Soul Mate (First Day) Part 6

Shergil House

Drishti is waiting outside of Shergil House. She checks time on her phone.

Drishti: Time to ho gaya par Rakshit sir kaha hai? Sach mein inka time ka koi sense nehi hai. Main kitne der aise khari rahungi? Sir ko phone kar k bhi koi faida nehi aur msg to ye seen bhi nehi kar rahe hai. Matlab jarurat kiska hai, unka na. Unko apne beti ki protection chaihie, maine to jake nehi bola na j Rakshit sir please mujhe apke beti k bodyguard bana dijiye. To yaha mere liye welcome karne k liye kuch rakha kiyun nehi. Ab main kya karoo, ander jau yaha nehi? Chal hi jati hu, kya hoga. Shayad unhone andar kisiko bolke rakha hoga ki main ane wala hu. Chal Drishti andar chal hi ja. Is Rakshit sir k varosa mein agar yaha khari rehegi to kuch nehi milne wala tujhe.
I’m on time here but where is Rakshit sir? He seriously have no sense of time. Till when I’ll stand like this? There is no point in calling him and he is not reading my msg either. He is the one who is in need. He needs protection for his daughter, I didn’t ask for this job. Then why he doesn’t have anything here for my welcome. Now what I’m supposed to do, should I go inside or not? I think I should go, how bad could happen. Maybe he have informed someone inside already about me. Drishti, let’s go inside. If you keep standing here for Rakshit sir you will not get anything.

Drishti comes in front of the main door. It is closed. She press the bell and waits but no one opens the gate. She presses the bell again but still no one opens. She sighs and gets inside magically. She looks around for someone but the room was empty. Suddenly a women from a side comes towards her in speed.

 Suddenly a women from a side comes towards her in speed

Ojaswini: Kab se bell baje jarehe. Darwaja kiyun nehi khul rahi ho.
The bell is ringing from a long time. Why aren’t you opening the door.

Seeing her Drishti goes forward and tries to talk with her but she doesn’t let her speak.

Drishti: Ma’am….

Ojaswini: Ab ghar ka ye chote mote kaam agar humein karna pare to itne sare nauker kiyun rakhe hai hum.
If we had to do these types of work in the house, then why do we keep so many servents.

Ojaswini doesn’t let Drishti talk and opens the door. But there is no one outside.

Ojaswini: Kamal hai, koi bhi nehi hai. Sayed koi gate nehi khola isiliye jo bhi aye the chala gaya.
Weird, there is no one here. Maybe no one opened the gate that’s why whoever had came had gone away.

Ojaswini closed the door and looks at Drishti.

Ojaswini: Aise khari rehne k jaga agar waqt pe darwaja khule hote to jo bhi aya tha wo aise chali nehi jata. Tumhe ya naukri di kisne?
If you had opened the door instead of standing like this then whoever had come wouldn’t have gone away. Who gave you this job?

Drishti looks at her surprised. That’s when another woman comes there.

Ash: Ojas, kya hua? Subha subha kiyun apna redio chalu kiya hai? Ab kya main din k shuruat bhi tumhare shakal dekhke karoo?Ojas, what happened? Why have you opened your radio in the morning? Do I have to start the day now seeing your face?

Ash: Ojas, kya hua? Subha subha kiyun apna redio chalu kiya hai? Ab kya main din k shuruat bhi tumhare shakal dekhke karoo?
Ojas, what happened? Why have you opened your radio in the morning? Do I have to start the day now seeing your face?

Ojaswini: Agar meri shakal nehi dekhna hai to yaha ayahi kiyun Ashlesa?
If you don’t want to see my face then why did you came here in the first place Ashlesa?

Ash: Uff, kitni bar bolu Ashlesa nehi, Ash, mujhe Ash bulaiya karo.
Uff, how many times I have to tell you not Ashlesa, Ash, call me Ash.

Drishti tries to talk but doesn’t get a scope between their fight. A guy comes between them.

Daksh: Ap dono fer shuru hogaye?You two started again?

Daksh: Ap dono fer shuru hogaye?
You two started again?

Ojaswini: Daksh, main nehi, tera ma ne shuru kia hai isbar.
Daksh, not me, this time your mom started.

Ash: Ojas, Daksh mera beta hai. Tum jitna bhi koushis karo wo mujhei support karega. Daksh, suruat maine nehi Ojas ne ki thi. Main to apni subah ki cha pi rahi thi, ye kisiko dat rahi thi wo sunke main yaha aya.
Ojas, Daksh is my son. Whatever you do he will support me. Daksh I didn’t start, Ojas did. I was having my morning tea, I heard that she is rebuking someone that’s why I just came to see what happened.

