part 15 : Shikayat -season 2

'I m sorry Sir, humne bohot koshish ki...' Dr. Mehra said when she was surrounded by the Gupta's and Mallik's as soon as she came out after being with Riddhima for more than an hour...
Padma and Nikki stood staring at the doctor while Shashank and Karan face color drain hearing this... No one was in the condition to reply Dr. Mehra as they never was expecting something like this happen... Tears was falling from Padma and Nikki's eyes, while the gents try not to let their tears fall as Dr. Mehra gave them more information about Riddhima...
When Dr. Mehra left, Shashank look towards Padma while Karan look towards Nikki... Both were standing like statue, not knowing how they should be reacting to the news... Padma was shattered as she was the her mother while Nikki was broke as Riddhima is like a mother to her more than her sister in law...

Shashank put his hand around Padma shoulder, Padma who wasn't able to digest the news look towards her husband to make sure that she hasn't mishear what the doctor just said about her daughter... Seeing the moist eyes of Shashank, Padma couldn't hold herself for much time as she broke down in her husband arms...
Meanwhile, Karan just hugs Nikki closed to his heart as Nikki weep softly when the words finally reached the deepest part of her brain... Both gents look at each other as their eyes were moist due to the tears, if Padma and Nikki has the special bonding with Riddhima, even they too have their own bonding with that child...
It break their heart so badly that, they have no words left to be speak out to each other... They know that they can't break down because they have respective people to take care of in this hard time of life... So letting the tears fade inside their eyes, they just care the person who they were holding in their arms...
MALLIK MANSION
Armaan walk in to see Raina sitting in the hall, reading a magazine... Armaan knows that Karan and Nikki wouldn't be at home as it was weekend... Whole day Karan and Nikki would be spending in Gupta house, with Riddhima...
Riddhima, the name bring tears in his eyes but somehow he control it because he don't wish to show anyone that how he much weak he is when it comes to his Riddhima... It wasn't the first time that Armaan had let go off Riddhima and push her away from his life the sake of her happiness...
Only he didn't understand that, the separation wasn't only hurting her but he was living a new death every day not having Riddhima by his side... After his mother death, Armaan knows Riddhima had been the one who was taking care of his health...
Now when he has come over with the incident, his Riddhima was facing this horrible thing because he was sure that there is someone out there that who didn't wish to see them happy... Armaan get so much frustrated when it was taking time to get evidence about the person who is hell bend to destory his beautiful life...
Thinking about Riddhima and her health, Armaan move towards the stairs... Raina saw Armaan walking in but seeing him lost and not giving attention to her, she didn't like a bit of it... So keeping the magazine, Raina stood up hoping that not having anyone else in the house, she would get sometimes with her Ammy...
'Accha huva tum aagaye, main toh ghar mein bore ho rahi ti...' Raina said to get Armaan attention...
Nothing seems to be happening the way Raina wish, which make Raina anger boil seeing how much lost Armaan was thinking about Riddhima when she was nowhere closed to him... Still Riddhima has been occupied Armaan brain and it makes Raina wants to kill Riddhima with her bare hands for taking control over her Ammy...
'Ammy, main tumse baat kar raha hun...' Raina said controlling her anger...
This time Armaan stop hearing her words, he was too lost thinking about Riddhima that he didn't hear Raina speaking to him but this time, he clearly heard Raina voice... Anger started to build in him but somehow Armaan control it as he don't want to let Raina knows what he think about her...
'Ammy, tum mujhe ignore kyun kar rahe ho...' Raina asked as she turn Armaan around as he was standing near the stairs...
'Dekho Raina, maine pehle bhi tumse yeh baat clear kar chuka hun mujhe tum mein koi interest nehi hai... Aur aaj main ek baar phirse keh raha hun, mere liye tum baaki ladkiyon ke tarah ti jo mere saath ek collage mein padai ki...' Armaan said...
'Ammy, main jaanti hun lekin ismein meri kiya galati hai ki main tumse pyar karta hun... Dil mein toh kissi ka zorr nehi hote na, toh main kaise khud koh tumse pyar karne se rokhun...' Raina said...
