A first collection of short stories, show-casing author's sensitivity and talent as a writer.
The Coconut-Cutter, a symbolic story, where a married woman falls in love and her emotions and decisions are symbolically linked to the Coconut tree in her yard. It is truly thought-provoking. Ananda's Dream is a love story, different in its tackling of a tried and tested theme. It is the story's essential difference that makes Ananda's Dream stand out as an idyllic love story, exploring the tender nuances and varying shades of romantic love.
My Mother's letter deals with the shadow world of a woman alcoholic and a tenuous mother-daughter relationship. Unusual and heart-warming, Blind Faith talks about the deep welters of courage and strength in a human heart. The Minister's letter is about a simple porter and is majestic in its simplicity.
While these 11 stories deal with different themes there is one single factor uniting them and that is the chord of response they will evoke in the hearts of the readers. Each of us will identify with one or the other of the stories, told in a simple matter-of-fact style that dealt with in a unique and special way.
