A rush of kaleidoscopic images, the city of Bombay or Mumbai is best reflected in its vast crucible of communities, its bizarre experiences, stark contrasts, changing relationships and concerns, its urban rat race and dizzying new pace of life. Janhavi's collection of short stories, Window Seat, is set in this topical Indian city - a place that likes to believe that it is giving the rest of the world a run for its money.
Window Seat is a collection of 'rush hour stories' - tales that jostle, push and straddle all things that are uniquely Bombay, ranging from the stock market to Bollywood, the local estate agent, daily train commuters, ad agencies, the city nightlife, salons or beauty parlours, internet friendships, the '92 riots. These are short takes and everyday observations of a city and provide glimpses or windows into the lives of its people.
A collection of 30 short, short stories that may be read in the local train, at the airport or when stuck in traffic, on your way to work or during lunch hour, in the bathroom or at bedtime. Experience the stories for yourself. Relate to them.
