Stallion of the Sun and Other StoriesStallion of the Sun and Other Stories by U.R. Ananthamurthy
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The book is a set of short stories by the author. Most stories reflect rural life. Although the book is based on the life of the author that he experienced in rural areas it is very much visible in the urban cities too.

A lot of it reflects the rebellion of the author to the orthodox beliefs and practices that exist in rural India. Many of the stories involve women and how their life becomes a torture after the death of their husband. It makes one think is sati better than this kind of life.

Some of the stories are very touching. Worth a good read.
