part 3 : “It's a love worth waiting for….”


Some days passed after that but no one disturbed riddhima asking about her relatives. Riddhima felt relieved but she knew she had to leave the hospital cause now she is better than before . but whenever she remembered those memories ,felt that she was safe only in this hospital. She remembered that cursed day when she had left arman’s house and went with vivek. Vivek had already planned everything..they caught a flight and came Chennai and then by car in a village which was vivek’s home town. There vivek’s mother was lived.vivek uttered in a sweet voice : “riddhima jaan,yahan kuch din chupna padega.i know tumhare papa aur wo arman police me report toh karega.meri amma ke paas raho,phir hum shadi karenge.”


Riddhima uttered in a nervous tone : “vivek,tumne kaha tha papa humarai shadi maan lenge..aisa hoga na?”

Vivek uttered : “haan jarur..tumne filmon me nahi dekha,ladka-ladki ghar se bhag jate hain,phir parents newspapers me likhte hain….”bête,wapas aao,aap jise chahte hon,usise hum shadi denge…humey yeh rishta manjur hai..”

Riddhima uttered worriedly: “but you don’t know my papa,aise matters me wo bahut shakht hain.”

Vivek uttered pinching her cheek: “toh thik hai na,bas 1 saal me ek baby paida kar lenge aur tumhare papa ke paas le jayenge,phir dekhenge kaise nahi manta wo khdus buddha ..arey aisa bhi maine kisi film me dekha tha.”

Riddhima didn’t like vivek’s talking style. she loved and respected papa but that time she kept quiet. Vivek kept her there and went for some days. that lady took care of riddhima..riddhima liked her as she was very sweet. But Riddhima noticed sometimes when she was talking with her…seemed restless. One day she called riddhima in her room and closed the door and uttered : “beta,mai aapse kuch baat kahna chahti hun.”

Riddhima nodded and uttered : “ji aunty.”
She kept a photo in front of her and uttered : “my daughter…”
Riddhima uttered : “arey wah!bahut khubsurat hai.vivek ne kabhi bataya nahi mujhe.”

That lady uttered : “she died at the age of 18.”
Riddhima felt bad and uttered : “sorry aunty.”
That lasy suddenly asked : “vivek ko kab se janti ho tum?”
Riddhima thought a while then replied : “2-3 saal se.”

Lady nodded and uttered : “itne din toh kafi hote hain kisiko pahchanne ke liye..hai na?”

Riddhima didn’t understand what she wanted to say so she uttered : “haan aunty,aur vivek bahut achcha ladka hai…usne bataya ki wah apne business me struggle kar raha hai par ekdin wo surely bahut bada businessman banker apne papa ka sapna pura karega. Par mere papa ko business bilkul pasand nahi…actually vivek unse mila tha but he insulted him.”

That lady uttered : “tumhare papa ne uska insult kiya yeh baat jarur tumhe vivek ne bataya hoga?”

Riddhima nodded and asked : “kyon aunty?”

That lady didn’t reply her only uttered sighly : “meri beti…uska naam tha riddhi..uske papa ne rakha tha..bilkul tum jaisi pyari thi…hum bahut khush the,mai tab patna me rehti thi. Phir mere pati ki accident me mout ho gayi,riddhi tab 10 saal ki thi…mai 30 ki…2 saal yon hi beet gaye,phir mai vivek ke papa se pyar kar baithi…

Hearing it riddhima looked at her with a jerk. That lady continued…”humare society me vidhva –vivah(widow marriage) nahi hota,so bhag aayi uske sath aur phir uska asli chehra mere samne aaya..wah ek dalal (agent) tha..ladkiyon ko fuslakar lana,choti bachchiyon ko kidnap karna aur phir usey bech dena..yahi kaam tha uska.mai trapped ho gayi yahan..uske log harpal mujhpar nazar rakhte.usne kaha tha… “mai tujhse pyar karta hun so tujhe kuch nahi karunga par teri beti ke barey me soch le aur chupchap yahin reh.mere paas aur koi rasta nahi tha isliye yahin reh gayi par beti ko bahar boarding me bhej diya maine.vivek us aadmi ka pahli patni ka beta hai…”

Riddhima felt that she had lost her voice…she was horrified hearing it.aunty looked at her once and uttered in a teary voice : “maine apni beti ko kabhi ghar aane nahi diya tha. Maine usey itna hi bataya tha ki uske dusre papa pasand nahi karte .wah bhi vivek ke papa ko bilkul pasand nahi karti thi so kabhi zid nahi ki ,mai khud jakar usse mil aati thi. Par ekbaar mai bahut beemar padi tab wah ghar aayi aur 10-15 din ruki.aur hostel wapas jane ke baad mujhe uske suicide ki khabar mili…’

Aunty wiped her tears and uttered : “mujhe nahi pata kya hua tha uske sath..

