My Jiffies, Narration of Moments, Unadulterated and Unpackaged by Priyanka Sharma Kaintura is the fruit of a young authors pen to depict the symphony of life through the tales and verses and attempts to be a sweet companion, which eases loneliness and suffering in a tasty backdrop of the conditions that accompanies our whole existence.
We could compare itself to a menu and it is thanks to the themes chosen by the writer that we can peek into the lives of other men and women, who are just like us, who at times are searching for the true love or who are confused, disillusioned or are hopeful.
Some of the protagonists of the book is, in fact, the dark side of the man and of course the woman, who behind the apparent, ordered respectability or overt bonhomie conceals treachery, deception and perversion. But the author is sympathetic and never condemns really, but on the contrary, try a little indulgence for everyone, even the most unpleasant ones are narrated with ruthless humor, and place all of them in small and very small middle class environments, in places tending to the squalid.
Every bite on whichever page your turn will satiate the most demanding reader, but in the end, it will be the only important thing, the same for everyone, that life should be savored bit by bit, just like the narratives and the poems written to perfection and served with love.
It’s difficult to give an unequivocal opinion on the different stories, but all are delicious in their own way. The author has managed to blend in a unique fashion of the themes and tells of the men and women that encompasses the many shades of life.
The author has her own unique style, who manages to do justice to the intent of this anthology that surprises the reader page after page with the rare gift to absorb the reader with an original narrative, or perhaps it would be more correct to say many original narratives, where the people would transmit sensations comforting the insatiable reader through the stories.
Contrary to what you can expect these stories are not truncated opening words or extracts of complex stories but clips from conclusive, ironic and amusing life, with the rhythms of romance, where each one is different in style and form, but all united by the marriage of tales and verses that gives sweet and spicy sensations and emotions with a single secret ingredient called the love.
The tales and verses has declined in a winning recipe artfully combining the flavors and manages to summon the magic that brings to places, people and stories each one different and personal, but all to feast on page after page.
The small truths, including emotional disappointments and many good lines of this anthology can bring a smile to the difficulties. Between hope and courage to face the reality these tales are appetizing to savour one behind the other or re-read when you want to find some kind of serenity and excitement, but with a great emotional impact!
Irony and lightness are the sign that distinguishes the book along with a deep understanding of not only of the soul but also the habits, customs, ways of life, talking and thinking. Every page has something different from the other, meaning that the usual smiling lightness joins a trace of bitterness that inevitably turns into sarcasm and the usual irony.
