Book Review: The Rude Tenderness of Our Hearts

In commuter's rage.., Uncategorized on August 29, 2016 at 10:01 am

-Do you like Short stories?

-NO.

– Why?

– I feel its difficult to convey heart and soul of story in few words.

– But that’s writer’s fuss. Why you don’t like reading short stories?

– I am fade up of reading love/sex/dhoka/dosti/samaj/anyaay kinda stereo type stories.

– Ahaa, Interesting! Try reading this Book.

– I told you, I don’t read Short Stories!

– This is different!

– I don’t believe ” This is different”- bullshit.

– Don’t be judgemental. Read.

– OKAY.

Above is my dialogue with self regarding the book I am talking about!

What Next?

*Reads* *Reads* *Reads*

And *Reads* on and on!

Glues to it.

7 stories. Different contexts. Diverse emotions. One feel- MUST READ.

Every story develops in different background, expresses different emotions.

Divine passionate love, sacrifice of a father, self dialogue and assessment of busy life race, poverty v/s fatherhood, honour killing, life priorities, patriotism- and lot more.

Usual humanly emotions/qualities with unusual narration. The classy selection of words and the mesmerizing way of story telling- it has it all.

Every story the book narrates, makes home within you in one or the other form. Every character it creates, merges within your soul. Every story binds you and at the same time frees you too.

No, I shall not be talking about any of the seven stories, as I don’t want to spoil the magic it will create. Besides the stories are so strong and touching that every reader will carry a different perception/view about it. Read your self and experience the aura.

Conclusion: A MUST READ

I don’t rate Book, yet I will call this – 5 / 5 – A total different experience in lanes of words, characters, emotions, stories.

Author:

I know the author of the book Mr. Saket Suryesh through Twitter (@saket71) and this book opened up an entire fresh aspect of him to me. I read the book without knowing his personal details and after reading the book when I read his introduction, I was happily amused. Amused for my correct finding! Finding about- one emotion that every story among seven tells- fatherhood. Upon finishing the book, inside me a voice said, only a father (to be precise father of a daughter) can write this delicate feelings and strong bonds so perfectly! And I was write about it. Mr. Saket lives at Delhi with his wife and daughter. He works in technology domain and writes between different roles from professional to personal- and hence ads variation to writing. He is well read and balanced in many domains from literature to politics!
