Feeling of Togetherness

Naina is 5 feet, small built, dimple chin, black hair(bob cut)and always donned in a t-shirt and blue jeans. Very talkative, very helpful. Everyone in her class loves her and she is a favorite of her teacher too.
Dark circles under her eyes, a sad face with no jokes tell that she is not fine and something is bothering her badly.
Hey! Naina, what happened? Is everything fine ? Where is that million dollar smile ? And Alex bombarded Naina with a multitude of questions.
Naina gave back a fake smile to Alex. She opened her laptop to show she is busy (trying to hide her teary eyes). Everyone in the class tried hard to cheer her up but failed. As soon as the class is over, she took her backpack without saying a word to her friends and went out of the class for home.
When she reached home she burst into tears and slept empty stomach.
In the evening when she woke up, she remembered her father's advice to note down in a piece of paper whatever is bothering you?
Why it is bothering you? And what you can do to overcome it?

She then starts writing everything in her diary.
Its her best friend whom she considers her soulmate, is going to another country for good.

She loves her friend so much that she finds it hard to see a single day without talking to her friend.
She reasons so what if we are not physically together
we can still
breath the same air,
feel each other in the warmth of sun,
can talk- if not regularly - may be in every 15 days or can chat on the messenger and above all the all-powerful string of love will keep us connected. What else do I need, and next day the class sees the same old cheery smiley Naina.

I'll keep this short. just a line from one of coldplays songs. " the hardest part is letting go, Not taking part"

Hey Nidhi,

I don't think people change with distance its just the daily demands of keeping yourself afloat in this world that forces them to shift priorities.
take care
Sneha

Hi edson_dias,

I agree with you, the more graceful we are in letting things go,the more closer we are to the divine. But we all are human and have our share of failings.