Riddhiam uttered in a trembling voice : “toh kya aapke pati ne?...
She nodded and uttered : “nahi pata,vivek tab 15-16 saal ka tha..socha isey ek achcha insaan banaungi par wo bhi waisa hi nikla..”
Riddhima felt that the earth started spinning under her feet..she scremed in a horrified voice : “yeh aap kya keh rahi hai aunty?”
Aunty nodded and uttered : “maine tujhe jab dekha,beti yaad aa gayi aur laga tujhe mai marne nahi de sakti..bhag ja beti yahan se.”

Riddhima gasped hearing it ! she uttered in a shaken voice : “kaise aunty? Mai yahan kisiko nahi janti..kuch nahi janti..nahi aunty,aap jhuth keh rahe ho,vivek aisa nahi hai..wo aisa ghinouna kaam nahi karta..”

Aunty held riddhima’s hand and uttered : “apni life barbaad mat karo riddhima.mai tumhe is sabka proof toh nahi de sakti,par haan agar tumhe lage ki vivek aisa hai toh…”
Saying she gave some packet to riddhima and uttered : “kal vivek aa raha hai,tujhe le jane ke liye. Mai janti hun wah tera kya karega..pahle apni hawas pura karega aur phir bech dega. Agar tujhe mei baat sach lage toh normal rahne ki koshish karna,vivek ko apni baton me fansana aur is packet me jo hai,uske drinks me daal dena aur wo behosh ho jaye toh bhagne ki koshish karna,shayad tu bach jaye uske changul se.”

Riddhima gave her a bewildered look! Aunty kept a bundle of note on her hand and a paper than uttered : “ beti, apne papa ke paas chali jana, wo tujhe gale laga lenge aur haan yeh meri sister ka address hai,pahle wahan kuch din chupkar rehna,varna vivek tere papa ke paas pahunchne se pahle hi tujhe pakad lega.”

Riddhima nodded but felt that she forget to take breathe because of fear. She heard aunty’s voice : “riddhima beta,vivek ke samne normal rehna warna wo sab samajh jayega.”

Riddhima nodded with teary eyes.that night she slept beside aunty while holding her. Next day vivek came and uttered with an excited tone : “riddhima jaan..chalo sab kuch thik ho gaya. Get ready fast .hum kahin ja rahe hain.”

But Riddhima didn’t move from her place. Vivek gave her a suspect look and asked aunty : “isey kya hua amma?”
Aunty replied hurriedly : “usey papa ki yaad aa rahi hai beta,kal ro rahi thi.”
Vivek uttered dragging riddhima into arm : “ok darling..hum aapko aapke papa se milvayenge na…par pahle hum toh aapse mil le…”
Then he whispered : “jaan,ab se aapko mere siva kisi aur ki yaad nahi aayegi..
Riddhima felt uneasy and freed herself then uttered : “vivek,aunty ko bhi le chalo na.”
Vivek uttered laughing : “jarur darling..humari shadi kal hai,amma kal aayegi.aaj humey court me ek sign karna hai..chalo chalo..don’t be late.”
Riddhima looked at aunty helplessly and got up as vivek was constantly yelling from the driving seat. Aunty uttered in a loud voice : “bye riddhima,mai kal pahunch rahi hun wahan..”
But whispered : “jo kaha yaad rakhan beta..bhagwan tumhari raksha kare..”
……………………………………
They reached at Chennai and vivek took her in a luxury hotel.he addressed to riddhima : “mai thodi der me aat hun darling..tab tak tum rest karo.”

After going vivek,riddhima tried to open the door and got it locked from outside. She started sweating realizing her situation.she was trapped by vivek. She tried to use phone but it was dead. She thought to finish her life…tears started raining from her eyes . she sat there like a statue and wished if she could jump from the window but those windows are also locked. After crying a lot,she started thinking about her situation.aunty’s words echoed in her ears… “beta, normal rehna aur himmat jutana..”

She washed her face with cold water and sat on the bed quietly. after some time she saw vivek entered with waiter.the waiter kept foods on the table.vivek addressed him…”please hang ‘don’t distub’ board on the door.

