part 66 : dard ka rishta



dadi turned hearing a sound and screamed seeing riddhima was on the floor. she came running to her and sat on her knees and started shaking her while calling her name but riddhima didn’t open her eyes. dadi got scared and yelled : “ananya,jaldi aa ...


ananya who was running behind arman,heard dadi’s scared voice and stepped back to see why dadi was screaming. arman didn’t hear dadi’s voice as he was starting his bike. he turned and saw mumma was not their but sahil came running.sahil came and uttered in his cry : “bhaiya,please bhaiya,mat jao. didi ne jo kiya bahut galat kiya par uski saza aap mujhe dadi aur annaya aunty ko kyon de rahe ho? aap jante ho aunty ko attack aa chuka hai,agar aap phir se chale gaye toh pata nahi kya ho. mujhe dar lagta hai bhaiya.”

arman uttered angrily : “par teri didi ko nahi lagta sahil,isliye jaan bujhkar aise kaam karti hai jisse meri life spoil ho.”

sahil uttered in a pleading voice : “aap unse baat mat karo,unhen ignore karo,saza unko do par aunty ko nahi.unhone bahut mushkil se aryan ko bhulaya hoga.humare liye aryan koi nahi par unke liye toh hai.par unhone humare liye usey yahan se jane diya,par agar aap is tarah kahin chale gaye to wo kaise jiyenge? “

arman uttered in a wet voice : “sahil,tu mumma ke paas reh.mai kahin nahi jaunga par abhi yahan raha to pagal ho jaunga.mai aa jaunga ,tu ghar ja.”

sahil uttered : “promise karo bhaiya.”

arman uttered holding his hands : “promise,ja tu ab.”

saying he started the bike and zoomed off. sahil looked at that side for sometime then came in room but hearing ananya’s voice ,who was calling riddhima’s name,he came in riddhima’s room and shocked getting her lying on the floor. he asked worriedly : “kya hua di ko?”

ananaya uttered worriedly : “pata nahi beta, atul aata hi hoga,phone kar diya usey.”

suddenly she asked : “arman kahan hai sahil?tune usey jane kyon diya sahil?”

sahil told lie : “aunty,bhaiya kahin nahi gaye hain.dr. oberoi ke paas gaye hain,bahut gusse me the isliye maine jane diya,kuch der me wapas aa jayenge.”

atul came in and asked worriedly : “kya hua riddhima ko? arman kahan hai?”

ananya replied : “pata nahi beta,achanak behosh ho gayi.”

atul uttered : “aur yeh arman kahan gaya isey chodkar?”

dadi : “indono me kuch kaha suni ho gayi,arman gusse me nikal gaya aur yeh behosh ho gyai.”

atul uttered surprisingly : “kamal hai,kal hi toh dono itne khush the.anyways,mai usey khub dantunga,ab choti choti baton par riddhima se usey jhagda nahi karna chahiye.”

dadi : “aisa kyon kah rahe ho beta?”

atul made riddhima lie on the bed with the help of annaya and sahil then asked : “aaplogon ko pata nahi?”

dadi asked in a tensed tone : “nahi beta,ya hua humari bachchi ko?”

atul uttered smilingly: ‘yeh riddhima bhi na,abtak sabko bata dena chahiye tha.kya arman ko nahi pata?”

annaya asked confusingly : “atul beta,hume kuch samajh nahi aa raha.”

dadi uttered : “dar se mera dill baitha ja raha beta,ab ye to nahi batayegi,tu hi bata de.”

atul uttered while injected riddhima : “riddhima hi batati to sabse achcha hota,anyways ,aapke darne ki nahi,khush hone ki aat hai,she is prenant,dadi,aap pardadi aur aunty aap dadi banne wali hain aur sahil tu mama banne wala hai.”

they looked each other confusingly the dadi uttered : “hein!itni badi baat riddhima humse chupakar rakhi! par kyon?”

atul uttered : “actually ,i think jab usey pata chla tha tabhi shayad aryan wala incident hua ya iske delhi jane ke baad isey pata chala aur socha hoga baad me aakar sabko batayegi par haalat bigadte chale gaye.”

dadi uttered in a complaining voice : “phir bhi beta,yeh agar tabhi batati to shayad arman bhi isey maaf kar deta.par kya sach me arman ko pata nahi?”

ananya uttered : “i am sure,usey pata nahi.agar pata hota to wo khushi ke maarey sari duniya sir par utha leta,mujhe pahle batata aur riddhima se naraj nahi reh sakta tha.”

atul : “anyways,maine isey injection diya hai,thodi der me yeh normal ho jayegi par issey pata na chale ki maine yeh raaz khola hai.”

ananya uttered worriedly : “ab hum kya karenge tul beta?”

atul uttered smilingly : ‘aap riddhima ko kahna arman se fight khatam kare,usey yeh good news de to wo maaf bhi kar dega. aur haan,yeh khud doctor hai par phir bhi mai anjali ke sath kisi lady doctor ko bhejta hun,wo check kar legi,ab riddhima ko gynecologist ke paas jana hoga,mere paas nahi.”

