But deep inside she had a desire to learn guitars. At the university she made new friends, Suchi, Manik and a few more. They came to know about her aspirations and help her to get a guitar teacher. The first teacher (Ron) who himself was an amateur actually misguided her towards addiction and drugs. After that she went to several teachers who either dragged her to immature politics or molested her sexually.
As failure came she went deeper into drugs. Her best friends (Suchi and Manik) tried for one last time to make her a student of an old Jazz guitarist. But the old guitarist died on the very first day she was about to attend his class. Drowned in addiction Diya takes wrong routes to buy her increased daily doses. Suchi or Manik couldn’t control her.
