The House Next Door: Excellent Horror Suspense Thriller movie

No! Don’t raise your brows, I am not going start Movie Review section. But I am just excited by this good horror movie I saw last night, which actually meant HORROR after a long time. It’s basically a story about a Neurosurgeon Krish and a possessed girl Jenny D’costa in the neighbourhood. The movie begins with steaming hot chemistry and lovemaking scenes between Krish and his wife Lakshmi. They seem to live a blissful life which is disturbed when D’costas move in.

The actual genre starts moving when the D’costas have a housewarming party, where Jenny jumps into the well followed by Krish who jumps in to save her. Thereon Jenny starts behaving weirdly with her possessions like jumping off the cliff and so on. Further, both the families are entangled between the series of scary and knee-jerking incidents happening around. Finally a psychiatrist, a local pastor, a tantrik, and neurosurgeon gang to help the troubled child.

The sound effects, the visuals give a sudden shiver due to satanic originated fear pulling the hell out of us. The best role goes to Anisha Victor(Jenny), who makes you cringe when she is possessed by the evil spirit but also grabs your sympathy after returning to sanity.  Till date Horror in Bollywood was not much explored and experimented to an extent. But Milind Rau prefers to make you shudder in your seat with deft camera movements, some very scary close-up sequences and, of course, special effects which, again, Rau has used efficiently. The movie has a touch of ‘Exorcism of Emily Rose’ and ‘Insidious’, but the director has very well knit together paranormal elements and shocking scenes into an interesting plot.

I believe a HORROR movie is a HORROR one when it gives you that burst of adrenaline rush or may churn your stomach.This movie keeps you on the edge of your seats, with great VFX, coupled with some splendid performances by the entire star cast and not to mention, breathtakingly beautiful locales of the Himalayan valley.

But finally, the show stealer was Anisha Victor(Jenny) for her brilliant performance. If she didn’t play it well the entire movie would have been ruined. On a closing note, it is surely a shiver giver movie into my fav segment. That’s the reason I decided to share my experience with my readers towards this excellent movie after a long long time which is anytime better than Conjuring2, Lightsout and Anabelle 2.

I personally would rate it 4/5.

Selfless Stranger #8

Winters approaching we people in India are so fascinated by the outdoor trips, warm clothes, tender sunlight everything seems romantic. The chilled morning breeze sent a shiver through Naina’s body. Even after wearing her warm red and black closely knitted winter jacket she appeared to be shivering. But in spite of the weather, she seemed to be full of energy with her team at the office trip at Goa. Team bonding activities kept everyone busy. It was a beach theme game where each team had to randomly collect the items listed on their to-do list. The team which finishes its task first would be the winner. There was a table placed beside the shack for the members to have their breakfast on the run. Some of the members were still carrying their previous night hangover.

Naina was busy running all over to gather the items mentioned so that her team could win. Amit stood away and observed Naina and her cheer for the team. He went into the flashbacks of the time they spent together. Naina and her full of life attitude, her special care for Amit, her past, her fighting spirit everything seemed so perfect. He always dreamt of a partner with such qualities. His friends teased him for dreaming about Naina. He had decided to admit his love for Naina in a special way.

In the evening, all the friends had planned to opt for shopping, since the next morning they were about to leave for Mumbai. Amit approached Naina for a short beach walk. She readily agreed. Walking along the beachfront Naina insisted to walk through the waters. She removed her footwear and proceeded with Amit. He spoke,” Naina, from the time of I, have known you, I am amazed by your fighting spirit, generosity, and modesty. As the days have passed by, I have closely witnessed each petal of your personality bloom to its utmost beauty. Do not get me wrong if I ask you something.” Naina looked nervous, she looked away from him towards the sunset. But Amit continued, ” Look I am not sure if I would be the right person to accompany you, but I am pretty sure you could always rely on me, rather trust me. I might not be able to meet all your expectations towards life but what I have learnt from you I return it to you. I have learnt that you love and enjoy every bit of your life, your personality, freedom and so do I. Would it be possible for you to give life a second chance towards commitment? I really love you….but my words fall short here since I am not a poet or writer to glue my feeling together into a souvenir of love. You can, of course, take your time and am absolutely ok with whatever your answer would be.” Naina turned towards Amit looked into his eyes with happiness but also with a number of interrogations. Amit handed her a box beautifully wrapped in red satin ribbons. She opens it in front of Amit without uttering a word.

