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.
