He is 5.6 feet long, a little bit dark and his curly hair makes him cute and his soft voice can steal the heart of anyone. After clearing 12th science for a better career option, he decided to study in Bangalore. He doesn't know whether he has taken the right decision or not? He usually doesn't travel on trains but due to weather issues, he traveled through train. Raghav was irritated by noise of train. He put cotton on his ears and started reading his book "alchemist". Suddenly a girl came to the compartment and asked him to share a seat. Raghav felt a little bit uncomfortable but later he agreed. That girl has a heavy suitcase so she can't lift it up. Raghav looked at her and he is confused about whether he should talk to her or not. After a couple of moments, he cleared his throat and asked.

Raghav asked, "Can I help you?"

That girl replied, "If you don't mind, sure!"

Raghav helped her. Both smiled at each other then they continued their work.

That girl's name is Ishita who is from Bangalore and she is a fashion designer. For some office work, she came to Ahmedabad. She knows English very well. She is very talkative.

Ishita took out the packet of chips from his bag and started eating. There are no more people in their compartment, so she started looking at the whole compartment. She looked at Raghav.

She asked Raghav, "Would you like to take chips?"

Raghav doesn't talk too much to everyone, especially strangers. He nodded negatively. Suddenly, Ishita watched the book "alchemist" in the hands of Raghav. Alchemist is her all-time favorite book and paulo coelho is her favorite author.

Ishita asked," How much do you complete?"

Raghav said, “I just started reading this book it’s amazing!"

Ishita said," I have completed this one and it is my favorite"

And the whole conversation has been started. Raghav started involving in the conversation and both became friends.

After reaching a platform, both smiled at each other and then went to their destined places.

Raghav went to the S.R engineering clg for his admission. After completing the procedure of admission, he went to the hostel and took a rest for a while. He has brought his food(Gujarati food) in his lunch box and the smell of the food spread all over the hostel campus. After a minute few young boys came to the room of Raghav and welcomed him. They all became friends and shared their lunch.

After a few days, he went outside to travel to the city. He went to the restaurant, but there he was new so, he does not have a brief knowledge about food because the taste of people there was different. Fortunately, Ishita came. She wore a white dress and heels in the feet. The sound of heels makes compulsion for everyone to look at her. Raghav called her. She looked at him and tried to remember if they met earlier. Her eyes sparked. She greets him and sat next to him.

Raghav: I don't know what to order? Please order something delicious, Ishita.

Ishita ordered 2 sandwiches and coffee.

Ishita: So, how's your college-going on?

Raghav: it was good and how's your work?

Ishita: It is boring stuff, I'm going to resign.

Raghav: But why do you want to resign? I think it is a good job.

Ishita: ya, it is a good job but I'm going to start my own business.

Raghav: Great idea!

Ishita: Do you like the city?

Raghav: it is an awesome city! Here's culture is

different. I'm going to explore new things here. I want to travel to this whole city. I want to explore each new thing here. I will create so many memories here.

Ishita: if you don't mind, I will bring you to every place over here.

Raghav: so grateful you are!

Ishita: we will meet on a Sunday morning here.

And the coffee was finished.

They both were left with a gentle smile.

Raghav was doing his study very well but he has a lot of time to spare and he did not have many friends. so, he must deal with boredom. He met a boy who was a friend of a friend, his name is Ved. They became friends. Ved is doing from another college and he also has free time, so he was doing a part-time job in the national bar. Raghav impressed and asked him for an internship. After a couple of days, Ved took him to the bar and gave him a job. Now Raghav went for the college in the morning and come back in the afternoon, he studies the whole afternoon and goes for a bar at night for work is a daily routine of a Raghav.

6 Months passed like this. Raghav went for a college and a job now he is satisfied. He meets new people every day in the bar, some people are good, and some are as bad as devils. He understood that this world is not as good as people told us. There are so much anxiety, depression, and poverty in the world. He knows that not every people are happy. Though he knows only some are happy. Now he can deal with the world.

One day in the bar, approximately at 11: 30 pm. he went for a restroom but suddenly he heard a voice of a lady who is shouting and asking someone for help. Raghav went nearer to that room where the lady was situated. He opened a door slightly to saw who was inside the room and that girl was Ishita. Ishita tries to push that man away but he was abusing her continuously. Raghav kicked the door and opened it. Ishita tried to hide behind him. Raghav slapped that man. The man was so dunked that he can't defend himself and slipped on the floor unconsciously. Raghav gently hugged her and gave her a handkerchief to wipe the tear. Ishita thanked him.

After a silence of 10 minutes, Raghav broke the silence.

Raghav: Are you comfortable, Ishita? Let me drop you to the home?

Ishita nodded her head and gave him permission.

Raghav and Ishita went to her home by an auto-rickshaw. Raghav dropped her and suggested her to forget that bad incident. Ishita looked at him very politely. There was silence spreader all over the road. They both were looking at each other like they were looking at some mysterious thing. They both were very close that they can feel the breath of each other. The sound of night was very romantic and suddenly Ishita ran towards her house.

Raghav shouted, " Can we please meet tomorrow at the restaurant where we met for the first time in Bangalore in the afternoon?"

Ishita replied positively. The next day, Raghav was waiting for her. This time Ishita was so late. Raghav was waiting for her without any frustration. Ishita came and she wore the same dress and the same heel. This time also she took the attention of everyone through the sound of the heel.

Ishita came sat next to him. Raghav ordered two cups of coffee. The waiter came and served the coffee. Raghav continuously smiling at her. Ishita stopped him to do that.

After a couple of minutes,

Raghav asked, " Who was that guy who was abusing you?"

Ishita: He was my boss

Raghav: Then why he was abusing you?

Ishita: Do you remember I came to Ahmedabad for a meeting?

Raghav: When you met me on the train?

Ishita: Yes, absolutely!

Raghav: Then what happened?

Ishita: I came to Ahmedabad for a meeting with a leading company in fashion and they give us the contract. So, the boss decided to give me a treat. We came to the bar for a celebration but thank for being there. I will never forget your benefaction.

Raghav: It's my duty to help everyone.

Ishita: By the way, Boss called me in the morning and apologize to me. What do you think about whether I should forgive him or not?

Raghav: I think if he is a good man and you know him then you should forgive him because to forgive someone is the most courageous thing only strong people can forgive someone. And I know, you are a very strong girl.

Ishita: Thanks for the compliment! You are right.

Both exchanged their mobile numbers.
