      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      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.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      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 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 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 cluster of 7 literary short stories presenting the romantic-sexual facets of:

    Narain who lusts for Munika, Old Jaganlal who wants a favour from young Dia, Jackie who is in love with Nic. A surgeon who is changing more than a patients hairline, nose, lip and chin. Shonali and Neel who are realizing that infidelity might not be such an easy thing. A woman who walks the tight rope between tradition and sexual exploitation, and Sunil who meets the woman of his desires through an adult dating site.

    Through these stories, Rochelle Potkar explores the intensely personal unrelationship that exists alongside its conventional and socially articulate twin, the relationship.

    Beautiful book on relationships

    First look at the book will give you a feeling of it being an erotic fiction but once you get down to read the book, you will be immersed in it sensibilities and sensitivities. There are nine stories in total – where seven stories are complete while two stories are left to the imagination of the readers.

    Each story, though has lust as an integral element, has a deeper meaning. Readers can find romance, love, happiness and sadness in these stories.

    Some of the characters in the stories seem ...

    Book Review

    The book comprises of seven short stories which are The arithmetic of breasts, The room with a sea-view, Sky Park, Dr. Love, The scent of conscience, A place they call scary, What men want and two very short stories which are Our Lovers and The troll on page 16 that lasts only for two to three pages. Out of all these stories, my personal favorite story is Dr. Love. All the stories in this book have one thing in common which is human emotions, as you scroll through the book you will discover a...

    A great piece of writing

    As I get my hands over this book, I found myself falling in love with words again. The book is a combination of a number of short stories with each story backed up by serious issues.
    The stories describe the sexual fantasies of the main characters. But at the same time, each story manages to pass on a serious message very nicely.
    The book is a quick read and can be easily finished in one sitting. Although, I would suggest you to read one story a day and take time to appreciate the writing.

    A good read after a very long time

    I loved reading The Arithmetic of Breasts and Other Stories by Rochelle Potkar. It is beautifully written and various emotions are depicted marvelously. After a long time, I have read such a good ebook. Though a fiction, but we can relate some of the incidents happening in real life. Only I didn’t like the “Room with a view”. It was too complexed as to what Dia wanted. The Arithmetic of Breasts was full of exploring relationships in different phases of life. It was worded very well. Sky Park ...

    Makes for an interesting reading !

    Comments


    I was recommended to this book by a friend and that the title of the book screams for attention from the deviated was all the more a reason to buy it.Its my first ebook purchase and I have no regrets.I found the language rich, almost poetic, with good choice of words.
    There are multiple characters that one can/would like to relate to in day to day life and conflicting emotions that one routinely experiences.The range of thoughts in these stories is wide,sometimes wild and
    restless...

    Review - The Arithmetic of Breasts

    There are accidents, chances, flukes, fate and then there is serendipity. Discovering ‘The Arithmetic of Breasts and other stories’ by a lilting new voice was most definitely the last one.

    The short stories in the book - seven in total (and two half stories as the author prefers to call them) are a bouquet bound in the trellis of human emotions, needs, wants, complexities and complexes. Yet, the tales somehow are still able to celebrate the boundless. The author gives us (time and again a...

    unabashed - an ode to Rajo guna (passion/motion/action state of mind)

    a variety of characters - the common thread running through all of them is passion that is driving them. Passion that is sometimes dark, sometimes vain and sometimes frail - well a lot of shades of passion have been explored through the characters and stories. It felt like I knew someone who had a few shades of some of the characters...so in that sense it felt real. But when I scrolled down the last page after reading it, I felt the stories of these characters were revealed unabashedly.

    The Impatient poetry in 'The Arithmetic Of Breasts'

    The first story ‘The Arithmetic of breasts’ is told conventionally and has all the technical details to live up to its title. When the story is of a couple who meet, marry, have children experience tragedy, all in 5k words, it ends up being a narration – so much tell and little show. It felt like the story could not make up its mind if it wants to be a short story or a novella. Moreover, the view point character of the story Narain. But on couple of occasions, it switches to the woman and co...

    Compelling & Interesting Read.

    The Arithmetic of Breasts and Other Stories by Rochelle Potkar is a collection which reverberates the thoughts of a common public. It is so personally said, beautifully conceived and elegantly depicted through a series of emotions. The great Indian conservatism to a normal school girl fantasy is been portrayed. I simply loved the story named 'The Scent of Conscience'. Perfect style and tuning up has made the stories the finest amongst the adult fiction collection. I wish this turned to a book...
