Hii guys…chaitali is back with a new part…i added a long note at the end..read it after reading this part.
Swara was running on the road on her bridal dress.
“What should i do…where to go!I can’t keep running all the way here!”
She was too busy in her thoughts that she didn’t hear the sound of horns.She was literally blocking the way of a car.Thanks God there was not much cars out there and the car she was blocking was continuously buzzing horns to acknowledge her that she was on the road.At a time the driver was fed up and came out of the car.
“If u have the intention to do suicide then there is other better ways i know!Don’t come in front of my car.”
Swara looked back listening the irritated male voice.Then she looked over his shoulder.Sure there was a car.So he is the driver of the car?
Swara:Listen mr. driver…i am not here for suicide.And if i wanted to do suicide,i would choose a truck to die for..not a car!
Driver:Listen…i am a decent man from a decent family…not any driver for ur information…and i have a name!And that’s not “Mr driver”
Swara:So what should i call a stranger?’Hello mr. decent man..i am not here to die in front of ur car!’.You expected this sentence from me??(angrily)
Driver:Look u r crossing ur limits now!
Swara:Oh really? You know about limits and all?I thought u never heard about that word!(sarcastically)
Driver:I know how to behave at least!Seeing ur behaviour i can say that u don’t know that!
Swara:How dare u mr. driver!
Driver:Excuse me!I said i have a name and it’s sansker…not mr. driver!
Swara:I don’t care..whatever ur name is!Just go away!
Sansker:Really?I didn’t even bother to look on u if u wouldn’t come in front of my car.And i could ran over u if i wanted!
Swara:And then ended up on jail!
Sansker:Oh such a great point! And who would file the complaint for driving all over u?Because i can’t see anyone with u now!
Then sansker looked from tip to toe of swara.She was biting her nails.
Sansker:And from ur appearance i can say that u have eloped from ur marriage!So u should be frightened from the name of police,not me!You knoe what?I can do u a favour…i will call the police and let them know that a bride has forgotten the venue of her own marriage and she running here and there in search of that.They will surely take u to ur mandap!Where probably ur groom is waiting.
Sansker started to take out his phone.Swara panics seeing that.She reached his hand to stop him from dialing any number.
Swara:Don’t call the police plz…i am sorry for coming im front of ur car!
Sansker released his hands from her and put his phone in his pocket.Then he crossed his arms over her chest and looked at her firmly.
Sansker:Then tell me the story…why r u running at the middle of the road in bridal dress?
Swara:I will tell u
She looks on.
Shekhar and Dp were still arguing im front of sumi,ragini and laksh.
Dp:I don’t know anything…i came here to take a daughter in law and i will go witj one.It’s about our reputation…everyone in the city knows that Son of Durgaprasad Maheswari is getting married today.I can’t cancel this marriage now!Call back ur daughter and i want this marriage happen today.
Shekhar:I understand ur condition…but think about us too..she is gone!Her phone is switched off..what can we do now?
Dp:Then what will i answer the people waiting over there?
He showed the guests waiting on the mandap.
Shekhar:I will answer their all questions..i will say them that my daughter has eloped and i will ask for their forgiveness.You don’t have to do anything…or answer anyone!
Dp paced right to left rubbing his both hands together.
Dp:No..u can’t say that.They will think that there is some problem in our son…that’s why she eloped.I can’t risk on my son’s reputation.
Shekhar:Then what can i do?
Suddenly Dp’s gaze fell on ragini who was standing with sumi.
Dp:Give ur second daughter to us.
Everyone was shocked specially sumi and ragini.They shared a glance.
Shekhar:How can i do that…she thought him as her sisters husband..how can she marry him?
Dp:People know that ur daughter is marrying my son.So it will be no big deal…still he will be marrying ur daughter.Don’t say no for this.
Shekhar:I can’t do that dp ji…forgive me!
Laksh came in between them and protested.
Laksh:He is saying right dad.
Then he looked over ragini who was visibly uneasy on the indication of this matter.
Laksh:We can’t just force anyone for this marriage.I can’t marry her.
He felt so defeated then.He knew the reason of swara’s this action.What was his fault? He told her the truth as he wanted to start a fresh relationship.And whatever happened that night wasn’t his fault fully.He was framed !
Dp:U should remain silent when the elders r talking laksh.
Dp stopped him showing palm.He watched last time on ragini who was looking down.He felt guilty for what was going to happen with her..but he had nothing in his hand.Again he was defeated.
Sumi:We can’t give our second daughter.I don’t approve this marriage.I apologise on swara’s behalf..but i can’t let my one daughter suffer for other’s mistake!
Dp then did an unexpected action.He hold shekhar’s hand and nearly cried pleading.
Dp:I beg for ur daughter’s hand.If u say i will touch ur feet…but don’t cancel this marriage.My son will be destroyed.
He folded his hands.How could he say him no?He looked at sumi who was nodding her head negative.
Dp:I promise that i will keep her like a princess.She will do whatever her wish.Just give her hand
Shekhar:Okey….i agree for this marriage.
Ragini couldn’t believe her ears.She ran to her room without saying a word and didn’t look back.
She was crying looking at the mirror.How could her mom papa do this to her?At that time shekhar and sumi entered the room.
Shekhar took ragini’s hand and told in a crying voice.
Shekhar:From the childhood,i have fulfilled ur every wish…i always listened to ur all talks.Now it’s ur time to do something for me.Marry HIM.Don’t do something which ur sister did.Don’t humiliate me in front of all.My one daughter is dead to me.I can’t live if other daughter chose her path of death.
He went out.Sumi looked at ragini.She wiped her tears.
