     Interesting Bouquet of 15 Stories 7 December, 2013 On

    Book Review: The Vigil and Other Stories By Gita V Reddy: Interesting Bouquet of 15 Stories

    The Vigil and Other Stories by Gita V. Reddy is an interesting read of collection of 15 stories. All the stories are thought provoking, intriguing and self-questioning. After each story I had to give a gap to think about it and reach to a logical conclusion that almost matched with the manner story was concluded in the book. Stories are connected to each person’s life and hence it seems so natural and interesting to read each story.

    The Vigil is a story about women entrepreneurship and the lifestyle that revolves around them at this level. Naina is one of the top position holders in a company who gets pregnant while a critical deal is happening in her company. The story intervenes with her career and personal life where she gets totally engrossed about her career and forgets one of the most important phases of motherhood. A small incident strikes her on this missing part of her life and how she gets back on her track of becoming cautious about her about to be born child.

    Mr Krishnan is another good story about a man who goes into short attacks of heartache. It has been told in a quite humorous style about his old car and how he manages his life beyond certain shortfalls of his life. Sitas’ Lives is yet another interesting story based on Hindu Mythological – Ramayana – on what pain Sita passes through after Lord Ram gets her recovered from Lanka’s King Ravan.

    Overall, all stories are quite different thematically and entirely different from each other in The Vigil and Other Stories by Gita V. Reddy. A must read for all readers interested in short stories.
