All these 10 stories are a slice of life. We have seen, heard or experienced all of them at one point or the other. The protagonist in each story faces some challenging times or is in some desperate situation. And like in real life, sooner or later, they find a glimmer of hope and a promise of a better tomorrow. The stories leave you with that heart-warming and feel-good feeling and thus making them truly tales of sunshine. Each story examines some important aspect of the human condition leaving the reader with plenty to contemplate and relate to.
Though these are short stories, Sundari is deft in her ability to bring her characters and their circumstances to life with ease.
Written in a simple and succinct style, Tales of Sunshine make for a quick breezy read.
Sundari calls them ‘Human interest stories’ and yea, they are most definitely that! The 'Tales of Sunshine' is a collection of heart touching and heart warming stories. There are stories of common people like you and me. There are stories of everyday experiences that shake us – difficult decisions, trying times, hopeless situations – things that make you pull your hair out in despair. There are stories that show you a ray of sunshine and a glimmer of hope as the protagonists come to terms with the helplessness at hand and turn around what seems to be impossible.
When you read the book, it is possible that you might find a connection with a story here, a character there or the situation someone is in. That’s what makes the stories so endearing and beautiful – they connect with you and lift your spirits. The book is an anthology of ten stories - but they aren’t preachy, and they don’t tell you what to do. But they do tell you that there’s always a way out, they give you a ray of ‘Sunshine’.
I loved each one of them and my favorites were 'A ray of Sunshine' which shows that everything is not lost and that you have it in you to make the best of a hopeless situation, and ‘Is Grandpa Home’, which brought a lump to the throat. Sundari's stories urge you get in touch with your humane side, something that we seem to have lost somewhere along the way. They also urge you to look at problems not as an end of the world but as a means to find solutions. Sundari's writing is powerful and flawless and she scores on all grounds with her evocative writing.
So go ahead and pick up your copy of the ‘Tales of Sunshine’. Isn’t a little bit of sunshine all you need on a rainy day?
Tales of Sunshine is Sundari Venkatraman's new release. Sundari is a well-known author, famous for her romantic novels. But recently she has also been trying her hands on different genre. Tales of Sunshine is one of her experiment.
Tales of Sunshine definitely has the flavor of Love, but of different shades. Not only does each story has love as a backdrop but also gives us an advice, each story, its title has a moral which touches the reader's heart.
Tales of Sunshine explores love between two sisters, a mother and her kid, grandparents and grandchildren; so on and so forth. While reading you can feel an instant connection as most of stories depict our day-to-day incidents, which happen in every household.
For example in Exam Fever, Maya the mother is worried about her daughter Renu's exam or in Breaking Free from the Mould, grandmother Gayatri is worried that her grandson Aarush is spoiling his future and will fall behind the rat race by choosing over languages instead of opting for some competitive exams.
