Finally done with another gem written by Lahiri. ‘ Unaccustomed Earth’ is a collection of dazzling eight sensitive short stories where first five stories are distinct but the last three are interrelated. If you love to read short stories based on human relations then you should not miss this artistic piece of words. I totally loved the way lahiri handled her characters without leaving any fingerprints. Reading her stories was like watching a time-lapse nature video of different plants, each having its own inherent life cycle of breaking through the soil, blooming into growth or again collapsing back to earth or should I say ‘unaccustomed earth’?