On opening the box, tears roll down her eyes. She couldn’t believe her wish come true. Staring at the box, she moves further and hugs Amit to thank him for his gesture which no one could have ever thought of…..

 

Any guesses what was in the box???

With that question, I end the series of “Selfless Stranger”….Your feedbacks are always welcome.

Gathering all the courage Amit made an attempt to ask Naina’s father about her condition. He looked at Amit and thought for a while. After a long silence, he asked Amit if he would be interested to walk through their garden. Amit readily agreed, Naina was busy serving breakfast but her father asked her to continue as they would have breakfast after a while. She looked at Amit and smiled. Her eyes looked through Amit, as if they were trying to communicate with his eyes. But the unknown pain in Naina’s eyes disturbed Amit. He walked out towards the garden with her father. 

Walking for a while Naina’s father spoke,”Naina is a very optimistic, fun loving and caring person. I say this not only because she is my daughter but have also seen her carrying a role of supportive and understanding wife.” Amit was shaken with his words, he couldn’t believe his ears “WIFE” ! These words made him uneasy. Her father spoke further,”Naina was married to Rakshit, her childhood friend two years ago. They made a perfect couple, so much that we could never imagine either of them without the other one. They were so happy and inseparable that everyone who knew them would envy of them. But one fine day, Naina went missing, we tried reaching out Rakshit but couldn’t contact him. No one had a single clue about the duo. Suddenly, I received a call from the police station to identify some of the belongings they found. We all were terrified. On reaching the hospital we acknowledged the ring and earring Naina wore. It was Naina in a very bad condition unable to recognize we all were shattered looking at her wounds, her darkened blue black scars. We just collapsed and then the police inspector told us that they found her on the JV road causeway. Some passerby reported of a body in a bad condition. She was bought unconscious and was in coma. Since she was stabbed,beaten up and brutally raped. Also she was run over by a car due to which her legs had to be amputated. We are waiting for her to come back to senses so that we could record her statement and arrest the culprit.” Her father almost collapsed while narrating the horror story. Amit too lost the strength to stand. Since morning his life was giving him a rollercoaster ride. He was feeling numb. Controlling his emotions her father spoke,” Naina was out of coma after around 15 days. She was barely able to move or even utter a word. But my daughter, never cried in front of me. We managed to ask her about the happenings and she broke down. She told us about the domestic violence happening through the past days. But she never let us know anything. It was Rakshit and his psychopath mentality which destroyed my daughter’s life. He always illtreated Naina at home but not publically. Naina was in love with him madly. She thought of it at his way of loving and possesiveness. But it was not true, he just had physical lust for my daughter. That rascal turned into a demon when he forced my daughter to have sex with all his friends. As Naina denied, she was beaten up, raped by those scoundrels and run over by a car so that she couldn’t approach anyone and left to die at the corner of a random street.” All this was extremely horifying, Naina’s father was is in deep anguish. Amit just couldn’t understand the way he should react or even console her father. There was distress in garden. Suddenly Amit could feel as though the garden rotated around and would soon form a tornado to engulf the world.

Coming back to senses her father whispered,” My daughter has great fighting spirit and is a lively human being. She recovered after about 6 months, continued with her passion for dancing and her job. It was very difficult for her to resume or even choose  a job. But she decided to move on with her life without looking behind.”

Amit placed his hand on her father’s shoulder. They just looked at each other….

