Part 30 : All for your love



Next day when arman got up,saw riddhima was freshened up and was getting ready.he asked surprisingly : “itni subah kahan jana hai?”

Riddhima uttered slowly : “dadi aur papa humare lonavala orphanage ja rahe hain, they asked me.”

Arman uttered hurriedly : “haan ,toh tum bhi jao na unke sath. Waise bhi ghar me rahte bore ho gayi hogi.”



Riddhima uttered : “haan,jana chahti thi par dadi ne kaha tumse puch lun.”

Arman : “ mujhse puchne ki jarurat nahi riddhima,mai tumhara guardian nahin hun. Okay,kitne baze jana hai? Will I drop you in your house?”

Riddhima nodded in na and uttered : “papa aayenge lene mujhe.”

Arman nodded and went to freshen up. He thought to go early in hospital and talk to dr. kirti about riddhima’s behavior but this time she was looking normal.

When he came to breakfast,saw riddhima was still there. he asked : “kab aayenge wo log?”
Riddhima uttered sadly : “papa thode busy hain,shayad afternoon jaun.”

Ananya uttered : “koi baat nahi riddhima,aap wahan kuch din rehkar aana.”

Arman uttered : “haan, change bhi ho jayega..ghumna bhi aur bachchon ke sath time spend karna achcha lagta hai.kuch jarurat ho toh call kar lena,I am leaving for hospital now.thoda jaldi jana hai.”

Riddhima nodded and arman left for hospital. Coming In hospital,he called dr. kirti to know when she was coming but got to know she was on leave today .arman sighed and came in locker room .he wanted to discuss about riddhima’s case as soon as possible. He opened locker and took out patients file to check ,just then his eyes went on a diary…. “to arman mallik from sumit roy”. Suddenly he remembered sumit’s words…. “arman, bahut si baatein riddhima ke bare mein tumhe batana tha ,par mere paas time nahi hai,I know it. So I have wtitten all in this diary.hope it will be helpful to you to understand her.”

He took out the diary,caressed it while mumbled…’miss you mere dost’,and sat on the bench to read it. He started flipping the pages ,if he could get any clue about riddhima’s diary writing habit and his eyes stuck in one place…

Arman,

When we became friends and riddhima started sharing her personal life with me,I was surprised to know about one thing. That time she was in class 9. One day she showed me a diary and told me, “pata hai sumit,maine mumma ko tumhare bare mein bataya hai.”
I asked surprisingly : “mumma!”
Riddhima uttered confidently : “haan,mumma toh mujhe janm dete hi is duniya se chali gayi.par jab mai thodi badi hui,mumma ko dhundhti thi,dadi ne mujhe yeh diary diya tha aur kaha tha,main job hi mumma se kahna chahun,isme likhun.mumma ko sab pata chalega.and you know,mai ekdin bhi mumma ko diary na likhun toh lagta hai kuch missing hai…”
Jante ho arman,mujhe laga tha yeh ladki jarur kisi mental problem me hai par jab maine psychiatrist se baat ki,he told..its natural…nothing is weird. Jaise hum apne dill ki koi ichcha sapne me pura hote dekhte hain,waise hi riddhima apne ma se is diary ke jariye baat karti hai,par ab usey wo habit chodna chahiye..”
and he suggested me a solution. on her next birthday,I gifted her a diary and said : “ab se mujhe everyday diary likhna.”

riddhima nodded happily and after sometimes she stopped to write to mumma. Shayad wahi aadat uska phir se lout aaye ,par tum ghabrana mat ..slowly wo thik ho jayegi .

Arman nodded and mumbled : “thank you sumit,tumne mera problem solve kar diya.par isbaar wo apni mumma ko nahin,tumhe likh rahi hai and i know mujhe hi kuch karna hoga uski is habit ko chudane ke liye."

He came in library and started searching those type of case’s file and started reading them and he was relaxed knowing that those patients are not abnormal..they want only some time to forget that person ,whom they had lost.

