The battering of the door echoed the raging agony in me as I watched the closed door which had just shut in my life. I wanted to divert myself from the hard feelings and so closed my eyes to open my world of favourite memories. After all, this was all I ever did to myself whenever I had been deeply upset – a practice that developed into a prolific habit since the days when I wanted to fly.
I was a little baby when I first saw a colourful thing wandering around the bushes. Out of wild curiosity, I asked Mom what that thing was. ‘Butterfly, my dear!’, she told me, ‘Flies from flower to flower and collects sweet honey’.
From an inquisitive child, I grew up amused by rain. I asked Mom again, ‘Who’s pouring all that water over us for so long?’

I silently recalled my memories, the beautiful world, pure air, muddy road, flowers, butterflies, Wow! I wished the world should CHANGE as it was twenty years ago, i.e., …….
And I shamelessly smiled because everyone wishes for CHANGE but no one in this world are actually acting to achieve it, instead resuming their mechanical life for their food. I am not an exception and so I started to mall to meet my sweetheart. “Will Someone act to CHANGE the World for Good?”

The journey started with ‘WHAT IF’, went on a mission called Love by means of ‘TIME TRAVEL’ in search of ‘HIDDEN’ friendship and fulfilling ‘WISH’ of a girl, realizing that ‘GOODBYE’ is not a full stop to life and awaited for his ‘RETURN’ in her womb. Expressing Love for ‘MY COUNTRY – MY LOVE – MY PROMISE’, he proved himself to the world and ‘CELEBRATIONS’ started as he enjoyed his First Diwali with a Mysterious Ghost as a part of his family as ‘THE MYSTERY’ and finally looking for the ‘CHANGE
