She had the world at her feet. Vasana was pretty, intelligent and came from an illustrious family. She grew up amid luxury and always wore beautiful clothes.

In school, Vasana found that studying came easily to her and her parents were pleased with her good grades.

Vasana was seventeen when she took part in an inter-school debate with a boys' school where she met Rahul. Rahul was tall and handsome and debated well on the topic "Love Marriage or No Marriage is Better Than An Arranged Marriage".

Vasana's team was no match for Rahul and they won the debate. Afterwards, Rahul and Vasana chatted and she found herself unable to break away from talking to him. Rahul chatted a while and moved on.

From that day on, Vasana realised that she was attracted to Rahul who however only gave her the odd phone call. What did it matter? For the first time in her life, Vasana had fallen in love and it was unrequited. Over the months, Vasana and Rahul met on and off and each time she found herself falling more deeply in love with him. But Rahul made it clear to her that he did not return her love.

Poor Vasana. With all her advantages, she realised that there are some things in life one cannot have.

She tries her best to meet and mix with other young men, hoping to get over Rahul, but she finds that no-one else can match up to him in her eyes. Vasana's close friends are aware of the situation and try their best to cheer her up.

For the moment, Vasana has put love on the back burner and is now concentrating on passing her Accountancy exams.

Let's realise that no-one has everything and that there are many Vasanas among the apparently beautiful, rich and powerful.
