About the Book:Wise & Otherwise A Salute To Life

Wise and Otherwise: A Salute to Life is a collection of 51 stories inspired from the author's own experiences. She has travelled extensively within India, so the stories are centered on life in this region, with most of them placed in a rural setting. The book almost serves as the author's journal containing experiences that have had an impact on her. Wise and Otherwise paints a picture of a realistic India, with its imperfections. The book takes you through the value attached to moral values. Showing you how various types of people behave under certain circumstances, the book gives you an opportunity to mull over the state of the country's society. Read about a son who leaves his father in an old age home, pretending he is a stranger and an opportunistic beggar you moves into an earthquake-affected area to exploit the aid given to victims. The book is a tribute to the homeless and poor in the nation. The revised edition of Wise and Otherwise was published in 2006 and is available in paperback.

Key Features:

  • The book features 51 brief accounts of the many layers of human nature.
  • The 232-page book covers an emotional spectrum that encompasses heartfelt kindness and harsh cruelty.
