Precap: Swara and Sanskar’s journey towards Bhopal……

Chapter 10

Evening, 6:30

Swara’s POV

As soon as car halted I came out of my sleep. It took me sometime to figure out where I am. Then I realized that it was my destination “Maheshwari Mansion” I read the name plate fixed at the entrance gate. Well, it was a beautiful sight in front of me. A huge mansion rather a palace with lots of greenery around and a well maintained garden. The compound was huge and the place was looking beautifully designed. Everything was just perfect about the place, proudly displaying the affluence and prosperity of Maheshwari clan. Driver opened the door for me with a welcoming smile on his face. Then he stepped down and asked driver to bring my luggage inside while signaled me to follow him. Not much to my surprise the mansion was equally attractive from inside as it was from outside or perhaps more.

But nobody was there even though it was a Sunday. Looking here and there for some time he called someone “Miththu kaka”. Within fraction of seconds an old man appeared in front of us. He greeted him with a smile and then looked at me with little surprise. “This is Miss Bose, Siya’s new governess” he introduced me to that old man. He greeted me with same warm smile and I tried to equally reciprocate. “Where is everybody, no one is looking at home” he questioned him. “Laksh and Ragini went out along with Siya baby and Ram Sahab, choti Malkin and badi malkin had to attend some function in Mr. Chaudhari’s house, so they left an hour ago” he stated. Though I wasn’t interested in the inquisition going on because I was feeling exhausted, but still I was listening to them carefully. After his long period of questioning he turned to me and said in his usual tone “Miss Bose you go and take rest…. We will meet at diner, there you will get to meet the whole family along with Siya”.

I was little relaxed that finally I got some rest. He signaled “Mithuthu kaka” to take me to the guest room and we left. Passing the few corridors I reached in my so called room. It was upstairs, the room was beautiful, fully furnished with attractive interior. “Memsahab, you take rest, I will send your luggage and if you need anything just let me know… coffee or tea or anything else” he asked me politely. “Thank you kaka, I don’t need anything just do me one favour, call me Swara… it’s my name” I replied. He gave me a light smile and said “Theek Hai Swara Betiya, aap aram karo”. He was about to leave when I called him loudly “Kaka! Diner will be at what time” I asked because I didn’t want to be late on the very first day and give a bad impression to everybody. “at 9:00” he said before leaving.

8’oclock, night

A soft touch on her hair woke Swara up, yawning and stretching she looked sideways and saw a cute small girl sitting beside her. She looked at the surrounding and realized that it wasn’t her own cozy room of the house. Sadness appeared on her face. Then she shifted her gaze towards the girl who was looking at her with amusement.

Touching her hair once again with her little fingers she asked “Are they real?” Swara smiled at her innocence “Fortunately they are real” she said. “Hiii…. I am Siya Maheshwari…. You are going to be my teacher” she said in excitement. Swara was admiring her cuteness… she just wanted to pull that chubby cheeks for once. Swara was busy in noticing her. She was cute and innocent, slightly chubby… fair complexion, black short hairs touching her cheeks and small round eyes. Surely anybody will fall in love with her for her cute and innocent looks.

Swara: (forwarding her hand towards her) hello… I am Swara… Swara Bose. Well I am glad that I am going to have such a cute student.

Siya gave a pleasing smile on her praise. She immediately held her hand and shook it tightly. It was a totally new experience for the little girl because her earlier tutors were not that friendly with her… they were mostly 35 plus…. And as per her really boring and torturous some time. But Swara was different for her…. besides being young she wasn’t that formal with her.

Swara: (smiled at her) So…. Can we be friends?

Siya looked at Swara with surprise…after few seconds of silence she spoke….

Siya: (smile) Friends…..

Swara patted her cheeks softly and glanced at the clock…. It was 8:30. She moved out of the bed and decided to get ready for the diner. Siya was following her everywhere in the room.

Siya: (curious) are you going to stay here forever….
Swara: (laughed a little) would you like if I stay here forever….
Siya: May be….
Swara: I will stay here till you need me ok…. Now I am going to have a bath will join you at diner ok…
Siya: (innocently) I will wait for you here….

Swara moved inside the washroom giving a happy blink of eyes to her. Almost 15 minutes passed Siya was busy in flipping Swara’s mobile when suddenly it starts ringing…. She looked at the screen “MA” she managed to read. Next moment she picked the call.

Sharmishtha: Hello Shona… you reached their safely?
Siya: (confused) I am not Shona… I am Siya. “Who is Shona?”
Sharmishtha: (surprised hearing a kid’s voice from other end) who are you? And where is Shona… I mean Swara? I am her mother.

Siya: (think for a while) She is in washroom… wait let me give phone to her.

Before Sharmishtha could say anything, she heard banging of the door and shouting… “come out… your mom’s call”… Swara hurriedly opened the door as she was ready, quickly taking the phone from Siya’s hand she spoke

Swara: Hello ma…how are you?
Sharmishtha: Shona… where were you? And who was the child picked your phone?
Swara: (smiling at Siya) Ma… I was in washroom and it was Siya… Mr. Maheshwari’s daughter.
Sharmishtha: (smiles) very soon you became friendly ha… well I am happy that you are not going to be bore there.
Swara: (looking at Siya with sad smile) I hope so… Ma where is Ashu? Is he fine? I want to talk to him…

Sharmishtha passed the phone to Ashwin who was eagerly waiting for his turn….
Ashwin: (sadly) di… when you will come back… am really feeling bore without you.
Swara: (calm tone) just now I reached here… how can I come back? I promise I will come over there during some weekends… now stop behaving like a nursery kid…. you are a big boy, now you have to take care of ma and yourself also… ok!
Ashwin: (unwillingly) ok fine…

They talked for some more and then Swara looked at the time….it was almost 9… she quickly said bye to them and disconnects the call. All the while Siya was there beside her. Swara looked at herself in the mirror and asked Siya “Shall we?” Siya held her hand and they moved out of the room.

