Freshman - 1,188 Points (17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

It happened like the oasis!


While the mother was feeding the child,
She used to tell the child, ‘you marry the Pandya King’!

While the child grew well into a teen beautiful girl,
She understood that it was imaginary and impossible!

It happened like the oasis in the backdrop
of the grove along the sea shore!