………………………

At break time when arman was with his friends,sister lovely informed him that dr. shshank wanted to meet him in the cabin.when he came there,shshank uttered : “dr. arman,ek problem aa gaya hai,today I was about to go ‘lonavala orphangae’ . actually ek naye orphanage ka inauguration hai kal subah,thodi puja bhi hogi,kuch MPs bhi aa rahe hain is mouke par.the orphanage people are very nervous so I assured them to reach today surely. par aaj hi ek critical case aaya hai..i have to operate that child today only…so I am not able to go there.”

Arman asked worriedly : “mai koi help kar sakta hun sir?”

Dr. shshank nodded and said : “aap ma aur riddhima ko lekar wahan ke liye abhi nikal jao. If I get time, will come tomorrow surely.”

Arman asked confusingly : “par sir,mujhe wahan koi nahi janta.”
Shshank : “no no dr. arman,they know you.aap aur riddhima ke wedding ceremony me wo aaye the..”

Arman asked slowly : “par sir riddhima ko bura lagega..

Shshank : “I called her arman and explained everything and assured her ,I will come there as soon as possible.don’t worry ,wo kuch bura nahi manegi.aap abhi unko lekar nikal jaiye,already late ho chuka hai.”

Arman nodded and came home and saw dadi was already reached there.she was telling to sapna : “tu bhi chal na sapna,dekhna bahut achcha lagega.”

Sapna uttered excitedly : “I want to go dadi,waise bhi night duty se tired aur bore ho chuki hun mai…aur kal mera off hai..par agar sir bura maan gaye toh?”

Dadi : “arey,mai shsahnk ko kahungi mai lekar aayi hun..chal jaldi se ready ho ja. Aur ab toh arman aa gaya..chal jaldi kar.”

Sapna ran to her room getting ready. After sometime they left for lonavala. In car ,sapna was sitting beside arman where riddhima and dadi were in back seat. Arman saw through mirror,riddhima was lost in her own thought where dadi was blabbering constantly. After sometime ,they left the noisy Mumbai , highway and reached in valley area of lonavala…. arman was lost in the beautiful scene of roadside…the green meadows…the high peaks mountains…the deep narrow valleys…!!

he mumbled : “wow!its beautiful!

Sapna yelled happily : “bahi,thodi der yahan ruk jaye?”
Arman : “no way sappu..we are already late.”
Sapna pouted and uttered : “boring arman malik!”
Arman noticed,hearing it,riddhima smiled lightly but knowing that arman was seeing her through the mirror,she started staring outside the window . arman heard dadi’s voice : “beta ,yahan ke valleys bahut dangerous hai,aap gadi dheere chalao aur road ke taraf dhyan rakhna,kabhi bhi turn aa sakta hai.”

Arman understood dadi also noticed him to stare riddhima . he blushed and looked at the road nodding on dadi’s word.

Sometime all were silent ,suddenly sapna started singing in a harsh ,irritating voice…

Dekha Na Haay Re Socha Na Haay Re
Rakh Di Nishaane Pe Jaan La La La....
Kadmon Mein Tere Nikle Mera Dum
Hai Bas Yahi Armaan La La La....
Dekha Na Haay Re Socha Na Haay Re
Rakh Di Nishaane Pe Jaan La La La
Kadmon Mein Tere Nikle Mera Dum Hai Bas Yahi Armaan La La La..
Arre O O O .. Kuku Ku Kure
Dole Dole Aye Aye
Dole Dole Aye Aye dole dole aye aye .....

Arman uttered angrily : “shut up sapna! Yeh kya shore macha rakah hai? Chup reh.”

Dadi giggled while sapna uttered annoyedly : “mai gana ga rahi hun....aapne dekha nahi ‘Bombay to goa’ me amitabh bachchan uchal kudkar yahi ga raha tha?”

Arman uttered : “hum goa nahi,lonavala ja rahe hain. Tu agar chup nahi baithegi to yahi fenk kar chala jaunga tujhe.”

Sapna laughed out loudly and uttered : “ghatiya sa joke tha bhai,aap mujhe yahan akele chodkar jayenge toh mumma-papa aapko zinda jamin mein gaad denge.”

Arman smiled and uttered : “tu chup baithne ka kya legi?”
Sapna thought a while then uttered : “aap ek song sunao..
Arman : “never...aur tu ab chup baith.”
Dadi uttered : “suna de arman beta,sach me mai bhi bore ho rahi hun..hai na riddhima?”

