She has driven deep into the jungle and stopped over at the same point once again. This is the third time it has happened with her. She doesn’t know why she takes her father’s car keys and drives here. There are fearful animals here, definitely. It’s a lonely spot. Only one sound, that of a nearby fall, echoes in the air. Above all, there might be an abode of the most dreadful animals, men, gone astray.

Afraid of everything, most of herself, she drives back.

Nishant is her solution for everything. She asks, “ Nishant, am I getting mad?” She tells him everything.

They consulted a psychiatrist.

After an hour long counselling he said she did not need medication at all.

He said, “You need to socialize, you need to play outdoors, you need to gossip with friends. To put in a different way, you need to connect to people and to a wholesome life.”

Nishant smiled and said, “Doc, I was already telling her this but now, having listened from an expert, she’ll believe it.”

As they turned, the doctor said, “I’m not yet done. Even before you connect, you need to disconnect. You’ll be on an e-Holiday, that is, disconnected from your cell phone, internet, TV and things like that for quite some time. These things don’t let you connect in the way I want you to.”

“But how? That’s impossible. How will I …..”

“Then a recovery is not possible either. You have to.”

“I shall assure that.”, said Nishant.

It has been a week since then. Nishant is happy to spend about 2-3 hours daily with her. She swims with her friends  Akshita and Nanda daily for about an hour in the morning as well as evening. Doctor has allowed her to listen to old Hindi songs, only on FM and her iPod. Moreover she has made it a point to visit her friends and old club daily.

When I met her last SHE LOOKED VERY HAPPY.

  • To begin with, you should know that what makes this extract work is the
    hydroxycitric acid found in it. This means your main goal should be to look for a brand that provides the maximum quantity of this acid in the infusion. It
    likely means that the quantity of the acid isn’t enough and that you will probably not
    see adequate results with it if lots of other ingredients are added to the extract.
    You should look for an infusion with at least 800 mg
    of the acid.
