Challenge: The Fault in Our Stars
Another book I did not read (and have no intention of reading), another film I did not watch (and have no intention of watching). John Green is not an author I’m gaga about.
I drew inspiration for the following piece from Kal Ho Naa Ho (one of the greatest tearjerkers of all time) in which Aman (Shah Rukh Khan) didn’t tell Naina (Preity Zinta) and Rohit (Saif Ali Khan) that he was actually dying from cancer.
ALL OF ME
He was dying. The bastard was dying, and he didn’t have the gall to tell her of his serious diagnosis. Sandra wept alone in her car, the big white hospital building in front of her a blurry mess. Tyson never told her that he was in the last stage of cancer, that he had actually come back home to make peace with his loved ones and to die free of burdens. It was unfair. She had given him all of her and never once did he had the audacity to give her a piece of his dying heart.
