Hey big sister, this year I gifted Punim something she wanted since a long time. That is a goldfish! Once while we talked about pets, I remember she mentioned how beautiful she thought fishes are. She went on describing their minuscule features with the most excited expression I had ever seen and that was it. I decided back then that I’ll give her a fish. As expected she loved it! My semester exams are over and I’ve been enjoying life ever since the day! Dad sent me a brand new Mac Air Book just today! It’s been a challenge for me to keep it aside and to write you a letter! XD I miss you, di. See ya soon. 31 May 2019 Dear Scarlett, My third year is over, OH MY GOSH! I cannot believe it. It’s been 3 years that I’ve been living in the same room with the...

Complete parts: Author’s Note (Password: sister) I II III IV V VI VII VIII IX 1 June 2018 Dear Scarlett, My anxiousness is growing day by day. I’m awaiting the results too badly. Oh when will I be freed of this tension now? This morning I completed my 8th novel of the week, and it’s just Friday today. At least I’m a little less tensed compared to the first year. The happiness was great, though! I had got 8.3. Mum dad were so happy. I have no idea about this year, in spite of studying hard I’m unsure how my result will turn out. I need to release some tension, I’m going to smoke pot tonight. Naveen and Azure are in the same jam as me and they agreed too. Have a great time, di! Don’t worry much about me I’ll be fine. And shush! Punim or Snehlata doesn’t know about this. See ya soon. 9 June 2018 Dear Scarlett, My eyes are dried out, nose is jammed and I can barely make out what I’m writing....

Complete parts: Author’s Note (Password: sister) I II III IV V VI VII VIII IX 11 January 2017 Dear Scarlett, Punim hangs out with us! Hey di, we’re sort of a group now. Azure, Naveen, Punim, her friend Snehlata and myself. Since we all stay in hostel, it makes sense to hang out together. Punim is such a sweetheart! I find myself liking her more and more every day. She’s so slender yet so strong. She has a freaky black belt! Yesterday after dinner, she joined me on my night walk. We went to the cross section where the highways meet, and oh, I just couldn’t stop talking. We’ve so much in common, too! Even her hometown is under the threat of war. The vintage Indo-Pak war for including Kashmir in their reign. *sighs* When will these high powers learn that war means destruction of both the sides participating in it? Or do they simply deny the truth? The working of the world is such complicated! I wish there was a cheat code to understand...

I'm pretty sure I'll at least get a 7.9 or 8! Now let's cut the crap and get to business. evil laugh the fresher’s party is happening and on the best day it could happen! It's happening on the New Years' Eve. Well to be honest it is the idea of the students living in hostel even during the holidays, and it's limited to hostel students. But everyone is invited. evil laugh interrupted by coughing this is so confusing when I try to explain. Now, I'm gonna tell you a secret. Today, in the office of our warden I saw the cutest girl in the whole world. If I'm right (by any miracle) then she's joining our hostel. If I see her in our hostel again I'm going to die! I just stood  in the middle of the hallway staring at...

Complete parts: Author’s Note (Password: sister) I II III IV V VI VII VIII IX 25 October 2016 Dear Scarlett, Guess where I’m taking you to? Oh, come on! You suck at guessing. Right now we’re in a plane to Cairo, Egypt since we have a long vacation for the Diwali festival. Hoorah! That’s the good news, the better news is that mom has started running her own clinic and dad’s business is back up, too, and due to that now I’m sitting in the business class. Double-Hoorah! It is 9:06 p.m. and the flight takes roughly 6 hours but it must be 5:30 p.m. in Cairo at the moment which means that I will meet mom dad an hour or two before my birthday! The girl sitting beside me is cute, don’t you think so? I’ll talk to her soon but for that I’ll have to say "Buh Bye" to you di. Hope our journey goes great! And just in case you get bored I’ve brought The Great Gatsby along. ;) See ya soon. 14...

I'm not really sure if they had intentionally set such easy papers but it was great for me. I called mom to tell her about the exams, they were both glad. She informed me that they left Syria last month. It was the very next day that we spoke. I became a little restless but she assured me that it was all planned and now we have our own house in the capital of Egypt, that is Cairo! I am overwhelmed. I’m still telling every friend of mine this news ever since the phonecall. But that wasn’t all about the phone call, mom even asked if I pray. I didn’t answer it but I know she knows the answer. I never liked to believe in God and now that the two of them don’t ask me to pray, I’m free to do as I please. Don’t get me wrong,...

Complete parts: Author’s Note (Password: sister) I II III IV V VI VII VIII IX 29 August, 2016 Dear sister, Hello didi! I missed you a lot, did you miss me too? I thought of a name for you. I'll name you Scarlett. The name Scarlett since recently I read the cult classic- Gone with the Wind. The name seems bold to me, exactly how I feel about you. By the way, did you know this book GWTW showcases a war, slavery and other such human grievances? It reminded me about the Syrian Civil War. I could completely relate with the feelings of the characters in the book, having no idea of when something will go wrong or if tomorrow would be safe to enjoy playing football with Ayman and the other buddies back home. But the case here is so much opposite, indeed mum dad were right. I like studying here and staying carefree from any other tensions. Last night, the three of us managed to sneak out after curfew hours. It was raining,...

Before you start your journey with Awan, I would like if all of you read my note about it. Author's Note. The password is "sister" (Ignore the quotation marks) 17th August 2016 Dear sister, Hello shaqiqa! How've you been? It's been 18 years since we talked, that's sad I know but I'll surely talk to you more often from now on. :) To start with our introductions, I'll go first: I now live in India, isn't that awesome? I came here just a few days ago. As you know our country has an active civil war which is just getting worse and thus our parents decided that I should stay away from all of it. Amongst all the places that we could afford, India was better than the rest. No complaints though, I'm happy over here. Last 9 days have been great! (Until today, of course) My hostel room over here is wonderful, I share it with 2 guys- Naveen and Azure. Naveen (aka the buffoon)...
