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.

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
Reviewed for the publisher
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book as a complimentary copy in exchange for a honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
It's an enjoyable read!
The book, however, definitely needs better editing. Poor production values detract from the enjoyment of the delicious melange of stories.
