*** A post from my drafts that was written during the chennai flood season! I wrote this letter to the THREE people I love most in this world. ***
Dear amma, appa, paati,
First thing I have been doing, this entire week, as soon as I wake up is call your landline number. The call gets connected, your phone rings, but I never received any response from your end. After a while, I would call your mobile numbers. Only to hear the not reachable automated message.
It’s been 3 days now since I spoke to you all. I’m worried. I cry. I feel bad.
Many people will NEVER understand what I’m going through now. Being your only child….being a girl who is staying far away from her parents and grandparent…. And all of you being senior citizens… Makes me worry more!
I can’t just hope you are doing okay and think it’s just the phone connectivity issues and power cuts in chennai that is making you unreachable.
I want to talk to you all soon. I want to know you are all okay. I want to hear your voice.
Did the flood water come into our house? Are you guys safe? Do you have all the basic necessities? I don’t know. Sigh!
Please God. Help them. Protect them. Keep them safe.
P.S.: I was able too reach my parents after 4 long days that week. They are okay now.
