Product description


The magic of writing is when you can make the reader see a visual in his head as he reads the words. Sanil's writing has that quality. Brilliant, insightful and totally engaging. --Piyush Pandey, Executive Chairman & Creative Director, South Asia, Ogilvy & Mather

Sanil Sachar writes with a poet s lyricism and a philosopher s emotional maturity. The Dark Side of Light challenges and comforts the reader with its delightful flights, dips and surprises. --Shoba Narayan, author of Katha and Return to India

This is a book that combines prose and poetry in a fluid manner. The journey and the search for meaning is set against the backdrop of London, Goa, Istanbul and Kargil, painting rich mosaic of culture, emotions, relationships and contemplation. Sanil writes with a flow that s involving, touching and reflective, a sheer joy from a young author. --D. Shivakumar, Chairman and CEO India, PepsiCo

Product Description

The Dark Side of Light, Sanil Sachar’s second book, promises a unique literary experience for readers, with its combination of short stories, poems and plays, vignettes of romance, comedy, murder, mystery and much more.
Offering a diverse pick, Sanil seamlessly combines the rhythm of poetry, the allure of storytelling and the realism of theatre to create an enriching and vivid experience. Some pieces transport you to a different world, while others allude to everyday experiences. Set in the year 2034, ‘Members Only’ takes you inside India’s first strip club and asks existential questions about a person’s identity, through the story of a young man who oscillates between love and lust. ‘Painted Red’ is about a brother dealing with the loss of a sibling and brings alive basic human emotions like wrath and vengeance. Navigating through an array of everyday emotions, ‘Dinner with the Turners’ is a laugh riot that peeps into the life of a hopeless young wanderer trying to find his identity in a foreign land. ‘I’ll Be There One Day’ is a short and powerful story about belonging, while mystery and wavering thoughts dominate ‘The Conditioned Air’.
Racy and pulsating, The Dark Side of Light, is a celebration of the coming together of three different literary forms, with their distinct flavours intact.
