The parting of the Strangers and Other Stories by Sattam Dasgupta is a collection of short stories about people, their realizations, and the games their minds play that invite all of us to discover the hidden angels and demons within.
Each and every story has its own importance, a different message. The author beautifully narrated each and every story. Each story had a different plot and is amazing in its own.
It has 16 different stories and each of them is wonderful. I liked all of them. Porcelain Fingers, Green tea in bone china, A teacher never retires and receding shoreline are my favourite stories.
Each story has a unique plot and will keep the reader hooked. I wish the stories could have been a little long. The narration of each story is gripping and engaging. The author has used different themes for each story which makes the stories apt and interesting.
Love, friendship, relationship, loss, and many other themes are used by the author. The author has wonderfully expressed each and every emotion which connects the reader to the book. There are drama and dialogues which makes the stories fascinating.
The language used by the author is simple and easy. the writing style of the author is apt and Lucid.
It’s a quick read with lots of emotions and interesting stories.

As an engineer sits across from his wife, Akansha, at an elegant restaurant, he waits for their guest —her co-worker, Sinjan. The engineer, whose favorite pastime is to observe and analyze the world around him, has no idea that his entire life is about to be thrown into turmoil. In a collection of sixteen short stories primarily set against the backdrop of urban India, a diverse group of characters each face the impact of unique circumstances on their lives, thoughts, and actions. It has been almost a year since a commuter first saw a bright-red car caught behind a truck in heavy traffic and waved the driver ahead of him. Now the two drivers frequently see each other on the road, and it is a ritual he eagerly looks forward to every evening. But does she? When the paths of two men —one an attendant and the other a businessman —cross in a Bangalore restaurant, Venkat and Rahul are each propelled back into the past in unique ways. Parting of the Strangers and Other Stories is a collection of short tales about people, their realizations, and the games their minds play that invite all of us to discover the hidden angels and demons within.
