5 years leap
The life separate us, and the time don’t heal us. Hearts apart, we keep hurting us, sometimes unintentionally. We are left alone in a long corridor. We pray to back in time, just a second before to destroy all the hope. When sobs kill the joy, we dreams, we draw a present, a little more beautiful than before, to live where is king. A long tear flow on the face of a women, she cry at her fate.This women is none other Ragini, she has changed, she is very beautiful now, more stylish than before. She wear a beautiful royal blue saree, with her back open. The choli’s color is silver. She have diamond earrings, bracelet. The door open behind her, a lady come to her and touch her shoulder. The women have a beautiful smile in her face, she is not tall, but yet her presence make a calm and peaceful atmosphere. Ragini wipes her tears and turn around. The lady smile and tell
“Ragini, mera baccha, you don’t need to hide your pain toward me. I know the pain you have undergone, aur mujhe yeh bhi pata hai ki iss dard ko tum khabhee bee isse nahi bhool pahenge, lekin tum ke saath rahane ke lie seekhane ke lie hai”
Ragini cry on the lady’s shoulder
” Aunty, why God gave me such a big punishment. Why? ”
“Chup mere bacche, God don’t give us punishment, tumhare nani always told me when God take something from us, he would surely give us something a thousand time better. Stop crying now, you know your dad hate when you cry. Tumto mera strong baccha haina?” Ragini nods then her mom smile at her and add
“Now can we go down, varna you bhai will come to us, and If he see you crying, he would angry at you”
” Chachi ma don’t worry I’m not angry with her, I hate her now, because she know we don’t like when she cry.” Said a voice from the entrance of the room.
” you and hate? impossible, plus Ragini se? ”
” Chachi ma if she can cry and can hate her. So if she can try to smile, I will learn to not hate her ”
” Yash Bhai can I tell you something? ”
” I tell you Ragini I will not talk to you ”
” When you tell that? It’s new ”
” I hate you na, so obviously I cannot talk to you ”
” And what are do doing now? ”
” I am talking to you! Oh shit shit, main phir se haar gayi”
” Oh lala mere bhai haar gaya? to chalo don’t talk to me, vaise bhi Yash bhai aapki sagai abi abi nahi hue na? Meera mera acche dost hai, lekin don’t worry if you don’t talk to me, I will tell her.”
” Haa to? Me tum ya phir Meera sagai ke saath jaraha hon?”
” Meera ke saath but if I tell not to marry you she wont, because she love me more than you, and you cannot do anything ”
” Accha app dono chup raho and go downstair ”
The three come down, Ragini come to her Dada and Dadi and tell
“Good morning Dadu, how are you today? ”
” Sirf Dadu hi bologi, main app tak zida hon ”
” Dadi you know how much I love you, so ahenda don’t take the word of death, varna main apke saath naraz rahenge”
” Ok mera bacchu, but yet I’m fine thanks for asking ”
” Tum subha subha mera laagli kyon pareshaan karo. She has the right to love me more than you. Apke pass bete, bahu, pote, all loves you, if one love me you are jealous, that not fair MRS Akshara Raichand”
” OK ok don’t start with your nautanki and fake anger! I love you two
With that Ragini sat in her chair, and everyone serve begin to eat. She think
” how different people they are. In Maheswari or Badi, first boys eat and then girl, here everyone is sitting, chatting together. I’m blessed that I have got such a wonderful friends cum family, but yet I cannot forget this pain” She is lost, then Yash clap to gain her attention.
“Ragini ki bacchi, tum pirse lost hoga yi ? You are in love like me ? If not then why are you so lost?” Yash said in casual yet funny way
” Love ? I don’t know this word she said lost again”
“What ? How can anyone don’t know what love is ”
” When you are betrayed, you forget this word, because it would give you more pain”
“Rags tum kya bol rahi ho ? Love is not pain, it’s different. Haan it’s obvious that you don’t know the meaning of love, you were never in love. You are just stick to your work, live your life, learn to love, then you will understand the meaning of love ”
Everyone was shocked execept Yash, beacause the elder knew why Ragini hate the word love.
So Arvind, Yash’s father interrup them before Ragini explodes
“Yash bete, tum Ragini’s fikr mat karo, you should think about you and your futur because if you don’t go to office in ten mins, it you who will understand the word of “poverty” ” .
