Mathur: Aap please formalities fill kar dijiye tab thak. Nurse inhey forlmalities fill karney keliye le jaiye please.
Nurse: This way sir.
Just as they rounded the corner the new arrival reached the ICU... Mathur stopped going inside the ICU again and looked back...
Mathur: Chief! Please... Jaldi!
The doctor nodded and followed him inside the ICU.
DUO returned back and sat on the chair. A ward boy at the same time came out of ICU. Daya immediately jumped from his seat.
Daya: Kya hua? Apki chief aagaya?
Abhijit placed his hand on Daya's shoulder and smiled at bewildered wardboy.
Ward boy: Ji saab Chief tho agaye. Ghabrahiye math. Wo zarroor bacha lenge. Aap please mujhey janey dhijiye agar late hogaya tho data padegi.
Saying Daya left his hand he walked away. They waited for another 5 minutes. Just then the nurse came out and looking at the 2 said...
Nurse: Ji... Suniye... Ye injection hume chahiye... Humare yahan ki stock aaj hi khatam hui... Please ise zaraa immediately khareed kar layiyega!
Abhijit took the slip and reading it hurried out to get the injection...
Daya waited for Abhijit to come back and for some news from the ICU...
Few minutes after Daya got call from Asharam so to get the call he left the place, the ICU door opened... Mathur and Chief came out...
Chief (To Mathur): Doctor ab laddka critical stage mein hi hai. Immediately operation karana padeyga. Aap please unke ghar waley jo bi ayen hain unsey inform kar dijiye. Aur haan ye sari test leni hai kal subah aur unko kal 10 bajey ka appointment dhe dijiye. I will meet them tomorrow. Jab injection aaye to inform kijiye... I'll administer it myself! Any more question Doctor.
Mathur: No mam.
Chief: Good. Mein rounds pe jarahi huin. Injection aaney par call kijiye.
Saying so Chief walked down the corridor straight, at the precise time Daya from left walked towards ICU...
Daya: Doctor, kya hua? Amar ab kesa hai?
Mathur: Critical hai. Ab to aapke bete ko emergency ward shift kar rahe hain, observation me rakhenge... Ye tests sab lene hai kal subah.
Mathur and Daya looked back as the boy was wheeled out in a stretcher, to shift to the emergency ward...
Daya: Magar kya hua hai Doctor usko?
Mathur: Sir ussey jald se jald heart surgery karni padegi.
Mathur: Aap please tension math lijiye. Simple operation hai. Humarey Chief Specialist hai. Apko apney betey ke barey mein fikar karni ki zarurath nahi hai. Relax ho jaiye.
Abhijit hurried up to the ICU with the injection towards Daya and Mathur. Seeing Daya sitting on the chair dejected he was surprised as to what could have happened. Abhijit placed his hand slowly on Daya's shoulder. Daya looked up to Abhijit.
Daya: Kya hua? Injection mila?
Before Abhijit could answer anything, a nurse hurried up to them and said….
Nurse: Aap logon ne kitni der kar di… Injection laaye kya?
Abhijit nodded and extended the cover to the nurse…. The nurse took the cover and hurried off…. Mathur followed her.
Abhijit: Kya kaha doctor ney Daya? Amar tik tho hojayega naa?
Daya(Smiling feebly): Haan… Vo ab theek hai, lekin doctor ne kaha hai ki thoda critical hai to observation me rakha hai… Abhi use emergency room me shift kiya hai unhone!
Hearing this Abhijit breathed a sigh of relief…. It was good news that the boy was saved, but this brought another big confusion which Abhijit voiced…
Abhijit: Tho tum kush kyun nahi ho?
Daya: Abhijit, Doctor ne ye bi kaha hai ki Amar ko jald se jald heart peration kar na padega.
Nurse(to Daya): Ji suniye apka beta ab tik hai. Out of critical hai kyun ki injection sahi waqt pe laya gaya tha.
Daya: Thank you. Kya ab hum Amar ko dhek sakthey hain?
Nurse: Ji haan. Magar wo ab so raha hai. Aap please bahar se dhak lijiye ga.
Abhijit: Kya ab hum Chief se mil sakthey hain?
