Acknowledgement from Author:
Nothing is more satisfying than the feeling that some of you read my stories and in fact send me your comments regularly.
One of my learned readers from Washington wrote last week that my stories remind him of the maestro of Hindi short stories, Prem Chand. With all humility, I must say that I feel elated.
Another reader from East Timor has sent me the following comments after I blogged my last story, ‘Different Strokes’.
“Your Malawian story brought back pleasant memories of Africa. The beauty of the country, the poverty that a large majority of them have to endure and yet the generosity of the people has been brought out most eloquently in Different Strokes. There are so many like Herbert in Africa. People who willingly take over children who lose their parents to AIDs without any complaint and treat them like their own children. I actually find Africans far more generous in this regard than Indians. I like your observation on undercooked fish and chicken!! They like their meat a little rare though not as rare as many of the angrezs!!”
Please do read the stories, feel them and send me a line.
