This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 23; the twenty-third edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for this month is FREE.
Letter to Me
Hi Ketan,

I want you to do a small favor to me. Please give the letter to Sheetal. I cannot meet her or speak to her. I hope you will do it. Sorry for the trouble. Thank you.

Letter to Sheetal
My Dear Best Friend Sheetal,

How are you? I hope you are happy in your own world. I really thought to meet you personally but I was not having the courage to come over to speak to you. I know everything between us is over.

It is more than two years now we knew each other. Even I can recollect the date when we first met or when we first interacted with each other. I remembered all these days just because it involved you in it. These last two years can never be forgotten by me. You always made me feel that I belonged to this world and you always motivated me in some way or the other. It is due to you I was able to regain my confidence which I had lost. I can just say you were the sunshine in my life.

You knew I had lots of problems in my life. Even after that you had the patience to hear my words so that you can guide me properly. Whenever I had to face a problem I never used to get afraid of it, because back in my mind I knew you were there. I used to get emotional for no reason but you used to tell me "Karthik dont worry everything will be alright". I had also reciprocated to our friendship by helping you in whatever way possible. Sometimes even I used to give solutions to your problems. Then you used to smile and say "Thanks a lot Karthik you are a gem". The friendship which we shared with each other can never be described in words.

The days we spent together by just speaking for long hours, the gifts which we shared with each other, the numerous friendship poems which we must have shared with each other, the moments of surprises which we gave to each other can never be erased from my memory.

The two years passed by but our friendship blossomed by every passing day. I am sure if there is friendship in this world then it would be named after us not even after Jay Veeru of Sholay.

But fate had its own wishes. From last two weeks you hardly spoke with me. Whenever I used to try and interact with you, you somehow made some excuse and vanish away. I tried many times to ask you what is the misunderstanding. I begged in front of you, but nothing happened. One fine day I got a chance to speak to you. I can thank God for this opportunity. Atleast I can try to find out the reason of our misunderstanding. I am still juggling with the words which you spoke over phone that day

Ring Ring Ring...The phone rang. My heart must have pumped more blood this time.
Sheetal you picked and with your sweet voice you told "Hello Who is this?" I was surprised, how come you didnt had my number. many questions popped in my mind, but the only thing which mattered was to clear the misunderstanding. With full of excitement I said "I am Karthik, Sheetal How are you?" . There was a pause of some 5-10 seconds. Then came your voice. "It shouldnt matter to you.I am not interested to keep any contact or relationship with a loser like you.I want to be FREE from your useless friendship. I dont want to be in the clutches of your useless friendship". My voice trembled even more and I asked "What happened , can you please tell me what is the problem. If I did any mistake please forgive me. Can you please explain". You spoke very fast "I dont want you in my life any more. I dont like you. Please leave me and dont contact me again". Then you banged the phone.

Sheetal I have no idea what has happened. But if I did anything which you didnt like, I am really sorry for that. Please forgive me. I will never come back to your life again. I am feeling like a sinner when you said our friendship is a useless friendship. I didnt feel bad when you said me as a loser but you treated our friendship as useless. You told me that I should leave you FREE. You were always free, but now you will be free from me permanently. I cannot even imagine a life without your wonderful friendship. You had, you are and you will always be my friend. Eventhough you have cut our relationship from your end, but I will always be your friend. Deep within I will always have the respect for you. But you leaving me in between like this cannot be digested by me. I am going to end my Life today. As soon as I go to heaven I will ask God to fulfil all your wishes and desires.

What happened after
1) Sheetal got the letter but it didnt matter to her what has happened to Karthik.
2) Karthik attempted suicide by jumping from the balcony. But it didnt end in a suicide, on the contrary he lost both his legs.
3) Why Karthik attempted suicide is it because a) Was Karthik in love with Sheetal or b) Was it the loss of a deep friendship or c) Was it the broken trust which Karthik experienced with Sheetal or many other questions. Karthik never said to me what is the reason.
4) Sheetal is happy with her own life. I even heard that she has a boyfriend now.
5) Karthik is working in a small firm.

Moral : Sheetal is FREE from the friendship, but Karthik is crippled for his lifetime to the wheelchair clutches. It is very difficult to understand relationship.

Sounds like a true story. You have done a good job describing faithfully. One can always pass judgements post facto but I have been through this kind of stuff and I know how crazy such things can be. Hope he is moving on with life forgetting her. Best of luck for the Blog-a-ton. Do check out my post - In search of Freedom

no offence to the story or the writeup...but karthik seems like quite a shady character..i mean attempting suicide even for love is just not the solution to anything.infact it would creep the girl out even more.and in the end , it was he who lost out more on life isn't it? the girl has moved on big time..from the looks of the letter, it also seems like the guy never told the girl what he felt about her--he still addressed her as 'best friend'..that makes it a little unfair blaming the girl as well..anyways, all said, i know such things happen in reality too..just wish they didn't!with age and time, you realise that 'falling in love' isnt everything..its the staying in love that actually matters--and it has to work both ways!all the best for BAT! :)you can read my entry here---FREE

Well, a different treatment to the theme. a Letter, nicely thought out. Supposing it to be a fiction, suicide is never a solution.Good luck for BAT.What Being Free meant for her

@The Fool: Thank you. Forgetting is the difficult part.Atleast you realised it is true.

It is really painful when some one you like/love leave you without any reason. But suicide is definitely not the solution. Good post

While i agree that it may be hard at times to understand the dynamics of a relationship or even to make them work in the right direction, i cannot understand or condone a person subjecting himself to injury at the loss of an essentially hollow relationship.For if it wasn't hollow, it would not have given way to begin with.

There is always a reason why relationships break...only thing we close our eyes to the facts which hurt us ...
Ketan Says:

@Srikanth : Yes suicide is not the solution

@Brijendra Singh : I think the relationship from the girls end was very hollow.

@Aativas : Well said...

A different take on the topic. In this world, the most vaguely understood facts are relationships. Its never worth to sacrifice for a relationship which is hollow.

@Nidhi : Thank you

@Cherry Blossom : Thank you for dropping . Karthik realized the relationship is very much hollow..

Giving ones life is not worth for anything, I mean ANYTHING. Unfortunately, Karthik learned it the hard way

@Vikran Pyati : Yes you are right, but I found it difficult to make it understand to karthik.

@Pal : Thank you