At living area

Sanskar, Laksh and Ram were busy in talking with each other…. While ladies of the house were engaged in checking the food preparations…. It was a weekend so all the family members were at home otherwise they hardly get time to eat together….

Sanskar: (looking at Ram) so chachaji…. How is the party work going on? What about the nominations? When they going to declare?
Ram: well…. Now a days it was almost a roller costar ride for us…. Elections are coming and we are busy in planning the strategy for next year. About the names of the candidates they will be decided soon.

Unlike other males of the Maheshwari clan, Ram wasn’t a business man rather he was a politician, an influential and popular politician of the state. Being in politics he still manage to lead a respectable and uncontroversial life which is hardly seen in such profession.

Sanskar: (concern) Chachaji I know you are going through a hectic schedule these days but don’t ignore your health ok….
Ram: (laughing) Do you think your chachi will let me forget that?

Laksh and Sanskar laughed at it… everybody knew that Sujata has extreme ways of expressing her feelings whether its care, anger, love or hatred. Ram shook his head at his own misery.

Laksh: (looking here and there) Bhai… where is the new guest? She came with you na… kaka was talking about it.
Sanskar: (flipping the pages of a business magazine) she must be in her room. Why you are becoming so anxious?
Laksh: (naughty smile) nothing much…. Want to meet her that’s it….tell me “Is she pretty?”
Sanskar: (annoyed) Laksh when will you grow up? Do you remember that you are married? I don’t know how Ragini is tolerating you….
Laksh: (innocent face) Bhai…. I just asked a simple question to you whether she is pretty or not. And you started writing my character certificate, it’s not fair. By the way I don’t want suggestions from you for my married life… see how happy Ragini is (pointing towards Ragini who was laughing with Sujata on something).
Sanskar shook his head in disbelief “You are impossible” he said.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

In corridor, Swara was walking along with Siya holding her hands in hers. Siya was giving the details of the Mansion, about rooms, garden…. Playing courts etc with excitement.

Siya: (remembering something) who is Shona?
Swara: (surprised) It’s my nick name but how you get to know? (The first thought which crossed Swara’s mind is that is it he who told her but how did he know… may be Ma mentioned it in front of him, she thought)
Siya: (looking at Swara’s lost face) when I picked your mom’s call… she said that.

Swara smiled at her and remembered her mother mentioning about Siya taking her call.
Siya: Can I call you Shona di?
Swara: (smiles) I have no problem…. You can call me whatever you want…. By the way don’t you have any nick name?
Siya: (disappointed) I have but I don’t like it….
Swara: (lovingly looked at her) won’t you tell me?
Siya: (pouting) first promise me you won’t laugh….
Swara nodded her to assure her that she won’t do anything like that
Siya: (sadly) It’s Laddoo

Swara suppressed her laugh and responded normally as she noticed Siya was curiously observing her reaction. “Isn’t it so boring and funny?” she said. “No… I think it’s cute… even better than mine” Swara replied. Although Siya was happy with her reply but not convinced fully.

At dining area

Everyone was settled for the dinner. Kaushalya was arranging the dishes properly on the table. Annapurna looked here and there and asked “Where is Siya?” all were looking at each other for an answer then Miththu kaka spoke “Malkin… she in the room of new governess”.

Laksh: (smirks) Bhai… I think she already started her mission to get rid from the new one.

Sanskar gave an angry glare to Laksh before turning to his mother but why they are taking so long….kaka “have you informed her about the diner time?” he nodded to him to say a yes. “Then where are they?” sanskar was about to signal kaka to go and check them but a voice from behind stopped him…

“We are here” an exciting voice compelled them to turn around. There she was standing with Swara clinging to her hand with a bright smile on her face. Well the scene was little surprising for them… this was the first time when the little monster of the house was so happy in the company of someone who was supposed to be her teacher. Then their gaze shifted from Siya to the girl standing beside her…looking little nervous with so many strange eyes scanning her. She was wearing a baby pink churidar and kurta with small diamond stud gifted by her father…. She specially chose that to wear for the beginning of her new journey…. Her loose hairs touching her waist….and a nervous smile on her face. All these making her look innocently beautiful. Sanskar was staring her as he never imagined her to be like this… in his two earlier encounters, he always seen her in casual western attires… he can’t deny that right now she wasn’t looking like a sophomore but a beautiful women. He was confused and thought “whether she did it purposely for a good impression or it’s just a coincident” Annapurna noticed her nervousness and just to break the ice she spoke “Siya won’t you introduce your new friend to us”.

The very next moment Siya Dragged Swara towards dining table, holding her hand tightly. Swara looked at Annapurna and spoke softly “I hope I am not late”. Annapurna smiled at her and replied…. “Not at all dear….we just started, come sit”. Before taking a seat Swara looked at him and he understood what she was trying to say….
Sanskar: (looking at all) every one meet Miss Swara Bose…. Siya’s new Governess. (Turning towards Swara) and Miss Bose this is my family…..
All present there gave her a sweet welcoming smile…. She can feel the genuineness in it. Sanskar was about to introduce her with each member individually but before that Siya spoke “I will introduce you to everyone” she squealed in excitement.

Precap: Swara’s first day as Siya’s governess….
