Mutiny in the Ark is a collection of thirteen fascinating stories depicting realities of everyday life in. Indian society today Sharad Chandra generally writes of life among the financially well off whom happiness has eluded. They seek, but do not find. And the reasons show up in misplaced social norms and beliefs, frustrated personal persuasions, and sometimes in simple pressures of modern life. Receptive to candour and uprightness Sharad Chandra has also exposed, in a most interesting and witty manner, the duplicitous and hypocritical side of human behaviour. Overall the stories are believable though unrelenting.
