Synopsis: 

The return journey of an old man into the innocence of the past.

On a winter night, ignoring the hardships of oldage, the seventy year-old Sethumadhavan reaches a time-old bungalow in the high ranges after a fifteen-hour drive. The bungalow is the embodiment of his boyhood and adolescence. He can envisage the good old days when he was a child at the British School where his father served as a teacher. He walks amid those nostalgic visuals in silent steps.

There is a void in his life caused by his son and family who are abroad and the passing away of his dear wife.However, what prompted Sethumadhavan to this journey was the endearing memory of Paru.He enquired about her who was his playmate and of his age. He walks along the paths through which they loitered hand in hand as ten year-olds.

Towards the end of the story Sethumadhavan come to know from Kashi,the bungalow keeper,the tragic death of Paru.Shocked and shattered he walks on and on braving the rain and lightening and reaches the deep pit where his beloved had fallen and died.

Rain continues to fall like life…like death…

When he raises his hands to the sky in soulful prayer, another time was awaiting him like flower-petals with all the charm and beauty of innocence.