Amit recognised Naina’s father, the same old man he helped by donating blood for his young son suffering from an accident. Also he was stunned to discover this girl was the same Naina he helped by returning her cellphone. Naina’s father also made Naina aware of the fact that Amit was the same young lad who went out of the way to help her family. The atmosphere turned extremely emotional and full of gratitude. Her eyes depicted the mixture of compassion and emotion ready to cross the smudged boundaries of her innocent eyes. She just sat down wrapping her face with her palms. “This world is so small Dad”, Naina spoke. 

With heavy throat she turned towards Amit and folded her hands to thank him. He was in very akward position to accept apologies and thankyou from Naina. After unwrapping the puzzle happening around the past few days, Naina asked Amit to relax and went out to her room in order to freshen up. Till then Amit walked towards the washroom to freshen up. A fresh aroma of boiling ginger tea and spicy tempered poha filled the house. Her dad was busy preparing the breakfast. Amit wondered and was excited to feel at home here at Naina’s place. He walked towards the kitchen and offered help. But her dad happily denied and asked him to relax at the dining area. Amit walked towards the dining area and glanced through the froyer occupied by trophies, different photographs of Naina in various dance forms. The airy and brightly lit living area danced and boasted about Naina and her versatility with expertisein dance. He was feeling like floating around in a hydrogen balloon. The mild instrumental music playing in the background wiped off the stress layer built up. 

Thud….thud there was a loud breakdown sound. As though someone or something fell from a height. Amit and Naina’s father ran towards Naina’s bedroom. They pushed open the door to find Naina collapsed on the floor with two prosthetic legs fallen aside. Amit was thunderstruck by this scene. He couldn’t believe his eyes, his body went numb. But quickly coming back to his senses they held her and placed her on the wheel chair. Amit was still in immense shock, it felt like he had lost strength and capability to walk.

Naina smiled back and said,” C’mon dad you don’t have to be upset I was rehearsing my dance steps…..you simply get scared.”

Monsoons in Mumbai were on the verge of drowning the city. Naina asked Amit the reason for his late departure from office. He informed her about the long induction videos also that he was unaware about the havoc of monsoons in Mumbai. She felt very poor for him and then asked him where exactly he stayed. “Bandra”…she teased him “where in Bandra? Mannat or Star Galaxy….?” He looked at her in surprise…Naina seemed to be in a light mood. “Nope, Teachers Colony, besides St. Gracious School, Bandra East”, Amit replied. She was driving in an elegant manner despite of the traffic and water logging areas. Dodging through hurdles race, they reached at a junction where it seemed as though the entire city was floating on the Arabian sea. The condition outside was worst, endless vehicular population and resulting pollution, BEST buses lined up, black and yellow taxis, private cabs, two wheelers all sailing in the same direction. Its was around 10pm but the condition outside was getting deadlier. The shining and trailing rain droplets gliding on the windscreen gave a vibrant reflection on Naina’s glowing face. Her childish expressions amazed Amit to discover her innocence. She lowered the window beside her and enjoyed the rain drops falling through her palms. Just then the FM played,”Mohbbat barsa dena tu, sawaan aaya hai….”. Amit rested back and admired Naina’s beauty being glorified by the Monsoons. Her partially faded lipstick, smudging kohl and light fragrance mesmerised him. 

“I am feeling hungry, what about you?” Naina asked. Amit replied assertively. “I don’t think we are proceeding anywhere atleast for next couple of hours or may be tonight. But I am damn hungry…I wish we get some delicious pakoda or smoking hot vada pav with ginger tea.” Amit wished to get it for her whatsoever and suddenly caught a glance of a roadside vendor deeping frying vadas. He immediately moved out of the car without even a second thought. Coming back with newspaper wrapped wada pav and salted fried green chilli alongwith 2 cutting chai. By the time he reached the car, Amit was drenched but looked excited about achieving the utmost trophy. Naina exclaimed,” OMG Amit…you are just impossible…we could have asked the vendor to send it to our car…why did you step out.” She looked worried for him, unwrapping her scraf, she handed it over to him. Her concern and especially tugging and embracing her scraf …. flew butterflies in his stomach. She parted both the ends of the bread or pav and tucked the hot and spicy wada and offered him. Sipping the ‘garam chai’ and smuffing her fragrance through her scarf hypnotized Amit. He enjoyed the song playing on FM “Yeh Shyaam Mastani….”

