part 10 : Aradhana - Anmol Bandhan


Around lunch time Arman couldn't wait to walk to Dr.Rahul's cabin expecting Ridhima there though he suspected that she was not working under Dr.Rahul. He cursed himself for not having her mobile or landline with him. 'I should have taken her mobile number from Misthy atleast. Ghar ka number bhi pata nahin. Kal tak mera peecha peecha ghoomti thi. Ussey peecha chudvaney ke liye main kya kya nahin sochta tha. Aaj uski liye itna taras raha hoon magar ussey bilkul mera parwa nahin hai.' His thoughts paused when he saw Rahul alone was busy with his patients in his cabin. He turned back silently with disappointment.
'Hi!' Atul naughtily greeted Arman when both bumped into each other when Arman sneaked out of Rahul's cabin.


'Hi!' Arman reciprocated embarrassingly. Atul exchanged looks from Arman and Rahul's cabin. Atul raised eyebrows as he got a wonderful chance to tease Arman, 'Arman!! Tum yahan Kya kar raha hai? Doosra Doctor ki kya jaroorat pada hai?'

Arman was irritated by Atul's enquiries but controlled his anger as he was caught red handedly. He rubbed back of his neck embarrassingly 'wo .. wo..' he slowly composed himself and continued, 'Atul! Tum..wo.. tumney ' kahin Ridhima ko dekha hai?' He atlast gathered guts to enquire about Ridhima.

Atul raised his eyebrows at him, 'Ridz ko? Kya baat hai, Arman! Ridz kyon chahiye? Kyon dhoond raha hai ussey? Usney kuch kiya hai Kya?  As far information I had, she is not working under you now right? Tum toh ussey nikal diya tha na yeh kehke ki wo tumhara saat kaam karnay ki layak nahin hain!'

Arman clenched his jaws 'saalay ko abb chance mila hai mujhey taunt ne. Issey kya farak padta hai ki main Ridhima ko rakhoon ya nikaldoon? Bada aaya enquiry karney. budkismati se yeh mera co-brother niklega jab mera rista Ridhima se hogi.'

Though he cursed Atul inside he smiled out to mask his irritation and stroked his hair back 'kuch nahin, just checking if she is around here. Kuch kaam hai uss se.' he said sheepishly and left Atul alone.

Atul immediately called Ridhima when Arman was disappeared, 'Hey Ridz! Good job! Yahan Arman bahut tadap raha hai tere liye. Aur tadapaon ki wo tere paas daud kar aajayega.' He explained how Arman was searching for Ridhima. 'Thanks Ridz! Aaj mein bahut kush hoon. Tumhari wajah se aaj Arman mujhse baat kiya hai.'

***********

Angad felt empty when he couldn't meet Kripa at lunch. He was wondered whose wedding Kripa was attending to. His thoughts went on his cousin, 'maama ki ladki Kripa jaisi dikhegi? What if he has no daughters at all? Kya maama ki beti se milne ke baad main Kripa ko bhuljaoonga?' he sighed and wondered why he was comparing Kripa with his dream girl.

Mannan dramatically hit his head at Angad's dilemma since Angad bade bye to Kripa in the morning. 'Kyon itna sochta hai, Angad? Ek baar Hyderabad hokar aajao. Yeh sab doubts clear hojayega. Why do you trouble yourself in this confusion? Bechari Kripa ko kyon tung kar raha hai? Tumhara dil toh wahan tumhari cousin pur laga huva tha, phir bhi yahan Kripa ke ore keench ke jaaraha hai. Itna confused kyon hogaye ho? Agar tum ek baar tumhara mama ka ghar chala gaya toh Yeh pura mamla sulajh jayega. You can decide whom you want to take seriously into your life.' Mannan warned Angad to divert his attention from Kripa to his mission. He knew Angad's dreams about his girl.

