A sky-blue paper bird glued to a mirror. A handmade book on music to be gifted. A pair of mud-brown tea cups without handles. A shelf to hoard dying memories. A little home tucked away in a remote village. A haunting voice after boarding an empty bus… The images on the cover belong to people whose stories are packed in this book: A man who meets his lost friend in a new world. A seeker who resists everyone to reach an unwanted place. Lovers that separate, only to find some hope. A failed artist who finds another voice. A new entrant in a home who creates turmoil. A cheated girl who makes a desperate call. A shattered man who pegs on a sudden dreamy trip. With eleven stories of unrequited love, hope, acceptance, heart breaks or just needs, ‘Afsaane’ will tug at your heartstrings and open windows to people that experience unusual situations in far too usual lives.
Another short read that I have read and is a beautiful collection of 11 stories. The stories had flow in them and will hooked you till the end.
Each story was very different from one another and they talked about different topics like love, memories, friendship, infidelity, workaholics, addiction, relationships and hope.
The author has written about various regular common topics of life with a different story and views. The book deals with our generation’s mindset towards life.
Each story had a magic in itself and are really power pack filled with too many emotions.
The title itself is too catchy ‘Afsaane’ and the cover of the book is also intriguing that contains little things kept in the shelf which are pointing to the stories in the book.
