I studied a lot and was burning the midnight oil from last 1 year but could not make it. I love my father and he wanted to see me in the government job. I wanted to fulfill his desires but my luck was not with me. It was his dreams and he worked a lot along with me in chasing that dreams but in the end, we were unable to make it. My hard work of last one year ruined and there was no way of any hope. I did not want to face my depressed father and the only solution left with me was to commit suicide. These thoughts were disturbing me. 

Suddenly someone knocked on my door. That person came inside and I was unable to recognize him due to complete darkness in my room. Lights were switched on & I got to know, he was Pankaj, one of my friends. He came to me & asked, “What Happened?”. I told him the story and he shared his story as well.