Ragini:Mom…papa doesn’t know but u know…how can i…
Sumi:Beta…sometimes…we have to sacrifice our own happiness for the happiness of the others.Baaki tumhari marji…ur father may force u but i won’t.Laksh wanta to talk to u.Take decision after that.
She went out and laksh entered hesitantly.She didn’t have courage to look at him and he didn’t want to look at her eyes.His eyes roamed all around the room as he talked.
laksh:I know it’s a tough decision to make.It’s hard for me too…but i will never force on u for this relationship.You will live there like u live here.You will have ur own room.You don’t have to share one with me.You can do whatever u want,go wherever u wish.I don’t have the right to tell u to marry me…but it will save our family from some problems…so…
He couldn’t say anything more..he turned to go.But ragini called him.
He stopped on his track but didn’t look back.
Ragini:I am ready to marry.
She managed to say crying.
“I am sending ur mother”he said before going.
“If i tell him the reason and the name of the person then he can call the police and send me over there.I have to tell lie.”swara thought.
She felt sansker’s suspicious glance on her.She looked at him biting her nails.
Sansker:Will u continue biting ur nails or tell me the story?I am really getting irritated here!
Swara stopped biting her nails.
Swara:So mean!Ok..batati hu!Listen…i am an orfan…I lived with my uncle and aunty…aunty didn’t like me…she was like cinderala’s step mother..she always taunted me..made me do the all work…didn’t give me food.
Swara told with fake sobbing.
Sansker:Stop ur cinderala story…directly tell me why did u ran from marriage?
Swara:I am telling u my sorrow story and u r saying this!How mean!
Sansker:U r really getting on my nerve!Ok i am calling police.
Swara:No no..wait i am telling u…(desperately)
Swara:Aunty wanted to get rid of me so she fixed my marriage with a mad man..not only mad but also old man.
Sansker:So u ran from there because u didn’t want to marry that mad old man?
Swara nodded like a child.Sansker thought for a while.
Sansker:Okey…i will forgive u..i won’t call the police.
Sansker:But where will u go now?Seeing u i don’t think u have any destination.Will u roam around the road and get nasty glares from people?
Swara:Excuse me!! I am not getting any nasty glares!
Sansker:Oh of course u are!People are watching u weirdly because of ur dress.
He pointed to her bridal dress.She looked at it too.
Swara:Oh that?Well they r watching me because it’s…ummm….gorgious!
Sansker:And absolutely awful amd abnormal!
Sansker:Yes!What do u think?Running in the road alone at this hour on bridal dress is normal?If i wouldn’t then somebody else will call police and tell them that u eloped.
Swara:Uff..why do u talk about police all the time?
Sansker:Police toh safe side hai…did u think about the goons?They will think u ass their own bride on drunken state and enjoy their suhagrat with u!
Swara:Chhiii…how could u even say that?That was awfully disgusting!
Sansker:Well that’s a possibility…i am just making u aware of that!
“Hello bhaisaab…ghar ja ke biwi se jhagra karo..why r u blocking our path?”
They both looked behind listening the voice.There were two cars waiting on the road as sansker’s car blocked their path.
“Apne kaam se matlab rakho na bhai…if u need my car to be moved then tell me.Why r u bringing this biwi siwi?”sanskar told while entering to the car.
Swara chuckled at the irritation in his voice.He was surely embarrassed on the mention of biwi.At that time she remembered from what she had run.Her marriage.She almost forgot that as she was busy in quarreling.What might be happening there now?Mom and papa must be angry on her.But she had no choice.She had a valid reason but she got to know at the end moment and she didn’t get a chance to tell them.And her sister ragini…she must be worried for her!
Sumi made ragini ready on bridal dress.She was looking at her own face in mirror as a stone.Suddenly she noticed the chain in her neck which was given by sujata.It was there till then.She removed it and removed the bracelet too which uthta made her wear.She had to wear mangalsutra and bangles at their place.She handed tye chain and the bracelet to sumi.
“Mom…will u do me a favour? Call him when u have the ability to face him…and hand him these…don’t tell me about my marriage…just tell him that i can’t talk to him and i am fine.”ragini said as a robot.
“Actually he becomes worried if i don’t receive the phone calls.”she added.
Sumi just nodded taking those things.
Ragini came in the mandap and sumi made her sit beside laksh.He watched at her intensely as she sat beside him.She felt the gaze but made no effort to look at him.
The marriage ritual started.Sumi tied tye knot between ragini and laksh.The pandit asked them both to stand up for round.
In the first 4 rounds laksh was in front.In the 5th row ragini started to walk in front.She was walking too fast that their knot was released.Laksh stood on spot seeing that.But ragini continued walking alone having no hint of releasing the knot.All looked shocked as it was thought as inauspicious. Sumi caught hold of her and tied the knot again.Laksh looked at her and caught her emotionless face.He took a long sigh and resumed the round.
Laksh made her wear the mangalsutra and put the sindoor on her hairline.Some sindoor fell on her nose.
“Look at that..it means that she will get a lot of love from her husband.”some woman said loudly.
Ragini didn’t hear that but laksh did.
What that woman said will be true ever?No hints.
Note:I want to say something here.Many of u r thinking swara wrong…but keep urself on her shoes.It will feel no wrong.Are u thinking dp,shekhar and sumi wrong?All of them r right at their side.Laksh is wrong? Well he told swara everything before marriage and whatever happened before wasn’t his fault alone!And he was guilty for that!Ragini wrong?Absolutely not!She was doing this for her parents and for saving a family reputation.Who was at fault then?No one…it is the time and situation.
Swara is quite immature here.Don’t blame her for that!
