Storywheel: The Best of 2011
As the year draws to a close, here is The Best of 2011 from Storywheel. This list is in order of my preference, so the first one is what I like the most (Sorry, David Letterman. This is my blog and I get to do my lists, my way!).
This is top of the list of stories for 2011 and deals with guilt. One of my personal favorites. I have a fascination for train stations and this story opens with a railway station scene.
This is a fictionalized account of true events from twenty years ago... the part about Hindi movies.
Madras Chronicles — Billa and Ranga:
Madras Chronicles — Summer of '79:
Pure fiction. I loved writing this story and coming up with a totally twisted ending.
Happy reading. Enjoy!
