Story Starter

Every individual is blessed with specific types of power, be it a rhythmic heart, oxygen or a body that keeps us alive. However, one of these powers supports a different kind of living. It is often dubbed the ‘lonely power’ and colloquially termed ‘privacy’. It is not the kind where one suggests to a parent not to rummage through their belongings, nor the kind where a random stranger is not expected to open a locker that is not theirs. It is the kind where social etiquettes demand people are not asked unnecessary questions.
