The disillusionment of Raghu comes when he rushes out of the shed only to discover that nobody even noticed that he was missing in the first place.

Is that all? What about the way Desai describes the shed? Can i relate that to Raghu's disappointment?

Your original question asked about disillusionment. The broken down rotted shed could be scene as foreshadowing of the isolation Raghu will feel when he discovers that nobody even missed him.
