Part 8 : “it’s a love worth waiting for…


Arman nodded and uttered : “of course but I knew it…I knew from that day when I had taken it to repair……
All looked at him surprisingly. Muskan uttered in a shocking voice : “hein!tujhe kaise pata chala? I mean mangal sutr toh ek jaise bhi hote hain..aur agar pata chala toh is tarah riddhima se anjaan banker kyon rehta hai?”
Arman uttered looking at muskan : “yes muski,mangal sutr ek jaise hote hain par mere pahnaye hue mangal sutr kuch different hai. kya hai,wo mai pahle riddhima ko bataunga..and about your second question… “main sach me nahi janta ki wo kisliye mangalsutr nikal nahi payi..kya wo sachmuch mujhse pyar karti hai ya ek Indian girl hone ke wajah se wo is rishte ko tod nahi payi… isliye mai chahta tha riddhima khud is baat ko Kabul karey..is baar mai aage nahi badhna chahta tha,chata tha wo aage badhkar mujhe swikar karey.”
Rahul uttered : “tu shayad isliye usey apne ghar le gaya tha na?”

Arman : “nahi aisa nahi hai..mai nahi chahta tha ki usey le jaun kyonki mai kamjor pad jata uske samne par jab muskan ne mana kiya toh mujhe le jana pada. Aur kuch din me mujhe samajh aa gaya she wanted to stay there…but she was hesitating to tell me..shayad dheere dheere wo normal ho jati aur sab kuch bata deti ..par papa mumma achanak se wapas aa gaye .”
Anjali uttered smilingly : “ ab to tujhe sab pata chal gaya hai and hopefully usne muski ke samne agree bhi kiya hoga ki she loves you.”
Arman uttered : “don’t know anjali..yeh toh muskan hi bata sakti hai ki riddhima ne kya kaha.”
Muskan uttered : “no,she didn’t accept she loves you..”
Atul got up in excitement and uttered : “hein!means baat wahin ki wahin reh gayi! Riddhima arman se pyar nahi karti hai? Toh phir wo mangalsutr..yeh kya matter hai?”
Muskan uttered smilingly : “shant baalak! Riddhima arman ko kyon kuch nahi bata rahi,I got that reason..actually she herself told us.”
Arman uttered hurriedly : “kyon muskan?”
Muskan : “I asked her…tum arman se pyar karti ho? Its proved tum usey apna husband manti ho,toh kya tum uske sath whole life rehna chahogi?”
Rahul asked eagerly : “kya kaha usne?”
Muskan uttered in a calm voice : “I told you before ,she is a dumbo. in my question ,she kept quiet for sometime then said… “mai aisa kaise soch sakti hun? Mai janti hun arman apne life me move kar chuke hain..mai bas itna chahti hun wo dr. nikita ma’m ke sath khush rahein..”
Anjali-atul-rahul uttered together : “hein!yeh niki kahan se aayi beech me?”
Muskan laughed and uttered : “that dumbo girl thought niki is fiancé of arman..she had a ring on which written ‘A’..riddhima ko lagta hai wo ‘A’ arman hai jisne nikki ko ring pehnaya hai..
All hold their head and uttered : “OMG!”
But hearing nikki’s name,abhimanyu,who was getting bored and trying to take a nap..suddenly yelled : “kya!arman ne nikki ko ring pehnaya!yeh kya keh rahi hai muskan!”
Arman glared him angrily where all giggled hearing it.
Abhimanyu stared them angrily and uttered looking at arman : “dost dost na raha..pyar pyar na raha..zindagi humey tera aitbaar na raha….yeh kya kar diya tumne arman!i hate you!mai kuch din nikki ko tere bharose chodkar gaya toh tune meri fiancé par hi hath maar diya!”
arman uttered angrily : “sadme se baahar aa jao dr. abhi..aur yeh sangam movie kitni baar dekha hai aapne jo uske dialogues marey ja rahe hain? Nikki is always yours..
abhimanyu uttered annoyedly : “par mujhe kyon sunayi diya ki tumne..
muskan smacked on his back and uttered : “ullu ki tarah raat bhar jaagkar abhi need me kuch bhi bole ja raha hai..sun pahle thik se..
rahul requested…”muski please continue..
muskan : “haan toh riddhima sochti hai ki arman nikki ke sath apni life mein aage badh chuka hai,isliye wah kuch bol nahi pa rahi hai.”
Rahul : “toh tune bataya usey?”
Muskan uttered laughing : “no,actually nikki batana chahti thi,maine usey ishara kiya ki na bataye..”
Anjali : “poor girl!beechari ko kyon takleef de rahi hai muskan? Ab bata bhi de usey. Kya kahte ho arman?”
Arman uttered smilingly : “muskan ne thik kiya ..mai chahta hun mai yeh baat bataun usey,mai uska expression dekhna chahta hun.”
Meanwhile abhimanyu called nikki and asked about it. Muskan saw nikki is calling her. She picked the mobile and asked : “kya hua nikki?”
Nikki : “arey yaar!yeh abhimanyu itne gusse me kyon hai? Puch raha tha arman ke sath kya chakkar hai mera.”
Muskan laughed and uttered : “beechara raat bhar jagkar need me kuch bura sapna dekha hoga.anyways,riddhima thik hai na?”
Nikki uttered : “haan par dari hui hai,keh rahi thi usey kuch log follow kar rahe the mall me.”
Muskan uttered : “don’t worry,aate waqt hum aise raste se ghumkar aaye,wo samajh nahi payenge hum kahan rahte hain.”
