From the shortest story, that is ‘Knowing Jajima’ to an exquisite story that is elaborately charactered ‘Misty Moments’, the reading takes you through a series of assorted emotions that have precisely carved in its required place and thus …depicted in the characters. Besides the story and the title itself, I actually grew fondness towards a few characters …Moni of Misty Moments, Kaku of Conjugal Bliss, Monisha and her tryst with the Mumbai Monsoons, that had the rained aroma of the wet mud breathe again into the lives of Rajdeep and his wife, or that unaccountable promise of Kasturi’s little son to his Jajima and a few more not mentioned here…they all were my co-travellers in the journey of reading through the ‘Nesting of Thoughts’

The earthiness and nativity in the stories, the deception and the intensity of gratitude and loyalty, the weaving of the contemporary and regional lifestyles as a backdrop of the storyline, the fledgleing and the evolving relationships have all been hatched and the characters brought out in the story with such vividness which makes the reader sail through the imagery effortlessly
