Book Review: A Symphony of Chance Encounters by Sayujya Sankar

A Symphony of Chance Encounters

Author: Sayujya Sankar
Publisher: Notion Press
Rating: 2.5/5

The sky takes on shades of orange during sunrise and sunset, the colour that gives you hope that the sun will set only to rise again.
~Ram Charan

Life is not simple as it comprises of different shades of joy, grief, pain, love, greed and lust. Just like the sunset marks the end of a day (either joyful or remorseful), the sunrise gives us the hope for a new beginning. ‘A Symphony of Chance Encounters’ is a collection of short stories and poems that reflect some of the very common emotions and help the readers realize what life is all about. Cherry picking t instances from lives of different people that can pervade through the soul and leave a lasting impression, the authoress has tried her level best to present a good collection on the platter. But owing to the evident variation in the language and several grammatical errors, the overall quality of the book loses points.

The cover of the book has been creatively designed; the blurb doesn’t give out much information though. Some of the stories seemed out of place; a more precise selection would have worked well.

Overall, the book offers an insightful experience altogether. I would not say that the book is a must read but instead, it is a light read.

Best wishes to the authoress!
