T.P. Grish | 19 comments I released a short story with light humour and drama elements on Kindle, its only 99c and I hope you enjoy it. It is about a young man named Dom, a visit to a mysterious and seemingly remote island in the Maldives, and a search for meaning and uniqueness in a conforming world. Would make good holiday reading.

T.P. Grish | 19 comments Dominic is your average University student with a few friends and a part-time job, but he increasingly feels bored and unfulfilled with his mundane and workaday life. His life is stuck in a rut, and he needs an escape.

A trip to the seemingly unknown and unmapped Goljaban Island, off the Maldives, is the perfect opportunity for him to have a unique adventure, and to discover some uniqueness to his life.

Dom sets off, alone, to the tropical and enigmatic destination. However he finds that it is not so easy to escape the grasp of mediocrity and uniformity that has enveloped his world, and he must reevaluate his feelings about life, self-worth, and what makes an individual.

Can Dom escape his mundane life, or is it his perception that needs to change?

This is a fictional short story with light humour and drama elements.

http://www.amazon.com/Maldives-Malady...

'He plunged into the foliage, and was swept into a humid, wet world of towering trees, animal chirps and thick ferns. After a few steps, he turned, and could barely make out the village. He walked a few more steps. He could see nothing now except for the thick trees and long ferns and grasses that surrounded him. He was enveloped into the confined space between trees, surrounded by the jungle heat and staccato chirps. He turned in the direction of the village, but could only see thick, dense trees. Hoping his sense of direction had not been muddled, he turned back around to the direction of the alleged ocean, and kept walking.

Now the calls he heard sounded more and more strange. How far had he walked by now? The jungle, or rain forest, whatever it was, did not relent, and he kept on weaving into narrow gaps between the sturdy ferns and towering trees, pressing onwards. This continued for a seemingly oppressive amount of time, and he began to doubt his decision. To come to this place. To take a chance with his life, which was going in the right direction. Why couldn’t he be happy with the normal and mundane, he cursed, scolding his own stubbornness'.

This is a short story with humour and drama elements, available for 99c. The portrayal of the Maldives is as a whimsical, fictitious holiday destination, and is not supposed to be realistic regarding the real Maldives.

T.P. Grish | 19 comments This short story is a refreshing, lightly humorous read about a young man's search for meaning through a vacation that is not what he thinks. It is family friendly.

Please note that I use the Maldives as a whimsical, almost fictional holiday destination in this story, but the interpretation of the Maldives is not supposed to be realistic, and no offense is meant to the real country.