Nikki uttered : “sun,tu aate waqt kuch fruits lekar aana,aaj riddhima ka fast hai.”
Muskan asked : “kis khushi me usne fast rakha hai?”
Nikki : “shayad karva chouth aisa kuch bata rahi thi..”
Muskan asked : “yeh karva chouth kya hota hai?”
Nikki replied : “don’t know aur maine pucha bhi nahi..waise bhi wo jyada baat karna pasand nahi karti,u know na.”
Muskan nodded and kept the phone. Anjali uttered : “karva chouth apne husband ke liye rakhte hain muski.”
Muski chukled…”really arman,yeh riddhima badi azeeb hai..you know usey lagta hai tum aur nikki sath ho phir bhi tumhare liye vrat rakhi hai..typical Indian girl.”
Arman smiled and uttered : “mai chalta hun..meri duty 12 baze se hai…evening ko aaunga tere yahan.”
Muskan teased… “ kisse milne?”
Arman replied with a smile : “apni wife se milne..”
Muskan’s mouth opened in a big ‘O’ where rahul whistled hearing the smart reply from arman and all laughed hearing it.
…………………………………………….
Riddhima looked at the door hearing nikki’s voice : “come arman,achcha hua tum aa gaye.”
Arman smiled and asked sitting on the coach : “how are you?”
Nikki : “fine,but I have to go on duty. These night duties are such a boring job..i hate it …”
Riddhima got up to go from there but nikki stopped her while holding her hand and asked : “tu kahan chali?”
Riddhima uttered slowly : “wo bas..aunty bula rahi thi..
Nikki uttered smilingly : “aunty ko toh tujhe dekhte hi kaam sujhta hai,riddhima yeh kar de..wo kar de..par aaj tu nahi jayegi..arey,fast rakha hai tune,subah se kuch khaya nahi,yaad nahi hai kya?”
Arman asked (like he didn’t know about riddhima’s fast) : “achcha! Tumne fast rakha hai?par kyon?”
Before nikki could say ,riddhima replied hurriedly : “wo bas..aise hi.”
Arman nodded : “oh,okay.” And made his face like he was not interested about it.
Nikki tried to hide her smile and uttered : “arman,tum aaye toh achcha hua,riddhima ne fast rakha hai toh temple jana chahiye ,puja ke liye but muski is tired and I have to go sanjivani ..toh please tum le jao na.”
Riddhima tried to oppose but arman uttered : “haan,thik hai.. achcha hai mai aur riddhima sath me thoda time spend kar lenge..
Riddhima looked at arman surprisingly hearing it but nikki uttered smacking him : “time spend karne ko nahi kaha hai,mandir le ja .”
Arman nodded like a good boy and addressed riddhima : “mai car me hun,jaldi ready hokar aa jao riddhima.”
Saying it he went from there without giving a chance to say anything to riddhima. Riddhima hesitated first but then she got ready and came out. Arman opened the front door and gestured her to sit there. riddhima looked at the balcony and saw the girls,who lived in that house,were looking at them from their balcony. She felt shy to sit in front seat and sat in the back. Arman smiled seeing her shyness and uttered: “kis mandir me jana hai riddhima?”
Riddhima uttered slowly : “koi bhi mandir..
She thought in heart.. “vrat toh maine tumhare liye rakha hai arman aur tumhe dekh liya,mera vrat pura ho gaya.”
They came in a devi mandir.riddhima went inside but arman stayed outside of the temple. Riddhima came and uttered : “agar problem na ho toh ander aaiye.mandir aakar bhagwan ka darshan na karna thik nahi.”
Arman nodded and came inside, stood there for sometime then came out. After finishing puja,riddhima came out,distributed Prasad to the children,who were playing there,then came where arman was waiting for her. She gave Prasad to arman and uttered : “chalein?”
Arman took a small piece of the Prasad and offered the rest part to riddhima. Riddhima shyed but took it and ate. Arman took out a bottle from car and uttered giving it to riddhima : “Prasad ke baad pani peena chahiye.”
Riddhima nodded and took the bottle. She felt that arman knew the rule of this fast ‘karva chouth’..to take food and water from husband..but her heart warned her… “aise sapne mat dekh ,arman ko yeh sab kaise pata hoga,jab dr. nikita ya dr. muskan ko hi pata nahi.aur arman ab dr. nikita ka hai,tera kabhi nahi ho sakta.”
She heard arman was saying : “subah se kuch khaya nahi hoga toh chalo aaj meri favourite pure veg. restaurant me le chalta hun.”
………………………..
When they finished their dinner in the restaurant and came out,saw drizzling was started.they sat in the car and arman uttered : “chalo aaj mai tumhe ek khubsurat jagah le chalta hun.”
When he stopped his car at juhu beach,riddhima uttered : “yeh toh juhu beach hai,mai bahut baar aa chuki hun yahan.mai,papa aur mumma weekend ko aate the yahan.”
Arman uttered smilingly : “par kabhi barish me tumne juhu beach ko dekha hai?its amazing!aur bheed bhi nahi rehti..log barish se darker nahi aate. Come..”
