PART 43

He rushed to her to hold but she jerked his hands away, “stay away from me…no… don’t come closer..”

“jaan..I…”

“No… Go away… just go…i don’t know you”.

He didn’t know what happened to her all of a sudden. She was all okay when he had met her last… did she forget him…yet again? was he going to lose her yet again? millions of questions zoomed around his mind as she screamed at everyone to just leave her alone.

 

This was so wrong. She doesn’t recognise anyone. He didn’t know what to do. She cuddled to one corner of the room, asking him and nisha to stay away. She looked scared…confused…frustrated and she wasn’t letting anyone touch her. nisha tried to get closer again and she just screamed, “No…don’t!!”

Sasha came running hearing her screams and stopped at the door seeing the sight. Maan and nisha stood a few feet away from her trying to calm her down. This was not good…not at all. She probably shouldn’t have told Geet about maan at all. She needed Geet to at least recognise her..hence called out to her softly, “Geet…”

Geet got alert hearing that voice and turned towards the voice. A wave of relief swept over her as she saw Sasha right by the door. Tears rolled down as she choked, “Sasha… I…I..”

 

Sasha ran towards her and Geet just hugged her tightly, sobbing very badly.

“i…i was scared…”

Sasha sighed…okay she was fine. She caressed her head softly, “shh..shh..its okay… everythings fine…”

Geet sobbed holding Sasha while maan just stood aghast! She recognised Sasha…then why the hell did she not recognise him or nisha? she was okay when Sasha came..then she could at least recognise them now. He mustered up all his courage and called her, “Geet…are you alright?”

She turned towards that strange voice and buried herself in Sasha’s arms, “who…who is he? I…i… don’t know him..why is he here…”

Maan was shocked to hell..she recognised Sasha but she never recognised him? what was wrong with her? what was going on? he looked at nisha who seemed equally startled with this turn of events. Sasha just held her closer and whispered in her ears, “shh.. its okay Geet. they’re family… its alright. You don’t have to be scared…”

 

“family???”, she asked meekly. She raised her head a bit and looked at the two strangers standing in front of her. she looked at them ever so curiously like seeing them for the first time!!

“yes they’re family…your family…”, Sasha smiled, trying to convince her.

Maan was just a mute spectator to the whole event. Something was not right… there was something he didn’t know about her. he knew she had issues with her neuro-motor reflexes and stuff… but not recognising certain people was just something he didn’t get. He watched her look cutely confused at him.

 

“my family? Then why don’t I remember anything?”

Before Sasha could formulate an answer, she felt something heavy in her arms. She looked down only to see her passed out. Maan and nisha rushed towards them.

“we need to rush to the doctor..”, Sasha spoke up frantically.

Without a thought, maan just lifted Geet up in his arms and rushed out towards his car. He was not going to let his jaan suffer from whatever she was suffering from and from whatever he had just witnessed. Nisha and Sasha came rushing as they headed off towards Geet’s doctor who had been treating her all this time.

 

All way through nisha was trying to get Geet back to consciousness and Sasha was in continous call with her doctor. But he was a little lost in his own thoughts. He had read and seen cases where people tend to forget memories post accident or some trauma but he had never known something like this!! He was with her and Sasha but she recognised only Sasha…why was it so?? He stopped according to Sasha’s instructions in front of the hospital. They carried her to the doctor, Mr. Richard, neurologist who was dealing with this case. He immediately checked her pulse and did some routine check up. He injected something and let her sleep. Maan just watched everything quietly, with his thoughts eating up his head.

 

Sasha sat in front of the doctor and narrated whatever had happened all these days. Maan took couldn’t hold back… he might get his answers as well.

“yes doc…she refused to recognise me or her aunt but she recognised Sasha… how could that be possible when we all have been together for some time?”

Mr. Richard looked at Geet’s reports from earlier and then at maan, “and who might you be to her?”

