                             EY  is  the  shortest  story  published  in  the  world  ever  which
                             transcends the boundaries of language, and with a universal

                             language.


                             All stories have a context, characters, time and language. But
                             this story is in such a way that the reader can interpret this
                             story based on his/her consciousness. The reader decides the
                             story, the characters, the timing and the language according
                             to their personal experience and reading ambience. The story
                             gives the reader the freedom to determine the context of the
                             story and to choose the characters and context.


                             For example: If it’s a restaurant and two lovers out there, it’s a
                             love story. The essence of the story changes when the reader
                             realizes it is a communication between a mother and a small,
                             naughty  child.  The  story  even  changes  when  you  think  that

                             the conversation takes place between two unknown people in
                             street.


                             No story in the world could have asked for such intervention
                             from the reader. The tone and pronunciation of each word in
                             the short story make it unique and interesting.
