Passing Pink Cloud – An Anidita OS
Hi friends,I wrote an OS on Anidita for the first time and wanted to share it here with you all. I am not a regular watcher and hence maybe this OS lacks some character justice. Please read it and let me know your feedback. That would mean a lot to me. _______________________________Anirudh got shocked when he heard that their village guards have captured two girls from Krishnanagar as prisoners. He cannot believe that his people have stooped so low to take revenge. He scolded everyone and started walking towards the courtyard where they kept the girls as prisoners.He saw two girls kneeling with their faces covered with black cloth. Both seemed very young and probably unmarried. He heard muffled sobs from the girl who is wearing yellow salwar. She is crouching and her head is bowed down. He felt pity for that girl and angry with Thakumma. How dare she compels her innocent village people to do her dirty works? In anger, he slightly turned and found the other girl wearing a pink salwar.Her posture surprised him. She is kneeling straight and her face though covered is looking up to him. He knows that she can see his face but what intrigued him is that no girl had looked up at him. For some reason, he could not stop gazing at that black cloth-covered face. When that pink girl tried to get up from her position, a guard came forward to stop her. But, Anirudh signaled him to stop.The pink girl stood up facing him. She walked close to him and stopped just one foot away. She is the same height as him. He is marveled at her courage. This girl got captured by her enemies and the other girl who accompanied her is crying buckets just two feet away but still, she is standing up to their capturer. He always likes brave girls – it is almost his weakness. Few more minutes passed and no one spoke. The girl didn’t say anything because her mouth is tied but why he is not talking is beyond his reasoning. His fingers itched to remove the black cloth covering her face. He got shocked because of this new temptation. Temptation?Anirudh Roy Choudary is beyond desire and temptation. He had already sacrificed his life and career for the welfare of his village people, but then what is this new feeling confusing him now. Whatever it is, he is not going to let this ruin his eight-year routine. He tightly closed his fists and blew a deep sigh to control himself. This action worsens his condition more since his heavy blow moved up the black cloth covering her face slightly making her neck visible. It is clear as marble and he wondered how it would feel to touch there.He gasped and turned back away from her. He blinked furiously to get rid of this disgusting thought from him. This had never happened and he felt ashamed of himself. He took a deep sigh and ordered the guards to send those girls back to Krishna Nagar. The whole room became silent. Even the muffled sob is no longer is heard. He guessed that the yellow salwar girl must be happy to hear his order. He is not sure about the pink girl though. To be honest, he cannot decode her and her body language. She seems brave. Is she the leader of this newfound female spy group of Krishna Nagar?He could not help but smile at how a tiny-looking girl could be a leader and how much it would be funny to witness her issuing her orders to other girls. His smile vanished when he saw a guard dragging the said leader crossing him. He shouted to him to leave her suddenly surprising others and himself. The guard right away removed his hand from her and held his hands up high as if surrendering to him. Everyone is looking at him in shock and he gulped thinking what reason he could give as an excuse.He looked around and found another guard standing in a similar posture next to the yellow churidar girl. He exhaled loudly in relief. Though his outburst is exclusive to the pink girl, he doesn’t think anyone realized it. He scolded both the guards for manhandling girls and ordered the girls to move forward themselves out if they don’t fancy death. The yellow salwar girl started walking right away to the exit. But the pink girl doesn’t move an inch. He felt angry at this girl who seems to be adamant about being unique. She only started moving after a guard nudged her with his gun.She turned and started walking away. He could not help but think how gracefully she walks even when she had been tied. She turned back suddenly to look at him, making him panic thinking whether she is a witch who can read people’s minds. Is she a witch because he already feels bewitched? She turned back to the exit and he stopped himself from banging his head against the nearby stone wall. Since, when he had started to believe in witches? Barrister Babu never believes in superstitious beliefs.The pink girl disappeared from his sight and he exhaled in relief. There she is gone! He should not bother himself with these passing clouds. He heard the engine starting sound of the jeep and before he could even think what is happening, his legs automatically started running towards the gate. He saw the jeep moving away and the only person faced towards his direction is the pink girl. Why she was looking at a haveli where she was kept as a prisoner? Doesn’t she know that one should always look towards freedom? He shouted stop making the jeep halt abruptly.Everyone else turned back at the sound and looked in shock again on seeing him running towards their jeep. He stopped beside the jeep taking heavy breaths. They must be wondering why their leader is doing crazy stuff today. Well, join the club. He wonders the same.After