Delivered By

?
  • Usually Delivered in 6-7 business days.
  • Delivery times may be longer than usual due to festive demand

What is the estimated delivery time?

Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.
Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:
  • The Seller offering the product
  • Product's availability with the Seller
  • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

What do the different tags like "In Stock", "Available" mean?

'In Stock'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Available'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Preorder' or 'Forthcoming'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Out of Stock'

Currently, the item is not available for sale. Use the 'Notify Me' feature to know once it is available for purchase.

'Imported'

Sometimes, items have to be sourced by Sellers from outside India. These items are mentioned as 'Imported' on the product page and can take at least 10 days or more to be delivered to you.

'Back In Stock Soon'

The item is popular and is sold out. You can however 'book' an order for the product and it will be shipped according to the timelines mentioned by the Seller.

'Temporarily Unavailable'

The product is currently out of stock and is not available for purchase. The product could to be in stock soon. Use the 'Notify Me' feature to know when it is available for purchase.

'Permanently Discontinued'

This product is no longer available because it is obsolete and/or its production has been discontinued.

'Out of Print'

This product is not available because it is no longer published and has been permanently discontinued.

Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

You have probably noticed varying estimated delivery times for Sellers of the product you are interested in. Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

Please enter your default pin code on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

Enter your pincode on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

  • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
  • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
  • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

A good read

I read this collection of short stories and was impressed by many of the stories featured. Specially those written by Paritosh Uttam. It has a variety of subjects to impress upon all its reader. A friend of mine opposite to my taste in books found it equally enjoyable.

Urban shots-a collection of short stories

Urban shots has proved to be example of a failed experiment. The stories except 2-3 are not at all entertaining. The cover is great with excellence of Westland publishers that this book could reach to a great number of readers.

Amateurish and Boorish!

This is hands down one of the most pathetic collection of short stories i have come across in quite some time now. It never looked promising to begin with but i always felt it will be a reasonably interesting affair that will help me kill my time en-route to Delhi via Shatabdi. However, i was in for… (View complete review)

Avoidable

Avoidable, the stories are amateurish, though a couple or so are engaging and competent enough.
On completion felt like questioning the authors whether they were specifically asked to write stories relating to infidelity? Or is it an exclusive/necessarily urban concept?
Someone looking for something to read on a train journey or in the car and having 100 bucks or so to spare might wish to pick it up though, in other words, timepass reading.

Don't judge a book by its cover!

Don't judge a book by its cover- this phrase perfectly suits the book"
the publisher are trying to sell the copy by its cover page(the only best part of the book),a very nice strategy as the publishers knew the content of the book is not worth selling.
The book as a whole is very disappointing,most of the stories are just average(as one of story titled in the book)


As mentioned by the other reader,stories from angst section scores some point & my personal favourite is just average.

Utter waste of money and time

Hello,
First of all, my review is only about the book contents,
I would give 5 stars to Flipkart for its delivery process where i was always informed about the status

Now coming to the Book, i don't know why this stories got printed into a book and if so, it is not worth the money
To start with, the cover story is supposed to be the highlight of the book but here the story is so general, i believe it was made as cover story just because it is written by a celebrity (sad)
As mentioned in other reviews, there are a few sparks but not enough to start a fire
I am not a…

It never looked promising to begin with but i always felt it will be a reasonably interesting affair that will help me kill my time en-route to Delhi via Shatabdi. However, i was in for a surprise because by the time i crawled to the fourth story my head had started paining and spinning as if i was suffering from severe migraine, an ailment that i never had in the first place.Barring Paritosh Uttam's commendable efforts at short story telling this moronic collection of amateurish …

Mediocre!

I was looking forward to read this book of short stories by Indian authors, but I must say the book has nothing new to it, that you might not have read before in some other version. The writing is average, stories are regular... Hardly 20% of the stories offer any level of delightful reading, others range from mediocre to pure trash!

I guess its OK for its price, but if you are a serious, non-time-pass reader, then AVOID!

Good Collection

A good collection of short stories... the quality varies as there are multiple authors. A couple of the stories are actually very intense and emotional, and some could have been developed further. Overall verdict? Worth a read.
