As told to Dipannita Ghosh Biswas by Anupreeta
Moving to Delhi from my hometown was a huge thing. A new city with new people wasn’t easy to adjust to, but well, college was a lot of fun and I began to enjoy every bit of being a student in Delhi. I made new friends as well but little did I know that very soon, my views on friendship and trust were to be altered for life.
He seemed so nice
Poonam, my classmate, introduced me to Yash. Soon after, he sent me a friend request on a social networking site, which I declined. When I received another request from him a few days later, I accepted it – nothing seemed to be out of place. We started talking and these brief conversations became more frequent, both virtually and on the phone. Nothing seemed to be out of place even when I met him, not once but twice. We chatted and laughed and made wonderful memories. But a call from an unknown number one afternoon was the tip of an iceberg I was clueless about.
