#Contest : All Aboard

Preview : 
When Rhea Khanna is dumped just days before her wedding, by her boyfriend of four years, the only thing she wants to do is to get out of the city to clear her head.  The opportunity presents itself immediately when her aunt, a retired school headmistress, invites her to accompany her on a Mediterranean cruise.

As Rhea struggles to cope with her grief of being dumped at the altar, she finds herself getting attracted to the seemingly unavailable Kamal Shahani—the infuriatingly attractive ex-student of her aunt and a hot shot entrepreneur.  To add to the confusion, Sonia, Kamal’s very attractive ex-girlfriend boards the ship in a bid to win him back.

Will Rhea heal her broken heart, or will she end up even more shattered than she was when she got on this cruise? Read, to find out.

    Yes, getting dumped is the worst ever feeling one can ever get. They tend to shut themselves from the world and blame themselves even more; either for the loss or even that they were so stupid that they couldn't see this coming. They tend to prefer to be alone and would stay away from taking any step in their life.

    What I would suggest is, people around them should help them to cope up with their situation. Especially, family members, close friends. Instead of saying "I told you so", "I knew this was bound to happen", talk to them with a positive approach. Do not ever talk about that failed relationship. Instead, talk and do what the person likes. Create a jovial environment, as much as possible. Whenever they tend to cry, offer them your shoulder. But do no ever advice them. Advices should be given only when a person is in a state to listen. When one is in depression, all such advices would go in vain. Instead the same advices should be practically applied to get them do some work.
