"Bahaiya, cheeni kahan rakhi hai?" Naina asked Ramdhari as she stirred the flour in the pan.

While Nanaji and all others were engrossed in watching a movie on the VCR, Naina took the opportunity and sneaked out of Sameer's room to make Nanaji's favourite sweet dish 'Halwa'Sameer had once told her that how badly Nanaji missed Nani's handmade halwa. Naina's eyes watered as her mind drifted back to the conversation Nanaji and she had shared few minutes before. She had to cheer him up and she was sure that halwa would certainly do wonders.

"Jaldi bataiye na kahan rakhi hai nahi to sab kharab ho jaega" , getting no reply from Ramdhari, Naina turned around to look for him when she bumped into Sameer. If she had not taken the support of his shoulder , she would have fallen down certainly.

"Sameer, tum kab aaye? Mai vo nanaji aur baki sabke liye halwa bana rahi thi," Naina fumbled with her words as the close proximity increased her heartbeat and brought back those strange, new feelings from the other night Sameer had come to see her.

"Mai to bas dekhne aya tha ki tum fir se kahan gayab ho gayi. Lekin jab yaha aya to bas dekhta hi reh gaya", Sameer replied lovingly.

Naina looked at him with questioning eyes unable to understand his words. Realising that she was still holding on to his shoulder, Naina tried to take her hands off but her attempt was failed by Sameer who took one more step forward and now stood dangerously close to her.

"Pata hai Nainu, mai hamesha sochta tha ki jab tum shaadi ke baad ghar aaogi, to hamari duniya kaisi hogi? Abhi jab tum kitchen me kaam karte hue dekha na to mujhe samajh aya ki shadi ke bad ka hamara safar to mere sapno se bhi kahin jyada accha hoga. Khana banate banate tumhari chudiyo ki ye khankhan, ye kitchen se aati bheeni bheeni mehak aur tumhara itni asaani se mere ghar me dhal jana mujhe kitna sukoon dega iska ehsaas mujhe aaj hua. Vaise to mai sochta tha ki har kaam me tumhari madad karunga lekin agar tum khana banate waqt bhi itni khoobsoorat lagogi to mujhe to tumhe dekhne se hi fursat nahi milegi na", Sameer cupped her face gently trying not to intimidate her by the sudden closeness.

His touch sent shivers down her spine. She felt weak in her knees and  feared  that she would collpase anytime . Her heartbeat was going haywires and she had no control on it.  Unable to understand what was happening to her Naina whispered " Sameer, hato na please, halwa kharab ho jaega".

Hearing her innocent reply, Sameer smiled and turned off the knob behind her, "Lo ab nahi kharab hoga tumhara halwa. Mai yaha tumse hamare future ki baat kar raha hun aur tumhe halwe ki padi hai. Not done, Naina".

"Han to usme kya hai, khana to mai banaungi hi shadi ke bad. Tumne isme kya naya socha? Aur kitchen me kaam karte hue na koi khoobsoorat nahi lagta, tum to kuch bhi bolte ho", Naina said and tried to run away from him but this time Sameer was too quick to let her go. He put her arms on either side of the kitchen slab thus caging her virtually.

"Naya bhi bohat kuch socha hai, bataun kya?", Sameer whispered in her left ear making her whole body tremble.

"Aise mat karo na," Naina pleaded. That tone brought Sameer out of his reverie and he realised that he had gone way too far. He mentally cursed himself for losing his control. He had promised himself that he would not do anything that would make Naina uncomfortable but the moment he saw his dream of their married life unfolding in front of his eyes, he forgot everything else. All he wanted was to take her in his arms. But he realised soon that he needed to wait for the right time. He took a step back, pointed towards the cupbopard on the right hand side "Cheeni vahan padi hai, jaldi se halwa bana lo, fir saath mil ke khaenge. Mai jata hun han movie dekhne."

Naina felt bad at Sameer's instant change of stance. Her mind fille dup with some unwanted conclusions . Did Sameer get angry when she asked him to leave? Otherwise why would he go upstairs all of a sudden? What did he want to tell her? He must have felt bad when she refused to listen to him. Yes, she asked him to leave because she was unable to figure out what was happening to her. His proximity caused her jitters, yet she felt comfortable. The way he looked at her made her legs tremble, yet she wanted him to keep looking at her. She asked him to go away but actually she wanted him to hold her. She couldn't understand any of the feelings she was going through at that moment. She wanted answers and had nobody to turn to. Should she ask Sameer? She felt burdened by so many thoughts.  Unable to find any answers on her own, she calmed herself down, decided to cajole him if he were angry at her and went back to preparing the halwa.


