Mr Ranjan Kumar Bakshi of Talent Tutorial spoke reverentially of Arjun, a teacher in his Academy. He was speaking to a new recruit Soumendro Das, a young lad with classic Bengali looks. Soumendro pictured Arjun on the basis of Mr Bakshi's words. He too deemed Arjun highly, after all he was going to learn the ropes of teaching from his experienced and seasoned colleague. A middle-aged man with smart but fading appearance walked in by pushing the door inside.


Mr Bakshi's face lit up as he saw the man. Mr Bakshi introduced this man to Soumendro who was very much in shock. He was awestruck seeing this man and was also dumbfounded. It was Arjun. Soumendro had flashes from his past college days and tried to recollect some of it. Dripped in sheer nostalgia and fury at the same time, he was completely overcome with emotions. Arjun was the College General Secretary while Soumendro was a fresher. He was a bully with political affiliations and could get away doing possibly anything. Soumendro was brutally injured and harassed by Arjun and his gang. He had to be hospitalized after a few episodes of ragging. Cut to present day, Arjun seemed sincere and gentle. He stood there presumably ashamed and guilty.


Mr. Bakshi's finally asked Soumendro if he knew Arjun previously as he was constantly staring at him scornfully. But his reply even shocked Arjun, he said he had never known or seen Arjun. Soumendro held out his hand to introduce himself. The name literally reverberated and echoed in Arjun's ears. He then walked out of the room after seeking Mr. Bakshi's permission. Arjun had clearly turned over a new leaf and Soumendro was empathetic towards that. He rewarded him a second chance through his gesture that only some get but all deserve.
