Link to previous episode,
Days passed with no traces of improvement in ragini’s life but she was making herself happy with whatever she had and thanked her parents who educated her and helped her stand on her own leg, but the lack of emotional support still ached her heart, there is nothing like family, is there?
She was at home, thinking about how life has taken unexpected, unfair turns jst then she realizes the door knob was automatically unlocking as though someone was trying to break in which made her panic
I was sitting idle when I realized that someone was trying to break in, I didn’t know what to do, My mind went completely blank, I wonder why it doesn’t work at times of emergency rather danger!!! And then I started searching for a vase and finally grabbed one so that I could hit the person’s head, the door started to open increasing my heartbeat and the grip I had on the vase and then……..
What were u trying to do? A girl asked
Ragini dropped the vase : sry………I thought u were some thief trying to break in
Girl: oh really?
Ragini: u should have informed me pia that u were coming or at least rang the doorbell, what was the need to come in like this?
pia: I am ur best best friend!!! And I didn’t want to become formal so
Ragini: so u tried entering casually like a thief?
Pia: yaa!!! Thank god u didn’t hit me !!!
Ragini: oh god!!! how did I miss the chance!!!
Pia: aah how mean?!!!?!?
Both laughed and hugged each other.
Pia: u r mad, u very well know I am the only person who have a duplicate key of ur house, then why did u panic?
Ragini: my brain stopped working
Pia: that’s a serious problem
Ragini: who is that? ( she pointed to a girl standing outside)
Pia: oh ho Anjali come inside
The girl comes in and sits beside pia
Pia: she helps me with the ngo works
Ragini: oh hello, I am ragini!!
Pia: by the how are u miss.ragini?
Ragini: Staying with a family, with parents, with siblings for nearly 24 years, getting pampered by the elder ones, teased by the younger ones, being happy all the time and then ………..due to some bizarre circumstances I am here, alone!!!!! How else do u expect me to be?
Ragini tells with sadness evident in her voice
Pia hugs ragini again
Pia: u don’t sound good like this, come on u r a very brave girl!!!!
Ragini: I am!!!
Pia: but if u r feeling alone u can stay in my…..(house)……….
Ragini: no pia, after going through a lot I have learnt how to be independent!!!, I don’t want to go back to where I started (in a sad tone)
Ragini: but this ‘staying alone’ thing has definitely made me more responsible, I started carrying pepper sprays instead of deos, started paying attention to what is happening around me whenever I travel alone, and most importantly I have learnt how to manage a household and the importance of saving money!!! (in a happy and proud tone)
Pia: wow!!! She smiled at her
Ragini: ok what will u both have?
Pia: coffee!!! U Anjali?
Anjali: me too
Ragini: ok then I will make coffee for u both
Pia: I will use the washroom and come
Ragini starts making coffee just then she notices Anjali standing near the kitchen door
Ragini: u want something?
She nods in a no.
Ragini: why r u standing out? Come in!!!
Ragini: why not?
Anjali: I am impure!!
Ragini was really confused with her reply
Anjali: I am on my monthly cycle (she said in a low tone)
Anjali: I am impure and not allowed to enter kitchen in my house
Oh ya how did I forget there are still people out there with the same old views!!!
Ragini: the cycle is the thing that makes u a WOMAN Anjali !!!!, it never makes u impure and there is no need to feel uncomfortable!!!
Ragini told her, it was indeed true she realized
Ragini: so just chill and come in
Anjali hesitantly comes in and she hands over a cup to her, pia too joins them
Ragini: pia!! I thought u were here to meet me, but I didn’t know u came here to save the money of buying coffee (she asked teasingly)
Pia: oops u came to know the truth!! (she went with the flow)
Ragini hits her playfully and the trio laughed.
They were about to leave,
Pia: can u lend me ur bike?
Ragini: ya of course here r the keys
Ragini: shut up!!! This is nothing in front of what u did for me!!
Pia: I didn’t do anything!!!
Ragini: ok meri maa fine
They wave her a bye and leave.
Courage, confidence, attitude, honesty and pia were the only things ragini still has in her life which helps her cope up with every single difficulty!!! In the world full of sycophants, pia was the only selfless girl who stood with ragini when no one was.
Ragini: thank u pia (she told to herself).
Sometimes the best way to be happy is to let go of the things you tried to hold on, that are no longer good for you.
To be continued…..
