The Temple Bells
"For as long as the villagers could remember, the temple had been there, guarding the little village at the foot of its hill. Legend had it that the temple's three little bells, which produced the sweetest sound, had special magical powers, powers that had saved the village more than a few times from various mishaps. But Dilip Singh did not believe in legends. He believed in making things happen for himself, even if it meant stealing the jewels adorning the goddess of the temple to help him get started. Could a temple that had protected the village until now, protect itself? An intriguing story about the power of collective faith and how it manifests itself in the real world, 'The Temple Bells' is another fantastic short story by the queen of the form, Nergis Dalal."
