  1. You’re right when you say there are many such ‘Asha’ in society. It’s sad to say that, but it’s the truth, I guess. 🙁 I read both Nostalgia and this together.

    It’s hard to keep the reader engaged when the ending is at the beginning, but I want to know more of her story. Will be back on Friday for that.

  2. Oh my! Whathas Asha gotten herself into indeed! I wish she could be warned somehow…poor thing. I know this ends badly, but it is killing me to see this doomed relationship bit by bit 🙁

    And that, my dear Sulekkha, is a testimony to your wonderful writing. Beautiful narration! Good going

    • Rashmi, I wish I hadn’t started down this path but now I need to keep going for Asha’s sake.She deserves to get justice in the end. Thank you so much for your beautiful comment on my story writing. I will cherish it always 🙂

  3. I like the way you structured the story, Sulekha. I wonder how can someone ask his wife’s dad to loan money to pay off the debt he made! This happens in the society too often to ignore. What a plight!

    • Vinitha, there are some very twisted people in our society and it doesn’t help that so many parents still give so much importance to getting their daughters married off than supporting them to study further and make a career. The mindset needs to change. Thanks for the compliment on my writing.
