Description

Love, romance, thrill, devastation, intrigue and many more emotions are encountered as you flip the pages of this unique compilation of exaggerated
episodes of Suketu’s life. Five is a real near saga of nostalgia. The mother and her sacrifices, the tragedy of the lunatic cousin, the half expressed love story, roller coaster of Karans struggles and more.
The mixed platter of Suketu’s experiences thrills, mystifies, and stimulates the appetite of the reader for more.

The diverse stories of this book are enjoyable for their structure and their characters, and they are the fruit of Kapadia’s ability to observe the people around him. They are real people, and real lives, and for this reason their stories will live on for long and readers will enjoy this book many years from now.
The stories are also shot through with a sense of mystery and wonder about the human being and about the modern world. Kapadia extends to fiction the thinking of the early 20th-century writer Alexis Carrell, whom Kapadia has evidently read with great attention.

    As a writer, in his craft, Kapadia reminds one of the French short story writer Maupassant. Kapadia has the same ability to compress enormous detail and meaning into a few paragraphs. This is real skill and not many writers have it.

    The great Greek historian, biographer and observer of society Plutarch had a rich and fulfilling career in the Roman empire. However he chose to live in his hometown of Chaeronea, not in Rome. His reason was that he would make Chaeronea an even smaller place if he did not live in it. His presence brought dignity to his hometown. For Surat, Dilip Kapadia is such a man
