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.

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
