The implementation of the variation of parameters method (VPM) has been demonstrated for the flow of a Casson fluid through squeezed parallel plates. Governing partial differential equation has been reduced, with the help of similarity transform, to relatively simpler ordinary differential equation. The consequent nonlinear equation is complicated enough to have an exact solution. We have solved that with the help of VPM. The results are displayed with the help of graphs and are decorated with suitable physical explanation.
