A sense of belonging is what everyone craves for. It emanates from the capacity to empathize with others, often manifesting in strong family relationships and deep-rooted friendships. The course of life is dictated by the ebb and flow of these emotions. Most of the stories depict this ebb and flow. Once this outer crust is broken, beneath lies a bottomless ocean of loneliness where one has to navigate alone. Thomas Eldo, a man of many moods (at times arrogant, at times whimsical), thought he was never going to be a captive of this web of emotions. But once the mantle was shattered, he became helpless. He had to spend the rest of his life searching for friendly ports to dock. Nowhere could he berth permanently. He was a tiring Ulysses without a pining Penelope.
