Story: Other Worlds to Sing In

At times I despaired but I don’t think I ever fully gave up hope that one day I will get internet connectivity from home. After a month and more calls than I would like to remember to VSNL, I did get connected today. So to celebrate my new-found freedom to post from home, I am offering you a story. It is called Other Worlds to Sing in. A short little story that is sweet. But I cannot read it without a lump in my throat. Here is the story aka Information, Please.


  1. Every celebration will bring us a new story – as beautiful as this? :)

  2. Shivani, there are more stories than there are celebrations. Besides, every celebration is a story.

  3. I do not know what part of India you’re in, but if it’s either Bombay or Delhi, there is no need to use VSNL for the Internet anyway. Many people here have DSL connections from Airtel, or proper broadband cable from Reliance/Satyam.

  4. We had this story in school in a textbook. One of the best we had.
