What moves a timid girl to turn aggressive? Can a very old man conquer his abject fear of death? Why is love so difficult to recognize? How does utter revulsion turn to acceptance? The answers to these questions and more are couched in the multifaceted and inspirational short stories belonging to different genres - romance, comedy, horror and poignant human interest. They explore the depth of emotions that drive ordinary people to rise to extraordinary heights in moments extraordinary. One discovers that there is much more to routine events than meets the eye and simplicity can actually be quite complex. The inexplicable presence of miracle in life never ceases to surprise. Written with clarity and sensitivity, Malati Jaikumar's keen perception and awareness of human relationships and emotions make the stories come alive. She captures the effervescent humour of youth, the pathos of heart rending loss and total depression as well as the sheer terror and torture within the so called safe four walls of a house. Sixteen of the 20 powerful narratives revolve around women from different strata of society, delving deep into their minds and emotions as they struggle to emerge from a trapped and claustrophobic existence.
