The Imperfect Marriage!

Episode-22

Recap: Pichle episode me aapne dekha tha ki Ridayjeet ke chhedne se Riddhi usse gussa hokar chali jati hai. Ye baat Manpreet ko achi nahi lagti, use darr lagta hai ki kahin Ridayjeet fir se usse naraz na ho jaye. Lekin Ridayjeet ab Mann se naraz nahi hai. Ridayjeet ki care dekh ke wo uske gale lag jati hai. Ridayjeet bhi yahi chahta tha islie wo bhi use apni bahon me samet leta hai. Mann usse puchti hai ki wo usse gussa hai ya nahi. Jiske jawab me wo use bolta hai ki wo pehle usse naraz zarur tha lekin ab wo usse naraz nahi hai. Ye sab sunke Mann khush ho jati hai aur ek hope uske dil me paida ho jati hai. Ridayjeet uske lie roti banane kitchen me jata hai, tabhi uske phone par ek call aata hai jo Mann receive kar leti hai. Wo call Jassi ka hai. Wo kuch din me Punjab wapas aa rahi hai. Ye sab sunke uski sari khushi ek sath khatam ho jati hain. Ab aage…

Manpreet ab sab sochne lagti hai. Wo sochti hai, “Shayad isilie Riday khush hai aur use maaf kar dia hai, kyunki unhe Jassi ka pata chal gaya hai. Nahi to wo achanak itne khush kyun hote. Aur main be wajah khush ho rahi thi ki wo mujhe maaf karke mujhe accept kar lenge. Wo Jassi se pyar karte hain aur uske lie wo Mumbai tak gaye the. Wo kyun mujhe accept karenge. Main bhi pagal hu, jo ye sochne lagi thi ki ab meri life me sab thik ho jaega. Par acha hai ye sab mujhe abhi pata chal gaya. Jyada hopes badh jati to fir takleef hoti, abhi to main shayad khud ko sambhal lungi.” Wo ye sab soch hi rahi hai ki Ridayjeet room me aa jata hai.

Ridayjeet: Ae lo ji garma garam rotiyan.

Manpreet apne chehre ke expressions chhupate hue smile karti hai. Ridayjeet khana khilane ke lie jaise hi pehla niwala todta hai, waise hi Mann kehti hai, “Rehne dijiye main khud kha lungi.”

Ridayjeet: Okay! Par ab ye to kha lo. Muh kholo.

Manpreet muh khol deti hai. Ridayjeet uske muh me wo bite daal deta hai. Manpreet ab roti ka tukda todti hai. Ridayjeet use dekhta hai.

Ridayjeet: Ye bite mainu khilaogi? Ya khud khaogi?

Manpreet muskurati hai aur Ridayjeet ko wo bite khila deti hai. Ridayjeet kha leta hai. Par next bite wo fir se Manpreet ko khila deta hai.

Manpreet: Aap kha lo, main kha laangi.

Ridayjeet: Tainu pata hai, ye maine tumhari biji se hi suna tha.

Manpreet: Ki suniya si?

Ridayjeet: Ki bimar ko dusre ko hi khana khilana chahiye, wo jaldi thik ho janda hai.

Manpreet: (muskura kar) Aap meri biji ki sari gallan mande ho ki?

Ridayjeet: Nai! Par ye tan manta hu. Islayi chup karke mere hath se kha lo.

Manpreet: Kab tak khilaoge aap aise mujhe?

Ridayjeet: (Manpreet ke muh me niwala dalte hue) Jab tak tussi thik nahi ho jate.

Manpreet: Aur aise mainu aadat ho gayi fir?

Ridayjeet: (sochte hue) Firrrr… nai fir tan nai khila sakda.

Manpreet: (upset hoke Jassi ki baat ke baare me sochte hue) Kyun?

Ridayjeet: Kyunki sabke samne kaise khilaunga aise? Uske lie hume apne room me hi khana khana padega. Jo bas abhi kuch din hi ho sakda hai.

