It is just that many people do not observe and record them. The book contains stories that hold up a mirror to every characteristic of humanity, generosity, selfishness, greed, contentment, and ambition. These are tales of peoples behavior and reactions in ordinary circumstances and during the crisis. She tells the story of a banyan tree in a remote village in Karnataka that gives shelter to travellers under its shade, and of the man who sits on a stone under the tree and lets passersby share the seat and their troubles with him, acting as a counselor to them, letting them unburden their worries on him for a while. There are stories of women trying to make a difference in the community against odds, of acts of selfishness and generosity in times of disaster, of young professionals and the attitudes that make some of them succeed in the corporate race.
