1 Keki N. Daruwalla
Daniell Comes to Judgement: New and Vintage Daruwalla
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789385285592; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Daniell Comes to Judgment: New and Vintage Daruwalla is a collection of short stories by Keki N. Daruwalla, the acclaimed poet-cum-novelist of our time. There are new stories here written especially for this book in a span of less than two months and perennial favourites (of vintage worth) still relevant in today's changed times. The collection showcases the author's enduring range.The new stories are first person narratives and, with the exception of one, voices of women-city women-putting into words their moods and memories. The author has deliberately shunned the violence-factor in this collection. In fact 'Bars', a story included in this volume, is a commentary on the forces of intolerance straining the social fabric. Coming to the perennial favourites, they are Vintage Keki Daruwalla; vignettes from the vast repository of a wordsmith who can straddle myth and reality with ease and finesse, breathe life into metaphors, coalesce fact and fancy and still sound fascinatingly credible, with his patent black humour well in place. The collection includes stories where fantasy and myth transport one to the pre-language, pre-script era; to amphibious trains and an island of birds. In short, the master storyteller weaves his magic yet again. Printed Pages: 216. 111054

2 Keki N. Daruwalla
Islands: Short Stories
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789384030322; Softcover; New; 
Keki N. Daruwallas short stories circle around islands-solitary tracts of land, self-contained mini-continents. Sometimes, these autonomous landmasses are conjured up in a sadhus third-eye- Yogananda builds them like he would a dream scape. Sometimes, they transform into objects of desire Arnaaz sails towards the declining sun, in search of an islet of aloneness and youth. Sometimes, they come with the promise of abundance Vidyarthi scours his reef for a magic shrub. And sometimes, they silently disappear Santa Xavier is swept away by blustery winds and rumours.Through these stories, each linked, each disparate, Daruwalla asks what it means to abandon an island or inhabit one. He also asks what it means to allow an island to sail within us. For each of the characters is on a private journey, a reclusive flight inwards, towards an isle of peace, an isle beyond questions of faith and unbelief, an isle past remembrance and forgetting.Ultimately, each character is an island unto himself or herself, from the retiring vagrant on bird island, to Dinaz, feeling her way on her own through a fast receding past, to the wild Khampa, severed from his people, who realises there must be worse things than being alone, but I dont know what they are.In these short stories, Daruwallas love for the sea becomes evident, as also his yearning for a kind of solitude, which evades us in this overcrowded century. Equally, in a style rich in humour, irony and compassion, his preoccupation with the modern human condition comes to the fore-its drift away from an anchoring mainland, its island-like seclusion, its quiet search for fullness. 109671
