Part 1 :
A small boy of about 9 years is running around the palace in glee.
“Baba sa… Dadi sa… jaldi aaiye… dekhiye aaj meri behen anne wali hai” (Father…Grand ma… come soon… see today my sister is going to come)
Dadi sa faked a smile n said, “Nahi kuwar… Humare ghar ladki nahi ladka hoga.” (No Prince… We will have a boy not a girl)
Kuwar “Nahi Dadi sa Maa sa ne mujhse vada kiya tha ke woh mujhe ek behen hi degi” (No grand ma mother promised me that she would give me a sister)
Baba sa who had just finished his meeting n came n saw Kuwar n Dadi sa fighting shouted on Kuwar, “KUWARRR… Aapko kitni bar kaha hai humne ke Maa sa se behas nahi karni chaiye.” (PRINCEEE… how many times have I told u not to argue with Mother)
Kuwar who got afraid of the shout told meekly, “Par baba sa…” (But father…) but couldnt continue as Baba sa continued, “Aur ab aapko iski sazaa milegi.” (And now u will get punishment for this)
Kuwar started shivering hearing that n said, “Hume maaf kar dijye Baba sa. Aage se phir kabhi aisi galati nahi hogi” (Please forgive me Father. I wont repeat this mistake again)
Baba sa, “Nahi Kuwar aaj kal aap bohut galti karne lage hai isiliye aaj toh aapko sazaa zaroor miegi” (No Prince now-a-days u are making too many mistakes so today u will have to be punished) n started pulling him n was about to lock him in the room when he heard a scream, “Aaahhh Maa saaa…” (Aaahhh Mother…)
Baba sa left Kuwar there n ran towards his room. As he reached he saw Maa sa pacing outside.
Baba sa, “Kya huva Maa Sa? Rani sa kyu chilayi?” (What happened Mother? Why did Queen shout?)
Maa sa smiled n said, “Raja sahib chinta ki koi baat nahi hai todhi hi der main aapko khush khabri milegi ke aapko beta huva hai.” (Nothing to worry King. In sometime u will get good news that a boy is born)
Baba sa smiled n waited there. Kuwar who heard Dadi sa ran to the small temple in the palace n prayed.
Kuwar, “Krishna Bhagwan mujhe ek behen hi dena mujhe bhai nahi chaiye bhagwan plz” (Lord Krishna plz I want a sister not a brother)
As he was praying he heard Maa sa’s angry shouts, “Rani sa ne phir se Ladki ko janam diya hai.” (Queen has again given birth to a girl)
Kuwar was filled with joy n said, “Shukriya bhagwan.” (Thank u Lord) n ran to Rani sa’s room n saw his mother n sister sleeping.
Kuwar shaked his Maa sa n whispered so as to not disturb his sister, “Maa sa dekhiye humari choti behen kitni choti hai.” (Mother see my sister is so small)
Maa sa who heard it smiled n took her baby in her hands n kissed her whole face n said, “Dhanyavad Krishna Bhagwan iss baar humari khook suni na karne ke liye.” (Thank u Lord Krishna for not giving me a still baby)
Kuwar smiled seeing his sister who had just opened her eyes n was looking everywhere with her hazel eyes. Baba sa entered the room along with Dadi sa with red face full of anger.
Dadi sa, “Kuwar aap jaiye aapki talwar baazi ka samay hogaya hai.” (Prince u go. Its time for ur sword fighting lessons)
Kuwar, “Dadi sa hum todhi der baad jayenge. Hume abhi humari behen ke saath khelna hai.” (Grand ma I will go after sometime. I want to play with my sister right now)
Baba sa, “KUWARRR… Apne suna nahi Maa sa ne kya kaha?” (PRINCEEE… u didnt hear what did Mother tell?)
Maa sa shivered hearing Raja sahib’s angry voice n said, “Kuwar aap jaiye.” (Prince u go) n started calming the baby who had started crying hearing the loud noise. As Kuwar went out Dadi sa locked the door n went to Maa sa n took the baby n kept her on the bed n turned to Maa sa n caressing her hairs said, “Rani sa iss baar toh apne hume zinda bachi janam di hai.” (Queen this time u havent given us a still born baby) n then pulled her hairs harshly n said, “Lekin ek ladki ko janam di hai.” (But u have given birth to a girl)
Maa sa started crying feeling pain as Dadi sa continued pulling her hair harshly.
