It seems yesterday only, when she was a little girl, as innocent as it can be. Who can forget going to Nani Ke ghar every year. She with her cousin going out to have tiki and golgappe under scorching sun was a child's play.
Mummy scolded and commented but who was listening. She was in her dream world where things were plain simple, no complications.
Then why things turned upside down and she became an adult in a night when her cousin forced himself on her.
He was her friend, brother, mate and mentor.
She lost the meaning of relationships that ever existed.
When such meanings are lost one becomes indifferent and indifference hurts the most, even more than kindness.
She is now indifferent, indifferent to the world !