Nurse: Vo to ab rounds par gaye hain…. Chief ne aap ko kal subah 10 baje ka appointment diya hai.
Abhijit: Oh… Lekin hum unse is ladke ke baare me kuch baat karna chahate the…. Hmmm… Unhe ab mil sakte hain?
Nurse: Ji maine kaha naa vo rounds par gaye hain…. Aaj to sirf unka duty hai, to aaj poora din busy honge…. Unka rounds hi khatam hone me do ghante se upar lag sakte hain….
Daya: Lekin humara unse baat karna bhi important hai… Ye ek ladke ke life ka case hai aur iske baare me hi unse baat karni….
Nurse(Getting a little irritated): Ji main maanti hoon zaroori hai, lekin maine kaha naa vo rounds me hain…. Aur emergency ke alawa unke kaam ko koi disturb kare to vo gussa karte hain… I am sorry, aaj to aap unse nahi mil sakte!
Daya(Angry): Fine! Aapke Chief(Sternly) ko unke rounds ke baad to mil sakte hain naa? Batayiye kab free honge tab aayenge….
Nurse: Dekhiye case ke silsile ka alawa unhone keh diya hai ki kisi se nahi milenge… Please….
Abhijit: Excuse me… Hum is case ke baare me baat karna chahate hain aur aap itna stubborn? Police ka maamla hai... Aap jaake unhe inform to kijiye,hum CID se hain milne ya naa milne ki decision unki!
Nurse: Sorry sir….
As Daya and Abhijit argued the nurse stubbornly refused. Just then Mathur came up to them and said stubbornly….
Mathur(Sternly): Kya ho raha hai yahan? Ye hospital hai… Aap log to officers ho, itna to khayal rakhiye ki hospital me doosre patients hain!
All the 3 stopped arguing and DUO looked at him a little frustrated…
Abhijit: Sorry doctor… Vo hum Chief se milna chahate hain…. Unse is case ke baare me baat karni thi!
Mathur: Ji doctor to ab rounds gaye hain…Meri bhi duty khatam ho gayi…. Isliye vo zaraa busy….
Daya(Intervening): Hume pata hai doctor, lekin ye bhi zaroori hai.
Mathur: Main aapki baat samajhta hoonn… Par aab bhi samjhne ki koshish kijiye…Wo aaj puri raath busy hongi. Aap log bi ghar jaiye. Hum Amar ka khayal rakehengey, magar aap Chief se nahi mil sakthey , I am sorry! (To nurse) Ladke par nazar rakhna aur Chief doctor ko update karte rehenaa…. Main chalta hoon!
Saying the doctor nodded and left…. The nurse too gave a look at them and went back inside the emergency ward!
Daya: Bade aaye doctor… Thoda bahut degree kya paa liya, vo to... Are kuch baat hi tho karna hai... V.V.I.P hain kya? That doctor is going to pay!
Abhijit: Chod naa yaar. Koi budha aadmi hoga.
Daya: Kya rule hai yaar. Humey bi nahi rukh ney dhethey?
Abhijit: Chod abi tho yahaan case khtahm hua hai. So it takes time to get everything to normal. Agar tum chaho tho Akshara ya Katerine ji se baath kar ke dhekhein.
Daya: Un logon go ki koi zarurath nahi hai. Kal subah Tarika ko bi hum saath leke athey hain.
Daya: Check karney keliye ki ye sab jooth tho nahi bol rahey hain.
Abhijit: Acha tik hai jesi teri marzi. Chalo. Asharam ko phone karo aur ghar chalthey hain ab. Bahuth dher bi ho chuki hai.
They both crossed the entrance when Katerine saw them from another end of corridor. She immediately called Akshara.
Katerine: Hello Akshara.
Katerine: Sorry yaar disturb karney keliye. But ek emergency hai.
Katerine: Yaar tumhara hero hospital mein hai.
Katerine: Haan. Mein joot kyun bolungi.
Katerine: Abi tho bahar gaye.
Katerine: Ok mein Vindhya se information collect karti huin.
Katerine: Ok will call you back.
Katrine cut the call and approached reception area.
Katerine: Vindhya! Zara bathao ye log jo abi gaye they kis keliye aye yahaan? Kya un dono mein kisi ko chot lagi hai kya?
