Insight

Peter gave Madeline a pouch of gold coins as rewards for coming over to help. She thanked him and with joy she left home. But she or her family wasn’t lucky enough. As the World War II was in its heights of battle to depress the German power on Europe and abolish Nazism for ever. Jews were searched and found out from hooks and nooks of the city and were send to camps. Madeline and family became the victims of this as well .One week after, They were caught red-handed by the Germans and was deported to camps. They were split to three Madeline was send to one, children to another and her husband to another one. In huge coaches of train without even a proper ventilation the were loaded like goods and were taken to the concentration camps that where build for them. Madeline and her family where taken to Majdanek, a death camp which was constructed in the city of Lublin, Poland.

The huge bogeys of goods train unloaded large number of people to the camps. From there woman’s, children and men where separated. They are send to three different blocks painted in green.

They formed long queues, in the beginning and they waited for their turn to enter the a barrack, which was concreted completely. They were greeted with so much of politeness by the Schutzstaffel or the popularly known SS men with words like “Ma’am could you move forward ?” but who knew what actually was waiting for them the next minute ?

Inside the barracks they saw benches that are long and cemented. They were asked to strip themselves before advancing to the next block.

They removed there dress and was said that they could have it back once the bathing or the purification was over. They moved forward in queues, a huge board written ” bad Un Disinfecktion” welcomed the naked fearful live bodies.

What they saw is a concrete room with no possible ventilation, twice the size of bath houses. Tiled walls which contained numerous holes which had pipes projecting outwards. Puzzled victims stood their rubbing and touching the naked bodies to others assuming the flow of water from the pipes any moment. They were filled up to the maximum that it was not even possible to properly tilt their body from side to side. The doors went closed leaving behind not even a ray of light except a small opening on the ceiling and a keyhole which is possibly 2 cm in diameter. It was absolute dark and hot with these people breathing on each other.

As soon as it went dark warm water leaked into the room for a while, and then pale blue crystals of zyklon B was released which immediately vapourized in the hot humid atmosphere. Who knew that it would cause them suffocation. Wondering it to be a cleansing agent they kept quiet but after a while they all were dead with suffocation.

Naked dead bodies piled one above the other. They went in turns woman’s, men and and even children.

In one of the Queue Madeline kept stood high in her spirits. A telegram arrived at her residence in Slovakia. It was lying on the floor in front of the door. Lara opened it. It said

INFORMATION NOTICE

 “The members – Madeline Aatami (28),Abdiel Aatami(35), Abel Aatami (14) and Aaron Aatami (11). Deported and vergasted (which eventually means ‘gassed out’ at Majdanek,Poland.Confirmation Death”.

SCR- 1000072385678, Germany.

 Lara read the telegram and tears started to roll down her cheeks. She kept the telegram closed to her heart and prayed to god in a murmur.

After a year of Sofia’s birth the Russian red power over threw the German power from Slovakia and thus the Czech republic and Slovakian republic was once more joined together to form the Czechoslovakia. In 1993, Dec 31st Czechoslovakia was reborn.

The communist rule of the Soviet power was in its heights all over the nation. Red flags waved in the streets of Bratislava.

The Hornik households finally began to witness some peace. There business started to grow higher and bringing them all the luxury and money once again.

Couple of years past by, Sofia turned eight. She was as adorning as a doll. Maids kept all the attention to her. She was perhaps naughty than her brothers. Peter loved her than anything. She was presented precious gifts which the cities other children would dream for. A gold bordered fabricated pink frock was her gift for her eighth birthday. She wore that for the entire day and walked around with so much of courage along the corridors of her mansion. Maids surrounded her all time pampering her. Sylvia asked the maids not to pamper her so much that she would be spoiled of excessive pampering.

The beautiful young girl was smart in her studies and was just as good in anything even helping out with her dad’s business at this age!

On a bright sunny day, Peter was sitting at his office solving his accounts, it was then Peter discovered this………..

