Overview: Wise and Otherwise

Wise And Otherwise : A Salute To Life contains sketches of various people, across the length and breadth of the country. These stories are all based on the author's personal experiences, and it is a kaleidoscopic collection of human attitudes and character.The author, a teacher and social worker, has had close interactions with various sections of the society. As a sensitive observer of people and their characteristics, she has been able to bring to this collection a myriad of experiences and emotions that cuts across all barriers of class, religion, and location.Wise and Otherwise : A Salute to Life contains a wide-ranging collection of stories. A man dumps his own father in an old age home, disclaiming any relationship to him. He recalls his relationship quickly enough on his father's death to make sure of his inheritance.A young girl dotes on her little brother, only to be sold by him into prostitution, ironically on Rakhi day. A beggar goes to a region devastated by an earthquake, to pose as a victim and benefit from any relief package that have been designed for those affected by the disaster.Wise And Otherwise : A Salute To Life tells the story of a woman who does not fail,to express her gratitude even while in her death bed. There is the story of a young boy who fishes for crabs and makes a small amount each day, which supports his family. When asked what use that little amount would be to him, he says pragmatically that is better than nothing. A man in a tribal settlement teaches the author that there can be grace and dignity even in the acceptance of gifts, not just in the giving of them.
