It was around the time of Diwali, the festival of lights. Listening to her daily playlist of retro 90s songs in her car, Nikita reminisced how she used to be. A little ambitious girl loitering around her house, flying paper rockets and pestering her mom.’I want to be an astronaut ‘ she said.

At last, this time of the year she experienced mixed emotions, sad because she won’t be home this Diwali but glad because she was going to achieve her goal. …
