Hello wings! Today I am making you walk on my words that is pretty long this time.Yes,it’s a short but a thriller story.I remember seeing this in some TV show in my teens really really long back .So I don’t remember all the details as such,the actual writer has pictured in fantastic way ,I guess my words could be far immature ,but yet I have made an attempt.To be frank ,I understood the story after last episode aired. Hahaha!It’s indeed weird series I have ever seen.This is dedicated to that writer X I don’t remember though.Hope you enjoy it.
And Yeah Wings ,this story may not be understood in one go .As the tag line says it’s from death to life ,hence read slowly so that you can connect the story with the previous lines.
FROM DEATH TO LIFE
A lady jailer in central jail approaches to the cell where Parijatha has been kept since 1.5 approx years .
The Last Page Of The Story
PARIJATHA:108 Convicted for a murder ,sentenced to be hanged for the crime.Today she is summoned for the same .She has a pale face with her white saree on (it’s the uniform for a convicted criminal).She shows no reaction even on hearing this tense news.It looks as if she has lost complete hope in her life or she has no reason to live.She is taken into a dark room(venue to hang criminal) at exactly 11:55 am .The voice of her last breath mixed with sound of clock as it strikes 12 ! .No hero enters ,time doesn’t stop ,no jailer gets any call from higher official as we witness in any melodrama .She isn’t blessed to see new year too.It’s the end of her miserable life.
Who was she actually?Whom did she murder?Was she really a murderer?
The Silence Around and Truth beneath
A jailer approaches the cell with attendants Suhana(Parijatha’s little sister) and a lawyer. Suhana says “Pari,I beg you ” she weeps and continues pointing at the lawyer “He can get you out of here,please speak out what happened on that day” . Parijatha stays still sitting in cell not moving an inch from her place. Suhana says “Pari Please ,at least now don’t do this ,this is our last chance ,Speak up I don’t want to loose my sister,I love you.Please I want you to stay alive for my sake…Please Pari I beg you “She weeps again.Parijatha approaches her ,manages to put her arm out of the bars and comforts her sister .These are the last words she uttered before her death “Su, don’t cry !I am not worth of your tears.I am not your sister too.Forget me,Forget once you had a sister. Parijatha is just a very long dream in your life.She doesn’t exist.I have no identity.I am no one’s family .Please don’t visit me ever again.Please don’t waste your tears on me That’s my last wish I ask you to fulfill ” , She said in blunt tone without winking her eyes once.
Parijatha is a prime suspect of a murder that took place at “Himadri” Villa in Bangalore on 01-01-2016.
Name :Himanshu Singh
Date&Time of death:01-01-2016, 2:30am

Memories to Ponder
Suhana approaches her ,starts her monologue as usual .She says “Raghav you remember ,milkman fell off from his bicycle .All the beautiful ladies near by lifted him,asked if he was fine etc etc… I seriously doubt whether it was an accident or you know what I meant right Pari? Haha!Our neighbor Kamala , Remember! she is blessed with a baby boy ! finally you have a brother Pari,You always wanted a brother right?I am sorry ,I was born as girl.But yeah,I do have capacity to do anything a boy can do”
Suhana recalls :
Pari:Su ,What kind of girl are you? sit still I will pull out the thorn stuck on your feet.
Su:Pari ,I am fine(Pushes hands off)
Pari:Shut up,otherwise I will …….hey look above your favorite star is waving (Pulls out thorn)
Pari:My idiot Su ,Did you actually study astrophysics ?Which star will wave at you ?You live in fantasy world.Wake up!!Hahaha!!
