Part 6 : Nikaah -e-Ranjish


Riddhima was still lost in Armaan. Armaan was also standing there lost in Riddhima. The time stopped, their bodies stayed on their places, but their souls moved towards each other.

R: Tum yaha pe? Kahi phir se me koi…
A: tum itni shiddat se mujhe pukarao, to phir me kyu nahi aaunga?

he put his hands on her cheek, caressing it with love.

R: me bohot majboor hu, mujhe koi rasta nahi dikh raha. Me kya karu?

A: Sirf or sirf apne dil ki suno…
R: Sirf tum hi mujhe bacha sakte ho. Mujhe is mushkil se nikal sakte ho. Please Armaan, kuch to karo.
A: Me kya karu Riddhima…

Riddhima put her hands above his.

R: Mujhe yaha se le jao, kahi bohot dur. Sab se dur.
A: aur phir tum puri zindagi is guilt ke saath reh logi, ke tumne apne Baba ki last wish tak puri nahi ki.

Riddhima looked at him, she knew that he understands her. He understands her perfectly.

A: Me jaanta hu, ke tum yeh sab nahi kar paugi. kyunke tum yaha se nahi…

he put his finger on her head.

A: balke yaha se soochti ho.

then he put his finger on her heart. Riddhima laughed and put her head on his chest. Armaan also took her in in embrace.

A: lekin me tumse waada karta hu Riddhima, Us Jahaan me tum sirf meri hogi. Sirf aur sirf Armaan ki.

Riddhima hugged him more tight. just forgetting for one moment her state. Suddenly she felt a pull on her hand, as she looked towards it, she saw that it was Muskaan. As Riddhima looked back, she saw that Armaan was standing far away from here. So that all was her imagination, once again. Muskaan looked at the direction, where Riddhima was looking, there she saw Armaan. Suddenly an idea popped up in her mind.

M: Armaan…

Muskaan shouted his name, and gave him a sign to come near her. Armaan was already joined by his siblings and Barun.

A: Hey, hum phir mile. Lagta hai ke kismet hum bar bar milwana chahti hai.

He was only looking at Riddhima. He noticed that her eyes were already red, due to crying. Riddhima on the other hand found it impossible to even look at him directly.

M: Armaan, tum yaha pe kab tak ho?
A: two to three days more, phir next station. Whyß
M: Well actually, kal Riddhima ka Nikaah hai. Kyu na tum bhi attend karo. ofcourse your family is also invited.
R: Kya?

Finally Riddhima looked up with shock. Why is Muskaan doing this? Why is she making everything more difficult for her? Why Muskaan why?

A: That would be our pleasure.
M: Great, phir chalo, tum kal tak humare ghar me hi rehna. That would be so much fun.

Riddhima grabbed her arm. She whispered in her ear.

R: Muski, tu yeh kya kar rahi hai?
M: Trust me Riddhima, please.

Riddhima did not say anything. As she did trust her best friend. When she looked towards Armaan, she saw that he was looking at the dupatta, she was wearing. Riddhima clutched the dupatta and turned around to leave. But just at that moment, a Babaji came. Riddhima and Muskaan put their heads down, and the Babaji put his hand on their heads, giving them their blessing. But the Babaji was only looking towards Riddhima.

B: Tere ander ek aag jal rahi hai, Ishq ki aag. Junoon ki aag. Sabr kar baachi. Abhi bohot mushkilo ko face karna hai tujhe. Lekin Na-Umeed mat hoiyo.
R: Mohabbat ki aag…
B: Tu tarap rahi hai, apne dilbar se milne ke liye. Lekin wo to yahi pe hai, tere bohot kareeb. Lekin wo Nadaan abhi kuch nahi jaanta.

Saying that, the Babaji looked towards Armaan.

B: Par tu fikar mat kar bachi, wo jo upar baitha hai na, sab kuch theek kar dega. Tera Junoon, tera pagalpan, teri dewaangi chila chila ke bol rahi hai, awaaz laga rahi hai. Lekin koi teri pukar sun hi nahi sakta. Ek baat yaad rakhna meri, Dil jis baat pe ari karta hai, Rabb usi baat pe azmata hai. Wo tujhe bhi azmaa raha hai, teri mohabbat ko azmaa raha hai. Tere saath saath usko bhi azmaa raha hai. Sabr rakh beta, sabr rakh. Tera sabr sab kuch badal dega.

Then the Babaji again put his hand on her head, and moved forward, leaving Riddhima in a daze. She looked over her shoulder, and realised that Armaan was all the time here, just behind her.

