Saying a lot with fewer words is a talent that only a handful of writers are blessed with. That is why maybe, there is a large audience for short stories than long novels.

In this post, I share about a book that has ten beautiful short stories about the many emotions that we humans go through in life.
You might not have heard about it, which is why I am sharing it.Continue reading “Best Collection of Short Stories- ‘Souled’ Out by Tahira Kashyap”

I am a 31-year-old with the mind of a 20 year old and world experience of a 10-year-old. I am lagging behind in almost everything. I was 1 year late to join school (this is a long story, but still).
