The dread of loneliness is greater than the fear of bondage.

“Still loved...Still missed! The myriad hues of souls” is a collection of 14 short stories and a poem. Each of these short stories delves deep into the complexities of love, misery and a sense of loss. Not just people, even inanimate objects have stories to tell; stories that make you introspect, revive old memories, stories that touch your soul.

Each story explores a different emotion but the theme of melancholy and of having love

This is a set of 14 short stories and a poem. The stories are the short - short story variety – averaging 3 pages or so, except for a few exceptions. With these it is important the theme is strong as you cannot develop the characters with depth. This book does that well, and each of the stories has a nice theme reflecting largely on life and nature.

There is an undercurrent of philosophical exploration in all the short stories. The first story is about a sepal and it’s selfless nurturing of the

Still Love...Still Missed by Mridula is a heart-wrenching tale consists of different types of emotions. The dark blue cover page makes me like it even more because of its austerity. The book comprises a few short stories, and one poem based on love happened under the lavender tree.

Every story has different sentiments, but I feel sadness in common. The author is a skillful story-teller. She knows when and where to put a twist. The plot does not only show human POV, but animals, plants, and non-l

It's a collection of 14 short stories and one poetry named "Love Under The Lavender Tree". The stories are so vividly portraying different stands of emotions. Each story has so much meaning packed as densely as possible. Some works are an commentary on human nature.Language used here is simple and easy to understand.

I love most of the stories in this book especially Bluebells in the woods, which shows the innocence of the kid. Some stories makes you cry for a moment.

The prime mention is to be given to the style of narration. It is quite palpable and engaging. Author has an inclination towards nature. Most of the stories including the title story are about inhuman or non living things but the author has succeeded in making them the characters and successfully connected the readers with them.

This is a collection of short stories and a poem by Mridula. What is special about this book is it features the stories which aren't usual. When I say this, I mean it. There were 14 short stories and a poem and each one differs from one another in terms of emotions, message it wanted to convey and the style/appeal quotient.



This would be loved by the readers who seeks a change in the pattern of the stories, most of the times. The stories revolves around Sepal, a Dog, a Soul, a Spider, break up to

Bleak, Dark, and introspective, "Still Loved...Still Missed! The myriad hues of souls" by Dr. Mridula, is pastiche of emotions, expressed in a refreshingly novel manner. A reflective Sepal brooding over its selfless services to a petal, a weakened and famished spider striking a treacherous conversation with an unsuspecting bee, and a woman with an inveterate obsession for both the spectacle of the sky and the surge of flight are some of the stories that contrive to weave an interesting web of pa ...more

With "Still Loved...Still Missed! : The Myriad Hues of Souls", Mridula has created a collection of short stories and a poem on love and loss.

Mridula presents memorable stories which are intriguing and offer food for thought at the same time. The stories may be sad, and even make you cry - but they give you the opportunity to reconsi

The cover is so beautiful to see. It has that Royal Classic Look which every reader wishes to keep in his/ her collection.

The title may seem very positive. But most of the Stories talk about the Dark side of Life. This is one of its kind type of novel.

The blurb talks about some intriguing question about life, which inspires a reader to pick this novel.

Emotions being the major backdrop of the stories and the poems which are presented in this lovely book. Everybody has a home team: It’s the people you call when you get a flat tire or when something terrible happens. It’s the people who, near or far, know everything that’s wrong with you and love you anyways. These are the ones who tell you their secrets, who get themselves a glass of water without asking when they’re at your house. These are the people who cry when you cry. These are your peopl ...more

Still Loved...Still Missed is one of those very unconventional books that you may come across once in your life. It's quite surprising to know that this is the début work by the author, and I loved it dearly. Though the verse was nice in its crude way, the prose is what would occupy your attention greatly.

Non-living objects or inanimate things can be our best teachers. In our daily lives, we are so busy with all the race among all the moving things (including human being) going on around us, we rarely see what a simple coracle, our dreams, a flower or broken crayons can teach us. However, this book has brought many such things to life.
