Another GoodReview - from the venerable Times of India

The characters in this collection of short stories - a kabab maker, an oily middleman, a hapless widow, a stiff brigadier - will find resonance in almost everyone. Most people can relate to government corruption, happy coincidence or human greed. Written with a wry sense of humour, the language is crisp. In "New Moon", the "cold air leapt at her like a boisterous canine, tickling her nowe, slipping into her ears, and making her shiver." In "Three Journeys..." the "exhausted mass in the compartment magically unwound itself, poured out of the doors and vanished in the mist."
