2. He couldn’t save ali because of his own selfishness and also lost his friend . this was his second mistake
3.The third mistake made by him was he fall in love with ishan ‘s sister vidya , which ishan didn’t forgive earliar .
My Suggestion –
Honestly, i liked the story very much and i found the story very emotional .
the starting and the end of story was very good . Some parts of the story
seems to be very real while the story was fictional . we get many good morals from the story specially from the 2ndmistake . the climax part was very good and was full of suspense. Overall, the story was very good