It was going to be midnight but they were not even able to move an inch. Both of them informed their guardians and made themselves comfortable in the car… Naina turned off the car and went asleep on the backseat. Amit wondered and prayed to God begging him not to stop the rains for the next 24 hours. He was just enjoying this favorable natural calamity which proved to be a boon for him. 

His sleeping beauty resembled the young princess from wonderland. Her eyes soft and calm, small and cute smile on her lips even in her dreams. Amit was nowhere feeling drowsy or sleepy. He warned himself to stay awake in order to protect this princess resting on the backseat. He pecked through all the directions, to check if any unwanted elements could disrupt Naina’s sleep.

Early morning when Naina woke up due to the jerks she was astonished to discover Amit driving through the traffic moving at snails pace….Naina was amazed to learn about Amit’s excellent driving skills. It was near about Naina’s residence, Amit stopped and greeted her,” Gud morning ma’am I mean Naina. Naina was so happy to be back home she invited Amit for coffee. Amit readily agreed and drove through the parking of her residence. They went upstairs and waited for someone to answer the door bell. 

Naina’s dad opened the door. Amit as well as Naina’s dad were stunned meeting each other…..

Stayed tuned to see what happens next…

The day finally arrived when Amit was supposed to join his second family i.e OFFICE. Being his first day, he decided to be over punctual so he reached office at 8.55am. The housekeeping staff and security agent misunderstood him to be a salesperson and didn’t allow him to enter the office. Amit tried to convince them and suddenly realised about the joining letter. On verifying the joining letter he was allowed in. The security guard smirked and said,”Aaj pehla din hai na kal se sab thik ho jayega.” Amit greeted him and entered. The housekeeping staff were busy with their routine cleaning activities. Occupying the sofa at the lobby area, he picked up the freshly arrived newspaper,it was stamped. Amit was kind of irked by the office assistant’s promptness. The office assistant offered him machine made coffee and made him comfortable. After about one hour, he enquired about the regular timings of the office staff. The guy with large spectacles and high waist pant with a tucked in shirt spoke in a blunt tone without even looking at him,”9 to 6.30, but these guys have informally modified it to 10.30 to whatever they like”. 

By 10.30 people started arriving, each one was grumbling about the uncertain rains and issues they faced while travelling. Some of them also discussed about their plans if the rains continued till the evenings,” Marine drive chalenge, party karenge bhai, blah blah…” Amit wondered how did these guys have confidence on the predictions of rains. Anyways, Amit was called by the Hr executive Liza one of the typical South Mumbai girls. She visually scanned Amit top to bottom and raised an eyebrow questioning,” You are the new joinee….ok please handover your documents and take a seat at cubicle 45 north.” Before Amit could respond she went back swiping the access card. Amit looked puzzled which documents? handover to whom? And how do I enter the office area without the access also how do I find this cubicle? Why was she so fast with her instructions or may be I am slow, people here are busy….he spoke to himself.

