A poem for u...
You have waited for this moment
Now, at last, it has come true
You have finally reached the summit
And, I am quite proud of you
You are worthy of this triumph
No one could deserve it more
So, embrace this time before you
Filled with happiness galore.
You had trained for countless hours
From dawn ‘til the setting sun
Never knowing where the outcome
Would lead, when this day was done
You stayed focused on the challenge
While you prepared to compete
And the days ‘til now were worth it
Your win has made them complete.
You have longed for this occasion
And at last, it has arrived
Now, you stand above all others
With your heart and soul revived
From this time, you’ll travel onward
Toward your future aspirations
But this day, enjoy your moment
With my warm congratulations!Hope u like it...wid loads of wishes and love
Riza and Ranbir

** 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 tells Rahul what all happened and left asking him not to tell anyone the truth. Rahul, enraged by others’ behaviour snaps at them and reveals the truth about Armaan’s past as well as Salmaan Mallik. Salmaan dies. Armaan is shown captured by the terrorists on the TV and then comes the news of his death. All are sad. Ridhimaa is shattered. Armaan has gone to Tamanna’s house in Bangalore. He creates a new identity for himself as a Radio Jockey ‘Dil’ and his show is a great success. He also launches his album “Tu Zindagi” which is an instant hit. Tamanna manages to force Armaan to come to Mumbai for his interview. PART 161:That night, Ridhimaa was sitting in her room, alone. Armaan's album was playing in the music system. She was listening to the song.
Tumhare dil me halchal si machayi thi kabhi maine,
Basa rakha hai seene me tumhe aaj bhi maine.
Zabaan par aam the charche tumhe bhi to pata hoga,
Tumhare rukh se chilman bhi uthayi thi kabhi maine.
Na jaaney kya sochkar dil bhi maine tumko de daala,
Ye galti bhi tumhare waaste ki hai badi maine.
Bharam apni muhabbat ka humesha maine rakha hai,
Kiya kab zikr tera kisi se bhi kabhi maine.
Nafrat ki nazar se aaj mujhko tum bhale dekho,
Tumhare liye chodi hai kal ki bhi khushi maine.
Naye ashaar gazlon me kasam se maine like hain,
Jhalak jab jab bhi dekhi hai tumhare husn ki maine.
Gayi jab todkar dil tum mera ek baar fir se,
Kisi se bhi nahi ki fir dubaara muhabbat maine. The song ended. Ridhimaa switched off the music system. The song had caused her once again to remember Armaan. She was sure that if Armaan would have been alive, these would have been his feelings towards Ridhimaa. Ridhimaa had not even thought once before severing ties with him once again.
Ridhimaa: Armaan... mujhe maaf kar do please... please!
She went to the window from where many times Armaan had made his entry to her room. Many times he had been standing all night long beneath her window just to catch a glimpse of her. But the days were gone, Armaan was gone. There was no chance of his returning back. Ridhimaa was very unhappy.
Ridhimaa: Armaan... maine kabhi bhi tumhare saath sahi nahi kiya. Humesha tumhare yakeen, tumhare bharose, tumhari muhabbat ko dhokha diya. Main tumhari maafi ke kaabil nahi hoon. Tum kehte the na ki tum mujhe kabhi koi saza nahi de sakte, lekin dekho zindagi ne khud mujhe saza de di hai. Usne tumhe mujhse, hum sabse chheen liya. Par tumne us saza ka rukh bhi khud ki taraf mod liya. Ab meri saza yahi hai ki main tumhari yaadon ke saath ghut ghut kar jiyun aur tumhari yaadon ke saath hi mar jaun. Mujhe tumhara waada yaad hai Armaan... main zinda rahungi. Yahi meri saza hai. Lekin Armaan agar tum abhi bhi mujhse pyar karte ho to please mujhe bhi apne pass bula lo... please Armaan...
Just then the door opened. Anjali had entered the room. Ridhimaa came back from the window and sat again on her bed.
Ridhimaa: Good night Di.
Anjali: Good night Ridzi.
Early morning next day, Armaan and Tamanna flew for Mumbai. While, at Sanjeevani, Ridhimaa was sitting alone in the locker room on the bench when Atul entered.
Ridhimaa: (going upto Atul and hugging him) Happy Birthday Atul.
Atul: (beaming)Thanks Ridz.
Atul was slightly relieved to see that Ridhimaa was coming back to normal. He did not know that she was only faking her happiness. The other interns also entered. They all wished Atul a very happy birthday and hugged him.
Atul: Thanks guys.
Anjali: You're welcome Atul!
Muskaan: Oye Atul... aaj shaam ko party de raha hai na?
Rahul: Jab dekho tujhe bas khaane ki padi rehti hai. Itna jo tu khaati hai, wo jaata kahan hai?
Muskaan: Tu jo mera sir har dum garam karta rehta hai, usi me sab burn ho jaata hai.
Anjali: Guys ladna band karo ab. Atul... tum hume kahan party doge?
But Atul was suddenly looking glum.
Atul: Wo main...
Ridhimaa: Kya hua Atul?
Atul: Wo mere pass is mahine kuch bhi extra kharch karne ke paise nahi hai. Waise hi abhi is mahine ka rent dena baaki hai. Usi ke liye save kar raha hoon. To tum logon ko badi party nahi de paunga.
Ridhimaa: To isme itna pareshaan hone waali kaun si baat hai. Birthday to hum kisi bhi tarah se celebrate kar sakte hain. Hai na?
Rahul: Of course Atul.
Muskaan: Haan... tu tension kyun le raha hai? Waise bhi mera aaj kuch khaas khaane ka mood nahi hai.
Anjali: Cheer up Atul! Hum sab tumhare friends hain. Agar hum tumhari problem nahi samjhenge to kaun samjhega?
Atul: Thanks Ridz. Tumne bilkul Armaan ki tarah meri madad ki. Wo bhi isi tarah...
Atul stopped but Ridhimaa smiled. She didn't want to spoil Atul's day for him.
Ridhimaa: Koi baat nahi...
Atul: Waise guys, mere pass itne paise to hain ki main tum sabko shaam ko ice cream khila sakun.
Anjai: Ice-cream? I love ice-creams. Lekin Atul sambhal ke. Ridz jab ice-creams dekhti hai to do-do kha jaati hai.
Atul: Don't worry. Do kya chaar bhi chalegi. Aur issey mere monthly budget par zyada fark bhi nahi padega.
Rahul: Good idea Atul.
Muskaan: Mujhe bhi ice-creams bahut pasand hain. Lekin hum log kisi parlour me baith ke nahi khayenge. Ghoomte ghoomte khayenge.
Atul: OK done.
Armaan and Tamanna reached Mumbai in the afternoon. Armaan first went to his house and took out his smaller car from the garage. The Range Rover had crashed in the accident.
Tamanna: Ye tumhara ghar hai? Andar chalein?
Armaan: Baad me. Abhi time nahi hai. Dekho chaar baj rahe hain. Aur hume saat baje tak wahan interview ke liye pahunchna hai. Aur abhi hume Inspector Tiwari se bhi milne jaana hai.
Tamanaa: Inspector se milne! Kyun?
Armaan: Tammy... itne din baad main logon ke saamne aunga... wo log jo mujhe mara hua samajhte the, wo police se sawaal karege. Mujhe pehle jaakar saari baat clear karni hogi.
Tamanna: Haan theek hai. Fir hum log kapde change karke interview ke liye chale jayenge.
They both reach the police station. Tiwari was waiting for them only.
Tiwari: Aiye Dr.Armaan...
Armaan: Aapko mere solicitor ne bata diya tha na?
Tiwari: Haan... unhone usi din mujhe bata diya tha. Aur ek tarah se theek bhi kiya, agar wo nahi batate to aaj aapko yahan din bhar lag jaata.
Armaan and Tamanna sit down.
Tiwari: Dr.Armaan... aap apna statement dijiye ki aap kaise bach paaye.
Armaan told him everything. He also gave his statement to Tiwari in writing. Tiwari was satisfied.
Tiwari: Lekin aap itne din tak saamne kyun nahi aaye?
Armaan: Wo main... main khud ko dhoondh raha tha... isliye...
Tiwari: Main aapke jazbaat samajhta hoon. Aapko in papers par sign karna hoga. Fir aap ja sakte hain.
Armaan signed the papers and stood up.
Tiwari: Waise Dr.Armaan... aap kaafi change ho gaye hain.
Armaan smiled vaguely.
Armaan: Aap bhi humare saath chalenge?
Armaan told Tiwari about his album.
Tiwari: Wo Dil... aap hain?
Tiwari: I must say you are multi-talented. Aapke gaane bahut hi achhe hain, dil ko chhoo lene waale. Kaash main aapke saath chal sakta but duty comes first.
Armaan: I understand. But now I must take your leave. Hume aadhe ghante me wahan pahunchna hai...
Tiwari: Ji bilkul... aap ja sakte hain.
Armaan and Tamanna left. They reached the venue and Tamanna sent Armaan in the dressing room to change his clothes. When he came out, the media had come and were waiting for Dil. They saw Armaan and the ones who knew him gasped.
Ridhimaa,Atul,Anjali,Muskaan and Rahul were a few metres away from the venue where Armaan's interview was to be taken. They all were carrying ice-cream cones in their hand and were talking and walking.
Atul: Arrey Rahul, wahan dekh... lagta hai koi bahut bada function hai.
Anjali patted Atul on the arm.
Atul: Kya hua?
Anjali pointed towards the posters. Atul read them.
Atul: Arrey! Yahan par to Tu Zindagi ke singer ka interview hone ja raha hai. Tabhi itni bheed hai. Kitna popular hai na Dil?
Muskaan: Mujhe bhi usse milna hai... baat karni hai.
Rahul: Ye to impossible hai... dekh nahi rahi kitni tight security hai. Aur humare pass to entry passes bhi nahi hain.
Atul: Pata hai, Ridz to usse baat bhi kar chuki hai.
Atul: Haan... aur bechare ki insult bhi kar chuki hai.
He told them what Ridhimaa had told him of the conversation with Dil(Armaan).
Anjali: Ridz kabhi nahi sudhregi. Lekin Ridz ko bhi wo pasand hai na. Har samay uske gaane sunti rehti hai.
Atul: Anjali... tum mujhe wo album gift karne waali thi na.
Anjali: Arrey haan... lekin wo to mere locker me reh gayi, Sanjeevani me.
Atul was sad.
Atul: Meri kismat hi kharaab hai.
Anjali: Sorry Atul!
Atul: It's OK. Kisi ko aur ice-cream khaani hai?
Muskaan: Haan mujhe...
Atul: To chalo... sab log ek ek ice-creams aur khaate hain.
Anjali knew that she had been careless.
Anjali: Atul... I am really sorry.
Atul: (gaily) It's OK Anjali. Koi bhi album tumse zyada important thode hi hai.
Anjali: Shut up Atul!
Meanwhile, Armaan was being taken to the stage where the interview was to be taken in front of the whole audience. It was Preeti again who was taking his interview.
Preeti: Welcome Dr.Armaan... I mean Dil... aap hi bataiye main kya keh kar bulaun aapko?
Armaan: Aap mujhe Armaan keh sakti hain.
Preeti smiled. Armaan was looking very handsome in his usual black designer T-shirt, the black trousers, his black leather jacket and his glasses which gave him a slightly serious look.
Preeti: Humari audience hi nahi, balki ye poora desh jaanna chahega ki wo Dr.Armaan jo mara hua maana ja raha tha, achaanak se zinda kaise ho gaya?
Armaan: Dekhiye... main mara nahi tha...
He told the story about his escaping from the terrorists.
Preeti: Jab aap bach gaye the to duniya ke saamne kyun nahi aaye?
Armaan: Main shayad zindagi se bhaag raha tha, ya shayad zindagi ki sachhai se. Main khud ko aap logon ki tarah hi mara hua samajhne laga tha. Zindagi ki kadwi sachhai ko face karne se darrta tha.
Preeti: Zindagi ki kadwi sachhai... jaise? Kahin aap apni engagement tootne ki baat to nahi kar rahe?
Armaan: Aapko jo samajhna hai, samajhiye. Iske aise kaaran bhi ho sakte hain, jinke baare me aap soch bhi nahi sakti. Yahan tak ki maine bhi nahi socha tha ki mere saath... aise hoga.
Preeti: To fir aapke Dil banke waapas aaney ka kaaran?
Armaan: Kyun? Mujhe waapas nahi aana chahiye tha kya?
Preeti: Nahi aisi baat nahi hai... lekin ek fake identity ke saath...
Armaan: Maine aapko bataya tha na ki main zindagi ko face nahi karna chah raha tha. Lekin music mera passion hai. Main apni ek nayi identity banana chahta tha... isiliye maine Radio City join kiya. Jab wahan se success mili to apna music album launch kiya jo shayad logon ko pasand aa raha hai.
Preeti: So modest! Aapka album to logon ko deewana bana raha hai Dr.Armaan Mallik.
Armaan: Thank you so much.
Preeti: Aap apni is kaamyaabi ka shrey kise dena chahenge.
Armaan: Meri khud ki mehnat ke alaawa, ek aisa insaan hai jo agar meri zindagi me na hota to aaj main aapke saamne na baitha hota. Wo insaan jisne mujhe fir se zindagi ko face karne ke kaabil banaaya. Wo hain Dr.Tamanna.
The cameras scanned on Tamanna, who beamed and smiled.
Preeti: Miss Tamanna... aaj aap unki wajah se...
Armaan: Ji. Kewal unki wajah se.
Preeti: Bahut pyar karte hain aap unse?
Armaan: Bahut zyada.
Preeti: Aap apni album ka koi gaana humare viewers ke liye gaakar sunayenge?
Armaan: Yeah, sure.
Armaan started to sing. The studio audience was singing with him.
Maine chaand aur sitaaron ki tamanna ki thi,
Mujhko raaton ki syahi ke siwa kuch na mila,
Main wah nagma hoon jise pyar ki mehfil na mili,
Wah musafir hoon jise koi bhi manzil na mili,
Zakhm paaye hain maine bahaaron ki tamanna ki thi,
Maine chaand aur sitaaron ki tamanna ki thi...
Kisi gesu kisi aanchal ka sahara bhi nahi,
Raaste me koi dhundhla sa sitaara bhi nahi,
Meri nazron me nazaaron ki tamanna ki thi,
Maine chaand aur sitaaron ki tamanna ki thi...
Dil me naakaam ummeedon ke basere paaye,
Roshni lene ko nikla to andhere paaye,
Rang aur noor ke dhaaron ki tamanna ki thi,
Maine muhabbat se muhabbat ki tamanna ki thi,
Maine chaand aur sitaaron ki tamanna ki thi... The song finished. The auditorium echoed with claps and cheers. Armaan opened his eyes. Ridhimaa had come unwantedly to his mind and he wanted to remove her memory.
Preeti: Wonderful! Lekin aisa kyun hai ki aapki album ke seven songs me se four sad songs hain? Kya aapne apni zindagi se prabhaavit hokar ye songs likhe hain?
Armaan: Aisa ho sakta hai kyunki maine apni zindagi me bahut se logon ki nafratein jheli hain. Bahut si muhabbatein khoyi hain.
Preeti: Shayad aap humse ye baat discuss hi nahi karna chahte. To rehne dijiye... ye bataiye ki aapne apni album ke duet songs bhi akele hi gaaye hain. Kyun?
Armaan: Main apne ye gaane kisi aur ladki ke saath share nahi kar sakta. Mujhe achha nahi lagta ki koi mere saath mere gaane gaaye...
Preeti: Thank you very much Dr.Armaan... ki aap humare studio me apna keemti waqt nikaal kar aaye. Hum dua karenge ki aapko aur bhi zyada shohrat aur kaamyaabi mile.
The interview ended. Armaan quickly left the studio with Tamanna as he didn't want to face the press reporters. Tamanna was carrying a packet. Armaan wanted to walk for a small distance, Tamanna agreed for a small walk.
Tamanna: Interview bahut hi achha tha Ammy.
Armaan: (indicating the packet in Tamanna's hands) Thanks... ye kya hai?
Tamanna: Tumhari album ki kuch spare CDs hain. Waise Ammy, tumne wahan par mera naam lekar mera dil khush kar diya.
Armaan: Maine to tumhare naam par poora gaana sunaya tha.
Armaan turned to face her and started walking backwards.
Armaan: (singing while looking at Tamanna) Maine chaand aur sitaaron ki Tamanna ki thi...
Armaan was about to collide with a girl coming from the opposite side with some friends.
PART 163:Armaan: (still singing and moving backwards) Maine muhabbat se muhabbat ki tamanna ki thi...
The group too was busy in chatting with each other. None was looking at the front as it was a deserted road. Tamanna caught Armaan's hand before he could bump into the girl who was surprised at the song being sung.
Tamanna: (shouting) Ammy!
Armaan rounded on his feet. The group too had stopped hearing Tamanna's voice. As soon as Armaan turned to face the girl, he freezed. Ridhimaa, Atul, Rahul, Anjali and Muskaan were in front of him. They first looked enquiringly at Ridhimaa who had stopped and then their gaze fell on Armaan. Ridhimaa's eyes began to water. Armaan was standing before her. Was it a dream? But Armaan was looking different. None of them could believe their eyes. All the tears Ridhimaa had tried to control for over a month were flowing down her cheeks now. Armaan could not bear to see Ridhimaa in tears. Her lips formed the word 'Armaan' but no sound came out from them. She raised her hand to touch him, to feel him, to prove that he was not her imagination.
Armaan: (turning away from Ridhimaa) Tammy... chalein?
Ridhimaa: (not believing her eyes) Armaan?
Tamanna: (to Armaan) Ammy... ye kaun hai?
Armaan: (completely ignoring Ridhimaa and speaking to Tamanna robustly) Tammy chalo...
Armaan turned his face away from them all. He did not want to talk to any of them. Rahul came forwards to face him and hugged Armaan.
Rahul: (his eyes brimming with unshed tears) Armaan... tu... tu... you're alive!
Armaan did not speak. He was trying hard to control his own emotions.
Rahul: Tera accident, fir kidnap, fir wo bomb blast, tu to... hume to koi body bhi mili thi... humne samjha wo tu hai...
Armaan: For some, I am better off as dead. Aur main unke liye zinda nahi hona chaahta.
He was not even looking at anyone else except Rahul.
Rahul: Aisa mat bol Armaan... tu kahan chala gaya tha? Waapas kyun nahi aaya?
Armaan: Tujhe iska jawaab nahi pata?
Rahul shook his head. Then he looked at Tamanna and went near her.
Rahul: Tamanna, right?
Tamanna: (shaking hands with Rahul) Yes Rahul, you're right. Waise I must say, tum kaafi change ho gaye ho.
Rahul: Main same yahi baat Armaan ke liye kehne waala tha. New hairstyle, clothes, leather jacket and at the top of all... glasses!
Armaan: Maine to sirf apne kapde badle hain, lekin afsos khud ko nahi badal paaya.
Tamanna: Rahul, how're you?
Rahul: I'm fine. Tum batao kaisi ho? Doctor ban gayi ya fir...
Tamanna: Ban gayi doctor. Aur ye log... ye sab kaun hain?
Rahul looked at the others. All had been shocked on seeing Armaan. Tears were still falling fast from Ridhimaa's eyes. Armaan looked up and suddenly remembered something. Muskaan came and stood beside Rahul.
