LETTER TO MY FRIEND

LETTER TO MY FRIEND

3 mins 249 3 mins 249

I was so worried about my dear friend Rohini. She was my best friend from my childhood. We educated in the same school and joined in the same college. She has one weak point, she doesn’t share her pain with anyone including me, she thinks that she doesn’t want to disturb others peace. I can realize her sadness from her face, I used to compel her to tell, then she would tell me and cry out, I used to comfort her and later she would be relieved. At once her pain is done; she would glee that’s the confirmation. I love her so much. She is like a sister to me, at times she is like a mother to me, at times she is my mentor and she is the one who understands me very well


Just a few days before the lockdown, she broke up with her boyfriend Deepak. He cheated on her with another woman, Rohini was shocked to see him kissing the other woman in our library, and she slapped him and broke up with him. She was so upset. As usual, I urged her and she shared with me her pain and finally, she was relieved from that bitterness.


In the lockdown, another bitterness struck her, her father’s death. He was affected by covid -19 and passed away, he had other health issues like hypertension and diabetes. Rohini didn’t tell me anything about it. I came to know this from her neighbour Nasim. I called Rohini, she didn’t attend, I texted her she didn’t respond. I know that she is in severe pain. I can only comfort her but as usual, she isn’t sharing her pain with me. I called Nasim daily and asked her about Rohini, she said that she wasn’t communicating with anyone. I can’t go to see her due to lockdown.


“What to do?” I couldn’t rest, my mind wandered, I got up with an idea. I took my letter pad and note a letter to my Rohini and rolled it and tied it with the legs of Nina, my pet dove. She is a good messenger dove, I sought Nina’s help to deliver letters to Rohini when we were kids, it’s been long now, but I believe that Rohini will respond to this letter.


“Take the letter to Rohini Nina” I patted her head, she flew into the sky, I watched her until she disappeared,

“Please Rohini, read my letter and share your pain” I leaned against the pillar and waited for the response, the sun began to set, I believe that Nina delivered the message. I can only hope. The stars began to twinkle, the day commenced with Hope.
