Anil..desperately pacing across the room...worried to death over the botched attempt to kidnap Ram. Braving the worst..he entered the Doc's room..
Looking at his reflection in the mirror the doc was singing....
".....ஓருவனே தேவன் என்று போற்றுவோம்..."
"Theriyum...enga antha maathi kondu vantha patient.."
"Avana dispose panna solit.."..before he could complete..his mouth tasted the bitter salt taste of his blood again...one tight slap from the doc...
"Fool...stop whatever you've planned...i dont want to waste one live specimen...take that man to the lab...one more to my army....hhahahahhaaa....Ram illati enna ipo...i can create as many Rams as i want...."
with his demonic laughter ricocheting off the stony walls ...the doc went to the lab...leaving behind a stunned looking Anil...
"MUDIYAATHU....enakku ippovay therinjaganum..enna nadakuthu inga...Ram en husband...i deserve to know about his status...wats wrong with him...enna operation panreenga...."..Uma was shouting hysterically at the doctor who sat patiently in front of her.
"Mrs. Ram...please cool down...u absolutely deserve to know everything...we are waiting for one more person to join us..avarum kooda iruntha it would be much more easier..."
Their conversation gets disturbed by a stern yet polite voice asking
"Sorry to disturb..May i come in."
"Sure Col.Raghavan...its always a pleasure to meet you.." welcomed the doc.
"Gud to c tht you'vent lost your positive mood even in this somber scenario,Doc. And she has to be Mrs. Ram, am i correct?"..
The doc sagely nodded.
"Uma, meet Col. Raghavan. We await one more person and then we shall...oh here he is..the noted psychiatrist...how are you today sir.."
"Doin gud...hello Mrs. Ram..you might not know me..but i know a bit about you from Ram..."
"What!! when did he met you? Ram never told me anything about you!!"
Uma was feeling dizzy..
".who are these people...till an hour back i thought i know my hubby well..wats happening know...what does a serving army officer...a psychiartrist and a neuro surgeon know abt my hubby which i dont??? "..her mind was filling with questions..when the wise doc broke the unexpected calm which had befallen the introduction...
"Mrs. Ram...whatever i am going to tell you stays within this room...as of now only the three of us are the only living souls who know this secret.....sparing an unfortunate fourth one....who is responsible for Rams current state...we need your absolute secrecy in this matter....your cooperation will only help in protecting your husbands life..."
"Colonel sir....trust me...i would do anything to get my Ram back...i demand to know wats happening all these days..." said Uma.
"Not that i distrust him..but did Ram at any point of time tell you anything about..."Project Sindbad"....or "CASR".."asked the Col..
"CASR is Centre for Advanced Scientific Research...its a department the existence of which is known only to a handful of people in entire India...its directly under the governance of the President.....officially there are no records abou us...we are all untraceable...our fones are unlisted.....infact our personal details are one of the most closely guarded secrets....no one..i repeat...no one except the President has access to them.....nothing about our members are common except for their determination,dedication and zeal to serve the country....and yeah...their individal brilliance in their field...Ram was the best of the lot.....he was someone special...very special ...believe me.....i tell you from the bottom of my heart...had i known that i would be facing this day...i would've never never suggested his name for Project Sindbad...."...Uma could feel the genuine sadness in his voice....
i wanted to wind this up in this part....but suthama time illai...so bear with me folks....one or more posts should see this through :D
