'Breaking' News

Remember my cuz who spat the dummy on me few weeks ago on the phone? I wrote about it in the blogpost The Sound Of Silence. Eversince that day we never talked again until yesterday when I had to ring her due to an emergency. Her house was broken into...some of her valuables have been stolen, including her flash plasma TV, brandnew notebook, some jewellery etc etc. I heard the news from my mum and I just had to ring her. I felt so sorry for my cuz and I could only imagine the horror she went through when she came back from work to find out her front door broken and things taken. She was pretty upset on the phone, not because she lost things, but cos of the fear of knowing some stranger had been in her house and the fear of him returning. What do you do in a situation like this? Well, she's contacted the Police, immediatley installed a new alarm system and changed locks etc. But what do you do about the fear? Besides, she's pregnant with her first baby and I do feel really bad for her.

But one good thing happened from this break-in. I got a chance to call her and we immediately got back together as we were before...inseparable cousins that is :). It's amazing how we both didn't say anything about the last time we spoke on the phone. We just continued as if nothing bad happened bewteen us...not that we had to force ourselves to forget that either. It just happened. Some people are so easy to forgive and she's one such dear cuz of mine. And you know, my heart is made of glass...it breaks so very easily. And when I heard my cuz's house was broken into, my heart broke into pieces and even without my knowledge, I was dialling her cell number to find out if she was ok. And I'm glad that nobody was hurt...things can be replaced, but people can't be. When something like this happens, it makes you want to shake yourself into reality...the reason I didn't speak to her all this time was cos she yelled at me that last time we were on the phone and I doubted if it would be such a great idea to call her until I felt better. But if something had happened to her yesterday during that break-in, imagine how much I'd have suffered due to to my stubborness and arrogance. Life has a way of reminding you not to stay angry for too long...not to put off telling people you love and care about them. I'm so glad my cuz is ok! As for my BREAKING heart, I'm glad I have one such heart too...or else I'd be feeling awkward to ring her even yesterday. Yep, so a house gets BROKEN into, it becomes BREAKING news in the family and a distant heart suddenly starts BREAKING too :). You've just got to love someone...that's why!

Have a good one guys! And hey each time your heart breaks, be glad it's breakable, cos that means you truly FEEL.

Regarding doubts: i almost let them recently in and almost lost someone very close and special. And i cant agree more - things can be replaced, people - never...

it is sure an unpleasant and scary feeling when someone broke into your house. but better this than having a broken heart because someone you love and care about isnt with you because you let your anger and doubt and pride out.

I am glad you are back to your cousin. Though i am sorry it was such a terrible accident that brought you guys back to each other..


hugs!!

PREETI said...

ohhhh man! tatz bad...

i hd a really good friend whoz mum was murdered durin a break-in...n sadly, his dad had passd away juz a yr before tat...it ws TERRIBLE really...i still cannot fathom what he must be goin thru...n lately the only gurl he truly loved, ditched him for someone else...ur rite keshi when u say things can be replaced, but never people...

u n all of us shud b glad for who we have really...without whom we'd be nothin...

AakASH!!! said...

Somethings need to be broken, before youc an build something else on it. Hai na?

Vrij said...

Not the most ideal way to break the wall between u two, but then God does bring in unusual circumstances to make things happen. U never know whats gonna happen next!

Łóòň Ġãĺ said...

Its never about the things!
My mom actually saw the guy with her own eyes and she couldn't sleep for the next three nights until she HAD to go to India leaving me behind alone in this house!
I used to go sleep at a friend's place at night but in the mornings the local cops (hot guys aaah ;p) used to come and check on me ... and they kept doing that for the next 4 days!
We got letters from counselling centers for totally anonymous emotional support. And because of the condition my mom was in I kept insisting her to go but in vain.
Its been a year now but we still feel so uncomfortable going down there ... even though we're always with the alarms on.

Considering your cousin's pregnant ... no matter what she says ... she will unconsciously be thinkin about the burglar coming back (though he would NEVER make that stupid mistake!). Its best she goes for some emotional help ... these counsellors can be really helpful!
Or she could go and stay at a friend's place or call someone over .

Anyway .. there's at least one good outcome of the whole episode ... and thats you're back together .. which is really great and am happy for both of you!!
Do keep calling her and make sure she's not stressed coz that could affect the baby esp if she's in her first or third trimester.

God! thats a whole lot of crap i wrote there! lol

vEENs said...

Ohhhh! so good to hear that u patched up :)

and sad to hear abt her break-in :(

**And hey each time your heart breaks, be glad it's breakable, cos that means you truly FEEL.

So right!

Have a good day Keshi :)

*~*Sameera*~* said...

That's great dear!Glad for you both :)

Sorry was away to India and then to SL on short notice.

Have a rocking weekend Babes.Hugsss

priya said...

That is very sad Keshi. Let alone the goods have gone and life saved. As said, you can always replace or buy other things but not people. Hope she is doing ok now.

Steph said...

Well something good came out of it. Blood is thicker than water as they say.

SambY said...

thts great that u made up... sumthimes when u dont talk for long...its gets ore and more difficult to patch up things... good i am happy for u

Jay said...

Sometimes it takes tragedy or a really bad event like this to make people remember that they're not really enemies.

I've never had anyplace broken into, but I've had somebody try. I got lucky cause he couldn't get in. I was home when it happened too. I had the phone calling the police in one hand and a gun in the other hoping like hell he didn't get in. Luckily there was a patrol car only a block away and they nabbed him. And then I moved the next month.

