** TITLE SONG **
Dost ban jaate hain dill ki aawaazon me,
Dost ban jaate hain dillon ke armaanon me,
Dost ban jaate hain muhabbat ki muskaanon me,
Dost ban jaate hain muhabbaton ke jazbaaton me,
Dost ban jaate hain Muhabbat Ki Raahon Me!
Rishta jud jaata hai ek pal ki saugaaton me,
Rishta jud jaata hai kuch palon ke ikraaron me,
Rishta jud jaata hai ek gam ki parchhaiyon me,
Rishta jud jaata hai kuch gamon ke lamhaaton me,
Rishta jud jaata hai Muhabbat Ki Raahon Me!
Dill mill jaate hain dushman ki nigaahon me,
Dill mill jaate hain dushmani ki sadaaon me,
Dill mill jaate hain dost ki duaon me,
Dill mill jaate hain dosti ki fizaaon me,
Dill mill jaate hain Muhabbat Ki Raahon Me!
Muhabbat ho jaati hai doston ki ruswaiyon me,
Muhabbat ho jaati hai rishton ke afsaanon me,
Muhabbat ho jaati hai dill milne ki sard raaton me,
Muhabbat ho jaati hai aise ishq ke parvaanon me,
Muhabbat ho hi jaati hai Muhabbat Ki Raahon Me!
RECAP: Armaan has no control over his emotions but still he tries to keep his love to himself, knowing he should first be totally sure about himself. Armaan gifts Ridhimaa a car on Frindship's day and then later confesses his love to her. Ridhimaa refuses to believe him and tells him to forget all this. Armaan regains his memory on seeing his interview CD which Inspector Tiwari provides him. He tells the orthers about it and is angry with them all, especially Ridhimaa. All the interns, senior doctors and Shashank formulate a plan to bring Armaan and Ridhimaa together again. Ridhimaa at last, confesses to Armaan that she still loved him but they could not be together because of Karan's threat. Armaan, depressed and disappointed and finding no other alternative, jumps down from the terrace.
Ridhimaa, Rahul, Muskaan, Anjali, Atul, Shubhankar and Kirti, all were peering over the boundary to see how Armaan was.
Ridhimaa: (crying) Armaan!
Atul: Yahan se to kuch dikh nahi raha. Hum log fourth floor par hain aur andhera bhi to bahut hai.
Shubhankar: Chalo jaldi neeche. Itne upar se girne par to...
Atul, Rahul and Shubhankar ran downstairs.
Ridhimaa: (crying) Armaan! Armaan!
She tried to follow the men downstairs but Anjali held her back.
Anjali: (tears flowing down her face) Ye tumne kya kiya Ridzi? Armaan ko tumhari wajah se hum sab ne kho diya. How could you? Ab kya uski laash dekhne jaogi?
Muskaan: (crying) Wo tujhse kitna pyar karta tha? Aur tumne... tumne use kitna kamzor samjha. Tu Armaan ko nahi jaanti? Wo kisi bhi cheez, kisi bhi khatre ka saamna kar sakta hai lekin tumhari berukhi nahi seh sakta.
Ridhimaa tried to go but Anjali did not leave her hand.
Ridhimaa: Di. Please mujhe jaaney do. Agar main nahi gayi to main use kho doongi. Mujhe vishwaas hai ki Armaan mera intzaar zaroor karega... please di... please!
Anjali left her hand and they all trooped downstairs. They met Rahul, Atul and Shubhankar who were waiting for the lift and joined them. The lift clangered to a halt infront of them. They all entered. Reaching the ground floor, all rushed towards the exit. They went out and began searching for Armaan.
Atul: (from one side) Yahan... jaldi...
They all rushed there. Armaan was lying sprawled on a heap of mattresses (which had came to be used in the hospital). His eyes were closed. All thought the worst. Shubhankar came near Armaan and checked his pulse. His expressions hardened. He turned towards the others.
Shubhankar: Armaan... Armaan is no more.
She fainted and fell on the ground.
All now turned towards Ridhimaa. Suddenly there was a movement behind them. Armaan was standing up, holding his back.
He hugged him.
Rahul: Tu to theek hai. Lekin Dr.Shubhankar to...
Not only Rahul but everyone except Armaan and Ridhimaa were looking at Shubhankar who grinned.
Armaan: Wo... maine unhe indicate kiya tha ki wo naatak karein.
Shubhankar: Haan. Jab main Dr.Armaan ki pulse check kar raha tha tab unhone mera haath press kiya aur main samajh gaya ki mujhe kya karna hai.
Armaan was now looking at Ridhimaa who was lying on the ground.
Armaan: (rushing towards Ridhimaa) Ridhimaa!
Anjali: Armaan. Tum jaise jahan the, wahin lete raho.
Armaan: Lekin Ridhimaa...
Kirti: Wo kewal behosh hui hain shock ki wajah se...
Muskaan: To fir hume aur naatak karna hai?
Rahul: Haan. Aur ye to tere baayen haath ka khel hai.
Muskaan: Oye tu chup ho ja. Mujhe rone de.
Atul: Chalo sab log aise pretend karo ki Armaan...
He hugged Armaan.
Armaan: (patting Atul) Achha ab baatein baad me... main jaata hoon.
He went back and lay down as before. Anjali shook Ridhimaa's face.
Anjali: Ridzi! Ridzi!
Ridhimaa came round.
Anjali: Ridz! Armaan! He's dead!
Ridhimaa: (crying out aloud) Nahi! Ye nahi ho sakta.
She stood up and went where Armaan was lying. His face was expressionless.
Ridhimaa: (shrieking) Armaan!
She went and shook Armaan's limp body.
Ridhimaa: (crying hard) Armaan! Armaan utho! Armaan utho!
Atul: Ab wo nahi uthega Ridz! Wo humesha ke liye...
Ridhimaa: (shouting) Atul! Armaan theek hai. Hai na Armaan? Armaan utho... please!
But there was no movement in Armaan's body. Ridhimaa's cries were echoing in the surroundings. Armaan was feeling guilty but he did not move.
Ridhimaa: Armaan... Armaan tum nahi ja sakte... Armaan utho... Armaan main tumhe chod kar nahi jaungi. Jo tum kahoge wahi karungi. Armaan please...
Kirti: Dr.Ridhimaa sambhaliye apne aapko. Dr.Armaan is no more.
Anjali came to pick Ridhimaa, who was lying over Armaan's chest, face down, her tears washing dirt off his clothes.
Anjali: (acting beautifully) Ridz chalo.
Ridhimaa: (holding Armaan's body tight) Nahi! Main nahi jaungi. Armaan utho... utho aur mujhse lado. Dekho tumhari Ridhimaa ro rahi hai... dekho Armaan... tum mujhe rote hue nahi dekh sakte the na. To utho aur mere aansoon ponchho...
She was getting hysterical. All were afraid that her crying might spoil their plan because they knew that Armaan could not bear her crying.
Ridhimaa: (beating Armaan's chest with her fists) Armaan!
Muskaan: (crying) Ridhimaa... ab wo nahi uthega. Wo chala gaya.
But Ridhimaa was not hearing. She was gazing at Armaan's face.
Ridhimaa: I... I love you Armaan!... I am sorry.... main... please Armaan ek baar uth jao... please...
Armaan's heart was wrenching due to Ridhimaa's sobs. He could not bear it. He felt he would surely die if he heard her crying any more and was getting ready to get up. But he also wanted to make sure that Ridhimaa would never ever try to leave him.
Ridhimaa: (crying her eyes out) Armaan... Tum kehte the na ki tum mujhse bahut pyar karte ho aur mere liye kuch bhi kar sakte ho. To please meri khaatir waapas aa jao. Please Armaan...
Rahul knew that Armaan was on the verge of getting up. He came near Ridhimaa.
Rahul: Ridhimaa... tum hi to Armaan se koi rishta nahi rakhna chahti thi na?
Ridhimaa: (crying bitterly, holding Rahul's shirt) Ye meri galti thi. Is galti ki itni badi saza... ab main Armaan ki har baat maanungi. Please usse keh do ki ek baar waapas aa jaaye... Rahul Armaan se kaho ki uth jaaye please...
A car stopped in front of them. Shashank stepped down from it. He came towards them.
Shashank: Kya hua? Ye Ridhimaa is tarah kyun ro rahi hai aur Armaan... ye kya... what?
He had spotted Armaan lying on the ground. Ridhimaa ran to her father and hugged him, crying on his shoulder.
Ridhimaa: Papa! Armaan chala gaya. Maine use maar daala. Papa!
Ridhimaa: Papa. Maine usse uski zindagi cheen li. Meri wajah se usne terrace se kood kar...
Shashank: (deeply shocked) Ye tum kya keh rahi ho Ridhimaa? Tum hosh me to ho?
Shashank glanced around. Everyone was performing brilliantly. There were tears in each one's eyes. He thought that this confirmed what Ridhimaa was saying.
Ridhimaa: Maine Armaan ko maar daala... maine...
She was getting uncontrollable. She got back to Armaan and flung herself on his limp body.
Ridhimaa: (crazily) Armaan! Maine tumhari jaan li hai... mujhe bhi jeene ka koi haq nahi hai... Armaan main tumhare bina nahi ji sakti... main bhi tumhare pass aa rahi hoon...
The others were now terrified. Maybe they had gone a little further in bringing out the truth. Armaan sensed danger even with his eyes closed. He immediately opened his eyes but no one was looking at him. Ridhimaa had found Armaan's pocket knife lying on the ground. She caught it and proceeded to bring it to her neck when a strong hand pulled her hand away. Ridhimaa looked down at the hand holding hers and her tearful eyes widened with shock.
Armaan pulled the knife from Ridhimaa's hand and it somehow cut into his chest. Blood was oozing from the wound but he didn't care.
Ridhimaa: (crying with happiness) Armaan... Armaan... Armaan...
She could not speak further. Her voice was obscurred with emotions.
Shashank: Armaan tum to...
Armaan: Yes. I am alive!
He looked around, the others were smiling and their faces were free from vestiges of shock which was visible only on Ridhimaa and Shashank's faces. Armaan sat up. Ridhimaa engulfed him into a hug. Ridhimaa was not leaving him, afraid that if she might leave him then she would lose him again.
Ridhimaa: (crying) Armaan... tum... Armaan I am sorry... please ab mujhe chod ke mat jaana warna main bhi...
Armaan separated her from him. She was in a very bad condition. In such a small time, she had cried her heart out for him and was unrecognisable. Armaan swiped the tears from her cheeks. Ridhimaa looked as if she had got a new life. Armaan pointed to the pocket knife.
Armaan: Ye tum kya kar rahi thi?
Ridhimaa: Ye tum mujhse pooch rahe ho? Aur tumne jo itna bada mazaak kiya...
Armaan looked at her with hurt eyes.
Armaan: Mazaak? Tumhe ye mazaak laga?
Shashank: To kya ye mazaak nahi tha?
Ridhimaa also looked enquiringly at Armaan. Rahul spoke while Armaan looked down at the ground.
Rahul: Nahi sir. Armaan ne definitely suicide karne ki koshish ki thi. Wo bachta bhi nahi agar ye mattresses yahan par nahi hoti.
Shashank: My God! Armaan tum to itne brave ho fir ye buzdili...
Armaan: (gazing at Ridhimaa who had again started crying) Kya karoon sir? Main kuch bhi seh sakta hoon, kitni bhi choten seh sakta hoon lekin ye dil ki chot bahut jaanleva hoti hai. Agar main suicide attempt nahi bhi karta to bhi main Ridhimaa ki bina zyada din tak nahi reh paata. End me result to same hi hona tha. Ghut ghut kar jeene ka kya faayda?
Armaan: Main to khushi khushi is duniya se chala jaata ek baar tum keh kar to dekhti. Na tumne mera saath diya aur na taqdeer ne. Marna bhi chaaha to wo bhi nahi kar paya. "...Apni har ek tamanna se shikayat hai mujhe"
Ridhimaa: Armaan. Mujhe maaf kar do. Mujhe laga ki tumse door hokar main kam se kam tumhe to bacha paungi. Mujhe kya pata tha ki... I am sorry. Main tumhe kabhi chod ke nahi jaungi...
She was crying hard. Armaan lifted her face. Ridhimaa looked into his eyes and found only love there. There were no questions, no doubts.
Armaan: I should be sorry. Agar meri wajah se tumhe kuch ho jaata to...
Ridhimaa smiled at his concern.
Ridhimaa: Mujhe kuch nahi hota. Tum jo mere pass the. Tum mujhe kuch nahi hone dete.
Armaan stared at her tone. There was a tinge of proudness and love in it. He smiled reminiscently.
Armaan: Aur jo har baar tumko bachane ke chakkar me mujhe chot lagti hai uska kya?
He was pointing towards his chest where the blood was still flowing.
Ridhimaa: Ye kaise hua?
Armaan: Aapke daredevil stunt ko rokne ke liye jo chaaku cheena tha ye usi ka nateeja hai.
Ridhimaa: (fresh tears leaking from her eyes) Sab meri wajah se hua hai na. Main bahut buri hoon... mujhe maaf kar do...
Armaan: Ek shart par...
Armaan: Ab kabhi mujhe chod kar jaaney ki baat to nahi karogi?
Ridhimaa: Nahi. Kabhi nahi jaungi. Tum kahoge tab bhi nahi jaungi. Hamesha chewing gum ki tarah chipki rahoongi.
Armaan: Good! Tum to bahut samajhdaar ho gayi ho.
He wiped her tears.
Kirti: Dr.Armaan ab bahut ho gaya. Ab chaliye waapas Sanjeevani me. Aapko dressing ki zarorat hai. Cut gehra lag raha hai.
Armaan again tried to get up. His back was aching very badly. He stood up holding his back but could not walk properly and staggered. Atul and Rahul came to help him.
Armaan: My back... ouch... aaaahhh!!
Rahul: Ab itni upar se giroge to chot to lagegi. Shukr hai ki gaddon par gire the warna...
Armaan: Warna kabr me girta. Right?
Atul: Tu to chup hi reh. Teri to police me complaint karni chahiye. Suicide attempt ke liye. Hai na sir?
He was asking Dr.Shashank.
Shashank: Of course!
Armaan: Kya? Kyun?
Shubhankar: (adding on) Aapko pata nahi suicide karna humare desh me gunaah hai?
Armaan: Isse to achha tha ki main mar hi jaata. Kam se kam... arrey Atul, Rahul tum dono kya kar rahe ho?
Both were hugging him.
Atul: Ab tu kabhi aisa karne ki koshish bhi mat karna. Jaan hi nikaal ke rakh di thi hum sab ki.
Rahul: Tujhe nahi pata ki hum par kya beeti jab humne tujhe yahan pade hue dekha.
Armaan: Jaanta hoon. Aur uske liye I am sorry. Waise tum log acting kaafi achhi kar lete ho.
Muskaan: Haan. Hum to hain hi nautanki waale.
Armaan: Aur Muskaan tu to bada real roti hai. Anjali you too.
Rahul: Chalo humara plan to successful raha.
Armaan: Kaun sa plan?
Anjali: Tum dono ko milaane ka plan.
Kirti and Shubhankar told both of them about their plans.
Ridhimaa: Wo lift me kharabi...
Shashank: Sab planned thi.
Ridhimaa: Papa aap bhi?
Shashank: Jab sab log shaamil he tab main kyun hatta? Mujhe tum dono ki khushi pyari nahi hai kya?
Armaan: Aur isliye aap logon ne... Aapne bhi?
He was staring at Dr.Kirti, who blushed.
Armaan: (continuing) Aur aapko pata hai basket kitna darr gayi thi?
Anjali: Haan pata hai. Hum sab bahar hi to khade hokar tum logon ki baatein sun rahe the.
Armaan: I don't believe you all. Aur terrace par bhi...
Atul: Haan bachhu.
Armaan: (haltingly) Tum logon ne sab kuch dekha?
Muskaan: Dekha bhi aur suna bhi. Kya scenes the. Wow! So romantic! Koi mere saamne aise karta to main to wahi par usse shaadi kar leti. Lekin Ridhimaa...
Armaan: Haan use mujhe chot khila kar hi chain milta hai. Hai na basket?
Ridhimaa shook her head. She was still feeling guilty. What if she really lost her Armaan for her stupidity?
Armaan: (warningly) Ab roi to main sach me...
Ridhimaa quickly wiped off her tears. Armaan came towards her. Shashank supported him.
Armaan: Thank you sir. Well Ridhimaa agar main sach me marunga to bhi tum itna hi rogi?
Ridhimaa: Kyunki main bhi tumhare saath...
Armaan put his hand to her mouth.
Ridhimaa gently removed his hand.
Shashank: Armaan. Tumne aaj meri beti ko bahut rulaya.
Armaan: Aapko apni beti ke aansun dikhte hain lekin jo main itne din roya, mere aansun, meri haalat kisi ko nahi dikhi?
Shashank: Dikhti thi Armaan. Lekin hum kar bhi kya sakte the? Karan ki dhamki aur Ridhimaa ki kasam ne hume chup kara diya tha.
Armaan: Ridhimaa? Kya tumhe main itna kamzor lagta hoon ki main us Karan ki dhamki se darr jaunga?
Ridhimaa: Isi baat ka to darr tha ki tum kisi baat se nahi darte. Tum to itne impulsive ho...
Atul: Chalo chodo in baaton ko. Karan to jail me hai na? To use wahi par rehne do.
They had reached the emergency ward. Ridhimaa did Armaan's dressing. He was goggling at her face and she was getting embarrassed with Armaan's gaze on her continuously.
Armaan: Kitna sharmaati ho!
Shashank: Sab log besharm thode hi hote hain!
All laughed and Armaan too grinned.
Next day in Sanjeevani's locker room. Ridhimaa came in and glanced around. No one was there, not even Armaan. She was surprised at his absence.
Ridhimaa: Arrey! Armaan nahi aaya!
She came to her locker and was about to open it when a pair of strong hands pulled her into the changing room. She punched the person holding her with her elbow.
Armaan: (leaving her and holding his chest) Aaaaooh!!
Ridhimaa turned around and found Armaan clutching his yesterday's wound.
