Through shared emotions they connect us to others, and they enable us to understand ourselves and our place in the world. “This is a collection of stories whose haunting power rests on the authenticity and richness of the human experience that they convey. The 35 stories from 18 regions have their own rich cultural identities and distinct literary traditions. These ‘slice of life’ tales, selected from the short stories published in Pratibha India, the quarterly of Arts, Cultures and Literatures, over a period of two decades, are connecting the reader to the universal truths at the heart of that experience.They are the imaginationexpanding product of a mature writer at the height of his literary power.” Dr. Debjani Chatterjee, MBE FRSI, Sheffield, England Born and brought up in Ayodhya, Dr Sitesh Alok obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Prayagraj and Sangeet Visharad from Sangeet Mahavidyalaya, Pune, and shifted to Delhi to find his feet.

Yet he did not give up his dear-to-heart hobbies - music, literature, painting, etc. Started a quarterly of Indian Art, Culture and Literature, Pratibha India, in 1981, whereby he came to interact with the variety and richness of Indian regions and literatures.
