Shikha and Sanjay #1

SANJAY
Ya… [Looks at her…]
Can I have some maggi??

SHIKHA
Why don’t you go and sleep instead? You’ll eat, keep up till late and be late to office tomorrow, as always!

SANJAY
[Defensively] That's not true! Today was only the second day I’ve been late to work this month…

SHIKHA
…today is the second of October!

--------------------------------------------------
(The story of a couple living The Great Indian Dream: Shikha and Sanjay are both MBAs for a year, married for a year and in love for a little longer than that. I really don't know where their life is headed. Let's see where this goes!)

  6. @Anjali: Cardiff or Calcutta, 9 of 10 Indians will have that same idea of 'the good life', what say? :)

  8. @Harsha: True! :D
    When I had drafted this bit, 2nd October was just a random date. Only later I realised that bit.

    Not correcting it now, though :P

  9. well, I guess the story should continue and come to an end eventually.. I lost among 1,2 and 3. Though the style of writing is super better than Chetan Bhagat..

    I would suggest to write down a true story about working couples.. Your style of writing will workout well..

    Take care mate

    Cheers

  10. @Sourav:
    Thanks a lot for the comment... Comparision with Chetan Bhagat itself a huge compliment.

    I get what you're saying: There isn't too much of continuity there, but the whole Shikha and Sanjay thing is meant to be read as individual episodes rather than one long story... or at least that's how I look at it right now!

    Thank you for the encouragement once again :)
