I am excited beyond words as I write this post today. In my recent post I had mentioned about my dream ship – The short story anthology by five writers – Along with me, Tanima Kedar, Ishan Dafaria, Anuj Kumar and Akash Deep. The book was released online on the auspicious day of Vijayadasami.
Here are the ebay and ShopClues link along with the Goodreads page and Reviews :-
I am including here the blurb of the book along with an excerpt of one of my stories – He loves me not. Just to remind, this anthology has three of my stories published.
The blurb of the book :-
Drag, it can, from the splendours of dawn to the gloomy even-fall; sooner or later, but, it touches us all – LOVE.. indeed. “Love and Other Enchantments” is a collection of fifteen heart-rending love stories where in each will reveal a new facet of love and will arouse a new set of emotions and even newer perceptions of relationship, sacrifice, devotion, depression, hurt, lust and madness.
Lose yourself in a whirlwind of emotions, only to be rescued by that thing called love. The Fictitious Five is a group of five writers.

all united by their unabating passion for writing.
They believe in the power of words and aspire to keep weaving them to create delightful stories that touch the hearts of the readers.
Excerpt from my story ‘He Loves Me Not’ :-
‘………The moon was shining the brightest, showering powdery white rays over the surroundings. A light refreshing breeze slid past her, on the cue to which she wrapped her coat tightly around her, consoled by nature’s gesture.
An eerie silence reverberated in the deserted parking lot which made her quiver a bit.
All at once, as if to prove her worst fears right, a sense of vertigo blinded her which seemed to over haul her more and more with each passing second. Whether it was due to the overpowering drink or due to the hot rush of hormones seeping into the kinky recesses of her cacophonous brain, she couldn’t conjure a reason at that harrowing moment.
The very next second, she slumped to the floor as if in a bolt, a groan escaping her throat…………’
I would like to thank the readers of my blog, who have always encouraged me with their resounding presence and through the indelible imprints they left behind as comments.
