What are you reading? Wednesday (6): Walks Through Life: Stories by Santhosh Komaraju ~ 9 beautiful short stories hiding powerful messages

This week I am reading Santhosh Komaraju's debut book of short stories, Walks Through Life: Stories. I loved the quirky cover that has a maze with foot prints going in different directions symbolising, in my opinion, the many choices we make that decide the paths we take in life leading to different results, some favourable, some not so favourable but all with learnings of their own.

This book has an engaging blend of magic, faith, life's conundrums and soul searching life's lessons. I am halfway through the book and have read four stories so far. Each better than the next one, it is hard to decide my favourite.

Checkout the Blurb:


Find that majestic mango, your problem will be solved—a mystic ordered an individual who asked for help.
My ax is my guru—declared a woodcutter.
Instead of preparing a plan to kill it, why can’t we offer help? —a villager questioned in the middle of the assembly.
I could not be relieved even after undertaking efforts to end my life—a scholar declared in public.
Can you be my mother?—a boy requested of a pretentious lady.
I wish I had more life to undo my past—a mischief-maker contemplated in his letter.
I would never relinquish them, even if I had to sacrifice my life—a young prince swore putting his life on the shore.
I was chained by limitations, yet I prevailed—a butcher made a victorious cry.
You climbed up the ladder. I did not. Who reached the top?—a brother questioned his sibling who cried for help.

Walks Through Life is a collection of stories in which each story reverberates the same principle of truth in its own unique ways. These are stories serving as plain reminders of the supreme learning that was handed over to us a long time ago.

  13. It's nice to read short stories once in awhile, rather than investing in a read that will take days or weeks. The cover is cool.
