My Jiffies,Book Review,Priyanka Sharma Kaintura
When you flip through these pages, you may find instances from an emotional or physical journey that you might have undertaken in your life.

Our lives are filled with tiny moments. Some pass by us unnoticed, others build up to something more significant. With these moments of joy, pain, distress and longing we define our lives. Author Priyanka Sharma Kaintura attempts to present these moments to us in her book My Jiffies. A question, a walk alone, or short embrace, all these make for jiffies in our lives.

The book has seven categories which include orations, monologues, dialogues and pathos. It’s a unique format of presenting short stories and a refreshing change from the ordinary. In most of the stories, nothing earth-shattering happens; yet it’s the simplicity of the tales that lingers long in the mind of the reader. In one such story, Deep Conversations, an aunt tries to explain to his nephew what love is in the most innocent manner. Flipping through the pages, you may find instances of an emotional journey that you might have undertaken in your life. While the stories are lucid, the poems could have been more polished.