Ojaswini: Ashlesa jhoot mat bolo. Tumne agese ake…
Ashlesa don’t tell lie. You came forward first……

Daksh: Ap dono ko chup karana mera kaam nehi hai. Bari mom, bari mom ap kaha hai?
It’s not my job to stop you two. Bari mom, bari mom where are you?

A woman comes there.

Mahima: Tum log fer se suru hogaye

Mahima: Tum log fer se suru hogaye. Kya hua isbar?
You guys started again. What happened this time?

Daksh comes to her and places his hands on her shoulder.

Daksh: Bari mom ap agaye ab samval liye in logo ko. Mera bas ki baat nehi hai.
Bari mom you are here, now handle this two. I can’t handle it.

Ojaswini: Mahima bhabi accha hua ap ayi, dekhie na ye “Ash” mujhe kya bol rahi hai.
Mahima bhabi it’s good that you are here, see what this “Ash” is saying.

Ash: Mahima bhabi, maine kuch bhi nehi bola. Maine yaha dekh ne k liye aya ki Ojas kisko dat rahi hai.
Mahima bhabi I didn’t say anything. I just came here to see whom is Ojas rebuking.

Mahima: Ojaswini tum kisko dat rahi ho?
Ojaswini whom are you rebuking?

Ojaswini points at Drishti.

Ojaswini: Is larki ko bhabi. Kab se bell baji jara he aur darwaja na khulke khari thi isiliye isko dat rahi thi. Par bich mein “Ash” ake mujhe…..
This girl, bhabi. The bell was ringing for a long time and she didn’t open the door that’s why. But this “Ash” came in between and………

Daksh: Wait a second. Maine sayed tumhe iske pahle office mein dekha hai. Tum to yaha nehi kaam karte, right?
Wait a second. I think I have seen you at office. You don’t work here, right?

Drishti gets overwhelmed with joy as she finally gets a chance to talk.

Drishti: Thank you sir. Ha main yaha nehi kaam karti hu. Main Drishti Sharma hu, Rakshit sir k under kaam karti hu office mein.
Thank you sir. Yes I don’t work here. I’m Drishti Sharma, I work under Rakshit sir at office.

Daksh: To tum yaha kya kar rahi ho?
Then what are you doing here?

Drishti starts to talk but Ojaswini stops her before even starting.

Ojaswini: Use choro, Mahima bhabi ap pehle ye sunie Ashlesa ne mujhe kya kaha.
Forget her, Mahima bhabi first listen to me what Ashlesa have told me.

Ash: Ojas kitni bar bolu Ashlesa nehi Ash.
Ojas how many times I have to tell you not Ashlesa but Ash.

Ash and Ojaswini gets into fight again. Mahima and Daksh tries to calm them down. Drishti tries to talk but none listens her. Suddenly a voice comes from behind her. Drishti turns and sees a guy at the staircase.

Romi: Ap Drishti Sharma hai?You are Drishti Sharma?

Romi: Ap Drishti Sharma hai?
You are Drishti Sharma?

Drishti nods.

Romi comes down and stands beside her.

Romi: Ap Rakshit bhai k office mein kaam karte hain? Abhi abhi join kiya hai? Apka interview Rakshit bhai ne khud…..
You work at Rakshit bhai’s office? Joined recently? Your interview was taken by Rakshit bhai…..

Drishti: Ha ha mein wohi Drishti hu. Tumhe Rakshit sir ne bataye hai kya ki main ane wali hu?
Yes yes I’m that Drishti. Did Rakshti sir have told you that I was coming?

Romi: Unbelievable. Drishti Sharma humare ghar mein! Kitna suna hai apke barein mein. Ek selfie le sakta hu?
Unbelievable. Drishti Sharma is in our house! I have heard so much about you. Can I take a selfie?

Drishti gets puzzled, smiles a little bit.

Drishti: Mere bare mein? Rakshit sir ghar mein mera itna praise karte hai kya?
About me? Does Rakshit sir praises about me in his house?

Romi takes a selfie with Drishti. Then he gets busy in his phone.

Romi: Wo kiyun bolega.
Why he would say.

Drishti tries to ask him something but he goes to another side and gets busy on his phone. Drishti looks at him and then at the crowd who are still busy in quarreling. She tries to speak but no one is listening to her. Romi sends their selfie to someone and writes a message – Drishti Sharma is in our house. A girl was coming down from the stairs while checking her phone.

Rashi: Kya! Drishti Sharma hamare ghar mein!What! Drishti Sharma in our house!

Rashi: Kya! Drishti Sharma hamare ghar mein!
What! Drishti Sharma in our house!

Drishti hears her voice and looks back. Rashi looks up and sees Drishti in front of her. She gets excited seeing her. Drishti goes towards her but she goes towards Romi and they started chatting. Sometimes they looks at Drishti and smiles. Drishti tries to talk with them but they don’t listen to her, neither the others. All are busy in talking among themselves. Slowly Drishti gets angry. She suddenly shouts.