Ridhimaa: I am sorry Armaan. I am very sorry.
Armaan looked at her intently and lovingly. She blushed.
Armaan: Kya yaar! Mujhe chot de dekar hi tumhe pyar aata hai na?
Armaan: Oye hoye! Agar ye baat hai to main zindagi bhar chot khaane ke liye tayyar hoon bas shart ye hai ki tum isi tarah pyar se meri chot theek karo.
Saying so, he tried to hold her but accidentally his elbow brushed against the door.
Ridhimaa held his elbow and kissed it too. Armaan was estatic.
Ridhimaa: Bas theek ho gayi chot?
Armaan: Nahi. Abhi aate waqt na mera ye haath car ke darwaaze me fans gaya tha. Bahut dard ho raha hai.
He was showing her his right palm, but there was no trace of any wound. Ridhimaa knew what was on his mind. He wanted her care, affection and love. She took his palm and put her lips to it and kissed.
Ridhimaa: Ab theek?
Armaan: Wo na kal jab itni upar se main gira tha na to yahan par bhi lagi thi.
He pointed to his forehead. Ridhimaa kissed him there.
Ridhimaa: Aur kahin to nahi lagi?
Armaan: (showing her his tattoo) Jab tattoo banwaya tha na tab bhi bahut dard hua tha.
Ridhimaa caressed the tattoo with her lips and turned to go. He held her back.
Ridhimaa: Kya hua?
Armaan: Wo kal yahan par bhi bahut tez chot lagi thi. Yahan...
He was now pointing to his lips. Ridhimaa blushed.
Ridhimaa: (looking down) Armaan!
Armaan: (lifting her face) Sach me. Dekho na.
They were very near. Their noses were an inch apart. Armaan looked into Ridhimaa's jet black eyes. Ridhimaa too looked into his blue ones. Both were entranced by each other's presence. Armaan's one hand was on Ridhimaa's back and the other was in her sweet smelling hair. Ridhimaa was also holding Armaan's face with her hand. Their lips were about to meet when Ridhimaa shook her face. Armaan understood and was about to leave her when somebody banged into them. Both jumped apart and looked at the intruder.
Rahul: (looking up at them and surprised on finding them both there) Arrey. Tum dono yahan?
Armaan: (disgruntled) Kyun? Hum yahan nahi aa sakte kya?
Ridhimaa was getting embarrassed. She quickly moved out of there and proceeded to her locker. The other interns too entered the locker room and Armaan and Rahul emerged from the changing room.
Rahul: (slyly) Tum dono kar kya rahe the?
Armaan: (aroused) Tujhse matlab?
Atul: (catching up) Kaun dono? Kahan? Kya kar rahe the?
Rahul: (exaggerating) Yahi Armaan aur Ridhimaa. Dono pata nahi changing room me jaaney kya kya kar rahe the.
Ridhimaa's face reddened with shame and disgrace which Rahul had unknowingly put her into.
Anjali: (not believing her ears) What?
Ridhimaa was gripping her locker tight and her tears were wetting her cheeks. But nobody except Armaan noticed it.
Atul: Rahul. Tu sach keh raha hai?
Rahul: Pata hai Ridhimaa aur Armaan...
He could not continue because Armaan had held his hand and turned Rahul towards him.
Nobody mistook the anger in Armaan's face.
Armaan: (in an expertly controlled voice) Rahul. Tujhe mere baare me jo bolna hai bol lekin Ridhimaa ka naam beech me mat la.
Rahul: (now noticing his mistake) Chill yaar! Main to bas mazaak kar raha tha...
Armaan: Mazaak kar bhi raha tha to usme tune Ridhimaa ka naam kyun liya. Dekh uski taraf.
They all looked at Ridhimaa who was crying out of embarrassement.
Armaan: Tum logon ko mujhse, mere baare me jo bhi kehna hai kaho lekin please Ridhimaa ko isse door rakho. Mujhe is sabse koi fark nahi padta lekin Ridhimaa ko fark padta hai. Bahut fark padta hai. Aur Anjali. Tum to Ridhimaa ki behen ho, use bahut achhi tarah se jaanti ho fir bhi...
Anjali: (going up to Ridhimaa and hugging her) I am sorry Ridz.
Ridhimaa: (wiping her tears) It's OK di.
Rahul: (going to Ridhimaa himself, feeling very guilty) Sorry Ridhimaa. Main to bas...
Ridhimaa: It's OK. Par please aagey se aisi baat nahi karna.
Rahul: Mujhe kya Armaan se pitna hai jo main fir ye galti karoonga?
Muskaan: Tera koi bharosa?
Armaan: Aur haan. Aaj mujhe ek baat clear karni hai. Tum sab log sun lo. Tum log mere baare me kuch bhi keh sakte ho kyunki main aisa hi hoon jo aisi harkaten kar sakta hai. Mujhe isse koi problem nahi hai. Lekin Ridhimaa aisi ladki nahi hai. And I respect her feelings. So please...
Atul: Arrey yaar tu to serious ho gaya.
Armaan: It is a serious matter Atul. Kisi ladki ke liye uski izzat bahut important hoti hai. Isiliye aaj maine faisla kiya hai ki main Ridhimaa ke zyada kareeb aane ki koshish nahi karoonga. Pata nahi kaun kya matlab nikaal le. Aur main nahi chahta ki meri wajah se Ridhimaa ko fir ye sab sunna pade.
He took his file and coat from his locker, banged it shut and moved out of the room, leaving the others amazed.
At the nurse station. Armaan was avoiding touch with Ridhimaa. This all made the other interns feel guilty with their morning's behaviour.
Kirti: Interns. Go back to your work except Dr.Armaan and Dr.Ridhimaa.
The others go to their respective duties.
Kirti: Dr.Armaan, Dr.Ridhimaa. Aap dono ko kal Lonavla ke liye nikalna hai. Aap apna samaan kal yahan Sanjeevani le aiyega. Fir shaam ko yahi se nikal jaiyega. Is it clear?
Both: Yes mam.
Kirti goes away. Ridhimaa was about to say something to Armaan.
Armaan: Ridhimaa. Tumse door rehne se mera pyar thode hi kam hoga. Wo kehte hain na..." Absence makes the heart grow fonder".
Ridhimaa: Lekin Armaan... Rahul to bas mazaak kar raha tha.
Armaan: To tum ro kyun rahi thi? Ridhimaa main nahi chahta ki tumhari aankhon me kabhi bhi meri wajah se aansun aayen. Isliye please... but I promise ki har zaroorat ke waqt me main tumhare saath rahunga.
Ridhimaa: Mujhe kabhi tumhari zaroorat nahi padegi.
Armaan: (shocked) Kyun?
Ridhimaa: Kyunki zaroorat ka rishta ek din khatm ho jaata hai. Aur main nahi chahti ki humare beech ka rishta kabhi khatm ho. Main ek baar fir kehti hoon ki tumhari koi galti nahi hai. Isliye tum guilty feel karna chod do.
After saying so, she left from there, leaving a very puzzled Armaan behind.
In the lunch time, in canteen.
Armaan was sitting on a table. The other interns approached him and pull their chairs.
Atul: Hey Armaan. Kya kar raha hai?
Armaan: Bas kuch soch raha hoon.
Rahul: Armaan maine kaha na I am sorry. Ab to Ridhimaa ne bhi mujhe maaf kar diya. Tu kyun gussa baitha hai?
Armaan: Main gussa nahi hoon Rahul. Bas main kuch soch raha hoon.
Ridhimaa: Kya soch rahe ho?
Armaan: Yahi ki main khaane ko kya order karoon.
Muskaan: Le! Mujhe laga ki pata nahi kaun si important baat soch raha tha.
Anjali: Waise kal tum log Lonavla ja rahe ho na?
Ridhimaa: Armaan! Wo main...
Armaan looked at her enquiringly but she did not speak any further.
Anjali: Wo Ridz ye kehna chahti hai ki tum na usse itna door mat raho. Wo bahut miss karti hai tumhe. Tum fir se pehle waale Armaan nahi ban sakte? Tum baaki sab ki chinta kyun kar rahe ho? Ridz ko unki koi chinta nahi.
He looked at Ridhimaa. She nodded and blushed. Armaan smiled.
Armaan: Theek hai. Main bhi kahan reh pa raha tha isse door.
Rahul: Ye hui na baat! Armaan tu ab to mujhse gussa nahi hai na?
Armaan: Armaan Mallik to sirf pyar karna jaanta hai. Hai na basket?
Ridhimaa blushed deeply.
That day in the evening. Armaan was looking at his punctured car.
Armaan: (to himself) Ab ye kya hua?
Ridhimaa: (coming up to him) Kya hua Armaan?
Armaan looked at her.
Armaan: Puncture ho gayi. Lekin abhi thodi der pehle to theek thi. Main check kar ke gaya tha.
Ridhimaa: (in a crafty voice) Oh! Bahut bura hua. Tchh... tchh...
Armaan glared at her. He understood her mischief.
Armaan: To ye aapka kaam hai?
Ridhimaa: (laughing) Pata hai, mujhe bachpan se car puncture karne me bahut maza aata hai. Kabhi kabhi chupke se papa ki car bhi puncture kar deti thi. Lekin kabhi pakdi nahi gayi. Tumhe kaise pata chala?
Armaan: Wo ye jo tumhara chehra hai na, wo mere liye ek mirror ki tarah hai. Pata nahi itni saari shararat tumhare is bhole se chehre ke peeche kaise chip jaati hai?
Ridhimaa laughed heartily.
Armaan: Ab khi...khi... karna band karo. Mere liye itni badi pareshaani khadi kar di. Kal hi car theek karayi thi aur aaj tumne kharab kar di. Main ghar kaise jaunga?
Ridhimaa: Mere saath meri car me. Actually mom ne kaha tha tumhe apne saath laane ke liye isliye maine...
Armaan: Oh! To mom ne kaha tha ki meri car puncture karke apne saath laane ke liye? Main unse poochunga.
Ridhimaa: (scared) Armaan unse kuch mat kehna. Unhone to bas tumhe apne saath laane ke liye kaha tha car to maine khud hi...
She was looking guilty. Armaan pinched both her cheeks.
Armaan: Tum aise itni cute lag rahi ho na ek dum choti si bachhi ki tarah.
Ridhimaa: Armaan! Apni car lock karke yahan garage me rakh do aur mere saath chalo.
Armaan did so.
Armaan: Main drive karoon?
Ridhimaa: Nahi. Main apni car kisiko chhoone bhi nahi deti.
Armaan: Mujhe bhi nahi?
Ridhimaa: Kyunki ye car mere ek bahut hi special friend ne di hai. Aur main ise humesha khud hi chalaungi.
Armaan: (with fake anger) Achha. Kaun hai wo dost zara batao to.
Ridhimaa: Hai koi. Jo mujhse bahut pyar karta hai.
Armaan: Uski ye himmat ki wo tumhe aankh utha kar dekhe. Main use chodunga nahi.
Ridhimaa: Aye! Mere dost ko kuch mat karna... warna...
Armaan: (towering over her) Warna?
Ridhimaa got nervous. She got into the driving seat. Armaan sat in the front seat, smiling to himself.
Armaan: Waise basket. Mujhe aaj tumhari ek baat bahut achhi lagi.
Armaan: Wo ye ki tum mujhse do ghante bhi door nahi reh saki.
Ridhimaa: Main to tumse ek pal bhi door nahi reh sakti.
Armaan: Fir... fir tumne mujhse door jaane ka faisla kaise kar liya?
Ridhimaa: (seriously) Tumhare liye.
Armaan: (gazing at her) Tum mujhse bahut pyar karti ho na?
Ridhimaa: Bahut! Aur tum?
Armaan: Tum batao.
Ridhimaa looked at him and blushed on seeing the amount of love which was easily visible in his eyes. Armaan took his own photograph from the dashboard and kept it inside the drawer.
Ridhimaa: Ye kya kar rahe ho? Waapas rakho use.
Armaan: Nahi. Tumne itne saare superstitions kyun paale hue hain? Tum khud par confidence karna kab seekhogi?
Ridhimaa: (pleading) Armaan please!
Armaan: Nahi. Ab ye photo yahan nahi lagegi. Tumhe apne aap sab seekhna hoga.
Ridhimaa: Armaan. Main car nahi chala paungi.
Ridhimaa: Mujhe darr lagega.
Armaan: Koi darr-warr nahi lagega. Dekho tum kitne achhe se drive kar rahi ho.
Ridhimaa: Wo to tum saath me baithe ho isiliye.
Armaan: Ridhimaa. Tumhe mujh par bharosa hai?
Armaan: Aur mujhe tum par bharosa hai ki tum koi bhi kaam kar sakti ho. Tum mera bharosa nahi todogi na?
Ridhimaa: Nahi. Kabhi nahi.
Armaan: To fir ye photo waapas mat lagana. Khud par vishwaas karke mere vishwaas ko jitana. Karogi na aisa?
Armaan: Good girl.
Ridhimaa: Tum meri har problem kitni asaani se solve kar dete ho na.
Armaan: Of course. I am Armaan Mallik. I can do anything.
Ridhimaa: Tum mere saath ho to main bhi kuch bhi kar sakti hoon.
Armaan: Aur jab main nahi rahoonga, is duniya se chala jaunga tab?
Ridhimaa applied the brakes suddenly. Armaan looked at her. She was not tearful. She wasn't crying. Armaan was a little surprised. He had thought that she would react very badly to this. But Ridhimaa's face was set.
Ridhimaa: Armaan. Tum batao agar yahi sawaal main tumse poocnhun to?
Ridhimaa: Yahi ki agar kabhi main is duniya me na rahun to...
Ridhimaa: Kya hua?
Armaan: Tum aisa soch bhi kaise sakti ho ki...
He shudderred at the thought.
Armaan: Main tumhe tumhare khuda se ladkar bhi chheen launga. Mere jeeteji main tumhe kuch nahi hone doonga.
Ridhimaa: (starting the car again) To Armaan main bhi apne jeeteji tumhe kuch nahi hone doongi. Main tumse pehle hi...
Armaan: Ridhimaa. Tumhare saath tumhara poora parivaar hai. Mere saath kaun hai. Mere marne se kisiko koi fark nahi padega... lekin agar tumhe kuch bhi ho gaya to tumhari family ko bhi affect hoga. Tum ye kyun nahi sochti? Ek insaan ke na rehne se tumhari zindagi khatm nahi ho jaati. Tumhe doosron ke liye jeena hoga.
Ridhimaa: Aur tumhe mere liye jeena hoga.
Her voice was full of determination. Armaan could not argue further. He smiled vaguely. Till then, they had reached Ridhimaa's house.
Inside the house.
Padma: Armaan aaj dinner karke jaana.
Armaan: Par main... mujhe bhookh nahi hai.
Nani: Kaise bhookh nahi hai? Chalo seedhi tarah se baith jao. Warna...
Anjali: Agar tumhe bhookh nahi thi to tum Ridz ke saath aaye kyun? Usse to mom ne kaha tha ki tumhe dinner ke liye invite kare.
Armaan glared at Ridhimaa.
Armaan: Ye jo tumhari Ridz hai na mujhe yahan tak kidnap kake lekar aayi hai aur isne mujhe bataya tak nahi ki mujhe kyun bulaya gaya hai.
Shashank: Kidnap karke?
Armaan: Ji. Meri iklauti car bhi puncture ho gayi. Kal Lonavla bhi bus se jaana padega.
Ridhimaa: Meri car to hai na...
Armaan: Ji nahi. Aapka bahut bahut shukriya. Na tum mujhe apni car drive karne dogi na main tumhe poori raat drive karne doonga. Ab bus ke dhakke khana.
Nani: Haan to theek hai na. Waise bhi kaun poori raat drive kar payega.
Shashank: Haan. Aur lautte waqt wahan par tumhe car mil jaayegi. Usse aa jaana.
Armaan: OK sir.
Next evening in the locker room. Armaan and Ridhimaa were taking everyone's leave.
Atul: (hugging Armaan) Bye yaar Armaan. Take care. Tere bina bilkul bhi mann nahi lagega.
Armaan: Thanks Champ. Lekin main kewal teen din ke liye hi to ja raha hoon.
Rahul: Haan Atul. Teen dino baad fir se ye hum sab ke sir par haazir ho jayega.
Armaan: (turning towards Rahul) To kya nahi aaun kya?
Rahul: Arrey maine aisa kab kaha? Hum tujhe sach me bahut miss karenge.
Muskaan was huging Ridhimaa.
Muskaan: Yaar Ridhimaa. Jaldi aana.
Ridhimaa: Ab duty ke baad hi to aa paungi.
Anjali: Ridz! Take care. We will miss you.
Ridhimaa: (hugging her sister) Me too di. Kaash hum sab log ek saath Lonavla jaate to kitna maza aata na?
Anjali: Haan Ridz. Lekin tum jao aur haan zyada ladayi mat karna.
Ridhimaa: Di. Main kab ladayi karti hoon?
All stared at her.
Ridhimaa: Mera matlab hai ki...
Atul: Ridz. Do din me teen baar to tum aur Armaan ladte rehte ho. Yahan to fir bhi hum log hain tum dono ke saath.
Rahul: Pata nahi Lonavla me tum dono ka kya hoga?
Muskaan: Haan. Agar tum me se koi bhadak gaya aur doosra bhi gussa ho gaya to?
Armaan: Don't worry guys. Aisa kuch nahi hoga.
Rahul: Ye tu keh raha hai?
Armaan: Nahi ye wall keh rahi hai. Kyun?
Rahul: Kyunki tu bhi koi kam to hai nahi. Pata nahi kab kya dhamki de de Ridhimaa ko. Agar tu kahin gussa hokar chod chad kar chala gaya to...
Anjali: To Ridz to bechari akeli ho jayegi.
Armaan: Main aisa thode hi karoonga.
Anjali: Fir bhi Ridz apna dhyan rakhna.
Muskaan: Haan. Aur phone karte rehna. Tum dono ke bina to bahut boring ho jayega.
Armaan: Hum log koi circus ka show karte hain jo humare bina sab boring ho jayega?
