Again my brain seems to work overtime these past 2 days.. Here is an OS for you all to comment and criticise and praise if maybe..Thanks for your patient reading..
The mandap was decorated in resplendent manner.. Flowers of various hues and sizes adorned the walls and the stage..The air was filled with warmth and heady fragrance of a mix of flowers and the perfumes of all kinds..
The shehnai music vaadhan along with traditional music of instrumental ensemble, seemed to waft through the air adding a splendid touch to the atmosphere..
The invitees, some seated and some standing were all eyes and ears, wanting to miss none of the action..The air seemed to be impregnated with eager anticipation of the event about to happen..
His face calm and serene, betraying none of the turmoil inside..
He was waiting for his bride to join him and the function to get over quickly..
Niharika and Mamaji seemed to burst out with their happiness and their schemes coming true..Their faces glee with satisfaction..
Natasha and Karthik stood mute spectators, their faces impassive..Ishika was just a wallflower..
Dadi was slumped on the seattee placed at one corner hardly bothering about the rituals and actions going on the stage..
It seemed that the accident he had met with, completely blanked out 2 years of his life..He remembered all that happened before..But these 2 years was simply erased out of his brain..
Niharika assured him nothing had happened and that he was safe and sound.. It was just another road accident and he was lucky to have escaped unscathed..
Try as might, he couldnt recollect how this accident happened and why did he drive the car in such a rash and fast manner..It seemed everything was white and not even a faint scar was seen, when he excercised his grey matter..
He saw her, the woman he was supposed to marry..
A young woman slightly heavy set, with an air of indifference about her..
Her eyes seemed dull and life less and she hardly spoke a word to him. Her impression was one of forced agreement..Always his mom was with her and he could hardly get a word in private..It seemed her parents were somewhere and weren't keen on attending this function..
Giving in to exasperation he resigned himself to marry this mystery woman..Well,he had to settle someday; let it be now, he thought..
The sharp ringing of the bell rudely awoke his reverie to the present..He gathered his wits and looked forward for the wedding..
Niharika was smiling. Her smile belying the hatred and cunningness inside..
She had thrown out all Priya's belongings and wiped away even the slightest trace of her presence from the Kapoor mansion..With Sid absconding, she took an Iron hand bringing everyone under her control.
Ayesha was tough to handle..
Niharika's prestige, money and the Kapoor name was all safeguarded and will never be tarnished again..
The pandit's incessant chants of the mantras brought her back to the present..Soon Ayesha will wed Ram and Priya will become a history..
Ram sat, doing the pooja with an anticipation and piety..
'Kanya ko bhulayiye" said the pandit..
Niharika nodded towards Ishika..
The milling crowd of the invitees and guests looked forward for the bride to make her entry.. After all they knew that Ram's second marriage was something not to be missed..
The laughter and the gaiety associated with marriage was missing here, but that was never a concern..All that mattered was Ram marrying Ayesha..
Ram sat like the Buddha..
Lost in thoughts he didn't notice the perceptible change in the atmosphere..The murmers and whispers among the crowd suddenly turned loud and clear..
"Look ! Oh look there!" someone shouted..
The sudden commotion died out. Instead there was a stunned silence..The air was heavy and the crowd seemed wait with bated breath at the sight before them..
Unbelievable eyes didn't want to miss or leave out anything.. Strained neck tried to catch each and every movement'
Niharika and mama were rooted to the spot and speechless..Dadi couldn't believe her eyes.. Nutz and karthik were shocked..
Ram slowly looked up..His eyes slightly moist from the havan's smoke and fumes, couldn't make out the hazy scene in front him..
Wiping away the tears and clearing his vision, he was totally caught offguard..
Getting up to his feet, he almost stumbled. Balancing himself, he gingerly got down from the stage..Striding purposefully forward, he beckoned at the sight in front of him..Nodding his head he opened his arms in welcome..
In walked Ayesha and Rishabh in all splendor and richness of a newly married couple..
The marriage happened!!!!!.
