Continuation from Episode 8:
Shivaay and Mr.Trivedi are walking through the entrance corridor,talking.Mr.Trivedi is quite happy having Shivaay beside him-
Mr.Trivedi:So Shivaay,this is our first meeting almost one year later.Last time we met in London at a get together party which was thrown in honour of your win-Entrepreneur Of The Year among Indian Exporters Co.Right?
Shivaay:Right you are.We met for the first time at that party.You had inspired me a lot.
Mr.Trivedi:You know Shivaay I give your example to each person who wants to shine through hard works and pure business talent,who wants to make an identity of their own.I am very proud of you.Tell me,how is life and everyone in your family especially Mrs.Kalyani Oberoi?
Shivaay:Thank you so much sir but I don’t know whether I am eligible for those heavy praises.And Dadi is doing fine so is everyone else.
Mr.Trivedi:What brought you here in Delhi?Have you come to attend any business meeting or just a personal visit?
Shivaay:Consider it as a personal visit!
Mr.Trivedi:Then I can have all your time after you finish your personal work.They have reach to the hall by that time.Shivaay decides to ask Mr.Trivedi everything about Anika,but later.Only he can tell him the exact truth.In the hall Gauri,Sahil are talking with Anika with few members around.Mr.Trivedi comes to the hall with a happy face but it turns very rigid watching something.He stops and Shivaay looks at him-
Mr.Trivedi:What is she doing in my house?Vasundhara,Vasundhara?Who let her enter my house?I need answer.He is furious!Anika’s Mom comes hurriedly there and rest of the family members also gather.
Mrs.Trivedi:Listen to me plz.I know that you are angry but can’t you let those things go from your mind?Just forget those and calm down,for my sake!We have guest in our house!Plz understand!
Mr.Trivedi:You are telling me to calm down even after knowing everything Vasundhara?You very well know what else we had to go through and tolerate because of this girl-Pointing at Anika!Shivaay gets stunned to the core.He looks at Anika.Tears are shimmering in her eyes!She is unable to decide why Mr.Trivedi who is her father that she got to know few minutes ago,is accusing her of something grave which is totally unknown to her.Going near to Anika Mr.Trivedi shouts-
Mr.Trivedi:Why have you returned?Was it necessary?You had left us breaking all our hopes,dreams and hearts na?You had not thought about all of us while leaving then why have you returned?He shouts more loudly.You know what,we have learnt living without you.Yes,it was tough,real tough.But you had left us with no other option!Anika is taken aback with the situation.With a broken voice of suppressed crying she utters-
Anika:Dad!Mr.Trivedi closes his eyes.Afterwards,with a deep yet calm voice he says-
Mr.Trivedi:Don’t call me Dad!Harshvardhan Trivedi is not your Dad!After what you did,you had lost all the rights to call me Dad.Mrs.Trivedi wants to tell something but Mr.Trivedi stops her raising his hand.Pin drop silence is prevailing in the hall.No one has enough guts to tell anything or defends Anika.On this side Anika’s heart is racing like a metro mail’s speed.She feels an acute,extreme pain is overpowering all her senses,all her thinking and feelings.Sweat drops appear on her forehead.Standing at a distance Shivaay was listening everything what Mr.Trivedi was delivering,his sharp knife like words.He is totally numb hearing all words which Mr.Trivedi used for Anika,his daughter.He is thinking if he should tell anything or not then looking at Anika he notices that she is blinking repeatedly and her breathing is getting high.Guessing she can faint any moment,he moves forward but Gauri catches Anika who is beside Anika as she has fainted already.Anika’s mom rushes to her-
Gauri:Di,open your eyes.She pats her both the cheeks.Plz someone bring water-She shouts.Water gets sprinkled on Anika’s face and she gets consciousness.Shivaay gets relieved.Getting up,Anika looks around and tells-Mom,why are you crying and Chutki you too?Mrs.Trivedi,Sahil,Gauri everyone gets happy that Anika is recognizing them,except Mr.Trivedi.Shivaay is watching the family reunion.He tries to smile but could not.Anika is recovered but he is not happy with that,how paradoxical!His eyes get moist and soon will turn to downpour,he feels.He is trying hard to stop those tears of pain!Something is choking in his throat.Anika gets up with the help of Gauri and Mrs.trivedi.
Mrs.Trivedi:Come dear,let’s go to your room.Don’t think much and forget everything else.We are with you dear.You need rest.
Anika:One minute Mom.I have not got the answer yet.Why are you all crying and what happened?
Gauri:Di,will tell you everything later.For the time being you need rest.Let’s move out from here.Before they do that,Mr.Trivedi interferes-
Mr.Trivedi:Stop right there.No one will go anywhere.Anika looks at him-
Mr.Trivedi:I have already told you very clearly not to call me Dad.I hate that word from your mouth,do you understand?You have no place in my house.Mrs.Trivedi wants to tell something but Anika stops her.Coming near to Mr.Trivedi she says-
Anika:If that is your wish,I will fulfill it no matter what.I know you don’t want to see my face or talk to me still,want to tell few things-Only your blood runs through my veins.If you are stubborn then so I am.Like you respect your principles,values,promises,I too respect those of mine.If you are not wrong in following your heart that you taught me,then I am too not.I am giving you my words-I will never come back to this house or show my face to you all.I am already dead to you.Consider it permanent from now on.And one more thing-Do take care of yourself.Don’t forget to take medicine on time or getting late in eating as I will……Anika runs towards the exit door and vanishes.Tears are gushing down from Mr.Trivedi’s eyes.Everyone runs behind her except Shivaay.He comes to him.Before he can manage to tell anything Mr.Trivedi says-
Mr.Trivedi:Joining his both the hands-Sorry to bother you in all these dear.You are my guest but I could not maintain the dignity of the hospitality of my house.Forgive me plz.He leaves wiping his tears.Shivaay stands clueless in the hall,all alone.Anika’s Mom comes to him-
Mrs.Trivedi:Shivaay dear plz stop my Anika.I know she is angry and hurt but everything will fall into places in due time.I have lost her once can’t afford it again.She cries.
Shivaay:Don’t worry Mrs.Trivedi.I am promising you,no harm will befall on Anika as long as I am alive.He leaves.Mrs.Trivedi looks on…..
