It was hot Saturday yesterday. Our script writing process had slowed down. We, me and my friends, decided to sit at the Starbucks to complete the script. There we saw Pankaj Kapur and Supriya Pathak sitting. They were having cup of coffee.
Lokhandwala Durgotsav happens at the Lokhandwala Garden, which was nearby. I eagerly wanted to see Ma Durga and wanted to have bhog. I decided to walk. As I stepped in the ground, I saw around 500 people standing in queue for the bhog. I took darshan. I knew I couldn’t wait in that big queue. My stomach ached. So I went to a small food cart and had my lunch in peace. My durga had blessed with food.

The cover was simple yet mysterious. It doesn’t spill the beans. Honestly I had never heard the story of Queen Ahira so I was Keen to dive into this story. The narration of the story is nice. It gives gist of the important characters. The paced soon like a movie screenplay. It depicts various emotions like love, respect, pride, greed. In fact there is an example given for one of them. It is like a mind blowing concept. It also shows the complexity of relations daughter and father, husband and wife, brother and sister, teacher and student. The dialogues are impressive. The Battle scene was wrapped very soon, while I was looking for some more details since the story was crafted with Keen details at start. But I understand as it is short story. One part was confusing or maybe it seemed complex which happens between Maurya and his father. One of the best things I feel about this short story is, you can find a glossary that give you meaning of each character’s name. Nice work Dhruv Anand. More to come.
Broken Bangles by Vaidehi Sharma is not a book of short stories. It is about three dimensional story. Meina Jaan, Nisha and Sudha. The world of these characters seems normal until the blossoms. It is direct from heart, a story written by a woman about women. But nowhere you would feel her indulgence. The first story starts a with first person point of view which very intellectual writing as it helps the reader to feel the same thing as the narrator. The second story shifts to first person character narration so now you can feel the character and third story shifts to second person pov so that you understand the character and it is easy to finish the book.
Have you ever got a gift with a special note? Same is the book. There is a sticky note before each story. That makes the reader feel special and separates this book from others.
