Ridge's riverie broke by flapping sound of a bird's wings. It was a sunny Saturday. Sun was shinning more than before. Ridge looked upon the sky and smiled gently. All the earthly happiness and
sadness had become too much small to him. He could define the life in a new angle. He got freedom from soul , greed, hope and all other earthly things, he got free that freedom for which we all
struggle over life. He muttered---"What should be the Anthem of Life" while his eyes saw the same line was written on the Tombstone. And he smiled heartily strechted his arms took a fresh breath
and walk along the path between the Graveyard.
