He use to wear sandals mostly all time , he use to wear sandals to go to bank also , sometimes his wife and neighbors also asked to him, why he doesn't use shoes to wear while going to bank, but he
didn't pay attention to them ever, because he felt comfortable wearing sandals rather than shoes, so he always used to wear sandals even he went to bank also and generally his wife and daughter got
his sandals lying one over another, which was considered a ill omen, in his family, so they always used to put the sandals apart from one another , when they found them in that condition. It was
considered a ill omen sign in his family, which meant the wearer of that sandals will be compelled to go outside by evil forces. It was his general practice , so his wife and daughter were not
remained much concerned about it .



His daughter Kirti was very beautiful, that's why Sunil loved his little angel very much , so when she used to go to play with her friends outside, then Sunil remained curious about her until she
came back.



She had many friends but Rishabh was his closed friend, who was the son of Sunil's neighbour, Mr. Dixit, who was also a cashier in his Bank. Mr. Dixit was a very noble man, Sunil had never seen him
to even argue with anyone, so Sunil and Mr. Dixit's family had good relationship with each other. Rishabh mostly used to play with Kirti , as he was not much elder than Kirti, he was 9 years old.
So Rishabh and Kirti became fast friends very soon.



Both family had no problem with their friendship because both were kids, but as soon as both started growing young, Sunil and Mr.Dixit , started to oppose this friendship because both belonged to
different cast, but till now Kirti and Rishabh had started liking each other and their childhood friendship had been converted in love and now they were not ready to live without each other.



Now Rishabh was 22 years old and Kirti was 20 years old. One day ,that day also came when they were completely banned to meet each other , but till now Kirti and Rishabh had been gone to far , from
where was not possible for them to come back.



So they decided to marry after ran away from his family, they knew very well that their family had to accept them because both were their families only child.



But it did not happen , because truth is always stranger than fiction. Both families ruled out to accept them . So Rishabh took a two room set on rent in Gomit nagar , which was near both families
houses.



But Mr. Dixit and Sunil , didn't go to their home, they had started to say everyone that their children have been dead for them.



Now 3 years had been past , Rishabh got a job in Pune, so Rishabh and Kirti were going to Pune to shift there , Kirti wanted to see his father before going to Pune, as she also loved very much to
her father, she also called him, but her mother received the phone and said , almost weeping that her father will not talk to her till death. As he hurted him a lot. So Kirti disconnected the phone
and left Lucknow with heavy heart, but she always used to talk Sunil's neighbours about his father's well being and Sunil also got the information about Kirti and Rishabh by his neighbors, but he
never shared this with his wife Shraddha, because he didn't want to disclose his love for his daughter before Shraddha.



One day Shraddha got a news by her neighbor that Kirti had become a mother of a young bay boy and Kirti and Rishabh gave him the name , Shiva. She told to Sunil about it and said Kirti and Rishabh
both called them to Pune to meet their grandson, Shiva.



Then Sunil said, he didn't want to go there, as if they didn't want to remain in touch with them then there was no need to go to Pune . Shraddha said that it is not right , it was not her daughter
and son in law's fault, because they always tried to keep in touch , but he was the one who was ignoring them and not wanted to meet them, she asked why he didn't speak with them when Kirti called
him and wanted to see him , before going to Pune.



Sunil said that if he didn't speak one time to her then couldn't she call him again, wasn't his house was Kirti's house.



Shraddha knew very well that Sunil loved her very much , probably much more than Shraddha , so she asked him to forgive his daughter and son in law and asked him to go to meet his newly born grand
son.



She said that it is also good that they were not in Lucknow , they were in Pune, so no one could know that he went to meet them and by this he will be also able to see his newly born grand son.



After hearing this , Sunil thought that it was really a good idea, by going to Pune not only he could see his beloved daughter and his grandson but also his reputation in society will also not go
down. So he decided to leave for Pune by next day's morning train, because he was not able to control much more his emotions for his daughter and his grandson. Now both Shraddha and Sunil were very
happy after a long time.



Next day Shraddha packed, Kirti's and Rishabh's, all the favorite food material and gifts for her grandson and gave them to Sunil and said don't eat any food material while travelling through
train. Sunil laughed and said, you moron, am i look fool to you, who will eat the favorite food of his daughter and son in law and more over specially for his grandson and then they started
laughing again.



He picked an auto for Railway station and after reaching there , when train came then he went to his compartment and sat down on his reserved berth and started thinking about meeting with her
daughter and grandson.



Now as soon as Shraddha confirmed with Sunil via mobile that he had got his train and train has departed for Pune then she called to her daughter and told her about her father's arrival their.



As Kirti came to know that his father was coming , she became very happy and asked to Rishabh that her father is coming to her home at last. After hearing this Rishabh also became so happy, because
he knew very well that Sunil's arrival to his home was a sign of his acceptance to them.



So that's why he was very happy now, because it was a triumph of their love for them.



But meanwhile something unexpected happened , Shiva started crying after listening the sound of the television, it was showing the news of a train accident, which was coming to Pune from Lucknow,
when Kirti saw this news she cried, Rishabh and shown the news to him. Rishabh was so much shocked that he was not able to believe it, but after hearing whole news , he got confirmed that it was
the same train in which his father in law , Sunil was travelling, so both Kirti and Rishabh went to that place where the train got accident, then they started to search Sunil, there some people
were lying dead , someone's body parts were cut off and someone's flesh was scattered there, now Kirti's hurt stopped beating surprisingly when she saw her father's dead body, Sunil's eyes were
opened as they were so much keened to see her daughter.



Then she saw Sunil's sandals , which were again lying one over another , but now he had not to go anywhere, because his soul was already departed to new destination.....
