Oh, Sne! :-(
I'm way depressed tonight and no, its got nothing to do with me or my life. Just heard that my little sissy didn't get through her final year BDS paper in college - and let me tell you a little bit about her. Sne's about 3 years younger than I am. We're first cousins. We're both only kids to our parents and hence we grew up together like own siblings. I'm incredibly fond of her and very very protective of her. When we grew up, Sne always topped - right from kindergarten to primary to high school to higher secondary and she made her way through to a premier dental college in Chennai. Not just academics, Sne was all over the place. Sne was an awesome athlete, good singer, dancer, she was the school head girl etc etc - You get the drift - She's always been a topper, a super talented child - in my lingo, a STAR! Even though I lived away from her for almost 4 years, things didn't change as much. We still talked, we started where we left off. Tonight's a rude rude shock for our entire fam - Amma's voice was so shaky when she talked about it tonight. I am unable to believe it - of course, its not such a big deal. People fail in college. Professional courses are tough. Maybe its because of all the hype that surrounded Sne. She was to be our first "doc" in the family and we'd even planned where to throw her a party. That's how optimistic we were about her passing her exams. Anyway, I just talked to her and we talked for barely 2 seconds - she couldn't even control her emotions. I wished I could be with her tonight - give her a nice, big, tight hug. If there's one thing that my family has taught me, its to stand by our loved ones throughout, especially in times like these. Just to let my baby sister know that I'm there for her and that she's going to get through these 6 ridiculously tough months of her life. I'm positive something "awesome" is awaiting you around the corner - love you Sne, stay strong, I know you'll fight this out. Muah!