Pavi!!!! said...

ohhhhhhhh...darn!i feel so sorry for ur cousin..n u say shes pregnant?does she stay all alone?
n yeah, thank God its only things harmed or missing and not people.

n yeah..i know wat u mean..some ppl are sooooooooo hard to stay angry with!n thenager is just until the nxt time u talk to 'em . i share such a relp with a cpl of ppl :)

Have a gr8 weekend gurl!

di.di said...

sorry to hear that but nowadays even with alarms installed people do take chances..

Been there too. that time I felt very angry knowing that my privacy had been vandalized..

La vida Loca said...

lovely..thanks for the post. I need that

Arthur said...

Hi Keshi, too good you and your cousin are fine and OK.

Kinda this happened to me too. Once, when I was leaving school, 2 guys attacked me in order to take my back pack away from me.

Too good it was anly that, 'cause they could also steal my cell phone, my car, my wallet and even my keys of my home.

But it was 6 years ago, and I took over it.

As you said, things can be replaced, but people can't.

I was about to contact the police, but my Mother said no (I don't know why).

Have a nice weekend.

Big greetings, big hugs and big kisses

Sweet Dreams, from the bottom of my Heart:

KAYLEE said...

OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG KESHI!!!!!!! is she ok??????????

carolinagal said...

I'm glad to know you two are speaking again. Thats the beauty about family...we always find our way back. Sorry to hear about her break-in but glad no one was hurt.
Cheers!

maverick said...

hey..good to knw tht ur cuz is fine n tht shes gotten the security system replaced at the house...my dad experienced a similar thing once...when he was in another city...he was sleeping in his room n someone came n stole his wallet from the room...later it was found out tht the gang was a very notorious one...

good tht u r back on talkin terms with ur cuz again :)

im leaving trichy today...heading back to delhi...last exm..the course finishes today :)

τ ħ€ ĐάЎđяёάmёя said...

grt dat i got one more biggy sis :P

give her icchhe cleam from me :)

nd tell her not to panic ..its not good fol the lil baby :|

Ankur said...

Really feel bad to know abt the news, a lot of trouble will be caused i guess. I hope she has got Insurance for her house.

yes, its a terrible feeling i guess...**the fear of knowing some stranger had been in her house and the fear of him returning

But as they say keshi, alls well that ends well... guess u guys r back again, and u will be there as an emotional support for her :)

Yes, one cant be angry with somone for long :D

Hope she will be alright soon... :)

Cheers!!!

Donnnn said...

Good for you..sometimes we don't get a chance to tell someone how we feel. Life is too unpredictable to squander. Maybe my number will be called tonight while I'm sleeping..

if it is I want you to know how much I loved meeting you and sharing time with you Keshiroo.
Although our shells have never even met, I certainly feel like I know you from the inside out.
You made me think, made me laugh, made me feel, made me care..
you made a difference.

Thank You.

Nachi said...

hey Keshi!! *Mwaaaah Mwaaaah* :)

my granny's house was broken into last month. thankfully no one was at home. but the weird part was where the thieves stole all the taps. that's it..all the taps gone! everything else left untouched.

a breaking heart can be good. you make the argument sound so simple and yet convincing. somehow i find you to be very similar to a very very very special pal of mine named Saloni! you two are two gorgeous women who are the sunshine in the lives of all those whom you touch...

:)

Sweetstickychewy said...

This post reminds me about how a lot of good things come out of bad things.

***And hey each time your heart breaks, be glad it's breakable, cos that means you truly FEEL.

Loved what you said there Keshi.:)

Cheers!

Alok said...

So so true and rightly said.

Hey, you have an amazing Blog.

Keep rocking :)

AVIANA said...

Kesh girl!

wow..my heart goes to you and your cuz... the same situation happened to me years ago...however it was odd that although I had a roommate, only my stuff were taken..none of her stuff were touched...

people kept telling me to doubt her...maybe she did it..it's just so odd everything of yours was taken but not hers...it has to be her...

i never doubted her but our friendship dissipated regardless...

truth be told...tragedy/heartbreak brings people together...

you are right...those moments tear people apart and they also bring people together..

you must cherish those moments you have together because you are right what if something happened to her? we can only thank the stars...

the fear..there's nothign you can do about it..it will always be there...eventually it will disappear but it is with her....

be there for her like you are right now...

have a nice one chica!

sorry i've been M.I.A. for a long while..

AVIANA

SambY said...

with reference to ur comment on my blog.....

fingers said...

Why would the burglar break into the house again when he knows all the good stuff is gone now...

Niyara - Asian Rocxs said...

weird but amazing how finding something terrible has happened makes you forget everything in less than a second. And your true true feelings for that person come rushing back as if they had never gone sour. i love that.

Pecos Blue said...

Good on You!

Nadine said...

It is scary to have that happen to you. I hope your cousin will be fine. At least the good that came out of it was you two reconciling.

Tys on Ice said...

was so glad to hear tht something gud came out of something so terrible...

but then i have always felt tht a true friend is only recognized when they stand with u in crisis, and not always in gud times...

btw, i hope the bastards who did it gets caught

Pri said...

thinking of it in a positive way---atleast one good came outta it...u guys got back talking :)

cheers!!

Ghost Particle said...

well Keshi...every time i fight wit sumone...tragedy brings me back to them...we dont have enough time to be angry wit people. :) ur d best for doing what u best do...care bout ppl.

and sometimes it can be freakin funny! i didnt talk wit my housemate for 2 years...but staying at the same apartment! and one day the there are no electricity and we talked! sigh,.

Ria said...

This reminds me of the saying "Every dark cloud has a silver lining". Although its sad what happened to ur cousin but it also gave u the chance to get back together. :)

It has happened with me too.
