                 The  blazing  sun  torched  the  sand
                 granules.  Yet  neither  of  us
                 stopped  our  probe.  I  stood  with
                 the  sea  at  all  times.  Day  and
                 night.  In  pain  and  bliss.  We  are
                 together.  Nowadays  no  one  pays
                 attention  to  me.  Why  should
                 everyone  pay  attention  to  the
                 madman? I have seen people who                           pestered  me.  I  heard  her  voice  echoing
                 seasonally  love  and  hate  the  sea                    from  my  back.  "What  are  you  searching
                 and shore. True it is , while seeing                     for?"  During  the  yester  years,  no  one
                 this my heart would ache. Still the                      other  than  the  sea  asked  me  such
                 sea        sustained          without          any       queries. I was amazed. I said. : “The way

                 emotion. And.... One day ... it was                      to  make  my  dream  come  true  "  "Dream

                 a      holiday.         Holidays         are       a     come  true?"  She  looked  puzzled.  I
                 celebration,  aren't  they?  And  all                    explained.  "It's  hidden  in  some  mussel."

                 celebrations troop up to a place. A                      She  said  nothing  and  looked  around.  At

                 lone  person  to  sympathize  with                       came  and  roofed  the  sea.  As  usual,  I
