A boy is sitting on terrace smoking. His eyes are blood shot red. His face is blank but inside his heart? There is a huge storm. From past 8 years he is all alone. He has noone with whom he can share what's going on his mind. Noone to call his own. He just keeps on smoking and rested his head on wall and closed his eyes.

Boy's pov

Why can't I just get some peace? What did I do? Am I that bad? Why can't papa love me? Why my own family hates me? Family? Huh...I don't even own one. There is noone jisse mai apnaa keh skaa hun....I so wish I can die but this death too doesn't comes to me. I miss you dad. I miss you so much... please don't hate me.. please....sirf ek baar tou call karen naa bas ek baar.... please papa......
