Navarasa by Lotus (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.125

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.

Absolute page turner!!

Absolute Page turner!gripping tales from the beginning to the end. simply loved the story where a mosquito gangs up against humans! Totally new experience in reading a collection of short stories...as they all are interlinked with awesome twists.
For the first time I felt a masked vigilante story was pretty realistic. I just couldn't stop myself from reading the last six stories back to back, they are mind blowing! Two stories into the book, i didn't feel like reading short stories at all...
also the flipkart delivery super quick.

well written and Imaginative

I picked up this book for journey and couldn't put it down until I finished (usually not the case with me). I am not a huge fan of short story but this was different. Rajeev has cleverly interlinked the 9 short stories. You have to constantly pay attention to remember all of the characters and stories to understand what is happening. Once you have read this you will know what I am talking about.
This was definitely a new experience I had as a reader.
This book is what Danny Boyle's Sunshine is to movies, not the best movie ever not even in my top 10, but a movie you definitely can??????t mi...

This book is what Danny Boyle's Sunshine is to movies, not the best movie ever not even in my top 10, but a movie you definitely can??????t miss. Same holds good for Rajeev' Navarasa by Lotus
Give it a try you won??????t be disappointed.

An Awesome-read!

I was a bit hesitant to actually pick this book as the genre on Flipkart said "short stories" BUT...I think they need to create a new genre to fit this book into an appropriate genre!!

The styles of narrations used in it is mind blowing and an awesome experience to read. Non-linear, Linear, Third Person POV, First Person narration...and more!

Completely bowled over by the last story, with the way things turn around and the way I was made to connect the dots! Pretty good!

Completely bowled over by the last story, with the way things turn around and the way I was made to connect the dots! Pretty good!

The only minor minus I felt about the book (my limitation) is that the reader has to be extra alert while reading, in order to catch those subliminal messages. Anyway, it might be my inability to grasp things so not a major minus.

Overall it was an amazing read. It doesn't get boring at any place. I wonder if the author is from a movie-land background going by the way he has written such entertaining stories..

"New Hope", "My Office".. mosquitoes,dogs,cows on revolution.. against human clan..!! Totally a good read.. as said by the author himself..its a real roller coaster ride... Looking forward for such surprise pack from the author in his attempts to come.. :)

Good Reading

I 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 ??????Mutiny??????, I was very impressed by the way characters evolved and I just could not keep the book down and had to finish it completely.

I felt Mutiny is the best of this series and really enjoyed reading it. If fact I ended up sympathizing with mosquitoes. It really highlights the imagination of the writer and the way he has been able to recreate it as a story is laudable.

Looking forward to read more books by this writer.
