Despite Stolen Dreams

December 11, 2017 • By

Despite Stolen Dreams is a literary fiction by Anita Krishan which is serious as well as constructive in tone. You might have been reading the novels based on terrorism in the valley of Jammu & Kashmir in the past days and you might have praised them as well. However, my personal experience with the fiction based on terrorism of any kind has not generally been well; most of the authors, in this or that way, tend to demean this or that thing and eventually, they tend to come to conclusions which are not conclusive – either the abstract from the excessive practicality is missing or the practicality of the excessive abstract is missing. However, Despite Stolen Dreams by Anita Krishan is a different kind of novel altogether. It has emotions, but it’s certainly not all-emotive. It implies rational; however, it does not offer an over the counter rationalism to the readers. READ MORE

Uske Hisse Ka Pyar – book review

December 8, 2017 • By

Uske Hisse Ka Pyar is a short story collection authored by a popular Gujarati author Ashish Dalal. Though already having a share of his name in the Hindi literature by writing for various magazines and newspapers, Ashish Dalal has made his debut with this collection in the field of formal writing. This is the very first book but you will seldom get that fee while reading Uske Hisse Ka Pyar. The book just transports you to a different world and all the short stories are so well written that it becomes difficult for the readers to read the book in patches… it might just take a person 3-4 hours or even lesser than that in finishing all the 17 short stories in one go!READ MORE
