    A child’s smile gives me a true sense of joy. I believe that human being becomes mature through his/her experiences. I too am in the same process. We pave our road of transformation through our experiences, decisions and struggles. Each day of my life has helped me grow. Then, why shouldn’t I treasure them in my words?

    That one. She pointed at the red umbrella. The shopkeeper pulled from a pile of several others and opened it. She checked its features. It was not extraordinary and seemed a little feeble too. She looked at the sky. It was signaling heavy rain. "My bad, why did I forget to carry an umbrella?" She...