They started walking on the sand…after sometime they reached in a place where rocks were scattered all around.arman sat on a rock and uttered : “yeh meri favourite place hai..jab bhi mera dill gabrata hai..kisi baat ki tension ya dukh hota hai,I come here..”
Riddhima wanted to sit beside arman but hesitated and walked to the seashore. She looked at the sea and felt that her life was like the vast sea which was flowing without any purpose. She heaved a sigh secreatly and stared at the sea. She didn’t know how long she was stood there like this.Her trance broke hearing arman’s voice : “kiske liye vrat rakha tha tumne riddhima?”
She shievered hearing it and started stammering…”wo..mai..wo…
Arman uttered : “kya mai us insaan ka naam jaan sakta hun,jisse tum itna pyar karti ho ki uske liye subah se pani tak nahi piya..tell me riddhima..”
Riddhima gulped hard hearing it.her eyes started raining..she saw arman was standing in front of her. She uttered in her cry…”please arman..
Arman hold her from shoulders and asked in an serious tone: “kyon riddhima? Kyon tum aisa kar rahi ho? Kyon tumne us mangalsutr ko 2 saal se apne sath rakha,jis bandhan ko tumne khud toda tha…kyon tum uske liye vrat rakhti ho,jise kabhi apnaya hi nahi..
Riddhima hid her face into palm and started sobbing but arman uttered in a determined voice : “aaj tumhe iska jawab dena hi padega riddhima…kyon tum confess nahi karti ki tum mujhse pyar karne lagi ho..tumne us rishte ko apnaya nahi tha jisse tumhe forcefully bandha gaya tha..par us rishte ko tod bhi nahi payi thi tum…
Riddhima uttered in her sob : “I got scared arman…mai darti hun…mai janti hun tum mujhse nafrat karte ho..shayad ..aur yahi sahi hai arman..jisne tumhari zindagi barbaad ki usse nafrat karna lazmi hai….
Arman uttered in a wet voice : “kaise usse nafrat karun jo mera pahla pyar tha..kaise usse nafrat karun riddhima jiske gale me maine mere pyar ka mangalsutr pehnaya tha…
Suddenly riddhima knelt down and touched arman’s feet and uttered in her cry…. “ mujhe maaf kar do arman…mai bahut buri hun,mai tumhare laayak nahi hun par vada karti hun ab tumhare life me kabhi nahi aungi,bas tumhare pyar ke sahare ji lungi mai..tum bahut achche ho arman and you deserve best not a girl like me…
Arman made her stand holding her and uttered smilingly : “aur mere liye the best koun hai yeh bhi bata do.”
Riddhima wiped her tears and uttered : “dr. nikita..she is the best..
Arman laughed and asked : “aur uske fiancé abhimanyu ka kya hoga,whose ring is in her finger.”
Riddhima looked at him with a jerk and asked in a shocking voice : “kya!
Arman nodded and uttered : “she is my best friend..par mere liye toh best girl wahi hai jo mere liye vrat rakhti hai…jisne mere naam ka mangalsutr pehna hai..
Riddhima blushed hearing it. She started looking at the ground. Arman cupped her face and whispered… “maine sahi kaha na?”
Riddhima closed her eyes and whispered like a breathe…”mujhe nahi pata..
Arman looked at her red tint face..and pinky lips which were trembling of fear or shyness or cold ..her silky hairs were scattered all over her face…arman whispered…”ankhen kholo riddhima..tumhare samne wo khada hai jo tumhe is duniya me sabse jyada pyar karta hai…”
But riddhima nodded in na and uttered slowly : “dar lagta hai kahin yeh sapna na ho…
Suddenly the clouds roared loudly and started raining heavily…riddhima got scared and hugged arman tightly.arman laughed and uttered in a mischievous tone : “ab samajh gaya hun yeh baadal itni jor se kyon garajta hai…
Riddhima asked : “kyon?”
Arman dragged her into arm and uttered in a mischievous tone… “mujh jaise baichen ashiq ke liye…”
Riddhima blushed hard and separated herself from him immediately. Arman lifted her chin with his index finger and asked naughtily : “ab toh bata do mai tumhara koun hun?”
Riddhima looked at him and uttered in a soft voice : “tum mere bhagwan ho.”
Arman made face and uttered: “no..
Riddhima smiled and uttered : “ tum mere arman ho..mere dill ka arman…
Arman nodded head and uttered smilingly: “not bad…..
They stood in rain like this for some time then arman opened his arm towards riddhima and welcomed her through eyes but riddhima shyed and bent her head .arman smiled and uttered : “okay..ab mai bataun tum meri kya ho..
Riddhima nodded in yes. Arman caught her hand and uttered pointing to the sea…. “yeh samandar (sea) itna khubsurat kyon lagta hai tumhe pata hai riddhima?”
Riddhima gave him a question look.arman uttered : “kyonki isme yeh badi badi lahrein (waves) hai,jo isey khubsurat banati hai…tum bhi wahi ho riddhima…mai toh bas pani ka ek dariya (river) hun aur tum meri lahrein ho…jiske bina mai sirf pani hun aur kuch nahi…meri zindagi me tum wo lahrein ho jo meri zindagi me khushiyon ke rang bharne ke liye aayi ho…aisa hoga na riddhima?”