Su:Akka………(She screams angrily)
Suhana continues “Don’t worry Pari ,I will get you out of here”.Parijatha doesn’t utter a single syllable .She remains silent.Her breath is only proof of her being alive . She sits in a corner like a lifeless stone , barely moves , expressionless.Even a rooted tree sways when wind blows expressing it’s happiness.But Parijatha ………

I am sorry .I am helpless .I wanted money for chemotherapy of my brother who is suffering from lung cancer.But I can’t confess ,they will kill me”.Parijatha replies ,”I know ,You can leave” , bluntly, expression less. Milli replies “Didi !If you blame me I will accept it .But I can’t bear your silence.It’s my fault didi!it’s my crime….” she weeps and continues “I will accept your statement whatever you give ,at least this way I can relieve myself from the guilt.I can’t let you die didi!Speak up didi!

Why did she confess the crime she didn’t commit? What made her do so?
A Glimpse Of The Truth
Parijatha in search of evidence ,reaches D&S hospitals ,she passes by the washroom just then she hears someone speaking on phone in the lobby ,she stops…..
XX: Our plan is super success ,finally I own this hospital .Himanshu is such a stupid person.People say “People in love are Mad” , our Himanshu isn’t just a mad he is stupid too.He took the last dosage himself , and died .By the way what is Parijatha doing ?Is she still in zone to prove her innocence? ,which is never possible hahaha.I rather feel pity for her ,Himanshu got himself killed to save her ,and now she is framed for his murder.Poor one,their love couldn’t bring them together ,I hope their death brings these souls together.”
Parijatha is devastated to hear this.She finally realizes reason behind Himanshu being with another lady .Parijatha blames herself for Himanshu’s death.She weeps. Himanshu loved her so much that he killed himself for her sake!!.She doesn’t utter a word.She loses all hope in her life .She decides to take right step.
Searching The Wrong Door
Police visits Parijatha’s home with a search warrant . She screams as to why was her house being searched.She says”I didn’t kill anyone.I have not done anything…..Please believe me …..” She weeps and continues “Please give me time ,I will prove my innocence inspector ….Please “She weeps.
In Search Of Truth
Parijatha and Suhana reach D&S Hospitals and Parijatha ask the receptionist “Where is Dr Kedar ?”.Dr Kedar was Himanshu’s family doctor.She meets Kedar and ask if he could let her see the last medical report of Himanshu. Kedar replies “Pari, You were the first one to see this report .Remember!!! what more do you want to see? You should know better after all you are his personnel assistant” . Parijatha asks “Doctor , Is there anything that you are hiding ?….Please doctor I am a murder suspect doctor ….I need to prove my innocence”. Kedar replies “I know you Pari ,I believe you… you can never kill anyone but all the evidences are pointing towards you , I can’t help”. Parijatha replies “Doctor I feel strange, Himanshu had fever for about 8 weeks before his death and he never showed any improvements , but he was never admitted to the hospital and his blood reports showed he had normal flu.How can normal flu lasts for weeks? Doctor! you said he had less immunity hence would take a long time to cure ,moreover autopsy report says different story ,it says Himanshu’s death was due to choke.I was there all the time and no one entered room ” .Kedar replies” flu was normal one ,his blood test didn’t reveal anything to worry before I left to USA a week before ,Nurse Milli took care then “
A Shocking Report

He shows up with a girl .And introduces her as his girlfriend to his Uncle Karan.Parijatha catches this sight ,she is shocked to see him with another women.She is infuriated and heads straight towards him .
Parijatha :”Himu how can you cheat on me? Was this your so called love?”
Himanshu:”Pari!Just shut up ,You are no more than a secretary . I just spent time with you and I cared about you as a secretary that’s all.It was your misunderstanding of my care as love and stuffs”
Parijatha:”Himu !Stop it! What is wrong with you? You loved me more than I do myself. You could sense my mood ,read my thoughts ,you always missed me .Did you forget all that? Himu tell me , Is anybody forcing you? Is there anything you are hiding? Himu ! Answer me !You can’t say that you don’t love me !I don’t believe you”

Parijatha:” I never expected ,I would say this , Mr Himanshu Singh!! but let me tell you this , I had once told you I hate people who change their color , today you join the same list Mr Owner ,right? But let me tell you one last thing , I had loved you wholeheartedly ,now since I have a valid reason for this break up ,I will make sure I will hate you wholeheartedly too.You are my life’s longest nightmare ,I will never see you again.Take this as my resignation.Goodbye Mr Himanshu Singh!!! “
Parijatha stormed out of his house without looking back again.Himanshu smiles with contentment and tells the girl that her work is done ,she can leave .He goes to his room takes his injection lying ready on the table.
