• What does a flower teach us we often fail to see?
• “The belly is an ungrateful wretch.” Is it true?
• Ever wondered about the sparseness and illusions in life?
• Does death put an end to true love?
• Have all the ascetics won over their emotions?
With the power of simple language, this book transports the readers to a world scarcely thought of in our bustling lives. The allegories maintain an intense rhythm of life prompting the readers to perceive things from a unique angle.
Still Loved…Still Missed as the name suggests is book that made me fall in love with the stories and made me miss them just as much. This book of just mere 75 pages turned out to be one of the most heartwarming book I have read in a long time.
The stories cover the pain and anguish of almost all the creatures of our world that makes us realise how important it is to cherish all the living beings around us. It even covers various sensitive issues in our society but in a very charming way. Similarly, I really admire the fact that the author very fearlessly covers the negative
“The dread of loneliness is greater than the fear of bondage.”
The writing style seemed very mature due to which the content of the book did not seem aimless in nature. The minute I started reading the first story, I was tempted to jump on to other one which eventually made me finish this book in one sitting!
Overall Still Loved…Still Missed is actually a wholesome book that will fill all the voids that you have the minute you finish reading it! I suggest this book to those who are looking for a book that can refresh your mind as well as your soul. And the people who want to get into a habit of reading should really give these enriching short stories a chance to mesmerise them!
