RANGRASIYA: THE DARKEST NIGHT…JULY 30th 2014
It’s dark gnarly fingers
Extended out to snatch
The life I held so dear
The one chance at happiness
But cruel were its fingertips
That night had no soul
It sucked away the warmth
And let my blood run cold
So now I am dead but alive
So now I breathe but gasp for air
So now I’m doomed to survival
But the darkest night it stays
Stays in my mind like a virus
Lying in wait to rear it’s head
It’s eyes are missing
But it’s skin still turns me cold
And forever it’s curse shall last
Till my flesh rots as I grow old
The poem..An ode to the night that swallowed Paro…SHEGARFS RAKHT KI RETH series
A night..as many nights..but a night that was to herald the beginning of life..started in confusion.They were together.Him,his wife and child..sharing visions of the future.They were thinking of their good luck and fortune at having been blessed with this child.Their love felt complete.He was still unsure of how he felt..with regards to him being a father..about parenthood.As any new parent,his unsurity about the mannerisms of being with the baby were endearing.But she..she was so confident,so comfortable..it gave him the sensibility to know that they would be good parents.Such was the strength of her love.It could make him believe.A lot of things.
They had to let go of the moment as he got pulled away to help his family.Another child was to be born.A companion to Dhruv,their son.He offered to take the parents to the hospital.He called her to inform her of the arrival of a new life..a little girl.She was so thrilled to hear it.But a storm brew outside.She heard a thundering and forceful gale.She told him that she hoped Dhruv wouldn’t awake.She said goodbye.The lights seemed to follow the message of the storm.Pitch darkness ensued.She walked Dhruv around ..holding on tight.He got a call.It was news he never wanted to hear.Shantanu had escaped.The only thing as soon as he heard was a large burst of panic…Paro!His first and only concern.Fear followed panic as he made a mad rush to get home.
She went to look for candles to light the path to allow her child to be safe and comfortable.But her search was never to begin…The lightning cracked..thunder sounded and Shantanu stood there.As real as the night and as dangerous as the rising storm outside.But the storm inside was going to change the route of their lives.Her eyes shocked and mouth stunned into silence,she ran..She held Dhruv with every strength she had and her only aim was to protect her child.He followed…walking with strong,calm,determined strides.There was nothing in his way.And he wasn’t going to let anything stop him this time.He was intimidating.All she could do was run..hide..scream in fear.
She finally knew she wouldn’t escape him but she had to try.She had to hide her son.She placed her Rudraksh on his chest.She reassured the little one..nothing would happen to him.She was afraid and had to think fast on her actions.She reached for a phone and started to dial.But as fate had intended,the doors to the room burst open.And there he stood…DEATH…knocking at her door.He asked her how long she would run..she must be tired.IT WAS TIME…Shantanu proclaimed…time to give her feet and her breath a break….he lifted the gun to Paro…The closet door where she had placed Dhruv was open just a crack…the baby a helpless innocent,unaware of the threat to his mom..lay quietly on his mattress tucked away from sight.
Major Rudra Pratap Ranawat had known fear and panic….but that was chronic and this night..those feelings were like live wire!He arrived banging on his own front door…PARO!!!PARO!!!!He was screaming…trying to raise his voice above the raging storm outside.He finally made his way in and saw the silhouette of the man he never wanted near his family…Shantanu walked away in the dark …but The Major shouted….AYE!!!! Not giving him as much respect as dirt would get.He was still around to protect his family..yelled Rudra!He wasn’t going to let the devil do anything to them!He struck Shantanu once with a powerful punch..twice and was to attempt more…but was stopped powerfully by Shantanu’s stretched out out hands asking him to stop.THOSE HANDS WERE DRENCHED IN BLOOD!
The owner of the bloodied hands feigned shock!Major Rudra wasn’t acting!Aaah…Major,what’s this?Whose blood is that?!..Is it mine he said surprised…or is it yours?He asked of Rudra.Doesn’t look like either of ours!The cells in Rudra’s mind fired rapid devastation signals!You could see his mind being crushed under the Tsunami of Dread and horror!!Who’s blood…there’s so much blood..Shantanu continued to talk..Slowly he ran his bloody hand over the cheek of Rudra..savor ing his expression..his revenge edging completion…he wiped both his hands down the front of the white pure shirt that Rudra wore.He explained how he had to clean all this blood.Rudra’s jaw hardened and twitched..Something was horribly wrong..something had happened!!The realization…was like a stab through his heart with a glass knife!WHAT DID YOU DO,YOU SCOUNDREL?!!..Screamed Rudra.Shantanu’s evil laughter resounded through the Ranawat home…he reminded Rudra of how he had warned him not to leave him alive…now he had paid for that mistake!!What did you do?!..screamed Rudra again…and his body angered,enraged,eyes glistening with his worst fears coming true…he pulled out his gun and loaded it…and with all the strength and hatred he could spare ,Major Rudra pratap Ranawat..emptied a bullet through the sick heart of Shantanu.Shantanu’s smile faded and a stony expression occupied his face.He slumped into a chair..on his way to hell!
