My Review - 

Three Stories and a Burial is a second book written by Arsch Sharma. I pick a short story after a long time, and I thought it would be the same as others, but the fabrications are not some general fiction I read most of the time. The narration is quite distinct and exciting. 

These stories make a reader ponder over the deep impression of society, religion, and sorrow. The first story, A Broken Idol, is my favorite; human deeds that are killing goodness in the name of religion made a man think that how broken they are, just like the broken idol who can't be worshipped. 

The Drought is the second story where people shared the fate of misery instead of friendship. Where you can do anything but still don't have the privilege to do the right task. In the author's words, Life is a phenomenon, largely an accidental one. The third story, Goldfish, is about finding oneself amid all the worldly chaos. It is a story of a man trying to figure out what he is good at.

Arsch Sharma's writing is provocative, critical, and thought-provoking. For some readers, this book seems tedious due to circuitous terms. I also think that if the author straightforwardly narrated the stories, it would leave more lasting effects. 

Overall, his work incorporated a wide range of subjects, and if you needed something offbeat to read, pick this book. I recommend it to readers who specialize in interpreting cogitative texts and corresponding religious theories.
