Part 26 : All for your love



Shshank and dadi went home without meeting sumit as riddhima was there with him.they saw riddhima was talking with sumit in a low voice. She was looking devastated but a sad smile was playing on her lips. When arman came out with shshank and dadi,shshank uttered in a sigh voice : “thank you arman,aapne jis tarah riddhima ko tutne nahi diya,usey galat nahi samjha..i am grateful to you. Shayad mujhe yahi karna tha but i was scared in heart,agar meri beti is dukh ko sah nahi payi to? Kuch kar baithe to? Mai uski maa ko khokar aaj bhi khud ko sambhal nahi paya hun,jab bhi riddhima ko dekhta hun,padma yaad aati hai.bilkul apne mumma par gayi hai wo,wahi aankhen,wahi masumiyat..wahi gussa. Padma ne mere jeene ke liye kuch to choda tha par sumit ki yadon ke alava meri beti ke paas kuch nahi rehta..mai dar gaya tha arman beta,isliye sumit ki baat maan li aur aapke bare me nahi socha ki aapko jab pata chalega to aap par kya bitegi...i am really sorry.”

Arman uttered hurriedly: “yeh aap kya kah rahe hain sir? Aapne jo kiya thik kiya.sir,mai chahta hun sumit ko agar hum aur bhi better treatment de sake,kahin abroad ..india se baahar,aur wo thik ho jaye toh riddhima kitna khush hogi..mai riddhima ko khush dekhna chahta hun sir..bahut khush aur wo sirf sumit ke sath hi khush reh sakti hai..

Dadi uttered in a wet voice : “beta,aap sach me kitne achche ho.aapne riddhima aur humari galti maaf kar di ,usey sumit se milvaya aur ab aap sumit ke liye itna soch rahe ho,humne aapko samjha hi nahi,warna hum pahle hi aapko sumit-riddhima ke bare me bata dete aur faisla aap par chodte.”

Arman uttered with a sigh smile : “dadiji,shayad tab main shadi karne ko mana kar deta aur aaplogon ka pyar mujhe nahin milta.mera rishta riddhima se kitna juda yeh alag baat hai ,but I am happy ki aaplogon se jud gaya....aur ab sumit se milkar usse aur uski mumma se bhi jud gaya..she is a nice lady.”

Dadi nodded and uttered : “pata nahi kyon achche logon ko hi life me jyada takleef milti hai.”

All kept quiet for sometime. After sometime shshank asked with a tensed face : “riddhima shayad aapke sath ghar nahi jana chahe,but she should take rest.”

Arman nodded and uttered : “i am also tensed about it,kya wo sumit ko yahan akela chodkar ghar jana chahegi?”

Shshank uttered : “maine sumit ke doctor se kaha hai wo riddhima se kahe ki sumit ko aram ki jarurat hai,hopefully kaam ban jayega.”

Arman uttered nodding : “thank you sir,uske baad mumma-papa usey sambhal lenge,aap tension mat lena.”

Shshank nodded with a tensed face and they went.arman came in the staff room and met with sumit’s doctor,discussed about sumit’s case and spent sometime there . after some time he came in sumit’s cabin and saw his doctor was explaining something to riddhima. He heard dr. Was telling : “dr. Riddhima,you know na sumit ko rest ki jarurat hai .he will sleep after taking injection and will get up late. Aap kya krogi yahan baithkar?please aap meri baat maankar ghar chale jaiye.”

But riddhima became adamant. She was nodding in na. Sumit,who was listening riddhima’s arguement silently,his eyes went on arman ,he uttered smilingly : “aao arman,mai tumhara hi wait kar raha tha.”

Then he addressed riddhima : “riddhu ,i know tum mera kahna manogi,manogi na?”

Riddhima nodded in yes but uttered : “ghar jane ko mat kehna sumit,i want to stay here only.”

Sumit uttered with a bit annoyed voice : “jisse tum beemar pado aur mujhe aur tension ho.tum yahi chahti ho na?”

Riddhima uttered with teary eyes : “maine aisa kab kaha sumit? Promise ,mai tumhe bilkul pareshan nahi karungi.”

Sumit nodded in na and uttered : “go home with arman and take rest,warna mai tumse kabhi baat nahi karunga.”

Riddhima uttered in a painful voice : “aisa mat kaho sumit.”
Sumit : “then go home,i want to take rest now.”

