'SANDS OF TIME' is a collection of twelve interesting stories which bring out the different moods and moments in the lives of women.
Sands of time takes us through the lives of twelve women. They are not mere characters. They are human beings in flesh n blood, that we see around us. We have met them may be as friends, relatives, neighbors or news items. But yes, they are there.
There is a lot of sincerity in the stories. The stories reinforces the importance of women education, freedom, empowerment and awareness. Authoress brings into light, those necessities which were neglected or considered nominal. Every aspect of a woman is depicted with finesse. Needless to say that the writing style is quite engaging. She has already proved herself.
The vile side of womanhood could also have been shown in a story. It would have been an icing on the cake. Authoress has done her part meticulously, but the remaining part was disappointing. Right from proofreading and typesetting to the layout of the book, least care was taken to allure the reader. It is said that one should not judge a book by its cover. Sands of time is a quintessential example of the same. I am forced to take half a star.
