OTHER DAYS , "A novel with a difference. Minimalist in approach, it is a playground for a subject seldom addressed in our part of the world. The novel pays special attention to the actual workings of social organization. With assured authenticity and delicate intimacy, characters are drawn to interact with shadows, which admit of much symbolic significance. Destinations are pursued with disastrous outcomes, yet compassion reigns and quiet dignity comes out unscathed." Amin Mughal
