I really didn’t plan anything for this episode but everything here is just a coincidence. And a suggestion friends, please read red string of fate, a ragsan ff..I know, I know that it is shocking but the author of it is sapna. She is a writer of India forums and I am a great fan of her work. Instead, her works are my inspiration for acceptance.. So I will be really pleased if you read that and I promise that you won’t regret
Actually, my mom made a sudden visit to doctor today as my fever is not getting cured. We both went to collect reports and doctor cooly informed that my sunstroke turned into typhoid..so sad right but I am happy because I will stick to the bed all the time and also can type episodes for you. So don’t be mad at me
Everyone in the room are eagerly waiting for durga Prasad’s answer
” may be, I am not sure”
” what do you mean papa?” Sanskar asked curious and he had hope in his eyes.
Durga Prasad turned to sanskar with soft eyes ” the one who filed the case argued that ram was the one but there were no evidences to prove them correct”
Swara narrowed her eyes “what do you mean about FIR uncle? The case will get register automatically because it’s a murder”
” yeah” durga Prasad sighed “I mean, police planned to close the case due to lack of evidence but someone did put the theory of RAM infront of them” he explained calmy.
” so, why did you bail ram Prasad?” Swara asked once again because she needed answers today.
” what!” Durga Prasad snapped, completely surprised ” I never did that, infact ram was never arrested”
“Never?” Swara is shocked now because vansh did mention to her that durga Prasad bailed him. Durga Prasad nodded in no before continuing
” police investigated kamala bai about the case several times because she worked for them too ”
” but why didn’t ram Prasad uncle’s name appear in the papers” ragini asked after a long pause trying to recollect few facts which she tried to collect about this case.
Durga Prasad gulped and stared at his knotted fingers. Both sanskar and laksh are surprised to see him in this way. It is so new to them.
“It’s because I kept it secret…I ..I don’t want to ruin the name of our family”
” and that’s how uncle, I mean you were a leading business man and shekar ji was an upcoming one and no media did try to cover the thing?” Ragini asked suspiciously. Some how it felt wiered.
” no ragini because I was not in the same status Ragini, we grew hundred times after…” He stopped abruptly as words choked. The three men passed some oh so familiar look to which swara frowned.
” and regarding media, I just didn’t want it and I had a friend who helped me then moreover gadodias murder was a hot topic but ram wasn’t involved”durga Prasad answered after a moment of silence.
“Then what about the person who tried to keep this case up?” Swara asked.
” oh yeah, they strongly fought for justice and kamala was interrogated a lot for which she got scared and left the work. Strangely, they withdrew the case saying that it was their mistake”
” strange” ragini murmurmed “do you know who did that?” She added. It might give some clue for case but durga Prasad shrugged apologetically.
” how did ram uncle behave after the incident?” Questions seemed infinite to swara now
Durga Prasad opened his mouth but sanskar continued, distracted ” so messy, I lost my playful father. After the incident, he locked himself in his study. He was no more funny, no more smiling, no more..” Sanskar’s throat closed by bitterness and it is clearly evident how much he missed him.
” so you believe that your brother is not responsible for the crime” Ragini’s voice is deep. She is still analyzing.
Durga Prasad simply nodded. Laksh shook his head and then applied antiseptic on his face.
” didn’t he say anything about murder?” Swara asked one again.
Durga Prasad frowned “obviously no and I am sure about that”
It’s now sanskar’s turn to frown. Reading the expression, durga Prasad continued ” family doesn’t need any proof to trust unlike legislation ”
Ragini turned her eyes to laksh and for a brief moment, they locked.
Swara stopped biting her nail when something came to her mind. She ran upstairs and came down after two minutes.
“But I have his bracelet, ram uncle’s” she gave the bracelt to shocked durga Prasad. He examined it for more than a minute. Sanskar’s heart constricted and he silently prayed not to listen the one he is thinking right now.
” who gave you this?”
“Vansh, he said he found it at the place of crime”
Durga Prasad’s mouth formed a ‘O’ and then he went upstairs.
Ragini narrowed her eyes to swara and sanskar, still mad about the papers.
“But I have the one” durga Prasad’s voice made them to turn to him.
“What?” Swara asked confused. He gave her another bracelet “but I have my brother’s bracelet with me”
Sanskar visibly relaxed but swara opened her mouth wide. She tried to blink away the tears but purely unsuccessful. Vansh betrayed her again, he lied to her but why?
