part 37 :Aradhana - Anmol Bandhan



"Abb humey Kripa ki shadi ke liye jaldi karna hai. Angad bhi yahin hai. Shadi ka tareek pakki karayengey." Gayatri started her plans as soon as she woke up.

Surya smiled as sipped his coffee after Gayatri's constant pestering. "Jaroor karengey. Magar ek baat pehla main bua ji ko batana chahta hoon."


Gayatri fumed, "kyon? Abhi tak maaussi ji ne kiya hi kya hai? Bachoan ka dil thoothey waqt kahan they wo? Abb koyi jaroorat nahin hai unhey khabar pahoonchaney ki."

Surya tried to console her, "Gayatri! Main bhi tumhare dard ko samajhta hoon.  Aur Angad ke pyar ko bhi. Bachon ka dard bhi samajhta hoon. Magar ek baat badon se kehna bhi uchit hai. Jo bhi Naina ne kiya uske badle hum bhi wahin harkatein karein woh theek nahin hoga."

Gayatri twisted her lips in anguish. "Donon dulha dulhan yahin hai. Donon ko lekar mandir mein shadi karayengey. Yehi uchit lagraha hai mujhko. Baaki aapki marzi. Iss baar aap deir nahin lagana." She warned as expressed her fears.

Surya nodded as getting ready for his morning prayers.

"GAYATRI! GAYATRI!" Surya yelled while Gayatri was chatting with Kripa in the bedroom as his prayers were finished.

Gayatri hurriedly reached him, "kya hogaya hai? Kyon itna chilla rahey hai? Puja ke samagri theek se wahi  rakhdiya tha na?" She was confused for his anger filled screams. Kripa followed mother and worriedly looked at father.

"Kya hai ji yeh?" Gayatri was puzzled at a big yellow post cover in Surya's hand. He was shivering with anger.

"Kya hai yeh papa?" Kripa wondered why Surya was furious over a postal mail.  Surya laughed aloud with sarcasm filled tone. "Jaan-na chahti ho yeh kya hai? Wo pagal aurat ne bheja hai. Tumhara ashique bankay phir raha hai na! Uske mom ne bheja hai. Pata hai yeh kya hai?" He swallowed hatred and cursed the sender of the mail.

Kripa and Gayatri exchanged looks as partly understood Surya's accuses. "Ashique ki mom? Aapke matlab hai Naina? Abb Kya kiya hai unhoney?" Gayatri eagerly asked with pounding heart.

Surya flipped the papers in front of them. "Kya kahoon uss aurat ki harkataon ke barey mein? Wo humarey kilaf file suit kiye hai. Property ka hissa maang rahein hain."

Gayatri was shocked, "property? Kiss property ka baat kar rahey hai aap?

Surya sighed aloud, "Humney bua ji ki property ko hazab liye they. Wo hissa abb unhey wapas chahiye. Naina ney sab bachon ke taraf se ek suit dhakil kiya hai humarey kilaf."

Gayatri put finger on her mouth with shock. "Yeh kya Naina ka dimak kharab hagaya hai? Kahan ka hissa? Kaisi property? Mujhey toh kuch bhi samajh mein nahin aaraha hai."

Surya explained controlling his anger. "wo Naina claim karti hai ki Babuji ke paas jo bhi tha wo undonon bhai-behen ka hissa tha. Aur us behen ke hisse ko humney uske naam nahin kiya. Usey abb yaad dilakar hissa wapas maang rahi hai. Kya karoon iss aurat ko?"

Gayatri wondered by putting her hands over cheeks. "Yeh kaise din aagaye hain? Hum kyon maassi ki property lengey. Maassi ji ko pata nahin tha kya wo property pura babuji ka tha? Aur abb yeh hisse ka matlab kya hai? Yeh Naina ka dimaag toh such much kharab hogaya hai. Abb kya karein? Ek museebat ke upper aur ek, pata nahin kahan tak humey lejayegi!"

