"Ridzzy tu uth gayi?", Anjali asked as she entered Riddhima's room. But she did not get a reply.

Riiddhima had shut herself in her room since the day of the protest. Curtains always closed. People hardly entered her room and even they did she hardly spoke. She was in shock at what her life had become. Everyone was worried for her.


Anjali proceeded and opened the curtains. Riddhima, who was sitting with her legs resting against her chest, hissed at this sudden exposure to sunlight.

"Riddhima kab tak aise hi rahe gi tu?", Anjali said putting her hand on Riddhima's head and sitting in front of her.

"Jab tak zindagi ki haqeeqat badal nahi jati... jab tak uss insan ki shakal mere dimagh se nikal nahi jati... jab tak uska lagaya hua wo khoon mujh pr se utar nahi jata.... tab tak mein aisi hi rahungi.... ek zinda lash...", Riddhima finally spoke with tears filling her big eyes.

"Ridzy tu kesi batein kr rhi hai? Aur dekh wo khoon to tujh pr se kb ka chala gya koi nishan tk nahi hai tere sar pr...", Anjali tried to justify things.

Riddhima looked up at Anjali and then let out a laugh. Her laugh was full of irony, irony of life. She had laughed at life, fate and destiny all the ones concomitant to her. "Mere jism pr se to uski ragon me dorte huey khoon ka rang utar gya hai... lekin meri rooh aaj bhi uske khoon mein lipti hui hai. Mera jism chand katron ka dawedar hai uska khoon mitane keliey magar meri rooh di... meri rooh pr darya bhi baha do tb bhi meri rooh rangi rahe gi.... mujhe itni nafrat rngon se kabhi nhi hui.... kbhi apne aap se itni ghin nahi ayi... kabhi nahi.... ", Riddhima said. And with this she started crying again hiding her head in her hands.

Anjali just sat there and tried to console her.

Armaan was sitting in his room drinking alcohol. Ananya entered his room and he looked at her before looking down again. "Karna kya chahte ho tum? han?? Uss larki ko sindoor to lga diya pr shadi ka matlab bhi jante ho?? Uski zindagi aur kis had tk barbaad kroge Armaan?", she shouted.

Armaan got up and went near her. " Jis had tak uski zindagi ko barbad kr paunga uss had tk karunga. Usko btaunga ke Armaan Malik ki izzat uchalne ka kya result hota hai...", he said.

"Itni nafrat kabse agyi mere bete ke dil me? Wo jisse kabhi kisi ka dard dekha bhi nahi jata tha wo aisa kese ban gaya?", she asked crying.

"Ye to apne aap se puchiye mom.", he said this and left picking up his jacket.

Shashank entered Riddhima's room. He sat by her side. She hugged him and laid her head on his welcoming chest. "Riddhima beta mein ne ek faisla kiya hai.", he said with much difficulty. Riddhima parted from him and looked at his face which had evident wrinkles today. He continued, "Beta mein ne decide kia hai ke.... ke tum... tum armaan malik se shadi kr lo." Riddhima's eyes widened with shock and tears again formed in her brown orbs. "Beta mujhse Balwinder Sahab ne baat ki ai... and yehi dono khandano ke liye behtar hai... Aur unho ne unhone mujhe tasali di hai ke tumhe udher koi pareshani nahi hogi.... Aur beta phir ab tk ye masla hal nahi hoga to ... anjali... uski shadi kese hogi... pr .. pr koi ... koi zabardasti nahi hai... tum soch lo... aur mujhe subah jawab de dena..."

Shashank kissed her forehead and left leaving her in a shock. She was sitting in the same position as her father left her. Tears reluctantly started pouring out of her eyes. She was soon whining and fell on her pillow weeping, wailing, cursing her fate.

The sun had bestowed the earth with its light once again and riddhima laid awake still. She had been thinking. Luckily after a long time her thinking had some outcome, a decision.

She came down the stairs and stood by the dining table where her father and sister sat.

"Arre ridzyy aa beth na", Anjali said.

"Mein ne kuch faisla kia hai... mein....", She looked down and let a tear fall down like a worthless and old little diamond before she continued, " Mein Armaan malik se shadi krne ke liye tayyar hun."

"Ridzyy ye tu kya keh rhi hai.", Anjali was startled.

"Ye mera faisla hai di... aur aisa hi hoga.", saying this she ran to her room. ANjali was about to go after her but shashank stopped her.
