Enjoyable stories, endings could have been subtler

The author wants people to enjoy satirical short stories (which he feels had become a poor cousin of novels...an idea I reckon with). All the stories shared here are enjoyable,I read them all in one sitting. They were entertaining and most of them belonged to places I could identify. The behaviour of characters and protagonist is so believable that I wonder if they are actually real than fictional. Ending could have been subtler, but that's just me.

Ups and Downs

Few stories are really intriguing and few are just okay. However there are some interesting conversations between various characters which I liked the most.

Unique

Definitely, interesting and a sattire chiefly on the part of Delhi life that we label sophisiticated. It was a new experience, unlike Indian fiction writers usually writing novels in lines of either Chetan Bhagat or Amish Tripathi. Would like to read or hear more such stories...But, why isn't there a small pause between two stories or poems?!

Interesting stories

Loved the stories. We sh there was a definite gap between the stories.. it takes a moment to realise that one is over and a new one has started

Springy Aroma

Loved the plot that one can relate. Loved the narration. Sanjeev needs to write more of the short stories.