Riddhima ,who was listening their talk,couldn’t understand what to say so nodded and uttered “aan......haan..

Sapna uttered jumping on her seat : “dekha bhai,sab aapse dukhi hain,ab to gana hi padega.”

Arman smiled and started humming....hmmmmm....

Dheere chalna hai mushkil to jaldi hi sahi
Aankhon ke kinaaro mein bahaane hi sahi
Hum chale baharon mein
Gungunati raahon mein
Dhadkane bhi tez hain
Ab kya karein....

Waqt hai toh jeene de
Dard hai to seene de
Khwahishein anjaan hai
Ab kya karein
Shabdon ke pahaadon pe likhi hai dastaan
Khwabon ke lifaafon mein chhupa hai raasta
Hum chale baharon mein
Gungunati raahon mein
Dhadkane bhi tez hain
Ab kya karein
O.. waqt hai toh jeene de
Dard hai to seene de
Khwahishein anjaan hai
Ab kya karein

Sapna waved hands and added her sweet voice ….
(Bengali Verse)
O.. aakash, o.. palash rashi rashi
Ektu sobuje chokh muchiye de…
Ghor chhara manusher mone
O.. jiya, O.. guzarte nazaare
Rang udaane de
Hum nashe mein hain
Bhool gaye sawaalon ko saare

Arman smiled and sang…..

Mehaki si hawaon mein chale hain hum kahin
Hum jo chaahe dil ko wo pata hai ya nahi
Hum chale baharon mein
Gungunati raahon mein
Dhadkane bhi tez hain
Ab kya karein
O.. waqt hai toh jeene de
Dard hai to seene de
Khwahishein anjaan hai
Ab kya karein

Sapna sang smilingly…..

O.. aakash, o.. palash rashi rashi
Ektu sobuje chokh muchiye de…
Ghor chhara manusher mone
O.. jiya, O.. guzarte nazaare
Rang udaane de
Hum nashe mein hain
Bhool gaye sawaalon ko saarey…

after they finished the song,Dadi asked : “sapna,yeh Bengali tu pahle se janti thi?”
Sapna turned to dadi and replied : “no dadi ji, maine aunty se sikha hai,means sumit bhaiya ki mumma se. hum hospital mein milte hain ,unka wahin duty hai na..aur jab mera aur unka off rehta hai,wo pahle se hi mujhe puch leti hai aur meri favourite dishes banati hai..hum dono khub baten karte hain.she is very sweet dadi ji.”

Riddhima shocked to hear it. After hospital meeting,she didn’t meet or talk with her but sapna met everyday. after sumit,his mom was alone but how riddhima forgot about her? She heard dadi was saying : “achcha hai beta, humein yahi to karna chahiye,par jab hum dukhi hote hain,sirf apne baarey mein sochte hain.”

Sapna uttered : “she is very strong lady dadiji. Maine unhen kabhi sad nahin dekha aur mujhe bahut pyar karti hai,kahti hai…sumit ne jane se pahle mera akelapan dur karne ke liye aap jaisi beti dekar gaya hai,mai dukhi hokar tujhe dukhi nahin karungi. By the way riddhima,aunty tumhare baarey mein puch rahi thi.”

Riddhima nodded only.arman wanted to stop that topic as he noticed riddhima’s sad face so he asked : “dadi ji,maine suna hai lonavala bahut khubsurat place hai.”

Dadi : “haan beta,ab aap aaye ho toh ghumkar jana. Mai bhi 2-3 din yahan rehna chahti hun,kyon riddhima?”

Riddhima nodded only. Dadi looked at the road and uttered : “bas beta,ye idhar jo chota sa rasta hai,usme se turn le lo,hum pahunch gaye hain.”
………………………

When they reached ,saw some people and children were stood to welcome them. They touched dadi’s feet and one aged person uttered : “aaiye damad ji..humara soubhagya hai ki aap padhare.”
Sapna giggled where arman blushed and uttered : “ji,mera naam arman malik hai,aap arman kahenge toh achcha lagega mujhe.”

That person replied : “thik hai damadji.”

Arman : “ji,mujhe arman kahiye.”

That person nodded and uttered : “samajh gaya damadji.”

