Vignettes of Darkness is a collection of poignant tales set in Chotanagpur
“Vignettes of Darkness” by Bineeta gives us a collection of refreshing and poignant tales, each different from the other.

The 10 stories narrate the tale of very slice-of life characters like the empowered and head-strong Buni pishi, the bitter and pained Narayan, the adventurous Elize and the repentant Nirupishi. 

 
The Chotanagpur region serves as the background, where characters of the story are either born evil or suffer the consequences of murky circumstances. 
 
What really makes the book worth reading is a pervading old world charm, which we usually associate with the poetic brilliance of Tora Dutt and Kamala Das. 
 
The stories are often like a reverie, enunciating the beauty associated with lost times, making readers take a trip down memory lane.
 
The book is prices at Rs 180 and it is available at popular online stores like Flipkart, Amazon and Ebay.