Tamanna: Tum sab log Ammy ko jaante ho? Uske friends ho tum log?
Armaan: Kaisi baat kar rahi ho Tammy? Mere jaisa dhokhebaaz, jhootha aur matlabi insaan kabhi kisika friend ho sakta hai? No ways! Mujhe to bas dhokha dena aata hai...
Armaan: Dr.Joshi... Happy Birthday. Main dua karunga ki aapki zindagi me mere jaisa backstabber koi aur na aaye.
Atul was surprised. Armaan remembered his birthday. Tamanna went up to Atul.
Tamanna: Aaj tumhara birthday hai? Ammy ki baaton ko mind mat karna. OK? Waise mere pass dene ke liye kuch aur to nahi hai, isliye... ye Ammy ki taraf se tumhara birthday gift samajh kar rakh lo.
Tamanna took out a CD of Armaan's album from the packet and gave it to Atul. Atul's eyes glowed.
Atul: Wow! Thanks!
Tamanna: Tumhe pasand aaya?
Atul: Haan... Anjali aaj mujhe yahi album gift karne waali thi lekin wo isey Sanjeevani ke locker me hi chod aayi. It's my favourite album.
Rahul: Tamanna... tum yahan...
Tamanna: Ammy ko Mumbai zabardasti lekar aayi hoon. Wo to aa hi nahi raha tha. Itna improtant interview miss karne ja raha tha..
Armaan: (warningly) Tammy...
Tamanna: (ignoring Armaan) Haan... uski album hit hone ke baad uska interview liya jaana tha na...
Rahul: Armaan ki album?
Tamanna: Don't tell me tumhe nahi pata. Ye "Tu Zindagi" Armaan ki hi to album hai.
Atul: (looking at the CD in his hand) Kya?
Tamanna: Haan... aap logon ne kabhi Ammy ko gaate hue nahi suna?
Rahul: Tabhi mujhe ye awaaz jaani pehchaani lagti thi...
Atul: To wo Radio City waala Dil... Armaan hai?
Tamanna: Of course!
Ridhimaa was shocked out of her senses. She had talked to Armaan and had rightly recognised him. But maybe he had not recognised her voice. She turned to look at Armaan who was resolutely not looking at anyone of them. Armaan felt someone's gaze on him and looked up. Ridhimaa was looking at him with her tearfilled eyes. Armaan's eyes met hers for a second.
Armaan: Tammy... chalo.
Tamanna: Ek minute Ammy...
Tamanna went to each one of them.
Anjali: Hye... I am Anjali.
Muskaan: Main Muskaan...
Atul: Atul here...
Then Tamanna reached Ridhimaa whose face was glazed with tears.
Tamanna: Arrey... tum ro kyun rahi ho?
Armaan came towards the pair.
Armaan: (holding Tamanna's hand and dragging her away from Ridhimaa) Tammy... chalo... warna main ja raha hoon.
Tamanna: Lekin Ammy... ye ro rahi hai...
Armaan: (in a quivering voice) Please Tammy... chalo... please!
Tamanna: Achha baba chal rahi hoon... chalo...
They both went away to Armaan's car and Armaan drove them away. The others were standing still.
Atul: Armaan zinda hai... thank God!
Anjali: Haan... I am so happy!
Muskaan: Lekin wo abhi bhi hum logon se naraaz hai.
Atul: Koi baat nahi, hum log use mana lenge. Hai na Rahul?
Rahul was looking at Ridhimaa.
Rahul: Haan... hum koshish karenge.
Muskaan: Waise Armaan is naye look me kaafi handsome lag raha tha... hai na?
Ridhimaa went to her car and left. Meanwhile, in the car, Armaan was very quiet.
Tamanna: Ammy... kya hua?
Armaan: Ye tum mujhse pooch rahi ho? Kya zaroorat thi un logon se baat karne ki?
Tamanna: Ammy... wo tumhare...
But she could not complete her sentence. The car stopped suddenly. They both got out and Armaan checked the car.
Armaan: Oh no! Kharaab ho gayi aur yahan aas pass koi mechanic bhi nahi milega. Lift maangni padegi.
They looked up and down the road. No car came by for fifteen minutes. After a few more minutes, they saw a car coming.
Tamanna: (going in the middle of the road to stop the car) Ye car to main rok ke rahungi. Stop! stop!
Brakes were applied hurriedly. Ridhimaa stepped out of the car.
Ridhimaa: (going to Tamanna) Aap theek to hain?
Tamanna: Yes, I am alright. Ammy! Dekho... lift mil gayi.
Ridhimaa looked around. Armaan was standing beside his car which looked to have broken down.
PART 164: Armaan turned his face away from Ridhimaa.
Then she turned to Ridhimaa.
Tamanna: Tum lift de dogi na hume? Hume bas thodi door jaana hai.
Ridhimaa: Haan... wo... lekin... wo...
Armaan: Tammy... hume inse lift nahi leni.
Tamanna: Ammy... pagal mat bano. Mere pairon me khade kahde dard ho raha hai. Tum mat aao par main to ja rahi hoon.
Armaan started walking away, angry. Tamanna rushed upto him and blocked his way.
Tamanna: Ammy... tum mujhe chod ke chale jaoge? Tum meri khaatir nahi chal sakte? Please... mere liye? Main sach me bahut thak gayi hoon.
Armaan looked at Tamanna and sighed.
Armaan: Lekin Dr.Gupta ko problem hogi...
He knew that Ridhimaa would not like him to come.
Tamanna: Nahi hogi... maine pooch liya hai... nahi hogi na?
She was asking Ridhimaa. Ridhimaa nodded.
Tamanna: Ammy, tum car drive karo... main Miss Gupta ke saath peeche baithungi.
Armaan,Ridhimaa: (together) Kyun?
Tamanna: (smiling) Kyunki itni raat me ek aadmi ke hote hue ek ladki car drive kare, achha nahi lagta.
Tamanna took Ridhimaa by hand and they both went and sat in the car's back seat. Armaan took the driving seat, and started the car. He was driving when his gaze fell on his own photograph on the dashboard. Tamanna too saw it.
Tamanna: Ammy ki photo! Wow Ammy... tum isme kitne cool lag rahe ho!
Armaan picked up the photograph and put it in the drawer.
Tamanna: Ammy! Ye kya kar rahe ho? Tum aise kisi ki cheez kaise chhoo sakte ho?
Ridhimaa was quiet. Armaan did not answer.
Tamanna: Miss Gupta, aapka naam?
Ridhimaa: Dr.Ridhimaa Gupta.
Tamanna: (extending her hand) Hye, I am Tamanna...
Ridhimaa shook her hand.
Tamanna: Ridhimaa... tum theek to ho?
Tamanna: Lekin tumhara haath to kaanp raha hai aur tumhe bahut tez bukhaar bhi hai.
Ridhimaa: Wo to bas aise hi...
Tamanna: Ridhimaa... tum to khud ek doctor ho...
But Ridhimaa closed her eyes. She was feeling very weak. She had been crying ever since she had met Armaan today. Darkness was closing in upon her. Someone seemed to be squeezing her down a long, narrow, dark tunnel. She fainted due to weakness and fever.
Tamanna: Ridhimaa... Ammy...
Armaan stopped the car on hearing Tamanna's shriek. He turned his face back and saw Ridhimaa leaning over the car's window. Her head was lolling out. Armaan quickly stepped out from the car and came towards her and opened the door.
Armaan: (touching Ridhimaa's face) Ridhimaa... Ridhimaa...
Ridhimaa's face was burning.
Armaan: Shayad bukhaar aur kamzori ki wajah se behosh ho gayi hai. Lagta hai aaj isne khana bhi nahi khaya hai.
Armaan went back to the driving seat and opened the car's drawer. He knew a water bottle must be kept there and passed the bottle to Tamanna. Tamanna sprinkled some water on Ridhimaa's face. Ridhimaa came round.
Ridhimaa: (mumbling softly) Armaan...
She opened her eyes.
Tamanna: Are you OK?
Ridhimaa: Haan... haan main theek hoon...
Tamanna: Ridhimaa... tumhe bahut high fever hai aur weakness ki wajah se tum faint bhi ho gayi thi.
Tamanna: Arrey isme sorry ki kya bat hai aur Ammy keh raha tha ki shayad aaj tumne khaana bhi nahi khaaya.
Ridhimaa looked at Armaan who averted his gaze from her. How did he know about it?
Ridhimaa: Nahi to... maine to bahut saara khaana khaya tha...
Armaan: (before he could stop himself) Huh!
Tamanna: (smiling) Ridhimaa... tumne kuch nahi khaaya na?
Ridhimaa: Nahi... ice-cream khaayi thi...
Tamanna: Bukhaar me ice-cream?
Armaan knew that Ridhimaa loved ice-creams.
Tamanna: Aisa karo Ammy... tum kisi jagah car roko. Mujhe bhi bhookh lag rahi hai, tumne bhi kuch nahi khaaya hai aur Ridhimaa ko bhi agar jaldi khaana nahi mila to wo fir se behosh ho jaayegi.
Armaan: Kahan chalun? Ice-cream parlour?
Ridhimaa: Nahi Tamanna... main ghar jaakar kha lungi. Meri wajah se pareshaan hone ki zaroorat nahi hai.
Tamanna: OK. Ammy chalo Ridhimaa ko ghar drop kar dein. Ridhimaa apne ghar ka raasta batana...
Ridhimaa: Aap log apne ghar jaiye... main chali jaungi...
Tamanna: No ways! Tum is haalat me drive karogi? Seedhe seehe apne ghar ka raasta batao.
Ridhimaa kept mum. Armaan put the car on the way to Ridhimaa's house.
Tamanna: Arrey raasta nahi bataogi to Ammy kahaan lekar jaayega?
Armaan stopped the car.
Tamanna: Kya hua Ammy?
Ridhimaa: Wo... mera ghar aa gaya.
Tamanna: Oh! Main to bhool gayi thi ki Ammy ko raasta pata hoga. So silly of me!
Ridhimaa stepped out from the car. Armaan and Tamanna too stepped down. Armaan locked Ridhimaa's car. Ridhimaa was swaying. Tamanna held her.
Tamanna: Ammy... Ammy...
Armaan looked towards her. Ridhimaa was about to fall down again. She was looking very weak. Armaan rushed to her and held her by the shoulders. Armaan helped Ridhimaa reach her house. Ridhimaa at long last, felt safe and secure in Armaan's arms. She opened her eyes. Armaan was still not looking at her but she could see that he was looking worried. Tamanna rung the bell of Ridhimaa's house. Armaan left Ridhimaa. She held the wall for support. Padma opened the door.
Padma: Ridhimaa... kya hua?
Tears were again falling from Ridhimaa's eyes. As soon as she left the wall and tried to stand straight, Ridhimaa lost balance and was about to fall but Armaan caught her by her shoulder and came into the view. Till then Shashank and nani had also come to the door hearing Padma's voice. The three stared at Armaan unbelievingly. Anjali also came there and seeing Ridhimaa's condition, took her inside.
Padma,Shashank,Nani: (together) Armaan!
Evidently Anjali had not told them about his returning back. But Armaan turned. Tamanna was standing just behind him. He handed her the keys of Ridhimaa's car and moved away to find a taxi. Tamanna came towards Shashank.
Tamanna: (filled with awe and handing him Ridhimaa's keys) Aap... aap Dr.Shashank Gupta hain na? Sanjeevani ke Dean?
Tamanna: I am very honoured to meet you sir, very honoured. I am Tamanna... Dr.Tamanna... Ammy... I mean Dr.Armaan Mallik ki...
Till then Armaan had come back with a taxi.
PART 165:Tamanna: (ignoring Armaan) Pata hai sir, college me aap hum sabke ideal the... Ammy to bolta tha ki wo aapke jaisa hi kaamyaab doctor banega... Ridhimaa aapki beti hai? How lucky! Bahut pyari hai...
Tamanna was speaking non-stop.
Armaan: (a little loudly) Tammy...
Tamanna: Ek minute Ammy. Sir, Ridhimaa ki tabiyat kharaab hai. Ammy bol raha tha ki shayad usne kuch khaaya bhi nahi hai. Aap use khaana khila dijiyega... main usse mil loon?
Padma: Mil lo.
Tamanna: Thank you aunty.
She started to move inside. Armaan was shocked. He came there and stopped Tamanna by holding her hand.
Armaan: Tammy.. chalo... taxi aa gayi hai...
Tamanna: Lekin main to Ridhimaa se milne ja rahi thi...
Armaan: Maine kaha na chalo...
Tamanna: Lekin Ridhimaa...
Armaan: (furiously) Tammy...
Nani: Armaan... beta... mil lene do na use...
Armaan looked up. Nani saw a lake of tears, emotions and anger swimming in his eyes. Tamanna had noticed Armaan's anger.
Armaan: Chalo Tammy...
They both went away leaving Shashank, Padma and Nani speechless. They went inside where Ridhimaa and Anjali told them what all had happened.
Next day, Armaan went to take back his car in the morning. He fixed his car and then drove back to his house. On entering the house, he started searching for Tamanna. She wasn't in the kitchen, nor was she in the room. Armaan started to go to the stairs, where he found Tamanna sprawled on the ground near the last stair, blood running down her forehead and legs. She had fallen from the stairs. Armaan rushed to her.
Armaan: Tammy... Tammy...
Tamanna opened her eyes weakly. Blood was gushing out from the wound.
Tamanna: Aaah... Ammy... main... Ammy... mera pair...
She fainted. Armaan knew that her leg was fractured. But the main problem was that Tamanna was continuously losing blood. Armaan picked her up in his arms and moved out to his car. He placed her carefully in the back seat and drove his car to Sanjeevani. On reaching Sanjeevani, Armaan stopped two wardboys who were pleasantly surprised on seeing him alive. They put Tamanna on a stretcher and rushed inside. Armaan followed them, running.
Dr.Kirti was at the Nurse Station for the briefing session along with the interns.
Kirti: Good morning interns.
All: Good morning mam.
Kirti: Dr.Rahul,Dr.Anjali Path Lab. Dr.Muskaan OPD. Dr.Atul AIDS Ward. Dr.Ridhimaa ICU aur uske baad aap General Ward me bhi duty dengi.
Armaan came there running. The clipboard dropped from Kirti's hand on seeing Armaan. In her knowledge, Armaan was dead. All were surprised on seeing him running, out of breath. Tamanna had already been taken to the ICU. Sister Lovely was sitting on the Nurse Station and she gasped on seeing Armaan.
Armaan: (panting) Sister Lovely... ek... ek... patient ko admit karwaana hai...
Kirti: Dr.Armaan... aap zinda hain!
Armaan looked at her. Rahul came towards him.
Rahul: Kya hua Armaan?
Armaan: Wo Tammy... Tammy stairs se neeche gir gayi... use right leg me shaayad fracture ho gaya hai lekin sir par bahut chot lagi hai. Uska bahut blood loss pehle hi ho chuka hai... main jab ghar waapas gaya to kaafi khoon beh chuka tha... Sister... please admission form...
Lovely handed him the admission form. Armaan started filling it. He signed in the column of the patient's relative and handed back the form to Lovely.
Kirti: Dr.Armaan... aap... aap...
Armaan: Rahul... ICU me kiski duty hai? Koi senior doctor...
Rahul: Ridhimaa ki duty hai...
Armaan looked at Ridhimaa and then at Kirti.
Armaan: Mam please... main jaakar Tammy ko dekh sakta hoon please?
Kirti: Lekin Dr.Armaan... aap...
Ridhimaa rushed to the ICU.
Armaan: Mam please...
Kirti: OK aap ja sakte hain.
Armaan ran to the ICU.
Kirti: Interns back to your duties.
All the interns went away and Kirti went towards the ICU. Ridhimaa was meanwhile attending to Tamanna and was trying hard to save her from more blood loss.
Ridhimaa: Nurse... aap check kijiye ki patient ka blood group kya hai. Unhe blood ki zaroorat hai... urgent.
Nurse: Yes mam... main abhi karti hoon.
Armaan: (entering) Tammy ka blood group O+ hai.
Ridhimaa looked around, Armaan had entered the ICU. Nurse stared at Armaan
Ridhimaa: Nurse... aap dekh kya rahi hain? Jaldi se jaakar blood arrange kijiye... quick!
Nurse: Lekin doctor, Sanjeevani me is waqt to O+ blood hai hi nahi. Last bottle to abhi abhi ek patient ke liye use kar li gayi aur blood bank se aane me der ho sakti hai.
Kirti too had entered the ICU.
Kirti: Kya hua Dr.Ridhimaa, patient ab kaisi hai?
Ridhimaa: Mam O+ blood Sanjeevani me hai hi nahi aur inka bahut saara blood loss ho chuka hai... agar inhe turant blood nahi chadhaya gaya to inki condition critical ho sakti hai...
Ridhimaa: Armaan... tumhara blood group bhi to O+ hai...
Armaan: (remembering) Haan... mera bhi to...
Armaan gave two bottles of blood to Tamanna. Then he again came back to the ICU. Ridhimaa was stitching Tamanna's wound.
Armaan: (approaching her) Tum pair par plaster chadha do... stitches main kar dunga.
Ridhimaa: Lekin Armaan... abhi tum weak ho...
But when Armaan persisted, Ridhimaa went and bandaged Tamanna's leg. Armaan did the stitches and then bandaged her head. Kirti had gone to inform Shubhankar of Armaan's returning back. Both Armaan and Ridhimaa went to wash their hands.
But Armaan did not want to talk to her. He finished washing his hands and went inside.
Ridhimaa: Wardboy, patient ko room me shift kar dijiye.
Tamanna was shifted to the room. Armaan followed her. Ridhimaa remained in the ICU. Shubhankar and Kirti came there.
Shubhankar: Dr.Ridhimaa... wo Dr.Armaan... wo zinda hain?
Ridhimaa: Yes sir.
Kirti: Lekin kaise? Hume to unki body bhi mili thi...
Ridhimaa: Armaan zinda hai.
Kirti: Aur Shubhankar Dr.Armaan kaafi changed dikh rahe hain.
Shubhankar: Wo hai kahan?
Ridhimaa: Abhi Tamanna ko room me shift kiya gaya hai. Wahi gaya hai Armaan.
Shubhankar: Ye Tamanna kaun hai?
Ridhimaa had no answer for that.
PART 166: Arman was sitting beside Tamanna's bed on a chair. He had never dreamt that he would come back to Sanjeevani and that too in this situation. Tamanna was looking pale. Armaan took her hand and kissed it. Tamanna slowly opened her eyes.
Armaan: Tammy... kaisi ho? Zyada dard to nahi ho raha na?
Tammy: I am fine.
The interns, Kirti and Shubhankar reached Tamanna's room but stopped at the door.
Armaan: Pata hai main kitna darr gaya tha... agar tumhe kuch ho jaata to...
Tamanna: Par kuch hua to nahi na. Galti meri hi thi... main hi jaldi jaldi me seedhi se...
Armaan: Haan galti tumhari hi hai. Tumhi ne force kiya tha na mujhe Mumbai aane ke liye. Maine tumse kitna mana kiya lekin tum meri baat kahan sunti ho.
Tamanna: Ammy... ye ek accident tha. Aur achha hai, ab hum Mumbai me kuch aur din reh sakenge. Yahaan par log kitne achhe hain.
