“your life is at stake” Mobile flashed its text in Raghav’s mobile….
“Soooo crisp text??? What happened ???” Raghav was tangled… He checked his mobile again… It is Javeed… Message was received at 4.45 AM… Damn !!! Just after few minutes I boarded the flight he has send such a message… Pooja was talking something seriously with that old pilot…
“Pooja you sit here.. I need to make a call.. “and he got up…
Pooja doesn’t wanted to leave her window seat but still she wanted to chat with that uncle more.. He is such an adventurous man and had a similar character of her dad .. Pooja and Raghav Exchanged their seats…
From window seat, Raghav dialed Javeed’s number… A computer recorded voice answered him..
“The number is currently busy.. Please Try after some time…”
Shit !!! He did tried ten times again.. The same recorded voice was the only reply which he got…
“Damn… If my life is at stake let it be… I will manage… “
By the time he got message from flight authorities that the flight will take off in another ten minutes and to kindly switch off the mobile phones…
“Now let me try for the last time… “ he tried again and the reply was same .. “Number busy”
“Damn…where is Javeed ????” Raghav was highly frustrated…
By the time he decided to switch off his cellphone he got a call from a new number… Raghav picked the call in the very first ring…
“Hey Raghav.. Javeed here… “ Javeed was exhaling …
‘Hey Javeed .. are you k ??? where are you???” Raghav identified the tension in Javeed’s voice and talked in a very soft voice to ease him…
“Am in Mumbai… please say that you didn’t call my number after seeing the message…“
“I tried .. But it was engaged.. What’s going on there man???”
“Suraj found me .. He has cracked the information somehow… they have kidnapped Zara.. They want me to tell all the information about our group and about you as ransom to rescue Zara… and my cell is with them.. they have send message to every contact in my mobile.. I dono what is that… but it’s a trap.. Don’t get into in it… I called you to warn you…”
“Hey am not bothered about me… What happened to Zara ?? Is she fine ???”
“I dono… They have snatched my phone .. And this is the phone I got as a gift to zara.. they didn’t notice it.. am in a public toilet now… Suraj has left with his men somewhere to bring Zara… Another man who is here to watch me is standing out…”
“Damn !!! So you didn’t see your wife yet… See Zara is important for us.. Tell about me and give my number to him.. I will see the rest….”
“But they will kill you.. and if the information is out they may kill me and Zara too…”
“shit !! I must have killed him on the day of my wedding… Since I thought him dead and that too in marriage tension I missed that idiot… accha chalo … Tell him you have my number and you have seen me.. But other than that you know nothing and it’s a secret maintained in our group…and… ya also Tell him that I am on the way to kullu manali… and its easy to trap me here… bring them all here.. We will face them.. And make sure Zara accompanies you here.. be safe k… I will contact you through this number.. “
“You saw him on your wedding ??? “
“Yeah I met.. But I was focused somewhere else.. He was there to stop my marriage.. Hope my wife will know something about him…”
“Its your honeymoon then.. I don’t want to…”
“Shut up javeed.. you know am not ready for another relationship… Take care of your wife.. And do inform me every bit..And currently where are you…?? “
“chatrapathi shivaji terminus… “
“fine I will send our men there.. they will be watching you and they will follow you too… I know they wont harm you.. they need me.. and to find me they need you… Bring them here…”
Javeed heard someone knocking the door…
“Someone is knocking the door.. bye “ and the call was cut….
Raghav’s heart was racing.. He immediately dialed some numbers and made a conference call..
Meanwhile an airhostess approached Raghav “Sir kindly switch off your cell..”
“Just a minute… “ He smiled at the air hostess and she left that place…
Aejaz , Ralston , Shyam , Nithya ,Ankith, Sheela were on the conference… Raghav quickly gave orders to all in a minute and asked them all to be safe .. He also instructed them to call all others in the group and inform them all…
By the time the flight took off and the call got disconnected…
Pooja and that uncle were still busy in their talk… they were discussing about a place near manali…
“Yeah dear don’t ever miss that Rohtang pass… you can find that on the highway to Keylong.. You could have a wide-spread panorama of mountain scenery there… In place of the pinnacled hills, sheltered valleys and cultivated tracts, the eye meets a range of precipitous cliffs, huge glaciers and piled Moraine and deep ravines. It was the first place I went with my wife in manali… Best place to sit and talk with your loved ones … “ And the uncle was smiling…
“Loved ones !!! Will I ever find such a person in my life… “ Pooja looked at Raghav… To her surprise even he was looking at her….
“Need your seat back??? “ Raghav asked Pooja…
“Oh yeah .. Thanks … “ and Raghav offered his seat… The flight was flying high above….
Pooja was thrilled to fly above the great Himalayas… But she was not able to see anything down except the clouds and the mist… It was disappointing to her… she wanted to see the snow cladded mountains and the cliffs….
“Please God .. Make the weather clear.. “ She humbly requested God….
“It is a Good weather .. “ uncle exclaimed…
“But uncle what I can see is only mist around…”
“Oh yeah.. but the mist is not very heavy… the Pilot could easy cross this… U know what Pooja Every 2 flights in 3 gets delayed or sometimes get cancelled due to the bad weather in manali… Sometimes we had to travel at negative degrees of temperature… It’s a miracle that in the month of January the mist is less… the pilot could have a safe landing…. “
“so uncle what will you do if the flight gets struck in the middle ??? “ Raghav questioned the uncle…
“Normally we wont take off the flight in such conditions.. we get a confirmation of the weather before we start.. But yeah sometimes critical situations happen… Its of high risk to go for an emergency landing too.. It’s a rugged terrain area … but still we have to take risk … We first locate and inspect a potential landing site and go for precautionary landing.. sometimes we go for ditching.. It is the same as a forced landing, but only on water. After the disabled aircraft makes contact with the surface of the water, the aircraft will most likely sink if it is not designed to float, although it may well float for hours. We use that time to save all our passengers. Its God grace I had never been thrown in such a critical situation…”
It was very informative talking with that old pilot… Raghav gathered many information from him and the places around Kullu and Manali… Now a plan was ready for him…
Pooja was interested in peeping out of the window.. Thank god the flight has windows which are sealed.. Or else she would have let her head out float on the air… she seemed so childish to Raghav.. I must ask her about Suraj as soon as I reach Manali… He thought… It seemed to be a safe journey until that unexpected event occurred….
**************************************

