The author Dr. Vanitha Vaidialingam IRS, a former Senior Income Tax Official, has a penchant for writing books and short stories and has brought out some books already.

The book "Pedestals and Short Stories" is the first collection of such short stories, in which she has ingrained painstaking efforts to pen 9 stories, each of which is a gem of its own kind and takes one beautifully through the realms of life and people's reactions to such situations.
The author has blended her official, personal and spiritual experiences in real time, and brought forth these stories. The reader is bound to enjoy the lucidity, clarity of expression and the finest flow of English, making one to wander through it, as if he/she himself is part of the characters therein.
The author is not only very good at narrating small incidents so efficiently, but also made each story to culminate into giving out a moral and making the reader to feel as if this is actually happening somewhere to someone else.

The author has to be congratulated for her brilliant and excellent efforts in this direction. We fervently hope that the author will continue to bring out more such collections.