Armaan: Tumhe achhe lagte honge. Mujhse poocho... pata hai... koi khwaab jitna mazboot hota hai, jitni shiddat se dekha jaata hai, uske tootne par dard bhi utna hi zyada hota hai.
The pain in Armaan's voice did not go unnoticed by anyone.
Armaan: Achha... ab tum so jao. Tumhe aaraam ki zaroorat hai...
Tamanna: Ammy... gaana sunao na... tumhara gaana sunkar neend bahut achhi aati hai.
Armaan: Is waqt?
Tamanna: Haan... abhi...
Armaan gave up. He had to sing. He could do anything for Tamanna. Tamanna closed her eyes. Armaan started stroking her hair.
Hai humi se zindagi...
Taare hum zameen par le aayein,
Hum laaye hain roshni...
Aisa manzar aur kahan...
Hum to chale,
The dost banke,
Dill Mill Gayye... Tamanna was asleep. The song finished. Armaan hummed the song for a while. Then he bent down to kiss Tamanna's forehead. Ridhimaa was shocked to see him so close to Tamanna.
Shubhankar knocked on the door. Armaan looked up. They all came in.
Rahul: Ab Tamanna kaisi hai?
Armaan: Theek hai.
Shubhankar nodded at Rahul and encouraged him to go on.
Rahul: Armaan hua kya tha? Tere kidnap ki video to terrorists ne news channels ko bheji thi lekin fir... Inspector Tiwari ne hume ek body dikhayi. Humne use identify bhi kiya tha... ye samajhkar ki wo tu hai...
Armaan: Wonderful! Really!
Rahul: Armaan... tu nahi batayega to fir mujhe Tamanna se poochna padega.
Armaan: Nahi... main batata hoon... use mat uthaana...
Armaan told Rahul how he was kidnapped, how he escaped from their clutches and then there was the bomb blast. All were horrified. Rahul hugged him.
Rahul: Thank God tum theek ho.
Armaan: You might. I don't.
Rahul: Kya matlab?
Armaan: Kuch nahi.
Rahul: Armaan tum itne din kahaan the? Tumhe Tamanna kahaan par mili?
Armaan: Main usi ke pass tha itne din. Tammy ne meri bahut madad ki. Agar wo nahi hoti to shayad main kuch bhi nahi kar paata. Usi ke kehne par maine apni nayi identity banayi. Radio City join kiya... fir album nikaali.
Shubhankar looked at Atul who nodded.
Shubhankar: Dr.Armaan aap... Tu Zindagi aapki album hai?
Armaan kept mum.
Rahul: Yes sir. Hum sabko lagta tha ki humne ye awaaz kahin suni hui hai... lekin humme se koi pehchaan nahi paaya ki ye Armaan ki hi awaaz hai.
Armaan knew that Rahul was wrong. Ridhimaa had recognised his voice.
Armaan: Rahul... tu please Tammy ko manaayega?
Rahul: Kis baat ke liye?
Armaan: Wo yahaan pe kuch din aur rukna chahti hai... aur main use yahaan akela nahi chod sakta.
Rahul: Tu chala jayega?
Armaan: Haan... main to aana hi nahi chahta tha...
Rahul: Lekin Tamanna is haalat me to hospital se bhi baahar nahi ja sakti. Tujhe khud pata hai, uske pair me fracture hua hai aur uske sir ki chot bhi gehri hai. Aise me tu use itna stress kyun dena chahta hai?
Armaan: Wo main...
Rahul: Tujhe jaana ho to ja. Yahaan par main uska khayaal rakh lunga.
Rahul knew he had hit the bull's eye. Armaan would not go leaving Tamanna alone. But the others did not know that Armaan really cared about Tamanna.
Shubhankar: Lekin Dr.Rahul...
Rahul quelled Shubhankar with a look.
Armaan: Main Tammy ko akele chod kar kaise ja sakta hoon?
Rahul: Ye teri problem hai.
Armaan: Aisa bol na ki tu meri help hi nahi karna chahta. Tu jaanta hai ki main Tamanna se kitna pyar karta hoon... isiliye tu aisa keh raha hai, hai na?
Rahul smiled. The others were surprised. Armaan loved Tamanna and Rahul knew about it.
Shubhankar: Dr.Armaan... wo hume kehna tha ki Dr.Rahul ne hume sachhai bata di hai. Hume pata chal gaya hai ki Mr.Mallik jhooth bol rahe the... aap waise nahi hain jaisa unhone portray kiya tha...
Armaan glared at Rahul who averted his eyes from him.
Armaan: Maine tujhe mana kiya tha na...
Rahul: Wo... wo... I could not stop myself... sorry. Lekin sachhai batani bhi to zaroori thi...
Atul: Armaan... agar Rahul hume nahi bataata to hum ab bhi tujhe galat samajh rahe hote. Lekin ab jabki hume pata chal gaya hai to hum sab tujhe bataana chahte hain ki...
Armaan: (rudely) Stop it Dr.Joshi. I don't want to hear nor do I care what you all think about me.
Atul was stunned.
Anjali: Lekin Armaan... we are really sorry...
Armaan: Oh really! Well maine kaha na, I don't care.
Muskaan: Armaan.. hum maante hain ki hum galat the...
Armaan: Please... I don't want to listen. Mujhe issey koi fark nahi padta ki aap sab mere baare me kya sochte hain. Aapki sorrys ka mujh par koi asar nahi hoga. Main sab kuch bhool kar ek nayi zindagi shuru kar chuka hoon aur usme aap sabki koi jagah nahi hai. So please...
Kirti: Lekin Dr.Armaan...
Armaan: (standing up) Aap sab janna chahte hain ki main kyun waapas nahi aaya? To suniye. Main aap sabse nafrat karta hoon, nafrat. Maine usi din aap sabko apne dil se nikaal diya tha jab aap sabne mujhe itni nafrat se khud se door kiya tha. Aap sab is galat fehmi me nahi rahiyega ki main waapas aa gaya hoon. Jaise hi Tamanna theek ho jaayegi, main chala jaunga. Aap sabki zindagi se door, pehle ki tarah. Isliye aap sabka mujhe mara hua samajhna hi theek hai. Main kisi se bhi koi bhi rishta nahi rakhna chahta. Wo log jo ek baar mujhpar kisi ajnabee ke kehne par rishta tod sakte hain, main unse dubaara rishta jodna nahi chahta.
Saying so, Armaan left the room. He met Ridhimaa at the door with her tear filled eyes but did not stop. He went to the General Ward to meet Bi. Tamanna had heard everything but she did not open her eyes.
PART 167: Bi was overwhelmed on meeting Armaan. Armaan's eyes too filled with tears on finding someone who really loved him. He was so depressed that he kept his head on Bi's lap and started crying, just like a small child. All were gazing at him. Nana too was sitting, watching Armaan cry. When Ridhimaa reached the General Ward, the scene met her eyes. Shashank had also come on his rounds and found Armaan crying.
Bi: Ammy... mere bachhe... kahan chala gaya tha tu? Apni Bi ko akele chodkar chala gaya tha?
Armaan: Sorry Bi...
Armaan's tears were wetting Bi's lap.
Armaan: Bi... aap kehti thi na... ki mere saath bahut bura ho chuka... aapka khuda ab mujhe koi takleef nahi dega. Lekin dekhiye Bi... mujhe to takleefon par takleef milti hi ja rahi hai... Bi... main tootna nahi chahta... main kya karun Bi?
Bi: Mere bachhe... maine tere liye kitni duayen ki thi... ek bhi dua kubool nahi hui... mujhe maaf kar de Ammy...
Armaan: Bi... shayad main hoon hi itna bura ki mujhe kisi ki duayen nahi lagti. Saari khushiyan mujhse chhin jaati hain. Humsha... pehle papa hum sabko akela chod kar chale gaye, fir ma bhi mujhe is duniya me akela chodkar chali gayi. Maine kisi se kabhi bhi ye baat share nahi ki... lekin Bi... mujhe unki bahut yaad aati hai. Agar unhe jaana hi tha to mujhe bhi saath le jaati... mujhe kyun chod gayi Bi? Kyun?
Bi: Ammy... mat ro...
Armaan: Bi... uske baad main Mumbai aaya. Maine socha ki shayad yahan par mujhe khushiyan mil jaayein. Aur mujhe mili bhi... dher saari khushiyan... lekin Bi... fir ek din mujhse sab kuch chhin gaya... wo sab jinhe main apna samjhta tha... sabne mujhe paraya kar diya... maine sabse itna pyar kiya... fir bhi sabne mujhe hi galat samjha... Atul... jise maine bhai samjha... usne mujhe dhokhebaaz kaha... Bi maine kisi ko dhokha nahi diya... main to sabko muhabbat dena chahta tha...
Bi: Mujhe pata hai Ammy...
Armaan: Bi... Atul, Muskaan, Anjali... sab mujhse nafrat karte hain. In sabki nafrat to main kisi tarah seh bhi leta Bi... lekin mujhe to usne maar daala jise maine apni zindagi samjha tha... Ridhimaa ne aisa kyun kiya Bi... usne mere saath aisa kyun kiya? Wo to mujhe sabse achhe se jaanti thi na Bi... maine to use har takleef se bachane ki koshish ki thi lekin usne... usne hi mujhe takleefon ke andhere jungle me bhej diya... Bi... mujhe humesha muhabbaton me dhokha kyun milta hai Bi? Na pita ki muhabbat mili, na doston ki, na Ridhimaa ki... Kya main kisi ki muhabbat ke laayak nahi hoon Bi? Bi... please mujhe batao na... mera kusoor kya hai? Maine kya kiya? Maine to papa se nahi kaha tha ki wo bure banein? Maine to unhe waapas laane ki koshish bhi ki thi... agar unke meri ma ko itna dukh dene par mujhe unse nafrat ho gayi to main kya karun? Isme meri kya galti hai? Sabne mujhe kyun galat samjha... mere apne papa ne meri khushiyan kyun cheen li Bi, kyun?
Armaan was crying unstoppably. Ridhimaa and Shashank were standing petrified at the door of the General Ward.
Bi: Bas kar Ammy... rona band kar... mujhse tera rona nahi dekha jaata...
Armaan raised his face. The spectacles were gone. He was looking very distressed. Tears were still seeping down from his eyes. This was the first time that everyone was seeing him crying so badly, even Bi.
Armaan: (still crying) Bi... main bahut bura hoon na... aaj aapko bhi rula diya... main bahut bura hoon... isiliye sab mujhse nafrat karte hain... fir aap mujhse kyun pyar karti hain? Aap bhi mujhse nafrat kariye... main isike laayak hoon. Kabhi kisi ko khushi nahi de sakta... main jhootha, dhokhebaaz...
Bi: Nahi Ammy... tu bahut achha hai...
Armaan: Nahi Bi... main bahut bura hoon. Aap wahaan nahi thi... aapne nahi dekha kis tarah sab log mujhse nafrat kar rahe the. Kis tarah Atul ne mujhe dhokhebaaz kaha, Ridhimaa ne mere pyar, meri muhabbat ko naatak kaha... aur Dr.Shashank ne mujhe bola ki main sirf unke paison ke liye Ridhimaa se... Bi agar mujhe paise hi chahiye hote to main to ye kaam bahut pehle hi kar sakta tha... main unki beti ke liye khud ki jaan kyun khatre me daalta? Bi... main sach me Ridhimaa se pyar karta tha... sach me...
Bi hugged him tightly. Armaan wiped his tears off roughly.
Bi: Mujhe pata hai Ammy ki tu usse bahut pyar karta hai.
Armaan: Nahi Bi. Ab main kisi se pyar nahi karta. Sabse nafrat karta hoon. Main kisi ke bulaane se waapas nahi aaunga.
Bi: Ammy... meri baat sun. Sabko unki galti pata chal gayi hai... sab tujhe bahut pyar karte hain... aur Ridhimaa bhi...
Armaan: Please Bi. Mujhe koi baat nahi sunni. Jitni sunni thi... utni main bahut pehle hi sun chuka hoon. Ab main kisi ka vishwaas nahi kar sakta... kyunki jab vishwaas tootta hai to bahut bura lagta hai... bahut dard hota hai.
Armaan's eyes again filled with tears.
Armaan: Maine kisi ko dhokha nahi diya Bi... maine to... maine to khud Ridhimaa se kaha tha ki agar use mujhse kuch bhi poochna hai, yahan tak ki mere papa ke bare me to pooch le. Lekin usne ye kehkar mana kar diya ki wo mujhe jaanti hai, wahi uske liye kaafi hai... lekin Bi... fir wo mujhse kyun door ho gayi? Kya wo mujhe nahi jaanti thi? Main jo itne din uske pass raha, usne mujhe chodkar ek doosre aadmi ka vishwaas kar liya. Rishta todne se pehle ek baar bhi nahi socha. Nahi Bi. Main thak gaya hoon... har baar mujhe dukh hota hai... lekin sirf ek ladki ki wajah se main wo dukh bhool jaata hoon, iska matlab ye nahi ki mere khwaabon ko har baar tod diya jaaye. Nahi Bi... ab main koi khwaab dekhunga hi nahi jinke tootne se mujhe dard ho. Main to marna chahta tha lekin Ridhimaa ne mujhse waada liya tha... ab main Tamanna ke theek hote hi waapas chala jaunga... kabhi yahan nahi aaunga.
Bi: Tum mujhe chodkar chale jaoge Ammy?
Armaan: Bi... main... to fir aap bhi mere saath chalo. Tamanna ne apna private clinic khola hai... lekin shayad yahan aapka ilaaj zyada achhe se ho... jab aap theek ho jayengi tab main aapko lene aa jaunga.
Armaan: Nahi Bi. Main bahut sun chuka, aur bahut keh chuka. Ab mujhme aur himmat nahi hai...
Bi had started to cry.
Armaan: Nahi Bi... roiyega nahi... main aur dard nahi jhel sakta. Agar aap mujhse pyar karti hain to na roiyega aur na hi mujhe rokiyega. Ab main is jagah me nahi reh sakta jahaan koi mera apna na ho.
Armaan stood up. He moved towards the door but due to his vision obscurred with tears, he bumped into Shashank.
Armaan quickly wiped off his tears and saw Shashank standing before him. Ridhimaa was standing next to Shashank, white faced. Armaan again put on his glasses to hide his eyes.
But Armaan's mobile started vibrating. He glanced at the mobile. The call was from Tamanna.
He ran away from there to Tamanna's room. Ridhimaa and Shashank followed him. Armaan entered the room. Tamanna was awake. Atul,Rahul,Muskaan and Anjali were sitting beside her bed. Armaan came to her other side and pulled up a chair for himself.
Armaan: (holding her hand) Kya hua Tammy?
Tamanna: Ammy... dekho na. Ye sab log mujhe ye kadwi dawaai khaane ko keh rahe hain.
Armaan knew that Tamanna not at all liked taking medicines. She hated having them, though she herself was a doctor. Ridhimaa smiled. She too did not like medicines.
Armaan: Kaun tumhe medicines de raha tha? Naam batao.
Tamanna: Ye sab... Ammy... tum mujhe dawaai khaane ko to nahi kahoge na?
Armaan: Nahi... main apni Tammy ko dawaai kyun khilaunga? Tum doodh piyogi? Tumhe bahut achha lagta hai na?
Tamanna: Haan... thanks Ammy. I love you.
Armaan: I know, I love you too Tammy. Aur Dr.Gupta, aap ye dawaaiyan baahar le jaakar rakh dijiye.
Armaan and Ridhimaa got up and went out. Ridhimaa took the tray of medicines. Armaan asked a wardboy to bring a glass of hot milk and some Bournvita. Ridhimaa proceeded to take away the medicines.
Armaan: Ek minute Dr.Gupta...
The wardboy brought the milk. Armaan took the medicines and dropped it in the milk. Then he mixed some Bournvita in it.
Ridhimaa: Armaan... use pata chal jaayega.
Armaan: Nahi chalega... Bournvita ka taste medicines ke taste ko counter balance kar lega.
Armaan went back inside. Ridhimaa followed him. Armaan gave the glass of milk to Tamanna. She drank it.
Tamanna: Iska taste thoda alag sa hai na?
Armaan: Haan... wo yahan par special Bournvita milta hai. Tumhe achha nahi laga?
Tamanna: Nahi, achha hai.
Tamanna drank the milk and then, due to the effect of medicines, she again went back to sleep.
Shashank: Lekin Armaan... ise medicines to khaani padegi. Otherwise...
Ridhimaa: Armaan ne medicines doodh me mix kar di thi papa, jaise aap bachpan me mere doodh me medicines daal dete the... lekin mujhe humesha pata chal jaata tha.
PART 168: Armaan sat down beside Tamanna's bed.
Armaan: Tammy ne neend khulne par kuch kaha tha Rahul?
Rahul: Aisa ho sakta hai Tamanna jagi ho aur kuch na bole?
Armaan: No... it's impossible. Mera matlab tha ki kuch khaas?
Rahul: Haan wo tumse apna bag aur laptop mangwa rahi thi.
Armaan: Laptop! Kyun? Laptop ka kya karegi?
Rahul: Aaj tera interview telecast hona hai na shaam ko, wahi dekhna hai use.
Armaan: Oh! To main ja raha hoon. Rahul... teri duties to khatm ho gayi hongi na. Jab tak main na aaun, tab tak tu Tammy ke pass rukega?
Rahul: Sure... Armaan... tu ghar ja, thoda sa araam kar le, kuch kha le, fir aa jaana.
Armaan: Theek hai... main jaldi aane ki koshish karunga. Tab tak tu jaana nahi.
Rahul: Haan baba... teri Tammy ko akela chod kar nahi jaunga.
Armaan went away satisfied. The others were curious that who this Tamanna was.
Muskaan: Rahul... ye Tamanna hai kaun? Aur tu ise kaise jaanta hai?
Rahul: Tamanna humare saath college me padhti thi, ek saal junior thi humse.
Rahul: Aur... kya matlab?
Atul: Kewal tum logon ke saath college me padhti thi, lekin wo baat to aise karti hai jaise barson se jaanti ho tumhe.
Rahul: Tumne dekha na kaisi hai wo. Wo to tum logon ke saath bhi aise hi baat karti hai. You know, she's just like Muskaan. Use bhi bolna bahut pasand hai. College ka har function uske bina adhoora hota tha. Har topic par ghanton bol sakti hai... she's very sweet.
Muskaan: Wo to dikh hi raha hai!
Rahul: Muskaan! Tera to dimaag hi ganda hai.
Anjali: Aur Armaan... Armaan ka issey kya connection hai?
Rahul: I don't understand tum kya kehna chah rahi ho.
Anjali: You know what I mean. Armaan ko maine sirf Ridhimaa ke itna close hote hue dekha hai. Lekin ye dono ek doosre ko I love you etc. bol rahe the... aur Armaan jis tarah se Tamanna ke saath...
Rahul kept mum.
Muskaan: Bol na Rahul.
Rahul: Main zyada to nahi bata sakta kyunki Armaan ne mujhe mana kiya hai, lekin itna zaroor bata sakta hoon ki Tamanna bahut achhi ladki hai. Ek wahi hai jise aaj Armaan apna samajhta hai aur use zara sa bhi dukhi nahi dekh sakta. Wo use zindagi ke har gam se bachaana chahta hai. Uske aansun Armaan ki kamzori hain. Uske liye Armaan kuch bhi kar sakta hai. He really cares for her a lot. Bahut pyar karta hai ussey.
