Hello! It is me ShonaLaado. Back with next chapter. Please don’t take my words rudely. I know all must be waiting for Sanskaar’s entry from last 9 chapters but now after this one year leap, everything will be settled.
Let’s start from where we left. The destination of Gadodias.
The car stops in front of a big and seems to be a new bungalow. Ragini steps outside the car and she pulls her veil more to cover her face completely. Shekar and Parvati too comes outside and an old lady sees them and orders a servant to bring them inside with respect. She calls her family members and a man of her age descends from stairs with a young couple. She tells them that they are coming and the three smiles. Ragini with her Papa and Dadi Maa enters the mansion. All greets them by joining their hands. Ragini goes to the same lady who is standing beside the man. She touches the couple’s feet and take blessings. She addresses them as Maasa and Papasa. The lady after blessing her moves to Parvati and takes her blessings. Parvati stops her and says, “No need of this Annapoorna Ji! You are my granddaughter’s mother-in-law.” Annu smiles and she continues, “Am I correct Durgaprasad Hi?” The man who was standing with Annu nods and Ragini then goes to the young couple but elder to her. She bends down but the lady stops her and says, “Offo Devranisa! You spent a week in your Maika and forgot what your Parineeta Bhabhisa has told you. You no need to do this, just hug me.” She takes her in a soft embrace and Ragini smiles. Parvati objects and says, “My Laado is like this only Parineeta. She hasn’t forgotten your words but is showing her respect. She is my pride and I know she will never let me down like OTHERS.” Pari understands what she’s is talking about and then leaves to bring snacks and tea for all. She asks her husband, “Adarsh Ji! Will you take coffee or tea?” The man who was standing with her replies, “Tea.” She goes to kitchen while Annu asks Ragini, “You had the sargi?” She nods and Parvati replies, “Annapoorna Ji, my Laado is very loyal to her family. She is not the one who runs behind silly dreams. For her, family is everything. She can never fail in fulfilling her duties and can never deny her elders.” All can feel that she is not praising Ragini but bashing someone indirectly. Annu tries to change the topic and says, “Today, we have to do lots of preparations as it is the first Karvachauth of Ragini as well as of us IN Kolkata. And today they are also coming.” All smiles but our curious Parvati again asks, “Who?” Annu replies, “His (Duga’s) younger brother with his family. They hadn’t came with us because of their son’s treatment. As you know, he met with an accident a year before…” She stops as her tears rolls out from her eyes. Shekar signs Dadi to end the topic and Durga tries to console her. Rag remembers.
Flashback: (around 3 months ago)
At Gadodia Mansion,
A boy of 21 years was jumping in excitement to saw his family. He then looked towards two girls, one dressed in a green anarkali suit with one-sided braid and golden jhumkas. And the other dressed in a golden half-sleeves crop top and an orange long tour skirt with an open-creative hairstyle and beautiful earrings. He ran to the skirt one girl and hugged her tightly while thanking her. She smiled widely while others looked at them surprisingly especially his family. He broke the hug and the girl told him that she didn’t wanted his thanks but wanted that smile and happiness. He stared her in amazement and then asked his family about his brother and uncle-aunt. His mother in a broken voice told him that he had met with an accident and due to his treatment, he couldn’t came here. All were left shocked and it was more paining when she revealed that it had happened just the moment when they all started their journey to Kolkata. The anarkali girl was playing with her fingers but she look little tensed. The boy Sat in his knees and the skirt girl ran to him and tried to console him. The anarkali girl was giving her a death glare and her eyes were moist to see him like this. The boy kept his head on skirt girl’s hands and cried. The girl was too in tears. She made him stand and gave him courage by her motivating words. All felt good to see them like this except the anarkali girl who left from there.
Ragini stops thinking about it as SHE and HIS togetherness strikes her mind. The anarkali girl is surely Ragini and that skirt girl is someone whom she don’t want to look at to also. She leaves from there by making the excuse to do preparations. Dadi goes behind her while Annu with tears in her eyes goes towards the temple. She joins her hands in front of the beautiful idol of Lord Krishna and Radha. Annu speaks in a broken tone, “Oh lord! Why you did this much with us? Why? What crime I have committed or what sin my family did? Why you gave us immense pain? I can’t see my family like this. And my… My San..s.. SANSKAAR… What he did? Please! I beg you! Return the happiness which we lost completely 3 months back. Please! Return that purity, that sacredness! That essence of live which made us felt alive. Give me back! I want them back! I want them back…” She ends up crying and falls on floor while the weather outside is changing. The lightning and thunder was clearly visible and audible. Wind is blowing like a storm is going to come soon. The open window causes a vase to fall down and the sound makes Annu to look up. Just then a flower which is in the hand of the idol of Krishna Ji falls on her hands. She is surprise and stares the idol with a lit of new hope in her eyes. Durga and Shekhar who are in hall with Adarsh, chatting, also hears a car’s horn’s sound from outside. It seems like someone is blowing it intentionally, may be a kid. The voice disturbs all and Pari holdings the tray come out and complains, “Who is outside? How can he blow horn like this in front of our house?” Annu with the flower and Ragini with her Dadi comes in hall. Adarsh asks a servant to see the matter and as the man opens the gate, he sees an old couple standing in front of him. He asks them who are they? The lady widens her eyes and replies, “You don’t know who am I! How dare you?” The man beside her tries to calm her and replies, “Sujata! You came here for the first time then how he will recognise you?” Suj makes a face enters the house while checking it out. (The house is same as shown in the show). She is on stairs and all are surprise to see her. The man comes from behind and then both descends from stairs and Durga says, “Ram! You came!” The man is Ramprasad with his wife Sujata Maheshwari. Before Ram can reply, Sujata answers him, “Actually Bhaisa! I told you the wrong timing of flight by mistake and you know very well that phone is not allowed in airplane.” Annu smiles and says, “No worries! Thank God you came! I was waiting for this so long.” She is talking to Sujata but her eyes are searching for someone else. Sujata understands and then looks at Ram who looks at her a little angrily. She is going to speak but stops as they hears some noises. All looks at stairs and find a boy running up while laughing and it seems like someone is chasing him. A lone tear escapes from her eye to see the boy but soo her facial expressions change from sad to super duper shock. The same happened with others as they sees a girl in pink Saree catches the boy by his arms and holds him tightly. The boy tries to free himself but her hold is very tight. Just then another girl in a frocksuit comes up shouting, “Don’t leave her BHABHI! SANSKAAR BHAI please stop now.”
