My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A nice set of short stories which bring out the details and idiosyncrasies of Kerala and Keralites. Not all the stories are very good but overall the book works well.

Many of the stories are about the impact of floods on the normal life of the farmers and to appreciate it read the foreword which sets the background for the stories, unless you are familiar with farming in Kerala.

The stories are based on the caste system, the generation gap, the apathy, the traditions and many other facets of Kerala.

A good read.
