Part 14 : Nikaah -e-Ranjish


Riddhima was still in shock, she could not digest the news. Armaan had an accident? Her Armaan had an accident? As the realisation struck her she stood up and run out of the room.

R: Maaaa, Babaaa

Everyone run in the hall hearing Riddhimas cry. Ananya rushed to her.

An: Kya baat hai beta, sab theek to hai?

Riddhima clutched Ananyas hand. All the while tears were running out of her eyes.

R: Maa, Armaan….wo Armaan….

Billy stepped forward as he was really concerd because of Riddhima’s outburst.

R: Baba Armaan ka accident...


She could not talk any further. Ananyas eyes got wide with horror.

An: Kaha hai mera beta.

Riddhima told them everything about the call and they rushed to the hospital. Even Atul and Padma were present there. Abhi rushed to the reception and asked about Armaan.

Ab: Armaan Mallik, he had and accident and was rushed to the hospital.
N: Let me check.

The nurse tiped something in her computer.

N: Yes, Mr. Mallik. He is in the Emergency Operation room. On the second Floor.
Ab: Thank you.

They all rushed to the second floor. Infront of the Emergeny Operation Room. All were waiting patiently for a doctor or a nurse to come out. If felt like ages waiting there for a news.

Padma and Atul would be flying back day after tomorrow to Sydney. They all were waiting infront of the room. The tears of Ananya and Riddhima were not stopping. Whereas Abhi, Billy and tried to be strong for them. Ishita stayed at home, taking care of Zulaikha. Padma and Atul were there to support them in any way the could. Ananya was hugging Riddhima all the time. And Riddhima was crying her heart out on her new mothers shoulder. After some time Nishita and Barun also joined them. Nishitas eyes red due crying.

Finally after like hours the doctor came out of the room. Ananya and Riddhima were the first one to rush to him.

R: Doctor….Armaan, how is he?
An: Kiasa hai mera beta.

The doctor looked in the room.

D: I am sorry, abhi kuch bhi kehna bohot mushkil hai. Bohot dangerous accident tha. Mr. Armaan has several internal head injuries. Humse jo kuch bhi hua, humne kiya. Already 4 operations kar chuka hai. Aaj aur zyada operations karna unki life ke liye bohot riski hoga.
R: Aap kehna kya chahte hai? Mere Armaan ko kuch nahi ho sakta.
D: dekhiye, please samhale aap apne aapko. Mr. Armaan ki health bohot critical hai. Ab to koi chamatkar hi unko bacha sakta hai. Filhal to humne unko life support se attach kiya hai. 20 days ke baad unka last operation hoga. Baki sab unpe depend karta hai. Agar unhone is 20 days me koi bhi response liya, to unke chances bohot aache hai. Lekin agar unki taraf se koi response nahi aaya to phir wo last operation bohot zyada critical hoga. He has to be strong. Sorry, but I cant help you any further. Hum Mr. Mallik ko kuch der me ek private room me shift kar denge, tab aap unse jaake mil sakte hai.

Then the doctory left from there, leaving a crying Riddhima and Ananya back. Riddhima sunk on the floor.

R: sab meri wajah se ho raha hai. Sab meri galti hai.
An: Yeh kya keh rahi hai tu beta, yeh sab to Khuda ki marzi hai.

Riddhima looked towards Ananya with teary eyes.

R: Nahi Maa, meri wajah se hi Armaan ka accident hua. Aaj hum dono ke beech me bohot buri larayi hui thi. Jab Armaan car leke gaya, to wo bohot gusse me tha, meri wajah se. Mene unko bohot tang kiya. I am sorry Mamma, sab meri galti hai.
An: Nahi meri jaan, isme tumahri koi galti nahi hai. Yeh sab to us Khuda ki es azmaish hai. Jhagre kis couple me nahi hote.

Ananya hugged Riddhima to consult her. Everyone was now deep touched with the news. Padma was somehow relieved that Riddhima had found a new mother.

