THE LOVERS’ CURSE (100 words)

By Neel Anil Panicker
A grieving lover is no grasshopper.
It’s been two years since she died, though memories of her dwell longer, eons perhaps, as Rajesh walks past the college corridors to take the day’s first class, head bent and blind to students’ sniggers; ears desperately fighting the barrage of snide remarks, albeit muted, that are his due for loving and losing one of their very own, the brightest of them all __ the ever smiling, ever happy Priyanka Desai, Priyanka to all, Priya to her friends, but simply Piu to him__ the love of her life and the reason for her suicide.
