The apprisalappaled Shah Farooq and he went aghast. A great adversity befallen on him, he decided to leave the State at once.

The stroke of destiny was ready to take Farooq into hermitage; the kingly pomp and pageantry were to be ceased within no time; the 'regality' just stood at the fore-shore only to whisper "Good Bye".