Anjali: Aur Ridhimaa... Armaan to Ridhimaa se pyar karta hai...
Ridhimaa: Karta hai nahi, karta tha. Maine khud usey ye Bi ko kehte hue suna tha...
Rahul: Tum log ek baar fir se Armaan ko bahut galat samajh rahe ho. Kuch bhi sochne se pehle ek baar sachhai jaanne ki koshish zaroor karna.
Muskaan: To tu bata kyun nahi raha ki Armaan aur Tamanna ka chakkar kya hai?
Rahul: Armaan ne mujhe apni kasam de rakhi hai. Main is baare me kuch nahi bata sakta. Armaan Tamanna ki bahut care karta hai, uski padhaai aur practice ke liye bhi Armaan hi paise bhejta rehta tha...
Atul: (remembering something) Rahul... kahin ye Tamanna wahi to nahi jiske liye Armaan ne apni will me saadhe pandrah laakh rupaye rakhe hain?
Anjali: Kya? Saadhe pandrah laakh rupaye?
Rahul: Anjali... Armaan ne hum sabke liye kuch na kuch apni will me rakha hai. Tum is baat ko itna seriously kyun le rahi ho? Aur mujhe pata hai ki itna sab ho jaane ke baad bhi Armaan ne apni will change nahi karaayi hogi.
Shashank: Hume Armaan ko thoda time dena chahiye...
Anjali: Par aapko to us par yakeen nahi hai na?
Shashank: Aaj ho gaya hai. Jis tarah se Armaan apni Bi ke pass is tarah se ro raha tha... mujhe pata chal gaya hai ki hum sabse, khaaskar mujhse bahut badi galti ho gayi hai. Hume uske saath aisa nahi karna chahiye tha...
Anjali: Haan... aur Armaan to humse baat tak nahi karna chahta.
Rahul: Shayad uska faisla sahi hai. Hum sab ne itna kuch kiya...
Atul: Lekin abhi to Armaan kuch din yahan rukega na. Tab tak hum use manaane ki poori koshish karenge.
Ridhimaa: Di... chalein?
Anjali: Abhi thodi der rukte hain Ridz. Tamanna se mil kar jayenge.
Atul: Mujhe to Armaan ka interview dekhna hai. Main ghar jaata hoon.
Anjali: Kisne socha tha ki wo Radio City waala Dil Armaan hoga? Tabhi uski awaaz me itna dard hota tha...
Muskaan: Arrey... Armaan apne glasses yahi chod gaya.
She picked them up and examined them.
Muskaan: Lekin inme to power nahi hai... fir Armaan inhe kyun lagata hai?
Rahul: Apni aankhen chupaane ke liye. Use lagta hai ki shayad inhe lagaane se hume uske emotions ka pata nahi chalgea.
Muskaan: Waise kafi hansome laga raha hai aajkal wo. Lekin colour sirf black hi pehenta hai... arrey main to bhool gayi. Armaan ka interview aane waala hai na. Rahul chal na.
Rahul: Lekin Armaan ke aane tak to mujhe yahan rukna hoga.
Muskaan: Dhatt tere ki.
The four of them sit down. After an hour, Tamanna woke up.
Rahul: Hey Tamanna... ab kaisa feel kar rahi ho?
Tamanna: Fine... Ammy kahan hai?
Rahul: Wo tumhara bag laane gaya hai...
Tamanna: Aur laptop?
Muskaan: Haan wo bhi.
Tamanna: Oh! I forgot! Congratulations Rahul!
Tamanna: For your marriage of course!
Rahul and Muskaan looked at each other.
Tamanna: To kab milwa rahe ho apni wife se?
Rahul: Tum kaho to abhi milwa doon.
Rahul: Yes... Tamanna, meet my wife, Muskaan.
Tamanna: Oh! Tum Rahul ki wife ho? He's so lucky!
Tamanna: Aur ye dono Dr.Shashank ki daughters hain na? Kal main inke ghar gayi thi.
Tamanna: Haan Ridhimaa ki tabiyat kharaab thi na... main andar jaana chaah rahi thi lekin Ammy ne jaane nahi diya.
Anjali: Usne tumhe sab kuch bataaya jo humne uske saath...
Tamanna: Haan kuch kuch to bataaya tha ki tum logon ne uske father ki baat sunkar... use...
Anjali: We are really very sorry for it. Lekin Rahul ne hume sach bata diya tha. Hum log Armaan ko dhoondhne ja rahe the tabhi kidnap, fir wo bomb blast... hume laga ki uski death ke liye hum log zimmedaar hain.
Tears were again flowing down from Ridhimaa's eyes. Tamanna understood that they were really sorry for what they had done.
Tamanna: I understand. Ye ek misunderstanding thi. Aap logon ko us aadmi ki baaton ka vishwaas karna pada... ek to wo Armaan ke papa the aur fir wo marne ki haalat me the. Main samjhti hoon...
Ridhimaa: Lekin hume bina sach jaaney Armaan par ilzaam nahi lagaana chahiye tha...
Tamanna was moved on seeing her cry.
Tamanna: Ridhimaa... tum ro kyun rahi ho? Kal bhi Armaan ko dekhte hi rone lagi thi. Please ro mat.
Anjali: Armaan ne tumhe hum logon ke baare me sab kuch bataaya?
Tamanna: Ammy to kuch bhi bataana nahi chahta tha... maine use bahut force kiya tab jaakar usne mujhe bataya ki uske saath kya hua hai. Lekin kisike bhi naam nahi bataaye.
PART 169:Rahul: Kisike bhi?
Tamanna: Except yours. Usne bataaya tha ki usne tumhe kisiko bhi sach batane se mana kiya hai.
Rahul: Haan lekin maine...
Tamanna: Tumne theek hi kiya. Ammy to bewkoof hai. Tum sach nahi bataate to ye log aaj bhi use galat samajh rahe hote... waise tum logon ko us ladki ka naam pata hai jissey Armaan pyar karta tha?
Muskaan: Usne tumhe nahi bataya?
Tamanna: Nahi... jab bhi main wo topic discuus karti... wo wahan se chala jaata. Bahut pyar karta tha wo usse... bhoolne ko tayyar hi nahi.
Tamanna: Tum logon ko to uske baare me pata hoga na? Please mujhe bhi batao.
Rahul looked at Ridhimaa who shook her head in refusal.
Rahul: Jab Armaan ne tumhe is baare me nahi bataaya to hum bhi nahi bata sakte.
Tamanna: Lekin mujhe jaanna hai ki wo ladki kaun hai jisne mere Ammy ko itne dukh diye. Wo kaun hai jise Ammy ka pyar bhi nahi jeet paya?
Ridhimaa again started crying. Tamanna was worried.
Tamanna: Ridhimaa mat ro na please... agar Ammy aa gaya to...
Just then Armaan entered with Tamanna's bag and laptop.
Armaan: (placing the laptop on the table) Ye lo Tammy... main le aaya... mujhe zyada der to nahi hui?
But Tamanna was looking very worried and was gazing at Ridhimaa. Armaan too glanced at Ridhimaa and found her crying. Then he again looked back at Tamanna, knowing that she must have said something unknowingly.
Tamanna: Ammy... mujhe is tarah se kyun dekh rahe ho? Maine kuch nahi kiya. Ye to khud hi rone lagi. I swear... maine jaan boojhkar nahi rulaya... pooch lo...
Armaan: Tammy... relax. Main tumhe blame kahan kar raha hoon?
Tamanna: Ridhimaa... ab to rona band kar do. Dekho... ab to Armaan bhi aa gaya hai...
Ridhimaa ran away from there. Anjali followed her.
Tamanna: Arrey... Rahul... jaakar dekho na...
Rahul: Tamanna... wo log chali gayi hongi.
Tamanna: Lekin kyun? Maine kya kiya?
Rahul: Tumne kuch nahi kiya... wo to Ridhimaa bas aise hi...
Tamanna: Aise hi? Aise hi kabhi koi rota hai? Rahul jao use lekar aao.
Rahul left. After a few minutes he came back with Ridhimaa and Anjali.
Tamanna: Ridhimaa I am sorry... maine to...
Ridhimaa: Tamanna... main to bas aise hi ro rahi thi... isme tumhari kya galti hai?
Tamanna: Tum mujhse gussa to nahi ho?
She again turned to leave.
Tamanna: Ridhimaa... ruko na. Ammy ka interview bas shuru hi hone waala hai.
Muskaan: Kya? Rahul ke bachhe... maine kaha tha na tujhse...
Tamanna: Tum log bhi yahin dekh lo na...
Muskaan: Sach? Thank you Tamanna.
Tamanna: You're most welcome.
Muskaan sat down again. Ridhimaa wanted to leave but Tamanna pulled her hand and made her sit beside Armaan. The interview started. When Armaan told about his sadness, Ridhimaa could hardly control her tears. She didn't wanted to cry in front of Armaan, when he no longer loved her. But when he answered why he had sung the duet songs alone, Ridhimaa glanced at him unwantedly. Armaan's eyes were closed. He suddenly opened his eyes and found Ridhimaa averting her gaze from him. The interview ended.
Rahul: Wow! Armaan. Bahut achha interview tha.
Tamanna: Maine bhi yahi kaha tha... tumne suna... Ammy ne mera naam bhi liya tha...
She was feeling happy like a child who had just won a prize. Armaan smiled.
Armaan: Maine tumhare naam par gaana bhi to gaaya tha...
Tamanna: Usme kewal naam hi to mera tha... chehra to kisi aur ka tha, hai na Ammy?
Armaan kept mum.
Rahul: Really Armaan... tumhari album ka har gaana dil ko chhoo lene waala hai.
Tamanna: Rahul.. tumhara favourite gaana kaun sa hai us album me se?
Rahul: Mera? 'Dill Mill Gayye'.
Tamanna: Muskaan tumhara?
Muskaan: Mera to 'Ehsaas ke labon pe' waala favourite hai. Lekin 'Dill Mil Gayye' bhi bahut achha hai.
Tamanna: Anjali... tumhara?
Anjali: Mera favourite: 'Maine chaand aur sitaaron ki Tamanna ki thi'... aur tumhara?
Tamanna: Mera bhi yahi hai. Jab mere naam par gaana hai to mera favourite to yahi hona chahiye, hai na?
Tamanna: Aur tumhara Ridz?
Ridhimaa was surprised on Tamanna calling her Ridz.
Tamanna: Kya hua? Main tumhe Ridz bula sakti hoon na? Rahul ke alaawa sab log tumhe Ridz keh kar bulaate hain to maine socha...
Ridhimaa: Haan... of course.
Rahul: Main kisi ka bhi naam nahi bigaadta.
Muskaan: Haan... pata hai, pata hai.
Tamanna: Ridz, tumhara favourite song kaun sa hai?
Anjali: Ridz ke to saare hi favourite hain. Din bhar yahi sunti rehti hai. Lekin use 'Asmaani Rang Ho' aur 'Ishq Leta Hai', ye do songs bahut pasand hain.
Tamanna: Surprising. Ammy ke bhi yahi do favourite songs hain.
Rahul: Aur tumhare Ammy ka Dill Mill Gayye to jaise humari Sanjeevani ka national anthem ban gaya hai. Bahut relate karte hain hum Sanjeevani ko issey.
Rahul: Kyunki yahan par bahut si friendships pyar me convert hui hain. Jaise Atul, Anjali; Dr.Kirti, Dr.Shubhankar;
Tamanna: Tum aur Muskaan...
Rahul: Aur Armaan aur...
Rahul stopped. Ridhimaa and Armaan both glared at him at the same time.
Tamanna: Armaan aur?
Armaan: Tammy! Maine mana kiya tha na...
Tamanna: OK... OK. Ammy... tum 'Ishq Leta Hai' sunao na.
Armaan: Kyun? Main koi radio hoon jo har samay bajta rahoon?
Tamanna: Ammy... please. Ye to tumhara aur Ridz ka favourite song hai. Please Ammy... please...
Armaan: Bas karo Tammy... main suna raha hoon.
Armaan started to sing. Ridhimaa was sitting beside him. Therefore, there were more emotions in the song and he sung it more beautifully than he had done in the album.
Ishq leta hai kaise imtihaan...
Ishq me jiyun... ishq me marun,
Ishq hi mera bhagwaan...
Haaye rabba... tu hi meri jaan,
Tu hi jahaan... tu hi meri manzil,
Tere ishq me main qurbaan... main qurbaan...
Ishq me deewaangi ki hadd se guzar jaun,
Tere pyar me aaj main jeekar mar jaun,
Ishq me jalte hain hum raat din... raat din...
Haan ye mera dil na maane tere bin... tere bin...
Samaa rahi hai tu jism-o-jaan me,
Chali jaayegi jaan is imtihaan me,
Ab mujhko hai maalum... ki tu hai mera junoon...
Tu hi mera rab zindagi.... tujhse hi mera sukoon...
Haaye rabba... Armaan finished singing.
Tamanna: Aaj to tumne Album se bhi achha gaaya. Hai na Ridz?
Armaan's gaze drifted sideways towards Ridhimaa who had been mesmerised by the song.
Ridhimaa: Haan? Haan...
Tamanna: Ridhimaa... kabhi kabhi tum mujhe bilkul Ammy ki tarah lagti ho.
PART 170:Rahul: Wo kaise?
Tamanna: Dekho na... ye choti choti baat par gussa ho jaana, is tarah gaane me poori tarah se kho jaana, itne pyar se baat karna, sabki itni care karna... bilkul waise jaise Ammy karta hai.
Anjali: Tuhare Ammy ne humari Ridz se ye baatein seekhi hongi. Ridz to humesha se aisi hi thi.
Tamanna: Haan lekin Ammy aisa nahi tha. Wo tum logon ke saath rehte, rehte bahut change ho gaya hai.
Rahul: Waise ek baat aur common hai Ridhimaa aur Armaan me.
Tamanna: What? Ridz tum basketball khelti ho?
Muskaan: Khelti hai? Champion hai basket ball ki.
Tamanna: Fir bhi Ammy se achha nahi khel sakti. He's the best.
Muskaan: Humari Ridz tumhare Ammy ko hara chuki hai... basketball ke one-to-one match me.
She looked towards Armaan who did not like to take part in the conversation.
Rahul: Armaan bata na Tamanna ko ki kaun zyada achha khelta hai, tu ya Ridhimaa.
Armaan looked at Rahul.
Armaan: Tammy, tumhe bhookh lagi hogi na? Main tumhare liye khaana laaya hoon.
Tamanna: Ammy tumne answer nahi diya... Ridhimaa ne tumhe basketball me haraya tha?
Armaan: Tum bhi kiski baatein lekar baith gayi inke saamne? Main to jhootha, dhokhebaaz etc... etc. insaan hoon. How can you compare me with them?
Armaan helped Tamanna sit up. Rahul, Muskaan, Anjali and Ridhimaa got up.
Rahul: Tamanna ab hum log chalte hain. You take care.
Tamanna: OK... bye... Bye Ridz!
Ridhimaa kissed Tamanna's forehead and left. She really liked Tamanna. The others too left. Tamanna ate the food which Armaan had brought with him.
Tamanna: Ammy tumne kha liya?
Armaan: Haan... main ghar se khakar aaya tha...
Tamanna: Ammy... ab tum ghar jao bahut raat ho rahi hai.
Armaan: Main tumhe chodkar aaj to nahi jaunga. Tum so jao...
Tamanna: Lekin Ammy...
Armaan closed Tamanna's eyes by placing his hand.
Armaan: Good night.
Tamanna: Good night.
Tamanna was a sleep in a few minutes. Armaan kissed her forehead on the same spot which Ridhimaa's lips had caressed minutes before. Then he went and sat on the sofa and took out his own laptop, on which he used to write and compose songs and started on a new song.
Armaan slept late that night. Infact he didn't knew when he went to sleep. He was sitting on the sofa, with the laptop in front of him and he had fallen asleep in that very position. Next day, in the morning Ridhimaa entered the room to meet Tamanna. She was still asleep. Then her gaze fell on Armaan who was sleeping in such an awkward position. She first picked up his laptop and proceeded to close it down but her eyes caught the new song which Armaan had completed in the night. She was overwhelmed with emotions as she read the song. Then she placed the laptop back on the table.
Ridhimaa: Armaan... Armaan...
She could not touch Armaan. She just called him. A few moments later, Armaan opened his eyes and saw Ridhimaa. He thought that he was still dreaming. He rubbed his eyes and found that it was real. Armaan sat up straight.
Armaan first thought was that something was wrong but Ridhimaa cleared his doubts.
Ridhimaa: Armaan ghar jaakar so jao...
Armaan: (glancing at Tamanna) Nahi...
Then Armaan got up. He was fully awake now. He came near Tamanna and placed his hand on her forehead. He took up a writing pad and started writing a note for Tamanna.
Note: Tammy... main fresh hone ghar ja raha hoon. Thodi der me waapas aa jaunga. Love you, Armaan.
He placed the note on the table beside her.
Armaan: Dr.Gupta, agar Tammy uthe to use ye note de dijiyega.
Saying so, Armaan left without a further glance at Ridhimaa. Ridhimaa sat down on the sofa. The other interns had not yet arrived. After half an hour, Tamanna woke up.
Ridhimaa rushed to her side. She raised Tamanna's head a little by placing her hand beneath it and helped her to a glass of water. Tamanna was surprised to see Ridhimaa.
Tamanna: Hye Ridz!
Ridhimaa: Hye... ab kaisi ho? Zyada pain to nahi ho raha na?
Tamanna: Nahi... lekin raat me zyada ho raha tha. Ammy kahan hai?
Ridhimaa: Pata nahi... mujhe to... wo tumhare liye ek note chodkar gaya hai. Ye lo...
She gave the note to her.
Tamanna: Tum padh do na...
Ridhimaa read the note aloud. When she reached the last part where Armaan had given his love, her heart ached. Tamanna looked around and saw Armaan's laptop.
Tamanna: Ye to Ammy ka laptop hai. Iska matlab Ammy ne koi gaana likha hai. Jab wo aayega to use kahenge sunaane ke liye. Theek hai?
Ridhimaa: Wo main...
Tamanna: Ridz... tum baaki sab se thodi alag ho na?
Ridhimaa: Kya matlab?
Tamanna: Matlab baaki sab jis tarah se Ammy ke gusse ke bawjood usse khul kar baat karte hain... lekin tum ab bhi ussey reserved rehti ho. Tumhe us par yakeen nahi hua kya?
Ridhimaa: Mujhe yakeen hai us par lekin wo khud hi mujhse baat nahi karna chahta to main kaise...
Tamanna: Tum uske gusse se kyun darrti ho? Tum uske pass rahogi, usse baat karti rahogi to kabhi na kabhi uska gussa khatm ho jayega.
Ridhimaa: Nahi... meri galti ki wajah se...
Tamanna: Galtiyan sabse hoti hain Ridhimaa. Ammy se bhi kabhi na kabhi galti hui hi hogi. Tum batao... kabhi usne tumhe bina baat ke nahi daanta?
Ridhimaa: Daanta hai... lekin wo humesha mana leta hai... aur mujhe kisiko manana nahi aata.