The Love Bond
Mystical Past

The prolonged era of the Austro – Hungarian Empire led to the formation of an central European country named the Czechoslovakia in October 1918. The levels of peace and prosperity of this sovereign state was witnessing a gradual decline by the invasion of its neighbours into its economic and political affairs. Years past by and towards the end of 1930’s after the World War I the Hungarians and the wild merciless Nazi rule started to spread it’s wings of power across the European states. By the blink of an eye, the peace was destroyed in the households of the Czechoslovakia.
The clouds went dark, the air was filled with poisonous gas. Exploding sounds came unexpectedly breaking the silence.Could it be thunder or the bombarding of the nearby buildings? Puzzled the people of the country in perfect dilemma At least for a minute, The citizens of Czechoslovakia was in despair. As Nazism grew in power Jews were hunted down from any possible ways they could and was send to the death camps. Some of them were assigned to do construction works. Hungarians on the other side added more complexity to the game of live or conquer. Czechoslovakia was witnessing it’s downpour.
1944- March, Bratislava. 9:00 PM
The Hornik family was having their supper listening to the radio on the latest political forms. Fresh plates of Brindzove Halusky which is a dish which generally the Czechoslovaks considered to be of national importance made from sheep cheese and potato dumplings was served on the tables by the maid Lara who is been with the Hornik household for 15 years now.
The Hornik family is well known across for their power and influence in the town which they have made through their family business. They have the biggest mansion in their neighbourhood and number of staffs apart from Lara to take good care of the household. Peter Hornik the head men of the family continued his traditional business of Exporting wool to the nearby European states.
Sylvia, peter’s wife was pregnant with their third child the eldest two being boys Simon and Samo.
The pregnancy period for her this time was a tough one, the country was facing a great political instability due to the World War II with no proper medical facilities and fierce circumstances. Smoke and dust filled the atmosphere at all times.
The World War II was in a way bringing some hope to the Czechoslovaks that the German and Hungarian power would loose it’s grip on the country and would bring peace back.
Peter and Sylvia along with their son’s were having dinner. Suddenly the alarm from the military base started to sound sending out alertness for the entire citizens to remain indoors. The city is again under attack.
Peter rushed  outside to shut the gates. They kept their doors and windows closed.
Sylvia said “I could feel the vibrations on the floor, are they bombing the city again? “.
Terror ran across Peter’s face ” No dear, they can’t do anything because god is in our side” replied peter in a shattered voice.
Sylvia was nine and half months pregnant. She was waiting for the delivery anytime soon. The sound of the bombshells created fear in her.
The electricity went off and it was dark. Lara took a match box and a candle stick and lit them. Five of them sat in the living room silently in the light of the candle stick till the sound of the explosions stopped.
All of a sudden Sylvia started to have uneasiness in her stomach. She started to feel the pain. She kept quite and tried to ignore it. When it started to get intensive she said ” The pain, I can feel the pain” in a low voice and kept holding to her stomach.
Peter got shocked initially thinking that their is no possibility of getting outside to take her to the medical dispensary.
Lara kept her hands to her mouth and kept staring at Sylvia. The boys had already fallen asleep in their wait for the bombing to get over.
“Mistress! Please lay down on the bed” said Lara.
“We need to call the mid wife immediately Sir” said Lara to Peter.
” But we are not supposed to leave the house, we would be captured and killed by the Germans” said Peter.
“Sir, if you could take care of her for a little time, I can rush downhill and inform the mid wife and ask her to come over quickly” said Lara.
“I think is absolutely risky, you have no guarantee for your life! ” said Peter loudly.
“I know very well sir, I am confident enough that I can do this” replied Lara.
The rain started drizzling in the mean time. Lara took her raincoats and umbrella and set out downhill to inform the midwife.
By the time she reached half the way the rain started pouring heavily. She could barely see the road. She trembled over the pebbles and rocks and managed to move forward.
At a long distance she could see the smoke and huge fire from the cathedral. Indicating one more church is down by the Germans. She kept walking quickly without getting the sight of any troops. In each foot step she made Sylvia’s face kept coming into her mind and she could hear her crying in pain. She must bring the mid wife for her mistress that was all that she could hear from her inner self.

