Child labor.

                                        Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers



The summer vacations yawned lazily in aestivation. 

Tanya purchased textbooks and readied her uniform.

Laxmi too looked forward.

Both saw each other on the first day.

Laxmi 'manned' the counter, handed a burger to Tanya.

Laxmi's makeshift cafe, outside the school premises, held her family's body and soul 

together.

  2. I love how well you illustrate the contrast between the two girls and their lives without having to *tell* us who they were or what their relationship and/or situation is.

  3. I read your story a couple of times, after realising the linkage with the title. It made me sad for Laxmi, getting to see all the kids entering the school. I loved how you showed both girls, never telling how they related to one another. Well done!

  4. Kalpana, this is wonderful, the contrast between the two girls' lives is perfectly done.

  6. The apt choice of the word 'manned' the counter indicating at once the child is doing a man's job goes well with the title.Where there is a seller,there is a buyer and the disparities in their status is inevitable.
    Elegantly short.
