Kunal Sen's Left from Dhakeshwari hits the Indian market
Most of us love reading books, but at times reading a whole book can become tiresome, especially in
our hectic lives. This is where short stories come to rescue us. Kunal Sen’s much acclaimed book is a
perfect example of how short stories can motivate you to think, investigate and introspect yourself about the sins like greed and lust and about how we will deal with troublesome situations.
Kunal Sen's ‘Left from Dhakeshwari’ is a collection of nine stories of people who are just like us, or similar to us, but have either fallen prey to the path of lust or are dying inside dealing with trials and tribulations.
The stories are enchanting, scintillating and takes you on a ride of wide array of emotions while straddling between tragedy and drama.
Everyone will have their favorite from this range of stories, with tale narrations about a Bengali actress who reaches her hometown to get closer to the past she had once left behind to a high paced drama about a man who stalks a woman for fifteen years. Some of the stories will prompt readers to think about institution of marriage while others will allow you to explore the world
through the eyes of a runaway teenage girl.
The author, Kunal Sen, has used a unique approach while dealing with his characters. His work is commendable in the sense that all his characters seem to be ordinary people, with failures and success even though each one of them makes an extraordinary decision.