Riddhima looked at arman with teary eyes. Arman felt bad .he uttered hurriedly : “ tomorrow morning,jitna jaldi ho sake, i will take you here riddhima.”

Riddhima nodded and stepped forward without looking at sumit to show her anger. sumit smiled and uttered : “will take dinner and medicine. I will ask arman tomorrow.”

Riddhiam didn’t reply but arman uttered smilingly : “don’t worry sumit,she will take.”

Sumit smiled and thought in heart : “ I know arman,jab tum uske sath ho toh sabkuch possible hoga.”
.......................................
arman dropped riddhima at home and went to take her
medicines.when he returned,saw mumma was waiting for him but riddhima was not there.ananya said him riddhima didn’t had dinner.

arman : “par mumma,usey abhi high dose medicines lena hai,aisa kaise chalega?”

ananya uttered worriedly : “mai janti hun arman par mujhe bhi lagta hai aise situation mein koi bhi khana nahi kha sakta.sumit ke baare me jaankar uske dil par kya gujar rahi hogi soch.”

arman nodded and uttered : “i know mumma.achcha ek kaam karo,aap thoda kuch de do,i will try to feed her.”

ananya nodded and kept kheer in a bowl and give him.arman came in room and saw riddhima was sitting on the bed while staring at the ceiling.hearing footstep ,she wiped her tears immediately and looked at the arman.arman smiled lightly and uttered slowly : “mumma ne bataya tumne kuch nahi khaya,but you have to take medicine..so mai kheer le aaya,but i don’t know you like it or not.”

riddhima sat on the bed and uttered : “mujhe bhukh nahi hai arman.”

arman nodded and uttered : “i know par khana toh padega warna kal jab sumit puchega toh kya kahunga? mai jhuth nahi keh sakta.”

hearing sumit’s name riddhima took the bowl and started eating with spoon while bending head. arman smiled in heart.he got to know from dadi,riddhima liked kheer madly so he told mumma to make kheer. he also knew she could eat only for sumit’s name.he understood one thing that riddhima obeyed sumit’s every words.he sat there quietly but after eating a few spoons,suddenly riddhima kept the bowl and burst into cry.

arman got nervous .he asked worriedly : “kya hua riddhima? please chup ho jao.sab thik ho jayega...sumit will be fine soon..maine aaj hi shshank sir se baat ki,we will take him abroad for better treatment...”

riddhima stopped,looked at arman with red shot eyes and uttered slowly : “i have read his reports arman...i know he will not with me for long time..mai kya karun arman? i can’t live without him..please arman,kuch karo..

arman’s eyes became moist seeing her condition.he sat beside her and uttered touching her hand softly : “trust me riddhima,mujhse jo bhi possible hoga mai karunga...i know tumhari sari khushi sumit se judi hai...aur mai tumhe khush dekhna chahta hun.”

riddhima nodded and wiped her tears.arman uttered with a sigh smile : “achcha ab kheer finish karo,medicine lena hai tumhe aur mujhe bhi dinner karna hai,bahut bhukh lagi hai.”

riddhima looked at arman and uttered in a broken voice : “you know arman,sumit ko bhi kheere bahut pasand hai...jab bhi dadi kheer banati thi,mai college le jati thi aur hum share karte the.”
arman understood why she had suddenly started crying like this.he felt bad for he kept that thing in front of her which made her to remember sumit.he uttered : “sorry riddhima,mujhe pata nahi tha.achcha ab medicine le lo aur so jao,jaldi uthna hai na,hume hospital jana hai.”

riddhima nodded and took medicine and laid on the bed. after some minutes she will in a deep slumber as arman gave her a sleeping tablet also. arman ,who was sitting there,heaved a long breathe,covered her with a blanket and went for dinner.
.......................................
at morning when riddhima got up,saw arman was getting ready.she uttered in a shocked voice : “mai itna kaise so gayi! humey hospital pahunchne me late ho jayegi.”

arman uttered : “nahi riddhima,doctor se maine abhi baat ki,he said to come after 1 hour as sumit was sleeping,usey disturb na ho.achcha tum fresh hokar neeche aa jao,hum sath breakfast lenge.”

riddhima nodded and went to freshen. after some time she came downstairs and saw all were waiting for her in dining table. seeing him billy uttered : “good morning beta,chalo jaldi aa jao.”

riddhima nodded and sat on a chair.riddhima finished her breakfast very fast as she wanted to go hospital as soon as possible.arman told her that he will drop riddhima in hospital then will go sanjivani. as they were about to go,ananya came with a tiffin box and uttered giving it to riddhima : “riddhima,isme sumit ke liye kheer hai.aur aakar batana usey aur kya kya pasand hai,mai bana dungi.”

riddhima was surprised and looked at arman. arman smiled lightly.riddhima said “thank you” through her eyes and they came out.she sat on the back seat.arman was about to start the car,suddenly riddhima opened the door and uttered : “arman,please ek minute ruko.”

