    Excellent - thanks for this great lesson. I had no idea there was a type of cigarette called the beedi. These images add a fuller understanding to what is going on in the story. Now I have a new Indian storyteller to learn about. Yay!

    thanx tiffany. If u liked the work of Daruwalla, you will also find works of another noted Indian/Pakistani writer Khushwant Singh, interesting. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khushwant_Singh

    I really like how vividly the writer has described not only the human emotions but also the inanimate things like the Rann, the scorching Sun of dessert sky, beautiful village huts etc. The use of words of local language, words like bawal, tendu gives a kind of unpolished, rustic touch. Character sketches given in the story actually creates an image of that person in your head as you read it. I like the way the author has used a mixture of dialogue and passive voice. Well, these are just few of the things I personally like about the story. Do tell me how you feel about it, from the literary style to reader appeal anything ..……….
