part 1 : “It's a love worth waiting for….”


“If you should ever want to be set free
If you're not certain your future lies with me
I'll let you go girl until your heart is sure
It's a love worth waiting for

Now I won't stop you from leaving cause I know
The way to keep you would be to let you go
And I'm prepared to wait a thousand years or more
It's a love worth waiting for……”

Muskan off the song and uttered with an irritating face : “tu bilkul pagal hai arman…”
Arman,who was driving car,looked at her once then asked : “kyon?”
Muskan glared him and uttered : “I know you are still waiting for that stupid girl..”
Arman smiled little but didn’t answer.

Muskan uttered : “ab yeh mat kehna kis ladki ke liye..hum sab jante hain tu abhi bhi uska wait kar raha hai…aur yeh song tu baar baar sunta hai…but now time to move arman..2 saal beet gaye us incident ko par tu abhi tak usey bhul nahi paya..wo bewafa ladki ab tak 1 bachche ki ma ban chuki hogi..
Arman kept quiet.
Muskan again uttered : “achcha bata,agar wo apne us kamine pati ke sath mil gayi,uske god me ek baby ho ,toh tu kya kahega,kya puchega? I bet wo tujhe pehchanne se bhi inkaar kar degi.”
Arman uttered : “ho sakta hai wo mujhe nahi pehchane,par mai usey pehchan jaunga muskan aur mai bas itna puchunga….”tum khush ho na riddhima?”
Muskan made a sound like ‘huh’ then uttered : “tu pagal hai,duniya me aur koi ladki nahi hai kya jo ab tak uski yadon se chipka pada hai?”
Arman uttered in a serious tone : “no muskan,aisa nahi hai..par mera vivah jaise riste se viswas chala gaya hai aur sabse badi baat hai,humari shadi ho chuki thi,mai aaj bhi riddhima ko meri wife manta hun.”
Muskan uttered annoyedly : “aur jab apni patni ko kisi aur ki bahon me dekhega tu….
Arman cut her words and uttered : “muski,she loves him..aur agar wo uske sath khush hai toh mujhe koi problem nahi,par na jane kyon mujhe lagta hai she is not happy…2 saal se riddhima ko dhundh raha hun mai,aur us insaan ko bhi ,bas itna samajhne ke liye ki riddhima ki life perfect bani hai ya nahi par pata nahi dono kahan kho gaye hain…I am scared agar riddhima kisi musibat me ho…
Muskan smacked him on shoulder and uttered : “are you mad? wo dono ek dusre se pyar karte the toh khush hi honge na..aur tujhe bhul bhi gayi hogi riddhima.”
Arman asked : “toh bata wo mumbai loutkar kyon nahi aaye?”
Muskan thought a while and replied : “may be they were afraid..kyonki tujhse uski shadi ho chuki thi,proof hai tere paas,agar tu ya dr. shshank case kar de toh riddhima ko us insaan se alag hona padega aur wo aisa kabhi nahi chahegi…”
Arman mumbled….”shayad….
…………
Arman and muskan went in a camp for 2 days..it was around 500 km from Mumbai and today their camp was finished so they were returning home..it was a dark night and they were passing a valley when talking about some harsh truth which was messed arman’s life….arman looked at the dark,lonely road and lost in those memories which had destroyed him totally but now he was trying to overcome ,so always made busy himself in work but he couldn’t forget what happened in his life…..
………………..
3 years back
Sanjivani