The Love Bond
The Beginning

They arrived at Mr James apartment that night. He welcomed them with hot cup of chocolate to get rid of the cold.
Mervin left immediately after a while telling James that he would arrive to pick Ayush to Krishna Inn as he is invited to have breakfast.
James showed Ayush his room. All Ayush can remember was him getting undressed and lying on to the bed, he was dead tired.
The chirping of the birds from the trees, the sun rose late across the horizon of the mist filled atmosphere.
Ayush woke up by the knock of the door. He opened the door and fond James with a cup of coffee .He took a long sip to get himself comfortable in the cold morning.
” why don’t you have a walk to the nearby gardens? It’s beautiful” said James.
“Yes, I think I give a stroll in the gardens before Mervins arrives to take me the Restaurant for breakfast, need to get some Slovakian air” replied Ayush.
Ayush unpacked his bags and took his sweaters out and made himself ready for the morning walk. He took the stairs and came down towards the entrance of the building and opened the door. Beautiful looked the morning seen. The architectures of the buildings amazed him. Rich and elegant in style. He did not go around much indeed he has to get ready before Mervin arrives and it’s his day to join the Midway school for work.
He got back to his apartment and freshened up and soon he heard the calling bell ringing aloud. James had already left for work. It was Mervin arrived sharp at 9:00 am. They both drove to Krishna Inn just after. As they parked there car in the parking lot the old lady Mrs Sofia came out from the restaurant.
” Come in my son’s, did you get a good sleep Ayush? ” asked her in a greater voice.
“Yes, very well” said Ayush.
” Have your breakfast, do you want idli and sambar or chappathis?, whatever you want want have it” said Sofia.
A young girl who looked in her twenties to him, very beautiful but a little bit obese came from the room inside with tears in her eyes came and sat in one of the tables. Mervin immediately walked towards her and asked her something. Ayush was noticing all these while having his breakfast. Then what he saw was the girl was crying and Mervin was comforting her by wiping her tears and hugging her. Their interactions actually created a sense of discomfort to Ayush eyes thinking why should Mervin be so close to someone who is so grown up that too a lady.
After a few minutes of comforting that young lady Ayush saw him taking a some tablets from a box and asking Sofia to have it on time and giving out some advice for her regarding her health. Some words were in english which helped Ayush to understand a little bit. It was later when Ayush realised that the young girl who he saw was the grand daughter of Sofia Reznik her name is Leah. That she was so upset to go to school that day because some of her friends made fun of her due to her over weight and she was just 15 years old, which made Ayush realise that the girls in Europe looked much older compared to the girls in India who are fifteen.
Ayush was comforting her and was giving mental strength to believe in oneself and let go all the unwanted comments and see the world with positively and head to school.
Ayush had a splendid breakfast and thanked Sofia for the invite and told that he must leave immediately to reach school on time to begin his duty as a teacher. On their way to school Ayush was so curious to know about Sophia and the reason for the good relation that Mervin and other staff show towards her and her family after all they are foreigners to him. About the bond of love that holds them.
And finally he asks about it to Mervin.
Mervin laughs mildly and says ” Love and affection do not have nationality or religion, it’s just an emotional attachment between two souls”
“The old lady who Invited you today, My boss Sofia Reznik her story will give you the answer to you curiosity” said Mervin.
Then Mervin begin telling the story as they car cruised through snow covered roads of Slovakia heading to the Midway Elementary School in Bratislava.

Chapter-4

The Love Bond

The First Impressions

The train kept moving leaving behind the alps,mountains and the snow covered fields nearing to the Slovakian capital. The two men started to have conversations to run off the time. Mervin, is a very smart and an energetic person and a very good orator, some people do possess this good quality of charisma who can take over other hearts.

Mervin told Ayush about this beautiful country and its past from being Czechoslovakia to Czech and Slovakia. Well, Ayush listened to his talk with great interest. Twenty minutes of their time past by and Mervin stood up and moved away to make a call. In the mean time Ayush took the brochures of the train which was kept behind the seats and went through its pages. The temperature was -2 degree Celsius outside. Dark, cold and snowy but the cozy cuisine seats and the heaters in the train made them comfortable.

The speakers in the train said the next station is Brastislava Hlavna Stanica station. In about 5 minutes the train would approach the Slovakian capital.Mervin ended his call and came towards Ayush and asked ” you might really feel Hungary for sure apart from the little meal you had on the flight, I guess”.

“Yes, i am but its absolutely OK i would just go to the apartment and Mr James would be their waiting for me” said Ayush.

