Existences

Existences

Rs.450eBook: Rs.199

Existences is Shuvashree Chowdhury’s debut collection of short stories. It is a rendering of a young woman’s insights into human existences from a rich tapestry of social experiences in her own working life. The narratives in each short story are unique in their own way — each form a collage to help see with clarity the simple things that give meaning to our lives. They are as much about women, as they are about people, events and life experiences — all from the perspective of working women. Sensitive, analytical and empathetic in their approach and depiction of the nuances of human emotions — these portrayals do not aim to judge people, rather project them humanely and with an acceptance of the vagaries of human existences.

Fragments

Fragments

Rs.275eBook: Rs.199

Fragments is Shuvashree Chowdhury’s debut collection of poetry. It is an intuitive journey into various aspects of the human experience — love, passion, jealousy, joy, spirituality and death. The poems engage deeply with the world — turning each heartfelt moment in the hands like fragments of a broken mirror — to examine with keen intelligence, the light passing through the countless shards, towards self-realization. The poems convey insights with a perceptiveness that is at once brilliant and sumptuously lyrical, vivid and kaleidoscopic, in a language that is elegant. The poetic journey gradually transcends into a serene, spiritually uplifting zenith — weaving its way upstream through the rocky riverbed of the spirit — the soul quivering, often crushing emotional currents.
