SHORT STORIES

A collection of short stories by Debojyoti Bar

short story is a work of fiction that is usually written in prose, often in narrative format. This format tends to be more pointed than longer works of fiction, such as novellas (in the 20th and 21st century sense) and novels or books. Short story definitions based upon length differ somewhat even among professional writers, due somewhat in part to the fragmentation of the medium into genres. Since the short story format includes a wide range of genres and styles, the actual length is determined by the individual author's preference (or the story's actual needs in terms of creative trajectory or story arc) and the submission guidelines relevant to the story's actual market. Guidelines vary greatly among publishers.

Many short story writers define their work through a combination of creative, personal expression and artistic integrity. As a result, many attempt to resist categorization by genre as well as definition by numbers, finding such approaches limiting and counter-intuitive to artistic form and reasoning. As a result, definitions of the short story based upon length splinter even more when the writing process is taken into consideration.

My personal collection of short stories are based on simple events which have great impacts on our lives.I hope the readers will find it quite pleasing. Most of these stories have been written when I was attending my engineering classes, often I got bored and as I had a pen and paper nearby so I wrote down these stories as if they were my own visions. Some relate to past or present, long gone incidents whereas some are of the recent past.

In my quest to write stories many have supported me, my Ma and Baba, my siblings, my girlfriend, my bestfriend and my friends.I would like to thank you all.
