A short story about love, friendship, and loss, Aarohi, tugs at your heartstrings. It's a story that packs a punch - leaves readers guessing, while also leaving a lot to the imagination.
I loved the characters and liked some of the choices they made, even though I disagreed with others. That I think is the biggest measure of a story's success - to make a reader imagine themselves in the character's shoes.
The story is evocative and, except for the punctuation (but that's only me trying to be over-critical), well-written.
Overall, an emotional and sensitively narrated story.
Some friendships are meant to happen. On a regular day of her life, Anusha meets Aarohi in the Badminton Court of her apartment complex. There is an instant connection and over some heartfelt chats and the game of Badminton, they develop a beautiful bond of friendship soon. They meet everyday but after a week, Aarohi does not turn up at the court. What happened to Aarohi? What is in store for Anusha? Will Anusha be able to unearth the secrets which are waiting to surface or will the twists and turns lead her to a dead end?
