Book Summary of Curiosity Kills the Katha

Assessing performance of one’s student is what every teacher does many times in his/her career. But what if the teacher is a terrorist trainer and the student a suicide bomber? What if a visit to a historical place throws up an unexpected opportunity to listen to a firsthand report of the historical event from a person who was present at that time? This is the age when everyone talks about zero tolerance to corruption. How would one react to a typical malpractice at a railway booking counter? When does a deal become a steal? Or more importantly does stealing make a purchase a better deal? These and other similar questions are discussed in Curiosity Kills the Katha, a collection of humorous yet though provoking stories with surprising endings.

About the Author
Ashok Kallarakkal (Dr. T K Ashok Kumar) is a senior Management/IT professional working out of Bangalore. He is an engineering graduate from REC Calicut (at present NIT Calicut) and did his doctorate in International Business from Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Bangalore. Ashok has written a number of science fiction stories in popular regional science magazines like Shastra Keralam in his school days, but had curtailed his urge to write more, to devote time for higher education and building a career like every other middle class youth. He rediscovered his flair for writing fiction while writing innumerable sales proposals as part of his job. His dream now is to spend more and more time on creative writing and other passions from 2012 (Though this does not mean moving back to a sales job). His wife Sandhya is a lawyer turned software professional turned housewife and their only child Anjali is studying in the second grade in Bangalore.

Nirvan October 08, 2012 review from Goodreads

This collection of short stories by Ashok is very nicely written and quite compelling - perhaps because he has written stories about issues that touch us all in daily life. His writings are definitely reminiscent of O'Henry's short stories. Though it is a collection of short stories, one would no...