After sometime they all went to Armaans room. Riddhima was shattered to see im lying on the bed with all the cables attached to his body. She kept herself behind everyone. She had not the guts to get near him. She did not want to hurt him anymore. Ananya was sitting just beside Armaan, holding his hand. Riddhimas heart was crushing each and every second. Nishita noticed Riddhima in the background. She moved to her and took her in her arms.

N: Bhabi…
R: Mujhe Armaan ke bina jeena nahi aata Nishita.
N: Armaan aapko kahi chor ke nahi jayega.
R: Aaj Armaan jis condition me hai is sab ki responsible bhi me hu, me kaise uska samna karu? Armaan Zindagi bhar mujhse nafrat karega.
N: Armaan Zindagi bhar aapse sirf or sirf Mohabbat karega.

Riddhima looked up at Nishita with hope. Nishita wiped away her tears and took Riddhima by her hand. She moved with her to the other side of the bed. Making Riddhima sit to Armaan. Riddhima looked towards Ananya with guilt in her eyes, but she could only see love for her being reflected in Ananyas eyes. Ananya shook her head in a no, as she could feel Riddhima blaming herself again.

After sometime everyone left, giving Riddhima some time alone with Armaan. As everyone got out of the room, Riddhima finally had the guts to look up in Armaans face. he was looking so peaceful lying on the bed. As he would be sleeping after a tyirng day. Riddhima wished to much, that it had been that way.

With shaking hands she put hers on his. She could not take her eyes away from him. Tears were all the while running out of her eyes. She put her head on his hands.

R: mujhe chor ke mat jau Armaan, mujhe tumhare bina jeena nahi aata.

Don’t know for how long she was sitting there with her head on his hand. Suddenly she felt someone tapping her head, not someone, she could recognize this touch everywhere. She looked up and saw Armaan sitting there, perfectly fine. Looking at her with his dashing smile. Riddhima could not believe her eyes. Armaan took her face in his hands and wiped away her tears.

A: mene tumhe kaha tha na, ke mujhe tumhari aankho me aansu nahi pasand.

Riddhima still did not say anything. She was just looking at him.

A: Aisa kya dekh rahi ho?
R: Yehi ke me kitni khushnaseeb hu, jo tum mere saath ho.
A: me to hamesha se hi tumhare saath hu Riddhima, bas sahi waqt ka intezaar tha.
R: to phir mujhe chor ke mat jau na Armaan.
A: Jana to parega, shayad humara saath bas yahi tak ka tha?
R: nahi, aisa nahi ho sakta...
A: honi ko koun taal sakta hai Riddhima...

Again the tears came out of her eyes. She looked at the floor.

R: mujhe tumhare bina jeena nahi aata Armaan. Me nahi jee paungi tumhare bina.

Armaan put his finger under eyes chin and made her look up in his eyes.

A: Jeena to mujhe bhi nahi aata…
R: to phir kyu mujhe chor ke jaa rahe ho…
A: Me majboor hu…
R: Nahi…please Armaan. Agar tum gaye, to tumhare saath saath meri Saanse bhi chali jayengi.
A: I am sorry Riddhima…

Riddhima saw Armaan standing up and moving in the other direction. She wanted to follow him, but she could not move her body. she wanted to shout his name, but nothing was coming out of her mouth. She wanted to stretch her hands out for him, to stop him, but her body was not listening. Armaan turned around and gave Riddhima a smile and then he was gone. Riddhima looked everywhere but he was not there. She looked at his bed, but it was empty. She could not find him. She felt how her heart cletched in her chest. She was shouting his name, but no voice came out of her mouth.

V: bhabi… bhabii..
V: Riddhima beta…

She heard voiced from far and then she was shocken up by Ananya. Riddhima looked around and saw that she was still by Armaan, somehow she must have fallen asleep. But the dream was a horror. She was Armaan still lying there on the bed. Riddhima turned around and hugged Ananaya by her waist.

R: Me Armaan ke bina nahi jee sakti Maa, mujhe uske bina jeena nahi aata.

