Urban Shots (Paperback) Price: Rs.145

Edited by bestselling author, Paritosh Uttam, this is an anthology of 29 urban tales by 13 young writers. Each of these fresh, vivid and deceptively simple stories focuses on an epiphany. The stories are set with the backdrop of our urban metros with their bright lights, sky rises, glitzy malls, tenements, crowds and the chaos that comes with it. A woman tries to come to terms with loss of a lost baby; two strangers, a young man and a young woman, both with a love for Fyodor Dostoyevsky?s Crime and Punishment board the same aircraft; a woman ponders over giving a second chance to her cheating husband; a young man is in love with his apple pie loving best friend, who is set to marry through an arranged match; a chance meeting between two old lovers after 11 years; the memories of an old woman in love; an illiterate migrant from the village looking for her own kind of liberation; the longing of a married woman for another man; a child and his silent suffering mother and their financially strapped family; a couple once in love, frustrated with each other after getting married; love and relationships in the age of Twitter and fat free gelatos; the morning after for a couple in an adulterous relationship; a man running away from his own life in the city hoping to find salvation; a couple who decide to marry for reasons other than love and many more stories...

Dissapointing

Though there are few good stories, on the whole this is a disappointing book. Some stories are too short, they get over even before you realize what happened. Most of the stories give u a cringe-worthy feeling after u read it because nothing happens in it. Some stories like 'Heartbreakers' and 'Between Friends' are so ordinary that you would feel like even you can write better stories. Many of them are so cliched and also like abridged version of some bollywood movie.

But do give due credit there are some good well written stories as well. Most of the stories in the 'angst' section are nice and few others like 'Serendipity', 'Apple Pies and a Grey Sweater', 'Love-All' etc. are nice. My pick would be most of the stories in the 'angst' section.

Its a wonderful connection of stories that are very visual in description and are very real. The writers do well to paint a vivid picture of urban India with stories of love, infidelity, friendship and the chaos in our lives.

Nice Collection Of Small Stories

A canvas portraying fragments of everyday city lives from all over India, This book is a collection of 29 stories on relationships, love, friendship, angst & longing and I believe this book is worth every penny.
