Jola Naibi

Writer and amateur photog. I seek to inspire and inform with the words I write and share and the photos I take. I have written a book of short stories: Terra Cotta Beauty, and I am working on a lot more. Reading and writing fuel my energy. In reading, I explore this vast and diverse world, in writing, I employ my over-active imagination and address the 'what-if' questions that life often throws at us.

There are so many things I can say about Rohinton Mistry’s writing. Clever, thoughtful, insightful. In a simple yet powerful way, Mr. Mistry’s writing has made ordinary events extraordinary and Tales from Firozsha Baag is no exception. The stories in this book are first class: unforgettable tales set in India, that highlight the vicissitudes of life.

“The other place is not ready. Might never be. Nothing is certain in life. Only birth, marriage, and death, my poor mother used to say. At our age you want to go begging again for rooms in dharmsaalas?”