'Please Raina, tum sach mein mujhse pyar karte hai toh mujhe apne biwi ke saath rehne doh... Kyunki pyar haasil karna nehi hote...' Armaan said...
'Ammy, tu aise kyun bol rahe ho... Meri pyar se tumhare relation mein kyun asar padd raha hai... Maine toh aisa kuch kiya bhi nehi jo tum mujhe yeh bol rahe ho... Main toh sirf kaam ke liye aayi hun yaha, aur apne dost ke saath tohda waqt bitana chahti hun... Us mein kiya galat hai Ammy, ki main apne dost ke saath kuch waqt rehna chahti hun...' Raina said...
Armaan just kept looking towards her not having a single trust on her words, he knows whatever she was saying wasn't truth because she wasn't like those girls who would move on letting the person she loves... Armaan has seen how her eyes turn dark whenever she sees a girl around him...
How can it was possible her to control her obsessive love towards him when Armaan very well understand that it can't be control easily if any person has this kind of emotions or feelings which is his/her obsession... Armaan was amaze that how calmly, Raina was still behaving with him...
'Waise, tum bura na maante toh ek baat puchun... Jabse main aayi hun, maine Riddhima koh nehi dekha... Aur maine tumhare aur Niks, I mean Nikki aur uncle ke beech tension mehsus kiya hai... Sab tik haina Ammy, I mean kuch huva hai kiya...???' Raina ask keeping her hand on his shoulder...
Armaan was short of words to see how much a good actress she was, he very well knows that Raina must be feeling very happy from inside to see that Riddhima wasn't about him... When she has come that time when he and Riddhima has come from their honeymoon, he has seen every single expression of her closely...
Armaan still can't digest the fact that Raina left them that time, but when Riddhima health started to get affect, the first person came in his mind was Raina... Not being in the house or country, Armaan still believe that Raina could do anything to be back in his life...
'Woh kuch din ke liye apne parents ke ghar gaye hai, aur koi tension nehi hai...' Armaan said...
'Chalo phir accha hai, waise hum dono akele hai toh main soch rahi ti kyun na hum lunch karne baahar chale...' Raina said smiling...
'Sorry lekin, mujhe bohot important kaam hai... Main bas kuch files lene aaya hun, aur tum bhi kaam ke liye aayi hona... I think tumhe jo bhi karne aaye ho, uspe focus karna chahiyeh...' Armaan said without any expression...
'Kiya yaar Ammy, aaj Sunday hai... Sunday ke din bhi tum kaam kar rahe ho...' Raina asked frowning...
'Important nehi hota toh mujhe karna nehi padte na... I m sure mere alava bhi tumhare friends hogi, why don't you catch up with them...' Armaan said...
'Ammy...' Before Raina could say anything, Armaan mobile started to ring...
Taking advantage of the situation, Armaan excuse and move up to his room... While going, he look towards Raina to see how she was controlling her anger seeing he didn't give attention to her which she wants... Armaan knew that Raina was just acting in front of him and it was soon proved as it clearly saw on her face...
BACK IN HOSPITAL
Karan and Shashank was looking inside the room where Riddhima was kept, Padma and Nikki was sitting on the chairs which was outside the room... They had stop crying but still tears were continuously falling from their eyes... No one has speak a word after Dr. Mehra left, they were too much hurt to utter a single word...
Minutes past and it has been an hour now, they were waiting for Dr. Mehra to come and let them know when the things get clear them to see Riddhima... Mean while, they were just outside the room and when it reminds them why they were here, it give an unknown pain to their heart...
'Karan...' Shashank call his name as he kept looking in to the room...
'Shashank, main jaanta hun tum kiya kehna chahte ho...' Karan said as his eyes were red due to controlling the tears from an hour...
'Karan, usse hak hai jaanne ka...' Shashank said...
'Jisne tumhare beti koh itni takleef di, tum usse yeh sab dekhne ke liye bhulana chahte ho...???'Karan ask looking towards Shashank...
