farzana being the most beautiful one... i could feel the needles pierce through my bosom and spin the ball of pain inside of me... i fall out of words to describe the emotion i experienced when i was a witness to her act of pleasure to induce in herself the same feeling as she had for the first, the second, the third and as long as her tender body could reap the pleasure out of that pain.
manu and siraj... the confrontation at the entrance of heaven reminded me of the book " conversations with god by Ronald walsche"... the mere act of indulgence for the sake of pleasure without the realisation of the other is so disgraceful... this is on story that stayed with me... and then the conjunctive existence of siraj and his choice of earning himself a meal a day was skilfully encrypted. the first night of siraj was also canvassed in depth and every color could be felt in its texture. these stories had an essence of ismat chugtai's " lihaaf" and khushwant singh's the "beggar maid".
hemakshi, the loss, the empty womb, the process of vacating the room of the dead... and the intercepts drawn from the various raagas was melancholic yet tormenting.
XYZ... all three are so visual in their storytelling; in complete capacity of being choreographed as 3 parallel running stories for proscenium theatre. yasmin bibi being one of my favourites, with an intention to explore all kinds of relationships husband-wife, a married woman and her lover, an adolescent and the first experience of a man, the inexplicable love of a mother, the loss of a child at gun-point... and the seven minutes prior to the final call when you see your whole life and the smell of green apples.....
this book i would call an experience through the journey of life,lives that run parallel, anal and linear to mine & yours .
I can highly recommend this book to anyone who likes short short stories. You will not be disappointed. It's a perfect travel companion.
