A Symphony of Chance Encounters, Sayujya Sankar

Coming of Age, Contemporary Fiction, Literature & Fiction

The world sways to an invisible music. We are the orchestra and our stories its symphony. And our loneliness is a song, which leads us through pasts and presents, towards new friends, and acquaintances…

That girl on the road swaying to an invisible rhythm…

That lady at the next table reading a book…

What’s their music?

A Symphony of Chance Encounters has suspense, love, rage, passion, contemplation and myriad human emotions sung into its stories.

A murderess. A child’s relationship with her father. An indifferent author. An unusual friendship. A couple in love. Writers exploring their creations. The fragrance of a new life; a new hope. A woman trapped in a life she does not want – will the rhythm be hers?

Their tunes merge. Their songs intertwine to create a symphony.

But, which tune do you sway to? Which melody lingers on your lips? Which story is yours? 

A Symphony Of Chance Encounters is a poetry/short story book I was desperate to read ever since discovering it. I love poetry and short stories but only if the poems and stories that are written are poignant, moving and will provoke my thoughts about life and myself and A Symphony Of Chance Encounters holds many poems that do just this. I love poetry and stories, but sadly these days poems and stories do not read as nicely as some classics, but I found with A Symphony Of Chance Encounters that they did because the words flowed beautifully from start to finish and transfixed me and compelled me from beginning to end and so I am already going to recommend this gem of a book! However, if you need more convincing then continue to read to learn more about this gem!

A Symphony Of Chance Encounters is a collection of poems and stories, around 20 and all of them are emotive, memorable poems and stories that will captivate readers for many hours on end. The arrangement of the book is exceptional as a story follows every poem, and every story is a different genre. That is one of the many reasons why I love A Symphony Of Chance Encounters because it has a wide variety of stories that are all different but incredibly entertaining.

Sayujya Sankar is an incredibly talented author; there is no doubt about this as she has proved this in her different short stories and poems. I adored how she managed to set the scene up for the story quickly and make me able to invest in the characters in the matter of a few pages. Her stories may be short, but each tale is well-developed with an excellent plot, rich characterization and compelling components that will make you fall madly in love with A Symphony of Chance Encounters!

The poems and stories laced throughout A Symphony Of Chance Encounters are so brilliant and unique that I have not been able to stop thinking about them. As soon as I would finish one I would end up re-reading it because I wanted to immerse myself in it again and understanding the true meaning. I love immersing myself in a poem and a story and reading it from different perspectives and the wonderful author Sayujya Sankar challenges readers to do this.

Sayujya Sankar is a newly discovered poet of mine, but I wish I had discovered the authors work sooner because never before have I been so transfixed by poems and short stories. I have read a lot of poems and stories in my time, especially since a young age but never have I ever been so provoked by the ones in A Symphony Of Chance Encounters, emotionally and mentally. Sankar does this with the mesmerizing prose and well developed and structured poems and stories.

Overall A Symphony Of Chance Encounters is a sensational, unique, and beautiful poetry and short story book that should not be missed, I, of course, have to award this stellar book five stars! So please, have a read of A Symphony Of Chance Encounters and get lost in the captivating words of Sayujya Sankar and be compelled to read from the very beginning to the very end.
