Elements of Fiction
News report, Short Story, Article, Novel It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of wife.
However little known the feelings or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighbourhood, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding families, that he is considered as the rightful property of one or other of their daughters. 'My dear Mr. Bennet,' said his lady to him one day, 'have you heard that Netherfield Park is let at last?'
Mr. Bennet replied that he had not. 'But it is.' Returned she; for Mrs. Long has just been here, and she told me all about it.'
Mr. Bennet made no answer. 'Do not you want to know who has taken it? cried his wife impatiently. 'You want to tell me, and I have no objection to hearing it,' This was invitation enough. 'Why, my dear, you must know, Mrs. Long says that Netherfield is taken by a young man of large fortune from the north of England; that he came down on Monday in a chaise and four to see the place, and was so much delighted with it that he agreed with Mr. Morris immediately.

Everywhere, docket arrears are escalating. Judges clamour for more members, more perks and status-oriented facilities. Overall litigate expenses, court fees, lawyer's fees and incidentals are mounting. Court judgments are a gamble from deck to deck. Even minimal interlocutory proceedings go on interminably, with arcane verbiage, prolix adversarial advocacy and sluggish, leisurely hearings and disposals. In delivering the final conclusions, the system exhibits procrastination or precipitancy. Fair expectations of justice are marred by inevitable frustration of faith in judicial remedies.

I was in my twenties then, and my outlook on life was still romantic; the cynicism that was to come with the thirties had not yet set in. I preferred the solitude of the small district town to the kind of social life I might have found in the cities; and in my books and in my writing and the surrounding hills there was enough for my pleasure and occupation. I knew I could not isolate myself indefinitely; a time would come when the money I had made from my book would run out, and then I would have to return to the cities to make a living.
On summer mornings I would often sit beneath an old mango tree, with a notebook or sketch pad on my knees. The house which I had rented stood on the outskirts of the town; and a large tank, and a few poor houses, could be seen from the garden wall. A narrow public pathway passed under the low wall.
