‘Escape Plan’ By Anjali Jha

Be aware what you wish for. If this world was a wish granting factory and your ginnie came himself at your door, what would be your choice?
Rohan was an outgoing cheerful 13year old boy living each day as a perfect all rounder in school. He was someone who would go all out if you need his help but won’t let his guard down when it’s about rankings in school charts.
But even a perfectionist life could be imperfect if you look carefully. Everyday it’s same routine for him, home to school then home again but with delay. The perfect family isn’t that perfect. The smile, the cover up story is all that matters in this superficial world.
Amidst this the only escape plan for Rohan was his peculiar friends, who share his secrets and also his pain.
But what if one day a seemingly harmless choice is given to you? Would you choose your perfect life or let go of all the pain with a little price to be paid.
