part 3 : pyar ke mod pe (ss)




“Tumse milke……”

riddhima remembered that day well when she met with arman. She went ‘new York city’ for her research work and when she returned after 3-4 days, saw an unknown guy was sitting in drawing room and talking with her parents.seeing her,padma uttered excitedly : “aa gayi beta? dekh toh koun aaya hai?”

seeing that Indian guy,riddhima glared her mom and asked : “koun?”

padma scared a bit seeing her angry face and uttered slowly : “wo..actually india se hai..

Riddhima replied glaring arman : “means jo india se hai sabko mai pehchanti hun? Mom,I don’t have any interest who is he,I have to go back my centre,bas kuch files chahiye they so came back,I am in a hurry.”

Arman felt weird seeing her behavior..he couldn’t believe she was shshank-padma’s daughter as they were very nice person and this girl was so rude,didn’t know manners also.he came here that day when riddhima left for new York and in 3 days he got shashank –padma was so good and friendly so he thought their daughter would be like them but she was totally opposite of her parents.

but arman felt guilt seeing padma’s sad face so stepped forward and uttered : “hi,aapki journey kaisi rahi?fine na?

Riddhima glared him once from head to toe and went from there.arman mumbled : “baap re!sakshat kali mata hai..kya gusse bhari aankhen hain,lagta hai kachcha chaba jayegi.”

Suddenly shshank-padma burst into laughter. Arman looked and them and understood they heard what he said so held his ears and uttered biting tongue : “sorry,wo munh se apne aap nikal gaya.”

Shshank uttered smilingly : “meri beti kali mata lagi aapko arman? Kitni khubsurat hai wo..

Arman uttered : “ji sir,par humari kali mata bhi bahut khubsurat hai,aapne dhyan se nahi dekha hoga..bas difference itna hai ki wo black hai aur aapki beti fair…bahut jyada…lagta hai touch karo to maili ho jayegi..”

Padma rolled eyes and uttered : “dr. arman..bas ek nazar me aapne itna dekh liya? Very bad….riddhima ko pata chala na toh aapki khair nahi…

Arman uttered holding ears…: “sorry padma aunty,par insaan ko ekbaar dekhne se hi sab pata chalta hai.jaise aap dono kitne achche ho,dekhte hi laga mujhe ‘second mumma-papa’ mil gaye aur..aapki beti ko dekhte hi laga ki meri band bazne wali hai yahan.”

Shshank and padma laughed again and shshank uttered : “beta,do you know the meaning of ‘second mumma-papa’? wo aapke father in law and mother in law honge.means riddhima aapki……

But in a while arman screamed…: “nahi!!.........

Padma uttered smilingly : “itni bhi buri nahi hai meri beti..you know ,yahan ke ladke pagal hain usse shadi karne ko..par riddhima don’t agree for it.”

Arman asked : “kyon?usey kya pasand hai?”

Padma uttered sighly : “wah shadi nahi karna chahti.anyways beta,aap batao naya hospital kaisa laga?and interview?

Aman uttered smilingly : “good..i am joining from day after tomorrow.”

Padma uttered : “aaj toh whole day aapka wahi beet gaya,tired honge?chaliye dinner karte hain.”

after sometime arman came to dinner and saw like everyday, some unknown dishes on the dining table . From 3 days he was taking these type of foods and got bored.they were very less oily and less spicy and tasteless. So,when padma served him,he asked with a hesitate : “aunty,aaplog roj yahi khate ho?”

Padma uttered surprisingly : “haan,kyon?”

Arman uttered : “nahi,actually aap Indian foods pasand nahi karte?”

Shshank : “kyon nahi beta…mujhe toh ‘makke ki roti’,’sarson ka saag’ and ‘raita’…aah!yaad karte hi water came in my mouth…

Padma added : “aur mujhe..rajasthan ka ‘daal baati churma’..kitne din ho gaye khaye hue…

Arman asked surprisingly : “toh phir?”

Shshank : “phir kya,aapki aunty ko kitchen mein jana mana hai,she has high bp aur humare cook American hai,usey nahi aata yeh sab banana..

Arman uttered smilingly : “phir toh mujhe hi kuch karna padega.”

Shshank asked surprisingly : “kya arman?”

Arman replied smilingly : “kal pata chalega aapko.”

…………………………………………………………………….

Next day when shshank came for breakfast,saw someone was in kitchen,not their cook.he asked padma surprisingly : “koun hai kitchen me?tumne new cook appoint kiya kya?”

