Each one of us, in one way or another, is obsessed- whether by the intricacies of life or the finality of death. We are plagued by our thirst for control, driven by our hunger for love and addicted to the demons that ultimately consume us. A sensitive portrayal of one’s deepestemotions, this collection of stories explores the psyche of an individual...their most vivid desires, most profound fears and the ultimate revelation of their darkest secrets.

OBSESSION brings together love and lust, betrayal and hurt, grief, life and longing. They are stories that strip the human spirit of all pretence, exposing shame and sorrow, desire and desperation. Woven around characters that could well be you and I, these are modern day chronicles of everyday heroes, fallen or exalted. Stories that thrust us towards introspection and self-realisation, these are narratives that force us to explore the hidden us, and the truths that we often refuse to see.

OBSESSION is one man’s quest to create the perfect wife, a widow’s desperate attempts to remove the shackles of greed or anther's man’s perspective of love. OBSESSION runs the gamut of human experience and endeavour and expression, creating a tempestuous display of heat and ice and launching the reader into a familiar yet sombre world.

About The Author's:Gurpartap Khairah believes a writer should be politically incorrect and while writing, makes every e ort to say the worst in the best possible manner. Gurpartap teaches English literature in Hindu college, Amritsar. He loves his job because it keeps him in constant touch with the youth and the current ‘modern’ lingo.

Bishwa Sigdel grew up in the dusty lanes of Banepa, in Nepal. An early passion for the Classics finally led him to writing. An ardent fan of Marquez and Neruda, Bishwa likes nothing better than hunting for books in dusty libraries or old city bookstalls.

Stormy Hazarika grew up in the lush tea estates of Assam. An aspiring poet, Hazarika’s passions are writing, reading and more reading! She feels her head is constantly buzzing with plots, characters and loose ends and MS Word is the only release for this pressure.

Suraj Sinha is an aeronautical engineer turned banker. Born in Bihar, he grew up listening to folk stories. An avid reader of Magic Realism, fantasy, history and satire, he spends quality time reading the likes of Marquez, Rushdie, Faulkner, Tolkien and Joseph Heller. Inspired by everyday life and his little son, he loves the process of writing more than anything else.