Then she ran inside the house and back with her diary. Arman understood she wanted to show it to sumit. He didn’t ask her anything in way as she was lost in her thought. Arman dropped her in the hospital gate saying that he will come after his duty.

Riddhima nodded and stepped inside the hospital. When she came in cabin’s gate,saw sumit was sitting on his bed and talking with a lady. She stopped on the doorstep,confused she would go or not but sumit’s eyes went on her and he uttered : ‘aao riddhima..”

Hearing it that lady turned to riddhima. Sumit uttered : “meri mumma..”

Riddhima came and touched her feet.she touched her head and blessed with a light smile : “khush raho beta..sada suhagan raho..

Riddhima jerked hearing it!she gave her a confused look. Sumit’s mumma smiled sweetly and uttered : “arman bada achcha ladka hai,bada pyara hai,tumhe bahut khush rakhega.”

Sumit asked : “arman nahi aaya?mumma uske liye kuch layi thi.”

Riddhima gave a question look.sumit’s mumma uttered : “haan,mai usse kal subah mili thi,usne bataya usey ‘sondesh’ (a bengali sweet)bahut pasand hai ,maine ghar par banaya ,isliye kal nahi aayi sham ko.”

Sumit : “ma riddhima ko bhi sondesh bahut pasand hai,aap jab bhi banati thi aur mere liye bhejti thi,actually riddhima sara ka sara khati thi kyonki mujhe utna pasand nahi na.”

Sumit’s mumma uttered touching sumit’s cheek : “saitan kahinka,isliye jab bhi gaaw(village) jata,mujhse sondesh banana ko kahta tha na?”

Sumit laughed and uttered : “sorry mumma.”

Sumit’s mumma looked at his son’s face once ,tears came in her eyes but she controlled it immediately and uttered : “arman aur riddhima ki pasand kitni milti hai na? Sumit phone laga arman ko aur puch kab aayega.”

Riddhima uttered hurriedly : “wo break me aayega,thoda busy hai.”

Sumita’s mumma nodded and uttered : “thik hai,to usey bata de wahan lunch na karey,mai banakar layi hun,hum sath karenge.”

Riddhima nodded and addressed to sumit: “sumit,yeh annaya aunty,i mean arman ki mumma ne tumhare liye kheer banayi hai.”
Sumit yelled excitedly : “wow!kheer!I love it!jaldi do na riddhima.”

Riddhima nodded and opened the box,served in a plate and gave it to sumit. Sumit kept it in mouth and uttered : “wow!its yummy!”

Sumit’s mumma’s eyes got teary seeing her son’s pale ,weak but happy face. She went from there making excuses. Sumit finished the plate and uttered : “ab apni diary padho na riddhu,mujhe sunna hai tumne kya likha hai.”

Riddhima uttered : “par aunty,i mean tumhari mumma kya sochegi?”

Sumit uttered with a sad smile : “don’t worry ,wo abhi yahan nahi aayegi.she went from there to hide her tears.kahin kisi kone me baithkar apni kismat par aansoo baha rahi hogi,but i can’t help na...apne hisse ka dukh sabko uthana padta hai...mera mai utha raha hun aur wo apna...bas dukh is baat ka hai ki unke dukh ka reason mai hun.”

Riddhima uttered hurriedly : “chodo na sumit,chalo mai diary padhti hun.bahut sara likha hai maine.......dekho,kitne pages hain tum count bhi nahi kar paoge.”

Sumit smiled and uttered : “par mai sab sunna chahta hun...mai bhi toh janu tumne kitni saitaniyan ki hai mere absence me...

Riddhima pouted and uttered : “sumit....

Sumit laughed and gestured her to read the diary...riddhima sat beside him and started reading it..
