Dear Diary,

This new year eve brought a remorseful day for me as I lost my most favourite accessory on that day. I participated in a new year celebration party with friends on the ground near my home. I can vividly remember that after reaching the ground, while we started dancing, till then it was in my hand. But there were so many fun arrangements. While the crowd was busy to enjoy the whole function, I had to cross a long waiting line to reach the exit gate. Now, it seems to me that while walking through the crowd, my watch had fallen on the ground.

While I discovered my empty hand after returning home, I became blank. Because my grandfather gave me this watch as a special gift while I got 80% marks in the higher secondary exam. The watch always reminded me of the affection of my grandfather and his pride for my success. After noticing my empty wrist, as soon as possible I called my friends who were at the ground till then and requested them to search my watch. But no one did not get any clue.

Dear Diary,

While I was crying to leave my home for going to hostel at 10 years old, my grandfather gave me a precious wristwatch and told me never forget the lesson of punctuality. I always used this watch as one and only accessory in my school life for being ready on any special occasions.

It connected me with the lovely memory of my dear one, during staying at a hostel, away from home. But, we came on an excursion to Gangtok yesterday, with our teachers and classmates. While we were visiting Buddhist Pagoda, I was busy taking photos. At that time, somehow my wristwatch fell down from my hand. After I came out from Buddhist temple, I did not find my watch. Losing my special gift from my grandfather, I forgot the joy of excursion. I was so sad, I could not relate myself with the excitement of the excursion any more.
