    @ Bharathi and Lucky:

    Thanks guys !

    Actually its a revealation for me that I could write short stories . I never had much fascination for short stories and had never attempted earlier. This sudden exposure to 55F seems to have triggered a latent short story ability in me 🙂

    @ Shas

    🙂 nice to see your comments ! But i feel it applies more for couple of arranged marriage , In love marriage , atleast there is love in air before marriage .. Ofcourse , love after marriage is different from love before marriage but then in arranged marriage its most of the times two strangers “finding love” post marriage .

    I really liked the way you combined the conflict and resolution part. Now that is one thing to be appreciated.

    But, still I would like to say that something was missing. I don’t know what actually.

    @ Archana:

    Ofcourse am not generalizing it. But one cannot deny a fact that most people “make” love before they “find” love in arranged marriage 😉
