The collection of short stories in English, Life and the Grey Notes, brings home the simple truths of human nature, the essential human ingredients. The author has you reflecting, smiling, as you relate intimately to the characters and situations that people these stories. From the inescapable dilemma of a tea stall owner caught in the mesh of societal hypocrisy, to the inherent tendency to presume and judge that lurks within each one of us, the cherished place we accord to individual faith and the element of divinity, the intricately entwined threads of emotion in the Indian ethos can all be derived from this collection of experiences in the form of a book. The turning point in some stories where the protagonist emerges as a hero or confronts his own inevitable human frailties will warm many a heart, cutting across reader demographics such as age, geography and language. Suitable read right from a teenager to a young adult to an adult. Heartwarming, thought-provoking, explores human relationships and human psychology yet light and humorous, this short stories collection makes for an ideal quick read with your leisurely cuppa chai..... About the Author :- Mayank Sengar hails from a family of culturalists based in the holy city of Varanasi. He is blessed with a keen eye for detail and a fine sense of appreciation for life’s varied experiences in equal measure, glimpses of which can be found in his work. He has a talent for being able to connect easily with people from varied spheres of life, and this reflects beautifully in the way the characters in his stories are very real, very compelling, irrespective of which strata of society they belong to. Mayank currently lives in Gurgaon with his wife and two lovely kids.

Each story starts with an introduction about the subject or topic that Mayank has weaved a story from.
The story then starts after the quick introduction. There are varied stories ranging from the story of the man who fails to somehow be connected with his father and loses him in the bargain by being at Gurgaon, to how pet owners unintentionally fail to understand pets sometimes, and how it’s important to understand our calling and what we really wish to be with our lives – a story resonating with the characteristics of Bermuda Triangle.
From the inescapable dilemma of a tea stall owner caught in the mesh of societal hypocrisy, to the inherent tendency to presume and judge that lurks within each one of us, the cherished place we accord to individual faith and the element of divinity, the intricately entwined threads of emotion in the Indian ethos can all be derived from this collection of experiences in the form of a book.
These stories will take you through the minutes of living, making you doubt your conscience, ask you vivid life questions, confuse you or take you on a journey of simple living. It depends on you and only you as to how you perceive it to be.
For me, Life and The Grey Notes was a quick breezy read and allowed myself to clear my mind.
It’s a read you can come back to at any point of time when you feel you need an answer to something that has been stuck in your mind all this while.
I’d recommend this book to those that prefer to read about life tales, about experiences, about simple living, about family and connections, about love and more so about finding yourself.
I think the book was a good read. A very realistic one, telling us what we already know, but tend to forget when such situations arise. Each story had something to offer, something to take back and think upon. It forces you to introspect and look back upon your strengths and weaknesses, the areas where you need to improve upon.
I specifically liked the titles of the stories, which made it even more interesting. The book is solely not a psychological one, it offers light humor, suspense and a lot more.
I also liked the narration of the book, which made it even more relatable. This book is a easy read. You can read it anytime irrespective of what's going on in your mind because it will surely rule out your judgements.
My favorite chapter was "the god particle". It made me think about myself, my life, my career and answered a few questions which were hovering in my mind.
I would recommend this book to all those who like simplicity, who care about little joys of life, who love, who are confused. This book will surely offer you something and will be worth the time and price.
