Rahul : Papa… Lavanya : Mama… (RagLak) Episode 56
The episode starts with Lavanya looking at the curry with teary eyes while Ragini, Rahul and Raghav laugh. Laksh switches off the stove and finds Lavanya tearing.
Laksh : Ragini… (Ragini is still laughing) Ragini…
Laksh called her a bit louder and Ragini looked at him, he signed her to look at Lavanya and she looked, Ragini’s smile fades away and she walks to Lavanya.
Ragini : Sweet heart it is your first time and it is a usual thing, being your mama I still burn food baby.
Lavanya starts crying.
Lavanya : I wanted to serve the first curry I made to papa with so much love…
Ragini interrupts : So what still we can adjust it.
Lavanya shakes her head and wipes her tears.
Lavanya : It won’t be what I wanted.
Rahul : It was anyway notj going to be what you wanted.
RagLak : Rahul…
Rahul : Oops sorry.
Laksh holds Lavanya’s cheek and wipes the tears which were flowing out of her eyes.
Laksh : I would eat even the burnt food which was prepared by my daughter with love.
Ragini smiles while Laksh nodded his head and Lavanya hugged him smiling in between her tears.
Lavanya : I love you papa.
Laksh : Love you too princess.
Ragini : Papa and his champs and princesses can go out so I can finish my cooking or today we will have to eat all burnt food.
Laashya : Never, I can’t eat burnt food.
Raghav : At least then you will stop eating.
Laashya pots while Laksh carries Raghav.
Laksh : Don’t you like your sister eating?
Raghav buries his head on to Laksh’s shoulder.
Raghav : I like papa but she will turn in to a motu if she eat like this.
Ragini : Laksh take them out so I can finish my cooking fast.
Laksh nods and scene shifts to SwaSan’s room.
Sanskaar : I seriously don’t get what is happening Swara.
Swara : That Lavanya is there to destroy our life.
Sanskaar : Shut up Swara, you did mistake by blaming Lavanya and now don’t talk as if you are right.
Swara : Ohho even you started taking her side? She is just a girl who doesn’t even belong to our family.
Sanskaar : What do you mean?
Swara : I will never let what happened to me to my kids. Like my father’s family took away all our property I will never let your family take away my kids property.
There was a tight slap on Swara’s cheek shocking Swara.
Sanskaar : Is property only what you need?
Swara : Haa, like I suffered I will never let my kids suffer. Plus that is unfair to give them more property than us according your dad’s last will.
Sanskaar : Shut up Swara, papa’s last will was given fairly. Their family is bigger plus Ragini’s whole property got vanished except the construction company unlike you. So it is fair.
Swara : You might not care about my children but I do.
Swara leaves out.
Scene shifts to the children’s study where Lavanya, Sawitha and Rahul are talking while Ragav and Laashya are playing blocks with Sandesh. Sandya comes and looks at them.
Sandya : I’m sorry everyone, because of me all of you had to face different problems from then to now. Sandesh I created misunderstanding between you and papa that both of you still aren’t speaking, I made Lavanya and Sawitha look at fault, I’m sorry for everything.
Lavanya : Di we were really at fault but now forget it.
Sandya falls on the ground and cries.
Sandya : How can I forget? (She cries hard while Rahul takes Laashya and Raghav out) I can never forget him.
Laashya : Bhaiyaa why is di crying?
Rahul : Di is hungry that is what she is crying.
Laashya : If I give my cookies will she stop crying?
Rahul : We will tell papa and then he will decide it.
Laashya runs to Laksh who was signing some files. She starts breathing heavily.
Laashya : Papa… papa (She breaths out and Laksh rush to her) papa…
Laksh : What happened Laashya?
Laashya : Papa Sandya di is crying as she is hungry.
Laksh : Hungry?
Laksh looks at Rahul and Rahul shakes his head.
Laashya : Haa I will give my cookies if she wants.
Laksh : I will check baby you stay here with bhaiyaa and Raghav okay?
Laashya nods and Laksh leaves to the study and find Sandya on the ground crying.
Lavanya : Di…
Laksh signs her to stop from his palm and kneels down to Sandya.
Laksh : Sandya…
Sandya : Chaachu I have no idea what to do (She cries out loud) I promised mama still I can’t forget him…
Laksh hugs her and she hugs him back.
