From An-Other Land

Summary:

Given The chance, would you be ready to immigrate? A majority would probably answer ‘Yes'.

Yet, immigrants are looked at with either contempt or segregation and rarely compassion, in their motherland and abroad. Post The 2016 US elections, The rhetoric is further reverberating. From cancellation of refugee protection, zero tolerance, and undercurrent crackdown on H visas to racism, profiling, and discrimination—the resurgence of nationalism is hitting The globalized population head-on.

But what is immigration today? A question of life or death. A fleeing of persecution. A compulsion. Or mere pursuance of privilege. And, what is the USA today, especially for Indians. From An-Other Land is a reality check and an emotional guide for anyone who wants to understand modern-day immigration to the USA.

This collection of 15 short stories is all over the place and I enjoyed most of them. The detailing of people and the surroundings make you feel a part of the story, the characters that will stay with you forever. She brilliantly tells a story using the plain language of his characters while elucidating us with wonderfully descriptive adjectives which help us imagine the setting and feel the emotion of his characters. The author's beautiful style of writing keeps the stories flowing well. You'll be moved by some of the stories and other times just wish they would go on a little longer. Short story with an interesting plotline of paranoia and self-fulling prophecy at the end. I'm looking forward to future writings from the author. I recommend this book to anyone that enjoys well-written short stories.
