Mohabbat

"Mohabbat bhi Zindagi ki tarah hoti hai
Har mod asaan nehi hota, har mod pe khushiya nehi milti.
Jab hum zindagi ka saath nehi chhodte toh
Mohabbat ka saath kyun chhode??

Rehearsal: Love And Practicality(Fiction)



After long nine years of her marriage they met in their common friend’s marriage ceremony, he was continuously trying to avoid talking with her but after one hour she found out a way to talk to him.


Standing under a tree holding a cup of coffee he was trying bring back his thoughts from those old days, memories…which has created a mixed effect in his emotions, now their intensity has increased a lot.


Seeing him alone in the garden she knocked from behind…

She: hi, how are you?

His heart was beating fast as it used to beat those days whenever he used to talk to her or she used to come in his view. Lots of thoughts were knocking into his mind, lots of questions and a little ray of hope, his voice almost chocked when he tried to reply, clearing his voice he replied

…am fine? You?

She replied with a joyous smile

…Fantastic.

Then there was a silence for a minute, she was looking at him with a smile in her face, confusions were clashing with each other in his mind, he was unable to decide whether he should ask the question or not and at the end with the thought that may be later he will not get a better chance than this to ask her, so finally he asked

…why did you leave me? What was my fault? I never even can think to betray you.

These words worked as a sparkle of fire in the gun powder of practicality in her mind, she asked angrily

…can’t you think beyond these? For how many years you will spend life as a fool? It’s time to grow up, be practical.


…to love someone is “foolish”?

…yes it is, there is nothing called love exist in this world, these are some foolish feelings nothing more than it.

She stopped for a while and then started with agitated voice

…do you wanna know the truth? ok, then listen…I was never been in love with you, yes this is the truth, if you would have minimum common sense then you could realize easily that there were so many boys mad for me then why I chosen you, because observing you I realized you are the most simplest of any other of my admirers and so you are not harmful, those days of love were nothing but my rehearsal days, yes first of all I had to experience what love is and simultaneously I had to make myself better to capture the human mind with my beauty and nature.


He was shocked, her answers made her so much surprised that he forgot to take the coffee he was holding in his hand, the glass remained half filled with the coffee and got cold.


She continued

…if I mention those days of quarrels when our relationship was about to end then the fool people like you will analyze with full emotion…”oh ho, she still remains those days even after so many years, that means she has still some feelings left in her heart for me”, now let me tell you the truth…I remember those days because the quarrels happened for my fault, yes it was my fault and I have remembered this so that I never make such mistakes or similar mistakes with my husband.


Taking a short gap she asked
 
…do you wanna know more?

He replied with a trembling voice

…yes, today I wnanna know the entire truth, please continue…


She gave an insignificant look to him and started 

…I will ask you a question and answer me the truth.


He nodded his head and agreed

She asked

…I know you can remember that after five years of my marriage I wanted to make contact with you through our common friend and you requested her not to share anything about you with me, now tell me did not you become happy knowing my concern about you?

…yes, I became happy.

She laughed out and replied]

….that’s the problem with the foolish people like you, if you would have minimum common sense which I have already told you then you could make the simple calculation, which is…I felt to make contact with you then why did not you feel to make contact with me? Do you know the answer, the psychology behind it?

He remained silent, she started again

psychological fact is…if a couple was in love truly then it will not be possible for them to continue their relation as friends after their break up, I never loved you, you were just an experimental object to enrich my experience that’s why I did not find any hesitation to make contact with you on the other hand you loved me whole heartily, your heart and mind is full with the foolish emotion called “love” that’s why you never felt to make contact with me and even today you were trying to avoid me. You know there is nothing called “love” or the “power of love” exists, if love is so powerful then tell me how so many people can ignore their duties to their parents and keep them in old age home? we all know that the love of parents are the most selfless and dedicated love in this world, then tell me why the “power of love” of the parents can’t resist the child to take their parents to old age home? Can you?


He remained silent, the thoughts in his mind creating hammering effect in his brain. She was looking at him with a smiling face and said in a clam voice

…you know, it’s all about necessity of life, I wanted a luxurious life with all the pleasures, this is the reason when some people find their parents as useless then they keep their parents in old age homes. Look at me…my life is settled totally, I am expecting a child also, six more months left, a complete and happy family and look at you…you still unable to throw myself out from your so called “heart” and your future is still uncertain, one more thing which I wanna inform you is…when my child will grow up I will make her/him as practical as me and you will teach your child the ethics, moral values, love and will teach “it’s not good to play with the emotions of others” and guess what will happen…my child will live a happy and luxurious life and your child will suffer with so called ‘moral values’ and “relations”, don’t make such mistake and be practical.


Taking a deep breath and somehow managed to laugh out loudly she said

…its really right “love is blind” and you have become totally blind in life otherwise you could understand it very easily that when my parents were blaming you for trapping me in the name of love then why did not I took your side, even after that incident I denied to meet you and never made any contact with you, but still you think I loved you !!!!!! probably you have made some “foolish emotional calculations” behind my ignorance. Am I right?


Taking a pause she said
 
…now I have to go but before this I wanna tell you something…do you know why the words “cheater’ “playgirl” playboy” exist ? because there are some people with certain natures who belongs to these categories but it does not affect the life much if you have intelligence, so try to be practical.


She left the place and he remained still there…he was unable to move, felt like paralyzed.
