‘The Punctual Phantom and other silly stories’ is a collection of humorous short stories that capture the craziness and comedy of contemporary Indian life.
A young man attends a job interview for the umpteenth time, a writer eavesdrops on a conversation at a pizzeria. A social butterfly tries hard to keep her clique under control, a disgruntled mother gives her honest opinion of motherhood. A bunch of boys in a hostel scare an unwanted roommate away, a busy working woman runs for president in her apartment complex out of need. A young employee makes a risky move in office politics, a young girl who is being blackmailed uncovers the identity of her blackmailer. A successful businesswoman is forced to marry a dog by her street smart mother-in-law and a fake psychic tries to exorcise a real ghost. This collection is about ordinary people dealing with the tantrums that life throws at them and being able to nod their heads and smile along the way. We are sure you will relate to the characters in this collection and will definitely chuckle along with them. We at Litlatte, are a group of writers from Bangalore who love spinning tales. And that passion has brought us together and inspired us to tell our own stories.

I haven't recently read a well written short stories by Indian authors till recently I came across this book. I enjoyed each of the stories in the book. Could relate easily as because I belong to the MNC-Coffee house-Multiplex-visiting generation. Nice storytelling effort from all the story tellers. Hoping to read more from you guys... Best of Luck!!!