All juniors were gathered in nurse station.they were waiting for their senior dr. arman malik who got the responsibility of giving duty to new interns. These interns joined here a few days back and dr. kirti alerted about them to dr. arman….”dr.arman,this new batch is horrible..Discipline naam ki koi cheez hi nahi unme,so take care and give them tough duty jisse wo jaldi ghar bhag nahi paye. And no hansi-majak with them okay?”
Arman nodded and made her face serious and came in nurse station where interns were busy in chatting.he cleared his voice and uttered....interns!”
Dr. Naina looked at him and mumbled..hayye!he is so handsome!
Dr. Priya whispered...and so hot!
Dr. Yuvi whispered while hitting playfully to naina....”you are mine only...”
Arman,who was listened their whispering, gave them an angry look and shouted ...”dr. naina,dr.priya and dr.mohit...cancer ward...
Dr. Soham and dr. Sunaina...warren ward...
Dr.yuvraj...go in colane ward...
Yuvi asked surprisingly...”sir,me only!
Arman uttered with an angry look..”yes! and your duty is from now to till 8 o’clock at night...
Yuvi uttered..”but sir...
Arman : “till 9 0’clock..
Naina whispered...”kuch bolega toh time badhta jayega..chup reh..
Yuvi looked at arman once and turned to go.arman smiled in heart and now his eyes went on the intern who was busy with her mobile...arman’s anger reached in top..he shouted angrily....”and you...what’s your name..dr...dr. riddhima..! how dare you to keep mobile with you!
That intern lifted her eyes and replied nervously while trying to hide her mobile... “yes sir!no sir..sorry sir..
Arman eyes met with her...and in a while he lost his voice....he never saw such a beautiful face..arman was totally lost himself in her beauty ..her tall frame ,slim body reminded arman of a Victoria model..her silky hairs, deep brown eyes...she is perfect..totally perfect...god made her in free time with a great attention....
“dr. Arman,dr. Kirti aapko apne cabin me bula rahe hain...”arman’s trance broke hearing lovely’s voice. He looked at the girl and uttered : “opd...”And turned to dr. Kirti’s cabin without looking at the girl but that girl already captured his mind .the whole day he remembered her and next day again he was in nurse station to give duty but that time he didn’t look at that girl . but after the interns going to their respective duty,he wished if he would see her or talk to her. Next day he gave her duty in children ward as his duty was there . but riddhima didn’t show any interest in him.she only obeyed him and then went stealing arman’s heart .
Days spent.week spent..months spent but arman was in same place .he was shy from nature so didn’t talk to that girl and he understood that girl also had not any interest in him like other interns naina,priya and suniana.those interns always tried to stay around him but riddhima is always missed in that group.one day when arman was sitting in the canteen,the intern group came and sat in corner seat and started chatting. After sometime naina turned and seeing arman,cam to him and uttered in a requesting tone : “sir,please join us. Today is dr. yuvi’s birthday.”
Arman stared at the corner table where yuvi was sitting,and uttered : “dr. naina,if it’s dr. yuvi’s birthday then he should ask me to join.”
Naina nodded and uttered : “sorry sir,actually wo idiot aapse bahut darta hai,aapne abhi tak usey tough duty diya hai na.actually hum sab dr. kirti se darte hain aur wo aapse.”
Naina’s words made him smile.
Naina yelled from there : “arey bewkoof!idhar aa aur sir ki favourite dishes order kar,phir dekhna sir kitne achche hain.”
Arman laughed on her words and joined their group. The interns called all seniors,dr.muskan,rahul,atul anjali and dr. nikita-abhimanyu there. they all celebrated yuvi’s birthday and arman warned him…. “no flirting here with your gf dr. naina,otherwise I will give toughest duty to you.”
Yuvi nodded like a good boy and all laughed. Suddenly muskan asked…”dr. naina,I think one intern is missing here..haan,dr. riddhima,where is she?”
Naina replied : “usey yeh sab pasand nahi ma’m.actually wo akele rehna jyada pasand karti hai.”
Rahul uttered : “last month her duty was with me..shayad hi maine usey baat karte suna hoga…jo bhi kahta tha,bas yes sir…no sir…”
Anjali uttered : “strange girl!humlogon se bhi kabhi baat nahi karti wo.but she is very sincere..aur humey bas yahi chahiye.”
Their topic closed that day but arman wanted to know more about riddhima.and one day when he got to know from dr. kirti that riddhima was the only one daughter of dr. shshank,who was the HOD of sanjivani,he was surprised as well as curious about her. After that he went for a training for 6 months and when he back,got to know that interns finished their internship(internship is always of 1 year) and went. He felt bad as missed everyone and specially riddhima. He couldn’t forget her for a minute even going away from her. She had captured his heart and mind fully.
………………………..
The best day of his life came when dr. shshank came his house with the proposal to marry his daughter. Arman felt that he was on cloud nine. His parents were also very happy and agreed immediately. When dr. shshank asked arman to talk to riddhima,he replied…”sir,mujhe usse kuch nahi puchna,I know her as she was intern in same place where I am,but if she wanted to know about me..i am ready to meet her.”
Shshank uttered : “no dr. arman,she also knows you.and she is very shy,aapne dekha hi hoga hospital me bhi kisise baat nahi karti thi wo.aapko isse koi problem toh nahi?”
Billy chuckled : “wife jitna kam baat karey utna hi achcha hai husband ke liye warna ananya ki tarah chapar chapar karey toh mere jaisa haal hoga arman ka,kyon ammy beta?”
Arman didn’t reply but annaya uttered frowning : “kuch toh sharam kijiye,apne hone wale samdhi ke samne aisi batein karte hue.”
Shshank uttered smilingly : “mr. balvinder..is umar tak patni sath nibhaye to mere khyal se wo log lucky hote hain,mujhe dekhiye..riddhima jab choti thi tabhi padma mujhe chod gayi aur riddhima bhi itna kam bolti hai ki suna suna ghar katne ko dourta hai.”
Annaya uttered : “koi nahi bhai sab,ab hum hain na,aur riddhima ko bhi mai bolna sikha dungi..”
……………………………….
Next month their wedding was fixed but arman became restless.he wanted to meet riddhima,wished to talk to her but he knew it was not possible so he waited for that day when riddhima would come in his house. ananya and billy went dr. shshank’s house sometimes to discuss about the wedding ceremony and felt weird about riddhima’s silence.they got to know that riddhima was a chirpy girl but after padma’s death ,she became like this.ananya uttered sighly : “beechari apni mumma se bahut pyar karti thi…par ab mai usey itna pyar dungi ki pahle jaisi ban jayegi.”

