  21 Grams 

21 Grams is an assortment of twenty-one short stories that centre around powerful feelings of guilt, loneliness, doubt, among others, that lurk in the obscure corners of human consciousness, often unacknowledged or unaccepted. The confessions of a wife, the unconventional longings of a lonely man, the thirst of an unrequited soul, or even the refreshing simplicity of a child’s perception; the firm-footed plots blur every distinction between reality and fiction leaving readers wavering between belief and disbelief, faith and scepticism, confidence and uncertainty.

  Scream & Other Urban Legends 

This collection of short stories will take you by surprise. Each one is unique, experimental, minimalist and together they explore a range of themes. The stories become an explosive deconstruction of sorts or an erudite construction as you read them yet sometimes are neither. From obsessed sculptors, lyrical relationships that refuse to go anywhere and self- exploratory narratives to silhouettes looming from deep green ponds, the writing offers a fresh look at the genre itself.

  Not Just Another Story 

Tangled relationships, life’s contradictions, social injustices, psychic complexities, and subliminal drives are the subjects of the stories. The protagonists grapple with the oppressive forces to evolve a paradigm for living, ending up defeated or scarred, at times. The young man’s rage against his adulterous father, the Adivasi child, Bhera’s revenge on the Zamindar for his mother’s rape and death, Banno’s suicide to save her lover from AIDS, and the struggles of the other protagonists generate empathy and pathos and show that poetic justice is a myth or at best a mere chance.

  @ Overdrive to the Stars 

Overdrive to the Stars is a sci-fi romp through the planets and moons of the Solar System ending up in the ship of the Aliens parked somewhere along the orbit of Pluto. The hero is a man called John, who murders his parents, callously kills all his girlfriends and finally betrays the world to the Aliens. That world is gripped in a War of the Worlds that does not get resolved. He is a conscienceless killer and completely self-centered. The world of the Moon is explored, that of Mars is examined, the satellites of Jupiter and Saturn are looked at. The book may be seen as an experiment in necromantic psychopathy.

  Sathyameva Jayathe 

The book brings out clearly the inherent malaise of religious bigotry in the society. By emphasizing on the Oneness of God and universality of the essence of religions, it strongly advocates the need for religious tolerance and harmony amongst all religions of the world. Through the characters that are so common in our daily life, the book touches upon the subtleties of human nature which is often in conflict with itself. The narrative establishes that if one were to seek truth as dictated by one’s conscience, it would bring immeasurable solace and comfort.

  A Match Made in Heaven : A 2000-year Old Love Story (The Legend of an Indian Princess who Became the Queen of Korea) 

Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh is considered the birthplace of Lord Rama and it is a sacred pilgrimage centre for Indians. Most people, however, are unaware that most Koreans consider Ayodhya as their ‘maternal’ home. Every year, about hundreds of South Korean tourists visit Ayodhya to pay tributes to their legendary queen, Hae Hwang-ok who was born in Ayodhya as Princess Suri Ratna. According to historical research, Princess Suri Ratna from Ayodhya travelled to Korea on sea and married King Kim Suro of the Karak clan in 48 AD. Both India and South Korea, in an attempt to commemorate the legend and forge closer ties, have agreed to build a large monument dedicated to Suri Ratna at Ayodhya. The narrative of the story builds up the needed linkages between India and Korea as was desired by Prime Minister Narender Modi during his visit to South Korea in May 2015.
