The OverTakers

Nothing is certain in Wasi Ahmed\'s world where extraordinary people and events hide behind simple exteriors. The stories are like crafted traps which take the reader into a world that everyday life hides. A milkman beaten up by angry crowd for adding water to his milk can\'t be dumped into any manhole as his body suddenly gets bigger and heavier on his tormentors’ shoulders … a crippled and deviant war veteran stretches out his hand to visitors in the manner of begging … howling dogs who made sleep impossible are missed even more when they are killed and silence reigns … a young man raises midget bonsais as a mirror of his failed ambitions but they keep growing, shooting higher and higher… Written in nonchalant prose mixed with a dark laconic humor, these stories are both bold and exquisite in dealing with social and personal realities.