Javeed came out of the public toilet… the man standing out was burning in rage…
“what were you doing till now ??? “ the man was shouting at Javeed…
“don’t you know what would a person do in a toilet ??? “ Javeed scowled..
“I heard some voice.. Let me check you… “ and he checked his pockets and even socks… there was no sign of cell phone… thanks to the ultra slim model of nokia , the cell was resting safe under his feet inside his shoes… It’s a great advantage in nokia , even if you ride your bicycle on it , still it will work..
Feeling depressed the man pulled javeed…
“come lets go … “
After few minutes of walk they were inside a park… It was less crowded and there were people leaving that place in jogging dress… perfect place !!! after 7 Mumbai parks would be deserted.. People will rush to their work after their regular exercises…
Javeed was waiting very anxiously .. he often searched around for the image of her sweet wife… And he also rehearsed what he should talk with Suraj.. A small mistake would put all their lives at stake..
But to his surprise he found Shyam standing there… He was one among them who was very clever and a technical expert… Shyam showed his thumbs up and pretended as if he is doing exercise.. Javeed felt very relieved after sensing his group around..….
After a couple of minutes Javeed found Suraj entering the park along with 10 other men…
Why has he brought 10 people along with him??? But Zara was missing…
“where is Zara ??? “ this was the first question Javeed asked Suraj…
“Oh missing your wife kya ??? she is inside that red car… “ And he pointed a car.. there was Zara unconscious inside the car..
“You @!%%@#^ !! what have you done to my wife… “
“chill.. now you can take your wife… Tell me who is he ??? “
“You have to believe me.. I don’t know his name and where he hails from.. I have seen him twice.. I have his mobile number.. but he often changes his sim card.. Each time I help him in rescuing a girl he pays me for that… That’s all I know… Please leave us..” Javeed was literally crying…
“Hey stop crying.. I hate men crying… Now make a call to him and ask him to come here…” Suraj ordered him…
“He will be in kul.. Ufff … Nothing…” javeed pretended as if by mistake he has let the word out..
“you said kullu right… Say or else I will kill you and your wife.. my men are armed…” Javeed knew that too.. They normally have loaded pistols with them and that was the reason Raghav offered him a pistol..
“Please don’t.. Yeah he is in kullu manali now… he will be there for a week.. But I swear I don’t know anything other than that… “
“Do you have his photograph…???”
“no…”
“K come lets start to manali… I must kill him” Suraj was exhilarated..
“what about my wife..??? “ Javeed looked at suraj..
“She will be safe here…”
“How can I believe you.. If you bring her to manali with us I will come.. Orelse kill us both here.. I wont leave her alone in these @%!%#% hands… “
“@#%% !!! Fine.. She will come with us.. Lets start…”
And they all got inside a car.. Javeed was seated near her wife… and there were 2 more cars following them… Now they all started to manali by car…

Shyam ,Ralston and Nithya were on another car…
“Now what shall we do now ??? “ Ralston questioned ..
“boss asked us to follow them… We will ask others to follow us to.. Nithya you inform others the route in which we are travelling.. Ask them to bring pistols…” Shyam ordered…
And now this car followed them to Manali…

To be continued……