Angad was influenced by Mannan's words. He called for air tickets and left for airport in the evening without informing at home. He already decided to go to Sarma's home place after reaching Hyderabad. 'Abb Hyderabad mein inn logon ko kahan kahan dhoondoo? Aakhir uss gaon mein koyi toh hoga uss khandan ke barein mein bataney wala.' He decided to visit the village in disguise to enquire about Sarma family.

'I can't believe this, Naina! How could you do this? Kum se kum mujhey toh bata diya hota.' Dilip fumed on Naina at dinner time when the news about Kripa's visit was released.

Naina suspiciously looked at Anittah and Anittah pointed her looks at Teddy who was the informer to Devyani. Naina furiously looked at Teddy but Teddy acted ignorant as always he knew how Naina got angry on him. 'Main kaise iska muh band karna bhulgaya tha?' Naina cursed in her mind.

'Kyon Naina! Jawab hai tere paas? Kyon yeh baat chupakar rakha hai? Aakhir kya bigada hai uss bechari ne? Itni door se humey dhoondkar aayi thi aur tere paas uski khayal rakhney ka itna time bhi nahin hai? Kya tumhey uski maa baap yahin izzat diye they? Kum se kum mujhey bulaliya hota!' Devyani scolded Naina as she heard how Kripa felt alone.

Naina flared her nostrils 'Mama! Meiney kya kiya tha? Uss ladki ek raat ke liye bhi yaha nahin rehpayi aur bina bataye chaligayi thi. Mainey uski khatirdari mein koyi kami nahin ki. Acha khilaya pilaya. Aur uss se jada kya karti? I had an important meeting to attend! Kya wo ek raat ke liye yaha nahin ruk sakti thi? Shukre keejiye ki main ussey andar aaney diya Yeh jaante huve bhi ki uska dada ne humey ghar ki andar bhi nahin aaney diya tha.'

Devyani replied in sorrowful tone 'Wo bhi kardiya hota. Kum se kum apni gussa toh kum hoti. Jo humara saat huva tha wo meri galati ki wajah se thi. Abb Kripa ne toh humey kuch nahin kaha tha na? Tumsey yeh umeed nahin thi, Naina! You really disappointed me.' She composed herself, 'Yeh sab chodo. Abb humey sochna hai ki aagey kya karna hai. Mein abhi jaakar Kripa ko ghar le aoongi.' She turned to her son, 'Dilip! Tum mere saat chalo. Hum abhi Kripa ko ghar le ayengey. Mein Kripa ko humse miley bina wapas nahin jaaney doongi.'

Dilip agreed immediately 'haan theek hai mama! Let's bring her here.'

Both headed to Shah House leaving furious Naina behind. Aaliyah escaped from there with excitement to convey the message to Angad. She tried several times but Angad's mobile was switched off during the flight.

Aaliyah was excited when Angad called back her late night. 'Kahan hai aap? Guess bhai! What great news I'm going to give you now.'

Angad chuckled 'mujhey kya pata tum kyon itna calls kiya tha? Kahin Damini aunty toh shagun lekar aagayi thi tere liye?' He teased her as he knew she got irritated whenever matter came to Bose family.

'Bhai! Mera shagun nahin tera shagun honey wala hai!!' Aaliyah's tone was full of excitement unlike other times.

'Mera shagun?' Angad teased back, 'Do do beheney ghar pe shadi ke liye taiyyar hai aur ek bada bhai hai mere aagey. Mera shadi pehla kyon hogi? Wo bhi Kiss se?'

Aaliyah chuckled 'Dulhan agar khud apna dulha ko dhoondkar aagayi toh tera shadi hi pehla hogi!!' she teased some more time.

Angad became curious, 'Dulhan? Kaun hai wo? Aaliyah! tum theek se nahin batana chahti toh mut batao. Mujhey bahut kaam hai.'

Aaliyah warned him from hung up 'Yahan abb tak bahut drama huva tha teri dulhan ko lekar!.' She giggled with excitement as built up more suspense.