The fragrance from the kitchen had by now reached everyone's nostrils and they were desperately waiting for the halwa to reach them soon. Preeti helped Naina in serving the dish. "Naina beta, iski kya zarurat thi, isse acha tum bhi yahi baith ke movie dekhti araam se. Ramdhari bana deta khane ke liye kuch", Nanaji said as Naina offered him a bowl.

"Nanu, mera man tha maine islie banaya. Aur Ramdhari  bhaiya ke haath ka to aap log har roz khate ho na. Aaj meri bari. Aap bas ye batao ki halwa kaisa laga aapko?" Naina asked .

"Are bhabhi agar aisa hi khana har roz banaogi na to hum to kehte hain tum aur Sameer jaldi se shaadi kar lo, maza hi aagaya. Kya jadoo hai apke haatho me, Pandit exclaimed.

"Accha tum to aise keh re ho jaise inki shadi ke bad Naina har roz tum logon ko khana bana ke khilaegi. Aisa kuch nahi hoga, samjhe? Meri behan ko aur bhi bohat kaam hain", Preeti teased Pandit.

"O o o bhabhi ki behan, ye devar bhabhi ka mamla hai, tum isse dur raho. hum to har roz yahi khana khaenge. Kyu bhabhi?  Munna chipped in as Naina looked at them in amusement wondering whose side to take?

Before Naina could reply, Nanaji spoke up, " Pareshan mat karo use tum sab. Chupchap halwa khao. Naina beta, bohat accha bana hai, Sameer ki nani ke hath ke bane khane ki yaad aagyi. Thankyou, beta. Aaj tum dono bacchiyan ghar aayi ho to ye makan fir se ghar lag raha hai. Sach me bohat accha laga aaj". Naina smiled at him in return and looked at Sameer with anticipation. While she looked forward to his appreciation, he ate quitely, relishing the halwa.  Not getting any response from him, she ended up blurting out " Sameer, halwa kaisa bana hai?" taking everyone by surprise.

"Kya jijaji, aapse ye umeed nahi thi. Kitni der se intezar kar rahi hai vo sun ne ke liye aur aap ho ki dhyan hi nahi de rahe", Preeti sighed in diasppointment. Naina's sudden question and too many pairs of eyes focused on him made him conscious. "Are itna accha bana hai tabhi to bas khae ja raha hun, bolne ke liye time nahi hai. Aur vaise bhi meri Naina kuch banae aur vo accha na bane, aisa ho sakta hai kya?" His reply was followed by his wide grin which made Naina blush and gave others a chance to tease them even more.

After spending some more time in Sameer's house, Naina and Preeti took Nanu's permission to leave. Nanu blessed them both and asked them to visit him whenever they got some time. Naina wanted to talk to Sameer but she had  to return home as it was getting late. The way he smiled praising the halwa, she knew he was not angry at her so she decided to talk to him once they return to delhi. As Naina bade a final  bye to Munna, Pandit and Sameer, she looked at his house with happiness filled eyes and thought "Nanu, Sameer aur mera pyara sa ghar".


August 1993

After spending two months of their vacation in Ahmedabad stealing chances to meet each other, Naina and Sameer were back to Delhi. While chachaji had dropped off Naina to her hostel, Sameer had gone to her mother's house. As Naina unpacked her bags, she was reminded of the close moment they had share in the kitchen and blushed hard . This was not the first time she was thinking of it. The moment had been playing in her mind ever since, not leaving her even for a second. 

"Naina, tu aagayi?", Shefali entered the room and hugged her tightly.

"Aap kaise ho?" Naina returned the hug.

"Mai to theek hun, par tere andaaz kuch badle badle lag rahe hain' akele baithe baithe sharma rahi hai, chakkar kya hai?" Shefali asked teasingly.

"Kuch bhi mat bolo aap, mai kahan sharma rahi thi?" Naina spoke in her defence.

