    Description
    In the sleepy rural town of Bikramganj, a halwai named Lachhuman receives a letter from an unseen Lakshmi. A thousand kilometers away in Delhi, a woman waits an eternity for her birth certificate. In the sweltering heat of Chennai, a girl finds solace in her grandfather's shirt. The stakes are high on the Eurorail on its way to Budapest where two Austrians try to trick an Indian woman at a card game. Back home in Vizag, an egg is being poached to perfection. Mango chutney, true to its name, is potpourri of quality short-fiction by some of India's finest writers. Compiled and edited by bestselling author, Harsh Snehanshu, these stories, with just the right amount of sugar and tang, shall provoke, tickle and above all, linger your mind.

    About the Editor

    Harsh Snehanshu is twenty-five but looks older. After graduating from IIT in 2011, he invested a year each on entrepreneurship, pan - India travel and young India fellowship-a prestigious one-year fellowship in the liberal arts. During 2012 - 13, he travelled solo across the country on a shoestring budget, sleeping wherever there was space and eating whatever was available, discovering India and a bit of himself. His fascination for stories and abundance of Gray hair are result of this wanderlust and reflection. The author of because shit happened-what not to do in a start-up! and the best selling Kanav - Tanya trilogy, Harsh is a prolific freelance writer, having been published in the caravan, the Hindu, tehelka along others. Currently an exchange student at sciences Po, Paris at their school of urban affairs, Harsh is working on his forthcoming travel memoir. Mango chutney is his fifth book.

    Amazing and talented young writers...

    Amazing collection. It's an easy read and it goes to show that there is story writing essence in the young generation. I believe there is future of Indian writing seeing the way the young writers have penned their plots. I salute Harsh for identifying each of them and making an attractive fabric of their writings.

    Mostly delicious!

    This chutney is sweet, spicy, tangy: indeed a wonderful melange of flavours, definitely worth reading. I particularly liked Arjun Bhatia's inspiring 'Sawai', Alka Gurha's ironic 'Someone with Character', Riti Kaunteya's delightfully humorous 'The Postman', Purba Ray's heart rending Angels and Demons, and Sakshi Nanda's exqisitely detailed Partition story, 'On the Other Side'. A few of the stories are too obscure for my taste, but overall, it is representative of present day India. It could ha...

    Yummy! A rare mix of literary talents!

    Of all the anthologies of short-fiction published in India, this one stands out. First, it doesn't have a tacky title or book-cover, but rather refreshing ones. Second, the stories are so varied and rich that they can appeal to the readers from all the nationalities and ages.

    For the first time, an anthology has stories ranging from genres like thriller, literary fiction, crime, children's fiction, young adult and even horror. Miracle, the story with which the anthology begins with dazzles ...
