“The passing is technically brief. But, once you enter, it appears lengthy, sometimes unduly long that you may think there is no going back. You may feel crippled to move forward, and you may opt to become a part of the passing. You may start accomodating everything into your ‘self’, and in that process, you may forget your very objective…”

My Opinion

This book offers you fourteen short stories and a poem.

With “Still Loved…Still Missed! : The Myriad Hues of Souls”, Mridula has created a collection of short stories and a poem on love and loss. Each story is told from a distance, from an angle that triggers emotions, pain, and that can even be healing. Mridula presents memorable stories which are intriguing and offer food for thought at the same time. The stories may be sad, and even make you cry – but they give you the opportunity to reconsider your usual take on things.

This is a book for you if you like another take on loss, on life, and if you appreciate food for thought.