Date:25- 12 -2015
Uncle Karan: “Himanshu how are you ? “
Himanshu :”Yeah ! I am ok, Just a little weakness probably because of fever , else I am dashing ,you know !!Haha!”
Uncle Karan:” I am sorry son ,I shouldn’t ask this specially when you are sick but it’s urgent ,I need few signatures Himu , all the work is delayed and we haven’t given New Year bonus to the employees so….”
Himanshu:”It’s fine! You are right our employees should have their bonus on time .Give me the papers” . Uncle Karan gives the paper .He signs them.
At 9:00pm ,Everybody is asleep.Himanshu wakes up to drink water as the jug was empty he goes towards kitchen.He hears feeble voices of someone ,he feels strange ,he follows the voices ,he finds Nurse Milli who gives him daily injection to reduce his fever speaking with Uncle Karan and next to him is his Aunt Reena (Uncle Karan’s wife) at the lobby.He tries to eavesdrop their conversation hiding behind a wall.
Nurse Milli:”Sir ! I can’t do this anymore. I am dying inside . I can’t betray Himanshu Sir anymore.I can’t kill a patient being a nurse myself”
Karan:”Shut up !Milli ,You can’t back out now .You better know I am your brothers doctor. It’s very easy ,anyway he is in 2nd stage of cancer , all I have to do is to delay his surgery a little more”
Nurse Milli:”Sir ! Please sir , You can’t do this to my brother .He is my only family .Please!”She weeps.
Himanshu is perplexed , he doesn’t understand what was going on? He decides to ask directly .He approaches to the lobby .Karan and Reena are stunned to see him.
Himanshu :”I heard your conversation Uncle ! All your safes are open ! You can’t hide anything . Now tell me why are you trying to kill me? “.
Reema(Uncle Karan’s wife) & Karan shocked.
Reema says to Karan:”It’s no use Karan, he heard everything ,better tell the truth to this poor guy who will anyway die in no time! Haha!”
Karan:”You are right ,I ‘ll tell him truth ,it’s a better way.Now I can see helplessness in his eyes before his death.My revenge will be then avenged in full essence.”
Himanshu:”Now shut up! what are you talking about?why the hell will I die? Now that I know you evil faces … Do you even call yourself a doctor?What is wrong with you?”
Karan:”Shut up !Himu , Do you even realise you are counting your days? .You have hepatitis B Himu! Hahaha! And moreover you have crossed the stage of cure too.You will die no matter what ! Now just do as I say .I will let you have a peaceful death”
Himanshu:”what! Hepatitis B!HOW!!!”
Karan: “Hahaha! Last month you had passed out in lobby , you thought it’s weakness ,but it wasn’t I had injected myself hepatitis B virus into your body. That’s how you had fever and fatigue all the time.
When your father died ,he inherited all his property to you , not a single penny he left for me.I asked your father to at least help in building a small clinic for our future sake.But your father didn’t help .He is stingy and shrewd person.So I thought of snatching whatever I need from you at any cost.And I did succeed .Hahaha!Look at you ,you are naive ,and you believed me and ended up digging your own grave.
I asked my US friend about this virus ,this disease doesn’t show noticeable symptoms . Even Dr Kedar doesn’t know about this .Don’t worry your postmortem report will also be taken care off.Hahaha! You were suffering from fever hence I made an arrangement of this Nurse Milli ,I gave her money to inject you daily Hepatitis B virus.You continued with the injection thinking it as a medicine for your fever.Now you don’t have a comeback even though you run to the hospital . It’s too late !”
