About the Book

This collection of stories reflects various day-to-day issues that take place around us, which we often ignore. Each of the thirteen stories in this book has a certain message. Those Widows of Shivoham, for instance, highlights the plight of forlorn widows, perennially clad in white, and their love for the festival of colors, Holi. Destiny’s Wit showcases a laborer’s struggle to keep his ailing child alive.

The stories revolve around hit-and-run accidents, floods and the emotional trauma they evoke, feral children, animals, social media addiction, ignorance in society and the betrayal of trust, all issues that we see reflected around us. The characters have been constructed such that they seem real and relatable.
