Have you had an awkward moment in your life? Well, if yes I would tell you that this is the most awkward moment of my life, the BAAP of them all. Sona & I are in the same car but none of us is speaking. I can just catch her stealing glances & we smile awkwardly. Hmmm … Kuch to karna hoga warna this whole ride & especially Asha Aunty’s efforts would be wasted.
I know where she lives now but she doesn’t know that I know it. Now don’t you think that I’m a stalker … Okay fine many days I’ve just blankly opened her profiles on social networking sites & I’ve sat outside her home for hours to see her UNTIL I got to know that she’s still in Varanasi. Don’t look at me like that reader even she has been stalking otherwise how would she know of my NGO & she’s been donating regularly. She can be mad at me but I know there’s no room for hate in between us. Benefit of doubt utha le Dev, it’s time to turn the steering in the direction of the good old days.
SONA: Excuse me … Its great that you have taken the pain to drop your friend’s would be fiancé but do you know where I stay?
Dev: Sona … I know you are mad at me but whatever the scene may be you are MY FRIEND first & I can do this for you
Sona: Excuse me I don’t know you
Dev: Are you out of your mind?
Sona: Sorry I guess you are having a misunderstanding
This trick will not work Ms. Bose, I am in full Mr. Devrath Dixit mode & I will get what I want … Play games Sonakshi but I will make you own up
Dev: Oh!!! Maybe …
I said that with a careless expression but her expression was priceless, she was taken aback. HAhaha!! The ball is in my court.
Dev: I think you are right
Look at her face … She has lost the game
Dev: You know what my Sona was something else not like you …
Sona: Excuse me
Dev: Haan!! I mean just look at you naam Sonakshi Bose rakh lene se koi meri Sona ko match nahi kar sakta
Sona: You are insulting me
Dev: I am stating facts
Dev: Yup!! My Sona was …
Look at her expression; she is waiting me to praise her. Chalo … let me please her
Dev: Sonakshi … She came in my life like a fresh breeze of wind & changed my life. She was like a parking spot in heavy traffic. No fuss, no pretence, just that serene aura of hers which captivated my mind. She has that … that …
Dev: Never mind
Sona: Tumi Eakdum …
I should say ‘smart, intelligent & handsome’ but I want to catch her off-guard
Sona: Complete it
Sona: Won’t you say ‘Smart,intelligent & handsome’
Dev: Why should I? I said that with my Sona not with strangers like you.
Sona: Excuse me
Dev: You are not my Sona … You are a …
Dev: Never mind
She was fuming with anger & I wondered that in her temper she may leave my car. So, I switched on the FM
Aaoge jab tum o saajna
Angna phool khilenge
Jhoom jhoom ke
Do dil aise milenge
She shifted in the seat, uncomfortable. I started speaking
Dev: This was my Sona’s favorite song
Sona: Yes mine too …
Dev: I don’t think so. Why are you trying to act as my Sona?
Dev: Go on
Sona: Never mind
Dev: I’ll tell you why
Dev: You want to woo me
Dev: I am a man & you want to woo me. Woman.
Sona: Lame that was. The worst PJ I’ve ever heard
Don’t mind my jokes reader. I need to break her shell. I’m taking her to Punjabi Bagh, the locality where we lived earlier. She now lives in Janakpuri. Hope she doesn’t notice.
Sona: I guess we are on the wrong track
Dev: Is it?
Sona: Yesss … Stop … Ruko abhi
I kept driving for a while & used plan B. I stopped the car abruptly.
Sona: Good. Now turn
Dev: Because the car has broken down
Sona: You’ve got to be kidding
Sona: Uffff!! Now what?
Dev: Do one thing stand near that tree I’ll try to fix it.
She got down from the car. I opened the engine trying to fix it & I called Jatin. Good thing I have a Bluetooth device with me otherwise she would have guessed that I’m upto something.
Dev: Where are you?
Jatin: Teri Bhabhi ko Pujo Pandal ghuma rahu hu
Jatin: Why are you whispering? Anything serious?
Dev: I guess you are busy. Is Vicky in Delhi?
Jatin: Is it anything important?
Dev: I’ve met Sona
Jatin: What?!? Where?
