Virginia Woolf

Monday or Tuesday by Virginia WoolfPublished by Hogarth in 1921, Monday or Tuesday is a collection of eight short stories. The set includes the title piece, Monday or Tuesday, which, along with Blue and Green, and, to a lesser extent, A Haunted House, suggest themselves as literary pastiches, closer to impressionism than conventional, plot-driven episodes. Even the longer stories, such as A Society and An Unwritten Novel are insular, relying on stream of consciousness methods to create an approach to expressing a character's feeling towards the exterior world. Where ordinarily, a short story collection will provide a suitable...

The Land Unknown

Raja Sharma

The Land Unknown by Raja SharmaThe memories of our first meeting are still fresh in my mind. I recall that day when Sameer had met me at the bus stand in front of the Chelsea Art College. It was very nice meeting him there. He was around twenty two I believe, a very handsome young man, full of fun and laughter. He was very friendly and full of self-confidence. He seemed to be quite enthusiastic, as if aspiring to fly in the air. It was just a casual conversation when we started. After greeting each other, we got introduced.
