Once Upon a Time

release date: Feb 10, 2016
Once Upon a Time
First novel from an award-winning writer Brinda is born in a traditional joint family, but behind the veneer of normalcy lurks an enigmatic life. She has detailed memory of things that happened before her birth. Physical contact with her heals the sick, the rotten and the corrupt. Brutalised repeatedly, she only becomes more beautiful and remains inviolate, unable to achieve physical intimacy even with the man she loves. There comes a time when she is arrested without any charges and moved from prison to prison. But in a world where time and history are as fluid as her memory, she stays radiantly young while those around her age and decay. Both as witness and victim, she lives through the horrors of a society sliding into superstition and intolerance. Ultimately, she is subjected to a farcical trial where every aspect of her past is presented to the court in a dark, new light before a tragic conclusion. Once Upon a Time is Ashok Srinivasan's powerful debut novel and the successor to his prize-winning collection of short stories, Book of Common Signs. A multi-layered fairy tale for adults that comes close to some of the harshest cruelties of our times, it reconfirms the arrival of an important new writer on India's literary firmament.

Book Of Common Signs
Winner, 'Hindu Literary Prize 2014' A unique collection of short stories on life, relationships and the human conditionLyrical, enigmatic, moving, this is a collection of short stories that traverse topics such as patricide, incest, betrayal, delusions, amnesia. Life being a shapeless thing of borrowed bits and stolen voices, it is only stories that give it form. These tales grow out of a tangle of relationships and crystallize at moments of intensity when one is not conscious of oneself but is blithe as in childhood, entranced as at moments of sexual gratification or lost in prayer.

FRIENDS FOREVER Or LoL
A Reader's story rather a Writer's story !!!Based on some reality, this had been written with the blend of fiction & cooked up with a lot of philosophies added in every chapters.Unlike all the novels, this story doesn't have any character names as it revolves around a Man & Woman just referred without any names as "He" & "She"."She" is the ambitious, intelligent, well socialized, bold enough & lonely independent woman who have got the guts to lead her life alone. Even though one have got everything, the Human mind searches & will be longing for the only thing they don't possess which is even the hard truth of the Human nature of dissatisfaction. "He" too is just one among those normal Human beings.This is not something new yet it's something happened or happening in most of our lives & you may need to read the story to get the real meaning of LoL in the title of this story.Were they meant to be "Friends Forever" or she gave him a "LoL"???Have a pleasant experience !!!
