Because, I Didn't Give Up!

Because, I Didn't Give Up!

2 mins 320 2 mins 320

I'm outside my doctor's clinic. Tears in my eyes and I'm pathetically depressed today. Never knew, I would be under these circumstances some day.

This is the result of various situations I've gone through last year. The story goes back to the time when I had to visit Delhi for my further studies. Nostalgic and home stricken, I never wanted to leave my home but anyhow I had to. So, finally came the time when I packed up all my luggage and headed towards Delhi.

Unknown about the surroundings and people, I got shifted somehow in a hostel and everything was settled finally.

Classes started as usual. Initially, it was good to be there in a normal routine. Everything was going on nicely and I was simply fine.


Monsoon arrived and some areas of Delhi were flooded with dirty and polluted water. Unfortunately, my hostel was also located in one of those areas. Due to the polluted water, I fell ill and was admitted to the hospital. After some days, I was diagnosed with dengue and felt terrible.

It was a new place for me and tough for me to handle the situation without my parents. But, I was grateful to my hostel warden who took care of me in my difficult days. Medications continued for months and somehow I was discharged.

After coming back to the hostel, I was recovering gradually but not well. Due to the hectic schedule, I started gaining weight and my body lacked much of vitamins and minerals. The environment, water, food nothing was favourable for me.


It was getting very difficult to manage. After one year, I finally came back to my hometown. With devastating health-conditions and situations, again I had to see my doctor. There, being miserably overweight I was told to shed about ten to twelve kgs. I started controlling my diet, exercising with a lot of effort. Tears used to roll down my eyes while my body went through those stretches.


But, this is life. I didn't give up and managed to lose about ten kilos finally. So now when I look to myself, I feel grateful for the fact that I didn't give up.

Life is a mixture of sorrows and happiness and we have to go through various stages. The only thing that matters is how we manage our difficult situations and move on!