Ridhimaa: Wo main rone lagti hoon to Armaan...
Tamanna: Haan uski yahi problem hai...
Ridhimaa: Wo hum sab se nafrat karta hai...
Tamanna: Nahi Ridz, wo to sabse bahut pyar karta hai, wo nafrat kar hi nahi sakta. Pata hai, usne aaj tak sirf ek hi shakhs se nafrat ki hai...
Ridhimaa: Apne papa se... hai na?
Tamanna: Haan... tumhe pata hai? Achha yahan par Ammy ka sabse achha friend kaun tha?
Ridhimaa: Ye tumhe Armaan hi zyada achhe se bata payega. Tum usse pooch lena...
Just then the door opened and Armaan entered, looking fresh, but still decked in a leather jacket, black T-shirt, trousers and his glasses.
Ridhimaa: (standing up) Ab mujhe chalna chahiye...
Tamanna: Ridz thodi der ruk jao na... abhi to tumhara duty time shuru nahi hua... abhi aadha ghanta baaki hai...
Ridhimaa: Wo mujhe ek kaam hai....
Tamanna: Ridz... please... main tumhari patient hoon na tumhe meri baat sunni padegi... please...
Ridhimaa looked at Tamanna's pleading face and smiled vaguely.
Armaan: Tammy... mera note mila?
Tamanna: Haan... Ammy pata hai, Ridhimaa ne mujhe us ladki ka naam bataya hai jisse tum pyar karte the...
Armaan looked at Ridhimaa shocked. Ridhimaa's face too bore the same shock.
Ridhimaa: (shocked out of her senses) Maine? Maine to nahi... maine kab bataya?
Tamanna: Ridz! Tum thodi der chup nahi reh sakti thi? Ab mujhe kaise pata chalega?
Armaan: (to Tamanna, with fake anger) Tumhara dimaag bahut chalne laga hai na, mujhse bhi jhooth bologi tum?
Tamanna: To tum hi mujhe bata do na ki wo kaun thi?
PART 171:Armaan: Tammy please...
Ridhimaa again stood up.
Tamanna: Ridz ruko... tum Armaan ka naya gaana nahi sunogi?
Armaan: Tumhe kaise pata chala ki maine gaana likha hai?
Tamanna: Tumhara laptop table par rakha hua hai. Aur mujhe ye bhi pata hai ki kal raat bhar baith kar tum gaana hi likhte rahe hoge. Likha liya?
Armaan: Haan likh liya.
Tamanna: To sunao...
Armaan: Abhi nahi... abhi main canteen ja raha hoon, coffee peene... tum kuch khaogi?
Armaan stood up.
Ridhimaa: Lekin canteen to aaj band hai.
Armaan rounded on Ridhimaa, she cowered.
Ridhimaa: Haan... main dekh ke aa rahi hoon...
Tamanna: Ammy... tum is tarah se karte ho, tabhi Ridz tumse darrti hai...
Ridhimaa fled from there.
Tamanna: Tumhe us par gussa karne ki kya zaroorat thi? Bechaari...
Armaan: Tumhe wo bechaari lagti hai? Agar tumhe pata hota ki usne mere saath...
Tamanna: Usne tumhare saath jo bhi kiya... wo iske liye sharminda hai. Baaki sabne bhi to tumhare saath bura kiya lekin wo abhi bhi tumse baat karne ki koshish karte hain. Lekin Ridhimaa ko lagta hai ki sab kuch usiki galti hai. Wo kehti hai ki tum usse nafrat karte ho. Maine use samjhaane ki koshish bhi ki lekin bahut ziddi hai... bilkul tumhari tarah...
Armaan: Meri tarah?
Tamanna: Haan tumhari tarah...
Armaan: Maine kaun si zidd ki?
Tamanna: Ye tumhari zidd nahi to aur kya hai ki tum apne doston ko maaf nahi kar rahe, mujhe kuch bhi nahi bata rahe? You're very obstinate.
Armaan: Tamanna... main unse pyar nahi karta...
Tamanna: Nahi Armaan... tum jhooth bol rahe ho, mujhse bhi aur khud se bhi. Pata hai, muhabbat ek phool ki tarah hoti hai, jiski khushboo kam to ho sakti hai lekin kabhi khatm nahi hoti.
Armaan did not want to listen. He stood up and left.
There was no signal in Armaan's mobile. He reached the Nurse Station.
Armaan: Sister Lovely, main ek phone kar sakta hoon?
Lovely: Haan ji kariye na ji. Waise Dr.Armaan ji... aap waapas aa gaye, mujhe bada achha laga. Aapke jaane ke bad ye Sanjeevani bahut khaali khaali sa ho gaya tha...
Armaan: Main waapas nahi aaya hoon Sister Lovely.
Lovely: Oh! Aap phone kar lijiye... mujhe ek kaam hai...
She left. Armaan dialled a number. But nobody picked the phone on the other side. Kirti and the interns too reached the Nurse Station for the briefing session. They saw Armaan but Armaan did not see them.
Kirti: Good morning interns.
Armaan(springing to attention) and the other interns: Good morning mam.
They all looked at Armaan, who had forgotten that he no longer worked in Sanjeevani. Kirti smiled. Armaan turned back to the phone, embarrassed, and started dialling again.
Kirti: Dr.Rahul, Dr.Muskaan General Ward. Dr.Atul OPD. Dr.Anjali aaj aap Dr.Shubhankar ko surgery me assist karengi. Dr.Ridhimaa Path Lab. Aur Miss Tamanna ke case ki reports aap Nurse Station par de dijiye.
Ridhimaa: Mam mujhe unki medication change karni thi... aur kuch tests bhi karwaane the.
Ridhimaa: Wo aaj subah keh rahi thi ki raat me unhe zyada pain hua tha.. isiliye... bus check karne ke liye.
Kirt: OK. Fir unki reports mujhe zaroor dikha dijiyega.
Ridhimaa: Yes mam.
Armaan: Hello... this is Armaan Mallik speaking. Yes... mujhe isi baare me kuch baat karni hai... dekhiye main kuch din nahi aa paunga... ye recording postpone nahi ho sakti?... Aap meri baat samajhne ki koshish kijiye. Meri ek friend bimaar hai... bus do teen hafton ki to baat hai... maine kaha na ki main unhe chodkar nahi aa sakta... ek din ke liye bhi nahi... aap samajh hi nahi rahe... agar aap aisa karenge to mujhe ye contract cancel karna padega... yes I'm serious... mera uske pass rehna aapke contract se zyada zaroori hai. Main aaj hi aapko papers fax kar deta hoon... aap kisi aur singer ko le lijiye... nahi mujhe paise nahi chahiye... it's over. Mujhe aapke saath kaam nahi karna.
Armaan put the receiver down. The company wasn't ready to understand. Armaan turned around and bumped into Ridhimaa who was there to submit the reports.
Armaan,Ridhimaa: (together) Sorry...
Armaan saw Tamanna's name on the reports. Ridhimaa kept them on the counter.
Armaan: Dr.Gupta... ye reports...
Ridhimaa: Tamanna ki hain.
Armaan: May I?
Ridhimaa gave the reports to him. Armaan examined them.
Just then Armaan's mobile started vibrating. He put the mobile to his ears while busy in the reports. The phone was from the company.
Armaan: Hello... Arrey aapko baat ek baar me samajh me nahi aati? Maine kaha ki mujhe aapke saath koi album nahi karni to bus nahi karni. Nahi mujhe double payment nahi chahiye... aap wo paise apne pass rakhiye aur us singer ko hire kijye jise apno se zyada aapke is album ki parwaah ho. Good bye aur agar aapne mujhe fir se phone karne ki koshish ki to main police me report kar dunga. Understood?
Armaan cut the phone and then switched off his mobile. He closed the file of Tamanna's reports.
Armaan: Tamanna ka CT scan kab hai?
Ridhimaa: Aaj barah baje.
Armaan put the file back on the counter and went away. The others looked at each other. Armaan entered the room.
Armaan: Tammy... tumhe raat me zyada pain hua tha?
Tamanna: Nahi... nahi to...
Armaan: Jhooth mat bolo. Main abhi tumhari reports dekh ke aa raha hoon. Aaj barah baje tumhara CT scan hoga.
Tamanna: Oh no!
Armaan: Aur tumhari medications bhi change hongi.
Tamanna: Medicine? Ammy... mujhe dawaai nahi khaani.
Armaan: Shut up! Tum koi chhoti si bachhi ho jo dawaai khaane se darrti ho? Ab koi naatak nahi chalega...
Tamanna: Ammy tum mujhe daant kyun rahe ho?
Armaan: Daantu nahi to aur kya karun? Ek to Mumbai aane ke liye force kiya, fir ye chot... agar tumhe kuch ho gaya to?
Tamanna: Mujhe kuch nahi hoga, tum jo ho mer pass. Hai na?
Armaan: Bus zyada makkhan maarne ki zaroorat nahi hai. Tumhe dawaai khaani padegi.
Till then, Ridhimaa had arrived there with the medicines.
Tamanna: Ammy please... mujhe dawaai nahi khaani... Ridz please...
Armaan: (thundering) Tum aakhir chaahti kya ho?
Tamanna gazed at Armaan horror-struck.
Armaan: Tum theek nahi hona chahti? Tumhe pata hai ki tumhe is haalat me dekhkar mere dil par kya beet rahi hai? Mujhe kitna dukh hota hai ki main tumhara khyal nahi rakh paaya? Tum kyun mujhe aur dard dena chahti ho? Agar aisa hai to bolo... main tumhe dawaai khaane ke liye force nahi karunga. Agar tumhe mujhe dard me dekhkar khushi hoti hai to theek hai... Ridhimaa...
He was addressing Ridhimaa directly by her name for the first time since he had returned.
Armaan: Ye medicines le jao aur jaakar fenk do.
Tamanna: (tears coming out of her eyes) Ammy!
PART 172: Armaan turned away and went and sat on the sofa with his head in his hands. He was feeling bad about losing his temper with Tamanna. Tamanna took the medicines from Ridhimaa and ate them with a glass of water.
Tamanna: (sobbing) Ammy! I am sorry...
Armaan looked up. There were tears in Tamanna's eyes. He rushed up to her and hugged her.
Armaan: I am sorry Tammy... mujhe tumse is tarah se baat nahi karni chahiye thi... I am very sorry...
Tamanna hugged him back. Ridhimaa was watching all this in a state of shock. Armaan loved Tamanna so much.
He wiped off Tamanna's tears and kissed her forehead.
Armaan: I am very sorry... tumhari aankhon me meri wajah se aansun aaye...
Tamanna: Waise ek baat tumhare gusse ne bahut achhi ki... dekho maine dawaai kha li...
She smiled, Armaan was surprised.
Armaan: Tumne sach me dawaai kha li?
Tamanna: Ridhimaa se pooch lo...
Armaan: Nahi, mujhe kisi se apni Tammy ke baare me kuch bhi poochne ki zaroorat nahi hai. Mujhe bas gussa aa gaya tha... wo bhi kisi aur baat ki wajah se.
Tamanna: Kyun, kya hua tha?
Armaan: Wo music album waali company hai na, unse contract khatm kar diya maine.
Tamanna: Kyun? Wo to bahut achhi opportunity thi tumhare liye.
Armaan: Wo chaahte the ki main kal hi wahaan jaun... aur main tumhe is haal me chodkar kaise jaata.
Tamanna: Oh Ammy! Tume ye sab mere liye kiya?
Armaan: Nahi... humaare liye... itne din jo main tumse door raha... ab main tumhe aur akela nahi chod sakta...
Tamanna: Tum bahut achhe ho... Dekho aaj maine tumhare kehne par dawaai kha li... tum bhi meri ek baat maanoge?
Armaan: Of course... tum bol ke dekho...
Armaan: (noting the seriousness in her voice) Nahi...
Tamanna: Armaan suno to...
Armaan: Nahi... jab tum mujhe Armaan keh kar bulaati ho to mujhe pata chal jaata hai ki tum koi aisi baat karne ja rahi ho jo mujhe nahi pasand.
Tamanna: Armaan... main chahti hoon ki tum... ki tum Sanjeevani waapas join kar lo...
Armaan: It's impossible Tamanna and you know that.
Tamanna: Par Armaan...
Armaan: Nahi mujhe kuch nahi sunna...
Tamanna: Ridhimaa tum bhi kaho na Armaan se...
Ridhimaa: Main? Main kya bolun?
Armaan: Tammy please... main tumhari baat maankar Mumbai aaya tha... tum mujhe waapas takleefein kyun dena chahti ho? Ab bas, is topic par koi baat nahi hogi... jaise hi tum theek ho jaogi, hum log waapas chale jayenge.
Armaan: Tamanna, agar tum mujhse pyar karti ho to please is topic ko yahin khatm kar do.
Tamanna ended the topic.
Tamanna: Achha chodo, wo apna naya gaana sunao...
Armaan: Ye waala zyada achha nahi hai...
He was aware of Ridhimaa's presence. Ridhimaa sensed that.
Ridhimaa: Main jaati hoon, mujhe ek kaam hai...
Tamanna: Nahi Ridz ruko. Ammy gaana sunao.
Armaan could not refuse Tamanna.
Duniya ka kuch bura bhi tamaasha nahi raha,
Dil chaahta tha jis tarah waisa nahi raha.
Tumse mile bhi hum to judaai ke mod par,
Kashti hui naseeb to dariya nahi raha.
Kaise milaayein aankh kisi aaine se hum,
Haaye humare paas to chehra nahi raha.
Aankhein dekh dekh ke khwaab aa gayi hain tang,
Dil me bhi wo shauk, wo armaan nahi raha.
Kehte the ek pal na jiyenge tere bagair,
Hum dono reh gaye wo waada nahi raha.
Kaati hain is tarah se maine roz raatein,
Main saans le raha tha par zinda nahi raha. Ridhimaa wanted to hug Armaan, to cry out her heart but anyhow, she managed to stay still. A tear seeped down from Armaan's closed eyelids and got lost in his jacket.
Tamanna: Ammy, tum... tum ro rahe ho?
Armaan: Nahi to...
Ridhimaa looked at Armaan. His face was dry but his eyes looked as if there was an ocean of unshed tears.
Tamanna: Ammy, wo ladki kaun hai jisse...
Armaan: Isiliye main tumhe gaane nahi sunaata. Tum turant shuru ho jaati ho.
Tamanna: Main to bas us ladki ka naam jaanna chahti hoon. Pata hai, maine kahin padha tha ki muhabbat karne waalon ke dil bahut naazuk hote hain. Unke dil todna unka katl karne ke baraabar hai, aur is gunaah ko khuda bhi kabhi maaf nahi karta. Dekhna us ladki ko bhi...
Armaan: (changing the subject) Tumhe muhabbat aur pyar ke baare me itni knowledge kaise ho gayi? Tum bhi kisi se pyar karti ho kya?
Tamanna: Tumhe nahi pata?
Armaan: Nahi... kaun hai wo? Tum kissey pyar karti ho?
Tamanna: Tumse aur kissey?
Ridhimaa was stricken.
Armaan: Oh! Tum bhi na Tammy...
Tamanna: Dekho maine to bata diya main kissey pyar karti hoon, tum bhi batao ki tum kissey pyar karte ho.
Armaan: Main bhi tumse bahut pyar karta hoon.
Ridhimaa felt as if someone had clutched her heart and wrung it tightly.
Tamanna: (jokingly) Really? Mujhe nahi pata tha...
Armaan: Chalo ab to pata chal gaya na...
Tamanna: Ridz. Tumne kabhi kisi se pyar kiya hai?
Tamanna: Haan tumne. Tumhe dekhkar mujhe lagta hai jaise koi hai, jiske liye tumhara dil dhadakta hoga... koi hai jiska tumhe intzaar hoga. Kaun hai wo tumhara Mr.Right?
Ridhimaa stood up.
Ridhimaa: Baarah bajne waale hain. Tumhare CT scan ka time ho gaya hai. Main wardboy ko bhejti hoon.
Ridhimaa left the room as fast as possible. Tamanna was taken to the lab where her CT Scan was done. Then she was shifted back to the room. Ridhimaa took Tamanna's reports to show them to Dr.Kirti but Armaan met her in the way.
Armaan: Wo reports...
Armaan was very anxious. He nearly snatched the file from Ridhimaa's hand.
Ridhimaa: Armaan... wo...
But Armaan was not listening. He had scanned the reports. His eyes were wide in horror.
Armaan: Brain... Brain Cancer!
PART 173: Armaan dropped himself on a nearby bench. Tears had unknowingly came in his and were flowing down his cheeks.
Armaan: Br... Brain Cancer... last stage... Tamanna... Tamanna...
The last call was really heart wrenching. Ridhimaa had seen Armaan lose his poise very less. But now, he looked really heart broken. He was weeping his heart out. There was no stop to his cries. People had gathered around. Shubhankar too came out from a nearby ward. Ridhimaa sat down on the ground before Armaan.
Ridhimaa: (keeping her hand on his knees) Armaan...
Armaan looked up and saw tears pouring down from Ridhimaa's eyes too. She could not stop herself from crying, seeing Armaan's condition.
Armaan: Ridhimaa... Tammy...
Ridhimaa: Armaan ye Tamanna ki reports nahi hain. Dekho...
Ridhimaa closed the file in Armaan's hand and pointed to the name on the cover. It was someone else's. Not Tamanna's.
Armaan: To fir Tammy...
Ridhimaa: Wo bilkul theek hai, uski reports normal hain.
She handed him Tamanna's reports which she was holding in her other hand. Armaan quickly examined them. A huge relief spread on his face. As if he had found something he had long lost. Armaan looked down at Ridhimaa who was watching him anxiously, her own face glazed with ters.
Armaan: Tamanna... bilkul theek hai?
Ridhimaa: Haan Armaan...
Ridhimaa stood up and turned around to hide her own tears. Armaan too stood up. He wanted to wipe off Ridhimaa's tears. Armaan raised his hand to place it on Ridhimaa's shoulder but stopped himself at the very last moment.
Armaan: Ridhimaa... Dr.Gupta...
Ridhimaa turned around, her face clear of the tears.
Armaan: Tammy ko uski reports...
Ridhimaa: Haan chalo...
They both march off towards Tamanna's room. Armaan bolted inside the room and hugged Tamanna, tears again blinking in his eyes.
Tamanna: Ammy... kya hua? Tum aise kyun...
She was disturbed with Armaan's tears.
Armaan: Tumhari reports...
Armaan shuddered on thinking what he had thought just a minute before.
Tamanna: Meri reports?
She looked at Ridhimaa who was trying hard to control her own tears but was not successful in doing so.
Tamanna: Ridz... meri reports aa gayi?
Ridhimaa handed her the reports. Armaan prised himself away from Tamanna. Tamanna scanned the reports.
Tamanna: Ye reports to normal hain.
Then she looked at Armaan, who after wiping his tears was putting his glasses back on.
Tamanna: Ammy... kya hua? Tum aise kyun ro rahe the?
Armaan: Wo maine kisi aur ki reports ko tumhari reports samajh liya tha...
Tamanna: Oh! Kya bimaari thi use?
Armaan: Brain cancer.
Tamanna: Oh Ammy! Lekin fir Ridz ko to meri reports ke baare me pata tha na? Fir wo kyun ro rahi hai?
