INSIDE INDIA, the first of the twin collections of short stories to reach readers, --the other being OVERLAPPING WORLDS, --opens a passage to India different from the one in the conventional "inside" series. Whereas the series in the category are written mostly to provide information, INSIDE INDIA is a collection of short stories whose main purpose is to delight readers with interesting narratives about life and events. The stories cover a wide range of topics and themes related to India, but they freely wander from time present to time past and the future, and move from one place to another within the country and around the world, as if there are no borders or boundaries, all the while mixing reality, fiction, and fantasy. They combine different styles from the narrative to the dramatic and the lyrical, and blend seriousness and humor all united to serve one purpose above all: to make readers enjoy the narratives and provide them with food--slow food, to be specific--for thought.
