My take on the book
I really liked reading through these stories and was impressed by the way the authors creativity took her to so much depths in bringing together these stories. The amount of creativity and thoughtfulness that went curating these is impressive. The endings are very well planned and the way she keeps the stories incomplete yet letting us know what the end will definitely be is amazing.
My favourite part in the book
I just loved the chapter dried leaves a lot. The message you get through it that not every arranged marriage is a dull one and a relationship is not always a hot and happening time spent with each other saying love you to each other thousand times.
Apart from this, the first story Amma, beautifully played by a father, the story of Saira bringing up herself after a broken marriage and two kids is great too.
The naked illusion is another story that gripped me well till the end and left me with an entirely new vision of a part of society, that we so much judge the wrong way otherwise. I must say, this is one story that you should read first when you start the book.
All the others are equally amazing and would open up your vision to society even more.
