it was amazing
Read in April, 2009

This is a collection of short stories set in the same brilliantly realised future India as River of Gods. I'd already read "The Little Goddess", "The Djinn's Wife" and "Sanjeev and Robotwallah" in other collections and loved them, although I felt the third was weaker than the other two.
My favourite of the stories was "Vishnu and the Cat Circus", which provides an excellent timeline for the other stories and for River of Gods, as well as providing a lot of background information, including a lot more on the genetically engineered Brahmins (of whom the protagonist is one). A word of warning though - it does contain spoilers so read River of Gods first. Otherwise, this is a great collection. Fans of River of Gods will love it, and if anyone reads this who hasn't read River of Gods already, this will hopefully inspire them to get a copy.
