False Sanctuaries: Stories from the Troubled Territories of South Asia by Meenakshi Iyer from Bibliophile South Asia.

Fear lurks deep in their hearts. Writ large on their faces. When? When? When? A blast, a raging insurgency, a clash tooth-and-nail, an eye for an eye, a fight to the finish, and then And then a gory aftermath. A lot happens beyond those borders that make the insides churn.

They get up, shake off the dust and move on to fight another battle that seethes in their hearts. They have dreams, hopes, responsibilities... There are those who fulfill them within the safe, secure zones. And then there are those who struggle in an unfriendly terrain. Set across South Asia, each of the stories in this collection locates the defiant undercurrent of individual expression in people scarred by terror.
