Dear @Cheeniya sir,
Thank you for your sweet comments.
I am honoured
I nominate A Rainy Evening.... by @maya84
A description of a girl out shopping on her own, get caught in heavy rains, suffers some difficulty in getting an auto rickshaw, and then finally gets one to go home.
A clever use of the Murphy notion (if something might go wrong, it will) in the desi-mind to keep the reading audience on tenterhooks.
A fine post.
My first nomination for this month is
A Rainy Evening...
I loved the sweet narration by OP and enjoyed reading her confusion about the auto driver.
Having stayed in Bangalore for years I know how some autowallahs behave. To find a good one is really a rare case!
Thank you for your nomination of @maya84 's A Rainy Evening... and thank you too @Anusha2917 for seconding it. It was indeed a delightful read and Maya has shown us how a routine Bengaluru rain and an auto ride could be so dramatized. As @iyerviji had remarked in her feedback, I too expected a sinister turn every second. Blame it on the TV serials I sit and watch all the time. The auto driver's lighthearted persuasion for an extra Rs.50 brought a smile on my face too. After lying low for over four years, Maya has burst into the scene with a delightful snippet. For a writer of such a caliber why was a hiatus of such a long period necessary?
Mid month review
This is mid July. we have received only 8 nominations so far. Sad you know.
Only Viji has completed her quota of four nominations. The remaining four are shared equally by Amulet and Viswa.
Thyagu and Anusha have seconded one each.
There is a lump in my throat. Will it get dissolved?