Laksh : Shshshshs…Stop crying I will speak with Sanskaar doll stop crying.
Sandya : Mama won’t agree chaachu
Sandesh, Sawitha and Lavanya looks at her worriedly.
Laksh : I will speak now stop crying (He makes her look at him) Listen you are 19 years and is still small, once you are 23 or 24 we will fix it with him. We have time to convince everyone hena so stop crying. Listen to me (He wipes her tears) as you promised to mama don’t talk and meet but ask him to wait for you, if he is really man he will wait for you until the end.
Sandesh : Sandya chaachu is right, in fact we can actually get to know about his background.
Laksh nods and makes her stand.
Laksh : Lavanya and Sawitha take her to her room and make her sleep.
They nod and walk out taking Sandya while Laksh turns to Sandesh.
Sandesh : Chaachu, I will get about his background.
Laksh nods and walks out, Ragini arranges the food.
Ragini : Where is everyone? Already it is lunch time and didn’t anyone feel hungry.

Laashya : Mama hungry…
Ragini chuckles and carries her.
Ragini : No food for you today.
Laashya : Mama how come you not give me food?
The rest comes.
Ragini : You fought with my son remember?
Laashya buries her face in to Ragini’s shoulder.
Laashya whispers : I’m hungry.

Sanskaar : What you doing?
Swara : I have brought food for my family.
Ap comes and looks on.
Laksh : Swara from when did you start speaking dividing as my family and your family?
Swara : From the day I knew your real face.
Ragini : What real face are you talking about?
Swara : Enough Ragini, stop questioning me. I have my own brain and I can make my decision.

Laashya : Not super hero papa they are super zero.
Laashya sticks her tongue out while Ragini and Lavanya laugh.
Laksh : Your mouth is not for your size.
Ragini : Ahh Laksh, I will check with Sandesh, Sawitha and Sandya and come. (Laksh nods and Ragini places Laashya on the bed and leaves out. Ragini walks passing Sandya’s room and finds Sandya lost in her thoughts, Sawitha seated on the couch tears rolling down her cheek and Sandesh looking out of the window) What are you three doing?
All three of the looks at Ragini and Ragini sit on the bed.
Sandya : I have no idea why mama is behaving like this, papa is hurt too.
Ragini : Everything will be okay, why don’t you three join us too we planned to watch a movie.
Sandesh : Chaachi…
Ragini interrupts : I and your chaachu have spoken regarding your mama, everything will be okay it is a promise from your chaachi. Now come and let’s relax a bit.
Ragini drags Sandya and Sawitha and signs Sandesh to come, they reach the room and finds all four of them tickling Laksh and he is laughing loud. Ragini clears her throat and the kids move back.

Flashback 20 years ago (No one is thinking or narrating)
Laksh turns and looks at Ragini while Ragini lowers her gaze to the ground. Laksh walks in and she follows him. Laksh stopped and turned to Sanskaar and walked to him.
Laksh : Take care Sanky.
Sanskaar nodded and hugged Laksh so does Laksh.
Sanskaar : Take care.
They broke the hug and Laksh looked Ragini and walks to her and made her look at her, tears rolled down her eyes and Laksh wiped them with his thumbs and shook his head.
Laksh : Do you believe me?
Ragini nodded closing her eyes tightly.
Ragini : I do.
Laksh : Open your eyes.
Ragini opened and Laksh dragged her to his chest wrapping his hand around her and she buried her face inside his chest. Laksh kissed on her head and took out his phone out.
Ragini : Laksh…
Laksh switches the front camera.
Laksh : Now like my good girl smile.
Ragini : Laksh…
Laksh : Smile will you?
Ragini forced a smile between her tears and hugged Laksh tightly while Laksh’s eyes welled up looking at Ragini from his phone, she was hugging him tightly half burying her head on his chest. Laksh took few snaps and kissed her forehead and removed Ragini’s grip from him got boarded in without making any eye contact. Ragini understood what he was going through.
Ragini whispered : Laksh…
Laksh had already disappeared from her eyes she closed her eyes tightly and let the rest of the tears she was controlling until now.
Sanskaar : Ragini… (He sighed) shall we leave?
