    Very creative πŸ™‚ What I did not understand was, if Tanmay has travelled back in time to 1990, then why was there an ‘infringement line’? Anyway, it was an excellent concept with really good narration!

        Thanks Pal. Well infringement line is jus an imaginary concept which demarcates the two time… Ummm…frames i suppose. N any interference may result in fatal consequences.
