What is the true pleasure of reading a short story? This is a valid question as we are all eager to read short stories for they are short and don't require long time commitments from us. You can finish it in an hour, half an hours or within a few hours if it's a little longer than the usual. The question of what you take out from a short story got its best answer when our team got the book Monsoon Minds by Ravi Nambiar. This is a collection of eighteen short stories. Being a debut book by the author, you get even more than what you expect Monsoon Minds to be! The stories are sentimental and a kind of 'towards' movement you will find in most of them...

The tales of our ancient days are always fascinating and India, having so deep a history, is the queen of folklores and legends. Every part of India - from north to south, east to west or the central plains... we have stories coming from ages. One of such stories is the story of the prince of Orchha, Madhya Pradesh - Lala Hardaul. Lala Hardaul's legend has been wonderfully recapitulated in a book by author Rakesh Sharma and the title of the book is - Hardaul: Ek Bharatiya Yuva ki Soch. Rakesh has given the legendary story a slightly different touch and made it a story which connotes the modern scenario.