“well… I am an acquaintance…”, he didn’t even think before speaking out. Nisha and Sasha just kept watching them while the doctor read through her reports and turned to maan.

“Ms Geet’s case is quite complicated right now..she is not in the right frame of mind…”

“yes I know doc…but why this?”

“I had told them earlier too…not to stress her out about anything..”, he spoke pointing towards sahsa, “… I have been treating her for the past 8 months and my fears had come true as well…”

This was really making maan a little queasy. He knew there was something he didn’t know but richard’s words were scaring him now.

“doc…is something serious??”

“umm..”, Richard nodded without any hesitation, “miss Sasha didn’t tell you yet?”

“tell me what??”

 

Maan turned towards Sasha with a questioning gaze and so did nisha while sahsa just sighed in defeat, “I didn’t know it would get worse… I… I thought she’d get better soon.”

“what is it doc..please tell me honestly..”, maan was getting scared now. this uncertainty was something he hated.

“well…”, Richard took off  his specs and put it on the table, “she is suffering from a neurological disorder called Prosopagnosia!”

“wh…what is that?

The doctor sighed as he handed Geet’s reports to maan, “I wasn’t sure myself about this until recently. It was only recently that I realized she has been suffering from this disorder which is also known as Face blindness.”

Everything was all too shocking for maan, “face blindness?”

 

“yes… You must be aware she had been trough a major accident…”

“yes I do…”

” In simple terms, face blindness, is a disorder of  “face perception” where the ability to recognize faces is impaired, while other aspects of visual processing  and intellectual functioning remain intact…”

He sat shocked hearing this turn of events!! this was so not happening!!!

 

you do realize she has forgotten most of her memories right…and then she has got this acquired prosopagnosia… if she doesn’t see people continuously over a span of time, she might not recognise them the next time she meets them…”

“so you mean to say… she wouldn’t recognise me now? is there no cure to this?”

“well Mr. Khurana…she is suffering from Traumatic Brain Injury and honestly speaking there has been no cure to prosopagnosia!!!”

 

He just fell back on the chair… drained out of energy. But something struck his mind.

“tell me one thing doc…she didn’t recognise me because I was out for the weak..but why didn’t she recognise her aunt who had been staying with her for over a week now?”

Richard sighed, “its complicated! Does her aunt stay with her 24/7…like every single day thoughout?”

Nisha’s ears shot up, “umm no doctor…i live in India I visit her from time to time…”

“..and this is exactly the reason why she couldn’t relate to you but ms Sasha!”

———————————————-

 

He was completely drained out by the time he reached home. The day had been long. She went to his room and just crashed on his bed, thinking of the events of the day!! she is suffering from prosopagnosia…she doesn’t recognise people’s faces and she has to be taught how to come over it…there are no cure to this disorder because if affects hardly 2% of the people around the globe and that she might have to remain like this forver!!!

His eyes snpped open as he took out his lappy and sat by his huge window, searching for whatever the doctor told.

“traumatic brain Injury”, he typed and clicked enter. This was the toughest phase..every day is not going to be a cake walk. some days better and some worse because matters of brain are just too damn unpredictable.

 

The search engine threw up various articles on TBI and its causes and effects.

“The TBI, also known as Intercranial Injury, occurs when an external force traumaticall injures the brain and is a major cause of death and disability wordwide, especially in children and young adults…

…includes falls, vehicle accidents and violence and is dependent on sensitivity of the trauma.”

Images of him being stuck in traffic that day just flashed in his mind while his jaan lied in a pool of blood a few feet away from him…her lifeless body in hospital… her slipping into coma… her limp..her not recognising faces just made him cringe at his own thoughts. He kept on clicking links after links, reading about the causes and effects…

“…communication problems after TBI… taking turns in conversation

maintaining a topic of conversation

using an appropriate tone of voice

interpreting the subtleties of conversation (e.g., the difference between sarcasm and a serious statement)

responding to facial expressions and body language

keeping up with others in a fast-paced conversation..”