Manpreet: Main ki aethe hi rehne wali hu?

Ridayjeet ko yaad aata hai Mann ne jo diary me likha tha, ki wo yahan se dur jana chahti hai sab kuch chhod ke.

Ridayjeet: Acha! Hun pehle khana kha lo. Fir baat karenge.

Ridayjeet is baare me baat nahi karna chahta kyunki wo Mann ko kahin jane nahi dena chahta. Mann samajhti hai ki wo is baare me islie baat nahi karna chahta kyunki Ridayjeet janta hai ki aaj nahi to kal Jassi wapas aa hi jaegi aur uski jagah Jassi Ridayjeet ke paas rahegi, isilie Riday ne uski is baat ka jawab nahi dia. Ridayjeet aur Mann ke beech me na jane sab clear kab hoga. Shuru se hi dono ke beech itni misunderstandings hain, na jane ye dono ko kab tak ek dusre se dur rakhengi.
Ab dono khana kha lete hain. Ridayjeet Manpreet ko sahara deke leta deta hai. Aur khud bhi apni side jake let jata hai. Manpreet apni aankhe band kar leti hai. Medicines ki wajah se aaj kal use neend bhi bhot jaldi aa jati hai, islie wo so jati hai. Ridayjeet bhi tab se Manpreet ke kaamo me laga hua hai islie wo bhi so jata hai. Lekin raat me Mann ko ek sapna aata hai. Jisme Ridayjeet aur Jassi unke room me sath me hain aur Ridayjeet Jassi ke kareeb ja raha hai. Dhire dhire Ridayjeet uske close aa raha hai, aur Jassi ke nature ke according wo usse dur nahi bhag rahi, balki Ridayjeet ko wo apni taraf kheench rahi hai. Wo dono kafi close aa chuke hain. Ridayjeet ke uske bilkul nazdeek jate hi Manpreet ki neend toot jati hai aur wo chillati hai. Mann ki awaz sunke Ridayjeet ki neend bhi khul jati hai.

Ridayjeet: Mann! Ki hoya? Sab thik hai.

Manpreet ko pasina aa raha hai. Ridayjeet use pani pilata hai.

Ridayjeet: Koi bura sapna dekha ki?

Manpreet: Shayad!

Ridayjeet: Main hu tuhadde kol. Sone ki koshish karo.

Ridayjeet Mann ko sulane ki koshish karta hai. Lekin Mann ki neend ab ud chuki hai.

Ridayjeet: Ki hoya Mann?

Manpreet: Kuch nahi.

Ridayjeet: Tainu pata hona chahiye ki hun main tainu janda han. Ye sab tu pehla kardi si jab Jassi ke bare me chupa rahi si. Te hun fir se ye sab kar rahi hai. Bol ki gal hai. Ki chupa rahi hai?

Manpreet ab frustrated feel kar rahi hai, wo apni is life se pareshan ho chuki hai. Ridayjeet jab uske piche padta hai to wo apna sara gussa uspar nikal deti hai aur chilla ke bolti hai, “Nai batana mainu. Ki karna hai?”

Ridayjeet hairan hai kyunki usne Mann ko is tarah baat karte hue kabhi nahi dekha.

Manpreet: (usi tone me) Aap so jao. I am sorry meri wajah se aapki neend kharab hui. And please, aapko ye sab karne ki zarurat nahi hai mere lie, aap mainu kal mere biji bauji ke ghar chhod dena. Main wahan reh lungi.

Ridayjeet: Lekin mainu koi problem nahi hai, ye sab karne me.

Manpreet: Lekin mainu hai.

Ridayjeet: Ki problem hai?

Manpreet: Is shadi ki wajah se aapka pehle bhi bhot time waste ho chuka hai na, to aur time main ab waste nahi karana chahti. Islayi please aap mainu kal mere biji bauji ke ghar chhad dena.

Ridayjeet: Main ye na karaan te?

Manpreet: Te main khud biji bauji nu bula laangi.

