I have to say : This is a lot better than the first Urban Shots. I loved the variety in the stories and the perfect portrayals of people we all may know in real life. The stories are more concise,ranging from hilarious to thought provoking. This, along with Urban Shots : Crosswords has really set the bar high. Goes to show there's a lot of untapped writing talent in India.
Bought this book just to bear witness to my friend's creativity printed on paper for the first time. And I was not a least bit disappointed. Not only was Mydhili Varma's work humorous, laced with irony with an underlying theme of loneliness. Knowing as I know her personally, I am not surprised that her work represented childhood at its innocence and creativity. I found works of other authors equally potent. This is a very good buy and has my thumbs up all the time :)
