This is a electronic version of what has been published earlier by a reputed publishing house in India.
Shrikant Murthy is an accomplished orator and writer with two books to his name and two more books in the line.
This book is a collection of eight short stories written in simple lucid language that makes it a good read on a weekend or during a train journey. Below is a sneak peak into what lies inside:
Hurricane from the Hell - A girl runs away from home and is subsequently kept in a Remand Home for safe custody. The police, back home, arrest her father on charges of murder and put him behind the bars! A beautiful story is spun by the conspirators and the case passionately argued before the judge. Is the father proved guilty? Where did the girl go and how did she return? Did she return just in time? The questions are many and the answers thrilling.
ChaCha's Cynosure - Two brothers run away from home together and separate. They meet thirty years later. Only once! One reaches Bombay and other reaches Sri Lanka. This is the story of one of them, his survival, his fate and his luck.
Middle of the Bridge - Middle of the Night - The lender and the borrower arguing on the middle of a bridge-middle of the night over a few hundred bucks. An ideal scene for crime. Who survives? How? Is he caught?
Five more stories each one better than the other.