(for more details pls follow the link: http://www.asha.org/public/speech/disorders/tbi/ )

His brain felt jammed with so much intake of information. He yawned and book marked a few pages before calling it a day.

—————————————————

 

She felt a severe pain coursing in her heart…she wanted to cry out badly… but she couldn’t. She was bottled up inside. she looked around and realized she was driving a car… and then there was something and everything turned white…she didn’t know what happened but all she felt was an excruciating pain…and she didn’t know if it was her heart or her body…

 

She opened her eyes with a start, breathing heavily and looked around. It took her some time to realize that she was in her room, sleeping on her bed. She sighed and looked out of the window. It was dark and silent..may be mid of night she guessed! Her head hurt a bit as she tried to gather what had happened to her. she slowly stood up and went to the washroom and washed her face. She came out wiping when her eyes fell on her notebook kept on the table. She recalled the morning when she had seen some strangers around and then her dream. She took her pencil and opened a blank page,

“there was a car… and there was so much pain.”

Her head throbbed and she just kept her note book away and went back to sleep but she couldn’t. She had been sleeping like a log the whole day! she guessed with the silence that everyone must be asleep. She fell back on her bed and tried to recall everything that she could gather. There were faces…there were voices ringing in her head.

“he loved you…”, she felt it ringing in her ears.

“I want to remember everything… and everyone…”

 

The next morning Sasha came to wake her up and found her sitting on her bed.“good morning Geet…”

Gee smiled, “morning Sasha…”

“come on…lets get you out of bed. You need to see Chachi and Ana before they leave!”

She helped Geet stand up and forwarded her the towel and her dress. Geet stopped in line, “what do you mean leaving?”

“yeah… Chachi and Ana are going back to india today… you don’t remember? She had told you a few days back..”

“they are?”, she asked all confused.

Sasha sighed, “come on… now hurry up. They have their flight in the next 2 hours.”

 

Geet came out wearing a white skirt and a lose white top, taking baby steps and looked up at the faces in front of her. nisha stood there with a smile on her face, “good morning princess…”

Geet stood still for a while… trying to recognise that  voice as she checked nisha’s attire.. she wore a pair of jeans and a kurti which she usually did. Her brain seemed to register that image of hers and she responded immediately, “Chachi… you are leaving??”

Nisha sighed in relief..geet was okay. She recalled the doctor’s words… she would try to recognise people though their dressing style and their voices… no wonder Geet didn’t recognise her the previous day because she had decided to wear salwar kameez and let her hair down in a pony.

“yes I have to leave beta… work needs me.”

Nisha kissed her fore head while Ana hugged her, “you’re going to be fine right di?”

Geet smiled, “yes I am…sasha is here. And I am recovering. No problem at all..

“chalo you two take care and yes be careful. I will try to come as soon as possible…”

Nisha hugged both the girls and reminded them again and again to take care until sahsa reminded her of the flight. They took the cab to the airport while Geet and Sasha stayed back, not wanting to reveal Geet to the world yet.

 

Once they were gone, Sasha closed the door and got to the kitchen, “so what do you wanna have for breakfast?”

Geet was surprised hearing Sasha ask Geet about her choice. She smiled and sat by the counter, “umm…now when did that come from han?”

Sasha looked at her from the corner of her eyes, “why do you sound like my boss today?”

Geet giggled, “thats because I am…ohh wait..i was I guess..”

And both burst out laughing. The morning was bright for them.

“so… you recalled anything?”, Sasha asked passing her bowl of cereals.

“umm …”, Geet thought for a while, “Sasha.. will you help me?”

Sasha looked at her curiously. She seemed quite better off, “yes tell me…”

“umm… I just wanted a favour from you…”

Sasha was surprised at the sudden change in her, “what is it Geet?”

