A SINGLE CALL

I still remembered that pleasant days of my childhood  when I used to play with my best friend Tanishka.We were very close to each other. Everybody was jealous of our friendship and wants to break it but, there practice always fails. 
It was 2nd of March we were in class 4. We were coming from our school with our report card of 3rd assessment with wonderful marks to show our parents. When we reached our house . We saw that tanishka's parents were packing their belongings. Tanishka’s asked many questions from them that were they are going? She is going? When they will come? But they didn’t answer any questions just they told they are going for some work and they will come within one day or few days. Taniskha felt relaxed and again asked with whom she will stay as she is so young? Mother replied “she had arranged for a maid and she will took care of yours by saying her mother gave her a mobile phone so that she can talk with her and they bid farewell to us. 
Next day, Taniskha was very sad as her parents are not there. I supported her and try to deviate her mind. But, she didn't take any interest.
Three days crossed, no called came so she called their parents but no reply.

From her attitude, behaviour I predict that she is sad but she didn't show that she is sad. 
We used to play in our vacations but this time we had not play because she mostly used to stay in her house and very rarely she used to come out. From my window her house can be seen very nicely so I used to see that: - she used to sit in a chair keeping her phone front of him and she used to write and scratch on the table or on the paper. I feel very bad about her.

One day I saw her maid was going to market. I ran towards her and asked for the keys of the house. She taught for a while and gave me the keys of the house. I thanked her and went to Tanishka's house. She was very much disturbed and shouted on me and ordered me to leave her house but I had not did this. I tried to call her after few minutes she gave me a tight hug and started crying. After that I asked her "what happened to you please share with me" she said "okay".

She started telling that one week before she called her parents after 10 calls they pick up the phone and said “why you are disturbing us we are busy here so please..Go and enjoy your life and let me also and when we will free we will call you ok"and hanged up the call. After that call she started waiting for the call and many times she tried but that words prevented her to call. I interrupted and said " let it be if they don't care of yours then why you are caring focus on your studies and I am there every time" she said "okay" and promised me that she will don't think more about them.
Slowly slowly she stop thinking about them and led its own life..
As time does not wait for anybody we reached to class 10.
 
And,
5 years went but they didn't call once also to ask whether her daughter is alive or not. We gave our ICSE examination and we were topper in different sections she belongs to science group and me from commerce we were very happy from our results and satisfied. Keeping stone on her heart Taniskha called her parents to tell about her performance and as usual they replied the same. This time she was disappointed by the reply and said leave me alone. As it was difficult time period for her so I left her alone. Leaving her I went to my grandparent’s house to tell about my marks.
After 1 hour of going tanishka's maid called me. She said me that Taniskha has went somewhere crying and she also asked where she was going Taniskha didn't give her reply. Then maid requested me to go and search Taniskha. I said okay and hanged up the call.
 
I thought for a while where she can go when she is cry. Then I remembered whenever she is sad she used to go on lake side and sat there and talk to the clouds, air and express her feeling. 
As there is a lake at a distance of 6km so I was very sure she would had gone there only. So I bid farewell to grandparents and ran towards the lake.
Only after few distances was left to reach the lake I saw that was a big crowd of the persons and they were gossiping so I asked the driver to stop the auto I came down and went inside the crowd. I saw that a girl was lying down on the road with blood everywhere her belongings were spread everywhere in the road and in her hand I saw that she was holding a photograph and a letter when I saw left I saw there was a cycle which was same as Taniskha has so I wanted to know who is that girl. So I moved towards the body people deny but I didn't heart and went towards her as I was doubtful.
And when I reached and turned the body I saw that girl was Taniskha only. I was utterly shocked and can't imagine also that was Taniskha only. Then I saw the photograph and the letter which was  on her hand the photograph was of her parents and in the letter she has written that " dear mamma papa I love you the most but still you didn't care of me. I am very shocked you don't had a time for me to call and asked how I am? You all are behaving me and you all don't had a time to talk with me even a single second. I didn't like this at all. Okay me understanding you all are busy so when I. called you why you don't talk me properly. I am very disappointed and I feel ashamed to be your child". After this letter I utterly started crying and shouting who has did this?? Then a boy told that this girl was coming on cycle and she was crying and at the mean time a truck was coming and crashed with her and she died. I was utterly crying and shouted that their parents “would make a SINGLE CALL to her and can talk with Taniskha and made her believe that they were with Taniskha but they didn't. Just a single call they can't do what a busy life they are leaving god knows...
