Within Minutes: Micro Stories
Examining human behaviour isn’t just for academics and medical professionals. As humans, we’re naturally fascinated by how we―and others ―experience the world around us in an attempt to understand ourselves.
What’s most important – your status in life, or your character?
How do modern women cope with living in a patriarchal society?
Why do children have a unique perception of the world?
What makes common people act differently in business settings or in relationships and friendships?
How did certain myths, superstitions, ideas about divinity, and small-town views of the world develop?
Comprised of 45 micro fictional stories, Within Minutes profoundly explores the words, hearts, and minds of a diverse range of men, women, and children in a bid to answer age-old questions and quell our endless curiosity.
If you want an escape from your workday, want to spend a little time learning about the cross-sections of Indian society to see where their hearts and minds lie, this collection offers an abundance of two to three-minute reads for you.
