The book describes the lives of people in the villages of Kerala and also those of Keralites who leave the villages and move to cities.Stories like Kuttiedathi , The deluge,Doors of heaven open and Insight covers topics like marriage, divorce, adultery, old ailing parents all of which describe the mindset of people with a Malayali touch.

I am a fan of short stories. At times, they end abruptly. And at times, they end definitively. When I spotted this book at Thiruvananthapuram airport, I simply grabbed it and continued turning pages at one go.

Atleast the language, it is translated in made it a lovely read. ...more

I have always loved MT sir's works. It always brought us back the nostalgic moments of childhood. Most of the characters were familiar to me. Though I hate tragic ending, I always his stories showed life, how our life goes beyond our planning. The main attraction of his stories are the relationships and the love. You can always feel the love between the characters and how society comes in between them ...more