Riddhima nodded and hugged him tightly….arman dragged her into his arm and hummed…..
Jo tere sung laagi preet mohe
Rooh baar baar tera naam le
Ki rab se hai maangi yehi dua
Tu hathon ki lakeerein thaam le.
Riddhima separated her from arman’s arm and hummed ………….

Chup hain baatein
Dil kaise bayan main karun
Tu hi kehde woh jo
Baat main keh na sakun


Arman opened his arm and gestured her to come there and sang…
Ki sang tere paniyon sa
Paaniyon sa, paniyon sa behta rahun
Tu sunti rahe main kahaniyan sa kehta rahun
Ki sang tere baadlon sa
Baadlon sa, baadlon sa udta rahun
Tere ek ishare pe teri ore mudta rahun

Riddhima sang looking at him……

Aaadhi zamin, aadha aasmaan tha
Aadhi manzilein, aadha raasta tha
Ek tere aane se mukammal hua sab yeh
Bin tere jahaan bhi bewajah tha
Arman dragged her into arm and sang squeezing in his chest….

Tera dil banke main sath tere dhdakun
Khud ko tujhse ab door na jaane doon
Ki sang tere paniyon sa
Paaniyon sa, paniyon sa behta rahun

Tu sunti rahe main kahaniyan sa kehta rahun
Ki sang tere baadlon sa
Baadlon sa, baadlon sa udta rahun
Tere ek ishare pe teri ore mudta rahun


Love you all
