I was very sad when I was left alone and everyone went back..How will I stay here alone?..I hadn’t identified a place to stay..neither I knew anyone..Nobody around spoke languages I was aware of..
Time fly and today I write here leaving everything behind, Chasing new goal, new challenges. That’s called life maybe..