Geet played with her cereals trying to formulate how to speak it out, “i…i want to remember you… Chachi Ana…dad..everyone by my self… and maan…”

Sasha looked up at her hearing maan’s name from her lips, “maan? You remember?”

Geet smiled a bit, “well.. I don’t remember maan but I do remember your words Sasha.. please its a request. Don’t help me.. don’t tell me anything.. I want to know things by myself…”

Sasha smiled, “well thats a very good thing then Geet… am so happy that you are trying.. I won’t poke my nose in until you ask me to…”

“thanks…”

Geet dug into her food still trying to think of things that related her to maan and why Sasha said he loved her!

 

He woke up with a phone call. He rubbed his eyes and checked the caller… it was an unknown number.

“hello…whos this?”

“sir…am Nishant from xyz news. I just wanted to have a small interview sir..”

“well… yes I remember I was supposed to meet you yesterday…just got held up…”

“not a problem sir… when can I meet you today…if possible?”

Maan yawned…he didn’t have much work any way, “alright in my mansion by 12. And keep it as short as possible..”

“right sir…”

 

He had wished to see her today but this interview…sigh!! he still had not been able to complete his research on her problems. He freshened up and got ready for the interview. It was sharp 12 in the afternoon when one of the servants introduced nishant to him. Maan smiled…his usual crooked smile and offered him a seat.

“thank you sir..i wouldn’t take much of your time.. “

Maan smiled as he put forward his questions on his career, his life, his family, his ventures and so on.

“sir… you had been spotted with a girl the other day… somewhere near Hyde Park. Would you like to tell us who is the lucky girl to have grabbed your attention?”

Nishant smiled but that made maan go stiff. He couldn’t believe these people followed him up there. And another fear…did they even spot geet that night? If it was, then geet probably wasn’t safe given her conditions! He had to  do something to get out of this clean.

PartyA VERY VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE OF YOU
Hug

PART 42

She had almost started jumping, “ohh god… I ran without falling… I did… yiipiieee I did…”

She held his hands and started jumping happily. He just smiled looking at her this excited. But Geet was far from thinking about him. she wa improving..no wonder she didn’t falter a step. She just watched him smile all through which made her evening all the more bright because this was the best evening she ever had and she ran without a fall.

They drove back with a smile still adoring her lips. He brought her an ice cream while coming back…he just couldn’t be happier!

 

She hesitated before entering the house and looked back at maan with a puppy face. He was leaning against the car, waiting for her to get inside. and her look just made him ru towards her and cup her face, “kya baat hain jaan?”

[whats the matter jaan?]

She was oddly feeling so nice with him being around..very calm and composed but she never knew what relation they shared! But she felt a certain connection with him”how she got comfortable with him and around him. usually she was never into meeting new people and always stayed home but this time he was different. She liked him pampering her so much!

“wo…wo…”, she mumbled not knowing how to speak it up.

“bolo na Geet… kya baat hain?”

[tell me Geet… whats the matter?]

She looked down, holding his hands that cupped cheeks, “Sasha dantegi…”

[Sasha will scold…]

 

He heaved a sigh of relief but her vulnerable state made him overwhelmed with emotions. She was still so scared and looking down. He made her face him but her lashes dropped.

“jaan…suno meri baat…”

[jaan listen to me…]

“nahi… Sasha sachi daantegi…”, she spoke getting worried.

[no..sasha will cold…]

“Geet..am there. No one is going to scold…”, he tried to convince her.

She shook her head, “nahin…aapke jaane ke baad daantegi…”

[no..she will scold after you are gone.]

He sighed..he wont let Sasha scold his jaan for whatever reason. He thought for a while and smiled, “acha batao… you have you phone right?”

She nodded cutely.

“okay..take my number and save it. if anyone tells you anything..just give me a call ok..”

