The Hunt – collection of short stories describes the working conditions of women from rural areas in search of work. Caught in the nets of the ‘hunters’ in the bus–stands and railway stations, they were thrown into the banian companies and cotton mills of Tirupur where life is intolerably miserable. Another story in the collection, The Sharon Style exposes yet another kind of ‘ hunt’ . Fanned by the fire of caste fanaticism, to save the honour of their own caste, people consider inter-caste marriage, a blemish on their honour. Many a young plant withers in this caste storm. The story, Avathaar portrays the menace of child- marriage that is still alive and the helplessness of the good people who try to stop them.
