My short story Doublings was published in Joyland magazine’s January 2019 issue.


The first anonymous letter arrived by mail and was addressed to me. The return address was fake. It said, From: LN, Room 718, Leela Nag Women’s Residential Hall. But there was no Room 718 at Leela Nag.

Do you know what goes on under your very nose? The letter asked. Do you know how good name of Leela Nag Women’s Residential Hall is being destroyed? While administration dillydallies over unimportant issues like gate-closing time and Hindu diets, immorality of some girls knows no bounds. The immoral activities happen late at night, with full knowledge of administration. These are injurious to innocent, decent girls. We request the administration to stop unsocial activities and secure us from bad influence.