Atul: Ridz ka to pata nahi lekin tu to zaroor comedy karta rehta hai.
Just then they were interrupted as Dr.Kirti summoned them.
Armaan: Basket! Chalo. Hitler ka bulaava aa gaya. Bye guys.
At the nurse station, Kirti was addressing both of them.
Kirti: Dr.Armaan, Dr.Ridhimaa. Aap dono ready hain?
Both: Yes mam.
Kirti: Good. Aap log ja sakte hain. Aur haan. Koi problem ho to mujhe ya Dr.Shashank ko phone zaroor kar dijiyega. Now go. Good luck!
Shubhankar: Ek minute Dr.Kirti. Main Dr.Armaan se thodi si baat kar loon?
Kirti: Haan lekin jaldi. Inki bus ka time ho raha hai.
Shubhankar takes Armaan to a corner.
Armaan: Yes sir.
Shubhankar: I just wanted to say... best of luck.
Shubhankar: Dr.Armaan. Ye jo aapko Dr.Ridhimaa ke saath time spend karne ko mila hai, use it well. Ye chance aapko shayad hi dubaara mile.
Armaan: Kya matlab?
Shubhankar: Matlab ye ki pichle dino me jo kuch hua, us sab ko bhula dene ka aapke pass ek achha mauka hai. Ise gavaiyega nahi. Saari misunderstandings clear kar lijiyega aur apne pyar ko badhaane ki koshish kijiyega. Are you understanding what I am trying to say?
Armaan: (nodding) Yes sir. And thank you sir for the advice.
Shubhankar: (smiling) No problem. Bas aap koi galti mat kijiyega jaise maine ki. Lateness ki. Aur aaj tak dekhiye main wahin hoon. Achha bye.
Armaan: Bye sir. And don't worry. Wahan se lautte hi sabse pehle main aapki love story complete karne ki koshish karunga.
Shubhankar grinned. Armaan went towards Ridhimaa and they both go to the exit together. Outside Sanjeevani, Shashank was waiting in his car. Both sit down and Shashank started the car.
Shashank: Kya hua? Tum dono bahut chup chup se ho.
Ridhimaa: Papa. Hum log akele Lonavla ja rahe hain. Bahut bura lag raha hai. Saare friends to Sanjeevani me ek saath rahenge aur hum dono Lonavla me.
Shashank: Tum logon ke saare friends yahan honge aur tum dono Lonavla me ek doosre ke saath. Ye bhi to socho.
Armaan and Ridhimaa looked at each other and both blush deeply.
Shashank: Lo pahunch gaye bus stop. Dekho tum logon ki bus bhi jaane waali hai.
They all step down with their luggage. Armaan deposits the luggage on a seat. Ridhimaa hugs her father.
Ridhimaa: (with tears sparkling in her eyes) Bye Papa.
Shashank: Bye Ridhimaa. Don't cry and be a good girl. OK?
Armaan too came up to him and Shashank shook hands with him.
Shashank: Armaan. Meri is paagal si beti ka khayal rakhna.
Armaan: Of course sir. Aapki ye paagal si beti mujhe bhi bahut pyari hai.
Shashank smiled while Ridhimaa glared at him. Just then their bus started to move. Armaan and Ridhimaa ran and jumped onto it. They leaned out of the door and bid Shahshank good-bye till he was out of sight. Suddenly Ridhimaa's foot slipped and Armaan pulled her towards him with the speed of lightening. Ridhimaa was jammed against his broad chest and the other passengers stared at the pair.
Some passengers whistled.
A young girl: Lo aa gaye humare Romeo and Juliet.
A newly married woman: Hello. Mera naam Juhi hai. Meri abhi abhi shaadi hui hai aur aapki shaadi kab hui?
Ridhimaa: Ji? Humari shaadi? Nahi. Hum dono to Sanjeevani ke doctors hain. Humari shaadi nahi hui.
A middle-aged woman: Abhi nahi hui to kab karne ka iraada hai?
Armaan: Ji Aunty?
He and Ridhimaa moved towards the only empty seat. It was in full view of others. Armaan set the luggage and offered Ridhimaa the window seat. He sits beside her.
Juhi's husband: (extending his hand towards Armaan) Hello. I am Sahil. Juhi's husband.
Armaan: (taking his hand) Dr.Armaan Mallik.
Juhi: (to Ridhimaa) Aap Dr.Ridhimaa ho na?
Ridhimaa: (pleasantly surprised) Ji. Lekin aapko kaise pata?
Saahil: Humne TV par Dr.Armaan ka interview dekha tha. Usme aapko bhi to mention kiya tha.
Juhi: Aap wahi Ridhimaa ho na jiske liye Dr.Armaan ne kaha tha ki aapko koi garam hava bhi chookar na jaaye?
Ridhimaa blushed deeply. Armaan was amazed.
Juhi: Sach! Aap dono ko dekh kar hi hum logon ne shaadi karne ka faisla kiya tha lekin aap dono ne abhi tak shaadi kyun nahi ki?
Armaan: Ji... wo hum dono... wo Ridhimaa thak gayi hai. Hai na Ridhimaa?
Ridhimaa: Haan. Mujhe neend aa rahi hai.
Armaan: To tum so jao.
Ridhimaa leans her head against the window and closes her eyes. Juhi and Saahil too face the front. Armaan shakes Ridhimaa slightly.
Armaan: (whispering) Basket! Tumhe bhookh lagi hai?
Ridhimaa: (opening her eyes) Haan. Par maine khana pack nahi kiya.
Armaan: (handing her his tiffin) Ye lo. Main canteen se pack karwa kar laaya hoon.
She eats. Then after finishing the food, she suddenly remembers.
Ridhimaa: Armaan. Tumhe bhi to bhookh lagi hogi. Lekin maine saara kha liya.
Armaan: (trying to assure her, though his stomach was aching with hunger) Nahi. Mujhe bhookh nahi lagi thi.
Ridhimaa: Achha. Tab theek hai.
She again closes her eyes. The lights too dimmed down. Nearly all were asleep. Only Armaan was not able to sleep because of hunger. Ridhimaa's head rolled onto his shoulder. Armaan turned his face towards her. She looked so innocent while she slept. He planted a kiss on her hair. Then he too closed his eyes and rested his head against the back of his seat. In minutes, he was asleep.
Next morning at 2:00 a.m. Ridhimaa woke up suddenly. She looked around. Her head was resting on Armaan's shoulder while he was resting his head at the back of his seat. Ridhimaa was feeling guilty as she had been sleeping comfortably while Armaan was sleeping in such an awkward position. No one else was looking at them. The bus was moving at a slow pace. Ridhimaa took Armaan's hand into hers. Love was emnating through her. She could not think of anyone else, even her parents, who had cared about her so much. Armaan was sleeping deeply. But on his face was his never vanishing smile. Ridhimaa kissed his hand and put it to her heart. Just then Armaan's mobile beeped. There were many unread messages. One was from Anjali. She picked up his mobile and opened Anjali's message.
Anjali's Message: Armaan. Ridz khana le jaana bhool gayi hai. Usko khila dena aur tum bhi kha lena. Tumne bhi subah se kuch nahi khaya hai. Ok. Take care both of u.
Ridhimaa held her head. Armaan had lied to her. He himself had not eaten anything since morning and he had given his food to Ridhimaa without once complaining and had assured her that he was not hungry. She was angry with him, but her anger vanished as she glanced at him. How much he loved her! She was so gratified that Armaan was in her life. How could she even have dreamt of going away from him? She tousled his hair and kissed him on the forehead. Then she put his mobile back and rested her head against the back of her seat, closing her eyes. It took few minutes for her to get asleep. Her head again rolled onto Armaan's shoulder and she unknowingly put her hand on his chest, hugging him close. Armaan too, comfortable in this position, rested his head against her, still in a deep sleep.
Armaan: (mumbling in his sleep) I love you Ridhimaa...
In the morning, at 8:00 a.m. Armaan woke up after a full night's sleep. They had still not reached Lonavla. Armaan felt someone's hands covering him and quickly opened his eyes. Ridhimaa was sleeping on his shoulder, and her arms were around his chest. Armaan did not want to wake her up. So he let her sleep. He just gazed at her sleeping face. The other passengers had woken up. Armaan looked around. Many of them were staring at him and Ridhimaa lovingly. He smiled. Juhi turned her head back. She was very lively and chirpy and was very happy on seeing Armaan and Ridhimaa so close together.
Juhi: Arrey aap uth gaye?
Juhi: Mujhe to bus me neend hi nahi aati. Saahil ko bhi nahi aati.
Saahil too turned around. Now Armaan was feeling embarrassed on finding himself in a continuous glare.
Armaan: Neend to kisiko bhi bus me nahi aati. Lekin adjust to karna hi padta hai.
Juhi: Dekho Saahil. Dr.Armaan, Dr.Ridhimaa ko kitne pyar se apne shoulder par sone de rahe hain. Aur inki to abhi tak shaadi bhi nahi hui. Aur ek tum ho, jo shaadi ke baad bhi mujhe ek inch bhi zyada jagah nahi de sakte. Raat bhar so nahi paayi.
Saahil: Main bhi kahan soya? Ab har koi Dr.Armaan thode hi ho sakta hai. Lekin main bhi kuch kam nahi hoon.
He looked at Juhi, who flushed. Armaan smiled.
Juhi: Aap inko uthaate kyun nahi? Subah ho gayi hai.
Armaan: (embarrassed and not wanting to wake Ridhimaa himself) Main kaise utha sakta hoon? Sone dijiye. Apne aap uth jayegi.
Juhi: Oho! To aap sharmate bhi hain. Chaliye. Hum utha dete hain. Aap bhi kya yaad karenge.
Without listening to Armaan's pleas, Juhi shook Ridhimaa who woke up with a start.
Juhi: Aapke Armaan aapke pass hain.
Armaan: (whispering in her ears) Basket! Mujhe chod do. Sab log ghoor rahe hain.
Ridhimaa found that she had been holding Armaan. She quickly took her hands off her chest. She was very embarrassed. Juhi and Saahil were watching the pair intently. Then finding that they both were uncomfortable, they looked back in front, leaving Armaan and Ridhimaa to themselves. Armaan heaved a sigh of relief.
Armaan: Wo maine inko mana kiya tha tumhe uthane se par Mrs.Juhi nahi maani.
Ridhimaa looked at him. He was concerned about her sleep.
Ridhimaa: Mujhe pata hi nahi chala ki... I am sorry.
Armaan: (surprised) Kyun? Mujhe to bahut achha lag raha tha.
Ridhimaa turned scarlet.
Armaan: Kya hua Armaan ki jaan?
Ridhimaa was shocked at being addressed like this. She turned a deeper shade of scarlet.
Ridhimaa: Armaan! Ab tum had se zyada...
Ridhimaa: You should be. Lekin kisi aur baat ke liye.
Armaan: Kaun si baat ke liye?
Ridhimaa: Tumne mujhse jhooth kyun bola?
She had been unnecessarily loud. The other passengers stared at them. Juhi and Saahil too looked back at them.
Armaan: (his voice going up an octave) Maine kab tumse jhooth bola?
Ridhimaa: Achha. Raat ko tumne kya kaha tha?
Armaan: (not having the slightest idea) Ab kya kaha tha?
Ridhimaa: Yahi ki tumhe bhookh nahi hai.
Armaan: Oh! To?
Ridhimaa: Armaan. Tumne subah se kuch nahi khaya tha. Maine to fir bhi breakfast aur lunch kiya tha. Fir bhi tumne apne liye pack karwaya hua tiffin mujhe de diya aur khud bhookhe rahe. Kyun?
Juhi and Saahil were smiling. The other passengers too had smiles on their faces seeing the love between the pair.
Armaan: Wo main... wo...
Ridhimaa: Mujhe to pata bhi nahi chalta agar maine di ka message nahi dekha hota. Tumne aisa kyun kiya? At least mujhe bata to sakte the. Hum dono share karke kha lete.
Armaan: Par tumhe bhookh lag rahi thi na to isliye...
Ridhimaa: Aur jo tumhe bhookh lag rahi thi? Tum poora din bhookhe rahe. Har waqt apni manmaani karte rehte ho.
Armaan: (flaring up) Basket. Meri marzi thi. Main chahe jo karoon.
Ridhimaa: (also flaring up) Har cheez me tumhari marzi nahi chalegi.
Armaan: Tumse to baat karna hi bekaar hai.
Ridhimaa: Mujhe bhi tumse koi baat nahi karni.
Armaan: (standing up) To mat karo. Main tumse baat karne ke liye mara thode hi ja raha hoon.
He went to Juhi.
Armaan: Aap please meri seat par jaakar baith jayengi? Koi hai jo mujhse baat nahi karna chahta.
Juhi went and sat with Ridhimaa while Armaan sat with Saahil.
Both Armaan and Ridhimaa were not talking to each other. Juhi and Saahil were trying to make very forced conversation between them. The bus stopped.
Saahil: Juhi. Humara stop aa gaya.
She stood up.
Saahil: Aap dono se milkar bahut achha laga.
Armaan: Hume bhi.
Juhi hugged Ridhimaa and then stepped out of the bus. Two more passengers entered the bus. A young boy and a young girl. The girl was Mallika, Padma and Shashank's wedding planner. She saw Armaan and rushed and occupied the seat beside him. The boy went up to Ridhimaa.
Boy: Miss Gupta.
Ridhimaa: (looking up) Tum... tum Aakash ho na? Baitho.
Aakash: (sitting down) Thanks.
Mallika: (to Armaan who was looking out of the window) Hello handsome!
Armaan: (turning towards her and exclaiming) Mallika!
Mallika: Yes. Tum to shaadi ke baad mile hi nahi.
Armaan: Wo main thoda busy tha.
Mallika: Lekin apno ke liye to waqt nikaal lena chahiye. Wo bhi ek khoobsurat ladki ke liye.
Ridhimaa flared up. Mallika was flirting with Armaan. How dare she?
Aakash: Kya hua?
Ridhimaa: Kuch nahi.
Ridhimaa: Ye aap... aap kya laga rakha hai? College se aaj tak badle hi nahi kya?
Aakash: (grinning) Nahi. Aur aap... I mean tum Ridhimaa?
Armaan was overhearing their conversation.
Ridhimaa: Tum khud dekh lo.
Aakash: Waise kahan ja rahi ho? Wo bhi apni Di ke bina?
Ridhimaa: Lonavla. Wahan Sanjeevani ka Orphanage hai.
Aakash: Oh haan. Tumhara to Sanjeevani me selection ho gaya tha. Aakhir topper jo thi. Anjali bhi wahin hai?
Ridhimaa: Haan. You remember her?
Aakash: Haan thoda bahut.
Ridhimaa: Thoda ki bahut?
Aakash: Ridhimaa. Ab main bhool gaya hoon wo sab. Bas waqti infatuation hi to tha.
Ridhimaa: Mujhe pata hai. Lekin tumne Di ko propose bhi to kiya tha.
Aakash: Tumhare kehne par. Fir usne jo thappad maara tha wo...
Both start laughing remembering the old days. Armaan turned around and glared at them.
Armaan: (hotly) Basket. Thoda dheere hanso. Baaki logon ko disturb ho raha hai.
Mallika too turned around.
Mallika: Oh! Ridhimaa. Tum bhi ho. How are you?
Mallika turned towards front once again. Armaan was still glaring at Ridhimaa.
Ridhimaa: (replying back) Meri marzi. Main jitna hasun. Tumhe koi problem ho to apne kaan band kar lo.
Mallika turned Armaan towards her.
Mallika: Leave it. Armaan. Tum batao... mujhe miss kiya?
Ridhimaa: Dr.Armaan Mallik. Mere co-intern.
Aakash: Sach! Ye Dr.Armaan Mallik hain? Inki to newspaper me photo chhapi thi.
He tapped Armaan's shoulder who looked at him.
Aakash: Ridhimaa ne bataya ki aap Dr.Armaan Mallik ho. I am very pleased to meet you.
Armaan: (lying) Same here.
Aakash: Main Ridhimaa aur Anjali ka college me classmate tha.
Aakash: Aap to Ridhimaa ko zyada achhe se nahi jaan paaye honga. Ye kisi se jaldi free hi kahan hoti hai. College me bhi kewal Anjali se chipki rehti thi.
Aakash: Waise my name is Dr.Aakash Chopra.
Ridhimaa: Aakash. Mere se bhi to baat karo.
Aakash: (staring at her) Tum to sach me badal gayi ho.
Armaan: Log bahut jaldi badal jaate hain. Hai na?
Ridhimaa's face whitened. She thought that Armaan was blaming her for the past incidents. Tears welled up in her eyes. Armaan had till then turned to face the front again.
Ridhimaa did not speak lest she should betray her tears.
Ridhimaa: (in a wet voice) Hmm...
Aakash: Abhi to mujhse keh rahi thi ki main tumse baat karun... ab tum khud hi nahi bol rahi.
Ridhimaa kept mum. She had again started feeling guilty. Armaan didn't even know what he had said. He was talking to Mallika.
Mallika: Tum kahan ja rahe ho?
Armaan: Lonavla ke Sanjeevani Orphanage.
Mallika: Oh. Main to agle stop par utar jaungi.
Armaan was pleased to hear that.
Mallika: Tum mujhe company nahi doge?
Mallika: Aise hi.
Armaan got nervous. He started wishing for the next stop to arrive as fast as it could. He was itching to talk to Ridhimaa.
Ridhimaa's tears were flowing down her cheeks. Aakash was shocked to see her crying.
Aakash: (loudly) Arrey. Ridhimaa. Kya hua tumhe?
Armaan and Mallika too looked back. Armaan was deeply hurt at seeing Ridhimaa crying.
Ridhimaa cries increased on hearing Armaan's voice. Armaan stood up from his seat.
Mallika: Kya hua? Tum kahan ja rahe ho?
Armaan: Please. Leave my way.
