2 Peg Ke Baad brings together 14 short stories that happened after 2 pegs, in an inebriated state. World’s greatest stories are created when people are high – masterpieces are painted, universal truths are realised, models on billboards are befriended, lovers are united, butts are kicked, confessions are made, and relationships are sorted.
The book started as a blog with people from across the world sharing their stories, ideas, confessions and beliefs, and the elixir of the 14 best stories is here to reveal what lies beyond a conscious mind.
Though the book does not intend to encourage drinking alcohol in any sense, here’s to celebrate every emotion that kicks after a few pegs. Cheers!!
Liquor is a strange thing. It will make you meet the strangest people around. It can also help you to find your inner ‘strange’ as well. 2 peg ke baad is a pretty unique attempt to write an anthology containing 14 stories on that very theme, the stories that rises after ‘2 peg ke baad’.
Simple language and uniqueness of stories, becomes the USP of the book. This is the second book from the author and is a brilliant one. All the stories, focus on different aspects of alcohol and showcases the true reality of life. Some of the stories are filled with sarcasm as well. Fun filled moments, thought provoking scenes and brilliant showcase of writing sums up the overall experience of the book.
Book cover and the blurb is another thing that adds up to the beauty. I do remember that the owner of Srishti Publication (The Publisher of the book) did post few of the tentative book covers and this one was chosen out from the public’s opinion. These are the kind of things that contributes to the overall success of the book.
I would suggest everyone to read this book because, first of all, who doesn’t like to read short stories and another thing is that this book will take you on a journey of numerous emotions and you’ll love them all.
