On Life

Some times when you sit and think of life, things seems so strange. Certain things on this planet are beyond our detection. Many a times i wonder how things are created and why certain things are created. My thoughts regarding the above ended with the mirroring concept of Maya. Beauty, wealth, pride, birth, life, death and so on.... nothing is permanent on this materialistic world. It is so funny to see people fight with his fellow human being with ego, pride, jealousy, arrogance, and cruelty for the sake of competing them on this temporary world. Life itself is not permanent yet we strive and struggle much to yearn for the so called permanent positions of life. It is indeed an illusion which blinds the realities of life. Funny and pathetic isn’t it? Had the so called humans realized this we could have long tasted the power of peace and happiness.

1105: Great Expectation

1105 : Short Story

  • The plot is the sequence of events that occur in the story. The plot begins with a narrative hook; must involve a problem, or conflict, that the main character faces; builds to a climax, or point of highest interest; and then shows the main character solving the problem and learning something about life.
  • The characters are the individuals in the story. A short story may have one or a few main characters and one or a few minor characters.
  • The setting refers to the time and place in which the story occurs. Often, a short story (as opposed to a novel) has only one or a few settings.
  • The point of view is the angle from which the story is told—first person by the narrator or third person by someone outside the story.
