In clear, understated prose, these short stories take us through the landscapes of Geneva, Paris, Moscow, Bhutan, Delhi....from twilight mountains to barren beaches, where everyday people find and lose their way in life quietly, almost by accident. Winter Evenings is a poignant ode to the human spirit, and to the moments and memories that define our lives.
"Rabindranath Tagore described his short stories as the life of Bengal seen through the window of his moving boat. This could as well be said about Navtej Sarna's stories.... a very welcome collection."
"..characters were incredibly interesting and there were certain moments when the characters are moulded through the vicissitudes of their everyday existence."
"crisp and fresh as a spring morning."
"Deeply moving stories, a fine tribute to the human spirit."
" Full of wit and humour and almost lazy charm"
"There is a languid charm in the manner in which Sarna writes - he grows on you, forcing you to marvel with him on life's many incongruities."
