The quaint restaurant was a paean to Steven Spielberg. Not only was the rubber killer whale grinning from the ceiling, most inappropriately named “Jaws”, the menu itself was a homage to the ingenuity and genius of one of the greatest movie directors to have graced our time.

He was at a crucial crossroad in the journey of life.  She had suddenly turned indifferent. He felt his life diminish.

I like how the story starts large then shrinks down to intimacy. Well done Venky.

Poor Venky. I like how you contrast the vivid description of the restaurant to the bleak unhappiness of Venky.

Not even good food can heal a broken heart.
