In this anthology, you will find plays, poems and short stories with genres of Comedy, Drama, Psychological, Social, War and Thriller. I have used some of the intriguing plot devices for short stories like Every Frame is a Painting and One Shot with a non-linear structure which keeps the plot moving and simultaneously two or three incidents happen to build up for the final moment of the story.
Every Frame is a Painting is a story where a wife goes through a loss after losing her husband and the inner turmoil of her breaks her mentally.
One Shot is a thriller which is broken into three parts – Assassination, Verdict and Execution. It explains the assassination of a leader with consequences faced by the protagonist who himself questions and understands that there is nothing good or bad and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
The Hand of Fate, The Insect Pendent and Leap of Faith stories are psychological drama where the protagonist expresses the guilt or their negative thought about society with a sudden twist of macabre feel.
Death of a Blackmailer and The Justifiable Probability falls in the thriller genre with its initial set-up, conflict and resolution and it is a fun read. I really want to extend the stories in a novella format.
I actually had a fun time while writing the plays as I love dialogues and which you will notice and relate in the plays like The Official Dilemma is about the current corporate culture how senior people treats the newcomers or The Communedy (Communication Comedy Drama) where the students face problems during their interviews and has hilarious outcome during the process. For the play, Devil’s Last Breath, gives a poignant view point both the Almighty and Devil share which ultimately leads to their disappearance. The Usual Mornings and Few Mornings left are Sci-Fi plays which holds the theme, where the Creator dies in the hands of his own creation. Point of No Return is a thriller play in which both the protagonists are lonely and trying catch up with their old time. The Perfect Heir is about the betrayal of trust of the apprentice by the person whom he always believed in. The Final Wish is the dramatization of W.W Jacobs, “The Monkey’s Paw” which is a psychological horror thriller with a bleak ending.
The poems are written on the context of a youth’s point of view of the world towards society, suffering, joblessness and his anger. He cries as he wants equality in the system, he wants to help everyone but unfortunately he is unable to do that.
This is my first collection, I would love to write more and share the world with stories, as there are 7.7 Billion people in the world and therefore 7.7 billion opportunities to tell a story whether in book or in a big screen.