Ragini nodded and walked to the car like a lifeless body. She got in to the car at back and rested her head on the window and closed her eyes all her moments with Laksh flashed in to her eyes while his laugh echoed in her ears. They reached home Ragini walked in still lost in Laksh’s thoughts she climbed up while Ap was forcing Swara to drink milk.
Ap : Swara beta drink this… (Swara shakes her head) Ragini beta you come and make her…
Ap looks at Ragini who is walking up like a lifeless soul and realizes what she said. Swara and Sanskaar too looks at Ragini while she walks to her room.
Swara : I will take a look.
Sanskaar : No Swara let her be alone for some time I think she prefers that.
Ap nods and Swara looks at Sanskaar worriedly. Ragini reaches their room and looks around and walks to each corner still weeping out. She sits in the middle of the room and cries out sobbing in. She walked to the bed and caressed the side which Laksh use to sleep and clutches the sheet and cries out and hugs it, she doezes off clutching the sheet after crying hard. She slept with the hope that let everything turned out to be her dream. Scene shifts to the airplane where Laksh is looking out of the window and a drop of tear roll down his eyes, he felt someone sitting beside him and wipes his tears and looked beside him and found a man smiling at him.
Man : You must be Laksh Maheshwari.

Laksh : And you?
Man : Gautam…Gautam Ravindar
He forwards his hand and Laksh forwards his hand and they shake hands.
Laksh : Nice to meet you.

Laksh : Yes (Laksh smiles) you have a nice memory then.
Gautam laughs while Laksh looks confusingly.
Gautam : Actually my wife and her sister were feeling attached looking at your picture.
Laksh : What made them both think alike?
Gautam : Well my wife’s younger brother got lost when he was 2 or 3 months old.
Laksh nodded and looked out.

Gautam shakes his head.
Gautam : It is fine btw where are you gonna live?
Laksh : Hotel.
Gautam : If you want you can live with me after all we are Indians.
Laksh : But your wife and her sister won’t it be uncomfortable for them?
Gautam laughs out.
Gautam : Those two are crazy bro, they are in India in search of their brother.
Laksh : You sound rude bhaiyaa, they must have a strong feel to find someone or else they won’t. May be he is still alive somewhere.
Gautam : There you are speaking just like my wife.
Gautam takes the water bottle to drink.
Laksh : So they are in India?

Ragini : Ma did you give Swara to drink anything?
Ap : Haa beta, I have made drink for you and kept in the fridge take and have it. (Ap walks to her and holds her cheek) you didn’t have even a drop of water from morning.
Ragini : I’m not feeling to ma.
Ap : You have to take care of yourself, if you can’t I will have to take care of yourself. I can’t answer my son’s questions once you fall a sick.
Ap says it pouting while Ragini smiles and nod.
Ragini : I will have it ma.
Ap gets teary.
Ap : It us the first time he went so far leaving me all alone. Now he thinks he is big and can do stuffs alone but for me he will always remain my little boy.
Ragini smiles and wipes Ap’s tears.
Ragini : Stop worrying everything will be okay.
Ap nods and Ragini walks to the fridge and she remembers how Laksh was striking the fridge from her and she gets teary. Scene shifts to hospital where Harini is coming out of a cabin with a letter.
Harini : What was the need to be transferred to south all of a sudden? (She rolls up her eyes) My dean is dumb, that too for a year.
Scene shifts to AM (Ahuja Mension) where Akshaya is cutting fruits for Ananya.
Akshaya : Jiju is really dumb di.
Ananya : I’m just wondering how our brother will be.
Akshaya : I have pictured him as the guy in that newspaper.
Ananya : You are really crazy.
Akshaya : Di our bhai also must be his age.
Ananya : I have prayed god that if I find him anyhow I will give food for 1000 poor and orphan people every year on my kid’s birthday.
Akshaya : When I start earning I will pay you.
Ananya laughs and Akshaya grins.
Laksh has reached safely; both Gautam and Laksh get in to Gautam’s car. Laksh takes out his phone and dial’s Ragini’s number, Ragini was sitting in the dark in her room on the bed dragging her legs to her chest. She was resting her head on the bed. The phone rang and she took and found ‘Laksh’s name flashing and a deep smile appear. Ragini’s answers it and tears roll down her eyes.
Ragini : Laksh…Laksh did you reach safely?
Laksh : Ragini can you hear me?
Ragini : Hello (She looks at the phone and rush out to the balcony) Laksh can you hear me?