"O madam, chehra dekh apna, tamatar ki tarah laal ho rakha hai, Sameer ke bare me soch rahi thi na, bol bol", Shefali nudged her shoulder.

Naina gave up and replied, " Haan usi ke bare me soch rahi thi". Suddenly she jumped up in excitement and exclaimed " Shefali di, mujhe aapse kuch puchna hai."

"Haan puch na par itna uchal kyu rahi hai"? Shefali asked as she settled herslef on her bed.

"Nahi, pehle aap promise karo aap mujh par hasoge nahi aur mujhe sahi sahi bataoge sab", Naina put her hand forward asking for a promise.

"Batao, kahan mai Sameer ki baatein puchna chahti thi aur kahan ye mujhse promise promise khilwa rahi hai. Theek hai baba nahi hasungi, pucho ab", Shefali put her hand over hers sealing the promise.

"Are Sameer ki hi to baat hai. Kuch dino se na jab bhi vo mujhe dekhta hai mujhe bohat ajeeb lagta hai. Matlab accha bhi lagta hai aur ajeeb bhi, mujhe kuch samajh nahi aa raha ", Naina finished her sentence and saw Shefali trying to supress her laughter. "Aapne promise kiya tha ki aap nahi hasoge,  mujhe nahi puchna aapse kuch bhi."

"Are are are mai kahan hasi. Gussa kyu ho rahi hai?" Shefali asked and then continued teasing her  "Sirf uske dekhne se accha lagta hai ya uske kareeb aane se?"

Shefali's remark shocked Naina and she wondered how did she figure that out, " Han matlab dono chizo se."

"Oho matlab Maheshwari ji ke hormones finally jaag gaye. Shukar hai, nahi to mujhe to laga tha bechara ladka tere saath rahega to kya hi hoga uska" Shefali chuckled.

"Haw aap mera mazaak uda rahe ho aur kis bat ka bechara ladka hai vo. Aap jyada uski side mat liya karo" Naina replied not understanding Shefali's remark.

"Theek hai tu vo sab chodh aur ye bata, kya kiya Sameer ne?" Shefali teased her further.

Still unable to see through her words, Naina told her everything and also the fact that Sameer might be angry with her. While Naina hoped to get her answers, Shefali's eyes popped out in shock "Naina, vo tujhe hug karna chahta tha aur shayad kiss bhi, aur tune use bhaga diya? Naaraz hona to banta hai"

It was now Naina's turn to get shocked. "Hug??? Kiss??? Chi aisa kyu karna tha use?" Naina asked in disbelief.

Shefali looked at her roommate in admiration. Naina was the most innocent girl she had ever met. Her simplicity and naivety were her biggest strengths. She often wondered that how this girl was so different from the rest of girls of her age. No matter, how many times she teased Naina regarding Sameer, she also held a deep sense of respect for Sameer for never forcing his wishes on her. That day, Shefali decided that it is time Naina should know certain things. She held Naina's hand and said " Dekh Naina, agar Sameer chahta hai ki vo tujhe hug kare  to isme kuch galat nahi hai. Agar Sameer ki jagah koi aur ladka hota to shayad mai tujhe ye sab kabhi nahi bolti par maine dekha hai tum dono ka ek dusre ke liye pyar. Aur usi pyaar ko zaahir karne ka to tareeka hai ye.  Aur tujhe Sameer ke paas aane par ajeeb islie lagta hai kyunki ye sab tere liye bohat naya hai. Kabhi kabhi apne pyaar ko is tarah se express bhi karna chahie. Use bhi accha lagega aur tujhe bhi."

"Par mujhe to uske sath hi rehna accha lagta hai na, fir is sabki kya zarurat"? Naina asked innocently.

"Are buddhu mai tujhe ye thodi bol rahi ki ja Sameer ke paas abhi aur use gale laga le. Mai to bas ye bol rahi hun ki agar tujhe comfortable lage to isme koi burai nahi hai balki in choti choti chizo se  to pyaar aur badhta hai" samjhi? Shefali asked and Naina nodded in return not knowing what to do next. "Vaise mai mazaak kar rahi thi, Sameer tujhse naaraz nahi hoga, isilie tu jyada mat soch aur so ja. Subah class bhi jana hoga na" Still not satisfied, Naina laid down on her bed and dozed off.


