Ruk Jaana Nahi - 12th July 2012 Written Update
While a beaming Sanchi is receiving her fair share of applause and flattery, standing at the back in a denim blue kurta, Indu witnesses the entire commotion unhappily.
Hurt and jealous, Indu silently listens to the girls uttering cries of praise for his competitor, while his mama tries to poison his mind 'I told you not to take Sanchi lightly...now, they are not even taking your name...basically, no one is standing with you...sanchi has managed to brainwash everyone...' Indu fidgets in his place uncomfortably, as his mama goes on 'And you want to be kind to her...if you continue to be like this, then no one can stop you from losing these elections'
With his uncle's words beginning to have their desired effect, a vindictive Indu immediately speaks up to amend his uncle's notions 'Indu has never learnt to lose..whatever happens, I'll win these elections'
Having made his point clear, the young man irately looks on at the scenes in front, stylishly standing with his palms on his hips. Taking the cue, the uncle leaves no stone unturned in renewing his attempts to brainwash his nephew 'Wow Indu! Thats the way ahead! I'm here with you to support you..your mama...senior advocate Sadnand Tiwari' Indu flinches in disgust at the mock show of loyalty, but the lawyer continues anyway 'We'll teach this girl such a lesson that she'll be frightened to even think of contesting the elections henceforth...'
Veena is going about her own business buying vegetables, when a few spiteful ladies of the mohalla pounce upon her to carry out their venemous ploy - it comes as no surprise that that the entire provocative act is Radha's doing.
The ladies instigate Veena as to why she was allowing Sanchi to remain at her maternal home despite being a married girl. They then swiftly shift the topic to the more scandalous news regarding the upcoming elections
'Contesting elections against once own husband only brings ill will within the family'
'You are being humiliated and this mohalla is being humiliated too'
'You think about your daughter's welfare all the time...what about your self-respect?'
'What effect will such behaviour have on the remaining daughters and daughters-in-law of this basti?'
'What will society think of a girl who stands elections against her own husband?'
'We don't want our daughters to become like your's...if you want your daughter to live here peacefully, then please ask her to withdraw her name from the elections'
After thoroughly poisoning Veena's mind that politics was no place for a girl, the ladies advice the mother to set her daughter on the right path for the sake of her own family.
Under the guise of false sympathy, Sobha and Radha conclude by reminding Veena that an entry into politics would only sully a girl's name and character beyond repair!
Basically, once a girl loses her name or repute- nothing could be done to repair the damage!
Exhausted by the emotional onslaught, a haggard Veena eventually returns home - only to find Tarachand faithfully defending his daughter's political aspirations over the phone.
'Standing in elections is the birthright of every Indian citizen...so don't threaten me now...I am not afraid of you...'
Sadanand, who is on the other end of the call, warns the anxious father 'I don't threaten only by words...I can put these threats into action too'
Slamming the receiver down, Tarachand walks away in a huff. Neither Sadanand, nor Veena are happy by Tarachand's stance.
Entering the dark bedroom, a concerned Sanchi switches on the light and glances at her mother's forlorn figure 'Why are you sitting in the dark ma' she enquires worriedly
'Are you all right?'
The lady pays little heed to Sanchi's gestures. Still engrossed in recollecting all that the ladies had told her that morning, Venna ponders on the sordid facts about her daughter's bleak future. 'What do you care if I'm alive or dead?' she utters eventually
Sanchi is shocked by her mother's response, but Veena presses on 'I don't want you to fight these elections, that's all!'
Startled by the statement, Sanchi is curious to know why her mother had had a sudden change of heart. To this, Veena angrily confesses that the election would bring nothing but further trouble in her life. Listening to the lady's explanations, Sanchi is not convinced, only infuriating Veena more.
'Till you tell me the truth, I wouldn't do anything you want' the stern Sanchi prods on 'You weren't against all of this before...now what's happened...who's brainwashed you...tell me...'
'No one told me anything...' Veena retorts 'Just consider that I had an insight into the bad ways of politics...so withdraw your name now...or else, I'll give up food and water and my life too...' Veena ends her intimidations on a tearful note.
Unhappy with her mother's sudden yet stubborn change of attitude, Sanchi refuses to relent to the trivial threats 'Fine do what you want...give up food and water...I'll take you to the hospital and forcefully ensure you receive parenteral drips...but till you tell me the truth, I will not back out of the elections!'
While the rebellious girl stands up and walks out of the room irately, Veena is alarmed by her daughter's headstrong demeanour.
The animosity between the mother and daughter continues even next morning at the breakfast table. The adamant Sanchi keeps looking up to her mother for a response, but her gazes are only returned with a hostile silence from Veena.
Their troubled exchanges come to an eventual halt when Tarachand informs Sanchi that he had to leave for Barabanki yet again. Lending his wholehearted support and encouragement to Sanchi's political preparations, the man wishes his daughter well and then leaves the house for Barabanki.
The father's words end up making Sanchi very happy.
However, the mother is not happy at all.
Once Sanchi leaves for college; Veena decides to seek Sobha's ideas and assistance to solve her problems, which the latter only lends willingly!
The ladies' joint pursuit to dissuade Sanchi from contesting the elections leads them up to the throes of the Goswami university. Dragging a hesitant Veena along, Sobha reaches the classroom where Sanchi's election posters were bein prepped and primed.
Watching the arrival of the lady, the students give her a warm welcome.
However, deciding to waste no further time, the mother immediately blurts out her wishes to the group 'I want my daughter to withdraw her name from the elections...I need your help for this'
The lady's words having taken them by profound surprise, the girls ask her curiously 'Why aunty? You should be proud of your daughter'
'I know my daughter is very bright in studies...but this is a responsibility that she cannot handle...I'm her mother and know her better than anyone else...' Veena doesn't seem to happy saying all that she was saying, but still mutters it anyway 'She doesn't do any work at home...she runs away from her responsibilities at home...what work will she do here...so, please don't help her for this cause'
The aggrieved mother is about to walk away from the scene, but Sobha pulls her back to remind her of something she'd forgotten to mention. Turning to face the perplexed crowd of students once again, Veena folds her palms and makes a hesitant plea 'Please don't vote for her...my daughter is not someone who can be trusted...this is all I wanted to say...'
Bewildered by the lady's statements, the students watch in silence as Veena and Sobha make their nervous exit from the place.
Sadanand is bribing someone - probably to miscount the votes and rig the elections.
Indu is wondering (what a mental family he'd got married into) 'Why did Sanchi's mother come to campus to provoke students NOT to vote for Sanchi? Something's wrong and I have to find out what it is' he tells himself, looking ever so dashing in his black kurta!
