part 68 : dard ka rishta

                         
when muskan came with riddhima in their house dadi asked surprisingly : “beta,ananya kahan reh gayi?”
muskan replied instead riddhima : “apne bete ke paas dadiji,kal se nahin dekha na.”
dadi uttered looking at riddhima : “to tu bhi thodi der aur reh jati na beta.”
muski : “aap bhi kya baat karte ho dadiji,aapko riddhima ki haalat pata hai ki nahi?typhoid ek se dusre ko ho jata hai aur riddhima ko to bahut jaldi ho sakta hai.”

dadi uttered : “haan beta,ye to hai.waise arman thik hai na?”
muskan : “bilkul dadiji.kuch dino me ghar wapas aa jayega wo,don’t worry.”
dadi addressed riddhima : “tu chup hokar wahan khdi thi ya arman se baat ki? dekh beta, pati patni me jhagda to hota rahta hai par har insaan apne karib ke logon ko hi beemar hone par apne paas chahta hai aur ananya ke baad tu uske sabse karib hai,aise me tujhe aage badhna hoga aur wo jitna bhi gussa kare,tujhe chup rahna hoga.”
riddhima didn’t reply but gave a blank look to dadi.
dadi : “ab aise tukur tukur kyon dekh rahi hai? arman se baat ki ya nahin?”
riddhima didn’t understand what to say but muski saved her addressing to dadi : “aap na dadiji,buddhi hokar sathiya gayi ho. aapne mujhse pucha bhi nahi ki maine breakfast liya ki nahi.”
dadi : “sorry beta,tujhe bhukh lagi hai kya? par tune nashta kyon nahi kiya?”
muski: “night duty thi dadi aur phir dr. hitlar yani humari dr.kirti ne kaha der tak rukne ko. aur phir annaya aunty gayi to main riddhima ko ghar drop karne ke bahane aa gayi.mumma nahi hai ghar me,shadi me gayi hai toh socha yahin ruk jaun.aapko koi problem to nahin hoga na dadiji?”
dadi uttered : “arey nahin beta,tu bhi na.”
muski : “to dadi jaldi se mujhe heavy nashta de do.mai khakar sona chahti hun bahut neend aa rahi hai.”
dadi uttered hurridly : “thik hai beta,aur tu jab baad me hospital jayegi,mujhe lekar jana,arman bete ko dekh aaun ekbaar,pata nahi kaise bure bure khayalat aa rahe hain.”
saying she wiped her tears.
muskan looked at once riddhima then uttered : “arey dadiji,wo bilkul thik hai.mai sham ko aapko le jaungi,khush na?”
dadi uttered caressing muski’s cheek : “haan beta,achcha bol tere liye kya banva dun?”
muski : “aap cheeze omelet aur chapati banva dijiye.”
dadi went to kitchen to order to maid for cooking these things.muskan looked at riddhima and uttered in a low voice : “don’t worry,he will be fine soon.tera pyar usey kahin nahi jane dega.aur apna khyal rakh,agar arman ke bachche ko kuch hua to wo tujhe surely maaf nahin karega.”
riddhima nodded and said in a low voice : “usey to pata hi nahi muski.”
muski uttered smilingly : “toh uske thik hone ke baad tu usey ysh khushkhabri dena aur dekhna kaise wo tujhe gale laga leta hai.”
riddhima nodded and came in her room as she wanted to hide her tears from muskan. she threw herself on the bed and closed eyes but arman’s pale face came in front of her. she tried to sleep as last night she couldn’t sleep,but sleep was far away from her eyes.riddhima moved down and came to the wardrobe where arman’s dresses were kept.she started arranging them.sometimes she inhaled his shirt sticking it with her with the feeling that arman was with her. then she arranged his books and took out albums and started seeing the photos. she wanted to call ananya or someone to ask how arman was but she had no courage to ask it. after sometime she felt tired and lied on the bed while hugging arman’s photo and sank in a deep sleep. dadi came in her room to ask for about lunch but seeing she was in a deep sleep she went .muskan was already sleeping in the drawingroom on the couch . dadi came to sahil and said him to take lunch but he refused with a sad face. dadi uttered assuring him : “tu arman bhaiya ke liye dukhi hai na sahil par muskan ne bataya wo bilkul thik hai.”
sahil nodded and uttered : “haan dadi,arman bhaiya itne achche hain,unhe kya hoga?”
dadi uttered rolling eyes : “to itna sad face kyon bana rakha hai tu?”
sahil : “asal me dadi mujhe arman bhaiya ko dekhna tha par bhaiya ne kal mujhe kaha tha ki dekh sahil,ghar me tu akela mard hai,baki teeno aurat..jisme se dadi ki umr ho gayi hai,mumma heart patient hai aur teri didi toh koi kaam ki nahi hai,uska dimag hi ulta hai.to yeh ghar teri reponsiblity me chodkar ja raha hun,khyal rakhna.”
dadi uttered : “haan,toh achchi baat hai na beta,jab tak arman hospital me hai tu humara dekhbhal karega,ab tu bada ho gaya hai na. achcha chal kha le thoda,warna mai akele kaise khaungi.”
sahil nodded and came but after eating 2-3 spoons ,he uttered : “dadi,mai juice le leta hun,bhukh nahi hai.aur main apne room me jata hun,aap bhi rest karo.”
dadi nodded.
