Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass ...
Its about learning to dance in the rain!!!
There are many things in life that will catch your eye
but only a few will catch your heart... Pursue those

This is my small effort to make you smile for a while...

Oh Dear, I did not know that it was just a cage….




His hand shivered as he wrote this letter, he knew it was his last letter to her or to anyone for that matter. His heart cramped every time he breathe, how would it not? She was his breathe which now was lost forever. He wrote and wrote, he had no intention of meaning anything but he wanted to tell out everything that he felt for one last time. He had dreams for her, had loved her immensely. Nothing of that had mattered to her; everything seemed so little to her that she did not bother once about letting all the hopes go and shattering all his dreams.

He took those last few steps, he never wanted to do this but the emotions so strong had pulled him back there. He dropped dead beside her grave, he cried and cried until the tears refused to drop from his eyes but he was ready to bleed for her. His daughter, the girl who was goddess for him, his precious love who had taught him what selfless love meant had done the unthinkable, she had quit for no reason. He would have done anything for her but all he was doing today was placing this letter on her grave, hoping it to be read and to be answered.  As he left smiling at his stupidity, harsh wind blew and the letter flipped open,

“Oh Dear, I saw it as a little shelter where you got all that you wanted. For it took the harsh wind and the burning flames, it did protect you from the cruel eyes.
Oh Dear, I thought it was my soul which I gave you, I hugged you dearly as I thought you need all the warmth, you were my music, you were my life, and were you all that only to make me cry?
Oh Dear, It once hosted you, held you dearly, bled for you, lived for you. But all you did was to give up and break free. How did you not see, thing that held you for all these days and which you broke mercilessly, was my heart. Oh how I did not know it was just a cage for you! Now I know I am to be blamed for I am responsible for the broken cage”

The letter which would never be read, lay there with no one to pick it up….


P.S: A very heart touching incident of young girl who quit on her life, left me deeply thinking about her parents, especially her father who loved her deeply.
Please help spread the message "life is very very  precious, live it fully !!!"

Touching...

Nuthan said...

We live with lots of pleasing assumptions.. reality check now and then is a must.
on the other hand, to end one's own life is a decision made in haste, clouded in agony and failing to see a reason for Living.

They fail to see a reason to live.. and they think they are not courageous or able enough to step ahead in life..

But in reality.... It takes a whole lot of courage and drive-factor to end one's life on their own.... alas! they don't realize that the same amount of courage and drive is more than enough to LIVE life.

Ranjana Bhat said...

Well said!! Life is really short to enjoy it fully.. Leaving it half the way is not a wise thought.. Keeping writing such awesome ones!!

Uma said...

how sad, Ramya! It must be so devastating for the parents to come to terms.
A poignant post!

Ramya said...

@Rahul Bhatia: yeah thats the prayer left now!

@Arvind Kulkarni: Yes the incident was so painful so had to share it with all of you

@Rajneesh: Welcome to Chittrana, Dhanyavaad

Ramya said...

@Santhosh Kumar: Dharuna ri!

@Raksha: Yes dear its been very disturbing to everyone of us

@Ranjana: Hope somehow we could motiviate !!!

@Uma: yes dear cant imagine the state of her parents!!!

Ramya said...

@Nuthan: you have posted a really thoughtful comment Nuthan. How true it takes immense strength to kill oneself but then if they pause then and think that the same amount of courage can be diverted to fight out the difficulties, things will be so good.
And we all should keep thinking that our life is not only our own its actually weaved and strung between so many lives and the impact of such decision will affect everybody so badly!!!!

I wish I had some means to educate people how beautiful life is...

Vijay said...

very sad.....
but heart touching story

Nuthan said...

@Ramya - that's very true... our life is not just our own..
Your blog is one of your medium.. and you always portray the fact that life is beautiful and worth living through majority of your posts..
Awareness on this can be spread in great deal by Teachers, Parents and Guardians..

rekspoursout said...

Touching indeed!

I guess there's an oversight error...second para...

"His daughter, the girl who was goddess for him, his precious love who had thought him..."

It should be taught...isn't it?

I hope you don't mind me pointing the error. No ill intention.

Ramya said...

@Rekspoursout: Hey Welcome to Chittrana, yes the incident is really heart touching.

Thanks a lot :) for correcting. definitely I dont mind you help me improvise :) Thanks a lot again :D
Keep coming back.

Nivedita Chirantan said...

very sad incident and very delicately put by you... can i say beatifully written??? because it was and i dont know the appropriate word to write for such sadness...

Jyoti Mishra said...

heart wrenching..

sometimes people take decisions in a jiffy without thinking that their lives are just theirs..
it's fragments are embedded in others too

Nilanjana Bose said...

Moving! So terrible for the family tc

Prashanth said...

Frankly speaking, don't know what to say. It just leaves you with a million questions in mind. I don't know how this will sound, but may be the parents can adopt or sponsor girl child and through this they may be able to relieve those happy memories, if not fully.

Ramya said...

@Niveditha: Hi Dear, thanks a lot for your encouragement. yeah the incident is really sad. pls help spread the message.

@Jyothi Mishra: yeah its very sad that people dont see the big spectrum.

@NB: yeah very very sad for the family.

Women, you all have bigger responsibility as you connect to more and more people, Please keep encouraging everyone that life is precious.

Ramya said...

@Prashanth: the only saddest thing I did not mention in the post was that the girl herself was an adopted child. they are now again childless, now do you think even this solution helps??? Life is been very cruel to them. hope they find peace somehow.

And the biggest problem is this suicide how do we motivate people to live fully and face all the issues strongly.

Prashanth said...

Worse thing that could ever happen in one's life is to see their children no more! Pray their soul be made strong enough to gulp a gallon.

Sigh..

Prashanth said...

That's really sad to hear. I don't think there is a solution for this. Hope somehow they find any other way to reduce their sadness.