Ridayjeet: Ki hua hai tainu? Abhi tak tan thik si.

Manpreet: Abhi tak main thik nahi si, abhi thik hui hu. Is layi mainu biji bauji ke paas bhej do.

Ridayjeet: Nai bhejna maine.

Manpreet: Kyun?

Ridayjeet: Kyunki nai bhejna bas. Har chiz me behas zaruri nai hoti hai Mann.

Manpreet bed se uthne lagti hai.

Ridayjeet: Tum pagal ho gayi ho kya? Ki kar rahi ho?

Ridayjeet Manpreet ko rokta hai. Use uski jagah par leta deta hai.

Ridayjeet: Chup chap yahin leti raho. Neend aaye to bhi aur na aaye to bhi. Yahan se hili to mujhse bura koi nahi hoga.

Manpreet: Aap chahte kya ho? Main aapki koi nai hu.

Ridayjeet: Mann! Tu meri wife hai.

Manpreet: Aap nai mante par.

Ridayjeet: Jab hamari shadi hui thi, tum manti thi kya is shadi ko? Lekin hum sath reh rahe hain na. To hum husband wife hain.

Manpreet: Par ye shadi Jassi ke naam se hui hai.

Ridayjeet: Jis bhi naam se hui hai, par hui tumse hai. Wahan par tum thi mere sath. Aur koi natak nahi chahiye mainu, chup karke so ja. Nai tan dekhna main ki karanga.

Manpreet: Ki karoge?

Ridayjeet: To aise nai manogi tum? Okay!

Ridayjeet bed par let jata hai aur Manpreet ko kas ke apni bahon me pakad leta hai, jaise wo kabhi pehle kia karta tha. Lekin uske fractured pair ka dhayan rakhta hai, ki use kuch na ho.

Manpreet: Chhaddo mainu.

Ridayjeet: Hun chup karke so jao. Kyunki main tan chhadne wala nai han.

Manpreet bhot try karti hai par khud ko Ridayjeet se chhuda nahi pati. Last me wo try karna band hi kar deti hai aur sone ki koshish karti hai. Ridayjeet bhi use shant dekh ke muskurata hai. Jab wo so jati hai, tab use dekhta hai aur dhire se bolta hai, “Pagal kudi! Acha hai. Main shayad dobara khud himmat na kar pata tumhare itne kareeb aane ki, par tumhare gusse ki wajah se ye bhi ho gaya. Bas hun isi tarah, dhire dhire ise bol bhi pau, ki main Jassi se nai tujhse hi pyar karda han. (smiles and kisses on her forehead) Pagal kudi!”

Ab Ridayjeet bhi use aise hi pakade so jata hai.

Agle din Ridayjeet uthta hai aur Mann ko sote hue dekh raha hai. Use purane din yaad aa rahe hain. Wo muskura raha hai. Tabhi wo dekhta hai ki Mann shayad jagne wali hai. Wo aankhen band karke sone ka natak karta hai. Mann jaag gayi hai. Wo Ridayjeet ko sote hue dekhti hai aur smile karti hai. Fir dhire se bolti hai, “Sote me kitne cute lagte hain.”

Tabhi, Ridayjeet apni aankhein khol leta hai aur bolta hai, “Aur jaagte me?”

Manpreet: (hairan hote hue) Aap jaag rahe hain?

Ridayjeet: (smiling) Kyun nahi jagna chahiye tha?

Manpreet Ridayjeet se thoda dur hone ki koshish karti hai, lekin Riday ne raat ki tarah abhi bhi use pakada hua hai.

Ridayjeet: Waise ik gal dasso, tuhanu raat vich ki hoya si? Itna gussa. Haye Rabba! Main tan darr hi giya si.

Manpreet Ridayjeet ko muh banate hue dekhti hai. Ridayjeet muskurata hai.

Ridayjeet: Ki hoya si bataogi hun?

Manpreet: Kuch nai, bas ek bura sapna si.