Mallika was shocked at his cold, hard tone. She left his way. Armaan came up to Ridhimaa. Just then the bus stopped. Mallika threw a contemptuos look at Ridhimaa and got down at the bus stop. Ridhimaa was still crying hard. Aakash was afraid what had happened to her. Armaan gestured to Aakash to exchange seats with him. Aakash came up front. Armaan sat on his place. The other passengers were also wondering what had happened to Ridhimaa. Aakash too was looking back to see what Armaan would do now. Ridhimaa didn't even notice that Armaan had got in the seat next to her. Armaan turned Ridhimaa's face towards him with his fingers. Ridhimaa knew this touch. It couldn't be anyone else's but Armaan's. Aakash was shocked on seeing the closeness between the pair.
Armaan: Ridhimaa... kya hua?
Ridhimaa tried to turn her face away from him but he held her hand.
Armaan: Ridhimaa... kisi ne kuch kaha? Aakash ne ya fir kisi aur ne....
Ridhimaa shook her head in disagreement.
Armaan: To fir?
Ridhimaa kept mum. Aakash was looking at both of them. He had never ever seen Ridhimaa Gupta getting close to a boy.
Armaan: Ridhimaa. Batao na kya hua?
Ridhimaa: Ku... kuch... kuch nahi.
Her sobs were interfering with her speech and were wrenching Armaan's heart apart.
Armaan: (authorotatively) Ridhimaa. Rona band karo.
Ridhimaa loked up at him. He too was in deep pain on seeing her tears. She wondered why she always used to hurt Armaan in one way or the other. She wiped off her tears.
Armaan: Tum ro kyun rahi thi? Aakash ne kuch nahi kaha, kisi aur ne bhi kuch nahi kaha fir...
He stopped and then a thought struck his mind.
Armaan: Ridhimaa. Maine tumse jo kaha tum uski wajah se...
Ridhimaa could not control her tears anymore. She put her arms around Armaan and completely broke down. Aakash was pleasantly surprised. Armaan was thrown off-balance.
Ridhimaa: I... I am sorry... main tumse... door nahi jaana chahti thi... lekin... meri majboori thi... tumne mujhe abhi tak maaf nahi kiya... main badli nahi thi... bas halaat... halaat badal gaye the.
Armaan now knew what had been bothering her. He held her tight.
Armaan: Ridhimaa mera wo matlab nahi tha. Maine to sirf ek common baat boli thi. Tumne socha bhi kaise ki main tumhe blame karoonga? How could you?
Ridhimaa looked up at him. He was disappointed that Ridhimaa had misunderstood him.
Armaan: Tum meri wajah se ro rahi ho. Par tum aisa kyun karti ho? Agar maine tumhe hurt kiya hai to tum mujhse lado, mujhe bhala bura bolo, mujhe maar lo... lekin roya mat karo. Tumhe pata hai na ki tumhare aansun mujhe kitni takleef pahunchate hain... fir kyun baar baar...
Ridhimaa wiped off her tears again. Armaan looked at her. She was smiling now.
Armaan: (holding her ears) I am really sorry...
Ridhimaa glared at him and the others laughed.
Armaan: (now holding his own ears) Sorry... I am really sorry.
Ridhimaa removed his hand from his ears.
Armaan: Dekho aadha ghanta lag gaya tumhe manane me. Mallika bhi gussa hokar chali gayi.
Ridhimaa: (angrily, on hearing Mallika's name) To jao na uske peechhe.
Armaan: Tumhe akela chodkar kaise jaun?
Ridhimaa: Kyun? Tumhe kyun meri chinta hone lagi? Tum to apni marzi ke maalik ho na... jo chahe karo.
Armaan: Tum abhi tak mujhse gussa ho?
Ridhimaa: Nahi. Mera tumse kya rishta hai jo gussa hone lagi?
Armaan raised her face and looked into her eyes.
Armaan: Tumhara aur mera koi rishta nahi hai?
Ridhimaa could not tear her gaze away. She blushed.
Armaan: Basket. Yaad aa gaya na rishta?
Ridhimaa went scarlet. Armaan squeezed her into a hug. Aakash spoke finally.
Aakash: Ridhimaa... ye... tum...
Armaan and Ridhimaa both prised themselves away from each other.
Ridhimaa: Wo main... hum dono...
Aakash: Wo to mujhe pata chal gaya hai lekin tumne mujhse ye baat chupayi kyun?
Armaan: (voicing his fear) Tumhe bura laga ye dekhkar ki hum dono...
Aakash: Mujhe bura kyun lagega? Infact mujhe to khushi hui. Maine college me Ridhimaa ko apni behen jo maana tha... lekin uski wajah se thappad bhi bahut pade the...
Armaan: Kyun bhai? Inke ishq me giraftaar the kya?
Ridhimaa: Ishq me to giraftaar the lekin mere nahi Di ke...
Armaan: Anjy se...
Aakash: Armaan. Bas college ka affair tha. Uski wajah se thappad bhi kha chuka hoon. Ab yaad dilaane ki kya zaroorat hai? Main apni married life se khush hoon.
Ridhimaa: What? Tumne shaadi kar li? Kissey?
Aakash: Ruchi se. Yaad hai na? College me humare saath padhti thi. Uska ek bhai bhi tha... Karan.
Ridhimaa was horror-struck.
Armaan: Ab Karan kaisa hai?
Aakash: (gravely) Jail me hai. Usne bure kaam shuru kar diye the... you know. Ab humara uske saath koi rishta nahi hai. Ruchi to uski shakal tak nahi dekhna chahti. Uska court case bhi chala tha. Suna hai usne kisi ladki ki photos morph ki thi aur unke badle us ladki ko bulaya tha. They attempted to rape her but... beech me us ladki ka ek friend aa gaya. Usne teeno ki wo pitayi ki... fir teeno ko apne saath car me jail le gaya. Court case me bhi aakar usne gawahi di thi lekin ladki aur uske parivaar waalon ko kuch pata nahi chalne diya. Aaj usi friend ki wajah se us ladki ki zindagi barbaad hone se bach gayi hai aur Karan ko dus saal ki jail hui hai.
Armaan: Bas dus saal ki?
Aakash: Haan. Ruchi bata rahi thi ki wo jo ladka tha na jisne Karan ke khilaaaf gawahi ki thi usne to kaha tha ki kisi ladki ki izzat par haath daalne ke liye aur itne ghinaune kaam ke liye to Karan ko faansi honi chahiye. Lekin Law me aisa kahin nahi likha hai. Isliye dus saal ki jail hui hai.
Just then the bus halted at the next stop. Karan stood up.
Karan: Mera stop aa gaya. Ridhimaa, Armaan take care. Anjali ko bhi meri taraf se hye kehna.
He went down and the bus started again. Ridhimaa looked at Armaan.
Armaan: Kya hua? Aise kyun dekh rahi ho? Fir se ladayi karne ka iraada hai kya?
Ridhimaa: Tum court gaye the?
Armaan: Haan. Inspector Tiwari ne kaha tha ki tumhe ya mujhe wahan jaana padega. To maine socha main hi chala jaata hoon.
Ridhimaa: Tum bahut achhe ho Armaan. Tumne ye sab mere liye kiya?
Armaan: Nahi. Ye sab main har us insaan ke liye karta jise iski zaroorat hoti. Agar tumhari jagah koi aur ladki bhi hoti, tab bhi main yahi karta. Chalo achha hua ki tumhe pata chal gaya ki Karan ko jail ho gayi. Agar mujhe ye pehle pata chal jaata to tumhe koi naatak karne ki zaroorat hi nahi padti. Mujhe to bas ek baat ka dukh hai ki saza kam mili.
Ridhimaa: Armaan. Jo hota hai achhe ke liye hi hota hai.
Armaan: Ho sakta hai.
Ridhimaa: Time kya ho raha hai?
Armaan: Dus baj rahe hain.
Armaan: Arrey isme itna chaunkne waali kya baat hai?
Ridhimaa: Par tumne to kal kuch bhi nahi khaya. Tumhe bahut tez bhookh lag rahi hogi.
Armaan: Haan. Wo to hai. Koi baat nahi. Thodi der me hum log Lonavla pahunch jayenge. Wahan jaakar naashta kar lenge.
Armaan: Ab kya hua?
Ridhimaa: Armaan pata hai? Mujhe kabhi kabhi lagta hai ki main tumhare laayak nahi hoon. Tumhe mujhse bhi achhi ladki se pyar karna chahiye tha.
Ridhimaa: Tum mujhse itna pyar karte ho, mera itna khayal rakhte ho, mere liye kal se bhookhe ho... aur main? Main bina soche samjhe tumse lad padi. Ye bhi nahi socha ki tumko bhookh lag rahi hogi. Main sach me bahut buri hoon na?
Armaan pulled Ridhimaa into a hug.
Armaan: Mere liye to tum hi is duniya ki sabse achhi ladki ho. Nahi to itni ladkiyon ke proposals thukra kar main tumse kyun pyar karta?
Ridhimaa smiled and then rested her head on his shoulder. Ridhimaa's mobile rung up. She picked up the phone.
Ridhimaa: Hello. Papa.
Shashank: Pahunch gaye tum log?
Ridhimaa: Nahi abhi raaste me hain.
Shashank: Anjali ka message mila? Tum dono ne khana to kha liya tha?
Ridhimaa: Wo papa...
Shashank: Kya hua?
Ridhimaa: Wo maine poora khana kha liya aur Armaan ne kal subah se kuch bhi nahi khaya.
Armaan snatched the mobile from Ridhimaa's hands.
Armaan: Hello sir.
Shashank: Tumne kal khana kyun nahi khaya?
Armaan: Sir kal mujhe bhookh nahi thi. Isliye.
Ridhimaa glared at him.
Shashank: Achha. Ab tum mujhse jhooth bhi bologe? Chalo. Lonavla jaakar sabse pehle kha lena. OK? Bye.
The call terminated.
Armaan: Kya hai? Sab log mujhe hi daantte rehte hain. Tumhare papa doctor hain ya jinn? Unhe kaise pata chala ki main jhooth bol raha hoon?
The bus stopped at Lonavla. Armaan stood up and picked up luggage of both of them. They stepped down from the bus and hired a taxi. They reached the Orphanage in fifteen minutes. Both entered. Armaan was carrying the luggage. He was feeling weak due to lack of food. Bua came up towards them. Ridhimaa hugged her.
Bua: Jeeti raho. Khush raho. Arrey, is bandar ko bhi saath le aayi?
She indicated towards Armaan.
Armaan: Namaste Bua.
Bua: Namaste. Chalo. Dono log andar chalo. Thak gaye hoge.
Bua: Aur batao. Sab kaise hain?
Ridhimaa: Sab theek hain. Mom aapko bahut yaad karti hain.
Bua: Tum apne papa ko phone kar do.
Bua: Aur tumhara pyar aagey badha ki abhi tak wahi ho?
Armaan blushed. He kept mum. Ridhimaa came back.
Ridhimaa: Maine papa ko phone kar diya.
Armaan: Bachhe kahan hain?
Bua: Abhi padh rahe hain.
Armaan: Fir hum log unka check up karenge.
Ridhimaa: Haan. Bua. Koi naya bachha to nahi aaya?
Bua: Nahi. Sab wahi hain. Aur sab apne Armaan bhaiya ko bahut yaad karte hain. Pata nahi tumne unpar kya jaadu kar diya hai?
Ridhimaa and Armaan smiled.
Bua: (to Ridhimaa) Tu kyun muskura rahi hai? Kya tujhpe bhi jaadu ne asar kiya hai?
Ridhimaa: Ji? Nahi... nahi to.
Armaan: Achha? To abhi tum par asar hona baaki hai? Kyun basket?
Ridhimaa: Main kisi jaadu-toney ke asar me nahi aati.
Then the children came. All hugged Armaan. Ridhimaa stared at them all. All the kids were ecstatic on meeting Armaan. He too was playing with them. Then they were all divided into two groups. Ridhimaa and Armaan did the check up. All looked fit and fine.
Ridhimaa: Chalo. Sab log apne apne charts ke hisaab se injections lagwa lo.
Fear gripped all their faces.
Children: (together) Injection?
Ridhimaa: Haan. Pehle kaun aayega?
None of the kids came forward.
Armaan: Yaad hai na? Mere pass magic injection hai. Aisa hi ek Dr.Ridhimaa ke pass hai. Ab kaun aayega?
All came forward. Ridhimaa beamed at Armaan's cleverness. One by one all got injected with antibodies to help them evade diseases. Then Armaan sent them away to sleep.
Armaan: Mujhe bhi bahut neend aa rahi hai.
Bua: Ridhimaa. Armaan aur tum dono jaakar so jao. Ridhimaa. Armaan ko uska kamra dikha dena fir apne kamre me chali jaana.
They all go.
Armaan: Ye tumhari bua thodi change nahi ho gayi hain? Kahan mujhse theek se baat bhi nahi karti thi aur aaj...
Ridhimaa: Wo to tumhe chidhaane ke liye karti thi.
Armaan: Bilkul tumhare jaise.
That night, after dinner. All were assembled in the garden. Armaan was playing with the kids while Ridhimaa was talking to Bua.
Bua: Ye tum itni der se kisko ghoore ja rahi thi?
Ridhimaa got nervous. She had been gazing at Armaan by the corner of her eyes for the last twenty minutes.
Ridhimaa: Kisiko bhi to nahi.
Bua: Lagta hai asar ho raha hai.
Ridhimaa: (pretending) Kis cheez ka?
Bua: Cheez to nahi haan kisi insaan ka zaroor ho raha hai. Mujhe nahi bataogi?
Bua: Chalo mat batao. Bachhon! Chalo sab Armaan aur Ridhimaa ko Good Night bolo aur jaakar so jao.
Children: Good night Armaan Bhaiya, Good night Didi, Good night bua.
Bua takes them all inside. Now Ridhimaa was left alone with Armaan who was sitting on the bench, looking at the stars. Ridhimaa sneaked up behind him in a playful mood. She was carrying a tray with an assortment of food items, which she hid behind. She covered Armaan's eyes with her hands.
Ridhimaa: No. Wrong guess.
Armaan: Ridhimaa please.
Ridhimaa: (taking off her hands) Kya hai. Bachhon ke saath to itni der se khel rahe the. Ab mujhe bhi khelna hai.
Armaan: Kyun? Tum bhi bachhi ho?
Ridhimaa: Armaan. Seedhi tarah se ye kapda apni aankhon par bandh lo.
Ridhimaa: Kyunki main keh rahi hoon.
She blindfolds him.
Ridhimaa: Achha. Ab main ek game khelungi.
Armaan: Itni raat me?
Ridhimaa: Kyun? Raat ka game se kya connection?
Armaan: Achha pichli baar jab raat ko game khela tha tab tum jungle me nahi bhaag gayi thi?
Ridhimaa: Ab nahi jaungi. Achha. Ab main tumhe kuch cheezein khilaungi. Tum guess karna ki wo kya hai. Theek hai?
Armaan: Kaisa bachhon waala game hai?
Ridhimaa: (sternly) Armaan!
Armaan: Achha baba theek hai. Chalo. Start karo.
He gave up. Ridhimaa sometimes acted just like a small child. And he loved that child.
Ridhimaa picks up the tray. First, she squeezed a lemon on his toungue.
Armaan: Umm... neebu ka ras.
Ridhimaa: Correct. Ab ye...
She puts some of besan laddoo in his mouth.
Armaan: Ye to main khushbu se hi pehchaan gaya tha. Besan ka laddoo.
Next she puts one piece of aloo ka paratha.
Armaan: Umm... Aloo ka paratha. Itne easy, easy dogi to...
Ridhimaa stuffs a block of chocolate in his mouth.
Armaan: Dairy Milk Chocolate.
Ridhimaa: Tumhe brand bhi pata hai?
Armaan: Maine kaha tha na ki mere liye ye bachhon waala game hai.
Ridhimaa: Achha ab ye batao.
She was really disgruntled. She puts a lot of red chilli powder on his tongue.
Armaan: (though his eyes were streaming with tears and his mouth was on fire) Ye pata nahi. Ek baar fir se khilao to shayad pata chale.
Ridhimaa had acted without thinking. She was now repenting her foolishness. She knew, Armaan's mouth must be boiling. But Armaan hadn't said anything to her. She would have liked him to slap her for this action. She poured a little honey in his mouth. Armaan ate it. His mouth stopped burning.
Armaan: (now relaxed) Arrey. Tumne dish change kyun kar di?
There was sarcasm in his voice. But he hadn't said a word about it to Ridhimaa. She hugged him tight.
Ridhimaa: I'm sorry Armaan.
She showered him with kisses on his forehead and cheeks.
Armaan: (ecstatic on this professing of love) Lagta hai jaadu chal hi gaya.
He proceeded to open his blindfold. Ridhimaa was now too embarrassed to face him. Before Armaan could open his eyes, Ridhimaa stood up and ran inside. Armaan opened his eyes and found Ridhimaa running away.
Armaan: Mujhse bachkar kahan jaogi?
He got up and ran behind her. Ridhimaa looked behind and saw Armaan following her. She ran blindly ahead. Armaan was behind her. Ridhimaa didn't know where to go. She had ran past her room. She could not go back with Armaan on her trail. She found an open door and bolted inside. She made to close the door, but Armaan held it open. Ridhimaa ran further ahead in the room, which was actually a store room. Armaan entered. Ridhimaa had reached the wall. There was no way out. She chanced a glance at the door. Armaan, sensing her thoughts, closed the door behind him and stood against it.
Armaan: (panting) Ab kahan jaogi?
He made his way slowly towards her. The room was dimly lit. Ridhimaa was crouching against the wall. Her face was flushed. She could not look straight into Armaan's eyes. Till then Armaan had come really close to her. She could feel his breath on her face. She looked up.
Armaan: To... game khatm?
Ridhimaa: (nervously, on finding Armaan so close to her) Ha... haan.
Armaan: Tumhe mujhse darr kyun lag raha hai?
Ridhimaa: (pleading) Armaan... mujhe jaaney do...
Armaan: Itni mushkil se to haath me aayi ho. Aise kaise jaaney doon?
Armaan had unintentionally said a dual meaning phrase. Ridhimaa got scared at his intentions and stared at him. Armaan found her looking at him like that and understood in an instant.
Armaan: Dirty mind! Tumhe kya laga? Mera matlab itna dauda dauda kar thaka diya. Badla liye bagair thode hi jaaney doonga.
