a short story

Their eyes met. She looked away. Pretended she didn't notice. The connection, the gaze. It happened again, and then and there a idea took birth in her head. It was a like a voice that spoke to her, a conversation in voice-over. A short story, she thought. Why don't I write a short story with this dramatic Bombay High Court in the backdrop? Of a lawyer (the ones whose eyes met) and a girl, just a simple girl, who comes to the Court every other day fighting for justice, looking for a divorce. Why don't I make their eyes meet, then a simple hello, a conversation, a samosa in the cafe, a walk down the historic but dilapidated stairs of this Courthouse. Why don't I make them fall in love with each other, and then why don't I introduce life. You know the thing that usually fucks up these idealistic, romantic ideas that take birth in your head and are put to their grave in your head? Why don't I make him the lawyer who's fighting for her husband, without realising it? Why don't I make him suffer, why don't I make his life hell, as he chooses between his case and his love, and why don't I make him win the case? And lose the love. And why then don't I, the writer, enter the scene and make the lines blur, and go back to the first scene.
Why don't I write a short story?

Short story? Sure... even a 44,000 word book.

Once you've got your eyes in, you take a nice long relaxing stretch, and let it all come to you...

No mid-stretch breaks, of course... so the mind's gotta stay in a sorta flexi-warp (delhi fabric), naturally free of artificial add-ins.
