Book blurb:
A man is blackmailed for a past he never had. An unrequited love story binds two lovers. A man waits for his lover, only to be killed at her hands. A girl takes back her life from her tormentor. From the bestselling authors of the peacock feather comes another delightful offering, ticklish affair. This collection of short stories has all the ingredients of an unputdownable book. Taken from the daily rigmarole of ordinary life, The stories are given extraordinary twists and turns, leading to fascinating climaxes. The dark undertone of ‘blackmail’, the power of belief in ‘Spark of the divine’, the forbidden romance in ‘ticklish affair’ or the eternal power of love in ‘rickshaw faridabadi’, this collection of stories is sure to move readers to tears of sadness and joy at the same time.

My review:

“A Ticklish Affair” is a collection of 10 short stories and almost all of them are adapted into movies among which few are award-winning. ‘Rickshaw Faridabad’ was one of my favorites. The book is an amalgamation of love, hatred, heartbreak, corruption, smuggling, vengeance, hope and dignity. Each story is engaging and quirky and some of them will give you the ‘wow’ moments at the end of the read. The narrative style used by the author is simple yet elegant. You can definitely go for this book if you want a short and light read.

Thanks to @rupa_publications for the #gifted copy.🌻