Armaan looked at Ridhimaa whose face was still glazed with tears.
Tamanna: Ridz... idhar aao.
Ridhimaa came towards her. Tamanna held her hand and made her sit down.
Tamanna: Kya hua Ridz? Tum kyun ro rahi thi?
Ridhimaa: Wo bas aankh me kuch chala gaya tha.
Tamanna: Apne aansuon ko paani keh kar unhe sasta mat karo.
Ridhimaa: Maine tumhari medication change kar di hai. I hope ye tumhe suit karegi.
Tamanna: I hope so too. Mera kitna mann kar raha hai ki main yahan se uthkar shopping ke liye jaun. Ye pehli baar hai jab main kisi nayi jagah aayi hoon aur shopping par nahi gayi. Warna to apni city me bhi main har weekend par shopping par jaati hoon.
Ridhimaa: Har weekend par?
Tamanna: Haan, tum nahi jaati?
Tamanna: Tum baaki sab se bahut alag ho. Ammy... tumhe jaana nahi hai?
Tamanna: Tum bhool gaye? Tum keh rahe the ki tumhe car kharidni hai, remember?
Armaan: Oh haan! Ye doosri waali car to bahut dino se servicing na hone ki wajah se band padi hai.
Tamanna: To fir tum yahan kisse aaye?
Armaan: Bike se.
Tamanna: Ammy... tumhare pass kaun si bike hai?
Tamanna: Wahi jo Dhoom 2 me thi? Hai na?
Tamanna: Wow! Ammy mujhe bhi bike chalaani seekhni hai. Tum sikhaoge na mujhe?
Armaan: Tum bike chalaogi?
Tamanna: Haan, main bike nahi chala sakti kya?
Armaan: Is waqt to nahi...
Tamanna: Par baad me to chala sakti hoon na...
Armaan: Achha baba theek hai.
Tamanna: Yaad hai, maine car chalaani sirf ek hafte me seekh li thi.
Armaan: Sirf ek hafta?
Tamanna: Aur kya, jaldi seekh li na. Ridz, tum bhi to car chalaati ho. Tumne kitne din me car chalaani seekhi?
Ridhimaa: Maine... ek... ek din me...
Tamanna: What? Ek din me. Kaise? Kisne sikhayi?
Ridhimaa glanced uneasily at Armaan. Tamanna understood.
Tamanna: Ammy ne? Mujhe bhi usine sikhayi thi. Lekin mujhe to poora ek hafta lag gaya tha aur tumne ek hi din me seekh li. Wow!
Tamanna: Achha Ammy, tum kaun si car loge?
Armaan: I think, mere liye pehle waali hi theek rahegi. Meri puraani waali ke jaise.
Tamanna: Haan... lekin kaun sa colour? Meri waali ka to grey hai. Pata hai grey car trust show karti hai.
Armaan: Achha? Aur black?
Tamanna: Black wealth show karti hai.
Ridhimaa: Tumhe kaise pata?
Tamanna: Maine kahin padha tha. Ridhimaa tumhara favourite colour kaun sa hai?
Tamanna: Ammy tum fir se red car kharidoge na?
Tamanna: Pata hai red colour kya show karta hai?
Armaan,Ridhimaa: (together) Love?
Tamanna: Wo to in general, lekin red car symbolises determination.
Tamanna: Haan aur Ridz, tumhari car to purple colour ki hai na.
Tamanna: Tumne to ye car nahi kharidi hogi.
Ridhimaa: (shocked) Tumhe kaise... I mean kyun?
Tamanna: Kyunki... purple coloured car symbolise karti hai confidence aur... aur... love.
Ridhimaa was really surprised. Armaan had been so thoughtful in gifting her the car.
PART 174:Tamanna: Ridz, tumne kabhi kisi se pyar kiya hai?
Ridhimaa: Apni family se.
Tamanna: Don't try to fool me. You know what I mean. Mera matlab ishq, muhabbat...
Ridhimaa kept mum. Armaan also was trying not to look too interested in the conversation.
Tamanna: Ridz... kahan kho gayi?
Tamanna: Ridz, tumhe koi poem aati hai, love ke baare me? Please wo waali sunao na jo aaj tum subah suna rahi thi.
Ridhimaa: Tum jagi hui thi?
Tamanna: Haan... sunao na...
But Ridhimaa was aware of Armaan's presence.
Tamanna: Ammy... tum apne kaan band kar lo... Ridz... sunao na...
Armaan got up and moved out of the room.
Aksar sochti hoon main
Agar tum saath hote to
Ye mera haal na hota
Tum hote tumhari sachhi
Tum aur main
Milkar sapne bunte
Aur unhe sach
Karne ke liye
Arpan kar dete
Thodi takraar hoti
Thoda sa pyar
Sapno ke us gharaunde me
Nanha sa phool khilta
Magar afsos ye ki tum
Ab mere nahi ho
Mere saath nahi ho. Armaan who was coming back to take the keys of his bike from the table had listened the whole poem.
Tamanna: Ridz... wo tumhare pass nahi hai. Kya uski death...
Ridhimaa: (revolted) Tamanna!
Armaan too was surprised at Ridhimaa's tone.
Tamanna: Kya hua?
She started crying. The scene of the fake Armaan's death revolved in her mind. She did not want this to ever happen again.
Ridhimaa: Use mere marne tak jeena hoga... wo mujhse pehle nahi ja sakta...
Tamanna: Ridhimaa... maine to aise hi...
Ridhimaa: Please Tamanna aisi baat fir kabhi mat kehna... tumhe nahi pata...
Tamanna: Sorry Ridz.
Ridhimaa controlled herself and wiped her tears. Armaan was shocked to see Ridhimaa's reaction as he thought she might have forgotten her love for him.
Tamanna: To wo hai kahan? Tumhare saath kyun nahi?
Ridhimaa: Ye to bas ek poem thi... aisi koi baat nahi hai jo tum soch rahi ho...
Tamanna: Achha abhi to tum uske baare me keh rahi thi ki wo tumse pehle nahi ja sakta. Wo hai kaun?
Ridhimaa: Koi... koi nahi...
Armaan: Tammy main chaabhi lena bhool gaya tha... tum khana kha lena shayad mujhe der ho jayye. Bye.
Armaan bent to kiss Tamanna's forehead and went away without even glancing at Ridhimaa.
Ridhimaa: Tumhe bhookh lagi hai?
Tamanna: Abhi nahi lekin do ghante baad zaroor lagegi. Tum tab mere liye canteen se noodles le aaogi?
Ridhimaa: Canteen se? Lekin canteen to aaj band hai. Maine subah bataya tha na...
Ridhimaa: Main nani ko bolti hoon. Wo ghar ka khana le aayengi.
Tamanna: Nahi bekaar me unko pareshaan karogi.
Ridhimaa: Isme pareshaani ki kya baat hai. Infact unko to bahut khushi hogi tumse milke... aur isi bahane mujhe, Di aur papa ko bhi ghar ka khana mil jaayega.
Tamanna: Thanks Ridz...
Ridhimaa: Tamanna tum mujhe apna friend samajhti ho?
Ridhimaa: To fir aagey se yaad rakhna... friendship me no sorry, no thank you. OK?
Tamanna: OK friend.
She smiled. Ridhimaa too smiled. She liked Tamanna very much even though she knew about the closeness between Tamanna and Armaan.
In the locker room. The interns were gathered together.
Rahul: Arrey canteen ko bhi aaj hi band hona tha... jab mujhe itni tez bhookh lagi hai.
Muskaan: Haan... mere pet me to chuhe kood rahe hain.
Atul: Anjali tumhe bhi bhookh lagi hai?
Anjali: Obviously Atul! Main bhi insaan hoon... you are really too much.
Ridhimaa: Don't worry Di. Maine khaana arrange kar diya hai.
Nani: (entering the locker room) Aise.
She was caryying a bag.
Anjali: Nani... aap?
Atul went and touched Nani's feet.
Nani: Jeete raho... Ridhimaa ne mujhe phone karke bataya tha ki tum sabko kitni bhookh lag rahi hai. Main tum sabke liye ghar se khaana lekar aayi hoon.
Rahul: Wow! Nani, you're the best.
Muskaan: Khaana... kahan?
Nani took out two large tiffin cases and handed it to them.
Anjali: Thanks nani. Ye hum sab ke liye bahut hai. Ridzi... chalo khaate hain.
Ridhimaa: Main pehle Tamanna ko de aaun... usne bhi subah se kuch nahi khaaya.
Anjali: Haan... waise bhi is haalat me bhookha rehna uske liye theek nahi. Jao Ridz...
Ridhimaa went away with nani. Meanwhile, in Tamanna's room, Armaan had returned, looking windswept.
Tamanna: Hye Ammy... tumhari nayi car ke liye congrats.
Armaan: Thanks... tumne khaana khaaya?
Tamanna: Nahi... canteen to band thi... Ridhimaa ne subah tumhe bataya bhi tha.
Armaan: Oh no! Main to bilkul hi bhool gaya tha...
Tamanna: (ignoring him) Ammy mujhe Ridz bahut achhi lagti hai. Jab se tumne Sanjeevani se resign kiya hai, saare interns par workload kitna badh gaya hai. Fir bhi Ridz apne busy schedule ke bawjood sirf mere liye yahan aakar baithti hai. Uski wajah se pata hai use raat me der tak kaam karna padta hai. Aur ye baat bhi mujhe Dr.Kirti se pata chali hai. Ridz to kuch bhi nahi kehti. Jab mujhe dard hota hai to wo aise mere sir par haath rakhti hai jaise mere saare dard le legi. Aaj bhi wo mere liye apne ghar se khaana mangwa rahi hai. Wo bahut achhi hai...
Armaan: (angrily) Huh! Jisey tum itna achha keh rahi ho... usne tumhare Ammy ke saath kitna bura kiya hai, pata hai? Tumhe chahe wo achhi lage, lekin mere dil me kabhi uske liye jagah nahi ban paayegi. Wo bas isiliye tumhare pass aati hai kyunki use lagta hai ki uske aisa karne se main use maaf kar dunga. Lekin aisa kabhi nahi hoga. Main sabke asli chehre jaanta hoon... koi bhi pyar, vishwaas ke kaabil nahi... koi bhi. Main usse nafrat karta hoon.
There came a sniff from the door. They both look towards it but could only see Ridhimaa's silhoutte vanishing from the sight as she ran away crying. Nani was left there alone carrying a large tiffin case in her hands.
PART 175: Armaan stood up. He knew he had spoken more than he had intended to, actually more than what he really thought. Armaan had not seen Ridhimaa's face but he knew that at the moment, it would certainly be covered with tears. Nani entered inside. Armaan was not angry with nani. She had not rebuked him. Nani kept the tiffin on the table and came towards Armaan.
Nani: Kya hua? Mujhse bhi nafrat ho gayi hai tumhe? Kya main bhi tumhare pyar, tumhare vishwaas ke kaabil nahi?
Armaan: (hugging nani deeply and speaking in a voice full of emotions) Nahi nani... main aapse kaise nafrat kar sakta hoon?
Tears were running down Nani's cheeks. She had missed Armaan. He was just as dear to her as Anjali and Ridhimaa.
Nani: Mere bachhe... kahan chale gaye the tum apni nani ko chodkar? Meri bilkul bhi yaad nahi aayi?
Armaan: Sorry nani.
Nani: Sorry to mujhe bolna chahiye... tere saath itna kuch ho gaya aur main kuch nahi kar paayi. Agar tu mere pass aata to main sab kuch theek kar deti... lekin tu to chala gaya tha...
Nani and Armaan separated. Nani then came towards Tamanna, who was gazing at the reunion.
Nani: Tamanna... main Ridhimaa aur Anjali ki nani hoon. Waise mera Armaan ke saath koi rishta to nahi lekin maine humesha use Ridhimaa ke jitna hi pyar kiya hai...
Tamanna: Hye nani. Main bhi aapko nani bula sakti hoon na?
Nani: Kyun nahi? Mujhe Ridhimaa ne bataya tha ki usne ek bahut pyari si dost banayi hai... to mera bhi mann kiya ki tumse mil loon aur in sahab zaade ki khabar le loon.
She pulled Armaan's ear, he winced.
She left his ear.
Nani: Ridhimaa bol rahi thi ki tumhe bhookh lagi hai, main tumhare liye khaana laayi hoon... aur Armaan ke liye bhi.
Nabi opened the tiffin. The delicious smell of aloo paranthas filled Armaan's nostrils.
Armaan: Aloo ke parathe?
Nani: Haan... tumhe bahut achhe lagte hain na...
She took out the food in two plates, handed one to Armaan and started feeding Tamanna with her own hands.
Tamanna: Wow nani! Bahut tasty hain. Aapne banaye hain?
Nani: Nahi, meri bahu ne. Aur waise bhi tumne abhi asli taste jaana kahan hai? Agar uske banaye gaye parathe taste karogi to fir kabhi bhool hi nahi paogi.
Nani: Ridhimaa ko aur kise. Wo to itne achhe parathe banati hai... hai na Armaan... tumhe bhi to bahut pasand hain uske haath ke banaye hue parathe.
Nani looked at Armaan. She had quite forgotten what Armaan had said a few minutes before.
Nani: Achha... ab main chalti hoon... baaki sab se mil loon. Shashank to kahin bahar gaya hai.
Nani goes out.
Ridhimaa was nowhere to be found. Nani went into the locker room but only other interns were there, relishing the food.
Nani: Ridhimaa kahan hai?
Anjali: Wo to aapke saath gayi thi na?
Nani: Haan wo...
Atul: Shayad duty kar rahi hogi.
Nani: Main jaakar dekhti hoon.
Nani went out. She met Kirti on the way.
Kirti: Namaste aunty.
Nani: Namaste beta. Kirti... aaj Ridhimaa ki duty kahan hai?
Kirti: Path Lab me. Lekin unki wo duty to khatam ho gayi. Dr.Ridhimaa to is samay baaki sab interns ke saath hongi.
Nani: Nahi... mujhe to wo kahin nahi mil rahi...
Nani sped away from there. She checked outside, Ridhimaa's car was still there. Then where had she gone? Nani again entered the locker room.
Nani: Anjali beta... Ridhimaa pata nahi kahan hai? Usne to khaana bhi nahi khaaya, bechaari suabh se bhookhi hai...
Anjali: Wo abhi tak nahi mili? Shaayad Tamanna ke pass hogi.
Nani: Main jaakar dekhti hoon... agar wo yahan aaye to use rok kar rakhna...
Rahul: Ji nani.
Nani went away.
Muskaan: Ye Ridhimaa gayi kahan?
Atul: Pata nahi.
Anjali: Ridz is tarah bina bataaye to kahin nahi jaati.
Rahul: Kahin wo ghar to nahi chali gayi.
Anjali: Chalo chalkar check karte hain.
They all go out. But as nani, they found Ridhimaa's car standing in the parking.
Anjali: Ridz ki car to yahin hai.
Atul: Shayad wo nani ko mil gayi ho.
Rahul: Haan Tamanna ke pass hi hogi.
Muskaan: Wo uski friend hai...
Anjali: Nani wahin gayi hain. Hum log bhi dekhne chalte hain.
They all start moving toward Tamanna's room. Meanwhile, Kirti had informed Shubhankar about Ridhimaa's disappearance.
Shubhankar: Don't worry Kirti. Dr.Ridhimaa Miss Tamanna ke pass hongi.
Kirti: Haan ho sakta hai. Chal ke dekhte hain.
In Tamanna's room, Armaan and Tamanna were talking.
Tamanna: Ammy... nani bahut achhi hain na?
Tamanna: Mujhse itne pyar se baatein kar rahi thi jaise mujhe saalon se jaanti ho.
Tamanna: Aur shayad wo tumse bhi bahut pyar karti hain.
Tamanna: Yahan par sabhi tumse bahut pyar karte hain...
Tamanna: Ammy... tum sach kyun nahi dekhna chahte?
Just then Nani came into the room.
Nani: Ridhimaa... Ridhimaa yahan aayi thi mere jaane ke baad?
Tamanna: Nahi to...
Anjali,Atul,Rahul,Muskaan,Shubhankar and Kirti also entered.
Anjali: Ridzi to yahan bhi nahi hai.
Shubhankar: Oh no!
Atul: Fir Ridz chali kahan gayi?
Tamanna: Hua kya hai? Kahan gayi hai Ridhimaa?
Rahul: Wahi to nahi pata. Wo yahan tumhe khaana dene aur nani se milaane ke liye aayi thi.
Tamanna: Lekin wo to baahar se hi chali gayi thi...
Muskaan: Kya? Kahan?
Tamanna: Pata nahi...
Anjali: Nani hum log baahar dekh kar aa rahe hain. Uski car to wahin hai... aur uska pager bhi mere pass hai...
Nani: Ye Ridhimaa gayi kahan? Tum logon ne sab jagah dekha?
Kirti: Main General Ward, Path Lab, OPD, ICU sab jagah dekh kar aa rahi hoon. Dr.Ridhimaa kahin nahi hain.
Tamanna: To fir wo hai kahan? Ammy... tumhari wajah se hi...
Armaan: (feeling guilty) Mujhe pata hai wo kahan hogi. I'll just go and check.
Tamanna: Ammy ko kaise pata hoga?
Rahul: Kyunki Armaan aur Ridhimaa... pehle bahut achhe friends the. I am sure, he will find her.
Armaan knew where Ridhimaa would be. Armaan made his way steadily towards the Fire Escape. He opened the door slowly, without making any sound. Ridhimaa's cries could be heard from there only. Armaan entered. Ridhimaa was sitting on the very last step with her head on her knees, crying. Armaan came right upto where she was sitting. Ridhimaa didn't look up.
PART 176: Ridhimaa thought she was imagining things. Armaan was calling her. How could that be, when he hated her so much.
Armaan: (shaking Ridhimaa) Ridhimaa...
Ridhimaa jumped. She looked up and though she was blinded by her own tears, there was no mistaking the person standing before her. It was definitely Armaan, whose silhoutte she could recognise even with her eyes closed. He was there before her. Armaan was fighting with his own words. He didn't know what to say.
Armaan: Wo main... main... I am sorry jo maine kaha. Mujhe... ye sab... tumhe sab log dhoondh rahe hain.
Ridhimaa was gazing avidly at him. This was disturbing Armaan. He tried to make his tone formal but couldn't. He could not endure seeing Ridhimaa in tears, that too because of him. Whatever he had told Tamanna, he had never been able to hate Ridhimaa. It as just a lie which Armaan spoke to himself every day to forget Ridhimaa. She turned her face away from him. She was hiccoughing with tears.
Ridhimaa stood up, facing the wall.
Ridhimaa: (in a voice muffled with tears) Mujhe kuch nahi chahiye Armaan... na tumhari dosti, na tumhari maafi. Main jaanti hoon ki main sirf tumhari nafrat ke kaabil hoon. Main Tamanna ke pass isliye nahi jaati ki tum mujhe uske saath dekh kar maaf kar do. Main jaanti hoon ki aisa kabhi nahi hoga... aur na main chahati hoon ki jo kuch maine tumhare saath kiya wo sab bhool kar tum mujhe maaf kar do. Main tumhari maafi ke laayak nahi hoon. Lekin mujhe Tamanna achhi lagti hai... meri patient hone ke saath saath... maine usme ek bahut achhi behen bhi paayi hai. Main sirf uski khaatir uske pass jaati hoon... Main kabhi bhi uska faayda nahi uthaungi... Par agar tumhe ye bura lagta hai to aaj se main use milne nahi jaungi... Dr.Kirti se bhi keh dungi ki wo kisi aur ko Tamanna ka attending doctor bana dein. Waise bhi tum to ho hi uske saath... you can do better than me. Pata nahi tumhe kisi aur par bhi vishwaas ho... na ho?
