Break the Bottle
Confident, bubbly and filled with life Simmi was entirely changed when I met her after her 4 years. She was not the same Simmi I know since my childhood.
What I can see and from where I can see I only saw a girl fully lost her own identity and confidence.
The girl who always used to be busy with her canvas and try to fill colors into it lost colors of life. I really wanted to ask her what changed her so much and before I can utter a word…She asked, “who is she?”
Has she really forgotten me, we were best friends, danced on so many numbers on every annual function of the school, college. We both loved to paint and so we always spend our time painting so much together.
On the other bench, I saw her mom talking to someone and I rushed to her to ask what happened to Simmi? Why she is behaving like this?
Aunty hugged me and said it’s good to see you but today she is like this because of us. That’s surprising for me, I thought not to ask more but she continued….
Simmi was doing good in her job and got transferred to Chennai and we insisted her to stay with her uncle and his family where she got molested, she immediately returned back with strong thought that we will listen to her and stand by her.
But her uncle cooked up another story in front of her dad before she could have said anything. She tried her best to tell us the truth but we failed as parents and not trusted her. She covered herself in a shell and went under major depression and affected her mental health.
By the time we realized our mistake her medical condition went on an extreme level and doctors told us she is suffering from amnesia. She is in a bottle which needs to be broken and I know with friends like you she will surely come out of it!!
I wish Simmi get recover soon and parents should learn to trust their kids before anyone else so that their kids don’t get themselves locked in the bottle from where they wish to come out but not able to, they need love and trust of their family. Let’s break the bottle of depression….just break the bottle!!
