Neela Scarf (The Blue Scarf) is a collection of short stories that provide insight into contemporary India from different perspectives. India is the land of several paradoxes: of close family ties and eroding relationships, of modern skyscrapers and rural settings, of unity but also diverse social and religious differences, of young people who migrate from the villages to the big city and don’t belong to either of the places. In the collection the writer, Anu Singh Choudhary, focuses mainly on the lives of Indian women who live and survive these paradoxes with their quiet resilience.
