part 67 : dard ka rishta

                       
when atul came in arman’s room ,saw arman had high temparature. he checked him and uttered with a tensed face : ‘arman,i think tujhe blood test karvana chahiye,actually i am suggesting to admit in hospital.”

ananya asked worriedly : “kyon beta? aap aisa kyon kah rahe ho?”
atul uttered looking at ananya : “ab arman khud doctor hai toh wo samajh gaya hoga mai kya kahna chahta hun.”
arman uttered in a weak voice : “i understood atul.you are suspecting its typhoid,symptoms are like this.’
atul uttered in a scolding voice : “jab tu samajh hi gaya tha to immediately phone karna tha.you know na its not a joke.”
arman uttered with a pale smile : “jo hota hai hone de atul.mai thak gaya hun apni life se.ab jine ki chah hi nahi rahi.”
hearing it ananya started crying where atul uttered angrily : “fever se lagta hai dimag bhi kaam karna band kar diya hai.”
annaya uttered in her cry : “atul beta,ab kya hoga? arman aisi baaten kyon kah raha hai?”
anjali ,who was listening all silently from the doorstep,came there and uttered angrily : “aunty,lagta hai is idiot ko aapse bilkul pyar nahi,ek aryan ne pahla attack dilvaya aapko aur ab yeh dusra dilvayega.”
arman didn’t reply and closed his eyes.atul called the ambulance and addressed anjali : “anji,riddhima se puchkar iske kuch kapde baigairah le lo aur haan usey kahna ghabraye nahi,arman thik ho jayega.”
anjali nodded but arman opened his eyes and made a sound: “huh!”
then said : “wo kyon ghabrayegi,mai mar jaun to usey koi farak nahi padega.”
anjali uttered angrily : “chopp! ab ek bhi faltu baat ki to teri meri dosti ka the end ho jayega.”
atul uttered : “iska dimag kaam nahi kar raha anjali,leave him.jao,abhi ambulance aa jayega.”
anjali nodded and came to annaya and said holding her hands : “don’t worry aunty,mai ,atul aur is nalayak ke sabhi dost wahan honge,aur isey ekbaar thik hone do,phir aisi pitayi karungi iska mai...”
ananya wiped tears and uttered : “beta,mai bhi jaungi iske sath.”
atul : “but aunty,aap jayengi toh riddhima ka khyal koun rakhega? you know na her situation?”
hearing it arman looked at their face but didn’t ask about it.actually he was feeling so drowsiness,not interested in anything.
ananya nodded and uttered : “thik hai beta,par iska khyal rakhna.iske siva mera aur koi nahi hai..”saying it she again started crying.
anjali uttered pressing her hand : “do you know aunty,bachpan se lekar aaj tak aap meri inspiration rahi.uncle ke death ke baad jis tarah aapne sab sambhala,aryan ke galat kadam uthane par jis tarah aapne sach ka sath diya..mai sochti hun to lagta hai kash!itni himmat mujhme hoti..aur aap aaj is choti si problem se ghabra gaye?”
ananya uttered in her cry : “nahi beta,mai thik hun.tu rahna arman ke sath.”
anjali nodded and came in riddhim’s room and got that she was standing near the window and trying to understand why ambulance came their house.anjali cleared her voice and addressed her : “riddhima,idhar aa.”
riddhima gave her a question look and came to her.
anjali : “tujhse kuch puchna tha,means soch ki aaj tera Viba hai.”
riddhima got surprised hearing it but nodded in yes.
anjali : “achcha bata ek typhoid suspected patient ko immediately kya karna chahiye?”
riddhima thought a while then replied : “at first blood test and to admit in hospital,jitni jaldi ho sake....agar jarurat ho to turant iv bottle lagana chahiye.”
but suddenly she remembered the ambulance and uttered in her trembling voice : “Arman!!kahan hai arman?”
anjali looked at her face sometime then uttered slowly : “arman ka fever thoda badh gaya hai,atul suspected its typhoid.”
hearing it riddhima gave her a numb look like she was not understanding anything.
anjali uttered holding her hands : “tu khud doctor hai na,janti hai aise me patient ke liye sabse achcha hai wo admit ho jaye.”
riddhima nodded like she was a student and anjali was her teacher.
anjali uttered pressing her hand : “mai,atul,rahul,muskan,nikki,abhi...saaaab arman ke paas rahenge..thik hai na?
riddhima nodded then suddenly she started trembling...tears floweing down her cheeks.anjali made her sit on the couch and uttered : “listen riddzi,tu ek doctor hokar agar is tarah daregi toh soch aunty ka kya hoga jo khud heart patient ban chuki hai. arman kuch din me wapas aa jayega thik hokar par agar aunty ko kuch hua toh wo tujhe kabhi maaf nahi karega.”
riddhima uttered wiping her tears : “mai mumma ka khyal rakhungi anjali.”
anjali smacked on her cheeks lovingly while uttered : “that’s like a good girl.chal ab arman ke kapde nikal de ,mai lekar jati hun uske sath.der karna thik nahi.”
