STORIES ON PEOPLE, SOCIAL AND POLITICAL ISSUES It would have been better if Mr Shetty had mentioned the year in which these stories were written, as sometimes the reader is confused if a certain story is set in the pre or post independence era Also a little background on the story, as in one of the stories there are African soldiers in Goa mentioned, which puzzled me Likable stories were Bhiku s Diary, Transgression, Senhor Eusbio Builds His Dream Home and Antonio s Homecoming. A must read Immensely charming, quirky, and humorous My favourites are as follows 1 When an ass mounts a cow 2 Lord Vatobha and Aunt Radha3 The sign of ire4 At the shrine of Mary of the angels 5 Innocence Gem of a book for its simplicity and depiction of horrors of daily life with a sprinkling of innocence just like the state it depicts, a hard hitting book and not everyone s cup of tea but glad i bought it.