Drishti: Silence.

Everyone gets freeze in their position, as if they are statue. Drishti smiles and goes around them.

Drishti: Kya hua. Ab bolo. Kisike mukh mein ab auaj nehi hai kiyun? Kab se bol bol k mera dimag kharap kar diya. Kab se main ek baat bolne ki koushis kar raha hu par koi bolne ka maukai nehi de rahe hai. Are bhai jab dekh rahe ho ki koi bahar se aya hai to use chai pani, kiyun aya hai, kya jarurat hai pucho. Nehi sabko apne personal bato se time hi nehi mil raha hai. Accha hua freeze kar dia. Ab raho sab statue banke. Main nehi karungi kisiko bhi unfreeze.
What happened. Talk now. Why no one is talking now? You guys made my headache by talking so much. I have been trying to talk for so long but you are not giving me a single chance. When someone comes from outside you have to ask for water, why the person is here, if she needs anything. But no, everyone is busy in themselves. It’s good that I have freezed everyone. Now keep standing like statue. I’m not going to make anyone unfreeze.

Drishti smiles and sits on a chair. Everyone stays statue. Drishti brings out her earphone and starts lisenting to music. She starts dancing in music’s tune. She puts out earphone and starts the music loudly and starts dancing around the hall. She dances around everyone. Rakshit was coming down from the stairs, looking something in his phone. He hears music and looks ahead and gets surprised. He sees Drishti dancing and everyone standing like statue. He comes down slowy, Drishti doesn’t notice him. While dancing, she comes very close to him. Rakshit keeps looking at her. Drishti turns and sees Rakshit direct in front of her. Suddenly the music stops and everyone unfreeze. They keep talking like they were doing a few minutes ago, as if they haven’t any idea what happened here. Drishti and Rakshit keeps looking at each other. Romi and Rashi notice them but they smile and keep talking. Rakshit’s look doesn’t express anything, while Drishti have a “got caught” face.

Drishti: Wo…..apke gharwale……mere baat nehi sun rahe the, kab se bolne ki koushis kar rahi thi ki main kaun hu, kiyun ayi hu par koi chance e nehi de rahe the. Bolne ki mauka nehi de rahe the bas baate kare ja rahe the. To maine.. un logo ko…. bas aisei……
Your……..family members……..were not listening to me, I was trying to speak for a long time that who I am, why did I came but no one was giving me a chance. They didn’t give me a chance to speak, they just kept talking among themselves. So I…..just…..made them…….

Rakshit looks at Drishti’s phone and earphone which she was still holding. Drishti looks at her phone following Rakshit’s sight and then at Rakshit.

Drishti: Wo mujhe bahut gussa arahi thi to main calm down hone k liye music sun rahi thi, aur aur …. excercise ha excercise kar rahi thi.
Well I was getting very angry so I was listening to music  to stay calm, and and……..excercise yes I was doing excercise.

Rakshit: Hmm, dekha maine.
Hmm, I saw.

Drishti smiles to cover up what she did.

Rakshit: Ek baat bolo, mere ghar wale tumhe baat karne ki mauka nehi de rahe the? Ye mujhe tum ekin karne ki liye bol rahe ho?
Tell me something, my family members weren’t letting you talk? You are asking me to believe this?

Drishti: Kya bol rahe hai ap. Kabse main bolne ki kousis kar rahi hu koi mujhe auaj tak nikal ne de rahi hai. Ap mujhe complain karte hai na ki main jada bolti hu, apko bolne ka mauka nehi deti hu. Actual mein problem mujh me nehi, ap mein hai. Apki family wale hamesha aisei baat karte hoge aur apko kabhi bolne ka mauka nehi mila hoga. Fer aise chalte chalte ab ap kisike samnei kuch nehi bol pate. Aur mujhe kahte hai ki mai bolne ka chance nehi deti hu.
What are you saying. I have been trying to talk for so long but they were not giving me a single chance to speak. You keep complaining me that I talk too much, I don’t give you chance talk. You know what, the problem is in you, not in me. Your family members always talk too much like this and you must have not got a chance to talk. Then this has become a habbit of yours, now you can not talk before anyone. And you keep telling me that I don’t give you a chance to talk.

Rakshit: Fer mujhe bolne ka chance nehi de rahe ho. Thora kam bolo.
You again are not giving me any chance to talk. Talk less.

Drishti: Hey, maine bola tha ki mere bolne pe ap ban nehi laga sakte hai. Main fer chala.
Hey, I had told you that you can’t ban me to talk. I’ll go then.

Drishti turns to leave.

Rakshit: Rukho.
Stop.

Drishti stops. Everyone else hear Rakshit’s voice and looks at him. Rakshit was looking at Drishti. Drishti turns towards Rakshit, Rakshit looks at everyone else.

