Part 55 : Dard ka rishta


Riddhima reached their house with dadi and sahil but on the way ,dadi and sahil both didn’t talk with her. Dadi tried to show that she was sleeping and sahil made busy himself with mobile games.when they reached home,riddhima was surprised to see that the house is neat and clean and arranged as someone lived there. She asked in a surprising tone : “yahan koi rahta hai kya?”
Dadi replied : ‘nahi..

Riddhima asked : “toh phir sab cheezen itne sambhalkar rakhe hue kaise hain aur kitna clean hai.”

Dadi uttered in an annoyed tone : “haan,teri wo saas hai na ,ananya..wahi..jo tujhe apni beti se jyada pyar karti hai,usne hi sab kuch arrange kiya hai.”

They heard the care taker’s voice : “aaplogon ka saman ander rakh diya hai,kuch bana dun aaplogon ke liye? Meri wife abhi aa jayegi,jo chahiye aap bata dena.”
Riddhima  hesitated a bit then asked : “ummm..wo wash room kidhar hai ?”
The care taker looked at her surprisingly then uttered : “ upar right side.”
After he went riddhima uttered : “wo aise kyon dekh raha tha?
Sahil,who was standing near the window and looking outside,replied : “sare ghar me aapke photo lage hain di,usey aisa laga hoga ki aapka ghar hai aur aapko hi pata nahi .”

Riddhima looked around and saw her photo was there with a lady and some places  with little sahil and the lady and some places with a gentle man. She understood they were her mumma papa. Suddenly she felt crying.why she couldn’t able to recollect her memories. She had forgotten her mumma papa. She forgot this house..this place and everything. she started feeling guilty to take dadi and sahil here forcefully. She forgot everything but sahil  only tried to forgot everything for riddhima’s sake. And dadi also sacrificed for her but she was so selfish,dragged them in this place again.

Dadi  uttered in a tensed voice : “riddhima,jyada soch mat.apne dimag me jor mat daal. Yahan na atul hai aur na arman.tujhe kuch ho gaya toh mai arman ko kya jawab dungi?”

Riddhima uttered : “mujhe kuch nahi hoga dadi aur arman ko kuch batane ki jarurat nahi,mai khud ko sambhal sakti hun.”

Suddenly dadi got angry and uttered : “haan..ab tak kitna sambhalti aayi hai mujhe pata hai. Arman na hota toh tera kya hota kabhi socha hai? Us bhale insaan ki bhalayi ka faida utha rahi hai tu.”

Sahil uttered : “ab aap dono fight mat karo,waise bhi yahan aakar mumma papa ki badi yaad aane lagi hai..”saying he wiped tears and went from there.

Riddhima felt sorry for sahil so kept quiet and went towards the kitchen but heard dadi was saying : “udhar kitchen hai,tera room upar hai,upar jakar right side..is ghar ka sabse bada aur sabse khubsurat,hawadar room,tere papa ne tere liye specially banvaya tha.”

Riddhima nodded and came upstairs.the room was really very beautiful and decorated. She sighed and went for freshen up. She was amazed thinking that ananya didn’t call her.she knew arman was angry on her but why ananya aunty also didn’t call.Was she angry on her or arman stopped her to do so. After freshened up.she opened the balcony door and came there. A beautiful decorated garden was in front of the house. she saw some kids were playing there.they were about 3-4 years age. Riddhima  saw that they were running,suddenly the younger kid fell and started crying. A lady came running there ,who was looking like the kid’s dadi ,she picked the kid in his arm and trying  to  stop his crying..riddhima felt that lady  was like ananya..and the kid was like her kid,who was growing in her womb..their baby..her and arman’s baby..she caressed womb and mumbled : “sorry arman..tumse maine tumhara haq cheen liya hai….par mai tumhe batana nahi chahti arman.i know tumhe pata chalega toh tum mujhse dur nahi ja paoge par hum ab sath sath nahi rah sakte.”

Suddenly her mobile started buzzing..she came running in her room thinking it would be ananya’s call or arman’s but its an unknown number.she  sighed  and came in downstairs and saw sahil was sitting there with an album in his hand. She came and sat beside sahil and looked those pics which were of her mumma papa and their family.sahil uttered without looking at her : “arman bhaiya ko call kar lo.”

Riddhima asked tensedly : “kyon? Kya hua usey?

Sahil  stared her and mocked  : “kya hoga? Bahut khush hai aapse peecha chuta.”

Riddhima knew sahil was very angry on her so she kept quiet.after some time sahil uttered while turning the pages of album : “bhaiya ka phone aaya tha,aapke barey me puch raha tha.bahut sad hai par mujhse kaha ki aapko na bataun wo sad hai.”

Riddhima smiled sighly .

