Stories in a Satchel

Author: Shyamala Shanmugasundaram

Simply stating, this is an out of the box kind of story, rather a collection of stories.

A young man Tanna who is soon to be married stumbles upon an old satchel belonging to his late postman father. It contains undelivered letters dated ten years ago. He decides to post them presumably in order to get a sense of closure for his mother…. and himself though he despises his father.

However he doesn’t have a clue about the storm triggered in each of the recipients’ lives. What happens when the letters arrive a decade later in each of the 26 people’s lives? Would their lives been better or worse? That is in fact what the story all about. Simple write up but drives deep into your heart.

Coming from Ms Shyamala who happens to be prize winning Children’s author, this is a must read.

Available on Amazon.
