JAISALMER - 20th JANUARY
"Pahunch gayi tu?"
"Haan lekin filhal baithi hoon ek tent mein kafi ajeeb jagah hai."
"Ajeeb kyun? Senior Officer se nahi mili?"
"Kahan yaar..pata hai peechle der gante se baithi hoon pata nahi kab aayenge woh. Waise bhi kaafi thand hai yahan upar se kaafi andhera bhi hai bahar."
"Wow!! Lieutenant Ahluwalia itni darpok kabse ban bayi?"
"Mazak mat kar Aalekh..ek to itni der se baithi hoon upar se jisse milne aayi hoon unka to koi ata pata bhi nahi hai."
It had been quite a hot and dusty ride from Ambala to Jaisalmer through the sand dunes of the Great Indian Desert. Jaisalmer, nicknamed "The Golden City", is a town in the Indian state of Rajasthan. It is located 575 kilometres (357 miles) west from the state capital Jaipur. It was once known as Jaisalmer state. The town stands on a ridge of yellowish sandstone, crowned by a fort, which contains the palace and several ornate Jain temples. Many of the houses and temples are finely sculptured. It lies in the heart of the Thar Desert and has a population of about 78,000. It is the administrative headquarters of Jaisalmer District. For Naina , this was a turning point in her 24 years of turbulent life. 'Life', Naina thought ruefully had never been quite a friend of hers. It had always kept her at a distance and had mocked at her or may be had had a good laugh at her misery and unfruitful persuasions in making an idyllic life. No her life was never like this initially. She had always wanted to spend her life like any other girl of her age..reading, dreaming about her prince charming, going out with friends, having lots and lots of fun.. But the sudden death of her brother and the subsequent events that followed one after the other were enough to drive anybody crazy.
"Kitni baar mujhe aisa laga ki bhaiya ko begunaah sabit karte karte khud kahin khonkli hoti ja rahi thi. Lekin zindagi bhi ajeeb imtehaan leti rehti hai humse. Woh hawa ke jhonke ki tarah aaya aur main ek sukhe huye patte ki tarah uddti chali gayi us hawa mein.. kya woh sirf mera khwaab tha? Sirf ek wahem? Ya phir koi haqeeqat kabhi kabhi khud hairaan reh jaati hoon mai. Lekin sach ho ya juth jo DO PAL humne saath bitaye the woh meri iss zindagi ke liye kafi hai.
"Oye kahan kho gayi??"
"K-Kahun nahi aur..aur tu bata kaisa hai tu?"
"USING CELL PHONES WITHOUT PERMISSION IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED INSIDE THE TENT."
The phone from Naina's hand fell with a crashing sound as she whirled round to face the thick deep voice behind her. She couldn't believe her own eyes. If it weren't for the arm of the chair she was holding, she would have surely fallen down. Naina couldn't find her voice to answer the question that was directed towards her. She continued to stare at the person with a blank expression on her otherwise pretty face. The stranger seemed to be unperturbed, "I believe you are the famous Lieutenant Naina Singh Ahluwalia ' the best cadet of KMA! But I am quite shocked to see that you seem to lack the basic sense of courtesy of wishing your seniors in front of you?? Lt. are you okay? If not then you may go back home, we don't want soldiers who just stand like a zombie." The man barked at her but Naina was still in a trance.
"Aap..?" Naina was suddenly brought back to the harsh reality of the present moment.
"Lt. Naina Singh Ahluwalia reporting Sir."
"Major Rajveer Singh Shekhawat." Answered the man.
"I would like to make one thing very clear, I don't tolerate such naive attitude and unresponsive person under my command. The day I find you are not suitable for the camp.......'"
"I will walk away myself and spare you the trouble. I promise you'.Sir." Naina interrupted.
"You may go now.. report sharp at 5 AM in the morning over the field behind the camp."
As soon as Raj left the tent for some work of his own, Naina slopped down on the floor and tried in vain to get a grip over the shock, the astonishment that was making her almost dizzy. "Jis din ke liye, jis waqt ke liye itne dinon se dua kar rahi this, aaj woh lamha mere saamne hai lekin kitna ajeeb lag hai mujhe .. lagta hai bahut kuch badal gaya hai.Lekin kya?? Kyun??"
" Kyun aap ne mujhe pehchaan se inkaar kiya? Kya aap sab kuch bhool gaye..woh saare pal jo humne ek doosre ke khayalon me bitaye the aap zinda ho..theek ho..kya itna bhi nahi bata sakte the?? Kya itna bhi nahi haq tha mera? Kyun kar rahe hai aap aisa mere saath iska jawab mujhe chahiye..aaj aur abhi." She put away the photograph and stormed out of the tent in search of her answers from the man himself.
At the first sight of her all Raj wanted to do was to run up to her and hold her tightly in his embrace and never let her go. But that's in his dream and this was reality. He has to send her away at any cost and he was ready to pay any price for it.
"Tum yahan? Kya kar rahi thi? Chupke Chupke aapne senior officer ki baatein sun rahi thi? Were you spying?? Kya aap janti hai iss gunah ke liye mai aapko iss camp se bahar phenk sakta hoon?"
"Kyun??? Kyun kar rahe hai aap yeh sab??"
"Kya kar raha hoon?"
"Aapko batane ki zaroorat hai? Main yeh jaanna chahti hoon ki aap mujhe na pehchaan ne ka dhong kyun kar rahe hai? Kya aapko lagta hai ki mai yeh sab kuch itni aasaani se maan lungi? Kya aap yeh kehna chahte hai ki aap kabhi KMA mein the hi nahi?"
"Mai kuch nahi kehna chahta aapse. You are in no position to ask me anything. I don't owe any explanation to you Miss Ahluwalia. Aapke liye bas itna jaan lena ki kaafi hai ki maine aapni zindagi ke kitaab se kuch panne phad kar phenk diya hai jise dobara padhne ka na mujhe koi shaukh hai aur na hi waqt."
" Ho sakta hai aap ke liye zindagi bas ek kitaab hai jise jab chaha padha aur jab chaha phenk diya lekin mere liye zindagi ek kitab nahi balki ek uljhan hai jise mai har haal mein suljhaungi aap chahe ya na chahe. And I am pretty sure ki aapko partial Amnesia to hai nahi aur aap ko yeh yaad bhi hoga ki agar Naina kuch thaan leti hai who zaroor karti hai..aur yeh mera aapse waada hai ki mai yeh jaan kar rahungi ki aap mujhse kya aur kyun chupa rahe hai." She stomped off to her tent as Raj tried to stop her only to wish otherwise.
" Main tumhe jaanta hoon Naina isiliye tumhe in sab se dur rakhna chahta hoon, bahut kuch badal gaya hai humare bich , humari zindagi mein but something that hasn't changed is you Naina, you are still the same impulsive and irrational Naina , who would go to any extent to get her job done and wouldn't think of the later consequences you are still the same girl, I fell in love with and am still in love with and will be for the rest of the eternity. I love you."