gaining control over his breath and thought, he told them that he too would accompany them since he missed seeing his enemy Thakumaa. One confused-looking guard reminded him that only yesterday he saw her in a panchayat. Is it? Of course! How could he forget that? He cannot believe that he failed to lie convincingly being a barrister and all.Since he could not come up with a better lie on such short notice, he just looked sternly at him. The guard gulped and looked down in fear. The guard sitting in the front seat got down and boarded the backside. When he climbed up, he saw her no more looking at his haveli but looking at him instead. He felt proud of beating the haveli in competition. He frowned. What competition? He shook his head to clear weird thoughts and instructed the driver to start the vehicle.They stopped in front of the gates of Krishna Nagar. His journey to Krishna Nagar was peaceful without any unwanted thoughts since he was reciting laws in alphabetical order. But when he stopped on reaching the destination, the weird thoughts too started. It urged him to look back at the pink girl and he almost gave up his self-control but got saved when Thakumaa and Chandrachur reached on the other side of the gate. He felt happy for the first time on seeing his dearest enemies. Well, lots of things happening for the first time today.He got down from the jeep and shouted at his enemies that since Tulsipur people are gentlemen unlike the Krishna Nagar gundas, they are returning these girls with dignity. The enemy gang didn’t taunt back surprising him. He waited patiently looking at him for some illogical or delusional punch dialogues, but even after a solid two minutes, nothing can be heard. They both are talking among each other in low voices. He got bored and looked at others who came with them. He got more surprised on seeing Sumati ma. It’s been years since he had last seen her. He felt happy instantly but the next moment confusion filled him on seeing her worried face. Why is she worried? Wrong! The right question should be why she is here first of all. As long as he knows, she never comes out of Thakumaa’s haveli.His thoughts got interrupted when he heard a commotion behind him. He turned and found the girl of yellow salwar struggling to get down from the jeep. Oh, goodness. He forgot about the deed that brought him here. Well, wrong again. The thing that brought him here is just sitting patiently and looking at him while her partner struggles for quick freedom. He is annoyed now. Seriously, this pink girl should need to stop looking at him. But, does she even looking at him? He would not know. What if she is blind and just facing a side where he happens to stand?He slowly moved five feet away on his left side and her face turned along with him. Oh! Without making any noise, he returned to his position and her face followed his position. Eureka! She is definitely looking at him and not blind too. He blinked. Of course, she is not blind. He knows Chandrachur is stupid but not so stupid to send a blind girl on a spy mission. He turned towards his enemies and they are still discussing something. He got annoyed more. What is important than shouting punch dialogues to your archenemy? Before he loses all his brain cells, he decided to end this nonsense and get back to his bed to get a peaceful sleep.He loudly ordered his guards to let free the girls and this brought his enemies’ attention towards him. Good! He turned back to give a last glance to his passing pink cloud. She was still looking at him when getting down from the jeep and hence stumbled on her feet shaking his soul as well. In an instant, the girl in yellow salwar caught the pink girl’s hand and steadied her. He exhaled in relief. This is the only useful thing the girl in yellow salwar had done so far.He turned front and found everyone giving different emotions. He doesn’t want to overthink burdening his already loaded brain and hence just sticking to his routine of giving warnings, he started talking loudly.The world stopped suddenly making him stop as well in mid-speech and his breath hitched on her touch. The pink girl touch! Her hands slightly grazed him while passing, but that is enough to bring him back all the memories he kept locked inside his mind palace. He shuddered in possibility. Before he stops himself, his hand acted on its own and caught her hands. She stopped and turned back. He could sense some commotion from his enemy’s side but his focus is fully on the veiled face alone.He moved a little forward and removed the black cloth covering the pink girl’s face. He could see her eyes now and it is strikingly familiar. He tried to read those eyes but failed miserably since the more he looked at them, the more he got lost in them. His heartbeat is raising so much that for a moment he believed that it is going to burst.He could not take any more of this anticipation and hence moved closer to her. He could smell her now and before it could cloud his thoughts altogether, he started slowly untying the knot of the cloth on her mouth. For some reason, this brought him back the memory of his marriage.Before he could analyze the reason behind it, the cloth fell revealing a beautiful face. Definitely, not a witch but still mesmerizing though. She smiled at him and his heart raced faster as if that is even possible.“Saka Babu!” She called out and his eyes widen in realization. She called out again and as always he moved towards her like a moth to the fire. His world is back and he won’t let anyone separate them, this time._______________________________How was it?
