Inked Thoughts by Samrudhi Dash

Inked Thoughts, an incredible conglomerate of Letters from across the globe published by The Impish Lass Publishing House, Mumbai, is conceptualized and edited by Samrudhi Dash who is one of the promising authors in India and an editor of the Publishing House. The anthology is actually an Epistolary Fiction.

In the anthology, Samrudhi with her editing skills has tried to revive the fading glory of the epistolary genre. She, as a kid, got fascinated by Samuel Richardson’s Pamela and it was in her mind to ink the same whenever she came through her letters from her parents and friends that nowadays she misses as telephone, smartphone and Internet robbed the personal touch.

Inked Thoughts is a compilation of 90 submissions from 60 vibrant and creative authors from across the globe. Its spectrum, range and variety of subject is extraordinary and breathtaking.

Each and every letter in this compilation has its own uniqueness and deserves equal applause. It triggers the feeling of personal touch, though letters have became a thing of the past.

The Night of Broken Glass – Plight of 'Paradise' lost in tyranny, bondage & conflict!

I have no hesitation in recommending this book to all those who lived in the days of hand-written letters delivered by the postman on his bicycle. And, for those unfortunate people also who were born much later and missed that experience.
