>Short Fiction "ABOUT ARIBAM" in Inertia Magazine 8

>I have a short story published in Inertia MagazineABOUT ARIBAM.

After clicking on the story title, see my name listed under ‘fiction’ on the left-hand bar and click for the text.

A bit of backgrounder: I used to work as the media coordinator for National Foundation for India, a grant-making body in India directly funded by Ford Foundation. We indeed had a media program that I took over from a wonderful senior, and ran my flagship media conference one time in Shillong, a beautiful city and capital of the northeastern state of Meghalaya in India.
I indeed met my protagonist at that conference. But this is largely fiction that showcases those moments of life that fail to provide any explanation about their rationality or exactitude of occurrence. And given that I am a neighbor of Manipur and it’s beautiful people, something spurred me to write this piece.
Do enjoy the story and tell me what you think!

    >I read the story Nabina and, if one can call it divided into three parts, liked the second part the most. I felt the end was rushed! And the slight closeness between Nalini and Anirban sudden and unexplained. I wanted more, actually. I liked Anirban's manner in the first two parts, but found his flash a little too forced in the end

    >thanks TS. That's a very important feedback. Aribam's encounter with Nalini was a rather fast one… the pain remained.