“I was talking to my mom and she is asking to bring you home for having dinner, its nearby” said Mervin.

“Oh thanks, but not this time it’s really late and i am tired just wanted to have some good sleep” reluctantly replied Ayush.

“No, please feel free. Do come or my mom would be upset” said Mervin with distress.

“Mom ? do you live with your family here ?” curious Ayush asked.

Smiled Mervin nodded his head and said ” Please do come, if you could give me Mr James number i will inform him and i will drop you to the apartment”.

Upon so much of request, even though Ayush was tired he accepted his offer to have dinner along with him late night and not to make Mervin’s mom waiting for them unhappy.

The train stopped at the Bratislava station, They took their luggage’s and got down their train.It was cold has hell, and the intensity of cold was much felt in their skins. They walked along the pavements that was filled with the midnight snow. They could hear the wolves hollowing in the dark. Some streets were dark and empty and felt like they were nobody living in that place for decades. Slovakian building looked so much ancient and beautiful and rich in architecture to Ayush’s eyes. They kept walking, the strong cold winds kept blowing onto their face which was the only part that they did not cover up.

Ayush kept following Mervin, it was a little bit difficult for the new young Indian man in Slovakia to catch up with the speed of Mervin in this cold but they kept walking along the low lit streets of Bratislava.

The time was 1:00 am. The shops were all closed down but at the end of the street Ayush could see the lights from a hotel which was still kept open at this time of the day. As they approached closer Ayush saw a old white Slovakian lady Covered in mufflers and sweaters sitting on a bench in-front of the hotel in the blistering cold as if she was waiting for someone.

Mervin said ” Ayush ! we are almost here. The woman that you see is my mom. She is waiting for you, i work in this hotel”

” Your mom ? you work here ? Why is see suffering this cold just tell her to go inside” replied Ayush with a little bit of confusions.

The woman got up from the bench and hugged Mervin and Ayush and asked her guest ” How was your journey my son ?”.

She spoke good English which actually fascinated Ayush. He said ” Oh well its was comfortable, I am so delighted that i met Mervin or else i would have been a bit worried.”

Ayush gave a look at this beautiful hotel from outside and the name really made him so surprised, it was written “Krishna Inn”. He taught to himself, a hotel named Krishna Inn in Slovakia. Absolutely surprising.

Mervin said ” This is Sofia Reznik, 75 years old. She is the owner of this hotel and i work here in this hotel. She is like my mom not just for me for every employ here  “.

Ayush asked “How many employees here ?”

“There are fifteen here, all Indians” Said Mervin.

It was really surprising for Ayush to know that a Slovakian woman running a Indian restaurant and all of the employees where Indians and they loved her and took care of her as their own mom.

“Son, you can have any kind of Indian food you want here” Said Sofia with so much of love in her hearts.

Ayush was so much delighted and felled home. He had his stomach full with those Indian delicacies. It was getting late and was time to leave.

“Son, do come tomorrow morning to have your breakfast, i will get you something special” Said the old woman to Ayush.

Ayush thanked her so much and Mervin.

Sofia asked Mervin to drop Ayush to his apartment were Mr James is. She insisted Mervin to take her luxurious Cadillac from her garage and drop him at his place. Mervin did as she said.

Ayush thanked her for the dinner and told her that he will come for breakfast tomorrow and got in the car along with Mervin to his apartment. He kept looking from the rear view mirror and saw that woman kept looking at them in the cold drive by until they vanished from her vicinity.

So much of taught’s kept lingering in his mind. Why does that woman waited in that harsh cold for someone she hasn’t seen so far ? Why does this woman invited me over and treat a stranger like me so well ? How did she have a hotel named Krishna Inn ? What makes her so special to her employees ?  Why did she give her Cadillac ? so much of questions in his mind but he was tired and all he wanted was to get to the apartment and fall asleep as soon as possible.

Chapter-3

                                  The Love Bond

                                    Journey Begins

 

The wait for the day for the journey that Ayush was waiting to get abroad, find a job and earn which was throbbing in his heart was coming to an end. The flight he booked was with the Austrian Airlines to Vienna International airport in Austria. The city capital Bratislava of Slovakia resides 50 Kms from Vienna. Mr. James Ayush’s dad’s meat dealer and friend were assigned to pick the much anticipated young man Ayush to his apartment from the Vienna airport.

