"The Story of the Lizard Who Had the Habit of Dining on His Wives" by Eduardo H. Galeano (Uruguary)
Part fable, part allegory, this story shows the dangers of predatory behavior. After consuming so many wives, the lizard meets his true love, but it is a case of "be careful what you wish for".
"Jaspal" by Kirpal Singh (Singapore)
"Jaspal" is a short story written by the famous scholarly author, Dr. Kirpal Singh. The story plot begins with the person named Jaspal sitting in a restroom, thinking about his happy-go-lucky childhood memories of India. The story is written in a very light and humorous way, yet touching the very sensitive topic of racism, classicism, and difference in thought between different generations, in Singapore.
