A Change In The Air

Years ago, Pran saved his sister Pa from drowning, and Pat gave his watch as a present to him.

Keeping both the departments and their friends in mind, Pran and Pat decide that they won’t come across each other. The boys plan to shift at the dome; however, they didn’t know that there also they were neighbors.
