Rohan’s family had returned back to India for good. He was born in India and raised in US east coast states. He was thrilled to see temperate zone and meet new people. It was his first visit after 10 years stay in US. His parents bought an apartment in town and arranged new home in India. They had to run to their village to meet unwell parents which was the reason to come back.

Next Morning, he saw gift and dress next to his bed addressed to him by his grandparents.
He ran towards grandparents and hugged them and wished “Santa will give you a long and healthy life”.
