Is Mukam Tak Narendra Nagdev - HARPERCOLLINS
A dying man signs a contract with a stranger to come and sit beside him each day till he’s alive. The faceless Roshanlal begins to get an identity of his own when he chances upon a torn rashan card, the pieces of which come together in mysterious ways. A rich landlord’s son loses his mind every full moon, even as his subjects sit around discussing the famine that has struck their village. A man approaches a psychiatrist with a strange request: he wants to have a split-personality. A man follows his sister every night as she sleepwalks around the village. Here’s a collection that takes you by surprise and puts you on the edge with stories about ordinary people who are thrown into very unusual, almost dark and extraordinary situations.
Narendra Nagdev is an architect by profession. He is also a painter and sculptor who has been writing stories for over thirty years now. Tamashbeen, Usi Naav Se and Waapasi Ke Nakhoon are some of his collections of stories.
