presented below are some excerpts from my second book ‘Swati’s Marriage And Other
Tales Of India’ published by Modern History Press, USA-
'The silent movement of the moon, in different shades of white,
almost every other day between the grey-black clouds, along with the various
intermingled sounds of tiny creeps from frogs, a few birds, and strange insects
I have never seen, keep me company when I stay up till late to ponder over
something or solve crossword puzzles.' - "Birthday"
'Life can definitely be not very lovely when you lie on an empty
bed, all alone, between crumpled sheets, burning like a cigarette. The heat
gets hold of your thoughts and you cease to think, cease to breathe, and lie
like a sea shell that the ruthless waves suddenly kick out of its habitat
before they disappear back into the ocean where they belong, without even
giving the poor lone thing another chance or a second look.' - "The Return Gift"
