16. The Pinnacle

Saqi just wished, had God given him a day’s time to have explained everything to Sadia which he already would have, had this unexpected incident not happened. He was already prepared to explain and make Sadia comprehend everything and he was sure that she would understand everything as Saqi’s words always meant a lot to her and she aptly knew that he would not decide anything which would not be in her favor. Saqi was sure that she would respect the fact that he takes her as a good friend and they both would always share a reverent friendship. He just couldn’t comprehend that it would all get ended so fast. As time passed, their blames over Saqi started to reach its pinnacle. His silence had already started to take a toll on him. They even didn’t refrain themselves from saying that they knew what were his real intensions to come there. They were just not ready to listen anything. This was a blame which Saqi just couldn’t take on himself. Without knowing anything and not making any sincere effort to know anything, how could they have commented like that. It was a real test of patience for Saqi and all he found that how true was Sadia in her words when she described her kin. They didn’t even feel a bit of shame to have doubted their daughter’s character. So Saqi thought what would be his existence in front of them. When they are not responsible towards their daughter, with what hope he could even think that they would listen to his words. It was just hopeless to make them understand. Saqi just asked God to give him strength and patience to listen to their every allegation, however awful it would get. He just didn’t care now as to what would they feel. All he prayed was to make it easy for Sadia once he leaves. He knew it is not going to be easy for that innocent girl who just couldn’t stop crying, hearing to this smudged conversation.

Well we are all so different and yet so alike...
I am getting "furious" just reading through the text and realizing that while Saqi's major worry is Sadia, how she feel's, and what can possibly happen to her when he leaves, Sadia just sit's and cries!!
I understand the bad atmosphere she has at home, I understand her fear, but yet does her love for Saqi not once make her say a word and relief Saqi of anything??
I know this maybe a question of culture and education but it just doesn't make sense to me...
Saqi seems to have done something wrong all by himself and is left to handle it all by himself... and his main thoughts are Sadia and her feelings and what her family may do.
If this is not love than what shall I call it?
Sadia do something, don't just sit there and cry!!! You are a woman!!

Saqi.....to Sadia

Haye Afsoos mere aane se teri zindagi ye kya ban gayi...
umeed tujhe thi behtareen jaza ki jo tere liye ek saza ban gayi...

Jis Dosti ko tune apni duwaoun ki kubuliyat, aur apni mohabbat tassaur ki...
Wo Meri dosti, aur teri mohabbat tere liye Qahar o saza ban gayi....

shroo hui thi khushi se jo dosti, ek dardnak anjam ban gayi ...
socha tha layenge bahaar teri zindagi me jo na chahte hue khizan ban gayi...

Aaj ahsas hua jo lagaya tha apni baton ka marham tere zakhmo par...
wo tujh masoom k liye ek zahar alood sitam aur saza ban gayi....

teri khush_hali ko apni zimmedari samjhakar ki thi koshish...
wo meri koshish ab hamesha k liye ALLAH TALA se ek dua ban gayi...