Her gaze shifted to the half burnt case papers and then a hope raised in her heart. May be ram Prasad was the one.
“Do..do my father have any rivals?” Swara found herself asking this question but it came out as a whisper.
” I think no, infact I never poke my head in ram’s business” he explained in matter of fact tone.
” so you don’t know any thing about the manipulations that happened in my dad’s company ?”
Durga Prasad opened his mouth wide and then turned to sanskar with confusion. Sanskar gave him an apologetic look
“Is that so?” Durga Prasad’s voice is witness of his shock ” we are known for our loyalty. I can bet on that”
” so you say that my father is disloyal person? ” from nowhere, swara suddenly started feeling anger conquering her. How dare he to doubt her father’s loyalty.
” I am sorry swara..I am clueless. Apart from that, if you want to know any information, kamala bai can give you” durga Prasad softly advised her.
The other four in the room remained silent for a minute.
“She is dead” ragini and sanskar informed at the same time. And they are rewarded by a surprising gasp of durga Prasad.
“when did that happen?’
“a few weeks ago” laksh answered this time.
Durga Prasad closed his eyes for a minute trying to surpress the pain. Laksh and sanskar stared him nervously but felt relieved when he opened his eyes
“Good night everyone” durga Prasad greeted before heading to his room with a painful heart.
Swara smiled seeing the rising sun from kitchen window. The sight made her forget the last night conversation. She placed the bowl of cake mix aside and started chopping tomatoes. After few minutes, she turned back casually but gasped seeing sanskar sitting on one of the kitchen counter and staring her. His burning gaze made her blush.
“Stop thinking dirty Mr. Maheswari” she warned him playfully resuming to her work.
“What!” He snapped ” no, I am thinking straight” he said in a surprised tone as he came out of the trance by her voice.
Swara shook her head and continued chopping.
“Have we met before?” He asked her in a low voice.
“Have me met before swara?” Sanskar asked once again when she didn’t answer.
Swara stopped chopping and smiled to herself.
“No” she said still trying to surpress her smile.
Sanskar pushed himself from the counter and started walking towards her “seriously swara, I have been feeling the same from the very first day I saw you”
Swara grabbed the bowl of cake mix and turned but bumped into sanskar. Before she could fall, sanskar held her by wrapping his both arms around her waist. She maganed to hold the bowl on her left hand by gripping his left shoulder. Sanskar leaned more so that their nose tips brushed. Swara tried to hide her nervousness and gulped various times. She is completely mesmerised under his spell.
” I have a feeling of strong dejavu of me holding you this way but there was something in your hand in place if this bowl” his husky voice made her blush to crimson.
“No sanskar” she said once she stood up.
“That’s my work to find” he winked “anyways, do it fast. We must leave to vara..Banaras” he added with a breath taking smile
“All the best” she yelled behind him before he disappeared.
” cake!” Sanskar exclaimed as if he won a lottery. Swara smiled seeing sanskar’s excited eyes, amused face and pure smile. Without wasting a second, he grabbed the plate from her hand and started eating like a person who has been starved from years
“What are you, five?” Swara asked cocking her head. Sanskar raised his head still licking his fingers “six, actually” he pouted.
” fine then, leave some for your brother too” she warned. He stopped eating for a while and then made it into two pieces.
“Give this to him then” he said to swara motioning the other half which he didn’t ate.
Swara threw a bright smile at him before leaving
“That’s for me!” Laksh asked with unbelievable eyes. Swara quickly nodded before passing the plate. He too ate it with the same excitement.
“Did you give it to my brother” he asked her with mouth full of cake.
Swara shook her head in disgust “no doubt, you are three and your brother is five”
Laksh have her a shy smile before a letting out a burp.
” you are not flying?” Swara asked sanskar once they are inside the chopper. She is highly disappointed.
“No, I am not in a mood today” he explained genuinely
” mood swings? Are you an adolescent?”
Swara asked him with mock surprise.
“No Miss gadodia” she understood that he is pissed because he uses the word gadodia when he is annoyed.
” oh!” Swara exhaled and immediately turned to him after buckling herself “then you must be pregnant ”
Sanskar suddenly turned to her with amused eyes
“Because apart for adolescents, only they suffer from mood swings” she added casually but enjoyed teasing him. Of course it is her favorite work after all.
Sanskar narrowed his eyes “if you won’t shut your mouth, I..I..” Words failed him and this is a news to her ” I..will punish you”
“How?” She asked wiggling her eyebrows. He smriked “I will make you work for me, life time”
Swara scowled at him because she badly wanted to leave the job.