Ridhimaa heaved a sigh of relief.
Armaan: Haan to batao... ye game khatm karne ka kaun sa naya tareeka tumne invent kiya hai?
Armaan: Agar humesha aise hi game khatm karogi to main to laal mirchi din me dus baar khaane ko tayyar hoon.
Ridhimaa tried to duck sideways and flee. Armaan kept his hands on the wall on either side of her. She was in his hold.
Armaan: Tumne to game khatm kar diya. Abhi mujhe bhi to karna hai... hain na?
Ridhimaa dropped her gaze. Armaan lifted her face with his fingers and proceeded to kiss her on her forehead. But his gaze drifted to a lizard behind her on the wall. He left her.
Ridhimaa: (shocked) Kya hua Armaan?
Armaan was backing away. He pointed at the wall behind her.
Armaan: Wo dekho... chipkali... chipkali...
Ridhimaa turned around. A lizard was on the wall. Ridhimaa looked at Armaan. He was looking very scared. Ridhimaa turned back towards the lizard.
Armaan: Ridhimaa hato... warna kaat legi.
But Ridhimaa put up her hand and shooed the lizard away. It scurried away from sight. Armaan heaved a sigh of utmost relief. Ridhimaa was having difficulty in controlling her laughter at the sight of Armaan's face. Armaan tried to move to the door to get out of the room. He could not stay where a lizard was present. He was scared of lizards.
Ridhimaa: (from behind him) Kya hua? Game nahi khatm karoge?
Armaan looked back at her and saw her laughing at him. He came towards her and pulled her out of the room into the hall.
Armaan pinned Ridhimaa against the wall and put his hands around her.
Armaan: Tumhe mere upar hansi aa rahi hai?
Ridhimaa: (still sniggering) Armaan... tum chipkali se darrte ho?
Armaan: Nahi... haan. To kya hua? Aur kisi se to nahi darrta na?
Ridhimaa: Lekin itni choti si chipkali se tumhe itna darr kyun lagta hai?
Armaan: Wo ek baar bachpan me jab main so raha tha to ek chipkali mere sir par aakar giri thi. Tabhi se...
Ridhimaa could not control her laughter. She burst out laughing. Bua hurried in the hall.
Bua: Kya hua Ridhimaa? Aur abhi kaun chilla raha tha?
Ridhimaa: Humare Dr.Armaan chilla rahe the.
Ridhimaa: Wo kya hai na, Dr.Armaan ek choti si chipkali se darr gaye the.
Armaan: Choti si? Dekha nahi, wo kaise ghoor ghoor ke dekh rahi thi mujhe. Jaise abhi kha jayegi.
Ridhimaa: Lekin jab maine use bhagaya to usne to kuch nahi kiya.
Armaan: (trying to justify his terror of lizards) Tum ladki ho na isliye.
Bua too burst out laughing. Armaan stared at both the ladies, both of whom were holding their stomachs and laughing out loud.
Ridhimaa: Armaan tum itne bade hokar chipkali se darrte ho... tchh...tchhh...tchhhhh...
Armaan: Main to sirf chipkali se darrta hoon. Aur tum... main bua ko bataun ki tum kis kis cheez se darrti ho?
This put a break to Ridhimaa's laughter. Armaan knew he had made an effect.
Armaan: Pata hai Bua, ye basket hai na... wo...
Ridhimaa: (aggressively) Armaan!
Armaan: Nahi nahi... tum hanso... aur hanso. Aaj to main tumhari saari pol khol ke rahunga aur waapas jaakar Dr.Shashank ko bhi bataunga ki tum kaun kaun si shaitaniyan karti ho. Kabhi tyre puncture karti ho, kabhi paani daal deti ho, kabhi laal mirchi... aaj main sab kuch bataunga.
Bua: Laal mirch?
Now Ridhimaa turned with pleading eyes towards Armaan, who felt pity on her.
Armaan: Chalo tum kehti ho to nahi bataunga. Lekin aagey se mere upar hansne se pehle yaad rakhna.
He went away to his room. Bua rounded on Ridhimaa.
Bua: Tum itni saari shaitaniyan karti ho? Abhi bhi?
Ridhimaa: (looking at the ground) Ji wo...
Bua: Aur ye sab baatein is ladke ko kaise pata?
Ridhimaa: Bua wo... mujhe neend aa rahi hai...
Bua: Kab tak chupaogi mujhse? Pata to chal hi jayega. Aaj nahi to kal. Waise ek baat to hai. Ladka bura nahi hai.
She left for her room. Ridhimaa concentrated on Bua's words and then felt that she should thank Armaan and so, she made way towards his room. She knocked and waited for answer.
Armaan: Aa jao Ridhimaa.
Ridhimaa: Tumhe kaise pata chala ki main hoon?
Armaan: Bus pata chal gaya.
Ridhimaa stood staring at the ground, not knowing how to say it.
Ridhimaa sits on the bed. Armaan sits on a chair in front of her and looked at her intently.
Armaan: Jo kehne aayi thi wo kahogi nahi?
Ridhimaa: Tumhe kaise pata chala ki main yahan kuch kehne aayi thi?
Armaan: Lekin tumhe kehne ki zaroorat nahi hai.
Ridhimaa: Kya kehne ki zaroorat nahi hai?
Armaan: Wahi... thanks-wanks.
Ridhimaa: Haan main tumhe...
Armaan: Maine kaha na zaroorat nahi hai.
Ridhimaa was feeling ashamed of herself. She had troubled him so much and yet he was concerned about her.
Ridhimaa: (trying to get up) Main jaun?
Armaan: (making her sit down again) Nahi. Tum aaj yahi ruk jao.
Ridhimaa looked at him. Mischief was glinting in his eyes.
Ridhimaa: (standing up) Main ja rahi hoon.
Armaan: Lekin mujhe bhi tumse kuch kehna hai.
Ridhimaa: (stopping) Kya? Jaldi bolo. Mere pass time nahi hai.
Armaan: Tumhare pass mere liye time nahi hai? Aur yahan main sochta rehta hoon ki kaise tumhare saath zyada se zyada time spend karun! Mujhe kya pata tha ki tum...
Ridhimaa: Ab rone mat baith jaana. Bolo jo bolna hai.
Armaan: (smiling) Wo main kehna chahta tha ki...
He stepped closer towards her. She tried to move back, but he held her arms and pulled her closer towards him till she could feel his heart beating against hers. Ridhimaa was getting enticed by this closeness.
Ridhimaa: (weakly) Armaan... mujhe jaaney do... warna...
Armaan: (testing her courage) Warna kya?
Ridhimaa: Warna main shor macha doongi.
Armaan: Machao shor. Shauk se machao. Lekin yaad rakho. Itni raat ko tum mere kamre me aayi ho khud chalke, main tumhe utha kar to nahi laaya hoon.
Ridhimaa: Armaan please...
Just then a loud knock came at the door. Both jump apart.
Bua: (from outside) Armaan... darwaaza kholo...
Armaan: Lo kar di na musibat. Tumhari Bua aa gayi. Tumhe itni raat ko mere kamre me aane ki zaroorat kya thi. Pata nahi kya sochengi wo...
Ridhimaa looked at him fondly. Whatever Armaan had been saying a minute before, but she knew that her emotions and self-respect was dearer to him than his life. Armaan looked at her and found him gazing at him.
Armaan: Ab mujhe kya ghoor rahi ho? Jao jaakar chip jao.
Ridhimaa: Par... par kahan?
He made her get into his bed and covered her with blankets. Then he opened the door slightly.
Bua: Itni der kyun laga di darwaaza kholne me?
Armaan: Wo main change kar raha tha.
Bua: Oh! Main poochne aayi thi ki tumne khana kha liya?
Armaan: Ji. Wahin bachhon ke saath kha liya tha.
Bua: Achha. Waise tumhara kaam to yahan par khatm ho gaya hoga na?
Armaan: Haan. Bus kuch check ups baaki hain aur fir bachhon ko kuch first-aids ke baare me batana hai...
Bua: Achha kya kya?
Armaan then went into a speech about safety precautions and first-aids. Bua was asking him questions. He was answering her. Armaan was getting restless. Nearly half-an hour had passed. Bua looked up at the wall clock and exclaimed.
Bua: Arrey mujhe aaye hue to ek ghanta ho raha hai! Dekho gyarah baj rahe hain. Chalo tum so jao. Good night.
She leaves. Armaan closes the door. He then moves towards his bed. Ridhimaa seemed very still. He lifted the blanket from upon her. She was sleeping.
Armaan: Oh no! Ye to so gayi. Ab kya karun?
He then tried to call her.
Armaan: (softly) Ridhimaa... Ridhimaa...
Ridhimaa didn't wake. She was in a deep sleep. Armaan was cursing why he had talked with Bua for so long. Ridhimaa had been tired all day. He couldn't blame her for falling asleep. He too was feeling sleepy. First, he thought of letting her sleep there, then a second thought occured in his mind. What would Bua say if she found her in his room? He opened the door of his room and peered around. Bua had gone into her room to sleep. No one was visible. Armaan picked Ridhimaa in his arms carefully. Ridhimaa held him closer to herself, hugging him slightly, just like her teddy bear. Armaan took Ridhimaa to her room and placed her on her bed. Ridhimaa's arms were still wrapped around him. He tenderly removed them. He had turned to go when he remembered something. He turned back and kissed Ridhimaa on her forehead.
Armaan: Ab hua game khatm Basket!
Ridhimaa was smiling in her sleep. With a last look at her, Armaan closed the door and got out.
It has been a long journey. 100 episodes! Since June 2008 to March 2009… ten long months of simple delight and pleasure of producing this epic, so close to my heart, which has now become my life’s undetachable part. I still remember, I had started writing some sort of predictions when Shashank-Padma’s marriage proceedings were getting a little boring.
I never knew how the predictions matured into a series of predictions and then transformed into MUHABBAT KI RAAHON ME! I know just one thing that this would never have been possible if you all were not there to stick with me through thick and thin. Today, I feel so proud and fortunate to have received the kindness, love, faith and undying support you all have always bestowed on me. I would just like to say a big, special THANKS to all the blog members! I won’t try to name any because there’s always a chance that I’d miss someone out and today, I don’t want to commit this mistake.
Nor would I sign off today with my usual :
Love you Karan and Armaan,
Please vote for Karan
Today, I’ll do so with the anthem of this DMG blog!
Humse hansi… humse khushi,
Hai humi se zindagi...
Taare hum… zameen par le aaye,
Hum laaye hain roshni...
Dil jahaan… Dost wahaan,
Aisa manzar... aur kahaan...
Hum to chale… thhey dost banke,
Dill Mill Gayye!
With lots of LOVE, HUGS and KISSES,
Ayushi Sharma (Lovy)

Its not eveyday that you talk to someone and know they can bring so much happiness in your life
Its not every day that you meet someone who can cheer you up just with their spirits
Its not with every one that you know its all going wrong, and you would find a true support
Its not with every phase in life, that you know, a friend is all you need to stay content in life….
To me, Navya has been all of this and may be more… a true friend, a true confidante and a true companion… someone who has made so many things happen in my life just by being there, over the phone…
She is a person, who deserves all the love, all the happiness and all the success in life… the last one, I have never really seen her run after , unlike many I have met, but its her honesty and integrity that makes things just work in her favor…I really didn’t know what to say on her birthday in particular since, we talk almost every day, and she knows what an important place she holds in my life…But today, I thought, on her birthday we must tell her, how she is so loved , cared for a respected on this blog… she is an absolutely balanced person, some of the most sensible sane people I have met so far….. she can love and care selflessly…. She is the true Riddhima, that all the Armaan’s in the world would wanna wait a life time for….. if I have to say that in DMG terms…..
There have been days when even I have lost my cool or patience, but she has always been a calming force… and the way she comes across on the blog, I am proud of her, for the way she conducts herself, the way she makes her point subtly, but it has its own charm and impact….. We all love Navya don’t we?
She religiously posts DJDW and episode links each day! What would the blog do without you gal? seriously…. We all love you…. And you seriously are the best gift this blog and thw web world has given to me…..
Thank you EDK, ( incidentally that’s a name she suggested)….. it really brought us close…. And on this day there is a confession I have to make… this gal has stood by me at a time, and has shown so much faith and confidence in me at a time when I was in dumps… and if today things are looking up its thanks to her… and guys I have another good news to share with you all… but I think that will need another post… and I will make it too… and on this very day!!!! Thanks navya! For everything!
Ab zyada roh mat….. don’t go all… “ so sweet…. Niha you didn’t have to do all this ya….. but dil main khush ho rahi hogi…. anyway khush ho ja…. Kyunki… Birthday abhi baaki hai meri dostni!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY NAVYA!!! Have a wonderful year and a splendid life ahead…. I hope An Armaan walks into this beautiful Riddhima’s life and make the world say indeed Dill Mill gayye :)
Loads of Love,

Recap... Rahul is getting weirder by the minute around Riddhima.. Riddhima too is getting uncomfortable with Rahul's actions...Muskann discusses her feelings with her father..and Armaan yet again manages to persuade Anjy towards bunking coll....
Scene 1..Riddhima and Rahul...
Riddhima looks around as the lecture is about to start – and frowns as she sees that Anjali is not in her usual place on the back bench. Now where did she go – she came with them to college in the morning as usual. Riddhima shakes her head, feeling worried – this is the third lecture she's missed in the last couple of weeks.
Rahul (sitting next to her as usual): Kya hua? Tum pareshan kyun ho?
Riddhima: Dekho na, Rahul, Di abhi tak nahin aayi. Pata nahin aaj kal kya ho gaya hai unko! Agar dad ko pata chala that she's missing so many lectures, then she'll really be in trouble!
Rahul notices that Armaan is also missing and can't stop himself from saying something. Riddhima is getting too friendly with Armaan, she will be fooled by that guy, he thinks, unless, he, Rahul warns her off. Besides, he is still jealous about that phone call from Armaan – Riddhima never talks to any guy except for him … how come she was chatting so easily with Armaan, of all people!
Ra: Aajkal Anjy ke dost badal gaye hain na … iss liye! Naye naye dost hain … nayi aadatein aur naye shauk. Ab in sab cheezon ke liye time chahiye to lectures ke liye time kahan milega?
Riddhima looks crossly at him.
Rid: Rahul, tum phir ulti seedhi baatein kar rahe ho! Kaunse naye dost, kya naye shauk? Seedhe se bolo na!
Rah: Kaunse naye dost? Voh Armaan, aur kaun? He's a bad influence, I'm telling you.
Rid: Rahul, Armaan itna bura nahin hai … he's okay. Pehle mujhe bhi laga tha ki voh bahut hi stupid type ka ladka hai … lekin …
Rah: Achcha? To phir voh kyun missing hai? Zaroor vohi Anjali ko kahin le gaya hai! Tabhi main bol raha tha ki tum use door raho.
Rid: Tumhe kaise pata ki vo hi Di ko kahin le gaya hai?
Rah: well, he's not here, and neither is Anjy. Khud hi dekh lo.
Riddhima looks back at the empty place on the back bench where Armaan usually sits – she is about to reply back, but Armaan's absence makes her think again. She starts getting annoyed – with the missing Armaan. He had said he wouldn't get Anjy into trouble … or had he? No, she thinks slowly … he just said – no drinking …
Riddhima (she doesn't realize she is talking out loud and rahul is listening): Usne kaha tha … that he won't … aur phir … that Armaan ….!!! Uski baat kabhi nahin believe karungi.. !
Rahul, listening, is pleased that she seems to be annoyed with Armaan again. He adds fuel to the fire.
Rah: Maine kaha tha na … use zyaada dosti mat karo. Voh aisa hi hai … totally unreliable.
Rid: Sacchi, Rahul, tum theek keh rahe ho … mujhe tumhari baat sunni chahiye thi. You're really my best friend …
She smiles in her normal friendly way at him.
Rahul thinks to himself, half sadly … best friends? That's all? Nothing more?
Behind him, Muskaan, listening to their conversation quietly, thinks hopefully … best friends? That's all? Nothing more?
Riddhima looks at Rahul enquiringly – he seems to be lost in thought. She puts a hand on his arm, and shakes him gently.
Rid: hey … kya hua? Come on … cheer up! Lecture ke baad coffee peene chalein?
He looks back at her and starts to cheer up at the smile on her face. He thinks – no, not just friends … I'm sure. Kuch to hai … aur voh tum bhi feel karti ho.
Scene 2.. Muskaan and Atul....
Muskaan is going through the shelves looking for paticular book on neurology...she goes from one section of books to the other with her finger sliding over the books and simultaneously pushing her specs back on her nose... she is humming slightly as she goes on too find the book... the next minute a hand comes from behind pulling out a book ,pushing her a little off on the right side..she turns to see who could the person be and gets a shock .. its the one person she had hoped not to see but knew she would have too some day..its Atul ! she knew no matter how much she avoided him , she would eventually bump into him.. she looks at him as his face takes on a hard look... he looks at her for a spilt second and then looks away..
At:" sorry.. i didnt mean too" .. saying in a very cold manner..
Muskaan doesnt say anything but flashes of past hits her.." Muskaan i dont have time for this now"... "please Muskaan , dont you see i am busy... ".." grow up Muskaan.., stop acting like a child.." sometimes he got more hurtful " Muskaan just leave me alone, i dont need you hanging around me all the time.."
Atul says her name again snaping her back in the present.. Muskaan looks at him and steps away as if the past memories were no longer past... she walks back to her seat making tinkling sound from her payal breaking the silence between them...
At:" tum abhi tak payal pehnti ho.." he casually flips the book from one hand to another..." and that too in library"...
Muskaan doesnt answer him and looks at her book blankly... she closes her eyes hoping for him to disappear...
At:" some things never change.." saying sarcastically..." abhi bhi you and your silence..."
Muskaan finally speaks up gathering courage.." you always wanted that..didnt you? ....so shouldnt you be happy..??"
At:"well well... finally the girl speaks... " he sits across her and looks at her with narrow eyes...
Muskaan is now uncomfortable and shifts her postion just to show how uneasy his presence makes her feel...." kuch kehna hai tumhe , Atul.."