Padma laughed and replied : “arman hai wo..aap bhi na..

Shshan got more surprised.he was about to ask something but just then arman came there with hot coffee and breakfast…its ‘chole bhature’.he served big size bhature in front of shshank and uttered : “liziye uncle..garmagaram chole bhature…aapki favourite…

Shshank asked surprisingly : “par beta..yeh aap kya kar rahe ho?”

Arman replied smilingly : “abhi aapko kuch nahi kehna aur puchna..bas shuru ho jaiye..aur aunty ,aap bhi baith jaiye..uncle ka sath dene ko koi chahiye na,nahi toh beechare akele khate hue bore ho jayenge..

Padma smiled and uttered : “beta,aap bhi baitho na.”

Arman looked here and there and asked slowly : “miss kali ma means aapki beti toh nahi hai na ghar me?”

Padma giggled hearing it and asked : “kyon?”

Arman replied : “agar usey bura laga toh?”

Padma uttered sighly : “nahi beta,wo kal raat wahin thi,pata nahi kabtak aaye,aur wo yeh Indian foods nahi khati..aap baitho.”

Arman nodded and sat. shshank kept a piece of bhature with chole in his mouth and uttered : ‘wow!its delicious!aapko toh bahut kuch aata hai banana..”

Arman nodded and uttered : “wo,mumma nahi hai na,toh dadi se sikh liya,papa ko bahut shouk hai ,kabhi kabhi ghar me rahta hun toh banata hun unke liye..dadi se nahi hota na.”

Padma uttered smilingly : “ab bahu aa jaye toh aap usko sikha dena,wo sambhal legi sab.”

Hearing it arman remembered what tragedy had happened with him in india.he liked his papa’s choice nupur…nupur always used to meet with him when their parents were there .arman felt it weird like they were keeping their eyes on their daughter and nupur talked him very less..whenever arman asked her anything..her answer was..yes or no. arman thought may be she didn’t like to talk much and arman liked that type of girl who was shy in nature ,so he liked her much. He was also happy to see that his dad and dadi was very happy with this relation..but on his wedding day,when he went to take his bride..came back alone as nupur had left her house with her boyfriend without telling anyone.that day his dad got his first heart attack.arman also broke totally. He started staying at home only ,left hospital and everything.he felt insulted.he had completed his PG some way and then his dad decided to send him abroad. When arman opposed,he answered : “beta,mera sapna tha aap fellowship karoge aur aaj chance mil raha hai..mera dost shshank gupta America me rahta hai,he is very happy to know about coming of you..maine sab intzaam kar diya hai..”

Arman : “par dad,aapko aur dadi ko akele chodkar jana mujhe thik nahi lagta.”

Dadi : “beta,hum akele kahan hain? Sab relatives hain,tumhare friends hain..humara khyal rakhenge,par beta tu yahan rahega to bahut kuch yaad aayega,beta..par kuch saal in sabse dur rahega to tu wo sab bhul payega..

Billy : “haan aramn,please is baar mera kaha maan le.iske baad tujhse kuch nahi manguna..”

Arman uttered with wet voice : “aisa mat kahiye dad. Maine aapki baat sada mana hai aur manta rahunga.mai jaunga…

……………………………………………….. 

As riddhima was entering house,saw their cook was coming with a shopping bag in his hand. Riddhima asked surprisingly : “what happened marco?why are you coming today so late?”

He nodded in na and replied : “no ma’m,I came at sharp 6 o’ clock but got one new cook is appointed.he was cooking today and sent me to take some fresh veggies.

Riddhima got surprised hearing it. This means yesterday night whom she had met,he was a cook ,appointed by parents.she entered and saw her mumma-papa was having breakfast and that guy was in kitchen.she looked at the dining table once and got some Indian foods are there. arman,who was taking a big size bhatura (puri) for padma,stopped seeing riddhima and seeing her angry look,asked immediately : “good morning ma’m..will you have breakfast?”

Riddhima glared him angrily and went upstairs in her room. Arman heaved a long breathe and uttered : “jaan bach lakhon paye”.

But heard shshank’s voice : “nahi beta,bilkul jaan nahi bachi hai…ab aapke sath hum dono ki bhi jaan khatre men hai..we are also in danger..