” is everything okay avinash” sanskar asked the person who is in pilot seat to which he nodded.
“How many in this building knows to ride a chopper?”
“Only three, me, laksh and avinash”
“So why are we here?” Swara asked sanskar trying to meet his pace. They are walking away from the helicopter.
“This way sir” a young girl directed sanskar. Sanskar nodded and wrapped his arm around swara’s shoulder.
” actually, your idea about wasting money motivated me” he said professionally. Swara opened her mouth in shock. Sanskar closed it using his forefinger
“So I just asked my employee about a charity which would suit my requirements and she suggested me this, so we are here to study the environment”
Swara smiled nervously “oh! I didn’t expect you to consider my advice”
” I always do and moreover I just wanted to give few orphans the strength to live, a home which loves them” swara sighed “unconditionally” he added.
” was that because of me” finally swara found her voice.
Sanskar smiled distracted “no swara, your point is genuine and even I was devoid of parents love ” he swallowed the hard lump in his throat ” so I am just trying to see that atleast few will not experience it”
Tears came to swara’s eyes. Her childhood memories flashed her mind and she silently followed him.
“I am planning to open a charity in Kolkata, if that works…lets see” he sighed heavily. Swara turned to see if anyone are watching them. Both avinash and the girl are ahead of him. She immediately leaned towards sanskar and gave him a peck on his cheek. Sanskar stilled for a moment trying to analyze what has happened few seconds ago. Swara walked ahead.
“What was that?” He yelled from behind when his brain met his voice. Swara turned to him playfully and gave a naughty smile before turning back. He marched to reach her pace.
” well, right now, I am planning to open another charity in Ranchi, another one in Delhi, Jaipur, Lucknow and ha if possible in South too” he informed her with tons of excitement in his voice.
“That won’t work Mr. Maheswari” she warned “focus”
” I know how to make that work”
She raised her eyebrows and opened her mouth but closed it realising that they reached their destination.
“Good morning” a fifty year old woman greeted them as they entered the building.
” good morning” sanskar greeted her warmly before sitting in front of her. Swara occupied the seat beside him.
” I am pavitra, So what would you like to know about us?” The old woman asked them politely.
” I just want to have a look on your expenses, maintained. It would give an outline sketch”
” oh! In that case, a walk through the building will serve better” she offered him and then gestured them to take the tea which was brought by servant.
Swara and sanskar smile while taking their respective cups.
” here you are” pavitra said to an woman who is standing back of sanskar.
“She will help you in the trip mister” pavitra informed them gesturing to the woman behind once they took the last sip. Sanskar adjusted his cufflink before turning to the woman. Once their eyes met, sanskar’s face turned from shock to horror to confusion to anger. Swara frowned at him. The old woman who is in her early fifties, stood rooted to her place still not believing the situation. Her eyes softened for a second before fuming. She immediately turned to other side facing her back to sanskar.
“I got to go” sanskar informed pavitra through his gritted teeth before grabbing swara’s wrist and dragging her out of the place.
Swara saw sanskar calling some one from his mobile “we are heading back to Kolkata..now..make the lines clear…don’t dare to question..good” he snapped and then disconnected the call. ” but you said we will stay here till evening” swara asked him staggering behind. Sanskar’s deathly glare shut her mouth. Soon they both are in copter with avinash at piolt seat. Swara didn’t dare to ask any question throughout the journey.
Laksh frowned seeing swara trying hard not run behind sanskar. He raised his eyebrows questioning her and she shrugged confusingly.
“What happened?” Laksh asked sanskar not looking at him.
Sanskar stopped and turned to his brother ” I saw her”
That three words changed laksh’s expression too and he left the place in rage. Swara’s confusion increased but she followed sanskar to his room.
” what happened sanskar” her voice is too low to be audiable.
Sanskar turned to her giving a it-does’nt-concern-you look.
She flinched but gathered her courage. ” I must know sanskar. When you know everything about me, I have every right to know about you.” She is surprised by her stubborness. Sanskar sighed before turning to her.
” do you want to know? ” his voice is deep, pained and his eyes are ice. Just ice. Swara nodded chanting brave mantra in her mind.
” she was Mrs. Annapurna Durga Prasad maheswari!”
” laksh’s mother?” Swara’s surprised tone witnessed her inner mind.
Sanskar nodded .
