"Kerala's rural life is so splendidly captured and sensitively chronicled in these stories," Sethu, celebrated novelist (The New Indian Express, August 7, 2011).

"The author of Karthyani's Hen is no Tolstoy, but he too handles his characters with oodles of compassion," Professor M. K. Sanu, renowned critic (The Hindu, August 8, 2011).

Ten humorous short stories for all ages.

The man with two daggers is the tale of a master entertainer, one who is born to make others laugh. But Koshy Kunj is much more than an entertainer. Read on to see how he brings a sublime engineering college campus alive with spirited performances and a truly unique love affair.

Karthyani's Hen tells the story of a gritty village woman who digs deep to recover a lost hen. The fiery woman is gifted with unconventional logic; and she uses her talents to spice up the world around her.

Kunjandi is a revelation; his superlative arsenal includes peeshots and walking up trees. It is the magic world of a real-life superman.

Woven around college campuses and rural village backgrounds, these stories showcase ordinary people with extraordinary talents. Their unusual encounters keep the reader riveted, in anticipation of the inevitable twists and turns.

A book you will enjoy reading.
