Anant Path Par - A Collection of taxing tales - Whoops!

Reviewed by Rajesh Prasad

Anant Path Par is a diligent collection of short stories. The stories pivot around a little boy who sells balloons and discovers the source of smile for his little sister; a lady breastfeeding a small child shows the delicate yet strong character of a mother; an ambulance driver takes a day off and switches off his phone only to witness the most horrific incident in his family that day; a thalassemia patient shuns life and prefers to live by painting her thoughts in a closed room; a father throws a lavish party for his kid and then discoversthe poignant realisation about the food that was wasted; a young boy meets with an accident and his parents decide something important; and a young labourer learns a tough lesson when he takes an unreasonable cut on an old labourer's hard-earned money taking advantage of the latter's circumstances; and many more …

The author's present creation "Anant Path Par" intends to bring to the notice of readers the importance and relevance of social, moral and family values through acts and messages conveyed by the protagonist and various characters.
