Colorful tales of sacrifice, downfalls and victories are revealed through the pages of author Anupam Sen Gupta's collection of short stories, “The Colours of Sound” (published by Partridge India). It is a cornucopia of fictionalized real-life encounters that define the very essence of experience as the best teacher of life.

From the hard truth of rejection for following one’s heart and breaking conventions to locating stargates and experiencing the unknown, Gupta’s book captures dimensions of contemporary urban lifestyles to the oppression of the lower caste in remote India. Each of the ten stories leaves profound messages that encourage readers to embark on their own journeys of self-reflection. Squarely portraying the vulnerable duality of humanness, with its flaws and values, the characters should appeal to many who are or have been in the same dilemmas.

An excerpt from " The Colours of Sound”:

“‘And come to think of it, people of all religion, caste, and creed come to brothels. It’s probably the only place where there is no communal intolerance. People of all religion sleep with each other. One to satisfy the hunger above the waistline and other to satisfy hunger below the waistline,’ added Ada.”

Thought provoking and insightful, “The Colours of Sound” is an enriching read infused with interesting twists, richly drawn characters and meaningful life lessons.
