Solitude Revisited is a confession, a realization and the musings of a pensive young heart.

There are a million stories around us, but few are told. This book is about those invisible souls you encounter everyday, but never care to observe. Sometimes, the eyes need to look further than just what they can fathom, the heart needs to seek an anecdote and the mind needs to frame a memoir for the soul – to survive the vastness reality throws at it. That’s where fiction steps in, presenting an alternative universe for the mind to thrive in, so it may preserve its individuality and brood over its reflections. Thoughts demand to be contemplated and preserved just like history, for they tell infinite stories no sane mind can perceive.

Solitude Revisited is all but real; it’s a confidante and a confession, an artist and his muse, a whisper and a madman. Listen to it and you may find yourself, listen to yourself and you may find it.

Review :

SOLITUDE REVISITED – a collection of short stories which portrays how SOLITUDE has influenced the life of people. The heart warming stories leaves an impact in the readers mind and the author has very well carved the words to leave an everlasting impact. The characters are shaped to utmost Perfection which makes some of the characters like Zora, Arundhathi, Sumi, Veronica etc, to remain close to the readers heart. The usage of short poems in the middle of the heart drenching stories recieves an applause as it apts well with the plot. Every stories are relatable to our present life and it also makes us to question the purpose of our existence. The story which is still close to my heart are Zora- which portrays the life of a woman who changed her personality for the world fame but eventually when she tried to get back to her ownself,Nancy, she realised that the past cannot be lived again and she has failed to live her life abruptly. Also it portrays the mixed emotions of human feelings like love, hate, death, life, happiness, bad etc.

Every people around us are fighting a battle which we hardly know and this book is a collection of those struggles which every person needs to know. The title and the cover perfectly suits the plot of the book. The language used in the book is easy and elegant. Also it helps to maintain coherence throughout the book. Yes, this is one of those books which will stir out your emotions and pierce your heart.