Angad was more inquisitive 'meri dulhan? Kaun hai? Jaldi se batao.'

Aaliyah interrupted him 'pehle yeh batao tum kahan ho?'

Angad was irritated for her dragging the matter but hesitated with shy for a moment and replied, 'Main dadi ki gaon jaaraha hoon.'

Aaliyah chuckled, 'Wah kya baat hua bhai? Abb main surely keh sakti hoon ki tumhara shadi pehli hogi! Wahan tum apni jeevan saathi se milney gaya tha aur yahan wohi khud tumhey dhoondte huve aayi thi.'

'WHAT DO YOU MEAN WO KHUD AGAYI? HOW? KAISE? WHEN? WHO ELSE CAME?' Angad jumped at her words. Aaliyah thought not to tease him anymore and explained the whole incident and Devyani's plan to bring Kripa 'Uski naam hai 'Kripa' aur wo Sapna Shah ki shadi mein aayi thi. Mom aur Anittah se mili thi. Humsey koyi ghar mein nahin tha aur wo udhaas hokar wapas chali gayi thi, Teddy ne dadi ko bataya. Abb Dadi aur Dad went to bring her. Agar aap hota toh kitna acha hota. You should have run to meet her.'

A sweet tremble ran in Angad's body with the sound of 'Kripa' name. He couldn't believe his ears 'tum such bole rahi hai? Are you sure? I can't believe it. Oh My God! Do you know, Meri elevator friend ki naam bhi 'Kripa' hai?' His heart was humming some sweet sensations without his efforts.

'Haan aapne batadiya tha, bhai! When I heard this girl's name I recollected about elevator girl. Hope she is the same girl. Wo bhi kissi shadi mein aayi thi na?'

'Tere mooh mein ghee shakar. Agar wo elevator girl hi mera dream girl nikili toh mein turant shadi kardaloonga. You are right she was off for her friend's wedding and she looks so traditional. Shayad Sarma khandan ki hi hogi.' He laughed shamelessly in excitement. He immediately planned in his mind about his return, 'Aaliyah! Main abhi wapas aaraha hoon. I can't wait to see her.' He hung up and ran to get a conveyance to Mumbai immediately.

*********

Arman came home early as he missed Ridhima badly when he recollected the closeness with her on previous evening. For his luck, Ridhima was already working in the kitchen. She thought she would finish preparing snacks for Arman before he came home. She was shy to face him since Atul informed about Arman's curiosity to meet her. She had decided to avoid him for few days.

Arman slowly sneaked into kitchen and leaned to the door while Ridhima was kneading flour for poories. 'Tumhari mobile number kya hai?' He suddenly asked as got ready to save her number in his mobile. Ridhima was startled at his sudden voice and jumped back with a hand on her heart 'TUM? Kub aya tha? You scared me, Arman!'

Arman smiled and naughtily checked her 'kyon chup chap kaam karke chali janey ki irada hai kya?'

Ridhima pouted as pretended angry on him, 'main kyon chup chap kaam karoon? I was bored at home and thought to finish work before you come.' She defended herself for her early presence in his house and turned to finish kneading.

He walked to her and cuddled her from behind 'I missed you. Why don't you join me again?'

She turned her face to him 'rehney do. I'm not capable of working under you.'

Arman noticed the sarcasm in her tone and pressed her close to his body, 'Tumhey kaam karney ki thodi mein pooch raha tha? I want you in front of my eyes. I need to see you all the time.' He whispered and rubbed his lips behind her ears. She felt goosebumps all over body and closed her eyes as leaned back to his body. He whispered in her ears as 'can you join me?' She smiled without opening her eyes and shook her head as agreed. 'Then talk to Dr.Gupta and start working from tomorrow.' Ridhima opened her eyes and sharply looked at him 'main kyon baat karoon? Tum khud baat karlo. You only told him that I'm unfit to work under you.' She taunted him and she was sure that her father won't change his decision so easily.

