Navarasa by Lotus is a short story collection written by an engineering graduate, Rajiv Kumar. It is the debut book of the author, who brings together a collection of stories from across different genres. As the name suggests, the book presents stories that reflect various rasas, including compassion, love, humor, heroism, disgust, fury, wonder, peace, and horror. Though all the stories are vivid and independent, they are interlinked with each other in a delicate manner. The nine stories presented in this book cross paths mainly because of interrelated characters and situations. The first story is about a movie-star who fades away because of his need to have everything under his control. The second story is about a young man who takes justice into his hands and assumes the role of a masked vigilante. The third story is about a mosquito that has a strong determination to fight against human domination. The fourth story revolves around an unmarried couple, about to go through a break-up. The fifth story reveals the tale of a woman who is enigmatic yet elusive, and who feels frightened of her own dreams. The sixth story describes a school kid who wishes to vent out his anger. The seventh story reflects the fate of the contemporary society post 2012. The eighth and ninth stories encompass concepts like addiction and redemption.
Rajiv Kumar completed his engineering from the B.M.S. College of Engineering, Bangalore. He was born and raised in Bangalore, and still resides there. He aims to become a screenwriter in the future. He has co-authored another book, titled The Long View From Delhi.

Rajiv Kumar hails from Bangalore. He is an engineering graduate of B.M.S. College of Engineering, Bangalore and is currently working in Bangalore. He maintains a list of ‘directors; and he dreams he would someday write stories and screenplays for them. He believes that creativity is beyond languages. He has been heavily influenced by almost everything —from his memory of watching cartoons on Doordarshan as a kid, school days’ gossiping, comic books, dreams, nightmares, movies...After reading many short stories, he felt that readers’ minds have been tuned to perceive short stories as a stand-alone tale, which can be read in one sitting, waiting for the twist in the end. Craving to create a niche for himself, his collection of short stories, have the essence of entertainment, taking the experience of reading a short story to a new level. The result is “Navarasa by lotus”. He is currently writing a thriller novel; it’s a story set in an alternate universe. Rajiv can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org

Good ReadingI began reading this book with some apprehensions as I am not the one to prefer short stories. But as I progressed and by the time I reached âMutinyâ, I was very impressed by the way characters evolved and I just could not keep the book down and had to finish it completely.
