Part 10 : Armaan aur Riddhima ka safar

The next day was the Sangeet function at the Malik house. A neighbour and close family friend of the Malik family had come down to London today for the functions and wedding; they were very close and almost the only family they had. The function was taking place during the evening but the Gupta family was there a little earlier; Anjali and Riddhima sat in the living room while preparations were taking place, then Atul came down and sat in the living room with Anjali.

Ridz: Main abhi ayi… – excusing herself from the room and leaving the love birds alone for a while

Anji: Where are you going?

Ridz: Kebab main haadi nahi banna chahti… – smiling sweetly at Atul

Anjali became shy as Riddhima walked out of the room and left her alone with Atul. Now that they were alone Atul looked at Anjali for a long while and then finally broke the silence.

Atul: Aaj tum bohot achi lag rahi ho…


Anji: Thanks… – very shy

Riddhima went into the kitchen where she witnessed Armaan talking to an older lady.

Armaan: Abhi bhi naraz hain mujhse?

Aunty: Bohot…I tried very hard to make her understand…par tum usse janti ho na…

Armaan: Haan…bohot ziddi hain… - smiling then becomes serious again - …but…its not my fault…

Aunty: Jaanti hoon beta…tum phikar mat kar…waqt ke saath woh samaj jayegi…don't worry about it...

Nandani walked into the kitchen carrying a tray but she stopped when she saw Riddhima standing at the door.

Nandani: Riddhima beta…kya huwa…

Armaan and the Aunty looked over at the door to where they were standing.

Ridz: Kuch nahi aunty…main bas… - takes the tray from Nandani with a smile – …madat karne ayi thi…agar kuch bhi kaam hai toh mujhe bata dena…where should I put this?

Nandani: Tum toh mehman hain yahan pe…jake aram karle…hum karenge…aur Armaan hain na…woh madat karega… – looked at Armaan who was chilling, eating a banana and listening to their conversation

Ridz: Its okay aunty I'll do it...waise bhi main wahan pe bored ho rahi thi isliye main yahan par agayi…yeh kahan raku?

Nandani: Table par raklo… - looks at Armaan – …kuch seek…

Aunty: Kitni pyari bachi hain… – looking at Riddhima

Armaan: Ayi aap bhi? – looking over at her in shock - …Pyaari nahi pagal hain…pagal kaane se bhaag ke ayi hain…sab ka dimag khati hain...aap bhi bachke rehna...

Ridz: Kya kaha tumne?? – shocked she puts her hands on her hips

Armaan threw a kitchen towel at her and ran out of the kitchen making Riddhima run after him. They played chase around the house until Riddhima gave up as she couldn't catch him or hit him but Armaan kept throwing stuff at her and she became frustrated. She finally gave up and went back to Anjali and Atul; Armaan also came there to tease her.

Later on in the evening the gang and other close friends of the Gupta family who had become close to the Maliks' since the engagement had arrived and the gang had decided to play Antakshri. They decided to play this game after the girls had won the toss. The girls sat on one sofa and the boys sat opposite them on another sofa; the girls started the game.

Muskaan: Mere Haathon Mein Nau-nau Choodiyaan Hain…Thodaa Thahro Sajan Majbooriyaan Hain…

Rahul: Ha…guys c'mon… – guys are all thinking of a song

Armaan: Happy Happy Happy Happy days are here again…Happy days are here again…

Abhi: Nice one…na… - looking at the girls

Niki: Nimbooda Nimbooda Nimbooda…Arre Kaacha Kaacha Chhota Chhota Nimbooda Layi Do…Nimbooda Nimbooda Nimbooda…

Ridz: Waah Niki…A guys…

The guys were all thinking of a song taking their time.

