  1. Aaah! Beautiful.
    Evocative and nostalgic, and sure enough kept me guessing till the last minute.
    Obviously merited a re-read once I hit the end.
    I like the pictures too, quite fitting.

    PS Now I’m hooked so please don’t be missing any more days. 😛

    1. @Febinmathew: I really must thank you for your consistent feedback. Truly, a storyteller is nothing without the audience. Art is a conversation between the artist and viewer, after all.

      1. Naw you don’t gotta thank me for nothing. Tis my pleasure.
        Couldn’t have put it better myself. Art is dialogue, not monologue, and most people ignore that.

      2. Also apologies for the hiatus. Been a bit caught up with work and such like. But yay, I’m glad I came back.

        Also, apologies for rather silly error, I actually just never realized that you had replied to my comments till just about now. Sigh. Rectified.

        Cheers.

        1. @febinmathew: 🙂 Easier to track the conversation, no? And no worries, no apologies. I’m deeply grateful for your time and the feedback you give me on the stories.

      3. Far easier. But I don’t get notifications for these, maybe I’ve just not turned them on.
        The time is nothing. I’m glad I could help.
        Think of it as vicariousness on my part.

        1. @febinmathew: Check settings perhaps? Also, I think you need to check the option that says subcribe to comments when you’re commenting. I seem to get notifications for the further replies in a conversation thread I’ve participated in, on WordPress.

  2. This was a fair story, I rather liked it. I understood the metaphor half way through, and went back to read the rest. Once, when I was 17, I wrote a love story to a stretched metaphor, so this triggered that memory, and your story got away with being nostalgic for me, adding to the already encumbering nostalgia. So kudos Ramya, you carried the metaphor longer than I could. Short, came in, did what it had to do, touched a chord and went out. Also mark that you can play with emotion.