Waiter nodded,looked once at riddhima and went. Vivek looked at riddhima and uttered : “sorry baby,kuch kaam tha..but now only you and me…”

Riddhima gulped hard and uttered : “vivek,tumne kaha tha court jana hai.”

Vivek laughed and uttered : “wo sab toh bahana tha..actually mai ab khudpar control nahi rakh sakta..bahut intzaar karvaya tumne jaan..”saying he came to riddhima and dragged her harshly. Riddhima felt that she would be unconscious ….she uttered trying to free herself : “its wrong vivek..tumne vada kiya tha hum shadi karenge..

Vivek grabbed her waist and uttered in a lustful voice : ‘shadi ki jarurat kya hai jaan,hum ek dusre se pyar karte hain…aur aaj ki raat mai tumhe khub pyar karna chahta hun…

Riddhima uttered while removing his hand from waist : “par yeh pyar nahi kuch aur hai vivek..mai ek indian ladki hun aur shadi se pahle in sab cheezon ko accept nahi kar sakti..”

Vivek burst into laughter then he uttered in a mocking voice : ‘indian ladki! Shadi jaise pavitr bandhan me viswas karti hai..hahahaha…jo suhagrat ko apne isi pavitr bandhan ko todkar apne ashiq ke sath bhag aati hai…hahahaha…

Riddhima felt that someone gave her a tight slap.she uttered in a teary voice : “mai tumse pyar karti hun vivek aur pyar pavitr hota hai..”

Vivek looked her tears and uttered waving hands : “ok darling..i know tum jaisi ladki bahut shy hoti hai..par thodi der me tumhari shyness chali jayegi..”

Riddhima’s eyes stretched seeing that vivek opened the bag and took out alchohal..she asked in a trembling voice : “tum sharab pite ho?”

Vivek uttered smilingly : “kya karun,tumhara nasha dur karne ke liye aaj isse kaam chalana padega..chalo huamre sath hone ki khushi celebrate karte hain.”

Saying he came to riddhima and picked her in arm and throw her on the bed and opened the bottle and uttered laughing : ‘bas kuch ghunt pee lo jaan,sari sharam chali jayegi.”
Riddhima felt a pain arose in her back and understood she was in the trap of an animal..vivek’s lustful eyes staring her body like she was a prey of him whom he hunted. But aunty’s words again echoed in her ears…”agar tumhe lage ki maine jo kaha sach hai,darna mat aur bhagne ko koshish karna beti.”
She sat on the bed and uttered in a trembling voice : ‘mai khud pee lungi vivek please don’t force me.par pahle mai kuch kha lun..i am hungry.”

Vivek laughed and uttered happily : “ok baby, I am happy ki tum samajh gayi ..”

Saying he poured his glass with beer and gulped in one breathe. Riddhima saw his eyes became red like a beast. She uttered : “tum baitho vivek,mai drinks bana deti hun..”
Vivek uttered happily : “yeh hui na baat..i love you jaan..”
Riddhima saw he took out mobile and started talking with someone.she made his drink and gave him.vivek drank it and uttered rubbing his cheek with her : “tumhari hathon me toh jadu hai.”

Riddhima felt to puke. Now she hated his touch. Vivek sat on the bed and in a while he dumped on it and got unconscious. Riddhima came to him slowly and getting him unconscious, took her bag ,opened the door with trembling hands and came out.she got no one was in the corridor. she locked the door and ran to the outside. She was free and now she had to go away from this animal..she took a taxi and said : “station..”
……………………………………………….
She went to aunty’s sister’s house and hid there. From there she tried to call papa but she got his phone is switched off. After 2 months she took permission to go home and came in Mumbai but when she came to her house,got it was locked. No one was there except a watchman ,who said her that dr. shashank had sold this house and went somewhere.

Riddhima didn’t understand where to go as she didn’t know anyone. She couldn’t go sanjivani as she was not able to face arman or anyone so she thought to return to that lady who had assured her when she was coming : “beta,agar wahan koi bhi problem ho,wapas aa jana,yahan mere paas.”

But she was caught by vivek’s men and had taken in vivek’s house. now she saw the original face of that person who slapped her hard,kicked her and growled : “ ab tu vivek ka asli chehra dekhegi…aaj se tera khana pina band aur thik 3 din baad tera customer aayega aur tujhe le jayega.tab tak apne bahgwan ko yaad kar le.”

