Very beautiful story bala. Teenage problems and how one should handle it is so well portrayed. We can always start from zero even after blunders and prove ourselves is a very nice message. All of us do mistakes but whether or not we realise, take ownership of our mistakes and correct it makes all the difference. Shwethas emotions have been so so well described. When a mother even in her wildest dreams wouldn't have imagined that her child is capable of such a mistake, it would be such a shocker specially after all the untold sacrifices. Dhanams story of sudharshan uncle about how to rebuild trust and how kavi managed to win her mothers trust back made my eyes water. Yes harmones can wreak havoc in teenage yet one should stay strong and not yield to those feelings. Sudhas friendship is such a treasure. Not everyone will get such real friends in life. To lick our wounds and raise from ashes after floundering is not very easy and requires strong determination but a much required one for the current generation. Every teenager and a teenagers parent should read this story. How much ever we trust our child it is very important to check what children do in online for a long time. The child should not feel its prying and the parent should also assure the child it is only out of love that they are doing it and not otherwise. Its a very difficult rope to walk but can't skip. Sometimes children show the mirror to our parenting. It would come as a rude shock but can't wallow in self pity but take the required steps. I want to say much more but can't gather the right words. Hats off for such a story bala. You have an impressive writing style and I couldn't put the story down and read it one go.