Ridz: Tik tik one…tik tik two…

Armaan: That's cheating…give us some time…

Atul: Aankhen khuli ho ya ho band…Deedar unka hota hai…Kaise kahoon main o yaara yeh pyaar kaise hota hai… – very shy while singing

Armaan: Wow bro…beautiful!! – claps him on the back

Ridz: Hai na bolo, Hai na bolo…Dil ye mera kho gaya…Haay ye kya ho gaya…Ye kaise ho gaya, Ye kaise ho gaya…Hote hote ho gaya…Hai na bolo, Hai na bolo…

While Riddhima was singing Armaan was unable to focus on anything else but her. This was the first time he had really looked at her properly, he had always thought that she was quite pretty from the first day he had met her in the Maths class but today it was different. Today he actually thought she looked beautiful, it was like he could actually see her in a different angle, her beauty, her sensitivity, her childishness and her very sweet nature. When she had finished singing he didn't even hear the last letter of the song but carried on with the game singing…

Armaan: Balle balle je soniya de rang dekhlo…bina dor di udh di patang dekh lo…Aj munde hue enhan de malang dekh lo…bina dor di udh di patang dekh lo...

Niki: L?... – looks around at the girls

Anji: Laal dupatta ud gaya re bairi hawa ke jhonke se…Mujhko piya ne dekh liya haai re dhoke se… - looking down shyly - …Manaa ke mujhe dil dega voh, magar meri jaan lega voh…Laal dupatta ud gaya re bairi hawa ke jhonke se…Mujhko piya ne dekh liya hai re dhoke se…

Everyone was shocked at her beautiful voice and praised her then they carried on with their game. The boys couldn't think of a song beginning with S and they took their time.

Muskaan: Tik tik one…tik tik two… – teasing

Rahul: Say Shava Shava Say Shava Shava…Roop Hai Tera Sona Soni Teri Payal…Chanchana Chhan Aise Chhanke Karde Sab Ko Ghayal…Keh Raha Aankhon Ka Kaajal Ishq Mein Jeena Marna…Say Shava Shava Mahiya Say Shava Shava…

Ridz:  Saajan tumse pyaar ki laraayi mein…Saajan tumse pyaar ki laraayi mein…Toot gayi choodiyaan kalaayi mein, kalaayi mein…

Armaan: Umm…Miley Jab Hum Tum… – very out of tune

All the girls clapped and laughed at him making him stop and turn to them with a quizzical look.

Armaan: Kya?? - confused

Ridz: Yeh gaana yahan se shuru nahi hota hai…

Muskaan: Aur yeh shaadi ke gaana nahi hain…so boo losers!!!

Niki: Yess!! We won!

Armaan: That's not fair…there was no theme…

Ridz: It's a sangeet ceremony…obviously meaning we're singing shaadi song…so get over it…you lost… - sticking her tongue out at him

The three girls stood up to left the room and Armaan went after them.

Armaan: That's cheating…

Niki: Losers!!

Riddhima walked into the next room with Muskaan and Nikita at her two sides while Armaan followed her; he began to sing the song from Kuch Na Kaho.

Armaan: Baat Meri Suniye Toh Zara…Baat Meri Suniye Toh Zara...

Ridz: Chodiye Bhi Kehne Aur Sunne Ko Hai Baki Kya Raha...

Armaan: Dekhiye Main Keh Raha Hoon Baat Meri Suniye To Zara…

Ridz: Aap Kya Kahenge Mujhko Khoob Hai Pata…

Armaan: Arre Baat Meri Suniye To Zara…

Ridz: Phir Milenge Waqt Agar Mila…

Armaan: Par Baat Meri... – stops mid sentence

Riddhima completely ignored him and walked towards Anjali and singing the song from Hum Aapke Hain Kaun.