Arman released his cuddle and turned her to his side 'no, this time you have to do something to join me. If you cannot, stop coming here too. I don't want to give unnecessary hopes to myself.' Ridhima frowned at his threatening words, 'okay, papa se baat karloongi.' Arman smiled and pulled her in his arms 'that's like my girl.'

She smiled as he touched his head to hers, 'mera bhi ek sharat hai,' she doubtfully asked as she looked into his eyes. Arman kissed her nose tip, 'anything for you, batao, kya chahiye?' She was blushed, 'you have to take me to work everyday.' He laughed and tightened her in his arms as kissed her neck, 'it'll be my pleasure.' She giggled as his kiss tickled her and cuddled his neck. He pressed her and closed eyes with satisfaction.

'Kya mein issey use kar rahi hoon? No, I'm not. I love her. I could not spend one day without her. I cannot ask Dr.Gupta about her reinstate. It'll be just an embarrassing situation. What would he think about me? Ek na ek din humare baat toh ussey kehna hi padega but not now.' He sighed as his string of thoughts going on and affectionately caressed her back.

'Arman! I need to wash my hands. Nahin toh tum aata se hi shower lena padega.' Ridhima naughtily said when flour got all over his hair when her hands caressed his hair. He understood and tightened his cuddle 'no problem agar shower tumhey dena hai toh.' She giggled and kissed his neck 'only after marriage.' He kissed her cheek 'I wish it happens soon.' She blushed and he kissed her cheek again.

 ********

Angad relaxed on the back seat of taxi around 11 in the night, 'Khaash kripa ki barein mein mujhey pehla maloom hojata. I should have asked her about the details of the wedding she was attending to. Uss elevator ka duty toh nahin karna padta. Kripa ke liye elevator boy kya kuch bhi honey ko taiyyar hoon main. I wish Kripa hi mera dream girl hogi. No wonder I was so attracted to her. Kal wo bahut udaas thi shayad issi kaaran se. Mujhey pehla maloom hota toh ussey bahon mein lekar uski dard turant  door kardeta tha. I can't believe she came to meet us. It means they care about us. Especially Kripa came to meet us. Oh God, will it be true she is my maama's daughter? My dream girl is such a beautiful girl? I can't wait to see her in the morning. I should go to Shah House directly. Yeh door kyon jaldi nahin kat-thi? Mujhey dekhkar Kripa kaise react hogi? Wahan doosiri Kripa mili toh? No, let me hope to see the same Kripa there. Had I known before about Kripa I wouldn't have gone to Hyderabad. I missed her badly.' Angad couldn't wait to meet Kripa with excitement.



 *************

Around 8, Angad paid taxi and walked into an old family property of Shah Family. His heart was thundering with excitement to see his dream girl. He had mixed feelings of Kripa and her name. He was just hoping to see the same elevator girl as his dream girl. Guests were just getting into morning rituals in Shah House when Angad walked through the front yard of Shah House premises.

Angad was irritated for the constant alarm of messages in his mobile and checked them before stepping into the house. He had ten messages all from Aaliyah saying 'Urgent call me back'. He was wondered and immediately called her back to find out the urgency. 'Bhai! Aap directly ghar aaraha hai na? You already have your dream girl here. Dadi and Dad brought her home late last night.' Aaliyah hurriedly informed Angad.

Angad was excited to hear the news and turned back without seeing Shahs and without hearing Subhankar's greetings. 'Kya wo agayi? Kaisi hai wo? Kush hai sabse milkey? Did you tell her about me?' Angad showered questions while caught the same taxi that was parked nearby stand.

Aaliyah teased him 'stop! Stop! Stop! Come and see your girl, man! Main kuch nahin bataoongi aap hi khud aakar dekhlijiye. . Haan magar, ek baat kehdeti hoon. She is beautiful.' She hung up before Angad could enquire her some more.
