ga…….(i know you are very angry from me but i am very afaraidfrom your anger…if you said anything to me then i will start crying right here)”swara said in threatening voice.sanskar stares at her for some time then nodded.
“theak ha kuch nhe kahta aap sa….(okay i will not say anything to you)”sanskar said in calm tone.after that they danced very silently and ball dance was finished.sanskar thanks her in formal way and leaves.
Swara looks at him and makes cute sad pout then gets angry.she goes toward ragini, who was talking to lakshaya.
“ragini chalen yahan sa…(ragini let’s go from here)”
“kun?…(why?)”ragini asked worriedly,seeing her angry face.
“hamara dil bahr gya ha yahan sa…(i am done from here)”
“aap ko jana ha to jain..meri wali ko kun la kar jaa rhe han…phala bhe yahe kaam kia ab dobara…(you want to leave then leave why are you taking my girl with you…before also you said the same now again)”lucky said in irritated voice.
“theak ha hum khud chala jain ga….(fine i will go myself)”swara said while making face and leaves from there angrily.ragini tried to go after her but lakshya stops her.
“khaaton aap na jain unka peecha…sanskar jai ga…(women you should not go after her.samskar will go)”lakshya said.ragini looks at sanskar who was watching swara to leave but didn’t budged a little.
“wo nhe jaa rhe…shahzaadi bht gussa main ha.kuch kar hi na den aapna sath….(he is not going….princess is very angry.what if she did something with herself)”
“hum kah rhe han wo jain ga….(i am saying he will go)”
Lakshah and ragini stares at sanskar but he was talking to a king.
“wo nhe jaa rhe….(he is not going)”
“kahmoosh….tum khawaaten main bilkul sabar nhe hota….(quite…women don’t have patience at all)”
Meanwhile sanskar excuse himself and goes outside,muttering some curses under breath.
“dekha…kaha tha main na…(see i told you)”
Swara was pacing here and there in anger but eyes were filled with tears.sanskar saw her and sighed in relief.
“yahan kia kar rhe han….(what are you doing here?)”
Swara turns and looks at him then twitches her nose.
“aap ko kia…(why you care?)”
“kitni ajeeb baat ha…chor ka aap humen gain or gussa bhe aap ko ha?….(such a strange thing it is…you have left me and you are angry)”sanskar said in anger filled voice.
Swara looks at him for a second then starts crying.sanskar’s anger fell in seconds.he goes toward her and stands in front of her.
“roo kun rhe han?…(why are you crying?)”sanskar said worriedly.
“daant kar kahta han..roo kun rhe han?…(first scolds then asks why are you crying)”swara said in loud voice between her cries.
“aacha main wada karta hun main doobara nhe dantun ga….aap bas roona band karen….(okay i promise i will not scold you again…you please stop crying)”sanskar said while wiping her tears.
“aap ko andaza nne ha..aap ki us harqat na munah kitna dukh ponchaya or main aapko kuch kah bhe nhe sakta……(you don’t know how much i was hurt becuase of your act and i can’t even say anything to you)”sanskar said in helpless tone.
“humen maaf karden…hum dobara kabhi aap ko chor kar nhe jain ga….(forgive me!…i will never do that again)”swara said holding her both ears.sanskar smiles and hugs her.swara hugs him back.
“hamar khiyal ha humen andar chalna chahiya…(i think we should go inside)”sanskar breaks hug,kissed on her forehead,holds her hand and was going toward castle when swara pulls him back.
“hum appko aapki taaj poshi ki mubark baad dena to bhol gai….(i forgot to give you congratulations about your coronation)”swara said innocently.
“log aap ka bara main sahi kaahta han…aap ak pagal shahzaadi han…(people say right about you…you are a mad princess)”sabskar said and laughed loudly.swara slapped on his chest and makes cute pout.