The next day arrived sooner than expected. Everyone was happy that Armaan and his siblings and friends joined the wedding. Riddhima was in her room with Muskaan. She was going forward and back, thinking what was actually happening.

R: tujhe aisa nahi karna chahiye tha Muski.
M: kyuu nahi, kya pata Armaan is Shaadi ko rok de?
R: come on yr, tu jaanti hai, me us se Mohabbat karti hu, wo mujhse nahi. There is a big difference.
M: Lekin tune to suna hai na, ke kal raat un Babaji ne tujhse kya kaha tha.
R: I know yr, me abhi tak unki baato ko samajhne ki koshish kar rahi hu. Ab kya kare.
M: Kuch nahi, bas intezaar.
R: uffff….

Riddhima than sat on the bed. Muskaan saw her helplessly.

M: Aacha dikha mujhe apni Mendi. Mujhe mene abhi tak dekhi hi nahi.

Muskaan took her hand and she was not surprised to see an A instead of an S on her hand. She looked up at her and smirked.

R: What? mere naam me bhi ek A aata hai.
M: I know, mene kuch kaha kya?

Both Riddhima and Muskaan smiled. Just in that moment, the door opened and Armaan came in. Seeing him here, Muskaan excused herself and moved towards the door, but before she closed the door, she winked at Riddhima.

Riddhima was very still, she had no idea what to do or how to react. Armaan on the other hand saw Riddhima standing there, looking beautiful as ever. He excused himself from everyone, as he felt a urge to meet Riddhima. It felt very important to him, to meet her. He moved forward towards her and put his finger on her chin, to make her look into his eyes.

A: bohot khubsoorat lag rahi ho tum, kisi ki nazar na lage.

Riddhima did not know, what to say, so she just kept quiet. But the red colour told Armaan everything. She could not the blush. Then Armaan saw his dupatta lying on her bed. He moved to her bed and took the dupatta. Riddhima looked with confusion at him. Armaan came in front of her and then put the dupatta on her forehead. Riddhima closed her eyes, to feel this moment. Armaan was instantly lost in her. He then took her hands and looked at her Mehndi, he smirked seeing an A standing there. Then he did something, which he himself could not explain. He moved forward and kissed her forehead. Riddhima gasped for air.

She opened her eyes and looked at him. So many emotions playing in her eyes. Neither did she stop him, nor did he stepped back.

A: Aaj bohot important din hai tumahre liye, me chahta hu ke tum yeh dupatta aaj zaroor pehno.
R: Agar tum kuch na bhi kehte, tab bhi me yeh zaroor pehnti.
A: kyu…

Riddhima wasn’t sure if she should answer him or not, she decided to leave it. It was definitely not the right time. Armaan also noticed, that she purposely did not answered his question, so he also let it be.

A: kya me tumse kuch aur mangu?
R: tum jo chao wo mang sakte ho.
A: will you sing today? Please. Mujhe tumhari awaz sun ni hai.
R: tumahre liye....kuch bhi....

Before Armaan could answer, there was a knock on the door and Muskaan entered the room.

M: I am sorry ke me aise hi aa gayi, lekin sab upar aa rahe hai, Riddhima ko tayar karne ke liye.

Armaan glanced once again at Riddhima and then left from there. Just as Armaan left, the other ladies and women entered the room. With Riddhima’s wedding dress and jewellery. Riddhima sighed and controlled her feeling. As she opened her eyes with a fake smile plastered on her face.

(okee, hehehe here comes once again a song, I know I know, three songs in a row, but what to do, I just lovee it :D Title: Sun Yaara, enjoy)

Noor basa in akhiyon main tera
Kab hoi teri main rab jane mera

Riddima closed her eyes and then started to sing, just as Armaan had wished from her. She was dressed up as a bride, sitting in her room, looking in the mirror.

Rang diya tere ishq nay youn
Ho gai main tu hi tu

She closed her eyes and remembered the moment from before, as Armaan was in her room and put that dupatta on her.

Rang tunay kesa hay charhaya

Downstairs Armaan and everyone else head her voice. Armaan was very happy to hear her sing, meanwhile everyone else expect Muskaan, thought that this song was dedicated to Sid.

Sun yaara sun yara
Tera ishq da chola paya

Riddhima looked at the Dupatta, which she purposely wore, as Armaan had asked her to do it.

Sun yaara sun yara
Tera ishq da chola paya

The ladies too Riddhima down, and Armaan’s breath got stuck in his throat as he saw how beautiful Riddhima looked. He felt his ego raise, as he saw Riddhima wearing his dupatta.

