“Nothing so liberalizes a man and expands the kindly instincts that nature put in him as travel and contact with many kinds of people,” Mark Twain once said. Travelling enriches one’s life with the new sights, sounds and experiences gleaned from voyaging around the world. These are the gifts that author Subba Rao brings back from his own journeys to share with his readers in his new book, From Donkey’s Mouth and Other Short Stories.

In his chronicles, Rao assumes the name of Juggernaut and takes his readers on a trip that will take them to Hawaii’s Big Island, and then across the Pacific to explore the incredible sights of India. The Caribbean also awaits Rao’s readers, as well as various scenic locales in America. There they will witness events great and small, sometimes from the perspective of a bystander, other times directly at the fore, and reliving Rao’s myriad experiences in exotic and distant lands. Humor and excitement await readers in the multitude of tales, as diverse as the regions of the world they are set in, they will see in the pages of Rao’s book.

For travel enthusiasts as well as those looking for a laugh, Rao’s work will definitely make for an engaging and entertaining reading experience. From Donkey’s Mouth and Other Short Stories promises to take them on an intercontinental journey unlike any other.
