My favourites from the lot are Sequins by Sarita Rao Rayachoti, Hemingway by Sandeep Narayan, The Broken Glass by Ramya Srinivasan, Come lie down beside me by Aakshat Sinha, Slap by Vijayalakshmi Sridhar and Never Again by Vandana Jena. I learned a lot from these five stories as a writer. As a reader, each of these stories stole my heart with their evocative setting, POV, characterization of the protagonist, seamless flow of the narrative or lyrical prose. As a collection, the stories segue together, all of them evoking the theme of Kintsugi — some gold to fill out the hollow space, for a fleeting moment or for what seems like an eternity.
Disclaimer: I am a co-author and have contributed the story Snow Days to this anthology. Even if I weren't a part of this beautiful book as a contributor, I sure would have cherished this as a reader. The lovely stories strung together in this anthology have soothed me and moved me. I hope others also give them a try.
The book has a great collection of 13 short stories with each author trying to explain the Kintsugi concept with a story.
I liked most of the stories, some I liked better than the other. My personal favourite is “The Broken Glass” by Ramya Srinivasan. Ramya illustrates the concept of Kintsugi by using a major personal tragedy to repair and restart life. After all, it is up to us to look at the broken object or life and decide to repair it or leave it in its broken state. Another story I loved is Strangers. Kinshuk Gupta starts off differently and makes a great point at the end. Enjoyed the book!
