“Papa, to bear all the pain and even to die, I am willing.” The ultimate love is to lay one’s own life for others. The Only Begotten Son was written to make a child understand the love of God and the ultimate sacrifice He had to make to save a hopeless world. Inspiring and unpretentious, it will move the hearts of both young and old. The imagery of Nongkynrih’s writing is so daringly simplistic, but at the same time has a depth that is beautifully subtle. This is a story that is timeless and will make one think and rethink about the purpose of life. In a world with so many sufferings, this short story is like elixir to those who want to pursue the good. Hope against hope is revived and retold in childlike language.
