      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?

      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.

    Description
    ‘A classic story teller’ SHASHI DESHPANDE “Monideepa Sahu constructs her stories on strong, clear lines, building character, detail and mood, giving in the end, a glimpse of life.” USHA KR In this collection of short stories, strangers waiting at a bus stop take off on a magical journey. Going home in the rain can mean taking unlikely detours. A mother and son’s tour through a royal city becomes a journey of rediscovering each other. A lovely young mother crosses into the twilight zone beyond sweetness and light. Food becomes an instrument of torture in ‘Breakfast.’ Everyday situations and people reveal extraordinary facets. These radiant images range from warm and humane to poignant and chilling. They reveal the whimsy and playfulness, the raw edges, the heartbreak, and all things in-between that comprise the human condition.

    A wonderful collection of short stories!

    This book is a delightful read with some stories that stick with you for a long long time. Monideepa's style is strongly evocative and the characters are ones you end up falling for and rooting for. Buy it already. Perfect to curl up with on the sofa on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Beautiful stories.

    Simplicity is Complex

    Living single in the city, unlikely friendships that develop during everyday commutes, the complexity of motherhood and pockets of everyday isolation- just some of the themes Monideepa deals with in her life-affirming collection, Going Home in the Rain, and Other Stories.

    Staying Home In Rains and Enjoying

    Just completed 'Going Home in the Rain and other stories' of Monideepa Sahu. Enjoyed it thoroughly, as I could relate to many situations that the author has so well described like -
    'A Royal Tour' - where the mother relates her mixed emotions on going to Mysore with her 17-year-old son, who would be leaving for studies after the tour. This story reminded me of my trip to IIT-Kharagpur with my son for his convocation, when I was happy and proud that he was graduating from there but was very sa...