Padma uttered in a worrying voice : “aaj riddhima itni jaldi kaise aa gayi? Ab humari band bazegi..usey yeh sab oily food bilkul pasand nahi.”

Arman uttered : “sorry aunty,par itna bhi restriction nahi rakhna chahiye..monthly once toh kha sakte hain aap..anyways,mai lunch ka preparation karta hun..kya khayenge bataiye aaplog?

Padma uttered : “beta,aap yeh sab chodo,kab aapko hospital join karna hai?

Arman uttered smilingly : “kal se mai busy ho jaunga so I want to spend the whole day with you.”

Just then arman’s mobile rang. It was billy…”beta,kaisa hai?”

Arman uttered smilingly : “Namaste dad..i am fine..aaj mai yahan cooking kar raha hun,uncle-aunty ki favourite dishes banana hai.”

Billy laughed and uttered : “good beta,aapka dill lag gaya na?”

Arman replied smilingly : “yes dad..after you, I have met some nice person..

Billy again laughed and uttered : “buttering karna koi balvinder mallik ke bête se sikhe..achcha,lunch me meri fav,dish khilana aap shshank ko.”

Arman asked surprisingly : ‘aapki fav dish kyon papa?”

Billy : “kyonki yeh humdono ki fav dish thi bachpan me..teri dadi banaya karti thi aur shshank sara kha jata tha mujhse cheenkar.every Sunday he used to come and stay our home only for ‘sweet pulav’ and ‘dum aloo” with ‘mango chautni.’

Shshank,who was listening as arman kept in speaker his phone,yelled….”abbey!yaad mat dila..phir roj tere bête ko yeh banana padega.”

Billy laughed loudly and uttered : “bana dega wo..mera beta hai..kisi cheez me peeche nahi hatega wo.”

Padma uttered : ‘bhai sa’b Namaste..aapke bête ne itne thode time me humara dill jeet liya..ab wapas nahi bhejungi isey..

They heard dadi’s voice : “thik hai padma ,rakh le..3 saal ke liye.”

Just then arman saw riddhima was coming there,he uttered slowly : “dad,mai aapko baad me call karta hun.” And cut the call and slipped from there hurriedly. riddhima came there,looked at her parents and asked with an angry voice : “medicine liya aaplogo ne?”

Padma nodded and uttered : “haan beta.”

Riddhima looked at shshank and uttered : “papa, cholesterol check karne aa jayenge dr.hussain..suger bhi check karva lena aap.”

Shshank nodded like a good boy.

Padma asked softly : “kuch chahiye beta? Kuch khayegi?”

Riddhima uttered with a serious tone : “I think aaj jo kuch bana hai ghar me,aapko pata hai I don’t like them.”

Padma uttered hurriedly : “kuch aur bana dega.”

Riddhima : “no,bas thodi soup bhijva dena aap.”

……………………………………….
Afte some time Marco came in riddhima’s room with ‘corn mushroom soup’ and ‘grilled veggie sandwich’.riddhima was hungry also but that time she was angry on her parents so refused to take anything.seeing hot soup and sandwich ,she started eating and got it delicious..marco,who was waiting if riddhima would want anything,asked : “ma’m will I go?”

Riddhima nodded and uttered : “it’s delicious marco..i loved it.now you have learnt to make soup and sandwich of my favourite.will you make one plate sandwich more?

Marco hesitate a bit then replied : “no ma’m,its not me..these are made by that guy..your new cook. I am telling him to make it.

Riddhima started coughing hearing it.she uttered hurriedly : “no need of it marco.you can go.”

Marco nodded and went from there.
…………………………..

Riddhima drifted into sleep for more than 4 hours as she was very tired. When she woke up,saw it was 1 at noon. She felt her stomach was empty so she freshened up hurriedly and came in dining room for lunch but she was numb seeing that the table was full of varieties of Indian food..and someone was humming in kitchen while stirring something in a pan which was kept on the gas stove. She inhaled and understood he was making ‘kheer’.she always avoided making these foods at home as her parents were too much fond of them but they had a lot health problems and doctor advised not to take them.so her anger reached in high ,she came near the kitchen and shouted : “listen mr….

But arman was so busy in making ‘kheer’ ,didn’t hear riddhima’s voice…now riddhima got more angry and yelled : “listen mr.cook…..i am talking with you only…”

'Mr. cook!!'...arman turned to her hearing it and mumbled : “mare gaye!!miss kali mata jag gayi hai….aunty bachao!!!”

Love you all
