This is one of my first stories. You can read it here.
My story Black and Blue published in this book is based on the Peshawar children massacre happened in 16th December, 2014. How a child’s dream would change due to such a traumatic incident is described here.
My story Homework published in this book revolves around best friends Ani and Tina. They are in sixth grade. Tina copies her homework from Ani and things are going fine till one day something has happened around the homework and their friendship is subjected to a hard test.
Amlanation is a story that tries to explore the possibility of inducing repentance in a juvenile convict who does something horrible. Told by four narrators, this story looks at the concept of crime, guilt and punishment from several angles.
A collection stories themed on personalization of inanimate objects. My story here talks about the heroic feats of a simple tool so popular in middle-class families.
Tried a polyglot narrative to poke fun at the panchayet system in villages. Though a satire, I’d prefer to call it a slapstick humor because of the experimental language used here. It’d be indecent to not acknowledge G.V. Desani here whose writing had encouraged me to write this story.
