Wrote this one for the Deccan Herald contest. After reading the winning entry, I realised I had no chance of even getting shortlisted, looking as they were for another Arundhati Roy and co., The other winning entry was better, definitely. You can find my entry here. Also, one realises that they were looking for really short stories. My only encounter with this genre was The Interpreter of Maladies, and apparently this was not the metric DH used.
