Spanning a range of locales, time periods, themes, and styles, no two stories here are alike. Told subtly and with empathy, the stories are multifaceted and multilayered and explore a wide range of subjects, such as the following:
• The complex emotions of a growing-up boy as he observes a young woman's bright life being blighted by her jealous sister.
• Innocent children watch uncomprehendingly the misfortunes of a woman whom they love. She is an unintended victim of her feudal master's machinations.
• The unconventional but abiding love of two girls for each other, with the witness to their lives having issues of her own.
• Age, greed, and time ruining a once-beautiful house and its proud owner
• The delusional aspirations of a woman and her bewildering inner world.
• An ageing woman seeing herself and the life spent in the mirror of modernity and seeking change.
• An endearing story of a child-bride of earlier times.
• A young woman overcoming induced prejudices and rediscovering the preciousness of a once-spurned relationship.

The stories infuse newness into many enduring and vast themes, like relationships, prejudices, a judgmental society, of changing conventions, and in general, of life as it goes on.
