This compilation of 56 fictional stories has been interspersed, with a view to categorize these independent theme-based entertaining bits of literature, created by the author for that type of readers who do not like lengthy novels/stories. However, the three sections, namely Micro Stories, Short Stories and Long Tale trifurcating the complete book indicate to the fact that the author kept in mind the immediate availability of the time at the disposal of his valued reader at that hour of the `ever-fleeing` time. It has also been kept in mind that the piquant captians should be worth the substance below thereof. The reader may choose beforehand `the captivating item` from the List of contents provided separately for every category, vis a vis Micro Stories, Short Stories or Long Tales.

Endowed with the personality that always remains inclined towards the truest secularism, I cannot afford to prefer one religion over the other. Therefore, it is not a difficult task for me to interact with a person of any faith. I cannot skip from my tract of `humanity before religion`. Being a firm believer in the existence of a `Supreme Power`, denoted by a variety of nomenclatures, I can adjust with followers of any mainstream of faiths. Even an atheist or an agnostic would not be treated as hostile at my hands, because I perceive every person as a human being before anything else. Nevertheless, it would be safer to understand me if the person keeps in mind that I am exposed to only those mainstreams of religion as practised in India. The Principles of Life (dear to my heart): (Formed on the basis of The experience derived through interaction since the childhood, with my parents, siblings, other kin around, my teachers, friends, schoolmates; later on with my pupils, my colleagues, friends, neighbours, co-travellers in a public transport, my clients and my colleagues at Bar and last but not the least my friends at coffee house etc; and also gained through learning at various levels through books, mass media, direct observation and self introspection) 1. All human souls deserve `due respect`, as and when they come into my contact. 2. While comparing self with others, I rate my personality as `an average person`, because I always consider self to be at a little higher scale, only here or there. 3. As I am aware of the fact that I can achieve all that is essential for leading a respectable life, without elbowing others, therefore, I have never conscientiously entered into any competing fray, during the last 66 years of my life. Even the laurels of once topping the successful candidates at the University examination was bestowed on me by His Grace, without input of any additional effort on my part. Me amongst others I love to float, as I have never dreamt swimming; surely, I won’t sink, it’s my belief. I have learnt this fact about self, only through introspection. I continue to pray for this type of life ahead too, come what may. With this type of attitude at hand, I seldom find myself at unease with the presence of any person, around.