 

She looked at him awe recalling the time when Sasha had addressed him as sir and allowed him to take her without a word. She loved this… Sasha wont be able to say anything to her now. She checked her pocket and as usual Sasha had tucked her phone in the jacket. She took it out and tried to punch the number he was saying.

Maan stopped midway seeing her search for numbers before relating to what he was saying and what she was seeing on the screen. He closed his eyes in defeat… she was not okay at all.

“here..let me help…”

He took the phone, punched his number correctly and saved his name and number and showed it to her, “just give me a call okay!”

She watched him smile and urging her to do the same. She smiled weakly and turned to leave. He just stood by his car, looking at his jaan, holding her phone in both her hands walking slowly into the house. what has happened to his jaan… he recalled her counting the ducks, stumbling while walking, her happiness when she realized she ran without falling…her getting scared like that…it killed him from within. God had been kind to have let her live..but he had been cruel enough to make her like this.

 

He drove back home with a heavy heart, speaking to adi over phone about his scheduled flight the next day. he won’t be here for a week! He fell on the bed, thinking about her and closed his eyes. His mind went back to the day when she had called him for the first time.

“hello?”

“hey hot shot… not asleep yet?”

His heart skipped beats hearing her voice… drowsily sexy, like a vixen. He looked at the phone..at the number flashing on it..so that was her number!! His stress was almost gone. He kept the file aside and smiled, like something soothing his heart. he relaxed on the couch, somewhere deep down feeling extremely happy to hear her voice after so long.

“hello? You there hot shot?”

“umm yeah I am… so how come you remembered me after so long?”

She laughed…ahh his heart fluttered with that rhythm of her laughter, “its just been a week and you sound desperate!”

“you could say I was…anyways so Geet ma’am how have you been?”

She felt pampered, “nothing…just a little busy this whole week. Seriously need a break now. You say…you are not yet asleep?”

“hmm…just working on a presentation baby… even I need a break…”

“hmmm… “, she didn’t know what to ask him next but then she asked him directly, “so hows it going with that bi***?”

He smiled and pressed the send’ button of his mail, “nothing serious. Good news for you is that we broke up…”

“seriously? You did that? I mean did she dump you or you did?”

He was amused to hear such excitement in her tone, “you seem so happy about it…what are you thinking Geet?”

She rolled on her bed, “of course I am happy dekha nahi kitna attitude dikha rahi thi. She deserved it… “

[of course I am happy. Didn’t you see she was showing so much attitude. She deserved it…]

He thought for a while and spoke up, kal shaam… coffee pe chalogi?”

[tomorrow evening? Will you come for a coffee?]

 

He smiled..she used to call him hotshot! Does she even remember those things? perhaps not! He wanted to ask her what went wrong between them..what went wrong that she didn’t want him to go to her… what went wrong that she has gone so far away from him! but he just couldn’t…there are questions that only she could answer yet she couldn’t! What a paradox! She was answer to all his questions yet she was the question to all his answers!

 

Geet rolled on her bed, not feeling sleepy at all. Maan was right…sasha never told her anything. She felt happy! She switched on her bed lamp and sat on her study table and took out her notebook where she wrote small small notes of what she had done the whole time. Her doctor had advised her to maintain it to improve her writing as well as reading skills. She flipped through the pages and looked at her entries. There were few…just one liners mostly and full of grammatical and spelling errors that she wasn’t aware of. She opened a fresh page and held her pencil between her fingers and thought for a while.

She wanted to write what she felt today but she didn’t know how to spell the words. She thought for a while and took out her phone, searching for his name. She had only 4 contacts on her list”sahsa, Nisha, Ana and home(current one). The only addition was maan which she could recognise easily. She saw the spelling of his name and tried to write it on the paper. She felt it a little difficult but then Ana had worked hard on making her learn all the alphabets and making small words and forming sentences that she could fill in her notebook.

“Maan is *something scratched* nice. I go to prak (park) today. I no (know) him??”

