Part 6 : it’s a love worth waiting for



Some days passed..riddhima was still staying in arman’s house. she wanted to go from there as she felt weird to stay there but she had no options to go .she started loving this house like her own house but she knew she had to go from there one day and imaging that day she felt to cry. Arman’s routine was as usual same..going hospital at morning and coming at evening, to talk a little to riddhima,to take dinner with her and to go to sleep.riddhima also didn’t want to talk much as she didn’t want to open up.she was ashmed what she did in past and now not wanted to involve arman in her life’s problem .



Arman knew she was getting bored whole day so one day he informed riddhima that he had a small library in his house and all type of books are there available , so she could use it to pass her time. Riddhima went there and started reading books and got that she started hating ‘love story’ books which once she loved so much. She was ditched by her love and understood those love dreams are only imagination. Slowly she started reading medical books and got that she actually liked them.she remembered in her house also this type a small library where her papa used to spend times after coming hospital. She remembered how papa hated her habit of reading love story books and always reminded her…”beta,aapko achche books padhne chahiye,jisse aapka knowledge padhe..yaad rakhiye,aapko sanjivani ka head banna hai …yahi mera sapna hai aur aapka bhi hona chahiye.”

Riddhima wiped her tears and mumbled…”sorry papa,maine aapke sare sapne tod diye..kabhi aapki baat nahi suni aur aaj mai aapko bhi kho chuki hun..kahan ho aap? Mujhe aapse mafi mangni hai papa..i miss you papa..’

Kaka entered in her room and seeing her sad face asked worriedly : “kya hua beta?aap ro rahi thi?”

Riddhima nodded in na while wiped her tears .kaka thought a while then asked slowly : “ghar ki yaad aa rahi hai?”

Riddhima wanted to reply but her voice choked.kaka heaved a long breathe and uttered : “mai janta hun aap bahut dukhi ho..par mai aapse nahi puchunga kyon..agar kabhi aapko batane ka dill karey toh batana.”

Riddhima kept quiet for sometime then uttered slowly : “kaka,aisa kyon hota hai ki hum samajh nahi paate humare kismat me kya hai..aage kya hone wala hai..agar aisa hota toh hum khud ko pahle hi sambhal lete na..jo bura honewala hai,usey hone hi nahi dete..

Kaka uttered in a consoling voice : “isey hi kismat kahte hain beta aur jab humare sath aisa hota hai toh hum yahi sochte hain ki aisa humare sath hi kyon..par aisa nahi hai..is duniya me jyada log dukhi hi hain..ab aap hi dekho ammy baba ko dekhkar pata chalega kya ki unke jivan me kya hua hai..

Riddhima jerked hearing it.she asked slowly : “kya hua unhein?”

Kaka uttered : “mai aapko bata raha hun beta par ammy baba ko pata na chalein warna usey bura lagega. Asal me 2 saal pahle unki shadi hui thi aur nayi dulhan shadi ke dusre raat kisike sath bhag gayi…

Riddhima gulped hard hearing it. Kaka continued… “mai tab yahan nahi tha..meri beti bahut beemar thi toh mai gaon(village) chala gaya tha. Ammy baba ne mujhe phone karke kaha tha ki kaka aap kab aayenge? Meri shadi honewali hai aur aap yahan nahi ho,bahut bura lag raha hai..usdin uske awaz me mujhe uski khushi ka pata chal raha tha…par mai nahi aa paya aur jab 3 mahine baad mai louta toh sab kuch khtam ho chuka tha…

Riddhima shievered and asked : “aapne usey nahi dekha?”

Kaka : “kise? Us ladki ko? Nahi beta..ananya bhabhi usse nafrat karti hai jisne uske bête ki zindagi barbaad ki isliye uska koi photo ya kuch is ghar me nahi hai..aur beta,aap hi batao,uski koi nishani koi rakhe hi kyon jo unki khushi ki duniya ko ujad de..

Riddhima nodded in yes and uttered in a wet voice : “aapne sahi kaha kaka,wo ladki isi layak hai,usey toh sabko nafrat hi karna chahiye…aapke ammy baba ko bhi.”

Kaka nodded and uttered in a sad voice : “haan beta,par ammy baba shayad abhi tak usey bhul nahi paya hai ..nahi toh kya ab tak uske liye kharide gaye sare saman usi tarah kyon rakha hai usne…

Riddhima asked confusingly : “maane?”

