YAADO KE BAKSON MEIN….JINDA SI KHUSHBOO HAI……
He saw him sitting on the floor , crying inconsolably holding Urmila’s sardine(dupatta). Ram ran towards Lakshman ..seeing Ram , Lakshman looked at other side, wiped away his tears and gave Ram a smile. Lakshman stood up..
L(controlling his tears):- Bh…Bhaiya..you here , at this point of time . Did you need anything??
R:- Laksh, you know you can’t hide your tears from me….. then why are trying ..huh???
Saying this , Ram embraced Lakshman in an embrace and Laksh burst out crying . Ram just caressed his hair to calm him down. Ram knew his pain , he had undergone the same pain after Sita left him. At that time , Lakshman was the one who held him together and now it was his yoke to do the same. After sometime , they broke the hug..
R:- Laksh, shush!!! You have to be strong . Although its difficult today to see beyond the sorrow, may looking back in memory can help comfort you tomorrow. Remember, what you told me when Sita was gone.
L:- Yes, Bhai…..i said – those we love don’t go away they walk beside us everyday unseen , unheard but always near, still loved and still missed….
R:- Lakshman , same applies to you. I know its very difficult but you have to do this, dear…for the family..
L(cut in):- For you, bhaiya . My purpose of living is just you, bhai!!! Just you..
Lakshman kept his head in Ram’s lap. Ram ruffled Lakshman’s hair and sang for him,
“ Teri bechaini ka , Teri bekarari ka,
Ehsaas hai mujhko sun…..
Main jo paas tere hu phir tujhe hai kaisa gum,
Dard baant lenge hum sun……”
Lakshman stood up and looked at Ram , smiling. Lakshman nodded positively ….Suddenly , Shatrughan came from the door and held laksh’s shoulders from back
Sh:- “ In aankhon mein khushiyon ka,
Sapna sajaana hain”
Bharat too came and cupped his hands on lakshman’s cheeks.
Bh:- “ Tere dil ka mere dil se rishta purana hai,
In aankhon se har ansoon mujhko churana hai…”
L:- Until I have you all with me, my brothers with me…no pain can curtail me..
Four brothers shared a group hug..n consoled each other.
Sumitra watched all this n just uttered one sentence,
“It is not going to be easy , but they will make it together…..”
The hardest part was not losing you,
It was learning to live without you!!!!!