Himanshu was devastated hearing this ,completely shattered.
He says: “Why !You could have asked me ,I would have given you property assets whatever. Now who will take care of my grandparents after me!why did you do this to me?” He kneels down crying.
Karan: “It’s good , Since you know the truth , Milli you can go now .Himu ! Since you know already ,take your dosage of injection yourself .I need not worry to give you medicine.You better know ! It’s me ,who will be with your grandparents…so I think you understood right?. They are old and senile , I have nothing to do with them unless you obey my words”
Himanshu gets enraged , he says:”Dare you touch them! You better know they hold the power of all my assets ,it’s in their hands not you.Ohh Didn’t you know that ?Hahaha!”
Karan:”Nonsense ! It’s not so Himu! Don’t fool me around!”
Himanshu: “Good enough ! You kill me then them and all your dreams will be in hands of “Ray Of Hope” the orphanage .At least this way the mark on your character may fade a little”
Karan immediately calls his lawyer ,and confirms the will .Karan is shocked to hear,everything that Himu said was truth.
He makes another call :”Hello! Neeraj bhai! Salamvalaicom! I have a work for you .” He sends picture of Parijatha .He calls Neeraj bhai again :”Deekho ! this girl lives near Vajpaye nagar police station .You have to kill her and show it as an accident when I tell you do! Ok! Wait for my call!” Other person says “Okay saabji! Jaisa aap kahe!” Himanshu tried but couldn’t eaves drop Uncle Karan’s words.
Karan to Himanshu: “Thanks to you I now realize how precious your grandparents are , they trust me so I needn’t do any hardwork with them.As I said they are senile!Hahaha!But sorry ! Now I can’t delay your death. You better take your injection twice and kill yourself . “
Himanshu: “Hahaha! Uncle Karan ! My grandparents would never give the property to a person who killed their grandson! I will reveal everything to them .What will happen to you Mr Karan? Hahaha! My death is after all not a waste “
Karan: “Himu! I am talented player in this field! Don’t underestimate me! Your girlfriend’s life is in danger .If I give one phone call to my men ,she will be dead.I know very well how much you love her.Don’t you dare tell anything to anyone.Just take double dosage here onwards till you die”
Himanshu: “Why have you involved Pari ?She has nothing to do with this. Uncle Karan I am giving you last warning don’t you touch my Pari!!!”
Karan:”Seriously! You think so.Hahaha! Okay then ,I will not touch her.Cut all ties with her .She is too intelligent ,I don’t want her to spoil my plans .Take your injection sleep ,till you die”
Himanshu helplessly says :”Okay ! I will…..hhhmm…… I will kill myself….”
The Fragrance Of Parijatha Around
Pari and Himanshu on a date in park,
Pari says to Himanshu ” This park is looks too good today right?”
Himu : ” Haha! That’s because I am with you! You know I am magical person! I can do things which no one can !”
Pari: “Shut up ! haha !So you think you are genius ! Should I remind your so called genius achievement .You are such a forgetful person that I have never seen. Last year you forgot your own birthday ,who can do that ?hahaha!”
Himu: “It doesn’t matter as long as you are with me .Hahaha!By the way I have never forgotten yours though , so your birthday is technically mine too.”
Pari:”Ohho !Seriously? How so ?”
Himu: “Simple it is day I met you too 5 years ago , and you are my life ,so the day you are born is the day I found my soul ,till then I was just a soul less body “
Pari:” Hello ! What happened ? Are you alright? Haha ! It looks you are making a death confession to me .Pull yourself together. Can’t you just say me I love you ? Why do you want to bring me and my birthday for this ? haha!”
Himu and Pari are lost in each others eye. Himu says to Pari ” I LOVE YOU PARI”
Pari doesn’t say anything she gives a broad smile that shows her reciprocating acceptance of Himu load and clear !
