    @ Vipul Grover:

    lol jus realized i crossed it by 3 words :p you are a number man ha ha !

    But the credit for me attempting this 55 format should go to you ! Infact I came to know about this 55 thing through you only 🙂 ok am editing 3 words to fit it exactly into 55 😉

    Well you have perfected it at the first try it seems. 😀

    I was not aware of the 55 fiction thing until now and hence thought that probably the story was truncated during editing by mistake 😛

    Anyway very good start, I must say!

    But if I have to write a story someday, I would not limit myself to 55 words for sure. I know it is kind of talent to tell such stories in limited words, but I did not like the concept(but then, that is just me).

    Hello Mr.R,
    i saw ur comments in Bharathi’s blog and followed here!!
    wonderful,awesome 55 fiction!
    beautiful feeling about your 55F!!
    even i’ve written 3 55F!! check them out if u like!!
    but i must mention u provided a cute feel with 55 wrds!

    Its a good concept, i liked it very mcuh, and it has conveyed the feelings, to what it is intended to.

    I felt a bit surprised after reading, because a few minutes before, i was reading a thread somewhere, where it is written that Indian writers are not so good in expressing feelings in a novel..
    But look here, we have someone who has done it in just 55 ….
    i ll also try this