At:" no... not really..but i'm glad that we both thought differently, when we did... its no wonder you could never understand me.."
Muskaan looks up with a pure stunned look" main tumhe nahi samjhi..?? main..? kya kabhi tumne mujhe samajh ne ki koshish ki ??.." she stops when she realises that the conversation is taking a personal turn and she just didnt want to go there...
Atul gets up and looks plain bored...he looks down upon her and shakes his head.." you still need to grow up and for once stop thinking about yourself.." saying this he walks off without bothering to see her tears...
Muskaan slams the book shut... she is struggling to get control of herself..." why does he have to keep doing this .." immediately she thinks back on the fatal day when things had taken an ugly turn... she had organised a special birthday party for Atul when actually she would have liked just the two of them to be together... she recalls how hurt she had got when he never even bothered to open the gift she had got him...she had actually saved her whole 2 months pocket money for that ... he had gotten so busy with all intellectual discussion , that he didnt even realise her absence.. she left the party that night and the argument which followed the next day made him leave her...some birthday it was.. !!
Actually there were so many small things which eventually deepened the gap between them making it impossible for them to overcome it.. it was really simple , which she didnt get...Atul never needed her...!
she steps back to the present where things were just the same... he didnt notice her then.. and certainly not now... there was no use... some things never changed... she thinks about Rahul that very minute and stops herself ..she couldnt afford to go on that path again.....
Mu:" baba is right.. mujhe sirf apni padhai pe dhyan dena chahiye.."
she decides to finish her library work some other time..as right now she just needed some fresh air....
Scene 3:Armaan and Riddhima..
As Riddhima is getting ready to leave for the day, Armaan comes strolling up to her with a huge grin on his face. She looks at him coldly.
Armaan (not really noticing her expression): hey hey … we won!!! Anjy's really lucky for me! Pehle table tennis – phir aaj race!
Riddhima (coldly): kahan thy tum dono?
Armaan (does a double take): Ouch!!!! Auntyji is back!! Oye! Gussa kyun ho? Main bike race jeet gaya, yaar. You should be happy for me! Anjy to bahut thrilled hai!
Riddhima: haan, aur agar papa ko pata lagega ki usne college bunk kiya tha, ek … kya? … bike race ke liye … to voh bahut jaldi unthrilled ho jaygei! Aur tumhara to ghar mein aana band ho jayega!
Armaan (grins) arey, vaise bhi main darwaze se kahan aata hun?! Khidki se aa jaunga!
Riddhima: Good! Taang toot jayegi! And serves you right too!
Armaan: Ouch … that's mean! (pulls her to face him and sees she is really annoyed) hey, tum sachhi gussa ho? Kyun? Agli baar main tumhe le jaunga, okay?!
Riddhima: Armaan, don't be stupid! Main iss liye gussa hun kunki tumne kaha tha ki tum di ko kisi problem mein nahin daloge … aur phir tum use race ke liye le gaye … college bunk kara diya … and you promised me …
(Rahul, passing by, overhears and is really pleased that Riddhima and Armaan are fighting again. He goes off, thinking, when she comes home, she'll be upset again … poor Riddhima, … doesn't matter, I'll be there for here … at least she's now realized what Armaan is really like.)
Armaan: ahhh …. (thinking fast, because he had actually quite forgotten what he'd said to her about Anjy!) Actually, Riddhima, … yeh sab maine tumhare liye kiya …
Riddhima (unbelieving that he can even try such a completely farfetched reason): WHAT??? Armaan, now this is too much! Tum Di ko race ke liye le gaye … for me …? What nonsense!!!
Armaan: No, really! Maine socha … agar tumhe le gaya … to tum to itni unbalanced ho … tum gir jaogi … taang vaang toot jayegi … problem ho jayegi … so just to save you, main Anjy ko le gaya!!! (he grins widely at her at this totally unbelievable reason) … really …
Riddhima (sternly, hiding her amusement): aur koi reason nahin soojha? Jise main tho-o-o-da sa bhi sach maan sakun?
Armaan (frankly): umm … nahin.
Riddhima shakes her head at him, starting to smile: You're too much ! Tum sach much pagal ho! I don't know main tumse baat bhi kyun kar rahi hun!
Armaan (cheekily): kyun kar rahi ho?
Riddhima (smiles equally cheekily back at him): kyunki tum mujhe bahut hansate ho …
Armaan: oho!! To mujhe joker samajh rakha hai! Chalo, main kuch to kaam aaya!
Riddhma: exactly!! Joker no. 1! Ab samajhe!!! (They both laugh) … But seriously Armaan … please, stop all this! Di problem mein pad jayegi.
Armaan: yaar, tum daantthi bahut ho … has anyone told you that before? Hamesha mujhe daantthi rehti ho!
Rid: really? Phir tum mujhe kyun baat karte ho, Armaan?
Armaan (pretending to be surprised): Arey? You don't know why? Kyunki mujhe tumhare notes chahiyen, of course! Smart ladki se dosti karne ka yahi to faayda hai! Mera kaam aadha ho jaata hai! Tum itni smart ho – itna bhi nahin samjhi?
He winks at her and she can't stop her smile now. He really is a clown …
Rid: ab yeh compliment tha ki …?
Arm: Hum dono mein se tum zyaada smart ho … figure it out … !!!
He waves a hand at her and starts leaving. She smiles, shaking her head and continues on her way. At the end of the corridor, he turns and yells back at her.
Arm: Riddhima!!! Hey!!! Aaj ke notes de dena please … aunty!!!!
Laughing, she throws her eraser at him, he ducks out of the way, blows her a kiss and goes off. Still smiling, she leaves for home.
Scene 4:Riddhima and Juhi
Riddhima is sitting on the hammock in her room reading a book…. Rahul's behavior towards her had started to worry her… these days he would turn exceptionally quiet for longest period of time and he had started speaking to her in innuendos that he was expecting her to understand… if she wouldn't he would get offended and start to sulk, something he had never done earlier…
like that afternoon they had been sitting in the canteen and, Rahul had gotten her coffee to drink, but she was in no mood…. When she had told him about it….. he simply had retorted saying….
" agar Armaan kisi five star restaurant pe le jaakar pila toh mana nahi karti na?"
Riddhima is taken aback… she is like .." ye Armaan kahan se beech main aa gaya Rahul….?
Rah: ( controlling his anger)…… I am sorry Riddhima… ( blinking hard)… really sorry…. mere kehne ka matlab wo nahi tha…. Its just that….. kal tum dono ko saath…
Rid: Par Rahul….. maine aisa kya kar diya?
Rah: I don't know Riddhima… I know… I am acting like an ass…. Lekin… pata nahi kyun…. ( struggling for words, settling next to her, drinking the coffee he had offered her….) …. Sure nahi chahiye na?
Rah: mera Proff. Damodar ke saath meeting hai… baad main milta hoon…..
On his exit Riddhima sits there still wondering whats wrong…
As she thinks about it now… she wonders, why was Rahul all of a sudden feeling the need to prove they were friends… why did Armaan bother him so much… it didn't even matter to her if Armaan existed or he didn't… how could he even put himself in comparison with Armaan….? Rahul's strange behavior really worried her…. She was beginning to feel in the last two days that the Rahul she knew all these years was not the one she had seen in the last two days… the Rahul who cared for her… the one with whom she would sit for hours together and chat up…. The one who would tell her she should go out more often, meet more people, the one who had become her only friend over the years only because he knew Riddhima needed someone to protect her…. And even she knew, it was only when Rahul was around that she felt confident…. He would do so many things for her without her asking him to do it….. it had been that way for years… and now the past few days had changed all of that….
Unknown to her Juhi walks into the room looking at Riddhima…… she has a box filled with til ke laddoo in them….
Juhi looks at Riddhima with fondness… and she smiles to herself…… then sitting on a bean bag next to the hammock she says… " kya padh rahi ho?
Riddhima: MB padh rahi hoon…. " " Juhi didi…aap kab aayi?
Juhi: abhi….. thodi der pehle….
she pulls out one ladoo and throws it out to Riddhima asking her to catch……
Juhi looks at Riddhima as though wondering if this could be the ideal time for her to talk about what she had on her mind… she decides she will…
Juhi: tum ye itni saari MB's padhti ho, I am surprised tumhe kabhi pyar nahi hua…..
Riddhima: Pyar…. Kya Juhi didi aap bhi… main kaise pyar kar sakti hoon…..
Juhi: kyun nahi? Tum ladki nahi ho kya?
Rid: Nahi… maine pyar ke bare main kabhi itna socha tha hai…… papa jinse kahenge main usi se shaadi kar loongi….
Juhi: arey yaar…. Tumhe iss zamane main nahi 40 saal pehle paida hona chahiye tha….. khair…. Tum aise nahi maanogi…
Rid: Juhi didi… ( blushing and embarrassed)
Juhi: acha batao… agar tumhe choice miley, toh tum kiss tarah ke ladke ko pasand karogi…
Rid: pata nahi didi.. lekin ek aisa ladka jo di aur meri rishte ko samjhe, jo papa ki izzat kare, jo aapke saath best friend banke rahe, jo daadi ka laadla bane, jo mere parivar ko apna parivaar……
Juhi: bas bas…. Maine tumhaare pasand ke bare main pooch rahi thi, aur tumne toh mere haath main poori happy family ki list thamadi…… lekin Riddhima….
Rid: Lekin kya didi…
Juhi: kya aisa koi ladka hai tumhaari nazar main?
Rid: abhi tak toh yeh sab mere liye Rahul karta tha, issi liye maine kabhi kisi ke bare main socha hi nahi… lekin… jaisa maine kaha papa kisse kahenge main usi se shaadi karoongi…
Juhi: papa ne kaha Rahul se shaadi karlo toh?
Rid: ( thinks for a second) papa aisa kabhi nahi kahenge didi… Rahul to mera dost hai na…
Juhi: Riddhima…. Soch lo… smart hai, good looking hai, aur khushi khushi ghar jamai bhi ban jaayega….. ( she gets a call)
Juhi: Ji? Kya? Fir se? aap rukiye, unhe sedative deejiya main abhi aa rahi hoon…. Juhi rushes out….. worried….
On her exit Riddhima goes back to reading… " ye Juhi didi bhi na…… Rahul…. Hahaha… lekin Rahul aur main? Kitni ajeeb baat hai na….."
Outside the room, Rahul is listening to the entire conversation and a smile comes onto his face, at the thought that, Riddhima hadn't completely said no…. so he had his chances…. The line… "abhi tak toh yeh sab mere liye Rahul karta tha, issi liye maine kabhi kisi ke bare main socha hi nahi… lekin… jaisa maine kaha papa kisse kahenge main usi se shaadi karoongi…" makes him blush even more….
Rahul is hopeful once more… and decides he will tell Riddhima soon about his feelings….

Rohit slightly pat on his back, then both got down from car… they said bye to each other,
While driving, both remained silent…finally armaan breaks the silence
A: I think riddhima tum sahi keh rahi thi, unhone jo karna hai karte rahein unki marji, par hum kabhi bhi nahi bhulleinge ki wo hamare dost hai, jab bhi unhe jarurat padegi hum hamesha unke saath raheinge… par ab jayda link nahi rakhenge… waise links hai hi nahi (riddhima placed hands on his)
Pata hai riddhima ye log meri jaan the, tumhare baad agar kissi ko pyar kiya to sirf apne doston se kiya hai… aaj jab unhone aisa kiya to bahut dukh hua, gussa bhi aaya, par phir socha ki aise apna khoon jalane se koi faida to hai nahi, jo hona tha ho chukka, to kya unhone saath chod diya, tum to ho na mere saath, let them enjoy their life, aur hum apni life enjoy karte hai… (a tear fall from riddhima eyes)
A: ohh le ab mai shaant hua to tum rone lagi,
R: armaaann.. budhu tumhari baat par mera aansu bahar aa gaya tha…
A: koi nai baat to hai nahi, baat baat pea a hi jaata hai bahar, kissi ne bahar aane ko kaha ho ya nahi, kitne besharam haina tumhare aanso, uninvited guest… har jagah bina bulaye hi pahunch jaate hai…
R: hee hee hee…
A: ye kya tha??? ek tumhari hassi ke kaaran hi to tumse shaadi ki thi, wo bhi kitni darawani ho gai hai….
R: (makes a face)tum to na chup hi ho jao, tumhe kuch bhi samjhana jaise bhains ke aage bean bajana hai..
A: acha mujhe to laga tha sirf saamp ji ke aage hi bean baajte hai… bhains kea age bean bajti pehli baar suna hai..
R: kya kya kya kya kya??? Saamp ji???
A: haan wo respect dene ke liye ji lagaya tha, maine suna hai I mean dekha hai saamp ji bhagwan shiv ji ko bahut pasand the, to unhe respect deni chahiye na.. isliye……
R: (she laughed) tum aur tumhari baatein…..
A: bahut achi hoti hai na… yeah I know…
R: (shaked her head) haan……(they reached home) armaan atleast mai ghar par nahi rehne waali… please kahin ghumne chalte hai… (armaan on the verge of turning car)
A: petrol khatam ho gaya… (riddhima’s face got down) to kya hua, bike par chalte hai..
Riddhima chuckled.. yeahh……. Tum car park karo, mai keys leke aati hun, bike ki…
With in no time she was back, both settled on bike and left for a very very long drive, When they start it was around 7 o’clock and now it’s 10:30…. In between riddhima and armaan sometimes remained talking and sometime remained silent enjoying their closeness….
R: armaan meri tummy mai chuhe kudi kudi maar rahe hai… (in a babyish voice)
A: ohh meri princess ko bhuk lagi hai…lo abhi kar dete hai unke chuho ko maarne ka intejam……. (he stopped his bike with force, riddhima bumped into him..)
R: ahhh… yaahn kyun roki bike??? (getting down from bike and asked her to turn back) sonu da dhabba…. To isme kaunsi dekhne ki baat hai armaan???
A: budhu hamare aaj ka restaurant, hum yahin khana khayenge…. Challo ab wahan… he hold her hand while crossing the road, still don’t have belief that she can cross road, then made her settled on bed (manji jo normally dhabbo ke bahar hoti hai) kya khaogi???
Riddhima told him one fav. Vegetable of her own and second armaan’s favorite with chapatti…. After having dinner, armaan little stretched on bed… riddhima hold his hands
R: armaan ghar challo mujhe neend aa rahi hai…
A: don’t even say that, abhi 4 hours lagenge ghar pahunchne mai, to 4 ghanto tak sone ka naam na lena….
A: ji madam….(and he again started his bike) hardly half hour passed, it was 12 o’clock..
R: armaan mujhe bahut neend aa rahi hai…
armaan stopped bike and asked her to sit with cross legs as he had doubt that she may fall down, coz she was too sleepy, first she said no due to suit but then settled, with her arms tightly putting lock around him and her head on his back… she was totally lost in dreams…. After walking few more kilometers, armaan felt that riddhima is little imbalanced as her head was going down… she might fall… he called her several times but she didn’t listen…. Atlast armaan hold her with one hand and with another handling bike…
he decided to wake her, when he found difficult to drive, he stopped in front of one shop for water bottle, on the verge of splittling few drops over her face, but then saw one father with his child sitting like father was driving and child was sitting next (in front of him) with his face towards his father tummy and his arms arms around his tummy… armaan got idea…. How to handle riddhima.. though with that idea he may face difficulty in driving bike, yet he decided to follow that idea…
he again tried to wake riddhima up, but she was sleeping like hell, armaan first smiled then lift her up and changed her direction… she in between opened her eyes but then again closed after she got settled… armaan took out his jacket and covered riddhima as while driving her back directly face wind, there were more chances for her to fall ill.. so he somehow made her wear jacket….
And himself too settled on bike… then took her hand and locked them at his back….
Now they were sitting like…. Riddhima sitting in front of armaan with her body facing him, her head was resting on his chest, her hands were passing from his tummy making a lock at his back, armaan was holding handles in such a way that in his arms riddhima was totally covered from side, his arms was shielding him thoroughly…. Now if her head aur she herself rolls down right or left, she would surely not going to fall… or else fall on his arms……. (hope I’m fully clear how they were sitting on bike… ) in short they were now sitting face to face…. Armaan start driving… he found little difficulty with his legs as they were colliding with riddhima’s leg again and again…. Then he opened foot rest.. for riddhima… and speed up…..
Riddhima was on the other hand was out of the world… enjoying this drive very much, she’d opened her eyes as soon as he started bike… but armaan didn’t know that… and she too didn’t tell him… she was enjoying his caring… his possessive ness for her…. While drving he was taking care that she may not fall, kahi uski neck to nahi bend ho rahi and in between kissing her on forehead that too full of love…. Riddhima was just feeling awesome, her each and every second with armaan was very precious for her and for armaan too…. Each and Everytime they are doing something different, infact very different… when ever they thought that now they can’t love each other more than this, the very next time some thing they again do for each other, that again they realized that their love has increased… they had once more fall in love……
Armaan was too feeling on the top of the world.. he was thoroughly enjoying this moment…. They were driving on silent road under the open sky and stars and the most romantic moon was following them…. Riddhima was rubbing her hands on his back so that he may not feel cold… everything was just very beautiful… while getting married they knew that surely both have great time after marriage but hardly knew that their life would turn out to be most beautiful with each other…
Riddhima lightly kissed on his chest… armaan felt her hot breathe, he looked down and was surprised to see her awake..
A: tum jaagi hui ho???
R: I luv you armaan…. Maine waise yehi socha tha ki mai tumhe ab aur pyar nahi kar sakti bas jitni hadd thi utna mai already kar chukki hun.. par again.. again you proved me wrong… mujhe tumse phir se pyar ho gaya hai….
A: (smiled, then kissed her on forehead)
R: tumhe drive karne mai dikkat to nahi ho rahi.. agar ho bhi rahi hai to bhi mai nahi uttrungi, coz mujhe aise hi maaja aa raha hai.. waise kya hum har roj dinner karne nahi aa sakte????
A: (smiled) aa sakte hai, bas sanjeevani chodna padega..
