Hi guys, this is Bela here!
Honestly, your comments are the best! I was worried that half of you may be angry for such a short and late update but your lovely comments made me the happiest person on the earth. As I said, it may take time for the next episode. So I thought to give a promo.
Please do read and comment 😀
Lakshya is in a mobile store. He is seen arguing with a store clerk.
“I have NO idea where this SIM came from in my mobile! Yes, I used it. Only once. To call my wife on the night before Durga Pooja. Yes, I made multiple phone calls to her through this number. I didn’t pay much attention to it then. But now, a man keeps on calling me and saying that he wants to be paid. I don’t even know who he is. Wait, didn’t I just say that I don’t know where this SIM came from? Then there is no question of it being registered in my name. I don’t even have its passcode. NO! I have no idea how I was able to operate it that night!” Lakshya is heard shouting.
The store manager comes and tells him to submit that SIM card to them for inspection.
Lakshya is seen with a sneer on his face. He walks out of the store and opens that SIM and makes a call.
“You fool! Stop calling again and again! This number is with Lakshya now! Take your money from the usual place at 11 pm tonight. And don’t you dare call me again after this!” He growls.
Lakshya’s face is seen getting soft again. He looks around confusedly. “Wasn’t I in the store just now? God! It is happening again! I need to go and see Dr. Sen again.” He says to himself. He then walks back to the store and submits the SIM.
Ragini is seen cleaning the bedroom. She adjusts the bedsheets and pillows and then starts to clear the documents kept on the bedside table. She opens Lakshya’s cupboard to keep them inside.
As she is about to close the drawer, she finds a small wooden box in a corner. Inside, she spots a green medical file with ‘Lakshya Maheshwari’ written on it. She takes it out and opens it.
Name : Lakshya Maheshwari
Age : 24 years
Gender : Male
More sleep, fatigue. Patient feels confused and doesn’t remember some short time periods in life. Reported behaviour of aggression and violence. Extreme mood swings. Suspected Bipolar disorder.
Dr. Shobhit Sen
Ragini frowns. Lakshya is seeing a psychiatrist? She never knew. She read the reports again and found most of it true. Why didn’t he tell her about it? Was it serious? Why were the reports hidden? She calls up the number given on the papers and takes an appointment for the evening.
Lakshya is seen driving his car. He mutters to himself, “Phew! That was close. Today, I was able to stop him from going to Dr. Sen. But I won’t be lucky all the time. I need to destroy those reports before Lakshya or any one else sees them!”
Lakshya’s phone rings. ‘Wifey Calling’ it reads. He smirks. He picks up the call and says in a cheery voice, “Missing me?”
His face is seen transforming. His eyes soften and he replies, “Okay Ragini. I will pick you up at 6. Okay. Bye!”
Lakshya smiles and scratches his head. Saturday was approaching. He needed to make new plans!
Ragini is seen sitting in a clinic with a doctor explaining something to her. She is in tears.
“Mrs. Maheshwari, I suspect your husband is suffering from a Split Personality Disorder. He has two people inside him. Two minds. One which is his normal self, while the other is his alter ego. When he had come six months earlier, I had suspected a bipolar disorder. But when I inspected his case further, his missing lapse of time pointed towards unconsciousness. But he functioned well. And although he is a mild man, there were reports of violence and aggression. I concluded that it must be Split Personality.” He says slowly.
Ragini is seen numb. The doctor shakes her and continues.
“Split Personality Syndrome is reported but is not an established mental disorder. There are doctors around the world who think that such a mental condition doesn’t exist because the foundation of this disorder is some trauma in the childhood. Physical, mental or emotional, anything. In India, many criminals use this as a way to lessen their punishments. But the fact is that it exists. I think your husband is suffering from it. But I don’t understand why he stopped coming or receiving my calls. He gave me this number. Is it his?”
Ragini looks at the number. It seems familiar. She notes it down and leaves.
She is seen crying miserably on the road. While she is waiting for Lakshya, she remembers her moments with him, his revelation of his traumatic past and when she found another SIM in his phone.
She freezes. She takes our the number she noted and compares it. It was the blackmailer’s number!
Ragini is seen sweating. This means that the real Lakshya had no idea that he was suffering from a mental ailment. His ‘alter ego’ knows of it though. And he is the one who was blackmailing her all along!
How was it? Please tell in your comments. The next update may take a week or more. Thank you all for all the love!
P.S. The previous episode had Swalak moments. The next one will have Ragsan! 😀
