The Missing Connection
by Ketaki Nirkhi
Dr.Neha Dixit, an anaesthetist lives in Mumbai with her loving husband Dr.Ashutosh. Her life is almost perfect, except for two problems. First problem is the nightmares she has had since childhood, the same ones where she hears screams, where she sees blood. Everyone assumes that these nightmares have something to do with her past, but she cannot recollect any such incidence. The other problem is they are childless, despite all efforts, and she’s craving for one. And one fine day, her life takes an unexpected twist While working at the hospital, Neha sees a patient, Susan. Neha has the feeling that she has seen this woman somewhere, a sense of Déjà vu. And Susan too keeps staring at her, as if she too reciprocates the same feeling. From that day, suddenly the frequency of her nightmares increases. The hazel brown eyes of Susan start haunting her. Neha goes to the hospital to find out who Susan is only to find her absconding. And thus begins Neha’s cross country hunt to find Susan and to find out who she really is. And during this hunt, she realizes that Susan too is following her. Who is Susan? Why does she seem familiar? What is her connection to Neha’s nightmares? Why is she following her? Will hypnotic age regression, as suggested by psychiatrist Dr.Ram, help her? As Neha comes closer to finding who Susan really is, she thinks the problem of her nightmares is going to end. What she doesn’t know is that she is close to unraveling a horrific secret burried in the past
