The car meanders through narrow ,dusty alleys with tiny houses and gardens on both sides when Siddhartha interjects , as though fathoming Sujata’s thoughts “you didn’t think, it was just a boring , pointless, long ride , did you?”
” I was hoping it wasn’t ,considering we have given Prof. Rana’s class, a miss” Sujata confesses.
“Wait till the next bend in the road, the brilliant plan will reveal itself and probably cheer you up too.” Siddhartha declares, enthusiastically.
” Wow! “, Sujata gasps, mesmerized by the brilliant view of the lake , the merging colors of the flora under the majestic sun and the beauty of trusting hearts.
“There are pretty shops , some restaurants close by and of course there’s this gorgeous lake with fun parasailing and boating activities, what do you suggest , we do ? Siddhartha asks.
” Food first , might be a good idea” , Sujata answers , wearing her innocent ,radiant smile – a smile that was to uplift him , propel him , motivate him , through the bends of time.
