    Description
    A collection of nine tragedies, nine stories; stories of urban loneliness, lust, death, obsession, memories and marriages, but found together in seductive melancholy when you are or when you have.. left from Dhakeshwari. The title denotes a dimension that's both a time and a place: a point of departure and the forbearer of journeys. Pensive women with souls of poetesses and violent men with eyes of children, the characters in these interconnected stories are also in search, of a time and place they can call their own.

    In 'Bomb Church', Aniruddha tries to piece together his mother's identity after her mysterious departure; the only clues available in the existential whodunit being: a soap-box, a brown shoe and the statements of five witnesses, while 'Salt Lake' recounts an unusual affair between a girl with a three-inch scar on her cheek and a mime-artist with scars of his own. Other characters in this collection include a runaway teenage-girl, an agoraphobic writer, a Bengali film actress, a sadistic guitar player, identical twins, a ghostess, and a manic-depressive housewife. These people are at that point in their lives when their cherubic idealism is beginning to fade into disillusionment. They are young but uprooted, rebellious but rudderless. These are stories of their lives.

    The beautiful and Dark tragedies of love

    The content of the book has 9 stories in it; each one with a different form of human emotions. They are diverse in their own ways yet similar in one. The stories tell us about the psyche of a person and situations that stop them to run behind their instinct and hold on to the social glitches. The connections of human emotions and the real world are definitely the objects that thrive around us. That has helped here to create a Melodrama of the stories. There is no humor anywhere in the book an...
