All My Boys and other Stories

Som P. Ranchan (Author)
Synopsis All my Boys and Other Stories is in two parts. The first part unfolding the characters of all my boys through the eyes of the observer protagonist who happens to be their generic uncle and mentor to some extent, though transactionally a landlord as they are his lodgers is essentially in the profile and portrait mode. This part captures adolescent psychology and their group dynamics, their relationship with their parents, mostly over phone, their growth and slippage chart. The second part are stories proper; stories are for the most part psychological, sociological. One story “Song to Fellowship’ is nostalgic, celebratory, and spiritual. One story is about the visit of a mad mystic to heaven where he takes to the pulpit to teach the gods to bring about a relational interface with the mundance and begin a new chapter in the evolution of human kind. The last two stories, Sati and Parbati rework in extenso and in depth the mythic frames on the Feminine, the enshrined cultural semiotics on it in India.
