Foreword

There is neither a structure nor a texture to this blog. The subject matter can be anything and everything under the sky that I feel about at any given point that I happen to sit and blog rambling about everything in general. My thoughts and views are basically influenced by what I read, hear, gather, and ponder... if there is any copyright violation which I have not duly acknowledged, kindly let me know.

Parishkaaram (Kadhaa Samputi) - Kasinatha Viswam

Second pick,

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.
