"I totally loved this book. It was not at all what I expected from the title but I was curious enough to look at the first chapter. Following that, I wanted to know more and was captivated by the people within. Every chapter was a story in itself, and every story was different in style and intrigue. At times I felt like the fly on the wall peeping in on private lives. It made me laugh and it made me feel sad. It also ran true to the real lives of every day people and I believe I could see myself in some of the personalities. This book could be given as a gift for any occasion, especially to the one who finds it difficult to handle reading much at a given time. The short condensed stories flow to life and carry you away then end, all in one chapter. At times you wish you could read more but by then you are caught up in the next story and just want to find out what happens where you are. Wonderful reading!"

Mr. Sharma's novel The Tailor's Needle, published by Penguin in India, has received the following praise, which captures much of the charm of this story collection as well: Gis Hoyle, a novelist and reviewer, observes that in the novel "The whole is held together by a gently mocking and yet ultimately compassionate narrative voice, which gives the reader a brief and enchanting glimpse into a world now gone, with all its faults – and all that might be loved in it, too."
