Editor’s Note

It has been a pleasure and a privilege to edit eleven very interesting tales, written by talented writers who deserve to see their work in print.
You will enjoy the journey as they take you to various places that exist only in their minds, which they now have skillfully crafted on paper.
Each journey is uniquely different, and will hold your interest from beginning to end.
This is the true intent of the authors, and as I read these stories, they’ve accomplished what they’ve set out to do.

To all that read this book,
I wish an escape from daily reality to a true literary experience.

Gloria J Blier


Review of my story by Anil Sawan – “She uses her magical words to take us through a world of love, admiration, devotion and obsession. The story ends on a strong note of self realization and delivers a very positive message. A good story to start the book with. I give this story 8/10

Review on “At the outset ,the new publishing house Sai-Kiran Publications must be complimented for providing a platform to the bloggers  to give vent to their talents to reach millions thru’ print media.

These bloggers  have amply proved that they have inherent skill to be a successful authors, writers or even litterateurs . However, to confine their creativity to a mere fiction , a mentioned by the publisher /editor will not do justice to their talent. Is not any fiction, imagination based on realities culled out or experienced from our  lives or nature  ?  Difference is the extent, the form of fantasy or drama is attached to such tales. In this book ,each writer appears to have given a pie of what he or she has experienced , seen or received from real  life . They are bubbling talents with “Miles to go  and promises to keep” inscribed on their pen .

Aneesha Myles Shewani  with her “The Muse” proved that she is as adept in creating a classy story or a literary piece, as she may be  creating software as a technical write with élan. She depicted an agony  of separation of a sensitive artist from his lover who was used as the muse in metaphor, culminating into an immortal piece of art. Her words “ Destiny is less cruel than circumstances”. But  is not it that at the end of the day, the destiny always prevails ? “True love is not about fulfillment and it is not about togetherness”. Correct, but then that is  platonic .”
