Guroor hai kitna usse apni Mohabbat par..
Jhalla woh thaira andha Anpad;
Gul-e-Mohabbat woh hi jo Suraj ki Tapish main khil jaaye…
Zaat-e-Mohabbat woh hi jo Suroor main Guroor ko fanaa kar jaaye.
Zindagi ki raah main uski baghbaein gulshan bechaaya
woh toh Jhalli thairi akeli tanhaa;
Chubtey hue Intezar main uske
kya suna hai kissi ne ke chubtey bhi hain makhmal-i- kaante?
Dikhayi diye na kabhi kissi ko uske gham
Ab kehta hai Woh ke humesha se they bas sirf tum aur hum.
Apnoun se parayi hui woh,
tere suroor main deewani thi woh,
Shouhrat ki aagaz main woh pali-badi hui
Shohoor na tha tujhe ke bas usko bebasi aur tanhayi ki khalish thi.
Tu ne usko apni Shaan samjha..
Usne tujhko apna Maan samjha
Tu ne daulat ki bas beejh boye
Usne apni khoyi Mohabbat ke Geet roye…
Guroor hai kitna usse apni Mohabbat par..
Shayad pyaar ki inteha hii dono ke liye Tanhai bann gayi..
Jii tu rahe the vo ek dusre ke liye hai hii..
Bas raasto nai dhoka de diya..
Ishq nai kab kiskio abaad kiya hai…
Jab bhi kiya hai bas barbbad kiya hai !!!!
Just then they heard Geet screaming at the nurse while Rano tried convincing her that Maan is not in the room & he won’t see her like this. Geet refused to believe it. Or let’s say didn’t want to. She didn’t want her Maan to leave her like this.
He could never. She knows deep down how much Maan loves her. It was just that in a weak moment she made a mistake of indulging in drugs. If she missed him, of course he missed her too. He too suffered as much she did. He didn’t have the excuse of loneliness. Damn it he didn’t have time even to breathe.
He stood rooted. Everyone seemed helpless at this moment. By now Dev had found out what was going. Tears flooded his eyes when he explained it all to Maan. He hated to be the carrier of this news. There was no reaction from Maan. The realization sunk in deep& deeper. He fluttered his lashes stopping the tears that burned his eyes. He walked back into the room against everyone’s protest.
When did he ever listen to anyone when it came to them? He always did what he felt was right. If his decisions were wrong in past, he might as well pay for it. More than anything he will fix it.
He pushed open the door. She screamed yet again assuming that it was the nurse. Her voice got trapped in her throat when she saw it was Maan. She tried to hide herself but couldn’t help to fall for the depth of plea in his eyes. He cupped her face; she tried to look away.
She looked away, “wo main”
He pulled her closer wanting her to look into his eyes
She so didn’t want to see anything but love in those eyes
He insisted, pulling her still closer. Her eyes welled when they met his. She was amazed to see only love. He didn’t flinch. He didn’t look away. He looked at her like he admired her. He nodded
Tears poured from his eyes
He slowly kissed her forehead .. I love you
& kissed her eyes one after the other..
& took her lips softly.. I love you a lot jaan. Please don’t leave me. I can’t live without you!
She cried more with his every word.
Lekin main.. main.. wo..
She hid herself in his arms “nahi main ..”
He crushed her in his arms. Realizing how petite she had become. He could feel her bones everywhere. His heart refused to take any more. He still just held on to her; holding her, reassuring her. He was there, he will be there.
He didn’t let any of it affect him. He scooped her in his arms & laid her on the bed. No one said anything. None approved his closeness to her. As if he wanted anyone’s permission! Even the doctor looked away.
It was a tough fight to get the doctor to tell him anything. But he was persistent. He learned how deeply she was into it. How difficult it was going to be, the whole process of healing. She had to be in rehab; which he didn’t want but had no choice. She had to flush the drug out of her system. It was a painful process to see her suffer. He cried at his failure. He didn’t have the guts to look back into mama-papa’s face ever.
Their love failed.
It was always easy to go against parents wish & be together but not always will you be happy.
That day when he had walked out of that fancy restaurant holding Geet’s hand, he had promised himself to give her all the happiness. Never will he let her cry like that night. He had hated Papaji for making her cry to an extent that her eyes were swollen. He had wondered for days how could a father let his own daughter cry like that & hell what has he done to her? He has made her life worse. His guroor was broken.. his confidence shattered.
He did everything he could. He didn’t fight to get her back from Handas. The first week in rehab was painful. Maan & Rano stayed with her there in the rehab. They got her back home from rehab.
Its 2 months now Geet was fully out of drugs. It was a torturous 2 months.
Handas had seen a different Maan in these months. He never spoke anything to anyone. He came early in the morning before going to office. He woke her & had breakfast & coffee with her. He went through her plan of the day. Promised her a lunch date & did take her out. He tried his best to come back early home that was not earlier than 6 sometimes 7. He made dinner, fooled around, took her for movies. The routine was set. He would leave after she dozed off.
In between she had a couple of attacks. He left everything & was there by her side. After 2 months passed the doctor was really impressed with Geet’s recovery. It was time to slowly take her off any medication.
Geet reluctantly asked the doctor how the baby was.
Doctor looked at Maan.
He nodded & let her explain.
The doctor explained that she was never pregnant to start with. Geet looked at Maan not able to understand.
Dr – tum bahut week thi, that’s why you missed your dates.
Geet was a bit taken aback. Why had no one told her about it?
Maan just walked out
The doctor reassured her, it was for her betterment that they kept it from her.
Later at Khurana Mansion, Pooja asked Maan why he was not getting Geet back home.
Maan didn’t say anything.
Next day morning Maan woke up only to be held down by a soft pair of arms around his waist. He turned around in delight to see his jaan cuddle into him. He drank in the beauty silently. They had no clue when their lips sought themselves & lost in passion. It was not long before their barriers were shed & they were one again.
He panted & tears flooded his eyes for the first time in several months. He cried burying his face in her hair. He hit the bed in his helplessness. He wrapped the robe around himself & walked towards the long window. He stood facing away from her. His eyes were focused at something far away.
She wrapped the sheet around herself & hugged him from behind.
Naraz ho mujh se
He leaned back – haan
Sorry she said holding her tears
He snapped at once – you broke my guroor Geet
She dipped her head
You broke me.. you know, tum hi mera guroor ho.
All this was just for you.
I know, Geet cried silently
Maan – maana ki main… I lost myself in work, tum tho mujhe rok sakti thi
I could have never denied you.
Geet it would have been easy for me to lose to that model in the hotel that day. I was drunk & she literally threw herself at me & trust me, I was at an all time low missing you. But I could only think of u.
& I know for matter of fact that you will forgive me even then. We were not bound by all those things.
Geet went silent.
Maan – we decided to come together for our love
My happiness is you. you know that. I was showering you with gifts because I didn’t know how to be there for you when I had so much on my plate
I know you understand.. I know you understood. I know it was just an unfortunate thing happened
She nodded silently for everything
All you had to do was come to me, tell me
Maybe I am busy, maybe I am losing some damn business but jaan nothing is more important than us
yeah I may react at that time differently
she left out a little laugh
he kissed her at once how will I take care of you jaan?
I am so scared
He confessed openly. He could manage a damn empire but was not sure if he could take care of her.
& He felt the same guroor may be even more proud after a year during a Diwali celebration when he saw Papaji.
How Papajis eyes were seeing Geet & the little doll in her arms. How Papaji lovingly took the baby in his hands. How happy they all seemed. He felt blessed, he could be the one who made them all laugh, smile …
