Kuch na kaha!
“Can I ask you a question? Nandini with slow voice asked Manik
“Yes!”Manik asked while tucking her hair back of ear
“Sir why do you call me Pihu? Why don’t you call me nandini?”
Manik smiled “look I have all frnds relatives all whom I call by names but you are only one who stay here in my heart and special. More over you parents call you Pihu so the one who loves a lot call you Pihu. That’s it”
“In college …….everyone say that you …….”
“You have somany gfs and you …..flurt with all and am I one among … Them?”
Manik looked at her straight he felt like he had a slap on his cheek
“No, they all are friends just friends whom I can’t play around, chat, go to movies, party and hang out but you are one whom I can believe, care, love, think my future with, and want to live with. Pihu! Never ever compair anyone with you. In this world no one is equal to you. Sadana and you both are my life. Somewhere in the bottom of my heart sadana has a place more than you but that doesn’t mean you are less than sadana. If she is my mom who gave my life, you are the reason for my life. Iam clear and always be yours”
Nandini is just starring at him.
“Shall we go to my home? We will get time with sadana”
Both went to Manik’s house.
Sadana received nandini happily.
“I need coffee” sadana shouted
“Ok” Manik replied
“Nandu! Manik prepares best coffee, do you know how to prepare coffee?”
“Wow! It’s great then we can both tourcher him. You know Manik’s chicken biryani is an epic. We will eat our fingers too”
“I don’t know cooking but I will try to learn”
“No need to learn when we have a doctor chef what’s the use to learn?”
“Sadana don’t scare her, Pihu! No need to do anything, I will make everything for you both life long”
“Not four 14members”
“Ya! A basketball team and we both”
Both Manik and nandini looked at her with surprise
“Arey! Your kids”sadana said casually
Nandini dropped her gulp and started to caugh for which Manik started to laugh
Sadana now surprised looked at both
Manik at a point stopped laughing
“Why you guys are laughing Somuch?”
“I will leave mom us waiting for me”nandini said to run away from them.
Manik said “go”
Sadana us totally confused.
Nandini ran away
“What the hell is this Manik?”
“She is kid! And you are expecting kids from here?”Manik laughed
Nandini when reached home sharada was worried for her being late.
“Ma! I went to Manik sir’s house”
“Did his hand plaster removed?”
“Good on that if he was not there the same fracture would have been on your hand we have to be gratitude to him always”
“Go and get fresh up I will serve you snacks”
Nandini went to her room. She went to take bath, while bathing suddenly she remembered about scar, she stood before washbasin mirror and checked her neck its red colour scar but not teeth it’s just lips mark which sucked her neck. She remembered the incident, it made her to giggle. Manik touch is different for her.
Nandini is sleeping in her room, but she is faraway from sleep. “How dumb I was? Chi I made my salf a joker. Manik sir was laughing like hell.”all nite she is feeling bad for her innocence.
Next day Manik had lab he couldn’t meet nandini.
Piya asked nandini about the slight change which she is observing in her. Nandini denied.
Mukhti came to meet nandini. “Sadana said you went in hurry, why don’t you come tomm it’s Sunday we all will have fun”
“Tomm? I will ask mom and say”
“Ok!””when are your exams?”

“Tomm we will have biryani Manik’s biryani”
“Nandu u know cooking?”
“Don’t learn, Manik’s hand has a magic we can die for it”
“Yesterday mom said”
“How do your mom knew?”
“No not my mom! It’s Manik sir’s mom”
Piya and mukhti both made a voice like”oooooooo”
Mukhti hugged Nandini. “You have best in your life see oneday you will remember all these petty things and feel proud of yourself. You know why?”
Nandini looked at her
“Why because Manik gives anything in tons, he has love for you, which is like an ocean. Sadana is so well warm mom she is sweet and sensible. Iam happy for you nandu”
Next day Nandini came to Manik’s house it’s just 9 in the morning. Radha opened door seeing Nandini she asked what?

“Manik sir’s mom?”
“Sadana madam! She is also sleeping. Wait you called her mom? Are you nandu?”
