Second Chances

by Rajratan

I decided to write this book when I was in the darkest phase of my life, when I was close to killing myself, I was failed, disappointed, misunderstood, unloved. Some people die because of these reasons. I hope this book will help them. Not everyone is lucky enough to change their lives the way they want. Not everyone has the freedom like you. Life gives you hurdles, it is upto you whether you sit and cry or fight with the situation to live the great life you are destined to live. This book is for parents, students, women, men, fathers & mothers. Till the time you realize what you have been doing wrong, it is too late. This book is to just push you a little towards your good life. The most important part of life is living, live happily.

Renunciation And Other Short Stories

by Dattaprasad Anil Thite-Bharadwaj

‘Renunciation and other short stories’ is a collection of his 11 short stories that recounts an abrupt end of a childhood friendship owing to the untimely death of one of the friends, a u-turn in the life of an infidel husband for self-cleansing, entry of happiness in an engineer’s life when he befriends three squirrel babies, helplessness of two persons to pacify the agony of a foreigner, two sequences of events when humanity goes beyond religious beliefs, a boy’s impatient wait to enjoy aromas of Saturdays, how a beggar woman feds other needy people and some subtle humour. In these stories, the author keenly observes his as well as the lives of people around him and then uses his imagination to interweave himself in them. This is the reason; some of the stories in this collection have the narrator as the first person singular. To put ourselves into others’ shoes though is a very complex process, yet he tries hard and thus without prejudice understands others’ experiences. People he mentions are the commonest without any so-called social glamour, yet have their own shares of deeply felt experiences.
