"Truth is simple, but Dharma is subtle," says Bhishma in one of the thirty-three short stories in this collection. Each story throws brilliant light on certain fundamental human dilemmas and paradoxes. Some of the stories are very short, yet capable of stirring deep thoughts and intense emotive experiences in the reader. Many of the stories are taken from great epics and history. Quite a few are carved out of present day life. Whatever the source, the author has transmuted it into a fascinating literary experience. There are moments when the reader may feel being elevated to a higher spiritual plane. The stories probe "the endless human delusions," as one of the stories describes it.
