Humrahi ( segment 37 )

Her point of view –
Why is he following me ?? What will I explain about my departure ..? how will I tell him about that man..
.I suddenly felt hand on my waist..urrgghh it’s my fiance again ..Why does he keep touching me?? I think I told him to take things slow…Why dosent he understand ?? Is love all about the body ?? Will he ever see something beyond it..? Like maybe my desires…my wishes..
his point of view –

I gathered up all the courage and walked up to her ..she was talking to an old aunty with her fiance following her like a tail…
He kept touching ..kbi he held hands..kbi on her back..caressing it..Kbi on the waist..
I am not able to control myself…and the distance she is keeping from me is breaking me from within..
Oh God..! Why is love so complicated..
Finally I am standing in front of her..She smiled at me ..like she did at other guest..
Here she is my life .. and for her I am nobody ??

Suddenly her fiance walked up to us..we exchanged pleasantries.”.Ohh so you are the best friend she keeps talking about ..
I am so jealous of u man” ..He said..
Yea right ..! jealous of me..He is holding my life in his hands .. i am the one who should get jealous but it’s him ..
“I am just lucky” I mutter trying to push away the anger in my head..
her point of view –

His after shave..! damn all these years and still it has the same effect on me ..like it had on the morning I shaved for him..My fantasy was broken by his thoughts ..
“I need to talk to you” he said .. “uuhh ooohh” was all I could answer in return ..sensing my nervousness in front of my fiance ..he asked him wether he could steal me for a little while ??
Little while ?? I wish he takes me with him forever ..I happily went with him..
I followed him to my room and he looked at me teary eyes.asking me why I was doing this ??
I stood their numb.. playing with the edge of my dupatta…
his point of view –

what’s wrong with u ?? ans me … I yelled at her..but she dint budge ..she just kept playing with the edge of her duppatta lost in thoughts …
When she looked up her face was determined…”I guess you should move on and stay happy “she said…like it was all so easy for her…
Why does she always do this ??” why is it always you who decides wether we will be together or not ?? “I screamt at her…removing all my frustration at her….
I then regretted my decisions moments later as she burst out crying and headed out of the room to the hall..

Damn !
Her point of view –
Why is he making things difficult ?? I told him to move on…But no ..he wont listen to me..Why is he so stubborn ??.
Now again he is walking up to me..I want to hide .. but I can’t this my engagement ..people are here to see me..I so wish that he stops but the next moment he did something that was least expected ..he asked my fiance for a dance with me..

his point of view –
The only way to gauge her feelings were to dance with her..so I asked her fiance for a dance..surprisingly he readily agreed..she had no option but to step on the dance floor with me..
The lights dimmed and I led her to the dance floor..
Khamoshiyan aawaaz hainTum sun’ne to aao kabhi
Chhukar tumhe khill jaayengi Ghar inko bulaao kabhi
Beqarar hain baat karne koKehne do inko zaraa..Khamoshiyan.. teri meri khamoshiyan
Khamoshiyan.. lipti hui khamoshiyan
she looked at me shocked…
her point of view –
Kya uss gali mein kabhi terajaana hua

Jahaan se zamaane ko guzre zamaana hua
Mera samay toh wahin pe hai thehra hua
Bataaun tumhe kya mere sath kya kya hua
and I saw a lone tear make way from the corner of his eyes ..
I dint want to hurt him…but he is making it difficult for himself and for me…
Khamoshiyan ek saaz haiTum dhun koi laao zaraa
Khamoshiyan alfaaz hain Kabhi aa gunguna le zara
Beqarar hain baat karne ko Kehne do inko zaraa.. haa..
Khamoshiyan.. teri meri khamoshiyan Khamoshiyan.. lipti hui khamoshiyan
Nadiya ka paani bhi khamosh behta yahaan
Khili chandani mein chhipi lakh khamoshiyan

Baarish ki boondon ki hoti kahaan hai zubaan
Sulagte dilon mein hai khamosh uthta dhuaan
I flinched at the lyrics ..he noticed it and unknowingly smiled..
Khamoshiyan aakaash hai Tum udne toh aao zara
Khamoshiyan ehsaas hai Tumhe mehsoos hoti hai kya
Beqarar hain baat karne ko Kehne do inko zara.. haa.
.Khamoshiyan.. teri meri khamoshiyanKhamoshiyan.. lipti hui khamoshiyan
Our trance was broken by that man’s voice..i went and hid behind the nightmre guy while he look confused…
The man walked upto me and grabbed my wrist making me wince in pain…
his point of view –

who was he?? and how can hold her like that?? cant he see that she is in pain..?
Cant anybody in this hall see that??
i tried to protest but she shut me up with her eyes..
The man is dragging her back to the stage now .. and then it happened..
The love of my life belongs to someone else now…

She is engaged..!
