About the Book –
A collection of stories, some of which focuses on:
A turbulent relationship between a mother and a daughter takes a sudden turn when the daughter stumbles across a past that she never knew…..
The golden period of a professor’s life is tainted by questions about his purpose until one night gives him all the answers he needs……..
Desperate times test us all but when hunger drives a girl to do the unthinkable, her life changes forever……….
Woven around the lives of the people around us – the shy girl on the metro, your domestic help, your neighbors and perhaps even you – this collection of short stories will take you on a bittersweet journey that explores the spectrum that is part of any human relationship and all the complexity and chaos that secretly dwell within the homes and hearts of India.
Often laced with an element of introspection, the stories are sure to change the way you see the world around you…
Panorama like the name suggests is a collection of perspectives or outlook on life incidences and characters; a set of 15 heart warming short stories.
A book that will connect you with ample situations in life and somehow you would feel connected to the stories. The writer has beautifully captured the experiences of life and have put it in words. A perfect light read.
Some of the stories felt like high notes where some made me feel like there could have been more. The writing style is very detailed and every story following same fashion felt non interesting. Also all the stories in one stretch can make you feel bored a little. I also found the book cover not up to the mark.
I would rate this book 2/5 🙂