annaya and dadi nodded but they were tensed in heart. in between sahil came with a plate of sweets and uttered with a smile : ‘atul bhaiya,mooh meetha kijiye,dadi aur aunty aap bhi."

atul uttered : “sabse pahla haq meethai ka arman ka tha,anyways riddhima jagne par isey juice or soup de dijiye tab tak anjali aa jayegi,she is busy in hospital and i have to go also,sorry aunty.”

annaya uttered : ‘thank you beta,itne busy schedule me bhi aapko call karne se hi aa jate ho.”

atul uttered looking at riddhima : ‘aana hi padega iske liye aunty.waise to maine kabhi kaha nahi par riddhima meri patient ya dost se jyada meri sister lagti hai.iski life bahut mushkil rahi hai aap bhi jante hain aur mai bhi.hum sab iske life ke har ek pal ke witness hain,to har mushkil me iska sath dena meri duty hai.”

ananya and dadi nodded and atul went from there,while sahil came with him out of the house.when they came out,sahil asked : “atul bhaiya,kuch kahna tha apse.”

atul asked keeping his bag in the car : “haan bolo na sahil.”

sahil kept quiet for sometime then uttered hesitantly: “actually riddhima didi ne unke naam ki property,jo aryan ne unhe di thi,aryan ke naam kar di,arman bhaiya bahut gussa hain.”

atul uttered surprisingly : “kya kah raha hai sahil! wahan to hospital ban chuka tha aur next month uska inauguration hone wala tha aur kitne doctors is project se jude hue the,riddhima ko yeh sab pata nahi tha?”

sahil uttered sighly : “don’t know bhaiya.”

atul asked : “par usne aisa kyon kiya?”

sahil replied : “shayad aryan ne arman bhaiya se case wapas lene aur humari life se jane ki yeh kimat mangi ho.”

atul thought for sometime then uttered : “riddhima ne socha hoga ki yahi sabse easy way hai usse chutkara paane ka par usey pata nahi usne kitni badi galti ki hai.par arman kahan hai?”

sahil : “pata nahi,bahut gusse me nikal gaye par maine aunty ki baat kahi to mujhse promise kiya hai wo wapas aayenge.”

atul nodded and uttered :”riddhinma ke is haalat me tension lena thik nahi par yeh matter bahut mushkil hai.mai sham ko aata hun yahan,tu tension mat le,hum koi rasta nikalenge,chal bye.
.............................

arman didn’t know how long he was wandering around the road without any meaning.he could not understand why riddhima did this? in between dr. oberoi,dr.bhonsle,dr.olkar called him many times but he didn’t receive the call.he knew what they would tell him. many doctors were involved in this project,they invested a lump sum money in it.now what would arman reply them? he muttered: “damn it!!”

just then a car stopped in front of him and a man took out his face out of the window and yelled angrily : “marna hai to kahin aur jaiye mr...hum logon ko to problem me mat daliye.”

arman said sorry and moved from the road and came in a park nearby. he sat on a bench in the park and started thinking about the whole matter. why riddhima did this? does she still like aryan? no,its not possible. she didn’t regain her memories.he got up and thought to ask her directly why but then again sat on the bench remembering sahil’s word. he knew he was not able to control his anger and its not good for mumma.he decided to sit there for some time and then return to home but he didn’t know when he lied on that bench and sank in a deep sleep.
....................
when riddhima opened eyes,saw anjali,dadi and ananya was sitting beside her.she asked in a low tone : kya hua mujhe?”
ananya replied : “kuch nahi beta,bas chakakr aa gaya tha tujhe. abhi kaisa lag raha hai?”
riddhima nodded and uttered : “nmai thik hun mumma.”
annaya uttered : “leti reh tu,mai tere liye kuch lati hun.kya khayegi bata?”
riddhima uttered with a weak smile : “bas kuch liquid.”
ananya uttered : “ok,teri favourite soup banakar lati hun.”
anjali said dadi through her eyes to go from there.dadi uttered : “mai bhi jati hun thoda rest karti hun.”
after they going anjali uttered slowly: ‘tujhe chakakr kyon aaya pata hai kya?”
riddhima nodded in na : ‘nahi.”
anjali uttered caressing her cheeks : “arman ko batayi hai?”
riddhima startled hearing it. she asked : “kya?”
anjali : ‘you are pregnant.”
riddhima looked at her sometime then uttered slowly : “nahi.”
anjali uttered ..hmmm...”then kept quiet.
after a while riddhima uttered : “sabko pata chal gaya?”
anjali nodded in yes and uttered : “sab bahut khush hain.”
riddhima uttered in a teary voice : “arman bahut gussa hai mujhpar.”
anjali : “tune kaam hi aisa kiya hai riddhzi.at least usey puchna chahiye tha.”
riddhima bent her head then asked after sometime looking at anjali : ‘wo kahan hai anjali?”
anjali replied nodding : ‘don’t know,sahil bata raha tha kisi doctor se milne gaya hai,sahil se baat hui hai uski.”
riddhima uttered wiping tears : “wo phir se ghar chodkar chala to nahi jayega?”
anjali uttered : ‘nahi,sahil is very intelligent.usne arman ko ananya aunty ki baaten kahi to usne kaha wo wapas aa jayega par is baar teri baari hai maafi mangne ki.waise tune aisa kyon kiya mai samajh sakti hun,shayad arman ko bachane ke liye par jab wah ghar aaya to usey batana chahiye tha tujhe.”