Ridhimaa turned away to leave. She was at the door when Armaan spoke.
Armaan: Dr.Kirti se kuch bhi kehne ki zaroorat nahi hai. Mujhe jo kehna hoga wo main khud keh sakta hoon. Tum Tammy ka treatment achhe se kar rahi ho... aur use tum bahut pasand bhi ho. Bas uska vishwaas mat todna... main uska dukh bardaasht nahi kar paunga.
Ridhimaa turned unbelievingly towards Armaan and nearly bumped into him as he was coming up the stairs. Armaan did not look at her. Ridhimaa again turned towards the door. Her hand was on the handle of the door when Armaan again spoke up.
Armaan: Aur sir dard ke liye medicine lene ki jagah khaana kha lena...
Ridhimaa was surprised that Armaan knew about her headache and also that she was going to take some medicine for it. She was so shocked that she turned abruptly and now, really bumped into Armaan. Armaan was able to maintain his balance but Ridhimaa could not and was about to fall down the stairs when Armaan's arms seized her before the fall.
Ridhimaa, who was anticipating a fall and had closed her eyes, was caught in Armaan's strong arms. Armaan saw Ridhimaa's beautiful face so close to him. He could feel her. Ridhimaa opened her eyes and found Armaan gazing at her. She dropped her gaze. Armaan helped her to straighten up and quickly left from there, before Ridhimaa could decipher the love in his eyes. Ridhimaa too went out of the Fire Escape. She wiped her face and proceeded to the locker room, while Armaan went to Tamanna's room.
Tamanna: Ammy... Ridz mili?
Armaan did not answer. He went right up to Tamanna's side and sat down. Ridhimaa too came there.
Nani: Ridhimaa... tum kahan chali gayi thi?
Ridhimaa: Kahin bhi to nahi... yahin par thi... Sanjeevani me.
Anjali: Pata hai hum sb kitna pareshaan ho gaye the. Hume tujhe sab jagah dhoondha aur fir end me Armaan bola ki wo jaanta hai ki tum kahan ho?
Muskaan: Tum thi kahan?
Ridhimaa: Wo main... tum logon ne khaana kha liya?
Rahul: Sorry Ridhimaa. Hum sabne tumhare bina hi khaana kha liya... aur wo khatam bhi ho gaya.
Anjali: Sab Atul aur Muskaan ki wajah se. Khaana dekhte hi dono toot pade.
Nani: To ab khaana nahi bacha?
Ridhimaa: Koi baat nahi, main shaam ko ghar jaakar kha lungi.
Nani: Is bechaari ne mujhe phone karke tum sabke liye khaana mangwaaya aur tum sabne iske liye hi khaana nahi bachaya? Ridhimaa to subah itni jaldi Sanjeevani aa gayi thi ki beakfast bhi nahi kiya. Keh rahi thi ki canteen me kha legi. Aur canteen band hai...
Muskaan: Sorry Ridz. Wo mujhe bahut bhookh lagi thi...
Anjali: You should be. Pata hai Armaan ne ek baar bataya tha ki bina khaana khaaye, Ridz ki tabiyat kharaab ho jaati hai.
Tamanna: Haan us din bhi to isiliye Ridz faint ho gayi thi.
Atul: Sorry Ridz...
Ridhimaa: It's OK Atul, Muskaan. Isme tumhari kya galti hai? Aur main bilkul theek hoon... mujhe bhookh nahi lagi hai.
Kirti: Dr.Ridhimaa... aapne subah se na kuch khaaya hai, na piya hai... din bhar duities ki hain... aur aap keh rahi hain ki aapko bhookh nahi lag rahi?
Shubhankar: Kamaal hai!
Armaan was surprised. Ridhimaa was so considerate towards others' feelings but she had dumped him, who loved her so much.
Kirti: Dr.Ridhimaa... aap abhi ghar jaiye. Aur kuch kha lijiye... aapki duties koi aur sambhaal lega.
Ridhimaa: Nahi mam, I'm perfectly OK.
Anjali: Are you sure?
Ridhimaa: Yes Di.
Nani: Achha to fir main chalti hoon...
Nani goes away. The other interns, Kirti and Shubhankar also leave. Armaan too leaves the room. Ridhimaa goes towards Tamanna.
Ridhimaa: Tumhari medicines ka time ho gaya hai.
She helps Tamanna take the medicines with a glass of water.
Tamanna: Bahut kadwi hai...
Ridhimaa: Kadwi to hogi hi... ab chocolate ki tarah meethi to nahi ho sakti... pata hai mujhe bhi medicines bilkul achhi nahi lagti.
Tamanna: To fir tum kya karti ho?
Ridhimaa: Bachpan me to Papa mere doodh me dawaaiyan mix kar dete the.
Tamanna: Aur ab?
Ridhimaa: Ab Armaan mujhe dawaai zabardasti khila deta hai...
Then she remembered.
Ridhimaa: (correcting herself) I mean... khila deta tha...
Armaan who was coming inside had listened Ridhimaa's last words.
Tamanna: Ammy... tum kahan gaye the?
Armaan ignored the question, came upto Tamanna and put a package on the table.
Tamanna: Ye kya hai?
Armaan: Lunch hai... tumhari dost ke liye...
Ridhimaa: Lekin mujhe bhookh nahi lagi...
Armaan rounded on her.
Armaan: Don't lie. I know ki tumhara bhookh ki wajah se sir dard ho raha hai... ab seedhi tarah se kha lo warna... warna main ye ice-creams kisi aur ko de dunga.
Armaan pointed to the ice-cream cup he was holding in his hands. Ridhimaa smiled at the temptation.
Tamanna: Ridz kha lo na... Ammy kitni mehnat se laaya hai...
Ridhimaa started to eat.
Tamanna: Ammy mujhe bhi ice cream khaani hai...
Armaan: Yes of course... main tumhare liye bhi laaya hoon... strawberry...
Tamanna: Tumhe yaad hai?
Armaan opened another ice-cream cup and started feeding Tamanna.
PART 177: Ridhimaa was watching this scene out of the corner of her eyes. She was very happy for Tamanna that at least, she had got her true love. Her own dreams would never be fulfilled. Armaan was also eating the ice-cream from the same cup as Tamanna. Ridhimaa finished her food. She stood up to leave.
Armaan: (astonished) Ice-cream nahi khaogi?
Ridhimaa: (lying) Nahi... mera mann nahi kar raha...
Armaan was shocked to see Ridhimaa refusing her favourite ice-cream.
Tamanna: Ye kya baat hoti hai Ridz? Tumhare hisse ki ice-cream ka hoga kya? Tumhe khaani padegi... waise bhi Ammy treat de raha hai... apni nayi car ke liye...
Ridhimaa: (remembering) Oh! Congratulations.
Armaan did not thank her. Ridhimaa took the ice-cream cup kept on the table, opened it and wrinkled her nose. Armaan was watching her closely.
Armaan: Kya hua?
Ridhimaa: Wo ye... black currant...
He knew that Ridhimaa hated this flavour. He passed her another ice-cream cup.
Armaan: Wo meri hai... ye waali tumhari hai...
Ridhimaa opened the next ice-cream cup. It was chocolate. Her favourite. But she was still gazing at the ice-cream.
Tamanna: Kya hua? Ye bhi nahi pasand?
Ridhimaa: Nahi wo... black currant flavour to Armaan ko bhi nahi achha lagta.
Armaan: Mujhe to bahut kuch nahi achha lagta... itne dino me logon ke tastes aur choices badal jaate hain...
They all finished their ice-creams.
Tamanna: Ridz... sorry.
Ridhimaa: Kis baat ke liye?
Tamanna: Wo Ammy ne jo kuch kaha tha wo... he didn't mean it...
Armaan glared at Tamanna.
Ridhimaa: Tamanna... maine tumse kaha tha na ki thank you aur sorry...
Tamanna: Oh haan! Friendship me no sorrys, no thank yous, hai na?
Armaan was taken aback. This was the same line which he had repeated several times to Ridhimaa.
Ridhimaa: Aur Armaan ne jo bhi kaha, uske liye I don't blame him.
Tamanna: Par kyun? Usne tumhare saath...
Ridhimaa: Kuch nahi kiya. Maine uske saath zyada bura kiya hai... uske liye ye sab to bahut kam hai. Use to mujhe saza deni chahiye...
Armaan turned his face away.
Tamanna: Ammy tum Ridz ko kaun si saza doge?
Armaan did not answer.
Tamanna: Ridz, tumhe sach me bura nahi laga jo Ammy ne kaha?
Ridhimaa: Na... nahi to.
Tamanna: Mujhe ek baat samajh me nahi aati. Jin logon ko jhooth bolna nahi aata wo koshish hi kyun karte hain?
Ridhimaa could not understand what Tamanna was trying to say.
Tamanna: Ridz, ek baat bolun, tum bura to nahi maanogi?
Tamanna: Ridz, tum jhooth mat bola karo. Humesha pakdi jaogi. Tum jhooth bol to leti ho, lekin ye jo tumhari badi badi khoobsurat aankhen hain na, wo humesha sach keh deti hain, tumhare jhooth ka saath nahi deti.
Ridhimaa was surprised. Armaan too used to say that very thing about her.
Ridhimaa: Tamanna... mujhe jaana hai, duties bhi to karni ha. Bye!
Tamanna: Ridz thodi der aur... waise bhi tumhari tabiyat...
Ridhimaa: (smiling) Tamanna... I'm perfectly fine. Kal milungi... OK?
Tamanna: (sadly) OK.
Ridhimaa: (hugging Tamanna) Itni udaas kyun ho rahi ho? Main border pe thode hi ja rahi hoon... ki waapas nahi aungi...
Armaan looked up terrified.
Ridhimaa: Achha, bye.
Ridhimaa leaves. Tamanna was sad. When Ridhimaa used to be around, she used to liven everything up for her. Armaan noticed her sadness.
Armaan: Tammy... main to hoon na tumhare pass...
Tamanna: Tum ho lekin tum Ridhimaa nahi ho na...
Armaan: (scandalised) Tumhe wo mujhse zyada achhi lagti hai?
Tamanna: Tumse zyada nahi lekin tumse kam bhi nahi. Pata hai, wo mera itna khayal rakhti hai jaise meri behen ho...
Armaan remembered what Ridhimaa had said about Tamanna.
Tamanna: Waise Ridz tumhe mili kahan? Baaki sab ko kyun nahi mili?
Armaan: Wo... Tammy... kal 8th October hai...
Tamanna: (changing the topic) Oh haan. Main to bhool hi gayi thi. Achha kiya jo tumne yaad dila diya. Kal to wo film release ho rahi hai na jiske saare gaane tumne gaaye hain? Shahrukh Khan aur Priety Zinta ki? Tumne baaki sabko bataya is baare me?
Armaan: Kaun baaki sab?
Tamanna: Mera matlab Rahul, Atul, Anjali, Muskaan, Ridhimaa...
Rahul: (entering) Ye hume kyun batane laga? Hum sab to iske dushman hain, hai na?
Rahul, Muskaan, Atul, Anjali, Kirti and Shubhankar had entered.
Tamanna: Ridz... Ridz kahan hai?
Anjali: Ridz ICU me duty de rahi hai.
Tamanna: Kyun? Uski to tabiyat kharaab hai, tum log uski help kyun nahi kar rahe? Mujhe usse baatein karni hain.
Kirti: Tamanna... Dr.Ridhimaa ab bilkul theek hain. I asked her. Aur shayad abhi abhi to wo yahan se gayi hain...
Tamanna: Lekin Ridz...
Atul: Bahut friendship ho gayi hai tumhari Ridz se?
Tamanna: Haan... wo hai hi itni pyari.
Muskaan: Hum bhi koi kam pyaare to nahi hain...
Tamanna: Haan lekin ek wo hi to hai jo apni duties ke bawjood mujhse milne aati hai... meri itni care karti hai, mujhse itna pyar karti hai.
Rahul: Armaan lagta hai tera competition aa gaya... I mean aa gayi... kyun Tamanna? Tum kise zyada pyar karti ho... Armaan ko ki Ridhimaa ko?
Tamanna: Tum batao...
Rahul: Armaan ko... aur kisey?
Tamanna: To fir tum poochh kyun rahe ho? Waise mujhe Ridhimaa bhi bahut achhi lagti hai... bilkul Armaan jaisi.
Rahul: Armaan teri film release ho rahi hai aur tune hume bataya tak nahi. Bechaari Muskaan to kitne din se mere peechhe padi hai ki main tujhse bolkar ek aur album nikalwaun, jaise ye sab mere haath me hai. Use kya pata ki tu mujhe bhi apna dost nahi samajhta...
Armaan: Rahul, tu jaanta hai ki aisi baat nahi hai...
Rahul: Pehle to tu apna chashma nikaal. Mujhe bada odd lagta hai, pata hi nahi chalta ki tu kya soch raha hai. Aur waise bhi ye power waala chashma to hai nahi, teri eyesight to perect hai... to tu ye chashma kyun lagaata hai?
Armaan: Wo... bas aise hi...
Shubhankar: Lekin Rahul, Armaan in chashme me pehle se zyada mature aur serious lagta hai, hai na. Handsome to ye pehle se tha...
Tamanna: Yes Dr.Shubhankar... Ammy tum ye glasses hata do. Tumhari blue eyes itni sundar hain, pata nahi unhe kyun chhupaate ho.
Armaan ignored them all.
Atul: Armaan teri nayi film aa rahi hai?
Armaan did not answer. Atul looked sadly at Rahul, who looked at Tamanna.
PART 178:Rahul: Armaan... Atul kuch poochh raha hai...
Armaan: (savagely) Kaun Atul?
Tamanna: (reproachfully) Armaan!
Atul went away, hiding his stricken face.
Anjali: Issey pehle ki ye bole kaun Anjali, kaun Muskaan... hum log bhi jaate hain. Bye Tamanna, take care.
Muskaan and Anjali too walk out. Shubhankar and Kirti look at each other.
Kirti: Miss Tamanna... Dr.Ridhimaa ne aapki medication change ki hain. Koi faayda hua ussey?
Tamanna: Yes Dr.Kirti... kaafi aaraam mila hai... ab zyada pain bhi nahi hota.
Kirti: Good... unhone aapki reports mujhe dikhayi thi... aapki recovery bahut achhi tarah se ho rahi hai...
Tamanna: Mam, Ridhimaa bahut achhi doctor hai. Aap usi ko Intern Of The Month banaiyega.
Shubhankar: I am sorry Miss Tamanna, lekin Sanjeevani me ab Intern Of The Month Award nahi milta. We have dropped it with universal agreement.
Armaan was shocked.
Armaan: (inspite of himself) Kyun?
Shubhankar: Dr.Armaan... kyunki aapki absence me Dr.Ridhimaa ko ye award mila tha... aur...
Rahul: Aur Ridhimaa ne award lene se mana kar diya.
Tamanna: But why?
Kirti: Kyunki unhe laga ki is award ka asli haqdaar koi aur hai. Hum logon ne kisi aur ko ye award dena decide kiya tha lekin fir ... Well, unhone kaha ki wo ye award nahi le sakti. Fir humare interns ne Dr.Shashank ko application di ki chahe jise ye award diya jaaye, wo ise accept nahi karenge. We all thought that it was better to put an end to the award.
Tamanna: Jab aapne decide kiya tha ki kisi aur ko ye award milna hai to aap ye award Ridhimaa ko kyun de rahe the?
Shubhankar: Kyunki agar kisi ki death ho jaaye to award second best ko de diya jaata hai. Dr.Armaan ne International Interns Conference me itna achha kaam kiya tha ki we all decided to givre him the award. But fir us news ki wajah se humne Dr.Ridhimaa ko award dene ki koshish ki. She refused altogether. Waise bhi wo khud ko Dr.Armaan ki death ka zimmedaar maanti thi... isiliye hume ye award hi cancel karna pada.
Tamanna: Ridhimaa ne mujhe ye sab kyun nahi bataya?
Rahul: Tamanna, tum abhi tak Ridhimaa ko kitna jaan paayi ho?
Tamanna: Kya matlab?
Rahul: Matlab ye ki usne kabhi tumhare saamne, khud se koi baat shuru ki hai? Has she initiated any conversation? Jab tak tum ussey koi baat nahi poochhti, kya wo kuch bhi bolti hai? Tumne Ridhimaa ko kabhi bhi khul kar hanste hue dekha hai?
Tamanna put her brains into action and started thinking. Armaan too tried to remember when he had seen Ridhimaa smiling or laughing since he had returned.
There was a moment's pause when both Armaan and Tamanna racked their brains.
Tamanna: Nahi, kabhi nahi. Wo bas mujhse meri health ke baare me baat karti hai. Jo main poochti hoon, usika answer deti hai. Maine kabhi use hanste hue nahi dekha. I am so selfish. Maine kabhi dhyan nahi diya ki wo itni chup chaap rehti hai. Is she not like this?
Tamanna looked enquiringly at Rahul, Shubhankar and Kirti. All of them bowed their heads.
Tamanna: Ammy... Ridz pehle bhi aisi hi thi? Kuch nahi bolti thi, kabhi nahi hansti thi?
Armaan: Nahi... pehle to wo bahut...
Them he looked at Rahul.
Armaan: Wo tum logon ke saath bhi...
Rahul: Armaan... tum logon ke saath kam se kam wo answer to karti hai. Lekin jab wo humare saath hoti hai to kisi bhi discussion, conversation me part nahi leti. Sabse alag, alag rehti hai. Wo Ridhimaa jise hum sab jaante the... wo shayad marr gayi hai. Jab se tumhari death ki news mili thi... us din ke baad se wo kabhi nahi royi. Jab bhi hum log tumhare baare me baat karte, wo wahan se uth kar chali jaati. Ridhimaa ne hansna to chod hi diya hai. Our heart bleeds for her... sensing her silence.
Tamanna: Lekin wo aisi kyun ho gayi?
Rahul: Tamanna, first you should understand one thing. Jis din Armaan ka kidnap hua tha, usi din sab logon ne uski insult ki thi, use jhootha aur dhokhebaaz kaha tha aur un logon me Ridhimaa bhi shaamil thi.
Kirti: Par unki galti nahi thi... wo to maan hi nahi rahi thi ki Dr.Armaan aisa kar sakte hain. Lekin hum logon ne hi unhe force kiya tha Mr.Mallik ki baat maanne ke liye... aur Dr.Shashank ne unse waada liya tha ki wo Dr.Armaan se apna rishta...
Rahul: (covering up) ... ki wo Armaan se dosti na rakhe. Armaan ke jaane ke baad, usi din maine sabko sachhai batayi, fir Armaan ke papa ki death ho gayi. That night, we all discussed how to bring Armaan back, ki tabhi hume wo news mili aur Inspector Tiwari ne hum sabko Sanjeevani body ki identification ke liye bulaya. Us terrorist ka blood group O+ tha. Uske pass se Armaan ki shirt ka tukda, uski watch aur ek photo mili thi. Hum sabko laga ki wo Armaan hi hai. Ye sunte hi Ridhimaa...
