The Book
This book is a collection of seven short stories. All based on South Indian NRIs settled in the United States and UK.
Rating
Green - the stories in this book are brilliant in many ways. Something that rarely happens. But what sets this book apart from any other is the way in which the scenarios have been approached. While the stories themselves may be quite interesting, this book is about the thought-process and feelings of the characters. 

The situations/occurrences are only catalysts which affect the above and lend immense depth to the stories. It would take you hardly any time to go through a story but by the time you are through, you'd know the characters and the scenarios inside out. That is the beauty of this book.

Finally, as Arthur Golden (the author of Memoirs of a Geisha) put it, "Only the finest writers can craft short stories with the richness of a novel, and that is precisely what Rishi Reddi has done... exceptionally."