The Bratislava Milan Rastislav Štefánik Airport is huge and has most of the carriers in service but most of the outsiders land in Vienna to save a lot of money in their pockets.

And finally Ayush bid goodbye to his family and leaves for the beautiful European country Slovakia sandwiched between the other big and popular countries in the central Europe.

He walked along the Chatrapathi Shivaji terminal browsing through the bookstalls and antique stores which labeled the pricy tags to kill the waiting time for his flight.

He purchased a translator from the airport which would fit in his pocket.

The information board showed check in and the boarding procedures began.

With all the curiosities of a first time flyer Ayush walked along the aerobridge and boarded the aircraft.

The gorgeous Austrian flight attendants guided him to his seat numbered B-1 giving to a relief to his worries. The safety procedures were illustrated by one of the cabin crew, Ayush kept watching it with great concern, the entire procedure when frequent flyers would doze off during that time mostly, the engine sound kept rising and the aircraft was getting pushed for its final run before takeoff.

Anticipation grew in him. Butterflies filled in his stomach and final breach started slightly pushing the passengers to their seats the Austrian carrier gained its speed through the Mumbai runway and glided into the air bringing hope and wings to young man waiting for his new life abroad.

After approximately 11 hours duration of travel with a transit at Dubai finally the flight touched down at the Austrian land at the Vienna International airport. The passengers disembarked the flight.

They lined up in the queue at the  immigration counters, it was Ayush’s turn the white pale fat man took his passport and rolled his eyeballs through the visa page, gave a serious look at him which caused Ayush a little bit of anxiety thinking that anything wrong possible has happened. But everything went right after all it is every travelers wish to get through the immigration process without any difficulties finally the man took a big stamp and punched the immigration stamp and smiled at Ayush and said “Welcome to Austria”.

This gave a much relief to Ayush and then he collected his bags from the baggage belts and walked outside the airport. The big clock at the airport showed 9 PM.

He decided to keep waiting for his father’s friend Mr. James in the blistering cold who was supposed to take him to Bratislava. The chill of the cold winter night was taking power; it was penetrating into his skin. He couldn’t hold take it anymore so he decided to unwrap his bag and get his leathered dark grey trench coat. And then of a sudden Ayush gets a text from James.

Mr James ford got its tire punctured on his way along the freeway, he texted about the unexpected and told him to catch a cab from the airport and messaged him the address of his apartment.

Stranded in the night in a foreign land Ayush kept walking to find a cab. He enquired the cab driver about the about the ride charge. Overhearing his conversation with the driver a person in his 30’s probably looked Asian walked towards Ayush and asked him “Are you travelling to Bratislava”.

“Yes, I am” replied Ayush.

“I am off to Bratislava too, I work there and I am from Bangalore, would you mind travelling with me because I think cab usually charge too much, we have rail services it’s cheap and safe. I can help you out probably if you don’t mind” he said.

“Oh! Thank you! I am glad” said Ayush.

“I am Mervin by the way, how about your good name sir?”

“I am Ayush, I am from Mumbai” smiled Ayush.

They walked towards the Hauptbahnhof Station in Vienna.

The European unions are well connected by EU rails which are easily accessible and incredibly cheap.

They pretty much have the world class trains and season tickets valid for a particular period time can be purchased. They purchased two tickets costing them Euro 15 each to the Bratislava Hlavna Stanica station with a travel time on the ticket which indicated one hour.

They waited at the terminal and finally a porche silver red lined Double Decker trained arrived and stop in front of them. The train actually fascinated him in its looks when Ayush thought and compared it to his homeland rail services.

They stepped into the warm luxury couch and settled down in their seats and felled a great relief from the husky cold outside.

The train began to move taking them Slovakian capital, Bratislava.

The Love Bond #1

Chapter-2

                                      The Love Bond
The Envelope

Three weeks past by and it was nearing to the end of Jan. Sun rose high above the mystical urban shore of Mumbai. Ayush remained in his bed burying himself in the cosy quilt covering himself from head to toe welcoming the new day.