Vindhya: Nahi madam.
Kaerinet: Thank god.
Vindhya: Unkey betey ko admit kiya hai yahaan.
Katerine: WHAT? Kiska beta hai wo.
Vindhya: Ek minute mam check karkey batha thi huin.
Katerine: Jaldi karo.
Vindhya: Mr. Daya ka beta hai mam wo. Emergency room no 12 mein hai patient.
Katerine: Oh no! OK Thank you Vindhya.
Vindhya: Welcome mam.
Katerine immediately called Akshara to canteen after her rounds.
Time 2:00 am:
In hospital canteen:
Akshara: Jaldi bathao Daya kyun aye yahaan. Unko koi chot tho nahi lagi naa.
Akshara: Thank god.
Akshara: Magar kya Kat?
Katerine: Daya ke bachey ko yahaan admit kiya gaya hai. Energency ward no 12 pe.
Akshara was shell shocked to hear the news.
Akshara: Ye nahi ho saktha. Ye ho hi nahi saktha.
Katerine: Akshara sambhalo.
Akshara: Mene treat kiya uss patient ko abi aaj. Amar hai uska naam. Wo Daya ka beta hai?
Katerine: Haan. Ach hua tumhey …..
Akshara: That's great news. Now by treating him I can repay him. Jo help unhoney mujhey pheley kiya uska kimath ab mein unkey bete ke zariya chukka doongi.

Katerine: But tum tho unsey…..unsey…..
Akshara: Unsey kya Katerine? Pyaar? Nahi tho. Meiney kaha naa nahi karthi mein unsey pyaar.
Saying she suddenly got up walked past Katerine out of the canteen. Katerine saw her going past the revolving door.
Katrine: You do love him Akshara. Ye tho saaf saaf nazar aa raha hai.
A man in his early 30s came and stood before Katerine.

Time 9:55 am:
DUO and Tarika came out of the lift in the second floor….
They stopped a passing ward boy and asked him Heart Chief Specialist's cabin…. He indicated the third cabin on the right side of the corridor….. As the group started to go towards the cabin, they heard a shout….
"Mujhe nahi peena hai!"
The looked behind in the left corridor and saw a door open nearby and a small boy around five years of age came running out… He came running and hid behind a surprised Tarika…
Behind him a nurse came running…. Tarika saw that the nurse had a small cup of medicine in one hand and a glass of water in another! And understood what all the hungama was for!
Nurse(To Tarika): Sorry Madam… Vo bahut badmaash hai… (Tilting her head to see behind her) Swapnil! Chalo ab bahar aao… Aunty ko kyun tang kar rahe ho? Ab...
As the nurse tried to look behind Tarika he moved more on Tarika's other side holding her skirt tightly.
Smiling Tarika said the nurse to wait and catching the boy's hand made him come to her front… Kneeling down smilingly asked…
Tarika: Kya naam hai aapka?
Boy: Maa khethi hai ajnabi ko naam nahi khethey.
Tarika(smiling): Acha. Tho tik hai mera naam Tarika hai aur ye merey dosth Abhijit aur Daya hain.
Abhijit(kneeling down): Tho ab aap apka naam bathiyengey?
All 3 smiled on the way how in child's voice he tried to say his name with innocence.
Abhijit(smiled): Acha swapnil. Bada pyara naam hai.
Daya: Medicine nahi le rahe? Aapki tabiyat theek nahi hai, hai naa ?
Swapnil: Achcha nahi hai… Urrghh… (Putting his tongue out indicating it was bitter) Mujhe cheweet medicine chahiye!
Tarika smiled at his innocence and said…
Tarika: Haan kadvi to hogi… Lekin health ke liye important hai, hai naa?
Swapnil: Nai… No kadvi… cheweet dene ko kaho naa!
Abhijit: Haan beta... Vo bhi denge... Lekin sabhi medicines sweet nahi hote naa... Tumhe jaldi theek hokar hospital se jaana nahi hai kya? Ghar jaake khel sakte ho is tarah...
Swapnil: Nahi… Nahi jaana… Mujhe nahi chahiye!
Saying the boy started to run off again as the 3 stood up smiling... Before he could escape further the nurse caught him... He was struggling in her arm when the group heard…
