Short stories that speak

very nice collection for a car drive listen... they aren't heavy but also not light and meaningless. Jayakanthan's sympathy to specific communities of the south Indian society comes out loud and clear. very thoughtful and knacky.

கேட்கலாம்

அருமையான கதை வர்ணனை. கதைகளின் கதாபாத்திர சித்தரிபு இருந்தது.

2-3 கதைகள் சிறப்பு... மற்றவை ...சற்று தொய்வு. ஒரு முறை மட்டுமே கேட்கலாம்

An okay book!

Few emotions and expression are overdone in the audio. The stories which has a plain first person voice through out the story are the ones which are pretty good.otherwise other chapters I feel its overdone. Expecting a less dosage of expressions for jayakanthan's words from the narrator. the narrator should not express or feel more than what JK had written is what i felt. otherwise the rest of the chapters are clear and well done..

this is not an interesting read of stories for me is what i felt through out...

Jayakanthan is great as always

Suyadarisanam and window stories are awesome. His narration has just getting the situation/plot in my eyes. Great writer we have lost in our generation!
