He was the best Outgoing student of the year in his college. Everyone cheered for him and he felt proud. But not anymore. He came to know that his opponent had actually gave up the trophy for him. To add fuel to the fire, his opponent is alive no more and so does his pride.
I dedicate this short story to my friend Jyoti Prasad who gave up the trophy for me 5 years back and left to heaven 2 years later.
