ABOUT THE BOOK:
Anecdotal accounts and human behavior have always fascinated the author from an early age. The book is a compilation of such stories, having diverse backdrops and complexity in terms of various characters.
Life, as we know it, is neither black or white. It has an array of grey shades, dwelling in between the 'right' and the 'wrong'. The dichotomy of situations and responses of common people are the essence of this compilation. The reactions are measured up in the stories. They can be considered humorous, surreal, mundane and even tragic. The stories have not followed any fixed or pre-ordained pattern. They have evolved with each experience of the author, or of various other stimuli as observed and experienced by her. The characters are known and unknown, depending on the understanding of readers. They can decide whether justice has been meted by the creator or not!
