Epilogue B: “Dard Ka Rishta”



Arman peeped khushi’s room and saw she was busy to draw something. Hearing footsteps she looked at arman and asked : “hi naan..kab aaye aap?”

Arman came to her and replied smilingly : “bas kuch time hue.how are you? Kya chal raha hai?”

Khushi uttered nodding : “I am fine naan.kal drawing competition hai so I am busy with practicing.”

Arman’s eyes went on the paper and he saw khushi made a family picture. Khushi picked the paper and asked showing it to arman..my theme is ‘my family’ ,maine apni family ko draw kiya hai,yeh meri mumma-aap,meri dadi,meri badi dadi,mera sahil mamu,yeh mera golu,meri princess..sab hain yahan aur mai bhi,kitni pyari family hai na meri?”


Arman replied brushing her silky hairs : “haan wo toh hai hi,but you know ,sabse pyari humari khushi hai.”

Khushi smiled and asked : “naan,mujhe guiter bajana sikhaoge?”

arman got surprised hearing it.he asked : “kisne bataya aapko mai guiter bajata tha?”

khushi uttered smilingly : “aur koun,aapki jaan riddhima ne.so sad maine kabhi nahi suna.aapne kyon chod diya?”

arman uttered : “no khushi,maine choda nahi hai,itna busy ho gaya life me ki uske baarey me bhul gaya tha.”

khushi uttered : “par mumma nahi bhuli,wo dekho aapka new guiter,mumma le aayi hai.”

arman was surprised as well as happy seeing the guiter.he picked the guitar and touched the strings and mumbled : “wow! my favourite!

khushi smiled.

arman forgot to ask about aryan getting guiter and about to go but as he reached to door,stopped hearing khush’s voice : “mai aryan malik,yani aapke bade bhai se mili.”

arman gulped hard hearing it and looked at khushi. he back to her and asked worriedly : “kya kaha unhone?”

khushi replied calmly : “kuch nahi,bas kuch batein ki..mere school ke bare me aur mujhe kya pasand hai..yahi sab.”

arman nodded and thought not to drag this topic more so uttered : “anyways leave it khushi.mujhe thoda kaam hai.”

but khushi uttered suddenly : “i know naan,aap unke barey me hi puchne aaye the,hai na?”

arman stammered : “no,i mean..ok,i am going.”

but khushi uttered : “no naan,wait.mai janti hun mai unki beti thi.”

arman was dumbfounded! but he controlled and uttered in a shaking voice : “nahi,tum humari beti ho khushi.unse tumhara koi rishta nahi.aur ab kabhi wo aayein toh baat mat karna,i don’t like it.”

khushi uttered calmly : “aapne suna nahi naan,maine kaha,mai unki beti thi...par mai aapki beti hun.mai unse koi rishta nahi jodna chahti aur na unke sath jaungi kyonki i love my family.I am thankful to god he gave me this beautiful,lovely family.aur unhone kuch nahi bataya,i knew it from last year,mumma ne bataya tha mujhe.”

arman asked surprisingly : “riddhima ne!why?”

khushi replied : “kyonki mumma nahi chahti ki jaise unhe achanak pata chala tha ki unki shadi aryan malik se hone wali thi ,par aapse ho gayi,usi tarah mujhe achanak pata chale aur mai unki tarah tut jaun.so she had told me everything,about her and my life...and i got scared first but then accepted everything.mere liye aap aur mumma aur mere siblings mere sab kuch hain naan.”

arman smiled lightly,caressed her hairs and turned to go but khushi uttered : “naan,aur ek baat.”

arman looked at her.

khushi uttered in a requesting tone : “kya mai aapko papa kah sakti hun?”

arman had tears in his eyes,he uttered in a joyful voice : “kyon nahi khushi,mai aapka papa hi toh hun.par achanak yeh baat kyon?”

khushi replied with a smile : “aap toh mere papa ho na,isliye.”

arman nodded and uttered : “thank you khushi,par aap kabhi bhi mujhse dur toh nahi chali jaogi na? mai aapko khone se darta hun.”

khushi nodded in na and uttered in a wet voice : “aur mai aap sabko khone se darti hun papa.i love all of you,mai aaplogon ke bina ji nahi paungi.”

arman caressed her cheeks and uttered : “aur aryan ko aap bade papa kah sakti ho,unhe achcha lgega.”

khushi nodded and uttered smilingly:” you are the best person papa.aap bahut achche ho.”

arman smiled on her words and chuckled : “yeh buttering karna jarur aapki mumma ne sikhaya hai aapko?but i am not the best person khushi,mai bhi ek insaan ki tarah gussa hota hun,jealous hota hun aur apni cheezen kisi aur se share nahi kar sakta.”

khushi uttered : “par aap kisiko dard me nahi dekh sakte papa,aur yahi aapko sabse alag banati hai.”

arman uttered smilingly : “yeh aapse mumma ne kaha?”

