Hum Saath Saath Hain Part 9
Akash:Don’t worry Maa.I can understand your feelings.Any mother will think like this. I don’t want to be the managing director.Let Arnav be the managing director.
Prerna was stunned.
She thought:Akash gave up so easily for my happiness?
Rishab:Arnav is not interested in it.He is not ready to take such a big responsibility.
P:Yes.I know.So let Shyam be the managing director.
Rishab was shocked:Shyam?What are you saying Prerna?
P:You also said that Shyam is not your son in law,he is your son.Then why do you feel uneasy?
Rish:Shyam is my son only.But still…
P:If he too is your son why this discrimination?And if Shyam takes over the company it will favour our own daughter Anjali.
Rishab:So you decided to make Shyam the managing director not for him,but for your daughter Anjali.Prerna…you are blinded by your love for your children.
Prer:What is wrong in that?I want Shyam to take over the company.That’s it.
Akash:Papa…don’t argue with maa.Maa is right.Shyam is smart and intelligent enough to handle it papa.Maa is right.
NK was really upset.
Rish:Ok…if this is everyone’s decision then let Shyam be the managing director.
Akash and Payal left the room.
Rishab stared at Prerna:Once I was proud of my family.I was a bit too happy that you loved Akash like your own son.But my happiness vanished in a moment.Today you proved that you are only a step mother.
Prerna’s heart was pricked.
NK:When you said that you don’t want Akash bhaiyya to be the managing director he agreed it so easily.You know why?Because he loves us that much.Can’t you see his love mom?Are you blind?I never expected this from you.
Rishab and NK left the room.
Prerna wept bitterly.
NK went to Akash’s room.He cried hugging him.
Ak:NK,what is this?
NK:I am sorry on mom’s behalf.
Ak:No NK..no.Don’t be angry with Maa.She is right in her place.
NK:Still you support mom.Hope mom will see your golden heart one day.
Payal:Akash…are you sure that you did the right thing?
Ak:Yes Payal.I don’t know what made Maa think like this now.But I am sure that her love for me has not decreased a bit.
Payal was confused.
She thought:Why did Maa behave like this suddenly?
Prerna rang up Shyam.
P:I did as per you said.Akash is no more the managing director of AR companies.I recommended your name and everyone agreed.
Anjali came:Whose call is this?
Shyam cut the call.
Shy:It was from your house.Akash bhaiyya does’nt want to be the managing director.So they have decided to make me the managing director.
Anjali was shocked:Why does Akash bhaiyya suddenly refuse to take over the position?
Shy:I don’t know.
Anj:But why did they chose you to replace him instead of Arnav bhaiyya who is the second eldest in the family?I have to enquire.
Shyam started sweating.
Anjali rang Akash:Bhaiyya,is it true that you refused to be the managing director?
Ak:Suddenly I felt that I can’t manage it.Papa struggled hard to make our company successful.I don’t want to ruin it.
Anj:Why do you think so negatively bhaiyya?We all know that you can do it.
Ak:But I have no confidence and without confidence I can’t take over such a big responsibility.
Anj:But instead of Arnav Bhaiyya why was Shyam chosen to replace you?
Ak:Arnav is not interested and Nk is still immature and Shyam is the best to handle it.
After talking to Arnav Anjali went into deep thoughts.
Shy:What happened Anji?
Anj:I am happy for you.But at the same time I feel very sad for Akash bhaiyya.I don’t know what’s happening is right or wrong.
Shyam said in his mind:Whatever happening is wrong.But I have to be the managing director of AR company at any cost.
Arnav reached home.Prerna ran towards him to hug him.But Arnav stopped him.She was stunned.
Arn:No mom.You lost the right to express love to me when you proved that you don’t love Akash bhaiyya.To be frank I don’t even feel like calling you mom.
Prerna could’nt believe what she heard from Arnav.She was shattered.
Arn:NK rang up and told me everything mom.Rishab threw a party painfully to introduce the new managing director of AR company..
Arnav walked away.Prerna burst into tears.
Rishab who watched it from behind came near her.
Rish:You showed step motherly behaviour towards Akash for your children.Now see…one by one you will lose all your children.
Rishab walked away.Prerna cried a lot.
Arnav went near Akash.He hugged him crying.
Akash caressed him:What is this Arnav?Still you are behaving like a kid.
Arnav looked at Payal:Bhabhi,why did you support bhaiyya’s decision?
Payal:Because Akash can’t be wrong.He can’t bear his mother’s tears.If his mother cries he will feel pain.He did that to wipe his mother’s tears.So I supported him and I will always support him.
Arnav wept:Wish mom had seen your heart bhaiyya. Mom made her son cry…the son who does’nt want his mother to cry.
Akash felt sad:Arnav,never talk like this about our mom.She has her own reason to do this.
Arn:Whatever the reason is she did’nt do right by showing discrimination towards you.Sorry bhaiyya…I can’t support her like you do.
Akash felt upset.
Rishab threw a party to declare Shyam was the managing director of AR company.
Arnav:Khushi,I am really upset.How happy our family was!But suddenly how did mom change?How could she do this to Akash bhaiyya?
Khushi felt upset.
K:Even I am not able to believe that Prerna aunty could do something like to Akash bhaiyya.
Arn:Khushi I feel that this is not our mom,she is someone else.
K:For a moment I also felt that the Prerna aunty I know since childhood is not this.Prerna can’t do this to
Akash bhaiyya.She used to love him a lot.Then how come suddenly she is like this?I still can’t believe this.
Arn:For this I can never forgive her.
Khushi became upset.
She looked at Arnav and held his hand to console him.Idle_
K:Arnav…don’t say like this.I have faith in Devi maiyya.Our family will be much happier than before.
Arn:I hope so Khushi.
Shyam was declared as the managing director of AR companies.
Shyam was not cheerful.
Anjali:Instead of becoming happy and smiling why are you so dim Shyam?
anj:Then smile my dear husband.Enjoy your victory.
Shyam faked a smile.
NK was upset.Lavanya kept her arm on his shoulder:NK….
NK:I am not sad about Shyam reaching the top position.But I can’t tolerate the injustice done towards Akash bhaiyya.
La:I understand NK.And I am also very upset about it.But we can’t change what happened.Right?
And I am sure that everything will be alright.
Lavanya wiped her wet eyes.
La:NK…this is a public function.Everyone will notice us.So try to smile.
NK:Yes,I will fake smile.These days since there is no happiness we are forced to smile artificially.We forgot to smile from our heart.
Lavanya felt upset.
Manorama went near Prerna:Prerna,what is this?You made Shyam the managing director?He is only your son in law.
Prerna:Manorama,first you had problem with Akash being in that position.Now with Shyam too?
Mano:Hello hi bye bye…I meant….you should have made your son the managing director.
Prer:Why don’t you say clearly that you want NK to be in that position..not even Arnav.So that it will favour your daughter Lavanya.
Manorama was embarrassed.
Prerna got angry::Don’t try to brainwash me again.If you come again near me with your dirty advise I will forget who you are.
Prerna walked away.
Manorama was stunned:Hello hi bye bye..for the first time Prerna got angry…that also with me?
Payal looked at Akash:Everything is going as your wish.You are happy now.Right Akash?
Ak:I am very happy to see my mother happy.You are happy?
P:I am happy because you are happy.
Ak:I am lucky to have a supportive wife like you.
They smiled at each other.