For the the young man, he was having the beautiful dream of spreading his wings and flying to a far away land to achieve his ambitions till his mom woke him up.

“Ayush wake up now, it’s past 10. Go get refreshed up and why don’t you go with your dad to help him out at the store ?” said his mom.

“Mmmm……OK mom” replied Ayush reluctantly.
Ayush’s dad runs a grocery store at the Khans’s market. A store that was bought up by his dedication and hard work in the past 25 years. Ayush still isn’t much interested in getting into business like his dad. He loved arts and the biggest wish he ever has was to sell a movie to the public. He loved theater arts.
After having a cup of tea from his mum’s little red spots tea pot that was gifted to her from her dad before he left the world two years ago.

He rushed upstairs to check his mail, the wait for the reply from the embassy of Slovakia for his visa approval. Nothing seemed new to his inbox. Except a note from her.
Yes, her I mean Naomi. Naomi is his long time friend from childhood. Albin, Naomi and Ayush where all batch mates at school. They shared a relationship which caused envy among others. Eventually at the end of the last semester of college it was Ayush who expressed his love towards her.

She works for a consulting company at downtown.
Beautiful, clever and smart are the words which can describe her. No wonder she had many men behind her at college being one most beautiful looking woman in the college. Her beautiful black scented hair spreads the essence over the corridors of St Mary’s college. She felled for Ayush for his innocence and caring character. She passed out of the college with honors as well.
The note she left in the mail said “I need to meet in the evening at the Costa Coffee at avenue street”
Time passed 5 in the evening, Ayush told his dad that he is leaving the shop to meet his friend. He took his bike and left in a hurry to the Avenue street.

He was having a mixed emotions wondering what it could be, Naomi’s parents have already started to hunt for a groom for her.
With a pounding heart beat he looked for her at the cafe. She was sitting at the corner table. He walked towards the table and asked her jokingly ” so, what’s up my dear, Have your guardians started geek hunting from IIT’s again ?”

“No, Ayush you need not worry about that I am not going to fall for that money bags. I would keep my promise” replied Naomi.

“Then, tell me why did you ask me to come over suddenly ?” asked Ayush.
Naomi opened her bag and took an envelope and handed it over to him.

” oh! Is it your termination letter ?” said Ayush with a laugh.
“Shut up! Ayush please don’t joke, open it” insisted Naomi.

Ayush opened the envelope and there was a letter in it. It said ” Schengen visa- Your visa has been approved. Welcome aboard ”
Tears of joy started filling his eyes.
” I thought it would be rejected and how did you know about it, I never told you ” said Ayush.
“That was mean of you. But Albin told me about this, so took the help of my aunt who works at the embassy in greater Mumbai to speed up the process” replied Naomi.

“I don’t know how to thank you,dear” said Ayush
” you don’t have to thank me now what you have to do is pack your bags and get yourself ready for the journey” Naomi said.
” I am going to miss you badly” said Ayush.
” me too, this would be for a good reason says my heart, now get going” told Naomi.
He caught her hands together and gave her a kiss on her forehead and said bye and left home.
Ayush left to store first to tell his dad about the visa arrival. But he was nearly shook when his dad congratulated him in advance.

” Dad, how did you know? ”
“Hoo! It’s you who did not tell me but I have people to inform me about everything you do” laughed Mr Jaganathan.

” I thought let you find your job yourself, I decided not to interfere in that and I heard you have chosen Slovakia isn’t it? ” asked his dad.
” Yes, dad is it a wrong choice? ” asked Ayush with anticipation.

” No not at all, have you notice the labels on our Tuna fish tins in the store? ” asked Jaganathan.
“No dad” replied Ayush.

“Of course, who am I asking you never gave any interest in business after all” laughed Jaganathan.
“Those come from Slovakia, I have a friend there Mr James he will help you out to settle and get comfortable with the surroundings”. Said his dad.
“Now go tell amma, and get your things ready and purchase your tickets and keep going son”.
Ayush went home took his mom’s blessings and made the arrangements of purchasing the nearest ticket and was getting his things ready.

He has been offered to teach English in a school named Zeman Midway Elementary school in the Slovakian capital, Bratislava. He was preparing himself for the trip.