Amit gathered all the documents, requested the office guy to help him with the access door. On the entrance, Amit witnessed an extremely large office floor divided into rows and columns with all different numbers and directions. Left side aligned the conference rooms and glass enclosed cabins, right opposite to the conference room was the HR bay. He was unable to locate Liza, next moment he was distracted by the same fragrance and he knew it was Naina. In business formals and an ever smiling face, she looked like one of those corporate models. Naina noticed Amit and gave him a warm welcome smile. She observed Amit waiting at Liza’s desk for quite a while. She approached Amit and asked him if he needed anything. Amit told her that he was waiting for his joining formalities. On knowing that Amit had reached office so early and he was waiting since morning, got her to work. She called up Liza and asked her to report immediately. Liza appeared after couple of minutes, she questioned Liza in a sharp authorative, ” Why are his joining formalities pending? I had sent an email informing you about his joining but I don’t see anything done yet. Liza arrogantly answered,”I was busy with some other work will get this done now.” Asking her to hurry up she walked back to her cabin assuring Amit that Liza would get things done. Liza whispered,” Think of the devil…..”

After finishing the joining formalities, there was a small welcome and introduction ceremony. Amit was handed over the welcome kit and bouquet of flowers by Naina. He was extremely delighted by her warm gesture….he looked at the the flowers and thought of them as the most precious and fragrant flowers of his life. He was offered complimentary lunch by the office, Naina asked him if he was comfortable. The concern and hospitality shown by Naina…reminded him of his Mom who always was worried for him, about his lunch. Amit experienced privileged treatment and was just floating in his own world with Naina.

Just then he heard someone whispering,” Bakre ko halaal karne se pehle….”. He couldn’t understand the pessimistic attitude of people around. Amit was busy going through his induction videos, since Liza had asked him go through all the videos which contained the company policies. Once he was done it was late around 7.45, he noticed there was no one in the office except for the housekeeping staff. He left the office and reached at exit gate where he saw that it was raining heavily outside. He decided to walk towards the bus stop. While he was walking a silver Honda Amaze stopped by and soft feminine voice spoke,” Lift?”. Naina peeked out of the window and Amit jumped with the idea of travelling with her. Without a second thought, he got in….

Stayed tuned for more updates….Mumbai rains are really very unpredictable.😉

Traffic sucks in Mumbai especially during weekend nights. Seems like people are just dying to party hard. But for most of office going crowd its all about movies, pubs and dine out era. Crossing all the hurdles of traffic and parking queues Amit and his friends reached the Cinemax multiplex at Bandra kherwadi. They checked in at the security gate and rushed towards the popcorn corner. On entering the Screen 2 audi they were surprised to see the seats occupied completely inspite of it being the third week of the movie ‘Tanu weds Manu Returns’, the lights went out before they could reach or even trace their seats. Struggling with the camera lights and row numbers they finally reached their destination. But they discovered their seats to be engaged by a trio. In puzzled yet soft whispers Amit asked them ,” Could you please help us with your seats numbers?” On quite a mini investigation the trio found out that their seats were a row below the one they were currently occupying. Suddenly Amit got a whiff of the same fragrance during his interview encounter, Naina……but in the middle of these misunderstanding he shrugged off. In an apologetic tone they changed their seats and settled down. Amit and group had lost the beginning but quickly occupied their seats and then began the epic scene where  “Kangana and Madhvan discussed their complaints with the counsellor”. What a scene, there was a roar of laughter, people whistled and applaud their performances. Every married person in the hall could relate to the couple on screen.

Amit noticed this girl among the same trio, she was laughing and also tapping on the back of her companions. They seemed to be pulling her leg. During the movie her whispering tone caught Amit’s attention he was trying to relate her to Naina. But could not recognize her because of the darkness in the hall. She rested her head onto the shoulders of one of her friends. Amit could no way concentrate on the movie, his friends witnessed him watching over this girl …they started teasing him over the distracted gesture. He asked them to shutup and continue watching the movie.

He wondered is she Naina? If yes who are the other two guys her friends, brother or someone special. He tried to have a sharper look but realized his friends watching over hence decided to move on with the movie and check out during the interval. The character known as Papiji in the movie and his epileptic attack again broke thunders of laughter. His one liners motivated people to whistle out of appreciation. After a while the lights were on and INTERVAL showed on the screen.

