“Urban Shots” from Paritosh Uttam mirrors the day-to-day life of a city dweller and gives us a good break from the run-of-the-mill fiction we get to read nowadays

Paritosh Uttam once again rocks, and this time the urban lifestyle is what that this ace author is concentrating upon. Rather than penning himself, this time the author goes for the mentor role for the budding aspirants, and compiles thirteen crispy yet touching works from the new talents in the writing circuit. “Urban Shots”, as the name implies, are centric with the city life style; and the characters that you will be coming across are someone whom you interact daily. Each of these fresh, vivid and deceptively simple stories focuses on an epiphany. The stories are set with the backdrop of our urban metros with their bright lights, sky rises, and glitzy malls, tenements, crowds and the chaos that comes with it. A woman tries to come to terms with loss of a lost baby; two strangers, a young man and a young woman, both with a love for Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment board the same aircraft; a woman ponders over giving a second chance to her cheating husband; a young man is in love with his apple pie loving best friend, who is set to marry through an arranged match; a chance meeting between two old lovers after 11 years; the memories of an old woman in love; an illiterate migrant from the village looking for her own kind of liberation; the longing of a married woman for another man; a child and his silent suffering mother and their financially strapped family; a couple once in love, frustrated with each other after getting married; love and relationships in the age of Twitter and fat free gelatos; the morning after for a couple in an adulterous relationship; a man running away from his own life in the city hoping to find salvation; a couple who decide to marry for reasons other than love and many more stories. Without any doubt, you can define “Urban Shots” as a collaborative effort, pulled together from writers of diverse backgrounds, who live in different parts of the country.
