I have previously read and reviewed Metro Diaries which was a collection of short stories about love and relationships. It was a good experience and as such I did not want the chance to read this collection pass me by. Metro Diaries – 2 is the second collection of stories from the author and this time her focus is on a much broader subject – LIFE.

There are 20 stories in this book and each titled in a way to create curiosity in the reader. In some cases it is easy to guess what the story is about from the title itself, but mostly they create an environment of curiosity as you start with it. They each draw on some important aspects of our lives and are easy to relate to. The subjects range from friendship to women’s rights to individual sexuality, from friendship to kindness to betrayal. Since Namrata draws her inspiration from real life and people around her, that actually reflects in her stories. As a result, none of the stories feel fictional; rather it draws attention to certain details in our personal lives. They make you think, feel and at times show a whole new pov to certain situations. My favourite stories from the collection are ‘The Cursed Existence’, ‘The Darkest Hour’ and ‘Rags & Riches’.

Namrata has some really interesting stories to tell and there is no doubt about it. In this collection though, there were moments where she slipped from showing to telling. But it is something she can clearly overcome with time – as her other stories prove the point home.

Overall, the book turned out to be pretty amazing, but I have a feeling that the author’s best is yet to come.

Please visit my blog, Errors And Kaushal, to read the complete review of the book.

This is the second part of the Metro Diaries series by Namrata and is a collection of 20 stories that revolve around life.

These fictional 20 stories of Metro Diaries - 2 are like an aggregation of varied human emotions that are plying on the edge of exploration.

The stories overall are engaging and strike the right chords of emotion which you might have experienced sometime or the other.

The stories may not amend your thoughts towards life, but they will definitely share a perspective with you. I recommend Metro Diaries - 2 to anyone who loves to read fiction, short stories or would like to read something that is a refreshing take on life at large.

The anthology has 20 tales taken from our daily life, of commoners that we come across in our routine days woven with such intricate emotions that you would complete reading the whole book in a night's time. There is no set theme for the stories and it has stories from all walks of life. For instance, Magpie of Memories narrates the woeful tale of a trans-gender while it leaves you smiling at the consequences of small misunderstandings with the Stain of Love.

The characters are from the extremes and would leave you wondering if they were aimed to be so. While Charlattan talking about a wife's stand on her husband's lecherous way, you have The Cursed Existence to talk about the disparity against females and honour killing.

I loved the way the way the stories are arranged that takes you through mixed emotions back and forth. I liked the tone in which all the stories were set, though there were places better editing could have helped.

“Metro Diaries 2” by is a collection of 20 stories, many of which portraying the heart-wrenching bitter truths of life. They help us to ponder over betrayal, grief, longing and also the glee and wonder in love, friendship, or any other relationship. They are realistic and strikes a chord with anyone who reads it. They show the different shades of life – not only drab and grey, but also of hope and cheer.

Here is a jist of few of the stories which I loved and my thoughts.

The book begins with the story Charlatan. It is about how an honest and compassionate woman finds out about her cheating husband and deciding to retaliate in her own terms. Other than a striking plot and complexities of human mind, I also loved the descriptions of the beautiful state of Kerala.

The author had been successful in penning down a beautiful tale of a transgender through Magpie of Memories. There was clear distinction of Cara’s emotions and feelings and it seemed like a piece of cake for the author. That indeed is worth mentioning.

Stain of Love was a fascinating read for, in the end I realized we do get worked up for the silliest of things where the very misunderstandings could be easily fixed by a simple talk.

“When you love someone you want to control everything that person does and hence, sometimes, knowingly or unknowingly you squash them like melons. While on the other hand in the case of hate, there is no need to specify the reason for walking over someone like that. Hate is a strong reason in itself!”

That’s a beautiful line from the story The Filch. Need I say more? It teaches us that the worst betrayal often comes from the person who we confide in the most.