Amit walked down to get coldrinks. On his way down he turned back and was shocked to realize it was Naina. Her head was still rested on her companions shoulders the other one got up to leave. They had close talks, Amit just couldn’t believe Naina in her figure fitting black top and beige jeans, her lips sparkling and reflecting the yellow lights due to the gloss she wore. The guy with her also looked quite handsome and she seemed to enjoy his company. Amit was dissapointed he was reluctant to go back. But for the sake of his friends he went back. Who is he? was the question which mattered the most.

Amit was uncomfortable watching Madhvan getting close with Datto : kangana’s look alike. It felt as though his heart was pinching. The second half of the movie was too difficult for Amit. His friends watched him get restless, they asked him about the reason. But he flunged a reason about the movie being useless and wanted to go back home. But they coaxed him to stay. After about an hour it was “End” and the audience got up to leave. On the midway stairs Naina caught a glance of Amit and called out. Amit looked at her and gave a fake smile.

She stood their with her companions and waited to speak to Amit. She intoduced him ,”This is Amit, the new recruit of our office and Amit this is Raman my younger brother and this is Anurag my elder brother cum bestest friend. He is going back to Australia tommorow so we guys had to hang out today.” BROTHERS….! shit man how could I misinterpret. Their was a glow on Amit’s face as if he had gulped an energy drink. He just couldn’t cover his happiness, excitement. She asked him and his friends how they found the movie. His friends replied back saying that Amit didn’t like it and wanted to go back. He hesistantly denied saying, ” No no the after experience of the movie was much better.” They looked puzzled at each other. But only Amit knew which after experience he spoke about. He readily took his friends for a treat and they were amazed and surprised with Amit’s crazy behaviour.

On a Monday morning its always extra energy, extra traffic and extra punctual crowd on the roads, trains etc. Amidst all the Monday fever, Amit was all ready for the interview, documents stacked up, couple of rehersals of the interview were conducted in the mens washroom in the front of the large sparkling mirror. Walking out of the washroom towards the waiting area he enquired about his queue number. The receptionist requested him to wait since the senior manager was on call with some client. Amit patiently waited at the lobby area, assuring himself, that he would definitely crack the opportunity. He began revising about the plans and investment options he would explore if he gets the expected package.

Meanwhile, the receptionist calls out his name and asks him to proceed towards the cabin on her left. Amit enters the cabin and greets the manager. The man at other end seemed to be middle aged man in his early forties. He introduced himself,” Hi Amit, myself Rajdeep Arora, how you doing?” Amit smiled and replied back. The introduction phase moved on to professional front. Amit basically was a software engineer with great analytical skills and optimistic attitude. Mr. Arora tested Amit on technical and analytical front. Arora seemed to be well pleased with Amit’s aptitude and attitude towards the case scenarios he put forth. He was asked to wait for the results in the waiting area. Amit was happy with his performance at the interview as well as wished to work with such jolly and motivating manager.

After a while, the receptionist informed him to wait for the HR round as the HR manager was out for lunch. It was lunchtime, Amit was quite nervous for the HR round, because he believed that he possessed poor communication skills which put him down. He prayed deeply to keep up his morale for the final round. Waiting at the lunch hours, he watched people move in and out with their lunch boxes in groups laughing, gossiping, discussing technical issues. Some of them collected their food orders from the security desk. Delicious aroma of different food items especially home cooked made him more hungry. It reminded him, to make a call. He moved out of the office area to make a call. After about fifteen minutes he was back waiting for his turn. Just then he was distracted by the perfume applied by a young girl in red indian formals. She stood at the reception counter and started speaking to the receptionist. Amit just couldn’t get his eyes off her, she didn’t seemed to be one of those extraordinary beauties in the office but there was something which drove his attention, her perfume, her ever smiling face or may be her soft spoken sweet voice.

