Myriad strands, shaded and shadowed, gathered from the little joys and sorrows of life have gone into the weave of this volume, which opens windows into the rich and diverse variety of life with a remarkable depth and sensitivity. The stories span the historical and cultural heterogeneity of the sprawling Indian subcontinent, from the southern coastal tip of Kerala, to the complex quagmire of inland metros.

These horizontal shifts in locale are bolstered by a matching vertical insight into the vibrant cross-sections of society. Ably supported by a battery of sensuous images and powerful metaphors, the writer does not allow herself to be bogged down by a single narrative strategy generating rare vibrancy and potency in the tales. Each tale is different; each vehicle distinct. PRAISE FOR THE BOOK:

The Warp and the Weft takes Sankranti into the league of the superwoman writers of Indian literature. - The Week

The stories are beautifully written, and I think they do exactly what short stories should do. They resonate at a number of levels and leave you to wonder. - Julia Darling, Fiction Writer, Poet and Playwright, UK

The stories are accomplished and polished. They are subtle and understated yet clearly reveal their intention and underlying theme to the reader through the narrative. They are an absolutely delight to read. - Sharon Rundel, Writer and Professional Manuscript Assessor, Australia
