Do you like stories about life, death, and human behaviour, not in a frightening way but with a twist? Stories that entertain and enlighten, that leave you with a sultry smile about the comic, human side of tragic situations?

Welcome to Kaleidoscope: Short Stories of Many Hues.

This book contains twenty-two stories which will haunt you, tingle your spine, provoke thought and, often, bring a smile. In this collection, you will find stories like these:
• A woman on her deathbed in Coma can hear things around her without anyone else knowing it and finds her new world comically fascinating.
• At a conference of Bacteria, one of the species raises the often-debated topic in Gut Feeling; Does the Human really exist?

• Find out what happens when a son realises that the body of his father who died in the pandemic is lost in The Funeral.
• A 50th Wedding Anniversary reveals more secrets than it hides, but can the old, happily married couple handle them?
• In Confession, find out what happens when long lost Parikshit Sharma returns home to visit his dying mother who can't move or speak one last time.
• A young woman not willing to settle for anyone less than a Soulmate in marriage fi-nally finds one, or does she?
• When a corporate manager Robin is asked by his colleague to Help someone, he thinks he does provide it, or does he?
• A successful industrialist looks forward to his felicitation at his batch Reunion, but is it really something worth looking forward to?
• Everyone loves the caretaker of terminal patients, but what exactly are they grateful for? A medical student finds out in Grace Ayah.

About the Author

Ranjit Kulkarni is an author with a penchant for portraying characters from the real world and weaving stories around their apparently mundane lives.

Born and brought up in Mumbai, Kulkarni spent his childhood in the environs of urban, middle-class India. As an adult, he’s travelled the world, exploring the cityscapes of America, getting lost in the natural beauty of Europe, and absorbing the tastes and sounds of Asia.

With his constant knack for observation and a deep-seated fondness of reflection, he loves crafting sensitive tales that entertain and provoke thought. When not writing, Kulkarni loves reading and going on trips with his wife and now adult son.
