This is a stray of moments, moments of Passion, moments of ecstasy and moments of Love. The first moment when Viren saw Pallavi the moment stood still and he was captivated by her. Pallavi with the dreamy eyes, the tinkling laughter, the singing voice and a strong willed and happy attitude to life. Unable to express himself in her presence Viren found happiness in reliving in his dreams and waking hours, each moment of the time spent with her. The days passed till the moment when he realised that Pallavi loved - Siddharth, a stranger in uniform in whose arms Pallavi found solace and happiness. This was another moment which could not move for Viren. His unexpressed love locked in right in his heart, Viran saw the love of his life in the arms of the man of her choice. Between these two moments Viran's life stood still for another moment and his life changed from a carefree adolescent lad to an unhappy man.

Years passed but the memory of Pallavi did not fade. Viren lost the ability to laugh and enjoy himself. But fate had willed otherwise. There was yet another moment waiting for him. This was the moment when Pooja entered his life. Her radiance shattered the darkness in his heart and slowly the desert land of his emotions started to bloom. He learnt to laugh again. He saw the world became a beautiful place to live in once again. The lands, the skies, the winds started to sing in tune with his heart once again.
But old habits die hard and memories of an old love take time to fade giving rise to questions:

Will Viren find another moment of happiness in his life?

Is there a moment of love for Pooja?

Will Viren respond to the love of Pooja?

These are various questions and answer to only a Moment.

What is that moments?
