Synopsis

Chic city bachelorettes, spirited schoolgirls and college-girls, and feisty domestic goddesses find laughter and love as they bridge the generation gap, dodge creeps, bond with husbands and manage children.

Real, amusing and heart-warming, these are the stories of the girls and women of urban India and how they rock it, every single day!

Very good effort, but stories are very short , they end abruptly making you feel at a loss.

I liked the stories in this order - Mountain magic, Monkey, Mr. Wrong. 'Mountain Magic' is a little story on Romance, 'Monkey' seemed to me a children's story (unless I missed some subtlety) and 'Mr. Wrong' is for a more mature readership. An anthology of diverse genres may not work out well. I am not sure how's the rest of the collection. Each of the stories is written very well, good language and flow. The ending of 'Mountain Magic' is fairly good, but that of 'Mr. Wrong' didn't appeal to me much. The strong point of 'Mr. Wrong' is its dialogues, but the storyline needs to be more positive.

Hi Radhika,

Loved the writing. Particularly the name Avyaya struck me. It saddened me when shortened it. :-) I would love to read more of your work. Please keep writing.

Warm regards

Three very different stories, yet all of them gripping, and written in a clear, lucid style.What I especially liked was that the grammar and syntax was perfect- these stories are written in good , grammatical English- a rarity these days! ' Mountain magic' has all the elements of the perfect romance; a tall, handsome stranger, a lovely vulnerable heroine, the misty mountains, and the Christmas spirit running through it all. The second story is quite an offbeat one, with a surprising maturity and wisdom.While the third was really amusing; the writer really tickled my funny bone!
Well done and keep writing!

Ya very. I am dying to write uninspiring, mundane stories about random women. Just a tip - when choosing names for characters, keep it simple. Tongue twisters distract the attention of the reader from the subject. Which maybe was your intention because there was not much to go by anyway. Girl hurts knee, meets boy. Teacher watches monkeys with kids. I skipped through the third. It is a sad state of affairs that a book like yours has so many reads, whereas The Gentle Man Who Taught Infinity has only 4.

Jolly good read. The sunny, bright and humourous narratives, a confident blend of dialogue and description and a rather impressive smooth flow to her writing... Radhika has the makings of a potentially quite successful storyteller. Enjoyed the book.

A short story ismore about narration than the plot. All the three stories score full marks on that count.Writer has an easy way of telling stories in a gripping manner and a visual effect. All the Best. Expect to read more stories from Radhika.

Liked the stories, all three of them. Simple, heartfelt and well written. And all of them essentially fulfills the purpose of short stories. Good job done, Radhika. Would like to read further for there must be other beautiful stories in store! :)

It's a nice and light read. Paired best with hot chocolate, cookies with perhaps a dash of the bitters. You go girl!

Awesome! Specially loved the third story, 'Mr Wrong'. My fave quote "When it's the wrong guy, everything you do is sexy". Chick-lit at its best!