Kripa was confused and seated in the couch watching her parents with wondering looks. Surya supported Gayatri. "Tum theek hi kehrahi ho Gayatri! Wo aurat ka kya bharosa? Kissi na kissi tarah humare khandan se naata chutney ki prayatne toh kar hi rahi hai. Abb kissi waqt  humare properties per stay order liya jayega. Iss ghar ka bhi. Pata nahin humey yahan rehney dengey; wo bhi kitney din tak, waqt hi batayega. Humarey bank accounts per bhi stay hojayega. Mujhey kissi lawyer se turant baat karni padegi."

While they were discussing Angad called Surya for permission to take Kripa for lunch. Surya at first hesitated to send and Angad promised to take care of Kripa well. "Maama! Mujh pur bharosa rakhiye. Main sahi salamat Kripa ko wapas le aoonga. Yeh mera wada hai. Hum lunch pur hi toh ja rahey hai. Sham tak ajayengey." He succeeded in convincing Surya.

"Yeh case solve honey tak tum Angad se milna jhulna thoda kum karo, Kripa! Main iss problem ke saat saat aur koyi problems face nahin karpaoonga. Angad ko tumhi samjha sakti hai. Tum apne papa ko samajh rahi ho na?" Surya pitifully requested Kripa before leaving home. Kripa promised to support her father.

After Kripa left to meet Angad for lunch, Surya called Devyani on Gayatri's advice to discuss about the suit. Devyani was astonished and apologised as innocent of the latest development. She promised to look into the matter and get back to him as soon as she got answers. She didn't call back but Naina gave him a rude call in 15minutes.

"Kyon darr gaye, Surya? Bua se complaint karne chala aaye? Mere bte ko apni beti ki jaal mein phasakey humara daulat per bhi hak jatana chahtey hai?"

Surya was shocked at her wicked accuses and furiously responded. "Naina! Yeh koyi tareeka hai humse iss tarah baat karney ki? Kyon kar rahi ho aisa?"

Naina didn't calm down from her tone. "Kyon?  Aap loge  mere bte ko wapas kardijiye, tub mein case wapas leti hoon. Nahin toh main tum logon ke anth dekhey bina chain se so-oonga nahin."

She continued, "Behen ko apni taqdeer per chodkar tumhara baba acha nahin kiya tha. Bahut mehannat karke hum itna bada social status aur prestige banaye hai. Main asaani se mere bte ko tumharey hawala nahin karoongi. Tumhari beti mere bte ke layak nahin hai. He deserves better."

Surya silently tried to understand her statements. He fell into dilemma between two problems; Angad and Kripa relationship and the case filed against him by Naina.

Naina took advantage of his hesitation, "Main jaanti hoon Angad yahan engagement chodkar aapke paas aagaya hai. Main abhi issi waqt mere bte ko yahan chahti hoon. Usse wapas bhej deejiye. Aapki beti ki jaal se mukt karadijiye. Main apkey barein mein sochna bhi bund kardoongi. Manzoor hai?" She behaved like a shrewd business woman.

Surya fumed, "bachon ke jindagi se kyon khel rahi ho, Naina! Mujhey yeh umeed nahin tha tumse. Kya bigada hai bachoan ne tumhara? Jab hum wahan they tum toh Kripa ko pasand karti thi na?" He became typical girl's father at that moment.

Naina raised her voice, "Kripa se jada acha rista hai mere Angad ke liye. Humarey barabari ka. Mera achayi ka faida mut uthayiye. Main ghar aaye mehmonon ka apman nahin karti. Uper se aap log mama ke ristedaar hai. Jab unhey aapke jaroorat thi tub unke kadar toh aapne kiya hi nahin. Phir bhi mainey mama ke vastey aapke aadar kiya tha. Abb uss aadar ke respect kartey hue mere khwaish ki izzat kariye. Main Gupta ji ko vachan de chuki hoon ki unki beti meri ghar ki bahu banegi. Main kyon Kartik se unki shadi nahin kar sakti, yeh toh aapko bataney ki jaroorat nahin samajhti. Abb mere bte mujhey wapas chahiye. Aap hi ussey wapas bhej saktey hai." Naina's tone authoritatively instructed Surya.