khushi nodded and uttered : “aapne mumma ko dard me dekha toh unka sath diya and i know aap starting me muhse utna pyar nahi karte the par jab golu hone wala tha,mumma hospital me thi toh aapne mujhe kabhi khud se alag nahi kiya aur mujhe sabse jyada pyar karne lage.”

arman laughed and uttered : “riddhima ne aapko kuch jyada hi mature bana diya hai,yeh sab batein batakar. par aap ye sab jyada sochiye mat aur apni study par dhyan dijiye aur apni mumma jaisi doctor banna.”

khushi smiled and uttered : “sorry papa,but mai toh writer banna chahti hun aur meri first book aap aur mumma par likhungi and you know maine uska name bhi choose kar liya hai.”

arman asked surprisingly : “kya?”

khushi replied smilingly : “dard ka rishta”

arman had no words to say!he kissed lightly on her temple,caressed her hairs lovingly and went from there wiping his tears but it was his tears of joy not of sorrow.

Arman -Riddhima

arman came in his room and saw riddhima was standing in front of the mirror,wearing the new salwar suit which arman took for her from mumbai.arman kept the guiter and came silently to her and whispered hugging her from back : “bahut khubsurat lag rahi ho jaan..mind blowing! lagta hai aur ekbaar honeymoon par chalun tumhe lekar.”

riddhima uttered giving a fake scared expression : “na baba..phir se tumne gift manga toh?”

arman laughed and uttered rubbing his cheeks with her : “ab aur kuch nahi chahiye riddhima,tumne sabkuch toh de diya hai.i love you so so much....you are the best gift for me from the god.”

riddhima chuckled : “kya baat hai? bada pyar aa raha hai?”

arman uttered kissing her cheek : “abhi abhi khushi ke kamre se aa raha hun..”
riddhima uttered with a smile : “toh usne tumhe sabkuch bata diya?
arman nodded and uttered taking riddhima’s dupatta in hand : “and you know,aaj usne mujhe ‘papa’ bulaya hai...sab tumhari wajah se hua hai...tumne kis tarah uske liye sabkuch normal kar diya.”

riddhima smiled only.

arman asked looking at her : “but riddhima,tum kuch din baad bhi bata sakti thi,she is very young,agar dar jati toh?”

riddhima uttered softly : “par mujhe dar tha usey achanak pata chale toh...wah bhi shayad meri tarah bikhar jati arman,mujhe toh tumne sambhal liya tha par usey agar sambhal na paate toh?’

arman uttered hurriedly : “hum sab the na usey sambhalne ke liye. but you are right ,usne sabkuch easily liya and she loves us..loves her family most.aur haan,thank you for this beautiful gift.”

riddhima looked at guiter and uttered : “agar pasand aaya hai toh abhi ek song gao na arman,its a long time ,you didn’t play guitar.”

arman uttered smilingly : “bhul gaya hun riddhima.aisa karo,aaj tum kuch gao.tumhari awaz ke jadu se shayad mai phir se guitar play kar lun.”

riddhima thought a while and then wrapped her arms around arman’s neck and hummed......

Ho Chaandni Jab Tak
Raat Deta Hai Har Koi Saath
Tum Magar Andheron Mein
Na Chhodna Mera Haath

Jab Koi Baat Bigad Jaaye
Jab Koi Mushkil Pad Jaaye
Tum Dena Saath Mera
O Humnawaaz.........

Na Koi Hai Na Koi Tha
Zindage Mein Tumhaare Siva
Tum Dena Saath Mera
O Humnawaaz.............

arman dragged her more close and sang....

Wafadaari Ki Vo Rasmein
Nibhayenge Hum Tum Kasmein
Ek Bhi Saans Zindagi Ki
Jab Tak Ho Apne Bas Mein

Jab Koi Baat Bigad Jaaye
Jab Koi Mushkil Pad Jaaye
Tum Dena Saath Mera
O Humnawaaz...

Na Koi Hai Na Koi Tha
Zindage Mein Tumhaare Siva
Tum Dena Saath Mera
O Humnawaaz....

both sang peeping in each others eyes....

Dil Ko Mere Hua Yakeen
Hum Pehle Bhi Mile Kahin
Silsila Ye Sadiyon Ka
Koi Aaj Ki Baat Nahin

Jab Koi Baat Bigad Jaaye
Jab Koi Mushkil Pad Jaaye
Tum Dena Saath Mera
O Humnawaaz...

Jab Koi Baat Bigad Jaaye
Jab Koi Mushkil Pad Jaaye
Tum Dena Saath Mera
O Humnawaaz....

they lost in each other forgetting about the world.....arman whispered : “you have made my life complete jaan...”

riddhima whispered like a breathe.....”I love you arman...till the eternity....

arman whispered.....”Me too jaan...love you More....

“"When I say I love you More,I don’t mean I love you More than you love me.I mean I love you more than the bad days ahead of us. I love you more than any fight ever we will have.I love you more than the distance between us ,I love you more than any obstacles that could try and come between us.I love you the Most.”
