    Description
    Man is born. He dies. Between the two events lies his tragicomic lifetime, a cocktail of emotions, thoughts, ideas and actions. He bobs along under the delusion of a well-planned order but life awaits him at blind turns. He may then howl, shards tearing into his soul or he may choose to let the blood sing in his veins. In either case, the mask slips often. Rather than charge like the Light Brigade, most mince along, watching their step, glancing behind, primed to ward o ambush. is treacherous negotiation calls for skills. We compromise, we pretend, we condemn, we judge and on rare occasions we take courage and are kind. It is those bitter sweet increments we live in that these super short yarns seek to capture and reflect. Written for the busy, they entertain and educate, leaving you to ponder long after you have sat back, fighting a frown and a smile.

    An excellent collection

    First things first: the stories are tiny. And that's good, because it enables the author here to show her skill with words. The choice of words hits you as impressive, to begin with, the imagery is well-described, and well felt. Finally, they leave you with something to think about, without fail. It is interesting how the author, whom I know personally, has presented the dilemmas which are both personal, and profoundly universal. I'd recommend.

    Neerja Sangha - is surely a master story teller in the making!

    Her first book, Googly Gaathas, is a collection of short stories - each with a simple but emotion-stirring message from her experiences as a mother, a teacher and an individual so very much involved in the complexities of life in India.

    Very much like O. Henry, the American writer, Ms. Sangha's stories excel in their wit, wordplay, warm characterisation, and surprise endings.

    I started reading her Gaathas and could not put dow...
