Plot Spoiler :
This is a collection of 15 perfectly crafted short stories as said before and betraying each of them would truly be a sin. I would just recount a few of my personal favourites from the collection which I urge all readers to have a taste of. But before I do that, I would like to say that each story has a life of its own, each piece has a different history to it and missing any one of them would be a loss. Some stories also try to bring about social awareness about different prevalent customs that aren’t exactly logical. This anthology is an attempt to bring into light some of those issues too.
Yet, my favourites are as follows:
- Zaffran by Abhishek
- When Avarice Strikes by Mangala
- The Way We See by Shikha Kaul
- A Pious Endearment by Kinshuk Gupta
- A Spicy Kerala Honeymoon by Durgesh Shastri
- The Accursed Land by Siddharth Jain
- Eroding Shackles by Kumar Vikrant
- At Journey’s End by Soumyadeep Koley
I did find a few typographical errors in the text but other than that, it is a masterpiece of a collection.
This book can be found on Amazon.
