The Mad Tibetan: Stories From Then And Now has been written by Deepti Naval, one of India's finest actresses. This collection of stories shows that Deepti is not only a talented writer but also a good painter. Several paintings drawn by the author have also been inserted between the pages of this story book. Every story is a vivid description of a facet of life; the story could be that of a prostitute in the by lanes of Kamathipura in Mumbai, or the Piano Tuner, but each has a distinct flavour to it. The stories speak of gloom in one instant and a glimmer of hope in the next. The author does not hesitate to cite incidents that she has witnessed in her life.
