Authored by Indian writer Deepak Karamungikar, 'Love at first sight...' is quite a journey...
The Humming’ is a collection of thirteen intense short stories encompassing a flurry of different emotions. There’s the dark side of the human nature that comes out in ‘The Indulgence’, while the soft side of a man who loves his wife too much is portrayed in ‘The Mire’. There is a romantic tale of deception set three centuries ago, in ‘Land of Corals’ while there’s a girl who literally falls in love with the moon in ‘Moon, I Love You’. ‘The Hunt’, my personal favorite is the story of a female CIA agent and other such enchanting stories that are bound to capture the imagination of readers of all ages. It is going to take a long time for readers to forget each one of these intense experiences.
