MOCK, STALK & QUARREL
Mock, Stalk & Quarrel – a collection of satirical tales – emanated from a nationwide contest conducted by Readomania to identify powerful voices that can wage an ideological war against issues that matter, with Satire as their weapon. Twenty-nine voices – indulgent, tolerant, amusing and witty – form a part of this collection. Each narrative in this anthology is a silent scream, a way to remind the reader of the stark realities of our times, of the hollowness, the empty promises and the increasing nepotism, corruption, and banal priorities of the modern life. From domestic violence, to red-tapism, from reservation to religious fundamentalism, from scams to godmen, our authors have captured it all, creating stories that prick the conscience and challenge the powerful, gently ridicule absurdities and follies of fellow humans, not to enrage the reader but to bring on a wry smile. Eventually, they take lexical potshots at the well-heeled establishment that does not think twice before taking people for granted. Sprinkled with liberal doses of humour and wit, these tales will make the readers laugh, cry, rage and think.
