Favorite stories:
• Tina, by Diptee Raut
• The Murder, by Arunav Chaudhary
• Godliness, by Abhishek Mukherjee
• An Adoption, by Uttiya Roy

Points in favor:
+ All stories were interesting
+ Cover art, though it can be more vibrant
+ Editing was quite acceptable

Points against:
- Classification into genres doesn’t work as most stories don’t seem to fit the genre

A one-time read with some good stories.

Actual rating: 2.5 stars
