Not the same as my vision

This is with reference to the story “Not the same as my vision” by Fatima Khurrum (YW, January 13). The writer skilfully built suspense and excitement, especially the playful banter between siblings added a touch of realism to the story. The mix of traditional and unusual games added a delightful twist to the celebration that took place on the cruise.

Overall, the story gave the message that life’s surprises may not follow the script, but unplanned moments often create the most unforgettable memories.
