"SO FULL SO ALIVE", is a superb collection of true short stories, which reminds one of Guy de Mupassant. The stories are loaded with feelings, emotion, pathos, empathy and humour that tell of a rare courage and spirit of advernture. It is written in a a very easy and gripping style - gentle as the lady herself even when describing the extremely harsh realities of life. The story 'Celestial Experience', set in the serene, sublime and pristine environment of Arunachal Pradesh, stirs extra-sensual perceptions; 'She glided as an element of nature, ethereal, like ripples playing on the surface of clear water' in'Death For Jiliting'; and 'The Kaziranga Kings', stood there, displaying their long tusks, huge bodies swaying in self disciplined restraint. While the 'Stolen Bananas' and 'Maggo' touches the hidden areas of the mind; the 'Black Bear', 'Not to Be'; 'Bath Tub' and 'Lord Krishna in the Guest House', are hilarious. No one can restrain tears on reading 'Requiem in Blue'. Like her life, this book is indeed "SO FULL, SO ALIVE". One cannot put it down without completing the story. And, there are 69 of them.
