I am not in that flock (Telugu short story) by Harikumar

 



BOOK REVIEW OF TELUGU SHORT STORY.

This is a short story written in telugu language. A debut attempt by Mr. Harikumar, a writer from Vizag. The protagonist is a young girl who doesn't want to confine herself to conventioanl societial norms like marriage, job, money, and family. She wants to escape from the stressful human society and wants to live in an utopian world of absolute freedom. The author highlights the biases and prejudices about girl child in our society. He talks about how most women spend their entire lives caring about their families, while not giving a thought about what they really want in their life. 

The writing needs a touch of refinement as the narration creates some confusion in the initial pages of the story and the reader keeps wondering as to which character is speaking. The story ends with the protagonist leaving evrything behind to embrak on an utopian journey of absolute freedom. In a sense, it is the story of every person who wants to escape from the stressful life created by human society. The story seems incomplete as the writer does not give a clue about where the protagonist is actually going.
