The Dark Side of Light, Sanil Sachar’s second book, promises a unique literary experience for readers, with its combination of short stories, poems and plays, vignettes of romance, comedy, murder, mystery and much more.
Offering a diverse pick, Sanil seamlessly combines the rhythm of poetry, the allure of storytelling and the realism of theatre to create an enriching and vivid experience. Some pieces transport you to a different world, while others allude to everyday experiences. Set in the year 2034, ‘Members Only’ takes you inside India’s first strip club and asks existential questions about a person’s identity, through the story of a young man who oscillates between love and lust. ‘Painted Red’ is about a brother dealing with the loss of a sibling and brings alive basic human emotions like wrath and vengeance. Navigating through an array of everyday emotions, ‘Dinner with the Turners’ is a laugh riot that peeps into the life of a hopeless young wanderer trying to find his identity in a foreign land. ‘I’ll Be There One Day’ is a short and powerful story about belonging, while mystery and wavering thoughts dominate ‘The Conditioned Air’.
Racy and pulsating, The Dark Side of Light, is a celebration of the coming together of three different literary forms, with their distinct flavours intact.
