I had read some stories in the 5 minutes fiction of The Asian Age national newspaper which had appeared every Sunday. I thought let me give a try, so I had posted my story and after sometime I was surprised to see my story in this very section. I didn’t get any prior intimation about the publication. So, it was a pleasant surprise to me.
The story was “Please Forgive Me” and here is the story from the news paper.
This was the first story with a tragic ending that I had written in 2001, which was followed by another tragic ending story ‘The Schedule’. Before this, all my stories had happy endings. It was really painful for me to write these two stories. I had to feel it to express it. And killing my characters wasn’t that easy as I had thought before writing these two stories.
