The Miracle and Other Stories

K.S. Duggal (Author)
Synopsis K S Duggal's short stories form a collage of human emotions abounding in, joys and sorrows, agony and ecstasy.  His pen delves deep into the bottom of human heart and brings out 'it's every nuance, wonderfully woven in the fabric of imagery.  Always a poet at heart, Duggal Blends exquisite lyricism with emotions of high idealism, moral self-examination and a subtle awareness of beauty.  This explains the external values of truth and beauty that swarm in his short stories which leapfrog each other.  No wonder, khuswant Singh comments, "Duggal evolved a lyrical style of prose-writing of his own.  In many of his stories the same line appears again and again as a refrain, as they do in poetry.  They give his stories a haunting melody unknown in works of other story writers."
