Part 407:**Muhabbat Ki Raahon Me**

PART 407:


Shashank: Aap?

Maan: Wo main...

Shashank: Aap Ridhimaa ko kaise jaante hain?

Maan: Main... actually... main Riddhi... I mean... main...

Gazal: Ye Armaan ke friend hain.

Maan heaved a sigh of utmost relief.

Shashank: Armaan ke friend?

Maan: Ji... I'm Maan Saraswat...

Ridhimaa: Wo baahar inhi ki paintings ki exhibition hai...

Shashank: Oh... nice to meet you! The paintings are wonderful!

Maan: Thanks.

Gazal: (reminding) Ridhimaa... Armaan aapko bula rahe hain...

Ridhimaa: Mujhe kahin nahi jaana...

Armaan had taken a guitar and closed his eyes.

Armaan: To fir theek hai...

He plucked the strings of the guitar.

Armaan: Ye gaana adhoora hi rahega...

Armaan was playing the guitar very fast. Tune after tune. His fingers were getting numb. The others looked at each other. Ridhimaa came up to the stage. Armaan did not notice.

Ridhimaa: (singing shyly) Hum ko kya lena hai sab se... Tum se hi sab baatein ab se...

Armaan opened his eyes. Ridhimaa looked at him and smiled.

Ridhimaa: (singing) Ban gaye ho tum meri dua...

Armaan flung the guitar away and spread his hands wide.

Armaan: (singing) Khuda Jaane ke main fida hoon... (bringing his hands down) Khuda Jaane main mit gaya... (offering his hand to Ridhimaa for a dance) Khuda jaane yeh kyun hua hai... (Ridhimaa placed her hand on his) Ki ban gaye ho tum mere Khuda...

Gazal: (not deterring from her point and whispering to Maan) Main sirf Ridhimaa ke liye nahi... main aapse...

Maan: Enough Gazal!

Gazal went silent.

Maan: Aap mera saath dena chaahti hain?

Gazal nodded.

Maan: Aap mujhse pyar karti hain?

Gazal nodded again.

Maan: Kabse?

Gazal remained silent.

Maan: Abhi aap mujhe jaanti hi kitna hain?

Gazal: (slowly) Ye sach hai ki mere liye kisi bhi baat ke nateeje par pahunchne ke liye sirf ek lamha kaafi hota hai. Magar main jaanti hoon aise faisle lamhon me nahi hote. Isiliye maine pehli baar apne is faisle par kaafi gaur kiya hai aur mera khayaal hai aapko bhi soch lena chahiye. Main aapse sirf aapki opinion maang rahi hoon. Aur main Monday ko Sanjeevani se Delhi transfer ke liye apply kar rahi hoon.

Maan: Aap paagal to nahi ho gayi? Chaar baar aapne mujhe dekha, do baar baat ki to aapko lagne laga ki aapne ye faisla bahut soch samajh kar kiya hai? Sorry... lekin love aur infatuation me kaafi fark hota hai. Chaar din aap mujhse na milein to shaayad paanchve din main aapko yaad bhi na aaun. Pyar ek din me nahi hota aur na hi sochne-samajhne se khatm hota hai.

Meanwhile, Armaan and Ridhimaa were still dancing.

Ridhimaa: (putting her steps in tune with Armaan) Tu kahe to tere hi kadam ke main nishanon pe... Chaloon, rukoon ishaare pe...

Armaan rolled her onto him and held her from back.

Ridhimaa: (singing, getting lost with Armaan's each touch) Tu kahe to khwaabon ka, bana ke main bahana sa...

Ridhimaa turned and looked into Armaan's eyes.

Ridhimaa: (caressing Armaan's cheek) Mila karun sirhaane pe...

Armaan: (putting his hands on Ridhimaa's waist and dancing very close with her)

Ohhh...
Tum se dil ki baatein seekhi...
Tum se hi ye raahein seekhi...
Tum pe marr ke mein to... jee gaya...

Ridhimaa was getting red, with each passing second. She was melting in Armaan's arms.

Gazal: Maine aapko apni feelings bata di hain... faisla aapke haath me hai... mujhe lagta hai aap bhi mujhse...

Maan: Excuse me!

Gazal: Aapke pass sochne ke liye Monday tak ka time hai. Main aapke saath Delhi chalungi, chaahe kuch bhi ho jaaye... chaahe sirf aur sirf dost bankar.

Maan stared at Gazal. She looked determined.

Maan: Aap...

Gazal: Aur meri muhabbat itni jaldi khatm hone waali nahi... aazma ke dekh lijiyega.

Maan: Lekin...

Gazal looked at him and Maan lost courage to speak.

Gazal: Main jaanti hoon aap mujhe pasand karte hain... aur aapke adhoorepan ko meri muhabbat poora kargei... aapko aur aapki painting ko meri muhabbat ki zaroorat hai... us chehre ko poora karke dekhiyega... agar usme mera chehra nahi nazar aaya to...

Armaan pulled the blushing Ridhimaa close to himself.

Armaan: Dil kahe ke aaj to, chhupa lo tum panaahon mein... (holding Ridhimaa's face in his hands) Ki darr hai tum ko kho doonga... (Ridhimaa looked into Armaan's eyes) Dil kahe sambhal zara, khushi ko na nazar laga... (Armaan bowed his face) Ki darr hai mein to ro doonga...

Maan: (demanding) To?

Ridhimaa: (raising Armaan's face by placing her hands on either side of the face) Hooo... Karti hoon sau waade tum se... (Armaan gazed deeply into Ridhimaa's eyes) Bandhe dil ke dhaage tum se... (pulling Armaan towards herself) Ye tumhe na jaane kya hua...

Armaan and Ridhimaa hugged each other. Both were feeling afraid of losing each other and thus, did not try and separate. Armaan's recorded voice was floating in the background.

"Khuda Jaane ki main fida hun...
Khuda Jaane main mit gaya...
Khuda jaane ye kyun hua hai...
Ki ban gaye ho tum mere Khuda..."

Gazal: To...

She shrugged her shoulders.

Gazal: Main fir bhi aapka saath nahi chhodungi...

Maan: Agar main aapka saath na chaahun to?

Gazal looked at Maan with hurt eyes, got up and left, leaving Maan in deep thoughts. There was a deafening roar of applause as the song ended. Armaan and Ridhimaa looked at each other. Armaan stepped back and clapped fir Ridhimaa. Ridhimaa, blushing, indicated him to come with her. Both went down the stage and the audience started departing.

Shashank: (coming forwards) Bahut achha gaaya... tum dono ne...

Armaan: Thanks...

Ridhimaa was looking towards Maan. Maan, who now wanted to go after Gazal, stood up from his seat and started to move away.

Ridhimaa: (shrieking) Maani bhaiyya!

Maan stumbled at the shriek and hit a temporary pillar, which was standing in his way. The pillar started to fall on Maan. Ridhimaa ran towards him.

Armaan: Ridhimaa!

He too rushed forwards, pulled both Maan and Ridhimaa out of the way of harm. The pillar hit Armaan's head and rolled away.