Kaka uttered : “jis room me aap abhi reh rahi hai wo ammy baba ne specially apne aur apni biwi ke liye banbaya tha..aapne dekha hoga na kitna khubsurat room hai..aur wahan kapde,make up ke saman..gahne(jewellery)..sab waisa hi rakha hai..jaisa 2 saal pahle kharidkar rakha gaya tha..us kamre ka chabi ammy baba ke paas hi rehta hai,wo wahan kisiko nahi jane deta par shayad ab wo us ladki ko bhulna chahta hai isliye toh aapko wahan rahne ko kaha…

Kaka was blabbering continuesly but riddhima was not able to heard more…she felt a terrible pain arose in her heart….kitni badkismat hai wo jo arman ko pehchan nahi payi aur itna pyar karnewale insaan ko itna dukh diya…yeh kapde uske hi the isliye toh uski favorite colour aur bilkul fit hai uspar…toh kya arman jaan bujhkar aisa kar raha hai ya wo chahta hai ki ab wo riddhima ko bhul jaye…haan yahi hoga..ab arman ko dr. nikita jaisi achchi ,pyar karnewali,usey samajhne wali ladki mil gayi hai,isliye ab wo apne life ke us hadse ko bhulna chahta hai…..

Her heart said her …. “tujhe yahan se jana hoga riddhima..par jane se pahle arman se mafi jarur mangna aur usey samjhne mat dena ki tu dukhi hai..par jo thode din tu yahan hai,usey achchi tarah ji le kyonki inhi yadon ke sahare tujhe sari jindagi nikalni padegi…
………………......................................
Now riddhima started helping kaka in kitchen as she was getting bored. She asked kaka about arman’s favourite dishes and learnt to cook them also. One day arman woke up late ..he saw it was 8 and he had to reach hospital at 9..he ran to freshen up and getting ready he came at dining room and addressed to kaka annoyedly : “kaka,aapko mujhe uthana tha,aap bhul gaye kya? Ab baki kaam kaise karunga?”

Kaka uttered smilingly : “beta,aapka kaam abhi sirf nashta karna hai..aap baith jao,mai serve karta hun.”

Arman uttered waving hands : “aapko majak sujh raha hai kaka? Abhi saare doggys ko bath karana hai,khilana hai,phir mujhe hospital jana hai..mai nahi karunga toh aap toh yeh sab nahi kar payenge..

Kaka uttered : “beta,riddhima beti ne wo sab kar diya..

Arman asked surprisingly : “kya!

Kaka nodded in yes and uttered smilingly : ‘riddhima ka aapke doggys se bahut dosti ho gayi hai,toh wo chupchap riddhima ka kaha maan gaye,aur ab riddhima beti ka banaya hua breakfast aapko khana padega beta warna wo aapse toh kuch nahi bolegi..par mujhe bahut sara dant pilayegi.”

Arman smiled on his words and asked : “aapki riddhima beti hai kahan abhi?”

Kaka replied smilingly : “idhar ka sara kaam khtam karke abhi mandir ki safayi kar rahi hai,keh rahi thi..dr. arman ki mummy jab aakar itna ganda dekhengi toh unhein achcha nahi lagega na …aur mandir hardam clean rehna chahiye ,hai na kaka…

Arman smiled hearing it.he nodded and uttered : “thank god!ab mumma ki dant nahi sunni padegi par kaka agar mumma puche kisne safayi ki aap mera naam lena..

Kaka laughed on his words and uttered : “achcha,toh aapko bhabhi se compliment chahiye?”

Arman uttered : “no kaka,wo baat nahi…actually mai aapko ek baat bata dena chahta hun..mumma ya papa ko pata nahi chalna chahiye yahan koi ladki unke absence me rehti thi.”

Kaka uttered : “samajh gaya beta..mai kuch nahi bataunga unhein.mai janta hun aap riddhima ki madad ke liye usey yahan laye hain par unko bura lagega jankar ki aap bina unse puche kisi ladki ko is tarah apne ghar me rahne diya.”

Arman uttered with a smile : “aap kafi samajhdar ho gaye ho kaka..
Kaka uttered smilingly : “dhanybaad beta.”

