This is the collection of Hindi short stories which was best selling book in Hindi fiction category. This is the 2nd edition of the title. These stories comprise a world revolving around the relationship between man and woman. What keeps the reader glued to the stories is the writers way of rendering the normal day-to-day incidents with unconventional metaphors and images, leaving the reader overwhelmed. The characters and situations evolving out of these incidents, however, do not turn these stories into mere escapist fantasies, but pull the reader towards themselves, painting a live picture of all the characters creating a sense of deja-vu.
The stories do not seek perfection in human lives by passing judgments of any kind, but encompass the complexity of the minutest of human emotions, weaving a melancholic but realistic face of life. The protagonists, often caught in a web of life in the strands of love, lust and emotions, keep going to-and-fro, tossing like a boat on the waves of their physical and sentimental world.
The stories run in a style which is poetic in narration, carrying the knowledge that rises after experiencing the adversities of life. This not only compels the reader to read the stories uninterrupted on his computers screen, but also hold the writer accountable for hypnotizing him with his words.