Sahil uttered : “aur bhaiya ne kaha hai raat ko aap dadi ya mere room me soya karein,akaele nahi.”

Riddhima replied : “kyon?mai choti bachchi hun kya?

Sahil kept quiet for some time then uttered : “jab aap dar jati ho toh choti bachchi hi ban jati ho.”

Riddhima uttered angrily : “mai bahut pahle darti thi,ab nahi darti.”

Sahil : “haan,bhaiya sath the na ,par ab toh aap akele ho,dar sakti ho.”

Riddhima uttered : “achcha thik hai,mai dadi ke room me so jaya karungi,tu ab chup rah.”

Sahil kept silence for some time then again uttered : “mai soch raha hun ki aap yahan karoge kya?
Riddhima : ‘means?
Sahil uttered like a big boy : “yahan na arman bhaiya hain,satane ke liye,na ananya aunty hain,aapki farmayish puri karne ke liye aur na hi aapke friends hain.phir karogi kya aap?

Riddhima uttered : “tu kya karega yahan?

Sahil : “wo toh aapko pata hai,aap hi humey lekar aayi hai na yahan.”

Riddhima understood sahil didn’t want to stay here and very angry on riddhima so she got up and stepped to the outside but heard sahil’s voice : “kahan ja rahi ho aap?”

Riddhima replied : “ab yahan toh tu  mujhe chain se baithne nahi dega ,isliye bahar ja rahi hun.”
Sahil uttered : “wait,mai bhi aata hun.”
Riddhima : “kyon?mai nahi ja sakti kya?”
Sahil answered : “nahi,kyonki aapko  yahan kuch pata nahi aur aapko akele chodne ko bhaiya ne mana kiya hai.”

Riddhima uttered angrily : “bhaiya ..bhaiya..bas yahi bole ja  raha hai tab se. tere bhaiya ko phone kar aur kah de usey itni fikr karne ki jarurat nahi.”

Dadi uttered coming there : “wo fikr nahi karega toh koun karega riddhima? Aryan? Jo tujhe us haalat me akele chodkar chala gaya tha? Jiske barey me tu yeh sab kah rahi hai ab tak wahi tujhe sambhalta aaya hai..tera pati hai wo.”

Riddhima uttered annoyedly : “aaplogon ko arman ke siva kuch yaad bhi hai?”

Dadi uttered : ‘tujhe bhi nahi tha itne dino tak riddhima.achanak se yeh tujhme kya pagalapan  paida ho gaya jo aisa behave kar rahi hai? Wo tera pati hai..tere har mushkil me,such-dukh me tere sath raha hai,kuch toh soch tu.”

Riddhima uttered in a wet voice : “nahi jarurat thi dadi.mere hosh me aane ke baad mujhe agar sab sach sach bata dete toh mai shayad ab tak sambhal bhi jati aur nahi toh shayad is duniya se chali jati par is tarah  jeena toh nahi padta jo apne hi mumma papa ko bhulkar ,apne ghar ko bhulakar hi  ek alag zindagi hi jeeti aayi ab tak aur  ab  toh wo bhi jhutha lag raha hai..”

Saying she went to the outside hurriedly. Dadi uttered looking at sahil : “ja beta,apni di ka khyal rakh vurna tere arman bhaiya ko hum kya jawab denge.”

Sahil nodded and followed riddhima.
…………………………….
Arman   tried to concentrate on his work but couldn’t .he understood riddhima wanted to go away from him but he didn’t want to create any pressure on her. He wanted riddhima herself understood, realized his love and come back to him. He came in the firescape and sat there silently. He had no wish to talk to anyone only to sit silently. He was sitting there sometime but the door opened and someone came there. Arman turned and saw it was tamanna.she uttered : ‘sorry dr. arman ,maine aapko disturb kiya par riddhima kyon nahi aayi aaj? Wo thik toh hai?suna tha thodi sick thi.”

Arman uttered : “haan thik hai tamanna,koi kaam tha?

Tamanna : “nahi bas sid se milne aayi thi aur pata chala toh socha aapse puch lun,kab aayegi wo?”

Arman : “actually wo apne ghar Mumbai gayi hai,kuch din baad aayegi.”

Tamanna : “oh, missing her…ok dr. arman..bye..

After she went arman looked at his mobile screen where riddhima’s pic was ,caressed it and uttered : “wapas aa jao riddhima..missing you  badly…
………………………………..
Riddhima got up on the bed with a jerk.she was sleeping in dadi’s room but suddenly that nightmare again came and she started shivering. She looked at dadi who was snoring loudly in her sleep.

Riddhima got that she was sweating badly. She moved down from the bed and came to the window and looked at the road but scared seeing the dark lonely road…she felt that without arman  her life was also empty like this road. she didn’t know where this road was going..where was it’s  destination……same like her life which has no value  without arman…

Love you all