'Jitni takleef mere beti koh huva, shayad usse kahin zyada takleef tumhare bete koh bhi huva hai Karan...' Shashank said...
'Matlab, kehna kiya chahte ho tum...???' Karan asked...
'Yehi ki, Riddhima koh Armaan se dur rehkar takleef huva hai toh Armaan koh bhi takleef huva hai usse dur rehkar... Shayad koi majboori hoga uska, jo woh kissi koh nehi bata sakte aur khud handle kar rahe ho...' Shashank said...
'Tumhe aisa kyun lagta hai Shashank, jo insaan ek mahine tak apne biwi se baat nehi ki, milne nehi...' Karan was cut by Shashank...
'Yeh sab humein dikhaya gaya hai, jab ki sach kuch aur hai...' Shashank said...
'Yeh tum kiya bol rahe ho Shashank, koansi sach ki baat kar rahe ho tum...' Karan asked...
'Armaan hum sabko dikhana chahta hai, usko Riddhima ki koi fikar nehi hai... Lekin kahin na kahin, usse shayad yeh pata hai jo bhi Riddhima ke saath ho raha hai woh koi jaan bhujkar kar raha hai...'Shashank said...
'Toh yeh baat woh jaante hai toh, usne Riddhima koh hum se, usse dur kyun kiya...???' Karan asked...
'For her sake or shayad Armaan yeh sochte hai ki jo bhi ho raha hai Riddhima ke saath, uske wajahse ho raha hai...' Shashank said...
'Woh kyun aisa sochenge...???' Karan asked...
'Yeh toh sirf Armaan hi bata sakte hai kiya chupa raha hai woh hum sabse, Riddhima se... Aur main issiliye keh raha hun kyunki maine aaj Armaan koh humhare ghar ke baahar dekha ta... Woh ghar ke baahar, apne biwi ki ek jhalak dekhne ke liye khada ta...' Shashank said...
Karan was surprise with this little information about Armaan, he has never thought what his son must have been going through... Karan has seen how much Armaan had been depended on Riddhima but seeing Riddhima pain, he has forgot his son pain who has once stay away from Riddhima because he don't want people to hurt her by words and he was doing the same once again...
Seeing Karan expression, Shashank very well understood that Karan wasn't aware of this little thing about Armaan... The tears he had been controlling all this time, started to fall from his eyes realizing how he has ignore his son emotions and feelings which he has hide behind that not so caring attitude...
Shashank felt bad for Karan, even he was feeling very much guilty to think about Armaan not loving and caring his daughter how much her daughter was crazy about her husband... Both look back in the room as again silent took around them, very few people were in the hospital as it was a weekend...
'Sir...' Their moment was disturb with Dr. Mehra...
'Dr. Mehra, can I see my daughter...???' Shashank asked...
'Our daughter...' Karan corrected Shashank making him and Dr. Mehra look towards him...
'Of course Sir, aap log dekh sakte hai... Sir, Dr. Riddhima married haina... I think aapko, uski husband koh bhula dena chahiyeh... Kuch formilities bhi pura karna hai so uske husband koh yaha hona zaruri hai...' Dr. Mehra said...
'Thank you Dr. Mehra...' Shashank said nodding his head, letting her know that he understood what she means...
'It's my duty Sir, please take care...' Dr. Mehra said, smiling a little...
When Dr. Mehra left, Shashank look back to Karan as he stood thinking about something... Some where, Shashank understood that what Karan must be thinking... To break the news to Armaan would be hard task because he couldn't take such news very well...
Being a doctor, Shashank understood that they shouldn't inform Armaan in the phone when he is alone... Also it was related to Riddhima, his wife whom he loves most after his mother... Till date, they haven't forget how much time it took Riddhima to make Armaan over come with the incident so there was no question that they can break the news just like that in the phone...
When Karan didn't make a move to call Armaan, Shashank thought to make him do it because it would be best for him to break the news to Armaan as they can't delay in telling Armaan about such a important thing related to Riddhima...
