Monster by Amritorupa Kanjial
A deep fried love story by Deepti Raut
Monster is a simple story. But with a tag line that will indeed the at your heartstrings for a long time to come. It is the most professionally written piece among all the stories and I was only disappointed to find no other publications save for the authors blog which I then proceeded to relish. I am Keen to read future publications from this author as she seems intelligent and that reflected in her writing.
I liked A deep fried love story because I too struggle with diets. And after reading that story it's all I can do to do to stop from running and eating an alur chop. Another intelligent story leaving the reader wanting more.
This book had every element to it - thrill, suspense, drama, quirkiness. While the thrill and suspense kept me hooked, the quirkiness added smile on my face.
It reminded me of my younger days when I used to read Enid Blyton's Bedtime Stories. Still have the book with me as memories and sometimes read them as well as and when possible. But this book of course has more of mature content to it.
Would love to read more of such books in the future. Short and simple stories is definitely the first step for a person who isn't a bookworm. :)
Kudos to all the writers..
There are fifteen next stories that delve in to different emotional strata.' The story', the first one in the anthology, is the tale of a boy who asks his mother about his father's death and request a bedtime stoRyan with which he tries to find clues towards the culprit. The climax is unique. Author exposes the why and who of the murder inexplicitly and hence brilliantly. 'One day in December is mystic,imaginative, and psychological phantasm.
'Monster' is my favourite. It tells the readers about a girl who sets out in search of the enigma behind the life of her deceased father, whom she comprehends as someone who is as monster like as her. The next three stories "The sinner", "Marital Chains" and "Mrs. Neeraj who lived in Neeti Bagh are a glimpse into the domestic violence, marital rape and women empowerment. While the latter two speaks about standing up for oneself, "Sinner" disappointed me pathetically. Being a woman and a mother, the climax is unacceptable for me, though the language and narration is brilliant.
"Lizard grass" and "Deep fried love story" are quirky and satiric in a subtle fashion. "The letters undefined", "Homecoming", "Missing earring" and "Cycles and cyclones" let the readers breath romance. Love that is weightless, musical yet painful. "Colours" is also a love story, the respectful love of a husband towards his wife who is recovering from the travails of childbirth. " The pupil" is the tale of love between a teacher and her little student. The effort tetcher takes in motivating her pupil who stutters is heart melting. The most unique and hence special story among the fifteen ones is "The boy who never became a man".
All in all the stories are all emotional at one level and literary in the other. We can complete the book over a day but to get rid of the hangover might take several.

After a long time, I read a short story collection where each and every story has something new to offer. The book is very well edited and divided into three sections: Spine Chilling Drama and Suspense, Quirky funny and awkward moments and Poetic love of hopeless romantics.
I loved reading the stories from the suspense section.Two of the stories that I enjoyed reading are "Story" by Abhishek Mukherjee and "One Day in December" by Deboshree Bhattacharjee Pandey.
