I can't understand why deviation in light takes place during optical isomerism when an optically active substance is kept?

Any polarized light has two and only two parts (clockwise and counter-clockwise). The two parts are combined and the light shows a direction of polarization. When these two parts of light pass through chiral matter (Optically active compound), one goes faster and the other slower. The result is that the polarization of light is rotated and we see the deviation.