Laksh : Ragini (Ragini hears his voice and smiles and Laksh’s phone gets disconnected) Ragini…Ragini…
Ragini looks at the phone and grits her teeth, she dials back to Laksh and there was no answer. She sits walks back to the bed and sits, she keeps trying and it is not reachable.
God nothing should happen to my Laksh, keep him safe and secured.
Ragini’s POV ends.
Gautam : Once we reach home you can contact her btw it must be mid night for them, so we can call once it is morning there.
Laksh nods and they reach a house, Laksh gets down and looks at the house. Both of them hoes in.
Laksh : It is a nice house.
Gautam : Yes it is, you can use the top floor fully.
Laksh : A room is enough bhaiyaa.
Gautam : I will give you food don’t worry, use the top floor.
Laksh : Then I’m fine, I was scared that I would have to cook alone.
Gautam : You have to feel free plus use upstairs as you own house, do whatever you want.
Laksh : Sure bhaiyaa
Gautam : Go have a wash and take rest, I will order dinner.
Laksh : Okay
Laksh nods and walks up stairs, there was big living room with a big TV and couch with a shelf next to the TV, on top of the TV there was girl’s picture hung, she was having a puppy in her hand. Laksh feels connected and walks to the picture and caresses it.
Gautam : She is Akshaya my saali ji but more like my daughter. Such a cupcake she is.
Laksh smiled and looked on, Gautam finds something odd. Laksh was looking at the picture releasing all the tense he had up to now. Gautam remembers the way Akshaya looked at his picture with so much love.
Laksh : Do you mind me replacing stuffs?
Gautam shakes his head.
Gautam : I’ll take this picture.
Laksh : No, don’t let it be.
Gautam smiles and nods.
Gautam : She used the whole floor you can change anything you want.
Gautam left and Laksh looked around, there were few family frames in a whole wall and clock right at the middle, Family frame included Akshaya, Ananya their parents and Gautam. There was faded picture of a small baby too where a lady is carrying and man has wrapped his hand around, Laksh smiled looking at them and for the time in his life he forgot Ragini and all his problems for a minute. Laksh turned and found three doors, he opened the first one it was all purple and while where a bed and wardrobe was places with a couch. Akshaya’s smiling picture was hung on right top of the bed and two huge purple bean bags. Laksh looked around the room and smiled. He walked back and opened the second room which was next to it and it was study with huge shelves on the either side with books filled and a big table in the middle, a huge glass window was there to look the night city of London, the room was more like a library where the ware bean bags too. Laksh closed it and walked to the room right in front of the study he opened and it was all grey, white and black themed room where Laksh walked in sighed.
Here, where I’m going to live without my Ragini all alone in this room. Everything seems peaceful here but I know how much she would be suffering with my memories in that house. Go please help her to come over it.
Laksh’s POV ends
He takes his bad and places in; He takes out a frame of his family and hangs it on the wall. A big frame of Ragini right in front of his bed, and their wedding pic was kept on the dresser. He took out Ragini’s perfume and sprayed it all over the room to feel her and he opened his bag and placed all his clothes on the empty cupboard where he even placed few of Ragini’s Saadis to feel her presence. Laksh looked around his room and sighed out and walked to the washroom and came out wearing his pajamas. Life was not going to be easy from now on. He wished goes that these months should pass in the speed of light. Laksh sat on the bed and took his phone which was on the side table and looked at the last picture he captured with his Ragini. Her pain was clearly visible; she was clutching him tightly and burying her face in to him. Tears rolled down his cheeks and he dozed off looking at it.
The week which passed has made Ragini half die, she had gone pale and her eyes were sunk in lacking sleep. There was not a night she dreamt Laksh. The agony which she was going through was visible to everyone. Ragini walked out of the kitchen and stopped when AP called her.
Ap : Ragini beta (Ragini turned and gave a painful look) Beta…
Ragini smiled between her pain and shook her head.
Ragini : He didn’t call yet.
Ap : It is been a week beta.
Ragini broke down and fell on the floor.
Ragini : It is getting hard ma (Dp and Sanskaar rushed out of the study. Swara came out of her room and walked down) it has been a week he didn’t even call me after that night.
Swara : Ragini…
Ragini interrupts : If he had called or contacted any of you please (She folds her hand pleads) please ask him to speak to me once just once.