Shubhankar: Behosh ho gayi aur jab hosh me aayi to raat bhar roti rahi. Hum sab bahut dukhi the, kisi ki aankhon se aansun tham nahi rahe the. Maine pehli baar Dr.Atul ko is tarah rote hue dekha tha. Well, us raat ke baad hum sabne Dr.Ridhimaa ki aankhon me kabhi aansun nahi dekhe.
Rahul: Shayad Ridhimaa ke saare aansun usi raat beh gaye the. Usne khud se ek waada sa kar liya tha, hum logon ke saamne na rone ka. Hum sabko laga ki shayad hum logon ki tarah wo bhi normal ho rahi hai... lekin wo to depression ki taraf chali gayi. Hum jab bhi Armaan ke baare me baat karte, wo wahan se chali jaati. Hum me se kisi se bhi koi baat nahi karti. Aansuon ki tarah hansi ke liye bhi uske chehre par koi jagah nahi thi.
Kirti: Dr.Rahul ke samjhaane par baaki sabne to apne aap ko Dr.Armaan ka kaatil maanna chod diya... but Dr.Ridhimaa could'nt do it.
Rahul: Tum Ridhimaa ko jab jaanogi tab samajh me aayega ki Ridhimaa ek aisi ladki hai jo doosron ke baare me to humesha achha sochti hai lekin khud ke baare me bahut jaldi bura soch leti hai. Har baat ke liye khud ko doshi maan leti hai. Armaan ka jaana, uska accident, uska kidnap aur uski so-called death; sabke liye uska dil usi ko doshi banaata hai. Aise me wo hans-bol kaise sakti hai? Wo andar se bahut depressed hai, kahin na kahin jaanti hai ki is baat ke liye kewal wahi doshi nahi hai lekin uski aadat hai ki wo doosron ko jaldi maaf kar deti hai aur khud ko saza dene ki koshish kaarti hai. Tumne dekha na, ki aaj hum sabke lunch khatm kar dene par usne kaise is baat ko ignore kar diya aur bol diya ki use bhookh nahi lagi? Jabki hum sab jaante hain ki bhookh ki wajah se uski tabiyat kharaab ho jaati hai. Uska jhooth sab log pakad lete hain kyunki use jhooth bolne ki aadat nahi hai.
Shubhankar: Kuch log aise hote hain jinhe khud se zyada doosron ki chinta hoti hai, khud ki khushi se zyada doosron ki khushi ki parwaah hoti hai, khud ke dukh se zyada doosron ka dukh kam karne ki koshish karte hain.
Kirti: Dr.Ridhimaa bilkul aisi hi hain. Ab unhone apne aap ko sirf kaam me involve kar liya hai. Duties, duties and more duties...
Rahul: Armaan... pehle Ridhimaa hum sab se kitni baatein karti thi, tere saath kitni ladaiyan karti thi, kitni shararatein karti thi... yaad hai? Lekin ab... Aur jabse Armaan waapas aaya hai, uska shak yakeen me badal gaya hai. Pehle to use lagta tha ki Armaan jahan bhi hoga, usse nafrat karta hoga, use gunehgaar maanta hoga, lekin Armaan ke behaviour ko dekh ke use yakeen ho gaya hai ki wo sach me usse nafrat karta hai, use hi doshi maanta hai. Kewal do hi baatein sahi hui hain Armaan ke aane ke baad... ek to Ridhimaa ne rona fir se shuru kar diya hai...
Tamanna: Aur doosri?
Rahul: Aur doosri ki use itni achhi dost mil gayi hai jiski wajah se usne thoda bahut bolna shuru kar diya hai.
Kirti: Dr.Armaan is galat fehmi me mat rahiyega ki wo aapki wajah se yahan aati hain, Dr.Ridhimaa sach me Miss Tamanna se bahut pyar karti hain aur sirf unhi ke liye aati hain.
Tamanna looked at Armaan who was dumbstruck. What all had happened to Ridhimaa. She had changed so much, even more than him. Armaan didn't know if he was still angry with them all. He now knew the truth.
Shubhankar: Dr.Armaan... aapne abhi tak hum logon ko maaf nahi kiya?
Armaan did not answer. He was duelling this very thought in his mind. His mind had forgiven them all, his heart too was ready to forgive every one. But Armaan was not yet sure.
Rahul: Tamanna... shayad Armaan ne abhi tak hum sabko maaf nahi kiya. Koi baat nahi Armaan, hum tumhe force nahi karenge. Tumhe poora haq hai ki tum hume maaf na karo.
Just then Muskaan entered, all stared at her.
PART 179:Rahul: Kya hua?
Muskaan: Tu itni der se yahan kya kar raha hai?
Rahul: Baatein kar raha tha...
Muskaan: (whispering) Film ke baare me kuch poochha?
All heard it. Armaan smiled.
Rahul: (glaring at Muskaan) Mere pass aur koi important baat nahi hai karne ke liye? Tu kyun humesha mera sir khaati rehti hai?
Muskaan: Dekh... ab tu shuru mat ho warna main bhi peechhe hatne waalon me se nahi hoon...
Tamanna: Muskaan... kal Ammy ki film release ho rahi hai... uski kuch spare CDs Armaan ke ghar me rakhi hain. Wo kal tum sabke liye ek-ek le aayega.
Muskaan: (springing up excitedly) Sach?
Rahul: Haan haan...
Muskaan: Oye tu chup kar aur mere saath chal. Atul, Anjali bhi ghar ja rahe hain. Chalo... der ho rahi hai aur tune kaha tha ki tu mujhe paani puri khilaane le jaayega.
Rahul: Haan... yaad hai. Chal. Mere paise kharch karwaane ki tujhe badi jaldi rehti hai... aur Ridhimaa nahi chal rahi?
Muskaan: Nahi... wo apni duty khatm karke aayegi.
Rahul, Muskaan: (together) Bye Armaan, bye Tamanna.
Armaan, Tamanna: (together) Bye...
Shubhankar: Kirti, chalein?
They both too went out. Armaan rested his back against the sofa and closed his eyes.
Tamanna: Ammy, tumne abhi tak kisi ko maaf nahi kiya?
Armaan: Pata nahi...
Tamanna: Iska matlab tumne maaf kar diya... hai na?
Armaan: Maine kaha na pata nahi... I am confused. Agar maine ek baar maaf kar diya to iski kya guarantee hai ki kal wo log fir se mujhe galat nahi samjhenge?
Tamanna: Rishton me guarantee nahi hoti Ammy. Aur is baat ki kya guaranatee hai ki kal main tumhe galat nahi samjhungi? Galtiyan sabse ho jaati hai aur in logon ne tumhe khokar bahut badi saza bhugti hai. Ammy agar tum in logon ko maaf kar doge to tumhe aur inhe, sabko khushi hogi. Aur main itna to jaanti hoon ki tum in sabse ab bhi bahut pyar karte ho.
Armaan: Are you sure about that?
Tamanna: Yes, I am.
That night at around 8:00 p.m. Armaan took Tamanna's leave for the day. She had forced him to go back home for the night and come back in the morning. Meanwhile, Ridhimaa's duty was also over. She too went to her car. But both the front tyres were punctured. She also did not have any spare tyre. Anjali and Rahul had already gone. Shashank too was out of town. She kicked the flat tyre, which hurt her foot slightly.
Armaan saw Ridhimaa doing so and smiled at her desperation. Ridhimaa had gone and stood on the road to find a taxi. But none of the taxis were stopping. Ridhimaa thought there was only one way out. She went and stood on the middle of the road to hire a taxi. A taxi was coming from the oposite side, where Ridhimaa wasn't looking. The taxi was coming at a high speed and was about to crash into Ridhimaa when Armaan pulled Ridhimaa out of the harms' way. Only her hand brushed against the car, from which blood started oozing out. Due to the force of the pull, she was jammed onto Armaan's chest who pushed her away. The taxi had gone without stopping.
Armaan: (shouting) Paagal ho gayi ho kya? Is tarah se taxi waalon se lift maangogi to wo tumhe kuchal kar aagey badh jayenge. Don't you know, ye Mumbai ke Taxi drivers kaise hote hain?
Ridhimaa stared at Armaan. He was rebuking her as if he cared for her.
Ridhimaa: Wo main... meri car...
Armaan: (leaving Ridhimaa's hand with a force) Shut up! Abhi tumhara accident ho jaata to?
Her eyes brimmed with tears but not due to her bleeding hand.
Armaan: Sorry. Chalo main tumhe ghar drop kar doon.
Armaan started walking towards his new car. Ridhimaa kept standing there as if glued to the spot.
Armaan: (looking back) Ab kisi aur taxi ka intzaar karogi jo tumhe takkar maare?
Ridhimaa: Main apne aap chali jaungi...
Armaan: Dekho... mujhe gussa mat dilao... ya to car me baitho ya fir waapas Sanjeevani ke andar chali jao. Yahan mat khadi raho...
Armaan sat in the car, and pulled it to a stop near Ridhimaa. He opened the front door of the car for her. Ridhimaa had no other option but to sit down. As soon as Ridhimaa entered, Armaan speeded up the car. He brought the car to a nearly empty road. Armaan wanted to test the car's speed. Ridhimaa was terrified.
Ridhimaa: Armaan... speed kam karo...
Armaan slowed down the car very much. It was now crawling on the road.
Ridhimaa: Armaan... ye speed...
Armaan: Shhh... main test drive kar raha hoon... dikh nahi raha?
Ridhimaa kept mum. After a few seconds, Armaan put the speed back to normal with a satisfied expression on his face. Ridhimaa was the first one to sit in this car with him. Blood was still oozing out of Ridhimaa's wound. She wrapped her dupatta around the wound. Armaan saw her doing this.
Armaan: Peechhe tissues ka box rakha hai... use kar lo...
Ridhimaa turned her head and found a box of tissues next to the guitar which she had gifted Armaan. Her eyes again moistened on thinking about it. Nevertheless, she turned again to face the front, holding a tissue against the wound. Her eyes darted to the dashboard where a cassette of 'Tu Zindagi' was kept. She wanted to say to Armaan that she would like to hear it but she knew that she had lost this right long ago. Armaan sensed her thoughts. He himself put the cassette in the player and the song Asmaani Rang Ho filled the air. Armaan too was singing alongside.
Asmaani Rang Ho... pyar ki boond ho,
Roshni ho, dhoop ho... chahaton ki goonj ho.
Aanchal me hai dhanak chandni, haathon me wo chaand hai...
Gairon se bhi hai waasta, apno me pehchaan hai....
Tarararataariraa... tarararataariraa... tarararataariraa... tu zindagi... Ridhimaa was lost in the song completely. Armaan chanced a galnce at her. Her eyes were closed. He changed the song and put a film song... Pappu Can't Dance. Ridhimaa opened her eyes with a jerk. She looked at Armaan who was calmly driving the car and was angry. Armaan noted her frustration and put off the music. Now there was silence in the car.
Asmaani Rang hoon... pyar ki boond hoon,
Roshni ka ang hoon... main teri rooh hoon.
Tujhse hi hai meri bandagi, tujhse meri jaan hai...
Saaya tera mera aashiyaan, tu mera armaan hai...
Tarararataariraa... tarararataariraa... tarararataariraa... tu zindagi... Ridhimaa smiled. Armaan stopped singing suddenly and stopped the car. Armaan stepped down from the car and opened the door from Ridhimaa's side. They had reached her house. Ridhimaa too stepped down and closed the door. She started walking ahead and felt a tug at her dupatta. Her first thought was that Armaan might be holding it, but she knew it would not happen. Ridhimaa looked around. Her dupatta was stuck in the door's handle. She pulled it free.
Ridhimaa: Thanks... for the lift.
Ridhimaa walked away. Armaan watched her go. Nani opened the door and saw Armaan entering the car.
Nani: Armaan ko bula laati... khaana kha leta.
Ridhimaa: Wo nahi aayega...
Nani: Tu ja... main aati hoon.
Ridhimaa entered the house. A few minutes later, Anjali and Padma sitting on the dining table were surprised to see Armaan entering the dining room.
PART 180:Padma: (standing up) Armaan!
She rushed upto him. This was the first time that she was seeing him so close after the night he had returned. Tears were flowing down her cheeks.
Padma: (pulling Arman into a hug) Armaan...
Armaan: (separating himself) Aap kaisi hain?
Padma: Main bilkul theek hoon... aur tum?
Armaan: Jaisa bhi hoon, aapke samne hoon...
Just then the song Asmaani Rang Ho... filled the atmosphere. Armaan looked up surprised. He tried to find from where the soud seemed to be issuing.
Padma: (calling from there) Ridhimaa... volume kam karo...
Ridhimaa: (from her room) Ji mom...
Armaan knew Ridhimma must be playing the song as it had remained incomplete in the car.
Padma: Armaan... tum kaafi badal gaye ho... aur ye chashma kyun laga rakha hai?
Armaan: Wo bas aise hi...
Padma took out his glasses and gave it to Armaan.
Padma: Tum doosron ki baat mat suno. Mujhe ye chashma bilkul bhi achha nahi lag raha tumhare upar.
Armaan: Theek hai... ab nahi lagaunga... aap sach sach bhi keh deti, to bhi main aapki baat maan leta.
Padma: (smiling) Achha... ye batao tum waapas kyun aaye?
Armaan was surprised. Padma was the first one who was rebuking him for coming back.
Armaan: Kya matlab?
Padma: Matlab ye ki tum to hum sabse nafrat karte ho... fir waapas aane ka matlab?
Armaan: (sadly) Wo main Tamanna ke kehne par... kuch din baad chala jaunga... jaise hi Tammy theek ho jaayegi. Zyada din tak aap logon ko pareshaan nahi karunga.
Padma: Thappad kahoge agar jaaney ki baat ki to...
Armaan: Aapki marzi...
Padma: Chalo baitho... khaana khao...
Armaan: Nahi main ghar jaake noodles...
Padma: Tabhi main sochun itne kamzor kaise ho gaye tum... khaana jo nahi khaate... agar tum mujhse nafrat nahi karte to ab seedhi tarah baith jao.
Armaan sat down beside Anjali. She was elated. Armaan did not look angry. Instead his face was calm.
Padma: (calling from the kitchen) Ridhimaa beta... gaana baad me sun lena... pehle neeche aake khaana kha lo...
Ridhimaa: (putting off the music) Ji mom...
Ridhimaa came downstairs and entered the kitchen. Armaan could hear the voices coming from there.
Padma: Arrey ye chot kaise lagi?
Ridhimaa: Bas ek taxi aa rahi thi... usi se... mom bandage kar dijiye... mujhse nahi ho raha.
Padma: Ek haath se hoga bhi nahi. Tumhe pehle batana chahiye tha... itna khoon beh gaya. Ab tumhe dawaai bhi leni padegi...
Ridhimaa: Mom dawaai ki zaroorat nahi hai...
Padma: Hai kaise nahi? Kal tumhare papa waapas aayenge to bolenge ki unki beti ka hum logon ne khayal nahi rakha. Jao pehle ye first-aid box lekar jao... Anjali tumhari dressing kar degi. Khaana khaane ke baad dawaai bhi khaani padegi...
Ridhimaa: Mom please... mujhe bilkul bhi dard nahi ho raha...
Padma: Ridhimaa... tumne suna jo maine kaha? Dekho kitna blood beh raha hai... pehle dressing to karwa lo... lao main kar deti hoon...
Ridhimaa: Nahi... aap kaam kijiye... main Di se karwa lungi...
Ridhimaa leaves the kitchen and comes to the dining room carrying the first aid box in her other hand.
Ridhimaa: Di... ye bandage...
She stops, stunned at the sight of Armaan who was drinking a glass of water. Anjali goes upto Ridhimaa and takes the first-aid box from her frozen hands.
Anjali: (bandaging Ridhimaa's hand) Ridz... Ridz...
Ridhimaa: (shaking herself up) Haan... haan?
Anjali: Ab dard to nahi ho raha? Tumhari dressing ho gayi.
Ridhimaa: (checking her hand) Nahi... nahi ho raha.
Till then Padma and Nani bring the food and laid out the dinner. Ridhimaa tried to help them.
Anjali: Ridz, tum baitho, aaj main serve kar dungi.
Ridhimaa chose a place as far as she could from Armaan. But Armaan was not looking at her. Anjali served the dinner in Armaan's plate too.
Armaan: (whispering so that only Anjali could hear) Thanks Anjy...
Anjali: (surprised) What did you just say?
Armaan: (whispering) Shhh... I said, thanks Anjy for the dinner. Understood?
Anjali: (softly) Tumne mujhe Anjy kaha? Tum ab mujse gussa nahi ho?
Armaan: Aisa hi samajh lo.
Anjali smiled and proceeded to hug him. Armaan pushed her away. The others were surprised.
Armaan: (loudly) Kya kar rahi ho?
Anjali understood that Armaan wanted it to be a secret. Maybe he was still angry with Ridhimaa.
Anjali: Oh... sorry... I just lost my balance.
She winked at Armaan who smiled.
Armaan: It's OK.
They all started eating.
Padma: Armaan... Anjali bata rahi thi ki kal ek film release ho rahi hai Shahrukh Khan aur Priety Zinta ki, jiske saare gaane tumne gaaye hain.
Ridhimaa was shocked.
Armaan: Ji... ho rahi hai... kal usi ka premier hai... Yashraj Studios me.
Anjali: Yashraj Studios? Wow!
Ridhimaa was flabbergasted. Shahrukh was her favourite actor, and Armaan her favourite...
Armaan: But I won't go.
Armaan: Wo Tamanna...
Anjali: Tum uski chinta kyun kar rahe ho? Use Ridz sambhal legi. Hai na Ridz?
Ridhimaa: Of course!
Armaan: Main akela wahan jaakar kya karunga?
Padma: Tum us film ke lead singer ho, tumhari pehli film hai, wo bhi itne bade stars ke saath... sabke saath interact karna aur kya?
Armaan: Aap chalengi mere saath?
Padma: Nahi... main kya karungi jaakar? Tum jao...
Nani: Tum kisi aur ko bhi le ja sakte ho.
Nani: Jaise use jisse tum nafrat na karte ho.
Armaan: Haan... baat to theek hai. Main kal poochunga. Lekin Sanjeevani se chutti mil jaayegi?
Padma: Haan... kyun nahi milegi? Aur waise bhi premier to shaam ko hoga na.
Armaan: Haan... aap sach me nahi chalengi?
Anjali: Tum kise lekar jaoge?
Armaan: Use jisse main nafrat nahi karta hoon.
Anjali: Uska naam?
Armaan: You'll get to know about it tomorrow.
Saying so Armaan left after hugging Padma and Nani and handing a paper secretly to Anjali, who opened it to find Armaan's new mobile number in it.
Guys… I accepted your requests and posted 20 parts… well these are your hard-earned parts… after all, you all have loved and supported me all through the way.
Now I want a little favour from you… these days I’m a little busy in studies… so if some one could make a recap of the episodes… and post it in the comment section, I’d be very grateful to you. You don’t have to do much… just a simple recapitulation in 5-10 lines would be OK. It can be in Hindi/English. I hope you’d help me out for some weeks… won’t you?
