The Turning Point, is a compilation of quick tales from Indian Writers. This consists the work of Nikita Singh, Parinda Joshi, Atulya Mahajan, Shoma Narayanan, Harsh Snehanshu, Judy Balan, Meenakshi Reddy Mahadevan and Durjoy Dutta. Each story right here has a distinct taste, however they’re sure collectively by a standard theme – because the title signifies—a Turning Point.
The book had tales starting from mundane conversations to a criminal offense thriller; from a refined romance to hoping for the nice. So each few pages the reader might dive into completely different genres altogether. One of the best of those tales would undoubtedly (according to me) be ‘The Unlikely Accomplice’ by Parinda Joshi and ‘A Whispered Prayer’by Nikita Singh. The primary story revolves round a Brigadier who tries to uncover the thriller behind his niece’s homicide. This was a superb plot, and equally effectively executed. It was a quick paced story and had the reader hooked on to the book, until the tip. The second story talks about how a younger spouse offers along with her insecurities from the previous occasions in her life and the way she tries to beat her fears and lives in hope that in the future things might be better. This resonates with the present state of affairs in our nation where ladies are being horribly handled and it tells that there’s nonetheless hope for a greater tomorrow. I cherished these two tales. They have been sensible. Hats off to Parinda Joshi and Nikita Singh.
‘Summer Showers’ by Harsh Snehanshu is a breezy story of how two folks met and realized they have been in love. The feelings weren’t overdone and with a number of miracles (what’s flawed in miracles, I consider in miracles too!) it made for an excellent learn. I equally appreciated ‘X Boss’ by Shoma Narayanan which talks about how Sanjana resented working underneath her boss (Sigh! Inform me about it.) after which the extraordinary occasions that happen, which comes to haunt her, in a humorous approach although. I loved studying this one. Atulya Mahajan’s ‘The U-Turn’ offers with how a dad-to-be tries to beat his fears of turning into a dad and worries if his fatherly duties would have an effect on his profession, being the workaholic that he’s. Again, that is one thing which each husband may undergo. It was properly achieved, however the transition might have been gradual. However maintaining with the theme of the book, the one scene witnessed by the dad-to-be was sufficient to soften the guts of any workaholic.
The other three tales by Meenakshi Reddy Mahadevan, Durjoy Dutta and Judy Balan have been perhaps not suited to my style. In ‘Insert A Carrot’by Meenakshi Reddy, the whole story was within the type of a dialog and after some extent I misplaced observe of who stated what. Maybe the dialog might have revolved around extra subjects than only one. In ‘The Return of the Vampire’ by Judy Balan, where the Vampire mocks the Twilight collection, I didn’t quite like the theme. Others would have appreciated it most likely. I did have much hopes for Durjoy Dutta’s ‘The English Teacher’ after reading the title. The plot was good however the best way it was taken was again not one thing that I would love reading. Once more, my opinion, others might need appreciated it.
In total, the book was nearly like a roller-coaster, with its highs and lows. However on the finish, the highs overpowered the lows. Simply once I was about to surrender on the book, the book gave me great tales with great plots and most significantly –good turning factors. Not less than for what I felt was nice, I might suggest the book for some mild reading.
