This collection of contemporary short fictions offers a kaleidoscopic view of life in all its charms, vagaries, humour and pain. These are not autobiographical pieces but the emotions and feelings that go into the making of a story by blowing up a small situation or a chance remark are real.

The stories mirror social changes and the process of social evolution. They bear witness to the sad yet vibrant existence of women – the pain of separation sung through folk songs; the agony of a woman who questions her own decision; a woman trying to find a solution to her mid-life crisis. Some of the stories take a humorous dig at life while some others offer a serious view.
