In her cabin, Malini fumed. Gradually, her anger turned inward. She had ventured too far beyond the person she knew herself to be. It was dawn and the end of the shift by the time she saw the letter of resignation on her table.
Urban Shots: Crossroads presents sharply etched portraits of daily life in contemporary Indian cities. These stories range from the lyrical to the devastating and never once flinch at the ugliness which pervades urban Indias social tapestry. The heart-warming Song of the Summer Bird is an ode to childhood, Gautam Gargoyle is a searing look at a mans quest to fit in at work and Crossroads succinctly captures a mans divided affection between his wife and a seductress. Bold, layered and startlingly real, these stories could well be about our own lives. Edited by bestselling author Ahmed Faiyaz, this anthology includes stories by both established writers and by new talent. Never before has the urban world been explored in such minutiae as in Urban Shots: Crossroads.
