Experiencing Interruptions?

The Cemetery

Carole, a charming young woman in her late twenties comes down to Calcutta to take in her new-found freedom after her husband suffers a sudden death. She refuses to find pleasure in the materialistic beauty of the city and seeks for peace and solace in the midst of the graves of the South Park Street Cemetery.

In a strange encounter amid the sleeping Englishmen of colonial India she is observed by a story seeker in some dramatic change of events. The story is a simple narrative depicting a timepiece of human behavior in solitude and distress. It is an example of my understanding of an attempted relationship that culminates with a subtle understanding of human feelings.
