Shiv(A)nand – My triology ends
I am finished with my first triology.. Cheers!!! I never dreamt of it. It’s unbelievable for me. Now my third part is ready to read. For the ones who missed its first and second part here is the link: 1) Who is guilty? , 2) What lies ahead?
Shiva dropped the machete in that place itself, and ran back to the place where those 3 men were staying. But he couldn’t find anyone there. He is breathing heavily; his heart is beating at high rate and restless. He has required sometime to come back to normal and think what he could do now. As he started to think that there is no one in this world to help him and care about him, he remembered about the old man. But he is also in the jail. After giving a much thought he decided to surrender and become the witness of that murder. He walked straight to the nearest police station and explained what actually happened and given the name and address of those three members. His intention was to meet the old man, to be with him and to ask for his help that he once promised. After getting his statement, they put him in the jail.
In the morning, he searched for the old man there. Shiva found him but old man was shocked to see him again here and now Shiva was once again happy to be in jail. He narrated the whole thing happened and wanted the old man to forgive him for not respecting his words. But old man was very generous and said, “Don’t worry my son. Everything will be fine soon. It’s better that you understood your mistake soon.” Shiva avoided the sight of his previous inmate.
Meanwhile Police arrested those 3 members on Shiva’s statement and put them in jail. As they investigated further on that murder, everything went against Shiva. People said that he is the one who had the knife in his hand and the fingerprint in the knife was also confirmed that. Now he is become the convict of that murder. Those 3 men also given the statement that Shiva was murdered the bank officer. Trials were going on in the court and Shiva was very much worried that he will be adjudged as the murderer. Old man was just consoled him as he doesn’t know how to help him. Shiva was in anger on those 3 guys who are not telling the truth. He decides that he will kill those 3 men and then accept as murderer if he gets punishment for murder.
In the jail, Police were arranged for a yoga session for the prisoners to instill some good values in them. A yogi came there with 4 of his assistants to teach yoga and to give a 1- hour speech on love. Shiva never attended this kind of meet and he was attracted to the tejas in face of that yogi. As he listened to the speech of the saint, he started to realize the power of love and given up his thought on vengeance.
After the speech, prisoners were divided into 4 groups and the assistants were teaching some important positions and power of yoga to them. In one group, as one of the assistant was explaining he found that his father was there and his father was none other than the old man. But he couldn’t stop this session abruptly because that was not his master preached to him. But he finished the teaching quicker that ever and ran towards his father. Old man couldn’t identify him but the assistant with tears running out of his eyes hugged him tightly, and yelled, “Sorry dad. Please forgive me.” Old man was not able to believe it. Because he searched for his son, many a time and many a places but he didn’t found him. Now old man too started to whisper with all the prisoners including Shiva watching it and Shiva was very much happy to see this.
Old man and his son were talked a lot that evening but they couldn’t control their emotions. Old man introduced Shiva to his son. His son promised his dad that he will do whatever he can to get him out of jail. But old man asked his son to first look after Shiva’s case as he himself going to be released in another 3 months. He promised that he will do his best to get justice for Shiva. He appointed a high profile lawyer for Shiva. He made sure that Shiva was not punished for the murder but he was made to be in jail for 6 months for the burglaries he has done in the past.
Shiva after releasing from the jail went to the home of the old man. Old man said he will set up a shop for him and he can run it on his own. Shiva said that he is going join with the old man’s son and preach the yoga and love across this globe. But old man said to him that already my son is doing that, so you run a business and provide shelter, food, education and job to all the ones who are suffering like you. Realizing truth in that, Shiva started a construction company and founded Anandha home for the children in need. No guesses here. The name of the old man was Anand.
