Format: Paperback
A book that actually lives up to its name. Like the mango chutney, you go through various flavours as you turn the pages of this anthology. Some are sweet like the Birthday boy,Sawai, and sweet as its name Prem ki Chashni. Others a little sour perhaps becaus e I really didnt get what the author was trying to convey, be it about a piece of garment or a game of cards. Some like Angels & Demonsreally tugged your heart made me tear up. However like a great dessert makes up for a good-bad meal, the simple story of college romance that completed the anthology left a great aftertaste...not mentioning the smile - the moral of the story brought up.

Okay, here it is: writing a book experience after a long time.

An extremely well written collection of short stories.
Now let me inspect to the bones of each story.
1. Miracle: Frankly, a nice story but not the best of the lot. Sorry.
2. The creation of love: The authoress is famous for her well written stories. This one is good, a bit mundane though. And while I have seen her sensible use of words elsewhere, here her choice of words gives a feeling of forcefully flowery fiction.

3. Wintersong: Small , nice and … confusing.

4. My grandfather’s shirt: Probably one of best of the lot. have to read it thrice to fully devour every inch of its beauty. Truly, SKIN is infectious.

5. Benched: Surrealistic? Theoretical? Abstract? What the f…! It’s uncomfortably confusing.

6. The 37th Milestone: Nice attempt for a horror. But to be true, it never gives any shiver.

7. Valentine Lost: Nice love story. But not good enough to be like no 4.

8. Tainted Red: Nice, like the story idea. I mean, really a good story with good style.

9. The birthday boy: I’d rather say it’s an unnecessarily forced attempt to present a simple/small story in a complex and tangled web of words. But if it is truly written by a 14 yrs old, I’ll be waiting for the writer’s upcoming work.

[...]

Overall, a should be read book. Can’t say must-read. But compared to tons of other anthologies, this will give a far better experience.

My rating is 4.5

Mango chutney is a collection of 27 short stories. The stories are one different from the other. Each author has set a bench mark of his own. Unlike other short story collections, I am unable to pick my favourite since all are equally good. Harsh Snehanshu has done a great job in compilation.
More need not be said about narration since the author are all legends themselves. The title is the highlight of the book. As the name suggests, the stories are a mix of spicy, tangy, salty, sweet, al the flavours in one. Just like a Mango chutney.
There are very few instances when stories we read haunts us but here each and every story haunts us and we end up having a mix of emotions. Some of the stories could have ended well but I'm not pin pointing them since it did not obliterate the quality.
I recommend the book to all readers who want to have a book worthy of its price

With authors like Harsh Snehanshu and Ramya Maddali, I see a beautiful blend of the Indian spices with the western panache and increasing reassurance that future generations including ours need not ask for English authors to enjoy English literature.
It's an enjoyable read!

Amazing collection. It's an easy read and it goes to show that there is story writing essence in the young generation. I believe there is future of Indian writing seeing the way the young writers have penned their plots. I salute Harsh for identifying each of them and making an attractive fabric of their writings.

Beautiful book. Short 27 stories are well framed. Some stories are thought provoking, while ome could have been better. But the book lies on a positive side of my review. Loved it.

An interesting pot pourri of styles and flavours. I have not read all of them yet, but of those I've read, these stand out: Sakshi Nanda's 'On the Other Side' for its beautiful depiction of one of the many tragedies of Partition, the sheer irony and exquisite detailing of Alka Gurha's 'Someone with Character', the sweetness and pathos of 'Prem ki Chashni' by Sudhanshu Shekhar Pathak, the humour and simplicity of Riti Kaunteya's 'The Postman', and the many painful hypocrisies shown in Purba Ray's 'Angels and Demons'.
The book, however, definitely needs better editing. Poor production values detract from the enjoyment of the delicious melange of stories.

A lovely compilation of short stories, with the wondrous width that an anthology brings of styles, themes, genres. The two stories of the many that stand apart for me are Hamsanadam by Pavithra Srinivasan and The Postman by Riti Kaunteya, both use the short story format fabulously. Also,The Perfectly Poached Egg by Ramya Maddalli is a study in how something as mundane as poaching an egg can be made so metaphorical. Kaunteya's story The Postman is simple and quick paced, a story that everyone can identify with. Definitely worth a read.
