Mixed Marriage And Other Stories - Meher Pestonji

Each story in Meher Pestonji's collection provides a deep insight into the life and experiences of the Parsi community in the melting pot of Mumbai. It is a compelling account of human values and frailties, mirrored by a city much changed with time, yet holding on steadfastly to a character and energy that is all its own. Raising contemporary issues like commercialisation, communalism, the isolation of an individual in the urban scenario, destitution and a general dilution of values once held dear, these stories meld fact and fiction with equal ease. Each story provides a progression from the previous one, pausing to take a breath at certain parts, changing forth with intensity and candour at others.
