Description
31 love stories by 27 authors

Comprising thirty-one love stories by twenty-seven authors, Urban Shots: Love Collection carries on the Urban Shots series which focuses on the lives of every- day Indians all across the small towns and big cities of the nation. Featuring authors such as R. Chandrasekar, Paritosh Uttam, Ira Trivedi, Arunava Sinha, Rohini Ke- jriwal and many more, it explores the tender side of life, leaving the reader dreaming and smiling, feeling ten- der, moved, giddy and loved along with the characters themselves. A must-have book in your collection!

Weaving through the expanse of emotions that make up love, debutant writers and well known authors bring you a collection of stories that will pull at your heartstrings. These heartfelt tales take you on a journey across India. In Sultangarh, a young school teacher contemplates the better rishta for herself. At Esplanade, a man awaits a rendezvous with his much younger ‘girlfriend’. In Chennai, an IT Projects Manager meets a mysterious stranger. Love blossoms in unexpected places at a jhalmuri stall outside a BPO; two insomniacs from Mumbai meet by night; and in the quiet of Flurys café, a man revisits a time gone by with his lover.

Many of these stories delve into secret places. An intimate moment reveals darker secrets. A bride sits at the altar conflicted. The truth about a marriage comes unfurling ‘out of the closet’. A passionate couple try to address a ‘loud’ problem. While a once happy couple grapple with the stings of betrayal.

Laughter, as fortune favours the believer of positions of the stars; a street smart young lad walks into a marriage proposal setup; a boisterous middle aged woman chatters away about her secret love life and many other stories.

Intense, haunting and beautiful!

The writers do very well here to draw out varied intense emotions in the lives of the characters.

Impressive debuts by a number of writers like Gayathri Hingorani, Jairaj, Hina, Varsha, Siddhartha Lal, Anant Tr...

Carefully Handpicked masterpieces

The volume would keep one glued to the pages. Carefully handpicked masterpieces. Surely reflects a changing reading as well as writing trends in the nation. Difenietly relates and keeps one to re live memories from various shades of life, some expirienced some still ripening in the flights of imagination.

Less Interesting

I feel boring while reading this book. The stories are too short, you can't get enough time to relate with those stories. The stories are predictable and like daily soaps. To me its not worth buying. Its waste of time and waste of money.

Sad Buy!! :(

I bought this book in anticipation of it being as good as its previous version. However i was dissapointed. the stories are sad and have to make a special effort to pick this book up and go through the pages, which in itself is a torture. i read this book only by reminding myself that i paid my hard earned money for this crap. The stories are absolute crap. Please dont buy this book.
