The contrivance-7/2

“How? Here is how! He handed over the paper inside to her and said,” Read it!”
Khushi snatched the paper from him, and looked at it. It was a court order. It said, ‘By virtue of the authority vested in me by my client Smt. Mandira Neerav Singh Rajwada, I her attorney would like to hereby declare the twin assets in her possession to be the property of the owner of the stake not less than 35% of the AR Group, and the chosen heir of the Group as decreed by Late Shri Neerav Singh Rajwada, the founder of The AR Group. The heir chosen should hereby be given the status on par with that of the Rajwada natural heir, in the event of:
i. Possession of stakes in the AR Group of being not less than 35% of the group,
ii. Possession of any one of the following:
a.     The power of authority for the vault of late Smt. Vandana Neerav Singh Rajwada.( see annexure)
b.    The Rajwada family heirloom (details enclosed)
In the event of possession of both, or either of these, the person would be the family heir equivalent in taking decisions regarding AR group and its subsidiaries…until fulfillment of the clause 8.i(6)
Khushi shook her head as if dong that would make her shake-off all the confusion off in her mind. Varsha who was listening to it very intently said,” But what’s all this? How can this make Khushi the heir?”
“Are you nuts?” Arnav barked.
Khushi looked at Varsha and Arnav and asked, “No I think your family is. For making such a complicated will”
“Shut up! You are a dud, and on top off it you comment on me?” Arnav lost his cool.
“Now cool it! We…just want to know how she is family sir?” Varsha tried to be polite.
“Didn’t you read? Both or either of the clauses-If they are fulfilled, a person is on par with a Rajwada.
“Oh!” They both said simultaneously.
“But in your case u have one.” He said showing the key. “Key to my mothers vault.”
“But it says they must also have not less than 35% of the stake in AR Group!” Varsha said triumphantly.
“Oh Yes! Did you read the paper?” Arnav spat at her.
He thrust the paper on her. The full article detailed that Mandira Rajwada declared 36% of the stake out of 55% she holds in the name of her grandsons would be.
Varsha ‘s jaw dropped so much that Khushi had to close it and then she read the entire thing twice, and smiled and said, “Ahaa! There is a catch Mr. Rajwada.”
Arnav glared at her.
“What? See the annexure. It says Vandana Rajwada…”she paused, and asked your mother?”  And continued, “ Ok! She left it to her son’s wife. Aha! So I am not so…cool it Mr.”
“Do you both have any grey matter in your brains?” Arnav asked her.
Both the women stared at him.
“Yes it says the key can only be with my wife. And that would go if she has not less than 35% of the stake. You fulfill both now.” He said.
“But I am not the wife My dear sir!” Khushi said smugly.
“Then why did you get 36% Stake Ms.K? He asked.
“That too overnight?”
“What? How do I know? Ask your gran.” She said.
“She made a public statement that she is giving it to my would be wife.” He explained mock patiently.
“But I am not.” Khushi said.
“Good try telling to the other directors and stakeholders. Then they will ask in what capacity stakes went in your favour. Mind you, they must have all read todays head lines for sure.” He said coldly.
“We will tell them your grandmother transferred them on to my name.” Khushi said confidently.
“For what?” He asked her.
“For being your would be.” She spat back.
“Right! But you are not that! So who are you?” He demanded.
“I?...” Khushi did not understand.
What did he mean by who was she!
“You are a fraud. That’s what they will prove you to be. “ He smirked yet again.
Khushi sat on the bed saying, “ OH MY GOD!!!”
“That’s ridiculous!” Varsha came to rescue her friend. “Your gran did that. She didn’t ask for it.”
“Try convincing Vasisth Jhunjhunwaala!” Arnav threw another googly at them.

“Who is that?” Both the women asked.
“AR Group’s Chief Legal Officer.” Arnav said coldly.
They both exclaimed, “Vasisth JhunJhun waala! The Jhunjhun wala!!!!!Oh No! He ripped people apart! No way!”

“What….e.r…do… I do? Khushi said, and said, “I want some water to drink.” Varsha scurried to the mini refrigerator and pulled out a small bottled and handed it over saying, “Here!”
“What do we do Varsha?” Khsuhi asked.
Varsha shook her head in helplessness.
Khushi looked at Arnav and asked, “ What shoud I do?”
“Marry me!” He said very matter-of-factly.
“What?” Khushi got up coughing as the water she was drinking went into her nose as well.
“Easy!” He thumped her on her back and asked,” Are you all right?”
Khushi regained her breath and glared at him and hissed,” You swine!”
“Yeah! Thanks Ma’am!” Arnav said giving her a mock bow.
“This is all because of you!” Khushi went, on as Varsha stalled her, “ Khushi! Stop! Just …”
“You did all this coz I didn’t go to that farm house with you… you %$^#&!” Khushi shook with anger.
Arnav laughed out throwing his head back much to Khushi’s rising anger. “All this coz what? That you refused to go with me to my weekend hide away? What do you think you are? I asked you to go there to discuss legal repercussions and since Vasisth was chilling there with his family, I thought I will make you sit with him and discuss it out before we go further on it.”
“You…you %^&&*! You didn’t tell me that!” Khushi hissed at him.
Why should I? You should have trusted me K” he spat back! You think the whole world is after your smart little ass?
I wouldn’t even give you a second glance! And Believe me I have better hostesses in my guest houses than you.” He sneered at her.
“How dare you!” Khushi growled.

“I do! Coz, how dare you think that every man is a lech! Today morning I still came for you…to ask you and drill sense into you, but you had to make the scene and now look at what you have done! My name is now associated with yours and aaarrrgggh gran actually transferred…” he got a ping and checked it groaned aloud…”AAAARRRRGGGHHHH…. That’s the confirmation. Now you are officially the holder of 36% of the AR Group stake.”
“WHAAATT?” Both Khsuhi and Varsha yelled.
“Do you know what are the twin assets?” he asked them.
“No.” Khushi said closing her eyes.
“My ancestral home where my parents tombs are there and … he breathed hard and said,” …and he closed his eyes and said,” the antique gold statue of Lord Sri Krishna of the Rajwada Dynasty.”
“The one which they say is an original sculpted by Sudhama and passed through the generations!” Khushi said loudly. It was very famous.
“But I don’t want any of these. I…I shall return it back” Khushi said with conviction.
“Oh Yeah? And how may I know?” Arnav asked her.
“I shall return them! That’s all! There is no how and when in that Khushi declared.
“Do that!” he challenged her.
“I shall…to your granny” she told him.
“Go ahead!” He gestured by the sway of his hand. “Be my guest!”
“I shall be. Coz I will come for that dinner party, and return the entire thing!” She threatened.

“It is registered on your name. Are you crazy?” Arnav asked her.
“So I will get it reregistered.I am educated you know?” she raised her eyebrows twice in victory.
“Cant!” he said looking at her seriously, making her go cold in the pit of her stomach.
“Why? Even for reregistration you need her consent!” He said in a clipped tone. And added when she looked at him incredulously.
“Grand pa Rajwada was a genius K! He put some ground rules which all of us follow. You cant transfer you can avail the power but not sell or transfer till you become a member of family. Rule is the same for all of us!”

“Then what should I do?” Khushi asked loudly.
“You know what!” He smirked.
“No!” She slumped on to the bed closing her mouth in horror.

“Yeah! Now you have no choice! Marry me…

No choice for Khushi looks like. Though Arnav was not fair in accusing Khushi & Varsha of being stupid. Even I could not understand what was happening!;-)
