    Description
    Delusions has Rohit, an actor par excellence, slipping into different characters even when he is not supposed to be acting. Devika, his fiercely loving wife, finds an unorthodox way to draw him out of his delusions. In The Square, three successful painters hold an impromptu contest with their friend, who is unknown and a recluse. The result is expected or is it? The Vigil is about Naina, a young expectant mother, who is also a very busy professional. She makes all arrangements for the birth of her child but finds she has missed out on something very vital. Is it too late to make amends? A Lifetime is about the choices Tara makes when she falls in love under the ominous shadow of honour killing. Can she live with her choice? Fifteen stories, myriad emotions, diverse characters, milieus, situations make The Vigil and other stories a compelling read

    A wonderful variety of short stories.

    In spite of the fact that each story in the collection depicted a different aspect of life, there is an underlying thread of optimism in all of them. The Author seems to have drawn on various personal experiences to portray true to life incidents with great simplicity and that is the USP of the book. Excellent Work. Looking forward to reading more of Ms. Gita's works.

    The Vigil

    All the stories will keep you guessing and the characters all feel real to you. The stories have a grip and whatever maybe the scene, whether it is a sad scene or a tense scene or any other, the author has very well portrayed all the emotions and the flow of the words is simply wonderful. Thouroughly enjoyed reading the book!!

    The Vigil

    The Vigil and Other stories portrays a wonderful, contemporary facts and the art of expression in a lucid style. I liked the The Gift, Time and space and Dreams can tell the most. The essence of the writing/story was again redefined by Mrs Gita V. Reddy.

    The mix of an author and an artist inspires me, expecting to read more of her books in the future.
