Tea-20: Perfect companion for your teatime (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 107

Tea-20: Perfect Companion For Your Teatime is a collection of 20 interesting short-stories.


Summary of The Book

The stories in Tea-20: Perfect Companion For Your Teatime by Vinod Kumar are unrelated in their theme, but they all have a common thread of contemporary life in India, with all its stark contrasts.


The stories are varied, humorous, and thought-provoking. They all have a little twist at the end, making them an interesting read.


The stories in this book cover different niches and introduce the readers to many characters. One of the stories provides a fictional account of the reasons behind Sachin Tendulkar’s success. Another suspenseful story covers the events that unfold during one rainy night. The life lessons that can be learned from a cup of coffee, the significance of 50 paise, a humorous look at the daily life of an IT professional, and the relationship lessons that one can learn from a dog are the other themes covered through these stories.


The simple language and clear, uncomplicated plots make the stories fun to read. Each story is just four or five pages long, so they are short and crisp reads. The simple plots manage to convey some deep insights into the human mind, relationships, and society.


About Vinod Kumar S

Vinod Kumar is a young writer who lives in Chennai. He works in the IT industry and has a passion for writing.


Tea-20: Perfect Companion For Your Teatime is his first and only book.


Vinod firmly believes that the short story is an effective medium through which one can convey simple messages and interesting facts about life that otherwise go unnoticed. A die-hard Sachin Tendulkar fan, he has managed to weave in his idol into his short stories collection. All his stories are inspired by ordinary events that occur on a regular basis in India.

Short and simple yet adds value..

I just picked up this book so i could read it in my small breaks.. like a mood change tab..and this one surely stands up to my expectations..Vinod has done justice to the title.. the stories seem to be a live telecast of the very routine aspects of our lives but with a pinch of both sugar n salt.

ABSOLUTE TRASH

It is a total waste of money and time. The themes of the stories are noble and impressive, but the delivery and the language is atrocious. Goes to prove that anybody cannot become a writer. The book is full of wrong English and immature expression. Will not recommend it to a teenager or his/ her Eng… (View complete review)

Tea 20 - The stories of the people are well presented to the people

Tea – 20 is the real companion for the teatime and the travel. The way author looked his surrounding and way of narration is amazing. This simple way of Vinod writing about the Society, family life and funny narration about the IT work style drives me to read all the stories in a short span.

Yes, this book precisely talks about those flavours of life that can rejuvenate your every moment. It is no differentiation/ integration that many of us are still waiting to get a chance to apply in our lives, but of those little and mundane things that we usually ignore.
The writing is elegant, capturing those moments in our day to day l

Real companion for my tea time

This book contains awesome 20 stories with mixture of all passions.

‘A cup of coffee’ reminded my father.
‘Great Escape’ is a wonderful laughter.
‘Bye’ made me proud of my wife.
‘Go Straight Turn right’ is a real treat for me as a fan of Sachin.
‘A beauty that turned dirty’ is a nice punch for being responsible for our society.
‘50 paisa’ literally brought tears in my eyes for that old lady.

Over all well narrated stories as if it happens in real.

Trendy morals

The composed list of stories is a true blend of humour, lifestyle and frustration of something with which you can truly portray yourself with. Wonderful narration gives you a scenic picture and brings out the sentiments and emotions in you - Write-ups like 'A Cup of Coffee' and '50-Paise' churns out the truth behind simple things. 'BYE' and 'SIGNATURE' gestures you to remind yourself of the long forgotten flavors of life - something that reminded me that I have forgotten to say THANKS, BYE, GOOD-MORNING and other simple things which can keep you bonded for long with your people...Sachin exagg

Your Cuppa tea!!

Its a very rare experience to have a collection of short stories you dont mind reading over and over again. Tea-20 is just that!

The story, Nowhere to Run had me laughing out loud while A Cup of Coffee had me in a very insightful mood. I dont think I have heard any IT guy arguing so much on his own behalf as much as Vinod has in his story.

Thank you Vinod for this book :)

A Perfect start!!!

I wonder how many of us have the habit of reading a book in our tea time in this fast moving world. But this will be a perfect companion for you, if you do so. :-)

Nothing is exaggerated or too dramatical. Most of the stories, we can relate with our day to day activities. Stories of all genres are there. Though some of them have the predictable ending, each story is unique in its own way. They are in simple language and easy to read. Each story carries a unique message, though not in a advising manner.

Overall its worth a read!!!

Tea-20 - A perfect companion for a lifetime.

Tea-20 is packed with a lot of emotions, narrating small incidents of people having different lives and attitudes. I would compare these short stories being emotionally and conceptually as valuable as a novel. Though the author narrates most of the stories on a funny note, there is a tiny but very valuable social message delivered page after page, that would make the reader pause for a while and really link the character with himself. Tea-20 is indeed a perfect companion, not only for your tea time but the for a life-time.

Engaging AND entertaining

Bought this book for my wife and she was quite impressed with it. Haven't got around reading but she was rather insistent that I post her thoughts. The book is balanced with both social messages and comic moments. Best of all, it touches the lives of various people we seldom pay attention to in our day to day lives. She was not able to put it down till it was done so I'm guessing it is time for me to read the book too.

Tea-20: A Perfect Innings

First of all, thanks to Vinod for bringing out this beautiful-yet-simple package.

It has a collection of 20 short stories, yet none would resemble the other!! Though all the stories and the characters are commonly-seen in our daily life, the way in which the narration is handled by the author has to be appreciated. He has portrayed the various subtleties of life in a mature and clever manner.

I personally recommend a "Must-Buy" for all the age-groups, especially to the younger generation. These kind of books are very much the need of the society these days, considering lots of social messa

Worth reading more than once :)

A book of simple stories with great lessons. In the current so called "modern" generation, where people are almost devoid of ethics and moral values in relationships , one of the books which comes to rescue is Tea-20. A nice read. A must read.
