This was the end of the world created in the Sera Park of California four years back by Meena and Manish. Now there is only darkness around them. All expectations dissolved and life became silent. Life is still there to feel deep pain at heart. Flashback started inside of both mind with perfect synchronization.

In one fine morning, Meena paced to the Sera Park near her home. She saw Manish walking around the park. At first, eyes met accidentally and then intentionally for few times when they were passing. Finally, they chattered. Both of them were tourist visitors as the guests of their sisters. 

Next day they met in the same park as anticipated. In some stage, Meena opened up "Actually I am interested in growing my children here. I am impressed with the right of the child here and the environment for development. "

"Why do you think so?"

"They live caring and lovely child life. When they are young, they can stand in their own way irrespective of the position of parents. They can join any college they want if they are capable. The college charges the same fee within the capacity of parents. They can make use of all the facilities they need in the beginning and repay when they earn gradually. The main thing is that everything is transparent. They do not need to waste the time of life for understanding the system."

"How old is your child now?" Manish assumed that Meena is married.

"No, no I am not married. I am just dreaming that if I am married here and have a child. Unfortunately, I do not have a green card here"

Manish added to her imagination. "You can have a child here even you do not have any status. As per the rule of US child born here will be a citizen of USA automatically. "

Another day, Manish started. "How is your plan going on about giving birth of American child?"

"I am searching a boy to marry with me. But, who will marry me here? I will be illegal next month"

Manish spontaneously replied. "You can look at me"

The response came straight and so quickly. Therefore, she got embarrassed.

"Are you serious or just joking at me?"

"Yes, I really mean so,"

Ultimately, they married informally and stayed in the USA without having supporting documents.

One weekend they got chance to visit Yosemite Valley located in four hours' drive. It was a small valley covered with tall trees and surrounded by very high hills. Hills covered with snow and water falling at several places because of melting snow. Meena located several points where their future child is likely to do some acting and Manish imagined how he would observe and take clips.

The day actually came and Meena gave birth to a baby girl safely. Meena and Manish engaged in growing of child with a high level of dedication. In meantime, Meena completed beautician training and joined a company. The child started preschool. Meena prepared baby for school and went to the office. Manish handed over to school and went to the office. Meena picked up the baby at 3:00 PM when she returned after five hours of work. Meena cooked meal and Manish maintained households. They routinely visited the park with the baby. Meena took care of baby and Manish captured an important moment in his mobile.

Their status is still illegal but the child is a citizen of US. One day they were visiting in the park with a child. Two police came across. After some formalities police said

 "Can we check your document?"

Meena said spontaneously, "We do not have any document our visa expired"

"Do you know we need to deport you as per the rule?" Police said

Meena became sad with this unexpected statement of Police.

Manish said, " How can you deport us, our child is a citizen of US and we need to take care of her"

"Yes your child is a citizen of USA, Government will take care of its citizen," Police said.

Police took three of them to the office and made formalities. Then they handed over the child to the representative of the childcare center. They took Manish and Meena to the airport and placed them on a plane going to Nepal. Flashbacks topped here.
