This is by far one of the best portraits of Indian society I've ever read. It doesn't sugarcoat nor does it overtly vilify. I wish each of these stories were a novel.
The prose is the most brilliant aspect of this book, and the reason why all the stories work so well. This is a book you read over and over again.
To savour the incisive writing and emotion that it brought to the fore.
So now this is my bedtime reading.
Mahesh has written 13 short stories set in various parts of India. And that in itself adds to the tale. The context adds to the backdrop and you are whisked from the tea estates of the Nilgiris to an acting academy in the suburbs of Mumbai.
Deftly written, these little stories are delightful. I for one, have picked up a few, to give away as gifts.