Dev: Long story … I need a favour … If possible spare 15 minutes
& I told him my plan
Jatin: Seriously? You want to do this?
Dev: Yes … I know it’s silly but everything is fair in love & war
Jatin: Fine I’ll come.
Dev: Please tell Juhi Bhabhi that I’m really sorry for disturbing you guys … you are posted at different places because of your job as an army officer & can’t spend ample time with her but I need your help badly
Jatin: Don’t worry she’ll understand … I’m lucky to have her
Jatin leaves no stone unturned when it comes to praising Bhabhi but I didn’t had that much time. I had to get started with my plan so I told him that I’ll talk to him later & disconnected the call.
Sona was standing near a tree; I went towards her slowly & looked in her eyes with my piercing gaze. She stood still. I went near her & pressed my forehead against hers. She started breathing faster, I must be making her nervous with my breath hitting her face.
A blinding light fell on us. I parted from her & turned to face the intruder. I looked at Sona who was bewildered to see who it was
IT WAS THE POLICE
Cop: Lajja hai? ( Do you have some shame?)
Dev: Nahi Sona hai … Dekho (No I have Sona … see)
I pointed at Sona mischievously.
Cop: Ye gadi tumhari hai? (Is this car yours?)
Sona: Iski hai (It’s his)
She said while pointing at me. She must have sensed the danger & started moving away.
Cop: Oh Madam ji … Kaha jaa rahi ho? Ek to no parking me gadi park karte ho upar se yahan ped ke niche khade ho ke ye … ye sab karte ho (Where are you going Madam? First you parked you car in no parking & then you are doing all … all this under the tree)
Sona: no no no … it is not what it looks like … Dev kuch bolo ( Say something)
Dev: Inspector saheb aap apne gadi ka darwaza kholo (Let’s get into the car officer)
Cop: Chalo chalo
Sona whispered: Dev, ye tum kya kar rahe ho? (What are you doing?)
Dev: Nyaya ka saath de raha hu (Supporting justice)
Sona: Nyaya ki murti banane ka bukhar kyu sawar ho gaya tumhare sar par? (Why do you want to do this?)
Dev: Dekho jo meri Sona thi na wo jhoot nahi bolti thi … Tum to Sona ho nahi khud hi jhooth bol do (Because My Sona never lied but you are fake Sona you can lie)
Cop: Chapad chapad band karo & gadi me chalo (Stop your nonsense & get into the car)
We got into the police van & started moving towards the police station. Finally, after a 10 minutes drive we reached the station & were locked up in jail. Sona sat down on a wooden plank & I sat down beside her.
Dev: The place is good.
Dev: Ms Fake Bose … we will have to stay here together …
Sona got up from that seat.
Sona: I don’t want to stay here
Dev: Ik vaari aa bhi jaa yaara … Ik vaari aa
Sona: Tumhe gaane sujh rahe hain? (Why are you singing?)
Dev: Just getting familiar to the place
Sona: For how long will we be locked up?
Dev: Yahi kuch 5 mahine (Some 5 months)
Sona: 5 months
They heard some footsteps coming towards their cell.
Dev: Hi Jatin
Dev: So Ms Fake Bose Goodbye
Dev: Because he will get my bail papers ready & you may enjoy
(That rhymed :P)
Sona: & what about me?
Dev: Jatin is my friend … He’ll help me why should we bother about you?
Sona: Mera bhi to dost hai (He’s my friend too)
Jatin: Nahi to aap Ms Fake Bose hain … I don’t know you (No … you are Ms. Fake Bose
Dev: Admit it Sona … leave your ego …
Sona: What? What should I admit? I have not lied
Dev: So Bye Ms Fake Bose … Let’s leave her
Sona: Stop … Okay fine … I’m your Sona
Sona: I’m your friend Sona & the same Sona who …
Sona: Never mind
Jatin: Enough for today … I’ll drop the two of you in my car … Juhi is also waiting outside
Jatin: My wife
Sona: Oh! Congratulations Jatin
Sona went out with Jatin while I stayed back for a second to shake hands with the cop & pay him for his service. I wouldn’t have done all this if she wouldn’t have played the I DON’T KNOW YOU Game… Well it is indeed kuch rang pyar ke AISE bhi
