Narrator- Karan was a teetotaler till he turned 26. As I told you, he found it hard to accept defeats. I won’t say that drinking is a sin but driving after drinking is. All Karan wanted in life was to earn money to help others. He ended up killing two people. Drunken driving ruined his life. He was sentenced to life-imprisonment.
