I have always been very observant about whatever happens around us. A lot of my short stories and other forms of micro fiction over the years have always been based on what I have seen and what I feel may happen. The ability of humans to survive all odds and come up trumps is what keeps me going.
Each of the five stories in this e-book is based on my thoughts and experiences of the way humans survive in difficult situations.
There are so many of us who work late at night, don’t we? Haven’t we ever felt nervous on what could happen? A safari sounds like an experience of a lifetime. But what if things go awry? If you are on the way home and suddenly run into a tragedy happening around you, how would you react? Do you just run away? We all wait for that perfect holiday with our family. But what if the perfect holiday turns into a perfect nightmare?
The blurb goes like this:
An employee realizes that working late at night has its consequences. An IT professional pays the price of going to work on a holiday. A couple encounters the dark secrets of a wild safari. A loving family’s world turns upside down on a holiday to New York. A man heading home from work is suddenly in the midst of a tragedy not of his own making.
In these five tales, Aseem Rastogi brings forth our darkest and deepest fears out into the open. He explores the human emotions behind how each of us react in the face of adversity.
I am hopeful that each story would make each of you pause and think about how we all react to different situations in different ways.