................
riddhima didn’t know how long she was slept ,suddenly she got up with a jerk! she had a horrible dream and it was about arman. she saw arman was saying her : “good bye riddhima..ja raha hun.mumma ko tumhare bharose chodkar ja raha hun,unka khyal rakhna,unhen kabhi akela mat chodna.”
she looked around and understood it was a dream but tears rolling down her eyes. she mumbled : “arman jahan bhi jao,jis duniya me jao,please mujhe apne sath lekar jana,mai tumhare bina jeena nahi chahti kyonki mai to bahut pahle hi mar chuki thi,tumne mujhe nayi zindagi di hai aur yah ab tumhari amanat hai...”
she wiped her tears and looked at the whole room which was full of her photos. she uttered in her cry : “kyon arman? agar humara sath itna hi tha to itna pyar kyon diya mujhe? aur agar maine koi galti ki bhi hai to kya uski itni badi saza? kya itna naraj hona thik hai ki tum mujhe chodkar jaane ki taiyari karo.”
she came down and saw muskan was sleeping in the couch and no one is there. she silently went to the terrace and stood looking at the lonely road. she remembered arman’s each and every words..his antics,his smiling face,his pouting and his anger also .till now riddhima always got angry on arman and arman tried to manofy but now arman was angry on her and riddhima didn’t know how she would manofy him. suddenly drizling started and soon its changed into heavy rain like riddhima’s eyes. her tears,which was rolling down constantly from her eyes, mixed with the rain .she remembered how arman was liked to drench in rain.whenever rain started,arman used to come in terrace hiding from annaya’s eyes and drenched fully. sometimes riddhima use to blackmailing him...”mai mumma ko bata dungi kal raat tum barish me bheege ho agar mujhe wo nayi dress nahi dilvaye toh..or...agar maine tumhe phir se dr.mallika ke sath dekha to mumma ko bata dungi tumne kal raat kya kiya tha.”
arman use to reply making an innocent face : ‘kal raat maine to tumhe kiss kiya tha aur kuch nahi kyonki mai tired tha.”
riddhima use to reply him while rolling eyes : “besharam! tum barish me bheege the bata dungi mumma ko.”
...one night riddhima had slept as she was very tired but she didn’t know when arman picked her in his arm silently and came to terrace and made her sit in the swing in heavy rain.riddhima got angry and started beating him and arman ran to save himself from her .riddhima chased him while yelling angrily : “i will kill you arman.”
but after sometime their tom and jerry game over and they started dancing in rain and soon their dance was over and they started kissing each other and soon it was changed into passionate love. they forgot that they were drenching fully. next day riddhima had fever and arman sat beside her making a sorry face.when annaya asked the reason of riddhima’s fever,arman uttered slowly : “wo mumma..actually mai kal isey barish me...”he kept quiet while bent his head but sahil,dadi and riddhima also burst into laughter when ananya made arman “murga” as punishment and announced : “jab tak riddhima thik na ho,tu uski seva karega..aur tujhe bhi wahi khane ko milega jo riddhima ko dungi.”
ananya knew arman didn’t like ‘daliya’,kaadha and khichdi which she used to give riddhima when she was sick so she announced it.arman pleaded : “mumma,pahli saza manjur hai par dusri wali...yackkk!mujhe wo sab nahin khana.”
ananya replied frowning : “mujhe pata hai tujhe pahla wala manjur hoga,wo to tera saza nahi reward hai kyonki tujhe dusri saza puri karni hai.”
riddhima smiled hearing it and arman sat there making face. after ananya and dadi going from there,riddhima called sahil and uttered : “sahil,raat ko chupke se domino’s pizza lakar arman ko dena,dekhna mumma ya dadi ko pata na chale.”
arman jumped hearing it and uttered hugging riddhima : “i love you jaan,promise ab se neend me uthakar barish me nahin le jaunga,haan jagi ho to le ja sakta hun but first i will ask you,okay?”
......................................
riddhima burst into cry remembering those beautiful moments of her life. suddenly rain stopped as it got scared seeing riddhima’s condition. riddhima started sobbing while taking arman’s name,just then she heard sahil’s choked voice from back.she wiped her tears and turned.sahil ran to her and hugged her and uttered : “didi,arman bhaiya thik nahi hain,mujhe pata hai.”
riddhima got surprised hearing it,she asked : “tujhe kisne bataya?”
sahil uttered in a wet voice : “raat ko bilkul bhi thik nahi lag raha tha mujhe to mai aaplogon ke uthne se pahle hi hospital gaya tha,par tab bhaiya ki haalat bahut khrab thi,wo vomit kar rahe the aur unhen bahut pain ho raha tha. mujhe dekhte hi unhone bulaya aur kaha : “sahil,agar mujhe kuch ho jaye to mumma ka khyal rakhna.”
