TITLE (EDIT)
The Gatekeeper Of The Heaven
DESCRIPTION
Theme : Hypothetically, the concept of God,heaven etc. are all created by and preserved in the belief of man. Again, the treatment of the same in the mind of illeterate and common man as well as in religion is not different but interpretation may be conveniently different as done by so called educated people for the purose of dividing the community into two and even to colliding between them. Two such old soulfriends hailing from two different communities were put to polarised points on the issue of selection of fictional appointment of gatekeeper of heaven. Finally, the two friends discard both the theories of two separate Gods under two different religion and competition between themselves etc. just to prove a point on their time tested friendship that actually looming large over all these fictional elements of God, heaven etc.

READER'S REVIEWS (3)
DISCLAIMER: STORYMANIA DOES NOT PROVIDE AND IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR REVIEWS. ALL REVIEWS ARE PROVIDED BY NON-ASSOCIATED VISITORS, REGARDLESS OF THE WAY THEY CALL THEMSELVES.

"This story went down hard...it was difficult for a Christian as myself to swallow it. But I did enjoy the way it was written. It held my interests even those I didn't really like the content. I'm sure there's stories I have written you wouldn;t enjoy the content. As a written piece it was well done and thought provoking...I believe worthy for publishing!" -- E. ROCCO CALDWELL.
"The fiction of two friends and commonmen with relentless struggle and religious differences in the sub continental context is brilliantly depicted. The role of better knowledged persons to confuse them is also very realistic since in past, we have had countless experiences of organized riots between two communities, when a friend was found up with arms against a friend. High tension on the borders between india and Pakistan has been too serious and long standing matter to put UN and USA in worries. so, the story is not only well written drawing nuances of ordinary lives but significant as well for international readership. I hope this should go to the top class stories section of this famous web-zine. " -- Suresh Chandra Banka, Patna, India, Bihar.
"Well written - strong focus - Typically Indian flavor with universal appeal. Subject is different. Highly appreciable. We want such unique fiction in future." -- Abhijit Lodh, Durgapur, West Bengal, India.
