  3. Congratulations Saru :-)

    A lot of stuff, (shoes for instance )form a special bond with me. I would identify them as the shoe with which I ran my first marathon, the shoe which I got on my Birthday and the shoe which has been there all these years and retains its magic even after having a stiff number of competitors. Sometimes I feel even they tell us to move on, but the heart doesnt feel like letting them go.

    1. Yeah! For me it's really difficult to part with things and that's one reason I don't have many things. I don't want to be a hoarder.

      Thanks for sharing your amazing thoughts.

  26. Hey Saru.. I loved the way you have communicated the plight of the poor shoe (poor man rather). I have always loved the way you you use simple words to evoke complex feelings. This is one trick I always manage to fall for.

    ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC.. keep writing my friend..

  37. Good one , Saru! Congratulations! :-)
    This reminded me of an old piece, "Phate joote ki kahaani" that I wrote in class 7 for the Children's magazine Gokulam. It never got pubished but I still treasure it for that was one of my very first fictional pieces.
