All is not well :(

We reached home @ 8:15 p.m on Monday after work to be greeted by the main door flung open.  We have lost stuff about approx. 4-5 lakhs including the laptop 😦  Bk @ work today, but still to overcome the shock and hoping and praying we get back something atleast.

All the time bk @ home goes in interrogation, blah blah . Thankfully, the policemen have been pretty decent and sound hopeful.

More than the money, the pics, the memories, things which were gifted by dear ones for the wedding hv all gone. No laptop @ home also means min. leisure time 😦 Nt sure if I will be able to read n comment 😦

Hv been telling myself that it does nt help brooding over it, but it was too much of a shock to enter a house which did not look anything like that 😦 And yes, one in an apartment with a watchman and with all the 3 houses around having the inmates @ home when it took place.

Whatz more irritating is the 100 qs u get from ppl around, @ work as to how it happene, hw did he break open etc..? If only we knew, y wud we let it happen 😦 Ppl r being inquisitive in the name of being supportive which does not help @ all 😦  Added to that, all the talking has got to my throat literally and I talk with gr8 difficulty now 😦 Its been challenging, but we shall overcome is what we would like to feel and believe.

Pls pray for us .. am sure u ppl will. Hope to return soon. Will reply to all the comments as soon as I regain my lost whatever. Until then, take care and have fun all of u 🙂

  1. Hey, don’t lose heart.. I am sure you would get everything back. If it helps, let me tell you that we faced the same issue some years back (I had lost my gold jewelery, watches worth 1 lac or so) and we got them all back..
    Just keep following up with the police ..

    Love and care,
    Puja

  2. Oh no. Hon, I know how you feel. We were burgled when my parents and I (I was 15)were sleeping, and we faced the same insensitive q’s from people.

    Oh God! Thatz even scarier. Sends me chills down my spine thinking abt what if we were @ home!

    What they want to find out is whether we made any mistake so that they can feel safe, otherwise they have to admit the scary truth that it can happen to anyone.

    Hmm true 😦

    Big hugs, I know that feeling of insecurity and rage. That anyone can just pick out our home, burgle it and we’re left high and dry.
    Exactly Starry … I think its more abt all these than abt the money part !

    Was wondering where you’d been. Will keep you in my thoughts. Hope you get back your stuff, can’t imagine how much emotional, forget monetary significance it had for you. More than that I hope you get back that feeling of security after feeling so violated.

    Thank u so much Starry. Am sure all the gud wishes wil help us 🙂

  13. Oh dear, really sad for your loss.
    My house in B’lore was burgled too. They took away every possible piece of stuff they could. My parents stay alone and just that night they were both out of town. It was a terrible loss and it took my mom ages to come to terms with it. She lost all her mother’s memorabilia, all her savings, jewellery, everything.
    We haven’t got anything back yet.
    But I sincerely hope that you are able to get back atleast something. Don’t lose heart dear.
    I’ll pray for you.

    Back in the US, there was a robbery at my place. All the electronic items were stolen – cameras, video cams, laptops, ipod etc etc. My neighbors had seen some black guy snooping around our house, he had entered through the bedroom window. My apt was on the 1st level. All my clothes/belongings were all over the place. More than anything else, I had felt ‘intruded’.

    Best wishes to u.

    I avoid discussing the issue with people whom I know would react in a negative way. That’s the best way to avoid the stress caused by them. I know such people would comment like, “we already knew the area is not safe”, ” you should find a place in good location”, ” you should have been more alert” and stuff which we already know. This causes more irritation doing no good

    Keep the smile in last sentence alive 🙂

    if this is a rented place, it would be nice if you can move elsewhere too – have heard the intrusion makes the family feel very unsafe/uncomfrotable. 😦 you should also be thankful that, this didnt happen when you were at home, and that you two are physically safe! stay hopeful! 🙂