R: hmm, nahi phir to problem ho jayegi…
A: waise hum har weekend par aa sakte hai…
R: okk par aayenge hamesha bike par hi, car mai to maaja hi nahi aata, na tum hote ho na hawa…..
A: oe hoye…okk ji done madam, hum hamesha bike par hi aayenge…
R: aur mai to hamesha aise hi baithungi…
A: ji madam…. Aur kuch aap kehna chahe??
R: nahi filhaall to bas itna hi, agar kuch aur yaad aaya to bata dungi… aur ek baat aur batana bhul gai… yehi ki I luv u the most….
A: and I luv u the mostest…. Lo aapka ghar bhi aa gaya…
R: itni jaldi???
A: haan bas abhi 4 hi baje hai, bahut jaldi aa gaye na hum ghar??? (ridhima giggled, armaan locked his bike and get down from bike.. as usual riddhima raised her arms and asked him to lift her up)
A: waise tum abhi tak jaagi kaise hui ho???
R: agar itne beautiful moment mai bhi mai so jaati to mujhe jaisi idiot koi aur na hota.. after all mere husband ki pyar ki chaya mai thi, neend khud hi bhaag gai….(she opened the door, armaan put her on bed)
After few minutes both changed the clothes, riddhima again covered her in his arms and then both gone to sleep… hardly they remember atleast from past 6 hours that they were sad for their friends…. Pyar ke aage sach much kuch yaad nahi rehta na….
Riddhima took a side turn and put her arm thinking that armaan is sleeping next to her, but to her surprise he was not there, she with closed eyes searched the whole bed with hands, then slightly opened her eyes and in real he was not there… she immediately got up, her eyes was not fully opened, yet she was moving with half opened eyes… mumbling armaan… armaan….. after searching half of the house, she found him in one room doing exercise… without saying anything she goes near him and settled on floor quietly, again gone to sleep, very near to armaan with a sweet smile on her face…
Armaan didn’t know about her presence until he took a turn for push-ups… when he took a turn, his eyes was closed,little relaxing…. Now he was over riddhima… thinks a bit that how could floor be so soft, but then thinks hai to hai.. tu apni exercise par concentrate kar… he didn’t open his eyes coz not in mood… he did 1 push-up…
Armaan mumbled riddhima.. he immediately opened his eyes, and was surprised when found riddhima lying under him… he took side turn, so that now he was on floor, riddhima also took a turn, her arms was under her head… now they were face to face lying sideways on floor… riddhima was still in dreams… a smile played on armaan’s lips.. he was admiring her… she was looking too beautifull… like a sweet baby.. he remained staring her…. Then coming in present..
A: ridhima.. oe basket…. (shaking her)
R: (with closed eyes) huh….
A: tum yahan kya kar rahi ho???
R: so rahi hun armaan…
A: wo to mujhe bhi dikh raha hai, par yahan kyu??? Apne room mai kyu nahi, I mean bed par aaram se…
R: armaaannn… (cutting him in between) tumhe pata hai na mujhe tumhare bina neend nahi aati…
A: to yahan jameen par aa rahi hai??
R: (finally opened her eyes) tumhe kya lagta hai meri neend kiss par dependant hai tumpar ya bed par???
A: before armaan cud speak anything..
R: ofcourse tumpar, tumhare bina mai nahi so sakti. Bed jo marji chal jayega chahe jameen ka, chahe phoolon ka, chahe kaanton ka.. (she looked straight in his eyes as though she mean it)
A: (again shifting on riddhima) aur agar kabhi mai pass na hua???
R: simple phir mai kabhi soyungi hi nahi… actually meri neend ko bhi meri tarah tumhari aadat pad gai, jab tak tumhari pyar ki panah mai rahungi tabhi tab wo meri aankhon par aayegi.. otherwise nahi… tumhe pata hai armaan(putting arms around his neck, he smiled and nods asking her to speak) jab tum dheere se mere kaano mai mujhe goodnight wish karke mere forehead par pyar karte ho na, mujhe bahut hi pyari si ninni aati hai… aur subah tumhari gudmrng ke bina meri aankhein nahi khulti……
Kitni ajeeb baat hai meri aankhein hai, meri saasein hai, meri dhadhkan hai, meri ruh hai, mera dil hai sab kuch mera hote hue bhi mera nahi hai…. Aankhein wo tumhare liye khulti hai, saasein wo tumhare liye chalti hai, dil wo tumhare liye dhadkta hai, ruh tumhare naam ki mala japti rehti hai……. Not fare…
A: to isme not fare ki kaunsi baat hai… mai bhi to tumhara hi hun… (he raised his eyebrows as to ask what say??? Riddhima smiled and nods…. Looked at time)
R: 8 baj gaye.. sanjeevani bhi to jaana hai..
A: are haan aaj to rohit hume kissi se milwane waala hai…
R: kiss se???
A: pata nahi…(he bent down and kissed on her forehead, then getting up) challo, taiyar hona hai… (giving his hand to her)
R: (remembering ) are haan, aaj to rohit kissi special se milwane waala hai….. (while getting up) aaahhhhh…abhi tak kal ki thakawat nahi uttri…. Log Sunday ko rest karte hai, par hamara sabse jayda busy jaata hai Sunday….. all thanks to our dear friends....(she goes in flashback)
After coming back from a long drive, they slept around 5 o’clock in morning, hardly 3 hours they slept, around 8 o’clock ritu,chirag followed by rohit, nikita entered in house… and when they came, just as if earthquake came… I mean sab kuch hilla diya tha unhone, jaise tufaan hi aa gaya ho…… saari cheezo ki setting badal gayi… actually rohit aur nikita ne pura demo dena tha anjali, atul ki shaadi ka, to unhone surroundings uske according set kar di thi….
Chirag was selected as groom, and rohit became horse on which groom has to be seated, chirag on the verge of sitting on his back when rohit stood up from his bent position… and chirag fall down…. (chirag looked at him with anger)
Ro: are yaar gussa kyun ho raha hai, mai to kal ka scene karke dikha raha tha, atul aise hi gir gaya tha ghode pe se….
A: par wo gira kaise???
Ni: are yaar jab ghode ki punch ko chaddar(bed sheet) samajhkar khinchega to yehi hoga na,
Ro:bechara itna confused tha usse kuch samajh hi nahi aa raha tha aur usne ghode ki puch khinch di, aur bechara ghoda uchal pada aur hamara atul seedha jameen par….. jaise ki abhi aapne chirag ko girte hue dekha…. (all start laughing)
Then came the moment when anjali came on stage,…
Ro: jab tak anjali stage par aa rahi thi tab tak theek raha, I mean usse dekhta raha, jaise hi anjali uske kareeb aakar khadi hui…. (he asked nikita to came near him) aise khada hue, atul behosh hokar niche gir gaya…. Aur anjali ek dum shocked ki atul kahan challa gaya, usne atul ko pukaara, aur atul niche se bola, mai yaha hun anjali.... aur bechara tab ka girna shuru hua tha aur jab tak phere nahi hue tab tak girta hi raha…. Girta hi raha…. Aur hum usse sambhalte rahe,Yehi dukh bhari kahani thi, jiska ant hua….. (very dramatically he said this… near about 10 min everyone laughed in continuation, actually rohit acting bahut achi kar raha tha)
then they all had a very horrible fight, armaan, rohit, nikita, and ritu in between chirag joined them… jab tak saari cheezein ek dusre par nahi phenk di tab tak koi nahi baitha…. Atlast they got tired and settled on sofa…. Armaan realized riddhima’s not there, he looked for her and found her sitting on chair holding her head… armaan asked what happened and she scold everyone looking at the condition of house….
But sab ke sab itne besharam, kissi ne uski daant to kya sun ni, rohit said
Ro: abe oe apna lecture baad mai jhadiyo, pehle khaana laga do yaar bhuk lag rahi hai..
R: (in anger) khud jakar bana lo…
Ni: are wah ye kya baat hui, tum to tab se khaali baithi ho thoda to kaam kar lo…
R: aur tumne kya kiya??? (in a taunting way)
Ro: are wah ye sab kuch jo bhi kiya hai humne hi to kiya hai, pata hai kitni thakawat ho jaati hai,
R: haan ghar todne ke liye na…
Ro: aur kya, kitni energy chahiye hoti hai iss kaam ke liye bhi… bechari ritu ke muh se to aawaj bhi nahi nikal rahi aur chirag to aise saans le raha hai jaise kutta leta ho jeebh nikal
Ke…. Aur tum kehti ho ki humne kaam kya kiya hai, itni mehnat to koi bhi nahi karta jitni humne ki hai…. Challo ab khana lekar aao, hum table par wait kar rahein hai… (rohit pushed riddhima in kitchen)
And they all settled on table singing hume bhuk lagi hai khana do, tapping table with table spoon… riddhima from inside shouts kyun galla phad rahe ho, agar jayda jaldi hai to mai aise hi sukha aata rakh deti hun, khalo usse hi…. (with fake anger) when they heard her voice their tapping got more loud…. Riddhima holds her hair and mumbled pata nahi kaunse jungle se bhaag kar aaye hai…. Anyways she gave them lunch, then they asked rohit ki tum aur nikita ek dusre se shaadi kar lo, kitna maaja aayega saare married couples ki tolli, on this rohit and nikita laughed out loudly said we are just friends aur ek dusre se shaadi karne se acha hum kuyein mai kud jaye.. then rohit said that he has something to tell but tell you tomorrow, actually batana nahi kissi se milwaana hai… then all went out for movie and had dinner in restaurant, near about 12:30 AR entered in home, then riddhima start doing settings, coz house was looking as if it’s a chidyaghar…. Armaan also helped her but very little as riddhima asked him not to help her, else kaam khatam hi nahi hoga…. Around 3 o’clock she got free then stretched on bed… that was their Sunday, the most hectic day……
Armaan waves hand in front of her eyes… riddhima came in present, then smiled and rushed towards bathroom…
Around 9o’clock they reached at sanjeevani, and walked in… saamne hi atul dikh gaya…. They straightway goes to him…
A: hey champ, congrats for your marriage, bahut sundar lag raha tha dulhe ki dress mai… (shaking hand with a wide smile)
At: (don’t know why but he didn’t look at armaan, without looking in his eyes) thanks..
R: congrats atul, wishing you a happy married life…
A: atlast anjali mil hi gai tujhe, ab rakhiyo usse sambhal ke…. Anyways ab hum chalte hai, dr. keerti ko report karma hai… bye…. (and they left)
Atul eyes were slightly moist, he thanked them from the core of his heart… then AR congratulated anjali with a wide smile, but she didn’t thanked them, she was jealoused.. actually she expected that both AR would be sad coz she didn’t invited her in their marriage, but they were behaving normal, infact very happy… and she was not able to see that reaction on their faces……… anyways AR didn’t mind her reaction…. They directly turned towards rohit and nikita….
A: kaha hai teri someone special…
Ro: piche mud, samne hi dikh jayegi…
Armaan, riddhima turned….. armaan was shocked to see one young man coming from front… he looked rohit who was smiling with eyes….
Armaan thinking ye dekhne mai aisa lagta to nahi, par kya ye sach hai…
A: to wo hai aapke someone special???
Ro: haan meri jindagi… mai sabse jayda pyar karta hun uss se….
A: (trying to digest) okk…(and from inside feeling like he’ll vomit in few seconds)
Ro: hai na sundar???
A: (he put hands on his mouth)
Ro: kya hua???
A: (somehow controls) tumhari family ne tumhe permission de di??
Ro: haan, unhe kya problem hogi… hum dono ek dusre se pyar karte hai aur hamari khushi mai hamare mummy papa khush….
A: (mumbled) ek ye hai aur iske parents jinhe inke pyar par aitraaz nahi hai wo bhi kissi ladke se.. aur ek hai mere sasurji jinhe har cheez par aitraaz hi aitraaz hai….
Rohit opened his arms, armaan closed his eyes, thinking he can’t see all this….. after sometime he heard…
Ro: riddhima ye hai prachi, and prachi she is riddhima meri sabse achi dost….
Armaan thinking saalle ne naam bhi ladkiyon waala rakha hai, par naam rakhne se koi ladki to nahi ban jayega…
Ro: aur ye hai armaan mera yaar…
A: (opened his eyes and was surprised to see one girl standing in front of him)
Pr: hiiiii armaan ji, rohit aapke baare mai aksar baatein kiya karte hai, aaj aap dono se milkar bahut khushi hui….
A: (little confused) hiii…. Hume bhi bahut khushi hui… (then looked at rohit and pulled him one side) ab ye ladki kaun hai???
Ro: prachi… meri hone waali wife….
A: to phir wo kaun tha, wo lamba sa, jo nikita ke saath khada hai…
Ro: wo abhi hai, nikita ka hone waala husband….
A: matlab tum dono ka affair nahi chal raha….
Ro: (didn’t getting his point) abe bewkoof ofcourse chal raha hai…. Hum dono shaadi karne waale hai..
A: to prachi kaun hai??? Don’t tell me wo aur nikita…
Ro: abe moti budhi, prachi meri hone waali wife hai, aur nikita abhi ki…
A: iska matlab tum aur abhi ek dusre se pyar nahi karte..
Ro: ofcorse karte.. (now getting his words) kyaaaaaaa???? (looked him wierdly) cheeee…… armaan maine tujhse ye expect nahi kiya tha…
A: maine kya kiya, tu hi to keh raha tha ki tu abhi se pyar karta hai…
Prachi: kyaaaaa???? (making a weird face)
Abhi: rohit maine tujhse kabhi ye expect nahi kiya tha…..
Prachi: rohit ye kya ho raha hai…
Nikita: rohit apni shakal na dikhana ab mujhe, aur abhi par to naajar bhi na daalna…
Rohit: will you guys just stop it…. Pagal ho gaye ho kya tum sab??? Aur armaan tu gadhe itna dimag kyun challata hai apna… maine kab kaha ki mai abhi se pyar karta hun
Now it’s the turn of armaan…. He explained everything and all felt lightly relax… then laughing….(actually prachi was at the back of abhi so armaan was not able to see her)
Abhi: sach mai jaisa niki ne bataya tha waise hi ho tum…
R: par tum logo ne kabhi bataya nahi ki tum engaged ho, kyun???
Ni: actually tab tak itni jayda bonding nahi hui thi, aur ab laga ki ab to bata hi dena chahiye, nahi to tum log hume maar daaloge…. Aur aaj bychance inka aane ka bhi program ban gaya tha to socha aaj hi milwa de sabse……
A: aur shaadi kab kar rahe ho?? 1 mahina pehle bata dena, taiyariyan karni hogi, aur please jaldi kar lo yaar shaadi, bahut din ho gaye apni biwi ke saath dance kiye hue..
A: kya hua, kuch galat kaha kya, tum meri biwi nahi ho kya???
R: armaan… is waqt…. Forget it… (ritu chirag also entered in canteen)
And before they could speak anything….
R: armaan I think hume bahar chal lena chahiye, nahi to saara hospital hamare piche hoga aur dr. keerti ke haatho mai rustication letter….
Ri,Ch: hiii guys….. oe rohit, nikita milwao apne special some one se….
A: ritu pehle tu OT. Chal mere saath..
A: aaj mai tere gale ka operation karke ye confirm karunga ki tere gale mai amplifier laga hua hai na.. I mean tu aise chillati hai jaise hum sab bhehre ho… tum iss hospital mai aane ke layak bilkul nahi ho…
R: (holding her head) phir ho gaye shuru, ritu, armaan atleast aaj to thodi si sincerity dikha do, pehli baar abhi, prachi se mil rahe ho, wo bhi kya socheinge…
Ri: yehi ki hamare beech mai sharam jaisi koi jagah nahi hai, aur ye bhi apni shy ness khatam karke hamare iss sweet se group ka part ban jaye… jo sirf masti karma jaanta hai… kyun ji banoge ji part hamare group ka….
A: agar mana bhi karoge tab bhi hum bana hi lenge, tumhe nahi pata hum kiss khet ki muli hai…
Abhi, prachi: aur tumhe nahi pata hum kiss khet ki gaajar hai……
A: to phir mil jaayein muli, gaajar… tasty si sabji banana ke liye….
And he gave his hand, on that everyone placed his hand tightly, and a new bond of friendship is created…… abhi, prachi became informal in those few minutes….
After their duties AR, RO, NI, after picking chirag and ritu moved towards beach, where abhi and prachi already waiting for them… they ate paani puri there.. then settled on ground making a big circle, and in centre they settled ritika…. Then rohit and nikita shared how they met abhi and prachi….
A: par mai yee soch raha hun, ki abhi aur prachi jab saath saath rehte hai to unhe pyar kyun nahi hua, I mean ek saath kaam karte ho to definitely…
Pr: (cutting him) wo mera bhai hai..
A: kyaaa???? (he hides his face in riddhima’s duppatta, feeling little embarrased and mumbled are yaar kyun meri jubaan mai bhagwan ne springs fit karke bheje.. ek minute ke liye shaant nahi baith sakti, hamesha uchalti rehti hai… kabhi to kuch soch samajh kar bol diya kar…..)(riddhima smiled hearing his words and shaked her head)
Ri: (who was sitting next to him and heard his words) sochne ke liye dimag chahiye hota hai, jo bandaro ke pass nahi hota…. Isliye jayda embarrass mat feel kar, agar karega to tu sochega aur sochega to jo kidi jitna dimag bhi hai wo bhi phat jayega…
Pr: I think ritu theek keh rahi hai armaan….(armaan little surprised with her frankness, but happy also) waise bhi wo mera bahut dur ka bhai hai, paas waala bhai nahi hai.. to tumhe embarrass hone ki jarurat nahi hai… are yaar ho jaata hai kabhi kabhi… so take a chill pill…….
A: okkk agar tum itna force kar hi rahe ho to bas sochna band….
