My Jiffies by Priyanka Sharma Kaintura is an exceptional book full of emotions and emphasises enough on reality. It is a collection where a reader has a glimpse of the writer’s beautiful imagination. The novel is not a traditional short story collection. I am surprised to find that out and really enjoyed this new form of collecting one’s writing.
The book is arrange in seven categories that includes Orations, Eclogues, Monologues and Dialogues, Stories, Pathos, Satire and Sarcasm, Life Aphorisms and Epigrams. The words in this book embrace her thoughts, feelings, knowledge she has attained and her personal experiences. Through aforementioned and various form of writings the author has made an effort not to adhere herself to only one theme. She talks about happiness, separations, questions mortality and death, and even is well-learned on Indian mythology.
I have my own favourites from her book which include Her Pointless Conquest, Are you Mollifying the Right Shiva, The Fort and Rain Mask. I recommend you to take a read of these. Her writing is appreciable and flawless. Her choice of words is sublime at times that fits the context and will have a strong and solid impression on a reader. It did on me. It is indeed a gateway to the author’s imagination.
This book possess a good amount of surprises and a reader will find them after few pages. I will recommend this book if you are looking for a short and a very different form of writing that is an appraisal in itself.
