    I also like reading short stories. But I read only those which I easily find in newspaper or magazine 😄. I also have a Hindi app ‘Pratilipi’ for short stories. I am interested in reading ‘Letters from Kargil ‘ first from your list. Thank you for this 🙂

      Letters from Kargil is a great choice!

      I haven’t heard of Pratilipi. Thanks for sharing about it. Will check that out. If you have an Amazon Prime or a Kindle Unlimited membership, a couple of books on this list are available there.

    I have read Maus and Ghachar Ghochar, and really enjoyed reading them. Will surely keep a look for the rest of the books on your list.

    I was not a reading person until i have my own child. to help her reading i started reading and now i am in love with reading. even i am starting with short stories, some comic, humour and romantic ones (they don’t take much time ). Loved the title “Letters from Kargil” and i am moving to that now.

      That is great. One must read the genres one enjoys. I pick a light read or a romance for days when I cannot get into the heavy duty stuff.

    Ghachar Gochar and Poonachi have been on my TBR for the longest. But, now I am quite taken for Fox 8 by George Saunders after reading your post. Thanks for the list!

      Fox 8 is quite a find. I came across it on a Twitter discussion and cannot recommend it enough.

        Yeah seriously…after reading Pastoralia, I was so keen to read other writings by George Saunders but never found Fox 8.

    Hey Ritu! Like I said on Insta, I read 2 letters from Kargil and Undelivered letters. If time permits do check my take on the later one at blog. Ponaachi was much appreciated if I remember correct and it is in my TBR. I will surely check the rest especially Fox8.
