Well, I had written a birthday gift for Eva, my choti bahu on her birthday. That was also a special update of FAITH.

I was walking through a dark, very dark corridor. I couldn’t see anything. I threw my hands in all sides to feel anything but they only brushed the air and returned back to me. I kept walking because I have to reach its end. After some minutes, a bright dazzle almost blinded me. I saw two silhouettes blocking a source of bright light. Perhaps that’s the end. I started walking with hope filling my soul again. The more I was approaching my so- called exit, the more prominent they were becoming. Almost there, my eyes widened in utter shock and terror ran down my spine. There were those two turn-points of my life— Kayra and Shaurya, grinning ear to ear. Their grin shortened into a dark evil smirk and just then I heard voices,” Sanskar! Come baby! We will play again. Come?” As if someone is sitting inside my ears and telling those. I thumped my hands on my ears and shouted,” NOOOOOO!! AAAAhhhhhhh…” I woke up with a scream.
I then felt two strong hands holding me and comforting me. As my eyes adjusted to the lights, I saw papa, holding me firmly. Then I saw mom, Gaurav and a doctor as well. I saw tubes attached to my hands. And my left hand was throbbing with pain. I realized I am in a hospice. Papa told me,” Sanskar! Don’t worry beta. That was a bad dream. You are my brave son, right? It’s okay. Nothing will happen to you. Hum sab hai Na! (We all are with you) “His words soothed my soul a bit. I was about to say,” Yes. Papa, I am br…”, when my eyes fell on the doorway.
There was Kayra and Shaurya, grinning evilly at me. My eyes widened and I grasped my papa’s arms and shouted at them,” How did you come here? What more do you want?” I turned to papa who was staring at me bewildered and said,” Papa, see they have come again. Tell them to go away. Tell…” I kept shouting.
Gaurav came by my side and held me,” Sanskar! No one is there. Who? Who have come? “
How come they can’t see them? Again their voices were ringing inside my ears. I kept saying,” Arey! Why can’t y’all see them? Kayra and Shaurya are here again. They are telling me to play again with them. Tell them I don’t want to go. I want to live. Tell them…” I think I should go and push them out of my sight. I attempted to open those tubes and rush towards them, still howling at everyone to leave me. They are holding me like I am some mad man.” I am not mad. Leave me and tell them to go away. Can’t you see them? Look they are standing here. Look at them.” I kept shouting and jumping. Amidst the tussle, I felt something prick me and after some minutes, I fell into a deep slumber.
When Sanskar opened his eyes, we were happy. He had shrieked in response to his nightmare but we were happy that his sense regained at least. I was enjoying that little father-son moment with an emotional aunty standing beside me. But just then, Sanskar did that loud shriek that wiped off our happy grin. He started howling and cursing at the blank doorway. He claims he can see Kayra and Shaurya. But they are in jail. That means he is— Hallucinating? Oh Gosh!
I and uncle kept holding him firmly and kept assuring and calming him that there was nothing like that. But he was getting violent with each passing moment and finally the doctor had to push a sleep-inducing injection through his vein. He finally cooled down and fell in a deep sleep.
We looked at the doctor with a mixture of emotions in our eyes. He sighed and said,” Sanskar is physically quite okay now. But mentally, he is going through a deep trauma. Those incidents have left a lasting impression on his mind and he is hallucinating.”
Aunty asked,” is there no remedy?”
Doctor firmly said,” Yes! But you can’t do that at home. He needs to get admitted in any counseling centre or rehabilitation centre.” Aunty gasped and said,” No! My son is not mad. He will take rest, sleep well and get well soon, doctor. Please, I don’t want to get him admitted there. Please …”
The doctor interrupted her and said,” No madam. We can’t take such a big risk. Love is not everything. He needs proper medication and care. If not now, he may get bigger psychological changes or disorders. You won’t be able to control then. Please trust me; I will refer him to the best clinic here. Your willpower and trust can save him.” Now before anyone could say anything, Rudraprasad uncle spoke up,” Yes. we will take him to the institution. I believe under proper counseling, he will definitely come round soon. Please doctor, lets proceed with the formalities and give me more info about the centre.” The doctor was relieved and took uncle out. He was scheduled to be taken there tomorrow only. The sooner, the better, you know.
Auntie’s eyebrows were still knitted to a frown. I put my hand on her shoulder and said,” Aunty! Look at Sanskar. Don’t you want him to get back to normal life?” she did not say anything but nodded her head, looking at her son’s face longingly. I continued,” Then aunty, please don’t keep any grudges. Welcome the decision with open arms. After all, it is all for his betterment. You see you really can’t control him when he will get violent attacks. And if really his condition worsens then? We should let him go. Now aunty, smile- a little. At least for me?” I made a puppy like face. She smiled a little and said,” I really don’t know how to thank you beta. If you weren’t there, we could have never been able to get back our son. Thank you so much. The lot you did is not done by even blood-brothers.” Her eyes wailed up. I rolled my eyes,” Am I not your son? No formalities aunty, please. I am his best friend and so is he. If we don’t stand by him then who will? And it’s you who brought him back. After all you are his mom. And now he will again become our Sanskar.” We both smiled looking at the sleeping Sanskar. Don’t worry bro. you will be fine very soon. You will.
The next morning, we headed for the rehabilitation centre in an ambulance. Sanskar was made to sleep again. Yester night he was quite okay. Still we didn’t tell him we are going to take him here.
The place was away from the din and bustle of the city— it was a very pleasant vibe. The centre was a big beautiful building surrounded by a lush green garden. A picturesque place it was. It had a cemetery as well as cremation ground of its own. Those were for those patients who stay here till death— most of them get cured but their relatives do not take them home. Hence they become their member till death. Whatever, I was enjoying in spite of the tensions surrounding me.
We reached there. Sanskar was woken up. He was informed of his new stay. He immediately protested,” Why? I am not mad after all. I still don’t make out how only I can see them. How can they be in jail when I can see them?” He is not mad yet. So I made an attempt.
I took him aside and said;” Bro, you want to get cured, right?” he nodded in positive. I said,” That is why you are here. You will be counseled and finally you will stop seeing them. Just have faith on yourself bro. you will definitely get back yourself. They will just induce that faith in you. They will just stand by you as you fix yourself (A/N- SORRY ANU FOR USING A VERSION OF YOUR LINE BUT COULDN’T FIND A BETTER LINE THAN THIS. 🙂 ). Okay? And just a few months’ deal, Then you will be a free bird again. And we will keep visiting you bro. you will be all okay.” His face was still flushed but he nodded in approval. I showed my thumb to the people there as he agreed.
He was admitted. After a long list of dos and don’ts, and a tearful moment, we parted. Sanskar is going to be fixed now. He will be fine again like before. Hope filled our hearts.
So, after a long time I am back to y’all. Please guys don’t get angry on me. I admit whatever happened with Sanskar wasn’t destined and needed. But I have planned it in this way. So guys, I am sorry for showing you such extremities. You can bash me for that.
Anyways, YOUR WAIT IS GOING TO FINISH!
Just wait for the next chapter guys. A surprise waiting for you there, and also the next chapter marks the beginning of the end guys. Keep reading till then.
