AN EXCERPT from Author's Introduction

“In the final analysis, what matters most is not the so-called inputs but the world-view of a writer, derived from the totality of his experience. My own happens to be a world that is fascinating, peopled by characters given to flashes of illumination in situation of conflict that lead to nowhere.

Climaxes that do not clinch the issue, but are meant to be satisfying nonetheless, opening out to horizons that might be reached some day. It is this unholy perception that has helped me to the crucial twists and turns, the alchemies that have yielded the ‘gold’ of my stories”.
-Kishori Charan Das in ‘An Introduction’.