Then he made a sigh face and started servings breakfast to arman. Arman noticed it and asked worriedly : “kya hua kaka?”

Kaka nodded in na . but arman caught his hand and asked : “please kaka batao na,koi pareshani hai?”

Kaka uttered sighly : “nahi beta..bas yahi soch raha tha ki kash riddhima yahan reh pati!..bada moh ho gaya hai in kuch dino me is ladki se…

Arman kept quiet as he knew it was impossible. He finished his breakfast and came in the temple which was made in the middle of their garden.he saw riddhima was decorated the temple with garlands..she was standing on a small table and making a festoon on the main door of temple. Kaka was standing there and giving the things which riddhima needed....she was wearing a red silk sari with matching blouse..she tucked its pallu in her waist..arman’s eyes stuck on her slim waist where she wore a kardhani(belly chain)which was making her tempting.arman was mesmerized by her divine beauty..she was lifting the garlands with right hand,fixing them and forwarding left hand to kaka while saying…kaka kainchi (scissor) dijiye..

Kaka..coloured paper dijiye…

Kaka..tape dijiye…

Kaka..red mala dijiye…

Ribbon dijiye…

Kaka was about to say something seeing arman but arman gestured him to keep quiet and to go from there. kaka slipped from there silently.riddhima was arranging the garlands and coloured paper with full attention so she didn’t notice arman..she forwarded her hand without seeing that side and uttered… “kaka..colored ribbons dijiye please…

Arman picked the red colour ribbon and kept it riddhima’s hand .riddhima fixed it on the side of festoon and uttered irritatingly: “arey!aapko kaha na kaka ki red middle me dalenge..yahan yellow lagana hai….aap bhi na!”

Saying she looked at that side and seeing arman she was jerked and the table shook ..riddhima couldn’t keep her balance and fell on the ground…she shut her eyes in fear but in a while two strong arms grabbed her ..she made a clutch at his body while her sari’s pallu slipped and covered arman’s face …arman was totally dumbfounded on this situation where riddhima was totally unaware of it..she only kept close her eyes while holding tightly arman’s neck…arman trying to remove the pallu from his face by shaking head and his eyes stuck on riddhima’s perfect figure and flawless skin which was visible because of her transparent blouse…she was scared too much..arman could hear her heart beat which was beating loudly and with it her chest was going up and down rapidly…which was enough to snatch anyone’s sense…arman gulped hard and shifted his gaze from her and uttered slowly… “riddhima…tumhari sari..”

Riddhima opened her eyes hearing it and sensing the situation her face became red tint..she removed the pallu from his face,and covered herself and uttered : “please mujhe neeche utariye.”

Arman made her stand on the ground and uttered : “sorry..
Riddhima asked looking at the floor..”kisliye?”

Arman : “wo maine tumhe dara diya..tumhe kahin lagi toh nahi?

Riddhima nodded and asked slowly while keeping down her eyes : “aapko nahi lagi na?”

Arman nodded and uttered : “nahi..

They stood there like this for sometime then arman tried to change the situation..so uttered : “thanks riddhima ,breakfast was delicious aur yeh temple bhi bahut khubsurat lag raha hai..bhagwanji ka sara blessing ab tumhe hi milega ,unki itni seva jo kar rahi ho..warna mai toh puja –vuja kabhi karta hi nahi..

Riddhima uttered slowly : “kya sachmuch aisa hota hai?”
Arman asked : “kya? Blessing?”

Riddhima nodded in yes.

Arman uttered smilingly : “mujhe toh nahi pata par mumma hardam kehti hai ki sachche dill se bhagwan ki puja karo toh jo chaho milta hai..achcha,ab mai chalta hun otherwise I will be late..sham ko milta hun..bye.

Riddhima nodded slightly.

After arman going,she came in the temple and uttered folding hands in front of ganpati bappa… “mujhe aapki blessing chahiye bhagwan ji..mai janti hun maine galat kiya tha par meri ek galti toh aap maaf kar sakte ho na? kya aisa nahi ho sakta ki mai yahi rehkar whole life aapki seva karun..kya mai phir se usey nahi pa sakti jiske naam ka mangalsutra mere gale me hai? Aap toh sab kuch kar sakte hain bhagwan ji..kya mujhe aur ek mouka de sakte hain apni galti sudharne ka?

Love u all
punam
