There was a lot of excitement in the air. The sound of crackers could be heard all around. Manu rushed out in the hopes of catching a glimpse of the beautiful sight of the sparklers, lamps and crackers. A voice reprimanded him: “Manu! What did the doctor say? The fumes are bad for you. Go inside.” Crestfallen, he watched his mother shut the door behind him. She added, “You stay here in this room till the ruckus stops.” At that very moment, Manu heard a series of taps at his window. He opened it to find Raj at the other side. He had in his hands two unlit sparkers. Manu asked him curiously, “What are you doing here?” Raj replied, “I brought these for you. Stick your hands out; I’ll light the sparklers.” Manu did ashe was told and put his hands outside the window. “Here, hold them,” Raj said. Manu had a big smile on his face thinking about his best friend’s sweet gesture. He made patterns in the air gleefully. Raj was happy to have made his friend laugh and smile again.
