Perfect blend of short stories of all genre

The book is a compilation of 29 beautiful short stories, edited by bestselling author, Paritosh Uttam.

It’s the perfect cocktail - right amount of ingredients - be it comedy, drama, suspense, thriller, crime, biography, romance, fantasy. Few stories figuratively intoxicate and leave you in want of something more of it.

The book takes you on a joy ride from posh Bangalore colony to a flat in Jaipur. Amul has the innocence of a child, Maami Menace has a petty neighbour, who has solution to every problem but yet she doesn't try them on her own. Stories such as It’s All Good, The Pig In A Po

A brilliant collection

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.

Urban Shots: Mydhili's 'The Pig in the Poke'

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 :)

First to review

a big thumbs up

A great follow up to the first Urban Shots. This one has stories about numerous interesting characters - neighborhood aunties, street vendors, a retiree, old teachers, babies in urban metros etc. What's interested is the diversity in this spellbinding collection and how carefully curated the stories are. Bright Lights deserves a second read.

Pretty disappointing

Picked this up, thought it would be a good buy, since I'd heard much about Urban Shots. Pretty disappointed--not only are some of the stories no good, the editing is no good too with spelling and grammar mistakes to boot!
Not all bad, though: Really liked a few of the stories: Silk, Pig in the Poke, Amul, Maami Menace, etc. The overt plugging of the editor's book was also quite off-putting.

Good collection of different short stories

It is a roller coaster ride of emotions when i go through this book as there are different stories with different story lines edited to the perfection by Paritosh. Some stories make you feel the pain of characters, some are funny and light reads , some are emotional and we can relate to them easily, whereas some will make you think about the characters even after few days. All stories are just 4 or 5 pages and so it is very easy to read. People who are not book lovers may also enjoy this book.
