The book 'People with a Difference' contains anecdotal stories that comprises realistic situations experienced and observed by the author himself. It is an authorship of anecdotal stories about such people around us, in our villages, in our towns who are quoted and mentioned due to their uniqueness, due to their special styles, due to their things done beyond rut, different from the bitten way. It is certainly not about the personalities known nationally and internationally but it is about people who lived more than common lives and hold their position in general conversations, and these things make them special. The author has highlighted such people who have said or done something unconventionally but wonderfully. Each story narrates something special and ends with a note of humour and sometimes leading to hilarity. The book would certainly tickle your mood to enchantment and freshness.
