Sana has Depicted the women across the Subcontinent. Providing us insight into the lives of the women, whose culture is both similar and strange to us. A collection of 10 engrossing short stories, recounts the life of ordinary yet extraordinary women, that will melt your heart.
While reading the book I felt that some of the stories in this book were part of me and my life. The connection was so potent and real. Written in a very simple language yet artistically told.
Selecting My three favorite Short stories from this beautiful bouquet of stories kind of proved difficult, but I had to give you all a glimpse of the book.
These are the 3 stories that moved me and shook me from the very core of my heart:
- Farida: A story of a 12yrs old girl, who is very excited for her very 1st train ride to Lahore. Farida, who had never imagined, that the hours between her very 1st train ride, will wreak havoc in her life.
- Summi: This is a story of a wife of a Soldier. Summi like a brave Soldier, bore the guilt of her husband’s past and plowed on in life.
- Beena: Beena so like me, is a fan of Shahrukh Khan. Plans her Wedding Anniversary, but only to get disappointed.
