CHAPTER 1

(This is the life of Sai Akhil and his Perennial love. He narrates the events that he encountered in his life.)



"Love is eternal, irrespective of religion and caste. The emotions and romance are Perennial. It's painful as well as sweet."



I didn't expect this kind of twist in my life. If I have not come to Delhi in this month of February 2020, if CAA have not been passed, then I could not have come to Delhi riots now. I am now badly injured...the knife have entered deep into my stomach....but, my mind persists to think about my beloved ones...



I know where is my love Vishalakshi. They are all safe in the annex. We are now in Brahmapuri to control the riots...



This is one of the place, which gets attacked by the protesters, led by Hindu as well as Muslims. My friend Muhammad Nausath is struggling to breath after being attacked by the protesters...



We both joined in Indian Army together and are close friends, with Sai Adhithya too. He is now fighting to save Jaffrabad from the attacks...



Before entering into Indian Army, our life was totally different. My life was completely opposite.



When I was four years old, my father died in the 2008 Mumbai Bomb blasts. He have been assigned to protect the cities. My mother, who already opposed my father's profession, died by accidentally falling off from the cliff...unable to bear the shock...



I was left orphaned...but, my grandfather Rangaswamy raised me. He was an 60 year old ex-Colonel, served in Indian Army during Kargil war 1999.



Our family's ancestors are great warriors from Chera periods to British and modern Era...Since 8 years, my grandfather trained me in Martial arts skills such as Adimurai, Valari and Kalaripayattu.



I was thought Bhagavat Gita, Mahabharata and Ramayana, which explained several inspiring themes and quotes...



Initially, I felt disgusted....but, my grandfather one day asked me, "Sai Akhil. Have you read about Arjuna and Lord Krishna in Bhagavat Gita?"



I replied him, "Yes Grandfather. I have read...Lord Krishna told about Bhagavat Gita to Arjuna....Indeed, he guided them during the Kurusethra War"



"Yeah. Here, I am Lord Krishna for you...you are Arjuna...you have the same characteristics of Arjuna...but, your mental strength is weaker...have you read about a part of Drona and Arjuna?" asked my grandpa..



I replied, "Yes Grandpa...I have read about several things of Drona and Aswathama...among those, I liked his task against Pandava.:"



"Hmm...why did you like that part?" asked my grandpa...



I told, "Because, except Arjuna, the other four didn't win the task given by Drona..."



"Why? Why didn't they win?" asked my grandfather...



I replied him saying, "Because, for Arjuna he was able to see the bird as his target. While the others saw trees and other things like wood, home...they didn't focus on bird..."



"Exactly...for us, aim is the only target" said my grandpa..



Even though we are not brahmins, Christian or Muslim, I read Garuda Literature, Bible and attended church prayers, monks and our temple cultural rituals...



We didn't see caste or religion...I developed the spirit of patriotism when I was just 15 years old...



When I was in 8th, I met Sai Adhithya and Mohammed Nausath...initially, I wasn't good with them...because, they were arrogant and suffered severe anger management troubles..



Sai Adhithya was adopted by my grandfather, since he was an orphan like me...Nausath's father Noor Mohammed is a close friend to my Grandpa...and he is a police officer...



Years went on as such and we finally completed our school career. Aftermath, I joined my college after attending online classes for two years between 2017-2018, due to some political issues and riots. It was completely different from school. We are by now, final year students...



Ragging and eve teasing is common. Caste and religious problems are also quite common in college. It was a bit challenging task for us to manage the troubles in college.



However, we changed and adapted the principles of college slowly...as I saw the caste and religious dominance, I tried to change the student's mind, despite being brilliant in academics and focussed on NCC...



Since, my grandfather used to tell me, "We have to focus upon our career...but, we should also help the needy."



It was not that much easier for us to change the caste system in the college...henceforth, I wrote a novel titled "Our India", focusing on three themes of Patriotism, Caste issues, Religious dominance and finally the social issues.



I initially, thought that it would be left unnoticed by many...but when it got published, many praised me a lot for bringing into the light of realistic issues and soon after, my friends started to change and lead a new life of showing equality to all...



Between these decades, I met Ishika. She is from a Brahmin family in R.S.Puram, raised by her only father and elder sister Niranjana.



Her mother died, a few years ago. Ishika and I met co-incidently in online chats and grew closer. However, as I proposed her my love, her sister asked me to stay away or face the dire consequences...



As I felt my career as important, I stayed away from Ishika. Since, I wanted her also to be happier, besides my career....



I promised to her sister that, I won't speak with her. But, soon Ishika humiliated me with one of my friend's help by sending Screenshots of my chats....



Angered extremely, I shouted at Ishika and broke ties with her...her close friend Vishalakshi tried to console me...



Whenever Ishika tried to speak with me, I used harsh words to her and sent her away from me...



One day, she came along with Vishalakshi to meet me, when I was sitting relaxed with Nausath, Rishi Khanna(to whom they shared the Screenshots) and Sai Adhithya...