"Sameer, tum mujhse naaraz ho? " Naina asked for the umpteenth time as they sat beneath their favorite tree.

"Naina, kitni der se yahi sawal puch rahi ho, mai kyu gussa hounga tumse. Kay ho gaya hai tumhe?" Sameer replied.

"Agar naaraz nahi ho to us din kitchen se ekdum bhaag ke upar kyu chale gaye the? Aur Delhi vaaps ane ke itne din baad tum mere sath yaha aaye ho. Naaraz nahi hote to pehle ki tarah har roz hum class ke baad time kyu nahi spend karte saath me? Bolo bolo," Naina prodded him.

"Nainu, bataya to tha mummy aur dadi sheher se bahar gaye hue hain to mujhe class khatam hote hi jana padta hai varna Deepika akeli reh jati hai ghar me. Tum to itni samajhdar ho, fir achanak se kya ho gaya hai tumhe?" Sameer replied and paused midway "Ek second, kitchen? Mai movie dekhne gaya tha vaaps, isme naarazgi ki baat kahan se ayi?"

"Naarazgi islie kyunki tumko us din mujhe hug karna tha aur shaayd kiss bhi lekin maine tumhe jane ke liye keh diya. Is sab baat pe naaraz hona to banta hi hai" Naina repeated Shefali's exact words and then cursed herself for not thinking before speaking up. She realised that she needed to mend this habit of hers.

Sameer's jaw dropped on hearing Naina's reply. Unable to find words, he asked her "Ye sab khyal tumhare dimag me kaise aya?"

"Mujhe Shefali didi ne bataya. Unhe sab pata hota hai" Naina replied meekly.

Sameer looked at her in awee,"Bas tumhari inhi baaton ke kaaran tumse din b din aur pyaar hota ja raha hai. Itni pyaari kyu ho tum?"

"Tum aur Shefali didi dono ek jaise ho. Sawal kuch pucho aur jawab kuch aur aata hai", Naina replied getting irritated. "Mai ja rahi hun", Naina tried to get up but Sameer held her hand. "Acha suno, haan ye sach hai ki mujhe us din bohat man kar raha tha ki mai tumhe apni baahon me bhar lun. Kya karta tumpe pyaar hi itna aaraha tha, mai khud ko rok hi nahi paya. Lekin fir mujhe laga ke maina achanak se tumhe uncomfortable kar diya hai islie mai vaha se aagya." Sameer looked into her eyes and continued "Naina, mai kabhi aisa kuch nahi karunga jo tumhe accha na lage.Tum mujhse pyaar karti ho , iska matlab ye nahi ki mai jaisa chahu tum vaisa hi karo. Mujhe pata hai ye sab tumhare liye bohat naya hai aur shayad ajeeb bhi. Isilie jab tak tumhe nahi lagta ki hume hamre rishte me ek kadam aur aage badhna chahie, tab tak meri taraf kabhi aisa kuch nahi hoga jisse tumhe pareshani ho. Aur ye  baat hamesha yaad rakhna ki mai apni Naina se kabhi bhi naaraz ho hi nahi sakta, aisi baaton pe to bilkul nahi. Ye apna dimaag tum sirf padhai me hi lagaya karo, in sab baaton me nahi, in mamlon me to tum topper hone se rahi" Sameer tried to lighten up the situation as he saw Naina's eyes tearing up.

"Naina, barish shuru ho rahi hai, chalo chalen, kahin aur ja ke baat karenge." Sameer got up and signalled her to do the same as he saw the weather turning rough.  He walked forward, Naina held his arm stopping him from going any further. "Naina, mausam kharab ho sakta hai aur chalo na" Sameer tried to drill some sense into her. Naina ignored his plea, smiled a little, came forward and stood facing him. She gently put her head on his chest and threw her arms around him. Sameer was taken back by surprise as Naina tightened her hold around him. When he still didn't reciprocate, Naina took his hands and encircled them around her waist. Sameer who was till now thinking that he was hallucnating, came back to his senses and hugged her tighter.  While Sameer realised that being this close to her was much better in reality than his dreams, Naina realised why she didn't want sameer to leave that day. She felt at peace in his arms, his arms were her abode. Both stood there for long, lost in each other's love with the rain adding it's special effect to their moment of love.
