About the book :

This book is a collection of Short Stories and Poems.

The fictional world of The Short Stories takes the readers on a roller coaster ride of love, hope, despair and resilience.

The Very Short Stories are a poignant reflection on nature and life.

The travel stories are real-life accounts of trips to remote locations. The readers can savour the freshness of a homemade meal, an encounter with a pride of lions or a sojourn on the river Ganges under a full Moon.

The Soul Poetry is a self-expression of the author depicting heartbreak, passion, romance and observations on nature and life.

The original paintings and photos in the book enhance its visual appeal. 

A few excerpts:

“You must write my story so that the men are afraid of women and know that there is a limit to the amount of emotional and physical abuse a woman can take.”-Pushed To The Brink

She felt bereft. -Very Short Stories

A pair of young Asiatic White lions is sauntering towards us, headed towards the waterhole. We can hardly breathe. They come quite close, walking past our jeep just an arm away. They are young, magnificent

creatures. -Of Asiatic Lions & White Salt Plains

Centuries have gone by

in my search for personal freedom.

I rise again and again

like the proverbial phoenix

from the ashes of my subjugation.

-The Phoenix