riddhima’s mind stopped to work.she stood like a puppet,came to wardrobe,took out arman’s dresses and kept them in a bag and uttered in a low voice : “mai bhi jaungi.”
anjali uttered with a smile : “sach me tu pagal hai,abhi kaha na aunty ka khyal rakhegi? tu jayegi to yahan koun rahega?”
riddhima looked at her and uttered in a wet voice : ‘arman se maafi mangni hai mujhe.”
anjali’s eyes became wet seeing iddhima’s condition.she uttered :” wo tujhse naraj nahi hai riddhzi,actually tumhe bulana chahta tha,tumhare bina hospital jana hi nahi chahta tha , par atul ne mana kar diya.its infectious you know na aur tumhare upar is family ke alava aur ek nanhe jaan ki bhi responsiblity hai.”
riddhima understood anjali told her lie that arman was remembering her but anjali was right .she had to take care of arman’s symbol of love .she nodded bending head and uttered slowly: “arman ke paas rahna anjali,usey akela mat chodna.”
anjali uttered smilingly : “tu soch bhi kaise sakti hai ki usey akela chod dungi?’
riddhima nodded and uttered in a wet voice: “haan,tum toh uski best friend ho,bachpan se uske sath ho,mai toh yon hi achanak aa gayi uske life me.”
anjali uttered rounding eyes : “ab yeh kya bakwas hai? tu uski life partner hai,the better half,samjhi kya?”
sahil came and addressed to anjali : “anjali di jaldi chalo,late ho raha hai.”
anjali nodded and said to riddhima: “wahan khidki se arman dikhega tujhe,yahin khadi reh.’
riddhima nodded and uttered in a pleading voice : “jo report ho mujhe batana please anjali.”
anjali uttered : “haan baba,mai tumhe phone karti rahungi but no sad face okay? aur apna khyal rakhna.”
riddhima nodded and came to the window to see arman once.
after sometime arman came out of the house.atul and anjali were with him to give support. riddhima saw ananya hugged arman and started crying.arman caressed her cheek,wiped tears and said something to sahil.sahil nodded and held annaya’s hand.arman parted her from him and bid bye. suddenly dadi came running there.she had something in her hand. riddhima saw it was “bleesed flower” of god. she touched it arman’s head once then kept it in his pocket.arman smiled weakly and touched her feet .dadi blessed him with teary eyes. just then,before getting on the ambulance ,arman glanced at the window once and getting riddhima was there,he quickly started looking other side and moved on the ambulance. riddhima mumbled in her tears : “jaldi wapas aana arman,mai aur tumhara baby tumhara intzaar karenge.”
.........................
next day when annaya came in riddhima’s room got surprised that she was ready to go somewhere.she asked : “kahan ja rahi ho riddhima?”
riddhima uttered : “wo..mumma,mai soch rahi thi ghar me bore ho rahi hun to kyon na hospital chali jaun.”
annaya understood why riddhima wanted to go hospital but she uttered : “beta,teri tabiyat thik nahi tha na kal aur aaj hi tu hospital jana chahti hai,1-2 din ruk ja na.”
dadi came and uttered : “aur jayegi kaise? arman to ghar me nahi hai tujhe le jane ke liye.(actually dadi was angry on riddhima so she intensionally used arman’s name).
riddhima’s eyes wet hearing arman’s name. she thought ...”isiliye to ja rahi hun dadi.meri jaan to hospital me hai,mai ghar me rahkar kya karungi.”
ananya uttered : “aap bhi na aunty,dekhiye aapne rulaya na isey?”
dadi uttered : ‘aur tu jo raatbhar ro rahi hai uska kya?”
annaya replied immediately : “kahan? mai kyon roun? arman kuch dino me thik ho jayega,ghar aa jayega,mere paas,humare paas. aur beemar to sabhi hote hain,hai na riddhima?”
riddhima nodded while trying to hide her tears. annaya came to her and uttered lovingly : “maine anjali ko phone kiya tha,usne bataya arman abhi so raha hai,jab jagega toh wo mujhe le jayegi.par thik hai chal,mai tere sath chali jati hun aur hum dono sath hi wapas aa jayenge,thik hai na?”
riddhima nodded and wiped her tears.annaya looked at dadi and teased her : “ab aapne meri bachchi ko rulaya hai to aap ghar par rahogi,aapko nahi le jaungi mai.”
dadi uttered waving hands : ‘haan haan thik hai,mera arman aayega na to mai tumdono ke naam dher sara shikayat karungi.ek kaam karti hun,tu jabtak aayegi tabtak shikayat ka list banana shuru karti hun,,vurna bhul jaungi.”
ananya again teased her : “kaise likhengi aap?”aapka spectacles to kal raat tut gaya hai,jabtak mai nayi la na dun kaise likhengi aap?”
riddhima smiled seeing their fight.annaya caressed her hairs and said : “chal tu pahle breafast kar le riddhima,aise me empty stomach rahna thik nahi.”
riddhima nodded and came to dining room.