'Karan, waqt aagaya hai hum Armaan koh yaha bhulaye... Aur yeh kaam tumhe hi karna hoga, lekin yeh baat yaad rakhna Karan... Armaan koh aise news jaldi digest nehi hote, aisa na ho ki Riddhima ke baare mein sunke woh phirse apna hosh kho beite...' Shashank said...
'I know Shashank, mujhe bilkul samajh nehi aa raha main usse yaha kaise bhulaun... Woh hazaar sawal karenge aur main chaahkar bhi usse zyad waqt sach chupa nehi paunga...' Karan said...
'Hmm ek kaam karte hai, tum Armaan koh yaha paas cafe' mein bhulao... Kehdo use, humein usse zaruri baat karna hai... Phir hum dono usse sach bataenge...' Shashank said...
Karan nodded his head as he knows they had to do it, Shashank move to Padma and Nikki letting Karan call Armaan... As they weren't aware that now they can see Riddhima, Shashank went to tell them before he and Karan leave to meet Armaan, to tell the truth about Riddhima...
MALLIK MANSION
Armaan was sitting holding Riddhima and his photo frame, he was just staring at Riddhima photo as he wants to go and see Riddhima once more... Armaan didn't feel good as he couldn't see her for long as he has to left when he got a call from work...
Don't know why but he was feeling restless and he was wants to see Riddhima... Armaan knows he can't go in front of her but still it make him feel better to see a glimpse of her... Armaan feel it was very less time he get to see her every day...
Armaan didn't want anyone to see him, that is the reason he goes to see Riddhima making excuse of work... Truth was that, Armaan spend most of his time standing outside Gupta Mansion, just staring at his darling husband who had forgot to live her life...
Armaan was once again lost in Riddhima when his trace was broke with his mobile ringtone... Being not happy with the disturbance, Armaan check the caller and was surprise to see Karan name flashing on the display... Wondering why he must be calling him at this time and remembering that he has gone to Gupta Mansion to meet his Riddhima, Armaan answer the call in second ring...
'Ji Dad...' Armaan said in a desperate voice...
'Armaan...' Karan just whisper his name...
'Dad...???' Armaan call back, as he was getting a negative vibe...
'Mujhe tumse milna hai, kaha ho tum...???' Karan asked softly...
Armaan could feel that, Karan was very much disturb... As he has seen him in morning, he didn't see any tension on his face... Armaan wondered what must have suddenly happen that his father wants to meet him because neither him or Nikki like his present around them after the small argument they had a day or so before...
Armaan felt happy that, at least Karan was trying to talk him... Armaan feel guilty for hurting his family along with Riddhima, he knows it would take time them to forget him once they got to know why he did this, why he took such a decision, keeping a heavy rock on his heart...
'Armaan, busy hai toh bhi kuch waqt nikalo... Bohot zaruri baat karna hai tumse...' Karan said breaking Armaan trace...
'Main ghar par hun dad...' Armaan whisper not knowing what else to say...
'Kiya tum Sanjeevani Hospital ke paas jo cafe' hai waha aa sakte ho...???' Karan asked...
'Aap waha kiya kar rahe ho Dad, I mean aap toh weekend pe Riddhima se milne jaate ho na... Phir waha...' Armaan was cut by Karan...
'Kuch kaam se yaha aaya ta, yeh sab baatein chodo... Kiya tum aa sakte ho, nehi toh...' Karan was by Armaan this time...
'I m coming dad, I m coming...' Armaan said hurriedly as he don't want to make Karan wait...
Sensing that Karan was very disturb and sad about something, Armaan quickly move out from the room as he collect his car keys... Armaan look around the empty house as now Raina was nowhere to see, not thinking where she might be or had gone, Armaan run out from the house to reach the place where Karan was waiting for his son...
Armaan reach as quickly as he could, he move inside the cafe' searching for his father as his heartbeat got fast thinking what important thing Karan wants to tell him... It didn't take much time Armaan to spot Karan but he was surprise to see that Karan wasn't alone...
Wondering what both father's were doing together, Armaan slowly move towards them as he control his feeling trying his best to keep himself calm... Armaan don't want them to know how desparate he got to meet his father, after a month of being in not proper talking terms...
