Living in an illusion Part 1
I dedicate this SS to RameshParab who wants a Harshad Sriti Abhi story from me.I dedicate this to Naina_Writes who suggested me to write a HarshIti Shabbir story on Atrangi re.This SS is loosely based on Atrangi re.
A railway station…
A man got out of the train.He was Raghavendra.Suddenly his eyes fell on a woman there.She looked worried as if she was feared of something.
He:Why does she look upset?What is bothering her?
Suddenly he thought:Why am I even thinking too much about her?Since I am a psychiatrist,maybe I over think whenever I see a person upset.Leave it.
He walked away.
Suddenly the goons ran towards that woman.She got scared.She tried to run away.They ran after her and caught her.
She yelled at them:Leave me.I will kill you all.
She was forcefully brought to a big house.An old lady stared at her.
The young woman:Dadi,why did you send these goons to catch me?
Dadi:Siya!How dare you ask this question to Geetanjali Oswal?You tried to elope with your lover shamelessly and asking me why I send people to catch you?How can a grandmother like me tolerate my grand daughter eloping with a guy?
Siya:What mistake did I do?You are not letting me live with the person I love.That’s why I tried to elope with him.If these people had not caught me,I would have gone to my Abhi’s place.
Geetanjali:Stop it.Don’t utter that person’s name.I will never let you go away with him.
Geetanjali:Because he is not yours.I will find a better person for you.
Siya:You have a reason to think that Abhi does’nt match me.But I love Abhi and I will marry only him.
Geetanjali:Then listen…you can’t defeat Geetanjali Oswal.I will get you married to the man of my choice.
Siya was irritated.
Some goons barged into Raghavendra’s room and caught him.
Raghavendra was shocked.
Raghavendra:What are you guys doing?Why are you taking me with you?
The goons did not say anything and took him to Geetanjali.Raghavendra was shocked to see her.
Raghavendra:Geetanjali Deviji!You sent goons to bring me here?
Geetanjali:Sorry.I had to do this.
Geetanjali:I want you to do something.
Raghavendra:What?But why to send goons?You could have sent me a message.I would have come here to meet you.
Geetanjali:If you had known why I called you here,you might have refused.That’s why I sent them.
Raghavendra:What do you want me to do which I will refuse?
Geetanjali:I want you to marry my grand daughter Siya.
He was shocked.
Raghavendra:What?Why did you choose me for that?
Geetanjali:You were my son’s psychiatrist.That’s how we know each other.I know you quite well.So I think you are the best for Siya.
Raghavendra:Sorry.But I am already committed.I am going to get engaged to her.
Geetanjali was shocked.
Geetanjali:You are only committed,you are not married.So marry Siya.
Raghavendra:How can you say like that?How can I break my engagement to marry the woman I have not even seen?You have no right to order me.Understand?
Suddenly Geetanjali took a gun and aimed at Raghavendra.
Geetanjali:I said..marry my grand daughter.Otherwise you will be killed.
Raghavendra was shocked and scared.
Siya was brought there forcefully.Raghavendra was shocked to see her.
He thought:She is the same lady I saw at the railway station.Guess she was upset because of her Lady Don grandmother.
Geetanjali was holding the gun and threatening them.
Geetanjali:Get married to each other.
Siya:No,i won’t.You are free to kill me.
Geetanjali:I will not kill my grand daughter.But I will kill this guy if you don’t marry him.Do you want an innocent man to get killed because of you?
Siya wept helplessly.Raghavendra felt sad for her.
Siya:Don’t kill him dadi.What’s his mistake?
Siya took a garland and put it around his neck.
Raghavendra thought:She is so innocent to agree to marry me to save a stranger like me.
Geetanjali raised her voice:Doctor!
Immediately he put the garland around Siya’s neck.He filled her hairline with vermilion.
Geetanjali created fire with a match stick.They took saath phere too around the fire.
Geetanjali smiled happily.
Geetanjali:Take her with you doctor and make sure that she does’nt elope.
Raghavendra could not open his mouth due to fear.
Raghavendra took Siya to his house.She was crying.
Raghavendra:Why are you crying?I am also a victim like you.Am I crying?
Siya:This is equal to death for me.Because I love someone else.
Raghavendra was shocked.
Raghavendra:Who do you love?
