Ripples - Short Stories by Indian Women Writers
Upon suggestion by my blogger and Facebook friend Mrs. Tikulli Dogra, I bought myself a copy of Ripples - Short Stories by Indian Woman Writers. Thanks to Mr. Prashant Karhade for the strong yet beautiful foreword in the book. It arises interest even before one starts reading the book.
The book is a collection of 48 short stories by 26 very talented women writers. Every story delightfully narrates various forms of human emotion. While reading, every time you reach the end of the story, you'll either of the two expression - you'll be amused and say "beautiful", or rather you might be shocked and say "what the hell !!". Every story unveils a new dimension of the human emotion. Personally, I was touched by each content. Though every story stand far apart from each other, they are complete in themselves and are able to bring out the best. Every story has been so beautifully crafted that you could almost picture them being played in front of your eyes. Though I am not a very keen reader of fiction, but this book does deserves special place in my bookshelf, pretty sure that I would read it time and again and it would amuse me like it did for this first time.
And last but not least, I will say this book is definitely worth reading. Do get yourself a copy of Ripples - Short Stories by Indian Woman Writers, today.
