A Storehouse of Tales: Contemporary Indian Women WritersIndia celebrating fifty years of independence offered to the audience a haunting remake of Vande Mataram. India entered the new millennium singing paens to information technology. India's writers from Rushdie to Roy spanned the diversity of a nation which refuses to be defined by any consistent image. A taste of this diversity is contained in A Storehouse of Tales. As changeable as the monsoon sky as exhilarating as a ride on a village swing as taut as the kite strings at Makar Sankranti as demanding of attention as the Ring Road traffic this anthology of stories captures today's assertions and yesterday's nostalgia.
