Any piece of literary creation catches the imagination of the readers by virtue of its title. It gives an idea of how things are going to unfold and hence it turns out to be the index of the primary concerns of that creation. Coming to Sujay Malik’s Different Beads of the Same String, there has been no exception. Right from the cover you tend to get a hang of what’s coming your way and in a way the author never disappoints.
Sujay Malik – a CA turned into an author makes his debut with Different Beads of the Same String. Now, a reader might have found it a little difficult to connect. After all, a person who is so good in calculations, how can that guy pen down a narration on different aspects of life! Well, you would be making a huge mistake if you have that notion about the author. Because as everyone says, “Don’t judge a book by its cover”. In this case do not judge the author by the profession he goes by for one from his collection of short stories might just resemble your own. So there is a touch of realism which is very much capable of grabbing the attention of a reader.
Talking about portraying different aspects of life in the form of short stories, Mr. Malik brings forward an array of characters in front of the reader. And the best part of it is that none of the characters seem to have originated from a fictitious frame of mind. Well, that might also make you think that you can predict what’s coming. And that’s where the craftiness of the author lies. Never ever can you predict the next step! So it not just keeps you glued to the text, it represents life in its purest form as well. Life as unpredictable as it is hence blossoms even more clearly.
Another important aspect of this anthology of short stories is its crisp nature. It hardly takes much time to get over with one but there is always an effect which will keep coming on to your mind. It will make you think; it will keep you guessing and there lies the success of Mr. Sujay Malik as the author.
So don’t waste your time. Visit your nearest bookstore and get hold of one copy until they run out of supply for you might have to regret if you miss out on this mini representation of life.
