The Gift. A short story by Preeti Shenoy. Soon on Juggernaut

Hi  here!

How have you been?
I have been buried in my writing for the last many days.

And I want to share something very close to my heart, with you.

*drum rolls and trumpets please*

 I am VERY excited and happy to share with you that a short story written by me is coming out on Juggernaut app soon. Most of you who have read my books and loved them, will be *very shocked* to see this side of me. It's a side I have revealed only in my short stories, which tend to be very different from my books. I truly hope you like this story, as I it's something I am proud of having written.
How do you get to read the story?
Hit 'Like' and SHARE  my facebook post.

Shall reveal details, as soon as we get 200 shares :)
Love
Preeti

We must tell you that  X,Y and Z, including Abdul Kalam spoke  at our college and they did not charge any fees .'.  This is the general tone of emails.Many  of the college festivals that invite me  have music concerts and would not hesitate to spend hug…
