Kaleidoscopic Lives is a collection of 11 colourful short stories and these stories largely showcase situations from the lives of young contemporary middle-class urban Indians and often focuses on the theme of human bonding between strikingly different individuals.
Think about a unique person from your youth who you thought you always knew but who turned out later to be very different from what you expected.
Think about those different but interesting people who you came across from time to time.
Think about the connections you made with many of them, maybe for just for a fleeting moment. Think about those stories that you told for years thereafter about them.
Think about how those stories entertained people around you and made them smile, laugh or even cry.
Kaleidoscopic Lives is a book which brings you those stories – stories of common people who you can relate to and the little anecdotes from their lives. The story of the village thief and his transformation, the story of the enthusiastic waiter boy and the unlikely friendship he forges and the story of the eccentric 53 year old are all part of this ensemble collection that will transport you through the lives of such people in a small but memorable ride.
Sample Book Reviews from Readers (taken from Amazon.in http://tidy.ws/6uf5hH)
“After a very long time, I came across a good book which kept me hooked till the end. I got so engrossed after the first story, needless to say, every character came alive and I could feel each character which is an incredible effort on the author’s part. What makes it more interesting is the fact that each story is related to our life and the characters are the ones which we come across so often making it all the more real and at the end of each story there is a take away! The compilation is excellent, a must read for all ages. Kudos to the author Roji Abraham & may his book be an example to many more!” – Ben David, reader.
“Could not leave the book, till I reached the last page. The characters are drawn with a touch of own experience and imagination and connecting them is very easy. With some cosmopolitan and some semi urban stories, the author helps you draw the environment around the characters with so much ease. I could travel with him to Bangladesh, UK, Thailand. His narration is very simple and lucid. As his last story goes, its ‘A Book Worth Reading’.” – Achintya
“Excellent book for people who like reading short stories. It almost made me feel as if each one of us have these stories in our life which make some happy, funny, sad moments part of our life and we keep sharing these with our close ones. Roji, has written it beautifully to describe behavioral/ emotional changes that people exhibit in different situations/ roles.” – Kavita