He tied her hands and legs and shut her mouth with a tape and went. Riddhima understood now she had no chance to escape. She wished if she could finish her life ...2 days she was lying in that dark,lonely room like a lifeless person but 3rd day,she heard someone’s voice : “riddhima beti..riddhi…beti jaldi uth.”
She opened eyes and saw aunty was there. she started crying seeing her. Aunty loosened her rope and uttered : “beti,aaj vivek nahi hai..bhag yahan se beti.bhag ja..”
Riddhima tried to stand but unable. Aunty gave support to her and took her out where a van was standing. She made her sit on it and uttered : “mere sister ka beta hai ,tu iske sath safe hai beta.”
Riddhiam uttered in a trembling voice : “par vivek ko pata chal jayega aapne mujhe…
She cut by aunty.. “janti hun beti,wo mujhe zinda nahi chodega par tu bach jayegi toh mujhe lagega maine apni riddhi ko bacha liya..ja beti.”
………………………..
Riddhima remembered that guy,whose name is rishabh took her back in aunty’s sister house and uttered : “mai banglore me rehta hun aur janta hun itna kuch hone ke baad ab wo vivek meri mumma ka address dhundh hi lega isliye mai unko yahan se lekar ja raha hun.”

Riddhima understood that guy went there to save her on aunty’s call but now he didn’t want to take risk keeping her with them . but rishabh’s mumma scolded him and uttered : “beta,is haalat me wo kahan jayegi,humare sath le chal,bas thodi thik ho jaye to wo chali jayegi.”

Riddhima stayed with them for one month then she told lie to aunty that she talked with papa and now going back home and went from there. after that she was roaming here and there to save herself from vivek but now she understood, it was not easy cause vivek appointed his men each and every place to find her and he would surely find her and imagining about the day when she would be in front of vivek again,she started shievering in fear . she felt thirsty so took the glass of water and drank the whole.suddenly her eyes went on a small packet.she picked it curiously and saw her manglasutr was in that packet and a note with it.

Riddhima,
sorry,jab tum behosh hokar gir padi thi,mangalsutr ke moti (pearl) tutkar bikhar gaye the..mai janta hun ek married ladki ke liye uska mangalsutr priceless hota hai. Maine isey thik karva diya hai.
Arman

Riddhima took out mangalsutr and uttered in a wet voice : “thank you arman,bas yahi toh hai mere paas tumhari nishani.”

She remembered how vivek had snatched this mangalsutr from her neck and had thrown it saying : “ye..us kamine ka mangalsutr hi tujhe mujhse alag kiya hai..ab iska koi kaam nahi hai,tu married nahi ,kunwari hai…ekdam fresh …hahahaha..”

But when she was coming from there,aunty gave her mangalsutr and uttered : “beta,ye kabhi gale se mat utarna..aur ho sake toh us insaan ke paas lout jana. Shayad wo tere sath achcha behavior na karey par tu uske pair pakad legi toh maaf kar dega..”
Riddhima asked in a teary voice : “yeh..aapke paas?
Aunty nodded and uttered : “maine sambhalkar rakh diya tha beti.”
………….......................................................................

Riddhima put the mangalsutr and mumbled : “nahi aunty,usey toh pata bhi nahi yeh mangalsutr uski nishani hai…aur usne kaha hai..past is past…wo apni duniya me khush hai aur mujhe bhul chuka hai..aur usey shayad apna pyar mil chuka hai..

She remembered,yesterday when she was standing in the balcony and looking at arman,who was standing in the open place of hospital and was busy to read a file,didn’t notice riddhima…just then a beautiful girl came without making noise and closed arman’s eyes from back. Arman smiled and caressed her hands and uttered something.that girl laughed and hugged him while leaving his eyes. Arman also hugged her and then that girl started blabbering while arman was listening her attentively.then they went from there while holding hands. They were stood far from riddhima so she couldn’t hear their talk.

Riddhima tried to remember who was that girl but couldn’t but her heart broke into pieces thinking that surely she was arman’s love . riddhima knew arman liked her from the first day of her internship but that time she ignored him and then betrayed so she had no right to think about him.

Riddhima sighed and decided to go from there. she didn’t want to give trouble to anyone and knew if arman would get to know about vivek,he wouldn’t let her go and he can be in danger and she didn’t want to destroy his beautiful life…

She came out without making noise and saw only the attender was sleeping keeping his head on the table. She slipped from there silently and stepped to the main gate…..

Love u all
punam