Surya felt depressed and collapsed into coach without promising anything to Naina. Would he able to get Angad marry Kripa now? Would he put his property at stake? It won't be easy to get rid of Court cases. How can he put Kripa's life into trouble when Naina had so much hatred against his family? Would Angad able to protect Kripa from his family? He would visualize Kripa's dreams scattered in front of his eyes. Surya collapsed in the couch as plenty of thoughts surrounded in his mind.

Gayatri was worried and approached him "Kya hua? Kya kaha Naina ne? Aap kyon aisey kaamp rahey hai?"

Surya explained the whole conversation in tidbits.  "Samajh mein nahin aaraha hai abb main kya karoon. Kya Kripa sukhi reh payegi aise ristey se judkar? Naina ki baat mana karengey toh hum kahan rahengey? Rehney ke liye yeh ghar bhi nahin bachega. Pata nahin yeh case kahan tak chalegi. Humey pata hai nyay humarey saat hai magar Kahan se case ke liye paisay lekey aoonga? Gaon me property bejneyke baad Jo bhi  bacha hai wo Kripa ki shadi ke liye humney save karey they. Lagta hai uss se hi abb case ka kharcha uthana padega. Iskey siva hum kya kar sakte hai?"

Gayatri sniffed into her sari ends. "Bachon ko juda karkey hum kaunsi sukh paayengey? Jo bhi hoga dekha jayega. In donon ke shadi karadijiye. Dekhengey Naina kya kar sakti hai. Case toh hum jaroor jeetengey. Pura property ka haqdar aap hai aur apke baad Kripa. Yeh maussi ji bhi jantey hai."

Surya smiled , "Gayatri! Lagta hai tum aaj kal bahut filmey dekh rahi ho."

Gayatri smiled through tears, "haan issi liye mera sochney ka tareeka bhi badal gaya hai. Aap jaisa conservative nahin hoon."

Surya faintly smiled, "soch movies dekhne se thodi hi na badalti hai? Naina ko hi dekhlo. Bada ghar aur status banaya hai society mein. Phir bhi kitna chotay vichar hain. Apne bte ka hi jindagi barbad karney mein tuli huyi hai."

Gayatri nodded her head as agreed. "Abb kya karengey?"

Surya thoughtfully shook his head, "hum Angad ko yahan se bhejdengey. Yeh papers per sarey bachon ke signatures hai. Pata nahin agar Angad yeh jaanta hai ki nahin.  Kyon Angad yeh shadi karna chahta hai? yeh such much pyar hai?  Agar ho sakey toh apni maa ki vichar mein khud badlav layega. Baaki bhagwan ki marzi pur chod dengey. Main apni beti ki rista uss ghar mein iss mahole mein hargeez nahin karpaoonga."



*********

Shashank came into conscious late afternoon. Doctors diagnosed that Shashank took overdose sleeping pills and had long deep sleep. He smiled at his daughters reassuring his welfare. Both sisters broke in tears over Shashank's chest to relieve their tension. "Papa! Aapko kya hogaya tha? Kyon achanak itna bimar padgaye hai? Aap toh humey dara hi diye thay." Anjali mumbled in soft cries.

Shashank smiled and caressed heads of both daughters. "Main itni jaldi nahin marjaoonga, pagli! Mujhey iss duniya mein aur bhi bahut duties nibhana hai. Ridhima ki haat peeley karni hai. Uski bidai mere haaton se karni hai. Apne naati naatey se khelna hai. Itni jaldi hi kya hai Bhagwan ke paas jaaney ka?" He tried to lighten the situation but Ridhima broke into tears. Every minute passed by made her decision weak.

She came out of the room and called Arman but couldn't get him over phone. She called Misthy and conveyed the message. Misthy consoled her, "Ridhi! I know what you are going through. Magar Yeh tumhari aur Armaan ki jindagi ka sawal hai. Yaad rakhna, Tum jo bhi decision logi uss se teen teen  jindagiyan judi huyi hai.  Tum donon ke jndagi ke saat saat Khanna pariwar ka sukh-dukh bhi tumhari agali kadam pur depend hota hai. Think and take wise step. Armaan bahut upset tha tumse. Bahut samjha ke wapas bheja hai. Wo raat tak ghar pahooncha jayega. Ussey baat karo aur housala do ki tum uske saat ho." Ridhima promised her to do accordingly.