 

All days are nights to see till I see thee,
And nights bright days when dreams do show thee me.

(William Shakespeare)

————————————————————————

 

he somehow managed to finish his meeting and headed to his suit. This was exhausting but it was exciting. He’d be wrapping up and flying back to London early. It was just a matter of time..2 more days and he’d be back to her. he looked at his phone as he fell on the couch, more because of tiredness. She never called back… well he didn’t expect that either. Expectation hurts..he had come to know really well. and why would she call when she doesn’t even remember him at all? He sighed, “what are you doing right now?”

the phone looked at him blankly, without a movement. He wondered who was he even asking… a phone?? People would laugh at him! he needed a little rest. It was only 5 in the evening. he pulled the curtains, switched off his phone, took off his shoes and shirt  and fell on the bed, drifting into a deep slumber.

 

She had been a good girl lately. Sasha didn’t say her anything not did nisha and Ana after knowing she had been out alone with maan. None even brought up that topic. She realized they might trust him a lot. She had been observing everyone around. Maan hadn’t been home either. She wondered where he might have vanished! Nisha was supposed to leave for India in the next few days and Ana would be flying back with her for she wasn’t keeping too well. she needed someone to take care of her. nisha was very careful about not letting a bit of suspicion hang around them or Geet’s safety.  

 

Geet had been very quiet throughout dinner and retired to her room soon after. Nisha was in the kitchen while Ana and Sasha wondered why Geet was upset. They went to check on her when they saw her sitting on her bed with her legs crossed and looking into oblivion. They went and sat beside her.

“di…whats wrong? Are you okay?”

Geet looked at Ana who looked quite worried and even Sasha.

“am okay…”, she replied meekly.

“then tell us what are you thinking?”, Sasha asked.

Geet sighed and looked blankly at the wall, thinking something and then at Sasha, “how do I know maan?”

Sasha and Ana looked at each other wondering how to answer this. But then they had to let Geet at least have the hints to her past so that she could remember stuffs.

“why such a sudden question?”, Sasha probed.

Geet just looked at her blankly, “I just don’t know.. he doesn’t answer me. But he cares a lot… I don’t understand why…”

Sasha could glimpse a mature Geet speaking to her right now. She was improving yet she was far from everything… actually very far from reality.

“you miss him?”, Ana poked her nose, naughtily, zapping Geet back to reality.

“I don’t know…”, Geet spoke thoughtfully, “can you please tell me how do we know each other? When did we first meet? Where did we meet…”

 

Sasha remained quiet trying to understand the Geet she was witnessing while Ana gave her a wicked smile, “I don’t about the relationship but I do know how you guys met…”

Geet’s eyes lit up…she had been feeling quite differently with maan…like someone she could rely on…trust upon.

Ana thought for a while, “umm.. I don’t know if you two had met before but as far as I know, you two met in Paris…”

Geet’s mouth turned a big O. Here she was thinking of so many possibilities and they met in Paris!!! it sounded kind of romantic, like she had seen in some movies recently and got even more curious, “really? We met in Paris…”

“yep…”, Ana smiled, seeing that brightness on Geet’s face, “that too on your birthday…he had taken you out for dinner…”

Geet’s jaws dropped open… they met like this???  She didn’t know she had been like that earlier… and he had taken her out for dinner on their first meet and that too on her birthday and in Paris?? Ana winked and walked out to nisha, who had been calling her for a long time now. Silence filled the room as Geet again thought hard… they had met like that? she wanted to know more…and looked at Sasha meaningfully. Sasha knew the more they hid things…the more time it will take for her to remember the things. the clock struck 10 and Sasha stood up, “time to sleep…”

Geet just nodded and lied on the bed, still waiting for Sasha. She noticed Sasha looking quite lost. She watched Sasha pull the duvet on her and move towards the switch board. She pressed the lights off and Geet’s voice echoed, “Sasha.. tell me…please!”

