58th shot of short: Fat and thin by Anton Chekhov
I read this story at the suggestion of Shona.
It is the tale of two childhood friends, who meet after several years. One of them finds that the other has attained a very high post and social standing. The story provides a nice insight into the way the society usually works, till date.
59th shot of short:The Snow Storm by Alexander Pushkin
The snowstorm is the story of a rich young girl and a poorer guy, who are in love and decide to elope. However, fate has other plans for them. Both of them face a severe snowstorm on the way to the church where they are to be wedded. And, their life changes. It is a love story, but a tragic one, and it left me feeling a little sad.
