When I opened the door after a short while of listening the sound of knocking I found Vikram on the other side, I was expecting him as per the previously fixed schedule.
You always say that no one can ignore the truth of their lives, truth never dies, it exists with his own fame and glory…he started saying just after I opened the door.
Don’t try to convince me, just go upstairs and open your book, I am coming…I almost scolded.
With an upset face he went upstairs. It took almost one and half hour to make him clear the questions of Nuclear physics and there were some mathematical problems also those to be solved.
After keeping his book in the bag he looked with a big polite smile to impress me but I gave too much serious expression.
Sir one question only…he almost pleaded.
No more question answer today, just go home…saying this I lifted myself from there.
After riding on the cycle he gave such an upsetting looks that forced me to allow asking a question.
I want to meet Arpan Da and Subham Da and I guess you can never arrange meeting with them, am I right Sir?….he asked.
I avoided answering with words and replied with a smile and I found a satisfaction in his face.
So, what about Rahul da Sir? Is he same as Arpan Da and Subham Da?...he asked again.
…you said only one question and you have done it, now go home.
He disappeared from my view just after five seconds after taking the turn nearby and while closing the gate I murmured
…”There are more things in heaven and earth” O Vikram “That are dreamt of your philosophy”.
I needed a tea badly at that time, so entered in the kitchen, though I avoided answering his questions but zapped my conscious mind resulted in creating lots of questions.
After taking the tea I stood in front of the mirror in the dining of the ground floor, no one was there; other members of the house were in the first floor, facing the mirror I asked myself

…are you suffering from split personality?
And with the question I replied to myself with utmost surprise
…Split personality !!!! Sir Arthur Conan Doyale created the characters named “Sherlock Holmes” and “Shane Watson”, was he suffering from split personality? Your most fav Satyajit ray created the characters like “Felu Da”, “Topse”, “Jotayu” and lots more, was he suffering from split personality? It’s called creation that is the output of imagination power.
Then again I asked myself
...so now comes the million dollar question
I replied very hopelessly
…no, no pls don’t ask that.
But it came out
…What about the existence of Rahul?
After this question I could not face the mirror anymore, immediately shifted myself from that place but the question were reflecting repeatedly in different layers of my conscious mind, I could not avoid its, effect and the only way to suppress that in my mind was to divert my thoughts, so I started singing loudly my all time fav song...
Tum bin jiya jaye kaise
Kaise jiya jaye tum bin
Shadio si lambi hai raatein
Shadio se lambe huye din.
(How do i live without You?
Nights seem as long as centuries
So the days also)
