Aripan and Other Stories

This is a collection of short stories set in a variety of places, including India and Egypt, with characters who live between cultures and struggle to fulfill their desires in a changing, unstable world, where love takes on many different meanings.


With a series of visible truths purported to the challenging themes of longing, love and loss, the fictional stories are in my book, essential for a more humane understanding on the human condition. Aripan and other Stories, hold tales from the North of India, Cairo and the US. All mingle together threading trails of sharp poignancy and that nervous expectation of an unseen tragedy, that a reader is led to believe, may appear from anywhere around the corner at sudden notice, in an unsuspecting character’s everyday life.