riddhima uttered in a teary voice : “maine kal koshish ki thi anjali par wo itna khush tha kuch sunna nahi chahta tha.mai kal se usey baar baar kah rahi thi ki kuch batana hai par wah sunne ke mood me hi nahi tha.”

anjali uttered : “aur tere batane se pahle hi usey pata chal gaya aur wo aur jyada gussa ho gaya.anyways, ab jyada sochne se teri health par asar hoga aur uska asar bachche par hoga.don’t worry ,sab thik ho jayega,arman ko bas thoda time de”

riddhima nodded.
anjali : ‘maine dr. kirti se batein ki to wo khud hi aayegi tujhse milne,yani tujhe check bhi kar legi.”
ananya came with hot soup and sweets and kept it on the table then uttered looking at riddhima : “beta,itina bada good news humey bataya kyon nahin?”

riddhima bent her head.

ananya uttered caressing her hairs : “anyways ab to hume pata chal gaya hai,dekhna arman bhi bahut khush hoga.” then turned to anjali and uttered giving her sweets : “le beta.”

anjali took sweets and asked ananya : “arman ko aapne call kiya aunty?”

ananya uttered : “haan beta,par tu janti hai to call pick nahi karta wo.par mujhe bharosa hai wo aa jayega thodi der me.”
........................
arman opened eyes feeling cold and surprised to see that it was evening. he had slept here for long time .his stomach started growling because of hunger. he got up and tried to remember where his bike was but didn’t remember. he remembered all incidents and thought to not to return home but suddenly sahil’s words echoed in his ears. mumma was surely worried for him.he took out mobile and got it was switched off as charge was finished. he decided to return to home so caught a taxi and back to home.when he moved down from the taxi,saw mumma and sahil was sitting out of the house.sahil was talking with mumma in a low voice and mumma was nodding in yes or no.hearing taxi’s sound they looked and both yelled his name happily. sahil ran to him and hugged him tightly where mumma came and started crying holding his hand. arman addressed to sahil : “i promised you sahil.dekho mai wapas aa gaya hun.”

sahil mumbled : “thank you bhaiya.” and hugged him tightly.

ananya uttered touching his cheek: “aise koi karta hai kya beta haan? hum kitna call kar chuke hain,tera phone switch off hai,kahan tha itne der tak”

suddenly she uttered in a surprising tone : “arey,tera badan to garam tave ki tarah jal raha hai..tujhe toh bukhar hai arman.’

arman uttered in a weak voice : “nahi mumma ,mai thik hun.”
sahil also noticed and said : “haan bhaiya,aapko bahut fever hai,chalo aap andar.”
arman was feeling drowsy so came inside with sahil but addressed him :”mai yahin thik hun sahil.”
ananya understood he didn’t want to go in his room so she addressed sahil : “sahil beta,bhaiya ko mere room me le jakar sula de,mai atul ko phone karti hun.”

sahil nodded and took him in annaya’s room and uttered : “bhaiya aap ab chupchap so jao.”

arman was not able to reply so lied on the bed silently.sahil covered him with a blanket and sat beside him .
.......................
annaya called atul,told him about arman and came in riddhima’s room and saw riddhima was sleeping and dadi was sittting on a chair .actually annaya told dadi to take care of riddhima.ananya came there and whispered to dadi : “arman wapas aa gaya hai aunty.”
dadi uttered happily : ‘bhagwan ko bahut bahut dhanyvad,kahan hai wo?”
annaya whispered : “dheere boliye,asal me usey bahut jyada fever hai,maine atul ko call kiya hai,aata hi hoga.”
dadi whispered : “hey bhagwan!yeh humare bachche ko kiski nazar lag gayi..tu ja uske paas ananya,main yahi hun.”
ananya uttered in a low voice : “riddhima ko batane ki jarurat nahi,bas itna kahna ki naraj hai isliye nahi aa raha,aayega apne aap jab gussa kam hoga.”
dadi nodded and uttered : “thik hai,usne pucha kuch riddhima ke baarey me?”
annaya replied : “nahi,aur mujhe lagta hum uske samne riddhima ka naam naa len to behtar hoga.”
dadi uttered ; “thik hai beta,tu ja apne bachche ke paas.”
ananya nodded and went from there.dadi leaned against the wall and closed her eyes. actually she was also got tired because of those problems which came suddenly in their life.riddhima,who’s sleep broke hearing arman’s name,had heard their conversation. her eyes started raining while making wet the pillow.she said in heart : “sorry arman,maine to ab tumhare paas jane ka haq bhi kho diya hai.please mujhe maaf kar do aur apne paas bula lo.”
