The Fight is a story about two boys written by Ruskin Bond. One boy is a Rajput, Ranji while the other is a Punjabi, Suraj. Ranji is new to town, and one day he finds a pool in the middle of the forest. This surprises him because he has never seen such translucent water. Both of them attack each other violently and throw counter-challenges at each other. At the end of the fight, both become good friends and realise that the best solution is not to fight with each other, rather fight together for a better cause.
