Modern Telugu Short Stories

I have been lately banging off the dust from my dad’s old books. Just finished reading Modern Telugu Short Stories. This book edited by V. Patanjali and A. Muralidhar is an anthology of 31 short stories written in Telugu during the 50s and 60s and translated into English. The published year of the book reads 1968. The stories explore the themes of society, work, love, passion, sadness, marriage, family, poverty, vices, self, nature, thinking, art etc. The flavour is mostly light and crisp. Some even have the RKN-ish old Mysore touch and some have the twisted ending.

Rating: 3/4 (Good read)