Sapna laughed where arman frowned her and looked at riddhima through the corner of eyes,but relaxed seeing that she was busy with the kids of orphanage. They came inside and orphanage warden chitra aunty addressed to the children : “bachchon,chalo aap sab one by one arman bhaiya aur sapna di ko apna parichay do.”
a kid asked : “par yeh koun hain?
Chitra aunty uttered : “aap khud hi jakar puch lo unse.”
He came to arman and asked : “aap koun hain?”
Arman caressed his cheeks and replied : “mai dr. arman maliik aur ye dr. sapna malik hain..
That boy nodded and asked : “riddhima didi ke dost ho?”
Arman hesitated a bit then uttered : “yes..aap mujhe bhaiya kah sakte ho.”
Sapna : “aur mujhe didi.”
Other boy came asked : “aapko luka –chipi khelna aata hai?”
Arman uttered smilingly : “nahi,par mujhe basketball aata hai,aap sikhna chahoge?”
His face flashed with joy . he nodded and uttered : “aap hum sabko sikhaoge?”
Arman nodded .that boy asked again : “aapne didi ko sikhaya hai?”
Arman nodded in na but sapna uttered : “chote,tension mat le,mai sikha dungi teri didi ko.”
They became happy but sighed remembering that they had no ball or necessary things for basketball,but arman assured that he would buy all things tomorrow surely.
…………………..
after freshened up and having snacks ,when arman came to garden,saw riddhima was surrounded by those kids and they were requesting : “didi,chalo na chuppa chuppi khelein.”
Riddhima was refusing constantly. A 11-12 years girl uttered pouting : “please di,chalo na khelte hain,pahle kitna maza aata tha yaad hai?”
Riddhima uttered : “pinky,mood nahi hai bilkul bhi.”
Just then arman heard sapna’s voice : “chalo na riddhima,maza ayaega..mujhe to bachpan ki yaad aa gayi hai..
Riddhima : “par sapna…
Sapna uttered immediately : “yeh kids kitne khush hain na tumhe apne paas paakar. Please inke liye maan jao.”
Riddhima nodded and they started playing. A kid tied sapna’s eyes with a black cloth and asked waving his hand in front of sapna : “kitni ungliyan hain?”
Sapna uttered : “4..
Sonu : “haila,aapko to sab dikh raha hai!”
Sapna laughed and uttered : “aise bandhega toh dikhega hi na? buddhu kahin ka.”
Sonu came to riddhima and uttered : “aap bandh do didi.”
Riddhima nodded and tied it on sapna’s eyes. They started playing.arman was enjoying it from the behind of a tree where no one could see him.after sometimes sapna caught riddhima and her eyes were tied by the cloth. Arman saw everyone was touching riddhima and going away but she couldn’t catch anyone…suddenly sapna whispered something to the kids and they hid behind the bushes. Riddhima tried to guess where they are..and stepped one side.but arman eyes went and he shivered that this place was full slippery because of mud. He yelled : “riddhima! Sambhalkar! You are in mud..
Riddhima stopped hearing it and loosened the cloth immediately.sapna,came out from her hiding place and shouted : “kya bhai!aap riddhima ko bata rahe ho hum kahan chupe hain?”

Actually she didn’t hear arman’s warning. She came to riddhima in a hurry step and in a while slipped and fell on the mud. Her full body became muddy.the kids ,came out and seeing sapna,started laughing loudly. Sapna got angry,picked some mud and started throwing to the kids…the kids getting fun and all started throwing mud to each other. Arman saw riddhima was confused to go from which side to save herself from the mud game. Arman shouted to sapna to stop the game but instead it,sapna threw mud on arman and in a while arman was covered with mud. He shouted angrily : “sappu ki bachchi! Aaj tu nahi bach sakti!”

And ran to sapna but unfortunately he also slipped and rolled over the mud. he was going to blast on sapna but stopped hearing a pleasant sound of laughter…riddhima was laughing looking at him..he was mesmerized by her sweet ringing sound of laughter…his eyes stuck on her cheeks which became red tint because of laughter..she looked at arman and tried to control her laugh while keeping palm on her mouth…and ran from there making arman literally hypnotized!!

Love you all
Punam
