The Murderer

October 15, 2010

It was a phone call at 8 in the morning that woke me up, I could hear my friend gasping as she was telling the truth she discovered about herself an hour before. I tried to recall what she just confessed to me through her phone.

I couldn’t believe it , I had to visit her to find out if it was true, I was ready in half an hour, the cab arrived to pick me, it took almost an hour and a half to reach her flat in Worli from Bandra through the busy traffic in Mumbai. I could see the construction of new Sea Link connecting Worli and Bandra. I wished if it was completed by now so as to reach her fast.

As soon as the door bell rang, she opened the door for me. She almost fell into tears as soon as she saw me, I hugged her tight, trying to comfort her, it didn’t do any good. I had to find a solution to her problem.

“Nitya, go take a shower, lets go and consult  a doctor”. She didn’t utter a word, she came back in about 20 minutes. We took the lift down and I drove her car towards the nearest gynecologist. She was in a relationship with her co-worker for almost six months now. I never thought their relationship would go so deep. But it has, the gynecologist conformed it after the check up.

We decided to go to Bayview near Marine Drive. She was still not talking, I said, ” Either you speak up,or I am leaving, this is just to much of silence.” She lifted her head from the table, her eyes still filled. I continued, “Aren’t you considering speaking about this with Roshan ?. ”

She finally spoke, “No I can’t , he would not accept this, I don’t want him to be hurt.” I raised my eyebrows , she continued, “It’s like we have just begun our relationship and never thought of marriage till now.” I interrupted ,”Huh , how could you not tell about it after all that’s happened with you.”

No Ajay, ” It’s just not happening, the day all messed up was partially because of me, I walked into his flat late night, he was drunk because he didn’t get the promotion he deserved, he asked me to leave but I refuted and spent the night with him. He was sorry in the morning and he did ask me take the pills. But I didn’t and I never told him.”

So what’s next Nitya ? ARE YOU GONNA KILL YOUR CHILD ? , she took off from the table in a hurry and I could see her getting a cab as soon as I reached the exit. I took her car to the flat, her flat was locked, I dropped the keys underneath the door. I got a call from her in the night. She asked me to come to a hospital , I was bit hesitant , but she forced me to. I was worried if she was gonna do what I had shouted her.

I reached the hospital, the hospital policies required another person to sign the document for abortion. I don’t know why I did it, but eventually I was part of a murder. From that day, things went different, we never spoke much.I did miss her, but the realisation of a murder kept myself away from her.

I was forgetting everything till the phone rang again, it only said , “You are a murderer.” It was a male voice.

Story till date

Hey…how are you guys ?wondering why am I not blogging this days…er…it’s mainly because that I just don’t get enough time to think much and come up with a good post….so I decided to write this and let you guys know what I am upto for the past two and half  months…

It all began with the classes beginning back in July….home works …tests …assignments …just one flop film in between…and a good break during Onam where I went out with my friends for Onasadya …I also manged not to talk to anyone and stopped using the social media for some time…when I realized it was such a bad idea …from two weeks or so…I find time to chat and visit my friends…also read 3 books in between….

We had the Course Completion[CC] exam last week ..which we are supposed to pass…in order to be allowed to write the main exam in December …I flunked in two….in the two…I managed to pass one with the help of the marks in the other paper …hence as of now …passed 4 papers …one failed ..and one awaiting result ..which could go either way…but I am sure to get CC in any case….assignments carry 40 marks …and exams 60…there is assignments to help in case of any problem…

The exam is fast approaching and the time we have for it is very less…and even the teachers admit it …it was probably a wrong decision by the management for making the new batch attempt two groups of ICWAI intermediate in one go with in six months……A few of my classmates have opted out one group …so I guess they are bit lucky to go into the exams in December…  I have decided to write two groups and concentrate in one….

Post December it should be a fun time till the results come out around the first week of March 2011… I would be happy if I get through any one group but preferably two …since studying the same all over again…could be boring …

I am not sure ..when will I get back to my blog next time …but sure there would be one more post before my exams and post exams.
