Loved the ending. Very powerful story, it has a strong message. The insane obsession with productivity in your fictional society is a such a sobering reflection on today's world. Congratulations Deena for this amazing story! Looking forward to reading more. Perhaps even set in the same universe.

I also wouldn’t mind reading about Raman’s childhood. I think that you’ve built a world and a narrative in Maya that can be further explored.

Yes! There are at least two other stories around Raman’s childhood and training. And then a whole exploration ofMaya’s early life… her pov ! 🙏 Thank you!

Thank you for reading all the way through @CB ! Yes indeed. He's ready to go find her. Love above all else. That's what saves us all eventually...

Really glad to see you followed it through.

I do have some on substack. They are old as I haven't published due to trugger finger. I'm limited to a short time writing so I can heal.
