Autobiography of a jacket: Part Two - Rishona Chopra

 In the previous part, we read about Jacket, who has gone through surgery and his friend Coat, who has gone on a journey to find true happiness.

I, Coat, am now in the Himalayas, near Mount Everest. I am feeling freezing. Luckily I have worn a few layers, but it is still freezing! I think,' where am I now? I was fine, okay with a jacket and my owners. This place is so cold! I've been through a desert, where it was very scorching, had to tear my skin and now this freezing place!' As you can see, I am very annoyed and am considering going back to my home with Jacket, and he might feel much happier then.

It takes quite a few months to reach home, but what can I do if I stop? I have nothing to do and have no protection either. But somehow, I manage to get there. 

When Jacket sees me, he is over the moon with joy. He asks me questions about my journey. After staying in front of the heater, I answered all his questions about how tiring my trip was. 

I realized that I can't find happiness in things or places but within myself when I feel at home and feel joy.
