Soul Sisters Of Kolkata Will Relate To This Amazing Short Story And Make Their Eyes Wet
As Piya browsed through the old pics of her class 10th school reunion and finishing the tub of Chocolate Fudge Ice Cream, she couldn’t help but think how the five girls in the photo have evolved and how their life has changed. Her best friend and closest among all in the group was getting married in six months, a day before her birthday. She got a call from her when she was hearing an earful from her boss.
“I’m so happy for you Rene. So happy. I will call you once I’m home.” She disconnected the phone in a haste.
On her way back to her flat, where she used to stay there alone, all the thoughts of her school, all her days with Rene, all the gossips flashed in her mind. She couldn’t help but think how her life will change now and how hers will exactly be the same. No boys, no home, no marriage… just a hefty bank account. Money sure couldn’t buy her happiness!
“Will go shopping next week. Keep your weekend free.” Rene was excited.
“Oh yes… sure!” She said. Last few days of girls’ day out she thought.
She kept the phone down.
She flipped through every picture, every album, every scrap book, every tiny little bits of her and Rene’s memories. She felt as if someone was taking away her soul sister away from her. She just wanted to be alone for some time, not in a mood to answer calls, to go partying or to even browse through Facebook for that matter. She was immensely happy and sad at the same time. The questions of where she was heading to and what she was doing with her life crossed her mind a thousand times. There comes a time in everyone’s life when a person sees herself or himself standing at the middle of two roads. Mid-twenties are horrifying for every teenager. Either you are getting pushed to get married to someone unknown or you are getting pushed to do further studies after you have managed to live a life of corporate slavery. It’s difficult to sort things out. And Piya didn’t have a boyfriend shoulder to cry on also. So she just decided to order another tub of Ice cream.
“ORDER PLACED” Her laptop screen flashed and almost immediately the bell rang. Piya was confused.
As soon as she opened the door, there she was… Rene standing with a bottle of wine the biggest smile on her face.
“Tui bhabli toke aami eka chhere biye korte chole jabo, tai to?” Rene smirked.
“Your fiancée will hate me if you…” Rene stopped her in between and hugged her tight.
“Sisters before misters… remember?” They both started laughing.
That night they sat on the terrace of Piya’s flat and walked through fifteen years of their friendship, accompanied by the wine and the tub of Ice cream. Soul sisters they were!