“What ??” Everyone laught at his face, except Ragini, because she think of her past. Yamini who sees that, put her hand on Ragini’s shoulder and assure her that everything would be alright.
Dadi then call Ragini who just look at her plate,
“Ragini beta, aakpi dono lagle aap tak so rahe ? ”
“Nahi bade dadi, we are awake” said Veer and Kajal
“That’s good ! You are grew up add Yamini
“But I’m angry at her” said Veer staring at Ragini
“Why my prince is angry at me ?”
” Budoo, why are you angry at her ?” Kajal retort
” I’m angry because I don’t see my sooraj today” Veer said faking an angry face
“Hein sooraj ? Tum sooraj kyon nahi dekhee. Ragu I think we should take him to a… What did you say for a eye’s doctor ? ” said inoncently Kajal
“We say ophtalmologist, and yes we must take him, cause it’s urgent ” said Ragini playfuly.
” Ha ha hasso hasso, Ragu you are my sooraj. You know I won’t get up if you don’t come ”
“Oh how sweet ! You call me your sooraj, mera bach… ” she doesn’t say the word.
” Ha bhai if she is your sooraj, then for me she is my chaand, because I don’t sleep without meeting her. Yesterday, she don’t come to me, but yet I have a photo, so I see her, then come to sleep. Hum dono equal hai”
Ragini has tears in her eyes, but she remind smiling, she thought
“This child are so innoncent, maybe… not the past is the past Ragini, Ma was right I have to learn to live with my bitter past” and she said
” Come to me, you know na I have so much work, issilye maine tum dono nahi dekpayi, but I promise, sunday we will go to watch a movie alright ? They nod then Ragini said bas don’t be angry at me ok ? ”
” We are not angry with you, I know you will quit us, like mom and dad did with us” Everyone was sad
” So aap dono think that I will leave you ? Why I will live my prince charming and my princess ? Bolo why I will leave my treasure here ? ”
“Saach main, we are your treasure ?” Veer and Kajal tell in the same time
“Yes you are and you will remaind that for ever” Ragini said kneeling to them
“So why don’t you shift here ” Kajal said, Ragini understand
” Oh so tum dono and your Grand dadu made up this nautanky, taki mein issi raha main sakte” She turn to Dada
“Are you not ashamed to use children Dada ?” She said faking an agry face
” Nahi Ragini, we are not ashamed, because we are all at fault” Said radha
” Oh oh, I have already tell you, I won’t stay here, because you are already done too much for me, I don’t want to abuse your generosity”
” Ragini bete, you are and will be always welcome here, you cannot be our bahu because Yash has already choose his jeevan saathi, but I want you as our daughter. We can adopte you bete ” said Arvind.
“To if I’m your daughter the, you will let me be independant, live my life like I want…” Ragini begin to tell
“Like you has a life, always stick to office, it’s not a life Ragu” said Yash with an angry face
“Uffo Yash bhai, when you will marry, you will forget all of us, because you will be occuped with your wife. If I came to stay here, you will not have a moment with your wife, because she would be stick with me ” Said Ragini. All family laugh at Yash face, because he was looking down
“Ya you are right, then stay to your house ”
” App deekhe, when I mention wife, he told me to stay at my house ”
” Yes because you will instigate my wife against me. My mom already share my love with you, that’s not fair ” . Ragini felt a crak in her heart, because she did the same in the past. She instigate her sasural against Swara.
“Yes maybe, I know Yamini aunty love me more than you” she said mockingly
” Yes I know, if you are done Ms Gagodia, I’m going because dad give sirf 10 mins, and if I heard your blablaring then it’s me who would be throw out at this place. Then where I will go ? I know I will come to your house”
“You can dream, because you wont come to my house, you are such disorgonize person. No you rest here with your family, because it’s your family ”
” Ohe ohe don’t be dramatic, I can share a little with you, I’m not that bad” he said with a hug to Ragini and say
” So would you please shift here ? ”
“I will think about it. So people I’m already late, I have to go bye ! And you two, my prince and princess go and study well, and Veer you won’t flirt with your Miss and other girls ok ? Kajal tum participe with other children, play with them ok ? Dadu-dadi I will have to talk to you tonight”
” Yes ragu”
” Ji bete ”