Pr: to muh se duppata to uttar lo, aaj muh dikhai rassam hamari hai, aapki nahi jo muh chuppa kar baithe ho…. And they remained talking like this for hours…. They found prachi very naughty as naughty as ritu…… again a group is formed armaan, ritu, rohit and prachi on one side means who makes everything hell, may be it’s home, may be it’s fight or may be it’s restaurant…they behave like kids…….. and riddhima, chirag, abhi and nikita on one side coz they are little more sincere than them… in first meeting, they all became very good and close friends…. Then they all had ice cream for mixing it’s sweetness in their friendship…. Abhi, prachi left as they had some pending work in factory… and then all the other 6 after spending 1 more hour left from there……
finally armaan after dropping rohit and nikita turned his car and moved towards home…
R: kya hua??? (looking him who was smiling to himself) itni khubsurat muskurahat ki wajah….
A: hasne ke liye hamesha reason hona chahiye aisa kaunsi book mai likha hai… (looking in her eyes) acha nahi lag raha kya muskurate hue???
R: maine aisa to nahi kaha…. (little puzzled)
A: ( smiled at her puzzled face) par matlab to yehi tha… (she didn’t reply… armaan caressed her cheeks) are yaar majak kar raha tha…. mai actually rohit nikita abhi prachi ke baare mai soch raha tha… (riiddhima looked him questionably) kitni ajeeb baat hai rahul, muskaan, atul auron ka role rohit,nikita nibha rahe hai, jab hum log kasaulli gaye the sabko bina bataye to jaisa behave aur gussa rahul auron ko karna chahiye tha waisa rohit aur nikita ne kiya, aur rohit nikita ko actually jaise react karna chahiye tha waisa rahul auron ne kiya…. Infact unhone ek baar pucha bhi nahi ki 1 hafte ke liye bina bataye hum kahan gayab ho gaye the ya ab kaise ho, no reaction at all strange na…..
Phir mera b’day aaya unn 4 ro mai se kissi ko nahi yaad tha except rohit, nikita, and again parso kaise functions chod kar hospital aa gaye, jaise hi unhe hamare baare mai pata challa…. purane doston ko khoya hai to naye dost bhi paayein hai jo bahut ache hai…. haina… (parked car in front of his house)
Aur aaj to abhi, prachi bhi mil gaye hai… kitne sweet hai dono, aur prachi to bilkul tot hai, mujhe lag hi nahi raha tha ki wo hume aaj pehli baar mil rahi hai…
R: (opening door) ohh to aapki sweet si muskurahat ka raaz aapke naye dost hai, waise sach mai bahut ache hai, bahut pyar karte hai humse….
A: haan hope so ki 1-2 saal saath rehne ke baad wo bhi hume ignore na karna shuru kar de.. agar aisa kuch karna ho to pehle hi close na aaye, nahi to baad mai bahut dukh hota
R: don’t worry armaan aisa kuch nahi hoga…
A: (took a long breathe, then looked at riddhima who was also thinking surely about this, then cheerfully ) are yaar kya baatein lekar baith gaye, 1-2 saal ki 1-2 saal baad hi sochenge, filhaal to wo ache dost haina..bas… aur agar bychance unhone bhi chod diya to koi aur mil jayega…. Kyun tension le…. Agar koi aur na bhi mila to hum dono to saath hai hi,doston se kam thodi na hai…
R: (smiled and hugging him) dost nahi pukke dost… waise bhi aaj tak maine kissi ko best friend nahi banaya, to kya tum mere best friend bann na pasand karoge… (departing from him and forwarding her hand)
A: proposal itna bura nahi hai, best friend to mera bhi nahi tha to I can think about it, par ek shart par ki tum friendship ke saare rules follow karogi… jiski list mai tumhe 1-2 dino mai de dunga….
R: hmmm….(little thinking) Dosti mai koi shartein nahi hoti…. Phir bhi agar tum list dena chaho to de sakte ho, mai ek baar dekh lungi, itna to mai tumpar ehsaan kar hi sakti hun… ( she laughed, then both shaked hands…)
A: to aaj se hum best friends bhi hue….(riddhima passed a wide smile, so as armaan,he hugged her tightly) I luv you (took her face in his hands, on the verge of kissing her)
R: (put hands on his lips) mr. armaan aap apni limits cross kar rahe hai..
A: kyaaa?????? (making a weird face)
R: (hiding her smile) aap shayad bhul gaye ki aap mere dost hai, apne dayre ko paar mat karne ki koshish karna….
A: aapke husband to uss dayre ko paar kar sakte haina…. (she nodded) to may I….. (taking permission from her, but then) actually permission ki jarurat nahi hai, apni basket ko pyar karne ka hak hai mujhe….
R: this is cheating… aise to tumhara jab mann karega tum mere dost ban jaoge aur jab man karega lover…. To aise to mai confused rahungi na… (saying like a baby) ab mujhe kaise pata challega ki kab mujhe dosto ki tarah baat karni hai aur kab beloved ki tarah…
R: armaaaannnn…….. (armaan makes a face, she smiled) okk fine… I was just kidding… ofcourse we can share both the relations simultaneously….
A: are you sure??? Nahi to dosti ka plan hum skip kar sakte hai hum….
R: ab tumhe believe nahi karna to mat karo, mujhe to bhuk lag rahi hai, mai ja rahi hun khane… (as soon as she turned armaan pulled her back, she bumped into him) ab aaye na line pe… (she chuckled,armaan kissed her on head, then they settled on their chairs)
While eating, A: waise ek aur baat hai jiske liye mai bahut khush hun… (riddhima looked him questionably)
A: tumhare confidence ka rate dekh kar, jo tumhare face se aise tapakta hai, jaise jharno se paani gir raha ho.... (riddhima smiled on his way of doing comparison) maaja aa gaya…. (then making a little serious face)riddhima mujhe acha lagta hai tumhe itna confident dekhkar, specially dr. shashank and anjie ke saamne…
A: guddd… (he clapped) I like it…. And hats off to your confidence….
R: actually hats off to you, tumhari wajah se naaaa.. tumhare pyar ki wajah se mujhme ye confidence aaya hai….(he smiled, both got up from table)
One day riddhima was sitting in canteen holding her head, armaan came fron back and in her ear shout..
A: riddhimaa…. (she got scared, then slightly hit armaan… he smiled and give her side
hug and read the expression of tension that was running in her mind, little serious) kya
hua basket, itni pareshan kyun ho???
R: armaan muskaan ki delivery hai iss month..
A: haan to isme itna tense hone ki kya baat hai???
R: armaan aaj uska check-up kiya tha, aur uska blood pressure bahut high aaya hai, jo baby aur muskaan ke liye bilkul theek nahi hai… I think usse pre-eclampsia ki shikayat ho sakti hai..
A: wo kya hota hai, I mean tumhe to pata hai mujhe delivery cases ke baare mai bilkul bhi knowledge nahi hai to don’t know about it….
R: ek aisa disorder jo hypertension, eccessive loss blood protein, or low platelets ke kaaran hota hai… aur baby aur muskaan dono ki jaan ko khatra ho sakta hai, high blood pressure mai fits padne ke chances bahut jayda rehte hai armaan aur iss kaaran miscarriage hone ke chances bahut bhad jaate hai…
A: (little tensed) to kya confirm hai ki..
R: nahi abhi urine test reports aani hai, uske baad hi kuch pata challega…( armaan pager start ringing) tum jao armaan…
A: riddhima you sure, mai nahi to thodi der mai challa jaata hun…
R: I’ll handle, tum jao… (he left)
And with in few minutes reports came and the thing for which she was feared came out true…. She was little shivered from inside coz this was the last month of her pregnancy, any time she can have contractions and during this time this disorder…. She was blank for few minutes, then quickly paged armaan as she was getting no more idea…
Armaan came to her, she quickly hugged him…
R: armaan reports positive hai, she’s having pre-eclampsia.. (a tear rolled down on her cheek) armaan ab kya karein, muskaan aur rahul ki jaan hai iss baby mai, bahut wait hai unhe apne baby ki, aur agar unhe pata challa to wo tut jayeinge armaan… mai kya karun, ye case mujhe handle karna hai, dr. keerti bhi nahi hai….. agar baby ko kuch ho gaya to…
A: sshhh…(put hands on her mouth) riddhima baby aur muskaan dono ko kuch nahi hoga… I trust you riddhima, pura vishwas hai tum iss case ko bahut ache se handle karogi, aur dekhna kuch hi dino mai wo apne baby ke saath khel rahe honge…. Ur tum akeli kahan ho, mai hun na tumhare saath…. Tum tense na ho riddhima, aur agar pehle hi itna ghabra jaogi to case ko kaise handle karogi….( riddhima looked in his eyes which was full of trust and confidence for her, armaan cleared her tear, riddhima again hugged him tightly)
R: armaan koi problem to nahi hogi na, sab theek ho jayega na…..
A: mujhpe vishwas hai na… (she nodded) bas mere vishwas par vishwas rakho, and start giving her treatment…(riddhima asked with eyes one last time are you sure, he kissed on her head) yea, ab jao don’t delay…. (she turned) acha suno…. (she looked him) I luv you…
R: (put hands on her heart) I luv you too……
She immediately asked muskaan to get admitted in hospital…now riddhima’s daily routine changed totally, around 6 o’clock in morning she come in hospital and at 11 at night she used to go home.. all the time she take care of muskaan, time to time checking her blood pressure, movements of baby, giving massage to avoid swelling.. taking care of her meals, sometime she forget to take her own lunch, she really work hard on muskaan…
even usse saans lene ki bhi fursat nahi thi, har waqt test reports lekar idhar se udhar bhagti rehti thi…. And everytime she got the support of armaan… normally at 11 she reach home and directly she sits in front of computer and keep on searching, what else precaution she can take for her and baby…. And armaan used to make coffee for her, and sometimes feed her with dinner…
she remained busy on computer and he put bites of chapatti in her mouth… always supported her, kabhi koi complaint nahi, dono ko hardly time milta tha ek dusre ke saath time spend karne ka, par jitna bhi milta tha hamesha enough hota tha…… kabhi riddhima ko darr lagta ya nervous feel karti she directly look in his eyes that was everytime have a flood of love and trust for her……
and her all the doubts dissolve into it…… they just get night to spend with each other.. and at that time riddhima just break into his arms….and forget all her tiredness….. sometimes she was so tired that she lay down on computer table itself and armann used to shift her…. Means he had supported her to an extent…. That’s why she was succeeded in handling this case, atlast one day aound 2 o’clock at night riddhima’s cell start ringing, it’s from hospital….riddhima picked the call and then waked up armaan…. They changed their clothes and rushed towards hospital…. Riddhima directly goes towards O.T and changed her gown… on the verge of entering in O.T but then turned and looked for armaan…. Who was standing at her back… she rushed towards him and hugged him tightly…..
A: all the best riddhima… don’t worry sab theek hoga… (she smiled, armaan kissed her on forehead)
R: thanks armaan… bas ab to sab theek ho hi jayega… saying this she entered in O.T…
And came with a baby girl holding her in her arms… atlast uski mehnat rang le aayi… she kissed on the girl’s forehead, rahul took her in his arms and kissed him, very happy… armaan congratulated him.. then gave many blessings to the baby girl…. Riddhima eyes were filled with tears… rahul was so engrossed in playing with her that he didn’t realize that AR was standing with him, nor did he thanked riddhima….. armaan then goes to riddhima and hugged her tightly in appreciation… riddhima start sobbing.. it was not easy at all… and atlast they did it….
R: armaan mujhe aaj hospital mai hi rukna padega, muskaan ke pass koi nahi hai, so I’ll have to take care of her…
A: no problem dear… I think she’ll need you more ths time…. (she smiled, he kissed on her head) I’m proud of you riddhima…
R: and I’m proud of my fate who has given such a wonderful and precious gift to me… (he smiled, nurse called riddhima) armaan tum raat ko khana kha lena, aur lights off karke sona….
A: ghar kaun jaa raha hai, mai bhi to yahe rahunga hospital mai tumhare saath….
R: armaan tum challe jao, tumhe rest ki bhi jarurat hai, kal subah aa jaana….
A: riddhima tumhare bina mujhe ghar kacha kha jayega, I’m not going anywhere… mai yehi rahunga….
R: par armaan….
A: no par var… jao muskaan ko tumhari jarurat hai….
R: aur tumhe bhi to haina….
A: riddhima go… (and he pulled her inside the special ward)
Riddhima again got busy with muskaan, she took care of her as if she was her mother, giving pain killers, making her comfortable everytime…. And finally 3rd day after her delivery she found her normal, now no complications with her and her baby… both were perfect…. Muskaan got discharged.. and on 3rd day after discharging her, she went home…. This month was very hectic…. Yet they won the battle and riddhima is giving all the credit to armaan, agar armaan ne usse pyar, vishwas ka support na diya hota to may be wo kabhi bhi na ye case handle kar paati… bahut jayda complicated ban jaata ye case par koi bhi complications nahi aayi, itne ache se handle kiya tha, itni care ki thi usne muskaan ki, shayad hi koi kar paata, riddhima ne muskaan ko uski delivery ka pata hi nahi chalne diya tha, jaise saara pain khud hi le liya ho….. that resulted into a healthy mother and healthy and very beautiful girl………
And after three days atlast riddhima entered in house, feeling relaxed and very satisfied from the bottom of their heart….atlast unhone apni friendship ka farz nibha diya tha…
A: riddhima pehle tum change kar lo, phir hum aaram se khana khayeinge….
R: godd. I missed it so much, kitna time ho gaya hai tumhare saath khana nahi khaya..mai bas abhi aayi armaan, give me 2 minutes…though she was very tired but thinking about her dinner with armaan, she forget all her tiredness and came back with in 5 min… sttled next to armaan…….
Both remained quiet during dinner, riddhima was trying to find words for armaan, she wanted to thank him, she wanted to tell him, and show him her love…
A: kya soch rahi ho riddhima..
R: (getting up from her seat and goes near armaan.. )( while correcting his collar) thanks armaan… shayad mai muskaan ka case kabhi bhi handle na kar paati tumhare bina… agar tum time to time mujhe apna support na dete, to shayad ye din na aata armaan… thanks meri har badi problem ko ek chotti si banane ke liye… (then bents down and kissed on his forehead)
A: tumhari nahi hamari problem….
R: ek hi baat hai, agar apni baat karungi to tumhari baat to khud hi ho jaogi, after all hai to hum ek hi… (armaan put hands around her waist and placed his head on his tummy as she was still sitting, riddhima bents and placed her head on his head) pata nahi armaan tumhare bina aaj mai kya hoti, kahan hoti… tumne meri jindagi mai aake uske mayne puri tarah se badal diye armaan, jindagi ko jeena to ab shuru kiya hai, ab pata chalna shuru hua hai ki pyar mai jindagi kitni khoobsurat ho sakti hai… kaanch se Kohinoor bana deta hai pyar, Samajh nahi aata kaise shukriya karun uss bhagwan ka jisne tumhare pyar se tarasha mujhe, sach ab kuch aur paane ki tamanna nahi hai, bas hamesha hamesha ke liye aise hi tumhari inn pyar bhari panahon mai rahun…….. ek pal ke liye bhi tumse kabhi dur na jaun, agar jaun to ussi waqt jaan nikal jaye…. (armaan tried to look up but not succeeded… his grip tightens around her)
A: (still his face hidden in her tummy) ek ache khaase ladke ko pagal deewana to bana hi diya hai apne pyar mai, ab thoda sa to rahem karo uss par, ya ab usse maarne ka bhi iraada hai???
R: marne aur maarne dono ka…. Pyar mai rahem ki jagah nahi hoti jahapanah…
A: (his nose rubbed against her tummy when he changed his face side, she as an instant reaction pressed his head tightly with her hands) hamesha aise hi pyar karogi na mujhse, kabhi kam to nahi hoga na tumhara pyar mere liye…..
R: (settled on his lap and her arms around his neck, looking straight in to his eyes) jayda hona bahut aasan hai, kam hona thoda actually bahut mushkil hai, phir bhi aagar yakin na aaye to…. (little opened his shirt, placed her hand near his heart, first felt his heart beat then moved her fingure as if doing signature) ye raha meri jindagi ka blank check jisse maine tumhare naam kiya hai apni marji se…. ab tum jitna loot sakte ho loot lo.. jitna pyar kar sakte ho karo, jitna pyar le sakte ho lelo…. Jo karna chahte ho mera karlo,
agar kabhi kahoge ki riddhima challo marne chalte hai, bina puche aur aankhein band karke tumhare saath saath chal dungi, bas kabhi apne bina jeene ke liye na kehna…..kabhi apne pyar mai pagal karke beech rah mai na chod dena sach na jee paungi na marr paungi…. So this Blank check is entirely yours…. Iss blank check ki ek khasiyat hai, pata hai kya????? ki isse tum baar baar use kar sakte ho kyunki jis bank se tum withdraw karoge wo bank magical hai, jitna jayda withdraw karoge, pyar ki value kam hone ki jagah badti hi jayegi…. I luv you soo much armaan, pata nahi kabhi tumhe dikha paungi ya nahi ki mai tumhe kis hadd tak chahti hun, kitni pagal hun tumhare pyar mai… (she bent down and kissed on his heart… armaan was not able to utter a single word, just lost in her words… he actually don’t know what to say at this moment….. just looking her without blinking his eyes….)
riddhima looked him then slightly bent down, her lips were trembling and her eyes were moist, slowly slowly she moved to his face and hold his lips with her trembling lips to make him feel that how much she love him, a tear dropped from her eye that fell straight into the eyes of armaan, first time he blinked his eyes and tried to hide that tear in him…. That tear was surely the best proof for him.. iss se jayda wo apne pyar ki gehrai ko kaise dikhaye, jo kaam wo khud chahte hue bhi na kar saki wo kaam uske 1 aansu ne kar diya, pahunch gaya uske pyar ka paigam lekar armaan ki aankho mai aur sama gaya uski rag rag mai, riddhima ka unlimited pyar lekar…..
armaan moved his hands on her head entangling between her hair, slightly moving to and fro… both almost became mad… so lost in each other…. Feeling each other breathes from which fragrance of each other was coming …. And hearing every heart beat of each other calling out their own name…. armaan’s every beat calling riddhima and riddhima’s calling armaan… don’t know now where their madness will end…. Either it’ll end or they remained in this madness throughout their life……..
but surely my part will end here….
Do tell me your views aur please mujhe daantna mat…..