Sasha knew there was no return. She opened the door and just whispered, “he loved you… he loved you a lot…”, loud enough for Geet to hear and she just walked away, leaving geet to think further.

Geet just lied still on her bed, trying to take in all that Sasha had told…he loved her?? she recalled the times how nice he had been to her…helping her..pampering her… and do so much in those days as her lashes grew heavy.

“I just don’t remember how love is supposed to feel like…”

She mumbled and drifted off to sleep, opening the doors to her past that haunted her. she saw so many people around her…murmuring..whispering… pitying… and she just couldn’t focus on anyone in particular. Her vision blurred and the only thing she felt was hat excruciating pain coursing throughout her body. Her vision blurred even more… as faces faded away and just a span of whiteness spread all over. She could hear voices… a girl screaming… cars honking… people clapping…so many things happening altogether… she writhed in pain..twisted in agone and a tear drop rolled down her eyes. She didn’t know what actually she was witnessing but whatever she did, made her feel nothing but sheer loneliness and pain…

———————————————–

 

He was so happy to have been back 2 days earlier than scheduled. So its just been 5 days since he had not seen her and today being a Sunday, he just decided to go to her and spend the whole day with her. it was just 8:30am. he finished with his breakfast and rushed to her place, excited like a kid. She hadn’t even called him once..but that was okay. He wasn’t anyways expecting much now. He had been too hurt by expectations when she was okay…now when she is not, there was no point in even thinking of any such thing. He rang the  doorbell and nisha greeted him with a warm smile.

“where were you maan?”

“I just had been to Mumbai for some project Chachi…”, he spoke settling on the sofa, “where’s Geet?”

The house seemed oddly silent for now. Sasha was doing something and Ana had gone out. He waited for nisha to answer but that forlorn look on her face made him wonder if something had gone wrong.

“Chachi…has something happened? Where is Geet?”, he was starting to get worried now.

Nisha sighed and looked at him, “am afraid you might not be able to take this…”

And they just heard a loud crashing of glass from a room.

“you just got your answer…”, nisha spoke and rushed to Geet’s room.

 

Maan was so shocked at the turn of events. he rushed after nisha and what he saw just made him stand still, shocking the hell out of his life. his jaan stood in front of the mirror, watching herself…her face had anger, confusion, frustration…her eyes were red and teary as she looked at herself in the mirror. Pieces of glass were scattered on the floor. nisha rushed to her and hugged her tightly, “its okay Geet…relax..relax…”

She struggled to let go, “no… tell me who you are…”

Nisha pulled her away from the shards scattered on the floor and caressed her face, “its me baby…your Chachi.. listen to me…”

“no… “, she cried, “let me go… ” she tried to break free when her eyes fell on her own reflection in the mirror. She didn’t know who that person was…she moved her hand to touch that girl and the girl did the same too. Her brain refused to connect it to her image as confusion and anger flared high.

“who is she?? Who is she..tell me…” she tried holding on to that girl in the mirror but she wasn’t able to hold her.

 

Frustrated, she threw away everything that was on the table and fell on her knees, “why can’t I remember anything?? Why…”, she screamed and threw away whatever came in her hands, scattered on the floor. she looked here and there frantically, why can’t I remember anything… I…i…”

She looked up to see maan standing still by the door, looking at her, shocked!

“kaun ho tum??”, she asked, getting scared.

[who are you?]

He felt a lump hurt his throat badly, choking him to death.

“Geet…”, he called out softly as she tried to remember him, “why can’t I remember anything?”, she mumbled.

He rushed to her to hold but she jerked his hands away, “stay away from me…no… don’t come closer..”

“jaan..I…”

“No… Go away… just go…i don’t know you”.

He didn’t know what happened to her all of a sudden. She was all okay when he had met her last… did she forget him…yet again? was he going to lose her yet again? millions of questions zoomed around his mind as she screamed at everyone to just leave her alone.
