The book begins with excellent writing. The moment I flipped the first page of the book, I knew I was reading a good book. The author is a debutant and still, it is difficult to believe that he could write so beautifully.
The book is a collection of short stories. Each story deals with different set of characters and theme. Some of them are connected with one another. The various subjects touched in these stories include adultery, revenge, unexpressed love, self-realization, kindness, poverty, hunger, painful diseases, separation, betrayal and more.
Each story touches one subject and it does it so amazingly that you wouldn't be able to resist appreciating this book. Let me warn you that the stories obviously work with dark themes and they will make you sad and gloomy at times. If that's the genre you like, this is the best book you will pick.
As it's a collection of short stories, I didn't expect that characters would be given much space. How can you make someone fall in love or extremely well known to a character in just 3-4 pages? Ask this author! He certainly knows that.
this is book is one of the most intense, beautiful and nice books I have read till date. It's different and good.
Looking forward to reading more from the author
Rukhsat The Departure is the collection of 26 heart touching stories that are connected to each other because of the characters that are used in each story. Simple language and simplicity of thoughts to explain uncommon emotions of humans, is the USP of the book. The characters look lively and it is pretty difficult to build up the whole magic with 4 or 5 pages but the author does that pretty well. Almost every story is predictable but still they do succeed to touch the reader’s soul.
One unique thing that I loved the most was the same story being told from 2 different perspective. It was like you are witnessing the same chain of events but with two narrations. beautiful writing of the author made me hear the characters and took me beyond the reality. It was totally a divine feeling.
Now the drawbacks. Most of the stories in the book leaves a long term impact over the reader but some are not so good. Those stories are not upto the mark and makes the collection, a dull one. There are few mistakes in editing as well. Another thing that took me off is the book cover. For me, it is not eye-catchy.
Overall, I would say that the author has done justice to his debut and presents a book that will stay with his readers for long. A must read for short story collection readers and to someone who loves to experiment with their reading list.

Isn’t that just how you feel when you see someone else’s life? You don’t know their past, you don’t know what caused the action or reaction by them, you don’t know which action of yours could effect someone in some way! Just like that, these little stories, step in and out of the lives of 26 people. Some are met in previous pages, some come later in the pages. Some are gone forever.
The settings and characters are quite believable. The language is surprisingly absolutely smooth. A good book on a day you are reflective!