Ananya patted her head and after sometime, they all left from there back home. Everyone cried seeing Riddhima in this condition. As they reached home Zulaikha run to Riddhima.

Z: Mama, Baba kaha pe hai? Wo nahi aaye aapke saath. Wo theek hai na.

Riddhima just looked at Zulaikha, but she was not able to say anything, so she just left to her room, leaving everyone behind. Seeing Riddhimas ignorance, Zulaikha started to cry.

Ananya came to Zulaikha and hugged her.

Z: Daadi Maa, Ishu Khala ne mujhe bataya ke Baba hospital me hai. Wo wapis aayenge na? Wo mujhe chor ke to nahi jayenge na. Jaise Mama aur Baba mujhe chor ke Allah ke pas chale gaye the. Kya Baba unke pas chale jayenge?

To say that Ananya was confused would be an understatement. What was Zulaikha talking about.

An: Yeh tum kya keh rahi ho beta?
Z: Mama ne kaha tha, ke mere asli Mama aur Baba Allah tala ke pas hai. Kya ab mere Baba bhi unke pas chale jayenge?

Ananya hugged Zulaikha.

An: Nahi meri Jaan, tumare Baba tumhe chor ke kahi nahi jayenge.

Ishita came and took Zulaikha to her room. She but her to sleep and got back to the hall.

An: Zulaikha kya keh rahi thi Padma ji?

Padma looked at Ishita and then at Atul.

P: Zulaikha Riddhima ki nahi, balke mere bare bete Rahul aur Mukaan ki beti hai. Zulaikha bohot choti thi, jab un dono ki plane crash me death ho gayi. Tab se Riddhima ne Zulaikha ko adopt kar liya hai. Lekin Zulaikha jaanti hai ke uske asli parents koun hai.

Ananya was deeply touched by Riddhimas gesture. She felt very proud of her daughter in law or better said of her daughter.

Next day, everyone was in a sad mood. As everyone was eating something Ananya noticed that Riddhima was not even touching her food.

An: Riddhima, beta, kuch to kha lo meri jaan. Aise kaise chale ga?

Riddhima looked up at Ananya with blood shot eyes, the proof that she had not slept the whole night.

R: Nahi Maa, mene faisla kar liya hai. Jab tak Armaan wapis nahi aa jata, tab tak me Roze (fast) rakhungi. Sirf sukhi Roti, namak aur Pani. Iske ilawa kuch bhi nahi khungi.
B: Lekin beta, is se to tumhari tabyat bohot kharab ho jayegi.
R: kuch nahi hoga…
An: Riddhima…
R: Nahi Maa, Armaa ke bina Riddhima wese bhi adhuri hai…
An: Lekin agar tumhe kuch hogaya to?
R: Agar Armaan ko kuch ho gaya, to is ghar se ek nahi, balke do do janaze uthenge.

Then Riddhima stood up and left from there. Soon Atul and Padma flew back to Sydney. Ananya and Billy literally forced them to go back. The following 20 days were horror for the family. Armaan made no signs of recovery. Riddhima had fasted every single day. She was busy praying day and night for Armaan. she would stay for ours with Armaan, just looking at him. And finally the day of the operation had arrived.

After whole 8 hours the doctor came out of the operation theatre. Riddhima was the first one on his side.

D: humne sab kiya jo hum kar skate the. Jaise meine kaha tha ke operation bohot riski hai. I am sorry to say, lekin Armaan coma me chala haya hai.

The doctor left from there, leaving the family shattered behind. when Armaan was back again in his room, everyone went inside. Even Riddhima followed. With her eyes on Armaan. Everone was listening carefully. Finally she said what her heart ways dying to say:

Nigahe aapki pehchaan hai hamari
Muskurahat aapki Shaan hai hmari
Rakhna khayal apna kyunke
Saanse aapki Jaan hai hamari

And then she fell down on the floor unconscious. Everyone run towards her. She has gotten so weak. and now there she was lying on the floor.´

Armaan was lying on the bed, fighting between life and death
Riddhima was lying on the floor, also fighting between life and death.
