Review : Wise & Otherwise by Sudha Murty

This is a collection of 50  short stories which reflect the good, bad and ugly facets of human nature. Most of the stories are 2 to 3 pages long,  but  provide glimpses of society today.

One thought provoking story is "The truth about women"  , Page 144 , where she reflects that though women have equal rights on paper, in reality their status is different in India and harassment from narrow minded men is common.  She also notes that in countries where women are truly treated fairly and with respect are those which also enjoy the high per capita income.
