                                                        The Principal  asked him to come inside his room. Little Sonu 's cheeks were moist and his eyes red and swollen.This explained that he was crying incessantly.But the reason was difficult to fathom. He made no attempts to befriend any of his classmates and preferred to remain alone not participating in any of the school activities.

He was asked to sit on the chair opposite the Principal. He noticed a vase of red roses and big teddy bear clutching a small pink teddy. His gaze was now concentrated on the decorative piece and he looked forlorn. The Principal seizing this opportunity thought that this would break the ice. The Principal asked Sonu to pick the stuffed toy.

"Why did you pluck the red roses from the plant? It 's so painful to be separated from its parents. Couldn't they all be together?" , said Sonu.

The Principal was flummoxed .

Later the Principal learnt that Sonu's parents were separated. Little Sonu missed his father and wished the whole family stayed together under one roof. The acrimonious divorce had left a bad imprint on his tender mind and he was pluck-ed like the rose flower from his familiar surroundings to be displaced to a new unknown territory. The adults move away from each other and later move on but the child could not adapt to the new environment.