riddhima uttered : “nahin sahil,arman ko kuch nahi hoga.”
they heard muskan’s cheerful voice from the door : ‘thik kaha tune riddhzi,arman ko kuch nahi hoga.abhi abhi anjali ne call kiya tham,he is fine.”
riddhima ran to muski and uttered holding her hands : “tu sach kah rahi na muski?”
muskan uttered smilingly : “haan re,tujhe pahle call kiya tha anjali ne par tu to yahan thi,to phir usne mujhe kiya.”
suddenly she uttered : “haila!tu itna roi ki tere kapde bhi bheeg gaye!!
sahil smiled but riddhima rolled eyes to muskan.muskan uttered smacking on her cheeks : “pagal,barsat me bheeg rahi thi? wo bhi arman ke bina..ab beemar padegi toh ananya aunty kise punish karegi aur koun tere paas raat-din baitha rahega,ja change kar le aur chal hospital mere sath.”
sahil uttered : “main bhi jaunga arman bhaiya ko dekhne.”
muskan uttered smilingly : “haan sahil,dadi,riddhima,tu aur mai,sab jayenge,humare hero ko dekhne.”
............................................................
when they reached in hospital, saw arman was lying on his bed and ananya was sitting beside him while caressing his hairs. his friends are also there with a happy face. anjali uttered happily : “dekho to arman koun aaya hai.”
arman looked at them but he asked sahil ignoring riddhima : “kaisa hai sahil?”
sahil uttered : “bhaiya,aap kaise ho batao,humari to jaan hinikal gayi thi aapki haalat dekhkar...didi to sirf ro...
but riddhima pressed his hand to keep quiet. sahil stopped and looked at riddhima.but ananya uttered : “haan beechari subah hi yahan aayi thi tujhe dekhne.”
arman uttered slowly : “mumma,koi aur baat karein?”
riddhima got hurt hearing it.this means arman didn’t forgive her,he was still angry on her. dr. subhankar uttered : “i think ab arman ko rest karna chahiye.”
anjali : “haan,hum sab abhi chalte hain arman,tune to dara hi diya tha.”
ananya uttered : ‘tere dost kitne tujhse pyar karte hain,beechare subah se na kuch khaya na rest kiya.”
arman uttered slowly in a mocked voice : ‘aur jise ye karna tha wo apni duniya me hi rahti hai.”
atul uttered : ‘i think hum sabko chalna chahiye. haan,riddhima kuch der ruk sakti hai.”
but arman uttered immediately : “mujhe need aa rahi hai,i want to sleep.”
riddhima understood he didn’t want her so went from the room quietly.
.................
arman was now fine but he had to stayed in the hospital for some days more. riddhima started to come hospital but dr. kirti didn’t allow her to meet with arman or to go in his room as his typhoid was infectious. so riddhima saw him from the glass window but arman didn’t know about it. one day when anjali was talking with arman,she told to him : “arman,i am surprised tum ekbaar bhi riddhima ki baat nahi karte ho.kya ho gaya hai tumhe haan?”
arman uttered in a mocking voice : “kyon karun? jise meri parvah nahi mai bhi usey bhulna hi chahta hun anjali.”
anjali : “tumhe kaise pata ki usey tumhari parvah nahi?”
arman uttered in a sigh voice : “mai uspar naraj tha..wo usdin aayi to maine usse baat nahi ki par kya usey itna bura laga ki wo mujhe kabhi dekhne aa nahi sakti? yeh kaisa rishta hai humara anajli?”
anjali uttered with a smile : “tumhe kaise pata wo nahi aati hai? har roj ghanton wahan bahar se tumhe dekhti rahti hai ,tumhe to pata bhi nahi hai.”
arman : “to andar aane ko kun roka hai usey? “
anjali kept quiet sometime then replied : “dr. kirti ne mana kiya hai arman.mai batana nahi chahti thi par tumhari misunderstanding dur karne ke liye ,i have to say..she is pregnant and dr. kirti not allowed her to come here.”
arman got shocked hearing it! riddhima is pregnant and she didn’t tell him about it! he uttered in an angry voice : “achcha! to yeh baat bhi usne batana jaruri nahi samjha ya wah mere sath share hi nahi karna chahti hai?”
anjali uttered angrily : “uff! you became mad arman. kuch bhi kaho ulta hi samajhne lage ho.mai toh bas batana chahti thi wo kyon ander nahi aati.jo marji karo tum,tumdono ki life hai,i don’t want to interfere.”
arman uttered : “sorry anjali par mai bhi nahi chahta kisi aur ke liye hum dono ka rishta kharab ho.aur isliye mai nahi chahta ki tum uski wakalat karo.”
anjali nodded and came out of the room and saw riddhima went from there hurriedly while wiping her tears. anjali uttered : “shit!isne shayad sari baaten sun li,pata nahi kab dono samjhenge ki unka rishta aise nahi tut sakta.shyad ab aanewala hi inki duri ko mita sake.
