The Gift- A short story


Nandini seems to have it all – a loving husband, a beautiful home and a fulfilling job. But a child is missing from their lives. One day, her friend tells her about a development – one that will make her life complete. Soon, Nandini and Gaurav receive their gift. But life works in surprising ways…

Touches upon a very relevant subject of human trafficking. It’s a truth that is not easy to accept. Both the emotions and the issue the story touches upon are very much prevalent in India.

Narration is good.  The Characters are beautifully portrayed in the Short story.

I feel the story is incomplete as it must have also focused on Nandini’s reaction as it ends with Gaurav’s actions.
