I have never been into stories before coming to the village. I always wanted big books because I am a fast reader and small stories would kind of get over soon, so I must say for a good part of my reading life, I missed the opportunity of reading stories.
It is so true that a story or a short story is actually reflection of society and its values and trends at the time of its publication. As I complete one book after the other, the love just increases.
A collection of 18 stories set in the Rayalaseema backdrop. The author is a teacher by profession so the stories more or less revolve around good values, teaching, writing and bring into light the issues in that region.
In a simple language with just a hint of seema slang, the book is a good light read. Of them all, I liked Narahari - Nijaayitee, a touching story of a postman and Tribhujam which got me as did the author thinking for a while about who the culprit here was and it is indeed the fact I have seen happen in a lot of houses but never thought of it the way the author did.
