5 comments on “A Short Story (Without An End)

  1. You have a beautiful writing style. Were you taught in English from early childhood? I’m just certainly very amazed that you have such mastery of a language that locals don’t even have. Very impressive and great post. Can’t wait to see how the story end…I’m sure it will be happy though.

    • Thank you for your kind words.

      I have been learning English since I was a baby. A lot of it has to do with the fact that I am a very passionate reader. I read a host of genres and while I love poetic prose, I find it difficult to write like that. I keep my writing simple.

      Contrary to proper belief, a lot of Indians speak very good English. We also have a fantastic vocabulary. That is why I find it frustrating that all TEFL jobs require a British, American, Canadian or Australian passport.

      English is compulsory all through school and college. We are taught poetry, prose and drama. We read Shakespeare, Dickens, Hemingway, Wordsworth, Keats, Yeats and the like. In fact, we read more foreign authors than we read Indian authors.

      I hope the end to the story is a happy one too. Thank you.

  3. This is such a cute story. I love your writing style and I’m confident you’d do great as a children’s book author. I hope the story ends happy, but I’m feeling it will at least end well. I have a feeling everything will pan out just fine with time and risks are being taken. Just wait and see 😉

    And please! Write more!


    • Wow! Thank you so much. What sweet comments. And I love your idea of writing a children’s book! I think my writing style is more suited to them, anyway. Funny I never thought about it. Plus, I also love unicorns and knights in shining white armour. 😉

      I hope the story does have a happy ending.
