About the Book: 

Based on the real life experiences at a cutting edge level in the field of policing, various poignant facets of human life have been vividly carved out to carry the reader through multifarious distressing issues in the arena of Policing. Dominant socio-political mirages, dichotomies of policy sub-culture and response capacity deficits that have been a constant niggling factor and a source of complex perplexity for the common man have been very subtly  woven in short stories in order to create a cogency and suitable congruity that is much desired to set things in their proper perspective.It makes an interesting reading for those who wish to see police as an effective and pertinent service provider. The format of short story has been used to bring out the silent reverberations that become the drivers of change.
