Author : Saugata Chakraborty

Rating : 5/5

This masterpiece by Saugata Chakraborty contains 12 exhilarating tales of ordinary people and the choices they make. This book kept me awake and gave me lot of fodder to ponder over.

My favourite two stories are –

They go to sleep – The starting makes you wonder, Was he guilty or innocent? A young window disappears and three years later, someone claims to know her whereabouts.

What’s in a name – A poet meets a girl while travelling from Secunderabad to howrah, they share a captivating conversation but forget to ask each other’s name.

All these stories can be made into full fledged novels.The stories are raw and strike a chord – Be it, excellent narration or the engaging and detailed storyline. The editing is crisp and, last but not the least, the cover page is beautiful.

I would definitely recommend this book. This is by far, one of the best books that I have read this year.
