Golf as a Metaphor for Life
Each of the ten tales in this collection has a plot connected with the game of golf. The stories are also linked by an underlying theme based on the element of chance altering ordinary course of events. The appearance of a common character in almost all of them serves to heighten a sense of involvement as the different plots unfold.
‘With a fine eye for detail and nuances in the human condition, as seen through the protagonists in each story, Parmarsan S. Thangkhiew’s narrations weave seamlessly through golf, a prince among sports. Often, the author’s wry sense of humor is also made all too evident, an exercise that is rare among present day Indian writers writing in English. A toast of a read’ Dhruba Hazarika, author of Luck -http://indianshortstoryinenglish.com/reviews/dhruba-hazarika-luck/
