This book is collection of six short stories. Once you start reading this small book, you would not like to put it down until you have finished reading it. Even after reading, the sentiments expressed in the stories linger in your mind for many days. We hardly have seen these types of short stories in our (Gujarati) language. For, our short story writers hardly go out of their environment to the whole wide world. The writer has given the ‘genesis’ of these short stories in the introductory comments in his Foreword “Social Changes Through Short Stories”. After all, the culture in the mind of a sensitive writer usually becomes the source in creating short stories. Here the humanness in the author is seen alive. So, tender sentiments shared in these short stories awake sensitive feelings in the readers.
