Scintillating Stories for ADULTS.
Fiction is an imaginative expression of truth; most incidents can be expressed as short stories in a civilized language that can provoke a debate that tends to induce the society to think and act to reform itself. Authors get under the skin of their characters and speak for them. Similarly, an advocate argues client’s case to show that the client’s actions are legitimate; actors repeat what the scriptwriter defines for them. Readers and listeners should step aside and reexamine the logic of these three classes critically and decide for themselves.
I am giving a brief idea of each story of this collection.
Revenge: Vanaja did not believe the story of the death of her sister Anita, as narrated by her brother-in-law Anil. Vanaja married him and discovered that he was a sex-maniac and that Sarita died due to marital rape. Vanaja cleverly punished him by reducing him to a lifelong humiliating condition.

Mutual consent: An accident revealed that Hari had also been suffering from BP and diabetes and that he had to be under lifelong medication, which was likely to reduce his sexual potency.