......................
when annaya and riddhima came to hospital,riddhima stopped in the nurse station and addressed to ananya : “mumma,aap jakar arman ko dekh aao.,mai yahan rukti hun.”
annaya uttered surprisingly : “tu arman ko dekhne aayi thi na? to yahan kyon rukegi? teri tabiyat thik nahi kya? phir se chakkar aa rahe hain kya?”
riddhima noddded in na and replied in a low voice : ‘wo..arman phir se gussa ho jayega.”
annaya uttered holding her hand: “nahi hoga gussa.par tu nahi jayegi to jarur gussa hoga.aur usey tu kya aur ek mouka dena chahti hai ki wo kahe tujhe uski parvah nahi?”
riddhima uttered in a wet voice : ‘aap janti hai mumma aisa nahi hai,mujhe uski parvah hai..meri zindagi me aur koun hai mumma jo arman ki jagah lega? maine jo bhi kiya tha arman ke liye kiya tha,mai batana bhi chahti thi usey par...”she left incomplete her words and wiped her tears.
annaya uttered in a scolding voice : “pagal ladki,tujhe kitni baar samjhaya ab rona band.tu is tarah roti rahegi to arman ka beta roni surat lekar paida hoga.”
riddhima uttered slowly :” par agar beti hui toh mumma,aapko pasand nahi kya?”
annaya uttered smilingly : “mujhe to poti (grand daughter) chahiye hai par maine dar se beta kaha,kahin tu bura na maan jaye.”
hearing it riddhima smiled.
ananya uttered smilingly : “yeh hui na baat,chal ab aur haan arman kuch bhi kahe,na room se bahar aana aur na rona okay? aur hum jyada der nahi rukenge,tera jyada der wahan rahna thik nahi na.”
riddhima nodded in her every words.she had a hope if arman forgave her.
suddenly they heard lovely’s voice from back : “arey dr.riddhima ji,aap yahan?”
ananya : “haan lovely,arman ka cabin koun sa hai ?”
lovely uttered touching ananya’s feet : ‘par dr. arman apne cabin me nahi hain ji.”
ananya asked surprisingly: “phir kahan hai?”
lovely hesitate a bit then uttered : “actually aaj early morning hi unki tabiyat jyada kharab ho gayi,vomiting ,high fever and abdominal pain ..bahut takleef ho rahi thi unhe.unhen ICU me shift kar diya hai dr.shubhankar ne.”
riddhima felt that everything moving around her.annaya too hell scared hearing it but seeing riddhima’s condition she caught her hand tightly and asked lovely : “uske dost kahna hai?”
lovely : “wahin hain ji,sab whole night hi yahi they,chaliye aapko le jati hun.
they followed lovely and saw that arman’s friends were sitting outside of the ICU with a worrried face. seeing annaya and riddhima, muski uttered : ‘hey bababji,yeh dono yahan kaise aa gaye?ab kya hoga?”
hearing it all looked at them,anjali came hurriedly to annaya and uttered slowly : “sorry aunty.”
annaya: “beta,mai nahi aaun isliye tune jhuth kaha na?”
anjali uttered with a sorry face : “aunty,mujhe laga aaplog aur ghabra jaoge,so..”saying she bent head.
ananya uttered touching her hand: “koi baat nahi anjali.bas mera bete se ekbaar mila de.”
anjali looked at rahul helplessly.rahul nodded and came to annaya and said: “sorry aunty,par abhi aap usse nahi mil sakti.”
annaya nodded in teary eyes and uttered in a choked voice : “kaisa hai wo?”
rahul : “unconcious hai,bahut weak hai and fever is very high..usually temparature 104 tak jata hai par arman ka 105 se upar chala gaya tha.doctors hain wahan,atul bhi hai,bas humey aaj whole day wait karna hoga..”
annaya heaved a long breathe and uttered : “bas ekbaar usey dekh leti toh..
muskan uttered holding her hand : “aunty,aap sham ko arman se mil lena,abhi aap yahan se usey dekh sakti hain.aaiye.”
muskan took them to the window glass and whispered : ‘see aunty,dr. shubhankar,dr. atul toh hain ,sath me dr. kapoor ,dr. shukla bhi hain,hum aise hi arman ko kuch hone denge? humara hero hai wo.”
annaya nodded and looked at her son who was lied on the bed unconcious.riddhima’s eyes started raining seeing her arman was lied unconciously on bed surrounded by machines where IV catheter is inserted in his both hands through which fluids and saline was going in his body.his eyes were closed and face became pale.she felt she would fell surely but in a minute muskan held her and uttered : “riddhima,i think tujhe yahan nahi aana chahiye tha,chal ghar chal.”
riddhima uttered in a choked voice : “muski,ab mai kya karugi? agar arman ko kuch..
but muski cut her words immediately and uttered in a scolding voice : “tu ek doctor hai na? phir aisi baatein kyon karti hai? waise tu itna royegi toh tujhe bhi admit karna padega aur phir tujhe aur mere hero ko same room me band kar denge,phir jhagadte rahna dono.”
riddhima didn’t reply only wiped her tears and looked at arman.muski uttered slowly : ‘chal ghar chal,aunty ko rahne de yahan,chal mai sath jati hun tere,thik hai na?”
riddhima nodded like a puppet and followed muskan like a weak ,defeated person.