When Armaan move them, Karan and Shashank look towards him... Karan just kept looking towards him while Shashank stood up, giving a small smile to him... Armaan also gave a force smile but his eyes move back to Karan who has no expression or emotions in his face...
Seeing Karan pale expression, Armaan heart started to bang on his chest not knowing what was going to come on his way... Shashank also look towards Karan as Armaan eyes were focus on his father, Shashank understood that Karan was in such condition to break the news to his son...
'Armaan, woh humein Riddhima ke baare mein aapse kuch baat karni hai...' Shashank said...
'Riddhima ke baare mein...???' Armaan asked confusedly...
'Tumne jo bhi kiya...' Shashank was cut by Armaan...
'Riddhima ke liye kiya, aur isse zyada main aapko ya kissi aur koh kuch nehi bata sakte...' Armaan said...
'Hum jaante hai, lekin...' Shashank was again cut by Armaan...
'Papa, I know aapko Riddhima ki bohot fikar hai... Lekin main apna decision nehi badlunga, shayad yehi ek raasta hai Riddhima khud koshish kare tik hone ki...' Armaan said...
'Shayad phir bhi tum ek baar...' Shashank was stop by Armaan...
'Mujhe isbaare mein baat nehi karna...' Armaan said as he was himself dying to hold Riddhima in his arms...
All this time, Karan just sit looking towards Armaan... Shashank did his best to tell Armaan about Riddhima but Armaan didn't give a chance him to speak... When Karan didn't utter a single word, Armaan turn to leave thinking that Karan call him only because Shashank wants to meet him...
Feeling upset about it, Armaan took a step forward but was rooted on the spot hearing Karan voice... If anything which make him not move a step ahead than it was Riddhima name and it took sometimes for his brain to register the words which came out from Karan's mouth...
HOSPITAL
Padma and Nikki were crying softly looking at Riddhima, lifeless body... Riddhima eyes were closed and hands were kept fold on her stomach... They didn't move their eyes from her for a second the moment they had come to see her...
They didn't realized when Karan and Shashank left leaving both of them alone with Riddhima, their trace was broke hearing the sudden bang of the door... Both look towards the door and was surprise to see the person, who was standing looking towards Riddhima...
'Armaan...' Padma whisper his name...
Nikki just turn her gaze as she didn't wish to look at her brother as she believe that whatever happen to her sister in law, it was Armaan fault... Nikki was thinking that Armaan would soon bring her sister in law, who is like a mother to her back in home... Seeing the condition of Riddhima, Nikki knows it wouldn't be possible for him or either of them to do that now which make hatreds grow in her heart for her only brother...
Armaan who couldn't see anyone else other then his wife, just move inside with small steps... Only the breaths were heard in the silent room as Armaan ever so slowly move to the bed where Riddhima was laying... Armaan eyes were blur as tears were beaming seeing his lady love laying on the bed without any move...
The moment he stood just few feet's away from his Riddhima, tears started to fall from his eyes without any control... All these days, Armaan had been controlling those tears without letting it fall in front of anyone because he used to cry out his eyes when he is alone...
Armaan try his best not to let his pain visible to the people around him but today, it break in to such intention that it was clearly seen and feel by the people surround them... Armaan didn't think much about it as they were his family and when his life was laying there like that, how can he not let his pain out...
With Armaan, Karan and Shashank also move in as they move to the ladies... Shashank stood behind Padma, who was sitting on Riddhima left side... Nikki was standing not far from Riddhima as she move seeing Armaan walking towards Riddhima...
Nikki didn't look at Armaan but others was watching Armaan closely as it shows how much broken he was today, once again just like the time he get to know about his mother death... Forgetting their pain, they were just looking at Armaan, not knowing how he would take this news of Riddhima...
Along with silent, there was a fear in Karan, Shashank and Padma... Fear of not knowing how much the news of Riddhima would affect on his brain and of course his heart because Riddhima is his life, his world which he has built it once again after death of his mother... No one dare to speak or move from their spot as their eyes were fixed on Armaan who was just staring at his life, his Riddhima...
