    1 thought on “Tales from Modern India

    1. Loved reading this book on short stories by the young writers of Delhi University. The short stories were all neatly written and provided class and variety. I especially liked the story "An affair with a Pseudonym a lot, and the way the story went ahead with changing pencil sketches of the narrator. Kudos. I wish Delhi University roll more such talent out.

    2. The stories are nice, and of different kind. Enjoyed.Indelible Ink : this story I didn't get. read twice, still nothing :|

    3. All the stories are nicely written and are very different from each other. I liked all of them but The Mystery was my favourite as it addresses the question which all of us have in our mind.

    4. I picked this book up because I wanted to read short stories set in contemporary India written by Indian authors. All the authors in this book are students of Delhi University as of 2014-15.The good thing about the book is that it over-delivers for the price (I paid about 10c on for the Kindle version) and has a good variety in terms of the style of writing, the story setting, and the length. Although some stories disappointed me, most were okay reads. Nothing very memorable that stays with me [...]

    5. I liked the anthology. It was an eclectic grex of stories. Some were exquisitely written stories with simple premises, while some others had unique plotlines. I liked almost all the stories. The book is a short but thoroughly compelling read.I highly recommend these stories-Stories, Life and Coffee by Ritwick Bhattarcharya,The Mystery by Pragya Mukherjee,The Image in the Mirror by Saumya Lal,Beautiful Remains by Tanvi Berwah andThe Insane Woman by Aditi Arora.
