Description
Preface

Our country was once an ocean of stories. In our own time the short story has been the most popular form of creative writing. It has become a kind of extension of the folk tale, with many underlayers of feeling, texture and technique adopted from the west. I have my own way of handling the intense moments of my own soul experience, in the seasons of hell we are going through. And I have offered these pieces to Jaico, because isolated writings have a habit of getting list in an author's workshop.

All the stories in this volume have appeared in various magazines. I wish to thank the Editors of the following journals: Eastern Horizon; Blitz; Deccan Herald; Ogonek; Mainstream.

The inscriptions in italics under the title of each story are acknowledges of debts of one kind or another.

The drawing on the cover is by Amina Ahmed. The book has been designed by Dolly Sahiar.

Testimonials
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
