The connection between literature and society is profound. Short stories, like other genres of literature, are intricately connected to life. Presently, short story writers depict realities and life events in a manner that reflects the ups and downs of life intertwined with political, social, and economic activities. There are vivid examples of deep maturity, broad understanding, political awareness and the depiction of contemporary objective realities. These stories often address issues such as the lack of constructive elements, cultural heritage, social and religious sectarianism, incompetent political leadership, non- transparent electoral systems, religious, ethnic, and emotional challenges, as well as the shortcomings of government institutions. In this article, the authors will delve into the main aspects of short stories and explore how short story writers portray these themes.
