THE IDEA: The story is about two simple individuals who were once classmates and hardly interacted with each other…On the last day of their class ,one confesses to have true admiring feelings for the other and then they started out their journey separately only to meet years later . Each of them shining on the peak of their career . The story simply reflects how an emotion called love can change the life and thinking of a weak person forever!
The beautiful leaf from the chinar just flew down to her feet.She was walking since the last one hour without realising how far she had travelled.
Life too had been strange, a look behind gives the glimpse of everything that she wanted to remember.
It wasn’t long since she was a young girl in her teens,like every other girl flying and bubbling with enthusiasm ,yet quiet in several matters.She was just another girl,nothing special about her that could make her desired. She was aware of that and never felt bad about it.

The girl just replied back , “Open and see it yourself, I don’t have any faintest idea about it.”Saying this she turned around and went back.
Confused , having a look at the paper that looked so attractive,she rolled it back to open.
Inside were few sentences written ,reading which she was astonished.
