A superlative collection of short stories by one of the leading lights of Navya fiction in the Kannada literary scene, this translation reflects the concerns and experiences of the author - both at home and abroad.

Varied in theme and style, the stories represent Sharma's creative expression in prose spanning over a period of four decades. From sexual to communal, from introspection to self exploration, the range of the narrative is expansive. The entire gamut of human sentiments - love and hatred, desire and disappointment, pleasure and pain, reunion and separation - is portrayed with intense empathy and passion.

Ordinary people and everyday events brought to life by a poet-writer in his unique style.
