Once upon a time, there existed an island of mirrors. There lived a girl named Arya, she was a bubbly girl, forever smiling, her face reminded of the colourful world of the mirror island. She loved flowers and would go to the market daily to buy herself colourful flowers. Every day she would go to the market, she would see a girl almost of her age, always sad and melancholy written all over the face, sitting under the great banyan tree in the market. Arya always wanted to speak to the girl but couldn't make herself talk. One day, Arya went to the market and she saw the girl crying. So, she couldn't hold back anymore and went to speak to her. She asked the girl why was she always sad and crying?
The girl was sitting there with her head in her lap. When Arya spoke to her, she lifted her head and looked around to see who was speaking to her. Then she wiped her tears and asked who are you? Arya replied, "I don't know you but I see you every time at the market and you look sad always. So, I just wanted to know why are you so sad always."
The girl replied, "we live in the land of mirrors, look around you girl everybody is so sad here, how can anybody be not sad in this Island?" Arya was astonished by her words and as she looked around all she could see were children playing happily, men and women busy in the hustle-bustle of the market and all the vendors cheerfully selling their goods under the great Banyan tree...
