Reviews

“These stories are a charming ode to love, longing and many mysteries of life that cannot be solved but only enjoyed. Several of Kumar’s stories espouse a travelogue style description of places and situations with minute attention paid to details”.
Rituparna Sengupta (Freelance Journalist)

“Kumar attempts to explore relationships through several aspects: sexual, emotional and intellectual. There are no heroes, and no overt preaching of values and morals. It focusses on people who are thrown into the commotion of a fractured modernity. Worth a read!”
Hindustan Times : Lakshana Palat

“The stories make the reader sit up and think, about the characters, what they are going through, why they have behaved in such a way. The language is simple and evocative and the characters come across as human beings sometimes with weak points. And most of the time the reader relates to them, something that goes to the credit of the author. ”
Sunday Guardian : Purbi Panwar 

“This collection of short stories is an assimilation of ideas, characters and language. It makes one embark on a journey that is thought-provoking, beautiful and real, all at the same time, and leaves one feeling both fulfilled yet hoping for more.
