      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    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.