"Akhil. I have to talk with you for five minutes. Please!" said Ishika.



I said to Adhthya in anger, telling "Adhithya. Ask her to go da...I further feel pity for her...as she is a motherless girl...now, I am in a good mood"



"Hey. Let's hear what she comes to tell da. Wait for a few minutes" said Rishi.



As I cannot slap Ishika directly, I slapped Nausath telling, "Don't you understand. You have studied right! I am not ready to talk with you...go out."



Ishika is heartbroken and leaves from the place....while, I looked in tears...



"Why are you dropping tears da?" asked Nausath.



"I have slapped you right....that's why." I said to him, as a reason...but, I cried for hurting Ishika, which I know very well...



"Why are you acting Akhil? I know you love her...and also knew, why are you angry with her? But, she didn't sent the screenshots to Rishi...it was indeed, her sister" said Vishalakshi...



"Yes da...it was her sister only" said Rishi Khanna...



"I already knew that, a few days back da." I said to him..



They are shocked to hear this from me and I now continued to tell them what happened...



"I found that Ishika's sister sent such a screenshot, misunderstanding the apology status, which I posted before she warned me....but, I removed it...as I remembered the promise made, I didn't wish to talk with her..since, her sister and father trust Ishika a lot....for her, they are there while for me, my grandfather only is there....I consider Indian Army as a big ambition."



After hearing this, they tried to console me and accept her as my friend...but, I refused to do so...



Eventually, fate made other plans....Vishalakshi fell in love with me eventually, realizing my good nature....



She proposed to me after a few days....but, I refused telling that, "Eventhough, I didn't speak with Ishika, she still lives deeper in my heart as lover."



Unable to bear my rejection, she attempts suicide...her father Mukesh, being a highly influential businessman go furious and kidnapped my friends...



He told me, "My daughter is quite sensitive...she never gives up the thing, which she liked a lot...ask your grandpa to come and talk with me..."



However, I refused and he tried to shoot my friends...but, I rescued them and asked him for some time...



Vishalakshi eventually, sacrifices her love and I became friend with Ishika...however, still more, I talked less with her...



One day, while coming to the college, she meets with an accident and gets hit in her head badly...



I was attending the classes and Rishi hurriedly in tears and called me, "Sai Akhil"



"Hey...what happened da? Why is Rishi running this faster to the class?" asked Nausath.



"Don't know....come...let's go and see what happened" said Sai Adhithya...



"Hey...what happened da? Why are you crying?" I asked him....



"Ishika met with an accident da...she had been admitted in the hospital serious, initially...but, she.." Said Rishi...



In panick Vishalakshi asked him, "But she...Tell me what happened to her da?"



"She eventually succumbed to her injuries da, Akhil" said Rishi, unable to control his tears....



My heart just stopped a moment when I heard the news...my smiling lips turned quite. Tears started rolling down from my eyes....I fell in my table like a tree...which falls down instantly, when being cut....



"Hey Akhil" said Nausath...Vishalakshi was heartbroken and cries louder...



I developed fits immediately, due to the extreme shock....



"Akhil...what happened da? Hey, what for you are looking? Take any key and keep it in his hands" said Vishalakshi, in panick...



After minutes, I got controlled and they admits in hospital...



Even after the electrocution, I didn't develop any improvements...



Doctor came and informed Rishi, "Rishi. He is mentally weak da....no use to give electrocution...you better ask his grandpa to come and see him....it may be useful."



"Hey...shall we inform to his grandpa?" asked Nausath.



"How could you do like such da? He is 78 years old man....that too, a heart patient...will he bear this news?" asked Sai Adhithya..



"Vishalakshi...at this time, you have to be with him...go and talk with him...let's see whether he improves in his health or not" said Rishi...



She agrees and came to my room...



She told me, "Akhil. I am not able to see you like this da. On one side, I am upset with Ishika's demise...other side, you are like this...thinking about her death. I need you back da...I want you...because, I love you...love you eternal..."



My health started to improve and they done a surgery to me...as my neck was fractured, I was been took for bed rest...my grandfather too came and supported me in the hospital.



Meanwhile, Ishika's elder sister came to meet me after learning the fits incident, with her father, also accompanying her...



When they are about to step in my room, Sai Adhithya stopped them in anger and said, "Stop there itself...never step inside the room...already, he is upset with Ishika's death, because of you duo...I fall to your feet and ask you, sister...please don't go and see him again...we didn't even expect that, he would survive...that too it's because of Vishalakshi only, atleast he recovered now somehow...get lost."



"Hey...what's happening outside da? Why is Sai Adhithya shouting at someone?" I asked to Rishi and Nausath, when hearing the sound...



"Nothing da...you take rest...don't strain yourself" said my grandfather...



"Rishi...tell me who have come there?" I asked him...



"Akhil...kindly take rest...don't strain" said Vishalakshi...



However, I got out from my room and learned that, Ishika's sister and father came to meet me....my friends consoled me and brought me back to my room...