Ridz: Didi Tera Devar Deewana…Hai Ram, Kudiyon Ko Daale Daana…Dhandha Hai Yeh Uska Puraana…Hai Ram, Kudiyon Ko Daale Daana…Pagla Hai Koi Usko Bataana…Hai Ram, Kudiyon Ko Daale Daana…

Armaan walked up behind her and they were about to start fighting again when out of nowhere Atul walked in between the two and held onto Anjali's hand and began to sing…

Atul: Ankhoon pe mohabbat likhde… - holding out his hand for her to take - …Saaason pe mohabbat likhde… - she stands up  - …Hootoon pe mohabbat likhde… - they walk out into the garden - …Kehta hai dil dewwana… - slowly dance

The gang followed them outside, Muskaan and Rahul and Abhi and Nikita danced in couples while Riddhima and Armaan danced at the side on their own but Armaan kept sneaking looks at Riddhima.

Anji: Jo dil mein chupi hai mere…Jo dil mein chupi hai tere…Dhadkan mein woh chahat likh de…Kehta hai dil deewaana…

All Dance: Dholiyaa dholnaa…Razz-e-dil kholna…Dholiyaa dholnaa…Aage kuch toh bolna…

Atul and Anjali danced quite close and they become so lost in their own world; it's a very sweet moment.

Atul: Ankhoon pe, Saaason pe…

Anji: Hootoon pe, Baaaton pe…

Atul: Raaton pe…

Anji: Pal pal mein…

Both: Mere dil mein mohabbat likhde…

They had both snapped back to reality when everyone started clapping. The girls were all standing on one side and the boys on one side, and then Rahul started to sing…

Rahul: Baliye te mukhde pe dil lalchave…Laungda pe laskara jaanle na jaave…

Abhi: Baliye te mukhde pe dil lalchave…Laungda pe laskara jaanle na jaave…

Both: Dekhe bina dekhe tenu raha bhi na jave…Roop saloona tere sono changda…Duppatta Tera...Haye Duppatta Tera...Duppatta Tera...Nau rang da haye ni mera dil mangda…Duppatta Tera...

When they had finished singing Muskaan started to sing a song from Koi Aap Sa…

Muskaan: Dil mere dil dhol raha hein nachan ko yeh bhol raha hain…

Niki: Ooo bavariya baand mere pero mein payaliya…

Both: Pyaas jale asse anjaani ishq mein hoga deewane…ko gaya mein kuch hosh nahin hein is mere koi dosh nahin…

All: Your always on my mind o mahi ya ve…

Rahul: Nas nas mein ishq dhol raha hein nachan ko yeh bhol raha hain…

Rahul/Muskaan: Oo bavariya baand mere pero mein paayaliya…

While the gang were dancing Atul and Anjali had settled down on chairs in the patio area and are watching them having fun. Then Padma walked towards Anjali, looked at her and sang…

Padma: Chanda Meri Chanda Tujhe Kaise Mein Yeh Samjhaoon…Mujhe Lagti Hai Tu Kitni Pyaari Re…Khusiyan Jitni Hai Sab Jitni Hai Sab Dhoondh Ke Laoon…Teri Doli Ke Sang Kar Do Sari Re…

Padma and Riddhima hugged Anjali and the atmosphere becomes very calm. Then Atul and Armaan walk around them and started singing with all the boys.

Atul/Armaan: Tu Jo Aayee Sajhke Mehndi Rajke…Chal Bajke Oh Soniye…Dil Kitno Ka Khaye Dhajke Oh Soniye…

Atul pulled Anjali onto the grass area while Armaan helped Padma and left Riddhima standing there fuming, everyone danced to the chorus, Riddhima stood there watching until Vikram and Nandani walked up behind her and told her to go and dance, she smiled and pulled them onto the dance floor with her.

Everyone: Jind Maahi Ve Soni Soni Aaja Mahi Ve…Everybody Sing Soni Soni Aaja Mahi Ve…Jind Maahi Ve Soni Soni Aaja Mahi Ve…Everybody Sing Soni Soni Aaja Mahi Ve

That evening everyone had lots of fun; they had dinner after a while and again more dance and masti then the guest and the Gupta family left a little early as the next day was the shaadi and the girls needed their beauty sleep...