She held her shaadi and cried out while AP rushed to her.
Laksh : Ragini…. (Ragini raised her head and found Laksh standing near the stairs) Stop crying I’m back.
Ragini : Are you back?
She rushes to him and holds his cheek.,
Laksh : I felt your pain and I’m back.
Swara, Sanskaar, Ap and Dp are shocked.
Ragini smiles through her tears and Laksh smiles.
Laksh smiles while Ragini finished buttoning.
Laksh : It is like we have seven kids now.
Ragini : If you wouldn’t have delayed as soon as we got married would have had a kid in Sandya’s and Sandesh’s age.
Laksh nods while Ragini turns to leave and he hugs her from behind.
Laksh whispers : Then actually we would have seven hena.
Ragini blushes and hits hard on his stomach.
Ragini : Such a jerk you are.
Laksh ties her removed dori and makes her turn.
Laksh : Btw are you still worried about me delaying it, omg the love tortures you have me then. Now you are getting bored.
Ragini : You were trying to run from me from then, I had to give some sweet tortures to keep you with me.
Laksh : Evil woman you are.
Ragini : I will check if the kids are ready.
Ragini walks out and enters Raghav’s room. Rahul comes with the towel wrapped.
Rahul : Mama did you see my belt?
Ragini : Raghav come out fast, it is getting late beta.
Rahul : Mama…
Ragini : What belt? It must be in your room. You go out and come home and throw is somewhere and I have to search. Ask Vini or see under the bed.
Raghav comes out and Ragini carries him.
Rahul : Mama I searched everywhere.
Ragini : You go I will come and yeah ask di to check Laashya.
Rahul walks out while Ragini takes out a grey three quarter and black t shirt and makes Raghav were it. She combs his hair and applies cologne.
Raghav : Mama for me belt?
Ragini chuckles and holds his stomach.
Ragini : My panda doesn’t need belt, he is already chubby.
Raghav : But I want to wear too.
Ragini outs and takes the belt from the drawer and makes him wear.
Ragini : Now go down and sit like a good boy.
Raghav nods and runs out. Ragini walks to Laashya’s room; she was wearing a cute pink frock and tries to zip it up herself. Ragini walks to her and carries her and zips the frock and ties the belt.
Laashya : Thank you mama
Ragini smiles and starts combing her hair and ties it to a pony tail.
Ragini : Now my doll go down and sit with Raghav and both of you ask papa to make you wear the shoe.
Ragini walks to Lavanya’s room and finds both Sawitha and Sandya ready but not Lavanya.
Sawitha : Luv get ready fast.
Sawitha had worn and long simple gown with a cardigan on it while Sandya had worn a jean and long kurti.
Ragini : Why aren’t you ready doll?
Lavanya : Mama I already told you I’m not coming.
Ragini : My life papa had already told all of you are coming, what will that uncle and aunty think if you don’t come?
Lavanya : Mama…
Ragini interrupts : For your papa get ready and come will you?
Lavanya nods and Ragini kisses on her head and walks out. She comes down and find Raghav and Laashya playing run and catcher while Laksh is on a call, Sanskaar comes down.
Raghav : If you can catch me.
Ragini : Both of you stop, god help me. (Ragini shouts) Laashya and Raghav stop.
Laksh hangs up and walks to her.
Laksh : Relax Ragini (He turns to Raghav and Laashya) both of you like papa’s good kids get in to the car.
Raghav and Laashya run out.
Ragini : I’m feeling like faintish.
Sanskaar : Are you sure you can manage all of them?
Ragini : Managing these two is the hardest.
Lavanya comes down wearing a look alike long frock of Sawitha and Laksh smiles.
Laksh : Three of you look gorgeous.
Ragini : Have to remove evil eyes.
Laksh : Is my eye evil.
Ragini smirks .
Ragini : Your eyes is only evil.
Laksh : I will give you the punishment once we come back home
Ragini sticks her tongue out, Rahul and Sandesh come down.
Laksh : Shall we leave?
Ragini : Sandesh bring Rahul, Sawitha and Lavanya. Sandya you join us or you can come with them.
Sandya : I will come with you.
Laksh : The let’s leave.
All of them leave, and screen freezes on Ragini’s and Laksh’s smiling faces.