Maa sa, “Maa sa hume chod dijye.” (Mother please leave me)
Dadi sa, “Chod de aapko Rani sa chod de??? Haan hum aapko chod hi denge lekin usse phele aapki bachi aur Kuwar ko Krishna bhagwan ke pass poocha de uske baad aap bhi chali jayega unke pass.” (Leave u Queen shall I leave u??? Yes I will leave u but before that let ur baby and Prince reach Lord Krishna n then u also go to them)
Maa sa cryingly, “Nahi Maa sa aisa mat kijye. Raja sahib aap Maa sa ko kehiye na… Yeh bachi toh aapka hi khoon hai toh aap isse kaise mar sakte hai Raja sahib…” (No Mother dont do this. Ur Majesty plz u tell Mother… The baby is ur own blood then how can u kill her…)
Raja Sahib, “Haan hai toh humara khoon hi lekin hum aisa kyu nahi kar sakte balke humne toh phele bhi yeh kiya hai. Pichli 3 baar apne hume ek ladki hi di hai aur humne unhe Krishna bhagwan tak poocha diya. Hume WAARIS chaiye bhoj nahi samjhi aap Rani sa lekin ab aapko samjhane ka koi faida nahi hai Rani sa ab aapko bhi aapki bacho ke saath bhagwan ke pass jana hoga.” (Yes she is my own blood but why cant I do like this infact I have done like this before as well. Before 3 times u had given birth to girls only n I had them sent to Lord Krishna. I want a successor n not a burden so u understand that but no there is no use in making u understand so now u will have to go to Lord along with ur kids Queen)
Maa sa, “Yeh aap kya keh rahe hai Raja sahib? Aap aise kaise keh sakte hai?” (What are u telling ur majesty? How can u do this?)
Dadi sa, “Sahi keh rahe hai Raja sahib ab aapka koi naamo-nishan nahi hoga iss rajya main.“(The king is telling right n now soon ur identity will never be there on this kingdom) n ordered some maids to keep an eye on Rani sa.
Rani sa held her baby close to her bossom n cried, “Kyu bhagwan aap humse humari bachi cheena chahte hai? Nahi iss bar hum apni bachi ko kuch nahi hone denge aur na hi Kuwar ko.” (Why Lord do u want to snatch away my kid from me? No this time I wont let anything happen to my baby nor Prince) n wiped her tears n went to the washroom n put some clothes in a small bag which she hid under her dress pallu as she came out. She then asked her personal maid to get some food as she was hungry. As the maid went out she filled a small bottle with water n some clothes to cover the baby. As the maid came she sent her to call Kuwar n packed some food n put it in the bag.
As Kuwar came she told the maid to go out n stay there as she wanted to breast feed the baby. As soon as the maid went out Maa sa took out the bag n then told Kuwar, “Kuwar hume yaha se abhi bhaag jana hoga. Aapki aur aapki behen ki jaan khatre main hai.” (Prince we will have to run from here right now. Ur n ur sister’s life is in danger)
As Kuwar was about to ask Maa sa closed his mouth n said, “Abhi humare pass waqt nahi hai Kuwar. Jaldi chaliye.” (Right now we dont have time Prince. Come fast)
Maa sa then opened the back door n checked if anyone was there n as she saw no one they ran n hid behind a pillar as they saw few guards entering the palace. They soon reached the main gate where few guards were there n Maa sa then looked around to see if she could escape n saw a low wall n pulled Kuwar towards the wall. She first told Kuwar to jump who jumped expertly as he had been given training n then Maa sa held her baby n prayed to god to save both of them n jumped. As she fell she hurt her hands n elbow but thankfully nothing major happened. They then ran to the main road where they knew they would get some help n soon they reached the main road n got help from a truck driver.
Hope u all like Part 1. This is a complete fiction nothing related to any kingdoms of India n it is set in the 20th century so everyone knows english as well.
