These delightful stories capture the very essence of India. These stories are set in both the rustic setting of laid back villages, where time has almost stopped, to the modern settings of cities, where everyone is in a hurry to reach somewhere, yesterday. Simple stories, simple ideas, and simple thoughts remind one of the simple life that once existed and is now more and more getting lost as we are drawn inexorably into the speedy web of things. Some of the stories are inspired by folk tales of India and others by simple observations that the author has seen and felt. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Claire Heffron.
