The forties is a dangerous age. An age, where you are forced to take your place in the audience knowing that you would never join the ones on the stage under the limelight, though everything in your being cries to be there, shining away. Yet, one's fate under the stars is to reconcile oneself to being just the audience, to comprehend one's place in the grand drama, to stifle childhood dreams,

Is Anika in love with Ajay or Anil? Is Anika faking a loss of memory? Does Anil know about Ajay? Does Anil truly love Anika or is just after her money? Has Ajay gotten over Anika? Who stands to gain if Anika dies? Jeet is seething with anger at being left penniless. Is he playing a lone hand? Are old Ayahs and stepmothers to be trusted? Why would someone want to kill Anil? Is Inspector Kumar to be trusted with the case though he loves Anika? But then, everyone loves Anika… Or, do they? As you enter into the world of Anika, Anil, Ajay, Jeet, Kajal, ‘Yah, Kailash and Vimala, the misty hills, and hot steaming pot of tea brewing away… you realize all it takes is a little bit of poison added ever so easily, to kill someone gently with love.

Description: How is one lovely moment different from another, except by the quality of savouring? This is a book of simple every day stories told with an honesty and simplicity that that would move the readers to think, smile, savour and fall in love with life and all its little moments all over again. The short stories in “A Thick Fat Finger and other stories” depict everyday moments in the lives of a variety of people, some contemporary, many not. Touching, thought provoking, whimsical and lyrical, these stories offer a fresh perspective on people and events that often go unrecorded, and while the stories themselves deal with a variety of people and situations, the reader is presented with a certain commonality of perspective through them

“Life is a little like getting on a bus with loads of passengers who are already on when you get on. A bus to nowhere but going with absolute certainty to nowhere or so it seems to you. And, you somehow secure a seat and think as long as you sit quietly, you might be allowed to stay till the destination, whatever it may be. You wonder if you could buy a more secure seat if you become the life and soul of the bus, since then nobody will want you to get off. So, you try.

There are people you like on the bus, some you cannot bear to be around with. People keep getting on. The bus is overcrowded. You watch some who gracefully get down, some who literally jump off the running bus and others who are abruptly forced off the bus. You feel sorry for those who have been forced off, happy you are still there. You must be special then for that privilege.

You sit there thinking if you are quiet and decent, and minding your business or counting your beads, you should be ok, not realising that you coul

“Be very very very gentle with yourself. The world is very very very hard on you”
Srividya Srinivasan

“Of all the deep longings, this ache for missing intimacy, cuts through sharply, like a scream in a silent room, like the last gasping breath under a stifling mask, like the huge lump in the throat that one is unable to swallow. This deep ache to be held, to know touch both the casual and intense variety, to catch an eye in answering laughter, to merge into oneness, to sing through existence in resonance with another, to simply be in deep love in openness. to live and die in intimacy and vulnerability in a loved one's arms. And, you ache alone...”

“He could not take his eyes off her. Would she recognise him? Were their destinies linked this time? He had begged them to allow him this last chance. His seventh attempt. If he failed, their destinies would be severed forever.”
Srividya Srinivasan

“She did not care what a ludicrous picture she might be painting, a fat happy old lady in her night gown, swinging on a small little swing in the dead of the night.”
Srividya Srinivasan

“They prised open the door in the morning. The beatific expression on his face was exactly what one would find in a temple deity or the just dead - an unsmiling smile. The absurdity and humour was there if one could just see it, the question and answer staring one in the face”
Srividya Srinivasan, A Thick Fat Finger and other Stories

“The nights and days had merged, trapped in that little house held captive by a stubborn old woman.”
Srividya Srinivasan

“May every man find the softest and most fragile expression of his personality with the right woman who would treasure and honour the beauty of his femininity and not misuse it and may all women find empowering and supportive men who would exult in her self expression and success without fear of being overshadowed by the power of her masculinity and in that beautiful new world, shall we enter as partners, equal and empowering, supporting and caring, vulnerable and strong.”
