Chapter 5

"One fine day Madhu took all her jewels, money and eloped with Raju... that night, While we were searching for Madhu we got a call from police saying she was murdered" said Manasa's aunt. "Oh.. how was she murdered?" enquired Siddharth. "A pillow was used to asphyxiate her". "what about Raju then? Where is he now?" he asked her again. "He is dead too" she replied. "How and when?" Asked an impatient Jeeva. "He died on the same day. it seems he stepped out to make arrangements for their wedding which they had planned for the next day... local thieves somehow got the news about the two eloping … they robbed everything, murdered Madhu and escaped". "That was really sad" said Siddharth. "Does Raju belong to this same village? Where is his house?" Questioned Jeeva. "Yes, he belonged to our village but his family isn't here, I remember he had no parents, his grandmother was his only family, she passed away before all this happened". "Siddhu, we are supposed to go to temple today" said Manasa walking into the room interrupting their conversation. "Yeah, I remember Manasa" replied Siddharth getting up from his chair. Manasa's aunt said "Raju's house is very close to that temple, it's an old house. you can spot it very easily". "Oh, thank you aunty" said Jeeva.


"Who is Raju?" Asked Manasa looking at her aunt. "They wanted to know about Madhu and Raju"replied Manasa's aunt. "oh ok" Manasa ignored the topic and asked "siddhu are you ready? Shall we leave?". "Are we going alone or with the entire family?" questioned Siddharth. "with family" whispered Manasa. "then what is the use?" shouted an irritated Siddharth. Jeeva bursted out Laughing.

Siddharth's family, Manasa's family, Ridhi and Jeeva reached the temple. While everyone were busy with the special puja they had arranged for Siddharth and Manasa Jeeva slowly sneaked out of the temple in search of Raju's house. It didn't take too long to identify Raju's house, it was pretty close to the temple. Jeeva entered the house which was in a very bad condition. He looked around and found a photo hanging on the wall, he took the photo, wiped away the dust and looked at it. A young man was standing beside an old lady. Jeeva clicked a picture of the framed photo in his hand using his mobile. he found nothing else of value other than the photo in the abandoned house.


Meanwhile, in the temple Siddharth asked Ridhi if she had seen Jeeva. He was right here, I don't know where is he gone now?". "Okies, let me go check" replied Siddharth. Ridhi grabbed him by his arm "No, Siddharth you and Manasa should perform the puja together. you stay here let me go see where he is" she said.

Ridhi walked around looking for Jeeva. while passing Raju's house she noticed Jeeva inside through a window. She entered "Jeeva, what are you doing here?" Jeeva looked at her and asked "why did you come here?". "I came in search of you, what are you doing here?" Ridhi hit back. "I… uh..I was bored with all those rituals so came to out". "ok come on let's go" said Ridhi dragging him out of the house.


Jeeva and Ridhi went back to the temple. Manasa and Siddharth were already done with their pujas. "Did you find Raju's house?" asked Siddharth. "I did, look!" said Jeeva showing his phone to him. "Who is this?" questioned Siddharth. "I found this picture in Raju's house" replied Jeeva. "So I guess he must be Raju...the amount of interest you are showing in this is astonishing… makes me think that you might have been Raju in your previous life" said Siddharth laughing. Jeeva looked up at Siddharth in utter shock. "cool buddy… I was just joking" said Siddharth tapping on his shoulders.