The day came when arman went riddhima’s house as a bridegroom to bring his love with him . when marriage ceremony started and riddhima came in bridal dress,arman gasped seeing his beautiful wife…he felt that he was the most lucky guy in this world…all rituals were completed and riddhima came their house. arman was waiting for the time when he would meet his newly bride but their friends didn’t want to leave him easily .ananya and billy was also very busy with the guests. Riddhima excused that she was very tired and wanted to rest so ananya took her in arman’s room and uttered : “arman ko aane me late hoga beta,aap rest karo.mai sabko keh deti hun ki aapko disturb na karey.”

Riddhima nodded and closed the door. when arman came at late night,surprised getting that door was locked from inside but when ananya said that riddhima was very tired and slept,he decided not to disturb her and went to other room to sleep.

Next day,His sleep broke hearing ananya’s horrified voice : “arman beta,jaldi uth,riddhima apne kamre me nahi hai.”
Hearing it arman jumped on his bed and moved down. They came in riddhima’s room,but riddhima was not there…she left the house only leaving a letter in arman’s name….

Arman,
Sorry…mai janti hun mai galat kar rahi hun,par mai yeh shadi nahi karna chahti thi,papa forced me. Mai kisi aur se pyar karti hun aur humne sath nibhane ki kasam khayi hai.. mai yeh baat tumhe batana chahti thi par papa ne apni kasam dekar meri juban band kar diya tha…aur ghar par, hospital me,har jagah unhone security appoint ki thi jisse mai kahin ja nahi paun, isliye mujhe yahan aakar yeh step lena pada…sorry again.
………………………………
Arman’s trance broke muskan’s angry voice : “riddhima ne jo kiya tumhare sath,galat tha hi,shshank sir ne bhi galat kiya tha yeh baat chupakar. You should ask him why he spoiled your life.

Arman uttered with a sad smile : “ I wanted to ask him but he didn’t gave me that chance …he got a heart attack..major attack aur mujhe tab riddhima ko bhulkar sir ke paas rehna pada. Par sir ke kahne par mere papa ne police me report kiya tha,they searched par riddhima toh gayab hi ho gayi thi.uske koi friends bhi nahi the jisse kuch pata chalta.”

Muskan kept quiet for sometime then asked : “how is dr. shshank now?”

Arman : “better..after that he left sanjivani and went his home town.unhone sari property mere naam likh diya hai but I don’t want them..ispar riddhima ka haq hai.”

Muskan uttered waving hands : “kahe ka haq? Jo beti apne papa ki zindagi barbad kar de,unke reputation ka bhi khyal na rakhe wo beti kahlane layak nahi arman.”

Arman : “haan,par muski,shyada hum is cheez ko apne najriye se dekh rahe hain kyonki riddhima ka side humey pata hi nahi. Unka pyar sachcha hoga shayad . I got to know that he was a business man and dr. shshank always wanted a doctor son in law. Par isme riddhima ki kya galti hai,pyar yeh sab toh nahi dekhta na.”

Muskan uttered irritatingly : “tu hi ek mahan insaan hai duniya me ,par agar mujhe riddhima mil gayi na toh uska gala daba dungi…usne apni khushi ke liye itne logon ko takleef di hai ,bhagwan karey wo kabhi khush na rahe..”

Arman uttered hurriedly : “don’t say this muski..please…

Suddenly muskan yelled : “arman!sambhalo!

Arman’s eyes went on the road,he saw someone was running to his car.he tried to control brake but in a while he hit that person badly,who had been thrown roadside. arman and muskan immediately moved down and came to that person,who was lying in the pool of blood. Arman saw it was a girl whose face was covered with his hairs.
Muskan uttered : “humey abhi isey hospital lekar jana padega arman.”
Arman nodded and picked her in his arm and made her lie on the back seat and uttered looking at muskan : “tu steering sambhal aur mujhe first aid box de jaldi se.i will try to stop her bleeding.”
Muskan gave him first aid box and switched on the light of the car and in a while her shocking voice made arman turn to that girl…. “arman…it’s riddhima!!”

Arman looked at her with a jerk and numb to see her in this situation. Muskan’s voice bring him into sense…”arman try to stop her bleeding,mai gadi sambhalti hun.”

Arman nodded and uttered in a teary voice…”its my fault muskan..par riddhima ko kuch nahi hona chahiye…humey jadli se hospital pahunchna hoga….”

Love you all