Ridayjeet: Bure sapne ki wajah se mujhpe gussa kyun kia?

Manpreet kuch ni bolti.

Ridayjeet: Wo tan main raat me hi samajh gaya si ki sapne vich main aaya hunga, par mere naal hor kon si ye bata do.

Manpreet: Koi nai.

Ridayjeet: Main guess karaan?

Manpreet: Nai.

Ridayjeet: Riddhi lad rahi si mere naal?

Manpreet: Nai!

Ridayjeet: Te kon lad riha si?

Manpreet: Koi lad nai raha si.

Ridayjeet: Te ki kar riha si?

Manpreet: Aapko kyun janna hai? Maine ni batana.

Ridayjeet: Na batao main guess kar leta hu. Tum thi? Tumse lad riha si main?

Manpreet: (thodi tez awaz me) Naiiii.

Ridayjeet: Lad nai riha si, te?

Manpreet: Te ki?

Ridayjeet: Ki tuhadde close aa riha si?

Manpreet: Aap chup rahiye na.

Ridayjeet: Han! Yehi hai. Hun te pata lag giya.

Manpreet: (irritated) Aisa nai hai.

Ridayjeet: Okay! To agar main tuhadde kareeb aaya to tumhe gussa aa riha hoga na sapne vich.

Manpreet: Mainu gussa kyun aavega agar aap mere…..

Mann bolte bolte ruk jati hai.

Ridayjeet: (dhire se) Tooo… Gusssaaa… Nai avega? Then?

Manpreet: Then nothing.

Ridayjeet: (smiling) Okay! Hune check kar lende hain wo tan.

Manpreet: Ki matlab?

Jitne me Mann bolti hai utne me Riday uske kafi nazdeek aa chuka hota hai. Dono ke chehre bhot kareeb hain.

Manpreet: Ki kar rahe ho aap?

Ridayjeet: (Mann ko apne aur pass kheenchte hue) Check kar raha hu, gussa aata hai ya nai.

Manpreet: Maan jaiye. Ye majak ka time nai hai.

Ridayjeet: Chup!

Ridayjeet Manpreet ke hothon par ungali rakh deta hai aur Manpreet ko cuddle kar leta hai. Fark bas itna hai ki pehle dono apni aankhein band kar lia karte the par aaj dono ki aankhein khuli hui hain aur dono ek dusre ko dekh rahe hain.

Manpreet: (Dhire se) Chhaddo mainu.

Ridayjeet: (dhire se) Kyun? Tainu kahin jana hai ki?

Manpreet: Nai! Lekin…..

Ridayjeet: (fir se uske hoth par ungali rakhte hue) Bola na chup…. Chup karke leti raho.

Mann chup ho jati hai. Ridayjeet Mann ki aankhon me dekh raha hai.

Ridayjeet: Hun, akkhan band karo apni.

Manpreet: Kyun?

Ridayjeet: Aaj kal sawal bhot karne lagi ho. Believe nahi raha hai mujhpe?

Manpreet Riday ki ye baat sunke apni aankhe band kar leti hai. Ridayjeet Manpreet ka face apne seene me chupa leta hai aur dhire se uske sir par baalon pe kiss karta hai, jisse use pata na chale. Manpreet bhi jo ab tak kal raat ke sapne ki wajah se Riday se dur ja rahi thi, use zor se pakad leti hai. Wo bolna chahti hai Ridayjeet se ki use kabhi chhod ke na jaye wo, par wo chup hai.

Dono chup hain. Na Ridayjeet Mann se apne dil ki baat keh pa raha hai aur na Mann Riday se apne dil ki baat keh pa rahi hai. Kya ye dono isi tarah kabhi apni dil ki baat nahi bol paenge aur in dono ke beech Jassi aa jaegi? Ye sab janne ke lie hum next episode me milte hain. Tab tak…. Shubh ratri, Shabba khair, Sayonara…. Keep enjoying your life and keep feeling the love…<3