Anchal main bhar kay phool yeah saray
Khushboo say bhar do mausam tumhare

They made Riddhima sit on the bench, she looked at everywhere in the hall for Armaan and finally she saw him.

Khush ho rahe hain sapne tumhare
Baithe raho tum dhadkan kinare

She remembered how she dreamed of him every single day, how he made her happy, how her heartbeat would rise, is she just thought about him.

Rang diya tere ishq nay youn
Ho gai main tu hi tu

Not even for once did she looked away from him, they both were lost in each others eyes.

Rang tunay kesa hay charhaya

Riddhima closed her eyes and controlled her tears.

Sun yara sun yara
Tera ishq da chola paya

Sun yara sun yara
Tera ishq da chola paya

Muskaan came and sat beside her. And then every single light in the room dimmed. The main focus was only on Armaan and Riddhima. Riddhima blended everyone in that room out. Just her and Armaan.

Dil ki teh main zakhm chupay hain
Qadmon talay sab raste rukay hain

She felt how she was breaking down. Her love was standing infront of her, but still she was sitting here, dressed up as a bride, and waiting for someone else, who would be then her husband.

Khushiyon ka say sir say uthay hain
Sajdon mein aansoo saray chupaye hain

She closed her eyes and looked down, tears fell on her lap. Armaan noticed everything, but even he had no idea how to react.

Rang diya tere ishq nay youn
Ho gai main tu hi tu

As Riddhima looked up, everything was normal again. She saw that Sid had arrived and he was coming towards her. Sid passed Armaan and was coming near and near.

Rang tunay kesa hay charhaya

Sid sat beside her, but still Riddhima was looking towards Armaan.

Sun yaara sun yara
Tera ishq da chola paya

For the last time, she wante to see him, to capture his face in her mind.

Sun yaara sun yara
Tera ishq da chola paya

Then the Moulvi came and asked both of them. At first Sid said yes, and then….

Riddhimas thoughts:
Yeh akhri waqt hai, jab me Armaan ko dekh rahi hu. Ek shabd ke baad, sab kuch change ho jayega, sab kuch badal jayega. EK akhri baar apni MOhabbat ko dekh lu. Aaj Khuda ne bhi mera saath chor diya. Meri saari koshishe nakamyaab hui. Meri Ibadat me wo taqat nahi thi. Meri Dua’en rang nahi layi. Meri faryaad nahi suni gayi. Mene sab kuch paa ke bhi sab kuch kho diya hai. Mene apni Mohabbat pane se pehle hi kho di. Wo mere itne kareeb hoke bhi mera na ho saka.

Riddhima was still looking at Armaan, then she closed her eyes and said Yes. At the exact time a tear flew out of Armaans eyes.

Both Sid and Riddhima signed the papers there, and here Nishita came to Armaan. She put her hand on his shoulder.

N: Armaan, yeh Aansu?
A: pata nahi aapi…
N: Agar tumhe nahi pata hoga, to phir...
A: I think....
N: you think....
A: I know…

Nishita looked up at him, never has she seen her brother this sad or effected by anyone.

A: I have fallen in love with her.

Nishita did not know what to say, so she just hugged him. Then Armaan was leaving from there, as he could not see it anymore, but Nishitas voice stopped him.

N: Kaha jaa rahe ho tum Armaan?
A: Jo mera hai, usko lene.

Then he left from there, and went inside Riddimas room. As everyone was busy downstairs, no one noticed him getting in Riddhimas room. Inside the room, he went to her closed and took out her dupatta. He looked at it.

A: tumhe na sahi, lekin tumhari nishani ko me zaroor apne sine se laga ke rakhunga.

Then Armaan left from there, as he came down, he glanced at Riddhima, she was not looking at him. She was just looking down. He took steps back and then left from there. Left from her life.

Riddhima was now sitting in Sid’s room, waiting for her husband to enter the room. She had no idea how to feel. Today, something broke inside her. Yes, she was still alive, but she had already died inside. She gave up everything. Now, nothing mattered to her. She was feeling nothing, absolutely nothing. To the outworld she was smiling, but inside, she was not even able to feel her own pain, because she shutted everything down.

Soon she heard the door open, and Sid entering the room. Her husband entereing the room. Still no reaction from Riddhima. He came and sat beside Riddhima, still no reaction. He made her look into his eyes, but still no reaction. He kissed her forehead, still no reaction. He took down her dupatta, still no reaction. One by one, he took down her jewellery, still no reaction. Then he made her lye on the bed, still no reaction. Riddhima just clutched the bedsheet as she felt Sid’s body covering hers.
