I don't dare give his name as it isn't revealed until the end of the story. He ponders life, death and everything in between, including the relevance of tradition and the facets of truth. He loves and cares for his ailing wife Sulekha while seeing to his fatherly duty in arranging his daughter's marriage with the proverbial suitable boy. The ...

    An unconventional and thought provoking book...

    What is Existentialism?
    Why would anyone base his novel on it?
    Whats so great about it that anyone would consider making it the core of their book?

    All these and more questions I faced when I took up "Tall Man Small Shadow" by Vipin Behari Goyal for reading.
    Well first of all, I hadn't heard the term "existentialism" before I came across this book and that's one reason why the book appealed to me. The other being the cover where a tall man standing projects a small shadow of a woman. Pretty ...

He had a unsuccessful love affair with Muslim girl when he was a student and tried to commit suicide. So he is afraid of falling in love with any other girl. When he meets Aalya he falls in love with her shadow as "escape mechanism". Aalya was intelligent research scholar in English literature an...

    Breath of fresh air.

    What I loved about the book is how author has used a surreal concept of 'falling in love with a shadow' in a typical Indian setting. Very different & symbolic. Also the use of language is simple and classy.. one sentence in every page is like a quotation..All in all good story line,multiple angles, multiple interpretations, good book!