Next second Rudra shot through the home calling out to his life,his happiness,his wife..PARO!!PARO!!He crashed into the doors to that cursed room.He heard the cry of his son..Dhruv..he immediately found him hidden inside the vilest..wrapped up and in tears!He reassured his baby..DONT WORRY DONT WORRY..PAPASA IS HERE..LOOK I’m here!..sssh!Then called out again..PARO!!Pa….He didn’t need to look any further..He was shocked to silence as he saw his Paro lying on the floor in a river of blood!It took a second for the image to drink in..He rushed to her died urgently!!He was shaking with Dhruv in his hands!Paro!he called as he sat next to her..picked up her head and placed it in his lap…Paro,let’s go!I’mhere!Get up ..he shivered..he was panicking!She stirred and turned to look at him..barely conscious and obviously in pain..OUR SON..she mumbled..Is our son alright?!She asked.Rudra reassured her that he was fine..I AM HERE..LOOK HE IS FINE..LOOK!Anything to bring her comfort!He just wanted to pick her up and take her to the doctor!CHAL PARO..UTTH..DOCTOR KE PAAS CHALTE HAIN!!Hr body was in pain..she was trembling..he could not take it!His voice now traumatized and full of apology…I WAS JUST A LITTLE LATE..JUST A LITTLE LATE I GOT..he kept explaining to Paro…She held his comforting arms with hands full of blood from the shot wounds in her body…listen to me..there isn’t much time..she tried to make him understand..But Rudra wasn’t there in this relationship to accept her parting words..he wasn’t even close to thinking about her not existing..it wasn’t going to happen..he denied listening to her feeble voice..but she held his arms firmly and wanted him to pay attention…Remember,she said,I always want you to remember that YOU ARE A VERY GOOD PAPASA…I want you to promise me that you will ALWAYS..try to stay happy with our son.He said he doesn’t know how…Just let’s go Paro..get up..at least get up then we will talk…Refusing to accept this as their fate..as the end to their love…NO..NOOOOO..
Paro continued in almost a whisper now…One more thing,she said…Yes..yes Paro tell me..tell me anything..as long as it kept her with him…But it would be left unsaid..those last thoughts that Paro wanted to share with him..He would never know what that last thing was…as he breath left her…
AND PARVATI RUDRA PRATAP RANAWAT DEPARTED THIS WORLD…in the lap of her husband and their child wailing in his loudest voice.A very stunned Rudra sat there motionless.Unable to comprehend what had just occured.Dhruv screamed at his mothers loss…as if he really knew she had left…and his little fists reached out for his fathers face.PARO,GET UP!!Get up Paro!Look he’s crying…said a numb Rudra.I can’t handle him by myself…GET UP AND MAKE HIM STOP…he continued…but the tears were not to be held back and then the flood of pain and the grief of his heart poured out…raging through his every fiber…his loss was greater than any he had witnessed in his life…cause this time..HE BLAMED HIMSELF….He buried his face into the body of his crying baby…both symbolically holding each other for support.
All he could say repeatedly was…I WAS TOO LATE…he later found some comfort in his mothers lap…but the funeral pyre..he told Bapusa yet again…WHY DID I NOT COME ON TIME?Why did I come late!And both his parents kept assuring him that..it wasn’t his fault..he want to blame for wht transpired.But Rudra Pratap Ranawat made a promise to that fire…I WILL ALWAYS KEEP YOU WITH ME,PARO…I WILL NEVER EVR LET YOU GO!A promise he absolutely intended to keep!He wasn’t going to let fate snatch his memories of Paro…and he would keep her alive in his heart and mind forever!
NOTE::As a huge fan of Rangrasiya and Parud,I know how difficult it has been for us fans to live through this moment and this episode.I know what grief and heart break it left us with.But as an ardent devoted fan of Paro…how could I let this shattering moment go..and let Paro our beloved character leave and let her sacrifice be unwritten?!I simply could not!And hence,I decided to pay tribute to her loss and the enormous loss of Rudra and Dhruv in my post on this episode..which will truly never be forgotten!~Shegarf
The origin of the song in my edit is below….
Yeh Raat Yeh Raat
Jali Ki Chipkali Raat
Kadi Aur Kombdi Ki Raat
Na Ugli Hi Jaye Na Nigli Hi Jaye
Yeh Kali Zehrili Raat
Pal Pal Balkhaati Pal Pal Uljaati
Palke Jhapakti Yeh Raat
Sannate Ki Sij Pe Soye
Saap Si Sarakti Raat
Yeh Raat Yeh Raat
Jali Ki Chipkali Raat
Kadi Aur Kombdi Ki Raat
It’s from the movie AKS…called Yeh Raat.Thank you for having the heart to read this post.
