A story of a 21 year old girl Ankita who came from a humble background and was hardworking, smart, talented and good looking. A topper in school, Vice President of the students council at college, she was proposed by Abhi who was just like her but not so career focussed. He was mad in love with her.
Ankita was already in a long distance relationship with Vaibhav who was studying at IIT DELHI. She felt sympathetic towards Abhi as he had no parents and a tough life.
Things changed when Abhi was found dead drowned in the sea after Ankita broke up with him as she was moving to Bombay from Cochin to pursue her MBA.
She was upset but soon recovered. Abhi’s grandpa had said to her at abhis funeral that one should never “belittle love ❤️ ”
She dint care. She was blinded by her ambition. She moved on to do her MBA from a premier institute in Bombay.
She made notes, did sprints,juggled through the chores and was so much engrossed in all that that she never slept. She became over enthusiastic about every little thing and became a reservoir of energy. At the same time, her behaviour was slowly changing. She got angry over pity things, jogged for hours, remembered every single line of the books, did everything to a limitless extent.
Things changed when her parents once found out the love letters from her bedroom. From there on,She became quiet, lost confidence, got panic attacks, became anxiety prone, could not study or jog, put on lot of weight.
She felt depressed, useless, lonely. She threw things in her room. She cut her hand. She tried to die….twice !
Preeti Shenoy has thrown light on people suffering from bipolar disorder. What is it and how one can recover from it. Millions of people from across the globe face it but do not try to come out of it or accept it! How one can get back to a normal life and things can change if we strive to!
Ankita was later taken to many psychiatric s. She was admitted to a mental hospital. A topper at school, an all rounder and a talented girl had suddenly lost to the tricks of life!
A beautiful story of how she recovered and came back to tracks!
At times in life degrees and grades don’t matter……. love and time dies
At times ….it’s just good to be a mediocre!
