The Fragrance Of Love

They were opposites but were meant to be forever in love. Nigel and Neha met on a breezy summer evening of 1995. Neha didn't even bother to look at Nigel at that moment. Each of them was standing with their friends under the old banyan tree at the edge of the market. That day was truly memorable. A warm gust of wind rushed pass Neha tickling her hair.
