Different path

© Written by Tarang Sinha






She tapped her skillful steps on the floor, swaying the frills in style, and envisaged looks of admiration and encouragement. She finished her dance and expected a big round of applause but met with oblivious audience, dirty looks and an aura suffused with smoke and stench of alcohol. Oh, fate led her to a different path.
