Part I: Unforgettable Time

Arjun moved out from the AC cabin on the train and stood near the door. Fog formed on his aviator-framed eyeglasses due to the sudden change in temperature of the surroundings. He was smiling deeply engrossed in his thoughts that he didn’t even notice the physical transition happening right in front of his very eyes.

​The train was gushing at the rate of knots. The plastic covers that were thrown out from the trains, that passed by for decades, were trying to catch up with the train. On the journey, trees were left behind, people looked like ants and Arjun felt like he was impersonating Flash.

She retorted, “Oh! Come on... I’ve been there thrice!”

Arjun smiled again and exclaimed, “I can understand the way you were in love and, to be frank, it isn’t what you call love.”

She furiously asked, “Okay Mr, how long has it been since you’ve been in love?”