Amidst the conversation she suddenly realized something and walked towards the cabin. The receptionist then asked Amit to proceed to the same cabin. His heart began pounding as if it was about to break open his rib cage out of his chest. He got very nervous and walked reluctantly towards the cabin. It was the same girl in red churidar, it is impossible to utter a word in her presence he thought himself. She welcomed him and made him feel comfortable with her soothing soft feminine tone. She began enquiring about his previous company, academic qualifications, family whereabouts. Then came the grave question about Salary expectations. Amit just couldn’t understand how to put forth his expectations. Gathering confidence he spoke,” Previously I received a package of 3.5 and now my expectations would be somewhere around 6L per annum.” The HR manager smiled back and went through his salary slips and interview performance reports. But Amit was unable to concentrate on the whole process, her perfume drove him crazy…it had this warm sensuous aroma created to attract the opposite sex. His heart and eyes drew an imaginary boundaries through her virtual figure. Meanwhile she spoke,” Looking at your past records and performance reports you would be a valuable asset for our company. But we have a budget of maximum 5L for this position. Also you would be granted different complimentary allowances. So do let us know what your decision would be.” Without taking a second Amit readily agreed to the offer. She gave him the documents to be submitted while joining and greeted him,” Welcome aboard Amit. Hope you enjoy with your second family here.” His happiness knew no bounds the words family tickled him, he smiled and replied back, “Thankyou so much ma’am.” 

She stood up to leave but turned back and said,” Please call me Naina.” His eyes gleamed and heart jumped in happiness and exclaimed Thanks Naina….

Naina reached office and flipped her wrist to check her in time. Later on she realized that her wrist watch was on leave today sitting on her bedroom window. So she opened her handbag to pull out her cellphone which could serve the purpose. But as it is  well known fact that a girl’s bag is a big mysterious box you never know what all could be sitting inside. After a couple of minutes, she entered panic mode, realizing about the misplaced tragedy of her dear phone.

Her colleagues helped her out by calling onto her cellphone which unfortunately was switched off. Some of her friends turned into CID cops claiming,” kuch toh gadbad hai Naina”. They advised her to call the customer care to block the sim. She promptly agreed and was about to call the customer care but at the same moment her desk phone rang. The person on the other end spoke warmly,” Is it Naina? Myself Amit…have you lost your phone…?” Naina instantly spoke rudely, ” Look Amit, whoever you are don’t even plan of playing with phone its locked and has tracking system activated, cops won’t spare you.” Amit allowed her to finish and then calmly replied back, ” Look Naina before you misunderstand me further, let me tell you I have handed over your phone to your father. Just wanted to inform you hence called you.” He abruptly ended the call, Naina was stunned. There was no way she could call him back, number of questions troubled her. How did Amit know/meet her father? Her phone was switched off/locked, then how did her father come to know about Amit? Firstly how and where did he find it?

She quickly called up her Dad. Her father told her about the series of incidents which occured in last couple of hours. Naina’s brother had met with an accident and was admitted in the hospital. Her father tried reaching her couple of times but after multiple attempts he got to know that Naina had misplaced her phone which landed up with Amit at the ticket counter,  which he had charged. Due to which he could receive her father’s phone call and told them about the device found. Her father sounded tensed hence out of humanity he offered help. Naina’s brother was in need of blood especially the one with group A-ve which was rare. Luckily Amit’s blood group was A-ve, he readily offered to donate blood and then took Naina’s office number to let her know about the phone.

Naina was shocked and extremely guilty about the way she dealt with Amit. This guy from nowhere had gone out of the way to help her family as well without even accepting a word of Thanks. She felt apologetic for Amit and asked her dad about his contact details inorder to thank him for his selfless gesture but the poor guy had not even left his contact details.

Naina was extremely ashamed of her inhumane words towards Amit. She rushed to the hospital to meet her brother who was out of danger now, but could not get rid of the memories of this Selfless stranger….