Rakshit: Mujhe ap logo ko ek jaruri baat bolna hai. Ye Drishti hai, Drishti Sharma.
I have to tell something important to you. This is Drishti, Drishti Sharma.

Drishti turns at everyone else and smiles.

Rakshit: Aj se ye yaha pe Pari ka caretaker ki kaam karegi, ise maine appoint kia hai. Aj se Pari k har kaam ki responsibility Drishti ki hai.
She is going to work here as Pari’s caretaker from today, I have appointed her. Pari’s every responsibility is her from today.

Ojaswini: Rakshit aise achanok se kaise?
Rakshit, all of a sudden?

Daksh: Ek second, bhai. Ye larki to hamare office mein kaam karti thi na?
One second, bhai. This girl works at our office, right?

Rakshit: Ha Drishti ab tak office mein hi kaam kar rahi thi, par kuch khas reasons k liye ab se ye ghar par Pari k caretaker ki job karegi. Aur maine ye decision puri tara soch k liya hai. I hope ap logo ka koi problem nehi hai isme?
Yes Drishti used to work at office till now, but for some special reasons she will work here from now on as Pari’s caretaker. And I have taken this decision after thinking about it properly. I hope you guys have no problem, right?

Mahima: But Rakshit, Pari agar Drishti se comfortable nehi hui to? Uske barein mein to socha hai na tumne?
But Rakshit, if Pari doesn’t get comfortable with Drishti then? Have you thought about her, right?

Rakshit: That won’t be a problem.

Pari: Drishti aunty.

Everyone looks up. Pari comes running from upstair and stops before Drishti. Drishti sits down on ground and gets on Pari’s level. She smiles.

Pari: Ap yaha?
You here?

Drishti: Apse milne ayi hu.
I’ve come to meet you.

Rakshit: Sref milnei nehi, aj se Drishti har waqt apke sath rahegi.
Just not to meet, from today Drishti will always stay with you.

Pari: Sach?
Really?

Drishti nods smiling. Pari claps in joy. She holds Drishti’s hand and pulls her.

Pari: Chaliye, main apko meri kamra dikhati hu.
Let’s go, I’ll show you my room.

Rakshit: Ha wo to dikhau ge, but abhi kya apne nasta kia hai? Abhi tak nehi kia hai na? To fer jake age breakfast kijiye. Baad mein Drishti aunty se baat kijiye.
Yes you will do that, but did you have breakfast? You haven’t, have you? Then go ahead and have breakfast first. Talk to Drishti aunty later.

Drishti: Ap jaiye. Main yahi hu, ap ke room thori der baad dekhungi. Pehle ap breakfast kar lijiye.
You go ahead. I’m here, I’ll see your room later. First you have your breakfast.

Pari: OK.

Pari goes. Rakshit turns at everyone.

Rakshit: Mom I hope apko apki sawal ki jawab mil gayi hai.
Mom I hope you have got answers of your questions.

Daksh: Arey, mera office k liye late ho gaya. Thori der pehlei to 10 minute haat mein tha. Dekha, ap logo ka jhagra k chakkar mein time kab chala gaya pata hi nehi chala. Main chalta hu. Bhai ap arahe hai na?
Hey, I’m late for office. A few moments earlier I had ten minutes time in my hand. For you guys I got late. I’m going. Bhai, you are coming right?

Rakshit: Tu nikal, main araha hu.
You go ahead, I’m coming.

Daksh goes out of the house. Ash and Ojaswini again start fighting but Mahima takes them away. Rashi and Romi go from there too. Rakshit turns at Drishti.

Rakshit: Suno.
Listen.

Drishti comes towards him fast and stops in front of him.

Drishti: Ji.
Yes.

Rakshit: Tumhe Pari k safety k liye bola hai. Ye mera family members hai, agese inke sathe aisa kuch bhi nehi karna.
I asked for Pari’s safety. These are my family members, do not do anything like this with them in future.

Drishti nods. Rakshit calls a stuff.

Rakshit: Aj se ye Pari ko samvalegi. Pari ka pura shedule inko samajh dijiye ga.
She is going to handle Pari from now. Inform her Pari’s whole shedule.

Stuff: Ji sir.
Yes sir.

Rakshti looks at Drishti.

Rakshit: Main office ja raha hu. Tum inke sath jau, tumhe sab kuch samjha dege. Office se ake baat karta hu.
I’m going to office. You go ahead with him, he will give you the details. I’ll talk later.

Drishti nods. Rakshit turns to leave, Drishti goes with the stuff. She turns and looks at Rakshit going, then turn back again. Rakshit turns and looks at Drishti going and then turns back and goes.

Next: Romi and Rashi teases Rakshit showing Drishti’s pic. Rakshit gets surprised seeing Drishti’s pic.
