The Sky is Blue - Upasana Mukherjee
Today is different for Sonia ,she is watching the morning sky filled with white clouds. Different flower are smiling in their blowing faces .The birds are chirping merrily. The squirrel are fidgeting with their nuts .A melodious tune coming from far and away pervades the surrounding. Everything appears so beautiful.
On 29th September 2020,were the darkest days of her life .In the evening, her parents took her to the doctor. When the doctor came with the results, he told her to wait outside the room with her aunty .After some time her parents came out the room . They had tears in their eyes.
Sonia asked” Mom! Dad! What happened ?”
They didn’t speak a word .
At night before tucking her to bed her mom told her about the diagnosis of the doctor.
In the morning, she, she felt gloomy ,sad and sick . In the evening she got shifted to a hospital bed. She was the only one there. Her chemotherapy started. Slowly her hair fell out . She felt very unhappy. As days passed she felt more miserable. No one was allowed to meet her except her , nurse , and parent . Her parent now talked to her with their heads down .cried in her absence. These things made her very upset. Sometimes she used to look out the hospital window to see the bird and the white clouds floating the blue sky . She silently said to the clouds “Oh clouds! Please tell my parents and friends that I will come back “
While she was saying this sunlight peep through the clouds .
After a month ,she was allowed to go home . For her this was a sign of progress . But every few days she had to go back to the hospital for her chemotherapy. It was very painful but she withstood it courageously.
After six months of chemotherapy and check-ups and being trapped in a room, yesterday the doctor told her that she is finally cured.
She left the hospital room and went to the chamber of the doctor . When her mother thanked the doctor in the tearful eyes ,she could see the blue sky in her mothers eyes .
