Description

Doppelganger: Short Stories is a collection of stories by Madhavi S. Mahadevan.

Summary of the Book

Do our lives flow like a secret river under the outer guise, day after day, month after month, year after year? If there is such a world, are there clocks which measure the passage of time? Are there mirrors which show the world for what it is? In these 18 stories set in urban, middle-class India, readers are transported to the uncertainty and illogical nature of the times. In these stories, the boundaries between the real and the unreal begin to fade, malls transform into haunted retreats, golf clubs and airport waiting halls become crossroads where the past meets the present. These stories shows us the isolation, the insecurities, the secret angst and hidden passions which lurk behind the seemingly eventless lives. These stories cross all emotions and draw readers into unique and compact worlds.

Brilliant

Brilliant is a word that falls short for this set of short stories written by Madhavi Mahadevan! To be perfectly honest I had never heard of this writer before I started reading this book. I had no idea about the treat that was in store for me. In every single story Madhavi delves deep into typical situations set in the Indian context with such clarity that you feel you are living the life of her characters. If I were to say one single story was not interesting it would be a lie. Be it the so...

A must read for those who enjoy emotional stimulation.

"Outside on the road, she notes, the traffic signal is red. She gazes through the window at the waiting vehicles and wonders how does a woman know that her marriage has entered dangerous waters?"
So beautifully subtle, and yet the connection between the traffic light and life cannot be missed. Evokes introspection, right into the deep recesses of each ones heart to the shadowy secretive multiples of existence. Doppelganger is a book that cannot be put down, but the urge to go slow and enjoy e...

Visceral beauty

Winter, with its visceral languor and light, produces in us the ineffable horror and w, the
Time and memory are the dominant tropes that run through Madhavi S. Mahadevan’s collection of short stories entitled Doppelgänger. The stories constantly seem to interrogate the extent to which the impetuosity of time transforms human consciousness. To what extent is reality framed by our distinct subjectivities and how does the way we understand or interpret the world change with age? Mahadevan explo...
