How past and present meet despite changed circumstances and people ! There is no escaping the memories, at least. Sarah gazes dreamily at the lake as moments re-appear from the cruise ride across the lake in that breezy beautiful night with Sanil, one decade ago . “All too clichéd!”, Sarah exclaims , every time she travels down the “proposal story “lane. Perhaps, her mantra to internalize that all was wrong right from the start. The one steady irrefutably painful truth being the honesty in Sanil’s eyes when he had asked “will you..?”. Sanil and Sarah are proud parents to two lovely daughters. They are here at the beach again , since the children crave for “family “ time , every once in a while . Sarah looks at the absent-minded, estranged Sanil and wonders if he ever laments the unbridgeable distance or addressing her as his “ex”.
