Once upon a time - Jhumpa Lahari

Last week I was talking to one of my friend Hema.
She was referring to her profound interest in novels and short stories. She gave me link for some of the short stories by Jhumpa Lahari. I took the printout of the story and read it at home...
The name of the short story is in the title :)
Its a very touching story by her... Once upon a time
The story is about a teen-age girl and her crush on Kaushik who comes to US from India. He confides some secrets with her. The narration is awesome...

I also read her book Interpreter of maladies... its a collection of short stories... each story is different in its own way and very closely resembles to our present life... it may not be exactly related to our life.. but our surroundings. Her stories leave some impressions in our hearts and make us think for a while.
