Relationships can develop anywhere – at school, in business, during travels and parties or even through traditions. Relationships are not destiny but something holy. When two minds think alike, it lays the foundation for a strong relationship. The love between same sexes is considered a taboo in several South Asian and Western countries.
In this book, stories are based on real incidents, with a blend of fiction, developed in different situations and surroundings. Some relationships are not accepted by the society. Caste is an important political and social issue in India, Sri Lanka and many other countries. It is the criteria in arranging marriages and entry to temples.
“As you sow so shall you reap” is the principle of Karma. This is reflected in some stories. Traditions hardly change with time. The social and traditional beliefs in life are handled in some of the stories in the book.
