Episode 5 – Part 1
Viplav shows a smile remembering those moments but getting awake, he realizes the ashram ladies were looking at him.
Rajlakshmi : At least you got that smile on your face back.
Viplav smiles looking down.
Badi Amma : But… where have you got this from ?
Suddenly Viplav realizes that fact and stands up.
Viplav : (goes towards Rajlakshmi) Rajlakshmi can you give me my phone ?
She hands over the phone to Viplav who immediately checks the number.
Viplav : (looking at his phone) Mahji, someone sent me this by message.
Rajlakshmi : Then call her. May be she would be with Dhaani.
Badi Amma : Yes betha, call her na.
Viplav nods his head and calls that person full tensed. But none answers the call. He tries again but again, no use.
Sita maai : What happened Viplav betha ?
Viplav : Daadi, none is answering.
Rajlakshmi: Try again.
Dhaani was looking at the people when she hears a phone ringing. She looks around her and finally finds a phone on the table right in front of her.
Dhaani : (to herself) This is Maya’s phone.
She looks around for Maya but she was nowhere. The phone still ringing, she decides to answer. She slowly gets up of her chair holding her tummy with on hand and taking the phone in her hand, answers the call and puts it near her ear.
Dhaani : He…
She suddenly stops feeling something strange.
Viplav heard a voice but once it got interrupted, he was confused.
Dhaani tells nothing, but feels. She couldn’t say a word, her breath was restless. And her tears started talking for her while she closes her eyes holding the phone with her two hands.
Viplav didn’t need more time to feel there was someone on the other side, to feel that someone.
Viplav : (talking in his mind) Dhaani!
Dhaani, hearing him calling her name, opens her eyes.
Viplav : (tear in his eye and with courage to speak up) Dhaani?
Hearing him saying her name, the ashram ladies get happy.
Rajlakshmi : (softly) Dhaani!
Badi Amma sees Viplav’s tear and understands his feelings.
Badi Amma : Alright, let’s work. How long will we stay like this ?
Sita maai nods her head understanding her intention.
Rajlakshmi : But I want to talk to her.
Sita maai pats on her shoulder and indicates Viplav. Seeing Viplav’s emotional face, Rajlakshmi gets to understand and smile.
Rajlakshmi : I see! Then ok.
All the ladies go away from there while Viplav was restless. He then slowly goes to his room.
Dhaani was speechless and restless. Not even because she has nothing to speak out. In fact she has a lot to tell him, especially her feelings. But nothing was coming out of her mouth.
Viplav : Dhaani!
She suddenly remembers the incidents that separated them and gets sad.
Dhaani : (talks in her mind) What’s going on Dhaani ? You decided to go away from his life. Then why do you feel so restless to talk to him? Don’t forget, this is for your child’s well-being. Cut the phone!
She gets the phone from her ear and goes to cut the call but each time she goes to, something stops her doing so. Viplav cryingly smiles.
Viplav : Even if you want to, you can never do it Dhaani.
Dhaani hears him and stops trying. She then holds the phone near her ear.
Viplav : Wont you talk to me ? To your Viplav ?
Dhaani : You told it to me right, that there is nothing between us anymore? And that in front of everyone?
Viplav : Do you hate me this much that you don’t even want to talk to me?
Dhaani : You broke our relationship Viplav. You told me that we don’t have anything to talk about.
Viplav makes a fist of his hand.
Dhaani : And I think that it’s better like this.
She goes to cut the call when…
Viplav : Dhaani!
The way he calls her controls each of her movements.
Viplav : I… I am sorry.
Dhaani gets tears.
Viplav : I am really sorry. I behaved so badly with you that day, that God punished me letting me live far away from my wife … and my child.
Dhaani looks on shocked.
Viplav : Dhaani! I want to live with you only. Please come back…
Dhaani : (screaming) MAAI!
The way she screamed shocked him. He gets interrupted hearing some voices from Dhaani’s side.
… : (screams) Dhaani!
Hearing such screams, Viplav gets panicked.
Viplav : Dh… Dhaani!
… (voices from the other side of the telephone, the camera showing Viplav) : Please someone call the ambulance.
… : Maai, it hurts a lot!
… : Dhaani please calm down.
… : Maya, stay with Dhaani and Dulaari aunty I will take out the car.
… : Ok bhaiyaa.
(back to Dhaani’s side)
Dhaani shouts in pain while Dulaari was holding her shoulders to calm her down.
Maya : Don’t worry Dhaani, everything will be fine!
Dhaani : Maya, it hurts a lot. I can’t.
Suddenly Maya hears a male voice and looking around she notices her phone in Dhaani’s hand.
… : (shouts) Dhaani! Why don’t you say anything ?
Maya takes the phone from Dhaani and holds it near her ear.
Maya : Hello!
Viplav : H… Hello! Dhaani ?
Maya : No, I am her friend. Who are you?
Viplav : I am Viplav.
Maya : (with a surprised face) Viplav?
She looks at Dhaani while Dulaari gets shocked hearing his name.
Dulaari : Bachwaji?
Viplav : Hello! Hello!
Maya : Viplavji, Dhaani…
Prem (Maya’s brother) : Maya! Let’s go.
Maya : Yeah.
She keeps her phone in her hand not cutting the call because of tension and they take Dhaani to the hospital.
Two hours later, Dhaani was in the emergency ward when the others were outside tensed.
Dulaari : God! Please save my child and the kids. If you do so, I’ll serve 1008 poor people.
Maya : (puts a hand on Dulaari’s shoulder) Aunty don’t worry. Mother and kids, all will come back to you safe and healthy.
Dhaani was screaming in pain while doctors were trying to get the babies but it was harder
Nurse : Doctor, how will we do this ? This prematurity seems to be quite dangerous for the three of them.
Doctor #1 : I know. Even if we try, we can save only one person among the three.
Dhaani : (shouts) Maai!
Nurse : And we have to do it fast. Patient is struggling in pain.
Suddenly the nurse sees someone standing there, wearing a mouth mask and hospital dress. (the camera shows that person from the back)
Nurse : Who are you?
The doctors look in that same direction.
Nurse : Public is not allowed here.
… : I am not public.
Dulaari : How long will it take ? I am so tensed now.
Radha (Prem’s wife) : Don’t worry aunty. Everything will be fine. Dhaani is under good hands, you don’t need to worry anymore.
Maya : Yes aunty. Now see, everything will be in Dhaani’s favor.
Precap – Dhaani keeps crying and screaming. And slowly, she loses her energy and closes her eyes.
Thanks for reading. Keep commenting and telling your views. First of all, I am extremely sorry for this long wait. But I couldn’t find proper time to get a head start as it permits me to calculate where my story is and I can also shape what I write and take time to write something good. But well as you guys were quite waiting for the next part, so here I am.
Hopefully you liked it. I know it was emotional. But well you might have realised it, that I am an emotional fool who loves such scenes, one person who brings thunders often and doesn’t even let happiness to stay for a long time. So always be ready for anything with me.
Thanks a lot!
With lots of love !
