THE CLOUDMAKER
Subrat Das

A lady fish-vendor coming to terms with the reality of life, a boy from the Maidan seeking his own moorings, an old man finding solace in digging the earth for his lost son, or a quirky character loitering in a market complex looking for a parcel that is never to arrive . . . The collection of fifteen short stories in The Cloudmaker predominantly deals with the theme of loss in human life. Its characters use loss as a philosophical journey to overcome their inner turmoil. For them loss is not an unsettling experience, rather it is as much a part of their everyday living. In facing loss there is an understated heroism in each of them—a spirit that never loses a mission. For anyone wishing to keep the never-say-die spirit enlivened, The Cloudmaker is an immensely encouraging read in its truest sense.

Subrat Das is a Civil Servant who passed out from JNU, India. He lives in Kolkata with his loving and lively wife and two chattering daughters who insist that they have brought calmness to his life, so essential for writing.
