Lovely. I must admit, though I love Jhumpa Lahiri I've never read the original version of this particular story, but I have read several of her other works. (The namesake remains a favorite of mine). Despite that, I love what you've written here. I think it has the heart and soul of Jhumpa's stories. You've done her justice with this one.

Hi, 13figureskater-Draco'sgirl!

Wow! Good story! I like the description and imagery. I also like how you have included Shoba's memories of her grandmother and her grandmother's house in India and the game they would play. It transitions well into the game Shoba and Shukumar play.

So, what is Shoba's final decision? Does she leave or stay?

Wow, this was really fantastic. I love all the stories in this book and you really did justice to the characters. :) Have you read The Namesake? I'd love to see a fanfic on that too!
