She picked up the news paper and smiled.

After 2 mins, 13 year old Munni came with a cup  in her trembling hands.

PS – All of us talk big. Every one of us says, “We want to change the World”. But what we all seem to forget is that, “You must be the change you want to see in the world”.

  5. Power-packed punch!!
    Very nice message sent across effectively in plain 55 words 😀

    Keep ’em coming girl!

  6. Great message Harini! You are right…so many of us in this world are hypocrites…we say something but act in a way that’s completely the opposite.

  7. I agree, one should actually be the change rather than be all-talk only.

  8. lovely…

    often we become preachy..

    good 55 fiction

  9. hey very nice one..and you are absolutely right…its up to us to be the change…
    loved the 55-er..
    do write more…

  10. very right…You have communicate a strong mess in few lines..well done 🙂

  11. True.The world is filled with hypocrites who pour out unending advice to any and everyone….but seldom do anything concrete or relatively closer to what they themselves preach!

  12. It came out really well. And the message was spot on. Kudos.

  13. Very true harini! But some social issues really don hav an end watever step we take!!!

  17. That was so apt! And it is applicable to so many people!

  18. The day we stop doin good for the idiotic reason that we wanna ‘reach heaven’ or wanna b self-righteous and think logically.. the world will dfntly become a nicer place..
