I’m writing this post with a very heavy heart.My hands are shaking as I type the words.
I lost a dear friend to the cruel hands of death on the 18th of this month.I came to know about it only today. I still cant believe she has left us. Its so strange that on 17th,I got a message from her on Orkut saying that she was enjoying the delhi winter thoroughly and the very next day destiny played such a cruel joke on her. She had even uploaded a few snaps of a recently held school-reunion that she attended.I saw them yesterday and scrapped her to tell her how lucky she was to have had the opportunity to visit our school and friends again after so many years,little knowing that she will never get to read my message,let alone reply to me.When I didnt get a revert back from my friend I got in touch with a common friend to know about the details of the reunion. Thats when I was given the unfortunate news.
Since then I’ve been wondering why did it have to be her?She was such a fun-loving person.Caring,very very talkative,sweet,immensely loving.And most importantly a Mother to her 7year old daughter.Why?Why didnt she get to spend her life to the fullest tending to her little one,her family?
She has an ailing father,a disabled sister who depended upon her.She had lost her mother very early in her life and she had taken it up on herself to look after her family from then on.
And now,is her daughter being forced by her fate to tread the same path as her mother?Why is life so unfair?
I have no answers.I’m completely at a loss of words.
All I can do is pray to God that He gives the family,strength and will power to withstand the terrible loss.
Goodbye,Sindhu!I’ll miss you.
