Tiger in the Portico and Other Storiesby: Anju Darshini
“Tiger in the Portico” is neither the heroic story of defeating a man-eater nor is it a story of bloodshed where the mammal emerges victorious. In fact, it is just the reverse – it is about two sisters running for their lives when they come face to face with a tiger. They run, and the tiger runs too! Things take a dramatic turn when the tiger comes in contact with a fanatic lover, a lousy forest officer and a bunch of noisy villagers. What happens next? Who escapes finally? The tiger or the girls?
In Anju Darshini’s beguiling short story collection, dreams and reality blur, exploring the dark and strange corners of our minds. Concentrated mostly in the pockets of downtown India, the stories wrap the extraordinary within the ordinary!
