My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I am a fan of Ravish Kumar of NDTV prime time fame.

I bought this book from Amazon purely based on his name.

These are called laprek i.e. Laghu prem Katha. One page stories set in Delhi.

I read the stories and didn't like them much. They have no plot except some names of Delhi's localities.

Maybe i am not able to understand the context or the hidden message.

Still didn't work for me.


Laprek (Short Love Story) Is a highly ambitious, experimental Nano format of story writing. Originated at digital platform of Facebook, the famous face of TV news, anchor Ravish Kumar has started writing micro fiction in a limited space of Facebook and twitter. The politics of our times figures as Metaphor in the loving exchange between characters. Laprek is a story of Love in cities. It is a story of Cities in love.

रेम हम सबको बेहतर शहरी बनाता है। हम शहर के हर अनजान कोनों का सम्मान करने लगते हैं। उन कोनों में ज़िंदगी भर देते हैं... आप तभी एक शहर को नए सिरे से खोजते हैं जब प्रेम में होते हैं... और प्रेम में होना सिर्फ हाथ थामने का बहाना ढूँढना नहीं होता। दो लोगों के उस स्पेस में बहुत कुछ टकराता रहता है। 'लप्रेक' उसी कशिश और टकराहट की पैदाइश है।
