Graphic Short Story: My Imaginary Friend

Meera made a friend in the glass case she suffocated in for 25 years.

When her bottled up feelings of lust and love went too far ahead with insincere interactions with men, forced acceptance from her religious father, unwanted matchmaking from the society and broken dreams of being with the women she loved – Meera made a friend in the glass case she suffocated in for 25 years.

About the guest author

Ritu

Ritu looks human but she’s a panda all the way through. This panda illustrates a lot better with cinematic music playing. She illustrates about everything she adores. Especially women, cosmic stuff and moments that warm her cold, dead heart. She loves the smell of books and crisply shaved pencils and is fascinated by the lovemaking between life and design that is all around us. Good food is her mood changer, makes her all warm and fuzzy.
