Sam was still slowly walking on hard ground with her soft feet. She was shocked and broken from the deep inside corner of heart. She remembered all the moments from the happiest to the painful moments-neil’s and radhika’s moments in bird song, her’s and arjun moments, aradhika’s marriage, the last night with neil. The painful tears dried on the soft cheek. The redness of eyes now settled on her whole face. She quickly covered the distance of her short and long journey. Sam now found herself in balcony itself.
Radhika was sitting on bench…holding her train ticket. She cameeans someone who shared a pain with someone. As in, if you share my pain with me, you are my ‘hamdard’.
Of course, since it’s not some physical process or something, it need not always be vice versa, but it’s more like a close friend who understands you and feels bad when you have a problem, and feels good when you do well.
Humdard is made up of hum- prefix, used for ‘those who share’, being added to dard – pain. The same way we add it to many words, to come up with hamsafar/ humsafar [means those who share a safar, a journey], hamraaz/ humraaz [means those who share a secret], and even hambistar/ humbistar [means those who share a bistar, a bed]. You can guess what the deeper meaning where required, I guess. 😉 early very early in this cold morning. The trains rumbled on and on. Soft tears rolled down smoothly on her cheek. She remembered the moments of arjun and hers together and there marraige. These moments were painful and hurted her hell.
A small kid was staring her from far away and saw her soft tears. She didn’t saw him and was lost in her thoughts. The cold of morning now didn’t affect her as the pain of heart was enough to hurt a like hell. That small kid came running to her like a small cute rat running around humans and disturbing everyone but he didn’t seem to care about that much.
“Don’t cry! Mom says everything will be fine”,he said in sweet cute voice while wiping her tears with his soft tiny hands.
“Here, eat this chocolate and smile”,he said while placing a small chocolate in her soft young hands. A little shades of childish smile gradually was spreading on her soft warm lips.
He ran back with the same speed carelessly crossing each and every person around his little energetic heart.
A persons view was shown from somewhere far away.
“This time I will surely get her”,that unknown person said. Only his devilish smile was shown.
Neil was sleeping with his head falling down and down but still finding some sleep in his pain. Sam saw him with his most painful eyes now. She quietly went there and sat beside him…putting his head on her shoulder with the most caring hands.
The pointy rays of sun fall on neil’s face gradually even in quick manner. His eyes opened slowly while blinking a lot. He felt his head on someone’s shoulder and tilted his head to see whose that person who will let a tired child sleep peacefully. He saw her sitting beside him with the most deep eyes.
“Sam..sam”,he mumbled still in sleepy tone.
“Sam it’s you…you went to arjun..ur decision”,he shouted as if she 300 km away from him and moved slightly away from her soft tired body to get a hold of her cheeks. Sam burst out in river of tears.
“Sammy what happened? Tell me, you went arjun..then what happened”,he said while nodding his head continuously to calm her down as she tried hard to speak her tears controlled her now and said many things which she by herself can’t say.
Then she said everything to him in very breathless tone.
“Neil I only love you and want to spend my life with you and only you”, she said in soft touching of her voice.
“Sammm I love you but radhika wants you to marry arjun and arjunnn”,he said.
“Radhika thinks that I still love him and she don’t know anything about us”,she replied back to him in his tone.
After that they both sat beside eachother their back touching and their head rested on each other.
Arjun was beside the sofa and still thinking about how nandini betrayed him and radhika left him like that. She left him forever and forever. Her only presence was enough to settle everything. His phone ranged now. He hurried his steps towards the table with a hope that it’s radhika call. Ohh it was sam calls. Why would radhika call him??. I’m the one who wants her now but why will she want him now after all the pain he gave to her.
He hesitated while attending the call but still he attended it.
“Arjun come to the office right now”,sam shouted.
“Sa..sam”,he mumbled on the phone.
“Right now and fast”,she shouted again.
